The views and light are exquisite in this apt. Cow Hollow is the ultimate local's area. It is safe and full of great cafes, restaurants and wine bars. You can walk or easily take transit to all the major sites (Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli are 10 mins away walking).
There are also multiple farmer's markets and great organic stores just blocks away (Real foods). It is close to great trails for running and walking by the Bay and you can hear the fog horns at night.
