Our complete description follows this city generated notice:

SAN FRANCISCO SHORT-TERM RESIDENTIAL RENTAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: STR-920. Possession of a San Francisco Short-Term Rental Registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code 41A).

THIS BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT was once a corner store. It has been tastefully remodeled to make a very comfortable living space. It consists of one very large room with a sleeping area sectioned off by curtains. It also has an attractive bathroom and a closet. There are areas for sleeping, dining, cooking, working and relaxing. The kitchenette has a fridge, two burners, a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and filtered water on tap, as well as all the kitchenware and tableware you may need. The bed has a very comfortable queen size mattress. It's all quite romantic, but you can also sleep an additional two people on the comfortable fold down sofa. You'll have the use of wireless high speed cable internet and widescreen dish TV and dvd player. The apartment is completely separate from our living space so you'll have it all to yourself. It has a grand and gracious yet completely cozy feel.

We like to host visitors and we'll be happy to give you information and tips on request. You'll love our neighborhood where you'll find some of the city's sunniest weather, best affordable restaurants, great views and easy parking. Street parking is safe and generally available either right outside or within a block. The house is on a quiet residential street two blocks from Bernal Hill Park, which has spectacular views of the city and The Bay. Our electricity comes from solar panels on the roof!

Everything you need is a short walk away on Cortland Street including quality, interesting and affordable restaurants, cafes, bars, groceries, shops, services, a bakery, a bookstore, a library, even an art gallery! There's also a farmer's market nearby on Saturdays, and two lovely parks. We love our neighborhood which is so friendly and livable!

Transportation to Downtown (about 3.5 miles to Civic Center) or any of the San Francisco attractions is easy with frequent buses. Two minutes from the front door you can catch a MUNI bus to the nearby BART (underground) station. Or take a walk over Bernal Hill to BART and the Mission District and see some amazing views of the city and the Bay. Freeway access is nearby and easy.

Mike and Nic are good hosts. Though they were traveling during our stay period but they stayed in touch and answered all our questions on time. Also they had given us their friend Christopher's number to help us with anything. We stayed in their airbnb for six days. This house's location is great. There are plenty of eating places nearby. It has an excellent bus connectivity. All of it is in 5-10mins walking distance. House is good for three people. It is very well organized. Everything is clean and systematic. I have dust allergies and it worries me a lot whenever I travel. But in their house I didn't have any bout of allergies and i could sleep well. Their bathroom is very tiny so not good for a large size people.

A wonderful little gem to stay in. Great neighborhood with tons of restaurants and stores. Easily walkable (though hilly). The apartment itself is well appointed with TV, full cable and fast internet. Small but functional kitchen. Apartment is basically 1 large room cordoned off with curtains for the sleeping area. Plenty big for 2 people. Three if someone slept on the couch. Would happily stay here again on my next trip to SF.

Mike and Nic are friendly, welcoming and warm hosts. Their place is large, and most comfortable with all the amenities we needed for our six-night stay--TV, WiFi, books, lots of towels, hot water, and outfitted kitchen. For us, the location was perfect for walking or taking public transit. The fish markets and grocery stores in the Latino neighbourhood were amazing! We would definitely stay here again.

My brother and I stayed at Nic and Mike’s place for about a week in September. The flat is in a really nice, quiet neighbourhood of San Francisco; there are a few good places to eat just down the road on Cortland Avenue and plenty of grocery shops within walking distance of the apartment. It’s a little out of the way from downtown San Francisco but definitely not inconvenient - a lyft/uber is only $8-14 to get pretty much anywhere in the city and that’s the only minor drawback of the place. The flat itself is very cosy and is an ideal size for two people. It has a very spacious feel, it’s one big airy open plan room with the main bedroom separated from the rest by a curtain. The rest of the room is a living room/dining room/kitchen - they’ve managed to fit in every amenity you’d need for a short stay without making it feel at all cramped. All in all I was a massive fan of the layout. Nic and Mike kindly set up the sofa bed for us, and were very friendly and helped us out with buses when we were leaving. They left loads of great information on things to do so we had a packed week of activities (try to rent bikes to cycle over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito), we had a great time when we were there and would definitely stay here again.
