The San Francisco Duck’s Nest is a huge, sunny, 2 bedroom, Edwardian flat. With walnut wainscoting, inlaid oak hardwood floors, fireplace, and polished brass fixtures throughout, it combines classic San Francisco with all modern conveniences. “If you are going to San Francisco”, and want to stay in a home that truly makes you feel warm and welcomed the minute you enter, with a garage and complete laundry room, and/or enjoy running, cycling, or walking in Golden Gate Park, this is the location!

Most folks visiting San Francisco often spend at least a day visiting Golden Gate Park, the de Young Museum, Academy of Sciences, Japanese Tea Gardens, or strolling through the world famous Conservatory of Flowers. There is something nice about getting up, having a cup of coffee at home (or at the coffee shop around the corner), and just walking to the end of the block to enjoy these activities.

With The Duck’s Nest as your home in San Francisco, you will have a new 46' High Definition television with home theatre surround sound system, complete with DirecTV/HBO/DVR and a video library of 25+movies filmed in SF, computer/printer/Wi-Fi, new granite counter tops in the kitchen , all new stainless steel appliances (refrigerator, chef range, dishwasher), a laundry room with new frontloading washer and dryer, new 23' Hi-Def television in master bedroom (DirecTV/HBO), and a secure garage with extra storage space for large items (golf clubs, bicycles, kayaks, etc.)

The wonderful, central, location of The Duck’s Nest will help make your visit to San Francisco so easy and convenient, you’ll want to leave the car in the garage. A new, upscale, grocery store with full deli is one block away, go one block in another direction and there’s a children’s playground. Restaurants of almost every ethnicity and type (from high end French cuisine to classic American diner) and pubs galore (some with live entertainment) are a 10-15 minute walk from your front door. Four major bus-lines (1 to 3 blocks away) take you to all other major sightseeing attractions in San Francisco and a 15-20 minute walk will get you to the University of San Francisco campus, the Haight Ashbury district, or the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center.

And lastly, you’ll find all the “small but important” things within The Duck’s Nest to make your stay enjoyable, fun, and special. A master bedroom, quiet, and romantically secluded in the back and away from the living and dining room, complete with superior linens and regular/memory foam/orthopedic/Euro pillows. A bathroom with 8 sets of elegant bath linens and plush terry cloth robes. A kitchen with small appliances, cooking utensils, a ceiling mounted pots/pan rack, and a stainless steel preparation table with stools underneath so you don’t have to stand when cooking gourmet meals. A laundry room to do your wash while you sleep, cook, or go out for the day or evening. A living room where you’ll choose between kicking back in a cozy recliner, stretching out on a comfy couch with bunches of pillows, curling up in a huge overstuffed chair, or checking out the French pane bay window seat (somehow folks always seem to like doing this!)

So choose from among The Duck’s Nest sightseeing guide books, family board games, or DVD’s from our collection of popular San Francisco movies, perhaps something like Escape from Alcatraz or The Rock if you are planning on visiting Alcatraz tomorrow. Toss a self-lighting Dura-Flame log into the fireplace, curl up on the couch and enjoy.

You’re home in San Francisco.
