The apartment had most everything we needed in it, and the location was, as promised, really fantastic. As a woman traveling alone, I loved how safe I felt walking around at night -- and that everything I needed was right around the corner: Safeway, Starbucks, dry cleaners, cafe. Lots of fantastic restaurants and clubs were just a few blocks away, and the ocean was one block over. If you like to walk, you are also walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge -- truly the best location of any place I've stayed in San Francisco. I also greatly appreciated the safe underground parking (gated and locked with a separate key).
The apartment itself is more of a studio than a 1 BR (no wall between the bedroom and the living room/dining room/kitchen, the apartment is really just one large L-shaped room). But the kitchen and bathroom were *sparkling* clean, and the kitchen featured a dishwasher, microwave, oven and garbage disposal, plus bowls, pans, dishes and glasses. The private patio provides very nice extra space (plus lets a lovely breeze into the apartment when it gets stuffy) and features a working grill and a large table with comfy chairs. Also, the heated pool is right outside the patio door, which makes it easy to take a quick swim even when it's cold outside.
Sonny, our host, went out of his way to ensure we had a nice stay -- he left us brand new towels and the bed made up with fresh sheets, made room in his closets for our clothes and left us plenty of extra hangers. He even wrote up a 3-4 page list of ideas and suggestions for making the most of the apartment and the neighborhood. This is a bachelor pad, so it is very basic (I couldn't find an iron, a blow dryer or a pot big enough for spaghetti, for example), but if you just need a cozy place to sleep, an efficient kitchen, and a shower with great water pressure in a super neighborhood -- plus a private deck and heated pool right outside your door -- at a great price, then this place is for you.
Sonny's place is ideal for visitors to San Francisco. He has a beautiful bay view and is within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, North Beach, Lombard Steet, Crissy Fields, and a lot more. The Marina area has a lot of great restaurants to explore as well.
Sonny's 1 bedroom can fit 3 people comfortably. Great amenities to enjoy while you're staying there...pool, gym, full kitchen, and laundry facilities...not to mention plenty of parking. Can't get much better than that!
