About the property

Beautiful, remodeled edwardian flat in close proximity to central transit

Sunny and peaceful flat located on a one block street; short easy walk to major public transportation (99 on the walking/transit score, but 10 on the parking score). Features a fully stocked gourmet kitchen, designer furnishings, one-of-a-kind art. Looks onto a beautiful garden and dedicated deck. Only 1.5 blocks from the city's main transit artery (10 minutes to downtown) as well as grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacy, and parks (Duboce and Dolores). Walk to 'Gourmet Gulch'. Charming Edwardian property originally built in 1904, but remodeled in 2012. The flat displays pride of ownership throughout - we live on site.

About Rhonda Rodgers

Avid gardener and cook. Crazy about Trooper Larry, the resident Tibetan Terrier and bon vivant. We live on property.

Rhonda Rodgers purchased this apartment in 1986

Why Rhonda Rodgers chose Mission District

Best weather and centrally located. Lots of thought and care put in to guests' comfort.

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet solitude but walking distance to two of the hottest areas in the city - 'the' Castro and 'the' Mission. On a quiet one block street but an easy walk to public trains/streetcar/buses. 10 minutes to Union Square, Embarcadero, Moscone Convention Center, City Hall, and the financial district. Nice outlook to garden. Designed with your comfort in mind. Leave your car at home and take public trans/UBER/Lyft/ZIP. Street parking is a hassle in this neighborhood and commercial parking is quite expensive.

Perfect location, quiet comfortable space

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place to explore the city from! Everything is either walking or MUNI distance away, with transit stops right around the corner. Great food, stores, yoga, gym within blocks. Really nice home with a fantastic cool and quiet back deck that is the perfect refuge. Excellent kitchen. Owner is helpful and friendly.

It was perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. The location allowed us to easily access public transportation, walk to good restaurants and shop at Whole Foods. The house was immaculate and well stocked if you chose to cook (we did not!) There is a wonderful backyard and sufficient space for our family of 5. In short it was a gem of a place and we had a gem of a timne.

Our family loved staying in San Francisco because the house is very comfortable, quiet, well located in the city and Rhonda and her husband were very generous and sympathetic! We loved it! Very good memories of holidays!

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed that this property for the 2nd time.

Rhonda has completely redone the backyard and it's beautiful.

You can't beat the location. Close to Castro, Haight, MIssion, Market - everything.

High thread count sheets and comfortable beds.

Well stocked kitchen with modern appliances!

Beautiful San fran experience in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here summer of 2015 for almost 2 weeks and found this place to be absolutely perfect for our family. The kitchen is ideal for the family that wants to eat in or do a bit of cooking. Everything we needed was available.

Our Granny has lived on Sharon street for 30 years and we wanted a place not too far and we still can't believe we found this gem right across the street. Rhonda was so helpful and we are returning this summer! Our kids walked everyday to Delores Park and all over the city with us taking in the Pacific air and attractions.

You'll not be sorry and you'll probably be a repeat visitor after your stay in this beautiful Victorian apartment.
