Couldn't have a better start to our holiday

Couldn't have a better start to our holiday
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Nancy's little cottage as our first stop of our 3 week US road trip and it was a perfect start.
Cow Hollow is a quiet, very pretty neighbourhood but really well placed with great shops and restaurants in Chestnut and Union Street within easy walking distance. It was an added bonus that the bus stops on the corner with really convenient connection to North Beach, Downtown , Cable cars, Fisherman's wharf etc.
The cottage itself is really lovely and very well furnished. Bedroom very comfortable with windows on three sides. The kitchen equipped to the highest standard I think we have ever seen, high quality cooking gear and sharp knives! (unheard of). The garden is really pretty and it is so calm, tucked in the garden of the big house (but with independent access.
Unfortunately Nancy was not able to be there when we were but was in touch every day to make sure everything was ok and we were having a good time, as was her friend Pam who was their to receive us and make us welcome.
One of the nicest places we have ever stayed

Stunning garden cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for us to stay! Close to family, walkable to public transportation, access to many venues, and a gracious hostess as well. And, her adorable dogs welcome you "home" after your day of activities. The cottage is exactly as pictured…tastefully decorated and fully equipped. It is the best we have found in our twice-a-year visits to San Francisco. We just hope we can "book" our preferred times before others find this wonderful gem.

Perfect gem

  • 5 of 5
Stays in San Francisco have long been special but having Nancy's wonderful cottage for nine days made this a fantastic and unforgettable holiday. This little oasis of comfort was beautifully quaint but fully modernized and provided us with everything. We were part of a quiet neighbourhood but could walk to the nearby Presidio, shop on Union Street or catch a close bus to anywhere. A comfortable luxurious bed, completely outfitted kitchen and private patio awaited us each time we returned. We shared Nancy's own blooming and fragrant garden and were greeted by her sweet dogs Sadie and Twyla. Thank you so much Nancy for all your suggestions and especially for your help with the airport. We look forward to next time!

City garden cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at Nancy's cottage in a very nice neighborhood. The beauty and fragrant smells of the garden are a bonus. The home is decorated with great attention to detail, a bright kitchen with all the necessities and a cozy living room made us very comfortable when not exploring this great city. Nancy was a friendly and helpful host. The space was perfect for the two of us

Cottage with Hummingbirds!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Cottage for 2 weeks the end of March, early April. I was taking a baking course at the San Francisco Baking Institute and wanted my husband to be in a good area to be able to experience San Francisco while I had the car. The cottage is in the perfect location to hike in the Presidio, visit the Golden Gate Park and the waterfront areas. There are wonderful restaurants nearby and anything else you might need. The cottage is just as pictured, an early 1900 cottage with pine floors, beautiful woodwork and many windows-most of which open to the beautiful San Francisco weather. The kitchen is beautiful including the miniature gas stove from Italy. The whole neighborhood is gorgeous and the property sits way up on a hill. At the end of the street, there are views of the whole bay. We rented a very small car, which I recommend, so we had no trouble with street parking. We loved sharing our stay with the two little dogs and hummingbirds visit the garden regularly. Nancy was available for all our needs, showed concern that we were having a nice visit and had many recommendations. She left me a bouquet of tulips for on the steps for my birthday..what more can I say? Oh yes...there is a lovely gas fireplace!

Lovely Cottage! Great host!

  • 5 of 5
My stay at the cottage could not have been better. Nancy was great, and was always checking in to make sure that I had what I needed to enjoy my time there. The location is within walking distance to great restaurants, bars, sightseeing, shopping, and many amazing running trails. The place was very cozy and was stocked with everything you would need to feel at home. The cottage will be my home away from home for my future trips to San Francisco. Thank you Nancy for your hospitality!
