About dan caplan
We love our sunny and eclectic neighborhood!! You will also. We are excited to share the tasty wonders, walks and cultures with our guests...
Why dan caplan chose Mission District
San Francisco's Mission District has to be one of the most amazing neighborhoods....anywhere! You won't find any place like this. Character, soul, art, spirit. There's something very special going on here. And it's real.
What makes this Apartment unique
Are we spoiled by the sunshine? By the amazing food choices just steps away? By the bright and colorful life going on here? You will just have to see for yourself! But we can help point you in some direction, if you like.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great place. Quiet and cozy. Great neighborhood. Pictures don’t do the place justice!
Love this place!
I had a wonderful time in this lovely place in San Francisco. The space is great and I love staying in mission district. The owner was quick in replaying all emails and this is my definitly go to place when visiting San Francisco!
The Perfect Home Away From Home!
Ok, I lied...it's actually way better than my own home, lol!
I always stay in the Mission when I'm in town. I was so happy to have found this oasis that was so close to my friend's place and in the very neighborhood that I loved!
Everything was true to its listing. From the colorful grand "gallery" hallway full of paintings leading into the spacious unit, to the peaceful and charming private garden, everything was perfect!
Dan and his cleaning manager Rubia had everything ready for us when we got there. The plush towels were clean and so soft, the beddings for both the main bedroom and futon (in the living room) were clean and comfortable to sleep on.
It was within walking distance to a lot of restaurants and even has a liquor store/mart on the corner of the street (where we bought a lot of It's-It Ice Cream sammies and water from), so convenient! My friend loved it so much that he's written down this rental info for whenever his parents are visiting in town.
Renting a car is not necessary. We used Uber to go to Trader Joes, the Waterbar at The Embacadero, even Japantown (so cheap, only $10 or so). There's also a bus stop ($2.25 fare) right across the street from the apt on Bryant. We didn't have a problem finding street parking at night, a couple blocks away, no biggie.
Thanks so much Dan and Rubia! You guys are the best! I will definitely stay here again whenever I'm in town.
Great private space
I think the space is perfect for 2 people but also a good space for a child or 2. The outside patio space was awesome and very oasis like and I sat out there every morning with coffee and just enjoyed the air. In renting a car I was worried about finding a parking space in such a busy area, but the farthest I had to go was 2 blocks without having to pay for an overnight garage. It's also great having all the amenities of a fridge, microwave, and kitchen necessities available for the little daily things. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would definitely consider again. This place was a bargain compared to what others are charging in this city.
Warm & Inviting
My husband and I flew out from Michigan to see the Eagles vs 49ers (We won't talk about the game) and stayed for a long weekend. We wanted to see San Francisco and surrounding area since it was the first time for both of us to CA. The apartment was just as described and the owner was very easy to contact and answered all our questions. If we return to this area, I would definitely choose to stay here again. My husband and I decided to walk everywhere to see neighborhoods, but public transportation was available within a few blocks. The apartment was so comfortable to come back to each day after 2 long days of walking. It was just what we needed and it was nice to have a "little home" instead of a hotel.
We had fabulous food at El Matate, Palmyra (Haight St) and the ice cream at Humphrey Slocumbe was insane!! We visited Golden Gate Park, walked out to the ocean, trekked through Land's End. If you're planning on Alcatrez, buy tickets in advance, we were lucky enough to get them but tours were selling out days in advance. Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Chinatown were all very cool.
The little wine cellar (corner of Florida and 22nd St) had amazing wines and the clerk we dealt with was so helpful.
We had an amazing time and are so grateful we found this little slice of heaven.
In a word? Perfect!
Our stay (4 nights) exceeded our expectations. We'd never been to San Francisco or used HomeAway and decided on Mission Garden. From first contact with the owner Dan to check-out everything went perfect. There was room for all four of us (2 adults and 2 kids, 11 and 7 who slept on the futon). Everything was very clean and very well-kept. The outside patio was GREAT! Location was GREAT! In the Mission District you do not feel like a tourist. You get a feel for San Francisco on a more local level. Mission Garden is close to all public transportation. We used BART, Bus, Taxi and even rented a car for a day (38.00 $!) to drive to Monterey Bay (aquarium). Also incredible. And then there was Zorah, the "local manager". THANK YOU ZORAH!!! We had international luggage and a late connecting flight on our last day. Zorah made it possible for us to enjoy our last day in San Francisco! She was 100 % reliable, helped us find a solution to our luggage problem without having to go to the airport first and even called a taxi to pick us up in time for our flight. We were not expecting that and are extremely grateful for the help! Priceless. This property recommended to anyone looking to enjoy San Francisco.
The Mission is an exciting and central location--easy walk to wonderful eclectic spots, easy access to public transpo. We put together a Local Guide with our favorite local spots and city highlights to share with you when you confirm a stay with us.
