Welcome to our cozy, one-bedroom apartment in the historic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in beautiful San Francisco!

You will have our home all to yourself with no additional guests or roommates. Privacy!

We are located right in the center of town, near the corner of the infamous Haight and Ashbury intersection, on the top floor with lots of sunshine and garden views. And when the fog rolls in, so does the cool eucalyptus-scented ocean breeze.

You will be sleeping in our spacious master bedroom which faces east and so the morning sun brightens and warms your main living space, and the afternoon sun warms the kitchen. This classic Edwardian with high ceilings, big bay windows, and built-in ornamental shelving is quintessential San Francisco architecture.

The bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized spring mattress and bed frame, couch, wooden Art Deco designed desk, lamps, stereo, Chinese armoire, drawers, mirrors, plenty of shelving and organizational space, friendly plant life and cozy warm colors.

Have a warm bath in our deep, claw foot bathtub. The apartment features a split bathroom with the tub and sink in one room and the toilet in another.

The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you need to eat in such as cutlery and cookware, fridge, stove and oven, top of the line water filter, coffee bean grinder and filters, toaster oven, etc..

Or go on a foodie adventure! Select from any of the fine neighborhood eateries. Or please feel free to ask and I will recommend my favorite restaurants, cafes, festivals, tourist or local sites---all that the Bay Area and Northern California has to offer.

We are looking for non-smoking, quiet, clean and conscientious guests. Quiet and responsible are key as you will be residing in our home (not some anonymous hotel) and our neighbors are friends and we'd like to keep it that way ;-) This would be ideal for a responsible individual looking for an affordable space in the Haight-Ashbury, or just wanting an extended Haight-Ashbury vacation.

We are literally a stone's throw from Haight Street and one of the most famous intersections on Earth--the Haight-Ashbury! The Haight is a cultural, musical and artistic mecca in the history of San Francisco. The Grateful Dead, among so many other artists, lived in our neighborhood. Today, the neighborhood is full of modern artists and musicians, and is a melting pot of locals and visitors alike from all classes, ethnicities, and all walks of life.

We are located within walking distance to Golden Gate Park and the Panhandle (3-5 minute walk), Cole Valley (5-10 minutes away), the Inner Sunset (9th and Irving) (15-20 min walk via the park), the Western Addition (10 min walk), the Castro (15-20 min walk), Hayes Valley (20 min walk) and the lower Haight (15 min walk), the place to go for SF's best Thai, great Indian, BBQ, beer and more.

We are within walking distance to the California Academy of Science, the Conservatory of Flowers and Strybing Arboretum, the De Young Museum, the Botanical Gardens, the Japanese Tea Garden, Tank Hill, Twin Peaks, several playgrounds for children, and dozens and dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars for food and nightlife.

There are several major food markets which all cater to foodies and vary from around the corner to a 10 minute walk! Whole Foods is a few blocks away, as is Lucky Supermarket and Falletti Food, and the Ashbury Market is right around the corner so you can get everything you need within walking distance.

There is also a weekly Wednesday afternoon Farmers Market during spring, summer and fall across from Whole Foods near the entrance to Golden Gate park. And on Thursday evenings the popular gourmet food trucks park in that same spot for yummy affordable treats. San Francisco is an organic food paradise.

The Haight Street festival is held annually during springtime and it's the busiest day of the year for the neighborhood.

Typically, the Upper Haight is quiet and calm at night, other than a few local bars located on Haight Street or the unexpected party that a neighbor may throw, of which we have no control. This is to be expected in a city full of musicians, artists, youth, creative entrepreneurs, Burners (as in Burning Man), and tourists taking it all in. While we consider the Upper Haight to be a safe neighborhood, there can be petty crime in the area, so do not leave your valuables unattended, or visible in your vehicle, or your bicycle unlocked.

Transportation-wise, our nearby SF MUNI buses will get you virtually anywhere in the city and the MUNI light rail, called the N-Judah, can take you downtown in 15 minutes! You catch the N-Judah at Carl and Cole St. Multiple MUNI bus lines (6, 7, 66, 71, 33, 37, 43) intersect with Haight along Ashbury, Masonic and Clayton. Take a downtown bus or the N-Judah to the Civic Center if you need to catch BART to go to the East Bay or South Bay and the Oakland or San Francisco International Airport. And the N-Judah can take you to the Caltrain depot for trains to the South Bay and toward San Jose.

If you are bicycling, Page St is a bike boulevard and there are bike paths along the Panhandle.

Parking a car in the Haight can be competitive. It's best along the Panhandle or Page St and it's best before commuters arrive home. Keep on eye out for the parking signs which designate when the street cleaners need you to move your vehicle.

In general our apartment is fully furnished. We can also provide towels and linens if you like. We have DSL internet connection and wifi. Sorry, we have no TV but who needs TV when you're on holiday in San Francisco, and there's so much to see and do!!!

Some important notes:

-We live on the top floor and there are no elevators, only a long staircase.

-Closest laundry facilities are 3 short blocks away (5 min walk).

Our no-no's below ;-)


-Shoes are to be left at the door and not worn in the apartment.

-No pets allowed.

-No smoking.

-No candle use or open flame.

Please help keep our home tidy and clean!

Please water our plants and feel free to talk to them ; - )

If this is something that works for you, please email us a little about yourself and your requested rental dates. We prefer guests who stay at least 5 days to few weeks or longer.

Thank you and good luck in your search for home in our beautiful city, San Francisco!

8 Very good

The apartment is nice and spacious with all amenities we needed. It is quite old, but still in good shape and very sunny! Bus stops are only a few steps away and the neighborhood is very vibrant with interesting people and shops. The apartment is in a quiet street and very peaceful, even though it is very close to the main street with constant traffic and people walking around. We had a pleasant stay, thank you Aaron for all your effort and recommendations!

Small apartment perfect location (right in Haight Ashbury, and direct bus to Union Square, subway also not far), with lots of charm, and properly equipped (wifi works perfectly). Aaron and Michelle are ready to give good advice on SF and Diana welcomed us warmly.
