Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
This sophisticated apartment is situated in the middle of one of the most exciting areas in the city. Within walking distance are the Castro district, the Lower Haight neighborhood, the Haight Ashbury, and Hayes Valley. Public transportation directly outside the door connects you to the entire city.
Have the convenience of buses, Muni Light Rail vehicles, and Bay Area Rapid Transit to easily get to the new Baseball Park, Cole Valley, Upper Fillmore, Union Square, cable cars, the Embarcadero, North Beach, and dozens of other interesting neighborhoods on both sides of the bay.
The apartment is two stories above the corner of Haight Street and Divisadero Street, in a six-unit Victorian building. It's a corner apartment with a southwest exposure, and is delightfully bright and sunny. Please note that this is a busy corner and some traffic noise can be heard in the apartment.
The living room has 12-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, a decorative Victorian fireplace surround, period details, and some contemporary touches. Furnished casually with leather modular furniture, oriental rugs, color, and contemporary art, it's a comfortable and interesting place to come home to.
The kitchen is well equipped, and has a range with grill, microwave, toaster, a dishwasher, disposal, and cool urban-sized fridge. A generous pass-through from the kitchen helps keep the cook connected to the living dining area.
One bedroom has a king-size bed in the corner bay window, Japanese tansu, a Chinese cabinet, and other Asian art. The other bedroom has a bay window, and is nicely furnished with a queen-size bed. Deep brown walls set off some striking paintings.
The bathroom has a tub, shower, and double sinks. The bathroom's striped walls and eclectic décor, together with the morning sun make it a delight. You'll find plenty of towels in the carved Chinese kitchen-style cabinet.
The street entry is behind a secure outer gate, which leads to the doors to the stairs. Very close by are stores and services, public transit as well as Buena Vista Park and Golden Gate Park.
A private garage with automatic opener is available in the building. Drive in, close the door and enter the apartment via the back of the building
Come and stay in a real San Francisco neighborhood, and spend your vacation living like the locals.

Designer Apartment Near the Castro and Haight
The fold away bed in the second bedroom has been replaced with a proper bed. The apartment felt secure and safe, and the neighbour hood seemd okay. Loads to do on Haight Street and Buena Vista Park was only a few minutes walk away.
Not so good points: the laundry is in the basement of the building and is coin operated. The roller blinds on the windows are worn out. The property is on a busy intersectionand there was quite a bit of traffic noise. The apartment wasn't spotlessly clean, the white leather suite is a bit grey and worn out. It needs it a bit of TLC to bring the standard up, maybe some heavy drapes to help with the noise.
Overall our experience was okay. The owner was very helpful with information about the area and he also lives in the apartment when there are no guests.
Apartment in the Haight
The apartment is close to public transport ( the bus stops right outside and the F line and the light rail are not far away) and is quite well equipped and secure. There are a number of shops nearby. It is as described.
On the downside, the apartment is very noisy (despite some double glazing) and this was not made clear in the description.
Heating is minimal (the fireplace is not working) although it did not feel cold, probably because of its southerly aspect. There is no air conditioning, but I cannot say if this would be a problem in summer.
The apartment is quite small, and quite cluttered. Less clutter would make it seem larger.
The second bed is a sofa bed and is very uncomfortable.
The apartment was not very clean and not easy to clean because of the loose rugs in the kitchen bathroom passage and living room.
Overall, we were disappointed with the noise and cleanliness of the apartment, but pleased with the facilities and proximity to transport.
