Welcome to the Bock House.

***We now have Comcast Xfinity internet service for extremely fast wireless internet speeds. 200 mbps download and 10 mbps upload.

Because we only cater to guest that stay 30 days or longer our house feels more like a home shared by a few friends rather than a BnB filled with weekend tourist. Most of our guest usually are here for an internship, their sabbatical or to look for a more permanent living situation in the city.

My friend Julie and I live in the house. Julie has lived in SF for about 20 years, works in real estate and knows the city well. One of us is usually around to help figure out a place to go or how to best get there. There are two very friendly dogs that can always lead you to the park or Sam's corner store for their treat.

The house is in the Alamo Square historic district and located just a block away from the famous Alamo Square and Painted Ladies Houses. (You can use Alamo Square Park as a starting point for map programs to determine travels times and options.) This is almost exactly in the geographic center of the city with lots to do locally and two bus lines close by that can get you almost anywhere you need to go.

It is a fun and active house with a variety of people usually ready to explore the city or chill with a cookout in the back yard. Our home is in a traditional 3-flat Victorian style house. There are 6 bedrooms.

The house was built in 1907 and is located within the Alamo Square Historic District. The #5 bus stop is just outside the front door (go to the beach or downtown) and the #22 is just 2 blocks down the street (will go to the Mission or Upper Pac Height/Marina District). The famous SF bike wiggle is just a few blocks from the house. This helps get you around town with the least amount of hills when riding a bike.

We will be glad to help advise on how to best get around and suggest good local hangouts. Divisadero St. is just 2 blocks away with plenty of cafes, restaurants, bars and live concerts. The famous Haight St. area and Golden Gate Park are just a short walk or bike ride away. If you like Jazz music the Filmore area is right around the corner with lots of options including Yoshi's and the Boom Boom Room. If you are looking for a larger venue for live music try the The Filmore (6 blocks away) where many famous bands often play.

Everyone will have their own room with a locking door. The kitchen/living room and connected back porch are our common social area. A game of darts on the back porch or a BBQ in our backyard are common. The two dogs old and very mellow except when it is time to go to the park.

The kitchen is available for you to use any time including cookware, plates, spice rack, etc. You are welcome to keep things in the food pantry and refrigerator. Just make it your home.

There are two toilets and one shower in 3 separate rooms. So two toilets are still available when someone is in the shower. There is usually not an issue in the morning trying to take a shower since most of our guest are not here for a typical 9-5 work schedule.

Our neighborhood has mostly Victorian style residential dwellings in a safe area with the only businesses being there to support locals. We are far enough away from downtown, the Mission and the financial district to feel very safe while it's still quick and easy to reach them by bus when needed.

This room is on the front of the house and gets lots of sun through 3 large windows. It has a full-size bed, a small desk, dresser, and a flat screen tv with DirectTV including the NFL package. We also have a very fast wi-fi connection and an inkjet printer for the room if needed.

Make sure you look at the weather for the time you are coming. Our weather is not typical compared to the rest of the country. You will want a warm jacket most of July but sometimes just a t-shirt in December.

NO smoking cigarettes in the house but OK on the covered back porch or in the back yard.

A house cleaner comes once a week to clean the house's common areas. There is a washer and dryer in the basement, no-charge to use. We will have clean towels and bedding for you when you check in. If they need to be cleaned during your stay we will leave that up to you. If you need extra towels or bedding just let us know. There is a Walgreen's a few blocks away that will have any personal items you may need. A Lucky's and a Safeway grocery store are both with in walking distance or short bus trip.

We have fishing gear, fresh or saltwater, available for you to use. Those that fly RC planes can borrow a plane. We have electric planes for the park or sailplanes for slope flying on the coast. Camping gear is also available for your use.


Thank you,

The Bock House.

We treat our guest as housemates and they have access to all the common areas and can store bikes in the basement if desired. Friends are welcome to visit, we just ask that they respect everyone else in the house. Having a fun house and a feeling of community is our key goal.


Julie is typically around most of the time to help you figure out any needs. We enjoy meeting and getting to know our guest. We try to have dinners often at the house as well as go out on the town to do fun things. We love our city and have fun exploring it with others.

I rent out a few rooms in an old house in the Alamo Square historic district. I also have a small software business I run from home and work part-time as a flight instructor.
