Welcome to my Marina apartment! This studio apartment has been turned into a jr. one bedroom, as the bed is cleverly relocated in a huge walk in closet to make for an amazing main living room and private bedroom. The building was built in the early 1900's and has quaint turn-of-the-century architectural details, such as original hardwood floors and high ceilings. The tenants are quiet and keep to themselves. The apartment is hotel clean.
This area of the city is VERY safe and is an easy walk to the Golden Gate Bridge, Chrissy Field, The Palace of Fine Arts and dozens of fabulous (world class) restaurants, bars and shopping. There is a Walgreens Pharmacy across the street as well as two movie theaters on Chestnut Street. (apartment is on Divisadero Street @ Chestnut Street) The demographic is 24-45 but there are people of all ages here.
The living room is bright and clean. The sofa and chairs are all custom, designed by Kelly Keiser. There is a small tv, hulu, apple tv, netflix and cable as well as wireless. The library wall is filled with beautiful interior design books, all of which you are welcome to comb thru while staying at the apartment. There is a desk with a monitor, which you are welcome to plug into. The Apple store is just down the street two blocks if you need any apple items during your stay.
Cleverly located in a huge walk in closet, there is plenty of room to relax in this room. Soft and luxurious bedding makes for a good nights sleep. This apartment is VERY QUIET, as it is on the back side of the building. The bedroom doors shut to close this room off completely from the rest of the house and making the bedroom very nest like. Fresh (new) bedding and pillows are atop a Temperpedic mattress and I have added a feather down pillow top on top of the Temperpedic, making this bed extra cozy.
The full kitchen features a table and two chairs for dining and a refrigerator for you to store your food items. The Marina Supermarket is on the same block as the apartment so some people like to grab breakfast items for their stay. There is a french coffee press as well as a Brita water filtration system.
The bathroom is original with deco tile in the shower. The tub is also original (cast iron) so I have added a floor to ceiling shower curtain to keep the bathroom looking up-to-date. The bathroom is stocked with extra tp and ceramic jars with items like cotton balls and q-tips. Fluffy white towels are also provided.
The bus stop is across the street from the apartment and there is a ZipCar lot just next door to the building.

Kelly's place is awesome! Beautifully done with a great bath and comfortable bed. Lovely touches to make us feel welcome. It was the perfect base for our first trip to San Francisco, near the sea and in such a great district with the axing Chestnut street on the doorstep - great shopping, coffee shops and restaurants. Kelly was easily contactable if we needed which made everything very easy.
Perfect apt for me! I am a former SF resident that was in town for a few days for work. Hotels were expensive & I decided to give Airbnb a whirl. I was NERVOUS! I knew I wanted to stay in the Marina (or Cow Hollow or Pac Heights).
Kelly's apt is clean, cute & comfortable. Quiet for the city. It's located off the street & you don't have the bus noise which is a plus. It's SF small w/ great charm. Perfect for a single girl or good for a couple that will be out & about & simply using the place to sleep & shower. I would definitely stay there again!
If you are unfamiliar w/ SF or this particular neighborhood ... This is a terrific location. You will really get a sense of being a part of city living. Walgreens is across the street for forgotten toiletries, meds, water etc. Easy access to tourist (& local) sights such as the Palace of Fine Arts, Crissy Field & Golden Gate Bridge. Muni & Golden Gate transit are nearby. Chestnut Street is full of good places to eat, grab a drink and shop. Plenty of people watching.
Kelly's place was great! i and my friend loved it!
close to lots of bars and nice restaurants and especially to the beach...only a stroll to reach the golden gate bridge and lots of parks. Very secure and silent, the apartment has got any type of comfort and facility and Kelly gets back to you quickly in case of questions.
I would definitely reccomend this to anyone, couples, friends etc...
Loved the place and San Francisco!
I had so much fun staying in Kelly's beautiful apartment. SF is such a fantastic city and would definitely stay at this flat again. Kelly was a lovely host and very reliable.
Lovely little apartment in a really beautiful / interesting part of the city. Chestnut St, right around the corner, is a hive of nice restaurants, coffee shops, & bakeries + a cinema; Chrissy field -- with views over Golden Gate bridge -- is a 5/10 minute stroll away.
Apartment might be a little cramped for a family, but is perfect for a business traveller or couple.
Kelly's apartment was amazing - fantastic location, beautifully decorated, and perfect for a 9-day stay in San Francisco. She was responsive when we had questions and very helpful.
Our stay at Kelly's apartment was great. She was easy to get in touch with and responded to our emails promptly. Kelly's apartment was in the perfect location for our stay. It was walking distance to great shops, restaurants, and transportation. Her apartment was so pretty, clean, and very comfortable! We highly recommend Kelly and this apartment!
Thank you Kelly!
Kelly's place was awesome - a real haven to come back to after a day watching the Americas Cup at Marina Green.
The apartment was a perfect little gem and there were lovely touches like the welcome basket. Fantastic after a long flight.
Also Kelly was really accommodating on the last day when I had a NZ conference call in the late afternoon.
Loved looking after Czar for the afternoon - a perfect gentleman
Would definitely book again - if we are in the Cup again
Kelly's place was like something out of a European decor magazine.. It was as clean as a boutique hotel when I arrived, fresh towels and linens and cute welcome notes with instructions posted around the apartment.
The neighborhood is fantastic, everything you need is within a 4 block radius. Kelly was so helpful and so quick to respond during my 3 weeks stay, I was sad to leave!
I highly recommend this place to anyone, or any couple wishing to get a true taste of San Francisco's Marina. I would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thanks Kelly!!
