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.
The Haight Estate is centrally located and has ideal access to public transportation anywhere in the city and beyond.
The "71" bus is on our block and travels both directions all the way from Ocean Beach, along the south side of Golden Gate Park, down Market Street and ending near the Bay in the South of Market neighborhood.
The "22" bus crosses Haight Street a few blocks away at Fillmore and will take you all the way to the Marina and Fort Mason. Or you can pick up the "24" bus on our block at Divisadero and transfer to the "22" in Pacific Heights.
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.
The "F line" historic streetcar line is a seven block walk away and runs down Market Street in old restored street cars. It terminates in the north Waterfront area by Pier 39 where you can get ferries to Alcatraz and Angel Island.
The 71 bus, and N and F trolley lines all stop near the Powell Street Cable Car line which is the emblematic San Francisco public transpiration option that goes up and over Nob Hill to the waterfront.
The 71 bus, and N and F trolley lines also stop at multiple points along Market Street for BART subway access which in turn travels from the airport, through San Francisco to deep into the East Bay.
There is also walking access to a dozen zip car stations if you want to use a car for a day. You can register for zipcar and see locations t the zipcar website.
Other Things to Note
Free parking is available in the immediate neighborhood. We’ve noticed one's point of view on how difficult it is to park correlates to where they come from. Folks who live in cities typically say, “I can’t believe how easy parking was. I found a space within two blocks every night.” Folks from the suburbs typically say, “I can’t believe how hard parking was. I had to walk two blocks one night.”
You can park in a permit area overnight and for two hours during the day starting at 8am. So you can stay in a permit zone until 10am in the morning, then move your car.
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 and south on Broderick parking is available without a permit.
When parallel parking on a hill be careful to turn your wheels into the curb or you may get a ticket.
Head in parking. On Waller, just south of Haight running parallel and on Baker there is head-in parking which creates plenty of spaces. Baker Street and the side of Buena Vista park are also head-in parking but with permits required for day parking. These are great places to find spots.
In practice, they rarely ticket for permit violations, but always ticket for street sweeping violations and often “wheel not turned in”.
There is an overnight paid lot two blocks away in the DMV lot as a last resort. You can park there all day on weekends and until 7am on weekdays.
Check in is at 4pm and check out is at noon. Quiet hours are after 10pm and before 7am. We do not tolerate parties. Absolutely NO SMOKING on the premises. Renter agrees that owner and owner affiliates are not responsible for any personal property loss or personal injury that may result from the planned rental.
Great central location in the Haight and lovely apartment. I would recommend this listing to anyone visiting San Francisco.
Frank was a wonderful host. We found a bottle of wine waiting for us as well as everything one may need during our stay. The house is beautiful, incredibly well taken care of, and extremely well located, walking distance to Golden Gate Park and in the center of the fabulous Lower Haight neighborhood. Frank had great recommendations for restaurants and bars as well as other very useful information on how to get around, things to do, etc. We had a wonderful stay. Thanks so much Frank?
My Husband and I loved this amazingly beautiful home! The bed was beyond comfortable and I liked the ability to make coffee in the morning and sit by the front window watching people walk by. What a treat! I would book it again. Thank you!
This home was perfect. It was clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of extra bedding. We could walk to lots of restaurants and we found free parking right across the street. Our host, Frank, made sure we were well informed before we arrived, and we didn't need to contact him for anything. We had a wonderful time, and if we go back to the city we would definitely stay here again.
Absolutely beautiful apartment and very central to lots of things. Check-in was very easy and the place was immaculate. The house is large with two full bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, dinning room. The house has a "San Francisco" feel as it is a marvelous Victorian building.
Everything was exactly as advertised. This spot was exactly what we were hoping for when we decided to spend the last day of our trip in San Francisco. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless. The house was decorated very well and lived up to and exceeded all of our expectations. Frank had a printout of the information for the rental, as well as some restaurant suggestions. We walked to dinner through one of the nearby parks and loved being so close to so many options.
I would love to stay here again the next time I come through San Francisco and would definitely suggest it for any friends or family traveling through the area. It would be great for a family or a few friends who are interested in the slower pace of a family neighborhood while still looking to be near an active city center.
The host thought of everything, right down to the creamer for coffee. The attention to detail was spot on. I loved the location and the house as a whole.
