Cozy Mission/Noe 1-br close to BART

It's a great time of year to visit San Francisco. The weather is very warm and dry...terrible for California's water situation, but 70 degree days in January!

My place is cozy, tech-friendly & you can walk easily to chic restaurants, bars & BART.

It's a great time of year to visit San Francisco. The weather is very warm and dry...terrible for California's water situation, but 70 degree days in January!

My place is cozy, tech-friendly & you can walk easily to chic restaurants, bars & BART.

The Space

Cozy 1 bedroom (living room also has a sofabed that sleeps 2), 1 bath ground floor apartment on quiet, tree-lined street on the border of Noe Valley and the Mission. Three blocks to 24th Street BART (San Francisco's light rail, 30 minute ride from SFO) Mission bus lines and J Church light rail. Shared back deck, hardwood floors, parking for 1 car available.

Easily walk to some of the most vibrant areas of the Mission, but on a quiet street that feels more like the suburbs. Hop on the BART and be downtown in just a few minutes. There is a grocery and laundromat 2 blocks away that are easily accessible.

The home office is set up for anyone to plug in their Mac to use with a 21-inch monitor and desk with a high-speed wireless connection. Living room home theater system is iPod ready with a 46-inch flat screen TV hooked up to an internet-capable Mac mini (with wireless keyboard and mouse) with ability to receive digital antenna signals for network television stations. Perfect for watching Hulu, Netflix streaming or content on your portable device (cable for laptop is also available). Also cable TV with HBO and Showtime.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the entire apartment, which includes use of the kitchen and basic staples.

Interaction with Guests

I prefer to greet guests in person, but, if I am out of town, I have a friend who knows the apartment well and will let you in. If you arrive very late, I may leave a key for you. In any case, I'm always only a text message or phone call away if any issues arise.

The Neighborhood

The Mission has many hip restaurants, shops and bars, but I live on a quiet street that allows you to easily walk through this area. It is a city, so I'd advising keeping your wits about you at night, like paying attention when you use your cell phone on the street.

Getting around

As mentioned above, there is easy access to 24th Street BART, J Church and Mission Street buses. If you have a car, there is a spot behind the house in the alley that I allow guests to use. From SFO, you can take BARt (about $10 and 45 minutes), a cab (about $35 and 20 minutes) or a shared shuttle service like Super Shuttle.

  • Fabulous apartment in a great location in the Mission. Spacious enough for our small family but super cozy and warm. Loved the San Francisco paintings and the gorgeous black and white photography.

  • Maureen was very accommodating as we arrived later than anticipated, and made sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is in a great location - a short drive to Dolores park and the cafes and restaurants nearby, and has available parking, which is HUGE if you're going to have a car while in the city. We weren't there long enough to take advantage of the kitchen, but it was fully stocked with anything we'd need to cook for ourselves. It's worth mentioning that there is little to no space to store your clothing, baggage, etc. We only stayed for 2 nights, so it wasn't a huge issue, but were we to be staying longer I would have found that frustrating.

    Response from Maureen:

    Thanks to Martha's feedback, I have made an entire wardrobe available for guests to store their clothes in the bedroom. As far as the kitchen goes, there is a substantial amount of of refrigerator, freezer and pantry storage already available. Perhaps if this guest had not been four hours late for arrival and had been available for an orientation of the apartment's amenities, she would have been aware of this.

  • Maureen est arrivée avec un sens du timing exceptionnel pour nous ouvrir et nous laisser entrer avec nos valises avant de nous faire visiter son appartement.
    Elle a beaucoup d'humour et a fait de son appartement un grand havre de paix.
    En plus d'avoir une cuisine d'enfer (où j'ai repiquer des idées pour notre maison), le salon, sa télé et son bouquet de chaînes TV nous ont permis de nous détendre en rentrant de nos balades à San Francisco.
    Il faut dire que nous n'avions pas vraiment envie de trainer près de la rue de Mission, qui est à 1 block, après 20h30. La rue de Mission n'est pas méchante mais ne nous a pas mise en confiance en soirée. Alors nous avons profité un max de ce super appart !
    Petit bémol pour le manque de rangement disponible pour nos affaires dans la chambre, mais on s'est débrouillé, c'est un détail.

    Merci à Maureen pour sa disponibilité, sa confiance et son énergie !

  • It was our first experience with airbnb and everything was like it was in the description of Maureen´s flat.
    Maureen was very helpful and gave us good recommendations for shopping and restaurants.
    Mission is good and interersting upcoming district!

  • Maureen was great! She accepted my reservation even though it was only a few days before, and was accommodating about letting me drop by mag off when my flight got in (11am). She also taught me how to use the coffee maker.

    Her place is conveniently located, and I liked the layout. The bed was comfortable, the shower had water pressure - everything you could want.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Maureen's place. The apartment had everything we needed and more and is a good starting point to explore San Francisco. The subway that takes you downtown is just around the corner. We had a great time visiting the little shops on Valencia street (be sure to check out Craftsmen and Wolves for lunch). Maureen was a very kind and helpful host.

  • Maureen was an amazing host! Not only did she have a clean and cozy home to share, she also offered great insight into the city and the neighborhood. She preemptively showed me a few tips and tricks to make sure everything was working correctly in the apartment and made sure I felt right at home.

    I would highly recommend staying here!

  • Maureen's place is excellent. It was bigger than I expected (always a pleasant surprise) and very nice. I stayed with a coworker and she used the bedroom while I used the couch for sleeping. Both were equally comfortable. The location is also really central. Short walk to BART and MUNI. And generally a good neighborhood for taking a talk, grabbing a bite or getting coffee. I'd stay there again.

    June 2014
  • Maureen was an excellent host. The apartment is in an excellent part of town, just off from the hustle and bustle of Valencia and Mission streets. Bed was super comfortable and the apartment is spacious.

  • Maureen was really helpful with her apartment and leaving instructions for her apartment! She even made sure I made it to her apartment ok after arriving to SF after 11pm!
