We have lived in San Francisco for over twenty years. As East Coasters we were originally drawn to the city for its vibrancy, artistic nature, and moderate climate. Since moving here we have lived in many parts of the city and have found each area to be unique and special in its own right. However, we especially love North Beach for it’s history, central location, and eclectic vibe.
We work in the fields of health/wellness and are committed to constantly expanding our view of the world. One way we feel we can do this is to open our studio to people visiting from other places.
We have two small friendly dogs (one of whom does bark when she's leaving for a walk -- she never barks otherwise). We are mostly on the go, but also enjoy our quiet family time.
We purchased our home because it is where we wanted to live. When we found this property we knew right away that the studio would be an attractive rental for travelers form all parts of the world.
The thing we enjoy about this property – besides its great charm -- is the central location to many interesting activities. In the mornings we like to walk down to the Italian/French bakery and buy fresh croissants, biscotti, and bread. Then we hike three blocks up to Coit Tower and watch the ships come in as we have our treat.
On Saturdays we love to walk down the Filbert Steps to the Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building. Where you can find some of the best local organic foods available. It’s also great for people watching.
Many evenings we walk down Grant Ave to local restaurants – there is a fantastic range from super-cheap to high end. The boutiques on Grant Ave offer unique gifts and the clothing stores are excellent for men, women, and children. Our favorite makes exceptional custom shoes and coats.
Another daily activity is taking our small dogs to Washington Square Park just two blocks down the hill. At the park we watch groups of folks doing tai chi, dance, and martial arts. Sometimes there is a saxophone player making the most incredible music.
In addition to the many activities within steps of our home, we find ourselves leaving the car at home while we walk or take short bus rides to downtown, Chinatown, and the Marina.
