Property description

Our 2-unit home is Victorian and was built in 1906 right after the earthquake. The lower unit is completely separate from the top unit. We’ve done extensive work on the home and land. It is a double sized lot so half of the land is landscaped with waterfall and pond with fish, over 15 varieties of Hawaiian and Polynesian plants and an expansive lawn and yard. It is a 2 unit home, we live above and Halekipa (the guest home) is on the first level. Our 1 bedroom unit features Bamboo wood floors, carpet in the bedroom, washer and dryer in unit, updated appliances, full size bed and pull out couch in living. It can comfortably fit 4. There are extra pillows, blankets, sheets and towels for you also. We also have a few things for children (boys and girls sleeping bags and a few games…still adding on to this. The home is equipped with High speed WIFI and Cable T.V. (Astound) as well. This property also dubs as the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center. You’ll notice a dance studio and library on the land as well. Once a week there are classes (dance) and once a month classes on cultural arts/crafts (weaving and lei making). Our home was awarded the Beautification award for South San Francisco in 2011 for the most beautiful Home in South San Francisco!
We are located in downtown South San Francisco (SSF) all restaurants are walking distance (Starbucks, Pete’s, Subway, multiple Chinese and Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese , Korean, Italian, Argentinian, American, Japanese and more). There are a few grocery, liquor and drug stores within a block. Some of our favorite restaurants: For Breakfast – Cable Car Café (nothing fancy, just quick good ole fashioned breakfast), For Lunch - La Morena (best al pastor nachos, tacos and plates), For Dinner - Izanami (great specials, brand new and nice atmosphere, some killer Ramen!). If you’ve never had See’s candy, the factory is down the street you might want to go in for samples ;-)
Everything you could possibly need is within 1 mile (drug stores, department stores, chain restaurants etc..) Most people stay at our place go site seeing. There is 1 car parking designated for our guest but if you don’t drive bus is within 1 block, Train (Cal. Train) is 4 blocks, Bart is 10 blocks away. All of these can take you somewhere interesting. Downtown San Francisco is about 10 minutes by car. Besides San Francisco you should make time to explore our coast especially downtown Pacifica and cruise along famous highway 1 to visit downtown Half Moon Bay!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Our names are Kawika and Kia'i and we are the owners of this property and we currently live on the property. Here we also run both the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center and the Hawaiian Cultural Dance Group called Halau o Keikiali'i travelling world-wide preserving & perpetuating the rich Culture of Hawaii. Let the Spirit of Aloha welcome you to this perfect weekend getaway.

Why the Owner Chose South San Francisco:
We fell in love with this property when we first saw it. Because it is located on a double wide lot, we were amazed with the space and all the potential it offered. Over the years, we lovingly worked on landscaping by adding trees, plants, & foliage most of which are native to Hawaii. We continued by adding a pond & waterfall and worked on improving the dwellings including our dance studio located on back of the premises.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love beautiful Victorians because they have so much character and this home was exactly what we were looking for when we made our move to the Peninsula. Our goal was to bring a piece of Hawaii to this land, to grow native plants, and have a place to continue our Cultural work. We love the fact that this area where our home is located is so convenient to shopping, restaurants, shopping malls, theaters, and all the specialty shops we could ever need....not to mention the abundance of parking which was refreshing moving here from the Big City of San Francisco.
