Hi! We're experienced Airbnb hosts who understand the challenges you face when visiting a new city. Think of us as your friends who live in San Francisco who are there to help you have a unique and memorable experience.
Here are some details our previous guests have found to be useful.
* King Bed (pillow-top mattress and additional mattress pad)
* Couch (comfortable to sleep a third guest)
* A "pack and play" cot for infants and babies
* Flat panel TV
* Iron and Ironing Board
* Blow Dryer
* Extra sets of bed sheets and towels
* Big Dining Table w/ 6 Chairs
* Kitchen Supplies
* Shower with Tub
* Laundry on site in basement with washer and dryer
* Ground floor unit in rear of building (quiet)
If you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you are looking to do while in San Francisco, we would love to provide personalized guidance on what to do on your visit and how to get around. SF has so much to offer and there are quite unique experiences if you know the local scene.
* All prices are subject to change without notice prior to booking.
The building doesn't have any shared space or amenities, however, you will have full access to everything inside the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
Since you will be booking the entire apartment, we won't be on site during your stay. However, we do meet up with you to check you in, and we make ourselves very available via phone and email if you encounter any problems. On occasion, due to work schedules, or traveling, we may not be the ones to meet up for the check-in, but we have trusted friends who will meet you in our place.
The apartment is centrally located in Nob Hill., a short walk (less than 1mile) from:
* China Town
* Grace Cathedral
* Union Square
* Polk St. bars, restaurants and nightlife
* Lafayette Park (free outdoor tennis)
* Lombard St.
A slightly further walk (1-2 miles) to the following locations:
* North Beach
* China Town
* Fisherman's Wharf
* Ferry Building
* Financial District
The best thing about the neighborhood is it is safe to walk around at night, unlike some neighborhoods so close to downtown and many bus lines and cable car lines within 1 min.
The apartment is close to multiple forms of public transportation due to its central location within the city.
If you have specific questions about how to get around, please send us an inquiry, and we are happy to provide guidance about how best to get around given your specific requirements.
Other Things to Note
As a bonus, we include two passes for unlimited rides on the Muni around the city with your booking. Muni is the public bus system in the city of San Francisco. This doesn't include BART, but it does include the cable cars. Which is particularly great since you are right by two cable car lines - the Hyde car takes you to Ghirardelli Square and the California car takes you downtown with iconic views of the city.
Please: No smoking (not even out the window). No pets. No shoes inside (cities are dirty, but I want to create a clean sanctuary for you)
Keep the noise down at night. I've never gotten complaints from my neighbor, but this is an apartment, not a hotel.
Clean the kitchen appliances shortly after you use them.
Do not host events/parties/ or overnights in the apartment.
Otherwise, consider me a friend, and just treat my home accordingly... :)
Cata and her husband were wonderful hosts. They were very accommodating , I arrived quite late. The apartment is just as picture actually quite large, clean and well equipped. The apartment is located in a great area of San Francisco, close to everything. The cable car. I would happily stay at Cata's place again.
Thank you Cata and Sina for a wonderful stay in San Fran. Having a little bit of home while working for 3 weeks was a nice treat. Very clean and nice apartment.
Excellent location! Very spacious apartment and excellent bed (I slept very well). Definitely recommended.
The condo is in a lovely urban neighborhood and the rooms are bright and cheery. We had ample space and felt very safe day & night. There were plenty of blankets and pillows, and there's even a basket of sample products in the bathroom (we brought our own!). The kitchen is well supplied and everything is clean and tidy. We were very happy here--definitely a high point of our very excellent trip to San Francisco.
The description and pictures of the apartment were spot on! Cata was extremely flexible and responsive when we coordinated acquiring the keys and figuring out logistics. Location was fantastic; with a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's within blocks.
The place was great! I highly recommend this rental!
Great neighborhood conveniently located between Mission, Marina, Castro, and Union Square.
Apt very clean and cozy. Met all the basic requirements; plenty of hot water for showers, good water pressure, comfy bed, stocked kitchen, and wifi. There is a Trader Joes one block away and Thai restaurant on corner.
Hosts Sina & Cata were very warm & welcoming. Sina greeted us when we first arrived to walk thru apt and cover any questions. We had a later flight on our last day there and they were kind enough to accommodate our luggage.
While there we recommend (website hidden) hike to Twin Peaks. Also try bike ride from Golden Gate Park to Golden Gate Bridge and over to Sausalito.
Cata and Sina were excellent hosts! They provided detailed, clear directions and responded promptly to questions/requests. The home was clean, well-equipped (kitchen equipment, bathroom supplies), and in a convenient location. I felt right at home in San Francisco!
