Description of the San Francisco vacation apartment rental
The Lake District neighborhood has world-class recreation. You are within easy reach of 3 marvelous beaches: Baker beach, Ocean beach, or China beach.
We are also located a short, scenic drive through the Presidio and over the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County, and just over an hour to the quaint town of Sonoma and all the wine country has to offer.
Muni Bus system:
If you intend to ride the cable cars, then it is cheaper to buy a bus pass. The fare on the 1 California bus downtown is $2.25 and the cable cars are $5, so it is better value to get a bus pass. The passes are for consecutive days.
1-day Passport $14
3-day Passport $21
7-day Passport $27
Passports may be purchased on the Muni site or at the Airport, SFO Information Booth (Baggage Claim area)
For more information on Muni Passports and the CityPASS visit the sfmta site.
One of the easiest budget ways to get to the flat from SFO is a door-to-door Super Shuttle: it costs $17 per person each way. Each additional person in your party will cost $10.
You do not really need a rental car, except if you wish to see the Wine Country or to explore Marin. There is an Enterprise rental car company on Geary between 6th and 7th.
Renting a zipcar by the hour or day is another option if you would like to explore outside of the city.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
The Presidio golf course is a short walk through the park from the flat. The nearby Richmond district is a vibrant neighborhood, full of interesting shops, with a plethora of restaurants. You can find Mexican, Russian, French and Italian restaurants with ease, not to mention abundant establishments serving food from every corner of Asia (including delightful and delicious Mandalay, the very first Burmese restaurant in SF, right around the corner on California St.)
Lincoln Park: Most people are familiar with Lincoln Park because of the Palace of the Legion of Honor and the golf course, but we think one of the best things about it is the direct access to Land's End and a portion of the Coastal Trail that runs about six miles along the bluffs above the sea, from Baker Beach to Ocean Beach. Walkers along this accessible path will be astonished by the fabulous views. Check out the Labyrinth while you're there!
Golden Gate Park: The newly redone M.H. De Young Museum is fabulous both for its special exhibits and its regular collections. Be sure to go up the viewing tower for breath-taking views over the city, Golden Gate Bridge and bay. The California Academy of Sciences is a must-see. Both museums have fabulous cafes (with outdoor seating as well). It’s great fun to rent a boat in Stow Lake (Stow Lake Bike & Boat Rent) or to explore the park by bike (they close most of the roads through the park to car traffic on weekends so that the park is wholly dedicated to pedestrians and bikers.

A Gem in San Francisco
April 21, 2013
There is a saying in California Real Estate circles, that the three questions to ask about a piece of property are 1) Location? 2) Location? 3) Location? granting this, 77 7th Ave. on a quiet elegant Street in San Francisco near the Presidio is perfection itself. The apartment is a little jewel; a pleasant bedroom, a well-stocked itchen and a wonderfully furnished living-room dining area with a pretty view, especially at sunset time. We spent several nights there and had a really fine time, taking busses (a three minute walk away) to the downtown museums and the Jackson Square designer area. A five minute walk brought us to Clement Street, famous in the city for its many Chinese markets restaurants and cafes. We highly recommend Don and Leila's apartment to any vacationer coming to this wonderful and exciting city. (p.s. there is even on-street parking on 7Ave., a real rarity in San Francisco.)

The BEST of San Francisco
April 11, 2013
This apartment in San Francisco offers absolutely the best of the city. If you want to feel like a native, this is the place! The apartment is attractive and spacious, with lots of light and all amenities, very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. The owners have thought of every possible comfort and convenience you might want during a visit. As travelers themselves, they have anticipated your needs in every small detail. There is a small garden, and best of all! you can walk out the back gate into the historic Presidio, as if it were your own vast private park. The Pacific Ocean and Bailey's Beach are an easy 30 minute walk through the park. The street is in a lovely and well established neighborhood, with gracious San Francisco period houses, near the markets, restaurants and shops on California and Clement Street. Downtown San Francisco is within walking distance, and if you want to ride, bus lines take you quickly to downtown, Golden Gate Park, all the San Francisco sights. I would always chose to stay here, rather than in the noisy downtown. Tranquility, parking, green space, shopping and dining, easy access to SF destinations, AND that special San Francisco charm.
Beautiful apartment in the heart of San Francisco
July 7, 2012
We loved our stay at this San Francisco studio apartment. The owners communicated with us from the very beginning and helped answer all of our questions before we booked. Once we booked they were very helpful getting the contract together and describing the process for us as this was our first vacation rental-by-owner. We couldn't be more pleased with their service. We took the Super Shuttle from the airport and they dropped us off right at the front door. I knew from looking at Google maps that Nob Hill was a great neighborhood. It seemed that all of the great restaurants and attractions were on this side of town and we were right! The room was clean and even roomier than I was expecting it to be. The sort of "Galley" style kitchen is roomy enough for cooking and although I planned on buying groceries, we couldn't resist eating all of the great SF food for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The bed was very comfortable and there is drawer space below it for extra clothes. There are a few closets to hang clothes and we used the long wooden table to lay out more (we overpacked!) As suburban dwellers we had to adjust to city living for the week. None of it was bad and we really enjoyed the experience. The California St. Cable Car line is right in front of this apartment which was really neat. There is a bar next door and we heard people talking but it didn't seem to be a late night/rowdy crowd at all. Like most buildings in SF, there is not a thermostat to regulate the temperature, so don't be afraid to open windows! This is a great bargain. The price is right, the service is perfect, and the location cannot be beat. The apartment is in a safe location and we were comfortable the entire time. It is close to everything and I highly recommend you stay here! Some tips: we rented our cars from Enterprise on Turk St. AWESOME car rental place. Drove down to Monterey and Carmel and spent a night there. Also drove over the GGB to Muir Woods- do this! Also went to Yosemite and spent a night there. Ate at Sears Fine Foods, Squat and Gobble, Kokkari, Fleur de Lys, Jardiniere, Nob Hill Grill (breakfast), and many more. Make your dinner reservations now! They book months in advance! Lots of great places on Chestnut St in the Marina District and Hayes St in Hayes Valley. Get the 7 day MUNI pass.
