Property description

Completely furnished 2 bedroom 1 bath upper unit flat with high ceiling. One bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has a twin-sized daybed with a trundle. Large gourmet kitchen for those who enjoy cooking and it includes all utensils and useful appliances. Linens and towels are provided along with the convenience of front-loading washer and dryer for your laundry… beats idle time spent at the laundromat.

This cozy and unpretentious unit comes with WiFi high-speed DSL and is located on a quiet street and safe neighborhood, two blocks from Golden Gate Park, De Young Museum, California Academy of Science, one block from Safeway Supermarket, and two blocks from Clement Street markets, shops, and excellent restaurants. Close to Presidio Golf Course, Rossi Park with tennis courts, swimming pool, and newly rebuilt playground, 10 minutes by car to Lincoln Golf Course and Veterans Hospital, a few minutes from UCSF, UC Medical Center, walking distance to St. Mary's Hospital, California Pacific Medical Center, University of San Francisco (USF), with convenient public transportation link to anywhere in San Francisco just around the corner. And if you are nostalgic, Haight-Ashbury is reachable by strolling through Golden Gate Park.

For a family with small children, this is the perfect location as it is close to many playgrounds within short walking distance in a very safe and family-oriented neighborhood. Golden Gate Park offers many activities for adults as well as children with trails for walking, hiking, jogging, and biking. The Presidio National Park offers spectacular views of the city and Golden Gate Bridge with quiet, woodsy trails for walking, jogging, hiking, and biking.

Free on-street residential parking.

If you are traveling with small children , cribs, high chairs, and strollers(single or double) are available for rental. Daily/weekly housekeeping service available by arrangement. And for your own added protection, we steam clean the bathroom after the last guests and require that shoes be removed upon entry.

Why live in a hotel while you can live amongst the locals... live like a real native San Franciscan... even for a week... in a very safe neighborhood...

Please note that the booking calendar is always up-to-date. Book through this site in the normal manner unless, of course, you have further questions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a school teacher, easy going, friendly, and like to meet new friends.

Why the Owner Chose Richmond District:
I grew up on this block and my parents' house was just across the street. And over the years I have come to realize that this block is probably the most convenient and centrally located spot in the entire city. Property on this block rarely becomes available and when this was available, we bought it.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This unit has a very large gourmet kitchen with all the utensils. The large professional kitchen with granite counter-top is great for serious cooking . It's a very quiet and safe neighborhood where everything we need is close by. It's a family neighborhood and on Sundays and holidays Golden Gate Park is closed to auto traffic and lots of spontaneous and terrific activities are going on in the Park, which is just two blocks away. There is also a mini park just one block away safely behind the police station. You will always feel relaxed staying at this property.
