The Space

NOTE: Please contact me regarding availability before trying to make a reservation. The AirBnB calendar can be a little "iffy".

Two bedroom, one bathroom, top floor condo, with parking, in a 4 unit building one block from Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Early 20th century construction, hardwood floors, crown molding, and accent walls. Remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops, dishwasher, breakfast nook for two, and all the appointments. Formal dining room seats 6. Living room with sofa, easy chair, additional seating, and 55" flat screen TV with DVD. Large closets, and master bedroom has large walk-in closet, TV, and DVD. The garage also features full sized washer and dryer, with detergent, fabric softener, bleach, and dryer sheets, and these are free for guests to use. Master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the guest bedroom has a couch/futon that opens into a bed that sleeps two. There is wireless internet, and there is a desk with a computer that guests are free to use.

Guests can expect a clean, elegant, comfortable, and nicely-appointed accommodation with slightly old-world styling. Clean bedding is provided, along with extra blankets and pillows, and plenty of clean towels. By design, little food will be left in the house, but what remains is free for guests to use. Mainly, that will be staples like salt, pepper, butter, oil, spices, and a few other minor ingredients. In the bathroom, only toilet tissue is provided, but soap, shampoo, and all other toiletries are guests' responsibility.

Unit is located in the Outer Richmond District of San Francisco. Golden Gate Park is one block away and features abundant walking and hiking paths, bicycling, boating, museums, flower gardens, etc. The Richmond is a relatively quiet and clean residential district away from the hustle and bustle of other parts of the city. Geary Street is a major SF thoroughfare 3 blocks away, and hosts an abundance of shops, restaurants, cafes, and night spots. It's also easy to get to Ocean Beach, the Presidio, and other museums from this location.

Public transportation via the MUNI bus is readily available. Weekday mornings and afternoons, downtown is approximately 30 minutes away by express bus, and other times of the day or week, limited or regular service buses will take you there or elsewhere in just a little more time.

In short, this is a warm, elegant, cozy, and clean place in a quiet neighborhood, and it serves as a perfect launchpad for adventures in the city and beyond.

Guest Access

The whole apartment, with two bedrooms, bathroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen. 1-car coded-entry garage, with washer/dryer, laundry detergent, etc. Large flat-screen TV in the living room with Roku internet TV (Netflix, etc.), DVD player (non Blu-ray) and a dozen or so movies. Small flat-screen TV in the master bedroom with Apple TV (Netflix, etc.)

Interaction with Guests

I only rent my place out when I'm traveling, so I'll never be sharing the place with guests. I have no aversion to meeting with or interacting with guests (it's nice to meet new people), but typically my travels don't overlap with those of my guests so usually guests just get codes and instructions for the various entry systems.

The Neighborhood

I love my neighborhood's location most of all. Bounded by Golden Gate Park, the Pacific Ocean, the Presidio, and by Highway 1, it's nicely proportioned, close to many attactions, and centrally-located. It's also safe, quiet ((email hidden) is the city), and people are friendly.

Getting around

San Francisco is served by an elaborate network of busses and street-cars that will take you most places that you want to go. In particular, Geary Street, which is a major artery linking the western residential neighborhoods to downtown on the east side of the city, is just 3 blocks from my house. From there, it's easy to get downtown on any of the 38 busses (especially, the 38L).

Other Things to Note

Golden Gate park closes a substantial portion of John F. Kennedy Drive (one of its 2 major thoroughfares) to car traffic in the middle of the day on Saturday and Sunday. It's a safe and pleasant setting for walking, running, bicycling, etc., especially with children.

  • David have a really great flat, very suitable for comfort living even for long time and with child. Big fridge, oven, dishwasher - all staff what you need. Great location - two block from nice grocery store and bus stations, near park. For us was very important to have garage (we were with car).

    David response very quickly and constructive - it was a pleasure to communicate with them. Absolutely recommended!

  • We had a great stay in San Francisco. Davids apartement is close to the Golden Gate Park and a perfect starting point for a trip to the Golden Gate Bridge. For a complete sightseeing trip through the city it is advisible to rent a car. Davids home is pretty clean and very cozy - a great place to spend some nights. Even before and during the organisation of our trip to SF David was very helpfull and friendly. I could not recommend it enough!

  • Had a great time in San Francisco and we could have not asked for a better place. Nice, clean, cozy and just a few minute from all the places we were interested to visit. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to come back!

  • Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez David, trés bel appartement, spaciaux, propre et dans un quartier trés calme. Joli parc à proximité
    Bus à 2min à pied, 20min de trajet environ pour être dans le centre ville de San Francisco. Il est préférable tout de même d'avoir un véhicule pour circuler dans San Francisco et aux alentours.
    Il y a 2 chambres avec de grands placards, 2 trés grands lits doubles, trés confortables. Un salle de bain fonctionnelle et un accès internet, une grande cuisine avec lave-vaisselle et tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner sur place. Une salle à manger agréable et conviviale.
    Nous avons trouver facilement l'endroit, à 10min même pas en voiture du Golden Gate ! Nous conseillons vivement cet endroit, très bon rapport qualité-prix et David a été trés disponible (nous ne l'avons pas vu mais les échanges internet étaient trés réactifs et le système pour récupérer les clés est trés pratique(box avec code d'accès)) !
    Merci pour tout !

About
Originally from Michgan, after doing a Ph.D. in astrophysics I moved to San Francisco where I am now a data scientist. I enjoy travelling, running, and books. And, I like just a little refinement in my life. So, I try to keep my place neat, clean, organized, and decorated with as much taste as I can muster. I love San Francisco, and I hope you enjoy it, too!
