About This Listing
Huge one-bedroom flat located on one of the cutest, most happening blocks in the Mission. Open floor plan, eat-in kitchen with new appliances and french doors leading to a giant, sunny backyard. New plumbing and free washer/dryer.
Not only is this place on one of the hottest blocks in the Mission, but it is a very unique San Francisco home. The huge (1000sf) flat is one of two units in a Victorian building dating back to 1900, however, the interior feels very modern and has all new plumbing, electrical, heating, and appliances. Outdoor space is a rare and beautiful thing in San Francisco, but in this place you can happily sip your coffee just through the french doors leading out of the kitchen to the sunny backyard.
The wonderful qualities of the hip, sunny Mission District are well known. This part of 20th Street is particularly special - you can get your fill of food, drink, and culture without venturing off the block.
The flat is adjacent to the Atlas Cafe - a cozy neighborhood spot with a sunny backyard, well-priced food and bi-weekly music nights. Across the street are: Southern Exposure - one of SF's premiere alternative art galleries; Trick Dog, one of the hottest cocktail bars in town with award-winning food to boot; the acclaimed Central Kitchen restaurant; and the Salumeria deli, purveyor of fine meats, cheeses and other delicious treats. Within a few blocks are more of SF's destination restaurants, the city's most popular rock-climbing gym, more arts venues, and maker spots including local favorite Heath Ceramics with its in-store Blue Bottle Cafe.
This part of the Mission, while close to the carnival of Valencia Street, has a distinct, more local, more edgy vibe. This block has a new Sightglass Coffee, a new bar/restaurant and more tech offices under construction as I write. Come watch the transformation of one of SF's hottest locations unfold. Also, unlike most of the Mission, there's easy street parking!
Easy access to BART,MUNI, and HWYs 280 and 101! 16th Street and 24th Street BART Stations are both walking distance. There is a MUNI stop with buses headed to SoMa downtown one block away, including at least one bus that leads directly downtown.
My friend and I had a truly wonderful time staying in Laura's apartment. The place is bigger than it appears in photos and was clean and tidy when we arrived. It's in a quieter area of the Mission near a bunch of nice coffee shops and restaurants, but still only a ten or fifteen minute walk from the main streets/ BART station/ grocery store. Laura made sure to stay in touch with us throughout our visit to make sure we had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked and the bed + red daybed were very comfy. Thank you, Laura!
Great flat in an excellent location. Light and roomy. Comprehensive and helpful information from the host. Recommended!
Every thing was great, beautiful and comfortable!!, the previous information you sent was accurate, the apartment was clean and its in a great location. The kitchen had all we need. And it was nice to find some maps that help us a lot (by the way sorry for the use we gave them!!)
The listing description was accurate and in fact the Apartment is a very lovely space which isn't quite fully captured in the pictures. It is a very pleasant ambient space and large enough to accommodate a Family of four for a few nights. Laura is a great host - we didn't meet her but by email she was very communicative and helpful. She really went out of her way to assist and be flexible with small things useful to enhance our Holiday.
We could not have asked for a better place to stay on our visit to San Francisco! Laura was very friendly and easy to communicate with. The flat was fantastic - tons of space, and in a very cute neighborhood convenient to BART as well as cafes, and restaurants. The weather was beautiful and sunny during our weekend and it was great to take advantage of the garden patio. We would absolutely love to stay here again on our next San Francisco trip. Laura, thank you for making our first AirBnB stay so wonderful!!
We stayed at Laura's flat for 3.5 weeks. The space was lovely and much larger than depicted in the images. We traveled with our 6-month son and it was a very child-friendly apartment. The location was fantastic with plenty of amazing restaurants and cafe's nearby. Laura was a wonderful host and very accessible to answer questions.
The only negative (which is beyond the host's control) was the amount of noise generated from the upstairs neighbours, the next door cafe and a nearby rooster. As a light sleeper this is information I would want to pass on to others to help with their decision-making.
Laura's flat was great! The location was awesome, with so many restaurants and a coffee shop next door and across the street! The flat was very clean! Laura didn't have many personal items there, so it felt like we were living there! There were plenty of clean towels for us. The bedroom is nice and dark! Yet the flat is very sunny! We had our 14 month old with us and she loved walking around with all the space. I loved being able to sit out side and enjoy the sun while my daughter took a nap. We would stay here again! Thank you Laura for making our trip to SF so easy!
About the Host, Laura
A Native Californian who's called the Bay Area home for about 5 years. I love exploring cities around the world, but none so much as San Francisco. One of my favorite things about my adopted home town is how easy it is to reach the gorgeous mountains, rivers, forests, and beaches surrounding it for hiking, biking, skiing and more.
