Our apartment is sunny & full of art & a well stocked kitchen. Cole Valley is home to many cafes & restaurants as well as central public transportation lines. The historic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood is just blocks away.
Hello, I am a carpenter living in San Francisco with my long-time girlfriend Isis and our housemate Angela. Isis is a painter as well as the manager of a local charcuterie / butcher shop and Angela is the Environmental Fellow with a local philanthropic foundation. We have been living in our apartment for five years. We are planning a year of travel so have decided to open up our home to other travelers. Thanks to our eclectic professions and to the fact that both Isis and Angela are Bay Area natives, we are excited to offer any tips or advice on transportation and other logistics as well as where to go and what to do, especially in the realms of food, art and outdoor experience. (Three of the things that make San Francisco the spectacular city that she is).
Our home is in a bright and sunny Victorian in the neighborhood called Cole Valley, just a couple blocks south of the famed Haight/Ashbury district. It is also close to public transportation (especially the MUNI train N-Judah which runs from downtown all the way to the beach), and to Golden Gate Park. If you have a car, parking is not too troublesome. In fact, the true center of San Francisco is just outside our door. The neighborhood is quiet but convenient with a laundromat just a block away and several cafes and restaurants, groceries and a fabulous Hardware store.
