Venture from the house and walk 1.5 blocks to take 14 Mission, a bus line, that travels from one end of San Francisco, from the borders of Daly City, into the midst of vibrant Mission District with its summertime Carnival Fairs, edgy museums, bohemian culture and electrifying vibes, and to the last embarkation in Embarcadero which kisses the waters of the San Francisco Bay and is the heart of downtown San Francisco. Take the adventurous ride on this famous bus line and visit various S.F. districts en route. Or, walk four blocks to Glen Park Bart station and take the Bart lines that travel to SF International airport and within the City as well as various Bay Area cities, locations and destinations.

Guest access

Please note that the kitchen is a shared space and that people who are cooking and needing the kitchen table and counter to prepare, cook and eat their meal have first priority to be in the kitchen. Since there are several guests and one kitchen, I expect everyone to cooperate in order to have a pleasant stay.

Please do not hang out at the kitchen during these time slots: 7am to 10am during breakfast hours, 11am to 2pm lunch time during lunch time and 4pm to 9pm during dinner time. During these time slots please do not stay in the kitchen to work on your computer or hang out unless you are preparing or eating your meal even if no one else is at the kitchen.

In addition, people who do not have their own mini fridge have first priority use of the kitchen and downstairs fridges. If you have a private room with a mini fridge please limit your use of the kitchen and downstairs fridges.

Interaction with guests

Limited due to travel schedule.

I stayed here last year for 3 months and had a great experience so decided to book a room again when I was in between house hunting and settling down in SF. Compared to other experiences I had with long term Airbnb, Maria seemed to be more selective with her tenants. Everyone in the house during my stay were like minded young professional and students which made me feel comfortable. I rarely got to see her but whenever I needed anything she was only a phone call away or responded promptly within 24 hours. If you are just settling down in the bay and have a hectic schedule this is a great place. I would def come back here again

This is a great hostel-like experience. It's in an old well-used building with rooms on the street level and one above. Eclectic - four unique floor finishes on the upper one alone. Set up for longer term stays. Interns, people looking for apartments (which can take many weeks here in SF), short term giggers, internationals and the like were staying there. Friendly types all. I had room 4, which you enter through the huge, fully equipped kitchen; big, its own bathroom & closet, sliding (sort of) door onto a sort of patio. The room styles go from there to a double-occupancy screened off section near the front door. The hot water is hot and no waiting. Everyone is quiet - house rules; people come and go at all hours and use the blender - we all do what we need to do and respect others' needs. Maria is optimistic about the rooms, and works hard and energetically to keep things in order. She may not be on site at any moment, but is always right there when needed, and replies to emails/texts within about two minutes. She's got the vibe sorted out. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for a month and it was a basic but comfortable stay for me. This was probably the best bedroom in the house, with its own bathroom and fridge, so you feel quite at home and you have your privacy. I had the most interaction with Victor who was very helpful and hospitable. I only met Maria later but she was very friendly as well. Possibly the only drawbacks are that this room is right next to the common kitchen area, so quite often I was awoken or unable to sleep because of other guests talking outside (ear plugs might help if you are a light sleeper), and that it was quite a trek to the Glen Park bart station (but if you do go there, you might as well pay a visit to La Corneta, one of SF's best burritos, which is a stone's throw from the bart). That said, the bus stops are much nearer, and there you can find a number of buses that run through the Mission and to the city.

First impression: at first I was a bit iffy.The side walks weren't kept clean except infront of Maria's house . I also appreciate how she keeps a bright light on all night. Parking can get tough late at night. The room is cozy a little musty but it's clean . Sheets clean , blanket and toilet is clean wich is imp . The picture appears brighter than the actual room and the yard needs some trimming but Maria's warm personality added some ambiance . Grade : B- Neighborhood : my first question to Maria and I'm glad she gave an honest answer was safety . 3 incidence in 3 years wich is pretty good and could have been avoided. After day one the neighborhood did not feel 3 tips: don't leave valuables in the car and don't go galavanting late at night . The bus stop is near but it's not close by it's still a bit of a hike . But yeah you can get to ne where in the city from here. Neighbor is a policeman . Grade C The house : their were 11 people total during my stay but I tell you it felt like there wss only me and the caretaker. Privacy and noise level is awsome perfect for studying and sleeping . You have everything you need in the common areas . The water pressure is excellent I enjoyed my showrs. The stove worked perfectly and trash was kept properly Grade B Experience : for 40 some at night I had a comfortable rest area my own bathroom and a well functional kitchen . Yah it's not hotel standards but it felt like I had my own house. Grade : B+ Thank you for allowing me to stay at your home .

My husband and I stayed for a week. The room was comfortable and the other guests in the house were courteous. We rented a car, but with a little planning we could have used only public transportation for all our San Fran touring, since there are several close bus stops and one metro/train stop. The bus ride to downtown is a bit long, but it is worth not having to find and pay for parking.

Our 29 days at Maria's place were comfortable. The house was clean and convenient for our needs with buses and the BART very near by. And the price was right.

Hello, I have always dreamt of having such a website available to feature our houses. I am delighted that such a format exists!! Update: Wow, it is almost 7 years since I joined airbnb. As an airbnb host during those near 7 years, I have met incredible and amazing people…
