This large apartment has been completely updated yet retains many Victorian features from 1900 to ensure a pleasurable vacation. The apartment is centrally located, close to public transit, the Presidio National Park, Golden Gate Park, shopping, dining, many museums, beaches, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The upper apartment, which shares many of the same features as this apartment (except for a third bedroom) was recently featured on the TV show Sweet Retreats, which link is below.

We have lived in San Francisco since 1983 and love its diversity and excitement. I am a local attorney and own my 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 famiies in one and two unit buildings. It is extremely 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!

A great home in SF

Our journey in SF has been a huge success, and this place had a big part in it !
The house is beautiful and very American ;-) Everything is clean and modern, beds are comfortable. We appreciated the welcome pack from Malu&Phil, everything was perfect. The children were happy to borrow the bikes and we did appreciate the proximity with public bus lines (1, 28, 44…) to discover the city. One word : PERFECT !
Thank you M&P for all.

Perfection!

My husband and I booked this for when our daughter had her first baby. They live only 5 blocks from here and the location was perfect. Actually, everything about this rental is perfect. Malu is a most gracious host, welcoming us with balloons and pink roses to celebrate the birth of our granddaughter. The home is beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, and Malu was responsive to all of our questions. It is warm, welcoming and comfortable and the photos don't do it justice - it is even more beautiful and comfortable than can be shown in the photos.
My only hesitation in recommending this locale is that I want it all to myself! Seriously, I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends, family and any one who asks me.
Thank you Malu for helping to make our first visit with our granddaughter so easy and wonderful, we can't wait to come back!

Great place to stay!

We had a wonderful time staying in this apartment. It was clean and bright, tastefully furnished and comfortable for 3 adults. It was close to the bus stop to take us to the major sights in San Francisco and there were shops and restaurants a short walk away. We had no difficulty parking out the front and if you read the signs, there should be no problems.

Good place to stay in SFO

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
I stayed with my family (with a toddler) in early December for 5 nights. Overall, I found this place to be a wonderful unit to stay in. Interior decor is very thoughtfully designed and gave a positive feel. House looks great on a big street, easy to approach, close to many eateries. It has a full kitchen with all essential supplies, a nice master bedroom that is attached to a queen bedroom (with just a sliding door in between). Living room is charming with lots of books, DVDs, CDs overlooking the backyard lawns.

As for the cons (though I decided not to make them lose a star for this):

a) Parking is a nightmare on the street in the evenings. I literally searched around for more than an hour one evening before I found parking. Public transport is a 10-minute walk but not exactly very frequent or convenient.

b) Owners Malu & Phil are very nice people but unfortunately, they weren't accessible whenever I called on their mobiles for help. I hope they can improve their availability.

Overall, I would recommend this place though a bit on the expensive side.

Owner's Response: Dear Arun, We enjoyed having you and your family stay at our home, and are glad your overall stay was pleasant! We apologize for any inconvenience you had in contacting us. We are easily reached by email and texting, but less so by phonecalls. In the Home Binder in the living room we provide information to make it easier to park your car. However, based upon your comments we will also provide a helpful fact sheet at the front entry for people who don't use the Binder. Parking is usually not difficult within a block or two of the apartment, but sometimes people are not used to parking in an urban environment.
As to public transit, there are two bus lines at the end of the block, 2 minutes away, which information is also in the Home Binder.

Malu and Phil

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.
