"I spent a wonderful month in this apartment, and loved every minute. I am a Washingtonian who lived in SF 10 years ago. I had the opportunity to spend a month in SF while working and was in need of a furnished apartment. I know the city and knew where I wanted to be. My friends and family will tell you I am picky about where I live and where I stay - and Kathy and Rick's wonderful apartment did NOT disappoint. The location is perfect - for those of you who don't know the city - the Marina is a great, safe, convenient neighborhood. This apartment is 3 blocks from the water and amazing views of the Golden Gate bridge, Crissy Field, and great (flat) walking/running/biking paths along the Bay. From the front door you can see the amazing Palace of Fine Arts, and walk 3 blocks south and you're on Chestnut with its wonderful markets, restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops and bakeries. A couple more blocks and you're on Union with more of the same. A few blocks east and you're in the Presidio. Up the hill and you're in Pac Heights, with what have to be some of the most gorgeous views on this earth.
The apartment comes with a parking space, which was great for the couple of times I rented a car or my friends came to visit, but it's also steps from the MUNI bus which is SF's great bus system (30, 30X closest, and 22, 28 and others a few blocks away). The apartment itself is really beautiful. It's spacious, well-appointed, and very comfortable. The linens, towels, kitchen appliances, washer/dryer, TVs, (cable w/ premium channels and On demand!) - are all quality. There is lots of closet space, the fireplace was a plus on chilly SF nights, and the water pressure in the shower was great!
Booking the apartment was easy - Kathy was wonderfully responsive and answered all of my questions before I arrived. Once I arrived, both Kathy and Rick met me in the apartment and showed me around. They responded immediately to any questions, and were really friendly and sweet. I mentioned I wanted to rent a bike for my stay, and Rick offered one to borrow. They were just incredibly accommodating, and very nice to deal with.
If I could've stayed longer, I would have. If you are looking for a gorgeous, comfortable place with terrific owners, snag this one!"
