My husband and I spent a fabulous week in this beautiful coach house, located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco and within a few short blocks to the America's Cup Village on the Marina Green. We echo what other reviewers have said: gorgeous, tasteful, sunny little house, thoroughly renovated, beautifully appointed kitchen, cozy fireplace, comfortable bed made up with luxurious linens, heated floors in the bathroom .... the owner's attention to detail exceeds a luxury hotel! Nancy is a delightful hostess who respected our privacy and still took the opportunity to invite us for drinks on her beautifully landscaped patio, where she engaged us in lively conversation about the day's races and the local scuttlebutt. Nancy also is a wonderful concierge and arranged America's Cup tickets for us, recommended a manicure salon and a yoga studio!
Public transportation works really well in San Francisco and is particularly convenient from this location. We took public transportation the entire week, traveling to the America's Cup Park on Pier 29, to downtown and to the Financial District. Within walking distance is the lively Chestnut Street and Union Street, where you will find numerous cafes, restaurants, shops and salons. We ate in a few nights, dining on a rotisserie chicken, French baguette, and other goodies from the Marina Market.
The Cow Hollow location is two short, horizontal blocks from the famous Lyon Street steps. Walk up about 250 steps to Broadway and you will be rewarded with a fabulous view of the City and the spectacular houses on Billionaires Row.
If up is too taxing, take a short walk down to the beautiful Presidio, where you can wander the grounds and gardens, visit the Palace of Fine Arts, and generally feel as if you are in a European capital.
We highly recommend Nancy as a hostess and her coach house as lodging. You will not be disappointed!
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. I've opened my home because it is fun for me! And the fun comes from meeting wonderful people.
Thanks for spending time with me in Cow Hollow!
