About this listing
The Mission District has it all-restaurants, cafes, parks, nightlife, shops, no hills, public transportation and the most sun in foggy San Francisco. The Secret Lounge is your pied-à-terre from which to experience it all.
Our Place: This is a large one-room space on the first floor of our house.
A lot of thought went into creating The Secret Lounge as we wanted a private place 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.
If you're in SF for work, internship, school or simply looking for temporary housing, this is the place.
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 stay.
Other great stuff nearby:
Flour + Water
Humphry Slocombe Ice Creamery
Philz's Handmade Turkish Coffee
St. Francis Soda Fountain
La Palma Mexicatessen
Interaction with guests
Interaction with us is as much or as little as you'd like. 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 Mission has the best food, best weather and the best people. Come check it out for yourself.
We're close to 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. Bike rentals are also available in SF.
Other things to note
Sorry but no rentals less than 30 days. Monthly Only
•The Secret Lounge is in our house. That means we are always happy to help you figure out your SF stay or recommend great places to eat in the neighborhood. It also means that we'd appreciate quiet after 10pm and a respectful living situation.
•Sorry but no smoking in or around the property.
• Please do not leave the windows open with the shades down. There is always an afternoon wind and it will damage the shades. Just ask and we'll show you how to open the windows from the top down for more privacy.

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, the kids too!). We've lived in The Mission for 15+ years and know it well. It's an area we love to show off to visitors.
