I've been living in San Francisco for 30 years and my partner is born and raised San Franciscan and we hope to make this your most memorable trip to San Francisco.

1906 film camera mounted on the front of a cable c: An astonishing blend of horses, wagons and cars - no street lights but plenty of jay walkers. Amazing how dressed up most of the pedestrians are. This is fascinating.

This film was 'lost' for many years. It was the first 35mm film ever. It was taken by camera mounted on the front of a cable car. The amount of automobiles is staggering for 1906. Absolutely amazing! The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the Embarcadero wharf is still there. (I'm also wondering ... how many 'street cleaning' people were employed to pick up after the horses? Talk about going green!)

Great historical film worth watching.

Notes:
I know places like Nob Hill Spa, for instance, where for an extra $35.00 Monday thru Thursday you can get a day pass to enjoy the indoor pool and if you reserve a 50 minute treatment with them they will waive the $35.00 fee. They have a great sundeck with a fantastic view as well. Or I know a brand new public indoor pool recently torn down and rebuilt brand new That costs $4.00 admission. As I mentioned earlier I have a list of street walking tours ranging from the macab to historic to stopping at every restaurant to sample their food. I'll take you to twin peaks, the highest place in San Francisco, for a birds eye view. We have over 100 restaurants in our neighborhood or I can arrange for a chef cook meals for you and leave them in the frig for you. We have two brand new museums in town one with a state of the art planetarium and one with tweeked, warped (you'll have to see it) skyscraper attached. Any way, we'll keep you busy.

Great location with helpful, friendly host!

  • 4 of 5

The location was great! Andrew was so helpful and personable. The passes for transportation within the city were invaluable. The bedrooms and bathroom were good sized, but the living area was a little smallish. The only thing I wish he could make better was the kitchen area.

Quaint, clean, great location!

Andrew was very good at communicating and very accommodating to us during our short stay! This property is located in the perfect spot within walking distance to the downtown Castro District.

He provided very thorough instruction and we felt at home during our stay.

We would definitely stay again!

San Francisco has both bay and ocean exposure. It's a city of hills and of course views. It also has fog; layering clothing is advised. We have a great public transit system with cable cars acquired from around the world and beautifully restored. We have many incredible National Parks less than one hour away and we have street fairs where artists sell their work all summer long. And with 24/7 concierge service if it can done in or around San Francisco, I can make it happen.

Other Activities: Street Tours including EatingTour, Vampire Tour, and a Castro Street Tour
