Rent a House in San Francisco

The crown jewel of the Bay Area in Northern California, San Francisco is as famous for its arts offerings and ethnically diverse districts as it is for its landmark bridge. When vacationing in the City by the Bay, consider renting a house or apartment. You'll be able to experience a neighborhood the way a local would while also enjoying some of the comforts of home such as a washing machine, reserved parking spot, satellite television service, fireplace or outdoor grill.

Dining

The city's compact 49 square miles are literally packed with restaurants and eateries serving Moroccan, Italian, Mexican, Greek and Japanese dishes, to name a few, and locales pop up every day serving some type of new fusion cuisine. The areas known as South of Market and the Mission District, especially, have been gaining fame among foodies.

Culture

Museums

San Francisco takes pride in the number of museums within its city limits. The de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor house exhibits dedicated to American and European paintings and sculptures. The Asian Art Museum's very extensive collections include art from China, India and Japan. Several of Coit Tower's walls are home to excellent 1930s murals inspired by Diego Rivera's style.

Performing Arts

San Francisco boasts its own symphony and jazz music center, as well as an opera and a ballet company. This is in addition to the dozens of theaters and venues which regularly present film screenings, plays, dance recitals and concerts.

Shopping

For world-class shopping in the city there's no need to look any further than Union Square. The area is home to major retailers, upscale boutiques and exclusive designer stores in addition to art galleries, cafes and clubs.

Outdoor activities

Cable Cars

A ride aboard an iconic San Francisco cable car is an experience unto itself, providing great views of the city and the bay as the cable car travels along one of three routes, all of which go through Nob Hill. This neighborhood is graced by a Notre Dame replica, Grace Cathedral, and some stately homes dating back to before the 1906 earthquake.

Pier 39

This is a touristy area, but also a must do. Enjoy the street performers and shops, then be sure to savor a traditional sourdough bread bowl with clam chowder before stopping to greet the sea lions that have taken up residence here.

Planning Your Visit

Due to foggy, windy marine conditions, San Francisco's weather is the exception to the rule that says California's climate is sunny and warm all year. The best weather conditions can be found in the late summer and early fall months, when highs are normally in the 70s or low 80s, and even then, it's a good idea to wear layers topped by a jacket. Autumn is also a great time to visit if you're a chocoholic—it's when visitors can sample chocolates and fine wines at the annual Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival.

Options for Getting to San Francisco

San Francisco has its own international airport served by many major airlines. It's located approximately 13 miles from the downtown area. The process of renting a car there is simplified by the fact that there are many rental agencies in one centralized Rental Car Center. Advanced reservations for private limousine and town car service are required; vans providing shared ride services don't require pre-booking, but their travel times are lengthened if they have to make multiple stops. There are also public bus and rapid rail routes that stop at San Francisco International Airport and then proceed to different points in the city.

It's comfortable, crisp, and had all we needed for our stay. We were happy to see a coffee maker and electric kettle for our morning coffee and tea, as well as a hot plate for making breakfast before we ventured out on the town. The bed was comfy and the place just had a nice feel to it. A couple of suggestions for improvements for future guests - the bathroom could use some updating and refreshing, and the fold-up cot could be taken out of the room for guests that aren't using it as it would free up some space to move around and enjoy the comforts a bit better. The location can't be beat! Just a phenomenal location in North Beach. Easy to get to the bus lines and out to wherever we wanted to go in the city. Also an easy walk to the Embarcadero and also Market Street. We enjoyed going up to the roof for some afternoon beverages and enjoying the view! It was just fantastic. Be prepared for some hill walking to get to the place though! All in all we very much enjoyed our stay. One final note of caution and maybe something for the owner/manager to think about - Tuesday morning is trash day and at about 5:20am somebody came through like a rabid bull in a china shop to get the trash carts outside. Fortunately we were already up and getting ready to go to the airport, but it definitely would have been a rude awakening! Maybe consider having somebody take them out the night before? Thanks so much for the great place and the detailed write-up. David seems like a really nice and interesting guy based on his write-up and commentary. We'll definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to San Francisco!

Ease of access and ability to have multiple folks be able to come & go with lock box and codes good. Construction noise not all that bad. Owners should review and enhance the housewares, not enough wine glasses, etc. Property with this rental price should make sure kitchen equipment is provided and updated. With this said, would consider renting again if needed a 3 bedroom short term.
