vacation rental description

Located just 5 or so minutes' walk to the Bay and to magnificent views of GG Bridge and Alcatraz, our cottage offers a real San Francisco experience (with luxury!). It nestles behind one of San Francisco's lovely 'painted lady' Victorians. Fully DETACHED, rose-covered, it is surrounded by gardens and was completely renovated by us a few years ago. It is inviting, light and airy and has its own private patio. It is safe and secluded yet just a stone's throw from vibrant, chic, Union Street where San Franciscans come to dine and shop. The best and most desirable neighborhood of San Francisco!

No other lister will treat you as well as we do! When you arrive, you will find the fridge stocked with juice, milk, eggs, cream, yoghurt, sodas and there will be cereal and muffins, tea and coffee, other staples and excellent toiletries, all for you. There will be a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers awaiting you, great linens, robes and many other extras.

Restaurants, cafes and boutiques, banks, beauty salons, buses and taxis one block away. One convenience store 100 yards away, another within 200 yards. Small park across the street and a library in a lovely heritage building 50 yards away.

Everyone who has stayed here has loved it and our guests constantly tell us: 'We wish we had discovered this spot years ago!'

Two lovely bedrooms (one with California King bed, the other with Queen Size Bed and doors onto patio). Perfect for 2 couples, a family with children or a couple looking for a romantic retreat.

Furnished to a high standard. Fully equipped kitchen with dining table, living room with wood burning stove (there is also central heating), tumbled- tiled bathroom with deep soaking tub, small private patio with table, chairs and sun lounger, central heating, DSL wireless, large flat screen TV with Cable, DVD player, CD player, dishwasher, use of washer/drier. Coffee maker, juicer, toaster, microwave, iron, ironing board, baking dishes, pots, pans, alarm clocks, I-phone charger, telephone, books, CDs, DVDs.

Turn-key ready - this is not the kind of self-catering place where you immediately have to go to the store to buy paper towels, toilet tissue, dish-soap, etc. - all these basics are already waiting for you.

Surroundings : An ideal spot to see all the sights of San Francisco. Union Street (1 minutes' walk) Polk Street (3 minutes' walk), Fillmore Street (5 minutes' walk) and Chestnut Street (7 minutes' walk) are all filled with restaurants of very type from high-end to inexpensive and shops and boutiques of every type. The Marina Green and magnificent beaches/views of Crissy Field are about 8 minutes' drive away or half an hour's walk. WALK SCORE is 97!

By car or taxi Downtown/Union Square/SF Opera/Symphony are about 8 minutes, by direct bus 12- 15 minutes. Fisherman's Wharf is also about 8 minutes' by car/taxi. Buses and taxis are one minute's walk away. Very easy access (5 minutes' drive) to the Golden Gate Bridge for exploring Marin, Napa, the Redwoods and beyond.

Child-friendly amenities: This is a perfect spot for children. It is safe and secure with no-one above or below you. We are also on FLAT street (something of a rarity in San Francisco - try pushing a stroller up some of those hills after a day of sight-seeing!). We have a secure spot for your stroller, etc. You also have a full, fully-equipped kitchen so you can prepare your children's favorite foods or heat a bottle any time you wish.

Patio and garden completely secure so baby or children can be safely out in the fresh air.

Books, DVDs and toys, depending on age. Graco crib available and even babysitting a possibility with notice.

Free use of washer and drier (we even supply laundry detergent and softener!) makes life so much easier when traveling with children.

traveler reviews for this san francisco cottage rental

Beautiful, Private, Wonderful Inside and Out

Review submitted: June 28, 2014   Date of arrival: June 15, 2014

Ambrosial! In both my husband's opinion and mine, this was the best place we have vacation rented before…and we have rented often in San Francisco and many other places.

This cottage was prettier than pictured, the linens were heavenly and so sweet ( hand embroidered pillow cases and high quality sheets), the kitchen wonderfully equipped and the gardens that surrounded it all provided so much pleasure. Everywhere we looked we saw green or flowers. We loved the private deck on the back. In all corners of this property, the care that the owners put into it is fully evident.

Our hosts have the talent for providing the most caring hosting, being available for any and all questions, and yet provided us with the utmost respect for our privacy. All the attention they have put into the decor and equipping the cottage make for a delightful stay. The setting is quiet as can be and the location ( both the street that the cottage is on and the larger neighborhood in which is is located) is perfect. We had all our dinners out in restaurants, delicious, that were a block or two away. We loved the proximity to the waterfront at the marina area and also loved the little Blue Fog Market/Deli on the corner near the cottage.

There was a huge bowl of fresh fruit waiting in the kitchen upon our arrival and even though we were there for 9 days, we never needed to think of buying more food for breakfasts….there were eggs in the fridge, cereal and milk, cream for coffee, many choices of tea and also coffee waiting to be enjoyed. There were chocolates in the cut glass bowl in the living room, a bag of cookies in the kitchen and freshly arranged flowers in every room….gorgeous!

We felt pampered and so fortunate to have chosen this perfect spot. The night before we departed the cottage, my husband was busily looking at the rental calendar to see when we could return. It is a place like this that made Tony Bennett sing the song about leaving his heart in San Francisco.

This review is late but we are planning a return trip to San Francisco and I realized I forgot to do this sooner!! We had such an amazing time here, the location was perfect and Dale was so accommodating with any special requests (it was a surprise trip for a birthday and we had guests arriving as an additional surprise at a later time that she had to wait around for!). The basic grocery supplies were appreciated and saved us a trip to the store. We would love to stay here again for this next trip but it is unfortunately booked :( Perhaps next time!!
