Overview

Marina District Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio Suite 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) New Registration Pending

You can see the waterfront when arrive at the entrance of this special location in jeweled neighborhood - only 3 doors away from the Marina (hence the name). There is also a unique, spacious private garden where you can enjoy indoor/outdoor living if you like. No street noise whatsoever! Enjoy Golden Gate views at the corner. Take your coffee on the patio or stroll down to waterfront and contemplate the views of Golden Gate bridge. You may spot a seal or two bobbing in the surf! This light-filled space offers a unique advantage with its large private garden. The garden is as large as the indoor space and is unusual in this chic neighborhood. Walk along the waterfront promenade to Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy Ft Mason. One block a away, Ft. Mason offers the famous Greens waterfront restaurant, a farmer's market every Sunday and a yummy food truck neighborhood gathering every Friday night March - Sept. A little further along the shoreline and you are at Ghiradelli Square and Fsiherman's Wharf. Go the other direction to Palace of Fine Arts, and the beaches of GG bridge. No need for a car. Great taxi, bus access and even rental car services nearby.

You are 3 blocks away from many great restaurants and shops, wine bars, food markets (and I do mean GREAT Zagat rated) to distract you on Chestnut street. Lovely french doors open on to a lush, completely private garden with flowering trees. Light streams into this flat from garden windows all around. Garden patio adds wonderful character to the unit and almost as large as the unit itself. Apt is very private - no other homes or people in sight. Beautiful Mediterranean and Art Deco architecture all around. Queen bed with down comforter and lots of comfy pillows. There is room for a child to sleep as well on a twin pull out chair. Office area for work space too if needed- hopefully you are just having fun.

Easy parking nearby and additional free parking at the marina across street. I live in same building so if you need anything special you can ask,

-Romantic getaway or home away from home while visiting.

-Safeway supermarket, Starbuck's one block away and farmer's market every Sunday at Ft. Mason. Famous 'Greens' restaurant with waterfront view is only 3 minute walk toward Fisherman's Wharf.

Includes: Flat screen TV with cable, DVD, washer/dryer access, free Wi-Fi. Really amazing location!

Walk or bike to Golden Gate Bridge and other attractions.

. Great running, biking (rent bikes a block away) and walking paths along water (all flat), Farmer's market on Sundays, Groceries and Starbucks around the corner, 5 minutes to National Seashore Park. Fisherman's Wharf 10-15 min walk along waterfront, Alcatraz, Ft Point, Ft Mason historic centers all close.

About The Owner

I am a long time SF resident and love my international city and helping others discover its beauty and nooks and crannies. This neighborhood is one of the few areas where you really don't need a car and everyone is safe strolling at all times.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Marina District

I love walking by the waterfront for sunsets and never tire of looking at the GG bridge. This is my favorite neighborhood with gorgeous views that everyone thinks of when they see pictures of San Francisco. Neighborhood has a fun vibe with lots of fabulous restaurants, wine bars and shops.

What makes this condo unique

Unique and private garden setting. Beautiful architecture, quiet neighborhood with postcard-like vistas everywhere you look. First floor (so no stairs to climb either). Walking distance to main attractions or San Francisco.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the stay at your VRBO unit this past week. We had a wonderful time in SF and the location could not been more ideal. Walking to the bay for sun rise & sun set were a real treat for us. On our last day we walked the Golden Gate Bridge.



We will always remember this stay and highly recommend to all we meet.

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5

Our brief weekend stay couldn't have been better. We didn't do our usual trip planning but it turns out we really didn't need to as all of Laura's recommendations were perfect. The Fishermans Warf area is an easy walk past Fort Mason and bike rentals are plentiful in the Marina area so you can explore Crissy Field towards the Golden Gate bridge. Secret tip--free shuttle service within the Presidio. Dont miss Friday night food truck party Off the Grid and weekend brunch at Greens Restaurant. Be sure and schedule time just to sit in the apartment's patio and listen to the foghorns! Laura was extremely easy to work with (helped us store bags as our flight arrived insanely early), the apartment was comfortable and well-appointed and the whole weekend felt more like we were staying in the home of a really fun cousin who unfortunately had to be at work the whole time we were there.

San Francisco - Away from New England Winter

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Laura's beautiful studio and it goes without saying that we just love everything about the accommodations. The location is ideal - just a few steps from fabulous views of the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge and nearby to restaurants and shops on Chestnut Street. We were so happy to get away from the cold and snowy Northeast and visit with our son! The studio itself is very comfortable and well appointed for dining in (if you choose) and to enjoy the outdoor garden patio for morning coffee or evening grilling. Also very close to the Safeway for last minute groceries. Visit Fort Mason on Friday evenings for some great outdoor markets with great food and wine. Very easy to get around the city. One week is just not enough so we are already planning our return visit - Laura does a wonderful job of making you feel comfortable. Thank You so much Laura (and Bennie) for sharing your beautiful location with us.

Beautiful place in a beautiful part of San Francisco!

  • 5 of 5

Even though I live in the Bay Area, I needed an "escape" and some "me" time in the City. I chose to stay in Laura's beautiful, large studio rather than in a hotel or motel, as I wanted privacy, to be close to the Marina Green, GG Bridge, great Marina shops, restaurants and wine bars, and to take advantage of the beautiful garden patio adjacent to the studio. The ambiance of Laura's tastefully furnished and well stocked studio, combined with local Marina amenities and Laura's wonderful hospitality, was exactly the getaway I was looking for. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Cozy apartment, great neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Loved having this cozy little flat in this neighborhood. It's like being in the suburbs of San Francisco but with all the benefits of the city nearby. The owner was very welcoming and kind; she even put her car on the street to hold us a space the night of our arrival, so we would have a spot in front of the apartment for our late arrival.

The apartment itself is very well appointed and comfy. Loved having the white noise machine by the bed; even though it was a quiet neighborhood, it was fun to fall asleep to the sound of waves or a babbling brook.

My only constructive criticism would be that it would be helpful to have a coffee grinder. We always take our own beans to our VRBO stays, and like having that first cup of fresh coffee before we hit the pavement. There was ground coffee provided, but for us coffee lovers, freshly ground is the only way to go.

One star off for that, otherwise a 5-star accommodation! Thanks Laura, you were terrific!

Owner's Response: I like the idea of getting a coffee grinder. Since I don't drink much coffee, I never thought of it. Thanks for suggestion.

Great Accomodation in the Marina District

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the studio while visiting one of our kids who lives in the neighborhood. I can echo all previous comments that the studio is very clean, with comfortable furniture, well stocked kitchen, and beautiful patio. The main commercial street of the neighborhood, Chestnut Street, is about a 10 minute walk, all perfectly flat. There are many great restaurants and local coffeehouses, and the Sunday Farmer's Market at Fort Mason was fabulous, particularly for a New Englander in December.

My only very small comment that might help future renters is that the bed is in a corner against the wall, making it somewhat awkward for the "inside" person to get in and out at night.

Laura is very nice, and was available and helpful. I would definitely return to this lovely location, thank you!
