About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

What a piece of heaven on earth! Crack the windows and go to sleep to the sound of the waves at night.
Walk to the beach in 2 minutes. Go for a surf.
Catch a game of golf.
Go running, biking, or walking on the Great Highway nature trail.
Hop a bus or muni (street car) and take off for a day of city tours.
Rent a horse and go galloping on the beach. Take the kids to watch the paragliders, all within a 10 minute drive.
Nice private garden with gas grill & picnic table, roses and citrus trees, and patio heater for those cool nights under the stars. Completely fenced in, should you need to corral the kids or doggies.
Walk to Java Beach, for a morning cup of coffee, or the Bashful Bull for the best pancakes around.
So much to see and do in this corner of San Francisco, which gives you access to the awe (and ahhh...) of nature and the buzz of the City by the Bay, not to mention a quick getaway to wine country (less than an hour's drive, ask me for recommendations!).

The house is a beautiful example of 40's architecture with two bedrooms and a full bath with tub/shower. We've got you stocked up with the beach chairs, blankets, and coolers. We even have a mountain bike for your use (with bike lock) to zoom up and down the Great Highway nature trail.

For the “automobile optional” crowd, we’ve prepared an extensive collection of what to do on foot, by metro or bus. The heat of the city is at your disposal while coming home to the cool ocean breeze and the sound of the ocean, which will make you fall into one of your deepest sleeps. 4 blocks to the Muni, L-Taraval gets you right downtown. 1-2 blocks to several bus connections.

When I'm in town, I live in the 'pied-a-terre' in the lower level, so you may see me coming and going (but staying out of your hair!). Hit me up for any sort of advice from where to get a pizza, to what vineyards up in Napa to check out.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I've lived a good bit of my time outside of the USA, and LOVE to travel. The best way to see another country is through the eyes of a native, not a just a website! I love meeting new people and always seek to stay with friends or family so I get that 'insider' perspective. My background is in foreign languages, and software. I travel a lot in my career, and have lived in Brazil, Mexico, Belgium, and Germany (in addition to the USA of course) I come from a big family, largely of Irish and German background. I love San Francisco for its proximity to so much nature, while offering so much culture. I love my beach house and am constantly upgrading this or that. On the rare occasion that I'm in town when guests are visiting, I live in the 'pied-a-terre' on the lower level. So if you see me coming and going be sure to hit me up for advice on what's happening in the city or where to take the kids to watch the paragliders.

Why the Owner Chose Sunset District, San Francisco, CA, USA:
I chose San Francisco for its diversity and beauty. I love the international crowd it attracts as well as the young Americans called out to the great West. I chose this home in the Sunset district for its proximity to the ocean, safe and quiet neighborhood (really safe! 1 neighbor is a fireman, the other a policeman!), I love the beach, the walking trails, the biking trails and so many close by attractions. The hustle and bustle of the rest of the city is either a quick car ride away, or easy by public transport. It's close to the highway system (101 N, or 280). The SFO airport is a 20 minute drive. I also chose it because it's on the opposite side of town from Fisherman's Wharf. You can have it when you want it, and then you can set your sights on something other than cotton candy and cheap souvenirs (sorry...!).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Its such a short walk to the beach, there is no excuse for not going every day. Organic market --on foot. Great pizza, Thai, Mexican --on foot. Surfer bar --on foot. Surfer coffee shop with free internet --on foot. I live in the lower unit, so I'm usually available to hit up for questions on what to do and what to see. The neighbors are super friendly too, and range from surfers to silicon valley commuters with kids. (fast escape to the 280-S). My favorite activity is my walk on the beach down to the Cliff House and back, or a bike ride to Golden Gate Park where absolutely everything from Buffalos to Museums, Japanese Tea Garden to Soccer fields abound. Go across the Golden Gate Bridge and head to Point Bonita Light House, Hike Mount Tamalpais, visit Muir Woods, or just stay home and light a fire!
