Before you click on "Book It". Click first on "Contact Me" to make sure your dates are available. Check in time is 3pm or after.

This impeccably clean studio cottage sits in the back of a peaceful garden. It is a detached little home with its own private entrance, and is located in a quiet and safe San Francisco neighborhood on a hill - with fantastic views of the bay and downtown. The host lives nearby if you need to borrow an iron, or have any questions on the best places to eat in San Francisco.

Enjoy a comfortable queen sized bed with down comforter and clean linens. Freshly laundered towels and basic amenities are provided.

There is a small bathroom with shower, plenty of hot water, and a closet to put your belongings in. A small refrigerator, hot plate cooking range, hair dryer, microwave, kettle and electric heater completes the setting for a cozy (website hidden) utensils, dishware etc are provided as well.
There is cable HDTV too with premium channels like HBO.

Savor the lovely bay views, open up the french doors to your own sunny patio and sit in the adirondack chairs amongst the trees and flowers. Complimentary tea and coffee provided.
This truly is an oasis. Enjoy the best of San Francisco during the day and come home to peace, relaxation and hassle free parking.

If you have a car, there is plenty of free street parking with no time limit within one block of the cottage. If you don't feel like driving, it is easy to catch the bus into town from the bus stop less than 2 blocks away downhill - the 8X & 8AX will get you into downtown San Francisco in 20 minutes, and onwards directly to North Beach/Fisherman's Wharf. A bus ride on the 29 to the nearest BART station will take about 15 minutes, the bus continues on to Stonestown Mall & Presidio.

We are conveniently located 10 minutes drive from San Francisco airport, with easy access to 101 & 280 highways. I'd be happy to give more bus and direction details if needed. I have been living here for many years, and can give you a local's perspective into places to go and things to see and do.

There is a small dog which stays indoors at the main house most of the day, but will come in the garden occasionally in the early mornings and evenings.

Relax, it's easy entry - As a user of Airbnb myself when I travel - I make sure my guests never have to worry about their arrival or having to fuss with calling right before coming over. You will always be able to get in easily. Just give me a general time of arrival during booking, so that I can make sure to be there when you arrive, or we can set you up with the lockbox code to enter.

Check in time is 3pm onwards. We can be flexible with your check in/check out times, depending on whether we have other guests checking in or out on the same day.

There is also a fold down sofabed that can accommodate a 3rd guest - let me know and I will set it up with clean sheets and warm blankets. (Sofabed request for a two person booking - $20/one time fee, please arrange with host. There is no charge for sofabed setup for a 3-person booking)

  • Our expectations were pretty high based on the reviews Feli had gotten already, but somehow it still managed to be even better! The cottage is the perfect little home away from home. It has everything you need, the location is wonderful and Feli was the perfect host. Her recommendations on how to get around the city - when to take the car, where to park and how to best use the BART - made our visit to San Francisco so much better than we had imagined. Parking on the street was always easy to find.
    This was our first airbnb experience and our only problem right now is that we're nervous the standard has been set so high by Feli that our next airbnb experience could only be disappointing. Quite a luxury.
    We met Feli and her beautiful family a couple of times and felt like we could ask her anything and she would be willing and able to help us out. The is no doubt that when we come back to San Francisco, we would prefer to stay there again.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed in Feli's beautiful cottage for three nights and could not have been happier with the experience! Really good clean room, well located to catch a bus in to town etc. Only met Feli briefly but she was super nice along with her partner who were both very very helpful! Thanks!

  • Feli's cottage was perfect for our extended weekend in San Fransisco. The cottage was very neat, clean and private. I stayed there with my Mom. We shared the very comfortable bed and slept well. Feli gave us directions to a local grocery, so we were able to save money cooking breakfast on the hot plate in the cottage before we went out to explore. The cottage is within driving distance to all the local attractions. It is in safe, quiet neighborhood. The cottage is well equipped for travelers, almost everything you need is provided: towels, washcloth, shampoo, soap, hot plate, dishes, utensils, hair dryer, kettle, coffee maker, fan, tea, etc. I would highly recommend staying here. It's larger than a hotel room, you have the option to make meals and eat in, it is safe and quiet, close to everything and very reasonably priced. You also have a private outdoor sitting area that is surrounded by fragrant flowers. Bonus: Feli is right there if you need anything, but otherwise leaves you alone to do your thing :-)

  • the cottage is situated in a beautiful garden with several fruittrees. It is clean and has a small but well equiped kitchen. A good double bed and a extentable sleepingbench,which is oke. Parking is easy in the street. There are guidebooks on San Fransisco. It is a 20 minute drive to the city. There are busses too.
    Feli is a good host, very trustworthy and helpfull

  • Wir waren 5 Tage in dem wunderbaren Cottage von Feli - es war super! Obwohl wir sie leider persönlich nicht kennen lernen konnten, hat sie uns immer sofort weitergeholfen und schnell auf jede Email geantwortet. Das Cottage war sauber und nach Downtown sowie zum Flughafen geht's öffentlich auch recht schnell und unkompliziert. Jederzeit würden wir nochmal dort wohnen.

  • It was a great experience staying at Feli's place. Everything was extremely clean and in-order. The place was exactly like it was shown in the photos. The place had everything I needed during the stay.

  • Staying with Feli was an excellent airbnb experience and I would recommend her as a baby friendly host (Feli was very helpful providing crib and baby sit). This is quite remarkable for a airbnb host!

    Everything was as in the description and I was positively surprised with the beauty of their garden and view. Feli's food recommendations were also great!

    Thank you Feli for a great stay!

  • Feli's garden cottage is in a wonderful area of San Francisco. You see the real city, with the real people who work in the city. Her garden cottage is lovely. A beautiful garden and great view on top of the hill. Be prepared to walk and to take a San Francisco climb. But we didn't mind that a moment. Feli is an excellent tour guide too, making good suggestions for bus roots and the best places to eat. It was a great start to a wonderful vacation in the Pacific Northwest.

I grew up in Malaysia - but am currently living in San Francisco. I love to travel - recent trips include Komodo, Himalayas and Borneo. My favorite cities are Lisbon, Istanbul, Hong Kong and San Francisco! I am both a host and a regular user of Airbnb, and consider myself very lucky to live in a city I love. I have been hosting for over a year, and have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. I'd been happy to share with you my favorite local haunts! Other likes: Pink Martini, Gotan Project, Y tu Mama Tambien, ChungKing Express, learning foreign languages. In my spare time I like to work in the garden, growing organic vegetables. I go running with my dog (a Formosan rescue from Taiwan) regularly, and I also love discovering new secrets of the city I live in (San Francisco) as well as eating the wide variety of food you can find here.
