About this listing
FREE UNDERCOVER PARKING and I only rent the place out when I'm gone on work travel.
Little 1 bedroom located between Hayes Valley and Alamo Square. Perfect for date night at the Opera/Symphony/Civic Center.
The place includes a pullout couch, a nice tempurpedic queen size bed with feather comforter, an extremely large double door mirror in the bedroom (It's helpful for getting ready for a night out) a large flat screen connected to a Wii with Netflix for staying in, the tub-shower has shockingly good water pressure for being an older building, really quiet so no noisy neighbors. There is a coin operated washer/dryer on the first floor and I always keep quarters on my desk if you need to clean something :).
The biggest value add is the location; walking distance to the Symphony/Civic Center/Opera (as close as you can get before you start getting into the projects), all the great dinner/brunch spots of Hayes Valley, Lower Haight is a 5 minute walk away, Divisadero is on the other side of Alamo park and right down the street from the famous painted ladies. Also, one of the few spots in the city that stays sunning pretty consistently, the apartment itself is furnished with some fun stuff from my travels but for the most part its what you would expect from a 28 year old workaholic who's traveling 2 weeks out of the month. I'm always open to help out of towners with suggestions of restaurants, touristy things to do, places to see so if you pick this place you'll get a built in tour guide (if you want it of course :) )
Interaction with Guests
I only rent the place out when I'm not there, which is about half the month. I'm always available to chat on the phone and will gladly offer advice and fun things to do in the area through messages.
The neighbors are exceptional, if you want the feel of staying in a locals neighborhood in SF this is the place to be.
Bus stop is right on the corner of Webster and Grove so transportation is really easy.
Other Things to Note
Free Parking Spot in my covered garage directly underneath my place
No pets unfortunately, I don't smoke but 420 friendly
I stayed at Edward's place in Hayes Valley over a weekend in July. He provided great details of how to get there and what to do in the area. The place was comfortable and he provided towels and extra blankets. The apartment was a little dark, but it was not a problem as I just needed it as a place to sleep. Overall, good experience.
The apartment was very nice, clean, and just as described. The neighborhood is wonderful, and it's on a quiet street.
The neighborhood is really good, I felt very comfortable in Hayes St. Edward was very helpful and made sure I had everything I need, with very good tips on where to eat around. The house is exactly as shows the pictures, It was clean when I arrived and you can expect what a "single guy living alone" house can provide you.
Edward's place is in a great location: one block from Alamo Sq and walking distance to restaurants etc on Hayes st. The place itself is a little dark because it's at the back of the apartment complex, so I would recommend it more for a place to be based in instead to spend a lot of time inside, but it was clean and satisfactory. I had no problem with neighborly noise or getting into the building, and having parking included is a big plus! Thanks.
The listing was accurate and looked just like the pictures. Edward provided detailed instructions on how to get in to his apartment and the check out procedure. The place worked our really well for my co-worker and me as he had a pull out couch to sleep 2 people comfortably in separate rooms. Great shower pressure too.
On a positive note, though we didn't meet him, Edward seemed like a nice guy and was very responsive through email and texts and the neighborhood was great. But we were disappointed in the accommodations. While the bed was comfortable and the shower pressure excellent, the apt was not clean (nor were there basic cleaning supplies like dish soap or bathrm cleanser available). There wasn't any cleared dresser or closet space for us to put our belongings Also, we're morning coffee drinkers so not having a coffee maker was an inconvenience.
The place is a great location. Parking is awesome to use in the city! Comfortable place. Instructions for getting into place are clear and Edward was very quick and attentive with any questions.
