Buena Vista House Rental Photos and Description
Spacious, light filled, 3 BR garden home in central SF, serenity,comfort, garage
Grand, three story centrally located San Francisco home offers a double living room with baby grand, formal dining room, and cook's kitchen opening onto tranquil urban garden. Take your pick of three light-filled bedrooms, lounge in the atrium/sunroom, read the paper on the comfy den sofa, dine at the large English oak dining room table or al fresco in the garden, sing around the baby grand piano, and soak/shower in the two bathrooms - one with spa-like soaking tub and slate floors. We provide wifi, satellite tv, and one-car garage.
There's a large kitchen with Wolf stove and Subzero refrigerator, walk-in pantry, laundry, formal dining room seating 12, and a double living room. Use the house as a home base for day trips around San Francisco, or relax with a book in the sunny atrium, watch satellite tv in the den, cook up a feast in our large kitchen, or barbeque on the garden patio.
The house is perfect for two small families, a family reunion, or a romantic holiday. Maximum capacity is six. The master bedroom suite has a king size bed, and the other two bedrooms have new queen beds with either down or down alternative duvets and loads of pillows.
The house is central (5-15 min. walks) to the Castro, NOPA, upper and lower Haight, Hayes Valley, and Mission districts, restaurants, cafes, and music venues, fabulous shopping, and Golden Gate Park with its museums, Japanese Tea Garden and Arboretum, all set among acres of spectacular cypress, lawns and gardens.
Downtown is a 15 minute train ride, the Ferry building (and America's Cup activities) is 20 min., and Fisherman's Wharf is about 30 min. using two trains. Trains run every 10-15 minutes from the Duboce Park stop 1 1/2 blocks away. Buses going north/south stop on our block, and we are happy to give you guidance on public transit.
We are caring and experienced hosts, frequent house traders, and international travelers. We love to share the insider's San Francisco -- whether restaurants, markets, shopping, museums/galleries, live music, hikes/walks/views, we will help you discover it. The Castro is the real San Francisco: friendly, lively, with beautiful homes, gardens and views, centrally located with a village character. Public transportation to the beach, downtown, Embarcadero/Ferry Building, SFO, and points north and south is 1 1/2 blocks away.
We want your stay in San Francisco to be comfortable and memorable, and we will do our best to help you find your way in our beloved city.

About Saundra McPherson
We are long-time hosts and travelers, and we love to share our our favorite San Francisco and northern California secrets with our guests.
Why Saundra McPherson chose Buena Vista
The Castro/Buena Vista Park neighborhood is the geographic center and the very heart of San Francisco. We love its village character: urban hip meets old-style warm hospitality, beautifully maintained Victorians and gardens, shops, restaurants, public transit and cafes.
What makes this house unique
Our family home is graciously proportioned to accommodate large family dinners, with its large dine-in kitchen complete with Wolf stove & Subzero refrigerator, 100+ year old English oak dining room table seating 12, and intimate urban garden with patio and barbeque. The garden has been lovingly built over 16 years and features edible greens & herbs, trees and perennials. The atrium/sunroom connects one bedroom with the den, covered by a large skylight - a treat on a moonlit night. We love to entertain in the double living room around the old baby grand piano (my mother's from the 1920's), or read the paper on one of the buckskin sofas on a sunny morning. There are three parks within a 5-20 minute walk, and shopping is a 5 minute walk or (a favorite) Hayes Valley, a 15 minute walk.
