Lovely studio apartment,

Easy walking distance to Castro, Noe Valley, Cole Valley, Haight-Ashbury, U.C.S.F., Golden Gate Park ... etc.... it's all right there !
and you can take the #37 Muni bus, at the corner of our street, for easy access to catch the'underground' to Downtown and all that San Francisco has to offer, including Pier 39 !
Separate sleeping nook, living area and kitchen facilities; there is a daybed that can be made up for an extra person should you need it.
Fresh bed linen and unlimited supply of towels provided.
Private entrance and sunny deck for a relaxing breakfast.
Easy street parking w/. no permits required or time limits imposed.
There is a washer/dryer several doors down that is available.
The studio has basic kitchen facilities so if you are here to perform gastronomic feats this may not be the place for you.
Having said this, the studio is very quiet, cozy, private & very romantic !
Come check it out.....
A beautiful Zen like backyard
Interaction with Guests
I realize my guests don't come to San Francisco to meet me. I generally stay out of guests way but am available to answer any questions or assist in any way I can to make their stay more enjoyable.
* No smoking indoors ..... if you don't mind - you can smoke on the deck :)
* This is a residential neighborhood so no parties &/ loud music please
* When you go up & down the stairs, there are people who live on either side...,so,
if you arrive late, PLEASE be quiet & mindful when opening/closing the gate.
* The (email hidden)ease be careful to both shut & latch the gate each time you go in or
out otherwise, the wind will catch it and break it off its hinges.
* We try really hard to recycle as much as possible.
Since California is experiencing its fourth year of drought , water restrictions have been imposed; in view of this please be mindful of water consumtion - thanks
-If excessive cleaning is necessary, an extra $75.00 cleaning fee will be applied.
Staying at the Dog House - which feels my SF home-away-from-home by now - is always such a joy. Mia thinks of every tiny little thing and makes the place warm, cozy, and so very welcoming. It is the most restful, magical, beautiful spot in the city! And the garden (with stunning views of the city) is just gorgeous. I can't wait to find an excuse to come back!
Mia's "doghouse" apartment is a very cosy flat, only 15min by foot from Castro Station, where my sister and I spent 3 days. We loved Mia's creativity in the decoration, even in small details like the cupboard's "tool" handles or the "faucet" soapdish in the bathroom. Mia had even filled the fridge with beers, yogurts, cheese and ice cream! But the icing on the cake was the bed. After spending 11 hours in a plane, we definitely needed some rest and the bed was one of the most comfortable one I have ever slept on: it felt like laying on a soft cloud.
Unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to meet mia herself but we met her friend who was very kind and cared for everything.
I'm really glad we rented Mia's clean & sweet place and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Accueil super agréable, logement tres mignon, Mia est un amour
rien a dire. Cuisine tres bien, des boissons dans le frigo, du café à dispo, une vue formidable.
tout simplement super.
A 10 minutes à pied de Castro. vraiment parfait!
We stayed at Mia's apartment in mid September and everything was exactly as described here at airbnb!
We felt very welcome from the very first minute and absolutely preferred the location. For us it was not a touristic neighbourhood with lots of other hotels which we preferred. So we could experience the "local" way of life. Mia always answered immediately our questions and requests before and during the stay, we got tips for nearby supermarkets and bus stops and more. When we arrived we found some nice flowers, some food and beer in the fridge and a lovely welcome letter! The apartment is absolutely enough for two people visiting SF and you can even see the city centre & Bay Bridge from the bed (was a big plus). Also we got the chance to meet Mia and her dog Gus in person (and I have to admit that we are usually afraid /have a lot of respect of dogs we don't know, but Gus was the friendliest and quietest dog we ever met :-)) and Mia even drove us to the next metro station when we missed the bus (unfortunately busses are not as reliable as in other countries ;-) )
So we definitely will recommend this apartment to other travelers and friends who are visiting SF! It was nice meeting you Mia - maybe see you one day again for our next trip to California! Cheers ;-) M & M
My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time at the Dog House. Mia was quick to respond to any questions and concerns.
It was a treat when we arrived to find little notes and maps about the area, as well as some yummy snacks in the fridge. Mia and Sal were gracious hosts and Gus is a sweet dog!
There was some construction going on, which Mia forewarned us about, but that didn't take away from the experience.
The house is situated high up on a San Fran hill- so you'll need to take the nearby buses for most situations (unless you are the adventurous type).
Nonetheless, the location is excellent, just a couple of minutes from the center of Castro and super close to the Mission, Haight-Ashbury and other hotspots.
Staying at this airbnb was an absolute pleasure and we would stay again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended :)
It was a comfortable stay at the dog's house. Located closely to bus stations and easy access to Castro & Mission(even though the frequency of the buses can be a challenge). The place was slightly aged but clean & tidy. And since it is a separate space, privacy is respected. Mia was also helpful during our stay. Very smooth in&out. So considering high accommodation price in the SF, it seemed a good cost performance.
We had an amazing time at this studio. It's a really great place, very comfortable, with an amazing view and a beautiful balcony.
The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and safe (day and night).
It's the perfect place to visit the city, you can walk and go to a lots of nice places and public transport is very easy.
Mia is so nice and quick to answer any question. She left us a lot of detailled informations about transport and the city, it was very convenient. When we arrive, we found delicious muffins, beer, ice cream and more... it was very nice !!
Thank you Mia for everyting !!
Nous avons passé un superbe séjour dans ce studio. C'est un endroit super, très confortable, avec une magnifique vue et un très joli balcon.
Le quartier est très beau, calme et rassurant (de jour comme de nuit).
L'endroit est très bien situé pour visiter la ville, vous pouvez facilement vous déplacer à pieds et les transports publics sont très pratiques et faciles à utiliser.
Mia est vraiment très sympathique et rapide pour répondre aux éventuelles questions. Elle nous avait laissé toute une série d'informations à propos des transports et de la ville, c'était vraiment très pratique.
Quand nous sommes arrivé, nous avons trouvé de délicieux muffins, de la bière, de la glace et d'autres provisions.... c'était vraiment très gentil.
Merci pour tout Mia !!
