This spacious one-bedroom is on the top floor of a building on a hill, with sweeping views of Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Mt. Tam and the Pacific Ocean. There is truly no better way to experience San Francisco's natural beauty than to wake up with it all around you.
Besides the views, amenities include an extra cozy queen-size bed with feather topper, rain shower, working fireplace, well-equipped kitchen, laundry, and nice, midcentury modern furnishings.
This is a luxury property priced well below market rates because staying here includes looking after two adorable felines, Walter and Mimi. We're interested in accommodating friendly guests who will enjoy our home and kitties as much as we do.
The neighborhood is called Parnassus Heights and it's just a few blocks to peaceful Cole Valley and the vibrant bars and restaurants of Irving Street in the Sunset. The apartment is just a block from the world class university and hospital at UCSF, and is a great place for visiting medical professionals to stay.
You're just 2 blocks from Golden Gate Park, where you can enjoy a beautiful walk or a picnic and visit attractions like the DeYoung Museum, The California Academy of Sciences and the SF Botanical Gardens.
Public transportation is easy on the N train, just a block away, which takes you to all the attractions downtown or out to Ocean Beach. One block in the opposite direction you'll find several major bus lines to take you to neighborhoods including the Marina and the Mission. The UCSF shuttle system is also available free of charge for transportation between medical campuses.
Other Things to Note
Recently we've gotten a number of anonymous inquiries from potential guests. Please do fill out your profile completely and tell us a little something about yourselves, why you'd like to stay in our home, and your willingness to hang out with our kitties. We always make sure our guests are super comfy, and we want to feel certain that you're going to take good care of our home as well!
We will have the apartment professionally cleaned before your arrival and after your departure, so we charge a small cleaning fee to defray the costs.
Renting our place means basic kitty care: feeding, watering and litter scooping—that's why we keep the price so low. We will give you details about this (it's very simple) prior to finalizing your booking.
Here are the house rules:
1) Don't let the cats outside.
2) Care for our cats and our belongings as if they were your own.
3) Be mindful of our neighbors downstairs—please take off shoes with hard soles to minimize their overhead noise, and keep loud talking and music inside reasonable hours (tone it down by 10 pm).
Most of all, ENJOY!
Megan and Matt were wonderful hosts. Staying at their place beat out any hotel we've ever stayed at. They left us detailed directions regarding the neighborhood, things to do in SF, and what their favorite restaurants were.
Their home was beautiful, clean, and we loved taking care of their cats.
Overall - it was a terrific experience.
Staying at Megan and Matt's place was one of the highlights of our trip! The place was well presented and clean, and the neighbourhood had everything so conveniently close. Plus, Walter and Mimi were the perfect entertaining hosts. Would definitely come back if we were around SF again!
I can not say enough about the care and consideration that Megan and Matt gave to us before, during and after our stay at their wonderful home. Their directions were accurate and helpful and the information that they offered was detailed and just what we needed to know in terms of good restaurants and points of interest in the area.
We loved their home. It had wonderful style and character. We were there over Christmas and so did some meal preparation - everything was in order to make a great meal. Great knives, pots and pans and stove. It was perfect. Plus Megan decorated for the holidays! That, plus the adorable Walter & MiMi, made for a great stay. It was immaculately clean and all in all a magical place.
We had an incredible experience staying at Megan & Matt's and adopting their two cats, Walter & Mimi, for the weekend. The only thing better than their adorable home was the neighborhood it is located in, Inner Sunset. You are within walking distance from many excellent places to eat and an additional bonus is the close proximity to the museums of Golden Gate Park. Definitely a gem within the heart of San Francisco!
We've probably stayed in over 50 different airbnb locations, and this might be my favorite of all. Amazing views in a super well designed apartment. The cats are great, too! I actually miss them. We had trouble getting motivated to leave the apartment because we were so cozy there. Thanks for everything!
Megan was very helpful and flexible.
The information was clear. That was especially helpful because of the care for Walter and Mimi the cats (not much to do, but as we ourselves do not own cats but a dog, it was good to know how much food etc. was needed).
The apartment was amazing and quiet with beautiful ocean and Golden Gate views.
We thought the area around the apartment was even more interesting than SF centre. In walking distance are excellent and interesting restaurants, and Golden Gate park with the DeYoung museum is just a few blocks away.
Walter and Mimi the cat are very friendly, they made us feel a little sad to leave.
Overall, would hope to be able to return whenever our travels will lead us to San Francisco in the future!
Megan and Matt's place was great! The pics on the site were true to what was offered. The cats, Mimi and Walter were a delight to take care of. They were super friendly and entertaining. The views from the apartment were incredible. You could see the Golden Gate Bridge! The neighborhood was full of restaurants and bars that were in walking distance of the apartment. This is a great place to stay!
