Everything You Could Need

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little basement apartment to serve as your home base while visiting the city. Perfect location: a 5 minute walk to the BART, grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, etc. Owners were friendly and made themselves available to help if needed. Wish we had gotten to hang out with the dog though!

A great apartment conveniently located a short walk from the Bart

  • 4 of 5

It was a very comfortable and spacious apartment. The only downside was that the car had to be parked a few blocks from the house. But otherwise, It's a lovely location for a quiet getaway in San Francisco

Truly a Home Away!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights here while visiting with friends, touring and catching my daughter's dance performance in the city. Leslie and Todd are generous hosts and the apartment is cozy, quiet and very well appointed. Public transportation is easy from this location. The Canyon Market around the corner was a frequent destination. Whenever I return to San Francisco this will be the first place I consider. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Delighful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience. Although the apartment was called a studio, it was very spacious, with a charming garden. It was clean, well-decorated, well-maintained, with lots of closet and storage space. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked, and the shower worked well. There were lots of towels, and the deep tub was a bonus. The charming neighborhood of Glen Park, with several good restaurants (Le Petite Laurant was excellent, as were several of the breakfast places) is a short walk away. We also enjoyed a walk to scenic Glen Canyon Park. The only concern, if you have a car, is that parking is always a challenge in San Francisco, and this street, a dead-end, was difficult to navigate. However, there was parking on adjacent streets, even when we returned late in the evening. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We enthusiastically recommend this property, and would stay there again.

Excellent small apt. for a San Fransisco stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay in the Glen Park neighborhood of SF. It was an easy ride by bus into downtown and made exploring the inner city quite easy. The apt. is charming and comfortable and our hosts could not have been more helpful. We loved it and will definitely try and stay here again on any subsequent visits to the area
