Hello! Our cute little abode is new to Airbnb!
Our place, located in the up and coming Dogpatch neighborhood is a true gem. The home was built before the 1920s and has quirky, beautiful details that have been maintained for decades, a true historic home.
Our house faces South and has a view of a large portion of the South side of the city. We have a beautiful home and a large home by San Francisco standards- we know its a gem. Access to the backyard is open to whomever stays. I work on the yard regularly and our guests should feel free to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or read a book in the yard. During the summer months it is blasting with light.
Here is a mini description of our neighborhood:
1. You like dogs? So do people in the Dogpatch. Families and young professionals are spotted walking their four legged friends all day. They also play at the local park about a block north of our apartment. On a sunny day enjoy laying out in the park with a coffee, but beware of the clumsy pup chasing a ball who may or may not jump right on top of you, in a cute way of course.
2. Our neighborhood was just featured in December 2012's issue of Travel & Leisure for being so unique. Our hood is tiny- like really tiny- like 9 blocks by 8 blocks, at most. Long ago, it used to be heavily populated with people working out of the shipyards (we are right next to them) and after the shipyards slowly shut down, people moved out. Warehouses moved in. Now, investors are building homes like its their job (it probably is their job) and people are moving in quickly. Businesses are popping up and there is a slow moving art scene creating a presence.
3. It's safe. At night, it's quiet. You can park your car with ease (WIN!). You can walk to the ballpark in 20 minutes and if trying to head downtown for some night time shenanigans, a cab ride is all of 10 bucks. We're close enough, but you don't have to worry about anyone having a raging party outside your window.
4. Do you have some favorite spots in the neighborhood? Oh, don't mind if I do-
Serpentine for an amazing squash salad and glass of vino, or a hamburger if you're feeling simple.
Piccino's, a farm to table establishment that has been making creative and fresh pizzas and salads for some time. They have phenomenal desserts too.
Moshi Moshi, a sushi place four blocks away, has been in the neighborhood since the 90's (and there was nothing in the neighborhood at that time). The owner is a legend and they make fresh, delicious and reasonable sushi.
AT&T Ballpark? Baseball season? We're a mile away. Going to a concert there? Oh, still a mile away.
Mr & Mrs Miscellaneous is a delicious ice cream spot with creative flavors and some staple ice creams. This spot is easily one of the best ice cream spots in the city.
The Bay Bridge, Ferry Building, the Embarcadero- all within walking distance (or running if that's your speed). On a nice Saturday I've been known to run to the Ferry Building (about 2.5-3 miles) and spend the morning buying fresh groceries from the Farmer's Market.
