This is a meticulously maintained private home – NOT a full-time vacation rental. Long term owner occupants provide menus, maps and info on a multitude of local coffee and dining spots, places to shop, entertainment and transportation options.
We live in and enjoy this home full time and only rent it when we are away for an extended period. As long term owners we love the proximity to great dining, parks, convenient shopping, local farmers markets, easy transportation and quick freeway access to venture to mountains, desert, beaches and wineries.
We just returned from spending our week in this beautiful, comfortable home! There were three adults, one coming in from Chicago and us two from Canada. The house has everything you could possibly need for a great stay. All three of us love to cook and were very excited to see the gourmet kitchen. Turns out that we were way too tired from touring to do any cooking and had take out most nights, or walked to local restaurants. Palmya for Lebanese or Ragazza for fantastic pizza. You can walk to Alamo square, The Castro ( a must do, in my opinion it is one of the nicest neighbourhoods in San Fran) and Haight/Ashbury. We lived in San Fran in the late 90's and we know our way around but we did see some changes, especially the Cliff house, what have they done?!! If you have a car and a GPS then go up into the Oakland hills to Tildan Park. You will see the most beautiful views from the lookout on Grizzly Peak road. No guidebook ever lists it but it is spectacular! Great house to experience The Bay area from. It was nice to put the key in the door at the end of every day!
My husband and I stayed here for one week late June. This house is really beautiful. Artfully and eclectically decorated, very spacious and immaculate, lots of light, an incredible kitchen which we made good use of, very quiet and private-feeling at night, a beautiful garden in back to view from above or to hang out in, easy access to public transportation, etc. etc. etc. A guest joined us for two nights and she was very content in the separate bed/bath/sitting room area in the lower level. The owners were very helpful and specific in ways that we appreciated, including a hand-drawn map of the area highlighting local markets and restaurants and coffee shops. We will be staying here again for sure.
Our family of three stayed at this lovely Vicorian row house for one week in March. The photos simply do not do the property justice. It is larger, brighter and better appointed than the photos convey. The owners make it easy for you to feel like you are right at home, with use of a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, lovely backyard and comfortable bed and bath facilities. There is also lots of comfortable living space so you can just hang out if you want. The home is located about a five minute walk to the N line of the Muni system, so access anywhere in the Bay area is very convenient. We purchased 10-day Muni passes which provide access to venues like SFMOMA and The Exploratorium, in addition to unlimited transit use.
There is plenty of local shopping and a wide variety of affordable restaurants nearby. We love vintage and had more than our fill of spots to explore right in the neighbourhood. For eats, we really liked the closeby Little Chihauhau for its authentic Mexican food to enjoy in a casual dining atmosphere or to take out and also The Woodhouse on nearby Market Street for fantastic seafood (although be warned that this is a small, very busy restaurant, so try going off-peak).
The owners will provide as much or as little assistance as you require. We also want to add that you could probably eat off the floors in this home...it is extremely clean. Overall, this is one of the two best properties we have stayed in during twenty years of renting from owners in North America and Europe. This property also provides outstanding value for the prices charged. In fact, overall we think it deserves six stars!
I want to start out by saying that it is hard to put in words how great of experience we had with this house. It was truly amazing.
My husband and I were fortunate to spend a week in this stunning house at the end of February 2013. To say that we were impressed with the property is definitely not enough. We were absolutely Wowed by it. It combined beautiful art, vintage, yet comfortable furniture and modern technology in a very thoughtful way.
The kitchen was equipped and supplied better than we could have ever expected. Yosemite coffee that the owners left for us to enjoy was delicious. It was a perfect start to each day. We stopped by Bi-Rite (local grocery store) several times and enjoyed tasty dinners in the comfort of our (vacation) home. It was a great ending to a day of exploring the city.
Location... It was perfect. There were plenty of restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. From near-by restaurants we would recommend Magnolia’s (Micro-brewery/gastro-pub with awesome brunch menu on weekends) and Cha- Cha-Cha (tapas restaurant with great sangrias).
The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. Lynne answered all of our questions timely and clearly. The house had signs and directions that made it very easy to figure out how to use cooking utensils, turn on and off appliances, etc. We greatly appreciate how accommodating and attentive Lynne and Michael were to our questions and feedback.
Our stay in San Francisco was so enjoyable that we already cannot wait to be back. I am sure we will stay in this property again and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting San Francisco.
We had the chance of staying for 2 weeks in september 2012 in this charming updated victorian home. Since we were travelling with friends (another couple), we very much enjoyed the 2 level living that gave us more intimacy. And, as the other reviews state, the photos don't even begin to translate the sole and heart of this house and it's garden. It is truly a artist retreat.
The location is perfect, calm and quiet but near everything. We could walk to restaurants, shops and nice markets or hop on a nearby bus to get to almost anywhere in S.F in a very short time...It was also easy to take the car and go out of the city.
The owners made us feel very warmly welcome and responded quickly to our e-mails. They even made a little map of the nearby shops and restaurant wich was very usefull.
In the Haight area, very close to bus lines that went everywhere we wanted. The listing photos and description couldn't convey how lovely this private home is. Back yard barbecue made two dinners easy and delicious. Steak one night and oysters on the grill the other. The kitchen couldn't have been more completely supplied. Our one mistake was shopping at a couple local markets before checking in. The owners even supplied a bag of coffee beans from Yosemite. One day we rented a car from the Enterprise rental company on Geary and drove to Healdsburg for some wine tasting. Went to Selby Winery Tasting Room and then further north to Coppola's. Selby is very distinctive and a must for tasting, we thought. Fun activities in the city were the Exploratorium with the Tactile Dome, a cruise to Alcatraz, the aquarium. Museum's that had special exhibits worth the extra fee: Legion of Honour, SFMOMA! De Younge. We got CityPass's for SF online, had it mailed for a little extra and could ride all the muni trains, buses and cable cars just by showing the pass. Included entrance to some museums (special exhibits extra sometimes), cruise or Alcatraz, aquarium. Check the web site details. SF is a walking city. Very fun and having the house on Waller to return made it extra special. Finding fresh foods, seafoods, fruits, breads and bringing them home for breakfasts and meals of your choosing, what an extra added delight. We found and Italian restaurant, Il Borgo a few blocks away on Laguna and it was delightful. Everyone found their favorites on the menu. Carpaccio, yum, if you like that. Homemade mango spamoni. Owners were so responsive to all our questions, even very reachable (I used email notes, nothing urgent); they really were inviting us to enjoy their home. They left us a list of nearly eateries. The Thai place Thep Phaom was great, a just a three block walk. We would, and already have, recommended this property to family and friends. A delightful treat.
