Property description

MAX 5 PEOPLE * THANK YOU! Welcome to my home! Studio is available for a 6 month lease minimum with no exceptions. The longer the lease request the better!

Price INCLUDES water, garbage, high speed internet, and utilities (within reason)! Everyone renter has been very respectful of the water and utilities and we have records of regular rates over the years. Given that the rates are within 10% of the normal range there will be no additional charge. If the usage stays over after 1 month warning the renter agrees to pay the difference.

Amazing location
Centrally located between the Moscone center and the Yerba Buena center for the arts (7-10 minute walk), the SF Giant's AT&T Park (12-15 minute walk), the China Basin Waterfront (15-20 minute walk) and the Westfield Mall (5-8 minute walk), all within a 5 block radius. A 20 minute scenic walk along the Embarcadero's famous waterfront also gets you to the historic ferry building where local, organic produce and delicious fare are sold and weekly farmers' markets are held.

Nightlife & restaurants
Dozen's of renowned restaurants, bars and clubs are all just minutes away as is world-class shopping in union square. Top restaurants such as Chez Spencer, Oola and Lulu's are all within a one block radius.

Public transportation
Including the Muni Light Rail, bus system and zipcar are within a 3 block radius. Cabs can be hailed on the street or booked in advance. You can call the cab dispatcher directly or try and application like taxi magic.
Uber (car service) is also an option.

Parking
There is also 2 hour free street parking and/or metered parking on 5th street. Please note that there is no parking available on-site. There is a parking garage on 5th and Mission for overnight parking.

HOMELESS
Yes, there are homeless in SOMA (South of Market Street) as well as other parts of SF. The homeless are pretty harmless. They usually will not engage in conversation with you while you walk by. It is hard to see the homeless sometimes. It has gotten much better in the last 15 years I have lived in my home that you will be renting. Seeing homeless people in reality is a part of living or staying in SOMA and experiencing San Francisco. I do not give them money personally but I do say hello and acknowledge them with goodwill in my heart. This seems to be well received. I have had my nieces and nephews stay with me and walk to Union Square. There have been hundreds of guests with babies and children over the years without any problems. Welcome to SOMA San Francisco. It could be helpful to know that apartments on this block can sell for a million dollars, so you are in good company with well educated professionals. I welcome you into my home and have done my best to paint the scene so you can make an educated decision about your stay.

NO SMOKING
This means any smoking inside the home or common areas in the building as well as leaning out the window and smoking. In the event that smoke is detected the full deposit will be withheld. Thank you!

DID YOU KNOW?
Walkability rating in SOMA is 97% = Walkers Paradise.
Due to the schedule for deep cleaning between each guest early check-in and late check-out is not an option for guests or bags.
Check out the CUSTOM GUIDEBOOK we created with the best local spots near the studio. If you find any new gems please let me know and I will add them.

P.S. If the price seems a bit steep for such a small space, welcome to SF! But honestly, its hard to find a place in the city that is so easily accessible and convenient, car or no car. It's all about location, location, location!

Arguably the most exciting neighborhood in SF, with new restaurants and bars popping up weekly. This is the apartment you want to stay in when you come to San Francisco!

Owner info

About the owner: I enjoy speaking foreign languages, helping others to be their best, exercise, decorating, spending time with my family and travel. I grew up visiting my family in Norway during the summers and have duel citizenship with Norway. Thankfully my relatives enjoy visiting often. I hope to be able to visit them more in 2014. The more guests I have the easier it will be to make that a reality :) SO stay at my place!! I love to share my home with vacation rental guests. I have met so many kind and thoughtful people from all over the world. I grew up traveling frequently so now hosting brings the world to my door. YAY! It brings me great joy to have the opportunity to open my cherished home, and to share it with others. They can enjoy the space I have created and get to know San Francisco from the South of Market (SOMA) perspective. Right now SOMA really is the pulse of the city of San Francisco with all of the new restaurants, start ups, and wine bars. Not to mention SOMA is central to San Francisco highlights such as: Union Square, the Ball Park, the Cable Car ride, Westfield Mall and Market Street. It's even better to be one block from the Moscone Center, considering many of my guests are attending conferences during their stay! It is a pleasure to be able to offer everything at your fingers tips just steps away from my home and your home away from home. I have had a photography business for over 14 years where I support women to be their best. It is an honor and privilege to have photographed over 2,500 exceptional and inspirational women. As well as incredibly fun and heartwarming. This coming semester I am studying Anatomy! I hope to have the chance to host you here in the loft or studio. Although I am not there during guests stay's I am easily reached to answer any questions. :)
