Stylish Mission Victorian near BART

Apartment - Private room · South Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94110, United States

Enjoy a super comfortable bedroom in a beautifully renovated 1908 Victorian in the heart of SF's trendy Mission District. With access to the best restaurants, easy transportation and the most sun in in the city, discover & enjoy all SF has to offer!

The Space

Come stay with us and enjoy our very comfortable guest bedroom in our renovated Victorian in San Francisco's fun Mission District near the BART train station.

Your big bedroom faces west through new bay windows and has great light and a comfortable queen-size bed for a restful slumber or short nap. There is ample space to unpack with a closet and a dresser to make your stay more enjoyable.

The apartment is a 3 bedroom, however the 3rd bedroom is primarily used as second shared lounge and gives everyone extra space to enjoy some spare time. The apartment has windows facing east, south, and west with a view of Bernal Heights Mountain - a great 15 min walk to the top for pictures. Not ready to walk, sit on the back balcony and enjoy the view, the sun or the evening air.

We are just 2 blocks off Mission so it is easy to explore this iconic street which runs into Noe Valley and encapsulates the hearth of San Francisco. Hop on public transportation by walking to 24 and Mission for SF Muni everywhere or BART (train station) for simple airport and downtown travel. Great food abounds so check out the popular restaurants and cafes of the Mission and Valencia Street corridor. Driving to Silicon Valley or over the Golden Gate Bridge, we are 4 minutes from the 101 & 280 on-ramps.

Our sunny Mission apartment is in a newly renovated Victorian building. With good period detail, circa 1908, we have modern furnishings in a large apartment that is very clean and comfortable. A 30 foot hall separates the bedrooms and computer lounge from the living room and kitchen for maximum privacy and space.

We are a quiet, married gay professional couple of more than a decade, who enjoy our beautiful home with our two small dogs that are 10-year-old Dachshunds. Please note: Being comfortable with friendly dogs is necessary.

So stay with us and enjoy a sunrise over Bernal Heights before heading out to explore the trendy Mission District, for great food, fun finds and famous murals that makes this historical district so appealing. Since we are around the corner from 24th and Mission, public transportation is super convenient to take BART from the airport or get downtown and experience San Francisco’s most famous landmarks.

As world travelers, we look forward to welcoming you into our home, swap stories and help you to get the most out of your visit to beautiful San Francisco!

All the best,
David & Kevin

  • My 6 night stay with David & Kevin was positive in every way. Upon arrival I was given a full tour of their beautiful home, introduced to their friendly and entertaining dogs, Josh and Dax, and completely welcomed into their space. They and two of their friends who I was lucky enough to meet were extremely helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat around the neighborhood and city. Their home was immaculate and Davids art collection was so impressive. They made me feel welcome and at home throughout my very first week of training with Airbnb, and added such a special touch to my experience by expressing their genuine excitement for me and my new role with the company. I would recommend these Super Hosts to everyone traveling in San Francisco and look forward to returning to their home in the future!

    Thank you both so much!

    Thanks so much for picking us to host this most special week in your life. All the best and come back soon! David & Kevin

  • Beautiful home in a great location. The place has a real sense of style and is very clean and comfortable.

    David and Kevin are lovely: friendly, welcoming, and very helpful. And their dogs are pretty cute ;)

    This place exemplifies all the things I love about airbnb, and also adds the cleanliness and style I would expect from a good hotel. Highly recommended!

    Jesse, it was great to meet and host you. Thanks for the kind review and we wish you the best in your adventures. Let us know what happens! All the best, David & Kevin

  • I stayed recently at David and Kevin's place, it was a business trip and decided to have a little change from my boring hotel stay in downtown SF for something more flavorful in the colorful Mission district. The apartment is ultra neat, very comfortable room. The hosts are very nice, quiet and very friendly. They offered me fruits and tea in the morning and Kevin even gave me a ride to a part of the city I had to go to the day I checked out of the place. They have two dogs, which are very lovable and sweet, though bark a lot every time I came into the apartment. The neighborhood is filled with Mexican restaurants in the near vicinity and a lot of color murals which are very interesting to look at, and if you walk few more blocks, there is the hipster area, which has a lot more diversity in terms of food, cafes and trendy places. It is also about two or so blocks from a train which in few minutes will take you downtown. They are both great people to get to know.

    Great to meet you. Yup the dogs like to make a bit of fuss when guests come in during the day. They are always happy to greet the guests, part of their charm. Come back again!

  • David and Kevin are jovial, welcoming hosts. David has a level of cleanliness that's unimaginable to me. It's very convenient to go to the BART and the two have good food recommendations in the area. And David generously offered to pick me up from work after arrival, which made navigating the first day much easier. Overall, I had a lovely stay.

    Hi Shirley,
    So great to meet you. Just a note, we keep it so clean so every guest will feel like they just arrived at the Four Seasons. We just want to make sure everyone feels special and 5 star! But we also encourage everyone to keep the room as they are most comfortable!
    Come back soon!

  • My second stay in Kevin and David's beautiful apartment, and I hope to be back again in the future - many thanks!

    Chris, what a treat to get to visit again! Any Amazon friend of yours is a friend of ours. See you again!

  • David and Kevin were great hosts...I mean I came back a second time didn't I? A great place to stay in San Francisco if working in town, it is near the BART in quiet and relaxed environment where one can be as engaged as one wants as your hosts are very respectful of your space and needs. Great art, great dogs and great location. What isn't to love!

    Great to see you again! Thanks so much for the dog treats and the delicious maple syrup; it isn't neccesaary but we do love it!

  • David and Kevin are superb hosts, great people, and very pleasant company. Their house is very clean (which was a nice change from some of my other air bnb experiences). My bed in the guest room was supremely comfortable and the room itself was well appointed with plenty of space for all of my things. They have also an additional room next to the bedroom which I used as a makeshift office and morning yoga room that really topped off the quality of my stay in their apartment. Cheers and appreciation to these two men for their wonderful hospitality and the comfortable environment they create for their guests!

    Thanks Jonathan, it was great to meet you too! We really loved your beautiful cooper wares, I will tell all my friends to check out Sertodo Copper! All the best, David & Kevin

  • It was my first experience with Airbnb and I have to say that it was a great one!
    I enjoyed staying in the very nice, clean, tidy and welcoming place of David and Kevin.The location of their place is ideal: close to public transport (BART) and in the center of Mission area.
    I also enjoyed discussing with David and getting to know him better, I have felt directly at ease with him :)
    Definitely a highly recommended place to stay.
    Thanks again!

    Hi Nathalie, it was fun to meet you. I hope your week at (website hidden) HQ was a good one. See you again and all the best! David & Kevin

  • As a first time Airbnb user David and Kevin definitely set the bar very high!

    From before I even arrived David was extremely helpful providing information and recommendations for things to do in San Fran as well as different transport options from the airport, BART times, etc.

    The house is extremely nice and convenient and the bed unbelievably comfortable! It really was home away from home. David and Kevin are very fun and genuine people and I wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again!!
