The best neighborhood in all of San Francisco for food, shopping, nightlife and sun! Our modern sunny three bedroom apartment (huge for Mission standards) with new appliances is a gem. Fits five comfortably just two blocks from Dolores Park / BART.

The Space

Newly remodeled Edwardian-era condo in one of San Francisco's most desirable neighborhoods, the Mission. Known for its sunny weather, restaurants, and lively street life, the Mission is for families looking for fun for adventurers of all ages, lovers of nightlife, and people who need to sample a different astounding cuisine every meal for months. Our apartment is situated in one of the most popular blocks in the Mission, close to Dolores Park, 16th Street BART station, Birite Market, Tartine Bakery, Farina Restaurant, and dozens of local and artisinal shops. It's a dream come true to live around here. And, sadly we sometimes need to leave home to travel for work and family. We are gone about 25% of the year! And, it's just wrong to let this place empty and unenjoyed while we are away.

Now, to describe the apartment itself. We live in a 9-unit building on a quieter off-street in the Mission. Our 3 bedroom is designed for a family, since we now have a 2-year old. The master bedroom has a queen/full sized bed. The kids' room has a wooden eco-conscious toddler bed (sorry, no adult-sized bed in here). The guestroom/study has a full-sized pull-out couch, flat screen television, desk for work/study, DVD-player, desk, computer, and printer. One sunny bathroom with bath/shower. Fully equipped kitchen is made for people who love to cook, including gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, and the works. Living room has a comfy and long L-shaped sofa for an additional guest. The space has all of the tech amenities like wifi. We have washer/dryer facilities inside the apartment. There is currently no parking available, but there are a few parking garages within a 3-5 block walk from our place.

Since this is our homebase, guests will have to share space with our stuff, which can be both good and bad. Good because there's no lack of amenities that you are welcome to enjoy like movies, games, and cooking basics and bad because you won't have your own closet space. For the better, we are just trying to cover our household expenses while away, so it's not a business or investment property. Cheaper for you!

  • The most amazing airBnB experience me and my friends had.

    July 2014
  • What a great location! Steps away from Tartine, shops and just a couple blocks from the BART transit line. The place was clean, spacious, sunny with lovely mid-century modern touches.

    We were traveling with a 10-month old, and the kids/toddler room worked out beautifully.

    Caricia and Anthony were super nice and really accommodating when sorting out the booking details (I had a special request with booking dates and times).

    Pack your ear plugs if you're not used to the city noise at night, part of living in such a great location means you're right where the action happens. Especially during the weekend - all stuff that's been outlined in the description.

  • We had such a wonderful stay at Caricia's house.She was most helpful with check-in, recommendations (you should go to Frances),she even left a bottle of wine to us:)... The house is great- , felt like really our home. I wish we could have stayed longer. The neighbourhood, The Mission was awesome - it's the here are heaps of cool shops, bars, and restaurants close by.Check Valencia Street that is really close from the house.If you have the opportunity and you want to have a home away from home and live like a local don't doubt it - just book it!

  • I loved Caricia's place! I recently stayed for 5 nights with my husband, 9 month old baby, and 2 co-workers while I was in town for a conference. This gorgeous condo in the Mission was much more appealing than the conference hotel! The place was clean and comfortable - a huge plus when traveling with a little one. This place is definitely family friendly. The Mission has no shortage of great restaurants and places to get tasty treats. We enjoyed Mission Chinese, Tartine, Bi Rite, Truly Mediterranean, and others during our stay. Bottom line - this is an excellent place in a fun neighborhood. I would definitely stay here again.

  • We had a wonderful experience with Caricia and her lovely home in San Francisco! It is not easy to travel with two young children, having a place like this to stay made all the difference. The condo was clean, well appointed, beautifully decorated and located in a great neighborhood. We will surely be back!

  • Caricia has a beautiful space in a very cool neighborhood. Would definitely stay again.

    May 2013
  • I had a great stay at Caricia's home. The hosts made an effort to ensure we were comfortable and the home itself was everything we had hoped for: clean, comfortable, and well-located. My appreciation for the hosts' sense of style didn't hurt either. The only downside was that I put on a few pounds due to the proximity of Tartine Bakery and Pizzeria Delfina!

  • This place is great! its located in a great location, close to bars, coffee houses and a nearby grocery store, all walking distance. Its also a couple of blocks away from the BART.
    House was clean and very comfortable. Highly recommended!!!!

  • We had a great time staying in Caricia's apartment. It was super clean and had everything we needed. Next time we are out west, we would love the opportunity to stay there again!

Hello! Caricia Catalani and Anthony Veneziale love living in San Francisco and exploring the world. We both travel a lot for work. Anthony works in entertainment, theater, and television and so we often find ourselves at theater festivals around the world. Caricia works in HIV and technology research, trying to create new devices and applications for global health. So, for Caricia's work we often find ourselves in South Asia, Latin America, and all over Africa. Our baby, Jettaya, is now 1 years old and is a total adventure traveler, always up for fun. We have a huge family and lots of friends scattered around the world, so guests are always a part of our daily lives in San Francisco. While out of town, we love the idea that someone else is enjoying our lovely home. As guests, we are chill, reliable adults.
