COZY, CONVENIENTLY LOCATED COTTAGE IN SF'S GLEN PARK NEIGHBORHOOD

Glen Park Condo Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy our top floor 1 BR condo with its own private entrance accessed directly from a lovely, private garden.

The cottage was originally built in 1908 as a 'servants' quarters' annex to the large Victorian home next door, though it is now a separate property. Two rooms were added in the 1930s and the inside of the home was tastefully remodeled over the past 20 years with love, care and attention to detail. The downstairs unit is only occupied during the day (Stephen's office), so guests typically have full privacy from early evening through the morning.

The unit includes a bright living/dining area with hardwood floors throughout, a newly remodeled gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and a bathroom with a separate shower and a claw foot tub. The comfortable Queen size bed in the bedroom plus a high-quality Queen sleeper sofa in the living room can accommodate up to 4 people.

We offer a computer with Wifi internet access, a flatscreen TV with cable and Tivo, Wii, and a DVD player.

The garden/patio area includes a built-in BBQ pit, while a separate artist studio next to the patio houses Stephen's concert grand Steinway piano (available for practice when Stephen is working downstairs).

The cottage is located on a quiet residential street with easy parking, yet within a few minutes walk you will find the quaint Glen Park shops - 1950s vintage furniture store, a quirky independent bookstore offering live jazz performances, a high-end independently-run grocery store, beauty salons, a gym and more. Highly rated local restaurants include a French bistro (le P'tit Laurent) , a restaurant serving delicious American fare (Chenery Park), Italian (Manzoni), gourmet pizza (Gialina), Cal-Mex food (la Corneta) and old-style American breakfast fare (Tiger's). From there you can hop on a Muni bus or BART (rapid train), which gets you downtown to the Union Square and main shopping area within 12 minutes, or even to the East Bay (Berkeley and beyond) in half an hour. By car, a 2 minute drive will get you to the 280/101 freeways, which offers easy access to downtown SF (10 minutes) and Silicon Valley.

A 4 minute walk down the street from the cottage leads to Glen Canyon, a beautiful 70 acre hikers' oasis and SF's best kept nature secret, which also offers a children's playground and tennis courts.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved our stay at this wonderful home! Great kitchen for cooking, and perfect location! Groceries, Bart, coffee and restaurants only a five minute walk away! The home was very clean with an enclosed courtyard. Nice for sipping a glass of wine! The hosts were very accommodating and helpful with information about the city! Would definitely stay here again!

We are family of four - Stephen, Sigrid and our two children aged 9 and 11. We currently live 10 minutes away in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood, but this was our first home and we love it very much! Stephen is a classical musician and has continued to use the downstairs apartment as his office/computer/composing space while he also spends time in the artist studio/music room (separate building) across the garden to practice on his Steinway grand piano.

Stephen is California-grown, while Sigrid is Belgian/Swedish and moved to the US in her twenties for graduate studies at Stanford - and never left! Between us we speak English, French, Spanish, Swedish and Dutch (plus some German and Russian), so for those contacting us from abroad, we look forward to welcoming you!

Glen Park is a lovely neighborhood, full of great restaurants and ample parking. The house itself stood out as the most beautiful on the block. Bright yellow, with a white gate entering into a gorgeous front garden.

The home offers an oasis of calm within one of SF's quaintest and most authentic old neighborhoods, yet with easy access to all of the excitement of San Francisco and the broader Bay Area.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY IN SAN FRANCISCO

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed staying here in the heart of Glen Park. It was quiet and private. Our hosts, Stephen and Sigrid, were most welcoming. The apartment had everything you could need and had lots of room. It was very easy to move around SF using public transit. This little oasis definitely made our stay in SF special.

COMFY, COZY AND PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We had a delightful stay in this lovely apartment. The queen bed was excellent, the kitchen very well equipped, great living/dining space and lovely light.

Loved the Glen Park neighborhood. It's close to BART and several bus lines. We visit SF to walk and tour and this was a neighborhood we hadn't explored before. Nice restaurants, sweet bakery and an excellent neighborhood grocery were just a few of the niceties located just a few blocks from the apartment.

We hope to go back for a longer stay! So grid and Stephen are excellent hosts.

GREAT PLACE IN A GREAT NEIGBORHOOD

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved everything in this charming cottage! The owners, Stephen and Sigrid, are very friendly and helpful. Stephen also gave me tips on great things to do in San Francisco, which I do not think is possible to find in the travel guides. Would highly recommend this cottage!

A TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
This little gem is filled with personality - owners Stephen and Sigrid have shown loving attention to detail. Great location in the glen park neighborhood is an easy walk to the all-important Bart, glen canyon park, markets and restaurants. Peaceful little private garden is a great place for morning coffee. All the hoped-for amenities are there: wifi, well stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, view of the city from your bedroom window, and most importantly a gracious host who went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. Looking forward to a return visit!

GERRY L FROM OTTAWA

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is everything homeaway says it is and then some. This lovely cottage is located in an amazing area of San Francisco, with all that you need within a few blocks. The Glen Park BART station is literally a 5 minute walk and will take you anywhere you need to go. This place is very roomy and incredibly comfortable with everything you need to feel at home. Sigrid was an absolute joy to deal with, she couldn't have been more helpful and easy to deal with. I would definitely stay here again next time I return to the Bay area.

AMAZING STAY!

I think I may have already written a review, but I don't see it... this cottage is a SF hidden gem. Close to BART, beautiful area, and great price. Sigrid is a pleasure to deal with, and made our stay wonderful. I HIGHLY recommend!
