I am a 46 year old Professional Meditation Teacher, Spiritual-Life and Business Coach, seeking to replace my current roommate who is moving to the East Bay to help his family through illness. I am essentially a spiritual teacher, advanced meditation practitioner and student of the mind (not your typical Marina roommate)! With that said, I seek to relax and have fun at home and not take life too seriously.
This is a 600 sq ft apartment that is technically a 1BR with the living room closed off in the evenings and converted into my bedroom. PLEASE, BEFORE YOU RULE IT OUT, please read on, hear my story, see the PHOTOS TAB and/or come by for a visit because you will be surprised that the common space feels very much like it would in a 2BR, with the only difference that it is “closed off” around 11pm for privacy.
Why am I sharing? I love San Francisco! There is a place and a need here for creative people like me, even if I am not working in the Financial District and making big bucks! The transition to full time Meditation Coach is my passion and my purpose and I have decided to do what it takes to make it happen. Sharing this apartment simply makes it work. In addition, I actually like living with others and sharing my warm home. This is a perfect situation for someone who is looking for a fully furnished apartment that feels like a home, a “real”, kind, thoughtful, living experience and a sanctuary to rest, recharge, laugh and be inspired. For the last 15 months, my roommate was a weekday Business commuter, who I think loved the fact that he could have a light hearted laugh, a warm place to rest during his busy week and not have to spend extra energy on maintaining an extra home. I welcome a full time roommate too that appreciates what I do and wouldn’t mind coordinating schedules for when I need to teach my phone classes or see occasional clients in the home.
About your room:
*Fully Furnished private room with Queen size bed, end tables, clothing armoire, desk, office chair and large, full size closet.
*Quiet, interior room with double pane windows.
*Black-out drapes if you like to sleep in a cave.
About my room:
*A futon is a couch by day and my bed by night. Since I work in the home, occasionally entertain clients and do not particularly want to look at my “bedroom” all day, I dress the room as a living room during the day. You are welcome to use these areas as needed during the day, then when I get ready to sleep (around 10-11pm), the living room and kitchen area is closed off.
*My space is typically tidy and all my personal things are tucked away in closets.
About the shared area:
*I have been spoiled with Bob, as he ate all his meals out and never used the kitchen. However, I am happy to share the kitchen, living room, and bathroom of course. I am happy to occasionally watch tv together, cook together, etc. as long as I can have private time when needed. You always have your room to retreat to for your own privacy.
About the apartment and amenities:
*Fully furnished living room and kitchen with dishwasher, garbage disposal, cooking utensils, flatware, etc.
*Washer and dryer in building. Laundry service just down the block.
*Basic Cable TV, high-speed internet
* *Street Parking only – however if you act fast you might be able to snag my old roommate’s garage sublet across the street for $250 per month. There are other garage sublets in the neighborhood as well.
*Storage: bedroom only. No external storage available.
*Bus Lines: 30, 30x, to North Beach/Union Square/Financial District/BART/SOMA/Caltrain, 42 to Fillmore District, Lower Haight/Potrero Hill, 43 to Upper Haight/Golden Gate Park
*Community Park across the street with tennis courts, basketball courts and golf driving range.
*5 block walk to the Bay front/Boat Marina/Marina Green intramural fields/Golden Gate Bridge Promenade and 10 min walk to Presidio Park/hiking trails.
We taking turns paying for the housekeeper ($100) every 2-6 weeks, (depending on how tidy you are).
*It is important (critical) that you work outside of the house and have a steady schedule. This is because my telephone coaching requires a super-quiet environment and I will be scheduling clients weeks in advance during your work hours.
*You are a party of one. You will not be bringing anyone to live with you.
*You don’t have a lot of furniture or are willing to store it elsewhere while you are living here.
*You are not into drinking, 420, illicit or prescription drugs.
*You are mature, tidy, peaceful, happy, caring and like to laugh.
I am a 46 year old straight SWF not currently in a relationship, mostly focused on my spirituality and career. Obviously, I meditate a lot by myself and on the phone. When not meditating or working I like to get out into nature or take improv classes. I prefer kind but direct communication. In case you are wondering if it would be weird to live with someone who meditates quite a bit, please know that I am a pretty normal person that just gets a kick out of studying how the mind works and helping people lighten up. I try not to take it all too seriously. Prior to this career, I was a Database Marketing Consultant in the Financial Industry (where I did my share of being serious) and therefore have a very practical side too. My last roommate was a prominent business person who didn’t meditate at all and we got along great.

Thank you so very much for reading all this detail. I hope you find the perfect place and wish you many kicks and laughs on your journey.
