2-BR Vic flat near Valencia Corridor, a vibrant, multicultural area, great for foodies, music, art galleries, bars. Flat is sunny, has style, comfort, charm,& more! Easy access to everything. (see my great reviews here:
This large flat has lots of natural light, fresh air, large rooms and is very clean. It has style, comfort, and charm. The house was built in 1895, and I have retained most of the original features such as windows and doors, wainscoting, flooring, light fixtures, and more.
There are two bedrooms you can use, should you desire separate sleeping areas.
This bedroom is at the front of the house and is well appointed and spacious. I recently installed brand new double paned windows, so it's quieter even though the street is busy. The bed is queen-sized and the linens are 100% cotton and pillows and comforter are down-filled. The room also has a portable speaker that you can connect to your phone. Dimmer lights and a portion of one of the closet space , (look for the orange dot)is available for you to use.
This bedroom is smaller, but still very comfortable and roomy enough for two large suitcases and has plenty of closet space for you to use ( look for the orange dot on the door). The bed is a full sized bed that is very comfortable. This room has a portable speaker for your phone to connect to so you can listen to your music. Because it is on the side of the house, the room is quieter. Dimmer lights.
Living Room and TV room: These 2 rooms have a open floor plan. Comfortable couches, 42" flat screen w/apple TV and a great stereo with Iphone/Ipod hook up. Dimmer lights in all the rooms. Living, TV, eating area and kitchen are one large open space.
Kitchen and Eating Area:
If you like to cook this kitchen is great! the old 1940 O'Keeffe & Merritt stove can handle all your cooking needs. It's also equipped with AllClad pots, Japanese knives, and many more kitchen tools. I ask you to handle them with care. The antique dinner table expands to accommodate comfortably 6 people. The 2 extra chairs if needed is kept in the laundry room. There is no dishwasher.
Bathroom: Spacious and pretty marbled bathroom has a good shower and a deep tub. In the past, often we used to soak in the deep tub and take longer strong showers, but now with the drought and water shortage, we are limiting these treats. I ask guests to be considerate to the situation, and respect the guidelines of conserving water. First shelf of the shower is for guests just in case you did not bring your toiletries feel free to use whatever is in this shelf.
Laundry Room: Is funky, but clean and is also you will notice my cat's litter box, and food will be kept there (she stays with me when the house is rented out so you won't see her).
Washer and dryer are in good condition and if you have to do a load you are welcome to use our laundry soap and other supplies.
Little Deck: Is charming and perfect for a warm eve. You can sit and have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Or if you smoke, relax and smoke your cigarette there. The BBQ is also available to use.
I want to call your attention that this listing a new one where I have no reviews because it has never been rented per month: However, you may check my other listing (same home) where I am a Superhost :
Guests are welcome to use the entire house, including the the deck off the kitchen with BBQ pit. But please do not use the garden/patio, or garage in the lower unit as designated for the tenants downstairs.

Другие важные подробности
As I mention before, this is not a party house. This house is intended for quieter guests who wants to come home to a nice, clean, comfortable space to recharge after their busy day at work or at their internship.
Street parking is manageable. This is a great choice if you have a car. While most SF neighborhoods require a parking permit in order to park for any longer than two hours, my neighborhood has no time restrictions for parking so you can leave the car for as long as you want on the streets which does not have parking meters. Guests need to be aware of the street cleaning on South Van Ave which happens on Mon/Wed/Fri 9 - 11 am on other side of street, and Tue/Thur 9-11 am on my side. Some streets nearby are also free; others have parking meters, yet others have free parking but with a limit of 2 hours. Pay close attention to the signs. South Van Ness, Folsom, and the small streets in between are free to park; others are meter from 9-6., Monday through Saturday. Sundays are free.
South Van Ness, at certain times is a busy street. The bar on the corner, The Phone Booth, has been voted several time the best neighborhood bar, which is awesome, but at warm nights, at closing time can be noisy if you are a light sleeper.

I am originally from Brazil and came to San Francisco in 1980 to learn English. I fell in love with the lifestyle and freedom that San Francisco offers and for awhile now I’ve considered it my second home. I spent my career in the social services area assisting people with developmental disabilities to improve their lives and integrate them into society. The best part of my job was building personal relationships with my clients and their families. While I’ve recently retired, I’m looking forward to being part of the airbnb community not just because I love to meet new people but also to be a part of guests’ San Francisco experience by sharing the home that I cherish.
As for my personal interests, I enjoy being active, especially in nature, listening to music, dancing, and spending time with my friends and family. I love to travel and have visited several countries in Europe, including Italy (my favorite), Argentina, Canada, and Trinidad and Tobago. When I feel the urge to reconnect with my culture and see my family, which happens every year, I travel to Rio de Janeiro.
