A peaceful and light filled retreat in San Francisco: Curl up and read your book. Enjoy a cup of coffee in this comfortable space or grab a seat in the courtyard. Listen to your iPod, bring your own laptop and use our wireless internet. Have this home as your base as you explore all that San Francisco has to offer!
Great natural light, high ceilings, outdoor space
Features: Hardwood floors, 2 people can comfortably sleep in the queen bed.
There is a pack n play available.
There is a roll away cot available.
High speed wireless Internet, just bring your laptop to access movies and shows online or use your Netflix account on the TV.
This flat is in a three unit building with a separate entry door.
The flat is on the ground floor with the front door to the studio in the courtyard. Entrance to the courtyard is through a garden gate.
Parking is relatively easy in our area! We are a few blocks outside of the
restricted 2 hour parking (so you can park all day if you need to)
and we are in a residential area.
There is street cleaning one day a week, so you just have to check the signs.
Occasionally, you may need to park a block or two away, but we can provide
a map showing the next easiest places to park if that ever happens.
When we lived there, we had 2 vehicles, and never used our garages
(it's a 1939 building and they are a tight squeeze!). It was never a problem and we could regularly park within a block.
Don't forget to 'curb your wheels' on hills (any slope). There is a law in SF that you need to turn your wheels 'into' the curb (so that if your car came out of park for any reason, it would not go rolling into the next vehicle or down the road).
A leisurely walk to Golden Gate Park (De Young, Cal Academy, Japanese Tea Gardens, Botanical Gardens, Playgrounds, Buffalo, and so much more). Time your visit just right and be walking distance to one of the amazing and sometimes FREE music festivals such as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
N Judah Line (1 block away) - straight ride to downtown area.

I am from Atlanta, GA and my husband is from the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. After attending Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, I worked in Australia and traveled in New Zealand where I met my husband! We love San Francisco and loved living in the Inner Sunset. We have recently relocated to Sonoma County to raise our growing family and enjoy coming into the city periodically to walk the neighborhoods we know so well.
We originally lived in the Inner Sunset, then moved to Pacific Heights (which is also a great neighborhood, but with a completely different feel) and ended up moving back to the Inner Sunset. The Inner Sunset has a great location and is a wonderful neighborhood for living like the locals do. There are local restaurants for every budget from $-$$$$. And, we love being near Golden Gate Park because we enjoy the green space on a much more regular basis when it's right there!
Anne McGinty purchased this apartment in 2008
We started our family at this building in the city and used to live in the top floor. With a growing family, we decided it was time for a little bit more space. But, this building and neighborhood is close to our hearts! The house was built in 1939 and we have tried to retain much of that charm. We painted the exterior of the building in 2014 from a peeling and old white to vibrant sky and ocean blues. In 2013, we added solar panels for the entire building. Little by little, we have been improving this property because we love it, the neighborhood and our neighbors! And, we hope you do too!
We fell in love with the space and how light and airy the place feels. Sometimes the Inner Sunset feels like one of the undiscovered neighborhoods of the city - it's GREAT and recently some very established boutiques and restaurants have decided to join this increasingly popular spot. The Inner Sunset is the main neighborhood for anyone working at UCSF, including new interns and residents! It's down to earth and you can grab a burrito for $5, but it also has some of the best award-winning restaurants in town including Ebisu (Japanese) and Marnee (Thai). There is an increasing list of delicious restaurants: Nopalito (Mexican), Pasion (Peruvian), San Tung (authentic Chinese), Social (Brewery), PPQ (voted best pho vietnamese in SF). So, you can eat on the cheap or go out for a slightly pricier dinner - go on a date or go out with your family! We love the peace and quiet with the close proximity to the boutiques and restaurants... It makes for a great walk home after dinner.
We stayed three nights and the studio was a perfect base camp to explore the city. We arrived late but had no trouble finding the building or getting inside. Its in a safe neighborhood with on street parking right out front. The studio is cute, clean and quiet. The bed is firm and comfortable with good linens and pillows. A pack n play and booster seat were available for our 1 year old. Wifi and cable was nice to have and worked well. It's an older building with a few quirks but has character. The location was a great surprise. There are some fantastic restaurants nearby, a great bakery and coffee shops for the morning stroll. The mosaic stairs are literally across the street leading to a park with awesome views of the city and bay. We walked everywhere - Haight Street, Golden Gate Park are easy to get to. The ocean is a quick drive. One side note is that the studio seems to be in the windiest and coolest park of the city. Bring a jacket and layers, even in May. Overall totally satisfied with the accommodations, way better than a hotel!
We truly enjoyed this studio. There were so many personal touches - afghan on the chair, tea bags for relaxing with a cup of tea in the garden, spices in the pantry, cards, games, books, etc. It was a quiet little sanctuary in the "big city". Restaurants and grocery store were very convenient along with close proximity to the beautiful Golden Gate Park. The owners were very helpful with any questions we had prior to our stay. Our only negative was the walk from Judah to Kirkham. It's a fairly steep hill for this old Grandma & Papa, but it was no big deal for our son & his family. After all, it is San Francisco!
We loved our stay in the inner sunset, the apartment was very clean and comfortable! Perfect after the many adventures taken throughout the city! There were so many wonderful places to choose from in walking distance to eat, drink, and be merry! Thank you so much Ashley for our wonderful stay!
The cute studio apartment is in a good and safe neighborhood, where you can walk to excellent restaurants, markets, and coffee shops. The owners won't intrude during your stay; we never saw them during our visit, and the communication beforehand was prompt. The garden was beautiful, although rain and cool weather didn't allow us to take advantage of sitting outdoors and enjoying it. Generally, this was a fine enough place to stay for a few days, but we do have to say that the mold in the bathroom (bathtub walls), missing towel bar in the tub area and dead bugs on the ceiling near the bathroom door were a real turn off. We appreciate the fact that it's hard to keep these places clean with the San Francisco damp climate . . . still, because of this, it wasn't up to the standards of other VRBOs we've stayed at in the city. I don't think we'll be back.
Quiet neighborhood. Super easy to get anywhere in San Fran with the Muni!
Great little studio with everything needed for a comfortable stay. I love the Inner Sunset, it's a quiet residential neighborhood but close to transit and Golden Gate Park -- 1 block to the N Judah streetcar, 4 blocks to big Andronico's market/deli, Pete's Coffee, restaurants, etc. The studio's little garden would be perfect for morning coffee or evening glass of wine -- except in February. Hope to visit again in warmer weather!
