This lovely apartment is a delight: a bright, clean, stylish, and happy home-away-from-home, nestled right in Cole Valley, a safe, family-friendly, charming neighborhood located at the center of San Francisco. It is only for long term stays of 30+ days (please do not ask for an exception, I am firmly committed to hosting only long term stays of 30+ days). If you‘re a family of 5, please let me know. I am happy to increase the number of guests to 5 if there are young children staying.
This chic and cool studio apartment in a charming Victorian home in Cole Valley merges the best of San Francisco, with classic 19th century architecture on the exterior, and a remodeled, beautiful studio apartment that features a stylish mod design and a cheerful and vibrant color scheme in the interior. (SEE NOTES ON PARKING IN LAST PARAGRAPH BELOW.)
Adjacent to the queen-size canopy bed there is a little nook with sunny window and the absolute cutest twin bed, outfitted with colorful linens, a sweet reading lamp, and charming framed prints and paintings by local artists.
There are three proper beds (one queen bed that sleeps two, and two twin beds-- one in the nook that sleeps one, one that also acts as a sofa/ day-bed). Under the day-bed there is a very comfortable trundle bed that pulls out to reveal a proper twin size mattress. The apartment can sleep a family of 5. If you are traveling with an infant, I also have a co-sleeper crib with sheets.
There is a fully outfitted kitchen with 6 stools and retro-chic tableware, perfect for cocktails. And speaking of cocktails, the neighborhood is lovely if you like great food and cocktails. A close walk to Cole Street, you can feast on gourmet tacos and drinks at local favorite Padrecito, topping it off with caramelized honey, creme fraiche and roasted pineapple sundaes at the Ice Cream Bar, also a fan favorite on Cole Street.
And if you worry you may have over-indulged, you can run (or stroll) it off the next morning with a circuit around nearby Golden Gate Park, featuring miles of gorgeous paths, and amazing museums like the Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Museum. And if you're traveling with kids, there's a playground across the street (Grattan Playground), and an even more deluxe playground a short stroll away in Golden Gate Park.
The apartment has free wifi and a "Smart TV" that connects through the internet (you can play Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime shows and movies, etc. using your own account). It has a nice clean bathroom with a shower, and fully equipped kitchen. I provide all bed linens and blankets, towels, soap, hairdryer, iron, yoga mat—really everything you might need. As for your privacy, it is a ground floor apartment, but the entire home is two flights of stairs above the street, so it's very light, and very private, with the only people passing by being other inhabitants of the house.
I am a relaxed, happy host-- here to help if you need it, and invisible if you prefer to relax without interruption. It is a fun, cheerful, and inspiring home, perfect for a vacation holiday. I love my home, and hope you will, too.
If you have to mix pleasure with business, the apartment is an eight minute walk to UCSF Hospital, and a block and a half away from the MUNI N-Train which takes you straight downtown to work (and to shopping in Union Square and the Embarcadero), and 1 block away from multiple bus lines. If you are working down in Silicon Valley, the tech industry shuttles all pick up within a couple blocks, as do the shuttle buses to UCSF Mission Bay.
In terms of getting to the apartment from the airport, you can take a cab here, a bus, the Super Shuttle (a very inexpensive, great way to get here-- just look up "Super Shuttle" to check fares and schedule a pick-up/ drop-off), or the MUNI train (it's right on the N line-- towards Ocean Beach if you're coming from downtown/ Civic Center; the N-Judah if you're coming from the other direction. Our stop is "Stanyan Street"). Getting here with public transportation is very inexpensive and very easy. You just take BART to the Civic Center stop from the airport, and transfer to the MUNI "N" line, going toward Ocean Beach. Our stop is Stanyan Street (at the intersection of Stanyan and Carl streets).
The apartment is extremely close to multiple MUNI stops (San Francisco's public transportation system), so public transportation is easy, cheap and plentiful. However, if you're driving, please note that while I don't have a parking spot, it's a fairly easy neighborhood to find free parking in. However, while parking is free, it is not unlimited. They ticket every two hours from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, so you need to either move your car by 10 am (not too hard, there are usually spots to be found, and most people start their day by then anyway), or park in a nearby parking lot (Kezar Parking Lot is within a 10 minute walk down the street on 801 Stanyan near Frederick Street, and you can pay to park all day for ~$20-~26 for 24 hours, should you want to leave your car there for the day). There are also some streets nearby (Rivoli street, for example) where you can park round the clock for ~48 hours for free and they don't ticket, but you have to search a bit for those spots as everyone wants them. Always take care not to block anyone's driveway, and to read the street parking signs/ restrictions, so you don't accidentally leave your car on a street where there is a scheduled street cleaning.
The apartment is nestled right in Cole Valley, one of the hidden gems of San Francisco. While centrally located in the heart of the city, just blocks from the entrance to Golden Gate Park and the Children's Playground, it remains a bit of a locals' secret.
Cole Street features small, locally owned shops (with everything you might need and more) and charming restaurants. Just a short walk will bring you to the heart of the neighborhood, where you can feast on gourmet tacos and drinks at my favorite restaurant, Padrecito. If you still have room, you can top it off with a caramelized honey, creme fraiche and roasted pineapple sundae at the Ice Cream Bar, also a favorite on Cole Street.
And if you worry you may have over-indulged, you can run (or stroll) it off the next morning with a circuit around nearby Golden Gate Park, featuring miles of gorgeous paths, and amazing museums like the Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Museum. If you're traveling with kids, there's a playground close by (Grattan Playground), and an even more deluxe playground a short stroll away in Golden Gate Park.
