Spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the use of this home. As a family of 5 with young kids, travelling across the country, what a relief it was to arrive at a nice home opposed to a cramped hotel room. We really enjoyed staying here, so much so it would be hard to visit SF again without the use of a house.

The kids had a great time here! We got to visit many fun places, Golden Gate Park, Pier 39, Chinatown, Exploratorium, and visited with family and friends.

The house provides plenty of room for play, meals, and hanging out. We even enjoyed the quality of the linens and towels. Thanks again!

A great location for a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great home base for our trip to San Francisco. It is located on a quiet street near Golden Gate park. From the house it was a short drive to the Fisherman's Wharf area, AT&T Park, the Presidio, Sausalito. and other areas of the city/area.

The house itself is very roomy and well-maintained with four bedrooms with plenty of closet/drawer space, two full baths (and a half bath), a full kitchen, a large, sunny living room, a big dining area and a laundry room. It was perfect for our family of five as we had plenty of room to spread out after long days of vacation togetherness! The short driveway was key in that we had an assured parking spot in front of the house.

Lan was an excellent host. She was right on sending us information on how to find and access the house, she provided lists of good neighborhood restaurants, shops and services and checked in with us throughout the trip to make sure all was well.

I would recommend this house and would book it again

Great to be together in the CITY!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone enjoyed our stay in the City. Having lived in San Francisco staying in a hotel would not have felt right. Being all together has always been important to this family. Our vacations have always a large beech house. Thanks for the use of your lovely home.

Fantastic Welcoming House in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very responsive- always texted or called when I had a question, and were very helpful.

The house is a much loved family home, in a fantastic location close to both Golden Gate Park and The Presidio. We could walk to restaurants and markets, playgrounds and even a public Disc Golf course.

The house description says 'family friendly'- and it was. We went with 2 couples and 2 toddlers. The owners had permanent baby gate mountings on the top and bottom stairs- all we had to do was slip in the gates. The kids were in heaven- there were lots of kids books on the shelves (books in every room!) .There was a play tent, a blackboard with chalk, as well as an electric keyboard at their height. For adults- the wifi worked great, and while there are TVs we never even tried them.

The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with every appliance, pot, pan and utensil you'd need.

Having the driveway available to park our rental car made a huge difference- we never had to look for parking.

Thank you for a terrific vacation.
