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!
The apartment was exactly as described. Beautiful views of the city. Super convenient!
Thanks Stacy for preparing a neat and comfort room for us. We enjoyed staying there. Stacy is very nice.
My wife and I spent just over a week in Stacey's attic apartment. It is a charming place, with great views from the deck. It is more or less as described by Stacey, so read the ample information she gives if you're considering staying there.
It is compact, particularly the kitchen area, which is not designed nor equipped for making meals. Fortunately, there are many fine restaurants close by at all price levels.
The location would be difficult to beat. It's very convenient for either public transport or for those who prefer walking. We had a car with us and found free on street parking during the whole of our stay within 10 to 15 minutes walk of the apartment.
Bearing in mind the outrageous price of accommodation in San Francisco, Stacey's apartment is really good value for money. We would recommend it to any couple or small family, who plan on eating their main meals out (and who can cope with the stairs).
Great location, great views, easy access to the best SF has to offer. The apartment was as pictured and described or better. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back!
Couldn't have chosen a more perfect place for a weekend in San Fran. beautiful view, great deck, and excellent proximity to several cool areas of the city. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Everything about the house was just as I expected great house great location
The loft was really sunny, felt clean and was super unique. I would rate it high on the adventure side with the rooftop deck (awesome views) and spiral staircase. Definitely better than a typical hotel type experience with a stock room. The view from the chaise lounge chair was spectacular and I loved that part the most. We were traveling with two kids under 3, I was a little nervous about the height at first but felt used to it by the second day and my three year old did well with the staircase. Bringing the luggage up the staircase was the only part I didn't like and after seeing that there was a downstairs loft (probably wasn't available for the dates I selected) for our situation with wee ones I might rent that one next time. The neighborhood was great with a playground across the street, walking distance to Koret playground in GG park (definitely visit if you have kids) and nice restaurants and groceries close by. I really enjoyed the loft and it's clear that Stacey is a good host who takes care of the property and her guests! Thanks 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.
