The apartment has wireless internet, a stereo system, a large HD-TV, DVD Player, and cable TV. There is a private parking spot for 1 car in front of the garden gate. This is a very cosy house, with a big outdoor area in the middle of the city, with stunning views of Cole Valley and the ocean, walking distance to some of the best restaurants and cafes in the city. Evening sunsets looking toward Point Bonita are an unforgettable treat. If you have questions, please respond to this posting by email.
Though most visitors never make it past the restaurants and shops, Cole Valley does offer dramatic views of the city. The best spot is atop 600-foot-high Tank Hill (about 50 yards uphill from the house), named for an old water tank stationed there in the late 1800s. The eucalyptus trees there were planted after the attack on Pearl Harbor to hide the water tank from bombers. To get to the hill's summit and panoramic viewpoint, walk up Shrader Street to Belgrave Street and turn left, taking it to the end.
Cole Valley may be one of the city's most interesting tourist destinations, while it makes for a relaxing respite from the Haight, and there are enough attractions for a day's outing. Food and coffee are the specialties in Cole Valley. In the three-block commercial strip along Cole Street and part of Carl Street, there are more than a dozen restaurants and cafés, some of which draw visitors from around the Bay Area.
Moving around by public transportation is easy fron Cole Valley. Just jumping in the Muni underground tramway system and you are downtown San Francisco in about 10 minutes. Cole Valley is 5 mns walking distance from the Golden Gate Park, and a 10 mn drive to the beach.
