We have lived in San Francisco for over twenty years. We are nature lovers and Cty dwellers. This mix is what we love about the Outer Richmond District of San Francisco. It enjoys easy access to the parks, ocean, and nature, yet within blocks to a Movie Theater, great restaurants and easy public transportation with four buslines to all of San Francisco's city attractions.

A very private and peaceful place to spend time in. Guests have enjoyed; sitting on the covered patio in all weather, watching the birds, and walking in the garden. Don't miss Sutro Park at sunset.

WHAT A COZY RETREAT!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 8 wonderful days in this charming and cozy apartment which was very well equiped, comfortable and stylishly decorated. The location is great too, with nearby access to markets, great cafes on Balboa and we really enjoyed strolling through Sutro Park. We had our car, but also took the bus on a few occasions in order to avoid expensive parking lot costs, and the bus stop on Geary was very convenient. Parking was not an issue, and there was only one occasion when we had to park a block away. All in all, having such a delightful and serene base really enhanced our vacation in beautiful San Francisco. Recommend highly!!! Thanks!

PERFECT SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 nights in this apartment and found it as delightful as previous reviewers had said. It was well equipped, cosy and had the benefit of a wonderful garden. Charmaine and Robert were welcoming but not intrusive and the helpful suggestions about nearby shops and restaurants proved to be ideal.
Could not recommend this too highly and would love to return.

SPENT 30 DAYS

The apartment was very nice. The gardens were wonderful. Charmaine and her husband were great to do business with. Outer Richmond is also a joy in its own right and the many restaurants are so convenient. I had previously been staying in Laurel Heights hotel but myuch perefer the apartment. There are few enough things in life that exceed your expectaions and, for me, this was one of them.

A LITTLE BIT OF PARADISE IN THE CITY !

  • 5 of 5
We will be back! Everything about this quiet retreat was extraordinary. It is charming and has absolutely everything that we could have possibly wanted or needed for the week.( the outdoor grill and table were great. ) The ambience with the indoor and outdoor living is delightful. We could step out the door and easily walk to the beach or the parks Or, the buses in the city are remarkable and extremely handy to this apt. Charmaine and Robert were the perfect hosts and ensured that we were comfortable.....and then we were off and exploring this grand city. We highly recommend this little " diamond " of a property ! As we previously wrote.....we will come back to this incredible garden retreat!

CHARMING ECLECTIC GET-AWAY

  • 4 of 5
We had a delightful stay in this San Francisco apartment. The ambiance is charming, the garden is gorgeous though the weather was too cool to be out in it much, the decor is eclectic, and the host is very accommodating and helpful.

There is a bus line just a half block away for easy access to downtown and Land's End. There is another bus south 2 blocks which can drop you off right in front of the Safeway. This,along with our Clipper Card, made it very easy to get about town.

All but one of our meals we prepared in the kitchen. Utensils and cookware were limited but do-able.

The only complaint was the internet access. During our week's stay we had to contact the owner 4 times to restart her router. We needed computer access to do our business and check email and chose this apartment as the listing stated there was internet available. Once notified the host restarted her router and we were in business again: just a little annoying.

All-in-all, a very nice stay!
