Great Place To Stay While in San Francisco
I was visiting San Francisco with an employee to attend a trade show at the Marriott Marquis and to do a bit of sight-seeing. Rather than rent 2 expensive rooms at the hotel and pay the exorbitant cost of parking, I found this wonderful home. The off-street parking was the draw at first, but after staying here, I was pleased for so many other reasons. As to location, the home is 15 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from the Moscone Center and the Marriott Marquis, and 15 minutes or so to the wharf. It was an hour’s drive to Napa. As to accommodation, the upper floor is where you enter from the street. Here you will find the living room, den with TV, modern kitchen, bedroom with queen sized bed and a bathroom with tub that is entered from the common space. The kitchen was modern and the living room and den were perfect for unwinding after a busy day. The view from the rear deck offered a great view of the bay in the distance. The lower floor offers a reading room, a bedroom suite with a queen sized bed and bathroom with shower, a bonus room that we used for ironing our clothes and the biggest walk in closet you would ever need. There is also access to the garage. While the garage is very small, it is also the space where the clothes washer and dryer are located. I would not plan on using this space to park a car. There is access to the backyard from both floors. From the main/upper floor there is the deck that offers a breathtaking view of the bay and the surrounding hills. From the deck, you can go down stairs to reach the yard, which is nicely landscaped and has nice seating area with 2 Adirondack chairs. The neighborhood is very hilly and offers a great opportunity to get some exercise. On our first morning we walked up the hill to Mount Davidson from which you are offered a view of the city in the distance. While the view is blocked by another mountain, it is worth the walk. Later the owner of the home told us about Twin Peaks which offered an even better view. We drove there on our way to the airport. It turns out that this was the mountain that blocked some of the view from Mount Davidson. Anyway, I would highly recommend renting this home on your next visit to SF.
