House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This charming, fully equipped, hidden gem cottage is located in one of the most exclusive and beautiful neighborhoods in the world! Everything is within walking distance. The boutiques, cafes, restaurants and services of Union Street are just one block away and and the trendy restaurants on Fillmore, Polk and Chestnut Street are each just a short stroll away! We are on a flat street, a rare find in this city of hills. One convenience store 50 yards away, another within 200 yards. Small park across the street and lovely newly renovated public library in heritage building just half a block away. A couple of minutes climb on an adjacent street and you will see below you a 180 degree jaw-dropping view of The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Bay or you can walk down to the Marina and Crissy Field to breathe in the magnificence of the Bay right at your feet.
The cottage is fully DETACHED, rose-covered, surrounded by gardens and was completely renovated by us a few years ago to provide luxury accommodation. It is inviting, light and airy and has its own private patio for dining/sunning.
You will find every comfort here, from quality linens and robes to generous fruit bowl, fresh flowers, tea/coffee/milk/juice/cereal/eggs/cookies, etc. and lovely toiletries on arrival. Two lovely, peaceful, elegant bedrooms (one with California King bed, the other with Queen Size Bed) perfect to accommodate 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, tumbled- tiled bathroom with deep soaking tub, small private patio with table, chairs and sun lounger, central heating, DSL wireless, Cable TV, DVD player, CD player, dishwasher, use of washer/drier. Coffee maker, juicer, toaster, microwave, iron, ironing board, baking dishes, pots, pans, alarm clocks, telephone, books, CDs, DVDs.
Turn-key ready for you - 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. - you will find the cottage already stocked with these items. You receive so much more here than any other vacation rental we have ever come across. Unlike many other SF rentals, we do NOT add on a cleaning charge.
Superb, tranquil and secure garden setting with private patio. Safe, secure, no-one above or below you, flat street (something of a rarity in San Francisco), secure spot for strollers, bikes, etc.
Graco crib available and even babysitting a possibility with notice.
Everyone who has stayed here has loved it and our guests constantly tell us: "We wish we had discovered this spot years ago!".

The California region
Pacific Heights is a beautiful, safe, residential area of San Francisco and we are also just one block from vibrant Union Street, with all its shops, boutiques, restaurants, taxis etc. and a few minutes' walk from Chestnut Street and Polk Streets, each with their own restaurants and retail shops. Taxis drive up and down Union Street and there are bus stops just one and then two blocks away for different routes across the City.
No other areas of the City will serve you as well as this location and many will put you far removed from the sights, transport and local amenities. Here you walk out of your front door and you are in the midst of the real San Francisco!
