Property description

Private entrance on ground floor of a gorgeous historic 1895 Italianate Victorian home. FREE WiFi AND FREE Hi-Def Internet TV (Netflix, etc.). Includes a front living room/office, full designer tiled bathroom with antique mirror, beautiful granite countertop, tub/shower, and a large sunny farm-facing rear bedroom eating/sitting area with queen bed.

Walking distance to trolley/bus lines, restaurants, cafes, shops. Street parking is easy.


We mean green!
Our garden gets the benefit of our compost. Paper, glass, plastic is all recycled. We don’t use chemicals on our garden, or to clean. Linens, towels, robes are all natural fibers.

See our website at www.emsinn.com

Urban Farm: We offer you a quiet oasis that is a working mini-farm. In our Mediterranean climate, we grow veggies, herbs, greens and flowers year-round. We have a mini-orchard for seasonal fruit.

The pond with goldfish is a relaxing spot to sit and watch birds, butterflies, squirrels and dragonflies flit by. Bees visit the flowering fruit trees in spring – so many the whole tree buzzes! You’ll even spy the occasional egret, great blue heron or red-tailed hawk. San Francisco isn’t just about Pier 39 sea lions. You’d never think you were in a big city!

FREE Services: FREE WiFi for your convenience. Bring your laptop to connect.

FREE Internet TV - Netflix, Pandora, and many other channels on our upgraded Hi-Def flat screen TV. Enjoy!

Location

Car: Not Necessary

Convenient central location: We are located right smack dab in the middle of The City. Great access to 101/280/ Silicon Valley corridors, or public transport to downtown shopping/theatres and tourist attractions. Walk to nearby coffee shops, or a wealth of restaurants. Located in a safe area, our Noe Valley neighborhood is family oriented with a playground, tennis/basketball courts, and baseball diamond only a block away. We are really a village, with a small town friendly vibe where locals smile or chat. Walk up nearby Church Street to 24th and you’ll find lots of restaurants, antique, gift and clothing shops - all with our “only in San Francisco” flavor!

Other Activities: Custom tours, cable cars, theater/entertainment, indoor rock climbing
