Marina house description

This family home (3600 Sq Ft) is located in a beautiful part of San Francisco on Chestnut Street right next to the stunning Presidio National Park and the gorgeous Marina. This area is filled with ocean beach and forest trails, wonderful shops, world-renown restaurants/bars (both casual and formal) and all types of sports/entertainment activities.

Our newly renovated home features a prominent view of the Palace of Fine Arts from virtually every room plus a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts from the Master Bedroom.

All the rooms on the main floor flow into one another with open areas that ultimately open onto the large tiled deck with relaxing lounge, gas BBQ and prominent views. The comfortable formal living room features a wood-burning fireplace and the formal dining room. A stylish family room, Tuscan-style kitchen and powder room finish off this floor.

The deck provides access to the private garden with fire pit, water feature, and heated sitting area along with a heated game room. In addition, on the downstairs level, is a laundry room, and media room with large flat screen and surround sound.

In the media room, you will enjoy Wii games, Netflix and cable. A cozy couch folds out to a queen bed turning this room into the 4th bedroom. A zen-like bathroom with shower rounds out the room.

On the upper floor, there are three bedrooms with a king, queen and bunk beds respectively and three baths each with heated floors. The master bedroom has a sitting area and fireplace plus a bath with jacuzzi tub and full view. The second bedroom has a view and comfortable desk plus bath with skylight and rainshower. The third bedroom is great for kids with bunk beds and full bath.
Our home comfortably sleeps 4-5 adults and 2-3 children...

Our home is not suitable for children under the age of 7.

We also have parking available for one car.

This spacious, three-story, architect-designed and elegantly-furnished house is our private home when we are not traveling. It is located in one of the most desirable San Francisco neighborhoods and is the perfect short-term residence for professionals, corporate executives, or vacationers.

This is an ideal location for couples, families or friends who are also interested in nearby activities such as: Golf, Sailing, Walking or Riding Bikes to the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39 tourist area, Exploratorium, Disney Family Museum, Presidio Bowling, or Sausalito.

There is so much to do in this area and with easy access to Marin, Napa and Sonoma too. Carmel and Monterey are just two hours away and Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park are four hours away.

When you compare these rates with a hotel, remember to add the 14% San Francisco hotel tax. Many San Francisco visitors don't realize all the taxes involved until they see their final bill.

A property manager is close by if there are needs while you are staying at our home.

Walk through the newly built Lucas - Industrial Light & Animation facility! Plus our favorite Starbucks...sit and have a cup of coffee while gazing at the Palace of Fine Arts. Bike riding is also a big draw through the Presidio and Marina... If you like to golf, you need to play TPC Harding Park, home of the Presidents Cup & Charles Schwab Cup or just up the hill from our house is the Presidio Golf Course. No matter what you do here...you won't be bored!...moreless

                            We are a very well travelled California family of 6 (16,21,25,26) . We have lived and gone to school in the Bay Area and know San Francisco's neighborhoods and nice hotels fairly well. We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to stay in 5 star hotels throughout the world. Nothing prepared us for the luxury , sophistication and views offered by this beautiful home. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for an incredible opportunity . We walked everywhere. restaurants, shopping , and sight seeing all easily accessible . The quality interior design throughout this property made the decision to dine in or out a difficult choice. My husband was content to sit in a comfortable upstairs chair and read for many afternoons with the Golden Gate Bridge and Palace of Fine Art just over the top of his book. We were content that he was content. Our sort-of adult children were happy to return to this home front much earlier than normal. For all 6 of us, this home was the unexpected highlight of the entire vacation . Thank you so much for sharing your home.

                            This was our second venture as a family to the San Francisco area, and we were certainly not disappointed in this home. A family of 5, with teenagers aged 13, 15 and 17, we wanted a family friendly area with great access to everything SF has to offer. The location is wonderful - just off a main road, but adjacent to the Presidio and close to many restaurants, coffee and even an urgent care center nearby. The home is very nicely appointed, and it was great that all the kids had their own bedroom. Note that 3 of the bedrooms are on the top floor, while the 4th bedroom doubles as the media room on the walkout basement level with a pullout bed. All have their own en-suite bathrooms - something have at home and were hoping to have on vacation as well. We have stayed in numerous homes throughout the US, and have had our share of a few that we would not revisit. This home stands out above most others - and we would highly recommend it for the more discerning family with older, more mature kids (there is some artwork that might need to be covered for younger kids - just a heads up...). Great location - great home - nice kitchen, and close to so much!

                            This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful home. We had a truly incredible time at one of the best homes and locations in San Francisco. Incredibly close to the great shops and restaurants on Chestnut Street, the serenity and beauty of the Presidio, the Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Bridge and so much more. The owners took great care in creating this wonderful home with first class furnishings and were a pleasure to work with. We had a great time at this property and would absolutely come back again. We feel very fortunate to be able to experience the beauty of San Francisco in such a fabulous setting.

