SF Mission Roof Deck Retreat
Great Sunny Location, Close To Food, Shopping, Downtown And Public Tranport
Located in one of the best cities in the world, in the sunniest and most vibrant neighborhood in San Francisco. The Mission District is compared with Greenwich Village: e …
We rented this property while in town for a wedding. 4 adults and 1 child. We had other family rent houses in the same neighborhood but this was the place we all would gather. It was the cleanest and most comfortable of all of them! The owner has put together two binders with property and local information on restaurants, delis, etc. This is a great place, nice hardwood floors, quirky art, bright colors, awesome rooftop deck. I hope to come back!
This was a nearly perfect short-term property. Great for a bigger group (we had four adults, all sleeping in separate accommodations). In a great part of the city (wish we had had more time to explore) and within a short (15-20 minute) walk to the BART. The rooftop retreat was great, and lots of nice little amenities. Very comfortable kitchen and living room. Not great if you have a car, but you hardly need one. Lots to see and do in the Mission district, and easy to get to other parts of town. Easy to find, good instructions for check-in/out. Owner was very responsive both before, during, and after the trip. Highly recommended.
Cute curb appeal but smelled very musty when we walked in. Bought a candle to burn. Cute place and linens were clean and beds comfy. Had to change out water pan under sink as was overflowing. Mission area was pretty dark at night and did feel a little unsafe walking at night as restaurants etc were several blocks away. The owner had great communication and gave info about the area and their favorite restaurants. Easy rental and enjoyed it.
We visited the SF Roof Deck Retreat the week of Labor Day. We were four adults and found the accommodations to be spacious, comfortable and filled with wonderful natural light. The photos on the website depicted this property well. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the rooftop deck every day.We even had a candle light dinner up there one evening! Coming from the East Coast it was pure delight to relax up there amongst all the wonderful succulents, the limes growing on the tree next to our patio table, and that big beautiful palm tree overlooking the neighborhood. We found the kitchen well equipped. The linens were luxurious. Having fresh air flowing in through that neat opened window in the bathroom while showering was a unique treat. We enjoyed exploring the Mission. The murals throughout this eclectic neighborhood where enchanting. We also frequented Philz coffee shop and Mission Pie bakery many times! Eat more PIE became the motto of our vacation. Overall, we would highly recommend staying at the SF Roof Deck Retreat while visiting San Fransisco. Next time we will bring more people with us to fill that third bedroom and maybe even spill out into that lovely living room!! Thank you for providing us a wonderful retreat while we were in your wonderful city. It by far exceeded any hotel we possibly could have stayed in. We truly felt like we had all the comforts of home! We will return! Sincerely, Kathleen Schelling
My husband, son, and our son's girlfriend, who were both visiting from the east coast, spent three days in this authentically San Francisco-style home and enjoyed everything about it. The Mission District is a very colorful neighborhood and the home is conveniently located within it. The house is filled with light and character, from the old piano in the living room, the vibrant colors on the walls, the skylights and stained glass windows, to the collection of pottery in the kitchen. The house is warm and inviting...everything very clean and comfortable...the photos don't adequately capture the charm. The rooftop garden was a huge plus. Walking distance to grocery shopping and tons of restaurants of every imaginable cuisine, cafes, clubs. Everywhere you walk you'll come across spectacular murals sprinkled throughout the area. Although we didn't spend all of our time in the Mission (so much to see and do elsewhere in the City), some of the highlights were Philz Coffee at 25th and Mission (they brew coffee one cup at a time and have a dizzying array of choices), The Foreign Cinema on Mission near 20th (fabulous restaurant converted from an old movie house, complete with French films playing on a large white wall at the back of the outdoor seating area, with old drive-in movie theater speakers at each table if you care to listen in. Another favorite restaurant is a little French bistro called Garcon, on the corner of Valencia and 22nd. An inexpensive but phenomenally delicious Peruvian restaurant, Limon, is at the corner of 21st and South Van Ness. Not within walking distance, but a short drive away, is one of the best breakfast places we've ever eaten at: Mission Beach Cafe at Guerrero and 14th. They also serve lunch and dinner, but you can't beat their breakfasts...expect a wait, but it's worth it. Dolores Park is another must see nearby, but probably not walking distance, unless you're up for a bit of a hike...it's do-able...you can always catch a taxi back. Fabulous views of the city from the top of the park, and it's just another great neighborhood to walk around in, teeming with life.
Dan, the owner, was very responsive and provided a wealth of information prior to our visit, as well as responding to requests after our arrival. I would definitely recommend this property.
