One block from Dolores Park. Excuse me? One block from Dolores Park. Now that summer's starting up, do we really have to say anything more? If we must, this is a really beautiful studio located at 17th and Dolores (that one block from Dolores Park, by the way) with hardwood floors, separate kitchen with stainless steel appliances, French double doors, walk-in closet, and it allows cats. Even the exterior of the building looks nice, and you get a storage locker, to boot. Seriously, we can't find a catch. Maybe there's no bathroom? Perhaps an angry monkey lives in the closet? We'll leave those discoveries up to you.
If you're in the market for a studio in the Marina you're in luck, as we saw lots of viable apartments while finding this week's Craigslist deal. We chose this particular space, located on Chestnut about a block away from Fillmore, because it has been recently remodeled and features a more spacious common area than most of the other available places. We like that the kitchen is separate from the bedroom/living area and includes a little nook for a small dining table, so you don't have to eat a foot away from your bed. More snaps for all the storage space in the kitchen (love those white cabinets) and the included dishwasher and microwave.
