  • Brenda's place is perfect for solo travelers. She provides really great recommendations for local food and things to do and was incredibly accommodating with check in for my early AM flight. This was my first time in SF and I have to say, Brenda's neighborhood was my favorite out of every place I went to in the city. Kitchen Story, a great brunch spot, is just across the street. The famous Tartine Bakery (get the Morning Bun, its incredible) and Mision Dolores Park are just a few blocks away. Plus, one of the best hikes and views of the city at Corona Heights Park is practically outside your door step. Thank you again for everything, Brenda!

  • perfect location in the middle of castro and mission district, all main attraction walkable! the apartment is very cozy and clean! brenda is a wonderfull host, easy communication, perfectly organized.

  • The location was perfect, very close to the Mission and Delores Park, and the room was just right for me. Brenda was a great host; very hospitable and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to a single traveler.

  • Brenda and her beautiful house were exactly what I was looking for during my stay in San Francisco. The place was lovely, clean, cozy and perfectly located for jetting around the city. Brenda and her roommate (and adorable animals) were very accommodating, respective and full of suggestions for places to see, restaurants, coffee shops etc. I will absolutely be staying here again, highly recommend!

  • What a fantastic stay. Brenda's place certainly is 'Perfectly Located' with everything I needed within easy travelling distance. Brenda herself was very welcoming and made me feel more like a friend than a paying guest. She leads a busy lifestyle, but was always there when I had any questions, and recommended many fantastic restaurants and places to visit. As for the room, it is a perfect size for a solo traveler - the bed has a very comfortable mattress, which was perfect after a long flight, and the desk in the room is a good size, with enough space to work if you need it. The rest of the apartment is nicely decorated, with a light and airy feel throughout. I also had the opportunity to meet some of Brenda's friends and family and had some very interesting conversations with the group - thanks for that Brenda!

  • Brenda is such a great host. All the time I felt very welcome and comfortable. Brenda is uncomplicated and helpful. She gave my many informations about the city and ideas what to do during my stay. She tried really hard, for a unforgettable stay in SanFrancisco. The guest room is small, but arranged with love. Castro is a nice and safe neighborhood and close to the tourist-hotspots. I can absolutely recommend Brenda. Thank you for the great time!

  • Brenda is a great host very helpful and welcoming with two adorable pets. The house is very clean and quiet. The room is small but perfect for one person and very well decorated. It was easy to visit San Francisco with public transportations near the house. Thank you brenda for this great Airbnb experience!

  • I had a really positive stay at Brenda's. She is nice and accommodating. We had a small talk one afternoon and it just felt like she is a friend instead a host. Also can I just say boo is the sweetest dog ever!! The room is very small but you got everything you need for a single traveller. The room is well decorated and I feel a sense of culture over there. It's very easy to get around there and tons of cafes and restaurants (two of the really good ones I tried is right across the street: Eiji and kitchen story). Overall, a very pleasant stay!

    Our complete description follows this city generated notice: SAN FRANCISCO SHORT-TERM RESIDENTIAL RENTAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: STR-920. Possession of a San Francisco Short-Term Rental Registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire, or other Code violations. THIS BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT was once a corner store. It has been tastefully remodeled to make a very comfortable living space. It consists of one very large room with a sleeping area sectioned off by curtains. It also has an attractive bathroom and a closet. There are areas for sleeping, dining, cooking, working and relaxing. The kitchenette has a fridge, two burners, a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and filtered water on tap, as well as all the kitchenware and tableware you may need. The bed has a very comfortable queen size mattress. It's all quite romantic, but you can also sleep an additional two people on the comfortable fold down sofa. You'll have the use of wireless high speed cable internet and widescreen dish TV and dvd player. The apartment is completely separate from our living space so you'll have it all to yourself. It has a grand and gracious yet completely cozy feel. We like to host visitors and we'll be happy to give you information and tips on request. You'll love our neighborhood where you'll find some of the city's sunniest weather, best affordable restaurants, great views and easy parking. Street parking is safe and generally available either right outside or within a block. The house is on a quiet residential street two blocks from Bernal Hill Park, which has spectacular views of the city and The Bay. Our electricity comes from solar panels on the roof! Everything you need is a short walk away on Cortland Street including quality, interesting and affordable restaurants, cafes, bars, groceries, shops, services, a bakery, a bookstore, a library, even an art gallery! There's also a farmer's market nearby on Saturdays, and two lovely parks. We love our neighborhood which is so friendly and livable! Transportation to Downtown (about 3.5 miles to Civic Center) or any of the San Francisco attractions is easy with frequent buses. Two minutes from the front door you can catch a MUNI bus to the nearby BART (underground) station. Or take a walk over Bernal Hill to BART and the Mission District and see some amazing views of the city and the Bay. Freeway access is nearby and easy.
    Bernal Heights is a very popular neighborhood. It's interesting, safe, convenient, beautiful, quiet. The best place to live in SF!
  • Nic was very friendly and accomodating, and the studio was clean and quiet in a very lovely neighborhood. Great location and very comfortable, definitely recommended for a stay in SF.

