Close to Van Ness #49 bus that goes straight to the Mission District. Five minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Ten minutes walk to amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

2 rooms w/ big bay windows. I love my apt and you will too! Sooo big! Street parking only. The Polk St bus runs 'til midnight on my street so it can be a little loud at night due to that. I often use earplugs because I am a light sleeper. You won't notice it otherwise, only when it's quiet.
The location and convenience to adjacent neighborhoods: North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Russian Hill, shopping on Chestnut, Union and Polk, and Lombard St. Polk St is a wonderful little neighborhoods that tends to be less tourist-centric than its overcrowded but lovely cousin, North Beach.
Public transport is just a block away. The 45-Union to head over the hill to North Beach is 3 blocks aways. The cable car line (Hyde St) is also just two blocks away.
This is a six apartment building with kind, quiet neighbors. We are all very respectful, we live our own lives but say hello, and I only ask that you are of the same mindset. Absolutely no smoking, no loud parties please. Mature adults only. It's not the best environment for young children - too many things to get broken. Some of my furniture 100% requires coasters. I've, sadly, already made some errors.
I'm a well-traveled professional who has been working in the bicycle industry for the last seventeen years. I have swapped my apt several times in the past with strangers and friends - before joining airbnb, and have always been open to sharing my space with like-minded, respectful individuals.
