Description from owner

Description

The Guest Suite, located in the geographical heart of the city, is in a convenient area for traveling to all parts of San Francisco. Served by 5 bus lines within ½ to 5 blocks away, our guests can be downtown in 10 minutes, but there’s so much more to San Francisco than its Civic Center. We are 5 minutes by bus to the Castro District, Haight Ashbury, and Golden Gate Park, in NOPA, the North Panhandle neighborhood that has become a destination in itself. People may call it “trendy”, but you can call it home.

The Guest Suite affords one the opportunity to live in a middle class American neighborhood with conveniences such as 3 supermarkets, multiple corner grocery stores, 7 coffee shops, and restaurants too numerous to mention. Within several blocks you can find Seafood, Italian, Japanese, Thai, Northern Indian, Vegetarian, Mexican, New Mexican, New Orleans, Korean, Chinese and French cuisines. We have a raw bar, 2 wine bars, and a brew pub. There is a laundromat on the corner that provides a wash and fold service, and also a dry cleaner close by.

The Guest Suite was designed for family with comfort in mind. We offer a heavy cotton towels, and a Hot Water On Demand system that assures our guests of a hot shower anytime. The comfortable queen sized bed is fitted with 600 thread count sheets; down pillows and extra blankets are available upon request. The bedroom dresser is completely empty for your exclusive use, and the closet, with cedar flooring, is also empty except for an abundance of hangers and extra pillows. We offer a separate bedroom, not just a designated, open space in a studio, with a window facing the garden. How would you like to wake up to birds chirping each morning, instead of suitcases rolling down the hallway in a hotel?

The kitchen area that we describe as a "breakfast bar" features a coffee pot, electric tea kettle, microwave oven, toaster, dishwasher, and refrigerator. Please note, we do not have a stove, but why would you want one with all these restaurants to try? Dishes, bowls, mugs, glasses, wine glasses and flatware are also provided along with other necessary kitchen utensils. We are stocked with locally roasted Peet's coffee, tea, and sugar as well as olive oil, salt and pepper. When our guests want to stock up on drinks or breakfast items, we arrange a trip to the store upon their arrival, as a courtesy. Bi-Rite grocery sells prepared foods that are easily microwaved for those who do not want to go to restaurants daily.

Guests are encouraged to feel at home, but are asked to respect the neighbors by keeping the volume down on the TV after 9:30 p.m. We have a high definition, cable television with Netflix for their use and WiFi. In warm weather, the guests are also invited to enjoy the garden, but are requested to take their conversations indoors by 9:30 p.m. As natives, we know plenty of places that you will not find in your guide books or those provided for your use. We love our city, but do travel ourselves, so we are hoping to please our guests in many small ways.

If time allows, you may be able to see the Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park without cost, since our membership allows us to bring in a guest, or The DeYoung Fine Arts Museum where we may bring in 3 guests. Drives into the wine country of Sonoma County can be arranged for you. Tasting charges can be applied to purchases. Personalized shopping trips are also available, as well as a trip along the Pacific Coast to a small farming community, where we can stop for lunch. When was the last time you were able to find abalone on a menu or eat crab cioppino ?

Since we travel most often to Europe, we would be happy to provide a currency exchange of dollars for euros or pounds sterling, based on the Internet rate of the particular day of exchange, thus eliminating bank charges and currency conversion fees for both our guests and ourselves.

Check in time is flexible for your convenience, but we must know the time a week before your arrival. We have selected the least punitive cancellation policy available, again, because we ourselves travel and know that sometimes cancellations are unavoidable. Depending on our own schedule, we may have the opportunity to be more flexible with your check out time, so ask upon your arrival. For further flexibility, we normally leave 2-3 days free between bookings in case our guests need to make last minute changes due to transportation delays or cancellations. We hope you never have to sleep at the airport. We also need enough time to make certain that we thoroughly clean for new guests.

We have a firm no pet policy. Smoking is not allowed on or in the property, no parties, no additional guests. Because of a guest spilling red wine and food on our sofa, no one is allowed to eat or drink on or near the fabric sofa. We cannot offer a low security deposit if we have such costly damage again. Your booking is your express agreement to abide by these house rules.

Getting around

Our bus lines can take you any where and in all directions. We ourselves use the bus to go downtown, to avoid the traffic and cost of parking. The #24 and #43 buses travel north to south and the #5, #21, and #31 travel east and west. visitors can buy a 3 day or 7 day pass that will allow you to ride all the bus lines, the underground light rail, and our famous cable cars as many times as you like. The #24 can take you to Castro St. where you can hop on an "F" trolly taking you to the Ferry Building at the foot of Market St. and further along to Fisherman's Wharf.

Interaction with guest

I'm happy to be as present as your needs dictate, or as absent as your desires require. I meet guests with the key, give them a short orientation of the apartment and then take them to the grocery store. I'm available to answer questions or make suggestions whenever necessary.
