Downtown Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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 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!

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.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I spent a great week in this apartment. It's got everything you would need for a comfortable stay and then some. even a complementary bottle of wine. Unfortunately I don't drink so I left it for the next lucky renters. The apartment is really conveniently located too, close to both SFO airport and San Francisco. If you don't have a car, the South San Francisco BART station is really nearby. Because of its proximity to BART I found it actually to be a lot more convenient than staying in some more outlying neighborhoods in San Francisco. I'll definitely book the place again the next time I'm in the Bay Area.

A Hidden Gem in South SF!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Nice place a few minutes away from San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

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

Very nice location to stay in San Francisco Bay

  • 5 of 5

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.
