We live in a large, very quiet 1906 apartment with 13' ceilings, a working fireplace, sunny rooms with lots of plants, and an aquarium. There are always orchids in bloom. I am an art rep and the apartment is filed with original artworks.
We have a great kitchen, lots of cookware and staples if you want to cook. There is always coffee and tea for the mornings and local wines to share with guests. I am happy to provide some breakfast items in the morning - ( let me know what you would like ahead of your arrival - bagels, yogurt, cereal, etc). If you prefer there are several cafes right outside on the street that offer a full breakfast menu.
Your private room is fully furnished with a very comfortable twin size bed, TV, working fireplace, wifi and fresh linens. The room is very sunny and warm. There are also two plush chaise that are great for reading and sipping wine by the fire - just ask me and I'll build a fire in the fireplace for you to enjoy! Everyone loves the sunny, shared bathroom which has lots of hot water and great water pressure.

I recommend taking on of the van shuttle services from the airport - $20 inc tip; a taxi will cost up to $60. Tell the driver the address, and zip code (94115), and you should be at the apartment in about an hour depending on who gets dropped off first, etc. A taxi will get you here in about 20-30 minutes

Great location and great host. I enjoyed my very comfortable stay.
Johnny has a gorgeous old apartment. It was a beautiful place to stay, with lots of original art,light and space throughout. Johnny was kind and accommodating to my needs and stored my luggage while I took off for a few days. I stayed longer than planned as everything was made really easy and the location is great. I'm a light sleeper so the only issue for me was street noise and the bed being too short for my six foot long self. I knew these things in advance so they're not complaints, just a heads up to others who may prefer silence at night. Thank you all for a great, memorable stay in San Fran!
Great stay as described below.
Had a great stay with Johnny in SF! The apartment is located in a wonderful neighborhood of the city, close to great restaurants and shops. He was welcoming, prepared for every need I might have had, and an incredibly gracious host. I highly recommend staying with Johnny if you find yourself in need of a room in SF!
I really enjoyed my stay at Johnny's home. The neighborhood is very safe and location close to restaurants and coffee shops. Fillmore is just 4 blocks. It is street parking and once I got the hang of it, I did not have issues finding a spot to park unlike some other SFO neighborhoods. Both he and Mark were very helpful ... giving me as much information as I asked for yet giving me as much privacy as I wanted. The place has beautiful artwork with exotic plants. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/tools, tea etc. The shared bathroom was not an issue since everyone had a different schedule.
I loved it and will definitely be back.
We really enjoyed our stay with Johnny in SF. He was very helpful and accommodating - he was friendly but also gave us as much privacy as we wanted.
The bed was a little small, but we knew that before we arrived and it made for cozy sleeping. The kitchen is well decked out, as is the rest of the house - beautifully decorated.
One thing we really enjoyed was looking out the window onto the street and waking up to the bustling activity below.
The house was in a good location, very easy access to transport and its a fun city to walk around & observe. Pacific Heights is a slightly ritzy suburb but if you're exploring the Mission and Castro, you'll get a true SF experience.
We loved it and will be back for sure.
Johnny was an awesome host with a very outgoing and friendly personality who always made sure I had everything that I needed. The place was exactly as advertised including a very helpful housekeeper who always offered coffee or breakfast. The neighborhood is central to many places as I enjoyed great food on Filmore Street, morning jogs through parks and a very timely bus (#1) right outside of the apartment. Excellent value.
Beautiful room, great location, and lots of hot water! I enjoyed my stay here and would def come back.
Good place, Good location, I enjoyed staying over there, recommended place for anyone wants place to stay in SF.
My trip to San Francisco was for a conference at a hotel in the Financial District. The location of the apartment is excellent. You feel as though you are living in a great urban neighborhood. My room was large and the entire apartment was kept very clean. I can't mention a single thing that Johnny could do to make my stay more accommodating. Everything was well organized, allowing me to come and go as I wished which was comforting. I would definitely consider staying there again if I had reason to visit San Francisco in the future.
