About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, patio, state of the art kitchen, sleeps 4

Located just 5 or so minutes' walk to the Bay and to magnificent views of GG Bridge and Alcatraz, our cottage offers a real San Francisco experience (with luxury!). It nestles behind one of San Francisco's lovely 'painted lady' Victorians. Fully DETACHED, rose-covered, it is surrounded by gardens and was completely renovated by us a few years ago. It is inviting, light and airy and has its own private patio. It is safe and secluded yet just a stone's throw from vibrant, chic, Union Street where San Franciscans come to dine and shop. The best and most desirable neighborhood of San Francisco!

No other lister will treat you as well as we do! When you arrive, you will find the fridge stocked with juice, milk, eggs, cream, yoghurt, sodas and there will be cereal and muffins, tea and coffee, other staples and excellent toiletries, all for you. There will be a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers awaiting you, great linens, robes and many other extras.
Restaurants, cafes and boutiques, banks, beauty salons, buses and taxis one block away. One convenience store 100 yards away, another within 200 yards. Small park across the street and a library in a lovely heritage building 50 yards away.

Everyone who has stayed here has loved it and our guests constantly tell us: 'We wish we had discovered this spot years ago!'

Two lovely bedrooms (one with California King bed, the other with Queen Size Bed and doors onto patio). Perfect for 2 couples, a family with children or a couple looking for a romantic retreat.

Furnished to a high standard. Fully equipped kitchen with dining table, living room with wood burning stove (there is also central heating), tumbled- tiled bathroom with deep soaking tub, small private patio with table, chairs and sun lounger, central heating, DSL wireless, large flat screen TV with Cable, DVD player, CD player, dishwasher, use of washer/drier. Coffee maker, juicer, toaster, microwave, iron, ironing board, baking dishes, pots, pans, alarm clocks, I-phone charger, telephone, books, CDs, DVDs.

Turn-key ready - this is not the kind of self-catering place where you immediately have to go to the store to buy paper towels, toilet tissue, dish-soap, etc. - all these basics are already waiting for you.

Surroundings : An ideal spot to see all the sights of San Francisco. Union Street (1 minutes' walk) Polk Street (3 minutes' walk), Fillmore Street (5 minutes' walk) and Chestnut Street (7 minutes' walk) are all filled with restaurants of very type from high-end to inexpensive and shops and boutiques of every type. The Marina Green and magnificent beaches/views of Crissy Field are about 8 minutes' drive away or half an hour's walk. WALK SCORE is 97!

By car or taxi Downtown/Union Square/SF Opera/Symphony are about 8 minutes, by direct bus 12- 15 minutes. Fisherman's Wharf is also about 8 minutes' by car/taxi. Buses and taxis are one minute's walk away. Very easy access (5 minutes' drive) to the Golden Gate Bridge for exploring Marin, Napa, the Redwoods and beyond.

Child-friendly amenities: This is a perfect spot for children. It is safe and secure with no-one above or below you. We are also on FLAT street (something of a rarity in San Francisco - try pushing a stroller up some of those hills after a day of sight-seeing!). We have a secure spot for your stroller, etc. You also have a full, fully-equipped kitchen so you can prepare your children's favorite foods or heat a bottle any time you wish.

Patio and garden completely secure so baby or children can be safely out in the fresh air.

Books, DVDs and toys, depending on age. Graco crib available and even babysitting a possibility with notice.

Free use of washer and drier (we even supply laundry detergent and softener!) makes life so much easier when traveling with children.
