Full-floor penthouse will take your breath away! With panoramic views of the bay/ golden gate bridge and city views! This 1500 sq.ft flat compares to the Heritage Fairmont Luxury Residential Hotel in Ghirardelli Square (just 2 blocks away). Their units start at $799 per night and my penthouse is in a nicer, less busy location.

I have the most incredible views of the city in the private settings of my decks.

About Magalli

I LOVE San Francisco. I have 4 boys and love biking with them in the Marina next to the Ocean :) .... is wonderful! The air is so fresh and we all get so hungry after a long bike ride. We love good food and there are literally over 100 places to eat nearby.

You can always call us if you need information or any medical referrals etc.

Magalli purchased this apartment in 2009

Best appartment ever!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I were fortunate to stay in Magalli's appartment for nearly two weeks. It's an absolutely stunning place. Visiting from Holland it was my first time in San Francisco. The experience could not have been better, thanks to Magalli's kindness, hospitality and her wonderful appartment. The view is extraordinary, looking at the Golden Gate bridge. The location is perfect. Even though the appartment is located on a busy street, we woke up with birds every morning! My partner had to have surgery during our stay. There was no better place to recover than Magalli's appartment. It's spaceous, light, clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. And besides all this, the terrace on the roof gives an incredible sight of San Francisco! From all the places we have stayed so far during our travels, this appartment is one of the finest and Magalli is the best host you could ever wish for. We enjoyed our stay very much and we are definitely looking forward to booking the appartment again for our next visits.

Fabulous apartment with Golden Gate Bridge View

  • 5 of 5

Magalli's apartment is five-star in my opinion. Light, bright, beautifully furnished with real 'wow' factors all the way through. Easy access when following instructions - stairs lead to wonderful open plan kitchen (or Cafe Lele) with all mod-cons to allow for self-catering. Living room is 'to die for' with unobstructed views (when the fog allows), cool bean bag corner, amazing full-size dining table and full-screen TV for when you can tear your eyes away from the 360 degree view. Bedroom has two very comfortable beds, could sleep four at a push but one bed per person is more comfortable. Big screen TV in bedroom makes it difficult to get up in the morning! Sofabed plus rollaway bed (rollaway pushed together with the sofa bed) makes big enough space for second couple, though not quite as comfortable. Our second couple had been staying in AirBnBs ranging from isolated cabins to renovated sea containers so the arrangements here were very much appreciated and comfortable, though there are no drapes on the floor to ceiling glass windows, so light sleepers may find it more difficult. The roof deck is spectacular and we kept creeping up there for a viewing of the amazing 360 degree views of the city and the bridge - though it was too chilly and foggy to make the best of it when we visited. The gas BBQ unfortunately would not light when we were there - not sure if the gas had run out, but it was a bit chilly to we decide to eat in the kitchen anyway, no big deal. Can't recommend this highly enough - the Marina district is a fantastic location - 10 minutes walk to Ghiradelli and Fisherman's Wharf in one direction, walk to the Presidio Park easily reached in the other direction.. Marina is a very pleasant walk and area to hang around in. Fort Mason parking lot provided free parking for two nights, despite signs that state 2 hour parking only. We didn't get any problem parking there for three days. Book this apartment, you'll love it like we did.

Amazing place, everything as stated

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and visit our son that has just moved to San Francisco. Very nicely furnished and the views/location were the best.

Parking was a little stressful but doable, don't bring a car if you don't need one.

Hands down one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.

Our family of two adults and two teenage boys spent four nights in this lovely apartment. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge was delightful. It is in a safe neighborhood within walking distance of Fisherman’s Wharf. The balcony and roof-top patio afforded wonderful views. The kitchen was especially well stocked; there were even reusable bags under the sink for visits to the Safeway a few blocks away.

There are a lot of stairs, which were not a concern for us but would be for some. The lights in the hallways all worked so that problem others commented on has been solved.

The beds were comfortable. Thanks to the pull out couch each boy got their own bed. The mattress on the pull out was adequate but not comfortable; this is the only complaint any of us had and my son assures me it was better than sleeping with his brother. The apartment was spacious and clean. The shower had shampoo and conditioner, a pleasant surprise.

Magalli was a pleasure to work with. She answered all of our questions well within the 2 days promised and provided good directions for the lock and garage.

Will Always Have a Special Place in my Heart!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Magalli, the owner of this property, is a sweetheart. She was very responsive, kind-hearted, and really cared about making sure our stay at her place was stress free and memorable. She allowed us to have a small, intimate wedding ceremony on the rooftop deck and it was truly amazing. The property is intricately decorated, clean, well-maintained, and offers some amazing views of both the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. The beds were extremely comfy and kitchen is upgraded/modern as well. The entrance to the rooftop is so awesome and a spiral staircase that dramatically leads to the open deck.

I would also like to point out that the pictures don't capture the true beauty of Magalli's place. You really have to experience it in person. Once you walk in, you get a sense of how big and open the main room is. There is ample natural light that comes in through the windows, which perfectly showcases how beautiful Magalli's property really is.

Parking in the garage is a bit extra, but is a nice option to have. The garage has ample space to park. If you don't want to park in the garage, there is usually parking around the area on the streets.

Speaking of the location, there are so many good restaurants and bars around in the Marina District that are walking distance. It is a good area to get away from the more touristy areas in the city.

All in all, this place is amazing. I am truly grateful to Magalli for allowing us to have our wedding ceremony at her place, and staying there was a real slice of heaven. I really felt like a local being able to wake up, take a run on the beach, and relax on the rooftop with unbelievable views. I honestly cannot wait to have the opportunity to come back to stay at Magalli's property again.
