Our listing, "One Block," is a private apartment on the ground floor of a charming Victorian-style cottage, just a block from Golden Gate Park.
Walking distance to all of the park's major attractions, including the California Academy of Sciences, Steinhart Aquarium, De Young Art Museum, Japanese Tea Gardens, and Conservatory of Flowers. Dozens of wonderful ethnic restaurants are just a few blocks away: Thai, Burmese, Russian, Turkish, Vietnamese, and more! Grocery store and bike rental shop within two blocks. Close to USF and UCSF. Several public transit routes are nearby for easy access to the whole city.
Bedroom has a queen bed, and the living room has a sleeper futon, making the apartment perfect for a couple or small family. Fully equipped kitchen with a gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, and small breakfast table. One bathroom (tub and shower), washer and dryer. Huge plasma TV with cable, and WiFi. All linens are provided (sheets, towels, blankets, etc.)
The inner Richmond is a charming and diverse neighborhood, known for great Asian food. There are bars on Clement St. and Geary Blvd., but it is generally quiet at night. A great place to relax after a busy day seeing the city! Nearby neighborhoods such as the lower Haight, have active nightlife. You can easily walk or take public transit to and from the apartment in the evening.
We live in the upstairs flat and have been in San Francisco since 1966. We have raised two children in the city, and are happy to help you find your way around. If you want to experience San Francisco like a local, this is the place for you! Nearby restaurants are affordable and family-friendly. Having breakfast and coffee in our apartment, and getting basics at the grocery store, will make your trip easier and more affordable.
Parking anywhere in San Francisco can be difficult, but it is better in our neighborhood than in most. We recommend against renting a car, as you do not need one within the city. However if you do rent a car, you can usually find free street parking within a reasonable distance around our house.
We are kid-friendly, and this is a great location for children-- centrally located and convenient, but quiet at night. A new Pack'n'Play (meets new 2012 safety standards) is available, as well as a comfortable tatami foam mat for an extra person. Pets are negotiable.
There is a small fenced backyard, accessible from the back door in the kitchen. It is not particularly fancy, but some guests have found it very nice to have a place where small children can go outside without traffic concerns.
If you have questions, please feel free to ask. We look forward to your visit!
No loud noise after 11:00 pm.
Pets are negotiable.
