We have lived in San Francisco since 1983 and love its diversity and excitement. I am a local attorney with my own firm. My wife Malu and I love raising our 2 children here in this wonderful city. We live across the street from this vacation property. We are offering it at VRBO for the first time.

Malu Soderquist purchased this apartment in 1997

This is a great neighborhood, mostly consisting of families in one and two unit buildings. It is very quiet at night, remarkable for being in the center of a vibrant city, where the bars and restaurants are only a 5 minute walk away.

This is a pretty home, with some lovely built ins and details. Constructed in 1908, just a few years after the 1906 earthquake, it sits on what was once sand dunes stretching down to Ocean Beach, 3 miles away. A few hundred feet away is a marker showing the spot in 1776 where the first Spaniards camped when they first came to San Francisco to establish Mission Dolores. In this relatively small city of 700,000 there is a world class ballet, symphony and theater. Exhilarating hiking and biking trails surround the Bay, and there is access to every sport and leisure activity. The highly rated restaurants vie with the lesser known but exciting eateries. We love our city and hope you will too!

FANTASTIC STAY IN A TERRIFIC APARTMENT.

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic stay in a beautiful apartment. Spotlessly clean with lovely period features, and very well appointed, with all furnishings, electrical goods, etc in perfect condition.
We are a family of 5, kids aged 18, 16, and 13, and this apartment was perfect for us. Comfortably accommodated us all. Location was perfect for strolling to Golden Gate Park, the Bridge and beaches, and the Presidio. Muni Bus Stops are only half a block away, and the Number 1 Bus stops every few minutes to takes you to the Embarcadero and City Centre in 25 minutes or so.
Malu, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with, very prompt and courteous in replying to our questions.
Malu - Many thanks for the lovely bottle of wine and locally sourced cookies on arrival. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this beautifully appointed, thoughtfully equipped apartment. Furnishings are both lovely and very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The parking pass made our life easy with no worrying about moving car every day. We would love to return sometime! Thank you, Malu!

NICE HOUSE BUT FAR FROM CITY AND LACKING AMMENITIES AND NOT CHILD FRIENDLY

  • 2 of 5
The property is very nice but too very far from the heart of the city. The apartment was not stocked with basics; toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, no extra blankets or pillows. Also, not a kid friendly, we were a family of 5 (4 children) and apartment is above someone else and received a complaint that we woke up to early and caused noise above the neighbors. It's impossible for a family of 5 to not have any noise above any apartment even when not wearing shoes in the apartment. San francisco a great city to visit but not the Richmond area.

Owner's Response: Steve, we are glad you found the house very nice, and are surprised you did not locate the extra toilet paper, paper towels etc., which are located in the cabinet to the left of the washer/dryer. Also, we talked with you a few times during your stay, and you never mentioned you could not find the extra items. We're sorry you did not like the Richmond District; many people enjoy being near the parks and museums, beaches and Golden Gate Bridge, and the restaurants in the neighborhood. When we spoke, you told us that you had been leaving at 5 in the morning for day trips to Santa Cruz and Monterey, which are 2-3 hours away by car. We do not recommend staying in San Francisco if you are planning to spend most of your time in Santa Cruz.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
What a marvelous time! Everything about this beautiful home is just as shown. The parking pass was a huge treat--we found parking close by and didn't need to worry about moving our car regularly. The notebook with information about the neighborhood was extremely helpful. Being 1/2 block from the bus and within walking distance of both Golden Gate Park and The Presidio was wonderful. All 6 of us (mom, dad, 4 children ages 21, 19, 9, and 9) enjoyed every moment of our stay. Virtually everything we needed for our stay was already there--just add some groceries. The lovely welcome gift and note were a pleasant suprise and enjoyed by all. We would return in a heartbeat!

IDEAL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We decided to try San Fran for our couples long weekend trip and could not have found a better place to stay. While it is a bit off the beaten path if you want to spend all of your time in the downtown/bay area of San Fran, we could not have been happier with the location. You are right by Presidio Park which had great trails for running as well as easy access to the Golden Gate Bridge. The neighborhood had an ample amount of restaurants and bars, as well as a convenient grocery store to stock the fridge with food. All of the furnishings were topnotch and the owners were quick to respond to any questions we had both before and while we were staying there. There was plenty of room for all three couples and we thoroughly enjoyed using the dining room for board games and drinks after each day of touring the city. It is about a 25 minute bus ride to the bay area but the apartment is located directly off a bus line that will take you there without having to make any transfers. Our only complaint at the end of our stay was that they did not have the movie "The Rock" in the dvd collection (anyone who tours Alcatraz while visiting will likely have the same urge we did to see Nic Cage hunting for VX gas warheads). Other than that, everything about the apartment is first-rate. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to San Fran.

P.S. the main bathroom is even cooler than it looks in the pictures.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
You could not ask for more! Every detail is taken care of from kitchen, to bathroom, to bedroom! The kitchen is well stocked and all updated. The bathrooms have great towels, a hair dryer,even shampoo and conditioner. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious! Although it was just my husband and me the place would be great for several couples or a family.
The neighborhood was great, super safe and so much to explore. We walked to many restaurants and to a beach! we took the bus to other areas and found it easy. Cabs were easy too!
The owners were easy to work with and were ready to help if we needed, but really there was nothing to need! It was a perfect long weekend! We can't wait to go back!

We are located within 2 minutes of The Presidio National Park, which includes free tennis courts, basketball and picnicking, and the gorgeous Presidio Golf Course (and driving range) a 10 minute walk from the vacation home. We are also a 20 minute walk, or 5 minute car ride from Golden Gate Park, which has the internationally renowned Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Art Museum, Japanease Tea Garden and Botanical Garden, together with an array of musical concert arenas, sports fields and walking areas. We are a 3 minute walk from San Francisco's 'Little Chinatown' on Clement Street, with its numerous restaurants of every nationality, and eclectic book stores, pastry shops and cafes. We are 2 minutes from the California 1 bus line which is connected to every part of the city by public transit. It is a lovely 25 minute walk down Lake Street to Baker Beach, adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge, with its view of San Francisco and the Pacific Ocean, and where you can occasionally see whales, seals and dolphins.
