Great 1-bedroom in a fabulous location! Lots of charm in this darling 1890 Victorian. Spacious and comfortable providing one large bedroom, adjoining bathroom, living room and kitchen. Perfect for a couple or small family with one child.

The Space

This renovated one-bedroom in a classic Victorian is roomy and comfortable, with a remodeled bath and updated fully equipped kitchen. You will find an immaculately clean apartment with high ceilings, period moldings, oak floors, decorative old fireplace in living room. Bedroom has a super comfy queen bed, futon in the living room could accommodate a third person. Packnplay in the closet for infant or toddler. Great light, nicely decorated. Second floor on a hill means nice open views. Two flights of stairs walk up to the unit is ok for most but not recommended for those with mobility issues.
Everything is provided, linens and towels etc, you will feel like a guest at a friend's house while your friend is away!
Flat screen TV with no cable feed, but has blu ray/dvd player and hdmi cable to stream from your laptop.
No smokers, please. There is no way to just step outside to smoke.
This unit is ideal for one person or a couple. A child of the adults can be ok, but I cannot accept 3 adults.
Even though the house has two garages, they are assigned to other units. There is no assigned parking with this unit.

Guest Access

The whole apartment and it's contents are available for our guest's use.

Interaction with Guests

Unfortunately I often leave town to make my apartment available to guests, so I rarely meet my guests. However, I communicate extensively by email, and my guests are welcome to reach me by phone or text.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is simply beautiful, with restored late 1800/early 1900's Victorians all around. Buena Vista Park is just up the hill surrounded by amazing archictectural gems and breathtaking views of the city and the bay. Duboce Park a block away is also surrounded by such quaint beautiful houses that are on the tour bus route (those buses avoid our block because of our short hill, keeping that section of our street a quiet secret!) Yet with Haight St and Divisadero just a block away, public transportation, grocery stores, cafes and restaurants abound within a short walk. Walk to Haight-Ashbury, Castro, Alamo Square, Hayes Valley, Golden Gate Park and the Mission. We also can also walk to specialty gourmet grocery stores (in addition of our Falleti's and Bi-Rite nearby, a new Whole Foods just opened .5 miles away). Also shops and restaurants, plus beautiful parks and well known landmarks are an easy walk from our house. We're privileged to live in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the city.

Getting around

One to two blocks to muni buses, N-Judah MUNI (metro) line, short walk to Haight Ashbury, Alamo Square (and Painted Ladies), the Castro, Divisadero, Duboce Triangle and Lower Haight restaurants and cafes. Short bus or easy 20min walk to Golden Gate Park, the ocean, or in another direction the Mission. Quick MUNI (metro train) to Downtown, Embarcadero, Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown…

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • It was a pleasure staying here. A perfect location at the heart of SF and quite easy to access all parts of the city. Very comfortable and everything was as described. We will look to stay here again.

  • The listing was just what we expected and it was in a great neighbourhood. The host was very friendly. She left a list with lots of helpful information about the neighbourhood - restaurants, grocery stores, etc.The accommodation was bright, cheerful and very comfortable.

    June 2014
  • It's a very nice and clean place that is extremely convenient to use when having out of town guests.

    May 2014
  • This was the perfect place for us. It is in a great location and you can walk to most things that you want to do. The apartment was charming and well maintained. We would stay here the next time we are in town.

  • My wife and I stayed here last week. It was a great apartment. Very cozy, quiet, clean and safe. It is located in a very nice neighborhood and Duboce park is right there (think the opening scene in Full House).

    The apartment is very close to metro stops and is an easy walk to the Castro district. We had no complaints. If you are older/have bad knees, please be aware the steps leading up to the apartment are rather steep.

  • Very cute place, we enjoyed our stay. Only issue (slight) the wifi was intermittent.

    February 2014
  • Not only was Emilie's listing exactly as described, it was even better than I imagined. Cozy, clean and comfortable only begin to describe her place and it had the added bonus of being extremely quiet and serene in a city where the noise level can be rather high at times. Add to that the convenience of being close to several Muni transit lines, an easy trip from SFO and an abundance of restaurants and shops. I would happily stay at Emilie's listing again!

    February 2014
  • Absolutely lovely location on a beautiful, very San Francisco-esque street. It's a quiet street, which was great, but is also a quick walk to major avenues and easy public transit. Would highly recommend it! Emilie is a very efficient host, and everything was where she said it would be. Apartment was very clean. We were 2 adults, and one of us took the bedroom while the other took the futon which got rave reviews! Only caveat is that the bathroom is off of the bedroom, so there was no way for the other person to access it without going through my room. I would absolutely stay here again.

  • Emilie's home could not have been more perfect. From the location to the cosy comfort of the apartment it had everything one needed. I stayed here for two weeks and didn't want to leave! Emilie was extremely helpful and quick in responding to my questions and extremely patient. Thank you for everything!

    January 2014
  • Emilie is a fantastic host. She was so thoughtful and made great efforts to secure me a parking space in front of the garage, this was so sweet. Emilie was really quick to answer my questions, and her cell phone was alway available when I needed helps by calling her. We had a happy stay at Emilie's house for 6 days.
