Property Details

Updated: May 14, 2015
Studio, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Seven-Night-Minimum! Why should you climb to a roof to enjoy views? This penthouse unit is actually located on the roof itself, with unobstructed views surrounding the unit. You'll face the St. Francis Yacht Club and boats on San Francisco's bay. Enjoy the tranquility of a beautiful neighborhood, encompassing city living and excellent public transportation - no car required! Ideal for 1-2 adults, this spacious studio is almost 600 sq' ~ Imagine complete privacy, solitude, and coziness, surrounded by 360' of panoramic views: three sides from inside + one side from the spacious deck. Enjoy coffee and meals on the generous deck, while savoring SF's 'big sky!' ~ The apt was recently restored, with all conveniences of home, including a full kitchen, plus private washer/dryer inside the unit. Every retail convenience is located on the neighborhood's Chestnut Street. Within blocks, walk-jog-run to the Golden Gate Bridge, or relax at Crissy Field's bay and beach. ~ Located half-block from the Palace of Fine Arts, different directions will lead to the Presidio, Fort Mason, Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman's Wharf, and eventually to the Ferry Building's colorful outdoor market. ~ Rent a car for a day-trip, as easy/quick drives across neighboring Golden Gate Bridge will take you to popular bay inlets of Sausalito and Tiburon, or drive 50 minutes to California's beautiful Wine Country. This unit represents everything that is 'best' about San Francisco!

Perfect base for San Francisco!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a great find this apartment was! We spent 10 nights here as our base for exploring San Francisco and didn’t want for anything during our stay. The apartment is even better than it appears in the photos and was spotlessly clean throughout. We found the fold-out bed to be very comfortable and of equal quality to a normal bed. There were many guide books to peruse as well as a handy folder of menus from local restaurants. The views from every window and the roof deck are magic even when there was fog. We were a bit taken aback by the fog horns at first but it’s now a sound that instantly brings back fond memories of our stay in San Francisco. We quickly started to feel at home in the lovely Marina neighbourhood, finding many good restaurants within 10-15 minutes walking distance. We had a 7 day Muni passport and frequently used the 30 Stockton bus. This is a very handy bus route which enables easy access to Fisherman’s Wharf, Little Italy, Chinatown on Stockton Street and Union Square. To save our feet after a long day of walking, sometimes we even caught a bus back from dinner on Chestnut Street as there is a stop just half a block away from the apartment. The Marina area is relatively flat which is a plus when compared to the steep streets found in many other parts of San Francisco. Rayne was quick to respond at all times right from our initial booking inquiry and was most pleasant to deal with.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5
We had planned on staying in a hotel on our trip to San Francisco and had been online making the usual inquiries. These days this generates all sorts of spam relating to your destination, one of which was on vacation rentals. We hadn’t considered that option at all and started reviewing the offerings just out of curiosity. Our curiosity turned to excitement when we came to Rayne’s penthouse. We read the glowing reviews and immediately booked it for an open week in late May-early June. Well, we loved the place; it was very comfortable and convenient and it lived up to all the accolades in previous reviews. We won’t repeat those but mention an aspect that is important for us but so infrequently attained in vacation lodging in a city. In a hotel room especially, even one with something of a view, we usually feel removed, even cloistered, from the city we have come to visit and enjoy. As a consequence we tend to spend a minimum time there, and as a consequence of that, tend to have less relaxed and more driven vacations. The penthouse totally overcame this problem: you never leave the scene; it still surrounds you with great views in every direction. We never felt we had to rush out and stop wasting time sitting around a hotel room. We were there already. This made a huge difference in the pace of our activities and overall enjoyment of our week in San Francisco.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Everything about our stay was perfect! Couldn't get over the views! The location is spectacular and the apartment was amazing. Just a short walk to Chestnut St with great dining and shopping. Rayne's hospitality was the best! Looking forward to going again in the future.

Sky-High Views

  • 5 of 5
I spent 5 weeks in SF and stayed in 3 different places, and this one was by far my favorite one!
Beautiful neighborhood, extremely conformable and clean flat and.. the view! Oh my God THE VIEW!
On Sunday I invited a few local friends for a brunch on the deck: they're all from SF and they all own amazing flat/houses. But they were all so impressed by the view that I realized how unique that was.
Not to mention the owner kindness and efficiency.
5 stars and thumb up!

Amazing Condo Rental

  • 5 of 5
For anyone looking for a nice cozy place to stay in San Francisco, this penthouse in the Marina is the place to stay. Firstly the views are amazing. You have a straight shot of the Golden Gate Bridge out of the front window. It is also a half block from the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts. The kitchen comes fully stocked and it is very easy to prepare meals just as if you were at your own home. The location is unbeatable. The Chrissy Field/Presidio/Marina Green area is a great place for a jog or walk along the bay and Chestnut Street has great restaurants and bars for nightlife. The Golden Gate Bridge is so close than you can be in Marin in about 5 minutes if you want to check out Sausalito or Muir Woods.

To sum everything up, the penthouse was extremely clean when we arrived and very spacious. We were able to prepare great meals in the kitchen, but also dined out on Chestnut street a number of times and had plentiful options out there. The location is also great for anyone who exercises as you can get a great morning run in along Chrissy Field. The views are unmatchable and the location is great for anyone looking to make day trips into Marina County.

I would highly recommend this penthouse for all ages! The neighborhood has so much to offer and you are conveniently located for day trips.

Everything we wanted: Views, Location, Cleanliness and Well-equipped Apartment

  • 5 of 5
After looking at many options in SF, we decided on this apartment for a 25th anniversary celebration in January due to the location and views. We were not disappointed in any way. We were impressed that this relatively small apartment had all the things we needed to relax while enjoying a week walking all over SF. The kitchen had everything to cook breakfasts and an occasional dinner, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the "living room" furniture was also a comfortable place to read or watch TV (the screen is small and is probably the only thing we could find any fault with). The posted photos give an accurate representation of the apartment.
We enjoyed the location for many reasons: close to the water, out of the touristy section of city, and still very close to great restaurants, coffee shops and shopping (Delarosa Italian Restaurant is a must and the Coffee Roastery is a great place for breakfast; both are on Chestnut Street).
The owner made the whole experience very smooth and arranged for an agent to be on the property to thoroughly explain everything when we got there. The owner also checked in a day or so after our arrival to ensure everything was ok.
We have stayed at many HomeAway/VRBO properties and this one is a stand-out.
