Property description

Eu falo português y hablo español tambien.

HELLO, and welcome to my home in San Francisco! My name is Rob and I live in this spacious, 3-bedroom apt smack in the center of SF. For more info about me, check out my profile.

Note that I live here year round, but occasionally I rent out the apt while I'm traveling.

My expansive 2,000 sq ft/ 190 sqm (some have called it oddly large) flat sits alone on the top of a 3 unit building. The location is right in the center of San Francisco, in a cool neighborhood called NOPA. Within a few blocks of my place you'll find great cafes, new restaurants, and quirky bars PLUS lots of parks, including Alamo Square, the Panhandle and Golden Gate Park (all within 10 min walk).

-- THE APARTMENT --
* 2 BR / 2 Full Baths with tubs and showers
* PLUS - two high quality inflatable mattresses
* High ceilings and beautiful white oak hardwood floors throughout
* Huge 400 sqft master bedroom with queen bed, 6' X 8' walk-in closet, a separate sitting area with couch, and views of Buenva Vista park and twin peaks
* Large 2nd bedroom with queen bed and 4' X 6' walk-in closet
* Huge living room / dinning room with 6 bay windows affording tons of natural light and views of classic victorian buildings
* New HE washing machine and gas heated dryer
* Potential for one parking space in garage (check with me first)
* Patio/garden terrace with 2 BBQ grills

-- THE KITCHEN --
* The kitchen is fully stocked (dishes, silverware, glasses, etc)
* Gourmet stainless steel cookware and cutlery
* Gas range/oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and Cuisinart food processor
* Eat-in breakfast nook perfect for 2 - 3

-- APT LAYOUT --
The apt is very expansive, affording privacy even for big groups. In the rear half of the apt is the master bedroom, the 1st bath and separate laundry room. In the front half sits the kitchen, the 2nd bedroom, 2nd bath and the massive living room/ dining room.

-- THE LOCATION --
* Very central, accessible location at Golden Gate Ave and Baker St. Get to anywhere in the city for less than $15 using Uber or Lyft (ride sharing apps)
* Quiet residential street with a good mix of young families and singles
* 4 blocks from the famous seven Painted Ladies and Alamo Square park
* 5 blocks from the Panhandle of Golden Gate park
* Great of bars, restaurants and cafes all within an easy walk
* Seven (7) bus lines all within 5 blocks or less, including the MUNI 5, 21, 22, 24, 31, 38 and 43, providing access to virtually all of SF by bus.

-- WHY NOPA --
I love the NOPA/Alamo Square neighborhood because of its central location and its easy-going vibe. It has a great mix of young families, hipsters and professionals, and it's quite safe. I also love seeing new retail (BiRite!), restaurants and bars open up all the time here. The area is still in the midst of a great renaissance!

Great public transportation options are here as well, with several bus routes within 5 blocks or less, including the 5, 21, 22, 24, 31, 38 and 43 MUNI lines (yes, 7 different bus lines!). These can take you virtually to any part of the city.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

There are an unlimited number of things to do in San Francisco, but I love the music scene and the access to the great outdoors!

FOR MUSIC -- If you're a live music fan, the world famous Fillmore Auditorium is just a 10 minute walk downhill, or you can go to The Independent, a mere 5 blocks away for some of the best independent music in San Francisco. Also, the Symphony, Ballet and Opera houses are a quick 10 minute bus ride on the #21 MUNI bus.

FOR EXERCISE -- Golden Gate Park is just FIVE blocks away, and is the perfect place for running, biking, walking, etc. Plus, there are dozens of yoga and Pilates studios within an easy walk. And, an excellent lap swimming pool and gym is located just a few blocks at The Koret Center. A morning/weekend pass there costs only $78 for a 15 visits.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My name is Rob and I am an explorer at heart. I've lived all over the US, (NY, Connecticut, Alabama, Georgia, DC, Virginia, Michigan), but have made my home in San Francisco for many years. I'm a social guy, love hanging out with friends, and am fortunate to have traveled and lived in many diverse places. I have a real passion for budget travel, and I've explored many parts of Asia, Europe and Latin America, and actually spent a couple of years living in Brazil (which by the way has totally killed my spoken Spanish, but I do still understand the language). Besides travel, my other passions include music, food, international affairs and generally being outside. My ideal guests are people who are conscientious, respectful and clean. I love it when people stay at my place and treat it as if it were there own home. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to hosting and helping you make the most of your time in San Francisco.

Why the Owner Chose North of the Panhandle, San Francisco, CA, USA:
I love the NOPA/Alamo Square neighborhood because of its central location and its easy-going vibe. It has a great mix of young families, hipsters and professionals, and it's quite safe. I also love seeing new retail (BiRite!), restaurants and bars open up all the time here. The area is in the midst of a great renaissance!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I want all my guests to have an amazing experience in San Francisco. So in addition to the great peace and comfort you will enjoy in my flat, I am here to help make your trip memorable with suggested itineraries and locals-only tips for making the most of your vacation -- especially should you share my passion for music! Also, since I travel a lot, I have a pair of property managers who live next door should you ever need anything during your stay.
