Our comfortable rental home has everything: A large and modern furnished living room, a spacious kitchen with a dinner table and practical appliances. A new gas stove, a new quiet dishwasher and a range hood is ready for use if you appreciate cooking for yourself. 2 fully furnished bedrooms including 2 king size beds will accommodate 4 guests. Additionally there is space on a mattress for at least 1 more (please inquire within). There is a private garage able to accommodate one car adjacent to the house and one additional spot in the driveway. Our rental is probably most ideal for families or friends. There is a recently remodeled modern bathroom (shower/sink) and a separated water saving toilet. The living area is on second floor and good sized windows allow a great amount of light from both the front and the back of the house. New insulated windows will keep temperature inside mild. Also benefit from a large wooden deck overlooking a quiet backyard accessible from both bedrooms.
In the basement a washer and dryer is ready for use in case you wish to do your laundry during your stay. It is possible to use tools, borrow/rent camping gear or mountain bike on request. Wifi works in the whole house and an office space with printer we have here too.
The area around Avalon is very private and safe. Mc Laren park is practically next door, dog friendly, with a new playground, loved by our visiting families! You may take the bus in any direction downhill and end either in San Bruno or Mission Street, where several small local businesses will provide you with most of what you need. The next larger shop is about 20 blocks away. Freeway access to both 101 or 280 is 5 driving min away. Drive 15 min each way West (Hwy 1 and sunset) or East (Candlestick Park) to get to the local beach. Next Bart is Glen Park and reachable by Muni/bus in a 5 min ride.
The airport is in close proximity and therefore this place is also suitable for business related travels.
The excelsior district is close to the hip Mission district that offers numerous artsy bars, great restaurants in all price ranges, coffee shops and theaters. Also famous is the area for the amazing murals painted by local Artists.
The Mission, a predominantly Latino neighborhood, has some cool retro places to offer. You may eat at a classic American diner or shop for mid-century furniture.

Interaction with guests
As much as you wish. I will be there only to greet you and show you around but in emergencies I of course will be available to you.
It is quiet and residential here and the views over Baypoint are stunning. There is a larger park practically next door, called McLaren Park including a newly built playground. Our neighbors are very nice and keep mostly to themselves.
There are several stores in the area and the bus stops across the street from the house which is really convenient. San Francisco has one of the best public transport system in the country, and a bus stop is right in front of the house. Beware that with the stunning view there come some traditional hills. This one is spectacular and it is most convenient to have a car or take public transport but walking can demand good condition:)

I am 32 years old and live in Oakland. I work as property manager to a property owned by a befriended couple who lives in Switzerland. We just got finished remodeling their house in San Francisco, CA. So now we are ready to rent it out as a vacation home on Airbnb.
In 2001 I absolved Teacher Education in Switzerland, worked in Norway for 5 years and moved to the USA in 2009. I love California and what it offers in both Arts and Nature. Write me a message if you have any questions regarding the property.
Enjoy San Francisco!
