About This Listing
This remodeled 1 BR suite is very near UCSF and 3 blocks from Golden Gate Park. It is a private apartment (approx 750 square feet) on the bottom floor of an old Edwardian home, and is centrally located with multiple transportation options. You can walk to many great restaurants, two major museums, Haight Ashbury, jog to Ocean Beach or catch a quick train downtown to the Financial District and Ferry Building.
There is a private bathroom in the bedroom and a 1/2 bath off of the living room. The kitchenette includes a mini refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, tea kettle and all utensils. There are laundry machines as well. There is also access to a backyard with views, deck and Adirondack chairs.
We live upstairs with two school aged children and use the main entrance. Guests access the apartment from a separate entrance on the street.
We recommend not renting a car. Parking is very easy on the weekends but can be a challenge Mon-Fri from 9am-6pm. There are multiple bus lines (6 and 43) and MUNI light rail (N Judah) transportation all within 1 block.
No parties, no smoking and no pets permitted. Quiet please after 11pm. You have privacy as we sleep two floors up from the apartment.
This was my first Airbnb experience. I came to San Francisco to visit with my daughter and get respite for a week. Jeanne was very attentive to my need of assurance that I understood clearly, the unique issues of parking in SF near her home. She was prompt in answering all my questions, and provided me with plenty of resources to help me with getting around the city. One day, she offered to interrupt her plans and return to the apartment to accommodate me when I locked myself out. I thought it was very generous for her to offer that - beyond the call of duty, though I didn't need to take her up on it since I had just been leaving to take a walk and get lunch somewhere. The apartment was lovely. It was clean and orderly. I felt at home and settled in easily. I enjoyed the quiet that I needed. Knowing SF is a bustling city, I had concerns that I'd hear noise all night and not be able to sleep well. I was so relieved to find that I had all the quiet I needed - day and night. I had all the privacy I needed. And the cute backyard area was a plus. It had a second bathroom; that was handy with my daughter being with me. There were a couple portable heaters available for me to use, which I appreciated when it got cold. The washer & dryer came in handy too. I only wished the apartment had a full kitchen. I was told ahead of time that the kitchen had a microwave, but not stove and oven. So it wasn't as if I was misled. My daughter & I enjoy cooking together, so we did that once at her place. I would return to Jeanne's place again in the future. She was a very good host.
I enjoyed my three day stay at Jeanne's place. She assured that I had easy access to the unit once I arrived. It was very quiet and clean. This was my first airbnb experience and I loved the privacy that I had. The unit had a great view and I was provided information of places to visit while in town. Jeanne followed up with me to see if there was anything that I needed. Thanks for a great stay in SF!
This was my first Airbnb experience and it was great! Jeanne was very quick to respond to questions during reservation process and to provide some recommendations. The suite was as pictured, clean, neat and spacious. The bed is especially comfortable. We appreciated the washer/dryer in the kitchenette and the use of coffee pot, toaster and microwave. Living room furniture is comfy and TV is also loaded with movie channels so after a long day of sight-seeing, it was great to relax and watch a movie before bed.
We LOVED the neighborhood. Great restaurants, bakeries and markets within walking distance plus Golden Gate Park and Haight Ashbury as well. One block to catch the Muni to other sights - Ocean Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, etc. We had a fantastic trip and a wonderful stay. Would return! Thanks Jeanne!
One thing to note, there are 4-5 steep steps leading down to entry door - worth knowing if you have knee or hip issues or large luggage. Wasn't a problem for us, but good to know.
This was my first Airbnb experience. The apartment was clean and spacious with two bathrooms a kitchenette and laundry facilities. It is ideally situated close to public transportation so either getting downtown or to the ocean was very simple. The best part of the apartment is the bed. Very comfortable with lots of plushy pillows. Jeanne and Dave are such nice people. They accommodated a special request I had without hesitation. They also chatted with me about the city and neighborhoods. It was overall a great first experience.
Our first Airbnb experience and definitely an enjoyable one! Jeanne's place was sizeable for a one bedroom and includes a nice living room, pantry, garden and 2 toilets. The place is well kept, as pictures presented it, and, well stocked with amenities including coffee, tea and beverages. The neighbourhood was pleasant, quiet and had lots of great restaurants within walking distance (We went to Zazie 5 times!).
Overall, we felt we had a good local experience of San Francisco at Jeanne's place.
Thanks Jeanne and Dave for hosting us!
