I'm a San Francisco resident since 1999 and appreciate the beauty and character of the historical homes of San Francisco.

Live like a true San Franciscan in an 1899 Victorian which is located in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods of San Francisco where you get the local feel, from the creative arts to the array of savory foods from the diverse ethnic restaurants.
I love the local feel of the neighborhood. Dolores Park, which is around the corner is a great place to soak in the sun and people watch. A short walk to the Valencia Street corridor and I can find almost any ethnic cuisine to fulfill my palate.
Good news: beautiful, super cute, loved the back patio, comfy beds, good shower, walking distance to great spots, Uber was our means of transport. Bad news: dog rescue being operated next door- earplugs needed, incessant barking, one got out and we had to deal with it so it didn't get hit in the street-not really how we wanted to spend our last night. The owner did respond to messages, but he was out of the country and got them after the fact. TV needs replaced: no adjustment fixed this picture-NCAA tournament was on and we're a bunch of girls from IN who wanted to watch. TWO rolls of TP for 5 girls for 4 nights....TWO. I get having to buy some TP but really, TWO? No wifi on back patio fyi-not a huge deal. They ask that you start a load of laundry when you leave, but there's no detergent. A handful of Tide Pods would be nice. Two washcloths. Oh and the cleaning staff was still there at 4pm and we had to fold the load of sheets in the dryer. So a bunchof little things resulted in 3 stars. Most of it was not a big deal, but we felt like they were worth mentioning for an honest review.
This was a beautiful home and our experience was a great one. We felt at home and relaxed and slept so well on the comfortable beds. The neighborhood was easy to access and close to everything- we would most certainly stay here again!
OMG this house is gorgeous!!!! wow! Its straight out of HGTV – amazing! The attention to detail in the décor is outstanding – the claw foot tub, lighting fixtures, unique furniture and even the modern appliances that blend perfectly with the Victorian feel. Its really amazing! I kinda chuckled when I saw the hinge photos in the rental listing, but I get it now. The detail in this renovated Victorian is amazing. Most Victorian homes in SF are made of paint and dirt, but this home is immaculate. Its very cozy and the layout is perfect for small dinner parties or taking time out to have privacy. The backyard is completely private with a working fireplace. The flat is a few blocks from Castro street and a block from Dolores Park, easy buslines and J church train. Very quiet...did I mention gorgeous?!?
Check-in/check-out was super easy, key in the lockbox - have a great time! (no annoying property managers ;)
Navin - thank you for opening your doors to us, we LOVED staying there. I have never been in a Victorian that was in such immaculate condition. I know you put a ton of money into your home – again, gorgeous!
I can't wait to have more friends come visit so we can all come back!
I am totally depressed this morning as I am writing this review from my cubicle in crisp East Coast weather wishing I was still there! We stayed there for a family vacation/marriage celebration and it was perfect! Especially with a toddler. The backyard was the perfect place for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning and star gazing at night! We felt perfectly at home and enjoyed every minute. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Any questions or concerns we had were answered in an instant during our stay. Navin was excellent! We can't wait to come back. Go Giants!
I'll be brief, but honest. My husband, infant daughter and I stayed here for just under a week in August. We were quite excited to stay at this property as photos look so enticing. From the moment of arrival we were off to a bad start. We arrived approx 2 hours AFTER check in and the place was a disaster. The cleaner was there scrambling to get started. She vaccumed around us and did a quick job. Bottom line is THIS PLACE LOOKS TIRED. It has beautiful decor that once was looking fresh I am certain but you can tell this place is a revolving door. Not to mention the continuous barking dog next door and the fact that the back porch area is so unkept (fireplace does not work). The toilet seat was broken, the knob on the bathtub fell off when I tried to bathe my daughter. You can hear the downstairs apt people etc. List goes on. The neighbourhood is touch and go to. Just be wary when renting this place. It needs some TLC and an honest review so such changes are made.
