Our guests will enjoy the private use of a fully furnished Victorian flat in one of the hottest neighborhoods in the city - NOPA. Built in the late 1800’s, this Victorian has all of its old world charm; including, 11 foot ceilings, 9 foot pocket doors, grand molding, and beautiful hardwood floors throughout – it’s truly a unique San Francisco building and the historic aspects have been honed throughout. With an eye towards preserving the Victorian details and architecture, this flat has been renovated throughout. We have run CAT 6 ethernet cables (Internet lines) to every room in the house, integrated new lighting and electrical, modernized the space with top tier appliances and flat screens, and replaced all the windows with dual pane, sound resistant glass.
The flat has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a dining room, a living room and an eat-in kitchen with a Viking oven and stove. Outside, our guests get to enjoy a huge backyard paradise that's fully landscaped. We also have a garage and in-suite laundry if needed. The living room has a sleeper sofa and the room can be closed off to the rest of the house so it acts as a third bedroom.
The flat comes with lots of amenities including:
- 2 Flat screen TV’s – one in the living room and one in the master bedroom
- Wireless bluetooth stereo
- Chef’s Kitchen with a Viking oven and stove
- Cable with HBO
- Washer and Dryer in the unit

In total the Flat can comfortably host 6 people. A charge of $25 per night per guest for groups larger than 4 people will apply
Guests have access to the top flat only. There is a rented home below. However, nothing is off limits in regards to garage and yard space.
Interaction with Guests
We like to keep it simple with our guests. If you need ANYTHING we are only a phone call/text/ email or (website hidden) away, otherwise please enjoy as you would any other hotel suite.
This neighborhood is called NOPA, which stands for North of Panhandle Park. The Panhandle park feeds right into Golden Gate Park, which is in easy walking distance. NOPA is quickly becoming one of the hottest neighborhoods in San Francisco and it features a major development project called the Divisidero corridor, which has attracted many of the new and highly reviewed restaurants, bars, grocery stores, shops and boutiques. This area is also a hot bed for technology professionals since may of the major Silicon Valley and San Francisco based high tech companies provide mass transportation options right from Divisidero Street. NOPA is also centrally located so there's easy walking access to other interesting and fun neighborhoods, like; Haight Ashbury, Pacific Heights, Cole Valley, Lower Haight, Filmore, and Alamo Square. NOPA is also right by the University of San Francisco (USF). For your convenience, Lucky’s Supermarket, Trader Joes, and Whole Foods are also within walking distance. When you happen to visit on a beautiful day check out this perfect stroll right in our neighborhoodhttp://(email hidden)/outdoors/urbanoutings/article/The-perfect-Sunday-stroll-Alamo-Square-to-Hayes(phone number hidden).php
Since NOPA is the home to USF, there's great access to public transpertation to all points in the City. The 5 bus-line is right on our street and it runs from downtown to the beach on 5 minute intervals. Within 3 blocks from the house you can catch the 24 or the 43 - they both run North and South or you can catch the 21 or 31, which run East to West.

Please be respectful of the home as you would yours. We would like you to always come and stay for another visit. No pets and no smoking inside please
Mindi's apartment was the perfect place to stay! It was beautifully decorated and filled with lots of characters. I live in New Haven,CT with my husband and my parents are from Korea. It was our first time visiting San Francisco and we all fell in love with the city and the apartment.
There are nice restaurants, grocery stores and parks near the apartment.
Mindi was quick to respond to any of my questions and easy to talk to. We wish we could stay here longer! Thanks for making us feel like home and you made our stay in SF so much more comfortable:)
The flat is nothing but amazing and it's really easy to catch the bus to go wherever you would like to go in SF. Mindi was very helpful and replied quickly to our questions. We highly recommend this place.
Mindi's flat is even better in person than in the photos! She was a great, welcoming host and we felt secure in the flat with the keyless entry and alarm system at night. If we had any questions, she was available via phone. The neighborhood was so much fun and filled with great restaurants all within walking distance. We were able to take MUNI #5 across from the flat to downtown and venture in the ferry building for farmer's market on a Saturday morning. Mindi's flat is a great place to stay while in SF.
Mindi was a wonderful host. Prior to our arrival she warned us of possible flight delays due to weather forecast of fog and rain, gave us parking tips and allowed us to check in earlier than the reservation time. The apartment was true to the photos, warm and inviting, clean and spacious.
Mindi's apartment was clean and spacious- exactly as described in her listing. The muni stop was just meters away, too.
Mindi took all my calls and gave great tips on where to go for food and groceries. She even left a museum pass and bay cruise tickets for my family to use.
We highly recommend this apartment for a nice stay in SF.
Mindi was very organised and welcoming as our host. A beautiful character-filled apartment with plenty of space and a well-stocked kitchen. Fantastic central location. We really enjoyed our time in San Francisco. Thanks, Mindi!
Great apartment. Good location for getting around the city!
