About This Listing
Planning a trip to San Francisco? Then why not stay in the heart of the city in the historic Haight Ashbury district. Located in a classic 1907 Victorian building, we have a fully furnished studio with two private bedrooms (Rm #1 & #2) with a shared bathroom in the basement level which has been recently updated
Feel free to browse through the pictures to get a better idea, but here's a quick description:
- The basement apartment has two bedrooms and a good size kitchen/living room with a backyard view.
-Rm #1: 12 ft by 8 ft, a queen bed with a comfortable mattress.
Other items in the room: a small desk ,closet and TV with over 200 channels.
-WiFi internet access is also included. Username and password will be provided upon check-in.
-LOCATION, Location, Location!! With Haight street literally being just a block away, there are never ending options for restaurants, pubs, shops, health food stores, boutiques & cafes
Extremely convenient public transportation: adjacent to 6 & 71 bus lines which take you straight down Market Street into the heart of San Francisco, also adjacent to the 43 bus line and two blocks from the 33 which takes you to the Mission District.
- Great food and bars! Across the street is Magnolia Gastropub and Brewery, and all less than 5 minutes away are: Squat & Gobble Cafe & Crepery, Pork Store Cafe, The Alembic, Hobson's Choice, and Cha Cha Cha.
- Many excellent grocery stores: Haight Street Market is 1.5 blocks away, Whole Foods is 5 blocks down Haight Street, and a new brand new Bi-Rite Store just opened up 8 blocks away.
- Boutique shopping galore: tons of specialty shops, thrift shops, and high end clothing stores right here on Haight Street.
-A post office is half a block away, so feel free to drop off a postcard to your friends/family on your walk to Haight Street.
-With its rich history, walking down Haight street is definitely an experience and gives you insight into why this was the heart of the Hippie movement! Diverse crowds and unique shops are all part of the experience.
-If you like to run/bike/or just enjoy being outdoors, you are in luck. Our house is a block away from the pan handle park. If you want the real deal, then just walk down three blocks and find yourself at the start of Golden Gate Park, where there are multiple museums (Academy of Sciences, Flower Conservatory, etc) and year around events. Always something to do here!
-If you are a fan of water, then a quick 15 minute drive away is the Pacific Ocean, where on warm and yes even cold weekends, people can be found lounging, surfing, swimming, etc!
-A bike rental place is a few blocks down, so this is another fantastic way to explore the city on a bike. You can put your bike in the back yard or the garage.
My wife and I live in the upstairs unit of the building. We are both working professionals and are home usually in the evenings. In case of Emergencies, we can be reached via the landline. The great thing about living on site is it allows us to address any questions/concerns you may have. We are both laid back and respectful. We have lived in this city for nearly 20 years, so we can help you with suggestions on places to visit, eat, etc.
Thank you for visiting our page! Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding this listing. We look forward to having you stay with us.
PEACE. LOVE. HAIGHT.

Yes! Walk up one block to Haight Street and you will find the many Bus lines heading to downtown or towards Ocean Beach. The beauty about being located centrally is the easy accessibility!

Wir hatten zuerst Zimmer #1 gebucht, das für einen kurzen Aufenthalt ok ist. Für unseren längeren 2. Aufenthalt haben wir dann das Zimmer #3 im OG gewählt, das grösser und heller ist und unseren Anforderungen in allen Belangen entsprach. Es verfügt über einen separaten Raum für Kleider und Gepäck, den wir sehr geschätzt haben. Es war alles sehr sauber, und mit den Gastgebern haben wir uns bestens verstanden. Am Tag der Abreise konnten wir das Gepäck noch bis zum Abflug am Abend im Haus lagern. Die Lage der Unterkunft ist für Touristen sehr attraktiv, ruhig und doch in unmittelbarer Nähe des beliebten Haight/Ashbury. Gleich um die Ecke hat's auch Haltestellen für mehrere Buslinien, mit denen man schnell überall hin gelangt. Wir waren mit unserer Unterkunft sehr zufrieden und würden sie jederzeit wieder buchen.
El barrio es muy céntrico, fácil moverse por toda la ciudad desde allí.
El alojamiento es pequeño y algo oscuro, la habitación que nos tocó no tiene ventilación y es muy justa. Los espacios compartidos, sala-cocina y baño, son muy básicos pero suficientes.
Tuvimos un problema con el baño y lo solucionaron en seguida.
War sauber und alles wie beschrieben. Netter Empfang durch Anthony. Wir haben schon einen nächsten Termin gebucht :-).
Quiet safe location in Haight district, close to Golden Gate Park. Ģreat budget option for SF
We were looking for a quiet space and with great luck, we got it. Ashir's place is not only in a great location, but it's incrdibly quiet and comfortable. The shared kitchen was lovely, and the space was perfect for our needs.
We found that ashir answered all of our questions promptly and was easy to get ahold of. The place was clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Ashir's place was very much as advertised. The location in the Haight was great - close to restaurants, bars, shopping, and several busses to get elsewhere in the city. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space in the shared kitchen/living area. The bathroom was perhaps not quite as clean as we would have liked, but then again it was being shared with another guest. Ashir was responsive to our questions, and I would recommend his place to other travelers!
I loved staying here! The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant, but only a few steps away from the bustling Haight Street. I felt safe in this part of SF and really enjoyed it here. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Thank you to Ashir and Margaret!
