The space

This NON-SMOKING, quiet and private 1 bedroom studio (500+ sq.ft.) is a charming, peaceful hideaway 2 blocks from Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park and Lands End. It has a queen-size bed tucked into a cozy yet spacious alcove, wet bar, dinette, small private bath (shower only), and living room with flat-screen tv. The self-contained studio is on the ground floor of my home with a secure, well lit, private street entry through my garage and access to the deck and patio in the back of the home. I hope the large sitting/living room makes you feel as comfortable as being in your own home. Enjoy the deck/patio, kick back and relax after a day of sightseeing, shopping in Union Square or biking across the Golden Gate Bridge, and take in the charm of this unique Ocean Beach neighborhood.

In addition to Ocean Beach just 2 blocks away (with its great surfing and kite surfing), you will be within walking distance to the iconic Cliff House restaurant (romantic spot to watch the sun set over the Pacific); the historic Beach Chalet and brewpub (where Golden Gate Park meets the Pacific Ocean); Louis' Diner (the best panoramic ocean view diner in SF); and the Sutro Baths and Fort Miley hiking trails ... all within easy walking from my house!

Here's what to expect:
1) Private, secure, well lit entry through my garage. Come and go as you wish; you have the key.
2) Queen-size bed with plush pillows, down comforter and quilt
3) Small private bathroom (toilet, sink, shower stall), fresh towels, soap and shampoo.
4) Wet bar with mini fridge and small dining table; electric water kettle, french press, coffee and teas, coffee creamer, milk, yogurt, orange juice and muesli/granola. There is no cooking permitted in the studio. You are welcome to use my kitchen (upstairs) whenever I am home.
5) Living room with sofa, chaise, armchair & ottoman, 46" flat screen HD TV, Comcast Cable.
6) Wireless, high speed internet.
7) Deck / patio with table for 2 and small garden.
8) Street parking - Free.
9) Bus lines within easy walking distance to Union Square, The Ferry Building/Fisherman's Wharf and Downtown.
10) 24 hr. Safeway Grocery Store - walking distance.

This beautiful part of San Francisco is called Lands End; we are on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. The house was built by Adolf Sutro as one of his guest cottages. The ruins of his mansion are 3 blocks away in beautiful Sutro Park overlooking the Sutro Baths and the blue Pacific. Explore the Baths and the hiking trails along the Pacific Ocean with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, ride bikes in Golden Gate Park, surf the famed Ocean Beach break, hop on a bus and check out North Beach, Union Square, the Ferry Building or just put your feet up and relax in a quiet SF beach neighborhood.
Come out and stay on the Left Coast, literally.

Quiet residential neighborhood filled with people who love living near the beach. Bonus: the close proximity to Lands End and the fabulous trails that skirt the bluffs above the sea. Easy access to / from both north and south of the city.

2 and 3 blocks from 3 separate bus lines. Easy

Guests enter and exit the private studio via my garage. My guests have their own set of keys to both the garage door and the studio door. There is a deck / patio in the back of the house my guests are encouraged to enjoy.

I invite you to interact with me as much or as little as you would like! The studio apt is on the lower level of my home, and I work from home. I enjoy getting to know my guests, offering ideas and suggestions of things to do, places to go, etc .... or stay out of the way and offer as much privacy as my guests desire.

Usually, free street parking is available directly in front of my house.

Laurie is an absolutely perfect host. She is a glimpse of the love you will feel for the city when your feet hit the street! I was surprised at how big the space was actually. Bed was super comfortable, large sitting area as living room, ample closet space, dresser space. Bathroom was functional. Small kitchen space was just what we needed. Beautiful neighborhood, easily accessible to major hot spots. Her hospitality was extremely appreciated.

Awesome stay at Laurie's place, made a first time trip to San Fran a breeze! Short car ride to just about anywhere in the city, and Laurie is one of the most enthusiastic and charismatic hosts we've ever stayed with. Thanks again for a great trip to SF!

Laurie is a compassionate and delightful host, her hospitality is top-notch. The studio is a wonderful, full of life, and comfortable space. It is in close proximity to the beautiful Ocean Beach, Lands End, Sutro Bath ruins, Coastal Trail, Cliff House, Louis' restaurant, public transportation, and additional places; it is a gift to be this close. Lyft is responsive within a few minutes and public transportation allows accessible movement throughout the City. Laurie’s location is ideal, which we highly recommended for your future stay in San Francisco.

Laurie's place is lovely! The studio is very near the beach (exactly what we wanted) and super cute. Laurie is an amazing host who was very communicative and ready to provide recommendations/ assistance whenever needed. She even provided freshly baked chocolate chip cookies at check in! We would absolutely stay again!

We had the best time at Laurie's place! The location was perfect for us as we were steps from the ocean, the Cliff House, Lands End and the grocery store! Her place is well-kept, clean and comfortable. Her pictures are an accurate description! Laurie was such a gracious host! She even had beer and wine waiting for us! If we make it back to SF we would definitely stay there again! Thank you, Laurie ! We will sing your praises to anyone headed your way!
