The master suite in my third floor (no elevator) condo is spacious,light,quiet and welcoming. Queen bed for your comfort.
You are welcome to share living space with Thriller, the black cat, and me. Additionally, Patrick is here Monday-Thursdays...off to work early each morning. Other bnb guest on Fri,Sat.Sun. (they share my bath, you have your private bath)
Dolores Park, Mission Dolores, the trendy Valencia Street corridor are all just over a block away. Lots of new and established restaurants near by including Delfina, Tartine Bakery, and so many others.
Walk to the Castro, Noe Valley and more.
This is a transportation-rich area.
J-Church Muni line is 1.5 blocks away,
BART is an easy walk, buses abound.
The F-Line is an easy walk to Market Street. Take it to Fisherman's Wharf (do get off for a visit to the Ferry Building at the foot of Market St. Locals are seen here rather than at the Wharf or Pier 39 :) Old and imported street cars travel above ground (as opposed to BART and the J-Church,etc. which go underground on Market St.) The Embarcadero is very lively. It's where you depart to Alcatraz and to other ferry destinations.
SF water is EXcellent...no need to buy bottles. Our HetchHetchy/Yosemite water tests better than most paid-for-by-the-bottle water. I never use a filter and always drink from the faucet.
SF weather is variable. By which I mean it changes from minute to minute, street to street.
FAR TOO MANY visitors have to buy extra layers here to be comfortable (yes, even in summer - in fact,
especially in summer when the fog rolls in -
it's why Mark Twain is quoted as having said "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco!)
Parking - Hoff St x 17th is one of the closest. You might check parkopedia ap as well.

Jan is a wonderful host. Everything was super convenient and comfortable. You can't beat the location of this place either. Mission Dolores is probably my favorite part of SF. Highly recommend staying with Jan on your next trip to SF.
everything was perfect! great location and friendly host.
Jan was an excellent host, her place is perfectly located near all the cool stuff in the Mission. Thriller, her cat, was adorable. We had plenty of privacy with a big bedroom and private bath. Parking was initially a challenge, but we got the hang of it by parking along Delores Park. We'd highly recommend going with Jan!
Our stay at Jan’s house was wonderful. She is a great host and both the place and the neighborhood were just perfect ! We will happily come back.
Jan was a great host, my parents stayed there for 2 weeks and it was the way perfect to discover SF. The apartment is very well located and super quiet.
Great host, great room, great location. Would do again!
Our stay was perfect. Jan has a wonderful and comfortable space to enjoy a great trip to San Francisco. We were close to several fabulous restaurants, drinking spots, Dolores Park, bi-rite grocery, etc. I've never used Airbnb before but, this is the only way I will go from here on out!
Jan's home is in the perfect spot to visit San Francisco / Mission Dolores. Check-in was really easy and she went out of her way to let me store some bags in the closet when I went away for an overnight elsewhere. The place is clean, bright, sunny, and very comfortable.
Our recent stay (3 nights/4days) with Jan, in all fairness, needs to be broken down into 3 parts: The physical premises; the neighborhood; and our 2 hosts, Jan & Thriller. The premises: 2 flights of stairs up to the "penthouse suite," decorated w/tasteful art & thriving plants, sets stage for condo's interior. The condo, itself, is roomy, immaculate, and delightfully appointed. Our bedroom & private bathroom was more than we had hoped for; and certainly the equal to or better than 95% of the hotel rooms might have fetched us at a rate in excess of $200/night. We had access to the well-stocked & outfitted kitchen, which proved invaluable as we succumbed to the temptations of the nearby homemade ice cream shop as well as the local, marvelous market. Which segues into The Neighborhood: Delightful! Chocked full of terrific, affordable restaurants (over 15 within 2 blocks!), 1 block to a charming park; bus stops every block on 18th st.; a 4 block walk from BART station; beautiful old buildings imaginatively architected & tastefully maintained; each with its own locked security gate; safe & friendly feeling. Which leads us to our 2 hosts, Jan & Thriller-The Best! Jan is one of the friendliest and most interesting people we have ever met. She helped us with places to visit, how to get there (she has a treasure trove of maps and guide books); and shares her charming digs with Thriller---her black and very personable cat. Worth noting: both Jan & Thriller are quite fond of Lavender/ Honey ice cream from the nearby ice cream shop. Jan is involved in her community on many levels and is an avid hiker, to boot. Thus, she will often not be home when you are there. That said, when she is home she requires her own space (time) to be left alone to pursue her many interests; so don't plan on spending long stretches of time with her in idle chatter. Thriller, on the other hand, is quite eager to occupy as much of your time as you are willing to share with him; and loves to hear about all the various places you spent your day visiting. We are so taken with the premises, the neighborhood, and our 2 delightful hosts that we've decided to make this an annual vacation visit, and are already eagerly making plans for our stay with them next year.
Our stay with Jan was very pleasant to say the least. My first impression was how clean and neat her home was when we arrived. Jan was very responsive to my emails and phone calls before and during the trip. She offered fresh coffee, tea, fruit and cereal each morning which was quite nice. The surrounding neighborhood was also enjoyable with a large variety of food and restaurants as well as close proximity to public transit. We truly don't have any complaints.
