Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

bedroom, sitting room, bathroom. Sleeps 3

On the ground floor of a house on a quiet cul-de-sac in a good, safe neighborhood in the geographical center of The City. Private entrance. The bedroom has a queen bed. The (larger) sitting room has a single bed, which looks sort of like a sofa, as well as a real sofa. Both rooms look out at the garden. Private bath with shower. WiFi. Wood floors. Excellent bus connections. Garage available: $15 a night.. Easy walk to Golden Gate Park. Easy walk to three foodie destinations: Arsicault (best croissants in the country); Arguello Market (best sandwich—turkey—in the city); Hong Kong Lounge II (dim sum as good as there). Also nearby: a classic diner, many coffee shops and restaurants, post office, pharmacy, banks, and FedEx. Warning: no TV; no stove (there is a microwave and mini-fridge and electric kettle). My theory is to give you good value on lodging so you can enjoy our very expensive city.

Great Location, Cozy Space

  • 4 of 5

This was a really sweet little space with two sleeping spaces in a really safe neighborhood. Being able to park in the garage for $15.00 a night was a big plus. We walked to several great spots to eat and the bus into town is within easy walking distance as well. This was within ten minutes of UCSF and Sutter Pacific Memorial for doctor's appointments.

Great location. No real kitchen.

  • 3 of 5

This is a two room ground floor space. It was cold and a bit musty even though it was very clean. There is not a real kitchen but great location with lots of good restaurants in waking distance. Convenient to The park and transportation.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you didn't let me know you were cold and musty. I had urged you to contact me with any problems, so I could do my best to solve them. I would have suggested you turn on the space heaters, one in each room. And use the electric towel rack, which would have kept your towels dry and toasty. And of course if you had read my description, you would have known that there was no kitchen stove.
