Centrally located the North of Panhandle Area, just around the corner from Alamo Square, & the famous Painted Ladies. There are many unique shops, specialty food stores, bars and restaurants in the area. The entrance to Golden Gate Park, aka the Panhandle, is located 2 blocks away, and the Castro, as well as the Upper and Lower Haight, are within walking distance. I don't advise renting a car, but if you do, I have parking for a regular sized car. Many SUV's won't fit bc of height clearance.
