Fun flat with a light urban feel, plant-filled atrium, and mid-century modern furniture. Master bedroom and private office look over garden. 2nd bedroom available. On quiet street, yet close to bars, restaurants, retail, parks, and transit.
We blend a few styles, keep the space open with neutral tones, and add some fun pieces along the way. We have a big comfy couch, mid-century modern dining table, 1930's Wedgewood stove, and bar stand from the Philippines. Is that a bust of Mao above the fireplace? Of course it is.
We have the upper flat in a two-unit building. Our flat, including the second bedroom in the office, is all yours. You are also welcome to spend time in the garden. The woman in the unit below is lovely. We keep our personal items in the closets, and office, and ask that you respect privacy in those spaces.
We will be available to answer any questions you may have. Just send a message. We'll reply quickly.
We are pretty casual about our house rules.
For most of your material needs, we have a "grab what you need" policy. So, please help yourself to anything in the refrigerator. Feel free to clip fresh mint and rosemary or pick juicy yellow Meyer lemons from the garden. There is always some alcohol around. You may go for that, too. Just don't go too crazy. If you finish something, please replace it. There are extra towels, pillows, and linens in the closet nearest the office. Again, grab what you need. The only exceptions are the closets in the bedroom and office. We leave personal items there, and ask you to respect privacy.
Also, noise is a funny thing in the city, and while our space is private and quiet, when inside you will be in close proximity to others. And for all day time hours, any and all moderate commotion is completely welcome. In the evening, especially in the bedrooms, we ask you to be respectful of the nearby others, including the downstairs neighbors, who are under foot and can hear any loud conversations.
Check-in and check-out are straightforward. We'll either greet you at the door when you arrive, or leave instructions for the lock box. Either way, you'll be given keys to the house, a bottle of wine, and some coffee. And when you're ready to go, all we ask is that you leave the keys on the kitchen counter, or in the lock box.
We bounce between San Francisco and Sonoma, play with pretty plants, and read everything from Sunset to The Economist as well as anything about medicine, which we each work in.
Our home in San Francisco is on a cute, quiet street nestled between popular boulevards in The Mission. In Sonoma, we're where the river meets the coast -- atop the hill in Jenner.
In both places, we keep our surfaces clear and lines clean. We feel lucky living between these two homes.
