About this listing
Quintessential Edwardian flat (constructed 1906) with period details, tall ceilings and charm throughout. 3 blocks from Cole Valley, 2 blocks from lively Haight Street, 10 minute cab/uber/lyft ride to downtown. Adjacent to Buena Vista Park.
I have a beautiful 1 level condominium. The 2 front rooms are filled with light throughout the day, particularly in the morning. And although Masonic Avenue is a busy street the space is set back enough to remain tranquil. And from the back bedrooms one should hear no noise.
Guests may access the main bathroom, dining and living rooms and kitchen. They may also use the pantry and washer/dryer if needed.
Interaction with guests
I am typically home and happy to help with recommendations or even make coffee. I run a private dinner party/cooking class business (see so often I have guests over. I will let guests booking with me know in advance if this is the case. Most of my events are over by 9pm or so at the latest. AirBnB guests are welcome to mingle, have a glass of wine, etc and join the party.
I'm 2 blocks up the hill from Haight Street. Buena Vista Park (best views in the city) is just a block away as is charming Cole Valley with its many shops and eateries. The popping Mission District is just over the hill (you can even walk there comfortably in about 25 minutes). Downtown is a 12 minute Lyft ride away.
Parking on my street is not too difficult. The #6 bus (and others) run through here. The N-Judah street car which goes downtown is a few blocks away in Cole Valley.
Other things to note
I try to only make available my room on AirBnB when I'm not hosting dinner events. That said, it can be fun for a guest to interact with dinner guests and meet new people. If an AirBnB guest requests a night I'm already booked for a party I will let him or her know and they can decide whether that works for them.
I expect guests to treat my space as if it was their own home. Very simple. I would do the same in your space.
