ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Hayes Valley is simply one of the city’s most exciting enclaves. Just over a decade ago, Hayes Street lay under the shadow of Highway 101—but then city planners tore down the overpass and turned it into a lovely urban park called Patricia’s Green. Now Hayes Valley is thriving at a truly remarkable rate, with every week bringing new restaurants and boutiques for a growing audience of foodies and fashion-forward locals.
Nestled between Alamo Square and the War Memorial Opera House, this little jewel of a neighborhood offers a whole range of great San Francisco experiences, including:
• Smitten, an ice cream shop that makes each batch to order using the freshest seasonal ingredients, freezing your treat with liquid nitrogen while you watch
• Biergarten, a lovely outdoor bar with a variety of tough-to-find German brews on tap
• The Fatted Calf, a first-rate charcuterie with a Pork Happy Hour every Tuesday
• Taste, a serene and stylish tea room on Octavia with rare Chinese teas on offer alongside homemade treats like taro cake rolls
• Gimme Shoes, just one of an astonishing array of shoe stores on Hayes Street
• Fiddlesticks, our vote for one of San Francisco’s most charming toy stores, with staff eager to help you find just the right gift for any little one
• True Sake, a boutique devoted entirely to Japanese rice wine
• Straw, a carnival-themed restaurant where you can eat sweet potato tots in an old Tilt-A-Whirl
• San Francisco Zen Center, an urban oasis just around the corner from the apartment, with regular meditation sessions open to the public
San Francisco is one of the most walkable cities in the country, and this apartment is an easy stroll to neighborhoods like the Lower Haight (5 minutes on foot), the Mission (10 minutes), Duboce Triangle (10 minutes), and the Castro (20 minutes).
Public transportation offers many viable options for getting around, with close access to multiple bus routes leading all over the city. The Van Ness Muni (i.e., subway) station is five blocks away, and the Civic Center BART (i.e., light-rail) station is an eight-block amble.
If you're a fan of bikes, rentals are available at Patricia's Green, and the city offers a number of cross-town bike routes for exploring on two wheels.
(Street parking is available in Hayes Valley, but not recommended—spaces are limited and legal guidelines can be confusing for non-locals.)
No smoking of any substances in the apartment. No guests under 12. No parties or loud disturbances.

I love living in San Francisco. I'm a self-employed massage therapist, and am starting a second business teaching folks how to use everyday technology. There is so much to do in this town that I firmly believe there's something for everyone. I volunteer at The Crucible, and industrial arts school, doing fire safety, help out with Variety Children's charity, and blues dance. I sometimes rock climb at one of our local gyms, and really love getting coffee and a book at Borderlands Books up on Valencia.
I love having house guests, but am new to Airbnb. I'll be renting my room when I'm traveling. My hope is to provide you with all of the information you need to have your San Francisco dreams come true, and to be able to take care of your needs while you're here and I'm gone. I can give recommendations over the phone or via email, and will be happy to have a welcome basket waiting for you based on your individual needs.
