About the Property

2 Bdrm With Full Size Beds, 2 Bdrm With Queen Size Beds, 2 Full Baths

4 bedrooms 2 story home in Mission Terrace neighborhood. Bedroom #1 is the biggest of all. There is a TV and VCR. Lots of space for a crib or cot if traveling with children. Bedroom #2 is also very spacious with a huge closet and a couple of dressers. Bedroom #3 has a spacious work desk and chair, perfect for someone traveling on business. Bedroom #4 is on the main level off the dining room. All Bedrooms have windows and therefore lots of natural light and beautiful views. Big back yard, spacious kitchen, formal dining room, living room, deck and laundry facilities. 1 full bathroom on 1st level and 1 full bathroom on 2nd level. Excellent for a large family or large group. Hardwood floors, newly painted exterior and interior. Spacious deck seats 4 to 6.

Mission Terrace is located in the outer Mission, it borders with the Glenn Park area. The neighborhood is very diverse and you will find Italian, Thai, Chinese, Mexican and Salvadorean Restaurants within walking distance of the house. Restaurante Familiar on mission St is one of my favorite places to eat Pupusas. If you are craving Mexican food, try out Taqueria el Menudo, their tacos are awesome! Interested in a big succulent hamburger? If your taste buds want pizza, try Bravo's at 5145 Mission Street, they also deliver.

3 blocks from the house you will find numerous major banks: Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, US Bank, etc. There is also a Walgreen's Pharmacy 3 blocks from the house and several grocery stores within a block or 2. Casa Lucas located at 4555 Mission Street has a huge selection of fruits, vegetables and groceries, especially from Latin America. Safeway Supermarket is located at 4950 Mission Street and it's open 24 hours a day.
Public transportation is very easy and accessible from the home. 1/2 block from the house is the 14 Mission bus and the 49 Van Ness bus. Other buses near the house are: 28, 29. 44, 52, and the 43. You can also take the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) located 15 minutes walk from the house or you can take the bus from the Bart get off on Mission street and walk 3 blocks to the house. The house is a mere 15 minute drive from San Francisco International airport or you can take BART and get off at either Glenn Park Station or Balboa Park Station and take a bus to the house.

It is hard to believe that this house was built in 1906 because it is intact, solid and has not sustained any damages during the earthquakes in the past 3 decades. The home has crown molding through out and has a lot of character.
Guest will have access to the entire house and the items within it.
My only request is that guest notify me as soon as possible of any broken items.
I like to greet the guest when they first arrive and walk them through the house. I will check in with the guest periodically to ensure that all their needs are being met. Unless there is a problem, I don't generally go back and visit until the date of the departure.
Our neighborhood is diverse with numerous fruit and vegetable markets. There are mostly family owned businesses and all major banks are located within walking distance of the house. Its a sunny part of San Francisco.
The house is located near several bus lines. The 14 Mission which takes you to downtown and embarcadero area, 49 Mission/Excelsior which takes you to Ghirardeli Square, 28- 19th avenue which takes you to Golden Gate Bridge, 43 Masonic, 54 Felton, 29 and 44 buses. Only a 10 minute walk to the Glenn Park Bart Station.

About the owner: My husband Ramon and I are very outgoing and love to travel. We have gone on a Baltic Sea Cruise, several Mediterranean and Caribbean cruises and are always looking for our next adventure. Besides retiring from the US Labor Department, Ramon is a musician and is used to being on the spotlight. We have a son who is an architect/animator and a daughter who is a registered nurse. We both love to cook and entertain. I am from Honduras and my husband is from El Salvador, we have lived in SF for 40+ years. I recently retired as a Manager at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center and I'm enjoying my newfound freedom. We are looking for travelers that enjoy the comforts of home in a spacious and charming victorian house.

Why the Owner Chose Outer Mission, San Francisco, CA, USA:
We were looking for a diverse neighborhood years ago when our children were small. We saw a golden opportunity to purchase in Mission Terrace.

Sunny charming neighborhood and house. Quiet and welcoming. The house accommodates large groups for meetings and events. Excellent location for business travelers. This is a perfect setting for 4 individuals wanting their own room, or 4 couples wanting their own bedroom. The proximity to the airport and downtown San Francisco makes this house ideal.
