IMAGINE YOURSELF DOING THE REAL SAN FRANCISCO LIKE "THE LOCALS" DO IT!
We're two gay guys who live, work, and party in the City. We have hectic schedules and often don't even see each other for days at a time. I'll be your host.
I'm looking forward to meeting you. Thanks for the consideration.
This home maintained by Home Book cleaning and linen service.
-35yr old GAY San Francisco resident of 10+ years.
-5+ years in this apartment
-Open-minded, happy go lucky kind of guy.
-I'm a stoner and I drink a pretty good bit. ;-)
-I am prone to impromptu livingroom dance parties
HIGHLIGHTS (aka FREE STUFF):
-FREE Washer and Dryer
-Wake up HERE in a great neighborhood just minutes from everything you want to see and do in San Francisco.
-This posting is for a simple bedroom rental (not a full apartment rental) with access to the kitchen and restroom. The other areas are occupied, by the two people who live here, and are probably not accessible.
I will be sleeping in the living room.
You will take my bedroom and it's all yours.
95% of people love me, the location, and the room.
The other 5%... should have stayed at a hotel. LOL.
It's a great deal per night compared to how much rent we pay and how much hotels in SF cost. Trust me, you're getting a great deal!
-Your bedroom windows face the building's courtyard side where you can hear passing car and foot traffic that fades into white noise.
-Rooftop access for smoking, photography, lounging, sun tanning, etc. There's no deck. It's just a rooftop.
-I have a roommate (who sleeps in his bedroom) and I will be sleeping in the living room. The AirBnB room is usually my bedroom which I will be giving up to you during your stay. I am renting just a room, not the whole apartment which is why it's so CHEAP.
-Working gas stove/oven, pots, pans, storage containers, plates, bowls, and utensils for cooking and eating.
-Large refrigerator/freezer (with ice) and you get half of the space for storing food. Great for cooking quick meals and holding on to leftovers to save money.
-My morning routine only takes about 30 minutes, so, you will not have to compete for bathroom time. Try to limit your time to about 30 minutes per stretch. Somebody inevitably needs to tinkle. Yes, I said 'tinkle'.
-Candles, matches, incense, baby wipes, plush toilet paper for your pooping enjoyment.
-Shower, bathtub, toilet, sink, and a toiletry caddy for you to use while you are here in my place.
-Fresh towels provided.
***You MUST arrange a check in time with me. I work during the day and sometimes at night. I cannot answer my phone when working. I'm usually home by 6pm. ***

Interaction with Guests
I love hosting on AirBnB and have enjoyed the majority of my guests. Independent guests are my favorite [those here for work, to move to the city, or on vacation for sightseeing and SF experiences]. You can lounge in your bedroom as much as you like but SF is awesome and you'll have more fun if you go out and access it. I'll probably be out doing just that.
I'm a Restaurant Server and I work alot (I go in late and sometimes get in late) so independent guests are best. Don't worry, I'll set you up for success.
My roommate is a bartender so he gets in at 2 or 3 in the morning many nights.
I'm best via text since I'm not always around. Independent guests seem to have the best experience. If I am around, I will definitely chat you up and give my perspectives and tips for the city.
"Hands down, this is my favorite neighborhood in the City. It's GRITTY yet CHARMING. I love it!"
"The principal thoroughfare of the Mission District of San Francisco is Mission Street. Its borders are U.S. Route 101 to the east which forms the boundary between the eastern portion of the district, known as 'Inner Mission' and its eastern neighbor,Potrero Hill, while Sanchez Street separates the neighborhoods from Eureka Valley (also known as "The Castro") and Noe Valley to the west."
"One of the central districts of San Francisco, CA. It is the city's Latino district. It is famous for its historic buildings Mission burritos (the best in Northern California), and its murals. Rich people who tour San Francisco for a limited time think that the Mission is the ghetto. That's kind of true, but the disdain some of these people take with them is unfortunate. The Mission district is large and complex, with varying socioeconomic areas, clusters of mini-communities, and several specialty stores found nowhere else. Native San Franciscans know it as one of the 'cool' districts."
STAY HERE AND BE:
-1 block from Muni and Bart.
-1 block to grocery shopping
-2 minutes from Downtown for only $1.75 (each way)
-1 block to popular bars, shops, and the best local eats
-A short walk to Dolores Park (which is a must, especially on Sunday Funday!)
***Everyone uses Googl Maps and Navigation to get around the city.
***Yelp is a great way to find local eats. I can also point you in the right direction.
Other Things to Note
*BRING EARPLUGS and put your alarm on vibrate if you are a light sleeper. PLEASE don't ask me to turn down tv or talk lower. It's my home and sometimes I rock out. I would never stay at someone's house and ask them to keep it down. Ewww, right?
*I may come in to open/close a window, drop off extra towels, etc. while you are gone but no one here will touch your stuff.
*My house is your house. Enjoy yourself and feel comfortable while you are in my place.
*Please don't make yourself a nuisance to me or my neighbors. This has never been a problem up to now. Please, be 'pindrop quiet' in the courtyard and stairwell when coming/going.
*My roommate is 'shy'. Just say 'hi' and keep it moving. lol. As your host, however, I'll be way more personable than him. Direct all questions/concerns to me even if it's via text.
*Be quiet in the building's common areas (i.e. stairwells, courtyard, directly in front of building, roof, etc).
*Smoking cigarettes: ONLY allowed in the outdoor stairwell and on the roof.
*Try to use the buzzer only during daylight hours. It'll wake the dead and my neighbors in the building. Besides, you'll have a key. Call or text me if you need to get in because you've misplaced your key.
I don't yell, fight, or argue... I call SFPD.
This is for your safety and mine.
Jonathan was very friendly and accommodating. He also cleaned the room everyday and put out fresh towels.
Jonathan was a great host. His place was clean and inviting. He provided us with fresh linens and towels and made us feel at home. We had a wonderful time. Thanks!
Jonathan has a nice place with a great location. Valencia St is just two blocks away. Pubs and restaurants are awesome there. Do check it out.
Jonathan was a great host. The place was very comfortable and quiet. The room faces an inner courtyard with lots of sunshine. It was great! The location is perfect for those hunting for unique restaurant and cafe experiences. Check out the Cafe Ethiopia on Valencia street a few blocks away.
I spent 1 week in Jonathan's room, it was clear and it worth the price. He's an awesome host and a real local so if you want to leave San Francisco as a local you should really try his place. The BART was very close so it's very simple to go and come from the airport or the city centre.
Also the host was very helpful on what to visit and when.
Great place, great host. Short review only because i left another, i extended my stay in this place, only this says a lot!
Jonathan saved us! He took us in on less than 12h notice and was a charming host. He welcomed us into his home, in the heart of the mission, with plenty of suggestions on how to properly check out the local scene. He greeted us with clean sheets and clean towels fresh from the dryer. Shower has great water pressure and was nice and hot; just what we needed after our long flight. Great spot to feel like a mission local!
