Richmond District Studio Rental Photos and Description

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 15 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 9-5

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 730am.

I have certainly enjoyed my stay at "the cottage"

Clean, Comfortable, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night and forgot the instructions to the lock box. We had to ask the owner to help us into the apartment. Luis was nice and very understanding; he showed us around the apartment which was beautiful and very clean. His kindness was greatly appreciated. The apartment is much bigger than what the pictures display. The neighborhood was safe and quiet which made it great for evening walks and to nearby restaurants. We always found a place to park each night within a block of the apartment, so this was no issue. We communicated by text during our stay and always received a quick response. We definitely stay here again!

We highly recommend this rental!

Thank you, Liz & Luis

Great little apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience. The apartment was clean, good location, and had all the stuff provided that you would find in a hotel plus some. The only thing I would complain about is that it got a little noisy when the owners that live above started walking around. It was just like apartment living. So if you're an early riser, shouldn't be a problem! But if you like to sleep in, you might get woken up by some unintentional stomping. Otherwise, lovely stay!!

Great cottage

  • 4 of 5

The place is very nice and clean. Walking distance to plenty of places to eat. Check in and check out were very simple. Liz was very easy to get in touch with whenever I had questions about checking in. The place has everything you need. The only problems we noticed is there is poor cell service (this was disclosed prior to stay). This would not have been a problem if the wifi wasn't so spotty. There was also quite a bit of noice coming from upstairs early in the morning. None of these things were deal breakers, just a bit annoying. If you are looking for a nice place to stay for a good price, book this location.

Beautiful garden view apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this apartment. It was clean and the perfect size for my husband and I. We felt safe walking home after having late dinners every night. Public transit to anywhere in the city was one block away. Clement St. was two blocks away and had a lot of very good restraunts to choose from for any meal or snack throughout the day. Big grocery store two blocks away was another bonus. It was nice to be able to make breakfast at the apartment before we started our long day out. We walked to Golden Gate Park and Land's End Trail and did some hiking but public transit is also available. If you wish to venture out of San Francisco and need to rent a car, Enterprise car rental company was three blocks away. It was easy to communicate with Liz, she responded to my texts quickly. We definitely will stay here again on our next trip.

Clean, conveninet, good location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night and followed the instructions on the app to access the apartment. The apartment is great for a couple. The location is convenient to a lot of attractions and very quiet. We did have a car with us. The owners do not have a parking spot for the rental and you take your chance with getting street parking. We were lucky and always found a place to park within a block of the apartment. We did not see the owners as we were keeping late hours. We communicated by email during our stay and always received a quick response. This rental is a great alternative to a hotel room and you get much more for your money. We recommend this rental.
