About this listing
Bright and cheerful bedroom for one traveler in a beautiful apartment. We are in the heart of the Mission, where we enjoy the sunniest weather in San Francisco. You'll be very close to all the new bars and restaurants, the Valencia street corridor, and a block from 24th street. Mission Chinese Food, Flower and Water, Foreign Cinema, Lolo, Southern Pacific Brewery, Salumeria… They are all within walking distance from our house. Dolores Park is a pleasant 15 minutes stroll away.
Easy access to the 101 and 280 freeways and it’s super convenient to both BART and MUNI, for easy access to SFO, Union Square, the Ferry Building, AT&T Park, anywhere you want to go! Though we don’t provide a parking space and parking is difficult all over town, we can accommodate a rental bike under the deck in our back yard
There’s WiFi, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry available and an almost private bathroom (the bathroom is in the hallway, but you’ll be most likely the only one using it, since we have our own). There’s access to a private deck (with a hammock) and a shared backyard. We don't have roommates. It’s a very quiet building and a great place to relax.
I cook a lot and the kitchen is a bit of my own space where I go to relax in the evening. It's totally fine if you want to make yourself breakfast, but it gets too crowded when guests cook here, so I rather you didn't. Breakfast is not included.
We support water conservation, recycling and sustainability, we hope you value those as well.
Check in is between 3:00 PM and 10:00 PM, sometimes we can be flexible with the hours, but make sure to let us know before hand if you are planning to arrive outside these hours to confirm that we can accommodate you. Please keep in mind that we do not accept reservations from guests with blank profiles and no photos of themselves. The room is for one person, so please don't bring an overnight guest, no exceptions. We speak English, Spanish, some Italian, Portuguese and basic Japanese.
Interaction with Guests
As opposed to a hotel, we don't have a 24 hour concierge, so once we agreed on your arrival time, please give us fair warning if you are changing your plans, I will do the same.
I'll be happy to provide recommendations to restaurants and general information about the city. Please don't bring visitors without asking first. There may be another guest and the place is not that big. ABSOLUTELY NO OVERNIGHT GUESTS.
We are 6 blocks from the 24th and Mission Bart station, connecting with the East Bay, the Peninsula and the airport. Several Muni lines stop within a couple of blocks and we are not too far from the 22nd St Caltrain station.
Other Things to Note
Some days (but not always) our dog may be here. He's a super friendly small 8 pound, 5 year old mutt that doesn't shed and is very quiet. Of course we think he's the cutest, but I guess we are bias. If this is a concern, please ask, I can give you a clear answer on weather he'll be here or not during your stay.
Quiet Hours are 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM on weeknights, 11:00 PM to 10:00 AM on weekends.
No Smoking inside or within 25 feet of the front gate (including the sidewalk in front of the house.), but you can smoke on the deck.
Fresh linens and towels are provided and you can use the washer and dryer (between 8:00 AM and 10:00 PM). You buy your own laundry soap, coffee, groceries, etc.
The room accommodates one person only. No overnight guests, no exceptions.
It was my first time travelling solo and my first air bnb experience. I was nervous but Paula and her cute dog Leo made me feel right at home! Her beautiful place in the mission is a short walk to the 24th street Bart and many muni bus stops. I couldn't have asked for a better location. Paula, thanks for making feel so welcome and hope I'll see you in San Francisco soon again!
Had a fantastic stay in Paula's beautiful home! You can tell she's an experienced host and everything is very efficient, she's thought it all through to make it easy for visitors. Room looks exactly like the photos, bright cosy and impeccably clean, as was the shared bathroom. I loved the decor throughout the apartment, very creative and relaxing. Paula was very responsive in arranging arrival time and was there to show me round - and introduce me to the adorable Leo! He's the cutest :-)
The neighbourhood is vibrant with great local restaurants and full of local character, so nice to stay somewhere other than downtown SF. I felt safe coming back from the BART at around 10pm (although there are the usual groups of homeless people to be found all over the city, certainly much less a problem here than around Union Sq).
Overall a fantastic stay in Paula's beautiful homely home - I will very gladly return next time I'm in town and will recommend to friends and colleagues!
Paula was very hospitable, she made me feel at home considering it was my first experience at airbnb, I couldn't have asked for a better host. I was feeling slightly under the weather on one of the nights and she made hot ginger tea with honey.
The room is every bright just like the picture, comfortable and perfect for one person. The location is convenient to most cafe's and bars in the mission area. Also accesible by public transport. Overall a great stay and first experience.
I had a great time at Paula's house. The room was literally cozy and bright. She also provided beautiful flowers in the room - it was very heartwarming! The location is great. Very close to great cafes and 10 minutes walk to Bart station. Paula was very kind and professional about hosting!
This was a perfect spot to land in the Mission. The street is gorgeous and has plenty of fantastic coffee shops. The room was as described and very sunny!! Paula's home is very cozy with great art lining the hallways. Communication was fantastic and I was able to get the keys very easily. Paula was out of town so her friend Marisa hosted me. She was extremely kind and lives in SF herself. I highly recommend Paula's home on your visit to SF!
Paula was the perfect host during my stay in San Francisco. She was super friendly and sweet and made me feel right at home. I wasn't feeling too well at the beginning of my trip and she even made me a ginger lemon and honey drink to help me feel better! The room itself is cozy and comfortable, perfect for someone who is traveling alone. I would highly recommend anyone to stay with Paula.
My stay at Paula's was wonderful. Her place us located quite close to the bustling, bohemian atmosphere of the Mission District. Paula was an excellent hostess who made me feel comfortable and familiar with her home. The room was great and located in a quiet neighborhood, which was good for me, as I was busy conducting research for a grad school project

About the Host, Paula
Love to travel and try to do it as often as possible. I have lived in different continents and always feel very curious about other cultures. I love to cook all sorts of things. My first language is Spanish, but I am also fluent in English and can communicate in Italian and Portuguese as well. Some Japanese that I'm beginning to forget, just don't use it often enough.
