About the property

Studio type Suite 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

You can see the waterfront when arrive at the entrance of this special location in jeweled neighborhood - only 3 doors away from the Marina (hence the name). There is also a unique, spacious private garden exclusively available to this studio where you can enjoy indoor/outdoor living if you like. STR permit #-0000323. No street noise whatsoever! Enjoy Golden Gate views at the corner. "Take your coffee on the patio or stroll down to waterfront and contemplate the views of Golden Gate bridge. You may spot a seal or two bobbing in the surf! This light-filled space offers a unique advantage with its large private garden. The garden is as large as the indoor space and is unusual in this chic neighborhood. Walk along the waterfront promenade to Fisherman's Wharf and enjoy Ft Mason. 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. Nearby Ft. Mason offers the famous Greens waterfront restaurant, a farmer's market every Sunday and a yummy food truck neighborhood gathering every Friday night March - Sept. A little further along the shoreline and you are at Ghiradelli Square and Fsiherman's Wharf. Go the other direction to Palace of Fine Arts, and the beaches of GG bridge. No need for a car. Great taxi, bus access and even rental car services nearby. I live upstairs so can help with anything thing you might need. You are just a few blocks away from many great restaurants and shops, wine bars, food markets (and I do mean GREAT Zagat rated) to distract you on Chestnut street. Lovely french doors open on to a lush, completely private garden with flowering trees. Light streams into this flat from garden windows all around. Garden patio adds wonderful character to the unit and almost as large as the unit itself. Apt is very private - no other homes or people in sight. Beautiful Mediterranean and Art Deco architecture all around. Queen bed with down comforter and lots of comfy pillows. There is room for a child to sleep as well on a twin pull out chair. Office area for work space too if needed- hopefully you are just having fun.

Easy parking nearby and additional free parking at the marina across street. I live in same building so if you need anything special you can ask,

About The Owner

I am a long time SF resident and love my international city and helping others discover its beauty and nooks and crannies. This neighborhood is one of the few areas where you really don't need a car and everyone is safe strolling at all times.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose San Francisco

I love walking by the waterfront for sunsets and never tire of looking at the GG bridge. This is my favorite neighborhood with gorgeous views that everyone thinks of when they see pictures of San Francisco. Neighborhood has a fun vibe with lots of fabulous restaurants, wine bars and shops.

What makes this condo unique

Unique and private garden setting. Beautiful architecture, quiet neighborhood with postcard-like vistas everywhere you look. First floor (so no stairs to climb either). Walking distance to main attractions or San Francisco.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the stay at your VRBO unit this past week. We had a wonderful time in SF and the location could not been more ideal. Walking to the bay for sun rise & sun set were a real treat for us. On our last day we walked the Golden Gate Bridge.

We will always remember this stay and highly recommend to all we meet.

The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here over Thanksgiving. It was the perfect location. One-half block from the Bay with views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. 1 1/2 blocks to the Safeway. Walking distance to the Embarcadero and Fisherman's Wharf. An easy walk to the Presidio and Crissy Field. Such a quite neighborhood but so close to all that San Fran has to offer. The apartment was so comfortable and quiet with a beautiful secluded back patio. Laura was just a phone call away if we needed anything and was so responsive and helpful prior to our arrival. If this apartment is available on our next visit, we will definitely stay again.

Peaceful and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet, peaceful environment here.

The unit was clean , and close to everything we needed.

Our only disappointment was the bed. It appeared to be a type of fold out wall bed,

that was set up. The bed was against the wall , on one side , thereby making it impossible to

get out of in the middle of the night without disturbing my partner. The mattress was comfortable.

Laura was very accommodating, allowing us a late checkout on departure day, and

communicated well with all of our questions when we booked. Thank you Laura.

Owner's Response: So sorry if there was any confusion...while the bed frame is attached to wall I use it as a permanent bed with a standard queen mattress with a thick topper (all brand new)and very sturdy and comfortable. The bed frame stays permanently in place. Since this is a studio the space on only one side of bed is narrower. I have moved it out further based on your suggestion. Based on my reviews it seems to have worked for my guests.

Super impressed and worth every penny

  • 5 of 5

We travel quite a bit but decided to try VRBO rather than a hotel and we could not be happier! This condo near the wharf is a treat. We had dinner on the huge, private patio last night and it was the perfect setting. We highly recommend this. Thank you Laura!

Great apartment in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a most enjoyable three days here. Laura was extremely helpful and accommodating in letting us check in early after an overnight train journey. The apartment is in a wonderful position, within walking distance of views of the Golden Gate Bridge, and local streets with plenty of attractive places to eat, shop and enjoy the atmosphere. We took the ferry to Sausalito one day for more wonderful views of the bay. The weather was glorious, spring blossom was out, the garden air was scented with jasmine. We enjoyed sitting out in the morning sun with a cup of coffee. We would certainly recommend it and would stay there again.
