Come stay in our huge (1300 sq ft) apartment right by the waterfront. Right next to all the great tourist hot spots, the apartment is ideal for seeing the city. 2 feet from our doorstep you can see Alcatraz in plain view and 5 steps away you can hop on the iconic Hyde/Powell cable car. Within 5 minutes walk to some of the most popular and photogenic spots in SF. Within 5 minutes from Pier 39, Beach street, Ghiradelli Square, Lombard Street, Fort Mason, & North Beach. Why pay $300+ a night at a hotel when you can stay here for half that?

**If you are booking for Dec 14-17 or Dec 25-26 you're in luck - you'll have the entire apartment to yourself!**
The apartment is sunny, spacious, and warm. You'll have the entire living room + bedroom to yourself. Its a gigantic 25' x 13' space that comes with an extra spare mattress if you have extra company. The bed is a queen with a comforter and duvet cover on a solid black wood frame. Added in the room are a working desk, extra storage cubes, and 3 full leather couches for relaxing. We painted one of the walls with IdeaPaint whiteboard paint so feel free to plan out your day by drawing on the wall. The room is huge and has plenty of space to sprawl out and recuperate from your day. We have a large Japanese shoji screen that you can use to bock off the entrance for extra privacy.
. Classically San Franciscan, the building was built a little over 100 years ago after the Great Quake. The entire 2bdrm/2 bath apartment was just completely renovated last month. Brand new kitchen counter tops, tiles, dark hardwood floors, intercom system, back patio, custom cabinetry, new refrigerator, central heating, and with huge windows. From our 25 x 13 foot living room you watch the cable cars clatter by or hang out in the grass and listen to the ocean waves a block from our front door.

If you're looking to workout we can help you get a guest pass to the 24 hour fitness thats close by. Similarly we have cityshare/zipcar accounts if you're interested in renting a car for the day.

We're mere blocks from where the ships leave once you do make your reservation.

There is coin laundry on the premises.

If you are a smoker you're free to do so on the back patio. Check in times are pretty flexible as long as you give us advance notice. If anything needs attention please be in contact with us.

Très sympa comme quartier, appartement plutôt agréable avec un jardinet a l'arrière. Seul bémol un peu de bruit car la chambre (très spacieuse car c'est le séjour) donne sur la rue ou passe le cable car... et pas vraiment de porte pour s'isoler du reste de l appartement situé au rez de chaussée. A vous d'organiser le petit déjeuner, ... et pour nous arranger Evan nous a passé une chambre plus calme et située a l arrière sur le jardin. Séjour plutôt réussi malgré quelques petits aléas. Le parking est vraiment un plus.
Great place in a great location. The room was really spacious and the bed was one of the most comfortable I can remember. The parking spot is a very nice touch as well. In addition to these big things, there were many little things that confirmed what a thoughtful and professional host Evan is - the fresh packages of rose soap and glass bottle of water on the coffee table with his-and-hers cups come to mind.
Evan was also extremely easy to reach and accommodating as our arrival time slid back the first night and we ended up wanting to extend our stay the next day. Although we didn't actually get to meet face to face, I can say Evan represents true hospitality and everything that makes Airbnb great.
Great overall experience, Evan was a great host and a pleasure to chat/swap travel stories with. He also was very responsive to my notes and provided a ton of super helpful travel tips for getting around and getting the most out of my visit. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
Evan was both a great host, with a great apartment, but more importantly a great source of information only a local resident could provide. He went above and beyond to help me get the most out of my trip and make life as a tourist east. Much appreciated and would definitely stay with Evan again!

I just moved back to San Francisco about 5 months ago after living abroad in India and France. I took the crash course in learning San Francisco and would be glad to help you get the best out of your visit. I'm currently running a web studio but in a past life I was in VC. West coast transplant from the midwest.
