I own the building, it has two apartments and a retail store. the other apartment is occupied by a retired school teacher and his wife, they both take care of my apartment for me, so just knock on their door if you should need anything during your stay.
If you are here on business, there is an Express bus to downtown right outside my front door. If you are visiting as a tourist and wish to feel the real San Francisco, then my apartment is the logical place, do not get ripped off in the high priced tourist restaurants, eat where the locals eat, there are many Ethnic restaurants within a few blocks, have a beer at some of the best neighborhood bars in the city. If you really want to be a tourist, take a walk to the Cliff House for dinner.
We now offer a great new service, especially for our international guests, If you wish to purchase items on-line (on-line is tax free, saves you 9%) we will sign and accept your deliveries and hold them for you until you arrive.
The neighborhood: Richmond/SeaCliff
The Richmond/Seacliff neighborhood has world-class recreation, You are within walking distance of 3 fantastic beaches, Ocean beach, China beach or Baker beach.
Golden Gate Park is only 5 blocks from the apartment. You also have a municipal golf course, Lincoln Park Golf, it is a short 6 blocks from the apartment.
Sea Cliff is dominated by Spanish architecture homes perched on the cliffs east of Golden Gate Bridge. Certainly one of the most desirable and picturesque residential areas in the U.S. Success exudes itself from any of houses, stars and theatrical types such as Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, and Carol Hayes of Hayes Productions all have homes here. The Presidio Trust sits to its east with remains of the Land's End Park and the famous Sutro Baths of 1896 to the west. The California Palace of the Legion of Honor museum built in 1924 ( inspired by the Palais de la Legion in Paris), home of Rodin's "The Thinker", and the public golf course of Lincoln Park all share the Sea Cliff address!"
Lincoln Park: Most people know Lincoln Park for two things: The Palace of the Legion of Honor and the golf course. Fewer know about the park's easy access to Land's End and a portion of the Coastal Trail that runs about six miles along the bluff above the sea, from Baker Beach to Ocean Beach. Walkers along this path will be treated with incredible views.
Golden Gate Park:
The California Academy of Sciences Its fantastic, you have to go.
You simply must rent a boat in Stow Lake or explore the park by bike. Stow Lake Bike & Boat Rentals, 50 Stow Lake Dr.
M.H. de Young Museum.
You have all this right outside your front door and are only 15 minutes to downtown Union Square.
Muni Bus system:
If you intend to ride the cable cars, then it is cheaper to buy a bus pass, the fare on the 38 bus downtown is $2.00 and the cable cars are $6 so its better value to get a bus pass. The passes are for consecutive days.
Passports may be purchased on the Muni website or at the Airport, SFO Information Booth (Baggage Claim area)
For more information on Muni Passports, call Muni's website.
1-day Passport $14
3-day Passport $22
7-day Passport $28
The cheapest way to get to the apartment from SFO is a door to door Super Shuttle, it costs $18 per person one way, if there are 3 or more people then a Taxi is cheaper, about $40. You do not really need a rental car, except if you wish to see the Wine Country, I would suggest that you rent a car the last 2 days of your vacation, there is a Hertz location a few blocks away, pick the car up at the local Hertz and drop it back to the Airport, that way you save on a shuttle to the airport.
ZIPCARS: There is a Zip Car location one block from the apartment, they rent cars by the hour and by the day, please visit the ZIPCAR website for more information.
***EXTRA, EXTRA, EXTRA, I now have a second location, A one bedroom apartment in Twin Peaks, with parking and laundry, sleeps up to 5.

<p><span>The building is described as "Wonderfully unique" - just two words that only touch on the elegance and wonder that this building invokes. Designed by the world-renown architect James Francis Dunn in 1890, the building itself is a main focal point of both tourists and residents alike. Only 1 block from Alamo Square Park and the famous "Painted Ladies" housing row, this apartment is in the heart of downtown San Francisco.</span></p>
<p><span>It has been said of this building that it is "one of three of the most significant architectural dwellings in San Francisco". "If San Francisco is the Rome of the colorist Movement, Alamo Square is the Vatican. The Square is the heart of the greatest collection of Painted Ladies and one of the most important collections of Victorian buildings in the world. Although it doesn't have a Saint Peter's, it does have an Archbishop Mansion." This building is located a block away from the "Belle" facing Alamo Square park and just up 1/2 a block are the famous "Seven Sisters" seen in every collection of photos depicting San Francisco. 1347-45 McAllister Street was designed by James Francis Dunn, started in early 1898 and completed at the end of 1900.</span></p>
<p><span>The building is a feature on the Double Decker bus tourists route, as well as walking tours of S.F., and is to be found in coffee table books on San Francisco architecture, magazines, and newspaper articles. The "Belle" survived the great 1906 quake as it is built on bed rock. Look up James Francis Dunn for more photos and other unique buildings he erected in San Francisco during his career.</span></p>
<p><span>Neighborhood: ALAMO SQUARE Victorian splendor characterized by the iconic Queen Anne 'Painted Ladies', behind which the central downtown skyline protrudes.
