The neighborhood surrounding the Haight Estate is one of the most vibrant and green areas in the city. Enjoy walking to four spectacular parks and some great eateries. We sit at the intersection of three great neighborhoods: Lower Haight, Upper Haight and the Divisadero Corridor. Walk east down Haight Street, left out the front door, three blocks to enter the lower Haight. Great economical eateries and many eclectic bars characterize this active nightlife neighborhood. Walk west up Haight Street, right out the front door, to the famous Haight Ashbury district. Famed epicenter of San Francisco’s 60’s counterculture movement the area has retained its funky charm with some great shopping and eatery updates. Walk north on Divisadero and you’ll find one of San Francisco’s fastest emerging communities with popular destination restaurants and numerous cafes.

The Haight Estate is centrally located and has ideal access to public transportation anywhere in the city and beyond.
The '71' bus is on our block and travels both directions all the way from Ocean Beach, along the south side of Golden Gate Park, down Market Street and ending near the Bay in the South of Market neighborhood.
The '22' bus crosses Haight Street a few blocks away at Fillmore and will take you all the way to the Marina and Fort Mason. Or you can pick up the '24' bus on our block at Divisadero and transfer to the '22' in Pacific Heights. Contact me for more information.
The 'N Judah' Muni Trolley is a five block walk at Duboce Park. The trolley is a great choice as it goes from one end of city to another. Beach to Bay. It travels east down to the financial district, and South of Market terminating at the grand Ferry Building with access to ferrys that serve Oakland, Alameda and Sausalito. The trolley travels west to Ocean Beach and along the south border of Golden Gate park. Contact me for more information.
The 'F line' historic streetcar line is a seven block walk away and runs down Market Street in old restored street cars. It terminates in the north Waterfront area by Pier 39 where you can get ferries to Alcatraz and Angel Island. Contact me for more information.
The 71 bus, and N and F trolley lines all stop near the Powell Street Cable Car line which is the emblematic San Francisco public transpiration option that goes up and over Nob Hill to the waterfront. Contact me for more information.
The 71 bus, and N and F trolley lines also stop at multiple points along Market Street for BART subway access which in turn travels from the airport, through San Francisco to deep into the East Bay. Contact me for more information.
There is also walking access to a dozen zipcar stations if you want to use a car for a day. You can register for zipcar. Contact me for more information.
There is no dedicated parking, but parking is usually available in the immediate neighborhood. Be mindful of the street sweeping signs. For two hours each week you will get ticketed for parking in a street sweeping zone. On Haight, north on Broderick and on Page parking is available without a permit. These tend to be the spots that go first.
Head in parking. On Waller, just south of Haight running parallel and on Baker there is head-in parking which means plenty of spaces. The Broderick is head in and with no permit required to stay all week. Baker Street and the side of Buena Vista park are also head-in parking but with permits required for day parking.
If you park in a permit area overnight, you still have two hours from the start of the day to park for free. So you can stay in a permit zone until 10am in the morning, then move your car.
In practice, they rarely ticket for permit violations, but always ticket for street sweeping violations. Super parking secret is that up Alpine Terrace road the hill is too steep for meter maid car to climb so while it is permit parking, it is rare to get ticketed there.
Check in is after 4pm and check out at noon. Quite hours are from 10pm to 7am.
Absolutely no smoking tobacco on the premises.
The thermostat in the front hall controls the gas heater behind the screen in the living room. This is a passive circulatory heater and only heats the front room or the front room and front bedroom if the bedroom doors are open.
The thermostat in the kitchen controls a different heater in the back of the house that blows air into the all the rooms from the dining room back to the back bedroom.
There are two waste bins under the sink, one for garbage and one for recycling. If you need to empty the bins the waste cans are under the outside stairs through the back door.
There is no closet in the front bedroom, but there is a closet in the dining room. There is not a dresser in the bed in the back bedroom but there are drawers under the bed.
