I found this place while researching Ocean beach... there is a two night minimum stay at 187.00 US ....4 of us stayed here as Joanne had a last minute cancellation. located on 42nd and Anza, a flat street, 4 blocks from the Beach and accross the park to the Cliff House. Totally auesome place for my two teens and sister. We shared the suite room overlooking the ocean...breathtaking view ..., nice windmill to watch, quiet area, clean, comfortable beds, victorian surroundings. Could not believe we had full use of the whole upstairs, a full kitchen with a large fridge, stove, microwave, tons of dishes and cookware, living room with fireplace, beautiful victorian dining area, reading material, tv and dvd player, cable, a bathroom and then a bathroom in our two room suite. Joanne was so friendly and she was very mindful of our needs. Her little grandaughter Olive is so cute, If you are allergic to cats just let Joanne know and she wont let it up. Safeway is just 4 blocks down and 2 blocks over on La Playa, buy groceries and have your own food after the lavish breakfast. Two blocks up hill on Geary you can catch the #38 all the way up, just call 311 which is the Muni public bus and they will help you get where you want. Golden Gate park was just a 4 block down hill walk to Fulton st ( beautiful park for walking just like a forest ) and then over to main Ocean Beach ( beautiful beach with surfers, clean sand, tons of room, tons of long beach for miles to walk, fun cold waves to jump in which was nice during the heat wave SF experienced, but tons of dogs running around but fun to watch them and they did not bother us for the most part) breathtaking sunset, just be careful when the tide is in or out too , there are riptides and you could be swept away so dont be fooled by the beauty there is danger too, there were shells at the sutra bath end of the beach and it is quiet and beautiful there so worth what it takes to get down there !!!!). Beach Chalet restaruant was priced better than Cliff house which we tried to eat at for three days and gave up due to crowds, even with a pager they give you. WAlk down to the old Sutra baths but beware you cant get to the beach and would have to either crawl precariously over the rocks or all the way back up. Also no where to get down to the most beautiful beach in SF from The Cliff house either, you need to walk down Hill to find an opening so from the Sutra baths it is a long walk to find an opening to the street. also we waited an hour to catch the number 38 bus on 48st after that long walk up from the Cliff house as did not realize Anza st is flat and could not bear the uphill climb on Geary street ( walking in SF is not for the faint of heart or anyone with medical issues, so we took cabs up those 90 degree angle streets, in the heat too) so was going to take the bus. A little scary at night waiting for the bus but Joanne reassured us it was safe. Dont eat at Louie's down from the Cliff house. it was reasonablly priced but the food so substandard. A raw meat chilie burger with I swear canned chilie ...just gross but the waitress graciouly took it off the bill, a warm rootbeer float ?? and our shrimp Louis salad was on a bed of iceberg lettuce with a half an egg , slice of tomatoe and a small helping of what looked like canned shrimp .....the clam chowder and sour dough was reasonable and the cake and pie looked good so you could try that. speaking of food...breakfast at the B nB was auesome....yogurt, fruit bowl which changed each morning... fresh pastry, cold cereals and juice...eggs if you want ..bagels and creme cheese one morning and you could help yourself all day to addictive chochlate chip home made cookies and there were all the little extras of snacks and chochlates on the bed and she cleaned up the rooms and bathrooms. There is one other bedroom for guests so you are sharing the whole space with one other couple. It is truely a home away from home and every other accommodation was a let down after this place ...........do not hesitate ....We are going back ..our teenage girls loved this place and are already asking to go back .......A great place to stay !!!
