Very comfortable, beautifully appointed private home.

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.