                            The interior of the home was absolutely beautiful and spacious and clean. If you are used to nice hotels this home will not disappoint! I wanted to take home the pillow I slept on. The outdoor living areas were an added bonus - gorgeous ambiance, relaxing, and spectacular views. The pool table provided our young adult children with hours of fun. Some nights we needed the outdoor heaters and fire pit and they were very easy to turn on and off - a push of a button, turn of a key, or a flip of a switch. Jason and his brother give you the low-down on the entire house at check-in and are only a text or call away if you have any questions at all. The pictures of this place do not do it justice.I hope to be back to this vacation house again someday...it was perfect...I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if you have a group that wants to experience the whole city! AREA: The Palace of Fine Arts and all its beauty is practically in your backyard and my 20 something kids all enjoyed walking to the Golden Gate Bridge. We had no car and got everywhere walking or a short cab ride to various attractions. We were able to walk to many great local restaurants/bars along Chestnut St. every night (Tipsy Pig, Izzy's). Dinner reservations in SF are far from necessary but helpful...especially on weekends. Down the street was a small food market and deli that gave us everything we needed. We also went on an incredible SF tour (The Real San Francisco Tour...we went on the urban tour...highly recommended) This is a real SF experience that has you walking/ riding/shopping your way through the various districts.. only for small groups under 12 people...book it ahead of time. This beautiful home was centrally located to all that we did in SF. When we didn't walk somewhere, we spent no more than $15-20 tops for cab rides to get everywhere we needed to be across the various districts. A great location that gives you more than all the amenities of home!

                            The entire family really enjoyed this place. Our older kids loved the fact they not only had their own rooms , but also their own bath. It is a beautiful and spacious home, that was good to just spread out and relax within. The music system was easily adapted to our computer and iPhones as well. The garage allowed us to rent bikes over multiple day's and store securely in the garage. Local restaurants and stores where all we really needed. From this location we were able to bike and ride cable cars to everyplace we had planned and still get back for dinner and relax. We had some pretty big delays in our flights and the owners still met us in the wee hours of the night to welcome us, and show us around. WE all want to stay there again!

Look at the window at the Palace of Fine Arts and watch the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. You will get spoiled if you stay here.

                            Our family truly enjoyed our stay at this property while we were vacationing in San Francisco. The property was centrally located to many attractions and within walking distance to quaint restaurants, food markets, and retail shops. While sitting on the balcony, we were able to enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the city including the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts. The home is located in a lovely neighborhood and the accommodations were excellent. The listing description and photos are accurate. The furnishings in the home are upscale yet comfortable. The decor has a a Tuscan feel. Very nicely appointed. The owner is amicable and an excellent resource for the neighborhood attractions. We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting San Francisco.

                            Our family of five spent three weeks driving through California, and without a doubt, Jason's rental was BY FAR the best place to stay! From the great communication prior to making our reservation, to Robert's fabulous tour of the property upon arrival everything was perfect. Every amenity one could ask for was found at this home. Great towels, sheets, stocked kitchen and laundry room. The kids LOVED the media room and pool table and hubby and I enjoyed our nightly ritual of sipping a bottle of wine by the fire pit in the gorgeous area outside. We could not have asked for anything more. This rental is a MUST if you are staying in beautiful San Francisco!!!! :)

                            Our family spent a wonderful two weeks at this beautiful house in the Marina district of San Francisco, next to the Presidio. The home is immaculate and it is obvious that the owners take extraordinary care in the maintenance and upkeep of it. The house looks like it is ready for a high-end magazine photo shoot! This is the first time that we have rented a vacation home when visiting a large city, and it worked out beautifully. The home offers gorgeous living space, bedrooms and great outdoor areas (most with breathtaking views of Palace of Fine Arts and Golden Gate Bridge.) The owners are extremely gracious and accommodating and very responsive to all needs and requests (including finding a babysitter for us at the last minute:) We had the incredible good fortune of watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July from the beautiful decks. We hope to visit again in the very near future and would strongly recommend the home to visitors who are seeking a high-end stay in a private home in one of San Francisco's nicest neighborhoods.

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, girls getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                            First off......location, location, location. Second.....the attention to detail that went into the renovation and the upkeep of this great house is second to none. Everything was top quality, clean and very functional. A great blend of modern house technology with great style and furnishings. Jason met me at the start of our stay and was a warm and welcoming host. He went out of his way to show us everything the house had to offer and this really added to our stay and enjoyment. The outside billiard area was terrific and a fun spot for our family of six to play and recap the days events. His restaurant recommendations were alos spot on. The house was large, clean, safe, cool, and the owner was top notch. Look no further than this rental. No regrets from the Clarke family.
