Perfect Quiet Getaway! Marina/Cow Hollow, Onsite Parking, Beautiful Garden!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 26, 2014
Apartment, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Experience San Francisco like a true native. This street level unit with its own private entrance has been in the same family home for three generations. We not only offer a perfect location but since we live on the second floor, we are happy to help our guests plan their trip and enjoy the city to its maximum.

This fully remodeled unit is litterally steps away from legendary Union Street with its boutiques, resaurants, cafes, bakeries and wine bars. It is a quick stroll to Chestnut Street, Polk Street and the Marina Greens... and very close to Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the ferry to Alcatraz.

Our unit is perfect for a stay during America's Cup and Louis Vuitton's Cup. Our very quiet unit is about 10 min walking distance to the water and you can easily get to all the America's and Louis Vuitton's Cups attractions without a car or public transportation. You will enjoy the amazing and frenetic ambiance of the city and its races during the day but come back home to a well hidden and quiet getaway when the sun comes down...

Our location is perfect for those travelling to San Francisco without a car... major bus lines are less than a block away from our unit. We are also walking distance from major grocery and natuaral food stores. A convenient store is located right at the corner. And you can be a tourist by day and a native by night, barbecuing in our yard!

For those with a car, you are a short ride from Ocean Beach, Mont Tamalpais, Muirs Woods and Stinson Beach... You can even plan a day trip to Napa Valley and Sonoma.

PARKING AVAILABLE ONSITE!!!

Parking is available in the street, in front of our garage door ($20/night). Your car would be blocking ours in the garage but since the sidewalk is very large, we can maneuver around the car parked in the street to get out of the garage. And if for some reason you wanted to park inside our garage because you were not planning to use your car a lot, we could definitely organize accordingly. It requires very little communication and it is definitely worth the pain of public garages...

Other options for parking:

-Public parking garage 3 blocks away: $25/night, closed from 12am to 8am. No “in and out” privileges.

-Street parking in the neighborhood: can be very challenging but possible (2 hrs max in the same spot from 8am to 6pm, can have to park several blocks away)

SLEEPING CAPACITY

Sleeps 4 people but ideal for 2: one upscale king size bed and one queen size convertible bed

-extra charge for over 2 guests, adults or children over 2 years old

-for your comfort, convertible bed intended for 1 adult or 2 young children under 50lbs

-if needed, extra floor mattress available

KID-FRIENDLY: the kids have their own convertible bed next to their parents.

BABY FRIENDLY: there is plenty of space to put a playpen next to the bed for a baby. Upon request and free of charge, we can provide a playpen (pack and go style, changing station included) along with a 'Bumbo Seat' with a tray for baby to eat in.

We speak English, French and Spanish!!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was wonderful. The apartment was ideal and so accommodating with everything you could need. The back garden area was so peaceful and nice to share a glass of wine and talk about the great day. The location could not have been better with fabulous restaurants and shopping around the corner on Union Street just steps away. We will be back and so will other friends and family. A real FIND

The most amazing, warming in the midst of eevrythjbg place that we could ever get!!!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my hubby came visiting San Fran for the first time for our honeymoon. It was the most amazing experience ever. This place had offered so much and more than ever we had ever thought and asked for. This place was in the middle of it all. Places to be and places to see just steps from the door. A short 3-5 min ride on can or Uber. We met Julie briefly as we can only imagine her busy schedule especially with a newborn. She was pleasant, sweet, friendly and most helpful ever. This was the most amazing place ever. When we do come back, I'm not gonna be looking for another place, I know where I'm gonna go right away! Is her place will be our #1 choice. Julie was super nice, we left our little portable alarm clock that we brought with us and love so much and she had shipped that back to us. This is the first class a person can experience. It's hard to find this type of service now days. Not staying in hotel when we come back, were coming back here! Thank you so much Julie for your most amazing place ever. Your place is the best! And so are you!!!
Thank you!!!

Shhh this is a gold mine

  • 5 of 5
This apt was excellent! Property, location, amenities and parking were all terrific. Although I never saw the owners they could not have been more accommodating, we wanted for nothing. I can not say enough good things about this place but please don't tell anyone because I don't want it to be booked when I am back in San Fran. i will definitely rent this apt again.

Quiet, clean and relaxing...all details documented perfectly

  • 5 of 5
We could not believe how quiet our stay was! We didn't hear horns, cars, etc. And, with Union Street within a few steps, this is a perfect place to land after a day in San Fran. It truly felt like home. Our only regret is that we didn't spend more time in the neighborhood shopping and eating at the shops and restaurants. Julie did an excellent job of documenting everything. Everything was just as explained. We would definitely stay here again.
