A comfortable, small space in a great location, tucked away from the street, surrounded by trees and flowers.
20 steps lead up from the street to this charming studio apartment which is part of the cottage I'm living in all year around. Built on a hill it has survived the 1906 earthquake and is listed as the oldest house on the street. The studio on garden level has its own entrance through a large French door. The place is comfortable but small and can not accommodate more than 2 people without any size kids - sorry. It has a 7 ft ceiling and a 6 ft beam connecting bedroom with kitchen area and bathroom - tall people be aware! You will find a queen size Tatami futon bed, a big desk, dressers and shelves, a kitchen area with all the utensils you need to make breakfast and snacks but not good for cooking elaborate meals - leave that to the many great restaurants around the corner. The bathroom has a shower, no tub. The patio is all yours to enjoy next to lemon tree and rose bush.
The neighborhood is one of the most sought after for its culinary adventures - Tartine Bakery, Delfina, Limon, Farina, Loló - all in walking distance. Dolores Park, with a wide variety of weekend entertainment and people soaking up the fun and the sun, is half a block away.
Public transportation, streetcar, buses and BART will take you to downtown in 15 min. and to the airport in 30 min.
Guests are welcome to use the patio.
Once a week we will do some cleaning on request and take out garbage for Thu morning pick-up.

Recently retired and with daughters away from home I can offer my cozy garden apartment to travelers coming to this beautiful city and this very attractive neighborhood. My favorite travel destination is Europe where I grew up but now with more time at my hands I will try to explore the rest of the world not just through travel, books, music and films - but also through hosting you.
