Large 2800 square feet (260 square meters) fully renovated condo in best location of SF (a few blocks away from Mark Zuckerberg's new mansion). Special amenities such as steam shower, jacuzzi and luxury kitchen. Walking distance to best restaurants.

The space

Our condo is the bottom three floors of a large house, about 2800 square feet (or 260 square meters). The top floor is the kitchen, living room and guest bedroom, the middle floor is the master bedroom and garage, and the bottom floor is the garden and two bedrooms. Guests can enjoy the private garden, and soak up the sun on the comfortable modern furniture. Because it is situated on top of a hill, there is a gorgeous view of San Francisco and the bay from the living room window. From the bedroom, you see greenery and it is quite peaceful.

The kitchen was recently renovated and is ideal for large group cooking and dining - the dining room table expands to fit up to 10 people. The incredible amount of counter space and plentiful kitchen gadgets (everything you can imagine, even for molecular gastronomy) make this an ideal location for serious cooks.

All four bedrooms are large enough to be comfortable. Two of them have pull out sofa beds - however, these are uniquely comfortable for long term guests. They have a pull out platform with a firm wooden base and Tempurpedic mattresses - my mother has back problems but found them supportive and comfortable when staying with us for three months. The downstairs interior bedroom has a Tempurpedic king size bed. And the master bedroom has an incredibly comfortable Aireloom king size bed (the same brand used at the White house, it's wonderful). For our guests much needed rest and restoration, we have a grand jaccuzi tub and steam shower, as well as two showers with two double shower heads for two people to enjoy.

Our home is our haven and we appreciate the serenity and comfort we feel here. Four our guests we provide wonderful bath products, hair dryers in every bathroom, luxury towels, incredibly soft bamboo bedsheets, office supplies (printer, stationary and stamps, computer monitor to hook up a laptop) and of course fabulous kitchen amenities (everything from a top of the line Japanese rice cooker to food processor to sodastream to good knives). Feel free to use whatever you like - treat the place like home!

Guest access

You will be able to access the whole space, all 4 bedrooms, 2 living rooms and dining room.

Interaction with guests

I'll be traveling during the month of September to Japan, with my husband and two kids. However, I have set up a good system - my neighbor, who is a landlord by trade, will organize the stays and be available for any problems or questions with the house. Since he's retired and lives next door, he's easy to reach. I have an excellent maid team who will professionally clean every nook and cranny, so the place is spotless. I will leave a binder in the apartment that has a home manual, with everything from how to work the dishwasher to how to shut the french doors, as well as my favorite places in the neighborhood and beyond (favorite places for day trips, etc). And if you would like personal recommendations, of course I would be happy to help. Since I will be in Japan, just email me and I will respond within 24 hours.

Other things to note

Transportation is easily accessible because we live right next to a subway stop and the train passes by our house. Usually the train is quieter than a car passing (it's a modern track), and we have sound proofing windows installed in the master bedroom, which help diffuse any noise. You are welcome to park your car in our garage for an extra $20 per night to cover the cost of us taking our car and leaving it in longterm parking while we are away. Or, you can park on the street (there is always street parking) but you need to be mindful of the two hour parking times and/or street cleaning signs so that you don't get a ticket!.

This was by far the best Airbnb experience I have had. The condo was fantastic - we loved the space, the location, the luxurious feel of the place and the amazing views over the whole city from the lounge and master bedroom. It was peaceful and generously resourced wth all the amenities you could possibly need. The welcome card and gift from Maya was just lovely, making us feel very special and welcome, and it was a joy to return here every night after a busy day in San Francisco. Public transport links were fantastic and the local restaurants provided huge variety and excellent food.

Maya made us feel extremely welcome in her gorgeous home. So many amazing little touches which made the whole stay far easier, enjoyable and unforgettable. I cannot emphasise enough how amazing this apartment is. The view from the living room is breathtaking! The location is superb, with many local restaurants and Delores park a short walk away. We literally could not believe our luck when we walked through the door.

Maya's place was absolute heaven. A perfect place for my family and I to all meet up for the weekend. We were given a warm welcome and Maya went above and beyond our expectations. The kid friendly aspect of her home was extra wonderful. We are all so grateful for this memorable weekend.

My family really enjoyed our stay! We loved the neighborhood and to get away from the tourist area. Lots of great restaurants nearby. Maya's home was very clean, comfortable, and her communication and guidebook made for a really great stay. Awesome place, location, and view. Like most of San Fran, there are a lot of hills in the neighborhood. Public transit or Uber might be a good option for those who aren't up for the challenge of the hills.

Great place and location. My family and I stayed at Maya's home for 5 nights in July 2017. The home is spectacular...great layout, tons of space, a true gourmet kitchen, steam shower and many other comforts. The location is ideal, central to many different areas and a short walk to Dolores park. Our kids really enjoyed the fantastic playground at the park. We highly recommend Maya's home and will plan to stay there the next time we visit San Fran.
