JUNE 2016:
Mindy & Family - It's my very first experience using airbnb. This place is very nice and it's in a safe neighborhood. Spacious for 4 people, very clean, full kitchen. My family said they would love to stay there longer if they are staying in the city. Highly recommend.

The space

JUNE 2014:
Rachel & Family - Jon & Christine's place was amazing! Such a wonderful location, super safe neighborhood, and walking distance to GG park! The place was so clean and everything we needed was available for us to use. The beds were comfy and there is a lovely back patio/yard area with lots of natural light. It was a wonderful place to come home to after a day out and about exploring SF. Jon & Christine were super helpful whenever we had any questions and always responded in a timely fashion. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to any of our friends!

From Spanish Conquistadores to Star Wars

If the San Francisco Peninsula resembles a forearm ending in a fist, then the Presidio is the topmost knuckle-by-the-Bay. The virile park of viridian woods and knockout vistas can make travelers forget its original function was for war, not Instagram. To San Franciscans, it's both muse and playground—with the latest addition being the newly reopened Officers' Club, reimagined as a local hub for exhibits, performances, and dining.

Established by Spanish conquistadores in 1776, the military garrison of Saint Francis and its 2.3 square miles defended the bay from any invaders tempted by the riches of Alta California. For the next 218 years, soldiers stood guard against the machinations of empires. But the English, Russian, Japanese, and Klingons—Star Trek's Starfleet Command is headquartered here—never came. The base became a coveted (website hidden) assignment. Officers dream of three things, the saying went: “to make colonel, to die and go to heaven, and to be posted to the Presidio."

In 1994, ownership passed from the Army to the National Park Service. Now the Presidio is a self-sustaining trust, thanks to rents paid by one-percenters like George Lucas, whose Lucasfilms office here blessed with a Yoda sculpture on a fountain. (Critics prefer sculptor Andy Goldsworthy's nearly hundred-foot-tall “Spire," near the Arguello Gate.) But why nitpick? Instead, savor a hot chocolate after a hike on Crissy Field. Listen for the whiz-whir generated by bikers pumping down Lincoln Boulevard above North Baker Beach's clothing-optional sunbathers. Delight in the eucalyptus-scented footpath called Lovers Lane. The Presidio, young Skywalker! The Force is strong with this one. —Andrew Nelson, @andrewnelson

Travel Tips

When to Go: April, May, October, and November typically are the best months to visit due to the warm, sunny weather and minimal fog (providing better views of the Golden Gate Bridge). Weekdays are less crowded.

How to Get Around: From San Francisco International Airport rent a car, or ride BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) to the Embarcadero station. From here (at the corner of Drumm and Market Streets), take the free Presidio shuttle bus (9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m on weekends).

Where to Eat or Drink: Housed in the former mess hall, The Commissary at the Presidio serves light breakfasts, eat-in and takeout lunches, and a full dinner menu (reservations recommended). Award-winning chef Traci Des Jardins mainly uses locally sourced ingredients to prepare the Spanish-influenced California cuisine (salt cod fritters, Marin Sun Farms burgers, and roasted chicken with Marcona almonds and dates). Most seating is communal. To watch the chefs prepare your meal, request a (email hidden) surrounding the open kitchen.

What to Buy: At the Presidio, Warming Hut Bookstore and Café, located at the west end of Crissy Field; the Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion; and the Fort Point Bookstore have the best selection of Presidio-related souvenirs, gear, and books.

Practical Tip: To stay warm (and avoid looking like a tourist) wear long pants and several light layers if visiting the Presidio in summer (June-August) when the weather is typically cold and foggy.

What to Read Before You Go: Set at the Presidio, The Enlisted Men's Club (Running Meter Press, 2014) is the first in a trilogy of military-life novels penned by late author and Vietnam War veteran Gary Reilly.

Fun Fact: Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, the executive order authorizing the internment of Japanese Americans was issued at the Presidio. At the same time that their family members were being relocated to internment camps, Japanese-American linguist soldiers were training at the Presidio for critical military language duties such as translation and negotiation. The soldiers' training site, which reopened in 2013 as the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) Historic Learning Center, is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays, 12-5 p.m.

Insider Tip From Andrew Nelson: Got a yen for nine pins? The old army base supports its own late bowling alley. Presidio Bowl is open every day and until 2 a.m. on the weekends.

(Note: In the other direction, we are 5 minutes to Golden Gate Park, another National Park with museums, gardens, etc. Our home is located 2 blocks to The Presidio & about 8 blocks to Golden Gate Park).

Great location and size. We went with an active toddler, and the place was safe and pretty much child friendly. Great to have a washer/dryer, even though the drying function takes almost 3 hours for a handful of clothes. If you're a light sleeper, note that the floors are creaky, above and below, as are the beds.

Christine’s place is small and basic but nice and located walking distance from both Golden Gate Park and the Presidio on a quiet street. It worked nicely for us as a base of operations for our trip to San Francisco. Kitchen and bathroom were small but perfect for our needs. Christine and Jon were terrific hosts with great communication and responsiveness.

Great place to stay with accommodating host. Wish we had more than just 1 night in SF

Unit is clean; it is located on the ground floor. There are two beds, each in the two bedrooms, and there's a futon in the living room. Finding a parking spot on the unit's street can be a bit tough (like many streets in SF); drive around a bit to find a spot. There is a pay parking garage around the corner, however. The neighborhood is quiet. The unit is a couple of blocks from Geary St which has restaurants, coffee shops, a pharmacy, and a retail store all within a short walking distance from the unit. Our general stay was comfortable and Christine and Jon were accommodating as hosts.

This is a functional place to crash at the end of a day of exploring. The apartment is nothing fancy but it has everything you need to cook a meal and relax at the end of the day. The neighborhood is quiet and residential but walking distance to restaurants, shops and Golden Gate park. Christine was very easy to communicate with and timely in her responses. Would stay there again

Accommodating hosts with a great location to catch a bus to all major attractions. Room and board was comparable to a hotel with all the amenities of home. We would definitely stay here again!!!
