ABOUT THE SPACE
This cozy, private apartment is located in the heart of San Francisco’s historic Mission District literally at the intersection of the hip Valencia street corridor and the culturally rich 24th street corridor. This is the real San Francisco and you've got the apartment all to yourself! 2 blocks to BART, walking distance to the best culture, food, drink, and nightlife in the city.
FOR SILICON VALLEY BUS RIDERS: We're at the closest bus stop to SV that is in a happening part of town.
ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Here's a -partial- list of what you'll find within 1 block of the apartment:
• Arizmendi Bakery - A true gem. This worker owned bakery opens at 7am with lines out the door. Eat their blueberry scones and die happy. Have their famous daily pizza and you will already be in heaven!
• Valencia Farmer’s Market - a fantastic small market with great organic and regular vegetables and all the staples
• Fiore Caffe - Italian espresso café by day in a super-hip environment, dinner plates like Pappardelle Al Salmone by night!
• La Traviatta (2 blocks away) is an island of calm and perfectly served Italian dishes on Mission Street. Famous for seating opera legends old and new
• Papalote Mexican Grill - I would tell you that it is the best local taqueria but rivalries run deep among the many local burrito houses
• Muddy’s Coffee House - A great local coffee dive: open early and open late!
• Gypsy Honeymoon - Find unique treasures and antiques
• Campfire Gallery - A super hip art gallery that just opened in 2013
• Yoga Tree - Bring your yoga mat to this serene temple of yoga. I recommend getting their intro pass for your stay: 3 classes for $20!
This is a busy neighborhood day and night, light sleepers might want to bring earplugs or take some from my stash.
The Valencia street corridor boasts some of the city’s best culinary delights. It honestly has too many places for me to list but some favorites include Boogaloo’s for breakfast, Range for lunch, and Garçon for dinner. It's a very hip and comfortable place to stroll. And you -must- check out 826 Valencia, San Francisco's best independently owned and operated pirate store!
The 24th Street corridor has terrific cultural diversity and food. Be sure to look for the famous Precita Eyes murals!
The BART subway is just 2 blocks away and several bus lines are nearby.
At the gas station just across the street you can rent cars by the hour with the three major carsharing companies: Zipcar, City CarShare and Getaround. Consider signing up for one of these services before your visit. Try using Uber or Lyft as an alternative to a taxi.
Parking a car in the area is very tight during the week, parking is easier on the weekends. A paid lot is 4 blocks away.

Lee's place was in a perfect location and was a gem of an apartment in the middle of the bustling mission district! He was very hands on and it was super easy to check in etc! Would definitely stay there again! He also left a ton of refreshing beverages in the fridge and a nice list of recommended spots to visit in the neighborhood which was a nice touch!
Staying at Lee's was fantastically easy! He was super attentive, left lots of helpful tips about the neighborhood, and the apartment was great for my weekend in SF. I'd definitely stay with Lee again :)
Great location, super easy rental process, lovely space!
Lee was so nice and easy to communicate with! He got in contact early and double checked everything as the stay came closer. He went out of his way to meet us at the place to hand over the keys, make sure we knew where everything was, and give us advice about the area.
The place is great. It is the perfect location for being touristy on Valencia and being close to Bart to run around much of the rest of SF. Comfy bed, bathtub with plenty of hot water, perfect light. I would absolutely stay here again.
It is a little loud - older building, so you can hear neighbors moving around ( but no one was having a loud party or anything!) and you can hear street noise. But earplugs make it all better, and Lee left some out for guests.
Excellent location close to Bart and all the diverse activities that Mission offers. It was super easy communicating with Lee. He is a great host. I'd highly recommend this place to a friend.
Lee was great and very welcoming. The photos referenced the space perfectly. The inside had a comfortable queen size bed and desk with desk chair. The area was so great as it was close to Bart and awesome restaurants and bars. Sadly there is a lot of noise that continues late into the evening. If your not sensitive to noise that space can not be beat for the price.
Exactly as expected. Had a wonderful stay and will be back for sure.
Apartment was cozy for a couple; clean, spacy, comfortable bad, and on top of all - at an excellent location (we just fell in love with Valencia st.!)
Lee went out of his way to help us with recommendations and tips to make us get the best out of our visit.
The only downside about the place was that being situated in a busy spot, it keeps noisy until late at night, but I guess that is something you tolerate if you want to stay at a lively location of town.
My wife and I would love to stay here again on our next visit to SF!
Location was great easy walk to lots of good restaurants and transportation . The loft was light and airy. Picking up and returning the key was easy and cleaver. As a host you were very friendly and helpful.
Lee was a great host. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and very inviting -- just as advertised. He made sure to anticipate any and all questions I had before my arrival, which I found very helpful and made planning for my stay stress free. The location is perfect. I would definitely stay here again!
