About this listing
Come stay in a clean, bright bedroom, bathroom with a kitchenette. The apartment is located in the heart of the Richmond with restaurants galore, coffee shops, pubs, a local movie theater, and easy bus access to the rest of the city. This area is quieter than the rest of the city, and we love that this is an urban area with beautiful nature as well. Walk to Baker Beach, Golden Gate Park, and Land's End with a burrito you picked up along the way.
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)
*Complementary bottle of California wine, a snack to get you going, and coffee and tea.
*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 have a white noise machine and earplugs. Some people are not able to deal with the sounds of a family upstairs. That being said, we have had plenty of people who are OK with the sounds of footsteps above them. We 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.
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.
2 (adult) person maximum. There is room for a baby or toddler, but not for a third adult. Absolutely NO SMOKING OR DRUGS, and due to allergies, WE CAN'T HOST SMOKERS or pets. Your place is separate and private, but it is a city so we would like reasonable quiet at night because we are good neighbors.

We are two teachers who love all that San Francisco has to offer. Brian is also a working artist and we are both avid hikers, swimmers (yes, you can swim in San Francisco), and campers, and love sharing our love for the beautiful outdoor spaces in San Francisco. While Brian is an excellent cook and loves shopping at the Asian markets around our home, we also love to eat out, and are happy to be living in a place with such good restaurants within a 1-10 minute walk! Lindsay grew up in New Hampshire and is excited to share one of her favorite places in the world with others (and help fund our summer trips there!)
