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 a huge traditional house (early 1900s?) with some modern touches, which makes it super attractive - it combines an awesome style with all the new things you want to see in a house, including remodeled bathroomS and kitchen. My wife is very keen on having a good feeling wherever we stay, and she loved the place. We had peaceful and delightful breakfast every morning by the big round table on the dining room, you can't get that on any hotel. If you travel to SF as often as we do, you know hotels there are quite expensive. To get a good one at a reasonable price you gotta travel 30 to 45 minutes out of SF, which is not a great thing at all - that alone makes this place an obvious choice. The golden gate park is 2 blocks away! There is a mini grocery store 1 block away. The owner is very nice and responsive (there were a couple things we requested, which he is addressing). If you see this property available, don't lose your chance! Get it!

The neighboring area is so peaceful and quiet. The location is not pedestrian friendly so taking a walk was a challenge for me unless my husband came along. With our busy and hectic work schedule we really needed to rejuvenate in serenity and we really appreciated that. This home is very clean, well organized and well thought-out on items visitors will need even an little as having a starch spray for your ironing. We met Denise, the owner who visits the unit once or twice a week. She was very accommodating, and friendly. The area is an older town so the homes may not be completely sound proof and sounds can be heard when owners visit upstairs but we didn't mind. It's a homey feeling overall. There are deer's roaming around the compound and in the neighborhood which we thought was an added beauty ! We would definitely re-visit when we can find the time to escape again! From Trinidad, CA
