Great Place in the heart of the Marina district

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed apartment in a clean, well maintained building in a very safe and walkable area of San Francisco. Rayne provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is a bus stop on the corner and you can get anywhere in the city quite easily. San Francisco public transit is very good, no need for a car. Lots of places to eat and drink on Chestnut and Lombard Streets, just a few blocks away. The outdoor patio area has beautiful views and is perfect when the sun shines on a warm day. I would both recommend to others and return myself.

Lovely, Comfortable Studio with a great host!

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a week at Rayne's lovely studio. I have rented from VRBO and Airbnb several times - this was for sure one of the best experiences. From the initial questions that I had to the booking process and all thru the stay, Rayne was quick in her replies and very professional and helpful. Carolina, the person that manages the apartment, met me upon arrival and gave me a tour of the features, answered questions, etc. There was a lovely welcome basket with various snacks and even included some pears from Carolina's pear tree!

The Studio is located on a lovely street in the Marina District - really nice block with gorgeous houses and landscaping. Half a block away, at the end of the street, is the Palace of Fine Arts which has beautiful grounds to explore. Two blocks away is the Bay, the Marina, and the beaches. The neighborhood is a quiet, residential area that felt very safe to me - I walked a lot both during the day and after dark and always felt safe. 10 minutes away is Chestnut Street which has lots of great restaurants and shopping - try Lucca Deli for authentic italian deli sandwiches and prepared foods. A bit further away, up the hill, are the Cow Hollow and Pacific Heights neighborhoods with more fun shopping and lovely homes.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked for anyone that might want to cook. The bed, which is actually a Murphy Bed that pulls down from the wall, was very comfortable. The apartment is on the roof of the building and has 3 large windows - one on each side - that provide panoramic views of the Palace of Fine Arts (which lights up at night), the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay, and the San Francisco Skyline. Alcatraz is view-able as well. It was very quiet, both during the day and in the evening. Note that there are 4 flights of stairs to be climbed to reach the studio which Rayne notes in the listing - this worked out fine for me(I got my workout for sure! Lol);however, just something to be aware of.

Great stay. Thank you Rayne!

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful studio apartment: beautifully furnished, roomy, with views to write home about! The Golden Gate Bridge from one window, the Institute of the Arts from another (take some time to wander here and in the Presidio). We walked everywhere, or took the local bus, dined locally and discovered the entire Marina district. A delight.

And yes, there are four flights to the penthouse, but the journey is worth the view, and you'll come home healthier for the exertion!!

PERFECT PLACE !!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed eight wonderful days in San Francisco. This Marina apartment is a little piece of heaven with fantastic views. It was an excellent and convenient base from which to explore the city and Marin County, and provided common living space that a hotel can't offer. There is nothing about the apartment not to love - the location, the view, the furnishings, the extra personal touches by Rayne our wonderful landlady. Thank you so much, Rayne. We look forward to spending another vacation with you again next year. We’ll be back for sure!

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.
