About this listing
We welcome you to our home where you will have your own private bedroom and full bathroom along with private entrance/exit and your own deck. Our location is perfect for travelers wanting a safe quiet private space near BART with easy parking.
Located a stones-throw from Glen Park BART station and several other convenient transportation options, this beautiful garden-level studio is the perfect retreat for those who want a home-base to explore the city (and beyond) and appreciate coming back to a lovely and relaxing environment.
The private bedroom and attached full bath are on the lower level of a single family house, with separate access through the garage. Step outside the french doors to your own patio facing the colorful garden. It's a great spot to read or just relax with a beverage.
The studio includes a deluxe queen bed, wifi, cable tv, large closet, dresser, a pod coffee maker with an assortment of coffee and tea pods, microwave, mini-fridge/freezer, dishes, silverware, and glasses. Note there is **no kitchen access**. The full bath features an ample tub. The room can accommodate two adults and one infant or child 5 years or younger.
Note that although we have a cat living with us upstairs, in order to accommodate guests with allergies, he has never been allowed in the guest room.
You may use our washing machine and dryer located in the garage and we have an iron to borrow if you need one.
***Ours is a friendly and inclusive home. We do not discriminate based on nationality, race, age, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs. All are welcome and appreciated!***
The entire ground floor suite/studio is yours while you're here, including the attached patio. Guests do not have access to the upstairs living space.
Interaction with Guests
We're a young couple living in the main part of the house with our friendly toddler. We love meeting our guests and being helpful in any way we can while being respectful of your space and privacy. I generally will greet and orient you when you arrive and then leave you to enjoy your visit. I'm always available via text/phone if you need anything at all.
**Please note** that before accepting reservation requests, we require that all potential guests complete their Airbnb profile, including a photo and at least *three* forms of verification (e.g., phone, email, off-line ID or social media acct link).
Glen Park is a sunny, friendly, and safe little neighborhood with several good restaurants, a healthy foods grocery store, fun decor shops and a great independent book store. It's part of the City, yet it feels like a little village. It has a calm and friendly vibe and all the convenient transportation options make this a perfect home-base.
Just a few blocks away is GLEN CANYON PARK. Unlike any other park in the City, it is situated in a rustic canyon, with 70 acres of bucolic, walking trails along Islais Creek, or more challenging hikes up to the top of the Canyon. Folks come from all over the City for the birding, nature walks, and even rock-climbing.
The neighborhood is a transportation hub, with convenient options to take you all over SF and beyond. BART and Muni rail stops are minutes (flat) walking distance from the studio and hwy 280 (access to Silicon Valley and the rest of the SF Bay Area) is 1/4 mi away. If you have a car, street parking is relatively easy and free (no meters on residential streets, just read restricted signs).
Other Things to Note
As we have a toddler, our household usually starts at 8a. We do our best to make as little noise as possible in the mornings, but our kitchen is right above the guest suite so guests who are light sleepers and like to sleep in (without earplugs) might want to consider this.
***Note that the space can only accommodate two adults and up to one child***
You will be welcome to come and go as you please through the garage entrance which has a numeric door opener. The code will be provided to you prior to your arrival.
Check in is 4p or later and check out is 12 noon. If you're coming early or leaving late, we can usually hold your luggage for a few hours - please ask ahead of time.
Guests do not have access to the upstairs living space. If you need anything at all, please contact us by phone/text/front door.
Shoes off while in the suite, please. If your toes tend to get cold, you may want to bring slippers with you.
There is no smoking or burning of any substance allowed on the property.
We have a very sensitive septic system – so please don't flush anything other than what comes out of your body and toilet paper – e.g., no wipes (even if they say “flush-able”) or feminine hygiene products. It's very messy for us to unclog the system. An alarm will go off if the pump becomes clogged. Please let us know right away if this happens.
Please do not put any food waste in the bathroom sink, tub, or toilet. If you'd like me to wash your dishes, you can leave them outside your door.
Our cat Silas may greet you on the back porch. He's very friendly and you can feel free to play with him outside, but please do not let him inside the guest suite. Although we love them, we cannot accommodate guest pets.
Please be conscientious about water and energy use and turn off the lights and the space heater when not in use.
Please run the fan while taking a shower, it helps get the moisture out of the air. If you take a bath, please don't flush the toilet as the tub is draining, it will cause the toilet to overflow!
No parties or additional guests allowed without prior consent.
Great little room with a nice backyard. Only a few blocks from Bart and good street parking. I'd stay again!
Kate and her family was a wonderful host. The check-in instructions were accurate. We had a car and there was no problem in finding an on-street parking place. The room and the attached guest bath was very clean. There were snacks, water and coffee for us to enjoy in the room. Kate also provided organic snacks for my son - it was a sweet gesture. Their little girl, baby Ona came down to meet my 1 year old and the kids even played for sometime. Kate was very responsive to my messages and emails. We had a comfortable 3 night stay in SF, and would highly recommend Kate's studio to other guests.
Kate was friendly and helpful. The studio was cute and comfortable and has a tranquil backyard.
Wij hebben 4 nachten verbleven in deze studio. In de straat zelf kun je niet parkeren in verband met een vergunning die je hiervoor nodig hebt. Enkele straten verderop (10 min lopen) was vrij parkeren wel mogelijk. De straat zelf is vrij rustig en wij hebben geen omgevingsgeluiden gehoord. Je hebt een eigen toegang via de garage. Van daaruit kom je in een klein halletje met kapstok, koelkastje, magnetron en koffieapparaat. Daarna kom je de kamer in die compact is ingedeeld. Links tref je een ruime badkamer met bad / douche, wc en wastafel. De kamer zelf is niet heel ruim maar voor ons prima. Het ideale vonden wij het balkon en toegang tot de tuin waar wij 's ochtends heerlijk in de zon hebben ontbeten. Het bed was heerlijk zacht en voorzien van voldoende (warme) beddengoed. De foto's komen helemaal overeen met de werkelijkheid. De studio maakt onderdeel uit van een woonhuis waarbij de eigenaar boven woont. Je hoort de geluiden van boven. Het heeft ons niet gestoord maar je hoort mensen lopen en praten. Bij aankomst was er een informatiemap met handige tips van de directe omgeving maar ook over de bezienswaardigheden van San Francisco. Wij hebben hier dankbaar gebruik van gemaakt. Ook staan hier de huisregels in vermeld.
De lokatie is ideaal geleden ten op zichte van het BART metrostation waarmee je het centrum inkomt. Wij hebben de auto verder ook laten staan omdat parkeren over wel kan maar vrij prijzig is.
We had a nice stay at the studio. The studio was clean and cosy with a nice backyard. The neighbourhood was quiet and nice. We had easy access to the city with BART from Glen Park Station. The station was close to the studio. We did not meet our hosts, but they were helpful and quick to respond on answers. Their housetitter were friendly and helpful. If/When we are coming back to San Franscico we will love to stay here again!
We stayed two nights at Kate's studio and it was a super nice experience. Kate was available all the time and it was a pleasure to met her and her beautiful family. The studio is exactly as described and they also have a peaceful garden where we enjoyed the San fracisco' sun . Highly recommended
My boyfriend & I absolutely loved this place! It felt like home from the moment we walked in. The room was very clean & the garden was beautiful. Kate was very sweet & gave us great advice on places to visit, what restaurants to go to, and the best routes to take. We hope to stay here again in the future!
Thank you for everything, Kate!
