Rear Garden, Perfect for Relaxing



Fabulous location and an even more fabulous private, whole apartment unit in a super-friendly and walk-able neighborhood of San Francisco. You'll be just steps away from more than 50 excellent bars and restaurants, 3 grocery stores, 3 convenience markets, and coffee houses. It sleeps up to 3, but is best enjoyed by couples, singles or business travelers. The large, 700-square ft. one-bedroom Garden Quarters unit is on the ground floor of our 1883 Victorian and we live in the home above it.



Our Garden Quarters was recently remodeled in a traditional style featuring a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with Viking gas range, microwave, GE Profile double-door refrigerator with water and ice in the door, and KitchenAid dishwasher and garbage disposer.

The eat-in kitchen...

Opens to the cozy living room with a very comfortable sofa,

a Vizio 47" flat panel TV with 500 cable channels and free streaming services like Netflix, and a stereo speaker system to plug your phone or tablet into. This room is where a twin Air Bed can be set up when needed.

A hall with a huge, mirrored sliding door closet leads to the spacious, quiet, carpeted bedroom with the garden outlook and great light.

In the bedroom there is more closet space, a stacked washer-dryer and French doors to the garden.


The bedroom features a Queen-sized bed, a dresser, two night tables and a desk for a work space or dressing table.


If you have a third guest, a twin-size inflatable Air Bed is available for your use. It can be set up in the living room, which has interior French doors and shades for privacy. Please keep in mind that inflating, deflating and making-up the Air Bed with our provided linens will be the responsibility of our guests.

The renovated bathroom has a glass enclosed shower-over-tub, a huge framed mirror and plenty of storage in the vanity.


High-speed WiFi Internet service (20 mps WiFi, 50 mps Ethernet) is free and available throughout the unit. Convenient USB charging ports are available in several rooms.

Other things to note

As mentioned, we live directly above this Garden Quarters unit, so you will occasionally hear footsteps from our kitchen, dining and family room above. We try hard to minimize the foot traffic, but 134-year-old Victorian buildings sometimes have some creaking and unavoidable sounds from the floors above.


No pets, no smoking and the unit is not suitable for young children under 5. Also no lit candles.


If you use our Air Bed for a third guest, it will affect the available space in the Living Room, and as mentioned, it must be inflated, deflated and made-up by our guests with our provided bedding.


Please note that we have no available on-site parking. The neighborhood has limited two-hour parking on the streets Monday thru Friday 9am-6pm, no restrictions on Saturday or Sunday. Overnight street parking allowed from 6pm to 9am if you can locate a parking spot nearby. There are some paid parking garages a few blocks away, but they are expensive.
