The shower has a lovely water pressure and was designed to be reminiscent of the tropics.We remodeled the kitchen so it now has a lounging area and a larger island unit with a handmade counter top.

The space

We live in a large Victorian house on a quiet street, nestled between the Mission district and Noe Valley. We're one block from the streetcar stop and five blocks from the subway. We have three bedrooms, two of which have double beds and windows which cast their light upon the high, warm colored walls and ceilings of this haven. We have lots of spaces in the house where you can relax, read, listen to music and just cozy up. The kitchen is well stocked and we have a bountiful garden and back deck.

Amenities include: Laundry, wireless, sun room, garden, sun deck and a full kitchen. We also have a library (not perfectly organized but filled with great books).

We both are self employed creatives. I own a business involved in art and design and Tania is an arts journalist. We enjoy meeting people and are well versed in the art and design communities of the Bay Area. We also know some really good haunts.
