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.

The apt. was beautiful and looked just like the photos and was much larger than what we were expecting. It's fully equipped with everything you need to have a nice, relaxing stay - it's just as described in the profile. The rooftop pool and patio area is very clean and well-equipped as well but it was winter so, we didn't get a chance to swim but can imagine that it'd be a great place to hang out in the summer time. For those who are not familiar with San Francisco, the Mission district is a lively neighborhood in transition and the apt. is within walking distance of many good restaurants, bars, stores, tacquerias, ice cream parlors and more. Overall, it's a safe neighborhood and the apt. is within a block of the BART station (16th St. stop) but like all major cities, you should be mindful of your surroundings. We would definitely recommend this to our urban-savvy friends and would absolutely rent it again!

We found sixty-two perfect sand dollars in less than thirty minutes and enjoyed watching surfers and others enjoying the ocean front. We easily purchased a pass online for public transportation after parking our rental car in its designated safe spot. Groceries weren't too far away and best priced at the Safeway. The kitchen has all the basics to support making meals over eating out all the time. The bed, sheets and pillows are so comfortable! The shower had a terrific shower head and plenty of hot water. Quiet neighbors (even over NYE!) in the building and unassuming neighborhood. Easy walkability to restaurants, cafes, parks, beach, bike trails, public transport, and more. The property owner was professional, personable, and quickly responsive when needs arose. My husband and I were here for four nights to celebrate our anniversary and we'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

It was a great stay especially the residential neighborhood is so wonderful. You are so helpful at any time of my stay. Thank you so much ! Perhaps you will have the possibility to improve the interior Fitting in the near future. I think new chairs, a new table and new carpet will improve the Apartment considerably. I hope I can stay in your Apartment the next year. Best regards , Michael
