About This Listing
2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)
A cute 1910s house, in the trendy Cow Hollow/Marina neighborhood of San Francisco - between Russian Hill and The Presidio, walking distance from the San Francisco Bay, two blocks from Union St., twenty minutes pleasant walk through Fort Mason park to Fisherman's Wharf, close to the Palace of Arts and the Exploratorium. This area is really safe, pretty, and close to the Bay/Crissy Field. The intersection of Union St and Steiner St is one of many hubs of activity in this neighborhood. The #'s 22, 41, and 45 buses pass by this intersection. It also has many restaurants, bars, wine bars, boutiques, etc nearby. There is also a church on this corner, if you're into that (and this church does NOT have annoying/loud bells, so no worries there!)
Also, it is an ideal location for day trips to other parts of the SF Bay Area. The house has a beautiful fenced front yard, a private backyard patio and parking in the front yard behind the gate. The house has 2 separate floors/flats with 2 separate entrances; they are not connected. The second floor, which we offer to our guests, has got the original douglas fir hardwood floors and lots of windows. It has 2 bedrooms (very quiet), a sun room with a futon and double pane windows, living room, kitchen, mini office by the kitchen and one bathroom. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and a 52' HDTV. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, dining table, and connects to the sun room with a sliding door. We have a small office space by the kitchen with wireless internet. The kitchen and the living room are divided by a bar from where you can comfortably watch shows on the huge flat screen HDTV or Blu-Ray disks, or you can do so from the living room. The house was remodeled in 2009 - all stainless steel appliances, furniture, countertops, and other amenities are new.
Corporate rentals are welcome.
NON SMOKING PROPERTY! Neither in the house nor in the front yard (the adjacent property bedroom windows are above our front yard)
caring people only
The unit was clean upon arrival and location was good, and we generally enjoyed our stay. It was great that parking was available to us, however, it was not clear that it was tandem and we were blocking the hosts car in. It was inconvenient when we decided to not drive our car and leave it at the unit, as the host had a guest who needed to leave the unit as we were blocking them in. We had to go back to unit and wait for the guest to leave which could have been better handled. I would appreciate it if the host would notify us and future guests about this situation as it is an inconvenience to the guest to have to come back to the unit to move their car, it only worked out as we were dining nearby. Apart from that, the host was friendly and helped us with our popped tyre situation, we really appreciated that.
Nice, clean space, plenty of room to relax after a long day! Really quiet as its set back from the street, and while we didn't end up using the parking, it was nice to know it was there if we needed it. Would definitely stay here again, Mariana was a fantastic host.
Excellent directions and instructions on what to do once we arrived.
House was exactly as described...beautiful!
Perfect for two couples, within walking distance to most attractions.
Area restaurants and bars were wonderful.
We would stay here again on a return visit.
We, a family of three, rented the apartment for three nights.
It is a perfect place to spent some quality time in San Fran. It is within walking distance to the bayside and using the buses was easy and convenient.
We found the house just as described, very clean and roomy. The house has a spacious living room including an open and well equiped kitchen.
Mariana is very communicative, everything went just as it should have. Her advices for restaurants and grocery stores were really useful. Try Green's restaurant!
We would certainly come back once we make it again to this beautiful and lovely city, so different from other cities in the states.
Mariana was a wonderful host. She responded immediately to our many emails in spite of travelling abroad. We had problems with our internet but she was very patient with all our problems.
The house was clean, comfortable, very quiet in spite of builders next door, the parking was a bonus and Mariana's suggestions and details of local restaurants and tourist opportunities was very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
