The space

The cottage was renovated and decorated in August 2011 and it looks stunning. I'm a builder and I live on the property. I have years of experience creating wonderful spaces in San Francisco. The sunny private garden is the highlight of the space.

We'd love to have you as our guest in our secluded, light-filled cottage in the very best hood in SF, near the Castro, Mission and Dolores Park. The cottage is free-standing, quiet, light-filled and opens up to a private landscaped garden. Truly a unique and charming space.

Matt's cottage was a nice spot to hanging out while visiting SF. It was very spacious for one person and was fairly close to groceries and transport. The neighborhood itself is quiet but also a short walk to bars.
