I have a spare bedroom in my house (double bed) with it's own half bath (shower only). The room is cozy and private with access to the living room, kitchen and front porch.

The space

This listing is available for 3-7 days/nights at a time.

My casual, cozy house—just one block away from the Pacific Ocean—has a spare room with a private bath/shower. There is access to the kitchen and a sunny front porch/garden for your morning coffee (free wifi service also.) From the front porch you can watch the neighborhood go by — surfers and families walking by on their way to the beach. You'll have easy access to walks on the trails in Golden Gate Park or on Ocean Beach, plus all that the city has to offer also nearby. Ample street parking is available.

You'll be one block away from the N-Judah streetcar line, three blocks away from the windmills and trails of Golden Gate Park, and one block away from Trouble Coffee, Java Beach Cafe, Beachside Cafe, Outerlands Restaurant, The General Store, Thanh Long Vietnamese Restaurant, and Other Avenues Food Coop. Also nearby are Mollusk Surf Shop, Cajun Pacific Restaurant, the charming Last Straw Jewelry, the Beach Chalet, and The Cliff House ... all walkable. More shops, restaurants, UCSF Parnassus Hospital campus, the De Young Museum, the Academy of Sciences, the Conservatory of Flowers and much more are just a streetcar or bus ride away. Downtown San Francisco is about 30 minutes away.


Along with fresh sheets and towels, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel (and a cozy room), we're happy to have coffee brewed for you in the morning. We can leave space for you in the refrigerator, too, so you can keep some of your own food there. We don't have laundry facilities but there is a laundromat just a few steps away around the corner. We love meeting new people, especially travelers, and look forward to sharing our home with you. And we're happy to provide you with any guidance you need in visiting San Francisco and the Bay Area.

We are both in and out of the house quite a bit (mostly out during work hours Monday-Friday). We're always accessible by text or cell phone for questions you might have. And we will, of course, be home each evening.

I love that the ocean and the dunes are 1.5 blocks away. And that there are people out walking, going for coffee, heading to the dunes to see the sunset, sitting on their porches. It's a very friendly neighborhood.

The N-Judah streetcar is one block from the house and takes you straight downtown in about 30 minutes. If you have a car, there is street parking out here also (just be sure to read the signs before parking).

NOTE: If you're interested in visiting Alcatraz, we recommend that you make your reservation online a month in advance. The tickets sell out fast and are not available the same day.

This is a quiet, beautiful and warm house, full of the owner's thoughts. The house is in a very good position, close to the Ocean Beach, so has a wonderful sunset landscape. Martha is very nice, given us a lot of help, let us have a perfect experiences. Martha, we are looking forward you to visit to China.

I love Martha's place in the Outer Sunset. Her cottage is a true getaway, filled with art, books, color and warmth. She is welcoming and her communications about her home are simple. We walked barefoot to the dunes and beach, the N Judah MUNI line runs just a block away and it's beside beautiful Golden Gate Park that's filled with so many gems of San Francisco. It's an escape from the city that's just a quick train ride away. The bed is firm, the coffee dark and strong, and we truly enjoyed our conversations with Martha as much as we enjoyed the neighborhood and her home.

Check in/out was excellent as was communication. Martha checked with us in advance our arrival time and was very accommodating when this changed. Location is right by the ocean, zoo and lots of lovely food places. It's about a 50min public transport journey into downtown but the transport is very easy to get to. A bike hire store (swell) right down the road which gives great access to the golden gate bridge as well as park which are also close. The room is spacious, with a good sized bathroom/shower. The bed was a little squeaky and a little harder than some others we've stayed in (I prefer hard beds personally). Martha insured everything was available to us including space in the fridge if it was required. Would recommend.

I work downtown and live out at the beach. I've got a grown daughter who lives in Wyoming. I'm busy much of the time with various activities and really appreciate coming home to my peaceful house/refuge. I love meeting new people, sharing meals with friends, and doing all the things that are available to me here in San Francisco. I'm a graphic artist by day, love to read, learn about all kinds of things, and travel (or hear about other peoples' travels!). I'm anxious to hear more about my guests' lives and to make them feel comfortable here in San Francisco. My AirBnb experiences have been great so far and have introduced me to so many wonderful new friends.
