Ironically, the quirkiness of a two door bathroom is also characteristic that makes the apartment workable as an Airbnb venue. The resident host uses the bathroom to pass through to the kitchen. Odd, yes! Problematic, No. There are only two rules, they are simple, but important.

At 98 years of age, the building stands solid as it has seen several generations of people enter it's doors. A recent effort to breath new life into the building does not hide the truth that the building has suffered some neglect. Renovations over the years have resulted in curious and quirky design and use of space. Hardwood floors have been tiled over and finely crafted woodwork has been covered with layers of paint. As a ten year resident of the apartment, I have applied myself to creating a space that is clean, safe, inviting and comfortable, and that provides a few modern conveniences. For the most part, everything works well and looks good. But it is an ongoing effort on my part. San Francisco is a wonderful and fun city to live in and to visit. As your host I want for you to be comfortable and to realize your purpose, be it fun, business, or some-other, for visiting... If something isn't right, Let me know, I'll do what I am able.

Also to consider:
As a bustling neighborhood in an urban environment, concern for safety is prudent. For the most part, the neighborhood is safe, but no-one can make this guarantee. Being aware of your surroundings and staying on primary roadways and in lighted areas at night is always good advice. There is a great deal of vehicle traffic in the Neighborhood and paying attention to traffic lights and using crosswalks is important when walking. Homelessness is very visible in the neighborhood. Some guests have expressed unsettled feelings or concerns about safety arising from the prevalence of homeless people. I acknowledge the legitimacy of peoples feelings. Over the years I have become familiar with many of the homeless in my neighborhood and know some of them by name. This is one way I can work to make the neighborhood be safer. In my experience, the homeless are more likely to be victims of crime than the perpetrators of crime. I have been known to offer spare change, provide a meal, or to hire someone for small job. As a practical approach to safety, I do not, however, initiate confrontations. All I can do is treat everyone I meet with integrity and respect, and to try to leave places I go a little better than how I found them.
