The space

We live in an 1895 Victorian top flat with 12 foot ceilings on the best block in San Francisco. Our calendar is always up to date.

Location Location Location~ Our home is close to the Mission, Lower Haight, and 2.5 blocks from the Castro theater. The underground is 3 blocks away, with a street car even closer. The room is small and cosy, but a great price for one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the US!

Please fill out your profile if you are interested~and make sure to arrange a time to meet prior to your arrival, I lead a busy lifestyle, work full time, and wouldn't want to miss anyone! Check in is at 5 and we are 37 steps up from street level. Please go light on perfume and cologne - we are allergic.

Restaurants are plentiful and beautiful Dolores Park is quite close. Your room has a twin day bed 75 inches long with a desk and a solid door. The room is 9.25 feet by 8 feet. Amenities include wireless and a gorgeous full kitchen. We have one cat that enjoys company almost as much as we do and a sweet rescue pooch. Our flat gets more light than any other home I've been to in my 13 years of living in this great town.

For all you foodies out there BiRite Creamery, Tartine, Delfina's Pizza and Proper are within 4.5 blocks of our front door. Michelin rated Range is just a few farther.

As much as we love bikes, and we do, we don't have space for storage. If you rent one please return it at the end of the day or lock up on the street at your own risk. Please ask if you would like to have a friend for a short visit.

Beautiful flat located between Castro and Mission area. Full of lovely art. Brenda and her flatmate Matt are very welcoming and it's a great great location. Room and bed is small, but perfectly comfortable for a single person.

Brenda was the most gorgeous host - friendly, warm, welcoming and helpful. For example she lent me an umbrella for a rainy day and even left me an NYC metro pass she had so I had a card to start with when I arrived there! The photos very accurately describe Brenda's space and Castro is a great location within walking distance from downtown SF. I enjoyed the yoga nearby and there is also a whole foods and Safeway easily accessible, as well as the nightlife in Mission and Haight. If you stay with Brenda there is a great restaurant called Frances just around the corner... Brenda's place is a wonderful landing spot for San Francisco and she is a warm and lovely host, highly recommend staying with her and would do so again myself.
