The Space

Studio apartment with amazing view of the City. Includes upright piano, kitchen, bathroom and queen-sized futon. Spacious and cozy, centrally located near many bus lines and Civic Center BART station. Street parking easily available. Coin operated laundry in the building. Accommodates one person only.

The neighborhood is called Cathedral Hill (right behind Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption--or mother Maytag, as it is called because the church looks like a washing machine turbine).

Within ten minutes walking distance to Japantown--shops and restaurants (to the North), ten minutes to Hayes Valley--boutique shops, great coffee (South), Western Addition (West) and Van Ness corridor (East). Fillmore Jazz district is a ten minute walk away.

Bus lines include: #31 Balboa, #38 Geary (these buses take you right to downtown Union Square), within fifteen minutes to Civic Center BART station. Also close by are bus lines #5 McAllister, #2 and #3. You can take the #5 or #31 west and be at Ocean beach within 20 minutes (bring layers--it gets cold). The #49 goes along Van Ness, and you can be in the Marina in 20 mins if you go North, or you can be in the Mission in 30 minutes if you go South. Also #24 Divisadero runs North/South.

The apartment is quiet (no partiers), but there are audible police and fire engine sirens from the road. There's a great 1/3 acre urban farm right at the corner of Gough and Eddy (free produce for volunteers on Wednesdays and Saturdays).

Bring your walking shoes and be prepared for those hills!

  • Kristina's apt is really lovely. It is exactly like the pics.
    It is well located, with bus lines close by.
    Kristina was really nice, let us know the BART (i.e., subway) was on strike prior we arrived so that I can change my transportation from the airport to her place.

  • Kristina's place was superb. The location is close to many bus routes, restaurants and attractions. The apartment was exactly as described and pictured. Kristina was extremely friendly and kept great communication leading up to the trip, key exchange, etc.

    If you get a chance to hear her play piano, she plays beautifully as well.

    I'd recommend Kristina's place and would definitely stay there again.

  • This was my first time meet an Airbnb host. Kristina (email hidden)e apartment was lovely with that awesome view, and conveniently close to several SF Muni routes. I only stayed one night for the SF Marathon and had no problems getting good rest. Kristina took the time to go over everything in the apartment, made some suggestions on nearby bagelries. She also prepared cheatsheet with Muni routes, taxi cab companies, WiFi info, etc, everything you need enjoy your stay. I highly recommend this apartment.
