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 unit features Bamboo wood floors, carpet in the bedroom, washer and dryer in unit, updated appliances, full size bed and pull out couch in living. It can comfortably 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!
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
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.
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.
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.
My two girls (ages 12 and 13) and I were delighted with this tucked-away gem!! Perfect size for 2-4 people. Off-street parking was a definite plus. Easy freeway access to all around the Bay Area. Washer and dryer were an unexpected bonus after being baptized by a passing sea gull down at the Wharf!! Highly recommended; would stay here again!! Mahalo!!
We really enjoyed our stay , we were there for a little bit more than a week. We had everything we needed even beach towels! The place was very clean, we had a parking space and it was easy to go to San Francisco, to the airport or to the south (Santa Cruz, Montery, etc) Laroche Family, Laval, Qc, Canada
Perfect place for my family to spent 4 nights in the Bay area. The pullout bed was plenty big for our kids (ages 9 and 6). The property was nice and clean. The place is wonderfully decorated, the kitchen is equipped with all we needed for breakfast and dinner before and after we heading into the city. It took about 25 minutes to reach downtown.
This apt was located conveniently to downtown South San Francisco and easy access to San Francisco.Our problem with the place was cleanliness.
The towels in the bathroom had something black in them, the microwave had not been cleaned, there were stains on the rug in the main area. I mentioned this to the owner and he said that he would look into it and after review agreed that the cleaning could be better. But the thing that surprised me the most was the black "gunk" along the gray plastic rubber in the washing machine. I noticed in the morning we were leaving (after I washed some clothes) and did not have a change to show the owner. The place could be perfect - just needs a deep cleaning!!! The owner was responsive to our emails when the cable box no longer worked.
This location is perfect for us to stay at to visit our family in South San Francisco. The facilities are well kept and has everything that we need to make our stay enjoyable. Communications with the owners were always handled promptly and efficiently. We hope to stay here again as soon as the next opportunity presents itself.
We stayed here when we came down to San Francisco for the Super Bowl. It was a great place to stay. It was exactly like the pictures, cute and clean. We loved the beautiful garden area right outside our door. It had everything that we needed in the kitchen. Very comfortable bed. There were 4 of us for part of the time and there was plenty of room. It was a great location for us. We had access to a parking spot, which was great. Easy access to the freeways and the Bart. Cute neighborhood. Very quiet. Some good restaurants within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again if we come down that way.

Just around the corner on our downtown main street (Grand Ave) there are many options for food all times of the day... A couple great breakfast houses, Mexican food, Thai, Chinese, Italian, American, Japanese, El Salvadorian and more!
