Totally Amazingl!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a fabulous trip to San Francisco. Aside from San Francisco being such a magical place to visit, we couldn't have stayed at a better spot.

Rayne's apartment is in the perfect location and has the most breath taking views. It literally took my breath away when I walked in the first time. I was also pleased with how open and light and bright the apartment is. There are 3 big windows on 3 sides of the apartment which make you feel you are perched on top of the world.

Rayne has thought of every detail and the apartment is a reflection of this. The cupboards and fridge are stocked with essentials and the furniture and storage arrangements are very efficient. Everything was spotless too!

You are within walking distance of very great restaurants, bars, shops, the beach, and the Golden Gate bridge!! We purchased a 7 day visitor travel pass and found it so easy to get around the city. So much to see and do!! It is also so quiet here, was really ideal. The roof top deck is also a wonderful addition!!

Rayne's qualities as a host are impeccable and the best I have ever encountered. It was a TRUE pleasure dealing with her. I so appreciated all she had done during the reservation process as well. All my questions were always quickly answered and she always went above and beyond providing valuable information.

I was sad to leave and hope to return one day! I would definitely stay here again!! Thanks for everything!!

Beyond Fabulous !!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been back home for several weeks now, but can’t seem to stop reminiscing over this beautiful apartment. San Francisco is a city we want to keep coming back to, and Rayne’s penthouse apartment is definitely where we’ll stay. Located in a beautiful neighbourhood, it’s extremely quiet, yet only a few blocks away from Chestnut Street, full of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, etc. There are several grocery stores and delis all within walking distance, and the bus stop is a mere half block away if you want to go further afield. The apartment itself was easy to find, and there was someone on hand to greet us, and walk us through all the features. To echo what others have said, pack lightly and take advantage of the washer & dryer. Besides, 4 sets of stairs is not something you want to tackle with a jumbo sized suitcase. But trust us, the climb is worth it, as the views are absolutely stunning! Many mornings it was hard to tear ourselves away, and it was especially beautiful to sit and enjoy a drink in the evening and watch the city skyline light up. The deck across from the apartment is shared with the rest of the building, but we had it all to ourselves the few times we sat out on it. The apartment was immaculate – absolutely spotless! While it is a studio, we never felt cramped in any way. I was a little worried about how I’d feel after sleeping on a Murphy bed for a week, but it was very comfortable, and we slept really well. The apartment is fully stocked, and had everything we needed. Any questions we had were quickly answered by Rayne. In fact, from our initial booking, to our departure, the communication was fast and clear. You can tell that she takes great pride and care in ensuring her guests have everything they need.

Five stars all the way !! Thanks again Rayne for everything.

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Marina Penthouse, though not large at just over 600 square feet, was more than enough for two people. It is a very well built, well insulated structure, with new and nice amenities. Upon our arrival the unit was very clean and well organized. During our stay, the weather in San Francisco was rainy, windy and cold; however the unit was cozy, comfortable and warm. It was wonderful having a good quality washer and dryer in the unit as this allowed us to pack lightly. The location is great with views of The Palace of Fine Arts, The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and downtown. The neighborhood was extremely quiet, both day and night. We slept late every day as nothing awoke us. The bus a half block away was very convenient and the Marina has restaurants, coffee shops, a Walgreens, grocery stores and all other necessities nearby. Rayne was always very responsive and helpful whenever contacted

Falling in Love....Again!

  • 5 of 5

Words just can't describe how much we love staying at Rayne's Penthouse Hideaway! Every year we come back to the City and neighborhood where we fell in love, and do it all over again. The views, access to all the best of San Francisco and the Bay Area, care with details, focus on comfort, and feeling of being home are priceless. Every time we arrive and walk into this magical place, we don't know whether to laugh or cry. It really is paradise, and Rayne is an angel to share it with us.
