Charming as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay and was not disappointed as this Garden Apartment was just as it was advertised. Nice location in a quiet neighborhood just north of beautiful Golden Gate Park. Walking distance to coffee shops and restaurants and public transit. It satisfied my needs to be in the Golden Gate area and the owner was more than helpful if you had any questions or needs. Enjoyed my stay!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the apartment. It was bright, clean and cozy. Our first night there Sue introduced herself and chatted with us a little in the courtyard, which we loved. Parking was a bit of a challenge though. However, If I could move into this apartment tomorrow, I would!!!!! Loved it

Perfect spot to crash in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights for a weekend trip to San Francisco. First off the apartment is so nice and efficient. Very clean and the bed was comfortable. Since we were on the bottom floor, at first we were little concerned about noise. But every night was so quiet. We easily found street parking every day and when we went to the city or Pier we used Uber. We never paid more than $8 or $9 for the 2 of us to take Uber Pool. We found that to be the best option for us to get to the tourist zone. The Safeway grocery is about one mile away. We even walked there to get some waters and snacks. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. We just wish we could of stayed longer! Thanks for the lovely stay!

Downtown San Fran neighborhood living!

  • 4 of 5

The Garden apt was clean, well thought out, easy to get to. A quick walk to coffee shops, restaurants and neighborhood market. The perfect place for a neighborhood experience. It is a bit far from the wharf. A 20-25 min uber ride, but this was not an issue for us. The apartment is on the bottom floor and you can hear all the movement above, again not an issue as the people above were gone for all but 1 night we were there and they were in bed early the night we shared the building. We would stay again without second thought!

Lovely 1-bedroom apartment, had a great time

  • 5 of 5

This place is great and exactly as advertised. The neighborhood is very quiet and felt safe, and it's very close (~ 60 seconds walk) from a major bus line and the golden gate park, which is amazing. The apartment size is perfect for a couple on a week's vacation. The owner also has a big binder of recommendations for things to see and places to eat, including takeout menus! Superb!

We are located 1/2 block from Golden Gate Park with its many attractions from museums to the buffalo pen, a fly fishing practice area and archery range. You can paddle boat on Stowe Lake or enjoy the quiet of the Japanese Tea Garden and the Botanical Garden, all within walking distance.

In the opposite direction are Balboa and Upper Clement Streets where you can find any variety of ethnic restaurant, two movie theatres, shops, spas, local small and large grocery stores, laundries and banks.

Continuing from there you will run into the Presidio with its museums, golf course, beaches and many other attractions.

It is a short drive over the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marin Headlands, with its many hiking trails. There are several lookout points and if you wish you can drive 16 miles north to the redwoods of the Muir Woods.

From the house it is an easy walk to several MUNI buses including the 5 Fulton, 1 California, and the 37 Geary Limited that go downtown or by transfer to anywhere in the city. Bus transfers are good for 4 hours, so be sure to ask for one.

Owners are happy to talk with you about other attractions and places not to miss in San Francisco and there are guides and maps in the apartment for your perusal.

You will be in a good location to explore the city and return to a peaceful environment.
