Overview

About the property

Located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco. This large studio has every feature both SF natives and visitors yearn for. The views, accessibility to public transportation, historical sites, and adventure make this rental one of a kind. The unit is a 3rd floor walk-up or stair-lift (view photos), outfitted with a 55” TV, DVD, BOSE speakers, queen size bed, a double sofa bed, and walk-in closet. The large eat-in kitchen has plenty of room to whip up a meal using fresh, local ingredients from the local farmer’s market or grocer.

BUILDING

Located across from Moscone Park and just a few steps from the bus stops. It is a 6-unit Marina-style building. Quiet neighbors and equipped with a surveillance camera for added protection.

VIEWS & ROOF DECK

Both kitchen and bedroom windows have large bay windows overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and Moscone Park. Take this in with coffee from an adorable kitchen table or from the roof deck, easily accessible from the unit. You will enjoy a 360 degree view of the best of San Francisco – the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge, the magnificent Palace of Fine Arts dome, and Moscone Park.

SPORTS, FITNESS, ADVENTURE

Across the street from the studio you will have access to public sports facilities: baseball diamonds, tennis courts, basketball courts, 2 children’s playgrounds, and a golf driving range. It is also a few blocks away from the beach, running trails, and picnic spots.

Guests often enjoy biking across the Golden Gate bridge, having lunch in Sausalito (a picturesque town on the other side of the bridge), and taking the bike-friendly ferry from Fisherman’s wharf or the Ferry Building. This bike ride is fun, safe, and unforgettable.

SHOPPING & DINING

Within the neighborhood, you will find a variety of restaurants and shops on Chestnut Street and Union Street. You'll be amidst boutiques, bars, cafes, and a movie theater. A wonderful feature of the marina district is that foodies and families will have no trouble finding a quick bite, a leisurely brunch, fun and inventive dinners, or a nightcap.

STEPS AWAY FROM THE REST OF SF

Just steps away from Bus line 30 and 28 takes you to many SF hot spots, including, North Beach, Chinatown, Little Italy, Union Square, Golden Gate Bridge & Golden Gate Park. Walking distance from this rental, is Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, and Pier 39, and less than a mile away is the Palace of Fine Arts, Crissy Fields and the Presidio, home to Lucas Films, the new Disney Museum, and Off The Grid picnics.

About Brenda Herrera

This property is owned by a SF bay area family. The primary manager is Brenda who has worked in real estate for over 30 years. She is originally from the Philippines and fell in love with San Francisco after she moved to California in the 70's. She has managed many properties but this SF home is her pride and joy. She has kept this unit for only friends and family to enjoy until 2014.

Brenda Herrera purchased this studio in 2001

Why Brenda Herrera chose Marina District

My family and friends love to visit and relax here whenever we can. When we're not there, we like to share it with visitors to the SF Bay Area. We keep the place clean and well-equipped. My family loves to travel and we strive to incorporate all the things we enjoy in the vacation rentals we visit around the world. SF is famous for it's misty fog and mild weather. Our home is in an area that usually gets sunshine and a gentle ocean breeze.

What makes this studio unique

Besides the beautiful view, rooftop deck, parking space, and awesome location - We like that it faces a safe, family friendly park. Not having buildings across the street makes the studio feel bigger and the city more inviting. On the third floor, you enjoy privacy but you never feel alone because there's always people walking or playing in the park.

The best SF place and the best hostess

  • 5 of 5

Brenda is a terrific hostess, as she knew we were not fluent in english, she was waiting for us to arrive, and also gave us some phones to call where the call receiver was fluente in spanish and able to help us.

The unit is really perfect in every detail, a parking spot is a bonus, but also the proximity to the pier, and good transportation.

Brenda emails every information, and she is always willing to be helpfull.

We were referred from a friend, and we will be willing to stay again at Brenda´s every time we come back to SF.

We just loved this property! Charming and very comfortable. Brenda has it equipped with everything you could possibly want. Perfect location.......a short walk to the water and Marina Green. Great choices of restaurants on Chestnut St. Loved the view from the rooftop deck. On site parking was a huge plus for us. We will definitely stay here again.

Comfort, convenience and location with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect. We love the Marina District because it's so close to everything. It's a beautiful walk to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Presidio or the Embarcadero to the Ferry Building. A Safeway is a short walk away and Chestnut Street has some great shops and restaurants. The rooftop deck offers spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay. We had breakfast up there in the morning and had wine in the evenings for the sunsets. Brenda was a phone call away if we needed anything. We would give this rental an A+!!

Very clean and well-appointed in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location in San Fran, very close to the water and beautiful parks and also several great neighborhoods for dining, entertainment, and shopping. The unit itself was extremely clean and had everything that you could possibly need. Brenda was a very responsive host and it's clear that she puts a lot of effort into making sure the apartment is well-organized and has whatever a guest might require during their stay.

The Marina District is a young, upscale neighborhood packed with stores, restaurants, and outdoor attractions.

Of course, this neighborhood, bearing the name Marina District, is most known for its beautiful waterfront. It boasts views of the Golden Gate, large grassy fields, boat docks, and a breezy pedestrian/bike route which is one of the prime jogging paths of the entire Bay Area. This area is often featured in films and reality TV shows. Tourists flock here to cross the Golden Gate or go to the small beach area (most people find it too cold to actually sunbathe, but it is great for flying kites).

The neighborhood is most famous for the Palace of Fine Arts. The Palace is the only building left standing in its original location within the 1915 Exposition fairgrounds. The grounds around the Palace are a popular year-round attraction for tourists and locals, and are a favorite location for weddings and wedding party photographs for couples.

The singles scene is hopping on Friday and Saturday nights. Union St. is arguably the best street in the city to window-shop the hours away on a sunny Saturday afternoon, and, Chestnut St. has an incredible variety of high-quality restaurants catering to every palate including: Atelier Crenn, Roam Artisan Burgers, Isa, Zushi Puzzle, Bistro Aix, and A16.
