Modern bedroom & bath centrally located in SoMa (South of Market). Perfect for business or pleasure, accommodations are just a short walk to Moscone conferences, Union Square, Civic Center, Powell St. -- and easy access to BART, Muni, Caltrain.

The space

While centrally located in the bustling SoMa neighborhood, the apartment is on a quiet street with double-paned windows that make for a peaceful environment. The apartment is brand new with hardwood floors and great neighbors.

The apartment features an open living room and kitchen that includes brand new appliances, coffee grinder, french press and espresso machine. Free Wi-Fi throughout the house. And each bedroom comes equipped with a white noise machine and plenty of space to make yourself at home.

Note: We keep the place sparkling clean but can't 100% safeguard against any severe dog allergies. Our doggy roommate will be on vacation as well, but her presence may still be felt (allergy-wise).

In the past we've shared our guest room, but this stay you'll have the whole place to yourself. This includes access to 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, kitchen, in-unit laundry and a living room with a full-sized futon. Perfect for 2-4 people, depending on whether you'd like to take advantage of the futon in the living room!

Since we'll be out of town, we'll leave instructions and keys in a lockbox, as well as a local "in case of emergency"-contact. We provide clean linens, toiletries and a kitchen stocked with appliances and basic necessities. Guests will be responsible for tidying up after themselves during their stay.

SoMa has been a popular location for tech startup offices for quite a while, spurring great new restaurants, lunch spots and bars all around us. More recently, it's become a popular spot to live, with easy access to other vibrant neighborhoods like the Mission, Castro and Potrero Hill.

Walk score is 98. Bike and public transit score is 100. Our neighborhood is flat, so it's easy to walk places. Alternatively, there are a handful of MUNI bus stations within a couple blocks, and you're only a short walk from either the BART or Caltrain. If you're coming from SFO, just take BART to Civic Center Station and walk 4 blocks. It doesn't get much better.

Q: Do you have parking?
A: No. In general we would not recommend renting a car while staying in San Francisco (except for day trips in the area). Parking is expensive and difficult. There is a parking garage within a couple blocks (at 5th & Mission) but daily parking is $32/day, and only if you don't move the car.

Q: Is the neighborhood safe?
A: Yes, but it is what they call "up & coming." If you haven't been to San Francisco before you'll likely be surprised by the sizable homeless population (and the cold weather). We recommend avoid walking down some of the nearby streets at night (mostly 6th Street), but we've never had any problems personally.

Q: Transit from the airport - SFO?
A: BART - public transit train ride takes 1 - 1.5 hours from SFO stop to Civic Center Station. It's a 4-block (10 min) walk to the apartment from there.

Alternatively you can take a taxi from the queue outside your terminal. It's a 20-25 min car ride (more in heavy traffic) and costs about $50.

Laura and David were excellent and welcoming hosts. They communicated often ahead of the stay and made sure they were home when I arrived to help me with the lay out of the apartment and the facilities. They have an adorable dog Chelsea and David was kind enough to keep her engaged with treats to make sure she was comfortable with me there. The room was comfortable and clean and plenty spacious for one person. the bath room was also very clean and comfortable. Overall I had a very comfortable stay and would have no hesitation in recommending KelSoMA.

laura and David were great. Everything was prepared, organized and ready for my stay. They provided very thoughtful extras like a city guide to use as well as extra phone charge chords!! Plus they have a great dog Chelsea who I wanted to sneak home in my suitcase!

Laura and David host in a comfortable, well-attired apartment; while they were out of town when I arrived, they left excellent and detailed instructions on what's around the house, how to operate the various appliances and everything else I could possibly want. They made available just about everything an ad-hoc traveller could need (from toothbrushes to a fan in case of unusual California heat) and booth room and apartment were clean and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay thoroughly and would happily do business with them again next time I'm in San Francisco.

Laura and David were around when we checked in and were very friendly. Chelsea, the puppy, is adorable. The house is beautiful, clean and modern, and in a good location to get around the city. The bed was so comfy, like sleeping on a large pillow! I would happily stay here again.

Laura and David were excellent hosts. They made us feel very welcome and we had a great stay. The room and bathroom were extremely clean and Laura and David provided everything we needed for our stay including toiletries, hair dryer and even a fantastic white noise machine. The apartment was in a great location for our holiday, a short walk to Market Street and public transport. Thank you very much for having us Laura and David!
