My husband & I are long-time San Francisco residents. We needed a short-term rental due to construction delays with a home we'd purchased. We chose the Fair Oaks rental because of: 1) its location (my husband once lived one block from the Oakley House; it's hard to beat this neighborhood for weather, amenities, walkability, access to public transit and convenient, central location); 2) the availability of off-street parking (parking anyway in the City can be very difficult; we wouldn't even consider a place without off-street parking); and 3) the photos (we were exhausted, and needed a relaxing retreat).
Oakley House exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful, and has been lovingly restored by the current owners. The rental unit was actually the owner's unit at one point, so the finishes are much nicer than one normally finds in a short-term rental, even a high-end one. The unit is quiet, well-equipped and comfortably furnished. We did not have much interaction with the owners, but they were welcoming, pleasant and helpful. All in all, we had a delightful stay, and would recommend this property without hesitation. We would stay here again if the need arises.
