About Lina & Alex

Hello! We've been living in San Francisco for over 25 years.

We’re friendly, open, intellectually curious and honest, world travelers and explorers. We love: a comfy environment with a hot cup of coffee; a clean modern bathroom and kitchen; eating delicious food. Our favorite places that we’ve traveled to are Brazil, Argentina, France, Israel, Italy and Japan.

As your hosts, we’re here if you need us, helpful but not intrusive, and we will certainly keep your privacy. The apartment has its own entrance, so you will feel like you're in a home-away-from-home.

We'd love to share our home and local knowledge with you and aim to make your visit to San Francisco as lovely, comfortable, and enjoyable as possible! Feel free to ask us any questions.

Lina & Alex purchased this apartment in 1989

Charming Sunset District Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I recently enjoyed spending 3 nights in Alex & Lina's beautiful apartment in the Sunset District, and I really cannot say enough good things about it. We enjoyed being close to the bustle of the City, but far enough from the busiest areas that we could enjoy some quiet and feel like locals during our stay. The apartment is five minutes (to drive) from scenic Ocean Beach, another 15 minutes to the beautiful Presidio, and within 30 minutes of just about anywhere else in the City.

The apartment itself is just lovely. The pictures show that it's bright and tasteful, but the pictures do not do justice to how immaculate and high-end everything is throughout the space. With luxury touches like soft closing drawer slides and cupboard hinges, a "rain" shower head, and nearly all the lighting on electric dimmer switches, this space really feels like a retreat.

Alex was extremely responsive throughout the communication before our stay, and also during our time there. We had some trouble with the wifi, but Alex promptly reset the router within a few minutes after we texted him. He & Lina were very kind and welcoming, and attentive without being intrusive.

Thanks again for a great stay, Alex & Lina! I hope we will be back! :)

Friendly hosts.

Transport system easy to navigate as it was a fair way from tourist spots. Invest in a travel card

Quaint Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

Alex and Lina are very welcoming and kind. They greet you when you arrive and instantly make you feel at home. The place is small, but spacious and the back deck is beautiful! The kitchen has limited supplies, so you may need to go to the store for cooking basics as well as your usual groceries. All in all a very nice place to spend a weekend.

A Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect. Just right for the two of us in a good spot to be able to Uber around to the spots we wanted to see. No complaints about the apartment, our hosts were awesome and it was easy to come and go without disturbing them. Close to the ocean, and easy spot to get around from as well as to and from the airport. If we end up back in San Fransisco we will for sure try to stay here again.

Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two night with our 13 year olds and the apartment was so comfortable and convenient for us! It was perfect! We were close to public transportation. The neighborhood was safe and parking was really easy. Alex was friendly and hospitable. We would definitely stay here again if/when we return to San Fran!

The Neighborhood:

San Francisco weather is variable, by which means it changes from minute-to-minute, street-to-street.

Our location is one of the best! Outer Sunset, Parkside jewel of San Francisco!

It's one of the safest neighborhoods in San Francisco very safe and quiet except for the sound of the ocean. We can walk the streets day or night and feel safe and comfortable.

The Outer Sunset is a deliciously silent residential area with old-fashioned stretches of shops and cafes along its main drags of Noriega and Taraval streets, adjacent to the Ocean Beach. The Outer Sunset is a popular destination for folks wishing to escape humid summer heat.

It is very easy to get Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Zoo, Sausalito, Napa Wine Country, freeway to Silicon Valley and only one street car directly to Downtown, Financial District, and Union Square.

Nearby many points of interest, attractions and museums, there is a short list:

de Young Museum

California Academy of Sciences

Japanese Tea Garden

Golden Gate Park hiking and biking trails

San Francisco Zoo is a fantastic chance for kids to experience wildlife firsthand

The 16th Ave Tiled Steps

Stern Grove, home of a long-running free performing-arts festival, held each summer

Surfing is very popular year-round

Weekly food truck and music events

Weekly farmers markets

We are also just two blocks away from the “L” Taraval Muni street car station (30th and Taraval street), which allows you to easily access the rest of the city and the heart of the action. Approximate travel times on “L” Muni from the house: Castro (15min); Powell (20min); Embarcadero (25min).

But you don't have to go far to enjoy the city. There are some amazing places to enjoy within a few minutes’ drive of the house, including the breathtaking views of Ocean Beach, which stretches from the Cliff House to Fort Funston, Land's End park (for amazing views of the Golden Gate bridge), Lake Merced (an urban lake for jogging/boating/fishing/golfing), others.

A few more blocks away are a Walgreens, Safeway (grocery store) and post office.

Free street parking is always available.
