Welcome to your spacious 3br/2bth fully restored character home located in the vibrant & hip Mission district. This apartment has two large bedrooms and a smaller third with a bright open-plan kitchen, dining and living room spilling onto the deck.
This apartment is the upper in a two-unit 1908 house in the Mission District.
Fully renovated in 2014 with all new fixtures and fittings, the front of the apartment houses three bedrooms: two very spacious rooms with Queen beds and a comfortable third room with a Double bed. One of the bedrooms has a full bath/shower en-suite. Another bedroom has a desk & chair with views of the quiet residential tree-lined street.
The large open-plan living area at the back of the house has a fully equipped new modern kitchen and dining space, including a 6-seater dining table. We love to cook so you'll find everything you need there. There is a second full bathroom with a large new washer and dryer. The kitchen flows into the living room with its giant sofa, large flat-screen TV, BOSE sound system, cable, wifi and home phone - you can make unlimited calls within the US.
The final perk - large glass sliding doors give you access to a private deck and outdoor seating. Sip wine overlooking the views of Potrero Hill accompanied by our very active local birds. Hummingbirds are daily visitors here.
Full exclusive access to the upstairs apartment in this two apartment building.
Interaction with Guests
We live nearby and we're easy to reach, in case of questions or issues.
The apartment is located on a quiet residential street in the most vibrant neighborhood in San Francisco. It's one of the sunniest/warmest parts of the city. This wonderful location allows you to enjoy some of the best dining in town, as well as the rich arts scene and nightlife of the Mission. The apartment is two blocks away from the Latino hub of 24th street with its murals, street food and bustling shops. Less than two blocks in the other direction, you have some of the best restaurants/bars/coffee in town - Flour & Water, Central Kitchen, Trick Dog, Sightglass coffee.
Mission is a true melting pot of Latino families, hipsters, tech geeks and everyone in between.

We love being hosts and sharing our patch of San Francisco with guests. All we expect is for guests to treat our apartment with respect and care. We love animals but unfortunately can't have them in our home so please no pets. No smoking indoors of any kind, there is a deck which you can smoke on. Be respectful to our neighbors and keep it reasonably quiet after 10pm.
The place was just as described. Large, well decorated, clean. Love this area of the Mission with Sightglass coffee just down the block. Marshka had great communication and was an excellent host.
Place was great. Comfortable, sunny and clean. Would definitely book again!
This was a really wonderful place to stay for me and my colleagues as we were visiting San Francisco. Marshka was really easy and quick to communicate with, the house was extremely comfortable (I haven't slept so well in a while) and impeccably clean. Would definitely recommend.
My colleagues and I enjoyed Marshka's place immensely during a recent trip to San Francisco. The home is wonderfully equipped and recently remodeled. The three of us never felt that we lived in too close of quarters during our stay.
The patio was a wonderful place to enjoy a drink after a long morning of travel. Marshka was quick to respond, always available and anticipated our every needs. I'll be looking her up next time I head to town. You should too.
Marshka's place was fantastic; clean, well appointed and very comfortable. She gave very clear instructions and responded quickly. The instruction manual in the apartment answered all our questions. I would highly recommend Marshka's apartment
Why would anyone stay in a hotel when you can stay in a fantastic apartment like this one?!?! My husband, 13 year old son and I spent a week in this wonderful apartment with another couple who are dear friends. So, even with 5 of us, this apartment was spacious, comfortable and had lots of amenities. It was so bright, and open! The location was great. LOVED having a washer and dryer handy so that we were able to do a quick load and pack less. Marshka was an excellent communicator and it was so kind of them to leave us some basics in the kitchen (milk, beer, bagels, etc.) Would definitely recommend. I think Marshka thought of EVERYTHING to put in her guide too! Excellent host! The beds were comfy and the overall asthetic was a pleasant minimalist approach. Loved it!

Australian food-obsessed cheesemonger, living on a sunny street in San Francisco. My husband Matt and I love travelling, eating, eating, cooking and travelling...and eating. We love cities, with the occasional rural escape (usually in pursuit of some exotic lunch). We thoroughly enjoy being Airbnb hosts as well as guests.
