Thanks Monty, we had a wonderful time in San Francisco in part due to your apartment! It was perfect for my family of 5 and very comfortable! It was a huge benefit being so close to the park, we had a great time being able to walk right in. Parking was not very difficult, easier during the day :) Clement Street was an easy walk for restaurants and pubs, great Chinese for dinner, and the nearby market provided all the staples we needed to have breakfast in and make lunches if we so desired :) The nearby bus routes were close and easy to get to where ever we wanted to go. The location was close enough to city attractions and at the same time far enough away. We slept well!
Clean, well maintained, stairs to walk up and down. (Pack your suitcase lighter, thinking back I should have packed 2 one for my husband and one for me instead of our usual great big one :) Plenty of pillows & comfy bedding. The iron was appreciated and it was nice to brew coffee in Am and not have to run out to get it.
I can't think of anything this apartment lacked, hope we have a chance to come back and stay again!
Walk across Golden Gate Bridge then catch city bus to Sausalito (runs hourly from other side of bridge) Have lunch and take ferry back to Pier 39 or Ferry Building.
Scoma's for excellent seafood (our more pricey meal but well worth it!) I had the Cioppino ($39) and it was fantastic. Two of the kids had really good fish-n- chips.
Stroll around Golden Gate Park, pack a lunch and make it a picnic, the Japanese Tea Gardens were worth the admission. I did not go but our oldest daughter (17) loved the Academy of Sciences, spent the day on her own exploring. The lake looked like fun, with the row boats, but we did not have enough time to explore it :(
Our 14yo loved the shopping at Union Square (so did I) amazing mall and stores galore! Our 7yo enjoyed riding the 5+ story curving escalator in the mall and the food court with all it's goodies! Parking was difficult there I would recommend taking the bus there instead.
Did not have time to go to the Ferry Building but I hear it's a great place to stop and I really wanted to go to the secret slides on Seward Street but the timing did not work out.
Skip- Ghiardelli Square unless you really need a sundae, Pier 39- REALLY crowded, went on Sunday it may be better on a week day if you want to check it out. Mostly eateries and souvenir shops that you can find most other places.
