Help with holiday rental

Hi please could I have the forums help with the following rental https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/808771 If any one could advise on this area and property it would be appreciated. We would be looking for a lively area with restaurants and a few bars which this seems to have? Thanks

It's not really a touristy area, more residential - about 11 blocks from the BART station at 24th and Mission from what I can tell on the map. The 48 MUNI bus runs up and down 24th street, but it's a great street for wandering as well.

The famous Balmy Alley (http://www.balmyalley.com/Welcome.html) murals are in that area, and you'll find other examples of murals around there. http://www.precitaeyes.org

There's a Walgreen's about two blocks away (drugstore/chemist), a laundromat about a block away, and some great Mexican food in the area along 24th Street. The area is rapidly gentrifying, but there are still pockets of crime, particularly near the Garfield Square park. Stick to 24th Street and you should be fine.

Would I stay there? Sure. Use your city street smarts and you'll be fine.

The AirBnB listing indicates that the flat is on York St. Further the listing indicates "we love everything the 24th St. corridor has to offer." Taking a stroll via Google Street View I believe I found it on York between 24th and 25th (it looks a bit different because the image is a few years old).

IMO this is too close to various projects and other issues (including SF General Hospital which is the city's trauma center -- so there may be sirens audible at all times of day and night). This isn't the section of 24th Street I'd want to be on.

your first link in a different post of a place in the Marina (not withstanding the fact that it is not available) was a much better location

If the location is as WD called out - it's not great for a visitor. I used to work near York, but closer to 16th Street. That whole are is very residential with some commercial and industrial thrown in. Not the easiest location to get around from - mainly relying on crowded buses. I would keep looking.

Thank you for the replies. We have decided to go with location over anything else. We have this property in mind http://www.vrbo.com/12818# The address is 1937 Mason St., SF, CA. If anyone can give me advice on this property it would be appreciated.

Both of those locations would be better than the York Street location for a visitor. They're both in the heart of North Beach (well, the liver of North Beach, but very close to the heart).

The Mason Street location is directly on the cable car line, so it would be noisier than the one on Filbert.
