SAN FRANCISCO SHORT-TERM RESIDENTIAL RENTAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: STR-OOOOO38
Possession of a San Francisco Short-Term Rental Registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code Section 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire, or other Code violations.
Your fully furnished master bedroom suite is located in an elegant Castro home built around 1930. The light and airy 13' x 15' suite features a queen-sized bed with a heated mattress pad, two armoires, a chest of drawers, two nightstands for storage, a wing chair for reading, a desk and comfortable chair for writing or web-surfing, a stereo, TV with Roku/Netflix/HuluPlus, wireless internet, full private bath with hairdryer, and walk-in closet with iron and ironing board. I provide luxurious bed and bath linens and terry cloth robes for your use. Because your room is in the back corner of the house, with windows on two sides looking out onto a lovely tree-lined residential street, it is very quiet and private.
You may enjoy strolling along the many small neighborhood streets nearby, featuring quaint houses and beautiful views of the surrounding hills and the skyscrapers of the Financial District visible in the distance. Your bedroom is stocked with many Bay Area guidebooks to inform you about the plentiful local attractions and restaurants. A cell phone with unlimited voice calls and texts is available for your free use during your stay, if needed.
You are welcome to use the public areas of the home, including the living room with fireplace and baby grand piano, formal dining room, and well-appointed kitchen (fully stocked with all sorts of appliances, espresso maker, pots and pans, cooking utensils and dozens of interesting cookbooks). Washer and dryer are available for use by advance arrangement.
Should you be traveling with an infant or small child, I have a Graco "Pack 'n Play" portable playpen/bassinet with a 3" foam mattress that you are welcome to use during your stay.
Street parking is generally available, but you are welcome to park in a space in front of the garage by advance arrangement (except during the once-a-week 2-hour street cleaning window).
The heart of the Castro district (with the Castro MUNI Metro Station to downtown and the rest of the city) is a pleasant 10-minute downhill walk away, and the 33-Stanyan bus (stop less than 100 yards down the street) will whisk you to the restaurants and bars of the Castro, lovely Dolores Park, the hip hangouts, restaurants and galleries of the Mission, the 16th Street/Mission BART station, and Golden Gate Park. The historic F-Market streetcar will take you on a leisurely journey from the Castro to downtown, the recently renovated shops, markets, and eateries of the Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street, and on around the Embarcadero to Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square.
My home is an easy one-transfer BART($8)/MUNI($2) ride from San Francisco and Oakland International Airports.
Your host is a friendly 53-year-old gay classical musician and attorney.
I look forward to welcoming you to San Francisco!
P.S. San Francisco has determined that Airbnb hosts should collect the city tax charged on hotel stays. I believe in the value of the hotel tax -- its revenues provide much-needed support to arts organizations throughout our city.
