I am a San Francisco Unified School District Special Ed teacher who has lived in and loved this neighborhood for more than 20 years. Ashley and I enjoy making sure our guests get the most out of their visit and are glad to provide advice and directions as requested by guests. However, we won't intrude, and will wait for your request for help. This is a great location for travelers who love exploring urban environments on foot or using public transportation, which is very close and takes you all over the city.

Joe Bender purchased this apartment in 1986

We bought this property because of the neighborhood. It has a unique mix of walking convenience to all that a big city has to offer, such as music, theater, museums, restaurants and night life, and yet still retains a homey feeling.

The shops, restaurants, and nightlife of this neighborhood are exciting, dynamic and diverse. There is easy freeway access, and so many famous San Francisco sites within easy walking distance, including Alamo Square, Hayes Valley shopping, Opera Plaza, Symphony Hall, Theaters, Museums, The Castro District, City Hall and so much more. One ritual we enjoy is walking our dog at Alamo Square early in the evening during 'doggie social hour' when the best-behaved dogs play together in the park.

Just as expected , a pleasure

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Joe for a nice stay. The apartment was clean and well stocked. Plenty of everything like blankets,towels,dishs , cookware, pillows etc.
The location is very convenient for those without a car. We used the F-line ( 10 minute walk ) , and multiple bus lines ( 5 minute walk ) , there is also a small grocery market 2 blocks away.
The only thing I could suggest is to replace the uncomfortable futon with a comfortable couch ( for viewing tv and sleeping ). I must admit , I missed having a tv in the bedroom :)
Great stay and highly recommended !.

Great place in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Jon and Ashley for helping make our stay in SF so enjoyable. Both of you were so helpful and the flowers upon arrival were so sweet and much appreciated. The beds and bedding are amazing and the little backyard with the lights was very quaint. Location very convenient and centrally located. Kitchen amenities were good and our overall stay was delightful!

Late March San Francisco Trip

  • 4 of 5
Three people spent the weekend in San Francisco and seen as much of the sites as we could. The basement apartment suite is very well located as it is about 20 mins walking distance too a municipal rail station.From here you have quick access to a large portion of the city.
The grocery stores are about 15-20mins away.We tried to get a week long pass to the local gym but that didn't work out.We did however run in the Panhandle park each morning which is also 15-20mins away.
The only disadvantage of this place is the plumbing.The shower is weak due to the poor water pressure and the potable water screens on the tub drain...I would assume that is because of the poor plumbing condition of the house.This is understandable as the house is over 100 years old.
Many thanks to Joe and Ashley...we appreciated your home and hospitality!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry our old plumbing left something to be desired. We have since hired a plumber, who solved the problem with a new shower head that has some kind of booster. It really is better, and I will ask future guests to weigh in. Thanks for a great review.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5
We had a great week in Joe and Ashley's suite. Once we figured out how to work the shower (thanks to Ashley) everything worked great. Joe and Ashley have created a wonderful home away from home and are great hosts. The beds in the bedrooms are very comfortable. We slept great. The fold down sofa in the living room, not so great. Take advantage of the inflatable mattress they have available if you need more sleeping area than the bedrooms.
The kitchen is fully equipped (including a great coffee maker). The bathroom is very comfortable and comes with lots of towels etc. The living room is bright and comfortable. All in all a very comfortable suite for 4 people.
Oak St. is a busy street, so expect lots of traffic. The location really couldn't be better though. It's walking distance to Market St. and Van Ness Ave., so lots of transit available. Lower Haight St., Hayes valley, the Civic Centre area and the Castro are all within an easy walk, and the rest of the city is just a ride on the MUNI system away.
