We aim to make your stay a memorable one with comfortable beds, a spacious ocean-view home, and many amenities. Easy parking too!
Our two-bedroom home was built in 1936, and has hardwood floors, crown molding, formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen, and romantic wood burning fireplace. It is quite large: 1500 square feet. In the center of the house there is a glass-ceiling atrium, filled with palms, anthuriums, orchids, and other tropical plants. There are spacious views of the Pacific Ocean and Marin Headlands from each bedroom, with gorgeous sunset views (when it isn't foggy, of course!). We love bed and breakfasts, and have included some of the amenities found there, including thick fluffy towels, high quality soaps and shampoo, a 52-inch plasma TV (for Netflix, HuluPlus and DVDs only--no regular television), and free coffee and teas. In the event you arrive late and can't shop, we provide milk and cereal to get you going in the morning.
Our comfy queen-size beds have thick mattress pads and comforters, and 500-count cotton sheets. Although ours is officially the safest neighborhood in San Francisco, we provide a small safe which you may use to store your (small) computer and other valuables. There is an inflatable bed which we will provide for a fee, in case you wish to stash a child or two on the living room floor to sleep.
Our home is furnished in a comfortable, eclectic style, with items collected over the years from travel, auctions, and gifts from friends and families. If you happen to be a PG Wodehouse fan, you are in luck; we have a great collection of his books, as well as many other authors you may enjoy.
Every neighborhood in San Francisco has something to recommend it. We love our neighborhood, the Inner Sunset, for its great shops and restaurants, quiet wide streets, and lovely parks. Garrison Keillor, host of 'A Prairie Home Companion' on NPR, recently listed the Inner Sunset as one of the four top places to visit in San Francisco, along with Golden Gate Park (4 1/2 blocks from our home), Muir Woods and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Our area is safe and quiet, with low housing density and easy parking. There is good access to other neighborhoods via the N Judah trolley line, 2½ blocks from our house. We are about 12 blocks from the renowned UCSF Medical Center, for those who will be visiting family there.
This part of the City has many large parks nearby, which offer beautiful, secluded walks, large trees, many great music events, museums, and much more. After a long day of work--or sightseeing-- it's great to walk on the beach (ten minute drive from house), then go to one of the numerous inexpensive restaurants within a short walk or drive of our home. On one of those cold, foggy nights, just hunker down at home, light the fireplace or watch a movie and order takeout.
We want you to have a great stay in the city we are proud to call home. We live in a separate downstairs unit, and are always willing to help with maps, suggestions on places to eat, and things to do. Bon voyage!
