The Space

Come stay in your own artist-decorated, peaceful, bright garden studio apartment with a private, secure entrance, near hiking and biking trails, the beach, museums, parks and really any kind of restaurant you want. We love our city and if you want advice, we are excited to help you plan your trip.

What makes our place special:
*Privacy and quiet: You have a separate entrance (through garage) into your bright studio apartment, which includes a queen sized bed, closet, kitchenette, and full bathroom (all private).

*Access from the bedroom to the backyard

*Close proximity to nature and restaurants (see below)

*Wireless Internet

*Complementary bottle of California wine, a snack to get you going, and coffee and tea.

*Allergy-proof mattress/bedding

*Notes about the space: This is a three-room studio apartment (bedroom, bath, kitchenette -see photos). The bedroom has a table and seating area good for 2 to share a meal, and the kitchenette is a small galley that includes the following amenities: small fridge, single-burner range, small counter-top oven/toaster oven, microwave, electric tea kettle. The bathroom has a shower but no tub. There is no TV in the space - we typically watch on our computer through the wireless.

We have two young kids and we are up early in the morning. We don't wear shoes in the house, are quiet in the morning, and are out of the house most mornings by 7:30 am. We ask guests to comment on sound in the apartment, so please read reviews to get a sense of the place.

Absolutely NO SMOKING on the premises, and we CAN'T HOST SMOKERS in our house due to severe allergies.

CHECK-IN is after 5pm - we know this is late, but we need the time to clean the apartment. If you would like to come by early to drop off your bags and go explore, just let us know.

Parking: There is street parking that is reasonable (by San Francisco standards) which means that you may have to look for a few minutes and possibly park a block or two away.

We look forward to sharing our home and this fabulous city with you. We love helping to plan non-touristy outdoorsy days for our guests. Please contact us with any questions you have about our place or your visit here.

Guest Access

We have a backyard (now landscaped, and we need to update the photo), and you're welcome to use it for a morning coffee or afternoon drink.

Interaction with Guests

We live upstairs so are almost always around and available to answer questions about the place and your visit to the area.

The Neighborhood

We are located in a mecca for a large variety of restaurants. Our favorites, which are all within a 10 minute walk, include the reasonably-priced Bai Son (Thai), Mescolanza (Italian), Ton Kiang (Chinese/Dim Sum), Blufin Sushi, (unique Japanese/Sushi), La Vie Vietnamese Restaurant (Vietnamese-French) , John Cambell's Irish Bakery, (to-go Irish bakery), Gaspare's (family Italian joint), Tommy's (featuring the largest tequila selection on the West coast), Pizetta 211 (locally-sourced flatbread), Angelina's Cafe (breakfast/sandwiches), Gordo's Taqueria, (tacos and burritos), PPQ Dungeness Island (Vietnamese/CRAB!), Bill's Hamburger (best burger and malts in SF), Royal Ground Coffee (coffee shop). It would really be hard to get bored of the food options around here, because there are so many. We'd love to give advice after hearing what you're in the mood for.

Nighttime Entertainment:
2 blocks away is the 4-star Movie Theater, which shows indie and blockbuster films
Our favorite bars include Tommy's (where, if you ask, Julio will give you a introductory lesson on types and origins of tequila), Plough and Stars (an Irish Pub where you will find us on Sunday nights when people show up to play Irish music (seisiún)). Blackwell's Wines (tastings on Saturday from 2-6).

Nature and Parks
We live very close to some of San Francisco's best natural spots. Our favorites, which can be reached on foot, bike, or by bus/car are:

Land's End: beautiful hiking trail up on the cliff, overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay. Lindsay hikes here most days, and loves how the weather (fog/clear) changes the view). (http://parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/lands-end.html)

Baker Beach: View of the bay, Golden Gate Bridge, and big waves. Ask Brian about his recent Elephant Seal rescue here! (http://www.parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/baker-beach.html)

Ocean Beach: This long beach is a favorite for surfers (the 2011 Ripcurl Pro Search Surfing Event occurred in November). We like to bring coffee in the morning or burritos at sunset to walk and watch the waves and birds. There is also a hilarious (if you like dogs) event on Saturday mornings - small dog owners gather for a walk on the beach, and seeing hundreds of small dogs running around brings a smile to our faces every time. (http://www.parksconservancy.org/visit/park-sites/ocean-beach.html)

Golden Gate Park: From our place you can walk to the more natural part of the park (Stow Lake), open fields for picnics, and a short bus ride/bike/drive brings you to the museums. (http://www.golden-gate-park.com/)

Kid Parks: A few blocks away, appropriate for toddlers and older kids, is the Rochambeau Park. Our son has been pretty happy there!

Museums: The Legion of Honor, Cal Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Museum and close by and easy to get to.

Hiking: We love how close good hiking is to our place. Good local hikes include the new Coastal Trail (starts at Baker Beach), Land's End, Golden Gate Park. We drive over the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin for a day hike most weekends and have maps and trail guides to share.

Getting Around

Public Transportation:
We can help you figure out where you want to go, but the 38 Geary Bus, which you pick up at the end of our block, is very convenient. It runs very regularly, early until late, and you can transfer ANYWHERE from this line - to all neighborhoods, museums, tourist attractions, etc. The bus brings you downtown (about a half hour), or out to Ocean beach.

We take public transportation from the San Francisco Airport, and Super Shuttle runs as well.
