The space

Centrally located in San Francisco, this sunny and warm 2 bedroom 1.5 bath flat is on the main floor of a three story Edwardian home. The building was built in 1908 and is one of the original houses in the Cole Valley/Parnassus Heights area. The flat has been remodeled for a modern interior feel with some period detail left to preserve the beauty of the era in which it was built.

The flat has a private entrance. The flat comfortably sleeps 6 people and is perfect for a family or friends traveling together. The living room has a working fireplace for the cooler San Francisco evenings and a 40" flat-screen television with cable and DVD player. The master suite has a queen size bed with a private working fire place and a television with all cable channels and internet ready for Netflix. The second bedroom has a full size bed and private bath access. The living room has a comfortable queen size sofa bed along with a twin size daybed. Linens and towels are provided. Wi-fi access is throughout the flat.

There are hardwood floors throughout the unit. The flat has a large gourmet chef's kitchen with brand new appliances, pots, pans, dishes and cutlery. The kitchen, formal dining area, and living room can all be connected to make one great room and is wonderful for entertaining. There is a back deck patio that has lots of north facing sunshine which keeps the patio nice and sunny.

The flat is in walking distance to shops, restaurants, and cafes on Cole and Carl Street as well as the entrance of Golden Gate Park (which houses the California Academy of Sciences, the de Young Museum, the Botanical Gardens, the Conservatory of Flowers, and the Golden Gate Park Children's Playground). We are also a short walk (9 blocks) to the famous Haight Street where the Grateful Dead and other bands made famous in the 60s and 70s. The flat is also 8 blocks from the Castro district. In addition, the home is 5 blocks to the N-Judah subway/MUNI line to go downtown to City Hall, the Asian Art Museum, the Opera House, Davies Symphony Hall, Union Square, the Ferry Building, the Financial District, South of Market or to AT& T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants) or to even go to the Cal Train (for Silicon Valley or the Peninsula). You can also take the N line right to Ocean Beach where some of the greatest surf is enjoyed year-round. The 43 Bus line (4 blocks away) can take you to the Marina district or Pacific Heights. The 37 Bus at the corner of 17th St and Cole also gives access to other great San Francisco neighborhoods such as Twin Peaks where one can enjoy panoramic views of the entire Bay Area. A car is not necessary to stay here. However, access to the 101 or 280 highways are both only a few minutes away and the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge are both only 10-15 minutes away by car.

Joy is a great communicator and offers a great home in a great location at the best value. The neighborhood is safe and only a few blocks away from great restaurants, while being a short uber/lyft ride away from all the attractions.