  • Mike was super friendly, easy to communicate with and made the whole process very simple. The studio is huge! It's very clean, warm, and comfortable. We would recommend this place to anyone needing accommodations in SF at a very reasonable price!

  • A lovely apartment - it really is as nice as it looks in the pictures - in a great part of SF. We enjoyed our stay here enormously. Mike was also a helpful and friendly host. Nearby Cortland Ave (walk down the hill and take the first right) has shops; a bus runs along Mission St (at the end of Cortland) into the city centre for $2. Don't miss the fantastic Loving Hut (stupid name, admittedly), which does amazing vegan Chinese food on Stockton Street in Chinatown. They also do gluten free. Well worth a visit even if you're an omnivore.

  • The place was great. Good communication from the hosts. Nice quiet neighborhood within walking distance of bars and restauarants.

  • Our stay at Mike and Nic's apartment was fantastic. Mike and Nic did everything they could to ensure that we were comfortable and had all we needed. Getting around the city was very simple from the apartment and Nic was very helpful in explaining all of the transport and where things were that we should check out. The suburb the apartment is located in is great, Bernal Heights has a lot to offer any visitor to San Francisco and we were very glad we were lucky enough to be staying in such a nice area. I would highly recommend Mike and Nic's place to anyone coming to San Francisco.

  • Mike & Nic seem to be great people! Their place was cozy and very good. It wasn't a fancy house, but the room was what we needed to rest and stay, perfect for small groups.

  • Wir haben den Aufenthalt im Appartement von Nik und Mike sehr genossen. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und das Haus hat eine sehr gute Lage, ruhig, nicht weit zum Zentrum (downtown) zu fahren, es gibt Supermärkte und viele Gaststätten in der Nähe. Es gab ein paar kleine leckere kulinarische Willkommensgrüße. Wir haben die Beiden erst bei unserem zweiten Aufenhalt kennengelernt und erlebten Sie als sehr freundlich, unaufdringlich und charmant. Einziger (kleiner) Kritikpunkt wäre vielleicht die Kücheneinrichtung, die allenfalls zum Aufwärmen von Fertiggerichten geeignet ist, aber nicht zum richtigen Kochen (was wir eigentlich wollten). Mit etwas Mühe gelang es uns immerhin Nudeln mit Sauce herzustellen, (aber vielleicht war da unser Anspruch zu hoch). Trotzdem volle Punktzahl, weil ansonsten unbedingt weiterzuempfehlen, wenn man sich mit damit arrangiert! Ich würde selbst auch wieder einen Aufenthalt dort buchen.

  • We totally enjoyed our stay here. The studio was very quaint and elegant. The neighborhood was very unique with so many wonderful small business and shops on Cortland. And who knew that we would have some of the best views of San Francisco from Mount Burnel just a few blocks from the apartment! This was just a very unique way to experience the city! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to get steeped in the experience of what the city is really all about.

    One bedroom sanctuary with a beautiful garden view and cozy fireplace. Comes with it's own entrance just steps from bus lines, train and all that Haight Street has to offer. Complete privacy with a separate bedroom, bathroom, and breakfast bar.
    If you want to be within walking distance to Golden Gate Park, Haight St, Buena Vista Park, and Cole Valley, this is the spot. Full size bed in the bedroom with 400 thread count sheets and a pull-out twin in the living room. Just installed fireplace and large screen tv makes hanging out fun in the comfortable living room. Bathroom has a shower within the tub and white fluffy towels.
    You will hear from many that this is the best neighborhood in SF. I chose this area for the many Victorian homes, the ease of mass transit, the walkability, and the abundance of parks,restaurants, and nightlife nearby. As a recent transplant to this area I can tell you that the stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs are great here. I forget I have a car most of the time! Street parking is easy except for Wednesday 8-10 due to street cleaning.
  • Sara's communication with us about our stay was great and much appreciated. Although not home when we arrived, her instructions were clear and easy and we were looking forward to checking out our digs for the next few days. Her Garden retreat is as pictured and was such a lovely place to stay - so close to everything we needed to see. Sara had a complete folder with recommendations for eating etc very organised.

