Overview

About the property

Studio, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Beautifully remodeled garden in-law apartment. Separate entrance.

New bathroom, kitchen, appliances, flatscreen TV and hardwood floors. Large windows that overlook a shared garden with patio furniture.

Fully furnished in pottery barn style.

Located in prime San Francisco neighborhood. Across the street from the hiking trails of the Presidio and Mountain Lake Park. Easy bike or stroll to Golden Gate Park. Two blocks to the fabulous Asian restaurants on Clement street.

Extremely comfortable Queen Bed with luxurious linens.

Full Kitchen, Cable TV, WIFI, Ipod docking station. New heating system to keep you warm during the foggy SF nights.

The Lake District neighborhood has world-class recreation, You are close to 3 fantastic beaches, Ocean beach, China beach or Baker beach.

You also have the Presidio golf course right across the street. The Richmond retains a neighborhood feel along its main shopping streets.

You can find Mexican, Russian, French and Italian restaurants with ease, not to mention a plethora of establishments serving food from every corner of Asia.

Lincoln Park: Most people know Lincoln Park for two things: The Palace of the Legion of Honor and the golf course. Fewer know about the park's easy access to Land's End and a portion of the Coastal Trail that runs about six miles along the bluff above the sea, from Baker Beach to Ocean Beach. Walkers along this path will be treated with incredible views.

Golden Gate Park:

The California Academy of Sciences Its fantastic, you have to go.

You simply must rent a boat in Stow Lake or explore the park by bike. Stow Lake Bike & Boat Rentals, 50 Stow Lake Dr.

M.H. de Young Museum.

We are also located a short drive to Marin County and only an hour to the quaint town of Sonoma and all the wine country has to offer.

You have all this right outside your front door and are only 20 minutes to downtown Union Square.

Several Muni Bus lines a block away.

The cheapest way to get to the apartment from SFO is a door to door Super Shuttle or Uber.

A taxi from the airport costs roughly $60 with tip. You do not really need a rental car, except if you wish to see the Wine Country or explore Marin. There is an Enterprise rental car company on Geary between 6th and 7th

Renting a zipcar by the hour or day is another option if you would like to explore outside of the city. Please visit zipcars website for more information.

A few things we would like to make you aware of

1) The cell service is not great inside the unit. Some people need to go to the patio to get clear service.

2) There is two hour street parking M-F from 9-6

We rarely see anoyone from the traffic department in our neighborhood but it is a risk to leave your car all day long

There is all day parking when you cross Geary street 3 blocks away.

3) We live upstairs and have a baby boy that is starting to move around a lot and it can get bit noisy in the mornings after 7am

perfect place for a weekend getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Liz was a great host! She was quick to respond to any questions.

Their place was adorable, clean and in a quiet neighborhood. We loved staying there. We were looking for a quiet place to get away and explore the city. Their place offered just that. We hiked so many trails that were vertually out their front door. It’s centrally located, we either walked or took a short Lyft ride anywhere we needed to go.

I would welcome another opportunity to stay here.

Thanks again to Liz for offering up their home.

Liz and Luis were very helpful and available to answer any questions that we had. The apartment is exactly as presented..... very clean and very nice. The bed is quite comfortable. It is perfect for two people. The back yard garden is very nice and cozy. Walking to Baker Beach is about a mile away and a wonderful beach.
