A HISTORIC RESIDENCE
Amid an abundance of restaurants, cafés, bars and markets, you'll be able to have a comfortable home! This is the 3rd floor of a building constructed shortly after the San Francisco earthquake and fires of 1906.
The front room has a queen bed with a beautiful red bedframe.
The second room has queen bed with a gold and grey antique bedframe.
The third room is petite and has a full bed.
The fourth room has a couch that can be converted to a queen bed.
At the end of the hall is a sun-filled kitchen and dining area. The kitchen has a gas range and oven, fridge, and various kitchen tools to make home-cooked meals. (Whether you check out the abundance of produce markets around the corner in Chinatown, gather cheeses and meats from Molinari Delicatessen on Columbus, grab some organic produce on Grant Ave a few blocks away, or choose to walk to Trader Joe's or Safeway - you are surrounded by delicious ingredients!) The bright dining area is a wonderful place to enjoy some coffee and breakfast before heading out for the day. Or feel free to just use the dining table as a desk/work space, and take advantage of the litany of restaurants, cafes and bars in all directions!!
As mentioned above, this building is from the early 1900's and has some unique features that have been added over the last 100 years. Walk through the kitchen to a small room with windows to the ceiling. This converted porch was probably once used for drying clothes and now has a bathroom sink. Through another door is the bathroom with a toilet and shower/bath. This may not be your usual bathroom experience, but you are visiting San Francisco after all and will get a glimpse of the historic nature of SF homes.
The bathroom includes a make-up mirror, blow dryer with a diffuser, cotton balls, q-tips, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, ear plugs and a few feminine products in case of emergency.
There isn't a clothes washer and dryer, but there's a laundromat a half block away.

PARKING - SO MANY OPTIONS!
There is street parking in the neighborhood. Most of it has a 2 hour limit between 8am Monday - 9pm Saturday. So, you can park in a spot from 7pm in the evening to 10am in the morning before you have to move every 2 hours. Since the time limit doesn't apply on Sunday, you can leave it from 7pm Saturday night to 10am Monday morning. Sometimes I can find a parking spot within a couple of blocks and other times I find a street parking space several blocks away, but I eventually find a spot.
There are also parking meters in the streets immediately around the house. They are enforced Monday to Saturday 9am to 6pm. So you can park for free from 6pm to 9am and all day on Sunday. After that, it's $2 per hour which you can pay from your smartphone with an app.
If you park on the street, please read all street signs regarding street cleaning and such in order to avoid your car being towed.
There is a parking lot right in front of the house. They charge $15 for 12 hours, so that's $30 per day. So you can park there during the day and park on the street at night if you want to save $15.
You can also park in a number of nearby parking garages. The North Beach Garage on Vallejo charges about $3 per hour. They charge $30 for 9-24 hours. However if you enter before 10am and exit before 7pm, it's only $16. (They call this their Early Bird Special.) So you could switch off between the garage during the day and street at night and save $14 if you wanted to. This garage is open 24 hours.
The Vallejo Street Garage is $27 daily maximum and $16 Early Bird Special. This garage closes at 10pm Sunday-Thursday and 2am Friday and Saturday.
The Powell Street Parking garage is usually $12 for a weekday from morning to about 6pm. The price goes up in evenings and weekends, however as stated earlier you can park for free in the evenings on the street. They close between 10pm and 2am depending on the day. So you could switch off between the garage during the day and street at night and save money if you wanted to.

I'm an extrovert who is happy to create a welcoming, loving space AND I am also able to honor others' privacy and need for alone time.
I enjoy hearing about your exploring adventures, what you do for work or what you did at the conference, etc. I love giving recommendations and discussing options for what you could do. However, I also am happy to give you space and privacy. In which case, I'll simply ask if there's anything you need and how you're doing. I do my best to gauge my guest's desired level of interaction but I also welcome direct communication. As in, feel free to tell me you would like more privacy/space or more interaction.
I love people... truly I adore meeting people, hearing about their lives, and making a difference for others. Taking care of people is deeply fulfilling to me. It is an honor to have the opportunity to be hospitable - whether that is three generations of a family or a group of friends or a team of colleagues.
I live in San Francisco and co-own a 3 unit apartment building with another woman, Tiya-B. My home is the 3rd floor unit and her place is the 2nd floor unit. In addition, I sometimes help another dear friend, Alan, who shares his home with guests on occasion (the Mission Treehouse).
I have lived in San Francisco since the winter of 2012 and I still feel like there's so much to see! I'm constantly exploring the city in which I live. San Francisco is a magical, ever-evolving and vibrant place. I am always learning about something new and discovering special qualities. There is so much happening in San Francisco, one can be a "tourist" in this city and never get bored. There isn't enough time in the day to attend all the events and try all the restaurants, etc. I'm delighted to share with you what I know about and really appreciate when people tell me about their discoveries.
