The neighborhood surrounding the Haight Estate is one of the most vibrant and green areas in the city. Enjoy walking to four spectacular parks and some great eateries. We sit at the intersection of three great neighborhoods: Lower Haight, Upper Haight and the Divisadero Corridor. Walk east down Haight Street, left out the front door, three blocks to enter the lower Haight. Great economical eateries and many eclectic bars characterize this active nightlife neighborhood. Walk west up Haight Street, right out the front door, to the famous Haight Ashbury district. Famed epicenter of San Francisco’s 60’s counterculture movement the area has retained its funky charm with some great shopping and eatery updates. Walk north on Divisadero and you’ll find one of San Francisco’s fastest emerging communities with popular destination restaurants and numerous cafes. Below are some of our specific recommendations.

The Kitchen is stocked with cooking equipment and Tupperware to save food. There is a cooler and ice packs in the freezer if you want to use for a picnic. We have a larger cooler if you need on. There is a gas grill in the back yard under the back stairs leading out of the kitchen.
Parking is usually available in the immediate neighborhood. Be mindful of the street sweeping signs. For two hours each week you will get ticketed for parking in a street sweeping zone. On Haight, north on Broderick and on Page parking is available without a permit. These tend to be the spots that go first.
Head in parking. On Waller, just south of Haight running parallel and on Baker there is head-in parking which means plenty of spaces. The Broderick is head in and with no permit required to stay all week. Baker Street and the side of Buena Vista park are also head-in parking but with permits required for day parking.
If you park in a permit area overnight, you still have two hours from the start of the day to park for free. So you can stay in a permit zone until 10am in the morning, then move your car.
In practice, they rarely ticket for permit violations, but always ticket for street sweeping violations. Super parking secret is that up Alpine Terrace road the hill is too steep for meter maid car to climb so while it is permit parking, it is rare to get ticketed there.

The "N Judah" Muni Trolley is a five block walk at Duboce Park. The trolley is a great choice as it goes from one end of city to another. Beach to Bay. It travels east down to the financial district, and South of Market terminating at the grand Ferry Building with access to ferrys that serve Oakland, Alameda and Sausalito. The trolley travels west to Ocean Beach and along the south border of Golden Gate park.

Frank was a very accommodating host during our stay in the Haights neighborhood. Although check-in wasn't until 4, he allowed us to store our bags in the flat at 1. The space was perfect for our group of 6. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
My friends and I loved staying at Frank's apartment! The location is convenient and the apartment is beautiful. I would highly recommend to future travelers!
Host was very nice, talked to him a couple of times. We really enjoyed the house and the location was great. Much better than a hotel.
We stayed here for four nights and absolutely loved it. The apartment was beautiful, in perfect condition and everything was well prepared for us prior to our arrival. Location is great and neighbourhood is safe, and only a 15 minutes drive to union square and 20 minutes to fisherman's wharf. To top it off Frank was a wonderful and thoughtful host who responded super swiftly to all of my questions. Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye in person, thanks for everything and we hope to come back again!
Frank's flat was perfect! Three friends and I stayed for one night but wished we could have stayed longer. It is spacious and tastefully decorated. It's walking distance from lots of restaurants and bars. Frank sent us detailed instructions, suggestions for restaurants and attractions, and made us feel very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!
From the moment we walked in we realized this was a good choice. (over a traditional hotel) The house was centrally located, very spacious, had beautiful fixtures and decor, and was very welcoming and comfortable. I could not recommend this place more, and would absolutely stay here again when we come to town.
Thanks Frank, the place is amazing!
My Fiancé and I stayed at Frank's apartment during our SF elopement. The apartment was even more beautiful than the pictures, when we walked in it took our breath away. The amenities were plentiful, with more than enough towels and linen to accommodate our stay. The laundry facilities were superb, best I have ever seen! The code entry was so convenient making check in and check out a breeze and was also helpful as we had different friends staying with us and popping in during our stay. The location one of the best in SF, walking distance to great cafes, bars and restaurants. I will most certainly stay again ! In fact cannot wait until I do again with my now husband :) What a blessing to stay at Frank's apartment during such a special occasion.
