Buena Vista area is a quiet community that surrounds one of most beautiful parks in the city. Apartment is 1/2 block from Buena Vista Park.
Castro Street as well as Haight Street are a couple of blocks away on opposite directions. Both have different vibes and plenty of restaurant establishments and grocery stores.
3-block walk to/from Duboce Muni train (public transportation). San Francisco uphills can be a challenge (or invigorating) for guests.
Parking for guest vehicles is a challenge in SF, but options are available for us:
-Street parking has 2-hour limits. Evenings are not restricted. Always review parking rule signs.
-Parking around Buena Vista Park is available without hourly constraints, except for street cleaning times. Buena Vista Park is 1/2 block from our space. Highly recommended by other guests.
-My driveway is only option if you're in a pinch. Please note, that I have to get in and out of garage which requires coordination of moving vehicles.
Residential neighborhood. No loudness after hours (10pm). NO SMOKING.
Host sent me a message asking me if I had special needs, which was nice of her. Thr place was clean and loved the little private garden at back.
We stayed in Annabelle's garden studio for three days I'm April. The studio is perfect for a couple. We took advantage of the full-size washer and dryer. Annabelle helped us with the TV and the thermostat when we had trouble. She came downstairs to help within about five minutes of my sending her a note.
We also enjoyed relaxing in the back yard and looking out the back window at a phenomenal view.
The pictures are spot on. This is a well-kept, clean unit with all the comforts of home. And compared to San Francisco hotel prices, it is a pretty good deal too.
A beautifully decorated and well-appointed space in a wonderful neighborhood that epitomizes San Francisco. For a basement apartment it has an enormous amount of light while not sacrificing privacy. Parking was super convenient and free too.
This little gem was really just as described with big doors that open on to such a pleasant garden. Annabelle made it incredibly easy for us to enjoy our stay, offering help when needed quickly (someplace to store our bike) but letting us be otherwise. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom really lovely-- the perfect place for one, or a couple. The neighborhood, which I'd never really been to in spite of spending a lot of time in SF, is beautiful with vistas for days.
A great neighbourhood and guaranteed to keep you fit ! lovely traditional San Francisco with views to die for round every corner. Annabelle was a great host and everything was planned and arranged brilliantly. Easy communication and recommendations when needed (great deli / market just down the road at Fratelli!) - the unit is exactly as described and pictured with a great coffee machine, comfortable bed and lovely shower / bathroom with plentiful supply of towels etc and the private garden is a huge bonus ! Highly recommended !
This was our first experience with an Airbnb, and what an experience! Annabelle was a very accommodating host, and always available to answer questions leading up to, and including our visit, while respecting our privacy. She was a perfect host! The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The private garden is very peaceful and quiet. The view of the city is magnificent from here, as it is perched near the top of one of SF's many hills. It is located in a very quiet and safe neighborhood, within walking distance of three parks, as well as the Haight, Dubose Triangle, and the Castro neighborhoods. We were able to easily walk to our favorite local SF shops, restaurants and bars. It is also a very convenient location if you arrive by public transportation, (from SFO, take the Bart to Civic Ctr, then switch to the Muni N line, and get off at Dubose and Noe, then walk the last few blocks. Although those last couple of blocks are pretty steep, and I recommend Taxi or Uber if you have large suitcases on arrival. There is also a bus stop very nearby) Annabelle supplied us with everything we could possibly need, including a Keurig with a large selection of K-cups. The free wifi is super fast with a great signal in the garden. We travel to SF at least 2 or 3 times a year, and I believe I have found my home away from home!
Welcome to San Francisco and my Buena Vista Terrace suite!
My personalized approach in designing a unique AirB&B space has been the product of my work in interior design as well as my natural knack of entertaining and hosting. Additionally, my extensive travels to Europe and elsewhere has made me notice what works and doesn't for a comfortable stay.
