This Edwardian house in San Francisco’s desirable Richmond district is surrounded by Golden Gate Park, the Pacific Ocean, Lincoln Park, and the Presidio. It’s only half a block to Golden Gate Park – a 3 minute walk to most event sites (Outside Lands, Bluegrass festival, and others), and has easy access to the Academy of Sciences, Botanical Garden, Japanese Tea Garden, De Young Museum, Stow Lake (with boat rides), the buffalo pen, fly fishing ponds, and an archery range. It's 1.5 miles to Ocean Beach (Cliff House), Sutro baths, Land's End hiking trails, the Legion of Honor, Lincoln Park (with a public golf course), Baker Beach, and Haight St. The house is within walking distance of many restaurants, grocery stores, and local produce and fish markets. The house is also very close to USF and is a short drive to UCSF and SF State University.
With easy transportation (buses 5, 31, 38, 2, 1, 29), or a short ride of Uber/Lyft, you can get to every corner of the city and beyond: the Presidio, the San Francisco Zoo, Downtown, Coit Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Lombard St., Chinatown, Japan-town, and more!
The Neighborhood: The Richmond District is one of San Francisco's most desirable and safe neighborhoods. It is filled with a mix of Edwardian and Victorian houses. It is a wonderful, lively place. We recommend hanging out at the Sunday morning farmer's market on Clement Street; walking through “New China Towns”: Clement St. (and Irving St.); eating out at wonderful restaurants at Geary Blvd, Clement St., Balboa St., and Irving St.; walking to (and through) Golden Gate Park, the Presidio (Baker beach), Land’s End, Ocean Beach (including the Cliff House with its amazing views), and many nearby attractions. (Don’t miss the Japanese Tea Garden in the park!) Locals are friendly, approachable, and laid back.

For your information, we live in part of the house. We promise to stay completely out of your way. In fact, with your private entrance and separate spaces, chances are that you won’t even see us. That said, if you’d like to chat about San Francisco, just let us know!
No smoking, no pets, no party please.
