Registered Short- Term Rental:STR-(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). This home is on a hill next to John McLaren Park in a quiet family neighborhood. A skylight brightens this first floor spacious one bedroom suite. Street parking is relatively easy and public transportation is one block away. It is a great place for families to stay since there is the park and playground a short walk away. Convenient for guests who do not want to climb stairs with luggage etc.
The space is approx 450 sq ft and has a queen size bed and a sleeper couch. There is a kitchenette which includes sink, microwave, small refrigerator, 2 electric burners, slow cooker and all the necessary equipment to make cooking/eating an option. There is a table and 4 chairs to enjoy your own cooking or to eat your "take out" or delivered food.
The suite is self contained but I welcome any interaction with guests. Access to the garden is available thru the second floor which is the home's main kitchen/living space.
I am a host that lives at the site so that I am available and enjoy meeting guests and sharing my knowledge of San Francisco. But since the suite is self contained I may only see guests when they arrive and give them a short orientatation to the space.
I have always been able to "share" space well and now as a retired nurse I have the desire to be a host. I plan on providing a clean, safe, positive place to enjoy and explore San Francisco and the bay area. I use public transportation for most of my travels in and around SF but also live where street parking is usually available. I love living in the "city" yet having a park with great views, good hiking trails to get the blood pumping and a place to feel part of nature right outside my doorstep.
I believe that being a good host or a good guest requires you to follow the rule of "treating others like you wish to be treated". A simple way and it works for me!
