❀ Location Location Location!
The neighborhood can't be beat. Wake up to a view of Mission Dolores, the oldest building in SF. Start off your day with pastries from the award-winning Tartine Bakery. Order ahead a savory sandwich from Ike's Place and enjoy it in landmark Dolores Park with a breathtaking view of downtown San Francisco. Observe the characters of the Mission while waiting in the infamously long line for Bi-Rite Creamery. Every corner and alley has some hidden gem awaiting discovery.

♪ Note on Privacy
There are 2 bathrooms that you will share with at least 3 other people. We have flexible morning schedules and can work around yours. There's generally a lot of activity on weekends and the walls are fairly thin.
We now hire professional cleaners before each stay (unless the reservation is last minute). If you stay one night we pretty much come out even financially because of this. But we get a clean apartment :)

Newly Remodeled, completely redone Private One Bedroom In-Law Garden Retreat
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...
Time away for work or pleasure will find you ensconced in a cozy, yet delightfully sunny studio apartment in the basement of our victorian home. Nestled in the fabled "bronze coast" of laid back Alameda, our unique space will welcome you with a private entrance, quaint kitchen, and full sized-bed tucked into a turret.
QUAINT AND UNIQUE
Filled with found, repurposed, and custom-made items, our basement apartment is an ever-evolving work in progress. The decor will change over time as we introduce new, re-designed pieces.
The layout is at once cozy and spacious. There are two different sleepings spaces: full-sized bed (2) in the turret facing the front of the home and a daybed (1-2) in the reading nook.
The reading nook is isolated from the main room of the apartment, providing a quiet alcove that can also become a second private sleeping space when the french doors to the kitchen are closed. Help yourself to a selection from our modest library with a little something for everyone.
The private bathroom has a standing shower and pedestal sink with plenty of linens. The kitchen is compact, but fully functional with a gas stove, fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, and enough dishes to cook and serve a meal. There is also a washer/dryer in the apartment.
The living room is purposefully low tech, providing a peaceful reprieve that is sans gadgets. It includes a lush, two-person LoveSac (a really huge bean bag) and roomy, red leather couch.
Everything included in the space is available for you to use. This includes freshly washed linens, extra pillows, bedding and beach towels. We provide complimentary coffee, tea, sugar and agave for your morning pick-me-up. You will have your own key to get in and out of the apartment and are welcome to use the various seating arrangements scattered throughout the backyard.
LAZY ISLAND TOWN
Alameda is a fairly quiet and lazy island in the heart of the San Francisco Bay, just off the city of Oakland. Entrance onto the island is by car via bridge or tunnel, but there is also a ferry that shuttles back and forth across the Bay to the City. Our town is a biking and walking community, with plenty of bike lanes and easy pedestrian sidewalks.
The apartment sits on the corner of a cul-de-sac that ends at a lagoon in a serene family neighborhood with lots of lush trees and greenery. The Alameda shoreline is a 10 minute walk and is great for wading in the gentle Bay waters. On a breezy day, you will find lots of kites, body surfers, and windsurfers out playing.
Two different main streets are available for you to explore: bustling Park Street with a mix of mom-and-pop and trendy stores or mild-mannered Webster Street with a year-round farmer’s market every Tuesday and Saturday.
A queen sized air-mattress is also available on request for a $15 flat fee.
We have two beach cruiser bikes available for rental for $15 a day per bike (email if interested).
