NOTE: You will climb a narrow staircase to the top/3rd floor of this flat so for those who have stayed in older French style buildings with stairs, you will feel right at home!
There is a grocery store/corner market conveniently located across the street, H&W Market. It opens at 830am and closes late on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays. It has coffee and a very good deli with a variety of fresh, made-to-order sandwiches. Other deli items include lasagna, tamales, cheeses, macaroni & potato salads, etc.... for those late night hunger pains.
Up the street to your right as you leave the building, on Fillmore Street is a local coffee shop, Alamo Square Cafe has plenty of breakfast goodies and good coffee to choose from.
Also nearby is a mini mall that has a large supermarket, SAFEWAY... south of the apt (left on Webster St when you leave the building) just about a half a mile down the road.
There is an additional fee if you wish to have daily towel and daily linen service by our housekeeper/host. There is a coin-operated laundromat conveniently located at the corner from the apartment with last wash 75 minutes before closing. Wash & Fold service is also provided here which you pay by the pound with a 24-48hr turn-around time. Hours of operation are:
We are centrally located in the heart of SF. Alamo Square / Hayes Valley is one of the most vibrant and revitalized neighborhoods in San Francisco. It includes wine bars, cafes, five-star restaurants, high-end boutiques, clubs, bars, close to movie theaters, Civic Center/City Hall, museums, the symphony & the Opera House and much more. Public transportation is very convenient with a bus line right across the street if you want to head downtown (21 Hayes). The 5 Fulton line is just 2 blocks away.
You can find some of the best coffee and foods in this part of the city and much more in the nearby districts. Also within 1 mile walking distance is the Fillmore District which offers the same with a handful of jazz clubs to enjoy. You have the Painted Ladies to the right and City Hall to the left, Western Addition behind you and the Lower Haight in front of you. Great spot to be!
I suggest to use public transportation. The 21 HAYES is right outside of our apartment! This convenient bus line will take you directly downtown and connects onto other bus lines that will bring you to other neighborhoods throughout the city. Another bus line close by is the 5 FULTON which is only 2 blocks south of us (behind the apt). It's only a 10 minute walk to Van Ness MUNI station, and 15 minute walk to Civic Center MUNI station for BART and other MUNI lines.
MUNI is an integral part of public transit in our city, operating year round and connecting with regional transportation services, such as BART, Caltrain, SamTrans, and AC Transit.
ADULT FARE: $2.25
CHILDREN: $.75c (ages 5 - 17yrs)
The city's lone subway tube is called MUNI Metro; also 3 cable car lines, and a heritage streetcar line known as the F Market & Wharves. MUNI shares 4 metro stations with BART. Travelers can connect onto San Francisco & Oakland International Airports via BART.
Convenient for driving. We do not have a garage. Parking is very expensive here in SF!! FREE parking can be found on our residential streets nearby. Metered parking are on most business areas. Located just off highways 101, 280, and 80. VERY EASY ACCESS to the freeway and only 2 mins away from our apt which leads you right to Oakland Airport and the SF International Airport.
You can explore many nearby neighborhoods by walking a mile or two in every direction from the apt.
Other Things to Note:
This building still has the original narrow staircase from the 1900's. The spiral staircase was removed so you can get through with your suitcases!
We have a small water heater so it's best to take short, quick showers in order to have enough hot water to go around for a large group...especially since we are experiencing a drought/water shortage in CA.
The main closet is 3/4 full of the owner's personal belongings and clothing. You may hang some of your clothes there if you wish or hang your clothes on the suit rack provided or on the rack in the second bedroom.
There will be an additional fee for laundry service if you want more towels other than what was provided and/or linen service. Please be considerate of our water shortage/drought in CA.
There is a key/knob for the skylight windows in the island drawer if you wish to open and/or close them. You can open the back door to the deck to catch a gentle breeze.
