Sunny room in the top floor of a Mission Dolores Victorian railroad flat. Convenient to public transit and super close to tons of great restaurants, bars and more. My place now has a pinball machine too that you can play during your stay :)

The space

My place has a sunny room in my top floor flat in Mission Dolores convenient to BART, Muni and many restaurants, bars and Dolores Park. Great central location whether you are here to play or work or both! Lots of light and hardwood floors.

I have my second room that i never use that I'm willing to rent out. I'm located in the Mission District but close to the Lower Haight and Hayes Valley so very easy to walk or bike anywhere. Great location with close access to lots of public transit too. Includes free WiFi.

I'm around often, but sometimes travel so you may have the place to yourself, but I'm also happy to give you tips on what to do etc since our neighborhood packed with great stuff. Now I've got my first pinball machine too that you can play - The Shadow!

I'm close to BART (16th St. & Mission) and Muni stops and Dolores Park is a 10-15 minute walk away.

I'm on the top floor in a sunny flat and we have a shared backyard you can use to chill in as well. Kitchen is free to use but since I rarely cook, I don't have a super extensive assortment of cookware, etc. But I suggest eating out because there is too much amazing food nearby!

Oh yeah, I bike everywhere and potentially can rent out a bike if I'm not using one but there are bike rental places nearby too and I'd recommend biking as a great way to get around.

BART is close so it's easy to get here from SFO or OAK. Also, many MUNI lines are close by including Church Station and 16th Street/Mission.

Gene was a great host; both helpful and a nice person to hang out with. I booked last minute and had a lot of problems delayed flights and bagage, but Gene was very helpful throughout my stay. The apartment was clean, comfortable and in a good, happening location in SF. I would recommend anyone to stay with Gene and have him as a guest in my house in the future.

Fabulous stay! Gene is ever the kind and flexible host. The futon is super comfortable (as was the air mattress before that). The location is totally central and also quiet and comfortable. I was delighted to return.

Three cheers for Gene's place! Gene very pleasantly accommodated for a quick stay. The building is spiffier than ever, and Gene's apartment has more amenities.
