A Decorator's Abode

Apartment - Entire home/apt · 9th Ave, San Francisco, CA 94118, United States

The Space

Living and working as an interior stylist in San Francisco, I am constantly inspired by stylish places, cool events, chic people and beautiful things. I try to bring these inspirations and ideas into my own space. My aesthetic is global easy-glam with emphasis on comfort.

Situated in the heart of Inner Richmond/Lake district, you will find yourself one block away from the Little Chinatown, where some of the best Asian food is found in SF; stone throw from the Mountain Lake in the Presidio with many walking trails leading to beautiful vista points in SF, walking distance to GG, the de Young museum, Academy of Science. 4 main bus lines just outside the door to any major SF attractions. If you prefer to drive, there is a secured indoor garage for your use at $20/day.

Sunny and bright -- even on a foggy day, the apartment is a corner unit, situated on the top floor with 4 sets of bay windows with views of the neighborhood. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed, and one guest sleeping nook with a love seat folded down to a twin size bed. The building is aging gracefully with lots of charm. My kitchen is small but well equipped and very efficient.

Small dogs are allowed with additional cleaning deposit.

If you want to do some shopping, a night out, or a day trip to the wine country or the California Coast, my neighbor owns a limo service, special rates can be arranged. I have lived in SF for over 25 years and a shameless foodie, I can make some excellent recommendations for great dining spots and things to do.

Please No smoking or drugs, or loud parties. This is a quiet building, please respect other tenants.
Guest are expected to keep the property tidy.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Joyce's lovely apartment. It is in a great location. We were very comfortable. Joyce is very friendly and thoughtfully stocked her kitchen with breakfast foods and treats so we didn't have to market when we arrived.

  • Joyce was an amazing host! Her apt is beautiful, fun and inviting. I would highly highly recommend her!

  • Joyce's decorator's abode was exactly as advertised and very comfortable. The groceries and slippers for our use were a very nice touch and most appreciated. The apartment was centrally located near numerous shops and restaurants.
    We would highly recommend Joyce's home and look forward to staying there when we're next in San Francisco.

  • Joyce's place is so full of artistic decoration. It is not big, but you have all your need in a beautifully decorated way.Joyce had been very helpful with information about foods (as a foodie) in SF and wine country, which is a huge plus. She was nice enough to set an extra bed for us, so every one of us (3 ppl) had our own place to sleep. Please do come to stay with Joyce, you won't regret. It was a very unique experience.

  • Joyce's apartment is absolutely beautiful and provides the perfect location for a stay in San Francisco.

    We chose Richmond to be close to my cousin but it would be a suitable choice for a general sightseeing trip to the city as it is close by to some very handy bus lines.

    Joyce provided everything we needed and thoughtfully provided some milk and other essentials so we didn't have to go shopping on arrival.

    Highly recommended!

  • Joyce was a lovely person to meet and a wonderful host. She even left croissants, bagels, muffins and cookies for us. It was much appreciated!
    Her apartment is in a nice, safe, quiet neighbourhood, just a block away from little Chinatown. There's a bus you can take to Union Square just 2 blocks down the street. Will take you about 20-30 mins though.
    Because her apartment is so nicely decorated and full of ornaments and accessories, we didn't quite feel at ease in the beginning. We were a bit afraid to move around in case we'd break something, but maybe that's just us. :)

    October 2013
  • Joyce was very hospitable and my parents very much appreciated staying at her beautiful home! She has even stocked some good in the fridge for my parents! A very nice and convenient unit, and I highly recommend this place! Thank you!!

    September 2013
  • Joyce was the perfect host for my first AirBnb experience. My parents stayed at her home while visiting me in SF and they couldn't have been happier! The entire apartment is beautiful - even better than the photos. Joyce left fresh eggs, croissants and an assortment of other wonderful goods for my parents to nibble on during their stay. Thanks Joyce for an incredible experience and for making my parents so happy!

  • Joyce was a delightful host going above & beyond expectations!
    She offered to pick us up at Airport (for a reasonable fee) and gave us a tour of the city & points of interest on the way to her apartment. She provided info, brochures for local cafes transport etc. The apartment itself is incredibly stylish, whilst being homey, comfortable & equipped with all the necessities (no washer but plenty of laundries close by). Location wise - convenient to transport (all hours) safe & quiet area. Highly recommend Joyce as a host & would happily stay here again!

  • It was a real pleasure for us to stay in Joyce's apartment. Her bright bubbly personality made us feel at home straight away. The decor was charming and we just loved being a part of it. The apartment is in a lovely location and was very easy to find. The parking spot for us was an added bonus. We found communicating with Joyce was a breeze. She was available when we needed her, but she also gave us our privacy. The sleeping arrangements with a main bedroom and separate sleeping nook were perfect for the three of us. Everything is as described, but Joyce went over and above expectations by providing ample food supplies. Joyce gave us lots of information to make our stay enjoyable and easy to get around. The weather, for the 2 days we were there, was wonderful and we packed in as much as we could. I hope one day we can return as there is still so much to see and do in beautiful SF. We would highly recommend Joyce’s apartment and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you Joyce!

I am an interior stylist in SF, specializing in high-impact and low-cost chic decorating. I try to bring an easy-glam, eclectic aesthetic into my place. Over the years, my apartment has been my design lab, from French Country, Hollywood Regency, Mid-century streamline, to Asian inspired. I believe that good design is never done. Like people, a home space goes through changes; it grows, evolves, and inspires. Besides interior decorating, I am a shameless foodie, passion about art, fashion, and travel. I love to explore nature and experience different cultures. I received a Trans-Global MBA from St. Mary's College of California. I also work as the honorary co-chair of San Francisco Ronald McDonald House annual fundraising gala, my way of giving back to the community that I love.
