Awesome studio apartment in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I love this small apartment. Located in a beautiful home in a quiet and convenient neighborhood. The front of the aprtment is mostly large windows looking out on a quiet street with almost no traffic and no noise.

Walk score is very high with destinations like Cole Valley, Haight Street, and Golden Gate Park just a few blocks away. San Francisco Muni (N Judah Line) is only a couple of blocks away with a 20 minute ride to the Embarcadero BART Station.

Wonderful and quiet stay

  • 4 of 5

Dear Van and Jeri, thank you very much that I could stay in your Apartment. It was a great stay especially the residential neighborhood is so wonderful. You are so helpful at any time of my stay. Thank you so much ! Perhaps you will have the possibility to improve the interior Fitting in the near future. I think new chairs, a new table and new carpet will improve the Apartment considerably. I hope I can stay in your Apartment the next year.

Best regards , Michael

A wonderful space

  • 5 of 5

When driving up, my friend looked at me and said "It's the most gorgeous street in San Francisco". The hosts were marvelous. They couldn't have been any nicer, and the dog - oh the dog. :) It was so sweet to have her push open the door with her nose in the mornings and come exploring in. The view off the back porch is gorgeous, and the house is convenient to several mass transit lines.

In short, a perfect place for a brief stay.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Van and Jeri's Orange Dog Manor for 4 months. It was a lovely experience! Van and Jeri were very friendly and helpful during my entire stay. The studio is small (probably a bit too cozy for two for several months, but great for a couple during a shorter stay than I had or for a single person for a longer stay) but lovely. I appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and cooked several nights a week. The bed was comfortable and stocked with brand new pillows and plenty of fresh bedding. The location is perfect- a beautiful, quiet street right near Golden Gate park, UCSF, Inner Sunset farmer's market on Sundays, Upper Haight, and all sorts of public transit access around the city. All in all I would definitely recommend ODM for a stay.

A Small Gem!

  • 3 of 5

Van & Jeri were charming and very helpful! Maggie( the dog) was shared with us and fun! Comfortable bed and lovely linens. Good location with great public transportation, which is a must since City parking is difficult. A couple of wall hanging bedside tables might be helpful. Tried most of the Cole Valley restaurants and all were good.
