Hayes Valley Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our apartment is perfectly located in the amazing Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. It is short walk to coffee houses, restaurants, boutique shopping, bakery, and groceries. The apartment is part of a large, 1880's building that is now a 5 unit, owner occupied TIC, and looks out on a garden along one side and a courtyard on the other. It is very quiet, as it is in the back of the property, away from the street. There are locked gates on either side of the property, giving you two means of entering and exiting the property.

The apartment is less than 10 minutes walk to the Symphony Hall, Opera House, City Hall and Civic Center area of San Francisco. Public transportation options are nearby and numerous.

If you are looking for a casual City apartment in one of the hippest neighborhoods, our apartment will be perfect.

About The Owner

We bought this apartment as a second home to avoid the long commute to Sonoma County. I am a percussionist for 38 years with the San Francisco Symphony and my wife plays fiddle in a Scottish fiddle group. We use VRBO for our vacation and tour needs and know how important it is for guests to feel comfortable, safe, and satisfied with their rental needs.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Regan & Tom,

Thought I'd leave you a note & you can put which ever parts you wish to in the reviews for your SF Apt.

We have stayed in many VRBO's in and out of the USA, over the past 15 years. This wonderful apt is one of our favorites. It is spacious for two people or four 2 couples. The apartment was meticulously clean, had plenty of towels, dishes, pots etc. The condiments here were a bonus. We have rarely had ann actual tea pot provided I thank you for that. The garden was unexpected and beautiful.

The apartment location was perfect: close to many things and within a nearby MUNI bus to everything. We have been to SF many times & HAyes Valley is now our favorite area to stay with restaurants, shops & parks close by. We had never been to the City Hall and were amazed by its grandeur & beauty.

Thanks for your lovely abode.



OWNER RESPONSE:

Thank you, Denise, for your wonderful review of our apartment. Since we use it on a regular basis and enjoy cooking, it's pretty easy to have it ready for guests to enjoy tea pots and the like!

Thanks again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5
We stay for 5 days in the apt and we have really a great time in SF. The apt is located in a neighbourhood with many restaurants and little shops. Other places in SF are easily accessible. We were there with our children (16,17) and we all sleeps very well. The bath was new and we enjoy it every evening. The kitchen was well-equipped. The host was very nice and helpful.

Perfect Easter break on Oak Street!

  • 5 of 5
Just spent there our 5 days Easter break. We had a great communication with the owner throughout the whole process. The apartment was clean and neat. Walking distance to major bus stops and many nice restaurants and shops. Neighborhood safe and friendly, didn't have any problems walking there with our 7 year old son after dark.
We didn't hear any noise from the street, just the birds chirping in the garden early in the morning.
If we ever decide to go to SF again, that would be our choice number one. And we will recommend this place to all our friends.
Great location, great owners!
Thank you Tom and Regan

Owner's Response: Regan and I are happy to know your stay in our apartment went so well. Your comment about the chirping birds was so nice to read! I hope your son had a chance to sample the fresh made ice cream at Smitten.
We hope to see you on your next visit.

Great little apartment tucked into a very convenient neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5
We rented this unit for our spring break trip. It was clean and comfortable. The garden entry is gorgeous. The bathroom layout is unconventional but very workable. This would be a great apartment for a couple. It can accommodate 4. This apartment is within 3 blocks of two major bus lines that can get you anywhere in town. There are many small neighborhood restaurants nearby if you don't feel like cooking. We really enjoyed our visit to San Francisco with this as our home base. We will definitely rent again if we find ourselves in the area.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Your comment about the bathroom was enjoyable. Yes. That bathroom is unconventional, but we have tried to make it as workable as possible. Thanks for noticing! We look forward to your visits in the future.

Charming apartment

  • 5 of 5
This apartment has a sweet walkway from the street behind a locked gate, with gardens bordering the path. The apartment is on the lower level yet has many windows. The bed was very comfortable and it had a great modern bathroom. The living room has a door that closed, ensuring privacy and a spacious feeling. The entire apartment was very clean and very quiet. We couldn't hear any street noise in the apartment at all.The best part though is the great Hayes Valley location- in walking distance to the symphony, opera, and many restaurants and cafes. We have already planned another stay at this apartment we were so happy here.

Wonderful Thanksgiving visit in San Francisco!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfect for our stay in San Francisco! It was a short walk to our son and daughter-in-law's apartment and within walking distance to restaurants and public transportation. The apartment is quiet, clean and comfortable. This was our first VRBO experience and Tom made us feel at ease throughout the entire process. I highly recommend this apartment and Tom as a property owner.
