About Michael Simmons

We are East Coast transplants who both went to Berkeley and fell in love with the Bay Area. We've lived in the neighborhood for over 15 years and love the diversity and the convenience. We walk or ride our bikes everywhere. We have three kids and they love playing in the park across the street.

Michael Simmons purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Michael Simmons chose San Francisco

Hayes Valley is a great neighborhood and a jewel in San Francisco. Its one of the few neighborhoods that doesn't allow large chains and therefore all the restaurants and shops are unique. It has something for everyone from the little mom and pop Italian restaurant to the higher end restaurants. The restaurants range from american, french, seafood, southern, pizza, sushi and more all within a block away. There is a little grocery store for essentials.

What makes this apartment unique

We bought this house because we love the old Victorian with the high ceilings and big windows. We have lovingly restored it over the years.

Comfortable with exceptional hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very comfortable for our family of five. It is inviting, well-kept, and decorated tastefully. The neighborhood is a perfect base location too. I would highly recommend and hope to return again someday. Michael is a gifted host and it is obvious that he truely wants his guests to be comfortable and enjoy their stay. Thanks so much!

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a 2 day stopover with family in June. Felt like we had moved in to someone's home when we arrived. It had a nice homely feel, the fridge was surprisingly well stocked and had some nice touches as there was a nice welcoming bottle of wine with some crackers cheese and chocolate. The property is situated in a busy but friendly area of the city with some great restaurants and bars nearby. Michael was very accommodating and helpful in all aspects of booking and staying in this great apartment. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this property.

Excellent place! Charming and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

The place was fantastic. Wonderful charm and architecture. Close to several shops and restaurants. It was also in walking distance to the market st bus stop which was a surprisingly easy way to travel the city. The best part of all was Michael's hospitality, which was second to none. I recommend this place to anyone headed to SF.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay while visiting San Francisco. Very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. Only downside was that parking was not easy.
