Perfect experience. The house is beautiful and has everything you want. Checking in and out was quite easy. I met Penelope briefly and she and her husband are lovely. I'm so thankful we found an affordable and wonderful place in the Mission!

We enjoyed staying at Penelope's beautiful apartment! Inspiring style and an overall welcome feeling. Highly recommended to explore the colorful neighborhood and the rest of San Francisco.

This is an absolutely lovely place and everything was as described by Penelope! We didn't see her as she was out of town but she was easy to get hold of and very helpful every time we needed her. We felt very comfortable, welcome and at home here.

Penelope's place was great. We enjoyed the neighborhood very much. Close distance to many restaurants and bars. The space itself was very comfortable. The rooms get very dark so great sleep! Loved the decor!

Penelope was absolutely great! She provided really detailed, organized information promptly so I had no questions left to ask her! The house is stunning. It is quintessential San Francisco, a little quirky, creative, and beautifully executed. We spent our entire stay there wondering if there was a way we could rent out a room long-term, and if so, who would get it :) It is also an amazing location - right next to the mission and all its shops and restaurants, as well as right next to the highway to minimize fighting through hilly, city traffic.

We loved spending the July 4 weekend in the Mission at this comfortable, convenient home. Penelope sent detailed instructions in advance and left a welcoming note with a few more. The house was completely comfortable for our group of three, our niece taking the smaller of the two bedrooms. The beds are very firm and low to the floor. The home is simply and tastefully decorated, completely comfortable, with plenty of hot water and excellent kitchen appliances. (Notes for those who care: no microwave. French press and pour-over coffee gear, but no drip coffeemaker.) The location is great, a short walk from a choice area of 24th Street (St. Francis Fountain, Mexican bakeries, great coffee, and the amazing street art of Balmy Alley). The July 4 neighborhood fireworks were loud and relentless until shortly after midnight, but they didn't detract from our experience, and every other night was quiet. There's a lovely little back-yard garden with a "cabana" building—a comfy sofa and small desk with comfortable office chair. It's a great spot for morning coffee or bring-your-laptop email. Wifi works nicely throughout the property. Parking is effortless (can't often say that in San Francisco!), because you can park in front of the house's garage without being ticketed or towed. We loved this place and Penelope was a terrific host. We'll certainly consider returning!

My husband and I adore San Francisco and have called the Mission District home for decades. We love traveling and meeting people.

You'll find us bicycling around the city, enjoying local theater and art, hosting dinner parties and events in our one-of-a-kind house. We also like to get outdoors for horseback riding, hiking or foraging. Our home garden is full of herbs we cook with, and native flowering plants that attract hummingbirds, native bees, and colorful jays and warblers.
