Built in early 1920s and newly remodeled in 2009, Outer Richmond Bed & Breakfast is a traditional Victorian style, 3-story single family house with classic features, conveniently located in the heart of Richmond districts. The geographic features of the Home are 10 minutes walking distance to the north of worldly famous Golden Gate Park and one of the 49 miles scenic areas in San Francisco.
The B&B facility is an independent unit with a private entrance and is filled with delightful California sunlight, or “romantic” sea fog, depending on the unique microclimate forecast. The B&B unit consists of a huge living room with a classic fireplace, a dining area, a complete kitchen, and two large and bright bedrooms w/ individual bathrooms, and one of the bedrooms attached to a size-able balcony. Daily continental breakfast is provided between 6am and 9am, coffee/tea/snacks/light refreshment/WiFi are available throughout the day.
The neighborhood reflects an unique cultural diverse population in San Francisco, far beyond the remaining city. Russian supermarkets, Italian restaurants, newly acquired Chinatown (Clement Street), many Asian ethnic (Korea, Singapore, Thai, Japanese, Burma, Vietnamese) and authentic cuisines and delicacies, Irish bakery and pubs are all spread out within a stretch of 1 to 2 miles. Don't be surprised if you can hear 5 different languages within a block or two of distance. Meanwhile, this area sustains a strong family oriented atmosphere with multiple religious churches and temples, and daycare centers and grade schools and senior centers.
There are street parking in the areas. The alternate option of transportation tool is Muni, a city public transportation system promised riders not to walk more than a mile to your destination, that is only 20 minutes to SF downtown, Union Square, Cable Car and many tourist points. As mentioned, the Richmond area being one of most enduring marketing ploys is the historical sightseeing spot itself.
Non-smoking, no pet, no on-premise parking
The apartment was so lovely and comfortable; it felt nice to come home to at the end of a long day exploring. There was breakfast and fruit, coffee and tea, and the area was nice and peaceful. It felt like a safe neighborhood. We rented a car, so I can't say anything about public transportation, but we took a cab to more of the downtown area and it wasn't that expensive. I also loved being right by Golden Gate Park, as well as a street with restaurants and groceries and all. And of course, Andrea was so welcoming and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
Andrea was a great host, providing a playpen for our daughter and also bringing up some toys for her to play with, which went above and beyond our expectations. There was a good variety of food provided for breakfasts and snacks, and Andrea would ask if there were any specifics we'd like her to purchase.
The house is less than 2 blocks from a main road where it is very easy to catch the bus, there are several markets and many restaurants nearby.
Our only disappointment was that the king bed turned out to be two twin beds pushed together with another mattress overtop, and it wasn't overly comfortable. I would not have opted for this room if I had been aware of the type of bed.
Great location, apartment and host.
It's run a bit like a B&B, with food available in the kitchen for guests.
Would come back and recommend to others.
Very nice and quiet. Andrea helped us with parking a lot. She is a great host! Highly recommend it.
Andrea was a fantastic host. Anyone living in or around SF knows that parking usually a problem, but Andrea helped us with this and it wasn't a problem at all! The home was very clean and comfortable, we really enjoyed our stay.
The description of the place and the pictures were accurate. The neighborhood is very pleasant, many restaurants and stores at walking distance. All-in-all it was an excellent experience.
