About this listing
This is the bedroom, with super comfy bed and soothing earth-tone fabrics. You can see the hills above Cole Valley in the distance.
This lovely 1-bedroom apartment in Cole Valley has its own entrance, kitchen, bathroom and private deck overlooking the city is a separate unit and takes up the entire top floor of our classic Victorian house. It is decorated with soothing earth-tone fabrics and charming seascape paintings, and will be a relaxing retreat whether you're in town for work or vacation. (See notes on PARKING in last paragraph below)
It has one extremely comfortable queen-sized bed and chaise with terrific views of the city, and a living room with a couch that folds out to a double bed, kitchen and desk, with VCR and TV (with cable, including HBO and Showtime) and internet. The large deck also has magnificent views of the city.
It is situated in lovely Cole Valley, in walking distance of UCSF and its shuttles to Mission Bay and elsewhere. It is a short walk to Golden Gate Park (great for running, walking, or just exploring beautiful gardens and nature), the Haight-Ashbury, and steps from public transportation (1 block to the bus stop, 2 blocks to the N-Judah train stop; we do not have a garage) and very close to the charming restaurants, shops and services of Cole Valley and the Haight (including a short jaunt to Whole Foods and other natural food stores).
This apartment is perfect if you're in town for work (especially at UCSF), or just in town to relax and visit!
I will mention that to get to this lovely apartment does involve lots of stairs to climb, since it's on the 4th floor and set above the street. But the view and light are well worth the climb.
In terms of getting to the apartment from the airport, you can take a cab here, a bus, the Super Shuttle (a very inexpensive, great way to get here-- just (website hidden) "Super Shuttle" to check fares and schedule a pick-up/ drop-off), or the MUNI train (it's right on the N line-- towards Ocean Beach if you're coming from downtown/ Civic Center; the N-Judah if you're coming from the other direction). Getting here with public transportation is very inexpensive and very easy. You just take BART to the Civic Center stop from the airport, and transfer to the MUNI "N" line, going toward Ocean Beach. Our stop is Stanyan Street (at the intersection of Stanyan and Carl streets).
We are extremely close to multiple MUNI stops (San Francisco's public transportation system), so public transportation is easy, cheap and plentiful. However, if you're driving, please note that while we don't have a parking spot, it's a fairly easy neighborhood to find free parking in. However, while parking is free, it is not unlimited. They ticket every two hours from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, so you need to either move your car by 10 am (not too hard, there are usually spots to be found, and most people start their day by then anyway), or park in a nearby parking lot (Kezar Parking Lot is within a 10 minute walk down the street on Stanyan near Frederick Street, and you can pay to park all day for ~$20-~25 for 24 hours, should you want to leave your car there for the day). There are also some streets nearby (Rivoli street, for example) where you can park round the clock for ~48 hours for free and they don't ticket, but you have to search a bit for those spots as everyone wants them!
While this is a self-contained unit within the building with its own entrance, it is still a private home with a family living below. In addition, there are tenants who live on the ground floor, so please be quiet in the evening/ early morning when leaving and returning home, as sound travels easily, and we don't want to deprive anyone of their sleep and sense of privacy. We expect kindness and respect, no crazy loud parties at all hours of the night, absolutely no smoking inside or out, and just general decency. We're pretty chill hosts, and enjoy swell people. Just be nice, and leave the place as nice and tidy as you found it. :-)
When your stay is over, please strip the bed and place all the sheets and towels on the floor in the hallway between the bedroom and kitchen (outside the bathroom). Please make sure all dishes and kitchen utensils, etc. are clean, and that there is no food left in the fridge or in the drawers. Any garbage should be thrown out in the large garbage cans along the side of the house. Let us know when you're leaving so we can be there to retrieve the house keys-- thank you so much!
This is the bedroom, with queen sized bed; there is an additional twin bed tucked away in an alcove.
We had a wonderful stay. Stacy & family are very friendly and welcoming. The house is charming and cosy, the beds are confortable and the terrasse is perfect for breakfast.
We were delighted :)
Très bonne et première expérience avec AirBnB. L'appartement est parfait, merci Stacy !
Fantastic place and amazing views for a family exploring San Francisco! And a great host that really made sure everything was top notch!
Stacey's apartment was perfect for us. We loved the neighborhood and the proximity to Golden Gate Park. There are fantastic restaurants and shops nearby. When we had questions, Stacey responded in less than a minute! We are so glad we stayed there instead of a standard hotel or motel. We felt we lived among the locals. The place and views of the city were beautiful. Thank you, Stacey! We highly recommend Stacey's place. This was a great first airbnb experience!
Die Wohnung hält in jeder Beziehung was die Bilder versprechen. Super Lage mit einem traumhaften Blick über die Stadt.
Die Ausstattung lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig, so dass einem entspannten Urlaub nichts im Wege steht.
Die Parkplatzsituation ist typisch für die Stadt, aber in wenigen Gehminuten Entfernung ist ein kostenpflichtiger Parkplatz.
Stacey ist eine sehr aufmerksame Gastgeberin, die persönlich nicht in Erscheinung tritt, aber immer präsent ist und mit Tips und Ratschlägen weiter hilft.
Alles in in allem ein perfekter Aufenthalt und uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert!
The check-in was really well organised and the house was lovely. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine really topped off our stay!
Our host was very friendly and welcoming. She met us at the gate and was sweet and helpful. She was very communicative and helpful prior to our arrival. Her descriptions were very clear, specific and helpful.

About the Host, Stacey
Hello! I'm a friendly, open, intellectually curious and creative artist / mother / wife, world traveler and explorer.
I love: a comfy couch + a new book, preferably with a hot cup of tea; a clean kitchen + bathroom; honest, friendly, like-minded people; and cooking + eating delicious food. I love Paris, Istanbul, London, NYC + LA and just about anywhere in Italy.
As an Airbnb host, I'm here if you need me, invisible if you don't. I love sharing recommendations for restaurants or help with anything you might need; I'm an expert on what to do/ where to go if you're visiting San Francisco with kids. If you prefer privacy, I'll make sure you feel like you're in your home-away-from-home, free of intrusion. I take my Airbnb hosting responsibilities seriously, and aim to make your visit to San Francisco as lovely, comfortable, and memorable as possible! I adore my city, and look forward to sharing with you all it has to offer.
