About this listing
Spacious 1 BR in prime San Francisco location. Located on the edge of the park providing a great balance of the bustling Haight life (bars, restaurants, shopping) and the expansive natural beauty of Golden Gate and it's many museums contained within.
View overlooking the extension of Golden Gate Park locals refer to as "The Panhandle".
Well maintained apartment overlooking the panhandle park in a quiet 4 unit Victorian building. Perfect location close to Haight Ashbury restaurants and shops and Golden Gate Park's natural beauty and museums. Essentially this is an ideal, safe, & central location for an out of town visitor!
Our home is great for a couple, but the large living room also has a day bed which can be converted into a queen in order to sleep an additional two. There is an office and wifi for those that are needing to get some work done.
The apartment comes equipped with a lush Temperpedic bed with fresh linens, towels, dishware, cookware, utensils, kitchen appliances, hair dryer, and iron. Because we live in this space, you can probably find absolutely anything you need, however that also means you will not find cabinets, drawers, closets and the fridge empty. While this may not be ideal for everyone as a rental, it will provide you with the true experience of living in a cozy SF apartment! The place will of course be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival.
We have cable, a large movie selection, and wide variety of games for those looking to play. I will leave maps and recommendations for local spots I highly recommend. And should you want to stay close to home, there is also a beautiful private garden in the back which is great to relax in. It also may be possible to arrange parking for a small fee though street parking is available and ample (no residential tag needed).
Interaction with Guests
While I'd love to show you around San Francisco personally, the reason our apartment is available to you is because we are out of town. Therefore, don't expect much interaction beyond a key transfer. However, I'll prepare you with local suggestions prior to your stay and am always available by phone should you have any questions or need assistance. I am sure by staying in our curated apartment in the lively Haight neighborhood and checking out some of our local recommendations, you'll leave SF with a good taste of the city.
If there's any area of San Francisco that evokes images of the long-gone '60s hippie culture, Haight Ashbury is it. But save for a few hippie relics, the Haight today is a whole new scene. Exclusive boutiques, high-end vintage-clothing shops, Internet cafés, lively bars and hip restaurants have all settled in, making the Haight one of San Francisco's commercial centers. It also is bordered by Golden Gate park with a beautiful, sprawling landscape and cultural attractions such as the California Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung museum.
There is easy access to public transportation (Muni N line nearby) should you want to go downtown or to the ocean. There's also buses and taxis that are easy to catch on Haight st. at any time of day.
Other Things to Note
Please message me if you have any additional questions or want to inquire about availability.
No parties, and please try to leave the place in the same order as it was when you arrived. If you break something accidentally, please let me know. If it's anything big it can be covered by insurance. If it's small, at least I know to replace the item! Thanks!
We had an amazing stay here! The apartment was perfect! It is close to everything we needed (Golden gate park, Wholefoods, bars and restaurants). Kate responded quickly and was super friendly and helpful. Perfect stay to finish our honeymoon!
My friends and I really enjoyed our stay. Great location and really nice place! Kate was super responsive and also gave great tips on what to see and do in the city.
Kate's apartment was the perfect weekend home. The house is decorated beautifully so you feel right at home the minute you walk in. Kate was really helpful, before, during and after our stay. She had listed out how things work in the house but also things to do around town. Which was perfect because the location of the apt is so ideal, there were a lot of things just walking distance from her house. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting SF, either alone or with a bunch of friends.
Kate was wonderful in accommodating my family's stay at her place. They enjoyed their stay, especially the great location, along with the conveniences of a home.
Kate was wonderful to interact with online, and so quick to reply to messages! She provided all the info I needed and made herself available for questions via phone or email at all times. The apartment was just as advertised--adorable, cozy and full of houseplants and sunshine!
The neighborhood was also perfect for our needs, right on the edge of Golden Gate park and 2 small blocks from the great vintage shopping on Haight.
I also really appreciated that Kate took a chance on me as a new Airbnb user. I did my best to earn and keep her trust, as I'd love to stay here again sometime! This apartment (and it's owners) are top notch!
the apartment was clean, nicely decorated, and homey, with plenty of space for my brother and me to stretch out. the sofa/bed was very comfortable, and a good option for those needing more than one bed.
i esp appreciated the kitchen where we stored left-overs and breakfast stuff for the next day's meals.
the apt. is ideally located for those wanting to explore the haight-ashbury neighborhood and the golden gate park.
and, yes, street parking is easy to find!
Lovely apartment in great neighborhood. Our host made us feel elcome and was easy to communicate with. She left a ton of information for us and was very responsive when we had questions. The apt was a little tight for the 4 of us but great for 2 or 3. With a great kitchen and lots of amenities. Also, as the host said in her description, this is their apt with all of their stuff so there is not much room for suitcases, clothing, unpacking. Very wonderful time for us in San Fran.
