About This Listing
BEST location in the city! Our sunny, relaxed three bedroom apartment is just two blocks from Dolores Park and public transportation. The room is small but has a comfortable queen bed and gets nice morning sun. You will be sharing the apt with 2 friends who love this city. We love to travel, run, hike, and cook. Let us know if you need help planning your itinerary!
What makes this space great is that not only is it located in the best part of the city (between Mission, Castro, Noe Valley, Lower Haight, Hayes - hip areas with lots of character), but it's on a quiet part so you can still get a good night's sleep!
You will have a private room which includes a queen size bed big enough for two, a closet, a night stand and a chair.
Full bathroom and 1 toilet room is shared with two respectful and clean roommates.
You will have full access to the kitchen, living room, free in-unit laundry, and backyard. There is also free wifi. Towels, linens, shampoo and shower gel will be provided.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy interacting with our guests, but we have full time jobs and active lives outside the house too. We are always a phone call away if you need any help!
The sunniest part of the city, diverse and creative people from all around the world, neighborhood organic markets, hip restaurants/bars, cool cafes, extremely central location, good public transportation... are just some of the many, many things we like about Mission Dolores!
Extremely convenient - 4 blocks from BART, 1-2 blocks from major Muni (trolley line) and bus lines. Ask anyone local and they know it's the best location in town!
Other Things to Note
We have deliberately set the price low because we are avid travelers too and we don't believe in charging hotel prices :)
Also, the apt is not fancy. Please don't expect hotel quality amenities, but we do have all the basics.
IMPORTANT: since we have full-time jobs, if you plan to arrive Monday-Friday, we will not be able to give you keys between 8am-6pm. We can direct you to a nearby cafe, restaurant or bookstore to wait for a bit.
- No smoking (of any kind) in the house
- Please tell us when you expect to arrive, and arrive on time!
It was lovely staying with Melissa and Vanessia. The location is really great - just as described, it's in all of the right places and you can get around SF really easily from their apartment. We had wardrobe space, use of the kitchen and a great bathroom. Overall, we'll definitely stay again when we're next visiting San Francisco.
We stayed at Melissa's and Vanessia's place for three full days and we had an amazing time. We got along really well, got numerous tips for bars, restaurants and had nice little chats. We can definitely recommend this place to stay. The neighbourhood is charming and we loved the spanish influence - having so many taco places around. Also asian food was available and delicious. The bed was really comfortable :) In overall just a great time!
Great place to stay in the Mission to get to know the real SF! And no tourists either ;) The girls were so friendly and helpful and really made me feel at home! If you like running you should run up to Twin Peaks to enjoy the amazing view! Had a great couple of days and would love to come back some day!
Melissa & Vanessia were great hosts - welcoming and friendly. The apartment was spacious and very clean. Plus it is in a great neighbourhood with lots to do within walking distance and very easy reach of public transport. We had a wonderful stay!
It was the first time we used Airbnb, and we could not have been happier with the experience. Thank you girls!
M & V are great hosts. Very accomodating, friendly, smart, and understanding. I was late arriving due to plane stuff, and M&V did everything they could to insure I got in OK. Apartment location is perfect, steps away from the J Church, the 22, and the nexus of transportation options that is Church/ Market. Don't know anything about parking since I didn't have a car and didn't need one. Walking distance to the Valencia street corridor - so the location is perfect for getting around. There is a bit of noise generated by the train and bus, but after one night I was accustomedto it and it wasn't a problem. Thanks for a great visit!
Our stay at Melissa and Vanessia's flat was wonderful. Both were fun, helpful and had a great knowledge of San Francisco. The room is light, with good storage and a very comfy bed and we had full use of their kitchen, washer and dryer. Situated in the Mission and near to the Castro, there are many good places to eat and drink on your doorstep and given it's perfect location to public transport, it is very easy to reach different parts of the city. We would absolutely stay here again - if only we could have stayed longer!
About the Host, Melissa&Vanessia
We are two friends in our early 30s who love to travel, play sports (run, bike, swim, soccer, snowboard), and get together with friends. Between the two of us, we have gone to 10 countries in the past year, and had our fair share of great Airbnb experience. Professionally, one is in real estate and the other in tech. We are clean without being OCD, respectful without being formal. Hope to meet you in person!
