Hi, both my husband Mike and I were born and raised, met, married and raised our three beautiful children in this wonderful city. I am a 4th generation San Franciscan. Our early 1900's home boasts of vintage charm and warmth for all those that visit. Come see for yourself !

There were originally two houses built in the West Portal area in the early 1900s, ours still proudly stands, the other was destroyed. This house has survived numerous earthquakes.

This property was quite a find! It was identical to the web site photos, however the photos couldn't quite capture the coziness and tasteful amenities.
Being a "clean freak" I was totally impressed with the pristine condition of the apartment, it was so well cared for.
Linda was very helpful regarding restaurants, Muni logistics, etc and the BEST perk was her lovely and delicious breakfast surprises each day!
I have already recommended this property to all of my friends, it was awesome and I will be back!

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend while attending our granddaughter's first birthday celebration nearby. The location is perfect and transportation into the city and to the airport could not have been easier. The suite included a perfect small breakfast each day, and a wonderful bathroom and patio plus lots of good information for a SF visitor. We will certainly consider staying here again on a future SF visit!

lovely place to stay while visiting the city by the bay

My daughter and I spent a long weekend visiting San Francisco in October of last year. The accommodations were excellent. There is a private entrance which is nice. The bathroom has been remodeled and is very classy. I slept on the big bed and my daughter slept on a blow up bed that was as big and comfy as a single bed. It worked out very well for us. The location is perfect if you want to visit San Francisco as well as other sites in the bay area. The owner, Linda, was very helpful in assisting with public transportation options to and from San Francisco and to the airport. There is a train that departs right around the corner from the apartment that goes directly into the city. Also there are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Overall, I would rate our stay as very pleasant and would highly recommend it to others visiting the bay area.

Wonderful Stay

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was very clean and the hardwood floors and bathroom really made it feel upscale. I was in San Francisco for a trade show and all the event hotels were either booked or very extensive. I found this rental on VRBO and it worked out perfectly. I had never been to West Portal but it was a really nice area to explore. I took a morning jog each day, once down into a really pretty local park (Pine Lake I believe). The Muni was really close and easy to take into San Francisco. I took it every day to the Moscone Center and I was there in no time.
You also can not dismiss the little breakfast treat waiting for you each day. It was really nice to have a little something from someplace local after my run in the morning. I will definitely looking into staying here again.

My friend and I were out visiting my daughter in San Fran and I have always loved West Portal. When I saw Linda's listing I thought this would be perfect and it really was.
Linda's home is beautifully kept, modern, clean with very comfortable bedding and a spacious, updated bathroom complete with large spa bath. The courtyard is very private and has a lovely garden setting. We could walk to some brilliant restaurants just 5 mins away and had public transport at our finger tips. We had our own car and found parking very easy on the street just out front. Linda was great about letting us use her washer/dryer before we left.
All in all, a great vacation home and I will be sure to return.
