The Space

*** 3 night minimum except when there is only 1 or 2 nights available ***

Our Place: This is a large one-room apartment on the first floor of our house. It's totally private like a hotel room but with it's own entrance. A lot of thought went into creating The Secret Lounge as we (email hidden) that our parents could stay in when they visit their grandchildren. In the times between visits, we are open to renting it out as we are avid travelers and always like to stay off the beaten path as well and enjoy meeting like-minded people.

We love our neighborhood with its great weather, fabulous food and incredible culture. We're happy to share it with you.

We are very central to downtown (BART, aka the subway, is a 5 minute walk) as well as the freeways to the airport & Silicon Valley. But there's really no reason to go elsewhere- The Mission has it all within walking distance: nationally renown restaurants, great shopping, parks, sun, no hills to climb, and tacos, tacos, tacos!

The space has everything you need to base your San Francisco vacation.

Interaction with Guests

Interaction with us is as much or as little as you'd like. You have your own entrance and some guests we see very little as they're off touristing or visiting friends. Others we meet on the stoop and share neighborhood tips. We love to share our city but you'll never feel that you have to check in with us if you don't want to.

The Neighborhood

The Mission has the best food, best weather and the best people. Come check it out for yourself.

Getting around

We're 5 blocks from 24th St BART (our subway system) and 1 block from #12 bus to downtown/chinatown. The Mission is very flat and walkable. We almost never drive.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at David and Tina's was great. Upon arrival David met us at the BART station (as we had heavy luggage and were not familiar with the area). They are friendly and assisted us whenever we needed something
    The Secret Lounge was great for our three night stay. It's close by to amazing food and many small market stores and public transport. Getting around SF is super easy and being in a great location like this means many things are within walking distance.
    We had a lovely stay at the Secret Lounge and would definitely recommend it for short stays in SF!

  • As others have said, this was a really nice apartment in a great location with lots of interesting things to see and do. It was nice of the hosts to provide so many recommendations for restaurants and I was not disappointed with any of them! Philz coffee is delicious. The apartment was well-stocked with dishes, a hair dryer, guidebooks, and anything else you could need while on vacation. The artwork and decor of the place was great as well. Overall a really pleasant stay in San Francisco.

  • We had a great time at the Secret Lounge. The apartment is perfect for a couple and contains everything you need for a short stay in San Francisco (4 nights in our case). The Mission District is an interesting neighborhood with a lot of nice cafés, restaurants and shops, and the way to Downtown SF only takes about 10-15 minutes by BART. David and Tina are great hosts. Thanks again!

  • We really enjoyed staying at the Secret Lounge. It was a fantastic set up in a really cool neighbourhood - lots to see and eat! The lounge is set up with everything to make a comfortable stay, it is very close to transport - perfect location. Highly recommended.

  • Loved the secret lounge. Great neighbourhood to explore, close to transit and the perfect home base for a few days in San Fran!

  • It was an overall great experience at the secret lounge. Great location with tons to eat/explore nearby. The weather was quite warm when we were there, so the apartment did get a little warm during our stay. We opened the windows to cool it down at night, yet the street was quite noisy (my only complaint about this place). David was very nice, and let us keep our bags longer until our flight left as well.

  • Loved my weekend at the Secret Lounge. David and Tina have a great set up here. I never met them in person, but all the little extra touches in their place (Brita filter, coffee pot, silverware, keyless entry), made it an especially easy and enjoyable experience. Great, walkable neighborhood. Good food and bars close by, and check out the coffeeshop Haus on 24th--I felt like I was in Berlin! Would certainly look to book again next time I'm in the city.

  • This (email hidden) to stay in San Francisco. It is a short walk to the public transport, and right in the heart of the Mission which has lots of amazing food.
    The place itself is a great size for two people and has everything you could need. The bed is really comfortable and the apartment is private. David and Tina are great hosts and are easily contactable by email or phone if you need them.
    When we were in San Francisco it was actually really warm - something unusual for the city. David contacted us to see if we needed a fan to help cool the apartment. And although we were fine, we appreciated the offer.
    If you want to stay in one of the more colourful areas of San Francisco and a great apartment, we highly recommend The Secret Lounge.

    May 2014
  • A very cool and nice situation - clean, cozy and a good location to explore San Francisco either walking, Taxi or BART. Will certainly stay again - thank you David!

We're avid travelers but now with two kids we don't get as far from home as we used to. When we do travel- we love to stay in real neighborhoods and experience an area the way the folks who live there do. We love to eat, walk and bike (yes, pulling the kids behind us!). We've lived in The Mission for 15 years and know it well. It's an area we love to show off to visitors.
