San Franciscans walk a lot! The Mission is very accessible on foot, and walking down the hip and popular Valencia Street (2 blocks away) from 24th Street to 15th Street is a great way to pass by the many excellent eateries of the area.

The flat is a 5 min from BART- the City's underground high speed train and very close to many bus stops. The City has an excellent transit planner web site that allows you to enter in your starting address and destination (address or landmark) and it will tell you exactly which trains or buses to take to get you there! We also have Uber and a city bicycle share program where you can pick up and drop of bicycles at various locations around the City.

It's so awesome! This is how I myself get around SF as I do not have a car. If you use this promo code UBER will give you $30 in credits towards your first car ride ONLY IF YOU ARE A NEW USER WHO SIGNS UP WHILE YOU ARE IN THE USA - If you prefer not to take the Bart Train to the apartment, you can sign up for Uber at the airport using free Wifi and request Uber to drive you to the apartment instead of a Taxi - $30 OFF!

Our stay at MD's place is always going to be very close to all of us. The place is very apt for a stay in the heart of mission with such lovely places very close by.
I can go on and on about the host and how she goes absolutely out of the way to help her guests with whatever they need.
She is the best host I've yet come across and I believe she will be very hard to beat.
Good work MD. Please call us when you visit Mumbai

MD is such an amazing host. Super helpful with all of our touristy questions, recommended a ton of great places to visit, and really made us feel at home. The apartment is perfect and convenient, and my group of friends and I couldn't think of a better place to stay. Mission Pie and La Tanqueria (which is located a minute away from the apartment) will forever be in our hearts.
I was traveling with my husband and sister. We really wanted a place with 2 bedrooms so no one had to sleep on a couch. This was a perfect arrangement for (website hidden) was a very thorough with communications, making sure we had all the information we needed before we arrived and checking in with us to see if we needed anything. She was very quick to respond to any questions. We really appreciate that they had a locker outside so that we could leave our luggage before check-in and after check-out so that we didn't have to carry our bags while exploring the city.
Keep in mind that the apartment is located in a more "gritty" part of the mission district. The location was great with being so close to the BART station and being able to walk to lots of restaurants and amenities, but it hasn't been "gentrified" the way that the blocks north and west have.
A great and simple place to stay. Very well taken care of, and exactly as advertised.
The host was also really great and responsive - I messaged a couple of times and always got a response back in minutes helping me out.
The place was nicely renovated and located very close to the (website hidden) was very nice and she sent me messages to make sure everything was ok. We also had the chance to meet her in person. The keyless entry was easy to use and convenient.
Our stay was (website hidden) was welcoming and very accommodating. Wonderfully convenient location. Well appointed. 2 nice sized, very comfortable bedrooms. The only thing which surprised me was that while each room had sitting chairs, and the kitchen had a table with 3 chairs there was not a common room for hanging out. I was with my daughter so it was fine chilling in each others bedroom.
Your host is Kyle who lives in the apartment! SF Bay Area naive for nearly 20 years. Friendly, outgoing and involved in various private business ventures. Love to bicycle around San Francisco and enjoy the amazing eateries and sights to see! Love constructive feedback!
