This week, the Wall Street Journal reported on SF's newest property to hit the market--a whopping $30 million stunner perched on top of Pacific Heights. And while expensive homes are nothing new to San Francisco, this got us thinking--if homes go for $30 million, how high do rentals go?

We've tracked down a few of the boldest, swankiest, priciest properties for rent in San Francisco right now. Behold our favorites in the slideshow below:
