Private single room in a quiet 3BR, top-floor apartment in the heart of San Francisco's gay Castro district, located near Market & Noe. Sweeping views all around, and gets lots of sunlight. Peaceful Mediterranean-style oasis in the urban jungle!
My apartment home is on the second floor, and has three bedrooms and one bathroom. It is always sunny--except when it's not. The living room has a projector to watch movies. In addition to a table, chairs, and sofa, the dining room (which doubles as a sewing atelier) has two sit-in window benches for reading, chatting, or relaxing in the sun while taking in spectacular views of The Castro and Twin Peaks--great for watching the fog roll in over the hills around 4PM.
Your single room is private, calm, and peaceful. The twin bed is very comfortable, and perfect for a solo traveler. It has original hardwood floors from 1917, when the building was built. The bathroom is shared, and has a big tub/shower.
Guests should feel like they are at home while when they are here.
There is laundry on the property (2 full size washers & dryers) that guests may use. The laundry room is shared with the other residents of the building. If you do not have your own laundry supplies, it's $5 per wash/dry.
You are welcome to use the kitchen; please be sure to clean up after yourself.
There are three gyms nearby: Fitness SF and Alex are at the end of the street, and 24-Hour Fitness is two blocks away.
Roof access is forbidden, and is cause for early termination of stay, without refund!
Interaction with guests
I am happy to show people around, to give advice, make recommendations, and help to make your experience wonderful.
I am a natural extrovert (ENFJ), so I thrive on interactions with other people.
I understand and respect others' (and my own) needs/limitations/boundaries for space and alone time. It is important to all of us to have balance in our lives.
Other things to note
One or two pets may be considered. There is a $25 pet fee per night, per animal.
Parking may be available, depending on car dimensions and availability. You must ask about parking, as it may already be reserved by someone else.
Please ask if you have questions about anything not mentioned above.

I expect guests to be considerate, quiet, respectful, kind, and thoughtful.
Sharing a bathroom comes with its challenges, so I developed a system to ensure that we can all get along and share the space.
