Great apartment in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed at this apartment several times now and I continue to return time after time. It's in a perfect location very close to the top of Dolores Park and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The apartment has all the conveniences one could need for a stay - kitchen appliances, flatware, utensils, and the basics if you wish to cook. Everything is always very well maintained and always spotless. There's even a lovely the orchid to make it feel more like home. The owners are always reachable even for small questions in case you have them which is a big bonus. I highly recommend this apartment... perfect for 1 to 2 people. Have a great stay!

Back from a Second Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay with Amy and the first time upstairs. We loved the layout and especially the view out towards Noe Valley and Mount Sutro in the morning. Pictures and previous posters accurately describe the location and apartment. Everything went smoothly from initial deposit to final check out.

We stayed for a week and used a clipper card and public transportation to avoid parking hassles. If you know the city this is a great way to see lots of places and not get stressed. The Muni stop at 20th at the top of Dolores Park is just minutes from the apartment.

Just a great way to visit San Francisco. No hassles at all!

Perfect and Charming Cottage-like House

  • 5 of 5
I stayed there with two of my girlfriends when we came to San Francisco for a girls' weekend. The place was adorable, clean, and had everything you could ask for. The bed was very comfortable and coming in and out was so easy. Amy was always very responsive to my emails and easy to book with. The location cannot be beat if you love Dolores Park, Bi-Rite, or Tartine. It is close to the Castro and the host of amazing restaurants around there. It was wonderful to experience "SF-Living" again rather than staying at a hotel in SoMa or the Marina. Would recommend to anyone!

Location! Many people consider this charming flat to be on one of the best blocks in the city. Quiet, tree-lined street with gorgeous homes, yet only 3 blocks from the heart of the Castro or a few minutes walk to the best of the hipster Mission district and the fantastic Dolores Park. Up on a hill, the street has gorgeous SF views of downtown and the Bay Bridge.
