SF is one of most walkable cities in US, just like european cities. Therefore, I don't suggest you to drive in SF. If you do have a car, free street parking has 2 hours limit in the daytime from Monday to Friday. Unlimited in the evening and on weekend but can be competitive. There are parking lots nearby for $10-$20 daily parking. If you do need a car, there are quite a few zip car/car rental centers within walking distance.
This neighborhood also has good access to freeway 101 and 280 for you to go to Silicon Valley. Many big high tech companies have shuttle stops nearby, like (website hidden), Apple, (website hidden)Lab126, Genentech, etc.
This neighborhood has best weather in SF as well. Especially in summer, more than half of SF is often covered by thick fog, this neighborhood is still sunny. On beautiful weather day, do some people watching and enjoy fabulous SF.

Just step out of door, within a few blocks in all directions, you will find tons of restaurants, bars, cafe, gallery, indie theater and other interesting spots, like Mission Beach Cafe, Woodhouse Fish Company, Chow, Little Star Pizza, FourBarrel Coffee, Asta Yoga, Box Dog Bikes, Pauline's pizza, KRUA Thai, Elixir, Andalu, Tokyo gogo, Bi-Rite, Tartine, US Mint, Mission SF De Asis, SF Armory, foodie street Valencia, people beach Dolores park ...........

My family of 5 (my mother, my husband, my 4 year old, and my infant) all stayed at Hao's apartment in early October. It was fantastic. I'll get the minor inconveniences out of the way first: we had to pick up the keys from his aunt in an entirely different neighborhood (thankfully, we used to live here, so the driving was painful only because of traffic, not because we didn't know how to go). Also, our AT&T cell phones had almost no reception in the apartment.
The location is spectacular: we walked to our favorite grocery store in the world (Rainbow) so we could cook in the kitchen (which was not spectacularly but adequately stocked with cooking equipment), a fantastic bakery (Tartine), a fantastic playground (Dolores Park), more restaurants than you could shake a stick at, and abundant mass transit lines.
The apartment was clean, tidy, attractive, had great natural light, and allowed us to sleep comfortably (baby in the closet, 4 year old on the futon at the foot of our bed) and entertain our friends when they came to visit us. I feared the neighbors might get annoyed by the sound of occasionally rambunctious children, but no one ever approached us. The humongous TV with every video-streaming service known to man was of particular use with the kids. Wifi was easy access. Elevator has handy with luggage and stroller. And it even had a back patio which we all loved. Some basic foods (ground coffee, cold cereal, OJ, milk) were already stocked, which made the first day easier. As for the price, not only was it cheaper than the 2 hotel rooms we otherwise would have had to rent, all the conveniences of home made the hotel-vs-apt. question no-brainer!
The apartment was everything as described, was very clean and comfortable. Location was fabulous. Hao was very helpful with questions. Would love to come back, maybe next year same time. Thanks Hao.
I didn't get a chance to meet Hao in person, but we thoroughly enjoyed his apartment in San Francisco. The location was perfect to explore the Mission area, which turned out to be one of our favorite parts of the city! The apartment was clean, spacious, secure and well looked after, and Hao was easy to communicate with. I have no hesitations recommending Hao and his apartment to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay in SF.
Great apartment. Everything was as described. Great location. We had a wonderful stay at Hao's apartment.Thank you Hao.
My sons and I spent 4 nights at Hao's apartment and we were very comfortable indeed. The apartment is well-furnished and contains all the equipment and accessories that anyone might need. The location is excellent - making it very easy to access public transport. The proximity to Market Street is particularly convenient as we could take the tram (the tram stop only being a few minutes walk from the apartment), and we could go all the way to Pier 39 for $2 each! If we are ever lucky enough to visit SF again we'll look out for this apartment again.
Hao was an awesome host during our stay. The appartment is perfect, quite, big and very well located. Highly recommended!!
the stay at Hao's Apartment in San Francisco was really nice. The Apartment is a big beautiful place and offers everthing you'll Need.
Hao himself was also a helpful Person. We have been in contact till our stay in San Francisco.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
