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)
On a tree-lined side street, 1/2 block to vibrant Valencia Corridor.
Quiet patio and balcony - great for enjoying meals, reading, or just relaxing in privacy

Rafael and Mark's place is a perfect fit for anyone looking for an affordable stay in the heart of the Mission. As hosts, they are wonderfully accommodating and communicative. The room itself is spacious and comfortable. Would most definitely stay again!

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.

I had a great time with Mark and Rafael. Comfortable home close to restaurants and nightlife in the Mission, and BART and Muni are just 2 short blocks away. But the best of the experience were the hosts themselves -- couldn't ask for nicer, more helpful guys to stay with.

Rafael and Mark are wonderful hosts. Their home is clean and beautifully decorated. They were extremely helpful in offering tourism tips and were available to answer any questions. When I arrived they had fresh flowers in the room, and they gave a warm welcome. Much better than staying in a hotel! Their home is located walking distance from a lot of great restaurants and is very convivnent for accessing public transit. I would highly recommend staying here.
