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.

So this was my first AirBnB experience, my first trip to SF, and it was also our honeymoon... And Laurie made it awesome! First and foremost, the space itself is fantastic. It is cozy, well decorated, and she is only a stairway away if anything is needed. Laurie responds quickly to texts, and she checked in after our first night to make sure everything was okay. She knew it was our honeymoon, so she had champagne chilling for us upon our arrival. Also, my profile picture is a selfie with me and Minnie Mouse, so she made sure to add a special Disney welcoming touch! Laurie is such a sweet woman, and her positive attitude, cleanliness, hospitality, and overall demeanor really set a positive tone for our honeymoon. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank her and encourage whomever decides to stay in SF to check out Laurie's space first.

Laurie was an excellent hostess! She made us feel very welcome in her home. The space was clean, quiet, and well furnished. We were able to walk to Golden gate park easily and the beach was only a few blocks away. Laurie provided a book filled with tips from previous guests that we found invaluable. We had a great stay and hope to come back someday!

Laurie's place is amazing! I would recommend it if you want a quiet stay in San Francisco. Her place is so warm and cosy we just felt like putting our feet up and relaxing. She has so many little touches that make it a super place to stay, she loves to airbnb and she loves San Francisco and it shows! The studio is close to the ocean and has two main bus routes within a short walking distance that take you straight into the heart of the city. I would definitely stay here again!

Laurie's place was absolutely amazing. It had everything we needed. Uber an easy ride into the City to sight see. Beach was great. Easy drive to bridge. Laurie's communication was excellent and she was very helpful in suggestions and tips for things to do. She was very accommodating and deserves the honor of super host. Would definitely stay with her again.

I LOVE San Francisco!! I mean, I am IN LOVE with San Francisco!
I am not a native, but I have adopted this city as my own, and proudly call her my home.
Every time I drive, bicycle or run across the Golden Gate Bridge it feels like its the first time - it never gets old. The ever-changing weather makes for amazing ever-changing views and vistas. San Francisco is filled with great restaurants, bars, coffee shops and cafes, music venues, museums, parks, festivals, diverse neighborhoods, shopping and outdoor recreational opportunities. I feel incredibly fortunate to live at the beach, at Land’s End, yet still be just minutes away from the vibrant pulse of this city. Airbnb allows me to share all this with my guests from around the world -- Welcome!
