Property description

Spacious 1st floor/garden-level studio suite in our *three-story* yr. 2000 home with incredible light, high ceilings, hotel-type kitchen, hosted minibar, close to good eateries and transit, BART and MUNI. Queen-size bed and an AeroBed for an optional third person.

Our bright, roomy, super-clean queen efficiency has a private entrance, private bath, private 20x20 garden, and is certain to provide you just what you need in order to enjoy our lovely City by the Bay!

BART to/from SFO is $9.00 and a five-minute walk here!
Get downtown SF in 20 minutes for $1.95!

Private entrance leading right to the front door of the suite. No stairs.

Our neighborhood, bordering Glen Park and Bernal Heights, has excellent transit, with Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) just a five-minute walk from here. That means you can get right on the train from the airport and get here in around 25 minutes for less than $10!

We have several wonderful restaurants walking distance as well, from Mexican food, to Italian food, to French food, and even three cafes and a frozen yogurt store. A full-service grocery just five minutes walking from here meets the needs of this dynamic and diverse community. Primarily a natural foods market, it is spiced up with specialty groceries, an in-house bread bakery, and has a wonderful selection of made-to-order sandwiches and a gourmet deli case.

In Glen Park Village right next to the market we have a new library with a collection of high-interest books for adults, teens and children, a variety of magazines, newspapers, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs. There is also a small collection of Chinese language and Spanish language materials.

This is the perfect retreat for your next short-term rental in our City by the Bay.

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) makes this neighborhood a wonderful combination of small town atmosphere and big city transportation!

Centered by a commercial area near Diamond and Bosworth Streets, Glen Park has everything that a neighborhood might ask for.

Both Muni and BART pass directly through. Glen Canyon Park is a 70-acre city park, a deep natural canyon with walking paths leading up into Diamond Heights and recreational facilities at its southern entrance.

Glen Park was once named "Little Switzerland" because of the small homes tucked into the hills!

We have a gourmet market nearby, a new library, a taqueria, frozen yogurt shop, breakfast spots (Higher Ground on Chenery for a full breakfast with crepes and Cafe Bello for great coffee and pastries), a French restaurant, a sushi bar, a cheese shop, and many other restaurants.

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: As a native Californian, I am excited to help you discover all of the goings on here in lovely San Francisco and beyond. My favorite places to travel in California are Santa Cruz, Calistoga, Santa Barbara, and Lake Tahoe. When it comes to international travel, I love going to Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe, especially Italy. I am a stay-at-home mother of 10-year-old twins who are in the fourth grade at a school nearby. I try to stay fit by taking walks after dropping them off in the mornings and also go to Zumba at a local YMCA for fun. Our family is always outside enjoying San Francisco's parks and playgrounds of which there are many. Our neighborhood, bordering Glen Park and Bernal Heights, has excellent transit, with Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) just a five-minute walk from here. That means you can get right on the train from the airport and get here in around 25 minutes for less than $10! We have several wonderful restaurants walking distance as well, from Mexican food, to Italian food, to French food, to Japanese food, and even three cafes and a frozen yogurt store.

Primarily a natural foods market, it is spiced up with specialty groceries, an in-house bread bakery, and has a wonderful selection of made-to-order sandwiches and a gourmet deli case. In our little Glen Park Village as it's called, we also have a new library with a collection of high-interest books for adults, teens and children, a variety of magazines, newspapers, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs. There is also a small collection of Chinese language and Spanish language materials. I look forward to welcoming you into our home.
