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.

Kitchen. Custom cabinets as well as wall shelving; quatz counter-top; new fridge, microwave and coffee-maker; dishware setting for 4; essential food items. European heated linoleum floor. Huge walk-in closet.
Annabelle's private garden studio was in a lovely, quiet hilltop neighborhood near a park, and was perfect for a weekend stay for my out-of-town niece and me. The studio and garden are very well appointed with a private entrance and there were many thoughtful amenities in the kitchen and bathroom. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great alternative to San Francisco hotels.
Great place - beautifully decorated and very well equipped for a couple. Plenty of quality towels and linens, glass and silverware, china and a coffemaker (all very handy if you are planning on having breakfast in), washing and drying machine, great wifi speed. Annabelle really went that extra mile and made sure to think of travelers' needs (washing liquid, dryer sheets, Q-tips, dish drying mat, napkins, even umbrellas). Great neighbourhood as well, noce and quiet and walking distance to the Castro and some great dinner options like L'Artoise.
Our only remark: the studio is actually part of Annabelle's house and there is no lock on the door to it, which means anyone in the house can access it. Although we had absolutely no problems at all during our stay, I would have felt more comfortable to have at least an inside lock.
We were very pleased with the garden studio! It was perfectly delightful and we had the pleasure of meeting our host as well. Everything was very clean and exactly as pictured and the view out the patio was beautiful. It was a very convenient and comfortable apartment and we would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the beautiful city of San Francisco!
We visited San Francisco and stayed three nights. The unit is really beautiful and has everything you might need during your stay. From coffee to umbrellas, Annabelle thought of everything to ensure that our stay was extremely comfortable. It's in a great area of San Francisco. Plenty to do within walking distance, a park right down the block, beautiful views. We've been traveling through California for about two weeks and this was definitely the nicest place we've stayed. Can't say enough!
Great stay! Annabelle was a very good hostess and everything went smoothly! Nothing negative in our visit. Good internet connection and own patio were a great plus.
Tosi hyvä asunto. Suosittelen. Siisti, oma piha ja toimiva netti. Alue oli turvallinen ja suht läheltä pääsi metrolla keskustaan (pienet ala- ja ylämäet välissä). Haight-Ashbury lähellä, jossa ainakin ravintola Sparrow oli tosi hyvä. Myös hieno näköalakukkula lähellä, samoin Castro. Mahtava vastapaino keskustan hotelleille ja ehdottomasti kannattaa ottaa mieluummin esim tämä asunto. Oltiin täällä 7. yötä ja 3. yötä hotellissa. Ehdottomasti ensi kerralla kaikki yöt airbnb:n kautta.
Bel appartement, quelques soucis pour le check in et pour faire la cuisine.
We really enjoyed our stay at Annabelle's place. It is a lovely space, beautifully decorated, and in a location that allowed us easy access to San Francisco. Thank you!
About the Host, Annabelle
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.
