This condo was perfect for my husband and myself. First time to visit San Fran and we couldn't have been more pleased with it. It was everything - and more- than we expected. The fire pit on the patio is especially nice for the cool mornings with our coffee and the cool evenings to enjoy a glass of wine. Just north a few blocks you can walk to Marina Blvd and get great pics of the sunset. It's not only within walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants, but is close to buses that go everywhere within the city. Our first night we took the sunset cruise on the Red/White line at Pier 43, where we had dinner aboard and took great pictures. One day we took the HOHO tour (Hop on Hop off) and rode atop a double-decker bus. That was a blast, we got to see all the different areas of SF and our tour guide was very funny and informative. We got off at Union St, walked around a bit and hopped on another one to finish the tour by Fisherman's Wharf. One day we did the Alcatraz tour (book at least 2 weeks in advance), the audio tour was very enlightening - be prepared to do a lot of walking. Try to eat at Scoma if you can get a reservation, it's close to Pier 43. Pier 39 has tons of shops and eateries and we watched the sea lions sunning and playing. They were hilarious. We went across the GG Bridge to Sausalito - what a picturesque little town with great shops and restaurants - there's a Scoma there too. All in all, we loved the condo and loved San Fran and will be going back same time next year, the weather couldn't have been better and we hated to leave. Kathy and Rick were always on hand to answer any questions we had before we even arrived. They are great hosts.
