The Space

This lovely garden studio is a one-room suite with attached kitchenette and full bathroom. This unit is fully private with direct access from the street. The owner lives upstairs and there is a separate apartment adjacent to the studio.

The room is 268 ft² (24 m²) and furnished with a queen sized bed that will comfortably sleep two. There is also a sofa that folds out to sleep an additional person, so a couple with child will sleep comfortably. The unit is ideal for one or two people, but it can sleep three. There is a TV with basic cable and a DVD player.

The apartment opens up to a garden where you can sit out on a lovely day.

The kitchenette is fully equipped and includes a coffee machine, kettle, 2-burner cooktop, microwave, toaster oven and mini-refrigerator. It does not have a full sized oven. There is a private, full bathroom with shower. All water from the tap is filtered.

This studio is conveniently located two blocks from Golden Gate Park and USF, with a short walk to the Haight-Ashbury district and UCSF to the south. The Presidio, Geary and Clement St. business corridors are a few blocks to the north. Just down the street is Rossi Recreation Center, with pool, tennis courts, and playground.

We are located right along a bus line that will take you downtown to the Union Square area, financial district and Embarcadero.

This apartment is a quiet and comfortable place to unwind after a day exploring San Francisco. Enjoy your stay!

Guest Access

You will have a fully private apartment, including private bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. There is a garden out the back that is shared and you are welcome to enjoy. Help yourself to lemons or herbs, but please leave the rest of the vegetables that are growing.

Interaction with Guests

This unit is fully private with direct access from the street. I live upstairs and am available to answer any questions you might have. I'm often out of town but am reachable by phone.

The Neighborhood

The Lone Mountain neighborhood (also part of the Inner Richmond neighborhood) is the home of the University of San Francisco. It is a quiet, residential neighborhood with basic amenities such as cafes, laundry, and groceries.

Getting Around

The public transportation in SF is pretty good. From the apartment, there is a bus line that will take you to the city center. You catch the 31 bus at Arguello and Turk, one block from the apartment, and get off at Powell & Market St. It’s about a 25 minute ride. At Powell and Market St., there are many options. Union Square and the major shopping district is in this area. You can also catch the cable car here, which will take you on a scenic ride to Fisherman’s Wharf, a major tourist destination.

The tourist information center is also located here, where you can buy a Muni Passport that will give you unlimited rides on busses, street cars, and cable cars. I highly recommend it. A 7 day pass costs $29. Look up "sfmta muni passport" for more information.

Back at the apartment, there is another bus that runs along Arguello Blvd., one block from the apartment. It is the 33 bus. This bus takes you to the Haight-Ashbury, Castro, and Mission district neighborhoods, which are unique neighborhoods that offer a more local feel.

Other Things to Note

Parking Notes

I generally recommend to visitors not to have a car unless you will be making day trips outside the city. There are many good transportation options to get around within the city. However, if you really need a car you will need a parking permit.

You can get a Muni Passport that will give you unlimited rides on busses, street cars, and cable cars. Also, if you have an iPhone or Android phone there are applications that will summon a car to take you wherever you need to go. This is similar to taxi service but is much better. Type "sf ridesharing services" into your search engine. I recommend SideCar.
