GARDEN STUDIO, WIFI, WALK TO GGP AND UCSF (SAME OWNER/BUILDING AS VRBO #417967)

Sunset District Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bright Garden Studio close to GGP and UCSF. (Same building as VRBO #417967)

A peaceful and light filled retreat in San Francisco: Curl up and read your book. Enjoy a cup of coffee in this comfortable space or grab a seat in the courtyard. Listen to your iPod, bring your own laptop and use our wireless internet. Have this home as your base as you explore all that San Francisco has to offer!

Great natural light, high ceilings, outdoor space

Features: Hardwood floors, 2 people can comfortably sleep in the queen bed.

There is a pack n play available.

There is a roll away cot available.

High speed wireless Internet, just bring your laptop to access movies and shows online or use your Netflix account on the TV.

This flat is in a three unit building with a separate entry door.

The flat is on the ground floor with the front door to the studio in the courtyard. Entrance to the courtyard is through a garden gate.

Parking is relatively easy in our area! We are a few blocks outside of the

restricted 2 hour parking (so you can park all day if you need to)

and we are in a residential area.

There is street cleaning one day a week, so you just have to check the signs.

Occasionally, you may need to park a block or two away, but we can provide

a map showing the next easiest places to park if that ever happens.

When we lived there, we had 2 vehicles, and never used our garages

(it's a 1939 building and they are a tight squeeze!). It was never a problem and we could regularly park within a block.

Don't forget to 'curb your wheels' on hills (any slope). There is a law in SF that you need to turn your wheels 'into' the curb (so that if your car came out of park for any reason, it would not go rolling into the next vehicle or down the road).

A leisurely walk to Golden Gate Park (De Young, Cal Academy, Japanese Tea Gardens, Botanical Gardens, Playgrounds, Buffalo, and so much more). Time your visit just right and be walking distance to one of the amazing and sometimes FREE music festivals such as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.

Walking distance:

N Judah Line (1 block away) - straight ride to downtown area.

UCSF Medical Center

Golden Gate Park

9th & Irving - Inner Sunset (boutiques, restaurants)

Grand View Park (small 360 view hilltop park)

Mt. Sutro Park (wooded trails behind UCSF)

20th & Irving - Central Sunset (Asian food)

Andronico's (gourmet grocery store - 4 blocks away)

Variety of local restaurants (Cafes, Japanese/ Sushi, Brunch, Peruvian, Ethiopian, Italian/ Pizza, Local Brewery, Thai, Vietnamese, Vegetarian, Mexican, and so much more)

For those whose shoes were made for walking -

Walk to other nearby neighborhoods - Cole Valley, Haight Ashbury, Ocean's Beach, explore every trail of Golden Gate Park (larger than NYC's Central Park!), the Panhandle, the local and trendy restaurants in NOPA (North of the Panhandle), and more.

Bike lanes are on Kirkham Ave. and throughout the city for those who enjoy exploring on wheels! Bikes not provided, but are available for rent at various locations throughout the city.

The top floor is also available under VRBO listing #417967 (it is a 2 bd/ 1 ba)

About Anne McGinty

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 loved living in the Inner Sunset. 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.

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!

Anne McGinty purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Anne McGinty chose Sunset District

We started our family at this building in the city and used to live in the top floor. With a growing family, we decided it was time for a little bit more space. But, this building and neighborhood is close to our hearts! The house was built in 1939 and we have tried to retain much of that charm. We painted the exterior of the building in 2014 from a peeling and old white to vibrant sky and ocean blues. In 2013, we added solar panels for the entire building. Little by little, we have been improving this property because we love it, the neighborhood and our neighbors! And, we hope you do too!

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with the space 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). There is an increasing list of delicious restaurants: Nopalito (Mexican), Pasion (Peruvian), San Tung (authentic Chinese), Social (Brewery), PPQ (voted best pho vietnamese in SF). So, you can eat on the cheap or go out for a slightly pricier dinner - go on a date or go out with your family! We love the peace and quiet with the close proximity to the boutiques and restaurants... It makes for a great walk home after dinner.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Great apartment with lots of character. Easily accessible to public transportation. Great shopping and food areas within walking distance without all the tourists. Note that most of the retail shops don't open until 11am, so you can have a leisurely morning and enjoy your breakfast and a great coffee at one of the many coffee shops. Right out the front door across the street is an amazing art project on the stairs leading up to the neighbourhood above. Well worth the climb to check it all out.

Business stay in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5
I spent 6 nights in the studio for a business stay which was held in the city center of San Francisco.
The studio is exactly as depicted on the photos: clean, spacious, very pleasant, with an equipped kitchen. It is located in a quiet area of San Francisco (with fog in the morning usually - but sun is easy to find in the city center ;-)), so no problem at all to sleep. There is a metro and bus stop at the corner of the street (very easy and convenient - I used the metro every day). All parts of the city and airports are connected with public transport to the city center.
I would recommend this studio for any kind of trip in San Francisco (business or holiday) and will not hesitate to rent it again in the future!

Almost perfect

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just stayed here for five nights and had a great time. The studio was really just about perfect.. Very clean and comfortable, well stocked with all the necessities, in a very nice residential location with easy parking and access to public transportation, and close to very good restaurants and supermarkets. The only negative, and it was a minor one, was that tv was unwatchable from the bed and would be better on an articulating mount. One other thing to mention. The studio is in Inner Sunset, which is constantly the coldest and foggiest area of the city, so be prepared for that. Still, we had a great time and would definitely rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! And, my husband said the same thing about that TV wall mount after it arrived - I should have replaced it right then. I'm going to order one of the swiveling ones today :)!

Awesome studio near everything!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this studio for 3 nights in June. Place was absolutely adorable and just as pictured. Chic furnishings, full kitchen, bathroom with tub, incredible courtyard and deck just with this unit. Just a block away from muni line. Few blocks from all the bars and restaurants in Inner Sunset and Golden Gate Park. Free and unlimited parking on street which is rare in the city. Exceptional value in prime neighborhood!
