This charming one bedroom Victorian flat is on the second floor overlooking a lovely garden. A second bedroom is available for an additional charge.

No need for a car as five bus lines, one block away, take you anywhere you want to go. Easy access to UCSF. The flat is attractively furnished and has a wood burning fireplace in the living room, one/two bedrooms with queen-size beds (one with marble washstand). There is a sit-down kitchen with stove, microwave, dishwasher, and full-size refrigerator.... All dishware and linens are included.

There is a family-run market one-half block away with organic fruits and vegetables as well as a selection of Niman Ranch meats. Haight Street itself has a collection of one-of-a-kind shops, interesting bars, restaurants, a world-class brew pub and even a repertory movie house, all within three blocks. A bit farther (approximately a mile) is the fabulous California Academy of Sciences,the new DeYoung Museum along with all the other recreational features of Golden Gate Park. Taxis abound on Haight Street, just walk out the door. But don't miss the experience of riding the buses. A single bus ride will take you into the heart of the Castro District as well as to all the cultural and entertainment offerings that this world-class city has to offer: theatre, opera, symphony, clubs and an infinite selection of fine restaurants. If there's any area of San Francisco that evokes images of the long-gone '60s hippie culture, the Haight is it. Fragments of that flower-power, incense-burning, acid-dropping, tie-dye-wearing, peace-and-love-vibing era can be purchased at smoke shops and Eastern-influenced outlets bearing names like Dreams of Kathmandu, Pipe Dreams and The Love of Ganesha. But save for a few hippie relics, the Haight today is a whole new scene. Exclusive boutiques, high-end vintage-clothing shops, second-hand stores, Internet cafs and hip restaurants have all settled in, making the Haight one of San Francisco's commercial centers.
