About this listing
The apartment is a wonderful place to set your bags down and reach out into the city. It is well located in the most central part of San Francisco, and has easy access to public transport to get to other parts of the city. It's an amazing area.
We have a lovely studio apartment in a great neighborhood just between the Univ. of San Francisco and 2 blocks from the Panhandle. Walking distance to the beginning of Golden Gate Park, the Haight Ashbury district, Alamo Square and the great Divisadero corridor. Great location, access to public transit is excellent, fantastic restaurants and cafes, museums and all San Francisco has to offer. The apartment is a SMALL studio, perfect for two, with a small full separate kitchen with gas stove and small full bathroom in a small building. Hardwood floors, high ceilings, tile floor bathroom, full bed, TV and BASIC cable, great stereo system, DVD player, and fully furnished. Clean, good light, and close to everything in the central part of the city. Street parking is 2 hrs. from 8am until 6pm and there is street cleaning twice a week, high speed internet in the apartment, and many fantastic cafes are in walking distance. There is no washer and dryer on premises. I'm available for advice/recommendations and want guests to be comfortable and clued into what the city is all about. I'm a SF native, and love my city. So should you!
You can expect a clean space, the apartment is cleaned after each stay. The apartment and building is quiet and private. Easy access to all the culture and beauty of San Francisco. Put your bags down and head out to the Mission district, Downtown, the Haight, Golden Gate Park etc.
The neighborhood is residential, very safe, close to everything, and charming. Anything you could need is in walking distance: restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, laundry etc. Laundry mats on both Hayes and Fulton streets, as well as dry cleaners. Everything within a block or two at the most. Street parking is two hour parking between 8am and 6pm, then parking is ample in the neighborhood.
Bus lines, laundry mat, shopping and more are within a block of the apartment on Hayes and Fulton Street. Grocery shopping is ample: Whole Foods on Haight and Stanyan, or other grocery stores on Masonic and Fulton. Plenty of small bodegas etc.
The 5 Fulton, 21 Hayes and other major bus lines are within a block or less of the apartment.
San Francisco is a world class food city. Check out NOPA on Hayes and Divisadero, Serpentine, Slow Club, Flour and Water, Locanda, or the Kezar bar andrestaurant in Cole Valley just to name a few. Not to mention amazing cuisine of all types close by. Ask for other recommendations and I'd be more than happy to give suggestions.
Looking for hiking, biking, walking or strolling? Marin County is just across the Golden Gate Bridge. Mt. Tam has some of the best mountain biking, hiking and road biking in the region. I know it well.
The building is old and the apartment quaint, but it's an excellent place to crash and make home base while you explore the city. It is not a modern apartment but a great place to drop your bags and head out.
Please familiarize yourselves with the check in and check out times in the house rules section. I live in Marin and commute into the city to handle the apartment. I work nights as well, so please coordinate your timing for check in and check out with me well in advance. I'm flexible.
Amenities include a color TV, basic cable, high speed internet, great stereo system, full little kitchen and shower with bathtub. It's a pretty basic setup, so enjoy and get into San Francisco's amazing culture and entertainment.
Contact me directly to coordinate key pick up. There is a self check in option as well.

As much or as little as desired. I like to meet the guests but doesn't always accure due to late check in.
