Why dan caplan chose Mission District
San Francisco's Mission District has to be one of the most amazing neighborhoods....anywhere! We are sad to be away, but you will be glad to stay in our Home! You won't find any place like this. Character, soul, art, spirit. There's something very special going on here. And it's real--and colorful.
What makes this House unique
Do you want to be spoiled by the sunshine? By the amazing food choices just steps away? By the bright and colorful life going on here? Come and see for yourself why the Mission has been written up so much lately! We would be happy to help point you in the right direction, if you like.

Good spot in San Fran!
Stayed there with some friends for a first time visit to San Fran. First off, the owner, Dan, was really prompt in answering questions and even sent us a neighborhood guide.
The place itself is small but it was adequate. Lots of vibrant colors on the walls, not something every one can deal with but for the neighborhood that is located in, it just goes.
The bed on the master bedroom was small, my husband is a big guy and so it was kind of tight for us, so overall bed was not comfortable.
The other 2 rooms were my friends stayed were reported to have comfortable beds. The neighbors were a bit noisy so sleeping in was out of the question. There was also some kind of construction going on on the next street over so the jackhammering noise was terrible.
However, this is not fault of the owner or the property, just bad luck.
Additionally, one bathroom for 4 adults is just too tight. I would recommend this place if you are a couple or a family, not really for friends.
Now, for the positives:
The property is an old construction as most of the Mission neighborhood is. Kind of eclectic, interesting, it reminded me a lot of the Wynwood neighborhood in Miami. If you are from SoFla you will know. Kind of an up and coming neighborhood.
Mission neighborhood is mostly Mexican settlement. Great Mexican food around , bars , good restaurants. Enjoyable.
The place was very clean, they had white crisp towels and even TP in the bathroom, something i have not normally seen in rental places. Nice touch.
The highlight for me though, was the roof top deck. It was great!. Clean, well mantained and cool. We spent time there relaxing, drinking wine and listening to music. Definitely a gem to thave that on a property in San Francisco.
Overall a nice place to stay , and for the price, is a good deal.
Une bonne adresse dans le super quartier de Mission district
On a apprécié la cuisine bien équipée et surtout la terrasse sur le toit. La décoration de la maison et de la terrasse est sympa.
Quelques regrets sur le nombre de lits obligeant à coucher 2 personnes sur les matelas d'appoint dans le salon. Un lave-vaisselle aurait été apprécié.
Great place to stay
Fantastic location, lovely house. Really helpful owners who have also made a book of useful local information. The major bonus is the fabulous roof deck.
Perfect place in a great area
We loved "our orange house"! The communal spaces were amazing. The deck a haven for hanging out with family and friends. The grill needed loving but served to let us make a feast. The kitchen was great and well kitted. And the living room was lovely. The bedrooms were perfect too. I was worried about the kids room as it opened to the living room and lets in lots of light. But a noisemaker for sound and late bedtimes for light meant our little ones slept great there. Even slept in! The only thing that stank was parking, but we knew that going in to it so no biggie. Thanks for sharing your place Dan. We'd definitely go back!
Great house, great location!
This is a fantastic vacation rental in the San Francisco Mission district! 5 friends and I rented the SF Mission Roof Deck Retreat for a long weekend in May and were not disappointed. It was the perfect headquarters to explore the city. The neighborhood surrounding the house is fairly quiet at night, but stores, shops, nightlife, and restaurants are only a short walk away.
The house itself was extremely clean and well stocked. Linens, towels, and beds were freshly laundered and comfortable. The house was spacious enough for 6 adults, and we enjoyed hanging out on the rooftop deck as well as in the living room and kitchen (having a vinyl record player was a great touch!).
I highly recommend renting this house if you have a group of 4+ people - the value per person unbeatable when compared to the standard hotel stay. We frequently commented that it was so nice to have an actual house to hang out, rest, and catch up with one another - something that is not possible when split up across 3-4 hotel rooms. Another added value was having a full kitchen, facilitating the ability to cook breakfast at the house when we didn't feel like all going out in the morning.
Dan, the owner, was extremely communicative and easy to work with and check-in and out was a breeze!
Thanks for helping us have a fantastic vacation!
This apartment is well situated in the Mission....close to market, laundry, coffee house and restaurants. We had 5 adults and had plenty of room. Kitchen works. Roof deck is great. We would stay again if we had that many people.
The Mission District is the sunniest neighborhood in San Francisco! It is also conveniently located to access the most popular areas of the city within 10-15 min. Highways 101 and 280 are minutes away, making access to other parts of the Bay Area also easy. You can easily walk from the apartment to wonderful food, shopping and culture. Public transportation (BART and MUNI) is close by!
