A comfortable family vacation home,Perfect location in a quiet and very safe neighbourhood.
I too love to travel, so I know how important it is to have a clean and safe haven to go back to after a busy day of sightseeing. I have given it my utmost to provide you with all the comforts of a 'Home away from Home'. It is a family home. So if you are looking to party till the wee small hours this is not the place.Respect and consideration for both myself and the neighbours is VERY important. The home is perfect for a small family. Or 2 couples. More than 4 adults would be too much with 1 bathroom.
The House is situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood with lots of street parking. It is never an issue parking right outside the home. No permits or street cleaning, so that means no parking tickets. A rare find in San Francisco.
It is a spacious house with a large living room. Hardwood floors/rugs.Working fireplace. Very nicely furnished. Big screen TV/ DVD/cable/tivo/wireless. Selection of DVD movies. Large dining room. Dining table seats 6. The Breakfast Room is a bright and sunny place for you to have your coffee and check your email. Table and chairs to seat 4.
Kitchen is a good size and works well with all the amenities you could possibly need for your short stay. All new appliances. Lots of glasses and dinnerware for casual and fine dining.
All 3 bedrooms are a good size, with TVs. dressers and large closets. 1 King pillow top, 2 Queen pillow top . All top quality linens and down quilts.
1 Bathroom with bathtub and separate shower stall. A small selection of
shampoo/conditioner, body wash/ toothpaste to get you started. Top quality linens and towels.
Garden has seating/dining table for 6.Plus some extra chairs for lounging. Gas BBQ.
I reside on the property downstairs in a seperate unit so you wont see me unless you want to.
Please be respectful that I am downstairs. So that I can continue sharing my home with you, and offer reasonable prices I ask for your assistance in conserving energy by turning off heat and lights when not home and at bedtime.
I will help with any advice you need on directions or places of interest. There are maps for your use.
A 10 minute walk to quaint West Portal. A lovely area with coffee shops and restaurants/movie theatre. Municipal station which will take you downtown in 8 minutes.
Stern Grove is a 3 minute drive or a 15 minute walk. They have wonderful summer evening concerts.
#43 bus route around the corner takes you to the Marina District in about 40 minutes, going through the famous Haight /Ashbury area. There you will find lots of things to see and do, Fort Mason, Fishermans Wharf, Ghiradelli Square. All within walking distance from the Marina.
If you have a car then we are perfectly situated for the 101/280 freeway on ramps. City Center is a 10 minute drive. SFO Airport is a quick 15 minutes drive away. Bay Bridge is 10 minutes away. San Francisco is so small that nowhere is really far away.
So pack your bag and come see it for yourself.
You wont be disappointed.

I work with children and love to travel. I am particular about the places I like to stay. Cleanliness is one of my stipulations so I have given it my utmost to make my home a perfect place for your visit. I haven't had any complaints so far. I will go above and beyond to make your stay an enjoyable one.
The Owner purchased this house in 2004
I fell in love with San Francisco after my first visit in 1994 and knew that one day I would make it my home.
The location is perfect to come back to after a hectic day of sightseeing. Not too far from anywhere but peaceful enough to relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A wonderful safe neighbourhood for walking. Ample street parking right outside the home. No parking restrictions or limitations. If you choose not to have a rental car we are well situated for public transportation. Bus stop at corner. Muni 10 minutes walk @ West Portal. Glen Park Bart station 15 minute walk. The BART goes right into airport.
This is a wonderful place to stay while visiting San Francisco. It is easy to visit all of the local attractions by day and escape to a quiet home at night. My wife and I stayed the weekend with our daughter and exchange student guest. It was a perfect and safe location for us. Assuming this home is available on our next trip to SF, we will definitely return. Julie was great to work with and very responsive.
In my review I mentioned that there was a cat. Apparently the cat passed on 4 years ago. Sorry for the miscommunication. If you are sensitive to cats as I am, you may still notice that your allergies may bother you though. Otherwise the house was fabulous.
We just stayed at Julie's home. We traveled with boys 18 and 15. The home is very quaint and located in the West Portal area. Julie greeted us on arrival to address any concerns and was very helpful. She ensured that the house was filled with so many extras that you would not normally expect from a VRBO rental such as shampoo, toilet paper, milk, juice, coffee, coffee filters to only mention a few. The home is very comfortable and the beds are comfortable. The linens are soft and high quality. Somethings you will need to know is that you will need a car to get around. It is about 30 minutes to downtown and longer during peak hours. There is a whole foods very close and a few restaurants. We ended up heading closer to downtown for great food. Since there is only one bathroom I would suggest that a family of 5 at the most for this home. It is a smaller bathroom so it is difficult for two to get ready at the same time. There are televisions in each room and the main tv has a pvr for recording shows while you are out sight seeing. Overall this is a home you should consider if you are looking for a quiet residential location. Other reviews have talked about the narrow streets. There were of no concern for us. Parking is right out the front door. Since Julie is right below you will always have any concerns looked after right away but if you are a group looking to stay up late and make noise this is not a place for you since she needs to rest also. Julie has a cat which bothered my allergies so keep that in mind. She does keep the house spotless though and you will be hard pressed to find cat fur!
Met with traveling friends here, this house was more than i was expecting. Beautifully furnished, top quality linens, and very comfy beds! Will definitely be back!!!
Wee had a wonderful last minutiae stay at this fabulous house. Our 1st rental cancelled on us last minute. After contacting Julie she was happy to help us out. The house is immaculate with everything you could possibly need. Parking right outside the font door and location perfect for anywhere you need to be in the city. We were so happy to have found this amazing lovely home and Julie is really helpful. Would recommend and this house made our holiday really good.
My husband and I stayed at this home with our two five year olds in April and had an excellent time. The home is wonderful. It is spacious and comfortable but what really made the stay so easy was how well appointed the owner left the home for us. I am usually a well prepared traveller but if there was anything that I forgot it was no problem at all because Julie had it there for us. She even had left legos for our children to play with - very helpful upon arrival so that the kids busied themselves with them while we unpacked! There were also story books in both of the kids rooms. The kitchen had anything we could have needed to make eating in painless. It was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, bottle openers, pot holders, etc. The bedrooms are nice, clean and large but also so cozy and the generous closets (with hangers, of course!) make it so easy. The location is very nice. The home is close to grocery stores with parking lots and street parking was never a problem. The neighborhood is quiet and lovely. We lived in the city for 12 years before we left it and coming to this home to stay felt great. It was wonderful place to stay with our kids. The home itself is wonderful but the way that the owner prepares it for her guests is what really made the stay here so enjoyable. Thank you Julie - we had a fantastic stay in your West Portal home and look forward to being able to do it again!
