About this listing

The space

San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Registration Number: STR150.

Just steps from 16th Street and Valencia, your stay in SF's Mission District means convenient access to some of the best chef-owned specialty restaurants in SF.
We're in the center of everything this vibrant neighborhood has to offer - dozens of great eateries, boutiques, galleries, specialty shops, abundant entertainment, famous murals, Dolores Park, a variety of clubs, historic sites (Mission Dolores, the original Levi jeans factory, etc).

Public transportation options to get around SF and the entire Bay Area are efficient from here; BART (subway) is 1 block away and provides easy access to civic center, downtown, Union Square, SF airport, Berkeley, Oakland, and the Bay Area. A 20-minute walk will bring you to Castro, Civic Center, SOMA, Lower Haight, Hayes Valley, and many more neighborhoods - all with great sights and much to see along the way.

San Francisco is a wonderful city and we love to share what we know; we have annual passes to museums (The deYoung and California Legion of Honor - though no promises since ticket availability depends on our schedules to obtain them).

We are a married couple with a sweet, well-behaved dog (never barks), able to host in Spanish, and love having guests. Come stay with us. Amenities we offer:

Quiet home is a reprieve from the urban hustle.
1 block to BART (subway) and several MUNI lines (buses)

The heavenly bed! I slept like a log most nights. This is important as i had jetlag to deal with. Location is great..walking distance to many great eateries. BART and MUNI stations are stone-throw away. Mark is good host and most approachable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Mark amd Raphael's place. Strongly recommend it.

Mark and Rafael were welcoming. Mark took the time to give me advice on San Francisco. The apartment is close to transport, which is convenient for visiting San Francisco.

I had a wonderful experience staying at Rafael and Mark's lovely place! Rafael and Mark were very friendly and thoughtful hosts. They provided helpful information beforehand in preparation for my trip, and was very accommodating for my late arrival. The room was clean, cozy, and beautifully decorated. I very much felt at home during my stay.

I had the best time staying with Rafael and Mark. They gave me great advice about places to visit in the city, were beyond nice to talk to, and answered all of my questions. They really made me feel at home and comfortable (Mark even made me some fresh grapefruit juice! I LOVED it!). I appreciated the art on the walls, the deck with a garden area, and an amazing kitchen. If you like food, there are TONS of restaurants very close! I ate my way through the neighborhood. (Mark recommended walking down a street called Valencia; just a block away). We're talking anything you would want within walking distance: empanadas, chai, gourmet coffee, pizza, tacos, designer pastries, breakfast foods, ice cream sandwiches, Vietnamese noodle bowls, cocktails, and so on. Also, there are opportunities to see amazing street murals, beautiful stores, and every extreme imaginable. It is exciting and lovely. It was a peaceful home base for a visit filled with adventure.
