There is no parking on the premises. There is free Street Parking - no permit required - but it can be hard to get. Keep in mind, as is common in the heart of the city, parking becomes more difficult when people are home from work. Public transportation in the form of buses (the 71 which takes you down Market stright to the ferry building is a block away) and the Muni train is nearby or you can just hail a cab!
Check-in is 3:00 pm with a 10:00 am check out, but it is flexible depending on the schedule. Please request in advance if you wish to check in later than 9 p.m.
(No smoking, No Pets Please)
Also - you should know the rates are $400/$450 weekend. The Airbnb calendar doesn't seem to be showing these rates or calculating them consistently.
Here are some of our favorite local places. This isn't a complete list but can get you started!
Pork Store Cafe - 1451 Haight @ Ashbury (eggs in a nest, banana walnut pancakes) If you don't want to wait in line you can call it in and bring it home to eat!
La Boulange de Cole -1000 Cole St (between Parnassus Ave & Grattan St) (great French place, lots of little quiches and treats) Family friendly, worth the 6 block walk up Cole.
Squat and Gobble - 1428 Haight St (between Ashbury St & Masonic Ave) (crepes)
Blue Front Café – 1430 Haight St @ Ashbury (Bagels)
Peoples Café and Coffee for the People - Coffee
El Faro - 1654 Haight St (between Belvedere St & Cole St) (Mission Style Super Burritos – a San Francisco Classic!)
Blue Front Café – Mediterranean Food
Cha Cha Cha – Caribbean Tapas. One of the best restaurants in the city. Doesn't take reservations so either go early or put your name in and plan to either come back, get sangria there, or go to a neighboring pub for a bit. 1801 Haight St (between Shrader St & Stanyan St)
Alembic – 1801 Haight St (between Shrader St & Stanyan St)
Gastro pub. Great chef with a really creative and original menu that changes daily.
Escape from NY Pizza 1737 Haight Street (NY style by the slice) up on Haight
Delivery food: Paxtis (get the deep dish pizza – takes an hour but worth the wait!), Big Lantern Chinese; Siam Lotus Thai and Best of Thai Noodle;– see the menus (tiny table in the front room)!
Bars on Haight: Aub Zam Zam (SF's famously quirky bar); Magnolia (great Gastro pub food and microbrews); Hopson's Choice (Antique sofas and yummy but dangerous punch); Murios (has Pliney the Elder on tap); Martin Macks (Irish Sports bar with all the fixins)
Haight Street Market, 1530 Haight Street, is around the block. They are expensive on some items but produce is a pretty good deal.
Whole Foods - Haight and Stanyan (pretty much has everything)
Liquid Experience, 1589 Haight Street, is a great place to get some really interesting beers and wines. They know their stuff – so ask them!
Things to do:
Walk down the panhandle to JFK drive in Golden Gate Park (street is shut down on Sundays) – by the Conservatory of Flowers, Stowe Lake (can rent boats or carriages to ride), Botanical Gardens, Japanese Tea Gardens
Walk to the Koret Children's Playground (bring some cardboard if the kids want to go down the Toboggan hill and bring some change for the historical Carousel if its open)
Walk to the De Young Museum (Fine Art and travelling exhibits)
Walk to the California Academy of Arts and the Steinhart Aquarium (Albino alligator, Planetarium – very fun!)
Shopping on Haight Street – Ambiance at 1458 Haight is my favorite store, but there's a ton of places to go!
There is one room with our personal belongings that is locked off.
