Comfy little flat close to Ocean Beach

  • 5 of 5

Comfy little flat close to Ocean Beach (between M & N). Plenty of space for 4, with everything we needed for bedding, bathroom, and kitchen. Easy street parking. Also, all electric and entertainment equipment was easy and convenient. We love the beach vibe (but some might find it a bit run down on the outside). We would book again!

Owner's Response: Our home is directly across from the beach, which means it is subject to wind, sand, salt air, rain and all the other gifts of nature that a beach location brings. Our home has stood where it is for over a hundred years and despite our best efforts, is naturally weathered and areas that are not shingled require constant painting and re painting. We hope that people appreciate our location, its unique ambience and the universally praised, well maintained garden unit we offer. We are proud to offer a respite from the urban city environment.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Diane & Jon were excellent, gracious host & hostess. Diane gave us a lift (instead of using Lyft) to our destination, & Jon helped put together a new office chair. The apt. was very comfortable and cozy; great location across from the ocean. We stayed for nearly a month, so had good feeling for our digs. We highly recommend this apt. for a short or long stay.

Great location across from the beach and close to Golden Gate Park

Owner is very friendly and responds to questions quickly. Great place if you have pets as there is a nice yard for them. Overall, good place to stay when you are in San Fran.

Great place

Apartment is perfect for us. Clean, comfortable, roomy, and in a quiet location. We plan on continuing to stay there on all of our future visits to San Francisco.

great stay in a surfer-centric neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely tucked-away off Great Highway, a short walk from the beach. The Outer Sunset has a vibe all its own and Diane and Jon made us feel very welcome here. Very workable for a couple + guest, or another couple if you're already comfortable and/or have traveled together before. Comfy kitchen/dining and a very nice living space, quiet and away from the street sounds. We definitely hope to stay again!

Nice little place.

  • 4 of 5

Nice and clean little place in a quiet residential area near ocean. Far from touristy activities but choose it like that.

Master bedroom a little bit hard but fine enough for a couple days.

Had a great time.
