Cozy and small private 1 bdr garden apt. 2 blocks away from Valencia St shopping and dining in the heart of the Mission District, 1 block from Bart yet secluded from the busy city life. A large patio, outdoor seating. Outdoor heat lamp and small BBQ. Comfortably fits 2 but can 4 .
Vibrant Mission District locale in a private accommodation. From a private street level entrance through outdoor hallway leading to your own private fenced garden apartment secluded from the hustle and bustle of city life where you will find a large patio, outdoor seating, heat lamp , small BBQ and table just outside door to garden apartment. In addition, there is a large doggie door and with enclosed patio as a well behaved dog will be considered upon prior approval. I would like to be upfront and honest with new guests. The garden apt is perfect for 1-2 people. I have had 3-4 people stay and those who had no problem with the space where usually close friends or a family with young kids and all loved to use the outdoor space and/or where out traveling around the city( i.e not spending a lot of time indoors) This is not a large 1 bedroom apt. On the other hand each room has its own tv with cable and streaming tv shows/movies so there is entertainment indoors.

In return we want our guests to know that as part of our family we have two large dogs on the property in a separate unit and taken out in the backyard ( not for guests) always on leash( separated from garden apartment patio by a fence ) twice daily and as such barking may occur during those times. No parking available. Only Street parking which is permit parking and metered parking. There is a safe public garage 3 blocks away at 21st Bartlett street. However, walking, public transportation and uber/taxis are very convenient as well as car share locations within 2 blocks. And finally this is a family owned apartment building owned and lived in since the early 1960's by multi generations and as such it is a home much loved with many memories that we are happy to share with our guests.
No smoking of any kind. Quiet time 10pm until 8am on weekdays and 10:30pm until 9am on weekends as we have families with young children nearby.
I am one of the rare native San franciscans. Grew up in the Mission District and the 1913 art deco edwardian 4 unit building has been in the family and occupied by family since my grandparents from Mexico bought it in the early 1960's. This is a family home as is the garden which is one of the larger gardens in SF and produces wonderful fruit. My husband and I own two dogs and this is a dog friendly place but if you don't like dogs (or an occasional bark) then this probably is not the perfect place for you. SF is my home and every street has a memory growing up here . I love to share my knowledge of the city and the surrounding areas whenever I can. We love the outdoors and there are great hikes in the city, beach and in nearby parks as well as national parks such as Yosemite about a 6 hr drive from SF. I own a Tennessee walking horse boarded about an hour away and can provide info on good places to ride. I traveled a lot in my 20's throughout Europe to visit family and friends as my mum is a british national and I have british citizenship as well. I am very familiar with all type of accommodations in Europe and I try to provide some of what I have learned traveling to hosting in SF one of the most european cities in America besides New Orleans.
