Great House for 6-8
My wife and I were married in San Francisco and rented the house for our families to stay in for the wedding. David (the owner) greeted us when we arrived since he was there to finish cleaning out the hot-tub which the previous renters had trashed. He was very apologetic and had brought us a bottle of wine to make up for not being able to use the hot-tub that night. Both before and during our stay, he was very helpful and friendly.
The house itself was perfect for our group of 8 with three upstairs bedrooms and the downstairs master suite (which is huge and includes a sitting area and desk as well as its own door to the backyard…no view but very light and open feeling). Two of the upstairs rooms look out over the backyard, but the one on the front of the house has the same gorgeous city view as the living room. As advertised, the kitchen is well-appointed and has all the equipment you need. If you’re planning on doing a lot of cooking, think about bringing your own knives as the ones provided are pretty beat up, but otherwise everything is in good shape.
We really appreciated the small details that David has thought about at this property. It was a pleasant surprise to find things like jars of cotton balls and q-tips in the bathrooms and lots of hangers in the closets. However, as some reviewers have noted, there are a few minor maintenance issues. David asked us not to open several windows since not all the hardware was installed and they would fall out if we opened them. However, he said the parts were on order so that should be resolved soon. Other things like dented floor registers and screw holes left in the bathrooms from old toilet roll holders detract a bit from the appearance of the house but don’t really negatively affect your stay. The entire house was impeccably clean.
Having a large living room, TV room, and dining room for our families to spread out across was perfect and we’re so glad we rented this house rather than trying to cram everyone into hotel rooms for five nights. The location was nice, in a quiet area but within a short walk to restaurants, shops, and a Whole Foods as well as a short drive from downtown. Parking on the block is limited to 2 hours during the day without a permit, but non-permitted street parking starts on the next block over and is generally pretty easy to find.
Overall, if you’re looking for a quiet, pleasant place to stay for a group of 6-8 people, I’d highly recommend renting this house.
