Property type apartment

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Our garden unit was completely remodeled in the summer of 2011. It has a full kitchen with a five burner gas Bosch cook-top and combination microwave, convection, vent just above the cook-top. The refrigerator/freezer has a smaller profile to accommodate kitchen layout but is more than you’ll need for a few days or even a month. The kitchen is fully stocked with a full set of Calphalon stainless pans, a full set of knives and all the dishes and glasses you’d need to host a small dinner party in the garden on your visit.

The living room has a brand new 32 inch flat screened HDTV with a full stereo and DVD player. The TV has premium Comcast service including Starz if curling up on the couch and watching a movie is your way of relaxing after a hectic day.

The bedroom has a queen bed and the closet is large enough to accommodate a few wardrobes. The bedding will be changed weekly as part of the weekly cleaning fee if you are staying longer than one week.

The bathroom has a beautiful glass tile shower and granite counter tops. Towels will be laundered at the end of the week, but fresh towels can be traded out during the week if desired.

In the kitchen area, opposite the work area, is a wall mounted desk with a wireless router and secure WIFI network just for the unit. You can work late at night or just stay in touch while you are traveling. There is no printer in the unit, but if you need access to a fax machine or a printer that can be arranged with the owner as she has a home office on the property.

This unit has been designed to be the ideal home away from home for the frequent business traveler to SF, but it is also great for the vacationing tourist.

One of the things that makes this property ideal is the location. We are on Bush Street between Baker and Broderick streets. It is extremely easy to get downtown, out to the ocean or to any of the major fun places in SF via public transportation or you can park on the street with a temporary parking permit. Two blocks to the north is California Street and the #1 MUNI line runs E/W and three blocks to the south is Geary Blvd and the #38 MUNI line runs E/W there too. They connect to main lines running all over the city and they both have express or limited lines that run during high commute times and make getting downtown very quick.

It is also located within walking distance to Fillmore and Sacramento Streets. Both with an ample variety of shopping, restaurants, movie theaters and live music venues like the historic Fillmore. There are also beautiful walks you can take from the unit through the mansions of Pacific Heights into the woods of the Presidio and out to the Golden Gate bridge. Just ask and we’ll map it out for you.

The garden is lovely and very protected between the main building and the small Victorian cottage on the back of the property. It is ideal for enjoying your coffee in the morning during the warmer months.

We love pets, but do have strict rules about use of the garden so that it is always enjoyable and lush for everyone.

We live on the property and can be available to assist you in stocking the fridge prior to your stay so that you can 'hit the ground running' or in understanding the logistics for getting around town.

About Cecilia Lynch

We live on the property.

Cecilia Lynch purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Cecilia Lynch chose Lower Pacific Heights

This unit is located off the garden, so it is quiet - away from the street. It is also very well positioned for taking advantage of the public bus system and getting you around town like a local.

Perfect for a San Francisco visit!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, welcoming, comfortable, clean, quiet. Everything needed for a wonderful weekend, including a garden for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Loved the walkable neighborhood with nearby shops and parks. Couldn't have asked for more!

Perfect for San Francisco visit!

  • 4 of 5

This garden apartment located in Pacific Heights was the perfect location for first time visitors to the San Francisco area. Cecil was incredibly easy to work with and responded quickly to our emails. When we arrived, the area was experiencing a "Pineapple Express" which meant over 3 inches of rain. Cecil was gracious enough to meet us and allowed us to walk through her garage so that we weren't drenched. The apartment was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was clean as well as stocked with pots, plates, coffee maker, some basic condiments and even picnic supplies that we used when we went up to Muir Woods. The apartment was within walking distance to Trader Joe's, a Target, Starbucks and a few other shops but also very convenient to the public transportation system which we used throughout our stay. Finding a place to park our vehicle was easy and since it was a Friday afternoon arrival we didn't need to move our car until we left on Tuesday. We appreciated the bookshelf filled with many books including travel books pertaining to the area. As another guest referred to the firm bed, we would have to agree that the bed was very firm; however, it did not keep us awake. We were able to sleep well. Another item to note is the fact that this apartment is on the ground floor below other peoples homes. Consequently, we were able to hear people walking around. This did not bother us but, if that would bother you, then this might not be the place for you. We highly recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to stay again if we returned to the area. Thank you Cecil for being a wonderful hostess!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, roomy unit in Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood. The unit is nicely equipped, comfortable and quiet. Cecilia is great to deal with and very prompt returning emails and phone calls. She was very helpful in planning our trip and parking. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and we used it to prepare coffee, breakfast and leftovers from our dinners out. The bed was too firm for us, so I really give this unit 4.5 out of 5 and that is the only reason. A memory foam topper or feather bed might make it more comfortable. The rate is great for this area and it is easy to get anywhere in the city with public transportation from this location. Thanks for a great stay!

Awesome! This is a fantastic property.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property! We arrived very late into San Francisco and the owner was easy to work with for our late arrival. The apartment is tucked on the backside of the home and has the prettiest garden courtyard. It is super quiet, in fact we laughed because we almost couldn’t sleep the first night due to the lack of city noise. This is great for 1-2 people.

The bed was very firm, but surprisingly still comfortable.

There is a wonderful little kitchen and living area. However we spent so much time out and about we did not even get to use them. If your traveling for work or planning Just hanging out, this property would be great for that as well.

We had a rental car and were able to always find street parking very close. If your going to leave a car parked during the day, you’ll need to purchase parking permits (the property owner has them available), but from 4pm till 8am We parked with no issues.

The property owner was easily reached and responded quickly to questions.

We will definitely use this again on a return trip!

Spacious and clean. Everything you need for your stay is available.

  • 4 of 5

When staying there I recommend California St for cafes and restaurants. Fillmore street isn't the cleanest. All tourist information can be found down at Fishermans Wharf.

Car: not necessary

We are located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood; just a few block from the Fillmore Street shopping district and the Laurel Village shopping district. Our location is ideal for using public transportation as there three main Muni bus lines within 3 blocks of our house. If you need your car, we can help you secure residential parking permits to park during the day on the street.
