Quiet Garden Apartment one block from public transportation and walking distance to many restaurants, groceries, general shopping, and sights.
Relax in the comfort of a cozy, comfy apartment with wireless and cable or sit outside and enjoy the sun and garden while being five (ok, fifteen) minutes from some of the best dining in the world
Small bedroom with a standard double bed and connecting full bath. Bedroom contains a closet with sliding glass doors and storage chest. In the separate living area: writing desk, single/twin bed, comfortable couch and club chair. Flat screen TV and new eat-in kitchen.
We're extremely close to public transportation (99 on transportation score and 98 on walking score), but sadly, street parking is tedious. Numerous parking restrictions are enforced on a weekday basis in the neighborhood. I advise you to leave the car at home or use the city muni, or any of the convenient car services; City Share, Zip Car, Uber or Lyft.

Avid gardener and cook. We live on property with Trooper, the resident Tibetan Terrier
Rhonda Rodgers purchased this apartment in 1986
Weather is as good as San Francisco offers
Quiet solitude but walking distance to two of the hottest areas of the city: the Mission and Castro districts
The property was in a good location. It was very clean and felt like a home away from home. It was great to meet the Rodgers; very nice couple. I would love to stay here again and would recommend it to family or friends visiting the area.
We come to SFO yearly and always enjoy the city, and this time we decided to try out VRBO as it was a special occasion. A friend always uses VRBO and recommended it to me, and am really glad we did! Once we found Rhonda's ad it was only a matter of hours before she accepted our application to stay. About her place: not only is it only 1 block from Market Street, a hub for transport for BART, cab, bus and trolley to virtually everywhere you need or want to go, it is 1.5 blocks from Peet's Coffee (mmmm) and 3 short blocks from the centre of the thriving Castro area! The apartment itself is the lower floor of the typical SanFran house, which was perfect as we like it cool at night. We noticed the heaters available but did not have the need to use them as it was early June. The entrance was our own personal doorway at the front with a secure key as well as electronic code, which led into their beautiful picturesque garden out back. Wow. Treed over and brick tiled, it sported a bubbler fountain, a quiet area in back for reading or beveraging, as well as a wide variety of breathtaking plants, some domestic, fruit & vegetable, and tropical. They made a lot of effort to have a very enjoyable space everyone can appreciate. The apartment was exceedingly clean and comfortable, and well-stocked with amenities in the kitchen and bath. The sheets and towels were all very fresh, we had every TV channel seemingly possible, and the Wi-Fi was perfect for our 3 devices - we never had a problem. Although we had a fully stocked kitchen, we never did use it (other than the coffee machine) to make anything; there's plenty of places to go nearby for food and fun. We only saw Rhonda and Bill once, and they went out of their way to ensure our time there was special! TY again for a wonderful stay - we hope to use your place again in the future! (Say hi to your fantastic dog for us too - I wish he came down to visit more often!) We highly recommend Rhonda Rodgers' place for staying: it's a 5-star hotel in our books. :)
Love the layout of the apartment and all the amenities it offers...comfortable beds, great kitchen for those who still want to cook while they're traveling and couldn't ask for a better patio to unwind on at the end of a busy day! In addition, terrific restaurants, marketing, and public transportation are all within walking distance! This was our second stay and we hope to make it a yearly event as long as possible...thanks again, Rhonda & Bill for a fabulous stay!
We were visiting from the northeast for one month to visit with our twin baby granddaughters and also to explore San Francisco. (We also timed it so we would miss some cold snowy weather back home!) This VRBO is in the middle of the city yet located on a very quiet residential street where we felt very safe. At the end of an active day, it was nice to come back to this comfortable and cozy garden apartment. We relaxed in the evening and often made dinner in the full-size kitchen (recently renovated). There are also plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Public transportation is so convenient from here to get to both our daughter's home and all our day trips within the city. We had some cool weather but there are wall heaters that warm up the space very quickly.
Both Rhonda and Bill were gracious and accommodating. The back garden and patio was having work done at the time of our stay. Rhonda had informed us beforehand and gave us a break on the price. Our only disappointment was that it took much longer than we or Rhonda had expected. Future guests though will be able to fully enjoy the backyard with its beautiful landscaping, lighting and greenhouse...a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
We spent 16 nights, in total, in this very accommodating, spotlessly clean apartment in an amazingly quiet location. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped, the lounge area extremely comfortable, and the use of the patio an added bonus. Within easy reach, there are superb transport options of all types including BART, Muni, bus, trolley, etc . It is very quick and easy to get downtown. It is in close proximity to food stores (Safeways, Whole foods, etc), restaurants and other amenities. The hosts were gracious whilst respecting privacy. We also greatly appreciated the excellent bottle of wine that was left on both occasions we stayed in the apartment. We would definitely stay here again and have recommended it to friends, both American and English.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Great location to branch out from and enjoy the city.
