great stay in a surfer-centric neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely tucked-away off Great Highway, a short walk from the beach. The Outer Sunset has a vibe all its own and Diane and Jon made us feel very welcome here. Very workable for a couple + guest, or another couple if you're already comfortable and/or have traveled together before. Comfy kitchen/dining and a very nice living space, quiet and away from the street sounds. We definitely hope to stay again!

Nice little place.

  • 4 of 5

Nice and clean little place in a quiet residential area near ocean. Far from touristy activities but choose it like that.

Master bedroom a little bit hard but fine enough for a couple days.

Had a great time.

Perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of four had a great time at Diane's property. She communicated with me well ahead of our arrival with instructions to access the apartment. When we arrived everything was clean and the space is cozy. It's a great location for beach walking with a grocery, pizza, and bakery nearby. Diane and her husband were very accommodating when we asked to do laundry. It was easy to access the city via Lyft, and parking is easy if you have a car. There is a bus line close by, but we chose not to use it. They have a big dog, who is very sweet. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to anyone coming to San Francisco.

Great resting spot.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and quiet apartment, beach is across street and close enough to shops for coffee and some groceries. During our stay in July it was too windy/foggy for a swim but kids had fun on sand dunes. Easy access to transportation to get around city. Good open and free parking. Hosts where very nice and helpful. Would definitely try to stay here again!

I recommend trying the baked king crab and garlic noodles at Thanh Long's on Judah St. highlight of my trip!

Wonderful place and the owners were so wonderfully accommodating!

  • 4 of 5

Such a quiet, wonderful place to stay with plenty of space. Renters should be aware that it's a bit of a commute to get to the center of the city at times, but the quiet location near the ocean was wonderful. Got to watch a beautiful sunset. Would definitely rent again.
