About this listing
It feels like home away from home. If I were travelling, I would be looking for a place with these amenities. Three blocks from the ocean and yet public transportation is 1 minute away to take you to downtown (25min) transfer to cable car etc.
In such a compact city as San Francisco, space is a luxury, and in this spacious private studio apartment, you get a comfortable and peaceful stay with access to a private kitchen and bathroom! A queen sized bed is provided as well as a sofa bed for 2 extra guests. It can fit up to four people comfortably. It comes with wireless internet service and a color flat screen T.V. and a DVD.
A centralized location, you are a block away from the L Taraval MUNI bus that would take you directly to Downtown San Francisco, where you can visit Union Square among Macy's, Bloomingdales, Nieman Marcus, the Orpheum Theatre with quaint restaurants. It is 2.5 miles from S.F. State University.
Three blocks away from the beach, you can enjoy a hike with a nice view of the ocean, go surfing, or take a quiet stroll along the coast. Driving is 7 minutes to the famous Cliff House and Beach Chalet where you can dine while you watch the beautiful sunset. It is just 5 minutes walking distance to the Java Beach Café, a popular coffee and sandwich shop with free wifi and outdoor seating and the San Francisco Zoo. Within walking distance, you will find a pharmacy, bakery, ethnic restaurants such as Chinese, Japanese, or Thai, post office, supermarket and many other shops.
A piano is available in the apartment, and you may jingle a few tunes as you wish, or if you happen to be a concert pianist, you have the chance to keep up your fingers even while away from home.
Street parking is available 24/7 except for street cleaning once every other week. The laundromat is located six blocks for your convenience.
Please keep the place in its original clean condition, with dishes washed and put away and trash in the bin.

No pets, no smoking, and no drugs! Please just be respectful of your neighbors with your noise level. Before checking out, wash all dishes and clean up all spills and leave place as you found it.
Offstreet parking is available unless it is street cleaning days. If you need a short time loading/unloading lugguages, please park in our driveway only. Please do not park in neighbor's driveway at ALL times.
Towels, Linens and shampoo are provided. We recycle, so paper bags are provided so you could separate plastics, garbage, and glass.
We are in a drought in California, so we don't wash towels daily. But if you require such service, we will be more than happy to comply. Please leave your used towels outside your unit to clean for you.
Please leave shoes in the foyer before entering the carpeted apartment.
Ethernet cable and wireless internet available. Wireless connection is stronger for laptops rather than I-Pads, so bringing a laptop is recommended.
Occasionally I teach music lessons upstairs, so you may hear piano or violin being played at times.
If you ever have concerns about something, PLEASE bring this up as early as possible, so we could help you. Thanks :)
