Neighborhood and Transportation:

Located in the trendy Mission district, you will get to live where SF locals want to live and love to visit. In addition to the excellent restaurants and specialty cafes located around the house, you are a short walk to major streets of restaurants, shopping, and nightlife - Valencia St, Mission St, and 24th St. Plus, you are near the popular Castro and SOMA neighborhoods. Besides driving and walking, there are several major public transport options nearby including the BART (like a subway), buses and the F-line (with it's vintage streetcars that carry passengers along Market Street and The Embarcadero). These will take you to the Financial District, Moscone Center, Ferry Building, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Haight-Ashbury and other areas.

If you want to eat some meals at home, you are a short walk from Safeway (national supermarket), Trader Joes (popular West Coast chain), and Rainbow Grocery (local organic-focused market), as well as the Latino markets along Mission St. If you want some exercise with all the fine dining, there's a rock wall climbing gym super close and 24 hour fitness is nearby.

Configuration of the The Mission Townhouse:

1. First (Ground) Floor - Enter right from the sidewalk, private garage, clothes washer/dryer.

2. Second Floor - Redwood Bedroom with a Keetsa Tea Leaf Dream mattress (their most plush and body-relaxing mattress with memory foam and iCoil combined for ultimate comfort), a large bay window seat, closet and adjacent full bathroom (toilet, sink, shower/tub).

3. Third Floor - Living room area with a couch that can be a queen pullout bed, television, bay window reading chair, dining area that seats 6, and kitchen. The kitchen includes an oven, 4 burner stove, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, and full-sized fridge.

4. Fourth Floor - Garden balcony with a table and up to 4 seats, desk and chair, four lounge chairs, full bathroom and closet. There are several skylights that give this level a gentle, sunlit warmth.

5. Loft Bedroom - Queen bed with bedside lights, glass shelves of picture books and a privacy wall that has wooden lanterns. Please note, it is only accessible via a ladder, however the ladder is fixed to the ground and wall.

The Interior Decor:

If you find ladders, stairs, wood and nooks fun then you are going to love the Mission Townhouse. It was loosely inspired by the Swiss Family Robinson multi-level treehouse concept. We chose a tile for the entrance-way that looks like golden/brown rock, symbolizing the layers of rock in the earth. The stairs and 2nd floor are a dark brown carpet, symbolizing the fertile soil above the rock that holds the tree's roots. From the living room/dining/kitchen level upwards, the floors are wooden, symbolizing the tree climbing up to the clouds.

The whole house has been thematically decorated with furniture from the mid-century modern era and special pieces designed from wood reclaimed from Bay Area buildings. The artwork, hand towels, and bedding have images of birds, butterflies, and plants. The Redwood Bedroom has a beautiful custom-made headboard and shelves that were crafted from recovered support beams from a house built around 100 years ago. In the loft bed, you will find a ladder recovered from an old warehouse as well as some rare eucalyptus beams used in the creation of the custom bed. All together, the home has become a playful expression of tree forts built as kids that we hope will inspire the playful nature in you.

Wired for Work... and for Play....

The Mission Townhouse comes wired with Xfinity triple-play. Wireless Internet, 2 full HD (1080p) cable TV's and telephones with free local and US long distance. Sony Playstation (PS3 with a selection of video games) and DVD players are included. For additional entertainment we have provided our guests with streaming Netflix capability.

Feel like a local in a culturally rich and vibrant area of San Francisco, while being a short drive or public transportation ride to the Moscone Center, Union Square and other tourist sites. There are a variety of nearby grocery stores and supermarkets. The freeway is very close and the SFO airport is less than a 15 minute drive away.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: This photo is of us dressed as clowns, at a California summer music festival, and taking a call from a guest - always at your service. =) We are playful, loving and creative. We truly adore meeting people, hearing about their lives, and making a difference for others. Being able to provide a clean, lovely and stylish home to guests is deeply fulfilling. It is an honor to have the opportunity to be hospitable. Even if most of our communication is with you (the individual reserving the home), we know that we are taking care of you so that you may take care of the other members in your group - whether that is three generations of a family or a group of friends or a team of coworkers. We live in San Francisco and offer whole homes to guests that we own and in addition, we help some dear friends and family by providing guest services for homes that they own. We are passionate about providing wonderful customer service. The home owners we help appreciate our passion and want people who stay in their homes to feel cared for and loved by us. All of our activities - such as responding swiftly to questions, fulfilling special requests, and providing neighborhood information to guests - are intended create a positive experience. For clarification, taking care of guests is at times a team effort. So you may read reviews that mention other people's names who are (or have been) part of our excellent team.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mission:
                  When the Mission Townhouse was purchased over 10 years ago, there were signs that the neighborhood would go through a major transformation, which it has. For example, a building across the street used to be an industrial dry cleaner and now is a high end handmade ceramics manufacturer with a top tier coffee roaster in the entrance. Having been home to a major Latino population, the Mission still retains many excellent and inexpensive taco and pupusa restaurants. However, it now also has phenomenal culinary creations that vary greatly in their nationality and style. The artistic and creative population that moved into the Mission, in addition to the Latino population, has resulted in an incredible number of murals and public art displays around the house. The neighborhood is so diverse and vibrant it's addictive. Much like the neighborhood, the house had an excellent mixture of historic touches (like the bay windows) and modern elements (like the metal railing). It was the perfect canvas of our mix of historic mid-century furniture and the creation of new furniture with reclaimed wood. It inspires a sense of ongoing exploration and development.
