Guestbook comments from the owner
I stayed here for a few months and the condo is absolutely great! It is very charming and quiet-plus it's in one of the best parts of the City for sure. The beds are comfortable and the entire condo is very clean and well cared for. The kitchen is sunny and very cheerful to wake up to. Also, the high-def TV was a nice bonus. I'm coming back! Wish I could live here full-time. Beth and John are very helpful and friendly too.

I was born and raised in San Francisco and attended U.C. Berkeley. I live in the Silicon Valley with my family and this condo is our city home. We do not use it all the time and enjoy making it available to fellow travelers.

John purchased this condo in 1999

As a San Francisco native I know the city very well. My family and I decided to buy this condo in the Marina District because we believe the Marina is one of the most beautiful and lively districts in all of San Francisco. We bought this condo as our city home and we live in Silicon Valley, about one hour from S.F. Some of the reasons we bought in this area: you can walk to the beach and enjoy amazing Crissy Fields, excellent restaurants and bars are a 5-minute walk away on Chestnut Street, Safeway is just a 10-minute walk away. There are great biking paths as well as a movie theater, Apple store, spas and hair salons within minutes from our doorway. Even though all these amenities are nearby, the neighborhood is very quiet and family-friendly.

The condo is charming with hardwood floors and a small sun porch at the rear. You can watch ships and sailboats as they sail on the bay from the front window in the living room-truly beautiful! It is genuine San Francisco living at it's finest. Plus, on foggy evenings, you can hear the gentle sound of the fog horns on the Bay.

Great location in a great city. We had easy access to all of the things we wanted to see and do. With public transportation nearby this was an ideal location. We would certainly stay there again.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had another wonderful stay in "the big city". This is our second stay and as always was not disappointed. The apartment is perfectly located and clean and comfortable. We caught cab up to Union St (although it can certainly be walked) and had dinner then worked our way back on foot stopping at a few local watering holes on Chestnut St. The neighborhood has much to offer and is very safe to walk.
If we had stayed longer, we would have taken advantage of the kitchen facilities and cooked up some from seafood from Fisherman's Wharf and had a nice bottle of wine while enjoying the view of the bay from the front room. The neighborhood is quiet also which you don't find in many SF tourists spots.
Thank you John and Beth!

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
My family with two tweens loved the apartment on Casa Way. It was clean, easy accessible to restaurants and public transportation. It was quiet and simply lovely. The view was wonderful! We have recommended it to friends and will stay again! The owner is easy to work with and most accommodating. Thanks for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Sorry about the construction inconvenience. City of SF replacing storm drain has been completed.
There are over 20 restaurants on Chestnut Street which is a 7 minute walk (4 blocks) from our apartment.

PEACEFUL, CLEAN AND COMFY FOR WORK AND PLAY

  • 5 of 5
I stayed two weeks in February for work. It was the perfect place to get my work done, celebrate my birthday and have a visit with my daughter who also got to celebrate her birthday here. The unit was spotless, the bed comfortable, and well appointed. The wifi is fast enough to stream. The TV had all the movie channels and a DVR so we could watch the olympics and our favorite shows whenever we wanted. We could walk to the bus, shopping, and restaurants easily. Parking in the garage was perfect for my frequent in and out needs. The owners responded to my many questions and requests quickly and enthusiastically. There are so many things to do nearby, yet it's so peaceful here. It was a perfect stay. If my work brings me back to SFO, I would love to stay here again.

The condo is in the Marina just one half a block away from the beach and all of the America's Cup Sail Boat racing events. The Marina District is one of the most upscale and desirable neighborhoods in the City! You can easily walk to all the America's Cup activities and the America's Cup Village. I attended the Regattas (pre-races) and the Village has a huge viewing screen which shows the racing Sail Boats from a bird's eye view and from on board the actual racing boats. Crissy Fields Beach is absolutely beautiful and includes a promenade which runs along the beach with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, bike paths, picnic areas with BBQ's, lunch and coffee spots and pier fishing. You can also walk to the Palace of the Fine Arts (about a 10 minute walk), and the Exploratorium. Trendy Union Street is a 15 minute walk away and has world-class shopping, restaurants, bars and personal services. Pier 39 is also within walking distance- about a 25 minute walk. You can rent bicycles and enjoy a scenic bike ride. Just head to the Marina Green, about 1 minute from the front door, and enjoy safe and wide bike lanes with no traffic to deal with. You can bike into the Crissy Field National Park (The largest natural city park in the U.S.) and ride along the beach right to the Golden Gate Bridge. Bicycles are on one side of the Golden Gate Bridge and pedestrains are on the other for safety and enjoyment. Walking or riding your bike across the Golden Gate Bridge is an absolute must do experience! One of my favorite day trips is to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge and ride into Sausalito. Have lunch in Sausalito which is a beautiful city full of great restarunts and art galleries. Then catch an afternoon ferry from Sausalito back over to San Francisco. You just park your bikes right on the ferry and enjoy a mini-cruise on the San Francisco Bay.
