"We love SF. After 10+ visits and staying all over (Marina, Embarcadero, Nob Hill, Financial District, Telegraph Hill, Union Square, Tenderloin ...even Haight Ashbury) we decided to try the Castro District. It was FABULOUS... no regrets! The apartment is unbelievably large for a SF rental. It's clean, comfy, great shower, nice bed, plush towels and has a well-stocked kitchen. The neighborhood feels safe and has various transportation options (bus, subway, electric trolley) that are all within a leisurely 1-10 minute walk from your door. Lots of options for food are within 5-10 minute walk of your door too...including a grocery store if you decide to cook at “home”. I searched numerous places (both VRBOs and hotels) and after showing him all the options, he picked this place. He absolutely loved it and I did too. It’s a great find…. try it… you’ll be happy that you did.
Hints: Try Mama Ji's for lunch - best Dim Sum around …especially the shrimp cilantro dumplings....yum. Take in a baseball game if you can (dress in layers) …go Giants! Go for Golden Gate Park Segway tour … we’re both 60 years young and had no problem. For breath-taking views, bike across the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito (Note: you WILL be sore afterwards; they don't call it "Blazing Saddles" for nothing!). There's great museums, endless restaurants, bars and live music, there's Muir Woods, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, cable car rides, etc, etc. etc. The list just goes on. You will run out of time far before you run out of things to do and explore. And best of all…. this apartment is a great jumping off point for doing as much or as little as you choose!!!"
