The Space

NOTE: I usually respond to daytime inquires immediately, certainly within the hour.

This 450 sq. foot studio apartment is above a quirky art space in the Mission called the S.F. Institute of Possibility. The apartment is separate from the art space and has its own entrance. You can see the listing for that space here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1056688

This studio apartment is just for travelers. It’s outfitted with a queen-sized bed and a futon that can convert into a second bed for parties of four. With nine windows, this place has tons of light (but also velvet drapes that can block it out if you need). There is a gas heater for the colder months, a Mac computer with wifi, a clawfoot bathtub, a private water closet with toilet and sink, and a kitchenette with full sized fridge and stove top. The kitchen is complete with all the dishes and implements you might need to make a quick meal or prepare your morning coffee. A beautiful wheatpaste mural by Brooklyn-based artist Swoon adorns the large wall above the stairs.

The space is a block from Valencia Street and hundreds of shops and restaurants, cafes and culture. It’s 3 blocks from the 24th street BART station. There is usually something fun and interesting happening downstairs: drawing class, yoga, Dungeons and Dragons, cooking classes, and on weekends there are often dinners or art shows- never parties or loud music.

I’m always around and live a few blocks away, so check in is easy. There is a digital keypad for entry into the building, you never need keys.

There is a beautiful garden in the backyard. But you must wrap up activities in the backyard at 9pm. There are tons of kids in the neighborhood and we must be mindful of the neighbors.

There are always fun, friendly people around and always something going on.

Kids love the apartment and the downstairs space. Very kid friendly.

Ritual Coffee included for your stay and a bag to take home (we’re the owners)!

Getting Around

BART and Muni are both within 2 blocks. Lyft and Uber provide great alternatives to public transit.

House Rules

No smoking! Opening the window and smoking near the window is lame, don't do that. Go outside and smoke.

No not telling! If something breaks or is weird you have to tell me so I can fix it!

Please turn thermostat all the way down when you leave for more than 6 hours.

Please do not park in the lot next door. It has nothing to do with our building, they tow!
