Our neighborhood is a great spot. It's a quiet neighborhood with many restaurants, bars, parks super close by.
We are very conveniently located to many modes of public transportation. We are just a few minutes from the Glen Park BART station that is the artery of the city. We are also close to many buses and the J-Church line which get you to all other parts of the city you would want to visit.

Leslie and Todd really do have a great home base for visiting San Francisco. The location is easily accessable by car and bus/BART. We were four and were able to be comfortably accommodated. My wife and I were installing our two children in San Francisco for their university studies. Parking on the street was a little complicated, but really no big deal. The apartment has everything you might need and was just like being at home. We were able to take walks at a park about six blocks away and the neighborhood was quiet and clean. Leslie and Todd were very helpful the few times that we needed their suggestions. We would love to return when we go back to visit our kids.
Great apartment. Very large with a modern Kitchen fully equipped Charming yard and sweet puppy visit! Extremely lush and comfortable bed. Really a five star place. Puts staying in a hotel... any hotel to shame!
Great place, nice hosts, great dog, good public transport connection. No complaints at all :)
Leslie's studio apt was the PERFECT place for what we needed--quiet, comfortable, and convenient to all of SF! Leslie was out of town but everything was exactly as she described and the directions were super easy. The only problem was that the bed in the apt was waaaaay more comfortable than ours at home...so now we're looking for another mattress :) We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to the Bay Area.
Nice Apartment in quiet neighborhood with easy access to public transportation system. Apartment got everything u need - except washer. Unfortunately, not properly cleaned although we were charged a fee for afterwards cleaning. Cute dog but since it's a basement u will hear every running upstairs at any hour . Besides that, we had a convenient stay! Nice for a short trip to the San Francisco area.
It was great staying at the studio apartment. It was in a great location and very close to Glen BART station to get you into town and a very short work from the number 49 bus stop. The apartment was practically brand new and had everything you need, including a full kitchen for cooking if you want. It was a pleasure staying here.
We had à very nice stay in this almost new apartment.
Thank you Leslie to give us your very comfortable place! Nothing is missing!!
I'm a San Francisco native and I love this city very much. This house has been in my family for almost 70 years. Crazy.
If you want some great recommendations for restaurants or interesting destinations to visit, I would love to share them with you.
