Apartment is private and self-contained. Owner is available to answer any questions you may have about San Francisco. I am usually at home and happy to help but won't intrude.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is on the flat so ideal for walking or biking (you may borrow my bike). It is close to shopping, restaurants, parks, transportation, (website hidden) buses etc. You will love it!

Inexpensive xpress buses and regular bus service to downtown and other areas, cross town, Golden Gate Bridge and Marin, and a bus connects to the train station to towns on the Peninsula. Very easy.

  • Alexandra was very welcoming and helpful. The garden studio was charming and as previous reviewers have commented the garden is an attractive feature. The location suited me perfectly as I could walk to the bus stop and also to where my daughter lived, supermarket is close by and of course the Marina.
    For anyone looking for somewhere private, secure and in a good location this is perfect.

  • Alexandra's studio was awesome! Clean and comfortable space with all the amenities needed. Many cups of coffee were consumed in her garden, under warm sunshine and lots of greenery. She was easy and very quick to communicate with as well. The location was great -5 minutes walk to Safeway (open 24 hours) and 5 minutes to Chestnut St, full of cool restaurants, some cinemas, cafes, clothing shops and a bookstore. Close to transportation; the 22 bus takes you all the way down Fillmore, right into Japantown, among other places. I would most definitely stay again!

  • Alexandra's place is lovely. Very quiet with a private garden. Useful facilities. The location is great : closed to the marina, supermarket, Starbucks, chestnut street (very nice !), easy to park (except the week-end) and Alexandra has been a great host. I definitely recommends this place.

  • Alexandra has been a great host and has accommodated every other need I had. She was very easy to communicate and her place is in such a great location-close to city's most popular restaurants, bars and cafes and there is a Safeway 7/24 within 5min walking distance. I would definitely recommend this place if you are planning on living like a local in San Francisco.

  • We had a very nice stay at Alexandra's. The garden was beautiful and frequently visited by hummingbirds. The garden is a perfect place to hide away from the wind and enjoy the sun. Alexandra was very kind and responsive to any small needs we had.

  • Great studio! I am a business traveler on an assignment in SF from NYC. I am from SF originally so knew what I was looking for. The place was clean, convenient to Chestnut street bars/ restaurants, walking distance to Union street and Fillmore. Alexandra was a great host. The garden was my favorite part about the apt.. Was nice to sit out on sunny days. Would def recommend to others.

  • I consider myself lucky to find such a lovely place in the heart of the Marina. I was able to enjoy a comfortable and well-equipped apartment and I could enjoy the beautiful garden.
    Alexandra is a great host, always available to ensure you stay warm.

  • A wonderful apartment managed by a wonderful host! Nestled in an ideal location in the heart of San Francisco, you are only minutes away from the beach, a stone’s throw from the Golden Gate Bridge and just walking distance to Downtown. I stayed in Alex’s apartment for over a month and everything was perfect. A cozy, quiet, and self-contained apartment, it has everything you will ever need. Alex was a terrific host. I was a stranger to the city, but thanks to Alex, she made me feel so at home. Alex was not a good host but rather the perfect host, and thus you could not pick a better place to stay in San Francisco than with Alex.

About
Hi, I'm Alexandra, English born, but have lived in San Francisco for many years and raised two boys in this wonderful city. I love to travel, enjoy movies and the arts (great theater, opera, opera symphony and many other local events ). I also enjoy the varied restaurants here close to my house. I also enjoy reading and walking and bicycling here, especially out to the Golden Gate Bridge which is only about 3 miles from my house. I also enjoy the unique museums we have here and enjoy storytelling to school children at the Asian Art Museum I enjoy meeting people from out of town. I have also lived in London and Paris. My life motto is enjoy and do the best you can. How about you?
