Quiet Garden Studio Located In The Heart Of The Mission

Bedrooms Studio
Space 250 sq ft
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 30 nights


About the property

250 Sq Ft/25 Sq Mt Private Garden Studio Sleeps 1 Total

Due to issues with the VRBO/HomeAway system, the month of March is available for less than 30 nights at $105 week night/$115 weekends; 3 night minimum.

Please disregard the 30 night minimum for that period of time and contact me directly through the system for availability.

Our little garden studio, located on the ground level, is it's own space , used solely for travelers. While it is small at + 250 sq feet, it's meticulously clean.

It has a kitchenette (micro, coffee maker, small fridge, toaster, plates, etc.) and is completely stocked with everything you will need . High Speed internet or WIFI included and there is a TV with DVD (sorry, no cable).

Full mattress plus additional seating. There is a private bathroom.

The space is about 250 sq (25 m2) feet and is best for one person here for work, school, internship.

Heat is on an automatic timer (am/pm) and is controlled by the upstairs unit. It gets chilly in the winter months so plan accordingly.

We do allow pets. Please see more information under house rules.

Sorry there is no off street parking and parking is tight throughout SF. There is plenty of nearby public transportation as we are near the 24th street BART and several bus lines. I suggest not having a car if you rent this unit.

Non smokers. No one other than those on the reservation may be on the property at any given time. Failure to abide by this and the non smokers rule, will sacrifice your entire deposit. 25 or older preferred.

About Lucia

We moved here from the midwest 20 years ago. We are constantly renovating our garden unit to make it better and better and to never let it get old or dungy.

I pride myself on detailed information and cleanliness.

Lucia purchased this studio in 1998

Why Lucia chose Mission District

We have a great location in a neighborhood that has been completely transitioned in the last 5 years. We've lived here during the pre-transitioned phase and loved it then.

You are literally in the hottest neighborhood in San enough to the touristy areas while far enough to avoid tourists. It's a lively hood with so many new shops, restarants, bars, deli's, etc. that have moved in within the last 4 years.

What makes this studio unique

Best walk-able location in the city with flat streets; 10 min walk to 24th street bart, downtown in 20 minutes, close to night life, shopping, food and a hop skip and a jump to the freeway.

You live like a local in that you are renting an apartment. If you need hotel level accommodations or see

Private, clean and organized.

  • 5 of 5

Private, clean and organized. A perfect studio for anyone staying in SF. Not luxurious but certainly clean and decent. The only minor complaint would be the squeaky bed. Other than that, very nice.

Great location and lovely studio

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I traveled to San Fran for the first time to discover the city and Lucia's studio was very convenient for our short trip. The bathroom is lovely, clean and the kitchen is simple but it is all your need for a short visit. The bed is a bit squeaky (foldable bed) but totally comfy. Lucia was professional in her correspondence by email and was replying in a timely manner. We didn't get the chance to meet Lucia in person as she was away that week but she makes the self check in/out process straight forward as house rules are very clear.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we were happy with this studio apartment. There was no toilet paper the first day and the bed was uncomfortable and squeaky. Other than that, everything was great! It's close to the BART station and lots of great restaurants. It was a nice, private area with a very nice bathroom/shower, fridge, and microwave for all our leftovers.

Wonderfully private room!

  • 4 of 5

We liked staying at Lucia's VRBO. It was very clean, private, quiet (we were rarely there), and cozy. The bed was average in comfort but no complaints from us for the price. She was great to communicate with as well!
