The Space

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 restaurants, 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a lovely stay in San Francisco. The guy's apartment is spacious and very comfortable. Transportation by BART from the SF Airport was close and easy. Both Mark and Rafa are extremely friendly and welcoming hosts and I loved spending time with them. I truly recommend staying here, the best choice for Castro/Mission area.

  • Mark and Rafael were extremely welcoming and helpful in making me feel at home. The room was very comfortable indeed. I'd highly recommend staying with Mark and Rafael.

  • Mark and Rafael are the sweetest host! Truly wonderful people. Very thoughtful- always asked if I want coffee or juices. If I need breakfast or anything? And the bed- do I like to sleep on firm bed or soft bed? Coz that can be arranged! Any kinds of information that you need, Mark is always willing to help! He even helped me with lifting my suitcase up the stairs- which I appreciated so much! Over all, the apartment is very clean and tidy. Beautiful space with the perfect location so near to the Bart (2 mins walk). And their dog Leonardo, is so well behave- doesn't bark at all. I highly recommend you to stay with Mark and Rafael!

  • If you are planning a visit to San Francisco, and you are lucky enough to find an opening in Mark & Rafael’s busy calendar, you will love staying in their home. I spent a month with M&R while looking for a rental, and during my stay I appreciated their friendly and welcoming approach. The room is a perfect size, with a very comfy bed, a desk and plenty of space to relax and read. The kitchen is well very well equipped and available for use any time (they made me many wonderful dinners!). The apartment is well located to go anywhere in the city, with the BART station just around the corner for easy travel downtown, to the airport, or throughout the Bay Area. And don’t forget Leo … the best and most well-behaved dog ever : ) I agree with the other reviews … this is a GREAT place to stay! Thanks so much M&R...hope to see you soon...

  • My stay at Rafael and Mark's house was delightful and exactly what I'd hoped for. They are great hosts who were most accommodating: from coordinating check-in and making me feel welcome, to insuring a clean and safe room, to engaging conversation and their sharing highlights of the Mission neighborhood - and all it's restaurant glory.
    While I had work in the financial distort and took BART a few stops, I also attended the symphony and the fine arts of SF are an entertaining 20 minute walk away.
    I would suggest this room, with good work space, accessible wifi and a comfortable bed, to any of my friends. And I will likely try to stay here again when visiting San Francisco.

  • Rafael and Mark's place is super brilliant. I stayed just one night, so I wanna go back to SF and spend more time in there. That was really really comfortable room. I highly recommend that if you need accommodation in Mission district or SF. They are very gentle and kind. I'm not good at English, but they chose easy word and spoke slowly for me. My first Airbnb was amazing!!!

  • Mark and Rafael are wonderful people! This is the first time I've ever booked an AirBnB room with the hosts there and these guys made the experience so great! They were warm, friendly and absolutely respectful of my presence there by even trying to limit their noise in the morning as they went about starting their day. I was given wonderful suggestions and insight on the city and shared great conversations with them in genuine candor. The room is true to the pics and really made you feel at home by the way it is styled and immaculately kept. I highly recommend staying here to anyone at all and will definitely look for their place the next time I'm in San Francisco!

  • Just a fantastic spot. The location really can't be beat--it's dead-center in the Mission, seconds to the Bart station and steps from some of the city's best restaurants and bars. The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating, and the apartment was spacious, and EXTREMELY clean. Really, a fantastic spot at a fantastic price. Would definitely stay again. Thanks! A+++

  • Je suis restée 3 semaines chez Mark et Rafael. Leur appartement est superbe et très bien situé dans un quartier vivant et près des transports et à 100 mètres du BART (métro de San Francisco qui vous relie directement à l'aéroport en 30mn ). La chambre est très propre et le lit est large et confortable. Je conseille vivement cette location !
    Mark and Rafael are greats hosts and very friendly. I highly recommend staying here. Thanks again !
