We affectionately call the house a post-apocalyptic retreat because it embodies the qualities of rebirth and healing.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It was a pleasure staying with Opal. She is very knowledgeable about the area and was helpful in planning our activities. She provided a safe and comfortable home base to explore the city from.

  • Opal Essence is an quintessential San Francisco experience. Her home is filled with eclectic art and wall painting that represents the Opal essence experience. The bedroom is beautifully decorated with four-poster and furnishing. The home sitting on the edge of a hill offering great views of the bay and Visitacion Valley. Opal is very accommodating and flexible.

  • Opal was an excellent host. She made our experience in San Francisco a delightful one by recommending places to go and things to do. She was very kind and her house was amazing. The pictures do not do it justice.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Opal's place this past memorial day weekend (little did we know that it was Golden Gate Bridge's 75th anniversary. We were just in time for the festivities and amazing fireworks/light show) and like what everyone else said, it made the trip to SF memorable and rejuvenating. This is exactly what we needed after a 6 hour drive from LA and after zig zagging through the confusing one way and steep streets of the city. Opal was a great at explaining everything and she's generous for sharing her sauna and flotation tank with us, though we did not get a chance to use it. Since my gf and my stay in SF was very short, we did not get to enjoy much of the house as we should have. An hour to an hour and a half is recommended for the flotation tank, but my gf and I got so tired after everyday we were there that we didn't spare 10 mins for it. Nevertheless, not only the house, the art and utilities were interesting, waking up to the smell of curry or some sort of middle eastern food was appealing to me as well. To sum up, I had a cozy time at Opal's house and would definitely consider coming back just for the flotation tank.

  • Opal is a gracious professional host. Her home is well appointed with amenities and beautifully situated overlooking the city. We had great conversation and I will be back

  • I am not usually one that gives raving reviews, but my stay with Opal was extremely rewarding. She went out of her way to make me feel welcome and is great at building a family-like atmosphere. The Sauna, floating tank, cinema projector and beautiful artwork throughout the house round the picture up!
    Would come back any time!!!

  • Opal and her loveable pooch Appollo were the perfect hosts. This is a special place...from the lovely gardens, funky murals, historic presence, wonderful art, and fantastic rooms. Come and experience the peace...and be sure to take a stroll through the Visitacion Valley Greenway, just a half block away.

I am honored to be the caretaker of the house that Dr. Blanche M. Baker lived in and I am keeping her spirit alive. I am a progressive thinker and love good conversations. I am surrounded by amazing people that live and play life to the fullest. I volunteer at my local elementary school and mentor nine year old students to make the choice of non-violence. I garden in the Vis Valley Greenway. I designed a native plant garden for Recology, the dump in San Francisco. I create photograms, a photographic process that does not use a camera. I am one of the founding members of DUSTFISH, a Burningman Camp that promote LIVE music on the playa and in San Francisco. I believe in the health benefits of floating in floatation tanks. I love to listen, learn and laugh. I've lived in San Francisco for over 30 years and enjoy sharing my knowledge of the city with others.
