Overview

San Francisco Condo Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront location - beautiful, designer condo

Spacious LUXURY unit in chic, desirable Marina district. This space is the size of most two bedrooms and it is 3 houses (not blocks) away from famed waterfront, GG views & Ft Mason. STR permit #-0000323. You will see the water as soon as you walk out the door and at my corner you can walk along the waterfront promenade with GG bridge views in front of you - famous around the world. Wander down with coffee to look for seals or the catch sunset over Golden Gate Bridge. Grab coffee at nearby Starbucks or Ft Mason. Walk to Fisherman's wharf, bike across the bridge, or walk the beach at Crissy Field. A very special location. If you want a car for part of your visit, a Subaru Impreza is available for rent by the hour or day if you need a car. I live one level below so can help with anything you might need.

Unit has beautiful hardwood floors, oriental rugs, designer decor with formal dining room, living room w/ fireplace and expansive kitchen for dedicated cooks. The very large master bedroom suite has a king-size bed with new master bath that includes double sinks, glassed in shower with rain head fixture, 6 ft tub for bubblebaths. French doors open from bedroom onto to an outdoor deck with bistro table and chaise lounge overlooking gardens below. Another 1/2 BA along hallway.

The marina is a fabulous, quiet, safe and fun neighborhood. See reviews - everyone loves it. Spotlessly maintained. Easy access to everything you want. Easy parking. Alcatraz, Ft. Mason (see pic below) are all around the corner.

Chestnut street is few blocks away where there are award winning restaurants, shops, coffee houses and wine bars. Be a part of this very chic neighborhood where only multi-million dollar homes surround you.

Groceries one block away and great farmer's market every Sunday at Ft. Mason -a 2 minute walk. Kitchen fully furnished with all utensils for you. I live in same building so if you need anything special you can ask,

The Marina is a foot friendly neighborhood. Walk or rent bikes to Golden Gate Bridge. Bus or taxi access only block away and takes you to all key areas with no bus change. No need for car, but parking on street is available and across the street at Marina if needed.

Includes: 2 flat screen TVs with cable, DVD, washer/dryer, free Wi-Fi.

- If you want to rent the car, please be aware to process your license you should set up the rental at least a week or two in advance with "Getaround" - the car share service I use"

Nearby: Fisherman's Wharf, Whale watching, and more...

About laura thompson

I am a long time San Francisco resident and have lived in many neighborhoods this is by far the best - next to the waterfront, yet quiet and serene. I love this home in its uniquely beautiful location and hope you will treat it like your own home when you are here. I have traveled around the world and can help you find wonderful things to do and see in this city. You will enjoy it I know! The truly is one of the best cities in the world.

laura thompson purchased this condo in 2009

Why laura thompson chose San Francisco

It is the best neighborhood and location in all of San Francisco - it has the best access to fun tourist things, fabulous restaurants (including 5 stars) and chic shops, wine tasting, yacht clubs, biking and romantic seaside walks - it has the best of everything. I have been around the world and came back here to stay.

What makes this condo unique

The waterfront is so close you will wander down to watch the beautiful sunsets over Golden Gate bridge and maybe see a seal or dolphin bobbing in the surf. Spectacular neighborhood and location especially with the yacht clubs and sailboats all around you.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed this home so much. The location is perfect, you step out the front door and just down half a block you have Fort Mason with a great walking/running paths and beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge. You are a close walk to many attractions that you will want to visit. Great restaurants and shops on Chestnut Street. The Safeway grocery store is just a block away. Very quiet street and enjoyed all the house had to offer. We had plenty of space and appreciated having a full kitchen, dining room and living room space. The Master bedroom is huge and the bathroom is very nice. We enjoyed the balcony off of the Master bedroom. We took an Uber a few times and was a very efficient way to get around the city. Laura was wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions before our stay and had great suggestions on what to do while on vacation. We would love to stay here again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Description and previous reviews are better than advertised. The pictures don't do justice to the property as it definitely exceeded my expectations. It was a perfect respite from all the hustle and bustle of Super Bowl weekend. A great location as dining on Chestnut St is only a few blocks away and the Wharf a scenic 20 minute walk by the water. Laura was a great host, happy to answer any questions and offer advice on the area. We'll definitely be back soon.

Beautiful Apartment in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated, spacious one bedroom condo in the Marina District was perfect for a week-long getaway for my husband and me. The owner was incredibly easy to communicate with and very helpful with suggestions. Less than a block from the water and an easy walk to grocery stores, many restaurants and shops, Ft. Mason, the Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge. I especially loved the well-equipped kitchen and very large, comfortable master bedroom. Thanks so much for helping us have a wonderful trip! - Melissa

Look no further

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rental in the Marina look no further than Laura's on Webster. The location is perfect. It is on a quiet street that is a half block from the bay where to the West is the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge, to the South is Cow Hollow and Union street, to the North is the bay and to the East is Fisherman's Wharf and all within walking distance depending on the weather. There is so much just within walking distance not to mention the rest of this beautiful city. We used Uber a lot so we didn't need a rental car. We flew into SFO airport where we bought a 3 day "Muni Pass" and a Bart pass at the visitor information center inside the airport which was all we needed. We took Bart to the Embarcadero Station and then took Uber to the apartment.

Other reviews have described this apartment very well and I can only agree with what they said. I will add we will be back sooner than later and will definitely stay here. It has everything you could need and more. Laura is very helpful and only a text away.

You can't go wrong on this rental!!!!

Excellent location for a San Francisco gateaway

  • 5 of 5

This nice apartment is located in quiet and peaceful neighborhood, just a few steps from Marina and short walk to most attractions in the Pier 39 area. Very close to the Chestnut street where a large number of great restaurants are located. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. The apartment was clean and very lovely. We would definitely recommend this place to stay in San Fran area.
