A private, quiet, comfortable flat in the heart of up-and-coming Dogpatch--a funky, arty, real San Francisco neighborhood with a distinctively urban point of view. Easy access to all SF has to offer including great coffee and restaurants, without the hustle and bustle of downtown crowds and chaos.
Find respite from a urban life in this calm, comfortable, quiet flat, filled with original art and facing a lovely garden oasis.
The flat accommodates two adults, which is the booking limit.
We live on the premises, and are usually available to greet our guests, but also have a lock box for completely independent check in and check out.
The small terrace outside the flat is reserved for guests alone, and the rest of the garden is shared with us.
Interaction with Guests
We are always available for questions-- but offer fully independent entry and privacy for our guests.
Dogpatch is a small historic neighborhood where Victorian cottages bump up against industrial brick warehouses, and a flourishing maker culture has been born. Almost every week a new cafe, bar or shop opens along 22nd St and 3rd, as the community is growing and thriving.
Dogpatch is in southeast San Fran, with easy access to downtown via the T-3rd tram, as well as the South Bay via CalTrain and nearby 280 freeway. Transport to downtown, Union Square, BART and the Ferry Plaza can be had via the tram. Mid-town, including the Mission, Filmore and Fisherman's Wharf, and points further west, are accessible via the 22, 10 & 48 buses. Biking is easy and almost completely flat along the water's edge all the way to the the Golden Gate Bridge.
Finding street parking is relatively easy during the day, and very easy nights and weekends.
From the Airport: We are 12 minutes by cab or Uber from SFO. Also consider an airporter/rideshare like supershuttle, for which reservations can be made ahead of arrival. BART from SFO to 16th and Mission Streets stop, then the 22 bus to our corner at 20th and 3rd st is the public transport option.
Other Things to Note
Parking: Street parking is free for four hours directly in front of our house. All-day street parking is available a block to the north. Finding parking is relatively easy during the day, and very easy nights and weekends.
Please note that there is no TV in the flat, but with your own computer, films and programming can be streamed through the wireless internet connection.
There is no smoking on the premises, including in the garden. We are sorry, but cannot accommodate pets.
Early check-in and late check-out are usually not a problem, but if we have a prior or subsequent booking, we usually have 4 pm check-in and 11 a.m. check out--please ask!
There is an honor bar in the flat that is fully stocked with liquor and wine. Please simply note what you've enjoyed and put cash in the box or add it to your tab.
Second stay here and it was just as great as the first! The Doumanis were very welcoming. I had some custom requests and they went out of their way to accommodate. I love this place :)
Beautiful space in a wonderful/well appointed neighborhood. These space has multiple little touches that will make your stay special.
Thanks so much! Incredibly beautiful home and SUPER great attentive and responsive hosts! Would recommend to anyone traveling to the bay area!
We were lucky to find a real nice and comfy apartment with Jared and Katherine. Jared and Katherine created a great "area manual" for their guests, so that it is easy to get around in Dogpatch and we enjoyed the neighborhood, the shops, cafés etc. We will come back to this lovely place on our next trip to San Francisco.
I really appreciated how Jared and Katherine responded promptly to all my emails, and were on hand to welcome my husband and me. The description of the apartment is accurate. The atmosphere was pleasing and peaceful. We were very comfortable, and loved the neighborhood. Added touches included the high quality, fully-equipped kitchen, fascinating reading material, comfortable bed and privacy. This space is well-maintained, and our hosts well-organized, allowing us to settle in easily and to feel at home.
Place was as expected. Clean, functional and in a great location for daily trips to my office downtown. No regrets.
The stay was wonderful. The place was perfect and the neighborhood was great. It is a quiet area yet still close to downtown. Jared and Katherine are wonderful hosts and have made the flat a wonderful escape from a busy day. I strongly recommend.
A native Californian and Jersey girl, we have lived San Francisco's Dogpatch neighborhood for over a decade. We met in the restaurant business and are avid supporters of all things food-related in San Francisco--from restaurants and local butchers to taco trucks and underground candy shops. We are actively involved in our community and love sharing it's charms with visitors, friends and family.
