About this listing
Welcome to my place and your temporary home! I'm located in one of the most desirable areas for visitors in San Francisco; close to Fisherman's Wharf, Marina, Crissy Field, the Presidio and downtown shopping district - Union Square area.
This home is located in a convenient location (easy walk to Chrissy Field, Fort Mason, Golden Gate Bridge, America's Cup Pavollion), also close to public transportation. Near Union & Chestnut streets - basically this is one of the most desirable locations in San Francisco!
It's a comfortable flat with all the amenities for a comfortable stay in San Francisco. The guest bedroom is very cozy with a queen bed. comfortable dining/tv room, very well equiped kitchen. This flat is in an old Edwardian bldg so has features unique to that time and style, such as a split bathroom: the tub/shower and sink are in one room and the toilet is in a separate room.
Up tp 2 people, no pets, no smoking!
You'll have access to the large, well-equipped kitchen, TV room/dining room, and shared bath.
I do live in the flat so our interaction could be frequent or infrequent - mostly it depends on your needs.
The Cow Hollow area is surrounded by some of the best neighborhoods for shopping, dining, walking ... just across Van Ness is the Polk St area, then a bit further west is Pacific Heights with some of the most fantastic homes in all of San Francisco. More to the north (toward the Golden Gate bridge), you'll find the Marina and Chestnut street, Crissy Field and the Golden Gate Bridge ... What I've always loved about living in this neighborhood is the variety of people you meet - it has the energy of the young people, the stability of the longer term residents and always exciting restaurants, shopping or just sitting on my front steps in the sun!
At the corner of Van Ness and Union Streets, there are frequent buses that can take you downtown to Union Square, to a convenient BART station (on Van Ness & Market), and on weekends to Rodeo Beach in Marin. Additional bus service is available which can take you to Marin and to Santa Rosa.
I like to provide a light breakfast - at least on your first day here - coffee/tea, croissants, juice. Please let me know what you prefer. I do have a small dog, Izzy, who is very friendly.
There aren't a lot of 'rules,'. No smoking and no pets. If you want to cook, please remember to cut things on the cutting board, not on the butcher-block table. When you have dirty dishes, either wash them and put them in the drainer or in the dishwasher. And please put your wet towels, etc., on the racks in the bathroom or hang them on the back of your bedroom door. Please don't put wet/damp towels on furniture. Also, if you use any products that might stain, please ask me for a different set of towels (white) so none of the guest linens are stained.
The bedroom door leads directly to the hallway, with the bathroom just a few steps away.
