About this listing
Our comfortable studio is wonderfully centrally located. You can get anywhere in the city in just a few minutes-walk to Golden Gate Park or the Haight. We make parking easy and morning coffe in the east-facing garden is a great way to start your day!
This 600sq foot studio apartment comes with a full kitchen and bathroom. access to a washer and dryer, use of the delightful garden and is decorated with Japanese art and antiques. WIFI and full cable with DVR is included as well as a cosy electric fire place for those cold San Francisco days. There is a queen-sized bed and the large sectional sofa opens into an additional queen-sized bed for additional sleeping. We also have futons available for children when parents want to leave the sofa as a sofa. We love children and do not charge for children 12 and under. Located right in the middle of San Francisco, we are no more than 10 minutes from downtown or both bridges for trips outside the city. There are great restaurants nearby, and public transportation is easy with a bus stop on the corner. There are two grocery stores within walking distance. We let guests park in our driveway when parking is tight, so parking is never an issue. Having spent 30 years in the USNavy we know what it is like to travel and we endeavor to make our guests stays a refuge. We are available to help in any way---suggestions for restaurants, sites, directions, whatever our guests need. We want their stay in our city and apartment to be a delight.
All guests have access to our east facing garden which is a wonderful place to have morning coffee!
The washer and dryer are shared and we just ask that our guests respect that we all work and usually do our own wash on weekends.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the flat above this guest apartment and are here to help if you want. We love giving recommendations on restaurants and sites. We respect your privacy, but are here evenings and weekends....except when we are skiing or traveling ourselves!
We love that we are so centrally located that we are within walking distance of great restaurants, two super grocery stores including Trader Joes, the new San Francisco City Target, and just a short walk from Golden Gate Park. We are able to live here with one car because we can walk almost anywhere we want.
The bus stop is at the end of our block and you can literally get anywhere in San Francisco by bus. There are also taxis and the new ride share programs like Pink Mustache.
If you are bringing a car, parking in our neighborhood is quite easy and when it is not we allow our guests to park in our driveway.
Without traffic our house is less than 20 minutes from SFO. With traffic it is anyone's guess, but we never allow over 30 minutes to get there and have always made it on time. Just ask us for our route!
