Overview

Glen Park Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Imagine sipping your morning cup of coffee while enjoying the beautiful views from our custom designed San Francisco home. Located in Diamond Heights, the property sits high on a hill above Noe Valley and Glen Park and is the PERFECT place for a peaceful getaway for professionals, corporate executives, or vacationers.

Every room is BRIGHT and AIRY with sweeping views of the SF Skyline & Bay or the Sunset District out to the Pacific Ocean. The Living Room, with fireplace and balcony, has spectacular views of downtown and the Bay Bridge, as does the second bedroom upstairs. Offering all the comforts of home, amenities include a guest computer with broadband wireless internet access, a full entertainment center with a flat panel LCD television, cable and unlimited complimentary Netflix Instant Download Movies, a baby grand piano and a small library of contemporary and classic books.

The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, industrial gas range with indoor grill, super-quiet dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee and espresso maker, electric kettle, rice cooker, food processor, water filter, spices and more. The expandable dining room table seats up to 10 people.

The master bedroom is located upstairs and has a king sized bed, television with DVD/VHS and balcony with views of western San Francisco out to the Pacific Ocean. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, a futon, TV with VHS and a full view of the SF skyline and Bay. All beds are super comfortable.

The upstairs bathroom has a skylight, a jacuzzi-style bath tub and the downstairs bathroom has a shower.

You will also have free unlimited long distance phone calls across the US and Canada and free calls to anyone worldwide with a Skype account.

Located just 10 - 15 minutes by car from downtown, you can quickly get to popular destinations such as Union Square, the Moscone Center, and the SF Giants' ballpark. Any part of the City is accessible within 20 minutes or less, including Golden Gate Park, Golden Gate Bridge, The Presidio, Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf.

Just three minutes from the freeway (280), the house offers easy access to San Francisco Airport (15 mins), Oakland/Berkeley (30 mins), Stanford University and Silicon Valley (30-45 mins), Sausalito, Tiburon, and Mill Valley (30 mins); other popular destinations are also within driving distance, including wine country (Napa/Sonoma 1 hour), Carmel/Monterey (2 hours), Lake Tahoe (3 hours) and Yosemite National Park (4 hours).

A car is useful, but public transportation is available two blocks away. Local amenities such as 24-hour Safeway, restaurants, bank, post office, coffee shop and parks with playgrounds, hiking trails and tennis courts are all available within walking distance.

Unlike most of San Francisco, there is a driveway to park your car, as well as ample street parking!

This is the best accommodation value in San Francisco. If you compare our rates with a hotel, remember they charge on average $30 for parking per night, plus the San Francisco hotel tax and the sales tax to the rate quoted by the hotel (14% plus 8.5%!!). Our rates include all taxes. So why stay in a pricey San Francisco hotel or sterile corporate apartment when our home offers twice as much for half the price? Deal directly with the owner, not an agent or property manager and enjoy your home away from home.

If you are interested in staying in our beautiful home, please send us a little information about you and your party, as we like to get to know a bit about our guests. Thank you!

About Ria

We love to travel and find that staying in homes is a much better way to experience a city than in an impersonal hotel. We both work and live in Silicon Valley during the week and this house has been our weekend getaway place when we are not traveling elsewhere. It's a beautiful place to take a break and yet feel like you are on top of the world!

Ria purchased this townhome in 1997

Why Ria chose San Francisco

We bought our second home here because of the amazing views and easy access to all parts of the city, as well as the north, south and east bay.

What makes this townhome unique

Diamond Heights is a well-kept secret in that it is close to everything, but you are on top of the world. It is quiet and peaceful and a great place to relax and unwind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the condo. The location is GREAT, so easy to get to the BART. The condo had everything we needed for our get-away. Beautiful furnishings and very comfortable.

We will be back. Thank you !!!!!

Hilltop retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a week and enjoyed the quiet, peaceful neighborhood and the spectacular views after sightseeing all day. This was a comfortable and clean townhouse, very quiet . The bedrooms and beds were large and comfortable. Great kitchen with everything you need. There is a new 35 bus to take you up or down the hill, so we used that and the 52 to take us to the Castro station or the Glen Park BART. It was an easy walk to Safeway and Glen Park Canyon. We managed without a car for the week. Our only complaint was the new couch/futon in the living room -- it was hard for any of us to get comfortable on it. So, the kids hung out on the very comfortable bed/futon upstairs, one of us took the comfy living room chair, and one of us sat on a bar stool. Overall, it was a great place with plenty of space for us all. I loved the personalized keyless entry. The owners were responsive to all of our inquiries .

Great place to stay in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent 4 nights at the townhouse. The views are certainly as advertised. The townhouse was clean and prepared when we arrived. We came in on a late flight and entry was very simple. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and chocolates. It was a nice touch.

The beds were comfortable as were the rest of the furnishings. The kitchen and laundry facilities were very nice. The townhouse is located at the top of some winding streets, so GPS is very helpful. The location was actually very convenient to many locations in SF if you have a car.

I would recommend for a stay in San Francisco.

Well appointed apartment, beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my 2 adult sons the last few days of May. Nice apartment, well maintained with a stunning view of downtown San Francisco and the Bay Bridge from a ridge South of downtown. The ridge gives rise to an interesting micro-climate that changes hourly and is very San Francisco, changing from sunny to misty to cold to cloudy and back any way. We had a wonderful stay, the apartment was as described, 2 large bedrooms, one with two queen beds, 2 baths and well appointed. We had a great time!
