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.

Parking for guest vehicles is a challenge in SF, but options are available for us:

-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.

Annabelle was very responsive to all questions I asked leading up to the trip. The apt was exactly as described and had a wonderful time!
This place is an absolute gem, it looks and feels better in person than even the nice pictures. Lots of privacy, super quiet neighborhood and the host Annabelle was very helpful when I needed anything and it's handy that she lives upstairs. The location is very convenient to most of the city and an Uber/Lyft is always less than 4 minutes away.
I'm definitely coming back here for future trips.
The apartment was in an beautiful neighborhood and you could see all the way across the city. Looking across the city we felt like we were in a movie, it felt so unreal... A wonderful host and a lovely charming place to stay, what more could one want? This was my first Airbnb experience and it made it possible for me to travel for the first time in years as my asthma is triggered by air fresheners. Thanks for making a dream possible!!!
The apartment was modern, clean, cozy and comfortable. It had everything we needed. The backyard garden was so perfect and beautiful to get some rest and take some memorable photos with my friend. We met Annabelle when we get to the apartment, she was so kind and helpful. She kept contact us to ask if we had special needs. We could go to the subway station in 10 min and the neighborhood houses around were so pretty. Also, the little black kitty greeted us everyday, she was so sweeeeeeet!
We met Annabelle briefly when we first arrived and she was lovely and very helpful during our stay communicating through messages quickly when we had questions. The room was modern, clean and had everything we needed. Also in a good area and we were able to walk to most places we wanted to go for food with 5-10mins and easily catch transport to anywhere that was a bit further like fishermans wharf, etc. The shared laundry was a good bonus and garden area was a quaint, peaceful space the perfect spot for resting in between sight-seeing.
The studio garden was the perfect location for our conference being held at CPMC. We where able to walk there from the muni station. It was very clean, easy to find the private entrance and quiet neighborhood. It fit three people perfectly, but the cot bed was not very comfortable, I would recommend more padding on it. Actually wasn't able to sleep the first night, 2nd night was better after I piled on a few more blankets. But all in all it was a very nice apt studio, and quiet. Would definitely stay here again but would sleep in the Murphy bed,
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.
