About This Listing
Victorian garden apartment located in ideal Mission setting - quiet tree-lined street minutes away from restaurants, clubs, galleries and Mission culture. Designed and furnished expressly for those desiring the privacy and luxury of a good hotel combined with the spirit of San Francisco, this apartment is ideal for those wanting the comforts of home in an amazing location to venture out for city exploring.
The Mission District is one of the sunniest neighborhoods in San Francisco and convenient to downtown, the Castro District, Moscone Center, the Design District, as well as Dolores Park and AT&T park.
Ground floor of a historic Victorian from the 1890's, this large studio apartment has a private entrance, hardwood floors, beautifully mosaic-ed bathroom, high ceilings and period details. It is charming and fully furnished with an organic cotton queen bed, luxurious bedding, plenty of storage space and a large,cheerful, and fully equipped eat-in kitchen. For a studio apartment, this is on the large side, with a wide and long hallway that serves as office space.
The entry hallway has a couch that folds into a twin sized mattress. It's a tight fit, but perfect for that third person, or if quests prefer not to share the queen bed.
A beautiful garden and historic carriage house is right out your kitchen window and there is shared washer and dryer if required. The apartment is stocked with maps, guidebooks, and local magazines.
24th Street Bart (Bay Area Rapid Transit, SF's Subway) is a ten minute walk away, and a bus line that goes straight downtown is one block away. Parking is street only, but you'd be staying in one of the most walkable neighborhoods in the country, and have access to multiple forms of public transportation.
Please contact me if you have any questions about the unit.
First and foremost: respect our neighbors! The building is 3 units, and the other 2 are have full-time residents. We're all a great bunch in the building, but please be appropriately quiet, especially at night.
Please, absolutely NO smoking in the apartment or back garden.
The apartment was really adorable, and Bryan was very thoughtful and helpful as a host. There wasn't much that needed to be said between us, since everything was so lovely, but he did a great job of making himself available for any questions or concerns we may have had. I would definitely stay here again!
Amazing location! Amazing place to stay! The apartment is within walking distance of Valencia, which is the heart of the Mission District. There are tons of amazing cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops nearby. Also, the apartment itself is great. Everything was set up for us, and made to make us feel welcome. There was even a music player for my iPhone! I highly recommend staying at the Gem Garden Apartment in Mission!
We loved our time at the House of York. We wanted to stay somewhere walkable, and this location was just perfect. The SF books were fun to look through, and the bed was large & comfy. Bryan was also an incredible host; he responded to messages right away and even let us check out a few hours late so that we didn't have to lug our suitcases around the Mission. We would definitely recommend this place to folks wanting an affordable option in a great area.
We had an amazing time staying in Bryan's beautiful apartment in San Francisco. The place was lovely, tidy, quirky and with everything you could need on hand. It was on a quiet street within walking distance of many, many great bars and restaurants and the bus stop is just around the corner if you want to head further afield. Bryan was an amazing host, really kind and communicative and made the process of eloping to San Francisco a breeze as we never once had to worry about accommodation. We hope to be back soon!
It was a little outside the main drag for the Mission District, but the cab rides were very reasonable so it wasn't a big deal. The room was nice and tidy when we arrived.
There are no real mirrors to use when getting dressed/ready (kind of a problem when you are a girl!) and the back patio is not super clean or accessible for people to use.
Also it lists it as 1 queen bed and 1 "fold out"-- just a heads up, the fold out is super uncomfortable!
Also the shower is pretty terrible... if you have long and/or thick hair, there is no way you will be able to wash it. I actually had to make an appointment at the local Dry Bar to get my hair washed/done!
Amazing apartment in the Mission with a cute back yard. The decor was adorable and the host provided my friend and myself with everything we could possibly need! Thank you Brian!
It was perfect, thank you Bryan! Thank you for being helpful with our (website hidden) delivery. Much appreciated! Really enjoyed all the wonderful restaurants in the area of your apartment.
About the Host, Bryan
I live in one of the greatest homes in the Mission. This house is full of artists, activists, and people who do good work for the world, so if you stay here you are in fabulous company. I am currently working on my nursing degree and I am managing this apartment to help make it happen.
