The bistro table & two chairs near large, sunny windows provides the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

The Building Location: The apartment is on a quiet street and off-street side of building overlooking a small courtyard with bamboo (you may hear the soothing sounds of the fog horn).
There are 2 short flights of stairs and no elevator to access this top-floor apartment (no noise from upstairs neighbors) in a small 4-unit building.
This is an ideal space for a couple or one person (no more than two guests please) who are willing to treat my home and neighbors with respect as if they live here.
Hangers on over-the-door hooks are provided for hanging clothes as well as ottomans to hold your luggage. Please note no drawer space or closet space is provided for short stays of less than 7 days.
The apartment is very clean and a Dyson 'Animal' vacuum is used but please be advised I am a dog-owner. If you are highly allergic, you may want to select another listing. And if you don't like dogs, please select another listing…all of my neighbors have friendly dogs and you may see them in the hallway.
Interaction with Guests
I am happy to provide you with transportation options from the airport, dining recommendations, information on cultural attractions (museums, symphony, opera, ballet) and anything else you need to plan the perfect stay in San Francisco!
No parking included. Street parking can be difficult during the week in our neighborhood, please be prepared to use a nearby pay parking garage.
Other Things to Note
Please note there is no air conditioning in the unit. This is very typical for San Francisco as we may have 4 days per year that would actually justify AC!
Please treat my home and neighbors as if they are your own.
Absolutely no smoking (of any kind) inside the apartment or building.
We appreciate it if you leave your shoes outside the front door.
This is a quiet and friendly small 4-unit bldg with great neighbors, so no parties please.
Please no pets.
Greer's flat was absolutely lovely! It was well laid out and very spacious for a couple on vacation. She had every amenity we could want; from the stocked kitchen to the amazing amount of vanity samples in the bathroom, and everything in between! The bed was very comfortable and her extra touches to make us feel at home were everywhere. We felt completely safe in her little marina neighborhood which was centrally located to many of the famous attractions in SF. We walked through the lovely park just a block away each morning. Greer was very accommodating with plenty of maps and books on the city as well as a personalized house manual to help us make her place our own. What a great experience. Thanks Greer!
Thanks to Greer and her conveniently located place, we had a great time and easily visited many sites in SF and the surrounding area.
Everyone was exceptionally friendly and anything you would need was within a short walk. We didn't need to bring any essentials nor pick up any essentials for cooking etc., because Greer had everything that was needed.
We felt very safe in the neighborhood and even enjoyed a community food truck event on our last night, which made us really feel like locals.
We were especially impressed with the extra special touches she provided to make it feel like home. We were so comfortable, we didn't want to leave.
We will definitely plan to stay at Greer's when we visit SF in the future.
This was the first time we have used Air BnB and couldn't have asked for a better host.
Greer kindly answered our many questions about San Francisco prior to our trip and provided many useful tips that made our stay fantastic.
The accommodation was lovely - a quant, tidy studio apartment in a great location. Greer went out of her way to provide a comfortable and homely experience including a welcome package of wine, breakfast and various snacks as well as brochures and California travel books to read.
A fantastic experience!
Greer was amazing! My roommate and I stayed for two nights and fell in love with San Francisco and all that Greer had to offer. When our flight got delayed she brought us flowers and cupcakes. Truly above and beyond what either of us would have imagined. The place was spotless with a fully stocked fridge, freezer, and plenty of accoutrements for morning oatmeal along with tea and coffee. Beautiful Lacoste towels and even had delicious sea salt caramel chocolates on our pillows. Greers apartment made me want to live in San Francisco....in that very spot! Would go back in a heartbeat. Was really sad to leave. Also great location to soulcycle and chestnut, Lombard and union st. Can't beat this spot!!
Gree's apartment was wonderful. Greer went out of her way and meticulously put together a care package before my arrival, a laundry basket (due to my longer stay), and flowers on the coffee table. The location is also great, close to bus lines, restaurants, and the beach.
I had a wonderful time in the listing and look forward to staying at Gree''s apartment next time I'm in SF!
Greer is the epitome of a perfect Airbnb host! I've always had great experiences on previous trips where I've used Airbnb, but I was blown away with the level of detail and responsiveness from Greer. Her apartment was adorable (not to mention the location in the Marina is hard to beat), and her care and attention to make sure we were settled was unmatched. You will be hard-pressed to find such a wonderful host. I would definitely stay at Greer's again and invite you to go for it, if you are contemplating staying at Greer's during your next trip to San Francisco! A++
We were a young couple staying at Greer's place for 5 days in December 2013 and we absolutely loved everything about our stay!
Greer was fantastic host and helped me with any questions I had about the city, attractions etc... The place was fantastic and we loved staying! Will definitely be back one day and would love to stay again! House was clean, tidy and a great location! Thanks again Greer! If you ever need somewhere to stay in Sydney Australia we can help you out! :-)
Enjoying all that beautiful San Francisco has to offer!
I love this city and am happy to answer any questions you may have or offer recommendations for your visit.
