About Owner

As California natives and long-time SF residents, we love all that the city and region has to offer. As our two daughters have gotten older, they've been bitten by the travel bug so we try to see as much as the world as possible, often using Home Away as well. While in SF, we explore alot and can offer lots of ideas for excursions in and around the area...please don't hesitate to ask.

Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why Owner chose Marina District

The Marina district has it all; close to recreational activities, restaurants, and services. We had long coveted Avila street as it's one of the only blocks in the Marina that's exclusively single-family homes. Great neighbors, close to the action but quiet and peaceful. The house is taller and wider than most, creating functionality that other homes don't have.

Beautiful home, great location, and excellent host

  • 5 of 5

It felt like we were at our own home. We spend the week between Christmas and New Years in this lovely home. I have to say that it's more lovely and charming than the pictures imply. Everything was ready and welcoming. We stayed with my parents and our four children, teens to mid-twenties. All were comfortable, plenty of beds, space, and hot showers.

The weather was fairly chilly and this 1925 house can only get so warm, so we found it a bit chilly in some places of the house at times, even with the heat on, but the beds have great comforters; and we actually kind of liked it.

The host's preparation was very thorough and organized, making it easy for what we needed in the house and the neighborhood for our stay. He was available by phone or email, and very responsive, though we didn't really need anything. We loved the great restaurants he recommended in the neighborhood, and he was very easy to work with leaving us with plenty of privacy.

The location couldn't be better, a few blocks to walk to Chestnut full of shops, restaurants and grocer and a few blocks from the waterfront. The neighborhood is quiet and charming. We took several walks in the evenings and started our days with a short run to the Golden Gate Bridge.

We didn't really watch TV, but the kids really enjoyed the Wii, and spent half our evenings out and half cooking at home and hanging out by the fire. It was the perfect place for a family get together. We would love to stay again! -- thanks Kipp and family!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Terri. We appreciate the remarks and couldn't have asked for better guests! You're welcome back anytime. Regarding the heating, while the house has a modern furnace, there were record lows during your stay and the downstairs can get chilly in those rare situations. The property has a large rotating space heater for those extra cold nights, which I wish I would have remembered to tell you about but glad you found all the extra, cozy Potterny Barn blankets.

Great Family Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

With 5 children between the ages 1-7 and 6 adults this was an amazing house that had everything we needed to be completely comfortable. The location was just steps away from the bay, awesome restaurants and great shopping on Chestnut street. The family room and trampoline kept the kids entertained for hours! The owners offered tons of games, movies and a great arts and crafts closet. Everybody in our large group had an awesome New Year's at this house. Those who wanted to go out on New Year's Eve had a great time knowing the kids were in a safe quiet environment that was fun with hours of entertainment!

Beautiful House in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked in to this beautifully decorated, well maintained house, we felt right at home and safe. This house has everything you could wish for to suit a large family. We spent a week here with our three children aged 9, 15 and 17. The kitchen is fully-equipped, the bedrooms are all large and very comfortable. All the rooms are spacious and well designed. There is an upstairs sitting room, perfect for quiet times and a downstairs playroom with lots of games and things to keep the children entertained. The garden is small and safe for young children.

The house also had fast Wifi, which was really important to us, and lots of TV channels for the evenings.

It was ideally located to explore this fabulous and diverse city. Avila Street is very quiet and peaceful, but from the house, its a 5 minute walk to Chestnut Street with all its interesting shops and plenty of restaurants (and a small supermarket). There is a larger supermarket just a few blocks away.

We rented a car from day 1 (there is easy parking in front of the house) which, although not necessary, was really useful to get around the city and further afield (such as Muir Woods - with the Giant Redwoods!). Alcatraz was also excellent - but you definitely HAVE to book in advance. The whole city was fantastic with lots to do, and there is plenty of ways of getting about if you don't have a car as the city isn't too massive and sprawling and the public transport system seems pretty good!

Having searched extensively for the right property in San Francisco, when we next visit, there is nowhere else we would want to stay!! Thank you so much to the owner for all your help and great suggestions before and during our stay.
