Quiet Room in a Groovy 1906 House

Apartment, Private room - San Francisco, United States

ID 93794

Description

Stay in a 105 year old Painted Lady with a side of San Francisco's bohemian 1970's history and art. SOMA/Mission with easy public transport.

You will have a cozy studio/bedroom w/ couch & TV/Desk and real queen bed (Murphy/wall bed flips up out of the way in the day). Floor plan (see photo) gives you privacy. It's a full time guest room so the closet, built in shelves and nook w/ small dresser are empty & ready for your belongings.

Shared access to: large eat-in kitchen (with view to the yard), deck & garden, laundry, and Edwardian bath with clawfoot tub shared with only your hostess who is at work 7:30 a - 6:30 p M-F so you have plenty of full access private time to kitchen & bath. Occasionally you may see Eric as well (his flat is the other listing you see in our profile).

AWESOME STUFF ABOUT THE GROOVY PAINTED LADY:
-We were in book the "Painted Ladies of San Francisco"
-Small yard with deck.
-1/2 block to 2 Groceries: Organic Co-op or Large & Cheap.
-0-3 blocks: Multiple restaurants & cafes & a permanent truck food court.
--Bus to Fisherman's Wharf - 1 block. Underground to everywhere, 3 blocks.
-Walk to hip, cool stuff in the Mission.
-Edwardian bath with Giant Clawfoot tub
-The former owner was/is a very interesting lady and there is original art in your room!

SHE IS 105 YEARS OLD SO...
-She was "updated" in 1972 and so very very hippie (I'm slowly restoring her).
-Our Fab 1920's gas stove is a Work-In-Progress -- the stove top works great but to bake or roast, use the small (modern) convection oven (no 10 lb turkeys or full size trays - I have trays that fit it if you want to bake). Or the microwave, rice maker, slow cooker or bread-maker.

AMENITIES:
-WiFi & networked printer
-TV/DVD/Cable (and ability to plug laptop in & use as 19" monitor)
-iPhone/pod dock w/ radio & alarm clock
-Free local phone
-Coffee maker grinds & drips on a timer for easy wake-up.
-Plenty of room in the fridge & cabinet for your stuff.
-Real comfy queen mattress on a real bed (A Murphy Bed is not a futon or airbed or fold out -- although it does flip up & down... no, not with you in it).
-Washer & Dryer (free!)
-Soap, shampoo, linens, towels etc.

On Site Pet: Your room is kept Kitty-Free (closed & no access for cat). In addition, she may hate you & hide. As to the rest of the house, I am mildly allergic so don't worry about hair - I am obsessive about kitty hair. And she's an indoor/outdoor kitty so kitty litter & food are OUTSIDE -- no bad smells!

SMOKING: No smoking of any kind indoors please. However, deck is the smoking lounge.
PARKING: Street parking is relatively easy, but FYI, 50% is restricted to 2 hours M-Sat 9-6. Parking garage around the corner - just $5/day.
KIDS: This house is soooo not toddler proof! I suggest 4+ and still a max of 2 for the room (one adult + 1 child). I'd also consider a babe-in-arms (2 adults + pre-toddling baby ok).

    The house and the room were really nice and quiet, excatly like in the description. And the place was easy to reach from the airport even when coming later at night. We loved the old groovy house, remember to take woolen socks - floors in old houses are quite cold.

    Naomi is a great host - very thoughtful. She gave us lots of useful tips from San Francisco on her website and in the "guest file" that was in our room. We definitely recommend staying at Naomi's.
