Overview

About the property

Seperate 1 bedroom apartment in a nicely remodeled 1900's Victorian Home.

Our 2-unit Victorian home and was built in 1906. The lower unit is a completely separate 1 bedroom unit. We’ve done extensive work on the home and land. It is a double sized lot so half of the land is landscaped with waterfall and pond with fish, over 15 varieties of Hawaiian and Polynesian plants and an expansive yard. Please note because of the serious drought we have discontinued watering the lawn. All other plants are watered by recycled or catchment water. It is a 2 unit home, we live above and Halekipa (the guest home) is on the first level. Our 1 bedroom apartment features Bamboo wood floors, carpet in the bedroom, full size washer and dryer in unit, updated appliances, full size bed and pull out couch in living. It can fit 4. There are extra pillows, blankets, sheets and towels for you also. We also have a few things for children (boys and girls sleeping bags and a few games…still adding on to this. The home is equipped with High speed WIFI and Cable T.V. (Astound) as well. This property also dubs as the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center. You’ll notice a dance studio and library on the land as well. Once a week there are classes (dance) and once a month classes on cultural arts/crafts (weaving and lei making). Our home was awarded the Beautification award for South San Francisco in 2011 for the most beautiful Home in South San Francisco!

We are located in downtown South San Francisco (SSF) all restaurants are walking distance (Starbucks, Pete’s, Subway, multiple Chinese and Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese , Korean, Italian, Argentinian, American, Japanese and more). There are a few grocery, liquor and drug stores within a block. Some of our favorite restaurants: For Breakfast – Cable Car Café (nothing fancy, just quick good ole fashioned breakfast), For Lunch - La Morena (best al pastor nachos, tacos and plates), For Dinner - Izanami (great specials, brand new and nice atmosphere, some killer Ramen!). If you’ve never had See’s candy, the factory is down the street you might want to go in for samples ;-)

Everything you could possibly need is within 1 mile (drug stores, department stores, chain restaurants etc..) Most people stay at our place go site seeing. There is 1 car parking designated for our guest but if you don’t drive bus is within 1 block, Train (Cal. Train) is 4 blocks, Bart is 10 blocks away. All of these can take you somewhere interesting. Downtown San Francisco is about 10 minutes by car. Besides San Francisco you should make time to explore our coast especially downtown Pacifica and cruise along famous highway 1 to visit downtown Half Moon Bay!

We look forward to pleasant and friendly guests. We are easy going and expect our guests to be also.

About Kawika Alfiche & Kia`i Maurille

Our names are Kawika and Kia'i and we are the owners of this property and we currently live on the property. Here we also run both the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center and the Hawaiian Cultural Dance Group called Halau o Keikiali'i travelling world-wide preserving & perpetuating the rich Culture of Hawaii. Let the Spirit of Aloha welcome you to this perfect weekend getaway.

Kawika Alfiche & Kia`i Maurille purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Kawika Alfiche & Kia`i Maurille chose San Fernando

We fell in love with this property when we first saw it. Because it is located on a double wide lot, we were amazed with the space and all the potential it offered. Over the years, we lovingly worked on landscaping by adding trees, plants, & foliage most of which are native to Hawaii. We continued by adding a pond & waterfall and worked on improving the dwellings including our dance studio located on back of the premises.

What makes this apartment unique

We love beautiful Victorians because they have so much character and this home was exactly what we were looking for when we made our move to the Peninsula. Our goal was to bring a piece of Hawaii to this land, to grow native plants, and have a place to continue our Cultural work. We love the fact that this area where our home is located is so convenient to shopping, restaurants, shopping malls, theaters, and all the specialty shops we could ever need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

During a recent visit to San Francisco we were fortunate to find this beautiful apartment.The property is lovely - lush with plants and trees, inside was decorated beautifully, Spacious and included everything we needed.We had easy access to our car which could be hard to find in the city. Within the walking distance surrounding the place we found a variety of restaurants and shops. The owners of were helpful and hospitable making us feel welcome. I will definitely stay here again.

Outstanding!

A perfect stay from start to finish. The property grounds are beautiful, having a parking space was amazing, the owner was very kind and prompt with all messages, and the unit itself was great. We couldn't have been happier.

Nice property a block off main street...

  • 4 of 5

No issues with the property, the bathroom is compact but functional. Has a washer/ dryer which is worth its weight in gold when your traveling! Has a full kitchen so you don't have to eat out every day too. No tub, shower only. Easy walk to main street and food.

Cozy comfortable apartment in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My family of three spent 5 nights in this adorable apartment. The location was perfect, very close to the airport, but in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of restaurants, produce markets, shops, and delicious coffee. Safe and free parking space allowed us to keep our rental car, but a car is not needed if you don't mind a mile walk to the train or plan to take Uber or Lyft. The apartment is very private despite the dance school and residents. We met only friendly, helpful folks. The garden/pond area is tranquil and so lovely at any time of day. The apartment is adorable and very well represented by the photos provided online. It was clean and awaiting our arrival. The furnishings were comfortable. There was absolutely everything we needed. Cooking a full meal is possible. The washer and dryer were very much appreciated. There are sliding doors to the bedroom to allow for privacy. The living room sofa opens up to a full size bed. Two adults and a 10 year old child stayed very comfortably. It was a nice place to come back to after long days of sightseeing in San Francisco. I highly recommend this property. The rental instructions were easy and very clear. The process was effortless. We felt safe and supported if we needed anything. Also there are nice parks within walking distance as well as bike trails and a community pool. I wish we had explored the S. San Francisco area a little more. Next time!!
