Cozy studio guest suite/apartment, with separate entrance. Bathroom w/shower, large closet (8x3 ft), small kitchenette. Very quiet. Away from street. Private outdoor area. In Polk & Chestnut area, close to great restaurants/cafes, easy walk to Aquatic Park and Ghirardelli Square.
Please keep the bathroom window open slightly (or keep the fan on in the bathroom during and after showering) so the humidity does not build up. Thank you!
Originally from Canada, I first came to San Francisco to finish my surgical training at UCSF in the late 1990s, when I moved into the walkup townhouse complex that this studio is a part of. My landlord passed away while I lived there, and I loved the area and the apartment so much that I somehow managed to buy the property from his estate and continued to live there for many years. I now teach surgical residents for UCSF at their campus in Oakland and have a private practice in Union Square, San Francisco. I have taught surgery and been part of medical missions around the world (Papua New Guinea, Guatemala, Nicaragua, New Zealand, Australia, Canada - including the true "Great White North" around Hudson's Bay). I love to travel to ski, dive, kite board, surf and explore far-off lands and love to visit my family in Toronto and Vancouver - but every time I come home to San Francisco, I take a deep breath and appreciate how fortunate I am to live here!
