PERFECT QUIET GETAWAY! MARINA/COW HOLLOW, ONSITE PARKING, BEAUTIFUL GARDEN!

Cow Hollow Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Experience San Francisco like a true native. This street level unit with its own private entrance has been in the same family home for three generations. We not only offer a perfect location but since we live on the second floor, we are happy to help our guests plan their trip and enjoy the city to its maximum.

This fully remodeled unit is litterally steps away from legendary Union Street with its boutiques, resaurants, cafes, bakeries and wine bars. It is a quick stroll to Chestnut Street, Polk Street and the Marina Greens... and very close to Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the ferry to Alcatraz.

Our unit is perfect for a stay during America's Cup and Louis Vuitton's Cup. Our very quiet unit is about 10 min walking distance to the water and you can easily get to all the America's and Louis Vuitton's Cups attractions without a car or public transportation. You will enjoy the amazing and frenetic ambiance of the city and its races during the day but come back home to a well hidden and quiet getaway when the sun comes down...

Our location is perfect for those travelling to San Francisco without a car... major bus lines are less than a block away from our unit. We are also walking distance from major grocery and natuaral food stores. A convenient store is located right at the corner. And you can be a tourist by day and a native by night, barbecuing in our yard!

For those with a car, you are a short ride from Ocean Beach, Mont Tamalpais, Muirs Woods and Stinson Beach... You can even plan a day trip to Napa Valley and Sonoma.

PARKING AVAILABLE ONSITE!!!

Parking is available in the street, in front of our garage door ($20/night). Your car would be blocking ours in the garage but since the sidewalk is very large, we can maneuver around the car parked in the street to get out of the garage. And if for some reason you wanted to park inside our garage because you were not planning to use your car a lot, we could definitely organize accordingly. It requires very little communication and it is definitely worth the pain of public garages...

Other options for parking:

-Public parking garage 3 blocks away: $25/night, closed from 12am to 8am. No “in and out” privileges.

-Street parking in the neighborhood: can be very challenging but possible (2 hrs max in the same spot from 8am to 6pm, can have to park several blocks away)

SLEEPING CAPACITY

Sleeps 4 people but ideal for 2: one upscale king size bed and one queen size convertible bed

-extra charge for over 2 guests, adults or children over 2 years old

-for your comfort, convertible bed intended for 1 adult or 2 young children under 50lbs

-if needed, extra floor mattress available

KID-FRIENDLY: the kids have their own convertible bed next to their parents.

BABY FRIENDLY: there is plenty of space to put a playpen next to the bed for a baby. Upon request and free of charge, we can provide a playpen (pack and go style, changing station included) along with a 'Bumbo Seat' with a tray for baby to eat in.

We speak English, French and Spanish!!

We got married in 2009 and see ourselves living in Cow Hollow for the rest of our lives. John is a rare born and raised San Franciscan who is more than happy to share his vast city and restaurant knowledge... Julie is a francophile from Montreal who came to vacation in San francisco and never left. Score one for John!!

Julie Duggan purchased this apartment in 1948

This house in the heart of Cow Hollow has been in our family for three generations... originally built by my grandfather in 1948. It was completely remodeled in 2011. We created a street level unit in our home to share our beautiful location with tourists from all over the world that want to have a true San Franciscan experience.

Steps from Union Street and its restaurant, cafes, bars and unique stores, 5 and 2 blocks from Fillmore and Chestnut Streets, walking distance to Crissy Field, Marina Greens, Fort Mason, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach... Truly a world class location!

We had an enjoyable time in San Francisco, thanks to our great host, Julie! We had no car, but the location was central to great shopping/restaurants and all our tourist destinations. The bed is the most comfortable ever. Having the outdoor grill and fireplace (we used both) were bonuses. The only suggestions I have are some art for the walls and a measuring cup and measuring spoons :)

Delightful “home away from home”

Being a native of San Francisco I knew exactly where I wanted to stay. When I read the description of this property I knew I found my spot. I wasn’t disappointed! This flat is a quiet and beautiful respite away from the buzz of the city. Perfect!

As you’ll read in other reviews, this young family goes the extra mile to make you feel “at home”. Julie and John are both very charming and helpful. The flat has everything you could want to make yourself comfortable. If you visit, be sure to browse the book of the “before” photos left on the coffee table; what an amazing transformation they did with the space!

I will return and happily share this gem with all who wish to visit San Francisco in the future.

My husband and I stayed in this suite for 5 nights in October and we loved it! We had stayed in Cow Hollow in a B&B the year before so we knew we loved the area. John and Julie's suite is so comfortable and very well appointed - the pictures in the listing are very accurate. At the end of a day of walking hills it was so great to come back to a place that felt like home and not a hotel room! The bed was very comfortable and it was so nice to have a kitchen for breakfasts and snacks. The property was very convenient for taking the bus and was located just off of Union, close to tons of restaurants and shops. Everything was very clean and well maintained. John and Julie were very helpful and willing to make recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Would definitely recommend this great rental! We loved our stay and hope to stay again in our future trips to this lovely city!

First visit to San Francisco

This was our first VRBO experience. The place was fantastic! it's just like in the photos. As other reviewers have said, it was nice to come back to a quiet neighborhood place after a busy day among the crowds. But just a block away are plenty of great restaurants if you want to go out. We went to several of the restaurants the owners recommended and they were all great. They provided a lot of helpful information also. Loved the HUGE bathroom (excellent blow dryer!) and the big comfortable bed. We would for sure rent this again if we travel back to SF.
