Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Cathy & David,

We had a wonderful time in SF. You have a beautiful house in a great area.

the facilities were fantastic and very comfortable. I really appreciated the

large off street parking for the mini van.

We will take back fond memories to Australia and recommend your place to

everyone.

Many thanks,

David Morgan and the Tan Clan

WONDERFUL FAMILY HOLIDAY!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in December, 2008 was simply wonderful. The location could not have been better. We rented a vehicle for our stay and the garage 1 block away was great. The children loved the turret with the big TV. Everything was spacious and clean and the beds were oh sooooo comfortable! The park one block away was great for the kids too. When we return, this would be the property we would stay at.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home!

FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Well I have been slack not writing this review earlier. This was our first stop on a big USA trip & it was a great pick. We were two families travelling with 4 kids. The house was everything we expected and more. We really wanted an old Victorian home & this home has been well cared for. The beds were super comfy after such a long flight & linen clean. The loft upstairs is great for the kids to hang out with toys, books & TV & the bed in the turret worked well for the older children. Kitchen was great with basics provided plus a huge dining room for all of us to congregate around before & at the end of our day. The laundry room was a bonus & made travelling to our next destination which was without laundry services a pleasure knowing all laundry was done. The bus stops right out front & makes getting around too easy. Short walk to Divasdero St & our new found market Birite. Many short walks with ice creams in hand from Birite through Alamo Square on the way home. We loved our time here. There is still the noise of living close to other homes so don't think it will be super quiet, plus the street noise. This didn't bother us one bit & we live in rural country in Australia! It all adds to the hustle & bustle of this beautiful city San Francisco. We rode the open deck bus to the city which goes right past. the public transport was a dream & other passengers super helpful. Cathy was super with a few minor issues & a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION ON BUS ROUTE

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 8 stayed here for a long weekend. It was the perfect size / style for three adults and a bunch of kids (9, 11, 13, 15 and 18 years old). The apartment is beautifully decorated / furnished and after previously spending a few weekends in San Fran in modern faceless hotels, this place felt like home - such character and history.

You are literally 1-2 blocks from the Painted Ladies (Alamo Square park) with a stunning view of the city. The #5 bus stops right outside and will take you to Market Street where you can connect to virtually anywhere.

We enjoyed Chinatown, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, the GG bridge and a baseball game while we were here (tip: make sure you get Alcatraz / Giants tix in advance) and it was great to come back home each evening and discuss the day.

Both the owner and the housekeeper were super helpful and we appreciate them accommodating a special request for some of our party that were returning to England on the day we left.

Highly recommended!

PERFECT FOR A CITY TRIP

  • 5 of 5
We travelled to San Francisco for two purposes- to run the marathon & to see the city. This apartment could not have been any better for those things.
Before we arrived, the owner gave excellent information- both about the property & other local knowledge.

The house itself is amazing- the photos do not do it justice. The rooms are large, the beds are heavenly, the kitchen is superb. There are two lounge areas, so if you're two families or groups wanting a bit of alone time, it's ideal.
The bus outside takes you downtown in 15 minutes, or to Golden Gate Park & the ocean. Get yourself a Muni 'Clipper' card.
There are some great local restaurants & cafes- we can highly recommend Eddie's Cafe for post race breakfasts & Cafe Abir for excellent cappuccinos- both on Divisidero. There are any number of good places to dine in the evening- Green Chile Kitchen, Little Star Pizza & a little farther Roam Artisan Burgers, on Union Street, to name a few.

It's a short bus ride, or half hour walk via Panhandle, to Golden Gate Park. Close by is Amoeba Music (you have to go if you love record stores!) & Whole Foods, which is great for coeliac veggies like me.

All in all, a great stay in a perfect location, enjoying wonderful facilities.

Highly recommended.

AN ABSOLUTE TREASURE OF AN APARTMENT!!!......NONE OF US WANTED TO LEAVE!!!

  • 5 of 5
From the time we stepped through the door until the time we left, we were amazed at how much we felt at home in this beautiful, quaint, extremely well-cared for and well-equipped apartment!!! To say that it's an apartment is not really doing it justice, however, since it's more like a huge home....so huge that at times, we had to search to round up one person or another in our family group of seven. There are actually two levels to this place, and that top level is huge and light-filled, beautifully decorated and furnished, and even has a round bed in the turret section of the building. The main area has a living area off the main bedroom, two additional bedrooms, an office area with computer, a large wonderful kitchen for cooking amazing meals, and a very elegant dining room which offered great ambiance for our stay-at-home meals. Everything you need is in the apartment, from iron and ironing board to washer and dryer. There is a long flight of stairs from the entrance up to the apartment, but we greatly appreciated that little stair-climbing workout after far too many sinful meals and treats as we roamed the city. However, I must say that my mother, who is 85, managed those stairs without any problem whatsoever, and we all felt that the separation from entryway to living area added far more privacy to the apartment......which we loved. It was like our glorious, gorgeous little sanctuary up there! Linens were extremely well-stocked as well. Additionally, just outside our door we could catch the MUNI #5 to anywhere and everywhere in the city. What a wonderful bonus that was! Very quiet area, short walk to Alamo Square Park, "painted lady" homes, and some great little "colorful" eateries on Divisadero, including a great little cafe called the Oasis, Mojo's Cafe down a few blocks, and our favorite, Little Star Pizza. With the great location of this apartment and the MUNI #5 bus stop just outside, this is where you want to be! I might mention as well that the owner is quick to respond to any questions you may have, and soon after my arrival home, my deposit had already been credited back to my account. Great place, great location, great owner! My family cannot stop raving about our "home away from home" in San Fran! We will certainly rent this apartment again on our next visit, and I can honestly say that if you want a great San Fran experience, this is absolutely the apartment you want to rent! We left our hearts there!!!
