Cozy, retro, ground level studio with private entrance located two blocks from BART and close to dozens of restaurants, cafes and shops.
Welcome to the Mission and to our garden studio. The Mission District is a really fun and unique neighborhood. While you are here make sure to check out Dolores Park (which is three blocks away), tour the many murals, and grab a burrito at a taqueria. We are here to answer any questions about the nieghborhood. Jessie has lived here for over 10 years and Sebouh has lived here for over 30 years!
The studio is located on a quiet side street one block away from dozens of restaurants such as Dosa, Range, Foreign Cinema, and Spork, bars (Make Out Room, El Techo, Latin American Club), theaters (Alamo Drafthouse, March Theatre), and cafes (Ritual, Revolution Cafe).
We are four blocks away from other popular destinations of Tartine, Delfina and BiRite Creamery.
BART is a two and a half block walk and major city bus lines are half a block away. There is an independent video store and local bookstores also within two blocks. There is a local organic market a block away and a Farmer's Market on our block every Thursday afternoon. Parking is limited to meters and one hour spots. There is a parking garage across the street from the house. If you are coming with a car, please ask Jessie to show you where there are one week parking spots in the neighborhood.
The studio is located on the garden level of a two story 1890's Victorian home (we've had the foundation re-built so this is a sturdy and earthquake safe home). There are two front, street facing windows. Luckily the street noise is at a minimum despite being one block away from the hubbub of Valencia Street. The studio is cozy and uniquely decorated with full kitchen and bathroom, double bed and day bed. There is a flat screen tv with cable and WiFi access. We provide fresh linens and towels. If there is something missing from the kitchen please let us know and we'll do our best to get it for you. The bathroom features a clawfoot bathtub and a bidet. There is also a closet and dresser to store your clothes. There is a small heater which really cranks up the heat when turned on.
There are extra pillows and blankets in the closet so please help yourself.
Late arrival fee:
If you arrive for check-in past 11pm, we charge a $25 late check-in fee. we understand that life happens and sometimes planes get delayed etc....but we still have to go to work in the morning and a late check-in can be difficult for us.
You will have a private entrance, studio apartment and private bathroom.
Interaction with guests
We will meet with you when you check in and be available 24/7 to answer questions and concerns. We live upstairs and have our own entrance so won't interact with you on a daily basis. However, we are always happy to meet up, show you around the neighborhood, or make suggestions about fun things to do in our beautiful city!
We ask for you to sign a brief rental agreement and release form when you arrive.
No smoking inside the house.
Please contact us by phone or email after you have made your reservation so that we can confirm what time you will be arriving.
The doorbell to the house is turned down so it is important that you call us by phone when you arrive. At that time we will give you two keys to the house, one for the outer door and one for the actual studio apartment.
We ask you to please not place any clothing items, towels, or anything on top of the heater. Also please turn the heater off when you leave the studio. Help us to conserve energy.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call. Seb and I are both happy to help you with restaurant tips, parking hints, and anything else that can help you have a relaxing stay with us. We hope you have a memorable stay in our beautiful neighborhood.

Seb and I have been hosting guests on Airbnb since 2010. We have a 1 year old baby. I work as a psychologist with kids and spend weekends working in my garden, cooking, relaxing around the neighborhood. I have lived in the Mission for last 14 years and love talking about the neighborhood, world travels and good places to eat. I have lived abroad in East Africa and traveled in Europe and Central/South America. I love learning about new places to visit, especially coastal spots and warm spots, and trying new foods. Our profile pictures are shots of us traveling in Mexico, Spain, France and Armenia.
We live in this apartment too, so you will see us hanging out in the kitchen and common areas. Our bedroom is towards the back of the house, while the three guest rooms are in the front of the house. I try to balance visiting with guests and having alone time. The house tends to be pretty quiet and mellow. We specifically do not rent to couples so that there are a max of three guests at any time.
Sebouh lives downstairs and you will see him occasionally. He speaks fluent Armenian and is a plumber and works out of our house, so he comes and goes throughout the day.
