vacation rental description

Be our guest in the private first floor apartment at Mission Manor, an enchanting Edwardian in San Francisco’s lively Mission Dolores. This luxury apartment (sleeps 1 to 3) offers both period details and modern comforts. When you enter the living room, a fruit bowl and tray of cookies awaits you. Kick off your shoes and unwind. Wrap yourself in the plush Turkish cotton spa robe. Check your email using the free Wi-Fi. Pull a good book from the library shelves. Enjoy a classical music CD or a movie from our DVD library.

Exhale. Relax. You're home.

In your bedroom, you'll have the best sleep of your life with a California King memory foam pillow top mattress, 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and down or down alternative pillows. The Italian lounge sofa in the living room also makes up into a comfortable double bed, complete with memory foam mattress topper.

Enjoy breakfast and snacks at your leisure in your private kitchenette, well stocked before your arrival. Choose from a selection of fresh fruits, yogurts, juices, and cereals, along with toast, muffins, croissant, sweet butter, and jams. Brew a cup of coffee or tea. You'll also find Baby Bell Gouda, mixed nuts, and other snacks.

The kitchenette features a full size refrigerator with generous freezer and ice maker, bar sink, full size dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, Brita pitcher, coffee maker and electric kettle. Cupboards are stocked with dishes, glassware, flatware, and utensils.

The European style split bath features a shower and sink in one room and toilet & sink in another. The bath is supplied with large cotton bath towels, hand soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and a hairdryer.

Mission Manor is ideally located in the Mission Dolores, the 'Sunbelt' of San Francisco, in between San Francisco's exciting and colorful Castro District and the friendly Noe Valley neighborhood. With a Walk Score of 95 and a Transit Score of 99, Mission Manor ranks as both Walker’s Paradise and Rider’s Paradise on walkscore.com. You are just steps away from beautiful Dolores Park, Mission Dolores Church, and many of the city’s best restaurants, bars, and nightclubs.

The Mission is also a Foodie’s Paradise! Stroll around the block to discover the fresh fruit bread pudding at Tartine Bakery. Enjoy lunch at Dolores Park Café. For dinner, dine at the famous Delfina restaurant or at Delfina’s charming pizzeria next door. Walk another block to the Valencia Corridor to experience countless fine restaurants and ethnic eateries. En route home, stop for some of the city’s best ice cream at the Bi-Rite Creamery.

All the traditional city attractions are easily accessible from Mission Manor via public transit. Within two or three blocks, you can take a street car, BART, Muni, bus or Zip Car to explore the city and visit well known San Francisco destinations: Union Square, the Ferry Building, Fishermen’s Wharf, AT&T Baseball Park, Moscone Center. Intersect with San Francisco’s historic cable car lines to head over to Nob Hill or Chinatown. Ride a bike or Segway through Golden Gate Park. Wonder at the exhibits at the Academy of Science or cross the esplanade to the DeYoung Museum, where the building itself is also a work of art. Rest for tea in the tranquility of the Japanese Tea Garden next to the museum. You don't need a car at Mission Manor; in fact we advise against it. If you do bring a car, parking garages are available nearby.

traveler reviews for this san francisco apartment rental

our restful stay

Review submitted: March 21, 2014   Date of arrival: March 4, 2014

I came to San Francisco for a specialist surgery with my wife. We stayed at Mission Manor for 9 days while I recovered and then went for a surgery checkup. We were close enough to BART to be able to explore the city just a bit according to my energy levels, which thankfully, were pretty good. We really appreciated Karen's hospitality and attention to details. The place is comfortable and pleasant to be in.

Would love to keep this gem a secret -

Review submitted: January 16, 2014   Date of arrival: January 13, 2014

because everyone will/should want to stay here!

A large conference resulted in full hotels city wide, and a search of vrbo gave me the Mission Manor as a good alternative. The other glowing reviews are spot on - very comfortable accommodations, space that is not common in the city for an extremely reasonable rate, and the snacks and breakfast items offered make this far and away a better choice than a hotel.
Karen is a perfect host, and it was a pleasure to meet her. (Amy also was so helpful in organizing the logistics.) I travel to the city fairly regularly on business - and will check here first for availability. Vastly superior to a hotel room, and as others have noted, the neighborhood is a vibrant and full of good choices for food and other treats.

Thanks Karen, for making me feel so at home!

Beats hotel accommodations by a mile

Review submitted: November 21, 2013   Date of arrival: November 18, 2013

I stayed here for a conference at Moscone. The walk to the BART was short and easy and the convention was only 2 stops away. The "Mission Manor" was terrific. I was charming and very comfortable, from the food and snacks to the comfortable bed and living room. I couldn't have made a better choice. Too bad I was so busy, I would have like to kick back and read one of the may interesting books on the shelves. I will just have to come back.

Even though it is on a somewhat busy street, it was very quiet at night and I slept like a log.

Laura was so welcoming and attentive. Thanks for the first class hospitality.
