This quaint Garden Space is located in the heart of San Francisco's Mission district. To quote the Michelin guide, "The sun always shines in the Mission, a bohemian paradise dotted with palm trees, and home to artists, activists and a vibrant Latino community. Graffiti murals line the walls of funky galleries, thrift shops and bookstores; and sidewalk stands bursts with Mexican plantains, nopales, and the juiciest limes this side of the border"! Just one or two blocks away, you will find bus lines (the 27 and the 9) that will take you any where in the city, BART is just a 12 minute walk.
You will also find many wonderful ethnic and trendy restaurants, cool coffee shops, bars, shops and galleries within a few blocks.
The Space is in the back of the house. It has no kitchen per say but we do provide one hotplate, a microwave, a coffee maker and a mini refrigerator. (complementary coffee and tea) for minimal cooking. The bathroom has a bathtub, small sink and toilet. The loft has a Queen size bed, a desk, a dresser, and a TV/VCR for entertainment. We can provide a pack and play upon request. We provide towels and sheets.
For your enjoyment we have a large selection of records with player that we hope you will enjoy as much as we do.

We had a wonderful week long stay at the cottage of Jim and Carolyn. At check-in we were warmly greeted and given maps of the area which Jim had just printed off for us. Our daughter lives right in the vicinity of our cottage so she was pretty much our go-to person for showing us around however Carolyn also offered to give us a driving tour. Their recommendations for food were spot on! I would return here in a heart beat. Their guest book was filled with notes from many travelers all over the US, countries abroad and Canada. No need to do any cooking as there are wonderful restaurants so close by! So, pull up a good book, a glass of wine or cup of coffee and have a rest on your private patio after site seeing and before heading out again for the evening. Enjoy!
Jim, Carolyn and their place exceeded all our expectations and set the foundations for what turned out to be an amazing long weekend in SF. The place is great, location ideal. Couldn't recommend it more. Would go back tomorrow!
We had a great time staying in the Garden Space. We definitely felt very welcome. When we arrived we were greeted by Jim who gave us plenty of information about the area. The space had everything we could have wanted. Very cool neighborhood with many murals. I really enjoyed the collection of books as well.
Jim & Carolyn sont des hôtes chaleureux, accueillants et vraiment disponibles: Jim était la pour nous accueillir a notre arrivée et a pris la peine de nous donner de bons conseils sur le quartier et la ville de San Francisco, et Carolyn nous a gentiment fait visiter la ville une matinée!
L'appartement est exactement comme sur les photos: beau, spacieux, propre et très atypique! On s'y sent comme chez soi!
Très bonne expérience Airbnb: je recommande a 100%!!!
The reservation was canceled 53 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a wonderful time staying with Jim and Carolyn! They have a beautiful flat separate from their main apartment, right in the heart of the Mission. Both Jim and Carolyn were very helpful with tips about things to do in the city, places to eat, and which trains/buses to take. Also their dog Timmy is the cutest. Would stay again!
We loved the place! Jim & Carolyn had great suggestions for restaurants and walks. The place was super comfortable and very accommodating. We definitely recommend staying there!
My wife and I are in our early fifties, but "they" say fifty is the new thirty! We have lived in the Mission for 20 years and we love it. Beside having fun raising our 16 year old son, traveling is one of our favorite things to do so we love to host! So far, Peru and Europe have been our favorite destinations! We love music, the arts, the great outdoors and food, so we have plenty of suggestions to guide you through this great City.
Forgot to mention, my wife Carolyn is a french native. Si vous avez un probleme en anglais elle pourra tout vous expliquer en Francais!
