About Beth

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.

Beth purchased this condo in 1999

Why Beth chose Marina District

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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.

This apartment was fantastic to base ourselves in for the week we were visiting San Francisco. We were able to walk most places.Buses and the cable car are easily accessible. The area is beautiful with stunning architecture. John was very responsive to any questions and the apartment itself had everything we needed with beautiful views, and was in a very safe neighbourhood. Perfect for couples and small families ��

Spring Vacation in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here during spring vacation 2015. Everything about the unit presented online was accurate. We had a delightful time. We have stayed multiple times over the past few years in San Francisco and the Marina area is our favorite place to hang out. The unit is in a great neighborhood; neighbors we met were friendly and welcoming. We took our bikes and were able to quickly access trails down to the Golden Gate Bridge and, in the opposite direction, to Fisherman's Wharf. With the help of the owner, we secured a parking pass that allowed us to park on the street, which by the way, was not a problem in any way. You do need to make a trip to the DMV office upon arrival in the city to obtain the parking permit ($36), but, once we found the office, it was only a ten-minute wait. The fee was more than reasonable, considering the cost of finding street parking in San Francisco. The owners were readily available by phone when we had a couple of questions. So, all in all, we would give the experience, an "A."

The apartment is located in an excellent area near Chestnut Street (with a lot of delicious restaurants), close to the water and local stores (food included). The buses run on Chestnut and up Fillmore, so the access to the financial district is very easy. The unit is compact, but has all the essentials. The view is magnificent! It is on a quiet street. Access to the building and the unit is with codes, so no keys are necessary, which was nice (no chance of losing the keys). The bedroom has a large bed. There is a alcove by the living room that has a twin bed. The only thing I would point out is that to access the unit, one needs to take the stairs up two flights. My son and I would definitely stay there again.

Owner met us at the front door upon arrival and gave us a tour and all the codes. We stayed for about a week. We were pleasantly surprised that the views of Alcatraz Island out of the front window and other photos of the unit were exactly as shown in the VRBO ad. Unit is large enough for 2 people and one child. Bed is a true King size and comfortable. Kitchen is small but has the necessities and full size refrigerator and stove. Location is excellent, only a block away from the SF boat harbor and streets of lovely homes. The shoreline is busy with people biking, walking and jogging along the parkway, with a full view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Restaurants, coffee shops and shopping are only are only 2 blocks away and a full service Safeway Market is 1/2 mile. Closed parking in the attached garage was also a plus as the empty spaces on the street fill up fast. Security deposit was returned within a day. We will stay again on our next visit.

Crissy Field Beach
Car: not necessary

The condo is in the Marina just one half a block away from the beach. The Marina District is one of the most upscale and desirable neighborhoods in the City. 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 restaurants 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.
