Garden Apt., center of The City

Bedrooms 2
Space 450 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
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 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. Nearby: a classic diner, a great deli, 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 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.

Great location!

My friends and I had a pleasant stay at this apartment. We liked the fact that many things were within walking distance of or a short car ride away from this apartment.

Convenient location

  • 3 of 5

Thanks for a pleasant stay Howard.

The apartment is located in a quiet residential area within walking distance of Golden Gate Park and the museums there, and a few blocks away there is a direct bus to the city center which runs quite often.

It's a perfect place for 1-3 people who want to spend most of their time out and about exploring the city.

was a bit dumpy-but seemed like a safe area within a few blocks of some restaurants

  • 3 of 5

After we had turned in for the night, we locked the door only to find out that there was a pane of glass missing from the door.

Even though there was another entrance to the apt, we could not lock our area.

I was expecting somewhat of a hotel experience and I was a bit disappointed that there was no TV.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you didn't mention your fear about the the missing pane, because I could have reassured you. I took the pane out because guests sometimes locked themselves out. In any case, you were inside my house, in a self-contained unit protected by locked exterior doors. Do you usually lock the bedrooms in your own house for safety? As for no TV, I proudly state that in the description you might have read, just as you might have looked at the photos that accurately describe the dumpiness of my place. Next time, you're welcome to stay downtown in a fancy, pricey hotel that would more elegantly accommodate your wife AND daughter.
