Mission Dolores Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Monthly Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Living Room + Kitchen + Split Bath, Sleeps 2

Experience the private first floor apartment at Mission Manor, an enchanting Edwardian building perfectly situated in San Francisco’s vibrant Mission Dolores neighborhood, a block and a half from Mission Dolores Park. This luxury apartment offers both period details and modern comforts. Kick off your shoes and unwind. Check your email on the building’s secure wifi network. Pull a good book from the library shelves.

Exhale. Relax. You're home.

In your bedroom, you'll have the best sleep of your life on our California King memory foam pillow-top mattress, with 500 thread count Egyptian-cotton sheets.

The kitchen features all high-end stainless appliances, including a full size, French-door refrigerator with ice-maker and generous bottom freezer; four burner stove and oven, full size dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, Keurig coffee maker and electric kettle. Cupboards are stocked with dishes, glassware, flatware, pots and pans and all necessary cooking utensils.

Your washer/dryer is located in the basement.

The European style split bath features a shower and sink in one room and a toilet and sink in another. Ample towels and extra linens are stocked in the closet.

The apartment is ideally located on 17th Street between Dolores and Guerrero Streets in Mission Dolores, the ‘Sunbelt’ of San Francisco. Mission Dolores is in between San Francisco’s colorful Castro District and the friendly Noe Valley neighborhood. With a Walk Score of 95, a Transit Score of 99 and a Biking score of 99, you don’t need a car. This apartment’s location ranks it as both a Walker’s Paradise and Rider’s Paradise on For the occasional times when you do want a car, a Zip Car lot is just a block and a half away or Enterprise will pick you up here in their courtesy car to take you to their rental lot location about a mile away.

During the rest of the time, everything else is right here.

Serious foodies come from all over San Francisco to buy groceries at the legendary Bi-rite Grocery store and Tartines Bakery on 18th Street. Whole Foods and Safeway are also within walking distance and the City’s famous Rainbow Market as well as Costco is only a short drive away. For foodies who prefer dining out, there are over 76 restaurants and coffee shops to choose from within a ten block radius.

The apartment is just steps away from beautiful Dolores Park with its lighted tennis and basketball courts, soccer fields, off leash dog areas and one of the best children’s playgrounds in San Francisco. On weekends and after work hours, the park comes alive with picnics and gatherings of all kinds, including SF Parks and Recreation sponsored summertime concerts and outdoor movies. For more urban entertainment, there are theaters and numerous bars and clubs, movie houses and even a bowling alley with a gourmet restaurant.

For other shopping, go to a different part of the city for large chain stores. The Mission is for eclectic shoppers at the one-of-a-kind boutiques and galleries that line Mission Street, the Valencia Street Corridor and neighboring side streets.

So as not to confuse you when you read the reviews, please note:

This apartment used to be a short term vacation rental with a bed and breakfast component. We converted to renting it as a furnished monthly rental without food starting January, 2016.

The apartment was clean, comfortable and in a nice neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The stay was very enjoyable. We liked the neighborhood which was in a nice area for walking and restaurants.

We had a issue with a dog barking continuously in the same side by side unit. After 2 text messages the property manager responded that the owner has been contacted. We left and after returning in the evening, thank goodness, the barking stopped.

Great location! Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mission Manor! It was spacious, clean, comfortable, great location to walk and to pick up public transportation. The owner got back to us right away with a couple questions/concerns we had. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting San Francisco and would love to come back. Thanks again!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as represented and our stay was very comfortable. We had a car part of the trip and found the garages nearby and easy to use. Later the public transportation worked out perfectly. The restaurants all around the apartment were especially enjoyable and nothing far away. Communications with the owner and her support went easily and timely. We highly recommend this rental.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot to explore San Francisco from - 15 minutes or so from downtown with a walk and the BART, but also in an interesting part of the city for those looking for a more leisurely approach or who prefer walking and taking in the sights and sounds of the neighbourhood.

The apartment is in a good location and is in a fairly residential area.

Do not anticipate any gourmet cooking as the kitchen is a toaster oven/small microwave only but there are plenty of excellent restaurants and food shops in the neighbourhood. Milk and cereal was provided so no need for the midnight dash to find a 7/11!

The accommodation was comfortable, very clean and like being in a home from home. Recommended.

Mission Manor is surrounded by fantastic cafes and restaurants, easy to find, and close to a parking garage. It's clean, welcoming, and a great place to spend a long weekend (or year)!
