Like you stepped into a boutique hotel, hidden away in one of San Francisco's lesser-known neighborhoods. Comfort and convenience in a warm, relaxing environment.
You will absolutely love this cozy, comfortable space tucked away in a unique corner of a unique city! Fully renovated in 2006 with bamboo flooring, Grohe faucets, subway tile, cherry cabinetry, flexible-control lighting, and Caesar stone counter tops. The contemporary furnishings exude warmth and style and the large windows let the light pour in. While this apartment is a mere 400 square feet, it has everything you need (internet, music dock, well-equipped kitchen, off-street parking) and nothing you don't (landline phone, TV - it's San Francisco, for Pete's sake. Get out there!).
The location is perfect for foodies, outdoor enthusiasts and sporting-types. Within a few block radius you will find restaurants featuring Chinese, Turkish, Indonesian, Burmese, Vietnamese, Japanese, Russian, French, Italian, Thai, Korean, German and American menus. Just to the north you will find the greenery, trails and history of the Presidio. To the south, the museums, gardens and ponds of Golden Gate Park beckon. A short drive takes you over the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marin Headlands, Sausalito and Muir Woods. Golf courses, tennis courts, and bike rentals are all just a short walk away.
Located in a well-maintained 6 unit building, you will find your stay here to be as quiet and restful or as ambitious and entertaining as you like. As comfortable as a boutique hotel, but much more affordable, this is a perfect spot from which to launch your San Francisco adventure. Welcome!
Guests have access to my entire (albeit, small) apartment and the garage, if parking is needed.
Interaction with Guests
Typically, I exchange several emails with guests prior to their arrival to ensure all the details are worked out. After their first night, I call or text to make sure they have everything they need and make sure they know I'm available if needed.
The Richmond is off the beaten path for most tourists, but has so much to offer in the way of restaurants and easy access to parks and the Golden Gate Bridge. It's the perfect blend of residential and commercial and quiet enough to ensure you have a peaceful stay.
One block away along California Street there are bus stops for several public transit lines, including an express bus to downtown.
Our building is occupied by owners like me who value a safe, quiet place to call home. My hope is that you treat it like your home as well by keeping doors closed and locked and keeping interior noise to a reasonable level.
Several residents of this building, myself included, are very sensitive to smoke so please no smoking in or near the building. I would also kindly ask that you refrain from burning candles or incense.
San Francisco is embarking on a zero-waste program, meaning all trash must be sorted into one of three bins: (BLUE) recycle (GREEN) compost (BLACK) landfill. Please help us avoid possible fines by following the posted guidelines.
On-site washer and dryer are for owner's use only. If you require laundry facilities, there are several coin-operated laundromats and dry cleaners within a one block distance.
My in-laws stayed at Scott's place for the 2nd time over this past holiday season. Once again, Scott proved to be a great host. He provided us with a beautiful apartment with great amenities and was extremely flexible on check-in and check-out times, catering to my in-laws' travel schedule. I look forward to booking Scott's place again soon.
Scott's apartment was perfect , tidy , modern , comfortable and easy to get to. Scott made us feel very welcome by giving us clear directions to the apartment. Upon arrival their was lovely lighting and a bottle of wine with a card wishing us well on our stay in his apartment and to feel free to contact him if we had any queries. Scott was very polite, easy to contact and helpful. The neighbourhood in the Richmond district is fantastic location , although we had a car most fundamental services are walking distance. block away from restaurants ( lots of variety) and a 4 minute walk to the supermarket.Laundromat down the road .We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Scott's apartment to anyone who is wanting to see San Francisco .
El barrio estaba muy bien, se sentía seguro, limpio y con gran oferta gastronómica cerca y fácil acceso a la estación de bus. El apartamento es realmente como se muestra en las fotografías, con muchos detalles, muy limpio, realmente una excelente alternativa. Scott nos dejo una nota y una botella de vino de Sonoma que estaba buenísimo, además de algunas cosas para preparar desayuno.
Scott was a great host. He had many nice touches before our stay: he gave us advices, helped us prepare our coming, filled the fridge...!
The apartment was perfect for our 4 days trip in San Francisco. Very close to the Presidio park and Golden Gate park, great for a walk or jogging! Also very easy to go to the main points of the city, even with public transport.
I can only say extremely positive things about staying in Scott's apartment- it was a delightful carefree experience staying there and Scott is so sweet as he leaves basic breakfast items for guests to use. The decor, amenities and vibes are much nicer than a standard hotel room at a very reasonable price. We stayed for 5 nights and we loved the richmond neighborhood where he lives, lots of great restaurants walking distance and downtown or getting out of town is a very short drive away. We had access to the garage for our car so our day trips went off without a glitch. Bottom line his place is beautiful, classy and homey and I would recommend staying there over a hotel any day to any friend staying in the area. 5 stars!
Scott was the perfect host for my in-laws visiting from the east coast. He provided them with a warm welcome (providing some wine & tea) and was flexible with their check-in and check-out times. His home is clean and modern and the location is perfect for any visitor to the city.
I look forward to reserving Scott's home again in the near future for friends or relatives.
My grandparents came to visit for a week and they loved Scott's apartment. It was beautiful, cozy, and well maintained. It has its own parking spot out back, which was really convenient for them since they drove here. The bed was extremely comfortable to sleep in, and overall they agreed it was a perfect stay. Thanks Scott!
I'm in love with San Francisco! The city welcomed me 18 years ago and I vowed never to leave. My favorite way to spend the day: throw down a blanket in Dolores Park with some friends and a bottle or two of wine. Currently, I'm working as a flight attendant and am trying to break into real estate sales. Free time is spent at the gym, connecting with friends or cocooning in my comfortable home.
As a host, I realize that most guests will already arrive with an agenda of things they want to do and see. I typically have a "hands-off" approach, but am readily available before and during your stay if you want help planning activities.
