I have lived in San Francisco for the past four years and am a huge SF Giants fan! I lived on the Peninsula for a time but am so glad to be back in SF. I attended San Francisco State University and have lived in a number of SF neighborhoods...I believe the Marina is the most beautiful, cleanest and safest neighborhood in the City. I hope you'll enjoy my home and neighborhood as much as I do! Staying here, you'll enjoy a quiet, clean home but I'm always close by in case you need anything. During your visit, I stay in the building in a separate sleeping room providing you with comfort and privacy.
Beth purchased this condo in 1999
Some of the reasons I love this area and why I think you will too: you can walk to the beach and enjoy amazing Crissy Fields beach and promenade, excellent restaurants and bars are a 5-minute walk away on Chestnut Street, Safeway is just a 10-minute walk away. There are great biking paths as well as a movie theater, Apple store, spas and hair/nail salons within minutes from our doorway. Even though all these amenities are nearby, the neighborhood is very quiet and family-friendly. I own this apartment and it is in a building with 5 units total so it is quiet and very clean. Staying here, you'll experience what it's like to live like a true San Franciscan. While you are here, I stay in the building in my separate sleeping room so you have privacy during your stay.
The condo is charming with hardwood floors and a small sun porch at the rear. You can watch ships and sailboats as they sail on the Bay from the front window in the living room-truly beautiful! It is genuine San Francisco living at it's finest. Plus, on foggy evenings, you can hear the gentle sound of the fog horns on the Bay.
Everything has been Great! We have had a great reunion with friends and got to do everything we hoped to do. Staying here has been SO nice. It is a special place, wonderful location, perfect size, so comfortable, clean, cute, just an all around great feeling to it.
Thanks so much. You have been a pleasure to work with. We will be leaving by noon on Wednesday. Have a great winter!
Easy to get to, good location, no issues. I enjoyed the stay and I would recommend it to anyone.
We enjoyed five nights at John and Beth's apartment. The location could not have been better. Situated in the Marina district of San Francisco, the apartment was an easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf attractions, as well as the marina boat harbor, The Palace of Fine Arts and Crissy Field. There is a view of the Golden Gate bridge from the street in front and a beautiful bay view from the apartment living room window. I like to get out and exercise in the morning and I appreciated the fact that this area of the city is one of the flatter areas.
Street parking is available, but a parking permit is necessary. Beth helped us with getting ours. In our case, we sent for it well in advance and received it by mail, via Beth. Spaces are tight, but we were always able to find one with in one half a block of the front door.
We appreciated the building security. The front door is accessed by way of a keypad code as was the apartment front door.
The apartment was very comfortable. The living room furniture was comfortable as was the king bed. Of course, we enjoyed sitting at the table in the living room and enjoying the view during meals.
The kitchen was small and lacked a few things (measuring cups, casserole dish) but mostly we did good. The microwave location, on top of the refrigerator, could be a problem for shorter people. But, it is San Francisco, and who wants to cook when there are so many restaurants to choose from?
We can't say enough about Beth and John. They were great to work with. We met John shortly after we arrived. He let us know we could contact him if we needed anything.
Once back home, our security deposit was returned promptly.
Fantastic quiet location and easy walk to great restaurants and shops in bustling Chestnut Street. Lovely half hour walk along the water to Fisherman's Wharf fir day trip departures. Apartment was well equipped and had a lovely view and only a block to the water. Would highly recommend this accommodation.
All pictures and statements about this property are accurate. It's a delight to sit at the table in front of the window and see Alcatraz, watch the fog lift over Marin, and then late in the day come back in. The apartment is literally one block to Marina Green and a short walk along the water to many different places, such as Crissy Field and Fisherman's Wharf. It was amazing to be so close to Marina Green yet the apartment was so quiet and calm. The Safeway is 10 minutes away as are lots of restaurants in the other direction on Chestnut street. The apartment was immaculately clean and very comfortable, even for those of us with bad backs. The king-size bed was comfortable and the linens and towels first class. The internet worked flawlessly. I would stay there again the next time in SF. The owners are accommodating and available to answer any questions, but the apartment was just as we expected so I had no questions.
This beautifully appointed one-bedroom flat is the perfect place to stay in San Francisco. There is a Safeway within walking distance; Chestnut Street is a few blocks away, brimming with fantastic restaurants and boutiques. Out the front door is the Marina, with stunning views both of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. And less than a mile away is the Presidio, with its free shuttle to downtown SF running periodically.
Beth and John were wonderful hosts, ensuring we had all we needed, yet giving us the space to have our experience. Needless to say, when we come back to the City by the Bay, this is the place we'll stay.
The condo is in the Marina just one half a block away from the beach. The Marina District is one of the most upscale and desirable neighborhoods in the City. Crissy Fields Beach is absolutely beautiful and includes a promenade which runs along the beach with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, bike paths, picnic areas with BBQ's, lunch and coffee spots and pier fishing. You can also walk to the Palace of the Fine Arts (about a 10 minute walk) the Powell Street Cable Car pick up station and Fisherman's Wharf. Chestnut Street is a 5 minute walk away which has outstanding restaurants, cool bars, a movie theater and both boutique clothing stores and global brands. Trendy Union Street is a 15 minute walk away and has world-class shopping, restaurants, bars and personal services. Pier 39 is also within walking distance- about a 25 minute walk. You can rent bicycles and enjoy a scenic bike ride. Just head to the Marina Green, about 1 minute from the front door, and enjoy safe and wide bike lanes with no traffic to deal with. You can bike into the Crissy Field National Park (The largest natural city park in the U.S.) and ride along the beach right to the Golden Gate Bridge. Bicycles are on one side of the Golden Gate Bridge and pedestrains are on the other for safety and enjoyment. Walking or riding your bike across the Golden Gate Bridge is an absolute must do experience! One of my favorite day trips is to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge and ride into Sausalito. Have lunch in Sausalito which is a beautiful city full of great restaurants and art galleries. Then catch an afternoon ferry from Sausalito back over to San Francisco. You just park your bikes right on the ferry and enjoy a mini-cruise on the San Francisco Bay.
