Property description

This is a cute 1910s house, in the trendy Cow Hollow/Marina neighborhood of San Francisco - between Russian Hill and The Presidio, walking distance from the San Francisco Bay, two blocks from Union St., twenty minutes pleasant walk through Fort Mason park to Fisherman's Wharf, close to the Palace of Arts and the Exploratorium. This area is really safe, pretty, and close to the Bay/Crissy Field. The intersection of Union St and Steiner St is one of many hubs of activity in this neighborhood. The #'s 22, 41, and 45 buses pass by this intersection. It also has many restaurants, bars, wine bars, boutiques, etc nearby. There is also a church on this corner, if you're into that (and this church does NOT have annoying/loud bells, so no worries there!)
Also, it is an ideal location for day trips to other parts of the SF Bay Area. The house has a beautiful fenced front yard, a private backyard patio and parking in the front yard behind the gate. The house has 2 separate floors/flats with 2 separate entrances; they are not connected. The second floor, which we offer to our guests, has got the original douglas fir hardwood floors and lots of windows (we keep the downstairs unit for ourselves). It has 2 bedrooms (very quiet), a sun room with a futon and double pane windows, living room, kitchen, mini office by the kitchen and one bathroom. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and a 52' HDTV. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, dining table, and connects to the sun room with a sliding door. We have a small office space by the kitchen with wireless internet. The kitchen and the living room are divided by a bar from where you can comfortably watch shows on the huge flat screen HDTV or Blu-Ray disks, or you can do so from the living room. The house was remodeled in 2009 - all stainless steel appliances, furniture, countertops, and other amenities are new.
Corporate rentals are welcome.

About the owner: we LOVE this city.

Why the Owner Chose Marina:
We were lucky to find a two story house in this highly desirable neighborhood. We are close to restaurants, outdoor activities, museums, etc. - many of them are walking distance or approachable by public transportation. We enjoy all the city can offer and would love to share it with our guests!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Cow Hollow/Marina is a generally affluent neighborhood in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Our place is just two blocks away from trendy Union Street with its shops, health spas, wellness centers, restaurants, and cafes. You can walk to the Marina, San Francisco Bay, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Palace of Arts, the Presidio, Fillmore and Chestnut Streets. You can jog or walk to Crissy Field and Golden Gate Bridge. You can also travel by bus and cable car to Union Square, Golden Gate Park and to world class museums like the SF Museum of Modern Art, the Asian Art Museum, the De Young and the Legion of Honor. Ferries, bus, or bike rental can take you to Sausalito and Tiburon.