  • Loved Sara's place just north of Haight. It was exactly as described with a larger bedroom than I'd expected with plenty of room for us and our 2 year old. Light and airy but also super cosy with a gorgeous fire. Parking was really easy and we found on-street spots right outside on both sides of the street (for street cleaning day). The neighbourhood was great - not sure I'd spend too long on Haight itself but really near Golden Gate Park and with some nice neighbourhood restaurants (we liked Zazie for breakfast and Sparrow for lunch). Easy hop into town on the 71 bus, and you can even switch route half way to the historic trolley buses. Very much appreciated Sara's help with questions in advance, and we both particularly enjoyed the nicely stocked fridge as we spent the first night enjoying a beer in front of the (very warm and cosy) fire. Lovely spot to stay that opened up a whole new neighbourhood to us.

  • Sara's home is charming, and she is a wonderful host! There is a private entrance, so you don't feel like you are encroaching on her space. The queen bed and twin pull out are both very comfortable. The utilities, fire, and wifi all worked great. You might see her dog Boo playing in the backyard - she is very friendly so don't forget to say hi!

  • This was my first Airbnb experience. I loved Sara's home away from home. It is just like the photo's. Very clean, comfortable and so relaxing. Sara is a wonderful host with all the little personal touches, like milk, orange juice, and (my favourite) a chocolate. Quality linens are provided. Even had a hair straightener ! Access to a washing machine and dryer was very much appreciated. Public transport is abundant from Haight Ashbury to downtown.

  • We loved this adorable place! Sara's decorating was beautiful and we had a wonderful time. It felt so cozy and tucked away from the street. We would definitely stay again!

  • We loved San Francisco and we think that Sara's place had a lot to do with that. Great location, in a nice residential neighbourhood two blocks away from vibrant Haight St. where you can find bars and restaurants (the Thai restaurant is great!), coffee shops and very interesting shopping ideas. It is also very close to the beautiful Golden Gate Park, great if you have children. There you can rent bicycles, and we think that is the best way to get to know The City. The apartment is very comfortable and quiet. The view to the garden and the sweet smell of flowers make a great difference. If you have a car you can park it right outside easily. We saw Sara very briefly but she was always very friendly and gave us some good tips about the town. And she also has a great selection of books about San Francisco! We definitely recommend this place.

  • What a beautiful secret garden and quiet, cozy living room with tasteful furniture! My friend and I shared the one bed room space, there is a comfortable sleeping sofa. It's very spacious and soft carpeted floor to relax and work. Fire place and lush green reminds me a country living even it's in the 15minuite bus to the down town. Also bus stop is only one block way with down hill.

  • Sara was the ultimate host! The space is gorgeous and the perfect location for exploring San Francisco’s outer suburbs. We loved our stay here and will definitely be back. Thanks again Sara

