About Lina & Alex
Hello! We've been living in San Francisco for over 25 years. We’re friendly, open, intellectually curious and honest, world travelers and explorers. We love: a comfy environment with a hot cup of coffee; a clean modern bathroom and kitchen; eating delicious food. Our favorite places that we’ve traveled to are Brazil, Argentina, France, Israel, Italy and Japan. As your hosts, we’re here if you need us, helpful but not intrusive, and we will certainly keep your privacy. The apartment has its own entrance, so you will feel like you're in a home-away-from-home. We'd love to share our home and local knowledge with you and aim to make your visit to San Francisco as lovely, comfortable, and enjoyable as possible! Feel free to ask us any questions.

Awesome little place
Awesome little apartment style place. Alex was very helpful and gave all the info we needed.
clean, safe property
Not luxurious. Lack of any easy chair and wastebaskets annoying.
Extremely clean, spacious rental
This property was very clean and comfortable and in a nice, quiet residential neighborhood. The photos are very accurate.
You need to arrange to meet the owner to get the keys and codes, but he was flexible about meeting time. We found that it was about a $22 Uber ride into whichever part of San Francisco that we headed to each morning. One negative is that the owner controls the thermostat. Overall a very nice place to stay and much better than a hotel room.
In San Francisco, away from the crowds.
Clean and neat place with friendly hosts. Futon is perfect for a small adult or two small children. Modern upgrades feel like a luxury hotel.
This was one of the best Vrbo rentals we have stayed at. It is a beautiful and VERY CLEAN apartment! Alex was so friendly and helpful, and he promptly responded to our questions and needs. The walk to the beach is doable, but we recommend just driving down and finding street parking a couple of blocks away. The neighborhood is quiet without the hustle and bustle of traffic noise. After a full day of hitting all the touristy spots in SF, it was a relief to come back to this home away from home! Highly recommend!
Excellence and more!
Everything about this property and the owners was superb. Will stay here when we return. Great location, helpful tips on activities and restaurants, and a high quality experience all around. Thank you Alex and Lina!
Thanks for staying with us. Look forward to see you again!
San Francisco weather is variable, by which means it changes from minute-to-minute, street-to-street.
Our location is one of the best! Outer Sunset, Parkside jewel of San Francisco!
It's one of the safest neighborhoods in San Francisco very safe and quiet except for the sound of the ocean. We can walk the streets day or night and feel safe and comfortable.
The Outer Sunset is a deliciously silent residential area with old-fashioned stretches of shops and cafes along its main drags of Noriega and Taraval streets, adjacent to the Ocean Beach. The Outer Sunset is a popular destination for folks wishing to escape humid summer heat.
It is very easy to get Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Zoo, Sausalito, Napa Wine Country, freeway to Silicon Valley and only one street car directly to Downtown, Financial District, and Union Square.
Nearby many points of interest, attractions and museums, there is a short list:
de Young Museum
California Academy of Sciences
Japanese Tea Garden
Golden Gate Park hiking and biking trails
San Francisco Zoo is a fantastic chance for kids to experience wildlife firsthand
The 16th Ave Tiled Steps
Stern Grove, home of a long-running free performing-arts festival, held each summer
Surfing is very popular year-round
Weekly food truck and music events
Weekly farmers markets
We are also just two blocks away from the “L” Taraval Muni street car station (30th and Taraval street), which allows you to easily access the rest of the city and the heart of the action. Approximate travel times on “L” Muni from the house: Castro (15min); Powell (20min); Embarcadero (25min).
But you don't have to go far to enjoy the city. There are some amazing places to enjoy within a few minutes’ drive of the house, including the breathtaking views of Ocean Beach, which stretches from the Cliff House to Fort Funston, Land's End park (for amazing views of the Golden Gate bridge), Lake Merced (an urban lake for jogging/boating/fishing/golfing), others.
A few more blocks away are a Walgreens, Safeway (grocery store) and post office.
Free street parking is always available.
