Property Details

Updated: May 24, 2015
1 bedroom, 1 bath sleeps 2

Our garden unit was completely remodeled in the summer of 2011. It has a full kitchen with a five burner gas Bosch cook-top and combination microwave, convection, vent just above the cook-top. The refrigerator/freezer has a smaller profile to accommodate kitchen layout but is more than you’ll need for a few days or even a month. The kitchen is fully stocked with a full set of Calphalon stainless pans, a full set of knives and all the dishes and glasses you’d need to host a small dinner party in the garden on your visit.

The living room has a brand new 32 inch flat screened HDTV with a full stereo and DVD player. The TV has premium Comcast service including Starz if curling up on the couch and watching a movie is your way of relaxing after a hectic day.

The bedroom has a queen bed and the closet is large enough to accommodate a few wardrobes. The bedding will be changed weekly as part of the weekly cleaning fee if you are staying longer than one week.

The bathroom has a beautiful glass tile shower and granite counter tops. Towels will be laundered at the end of the week, but fresh towels can be traded out during the week if desired.

In the kitchen area, opposite the work area, is a wall mounted desk with a wireless router and secure WIFI network just for the unit. You can work late at night or just stay in touch while you are traveling. There is no printer in the unit, but if you need access to a fax machine or a printer that can be arranged with the owner as she has a home office on the property.

This unit has been designed to be the ideal home away from home for the frequent business traveler to SF, but it is also great for the vacationing tourist.

One of the things that makes this property ideal is the location. We are on Bush Street between Baker and Broderick streets. It is extremely easy to get downtown, out to the ocean or to any of the major fun places in SF via public transportation or you can park on the street with a temporary parking permit. Two blocks to the north is California Street and the #1 MUNI line runs E/W and three blocks to the south is Geary Blvd and the #38 MUNI line runs E/W there too. They connect to main lines running all over the city and they both have express or limited lines that run during high commute times and make getting downtown very quick.

It is also located within walking distance to Fillmore and Sacramento Streets. Both with an ample variety of shopping, restaurants, movie theaters and live music venues like the historic Fillmore. There are also beautiful walks you can take from the unit through the mansions of Pacific Heights into the woods of the Presidio and out to the Golden Gate bridge. Just ask and we’ll map it out for you.

The garden is lovely and very protected between the main building and the small Victorian cottage on the back of the property. It is ideal for enjoying your coffee in the morning during the warmer months.

We love pets, but do have strict rules about use of the garden so that it is always enjoyable and lush for everyone.

We live on the property and can be available to assist you in stocking the fridge prior to your stay so that you can 'hit the ground running' or in understanding the logistics for getting around town.

Not so charming after-all

  • 2 of 5
This was our first time using VRBO and we were very disappointed with this choice. It could be a charming place but first you have to get rid of the terrible musty smell you notice the instant you walk in the place. Not only does the air have a musty smell but the furniture also. We could not sit on the warn out sofa because of the musty odor. We had to go out and buy pillows for the bed because the pillows provided were so thin, it was like no pillow at all. BTW, we did not leave those pillows behind for the next guest either. This is not a place I would go back to.

Owner's Response: I am sorry, did you bring any of this to my attention when you were staying here? No.

There are multiple pillows in the unit two that were purchased in the last four months. I would have gladly purchased new pillows for you if you'd asked.

The unit is musty when it has been closed up for a bit, it is on the garden level and is generally closed up when guests are not there created a musty smell. It dissipates within a few minutes once the unit is occupied, but again did you bring this to my attention and ask me to address it? There are things I could have done to make you more comfortable, but did you ask me about any of this? No.

Super unfair to grip without ever bringing any of these issues up when you were here.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for 9 days in October. Place was exactly as advertised. Well outfitted and clean (except dust bunnies under bed, just like being home).
Two blocks to several bus routes, going all directions, to everywhere you'd want to go.
Trader Joes grocery and wines was 4 blocks, but downhill with bags in hand.
Nice to have a fridge, microwave, HD cable and wifi.
Never saw Cecelia, but no need to as everything good.

Wonderful little place

  • 5 of 5
Loved this little place. It was perfect for us.

Close to everything! We took the bus when we went to Union Square, Fisherman's wharf and Alcatraz. But most of the time we walked. Many restaurants and shops close by and great parks as well. The apartment was clean and spacious for two. We didn't cook dinner but there is a great kitchen if you want to.

Would recommend this apartment if you going to San Francisco. I never stay at hotels anymore since I found Homeaway.

My fiance and I stayed here for the 4 days before our wedding. It was exactly as advertised: a lovely apartment, with a beautiful garden and a great kitchen. Great location, easy access to buses and perfect for a small group having drinks before dinner.

We loved staying in this cozy apartment during our recent trip to San Francisco. It's charming, comfortable and quiet. It's located in a nice neighborhood with great restaurants/coffee shops and close to many convenient bus routes. The kitchen is well appointed and perfect for cooking meals when we didn't feel like going out. The bed is uber comfortable. The small outdoor courtyard is private and lovely. The logistics for arrival and departure were well communicated and went very smoothly. I highly recommend this apartment for a couple who is looking for the cozy comforts of home while visiting San Francisco.
