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 have just returned from a great couple of weeks in California. One of our highlights was Stacey's apartment in Cole Valley. The apartment was great - at the top of the building we had superb views out over the city and we enjoyed sitting out on the decking. It was so nice to have space in which to chill out as well a very comfy bedroom. The bathroom is bright and airy with plenty of hot water and a good shower. Cole Valley was so quiet. The area is full of local shops and cafes. Very family orientated with streets of attractive, colourful housing. We'll be back!
What an amazing view! The apartment is at the top of a lovely old building in a charming residential part of town. There are some nice restaurants and cafes close, and the area feels very safe and nice.
The apartment was clean and spacious and we really enjoyed our stay.
Stacey’s apartment is nice and spacious with great views of the city. No parking issues for us, we were lucky enough to be able to park right in front of the house both nights we stayed. We had a great time exploring San Francisco. We only met Stacey and Hadar briefly when we arrived, but they left plenty of tips for the local area. Would thoroughly recommend Padrecito on Cole St. for dinner - great place, great food!
die wohnung war sehr schön,gut ausgestattet und sauber. da sich die wohnung im dachgeschoss befand hatte man einen ausblick über ganz san fransico der wunder schön war .
der einzigste nachteil war das man viele treppen bis zur wohnung ersteigen musste die sehr schmal waren und mit den grossen koffern nicht so einfach war .und wie allgemein in der usa ist die parkplatz situation nicht so einfach.
Stacey was a great host! The apartment was perfect for a night in San Francisco. The place was charming and had a great view of the city. I would come back and stay there again.

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.

We take our Airbnb hosting responsibilities seriously, and aim to make your visit to San Francisco as lovely, comfortable, and enjoyable as possible! :-)
