The space

Sublet available

My beautiful roomie is going to be away for a bit and she is looking to sublet her beautiful furnished room in our charming Edwardian SHOELESS apartment in the sunny Castro. Our apartment is located four blocks away from the main drag so it's central but also quiet...and there is PLENTY of street parking (unless there is a parade or something then it gets a bit harder but that's seldom).

The underground Muni is a 5 minute walk, the 33 bus (also Muni) runs right in front of our house. There is a supermarket that stays open late, post office, 24 hour Walgreens, and a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. The Castro theatre and all the charm of the neighborhood is at your reach.

The room boasts big east facing windows, hardwood floors, and a queens size mattress.

This neighborhood is perfect for those traveling without a car as it's convenient to public transportation and unlike most neighborhoods in SF, it is SUPER easy to catch a cab (the closest to NYC you will get in SF). You are two stops away from Civic Center, three stops from Union Square, and you are within walking distance to Dolores Park and the Mission District. The closest BART station is 16th st/Mission and SFO airport is a convenient 15-20 minute ride away. If you do have a car, you are in incredible luck as parking is miraculously easy on the streets where we live.

Feel free to relax in the common space. The spacious living room is big and we have a TV where you can enjoy watching a DVD or listening to music on our system. Please note that we do not have cable TV, but the last thing you want to do in SF is watch TV anyway -- there's so much to do!

You will also be sharing a full size bathroom with tub, spacious kitchen with dishwasher and instant hot water faucet, washer outside on our porch (no dryer). Wireless internet and utilities included.

Hardwood floors throughout. Shoeless home please. :-)

If you are interested, please message me with the following:
1. A little bit about yourself
2. Purpose of the sublet

Thank you and happy traveling!

Elena is a fantastic host who will go above and beyond to ensure your stay is awesome! Note: It is on the third floor of the apartment up stairs so it might be hard to bring up heavy luggage.

I had a good stay at Elena's apartment, despite the apartment lacking a washing machine as advertised. The home is in a beautiful location in one of the best neighborhoods (safe and beautiful area), and close to shops, restaurants and parks. Elena was very open and communicative,…

Response from Elena:
Omg, Io I'm so sorry! The washing machine is in the back porch! I had no idea you didn't know about it! I wish you asked me! You had a clothes rack in your room to dry clothes and there is another clothes rack in the living room where there were often clothes drying. I had no idea you didn't see it ! We all use it all the time! I'm so sorry you had this experience.

I spent three and a half months in Elena’s place. It’s a lovely space in a great neighborhood—just far enough from the Castro that things stay quiet, but an incredibly short walk to get to the action. It’s also near some beautiful hills—a fifteen minute walk will get you to a vie…

Elena was the best host I ever had. She was very kind, helpful and made me feel like home. The room was amazing, also the hole apartment, like in the discription. The apartment is located in the beautiful mission-district. Definitely recommend this place.
