Description

The space

There is no place like this in the world. The room itself is tiny, but beautiful. Only suited for one guest. Original wallpaper and gaslights. Short walk to the symphony, opera, sf jazz center, city hall, Hayes Valley shopping and dining, Japantown, The Castro, The Haight, and The Painted Ladies. The Independent, The Fillmore, and The Golden Gate Theater are also a short walk.

The bathroom is shared with as many as two other guests.

Roam about the house freely. Play the grand piano. There are occasionally live performances in the parlor...Guests get free tickets to anything happening during their stay.

Im friendly, but respectful of privacy. Im happy to show you some local attractions, or make myself scarce...its your vacation. If you would like a coffee companion or a guided tour of the area, I would be more than happy to spend the time with you. I will be home to greet you and give you an orientation to the house.

Alamo Square Historic District is a vibrant beautiful neighborhood centrally located in S.F.. My address is also considered Hayes Valley. I am steps away from the Hayes Valley shopping district. I am on a "postcard row". City Lights guided tour focused on the Victorian architecture meets in front of my house.

My neighborhood is centrally located in San Francisco. Busses are plentiful. I would say I have very easy access to the rest of the city. I am one block from 21 and 22 bus stops...and six blocks from BART. I would be more than happy to take a ride with you to show you how to get around if you aren't familiar with public transit.

The two toy poodles, Ernestine and Willy, are hypoallergenic. They are sweet little dogs, but i like keep them out of guests rooms unless they are invited by the guest.

This place is a gem in the heart of an incredible area. Mike's hospitality and home make me want to return to SF as soon as possible! The house exudes charm, and Mike has stories about its artifacts that make me regret not spending more time there. My bedroom was comfortable and quiet. The central location allowed me to explore a charming neighborhood while also being able to walk almost everywhere I wanted to go -- including my company's office in the Financial District. Cheers to Mike (who I hope is playing I'll Stand By You on the piano right now) -- and Willie, his small-in-stature, giant-in-spirit dog -- for hosting an incredible week in the city.

I had a fantastic stay in SF due in no small measure to Mike's hospitality. The house is centrally located, making it easy to explore many great neighborhoods even during a short stay in the city. I highly recommend this listing.

Mike was the perfect host! Having never stayed in a private room in someone's house I was a little apprehensive. Mike graciously greeted me getting out of my Lyft . He helped carry my heavy suitcase and was immediately friendly and welcoming. His home as everyone has described is amazing. I was fortunate enough to have him play his beautiful piano. His house was neat and immaculate. The room although small was easily overshadowed by a very comfortable bed. A delightful stay. Great neighbourhood. I appreciate Mike's suggestions for restaurants etc. A special place and a special host!

Great location. I spent most of my time in the city and only came back to sleep, so the room was perfectly sized for me. Also, the bed was amazingly soft and comfortable.

Mike's house is incredible. It looks just like the photos- a stunning Victorian home in the Hayes Valley. Every room is spotless and the beds are DO COMFORTABLE! Mike is an absolute gem of a host. He is quick to respond and has created an inviting and comfortable place to stay. His dog Willy is the sweetest thing and will give you your daily dose of puppy love in case you miss your dog at home. The location is just blocks away from a fun and bustling section of Hayes Valley with great restaurants, wine bars, coffee houses and great boutique shops. You really can't do better, this place a total score!

Mike is such a great host; from meeting me at the door when I got to his place, helping me with my luggage, the tour of his magnificent house, to sharing his musical talents with me during my stay, the experience of staying at his AirBnb is just unforgettable. The place is clean and as described, and as other reviewers mentioned, Mike's house will blow your mind. Close to restaurants and public transport, this is definitely the place to stay in SF!
