This light and airy house is located on a quiet and coveted one-way alley street in the middle of the Mission District and Valencia corridor. Huge modern skylight in the center of the house gives natural light throughout. Walking distance to some of the best restaurants, bars and cafes in the city. Dolores Park, Bi-Rite and Clarion Alley (famous murals) are all just two blocks away. Tartine bakery and the beautiful Mission Playground/Pool are within a one block walk. WALK SCORE: 98!!!
This gorgeous, sunny home is located on a quiet alley street right in the heart of the Mission and Valencia corridor. Linda Street is famous because the houses are all nicely painted (mostly pastels with little balconies) and and it is a one way street (so foot traffic and car traffic are minimal). Although the street and bedrooms are quiet, you are within walking distance to some of the best hotspots of the Mission District: Dolores Park (2 blocks), Tartine bakery (1 block), Delfina pizza (1.5 blocks), Bi-Rite Market (a wonderful gourmet market) (2 blocks), Bi-Rite Creamery (2 blocks), Clarion Alley (2 block), Farina Restaurant (.5 blocks), Locanda (2.5 blocks), Mission Cheese (1 block), 826 Valencia (1.5 blocks) and numerous others. Grab a few beach chairs from the garage, head to Bi-Rite for picnic items and then walk another 1/2 block to Dolores Park. Other highlights include the murals (the Mission Mural tour walks right around my neighborhood (website hidden)). Last, transportation couldn't be easier with a BART station just 3.5 blocks away. I am happy to give you many suggestions about places to eat, drink and relax during your stay.
The house is large for the area (1200 square feet) and built in a classic San Francisco style with decorative molding and detail. However, the house was renovated to be contemporary inside with a large central skylight, open floor plan, beautiful artwork and hardwood floors throughout. Professional grade kitchen and accessories.
The house has 2 bedrooms (sleeps 6), a full bathroom with tub and stand up shower, living room (with piano), small balcony and an open kitchen, dinning room (with a table that can extend to seat 10 people), and bar area with an ice machine. Master bedroom has a queen size bed. 2nd bedroom has twin over full size bunk beds and twin size trundle under full. We also have both queen and twin size air mattresses that can be used if requested. The couch is another place someone could sleep if needed.
We have business class internet, Comcast cable, AppleTV and Sonos. We also have laundry available in the garage. Parking spot may be available upon request for an additional $20 per day fee.
If you choose to stay with us we will offer you clean towels for use during your stay and closet and drawer space. You can expect great hospitality and a very welcoming atmosphere from our home! We look forward to having you stay at our house in the most vibrant district of San Francisco.
Interaction with guests
I was born in SF and have lived in the city for over 25 years. If I am in town, I will help with recommendations and anything extra you might need. If I am out of town you can check in on your own and everything will be ready for you on your arrival.
Other things to note
Please note that I am usually renting out this space when I am out of town - that means I will have personal items in the place. Please do not use clothes in the closet, leave drawers alone outside of the kitchen drawers and please don't remove anything from the apartment. However, you are welcomed to use any toiletries that we leave out for you and anything in the kitchen. Let us know if you have any questions!
We expect our guests to treat our home like they would treat a friends home. We ask that you clean up after yourselves and don't disrespect our things. You are not expected to wash your sheets or towels. You are welcome to store food in the refrigerator/freezer and make meals in the kitchen as long as you clean up after yourselves!
* No smoking or drugs.
* No pets.
* Quiet time after 10 pm.
* Only registered guests are allowed in the suite. (If a guest brings more people than were booked, the reservation will be cancelled with no refund.)
* All children are considered guests and must be included in the occupancy count. (And let me know the age of the children as I may have extra amenities for them)
* To prevent damage to bedding and towels, please do not do laundry that belongs to the suite. There should be plenty for you to use as replacements if necessary
* If you break or damage something, please let us know and arrange for its replacement or repair.
One thing to note: A small cat lives in the apartment downstairs and occasionally comes into this home. I have never had anyone complain about dander, but want to make sure renters know. If you enjoy cats, then we can arrange for the cat to spend some time in your apartment...let me know!

I am a lawyer and have lived in SF for over 20 years. I have owned this home for the last 12 years and it has been amazing to see the Mission district change over the last few years. I enjoy bluegrass music and play bass and sing in a band. I also have 2 young daughters that keep me extremely busy.
