About Helen Lee

I am a school teacher, easy going, friendly, and like to meet new friends.

Helen Lee purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Helen Lee chose Richmond District

I grew up on this block and my parents' house was just across the street. And over the years I have come to realize that this block is probably the most convenient and centrally located spot in the entire city. Property on this block rarely becomes available and when this was available, we bought it.

What makes this apartment unique

This unit has a very large gourmet kitchen with all the utensils. The large professional kitchen with granite counter-top is great for serious cooking . It's a very quiet and safe neighborhood where everything we need is close by. It's a family neighborhood and on Sundays and holidays Golden Gate Park is closed to auto traffic and lots of spontaneous and terrific activities are going on in the Park, which is just two blocks away. There is also a mini park just one block away safely behind the police station. You will always feel relaxed staying at this property.

Fantastic flat in SF

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and three girls stayed here and LOVED IT. The owners are really nice and they will help in any way. You are centrally located here, it is remarkably quiet for the location. The flat has plenty of room, and its real San Francisco, on a pretty street that is safe. There is a 24/7 Safeway right down the block. Would totally stay here again.

Cozy, Convenient and Relaxed!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here while visiting friends in the neighborhood. The location is extremely convenient, it is two blocks away from Golden Gate Park and Geary Blvd. which takes you straight into downtown. Golden Gate Bridge is within less than 10 minutes drive. The neighborhood is safe and quiet at night. Everything in the house was clean, neat and cozy, just as listed on vrbo. Blanket, sheets, towels,... got all the basic stuff! I personally love the kitchen while the living-room is comfortable and makes you feel relaxed. Helen was there to greet us when we arrived and departed. She checked that we have everything we needed. I highly recommend this place.

Great Family Spring Break visit

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit in SF over our spring break with our two high school girls. Helen was a pleasure. More than helpful before we arrived and on site. Only three blocks away from Golden Gate Park - went running there every morning...plenty of space to explore. This was a good base of operations for our visit...we did the typical tourist activities. Usually at night we would find a restaurant close to our home and then collapse to rest up for another day! We would stay there again.

Wonderful stay in a cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family (wife & 5 year old daughter) for 2 weeks. This was the first time we used VRBO and it was one of the best travel experiences we've ever had. The property is accurately described, no surprises. The location is great, you can reach downtown, Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Bridge, practically everything by public transport. 24/7 Safeway is just one block away, really practical if you need anything during your stay. There are multiple choices to go out for nice food in the area. The place was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Helen & Gladstone made everything and even more to ensure our stay was perfect – THANK YOU. We felt like home during the entire stay. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone & I would rent the property next time without a doubt.

Beats A Hotel

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed her while visiting family in the neighborhood. It was a great location and the house was very comfortable. Everything we needed was close at hand, as we did not have a car. The Lee's will spoil you rotten and have a cozy set up for thier visitors. We appreciated the washer and dryer as it allowed for us to pack fewer clothes. We caught the bus to Alcatraz and a Giants game. (We did take a cab back for about $20.00 only because wanting to beat the crowds). There are plenty of businesses in the area and enjoyed the Golden Gate Park down the street. Do not hesitate to stay here if reading this option.

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5

We have not used VRBO before but found that our first experience was great. For the same price as a local hotel, our family of four had this great two-bedroom apartment with kitchen and laundry facilities and easy access to all the sights of San Francisco. The place was clean and comfortable and we had careful attention from the owner to make sure our stay was successful. She even had maps and reference books of San Francisco to use while we stayed. The only difficulty we had was in parking on the street, but we were able to find places within a block or two. The owner did reserve a spot right in front so we could unload luggage when we first arrived. I'd recommend this place to anyone.
