About this listing
A spacious studio on the lower floor (first floor) of this elevated 1899 beautifully restored San Francisco Victorian classic. Bursting with amenities, this studio begs to pamper the independent traveler or couple. With a plush queen-sized bed and separate sleeper sofa, the studio sleeps up to 3.
Bay windows give both plenty of natural light and privacy while overlooking a small front garden. In addition to a spacious and luxurious bathroom with classic claw foot tub, the studio is fully loaded with a new washer, dryer, dishwasher, toaster, microwave and satellite television. Wi-fi is also included.
Ideal for gourmands, the kitchen is fully loaded with a six-burner gas range & stove, a temperature-controlled wine cooler, and a new refrigerator. Bring back fresh produce from any of the many local farmers' markets, and share a meal with friends to experience another of San Francisco's treasures -- its palette.
At the heart of the City, you're steps from Dolores Park, surrounded by classic San Francisco architecture, the last of the independent theaters, local artists, some of the best food in the USA, and the easiest place to catch a bus, train or taxi in SF.
**The Studio has its own private entrance and does not share any common space with the upper flat. The whole lower level flat is part of the Studio and does not share anything with upper flat.
The Studio guest has access to the front yard and the whole lower level including the hallway which is part of the studio, nothing is shared with the upper flat.
Interaction with Guests
I try to be active in meeting guests for them to check in, however, there is also a lockbox for self check in in case I am not available or out of town. The housekeeper can also be contacted for any issues.
Very local feel with great restaurants, cafes, and bars, Dolores Park on a nice sunny afternoon, Bi-Rite grocery and ice creamery, The Castro, Castro Theatre...... There are too many good things about the neighborhood, the list can be endless.
BART and Muni are within walking (website hidden)

- location in Castro near bus and MUNI,
- cosy studio,
- comfortable bed
- washing and drying machines
- no clean up of the room before we arrive at 4.00 pm, e.g we had to remove bins and clean the bathroom by ourselves;
- the owner never answered our SMS and phone messages to get the room cleaned;
- windows and floors were very very dirty,
- the street is very noisy and there no isolation of the window. You also here everything that is happening on the upper floor (tv, discussions...)
- the house should be renovated
To conclude: we had globally a good time because of the location, but the very high price is not aligned with the service quality needed.
Unfortunately, the housekeeper had mixed up the dates for the cleaning. she did arrive to clean the Studio later. Your perception of the flat was based on the fact that the flat was not ready when you arrived. I did message you that I would be in Africa during your stay. I did receive your message and contacted the housekeeper immediately. The home is located on 18th St. which is one of the favorite streets of San Francisco locals. You can walk to many restaurants, cafes, bars, boutique stores. Noise level is not something that is out of the ordinary in San Francisco on this street. It's San Francisco on a great street! I don't know what you mean when you say "..there is no isolation on the window." This is an 1899 Victorian home, so I'm not sure if they thought about "isolation on the window" back then. The house is cleaned to the highest standards. Also this 1899 home was recently renovated with the highest of quality. The Studio has architectural detail and there are brand new hardwood floors, tiles in the bathroom. Again, your first impression was left from the Studio not being ready upon your arrival. I am currently speaking to another professional company through Airbnb that will provide all the cleaning, maintenance, and 24 concierge for any unexpected problems such as in the case with you.
Overall, the place was pretty great, the only thing lacking was the bedding--but overall that's a minor thing.
The pictures represent what you'll find, and although parking is on the street, you can park 7p - 10a without having to move. Perfectly fine for me.
One nice thing about this place is that you're only a 15 minute walk from weird food on Mission Street. I even walked all the way to Sightglass on 20th. Very convenient location.
Awesome studio - great location, very comfortable, great kitchen. No issues at all. Navin was very responsive and even checked-in from Africa to make sure things were going well. Excellent option for all.
Beautiful little studio in the heart of San Francisco. The place was clean and very modern. Navi's instructions were very clear and I had a great time. I would consider staying again.
A lovely stay in the Mission district, a touch of quiet in a hectic start up city. Lots of fun had, with Bi-rite ice creamery only a block away.
Excellent apartment in a beautiful neighborhood. Very responsive when booking.
