Our home is your home! This is a lovely 3 bedroom home which is the second floor flat in a 2-unit Victorian building. With high ceilings, hardwood floors, big windows and gracious spaces, along with warm colors and tasteful furnishings, you will feel very comfortable and at home! Two large bedrooms sleep four adults comfortably, plus a small third bedroom can be used to accommodate up to six. The sunny and warm kitchen, dining room and deck look out on a lovely back garden with lemon trees and cala lilies, and pleasant vistas of Bernal Hill to the south and Noe Valley and Diamond Heights to the west. The flat is on a nice residential street in the central and hip Mission District. You'll find endless great restaurants and galleries, fun pubs, and interesting local neighborhood life in the Mission, just around the corner. But with its central location and great access to transport, it's also a great place to be based for enjoying the whole city or beyond!
The Neighborhood:: The house is on a residential street adjacent to the 24th Street corridor in the Mission District. The Mission is San Francisco at its absolute vibrant best! Historically the center of the Mexican community in SF -- now with gentrification and SF's most cutting edge food, art and cultural scenes -- it is a diverse and interesting place! Within a few blocks walk you'll find countless traditional Mexican eateries, along with some of the hottest 'foodie' destination spots in the city (St Francis Fountain, Dynamo Doughnuts, Roosevelt Tamale Parlor, Pal's Takeaways, Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream), fun pubs (Pop's!), the Brava Theater, plenty of other eatery choices including sushi, Thai and Vietnamese. The Mission is the center of public wall mural art in SF and has great galleries. BART rail, SF Muni bus and US-101/I-80 are all close with easy access to the rest of the City and the Bay Area. Downtown, SOMA and Castro all nearby and easy to enjoy.
The House:: Built in 1890, we purchased and renovated the house in 2002. It is pleasant and homey, with classical Victorian grace and charm, making it a comfortable place to be and relax. You'll find quality and tasteful furnishings and appointments, typical of a home (as it is!) rather than a vacation rental. With two larger bedrooms (queen beds) and one smaller bedroom (full bed), the flat will be most comfortable for about 4 persons sharing, but can sleep up to 6. It is perfect for a family, or for two couples travelling together. The kitchen is well-equipped and good for cooking and the dining room is pleasant for quiet dinners in. You will be pleased with the amenities and comfortable in the space - we're sure you'll feel at home!
You'll find comfortable furnishings and appointments. Since it is our home too and our co-owner's family lives in the building, we hope you'll treat it with care and respect. No large-group entertainment (parties!) are allowed and we request you check with us in advance if you are planning any guests.
Absolutely no smoking or use of candles is allowed inside of the house! You may smoke outdoors on the back deck only.
You don't need a car if you stay here and wish to enjoy the city. If you do have a car, street parking is available and safe but with various restrictions such as residential permits, street cleaning times, and the like. Overnight and weekend parking near to the flat is generally fine. Daytime on weekdays from 0800 to 1800 is more difficult, generally requiring visitors (non-residents) to move the car every 1-2 hours. SF General Hospital also has a parking deck with paid parking available 2 blocks away....moreless

The Mission District is an ethnically diverse and hip urban neighborhood, a mix of quiet residential streets and interesting neighborhood retail districts, and the center of public mural art in San Francisco. The 24th Street corridor at your doorstep has countless great restaurants and fun bars, including a number of destination restaurants popular with the 'foodie' crowd of urban hipsters! The popular Valencia corridor is just a short distance away in the Mission too, with another wide selection of popular restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. The flat is 1 block from major city bus lines and an easy 15 minute walk to the BART (metro rail) station at Mission and 24th Streets. It is also a 2 block walk to San Francisco General Hospital. Downtown, SOMA, the Castro, Noe Valley, and other popular destinations beyond the Mission are convenient by public transit or even bicycle. For folks needing to commute either to the Peninsula/San Jose, or across the Bay Bridge to Oakland and beyond, easy access to US-101 and I-80 is also just blocks from the flat, making it one of the quickest commuting locations from the city. It's an interesting and vibrant neighborhood and will be a convenient home base for many San Francisco visitors.
