Lovely and cozy private Room

Apartment - Private room · Pretor Way, San Francisco, CA 94112, United States

This is a lovely, comfortable, and cozy private bedroom in a three bedrooms apartment. Kitchen and living room are fully furnished. It is great for staying over for your vacation or spending time exploring the city.

The Space

It is located in San Francisco in-between the Outer Mission and Crocker Amazon districts near Mission Street. Though the street and the area is very quiet .
If you are coming by public transit from SFO, you can take bart and get off at the Balboa Park Bart Station. My apartment is about 1.1 mile away from the Bart station, and you can do a combination of short walks and short buses trips, or just take the 88 BART SHUTTLE bus. There is a No.-14 bus stop that is few minutes walking on Mission St, which can get you to straight to downtown through Mission St. I would recommend taking Bus-14X (express) - it is much faster. Also No43 Masonic bus route is few blocks away on Curtis St and Prague St.

The Room:
This is a private room. The room has two twin size beds and require key entry, so you would have your privacy and for security purpose. Good location for public transportation and easy access to freeway if you are driving. The living room is fully furnished with sofas and a TV with a Vizio box connected(so you can login/logout to your content on (website hidden)Play, Netflix, Amazon, etc..). The apartment is geared with a 55Mbps WIFI.

Dining and Nearby:
The kitchen is open if you would like to cook. Cooking ware(pots, pans, oven, microwave) are available if you are ready :). These are also near by on Mission St:
- McDonald is two blocks away on Mission St.
- A taco and burrito restaurant is also two blocks away on Mission St.
- A Bakery shop
- A Chinese café and deli
- Chick-n-Deli where you can create your own sandwiches
- Quickly - for snack and variety of drinks
- Few other Mexican food restaurants nearby (Taqueria Reina's)
- Guzman's Produce for fruits and groceries - 4 to 5 blocks walking.
- There are plenty more variety near Geneva and Mission intersection: pizza, Vietnamese pho, pop-eye, bars, etc...

Public transit, Driving, and Directions:
From SFO to here is about 18 minutes driving. If you want to go downtown, freeway 280 is nearby for driving. Or you can take #14 bus will get you to downtown, and I would recommend taking the #14X express - it is much faster. Or you can take BART at Balboa Bart Station which takes around 10 minutes to downtown - you can walk or combine with short bus trips, or take 88 BART SHUTTLE to the Balboa Bart (email hidden) & Guttenberg St.

Street Cars/Rail Lines(M, J, F, and K lines) are available at the Balboa Bart Station as well.

Also on driving:
-9 minutes driving to City College of San Francisco

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed at Brandons Appartment for a weekend during winter. There was no one else, so we had the apartment to ourselves, which was quite nice.
    The roome was small, but it was enough room for us two and our luggage. The two twin beds were very comfy.
    unfortunately when we arrived, the bathroom was a little bit dirty.
    The rest of the apartment was nice and the communication with brandon was very good and quick, which was a pro as we arrived just after he decided to rent the room to us.
    I would definately stay at his place again.

  • Se trata de un apartamento con 3 habitaciones. Son habitaciones muy sencillas.
    El lugar es algo lejano al centro de San Francisco, pero hay buena combinación de autobuses.
    Si vas con coche, puedes tener algún problema para encontrar aparcamiento.
    Si volviese a San Francisco, probablemente buscaría algún lugar mas cercano al centro.
    He de decir que mi experiencia es positiva, y la comunicación con Brandon Chan ha sido buena y fluida.

  • We had a great stay at Brandon's space... We did not meet him, but the communications was good and the check in and check out worked out perfectly :) the place was save, clean and had all we needed!! I would stay there again :)

  • Staying at Brandon's was good. It's no palace but it's clean and has all the required comforts.
    He also had a nice setup for us to be able to arrive at anytime and get in by ourselves, very flexible.

  • We have stayed in two of Brandon's apartments, although we didn't meet him face to face he was really nice and helpful with everything we've asked him. This was the second room we stayed in, we liked the first room better but this one was also nice, there were clean towels and kitchen facilities. The showers and toilets were less clean than the first apartment but this could be due to the people who stayed with us at the same time. Good value for money and we would come back.
