About this listing
This classic SF 2 bedroom flat has expansive views from every room and the large windows bathe every space in light.
The rooms are very spacious, with social spaces on the South facing side of the house and the bedrooms on the quiet North side.
This beautiful two bedroom flat is the perfect place to use as homebase for your San Francisco getaway. Mid-century and Danish modern furniture complements this 1940 flat. The living room features a fireplace, sectional sofa (which doubles as a sofa bed), 46 inch HDTV flatscreen cable TV & BluRay player, sitting area, and enormous view window looking out on the Sutro tower atop Twin Peaks. The dining room is the perfect place to sit down and recount the day's adventures over a meal prepared in the newly remodeled gourmet kitchen, cooked on the backyard grill, or delivered from any of the fine restaurants nearby. The ample bedrooms are each furnished with 32 inch flat screen HDTV televisions, as well as iPod docking clock radios. The house also features a rotating selection of local art & San Francisco themed displays.
The Home: Your home away from home in one of the most beautiful cities in the world includes a formal living room and formal dining room with seating for 6, newly-remodeled kitchen, two big light-filled bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen), and 1 bathroom with a tub and separate shower stall. The approx. 1375 sq. ft. architectural gem is in a two unit 1940’s style building, and features hardwood flooring, original art deco design details, and vintage furnishings. The bedrooms are located in the rear of the flat, overlooking the garden with a view of one of San Francisco’s oddball treasures, the Columbarium. The living room sofa also converts to a queen-size sleeper, if you are in need of extra space. There are public tennis courts and a swimming pool at the park across the street.
Golden Gate Park: The flat has a spectacular location: a 3 block walk leads to Golden Gate Park, including such sights as: the Conservatory of Flowers, Academy of Sciences, M.H. de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, and the Arboretum (Botanical Garden); as well as such activities as: a children-only playground, archery, biking and skating, golf, horseback riding, lawn bowling, tennis, fly-fishing, and plenty of spots for a wonderful picnic. The park is larger than New York's Central Park, and is covered with more than one million trees and contains its own herd of bison.
Transportation: No car is needed with this centrally located flat (it has a WalkScore of 94!). If you tire of walking, taxicabs are plentiful, and San Francisco’s public transportation system is easy and intuitive. Having a bus stop one block away from the flat makes travel to Ocean Beach, shopping downtown at boutiques or the mall, the Embarcadero, Fisherman's Wharf, etc. a snap. If you're coming for business or a convention, Express Bus service to Downtown operates morning & evening from one block away!
Finally, if you do bring a car there is abundant street parking, including some sections where you may leave a car parked for a full week without a permit. If you will be staying for an extended period, a temporary permit can be obtained – just ask!

The apartment is nicer than photos suggest. Great furnishings, snacks and wine a nice touch, comfy beds. Beautiful well equipped kitchen, hosted small gathering had everything we needed. Chris is very respectful of privacy but very available to answer questions. I would definitely recommend this spot for a couple, family or group.
We spent a marvelous time at this very nice flat !
It was very clean, very comfortable and well situated.
We really recommend this place.
Chris was a perfect host - everything with the flat was better than I could have hoped for. It's very cute, clean, well decorated and spacious. Chris gave us all of the information we needed beforehand, which made the check-in/check-out very easy. He even left us some much appreciated welcome snacks :) The neighborhood was great - I highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. There's plenty of street parking during the day and I lots of shops close by. Everyone in our group had a great stay. Thank you, Chris!
This apartment is lovely and in a great location! Chris was a great host and had snacks and drinks ready for us when we got there.
The location is wonderful, we easily walked one block to Geary that has plenty of restaurants and shopping. Also an easy walk to Golden Gate park. Parking was available across the street and we never had a problem finding a nearby spot.
The apartment is charming and spacious, the bedrooms were clean and had plenty of space. We also used the pullout couch in the living room and there were plenty of clean linens/towels in the closet. The kitchen was clean and modern, had all the amenities to cook and serve a full meal.
My kids loved the flat screen tv and wifi :)
We also had access to the laundry room, which was great as we had been traveling for several days by the time we got to SF.
I would definitely recommend Chris and his apartment as a great place to stay in San Francisco!

About the Host, Chris
I purchased a property when living in Richmond in 2006. I had just left an apartment and Richmond looked like a long term locale for me so I took the plunge and bought.
Lo and behold, everything started changing and I wound up leaving Richmond, spending a year traveling before moving back to San Francisco where I'd been living until 2002.
For a few years I had long term tenants, but I wanted to share the house and the location with vacationers, as well as use it myself a few weeks each year so it has been re purposed as a turn-key spot to spend your Richmond vacation.
Then, when back in San Francisco I started doing AirBNB with my guest apartment when I didn't have friends in town.
