About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3 max)

Quiet Garden Apartment one block from public transportation and walking distance to many restaurants, groceries, general shopping, and sights.

Relax in the comfort of a cozy, comfy apartment with wireless and cable or sit outside and enjoy the sun and beautiful garden while being five (ok, fifteen) minutes from some of the best dining in the world

Small bedroom with a standard double bed and connecting full bath. Bedroom contains a closet with sliding glass doors and storage chest. In the separate living area: writing desk, single/twin bed, comfortable couch and club chair. Flat screen TV and new eat-in kitchen.

We're extremely close to public transportation (99 on transportation score and 98 on walking score), but sadly, street parking is tedious. Numerous parking restrictions are enforced on a weekday basis in the neighborhood. I advise you to leave the car at home or use the city muni, or any of the convenient car services; FlyWheel, City Share, Zip Car, UBER or Lyft.

Keywords: Sweet and sophisticated garden apartment, close to public transportation, shopping and great dining options. We live on site.

Great Apartment in Great Location with Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment! I wish I could become a permanent resident! I spent four lovely nights in this apartment during the SFO heat wave in September. Rhonda was great in answering all of my questions and offering suggestions for a more comfortable stay.

The apartment was spotless, very roomy, and had everything I could even think of wanting and remained comfortable despite the heat. The grounds are lovely, it was like a little piece of paradise in the middle of a busy city. The location is amazing being so close to transit that can get you anywhere you want and walking distance to everything. You will not go wrong if you chose this unit!

Great small apt

  • 5 of 5

The owners were fabulous and worked with me to make my stay enjoyable accommodating my weird flight times. Your steps from the F line to get everywhere in the city you want to go (saved me Lyft $). I was here for the Dreamforce conference and the bed was so comfortable after walking all day. The even provide robes and slippers and nail polish remover! Stuff you never have room for in your bags. The backyard is beautiful. Keep in mind you are in the lower level so you can hear people above you. I was never in the apt Dreamforcing so I didn't notice it much. Thanks for providing such a great place.

Great little getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home is as cozy as pictured and everything as described. The backyard is a great little spot to relax and the location was perfect for the activities/places I was interested in visiting. Communication with the owner was also great; they were responsive to questions and provided new information that was helpful to our stay.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my 2 teens stayed here for 4 nights. There was nothing we wanted for..and if there WAS, it was quickly supplied by the fantastic owners.

This home is in a great neighbourhood. Right on border of Castro and Mission. Within 1 km you have Safeway, Whole Foods, Walgreens, the F streetcar line. Within 2 Kim's you have the amazing Castro nieghbourhood with top quality bistros. (Anchor Oyster Bar! Starbelly!).

The home was immaculate; had a wonderful welcoming aura. One almost wished for a rainy day to have the excuse to stay in and snuggle w a book on the choice of comfy chairs/sofa/daybed.

Shared gardens in the rear. We always had it to ourselves.

Owners were prompt with responses. Access was clearly laid out for arrival.

100% recommend here.

Beautiful home with a beautiful yard!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay during our trip to San Francisco. The house was very well equipped on a nice quiet street. It was easy to get around to everything we needed. There is a Whole Foods and a Safeway grocery just a short walk away from the house. Everything was clean and well kept. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Fantastic place!
