Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

This place was incredible. Very clean and located in a safe and family friendly neighborhood. The owner was very accommodating ensuring we had a street parking permit as well as purchasing a crib for my child so that we didn't have to pack one. Close to grocery stores and local restaurants. Just a half a block away from a great park and neat view of the bay (including Alcatraz). The homes surrounding this property are impressive. Would stay here over and over again. The only limiting thing we found was it was hard to cook a full meal given the limited number of pots/pans, but we ended up not cooking as much as we had planned anyway due to exhaustion after a full day of activities.

Would not call this "gorgeous"

  • 2 of 5

The title of this property is misleading - it may have been a gorgeous victorian in its day, but that has nothing to do with describing the VRBO rental. While the outside picture of this house looks impressive, the entrance thru a narrow side alleyway leads to a NOT "gorgeous" flat at the back of the house. Inside this was a very basic, drab and outdated apartment that was nothing special. The beds were very soft (dipped into the middle). One of our family of 5 slept on the futon/sofa which was so uncomfortable she ended up not staying there the second night of our visit, because of a terrible night sleep. We didn't attempt any cooking there. Positives were easy street parking, quiet neighborhood, plenty of towels, clean enough. Tanya was very responsive in answering questions and making the arrangements. Our verdict is that we would not stay here again and compared to other VRBO rentals we have enjoyed, we rate this at the low end of the scale.

Owner's Response: This is the first for me - but there is a first for everything. In all my years of renting the place nobody disagree that the building is beautiful. of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We do have to paint it often due to the proximity to the ocean and will be in fact doing it shortly. The entrance to the apartment is typical for the San Francisco houses - side entrance between the buildings. I agree, the breezeway is not gorgeous, but this is how the entrance works. First of all, we advertise the place as "sleeps 4", not 5. We state that we do not provide sleeping accommodations for extra people. These people showed up a 5, so I am glad that the 5th person left - we do not expect 5 adults. The sofa bed - though we do not advertise it for an extra person - is actually comfortable. It has the real mattress unlike most sofa beds. It is a new design, and they probably did not pull it correctly. Second, we do not advertise the apartment s 'something special". As a matter of fact, the price reflect it, It is a bargain for Pacific Heights. When we will choose to upgrade the finishes and appliances - we will raise the prices. Lastly. I had a bad feeling about these guests, but could not figure out how not to rent to them. Wish I followed my instincts.

  • 5 of 5

great apt for a quiet getaway. Tanya was very considerate and accommodating. Last time I visited sf I stayed by coit tower in an area that has a very high walking score but Tanyas location beats it. This is probably the best location for you if you want to avoid the touristy junk and walk to great restaurants or bars or just relax with your dog in the park while looking out on one of the great cities of the world. Neighborhood locals seem to be very polite which I appreciate. Thank you Tanya for keeping it simple.

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this. It is a home away from home, clean, comfortable, well equipped and in a safe neighbourhood. With a map and a good pair of reading glasses you can get to anywhere in S.F. on the buses. The air vent in the bedroom was noisy, but didn't cut in when we turned the aircon down a bit. The owners obviously care about their guests!

Apartment in great area

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to the owner for supplying this wonderful property. We stayed for 4 nights and it was wonderfully located in SF. Our family of 5 (3 kids) had no problems here...ample bedding, kitchen, big bathroom and free wifi. Good location as your base for any SF stay. We utilised ride share services (uber/lyft) to get around but the bus (muni) is right along the street too. There is a fantastic park (Alta Plaza Park) nearby this block which has AMAZING city views, we spent our first sunny afternoon at this lagging upon arrival from Australia. We walked down to the Marina District and Presidio areas (both are really not that far...downhill...but we uber'ed back though), also walking access to Filmore Street shopping and found Chestnut Street which also provided great "local" shopping and dining options. This place really helped our SF stay be much more "homely" than any hotel in the tourist areas could ever hope to provide. If we ever travel back this way, we'll be looking to stay here again. Thanks so much.

Great and quiet location for SF Visit

  • 4 of 5

Located in primarily a residential neighborhood, we found the apartment to be ideal for our visit. Multiple bus lines pass the property, so exploring on a transit pass was perfect. Whenever needed, many Uber cars were within two minutes. The apartment is well lit and spacious. It was cool, and we did find that the heat return in the first bedroom was quite loud. Towels were plentiful and beds were comfortable, although the bedding itself could be improved. We really didn't use the kitchen except for coffee, but it is spacious and functional.

My wife's main concern was that there is a connecting door in the kitchen from the main house. It locks from the house side, but not the apartment side. Probably should be the other way around. The door was open at 7am on our departure day. A little disconcerting.

Tanya was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive.
