About the property

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.

We were very happy with this location. Rick met us promptly and was helpful. Evan dealt with a few minor issues expediently. Everything we needed was here and the space was wonderful to relax in after a day of exploring. Good restaurants and grocery store nearby!

Very nice place

The apartment is perfect for two colleagues as we were but suits well for a four person family. Very clean and well located. Just a little bit noisy sometimes due to the traffic.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this apartment for a 7 day family vacation. There were four of us and there was plenty of room for all. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated. Just a couple of improvement suggestions...the smaller bedroom could benefit from darker window treatments. If you're sensitive to light and it wakes you up, bring your eye shades. A portable fan would also be great for warmer days, which we had a couple of during our stay, although I'm sure they don't happen often. It is definitely noisy on the weekdays, but that didn't bother us a bit. The location is great and the neighborhood is fun and eclectic. There was an odd odor in the apartment but we got used to it. Maybe it's from the oriental rugs? Just a thought. I would definitely stay here again and hope to visit again soon. Absolutely loved the city!

Fun Haight Apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place to have stayed at. I booked a long weekend, loved the fact it was close to the Castro district, and down the street to many eateries and interesting shops. The bus stop, right outside the front door, has an easy access to upper Haight street, and the Castro to the south. Enjoyed the Haight ambience. Will head back next time I'm in San Francisco.

Making San Francisco your home town

  • 5 of 5

Instead of spending a week in an (expensive) hotel a co-worker and I decided to look for a home rental and experience San Francisco as 'home owner' living the real SF way. A very nice apartment to stay. No need for a car to get around. You can get from the airport to the apartment for only $2 using public transportation (bus 292 and 71/6 from the top of my head)! The bus stops right in front of the apartment and drives you straight to Market Street, Bay Area or other location in SF. As mentioned in the other reviews, you are living -in- the city so obviously there is traffic outside that you can hear but that didn't bother me a bit - I actually liked it! There are small shops and restaurants close by to get your daily coffee and breakfast items but it is just as easy to hop on the bus downtown if you want to shop around. Overall we had a great time and I will keep the apartment on my list for a next visit if we are in the area! Thanks Evan!

Fabulous Place to Stay in S.F.!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific find! Owner is friendly and accomodating. Apartment is charming and comfortable. It was very clean (and I'm very picky!) and has everything you could possibly need. The king bed was amazingly comfortable. Slept better there than at home! It was so nice to have a place to relax and spread out rather than being cooped up in a hotel room. Nice to be able to have breakfast and easy meals. It was an extremely convenient location for us since our son lives 2 1/2 blocks away. Lots of fun restaurants and shops within a short walk of the apartment in the Haight. The Grind is a great breakfast place. They serve other meals as well, but we only went for breakfast. There is a corner store right across the street, but walk the extra distance (3 blocks) and go to Faletti's at the corner of Broderick and Oak. Wonderful gourmet food market. Buena Vista Park is close and beautiful. Alamo Park is a little further, but beautiful as well. Golden Gate Park is also within walking distance. Don't miss it! It was a beautiful day and there were tons of families and couples there enjoying the day. A real taste of S.F.! There are bus stops on every corner if you need them. We had an easy bus ride to BART to SFO, get on the bus at the corner, get off at BART station and off we went. We were through security within 1 1/2 hours from leaving the apartment. Ok, it is noisy. We loved it! You're in the city for pete's sake! That's why you're there! If you want quiet, go to the country. If it bothers you sleeping (it didn't bother us) take earplugs! If you haven't been to S.F. before, be prepared for every type of weather all in the same day; warm, sun, rain, cold, wind. We will definitely be staying here again.
