If you are here on business, there is an Express bus to downtown right outside my front door. If you are visiting as a tourist and wish to experience the real San Francisco, then my apartment is the logical place, do not get ripped off in the high priced tourist restaurants, eat where the locals eat, there are many Ethnic restaurants within a few blocks, have a beer at some of the best neighborhood bars in the city. If you really want to be a tourist, take a walk to the Cliff House for dinner.
I own the building, it has 2 apartments and a retail store, the other apartment is occupied by a retired school teacher, Vladimir and his wife, they both take care of my apartment for me, so just knock on their door if you should need anything during your stay.
The neighborhood: Richmond/SeaCliff
The Richmond/Seacliff neighborhood has world-class recreation, You are within walking distance of 3 fantastic beaches, Ocean beach, China beach or Baker beach.
Golden Gate Park is only 5 blocks from the apartment. You also have a municipal golf course, Lincoln Park Golf , it is a short 6 blocks from the apartment.
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. 'Like the Outer Richmond itself, Geary calms down considerably after 25th Avenue as it meanders off into the fog and ultimately ends at the Pacific Ocean.'
Sea Cliff is dominated by Spanish architecture homes perched on the cliffs east of Golden Gate Bridge. Certainly one of the most desirable and picturesque residential areas in the U.S. Success exudes itself from any of houses, stars and theatrical types such as Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, and Carol Hayes of Hayes Productions all have homes here. The Presidio Trust sits to its east with remains of the Land's End Park and the famous Sutro Baths of 1896 to the west. The California Palace of the Legion of Honor museum built in 1924 ( inspired by the Palais de la Legion in Paris), home of Rodin's 'The Thinker', and the public golf course of Lincoln Park all share the Sea Cliff address!'
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.
You have all this right outside your front door and are only 15 minutes to downtown Union Square.
Muni Bus system:
If you intend to ride the cable cars, then it is cheaper to buy a bus pass, the fare on the 38 bus downtown is $2.25 and the cable cars are $6 so its better value to get a bus pass. The passes are for consecutive days.
Passports may be purchased on the Muni website or at the Airport, SFO Information Booth (Baggage Claim area)
For more information on Muni Passports, see Muni's website.
• 1-day Passport $17
• 3-day Passport $26
• 7-day Passport $35
The cheapest way to get to the apartment from SFO is a door to door Super Shuttle, it costs $19 per person one way, if there are 3 or more people then a Taxi is cheaper, about $45. You do not really need a rental car, except if you wish to see the Wine Country, I would suggest that you rent a car the last 2 days of your vacation, there is a Hertz location a few blocks away, pick the car up at the local Hertz and drop it back to the Airport, that way you save on a shuttle to the airport.
ZIPCARS: you can rent Zip cars by the hour or by the day,
There is a ZIPCAR location one block from the apt,
Please go to ZIPCAR Website for more information.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I used to own a travel agency for 15 years and like to think I know what tourists want in a vacation apartment.
Why the Owner Chose Richmond District, San Francisco, CA, USA:
I bought the building in 2000 and totally renovated the owners unit apartment, I lived in this apartment for 3 years, then bought another Apartment building in Twin Peaks, where I now live. I decided to rent this apartment to tourists and its been a huge success. Lots of guests have said it feels like your are staying in a friends apartment and not a sterile vacation place, I thinks its because I furnished and decorated it as my home, so when I moved out I left everything as is. I loved living here!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Live like a local in a very family friendly neighborhood, Everything is right outside the front door. Previous guests have commented on how great the neighborhood is. There are all types of cafes, bars and restaurants from a Michelin star (Aziza) to Mom & Pop places all within a few blocks. You really do not need a car, but if you need one for a few hours or a day, there is a ZIP car location just one block away.
