What a wonderful, peaceful home! Joan could not be a nicer host. She is very attentive to any need you might have, and equally allows complete privacy. We were well looked after, and felt very at home.
The apartment is absolutely charming. Every thoughtful detail is in play. The home is spacious, clean, good light and comfortable. There is a beautiful back patio just off the kitchen we greatly enjoyed. My dog and I had a fantastic month here, and I would book here again in a heart beat.
The location is amazing. You are among the lovely, historic, Victorian homes of the Haight-Ashbury district. You can walk everywhere, and you are not in a section of steep SF hills. The immediate blocks are flat and easy to navigate. Surrounding are lots of restaurants, coffee shops and stores. Whole Foods is a few blocks away. Golden Gate Park is just a few blocks away (you can walk to the lawn of the Flower Conservatory within 10 minutes) . Public Transportation (Muni) is just 2 blocks away. Street parking is only for 2 hours at a time (and can be hard to find), but there is a 24 hour parking lot, 1 block away ($22 for 24 hrs.) which was very worth it.
This truly is a wonderful place to stay with a fantastic host; you'll be very happy here!
