The space

The cottage was renovated and decorated in August 2011 and it looks stunning. I'm a builder and I live on the property. I have years of experience creating wonderful spaces in San Francisco. The sunny private garden is the highlight of the space.

We'd love to have you as our guest in our secluded, light-filled cottage in the very best hood in SF, near the Castro, Mission and Dolores Park. The cottage is free-standing, quiet, light-filled and opens up to a private landscaped garden. Truly a unique and charming space.

We are 2 blocks from Dolores Park, 2 blocks to the Muni metro and the Castro shops. There is a wonderful coffee shop nearby.

The cottage has beautifully refinished wide-plank hardwood floors, fresh paint and new Italian tile in the kitchen. There is a queen bed as well as a new, comfortable queen size pull out leather couch.

The landlords live at the front of the property, and we're happy to help.

There is no parking for the cottage. Street parking is easy, but restricted to 2 hours between 8am and 9pm Monday through Friday. Parking is unlimted on the weekends.

There are several paid surface lots on the north side of Market between Church and Noe.

Excellent location, walking distance to everything you wish to be around. It is extremely quiet, and you have your own personal entrance and beautiful garden. Matt was very quick to get in touch with as well, and extra towels/blankets were in the room, readily available. Thank y…

Place is very clean, and in an ideal location. Garden is a lovely surprise and amenity to have. Spent most evenings sitting out there. Only regret is that I didn't stay for longer.

Beautiful, quiet spot in a great location, with lots of restaurants nearby, as well as MUNI public transport. I really enjoyed the little garden area, and in general how much light gets into the apartment. I truly enjoyed my stay!

A perfect location and place to enjoy Sam Francisco. Clean and comfortable cottage with all you need to enjoy the city. Easy and smooth check in process and access to the property. Highly recommended.
