The Space

Clean (now maid-serviced), airy, sunny, corner, top-floor, well-appointed studio apartment in the heart of Hayes Valley (and San Francisco itself)! Near the Hayes Street commercial district (restaurants, boutiques, Patricia's Green, the Biergarten, food truck lot, Smitten, etc.), yet far enough away to minimize noise. Close to all public transit (Muni, BART, buses, etc.), City Hall, Opera House, SF Jazz, Alamo Square. Walking distance (+/-15 minutes) from the Mission, Castro, Church & Market, Lower Haight, Divisadero corridor, NoPa, etc.

Full memoryfoam mattress easily flips up and away, pivoting into the walk-in closet as a Murphy Bed. This leaves a large, open area for easy, uncluttered daytime living. Apartment also features a roomy walk-in closet, porcelain bathtub ideal for soaking and stretching, and efficient, comfortable, and charming kitchen. Western exposure and seven generous windows flood the apartment with light, especially in the afternoon.

Looking for friendly, quiet, respectful folks who want to enjoy this absolutely adorable and comfy space when I'm down at my other place in Los Angeles. Please let me know a little something about yourself and what brings you to San Francisco. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about my apartment or the Bay Area!

Note: if you need accommodations for more than two guests, my neighbor also has his unit available on Airbnb. We're happy to do a double booking for larger parties. Check his listing out here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1864739.

  • Great location with bags of character, very comfortable apartment with lots of natural light and everything you need for a few days stay in San Francisco.

  • The apartment was lovely and just as pictured. I loved the character of the building. It was clean and tidy with lots of natural light and located in a wonderfully interesting area with lots of dining and shopping options. This is a great place to stay in San Francisco. Jacob was also quick to respond to my booking request.

  • We had a great time in SF and this studio apt. is perfectly located; we could walk everywhere in the city, which we did! But our favorite neighborhood was Hayes Valley, where this apt. is located - it was our oasis after a day of busy sight-seeing. The apt. is surrounded by charming shops and restaurants, and the apt. itself is sunny and spacious. I'd highly recommend it. We didn't meet Jacob, but he was very responsive to my phone call. Great experience!

  • This is a really great apartment in an awesome location. Jacob was very responsive, and everything (check in, check out, etc.) was seamless. The apartment itself was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and it was a great staging point for the rest of our time in SF. The only thing I would have changed is the light bulbs -- the lights in the kitchen were very, very dim but we didn't do much cooking so it wasn't too much of a problem. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Great location, loved the Hayes Valley area. Lots of good bars, places to eat and quirky shops. Apt was small but perfect for us, we were out most days anyway. Fantastic coffee place right next door selling the most amazing bagels.

  • Wonderful studio apartment in great location. Jacob was very accessible although we never met him. We loved the light, clean feel of the place. Consider bringing earplugs if you're sensitive to noise. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Originally from Nebraska, I moved to San Francisco from the East Coast last year. My time in San Francisco has confirmed that I want to spend the remainder of my life centered on the West Coast, though perhaps not in San Francisco itself. I'm using Airbnb since a sizable chunk of my time is also spent Los Angeles, where I'm currently recovering from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident last spring. Please feel free to message me with a booking inquiry. I find I work best with guests who are quiet, respectful, tidy, and self-sufficient (I'm plenty hospitable, but a concierge I am not). It pleases me to be able share this awesome, adorable space with other cool, friendly people when I'm away. I love San Francisco and am happy to tell you all kinds of awesome things to do here during your visit! (For those who book, please do me a favor and familiarize yourself with the House Manual here on Airbnb so as to establish mutual expectations before your stay.)
