Hi, I am Sarah (married to Gus with little Fiona ) a native San Franciscan.
When we are in Sonoma County (btw we have a place to share there too) we like to host our cozy apartment in the city. It's not really kid friendly but some have stayed; we can chat about this.
Our place is perfect for singles/couples to explore Haight Ashbury, Inner Sunset, Golden Gate Park/De Young & Academy of Science Museums ( across the street ), Western Addition, Hayes Valley and the Pacific Ocean or Golden Gate Bridge.
Also, conveniently there's a Safeway Supermarket across the street & a Whole Foods Market a 10 minute walk (website hidden). I have never cancelled a reservation; when someone books on "Instant Book" and you have no idea what that is for dates that you did not approve this does not constitute a "cancellation" in my book.
