Wifi, cable TV, washing machine and dryer are available onsite. There are 2 bedrooms, each with a comfy queen bed (and an air mattress and additional linens in the closet in case an unexpected overnight guest appears, like a grand child). Large closets and drawer space are plentiful. There is one bathroom with separate shower and tub, fully equipped with linens, and a full kitchen with all you need to prepare meals at home if desired. And, we have a secure garage parking space with automated door for your car & bikes with an additional tandem driveway space for your visitors.

We live in the flat above. We're quiet, friendly and available to answer questions about our favorite city or offer a necessary item that you may have forgotten at home.
Erin purchased this condo in 2000
We're native San Franciscans and grew up here. We like the ease of the neighbhorhood. It's very much the city, but with just enough distance from the downtown hustle bustle. The serenity of Golden Gate Park is a welcome departure.
This is a charming flat with lots of San Francisco character. The bedrooms have a view of our well cared for yard. The flat is spacious, offers privacy, and a lot of conveniences.
This is a charming and most comfortable apartment. Armed with a public transportation map, the convenience of the N Judah a half block away meant we could find our way anywhere we chose to go. On non-touring days, we could enjoy a walk to Golden Gate Park with all it has to offer. Really good restaurants were plentiful and shops were a kick. As it turned out, we borrowed a car so made welcome use of the garage for parking. The kitchen, dining and living room were so well equipped and lovely that we hosted dinner for family from nearby Oakland. Most importantly, the owner was available to let us know a scheduling snafu meant the exterior renovation of the home lagged into our scheduled visit. She refunded a generous portion of our payment to make up for the inconvenience. This act of generosity to ensure a happy stay was welcomed, yet unexpected. We left with such warm feelings for the owner, the apartment and its ideal location that we will definitely return. I am please to give our highest recommendation for the rental of this apartment. We felt like hip San Franciscans by the end of the week.
I confirm all the superlatives the other reviewers have posted here: absolutely spotless, covered garage, and so forth. We're now trying to make plans for our third visit and, trust me, we are not easily impressed. The location, though not as well known as other spots in the city, has in recent years become a haven for adventurous diners: a couple of really excellent sushi spots, half a dozen good pizza places, American fusion at Park Chow, plus Indian, Korean, Thai, Chinese, bakeries, some happy and obviously popular bars, Starbucks, and on and on. This spot is half a block from the N Judah Muni line for easy access to the rest of the city, and there's a Zipcar outpost a short walk from the condo. Head another block further north and you'll reach the 9th Ave. entrance to Golden Gate Park, right by the botanical gardens, the Japanese gardens, the Academy of Sciences museum, and the deYoung art museum. A medium long walk to the east will take you to Haight-Ashbury, mecca of recreated hippie tourist junk, but at its center you'll find Booksmith, one of the few remaining great bookstores, also plenty of little coffee places and good people-watching. If you like doing your own cooking in the condo's well-appointed kitchen, you're within a short drive of Safeway, Trader Joe's, and Andronico's for a better selection of groceries than you'll find in many of San Francisco's undersized supermarkets. We've been staying here in order to attend some of the blockbuster shows at the deYoung; now, we're just delighted with the whole package.
We had a family member as UCSF Parnassus (and St. Mary's rehab.) and this was a very convenient location. Walk to food, shopping, entertainment and public transportation. EXTREMELY clean! Nicely decorated and spacious. Very hospitable and accomodating owner-onsite. Garage + 1 extra parking off street parking and laundry. Can't say enough good things. Would rent it again=Absolutely NO drawbacks! Very comfortable and safe. Thanks!
Very cozy. Very clean. Very comfortable beds. Very convenient location. Covered parking is a huge plus, especially in this neighborhood, where street parking could be difficult. Will definitely stay here again when visiting SF.
This home is in close proximity to UCSF Medical Center and is ideal for anyone wishing to be nearby the hospital while caring for a family member. The hospital is just a short walk or bus ride away.
We're also very nearby Golden Gate Park, just 3 blocks to the 9th Avenue entrance. In nearby Golden Gate Park you'll find the Arboretum, California Academy of Sciences, DeYoung Museum of Art, Japanese Tea Garden, modern play grounds, a carousel, tennis courts, lawn bowling, archery, executive golf course, Conservatory of Flowers, and open space for running, roller blading, biking, sunning, or just walking in the park. Throughout the summer & fall GGP plays host to numerous music festivals, concerts, theatre, and athletic events.
We're also surrounded by a delicious selection of restaurants, cafes, and shopping, all within walking distance. Our favorites are Pomelo for global cuisine, Fresco for Peruvian, Pasquale's for pizza, Social Kitchen for a burger & fries, Nopalito for Mexican and San Tung for Chinese. We enjoy many others, but there are way too many too name! We also like Inner Fog Wine Bar where a good-tasting selection of wines, both domestic and imported, is offered in a cozy environment. On Sundays a charming Farmer Market is open in the parking lot that serves the 9th Avenue/Irving Street corridor. A lovely selection of fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables, and flowers is readily available, as well as local meats, cheeses, breads, olive oils, nuts, and other artisanal goods such as honey, soaps, and confections. We usually grab a coffee across the street at The Beanery & and an artisan pastry at Arizmendi before hitting the market. Shopping is plentiful in the immediate neighborhood and it's an easy walk to Cole Valley and Haight Ashbury for an even wider variety. It's also easy to jump on the N Judah muni line, just a half block from the front door, and explore the entire city. One of my favorite weekend activities is a long walk in the neighborhood, incorporating the many outdoor staircases that exist and offer breathtaking views of the city.
Ocean Beach, Crissy Fields, the Presidio, Lincoln & Harding Parks, Sausalito, Muir Woods, the bike trails of Marin County, Mt. Tamalpais, and the San Francisco Zoo provides the opportunity for many activities. It's also a short drive to the Sonoma and Napa Valley wine countries and the beach communities of West Marin.
