The Space

Fully furnished 1 bedroom apartment a block from the beach, a few blocks from Golden Gate Park in the bustling neighborhood of Ocean Beach @ Judah, in the Outer Sunset.

The apartment features:
full kitchen with gas stove, coffee maker, toaster, espresso maker
1 bedroom with garden view and plenty of closet space
bathroom with shower & plenty of shelving
wireless internet
flatscreen TV (no cable)
private garden with patio, picnic bench and BBQ

The apartment is ideal for 1 or 2 people, but it is listed to accommodate 4 since there is room in the living room for an airbed, which we can provide.

This apartment has the best of all worlds, its a 20-30 minute cab ride from SFO Airport, a stones throw from N Judah line public transportation which takes you straight to UCSF, Haight/Ashbury, downtown San Francisco, Civic Center, Union Square, AT&T Park, the Embarcadero, Financial District and SOMA.
Plus it is a block from the beach and a few blocks from Golden Gate Park.
If you have a car, street parking is never a problem. You can take the scenic route over by Sea Cliff and on to the Golden Gate Bridge in minutes from the apartment.

This safe, residential neighborhood is known for its beach community feel, surfers, dog walkers and beach joggers are plentiful.

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to coffee shops and restaurants. These few blocks on Judah offer American cuisine, as well as Irish, Cajun, Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, Indian, Vegan, Vietnamese Seafood. Plus there is a Brewery, a 7/11, lots of corner stores, launderettes, juice bar, salons and gift shops and an Organic Grocery store.

Things you should know about - the mattress is firm, the garden is not landscaped, there is no microwave, the bathroom is functional but no frills, the weather is San Francisco is unpredictable, one minute the sun is out, the next it is foggy.

  • This was a fantastic place to stay in San Francisco! Very comfortable and clean. Great access to the heart of the city via the Judah line tram and also a fantastic spot to escape and enjoy the park and beach!! I would highly recommend this accommodation to all travellers to this fantastic city!! Laura was very commutative before and during our stay and was prompt to help and answer any concerns we may have had. I am very grateful to her!!

  • Excellent stay!

    Pour notre passage à San Francisco nous avons été ravi car l'appartement est excellent sur tout.
    Accès quasi direct à la plage, très proche du Golden Gate Park, transport en commun juste à coté et très régulier.

    Que demander de plus? Je ne sais pas

    Une chose est sûr si je dois revenir ce sera la.

    Encore merci.

    Hi Julien,
    Glad everything was great.
    Thanks for the review and the suggestion of dish clothes, we are adding those to the shopping list!

  • This apartment was very convenient to the beach (block and a half) and public transportation (1/2 block). We were able to take the train from essentially the front door right to the baseball game. The apartment was very economical compared to other San Fran properties. The apartment could use some TLC in several areas. I also don't think it should be advertised as a private garden apt since the apartment is not maintained at all. The host was not present during our stay but was very helpful and made sure that we got in and settled fine.

    Hi Dave,
    Glad you liked the location of the apartment.
    Thanks for the review and the suggestions and comments, all very valid. I have amended the description accordingly and alerted potential guests to the fact that the garden is not landscaped. We had a fill in cleaner this past while who didn't alert us to the warp, water and bulb issues, so they are promptly being taken care of.

  • Laura's place was fantastic! Exactly what we needed after a full day of sightseeing. Some amenities were left out for us, like toothpaste and some much-needed aloe vera sunburn lotion. The kitchen was cute and small, but be advised that there is no microwave! The bed is very comfy as well, Laura was very nice to check in with us throughout our trip and make sure everything was well. There is a liquor store a few houses down, as well as some breakfast spots down the other way. Be aware of street cleaning, I believe it was Friday and Tuesday and neighbors informed us how heavily they can fine, so make sure you pay attention to that. All in all, our trip was perfect and Laura's place was just what we needed. We would definitely stay there again!

  • Our 7 day, stay here was great! The apartment was clean, cute, and comfortable. In a great location as well- beach, cafe's, park, grocery, laundry, transportation, etc, in walking distance. Laura was easy to reach and communicate with. A fabulous first visit to San Fran. Thanks Laura!

  • Everything was well. Laura was very quick in answerin(website hidden)s. The apartment is a good place to stay.
    We where there with our 2 girls for 3 nights. This was ok. For one week the apartment is very small. Thankyou Laura for your apartment.

  • Laura a été très présente et sympathique pour s'enquérir de notre arrivée et départ malgré son absence. L'appartement est très bien situé à quelques pas du Golden Gate Park et de l'arrêt de métro Ocean Beach. Quartier pratique avec un petit resto / brunch sympathique, des commerces, une laverie. Appartement bien équipé, bien agencé et propre.
    Cependant, des voisins très bruyants (sans doute à cause du manque d'isolation), une literie vieillissante pas forcément très confortable et un appartement plus sombre que sur les photos

  • Lovely place, looks just like the pictures. Laura had the place perfectly ready for us and nothing was amiss. We asked for an air mattress in addition to the bed provided, and the mattress she had for us was a beaut - a disgustingly comfortable one with a built-in pump, the most deluxe air mattress I have ever seen.

    Instructions to get in were easy, and the location was ridiculously awesome - one block from the beach, and a few blocks from Golden Gate park. Even commuting into the city in the morning was easy. We couldn't have been happier!

  • Laura haben wir leider nicht persönlich kennen gelernt. Sie war aber immer schnell erreichbar und ansprechbar, wenn wir etwas auf dem Herzen hatten. Das kleine Appartment liegt nur zwei Querstraßen vom Strand entfernt. Bis zum Golden Gate Park und zur Golden Gate Bridge ist es nur ein Katzensprung. Der Innenstadtbereich liegt etwas weiter weg, aber mit der Straßenbahn ist man relativ schnell dort. Die kleine Wohnung betritt man über die Garage und sie befindet sich im Erdgeschoss. Sie ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und man kann sich dort wunderbar selbst versorgen. Auch wenn die Wohnung nicht sehr hell ist, ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Das Bad ist zwar kein "day spa" und man hört leise Geräusche vom Nachbarn, aber wir uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Danke Laura!!! Ein idealer und preiswerter Ausgangspunkt für diese sensationelle Stadt.

  • The apartment was very clean and comfortable and well appointed. We really enjoyed being able to walk to Golden Gate Park and the beach. Just a block from the muni line, we found it easy to head into other areas of the city. There are a number of great little cafés nearby---(email hidden)-op for purchasing delicious food. Great little apartment! Although we didn't meet our Host, Laura made communicating easy. Thank you !
