- Bright sun and lovely views from giant windows, with the bay to the east and red rock hills to the west
- An oasis of quiet in the midst of the best location the city has to offer
- Separate bedroom with full closet, and ridiculously comfortable, brand new memory foam bed, space for suitcases underneath
- Freshly renovated, full size and well equipped eat-in kitchen
- A selection of teas are provided

PLEASE NOTE: We love kids, but unfortunate experiences with prior guests have forced us to ask that if you are traveling with children under 18, please send us a note to give us a sense of their noise and activity level. We have an elderly tenant and require reasonable quiet hours from 9pm-9am, and have experienced that toddlers and small children are generally not the right fit for our space.

All of the above is amazing, but what really sets this place apart is the attention to detail, with high quality designer appointments throughout, making it the ideal short term stay:
- Vintage Eames chairs
- A mix of vintage George Nelson, Robert Sonneman, Scandinavian and new Tom Dixon lighting
- Many local artists' work - discover a souvenir you'll love years later!
- Vintage scandinavian furnishings, with fresh new upholstery
- All new appliances- refrigerator, dishwasher, range, microwave, toaster, ceramic burr coffee grinder and automatic pour-over machine
- Sharp Wusthof knives (Don't you hate cheap vacation rental knives? One of our pet peeves.)
- Clean bone china and handmade ceramic dishes
- Professional grade, heavy triple-ply stainless clad cookware (No cheap pots and pans! Another peeve.)
- Warm, hypoallergenic bedding provided
- All natural, soft 100% cotton sheets and towels (No hot "microfiber")
- Non-toxic soaps, cleansers and disinfectants provided
- New iron and full-size ironing board
- Lots of full-size wooden hangers
- Ready for the perfect vacation or relaxing corporate rental/relocation

This is a lovely little one bedroom on a great street with an unbeatable location. Bedroom is quiet. Living/dining area is light-filled and comfortable. Kitchen is very well-equipped. We stayed here for three months, loved every minute of our time and the apartment was a central happy note.

We had an absolutely wonderful month long stay at Joy & Peter's. We are from the east coast and were looking for a place that gave us the ability to explore San Francisco as a potential new home. The location, the layout and how it was equipped was perfect. It truly felt like our home for the month. The details we received prior to arrival were great - no issues at all accessing the property. Joy was also extremely attentive to any questions we had. I would highly recommend Joy and Peter's place to anyone looking to explore some of the most beautiful places in San Francisco.

We stayed at Joy's place for an extended period as we were settling into the city and we could have not picked a more ideal place! It's in a fantastic location: close to transport, cafes and restaurants but on a quiet and safe neighborhood street. The apartment was thoughtfully furnished with little touches that made the stay more enjoyable (a comfortable bed, a spare toothbrush in case you forgot your own). Check-in was easy and Joy was always a text or phonecall away.

From the art on the walls (am going to get the bear-hugging-California print for sure!) to the handthrown turquoise mugs, this is the most distinctive and lovely apartment I've stayed in on Airbnb. Joy and Pete trust us with their treasures, and that makes for a special stay. Location was perfect, both for walking and public transport. And so close to Bi-Rite Market, Tartine and Delfina -- food lover's heaven.

The place was welcoming and clean. It was a great spot for my parents and sister to stay while visiting.

What a fantastic experience! Joy and Peter were very friendly, welcoming and available to answer any questions. Their home is perfect for a couple's getaway and perfectly located between the Mission and Castro. The apartment is beautifully decorated and there is SO much light and air in the kitchen and living areas. Looking forward to returning on our next trip back to San Francisco.
