My home is a two bedroom house set back from the street. Easy access to SF via BART and freeways.
The cottage is located behind a larger home owned and inhabited by good friends of mine. It is completely separate from the main house and is accessed through a gate into a shared backyard.
There is one official bedroom with a queen-size pillow-top mattress and living room with an optional AeroBed to accommodate additional guests.
This is my main residence so it does actually have THINGS in it, but I'm mindful enough to tuck them away during your stay (and leave some room for you.
The whole house is yours and you'll have access to the large, fenced yard.
There is free on-street parking in front of the house. Be aware that street sweeping occurs on the 1st Thursday and Friday of the month so pay attention to signage when parking. Like in any city, I recommend not leaving any valuables in your car overnight.
Interaction with guests
Depending on where I'm traveling, I'll be available by phone or email, and will provide an emergency contact if anything goes wrong.
