About George

I'am a 5th generation San Francisco native who has renovated and restored this classic SF Victorian Home to it's original glory. Pictures do not do justice it was built in 1875 and is one of the first homes in the Marina/Cow Hollow district. Come and enjoy it's the best!

George purchased this house in 2012

Why George chose Cow Hollow

I really love this home. It's just a great combination of San francisco History blended,built in 1875, with the San Francisco of today. The photo is from the Marina which is a short walk from Scott Street. All that come here enjoy the location and history that this property has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Location, safety, views, great restaurants nightlife and shopping. Reviews by travelers confirm all of this.

Lovely home in the Marina District

  • 5 of 5

George the owner is a great guy to work with. The house was so cozy so beautiful. The rooms were very comfortable. We had a family of 9 and we fit perfectly. The only bad part with that many people was taking showers. We ran out of hot water after 3 showers. A few things could be updated but Other than that no negatives on the house. There are some good restaurants in walking distance. A must to try is mamacitas. So good!

Perfect place to convene with family.

  • 5 of 5

The location and the layout of the house were just perfect for our needs. After four days we had difficulty pulling ourselves away. Our family enjoyed every aspect of the layout. The kitchen was well equipped, with all utensils and all condiments provided. Thanks to perfect weather we were able to spend hours outside in the privacy of the garden. We would rent this place again in a heartbeat!

Perfect San Francisco Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer home to celebrate the Thanksgiving week in San Francisco. We have spent the holidays together for more than 20 years and this was the best! Your home was welcoming, spacious and located in a perfect area of the city for visiting the area. We hope to come back! Thank you for your hospitality and Merry Christmas to you. Perhaps we will meet again in 2015!

Best deal in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and nicely renovated home in Cow Hollow/Marina district. Great beds and amenities. Nice patio and garden. Easy walking distance to restaraunts, Presidio, and the bay. Great for large family or multiple couples. Would definitely stay there again -- I've already shared the link with a number of friends planning future SF trips.

Fantastic Gem in the Marina

  • 5 of 5

This residence was the perfect location for our family while visiting San Francisco for a family wedding. The house is quite wonderful and full of character. Comfortable beds, lots of fluffy bath towels, a well equipped kitchen, plenty of room to move about with great high ceilings and a nice outdoor patio to enjoy the sunshine. Walking distance to anything and everything you would need only a few blocks away in one of the best neighborhoods. Easy walk to busses too. With our cars, we had no problems finding additional parking within a block or 2 of the house and we had the spot out front. The owner, George, was the best to work with. Kind, considerate and accommodating. This has been one of our best rental experiences.

Good for Families

  • 4 of 5

The house was not the best house we have ever rented with VRBO but was I would say it was shabbily chic comfortable. Mattress in back bedroom should be replaced and dining table while functional was very distressed/scratched. On the other hand the house was clean, and big enough for 7 people and in a very good area of San Francisco for shopping and restaurants. You definitely need to rent a car and you can park out front. Probably should be updated with new carpeting, paint, etc. All in all we had a great time and our grandsons 6 and 10 years old loved the city sights and the country side as well. Owner was easy to deal with and answered our questions promptly.

Owner's Response: As Noted, this home is older but very clean & classic. All the beds are less then two years old and well maintained as well as most of the furniture in the living room. The dining rooom table actually is older but very functional, and with wear and tear comes a few scratches. We are constanly looking to improve our guest experince so all feedback is helpful. I would say for the price and the location there is not a better option for a family looking to stay in this neighborhood of San Francisco.
