The space

our lovely mid-century/modern vibe room is sunlit & has its own private bathroom with recently remodeled shower. you can listen to vinyl & chill out in our backyard or jump on the public transit & be anywhere you'd like in the city! if this is your first airbnb experience we are super happy to be hosting you - please make sure to read on for the specifics staying in our airbnb (& if you are an old hat, read on for all the info!)

hi! we'd love for you to stay in our private, light-filled separate bedroom with your very own bathroom/shower steps inside our butchertown home. there is a full kitchen in the front part of the home right outside of your bedroom that you are free to use if you wish. in your bedroom there is a mid-century vintage/modern vibe with a microwave, mini-fridge & tea & coffee set up, silverware, mugs, etc for you to use. there is a super comfortable queen sized bed, with a low profile, japanese style bed frame. original, charming, paint splattered hardwood flooring is intact & a great accent. there is a sitting area with a record player & lots of eclectic vinyl at the ready (with vintage speakers rescued from the castro theatre!) &, we have tennis racquets, skateboards, & two older vintage bikes available for a small rental fee to enhance your san francisco stay at our butchertown home ($10 each). we have a park directly across the street, youngblood-coleman, with basketball courts, a playground, new tennis courts, the best concrete luge slide in all of san francisco (!) & soccer fields. there is a rebuilt world class skatepark up the hill as well at hilltop park. a 10 minute walk away is heron's head park - a beautiful respite & bird sanctuary & recovering estuary.

in our awesome, plant filled, & chiminea ready backyard, which is accessed through the back part of the home, you are also free to chill out in the sun & have a peek at the golden gate bridge from our deck space. you can also pet our chickens if you are curious! the backyard is definitely a favorite spot in our home. we have a front garden patio area which is right under your rooms windows & a lovely place to sit & have your tea or coffee in the mornings or your wine in the evenings!

about the neighborhood: we are in butchertown, aka outer dogpatch, part of the bayview & a working class, transitional neighborhood. this is not a come-to destination but a real san francisco hood. dogpatch is our closest neighborhood to hang out in & it is a just a few minutes up the road via car or about 10 minutes via the public transit train. this T line rail is a block & 1/2 from our house & it will connect you to all of SF. it also connects directly to the SF giants ball park & is minutes away if you are in town for a game! the muni, bart & cable lines are all able to be connected via this train. we have eclectic food & places blocks away in our hood: flora grubb with ritual coffee, radio afrika kitchen, limon, auntie april's chicken & waffles, trouble coffee clubhouse, all good pizza, speakeasy brewery & tasting room & more. right up the road in dogpatch there are awesome bars, artisan ice cream shops, & fabulous restaurants (piccino, chocolate lab, dogpatch saloon, serpentine, mr & mrs miscellaneous, la fromagerie...) we would love to point you in the right direction & give you some tips to make your stay great! you can see on our map where these different places are here in the guidebook section of the listing.

some things to know:
we have a sweet, 40 lb senior black lab mix dog named dixie & 2 cats, none of which are allowed in your bedroom. the bedroom is on a street with a bus line, so there is street noise. there is free street parking & you can usually find a spot right on our block if you are driving or renting a car for your stay - a definite perk in the city! if you are in need of a taxi to or from the airport we can most likely zip you down there for less than a standard taxi would be. just give us a shout to co-ordinate.

what we provide:
clean sheets & towels, coffee, tea, dishware & a refrigerator & a microwave. you'll need to bring your own toiletry amenites as we assume most people like to use their own items however, there is normally extra in the cabinet . there is a hair dryer & an iron in the cabinet should you need it.

we have hosted many people & sublet our place numerous times. if you would prefer to have a reference, just ask, we'd be happy to send them along!

there is a washer/dryer available if you are staying longer than a week. backyard with grill & deck to hang out in.

we are normally always present & available to our guests. we take cues from our guests & adjust accordingly on how social they would like to be.

our neighborhood is absolutely one of the sunniest which we love. it is also a little bit grittier; it's in a bit of flux right now & we love the diversity that affords. this is a working class neighborhood with real san franciscans & we would love to show you that!

easy street parking normally within the block & the public transit, the T line, is a block & a 1/2 away.

Guest access

full kitchen if needed, backyard with grill & deck to hang out in if asked for!

we are normally always present & available to our guests. we take cues from our guests & adjust accordingly on how social they would like to be.

We stayed at Bob & Jen's for a full week. The room is just as shown in the pictures - it's bosy super cosy and stylish. You've got all what you need just right there: a nice shower, good music, a comfy bed, tiny fridge etc. We really felt at home and enjoyed those great conversations, morning coffees and pizza night in the backyard. The place itself is artistic/eccentric, you either love it or you won't. We definitely enjoyed it a lot and appreciated all the great tipps for places to visit. Locationwise it's slightly off, pretty easy to get into town by car/shared ride/tram though. So if you're looking for a bohemian and original place to stay, we warmly recommend Jenifer and Bob's place.

Jenifer and Bob were awesome hosts! Even though we didn't get to hang out with them much (we were getting lost and exploring the city most days), they were super responsive, flexible, and accommodating. Definitely recommend their cute little room.

Jen and Bob were wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful home which was well equipped and within easy reach of San Francisco's most interesting spots. Bob and Jen were both on hand to have a chat and give lots of tips about the city. We would happily stay with them again. Thanks again Jen and Bob!

Great place for my first time ever in San Francisco! It was conveniently next to the T. Loved coming back to the place and listening to some records. Will come back when I visit SF again!

Jenifer and Bob's place was great for us. Close to Dogpatch and next to public transport and a park, it was perfect for us to explore SF. The interior was cool and Jenifer and Bob were really helpful on where to go locally. Thanks heaps, we really enjoyed our stay.

Jenifer and Bob were really friendly and made me feel welcome. I was traveling by myself and was a little worried about venturing out by myself but Bob helped by giving me great directions and options of places to explore. The room was super cozy and it was nice to have the attached bathroom. They were not home when I arrived but made sure to send me directions on how to use the lock box and there were written directions for wifi as well as all of the policies. If I come back to San Francisco I would definitely stay with them.
