LOCATION DESCRIPTION Neighborhood: HAYES VALLEY This vacation rental is located in Hayes Valley. The Hayes Valley commercial sector doesn't have the historic feel that many older neighborhoods have - it is young in age, but adult in style. As a destination, it serves theater and symphony patrons as well as high-end fashion and furnishing shoppers. Prior to the 1989 earthquake, this area's proximity to the freeway off-ramp made it an undesirable area. After the damaged section of freeway was removed, it cleared the way in the 1990s for growth and trendification. PARKING SITUATION Parking is included. Driveway in front of the garage door. Might not fit SUVs and other large cars.

Location, location, location... This apartment was in a great location. With a convenience store right across the street and a bakery down the road. You are never more than a few minutes away from everything. Why cramp your family in a hotel room when you could be in a three bedroom apartment. You can wash clothes while relaxing inside instead of hanging out in a laundry room. Having a parking stall was a huge plus. The only thing you may have concerns with is if you have young children who are not used to steep stairs or if you yourself have trouble with stairs this may not be for you. The bedrooms are upstairs. If this is not a concern, then this was a great value. After a long day of sightseeing, it was great to come to a home that we could truly relax in. If you are planning on visiting, I would recommend staying here. I know where I will be when I go back.

We stayed at this fabulous house with three kids (including two little ones) and it was great. It was really funky and I mean that in the best possible way. We were attending the Fancy Food show at the Moscone Center and it was an easy commute back and forth. The house is comfortable, spacious, close to lots of amenities, including a great neighborhood park and incredible restaurants. This was the best way to stay in the city and made us feel more like residents - we were ready to move in! There is parking which made it so much easier. The beds were comfortable. We had never done a home rental in another city before and we were more than happy with this experience.
