Space Our home is located on a nature preserve but close to the city. You get the solitude, the wildlife, a park like setting and the views but also the proximity to world class restaurants and entertainment in San Francisco, all at an affordable price. We have just remodeled our home with cork and tile flooring and in an eco friendly manner with materials from Ecohome improvement (a well regarded Berkeley store) that provides health/environmentally conscious materials. We also have a mattress made out of organic cotton and we feature an allergen free home. This apartment is on the lower level of our home. The kitchen is small but adequate for very light cooking (dorm fridge, induction cookplate, microwave, there is a large capacity freezer in the laundry room).

You get the solitude, the wildlife, a park like setting and the views but also the proximity to world class restaurants and entertainment in San Francisco, all at an affordable price. We have just remodeled our home with cork and tile flooring and in an eco friendly manner with materials from Ecohome improvement (a well regarded Berkeley store) that provides health/environmentally conscious materials. We also have a mattress made out of organic cotton and we feature an allergen free home. This apartment is on the lower level of our home. The kitchen is small but adequate for very light cooking (dorm fridge, induction cookplate, microwave, there is a large capacity freezer in the laundry room). The bathroom is full size and has a jacuzzi tub. The living room has flat panel tv with Roku channels (netflix, hbo go, etc.). We also have high speed internet (100+mbps, the highest speed comcast offers currently). We strive to provide an allergen free environment and we do not accept smoking (please do not bring marijuana or cigarettes, etc.) or animals of any kind (including service animals). My wife is extremely allergic to pet dander and for health reasons and safety of our guests we cannot accept any animals inside the home. Guest access Guests also have access to the San Bruno mountains on our private road. There is brand new modern high capacity washer and dryer in the apartment. We have a crib as well for those folks that are coming with babies (we understand, we have two of our own). Guest interaction I am available by phone, email, text. We also have a property manager and my wife is also available to answer questions. Neighborhood overview Brisbane is a unique town, diverse in spirit, relatively small but but surrounded by nature and the location is unbeatable. With great access to transportation, SF airport, San Francisco and the peninsula it provides a unique location for visitors to the bay area that would like to be close to our famous tourist sites but would like to enjoy the peace and quiet of a small town with amazing views of the bay, the city and San Bruno mountains. Brisbane is a small town and although we do not have as many dining choices as SF does due to its proximity to it you can experience a tasty SF treat in the middle of the woods through grubhub. Grubhub delivers food for free from local restaurants so you can have the best of both worlds, amazing food from local SF restaurants in the middle of the woods. Getting around There is a free commuter shuttle (about a 10 min walk from the house), which will take you to BART or Caltrain.Bart, Caltrain, buses are nearby, however not as convenient as having your own car. Please keep in mind that you would have to walk for 10 min up a steep hill from the bus station. Should you rent a car there is plenty of off street, free parking on our private road. Other ways to get around are Uber/Lyft (an app you can download on your Smartphone). easy access to 101. Other things to note This is a completely separate apartment with its own kitchen and bathroom. The home has 3 apartments and this is one of the 3 apartments. If you are interested in booking the whole home you may do so through a separate listing. Small supermarket downtown. Some selection of organic foods. Madhouse Coffee: a good place for coffee and breakfast. Authentic mexican restaurant downtown, not great but better than other restaurants in town. The vietnamese restaurant as well has decent, cheap sandwiches and pho. Farmers market: every thursday afternoon (downtown Brisbane). I will email check in instructions to everyone with details about the house, directions, etc. One thing to note which is repeated several times throughout our description is that our house is on the hill and it's secluded. Therefore, some folks have found that driving up a hill might not be to their taste. San Francisco, Brisbane and a lot of other towns in the Bay Area have homes on the hill. That fact adds to the charm for some folks and for others it's a driving challenge. We kindly ask our guests that read through and try to follow our house rules. The cleaning fees go 100% to our housekeeper and we cover ourselves laundry costs, supply costs, cable, gas, electricity, water, internet, trash, sewer fees, taxes, etc and also our contribute our own time towards hosting related activities. We hope to continue to keep our rates affordable but we've had to come up with these few guidelines over time to make it feasible for us to continue to host. More

The apartment was just as described. Two bedrooms with a living room and kitchen. The apartment was clean and the owner was helpful and responded quickly when we had queries. The description was ‘cozy’ But by UK standards it was certainly big enough. And the...More