    Private entry, sidewalk-level suite of living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath with artful touches in 1911 Edwardian. Close to beaches, GGate Park, GGate Bridge, groceries, cafes, restaurants on city-wide trolly line for memorable vacation/business/retreat. Easy drive to Marin.
    The private sidewalk level suite, is clean and comfortable with original windows and doors providing natural light and fresh air. It's San Francisco living so you can be sure to hear the sounds of a trolley passing by and footsteps from people in the flat above. It’s real life in the City! SF STR permit number (4 zeroes) 949
    We live in a friendly neighborhood with cafes and restaurants and world-class museums, situated perfectly to explore San Francisco’s extraordinary natural beauty. Just step out the yellow door and take a short walk on the “neighborhood path” to Baker Beach. A little bit further in any direction will lead you right to the Golden Gate Bridge, Land's End and Ocean Beach. On your journeys spend time at the Legion of Honor Museum in Lincoln Park and the DeYoung Museum and the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. Afterward head over to the Arboretum for a picnic lunch next to its its lakes and gardens. If you prefer to sidewalk explore, it's fun to walk down Clement Street from 25th Avenue to Arguello (1st Avenue) stopping in at Green Apple Books with its extraordinary offering of new and used, all sorts of pubs and Chinese restaurants (SF’s little Chinatown.) Live like a local and take the California 1 electric trolley - aka the unofficial tour bus - the full 7 miles across the city to the Ferry Building (about a 2 hour walk.) Jump on and off to meander through the City’s distinctly different neighborhoods - Fillmore District, Polk Gulch, North Beach - each makes San Francisco such a great place to visit and live. If you are looking for a movie and dinner, there’s Pizetta 211 and the Four Star Theater just around the corner, two neighborhood not so secret gems. There's something for everyone.
  • My host tried to make me feel welcome but I'm afraid that I have to give the experience a bad review. I did not understand from the listing that it was a basement apartment (which meant lots of sounds from the floor above, spiders above the bed & kitchen garbage, a long dark hallway in spite of the one light, that one had to go through to get to the apartment.) The key to the street door was left on a leather tongue attached to the inside of the mailbox. Anyone casing the place with so much traffic going in & out could see the set up. The host told me I could remove the "public" key during my stay. But then I discovered that the door to the apartment had no outside lock so I could not lock it when I left. There was a bolt for locking it from the inside. Plus a few feet away was a door to their enclosed back yard garden which was kept open. So I did not feel safe as a single woman in urban America & could not believe anyone would have a set up like that. The apartment itself was tastefully done and fun. The few problems (cleaning people having left no toilet paper & very dead flowers; sink plug that disconnected the first time I used it; no can opener when I went to cook my dinner in a well set up kitchen) were all taken care of immediately. And I was patient & understanding with each of these things. I knew they were new at this and discovering how to work out the kinks. But the first time I had a complaint, that I couldn't leave my suitcase for a couple of hours after check out because I had a late flight out, I received a rude & unprofessional text accusing me of being a problem. We got through that with a couple back & froths, but it was disturbing to my day. And then on leaving there was a very upsetting confrontation. I saw they were letting the next guests put their suitcases in the garage! I confronted them calmly with the question of what was their problem with me. Instead of explaining the reason they were making an exception for this couple, they aggressively tried to get me to leave. I said they were being "nasty" and left very upset. So it was not a good experience for my first airbnb.

  • This was an amazing location and like having our own apartment to ourselves. Dennis was super accommodating, especially since we were delayed do to flight issues.

  • Clean, cozy flat in a fantastic location. Experience the real San Francisco!

  • This is a beautiful and fantastic place. Very clean og stylish and lots of possibilities to relax after sightseeing i San Francisco. I give my best recommendations.

  • This property is a must stay!! We loved our visit to SF and this space was a huge reason why! It's the perfect location! Loved it here! Can't wait to stay again!

  • Great place in a quieter neighborhood! If your an active person, it’s in the perfect location. You can walk to the beach and many parks. The place had every amenity needed with very thoughtful touches. Will be staying here again if we every make it back to San Fran!

  • Loved the heated mattress and the lovely decorated place! Great grocery shop and pizza on the other side of the street :-) Hope to come back there!

  • The place was really lovely and quaint. Felt very homey and had many touches around the place.

    Очень красивая и наполненная произведениями искусства квартира. Находится в прекрасном районе - тихом и спокойном. Рядом множество классных ресторанчиков - lolinda, Chez Maman, Pera, Plow и другие. Всегда есть бесплатные парковочные места на улице. Gae и ее муж Mel были очень гостеприимны и приятны в общении. Нужно учитывать, что в этих апартаментах общий вход и общий холл с хозяевами дома. Проход в ванну также осуществляется через общий коридор. Если вам нужна полная приватность, то этот вариант может вам не подойти.
    Patrick was a terrific host. The room and house were exactly as described and seen in the pictures - beautiful! Patrick helped us around San Francisco by giving us guides and suggestions on where to eat around the area. He also provided us with snacks, coffee and coupons such as discounts on bike rentals. Overall, he was a great host and it was a great stay and a beautiful city. We will recommend him to anyone looking to stay in San Fran!
    We absolutely loved Jeffrey and mike's place! It's a beautiful room and the bathroom is gorgeous, just like the photos! Jeffrey was a great host, very nice and friendly. He helped us with some packages that were delivery and was always avaiable to anything we needed. The location is amazing! Pacific Heighs is not close to the main turistic areas (not far either) and very charming! There are a lot of restaurants, shops, cafes just few steps from the apto. We highly recommend this place!
