-LOCATION, Location, Location!! With Haight street literally being just a block away, there are never ending options for restaurants, pubs, shops, health food stores, boutiques & cafes
Extremely convenient public transportation: adjacent to 6 & 71 bus lines which take you straight down Market Street into the heart of San Francisco, also adjacent to the 43 bus line and two blocks from the 33 which takes you to the Mission District.
- Great food and bars! Across the street is Magnolia Gastropub and Brewery, and all less than 5 minutes away are: Squat & Gobble Cafe & Crepery, Pork Store Cafe, The Alembic, Hobson's Choice, and Cha Cha Cha.
- Many excellent grocery stores: Haight Street Market is 1.5 blocks away, Whole Foods is 5 blocks down Haight Street, and a new brand new Bi-Rite Store just opened up 8 blocks away.
- Boutique shopping galore: tons of specialty shops, thrift shops, and high end clothing stores right here on Haight Street.
-A post office is half a block away, so feel free to drop off a postcard to your friends/family on your walk to Haight Street.
-With its rich history, walking down Haight street is definitely an experience and gives you insight into why this was the heart of the Hippie movement! Diverse crowds and unique shops are all part of the experience.
-If you like to run/bike/or just enjoy being outdoors, you are in luck. Our house is a block away from the pan handle park. If you want the real deal, then just walk down three blocks and find yourself at the start of Golden Gate Park, where there are multiple museums (Academy of Sciences, Flower Conservatory, etc) and year around events. Always something to do here!
-If you are a fan of water, then a quick 15 minute drive away is the Pacific Ocean, where on warm and yes even cold weekends, people can be found lounging, surfing, swimming, etc!
-A bike rental place is a few blocks down, so this is another fantastic way to explore the city on a bike. You can put your bike in the back yard or the garage.
My wife and I live in the upstairs unit of the building. We are both working professionals and are home usually in the evenings. However, I can be reached via cell phone 24/7. The great thing about living on site is it allows us to address any questions/concerns you may have. We are both laid back and respectful. We have lived in this city close to 20 years, so we can help you with suggestions on places to visit, eat, etc.

The place was great! Perfectly located - lots of food options, shopping, and parks.
Ashir and his wife were extremely welcoming, communicative, and friendly.
My dad stayed at Ashir's place and really spoke highly of them. It is conveniently located and easy to access. Ashir and his wife are really nice people according to my dad.
We had a great time in the city. We met our host he was very helpful with directions and suggestions.
The room was clean and spacious I would definitely recommend this space to others. Not sure if I got lucky but parking was not bad. And I truly liked the location of the place.
Really great location. Nice place to stay. We arrive late and they were really convenient.
We recommend this place to stay in San Francisco.
I had a great stay in this beautiful historic home. My host was very flexible and answered my questions promptly.
the owners of the house were very nice to us and tried to accommodate our needs well.the house was a older Victorian style house in a good location. located one block from the famous haight- ashbury district and on block from golden gate park. the location is great for tourists and travelers alike.
the shared bathroom and toilet rooms were kept clean and supplied well. the neighboring tenants were nice and quiet during our visit.
if anything, our only negative response would be that of parking, or sever lack of of it. I suggest future tenants realize quickly that it might be easier to bring a bicycle, take a cab, or ride the BART system to get around. since a lot of attractions are near by or close.
this is real nice place to stay, affordable, and well located. the parking situation is ridiculous
Ashir and Margaret are very welcoming hosts who make staying in there house a pleasure. They were able to accommodate my (very) late check in due to travel delays, which I was very grateful for.
The room is large, and comfortable, with plenty of space to make yourself at home. The bed struck me as hard at first, but is in fact a dream to sleep on. The shared Kitchen is well equipped and thought through which makes using it easy, and the bathroom and toilet are always spotless.
It was my first time in San Fransisco, and this is a great location to access the sights from. The neighbourhood is nice, and everything you could want is in easy walking distance.
I really enjoyed San Fransisco, and Ashir and Margaret's hospitality.
