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 full-sized (double) 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. WiFi. Wood floors. Excellent bus connections. Garage available. 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.

Simple but nice appartment at a good area of San Francisco

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice relaxed stay at Mr. Junkers place. The rooms were nice, the bathroom was OK but the kitchen area was very small and basic. The creaking floor was something we could not get used too. Mr. Junker was very nice, friendly and supportive and provided great instructions at arrival. Overal a good experience

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Howard was very responsive from booking to departure. Everything was as described. He left a note to acquaint us with the unit and even left a hand drawn map of some restaurants and services nearby. Would recommend for anyone looking to stay in a more residential area still accessible to central attractions.

Simple but spacious accommodation in a quiet neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for all, Howard.

We enjoyd the quiet athmospere and the walkable distances to Golden Gate Park, bus station, restaurants and pubs. It was a perfect place for us 3 people who want to spend most of their time out and about exploring the city. It was also very convenient to park our car in the garage. We only saw Howard briefly but he was polite and helpful. Arriving/leaving was very easy and efficient and he responded quickly to all questions.
