This one bedroom is normally used as a live in work space. It has a brand new kitchen and cozy dinning nook which, like the king size bedroom offers a stunning view of downtown, the Bay Bridge, Berkeley, Oakland, all the way to Fremont. We are nestled in a park-speckled hillside featuring wooden staircases and whimsical architecture overlooking Mission and Noe Valley. Close to Bart, Muni, and bus lines, this is just the place you want to experience San Francisco; overlooking it all, yet close to nature. You may see raccoon, opossum, hawks, skunks, humming birds, and even wild parrots around this little known canyon area of San Francisco. Expect to find parking easily on our street with no permit required.
The apartment was perfect! Very comfortable and well located. Shops, restaurants and public transport were a short walk down the hills. Huge, comfortable bed, and we could watch the sun come up over the city. Absolutely amazing view from the windows! No problems with parking, and the neighborhood was quiet and safe. We were here for several weeks while on a work contract, and if we return to San Francisco this will definitely be our first choice for another stay!
We had a wonderful stay at Jay's apt. The view of course is splendid and the kitchen is very modern. My wife loved the two chair dining table. Parking is also real easy I never had to drive around. We would definitely be coming back here in the future.
The location was perfect with access to local amenities and proximity to the BART. The view overlooking the entire city was breathtaking and created an ever-changing vista with time of day/weather changes. Would definitely stay again.
I had a great stay! The view of downtown is amazing. Glen Park is a quiet neighbourhood with its own mini-center around Glen Park BART station. You will find local market, few pubs and restaurants there. You MUST visit Higher Grounds Coffee House for a brunch - french toasts were my ultimate "guilty pleasure".
Although the area is hilly, you should walk around to see nice places around. Some views are breath-taking. Definitely check out Glen Canyon Park and Twin Peaks.
John is friendly guy, he used to be a couch surfer too. Overall he was very responsive to my requests. Good internet speed and the place was quiet and comfortable during my stay == satisfaction :)
John was a very gracious and responsive host. The apartment was quiet and private, with an excellent kitchen. Parking was never hard to find - usually right across the street. Public transportation is nearby (the J Church train, or the Glen Park BART station to downtown or SFO airport), but a steep climb. It's worth it, though, for the marvelous view!
John's apartment is in a great neighborhood. It is definitely safe to walk around in (good exercise, too, as it is quite hilly) and has several quaint restaurants within walking distance. The place itself has everything you might need, as well as the fantastic view, which the pictures don't do justice for. Viewing the city lights at night from the hills of Glen Park was definitely a treat. John and his family were very nice- very accessible for questions, otherwise you would never know that they were in the apartment upstairs- they were very quiet and respectful.
I had a wonderful stay. The apartment is beautiful, with a spectacular view of the city. The host, John, was always available when I had any questions and he created an extremely comfortable enviroment. I wouldn't hesitate staying again!
