Our family of four lives upstairs. We're here to help if you need anything. We keep the studio for guests only, so there isn't much personal clutter, just a few touches.
NOISE (IMPORTANT PLEASE READ)
The studio is on the bottom floor of a wood-framed building. Our family's main living space is directly above the studio, so you will hear us: footsteps, dropped objects, muffled voices, music, etc. Our family is generally active from 7:00am to 10:00pm and occasionally during the night (the little ones are unpredictable). Most of our past guests have noticed the noise but have told us that it didn't bother them. If you are particularly sensitive to sound or suspect that it might keep you from enjoying your stay, this may not be the right place for you. It's important for us to know you are comfortable as we go about our business above you. A white noise machine and individually wrapped ear plugs are provided in the studio.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Only confirmed guests allowed on premises. No parties please.

We were made to feel very welcome at this lovely apartment. It was just as described and had everything we needed.
The location was perfect for us and the clipper card provided made transport into the city easy.
Thanks for a wonderful stay we may see you again next year !!
Regards Mandi and Tony
We spent such a great time! The apartment was very nice, clean and very comfortable. We were very well received. Thank you for drinks in the fridge! ;-)
We loved our stay! The apartment was very comfortable and well furnished. The garden view certainly made the place feel both homey and secluded in spite of its location central to the Mission and Castro districts. We appreciated Todd's map of the neighborhood with an overview of local favorite restaurants, cafes and shopping.
The studio was everything we were looking for, we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The location is excellent, close to very interesting neighbourhoods (a short walk to the murals of Clarion Alley), lots of good restaurants and cafés and the transit is easy with the metro two blocks away and a BART station not much further. The perfect place to explore the city while providing some tranquility.
One of the best I've ever stayed at. We arrived about 11AM on Sat. 7/25, we were able to leave our bags in the hallway till 2PM (check in time) which was nice because we went to have breakfast and explore Union Square. We got back to the studio about 1:45PM, the cleaning lady was just about finished cleaning the studio and left exactly at 2PM (check in time). The studio was very clean, very cozy, had all of our necessities and more. Loved that it had apple TV just like home for Netflix, had Wi-Fi, the bed was super comfortable, the pillows were even better and the blankets were the best. We felt like we were home and it was hard to get up, get ready and get our day started cause we were just so comfy in our studio and neighborhood. The studio is in a great location, right in-between Mission and Castro, by the muni (underground subway) to take you inbound and outbound. We would definitely be back, thank you.
It is really same as the pictures. Place is perfect to hang out. When I have a chance to go SF again, I want to visit this house again as well.
Ein wunderschönes, super gelegenes Studio auf Gartenebene! Öv und zig Restaurants gleich um die Ecke! Sehr nette Gastgeber. Das Studio ist relativ dunkel und kühl, trotz Vorwarnung, dass die Kinder laut seien-waren wir doch erstaunt WIE laut es ist! Die Wände sind wirklich sehr dünn. Leider hatte das Bett auch schon bessere Tage!
Trotzdem empfehlen wir das Studio-da die Lage einfach DER Hammer ist!
