A bright, comfortable guest room & bathroom in a light-filled apartment with everything you need, just steps from the best shopping, dining and exploring The Mission has to offer. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, soft sheets and the feeling of home.
The perfect location! Your own luxurious, beautiful, bright room with own bathroom and walk-in closet, hi-speed WiFi, gourmet kitchen, plenty of light and a creative atmosphere within seconds of the best dining in SF and a truly eclectic, colorful and fun locale. A warm welcome to The Mission District!
You'll be one block from Valencia Corridor and 19th St corner, three blocks from Dolores Park and Bi Rite Grocery (watch out!). A ten minute walk to The Castro or Noe Valley, and 15 minutes to Potrero, SOMA, Haight or Bernal. Just a few short blocks to Four Barrel Coffee, the best in SF, or Ritual, a close second. Bart and Muni lines are within a few short blocks. It's a luxurious 10 minutes to reach Downtown on public transport, and only 15 to SFO Airport by car.
The home is a two bedroom, two bath in a compound with one other apartment (downstairs) that I share with the owners of the building.

Zoe knows how to make the guest experience equally pleasant and comfortable in a clean and cool space. She sets a standard for all Airbnb to shoot for.
Enjoyed to stay in the apartment and I felt at home in mission. Zoe was a fantastic host, and helped me to make the stay memorable.
My first stay was so good I decided to extend it :) This fact alone speaks for itself : go for it, Zoe is the perfect host!
Zoe is the ultimate host, she makes you feel home in a second and is very friendly. Her place is just like her: naturally sophisticated and full of positive energy. Zoe did an incredible job decorating the apartment, everything is like on the pictures and described, even better actually. The house is one of the most beautiful in the street. No need to say communication and organization went very smoothly, everything was easy and perfect. Staying with Zoe will definitely make your trip special, plus the listing is in the best part of the mission, I highly recommend it!!! Thanks for everything Zoe :)
Zoe was quick to respond, easy and flexible to coordinate with for check in, and a warm and welcoming host. A real ' the shift off my back ' human being, and someone I hope to stay with again and keep in touch with. Had a friend like her when I lived in SF, it's likely I'd still reside there!
I stayed with Zoe three times. My plan is to go back!
I have been to many places, but still in my ranking:
Zoe is the most amazing host,
her apartment in Mission is the best place to stay in SF,
and Rabbit is the best cat ever!
I definitely recommend it!
You should also know that: photos on the website reflect perfectly how Zoe’s place looks like. It is a beautiful place, very relaxed, and clean. The Mission district is in my view is the most interesting part of the city. If you want to feel real atmosphere of San Francisco, you should choose Zoe’s place.
It was an awesome stay with Zoe! the house is on a very convenient location, easy to access to a lot of great restaurants and stores. I really enjoyed it. Zoe is such a great host!
