We have lived in the upstairs flat for 7 years and love living in San Francisco. San Francisco is one of the world's most beautiful cities and we enjoy every minute of it. We walk the neighborhoods, eat in fabulous restaurants and attend all of the many exciting events this city has to offer.

Dede purchased this condo in 2003

The downstairs unit was original remodeled and lived in by family members who have now relocated. We want to share this lovely space with people who would like to have a real San Francisco experience.

When you stay here, you will be just a cable car ride away from Union Square in San Francisco and a bike ride away from the Golden Gate Bridge. Take a trolley to the Ferry Building to visit an amazing farmer's market on Saturday morning. Catch a cab on the corner to the best restaurants in the world. You will be a 15 minute drive to Sausalito and an hour away from the the Napa and Sonoma wine country. From the roof deck you will be able to see ships sailing by Alcatraz and Angel Islands

PERFECT LOCATION, PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Wow, where do I start. Dede, the owner, was just delightful. The place is very well appointed, clean and very comfortable, and it could not be located any better. Everything in the Fisherman's Wharf area is easily walkable with numerous restaurants and bars within a stones throw.The rooftop deck was spectacular and we used it very frequently. Views were 360 degrees and included both the Golden Gate and Alcatraz. There is even a small neighborhood store right at the base of the unit for any late night snack or libation needs run by a really cool family. Parking is also indoor, secure and very ample, but you won't need a car. The only concern that we would mention is that it is very important that you are physically able to do spiral staircases. They are wide and high quality but they are necessary to access both bedrooms and the rooftop deck. We cannot recommend Dede's place any more highly. Great owner, great space and excellent location. We'll be back!

WONDERFUL STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at 2949 Larkin! The description of the property and the pictures are totally accurate. Everything everyone has written prior to my review is ABSOLUTELY TRUE! Save yourself some time and look no further!
I do want to add that the beds are extremely comfortable and showers are wonderful!!! Dede is a gracious host and answered all our questions. I highly recommend this property and we will book it again when we visit San Francisco!! Oh, and don't miss Tony's Famous Pizza in North Beach and book your Alcatraz tickets in advance!

A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO STAY IN A BEAUTIFUL CITY!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at several VRBO properties over the past few years and have yet to be dissapointed. However, this was the first VRBO we rented that the owner made the effort to welcome us at the door and show us around the property!! While she always respected our privacy, Dede made us feel like a guest in her home rather than a temporary tenant. The flat is very spacious. Our family of four had more than enough room. While we only ate breakfast there the kitchen was well supplied if you would want to cook a meal. We enjoyed going up on the sun deck and having a glass of wine before we went out for the evening. There is a Walgrens and Trader Joes within walking distance. However, don't discount the small corner market just a few steps from your front door. We found the store to be well stocked for most things and the employees were very friendly. They may be a little bit more expensive but you will be doing enough walking when in San Francisco. Also, you can pick up a bus right in front of the store. If you stay at Dede's for several days, definitely take advantage of seven day MUNI pass. We really enjoyed our stay at Dede's and will definitely stay here again when we return to San Francisco.

PERFECT HOME IN THE PERFECT LOCATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
Dede and her home are both very special. It is immediately obvious that she is a very warm and inviting person, who takes pride in providing the best accommodations for a superb adventure in San Francisco.
The home is astonishingly beautiful with slab granite surfaces, stainless appliances, numerous windows to let in natural light, comfy beds, large dining area, spiral staircases, spacious wardrobes, and the BEST rooftop patio!
The kitchen is very well stocked and the laundry room even had Shout, so I could get the stain out of my daughter's white pants.
The location was perfect. We only needed our car when we travelled to Muir Woods. We were steps from Ghiradelli's, a block from the beach-- yes, we got in and swam!, a 5 minute walk from numerous seafood restaurants along the wharf, a 1 minute walk to the cable car station, a 5 minute walk to the best breakfast place around (Hollywood Cafe), 2 minute walk to the Maritime Museum, I could go on and on!!!
I enjoyed running from the house along the bay and marinas several mornings, and the bike rental shop was 1 block away. Do not miss out on riding bikes across the Golden Gate Bridge!
You must also visit Alcatraz during your stay. The tour is really well done, the evening tour is the best. The pier from which you catch the ferry across to Alcatraz is also just a short 10 minute walk from the house.
Lastly, Safeway and Trader Joes are a short 5 minute walk.
Gosh, we will miss Dede and 2949 Larkin, but we hope to be back again to visit!

PERFECT LODGINGS!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Dede's apartment is a SPECTACULAR find....simply perfect. From our family of four's perspective, this was a win/win/win/win. Dad's opinion first: too-good-to-be-true parking arrangements. This for me is key in San Francisco, but this is like parking in your own driveway it's so amazingly convenient. Easy in/easy out...I have never had this experience in SF; no need to make the decision to lose a great on-street parking spot. From Mom's perspective: a washer dryer. Easy to keep the packing light and the boys clean and presentable. From the boy's perspective: screamingly fast wifi, a shower that's like standing in a warm thunderstorm (a good thing) and THE ROOF DECK.

Several things worked for all of us: the location is key for getting to just about any place in the city fast...Bay screams you down to the Embarcadero and easy access to downtown...up Green to a great neighborhood necessities at the corner of Polk, the locale just WORKS.

The apartment is clean, bright, with all needed conveniences...larger than the pictures show. The only drawback might be the circular stairs for some...it was just another cool feature for all of us.

Finally, Dede was WONDERFUL. She stayed up late to welcome us to the apartment when our connecting flight was delayed, and sent us off with a warm farewell on our last day.

As I said.....PERFECT!!!!!
