I am from Atlanta, GA and my husband is from the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. After attending Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, I worked in Australia and traveled in New Zealand where I met my husband! We love San Francisco and our light filled and peaceful apartment. We have recently relocated to Sonoma County to raise our growing family and enjoy coming into the city periodically to walk the neighborhoods we know so well.

Anne McGinty purchased this apartment in 2008

We originally lived in the Inner Sunset, then moved to Pacific Heights (which is also a great neighborhood, but with a completely different feel) and ended up moving back to the Inner Sunset. The Inner Sunset has a great location and is a wonderful neighborhood for living like the locals do. There are local restaurants for every budget from $-$$$$. And, we love being near Golden Gate Park because we enjoy the green space on a much more regular basis when it's right there!

We fell in love with the view and how light and airy the place feels. Sometimes the Inner Sunset feels like one of the undiscovered neighborhoods of the city - it's GREAT and recently some very established boutiques and restaurants have decided to join this increasingly popular spot. The Inner Sunset is the main neighborhood for anyone working at UCSF, including new interns and residents! It's down to earth and you can grab a burrito for $5, but it also has some of the best award-winning restaurants in town including Ebisu (Japanese) and Marnee (Thai). Soon to open is a Nopalito (Mexican) and Pasion (Peruvian in the Fresca Restaurant family) are great date spots for a slightly pricier dinner. We love the peace and quiet with the close proximity to the boutiques and restaurants... It makes for a great walk home after dinner.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time using VRBO or anything like it, and we must say we were left in awe! I don't think I will ever stay in a hotel again.

First off, Anne was an absolute treat. She took out absolutely any worries that we may have had (being our first time) and made the whole stay fantastic.

The place itself is heaven! Very, very bright and spacious. There are 3 rooms in total and a beautiful living room as well. But none of this compares to the amazing deck! I was out there every single morning reading a book, while the sun was rising over the city with the ocean on the left. We spent very little time in the apartment itself but when we were there, it could not have been more peaceful.

The place is well located near a train line which will get you to everywhere you need to go. There are also restaurants, cafes and grocery stores close by.

Free Wifi worked well, as did everything else.

It truly was the perfect stay. I will try and book this place every time I come to SF as I do have family here.

I could go on and on, but really just don't hesitate, you will not be disappointed! Book this place today!

Thank you for a lovely stay Anne, we will for SURE be back!

MOM OF 3

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful four days in this lovely apartment. It is bright, cheerful, clean and has great sunset views. Beds for 5 were comfy. Our 3 boys loved that it was blocks from golden gate park, street parking our minivan was easy, lots of good restaurants made it convenient to get tasty take-out after long days of touring SF when the kids didn't want to go out to eat. Depending on traffic, it takes around 20 minutes to drive to the embarcadero from this location, but there is lots of very convenient public transportation within a block of the apt. I highly recommend this place for a family with kids!

A PLACE TO STAY FOR YEARS

  • 5 of 5
After the first birthday of our daughter have we decided to plan a memorable trip to San Francisco for four weeks. Our effort in finding the best accommodation was driven by some baby specific needs as well as our idea of diving into the city and become part of it (as much as you can get in such short time and as a foreigner). Now I can say - this place was just a perfect choice. From the moment we entered the appartment we felt like being home. Everything was prepared as if we only have been away for a few days.
There are so many points to mention - the comfortable size of the appartment for a family, the lovely and well selected interior, well equipped kitchen, baby equipment available, pretty easy parking, tram only a block away, shops and restaurants in walking distance of a nice and safe neighbourhood, proximity to Golden Gate Park, Beach not far away and many more.
The appartment is on the second (and top) floor of the building. It requires some energy to climb the stairs, but on the other hand does it provide a free view from the ocean on the left via the whole Golden Gate Park to downtown to the right. This definitely is my personal highlight. I stood hours at the window or on the balcony and just watched. Daytime, nighttime, on sunny days, on foggy days - it is always a bit different. Worth to mention - sunset give the living room and dining room a beautiful setting.
One downside: There is a bit traffic on the street also on night times, so that some car noises may bother people with light sleep. It was bad with a pothole exactly in front of the building but luckily they removed it during our stay.
Anne has prepared a folder with helpful infos including recommendations for restaurants and sights. But SF is so rich of these places that I would recommend to focus on a neighbourhood (like Height/Ashbury, Mission, Downtown, Presidio) and experience it e.g. with smaller or larger walks.
At any time the communication with Anne was very easy and she always helped us to make the stay better. Thanks!
