If you'd like to know more about us, we're the couple on the Airbnb Safety & Security video (website hidden).
Our Place: A private Garden Apartment on historic Balmy Alley. Steps from some of the best Murals in San Francisco. Sunny and bright with full access to a warm and well maintained garden.
We are in a great location in The Mission: 1/2 block off 24th street which is filled with great taquerias, cafes, fun shopping and some of the craziest and inventive ice-cream and doughnuts in the world. Transportation to other parts of the city and the airports is easy too. We're five blocks from 24th St. BART/Subway and minutes walk to Valencia street (home to some of SF's best restaurants).
Perfect for a couple wanting a little sanctuary in the city or base during your school semester, residency or job relocation. The place gets lots of morning sun and has a great view of the garden (where you can enjoy your morning tea or coffee).
The studio is it's own unit. It's very comfortably furnished and with all-new appliances and a full bath/shower. The apartment is stocked with sheets, towels and everything you need.
There's a comfortable Queen Bed with down comforter, full kitchen (minus oven), independent heating, high speed WiFi, iPod/iPhone Clock Radio Charger and fold-down Room & Board couch (twin bed sized).
Size wise, The Garden Studio is best for a single person or couple though there is a fold down couch bed for a 3rd person or kid.
There's a private entrance with electronic keypad lock so you never have to worry about arriving late at night and meeting us for a key, getting locked out, or sharing a key with your travel-mate.
We live upstairs, so if you need anything, just give a call or knock on our door.
Other great stuff nearby:

Mission Local Eatery
Humphry Slocombe Ice Creamery
Philz's Handmade Turkish Coffee
St. Francis Soda Fountain

CHILDREN UNDER 12 DO NOT REQUIRE AN EXTRA GUEST FEE.
Rentals more than 2 weeks include a cleaning during your stay.
PETS: We do have a mellow house cat who likes to hang out in the yard during the day (he's in every night). He won't come in to the apartment (unless you let him) but he would love to sit on your lap out on the deck.
Guests have shared use of the garden and patio.
We are located 5 blocks east of the 24th Street BART Station (our subway) which can take you downtown in less than 10 minutes or to SFO Airport, OAKland Airport, Berkeley, Oakland and beyond. There are also numerous bus lines within one block.
The Mission is very flat and walkable, so it's easy to get to our many restaurants and shops.
Other Things to Note
14% occupancy tax is charged via airbnb for all San Francisco rentals less than 30 days.
• While totally private, The Garden Studio is an apartment in our house. That means we are always happy to help you figure out your SF stay or recommend great places to eat in the neighborhood. It also means that we'd appreciate quiet after 10 and a respectful living situation.
•Check in is after 5p and check out is Noon. If there is no one staying with us before or after your visit we can be somewhat flexible with those times.
• IF THE DATES ARE FREE, WE WILL CONSIDER RENTALS LESS THAN THE MINIMUM NIGHTS (this may be at a slightly higher nightly rate but please ask us.)
•There is a small security deposit for damages that will be handled by Airbnb upon checkin and refunded to your credit card after check-out.
•There is a cleaning fee for daily & weekly rentals. For monthly rentals the price includes a cleaning during your stay [if the rental is longer than one month, additional cleaning fees apply].
•We currently book up to 4 months in advance.
David+Tina's garden apt was lovely. Conveniently located in the Mission, near Bart and Muni, the neighborhood was quiet but a walking distance to cafés and restaurants.
The pictures are accurate; the apt was clean and well equipped. I would definitely stay there again!
This was the first trip to SF for my husband, our baby daughter and me, and David and Tina's place was ideal. It's clean and well kept, with access to a lovely garden. The surrounding neighbourhood was a lot of fun to explore (great burritos, coffee, ice cream, etc very close by). They were responsive and friendly hosts. We'd happily come back.
Quaint listing in a superb location. It has everything I needed, and the hosts were kind and friendly.
This place is great. Just wish I had more time to enjoy the beautiful garden space! Perfect apartment for long stays in San Fran.
Tina und David waren super! Wir hatten bei def Ankunft Probleme mit unserem Flieger und kamen somit ersh einen Tag spaeter an und wit mussten die verpasste Nacht nicht zahlen. Tina begrüsste uns herzlich und hat uns gleich etwas zu trinken angeboten ala wir noch auf die Wohnung warten mussten. Sie ga en uns viele Tips wo einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind etc. Die Wohnung selbst sah genau so aus wie auf den Bildern und wie wir es erwartet haben:) sauber, ordentlich und man hatte alles was man braucht. Während unserem 4 wöchigen Aufenthalt kam sogar mal eine Putzfrau die alles gereinigt hatte. Ein Nachteil von der wohnig ist, wen man kocht gibt es keinen Abzug, das heisst die wohnig riecht dann sehr. Unser Aufenthalt war perfekt.
Thank you for your patience du ring m'y arriva. Your accommodation is very pleasant, comfortable, peace and pratical. It allowed me to have a rest after long dans of visit. Thank you for everything

We're avid travelers but now with two kids we don't get as far from home as we used to. When we do travel- we love to stay in real neighborhoods and experience an area the way the folks who live there do.
We love to eat, walk and bike (yes, the kids too!). We've lived in The Mission for 15+ years and know it well. It's an area we love to show off to visitors.
