Interaction with Guests
We like to meet and greet our guests and then provide them with a private experience. Unless we're needed, we may not see you your entire trip after checking in. Sometimes we bump into our guests outside and it's always great to say hello and see how things are going or answer questions about the neighborhood. We consider the studio entirely yours while you're staying with us. That said, we ask that if there is anything that you need, please let us know. A light bulb that needs replacing? Need more towels? Just ask.
The area is best enjoyed without a car. The immediate street has a two-hour parking limit for non-residents from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Street cleaning is from 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Please pay close attention to all street signs and meters when parking anywhere in San Francisco, you could get a costly ticket if you are just one minute past the legal time. There is no time-limit on street parking two blocks uphill so that is an option if you have a car, however street cleaning regulations still apply. If you need to rent a car by the day or by the hour, there is a zipcar location as well as a few citycarshare locations within three blocks of the suite. Note: If you plan to use zipcar or citycarshare you must register before your arrival so that you can get your card key by mail.
The neighborhood has streetcar and bus stops to anywhere in the city within a 1-2 minute walk. Our streetcar is the "N-Judah" metro train which will take you directly to the following areas. (Approximate times):
-Haight-Ashbury district, 8 minutes
-Union Square/Moscone Center, 16 minutes
-Financial district, 20 minutes
-AT&T Ballpark, home of the San Francisco Giants, 25 minutes

-Ocean Beach, 18 minutes

-Castro district, 15 minutes, accessible by "K,L,M" trains at nearby Forest Hills station
-Glen Park BART station, 8-10 minutes by Muni bus 44
The following Muni bus lines serve the area: 6, 43, 44, N-Judah.
Go to 511-dot-org for trip planning information. We highly recommend downloading a San Francisco Muni app. There are several good ones available on iPhone and Android. The apps will tell you to the minute when a bus or streetcar is scheduled to arrive.
Other Things to Note
Please observe quiet after 10PM, always lock doors and place any dirty dishes in the dishwasher at the end of stay. Backyard & BBQ is common area, although Studio has a separate private outdoor area additionally. Please note that occasionally the house golden retriever, "Dogo", can be found in the back yard watching the Koi fish in the pond-waterfall.
Hallway leading up to studio entrance is also common area but rarely used.

Guest agrees to take a higher degree of care in the use of the Property because of the age of the structures on the Property.

The Property is rented on regular short term periods and for a significantly higher rate than a non-vacation rental. Often a Guest is scheduled to begin a vacation in the Property on the same day as the checkout day of another prior Guest. If Guest stays even one additional day, Manager would face significant logistical problems with the next Guest, including possible liability. As such, Guest agrees to vacate immediately on the checkout day at 11:00 AM.

Indemnification: Guest agrees to release Manager from and against all liability should anyone be injured upon the premises during the term of occupancy resulting from any cause whatsoever, except in the case of personal injury caused by willful gross negligence on the part of the Manager.
Effective Date: Not withstanding any thing to the contrary, this Occupancy Agreement is binding and effective when no signature is required, and Guest's affirmative assent to the terms is expressed by Guest's reservation of the unit. If Guest desires to terminate this agreement due to lack of assent, he/she must do so within three days of the date the reservation was made.
Governing Law: The terms and conditions stated herein will be interpreted by and governed under the laws of the State of California and any action arising out of this agreement shall be litigated in the State of California's Fees: In the event of any action or proceeding commenced by any party, the prevailing party in such action or proceeding shall be entitled to recover from the other party all cost and expenses thereof, including actual attorney's fees and cost.
Invalid Provisions: If any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under present or future laws effective during the term hereof, such provision shall be fully severable and this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof; and the remaining provisions hereof shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance hereof. Furthermore, in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision there shall be added automatically as a part of the Agreement a provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible and still be legal, valid or enforceable.

Headings: Headings of the paragraphs herein are used solely for convenience and shall not be used for interpretation or construing any word, clause, paragraph or provision of this Agreement.
The hosts made us feel very welcome. Although we only saw Jeremy once and were left very much to our own devices, there was a lovely welcome note on arrival, along with some coffee and wine. When we did bump into Jeremy he gave us his favourite restaurant recommendation which was one of the best meals we've had on our holiday. Location was perfect!
This studio was nothing less than extraordinary! Only our second time time to SF and we had a blast, the studio was a perfect size and J&S were very welcoming. This place left us wanting to move here, if you come I recommend staying here!
Super communication and the apt was even better than expected. The bottle of wine was a great touch. However, being coffee lovers, a full sized Bodum and a drip coffee maker was much used. There are some staples (to be replaced) in the cupboard which made it easy for us on the first night. Loved the park, steps from our locations, Great job and thanks folks!
We enjoyed our stay at J & S studio very much. Everything was as described and they were very helpful and thoughtful with their instructions and recommendations. I would recommend this place to anyone who would like to spend a wonderful time in San Francisco.
Wonderful hosts! The place was exactly as described... we felt right at home. They were very helpful meeting any of our needs and being available if we needed them. We appreciated all the above and beyond ways they extended their hospitality; complementary beverages, toiletries, etc. We were never without an item... the place was fully stocked with all basic essentials. If we did see them, they were warm welcoming and made us feel like we were their personal guests.
From the moment we arrived we knew this was the perfect place and felt like home! The location is perfect and charming. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, chocolates and coffee! Jeremy and Shannon even provided is with a list of their favorite neighborhood restaurants. Pacific Catch was amazing - thanks for the recommendation!! Overall our experience was amazing and we cannot wait to get back! Thanks again for hosting us - it was great to meet yall!!
Beautiful, sunny, spacious and comfortable. Literally right next door to a good coffee shop, blocks away from good restaurants and 1 block from a train to downtown. Hosts are extremely friendly and accommodating.
About the Host, J&S
We are both professionals in our mid 30's... "J", outside of his sales career loves to surf, travel, sail and pretty much do any sport that involves water and has built and designed much of the back yard features. "S" is a real-estate agent who loves to help people explore the city and each of its unique neighborhoods and find the right "fit" for people looking for a home, apartment or "pied-à-terre" In her free time she loves to go for runs with our golden retriever, to spend time tending the garden's blooms, sip coffee in the many cool cafes in SF, travel and hang out with friends and family.
We both love this neighborhood for all of its diverse food options within a quick walk, having golden gate park with all of its attractions (lakes, and sunny nooks, outdoor concerts, runs, museums, tennis, lawn bowling, etc) just 200 ft away as well as being able to jump on the muni to quickly go downtown or to the the beach. We love how friendly the neighbors are and also having UCSF and the doctors who have saved so many lives, including one of our best friends who had a severe form of brain cancer.
