The Neighborhood: Richmond District is one of San Francisco's most desirable and safe neighborhoods. It is filled with a mix of Edwardian and Victorian houses. It is a wonderful, lively place. We recommend hanging out at the Sunday morning farmer's market on Clement Street; walking through the so-called “New China Town”: Clement St. and Irving St.; eating out at wonderful restaurants at Geary Blvd, Clement St. and Balboa St.; walking to Golden Gate Park, the Presidio (Baker beach), Land’s End, the Ocean Beach (Cliff House), and many nearby attractions. Locals are friendly, approachable and laid back.

We had a really enjoyable week – incredible to think that what was once an imaginary landscape is now familiar to us!
Thanks for leaving such a catholic supply of books on the shelves – highly appreciated!
Thanks also to Dave for coming round to sort out a few minor issues… everything worked out perfectly
All in all a great experience. Best wishes to your family, greetings from
Douglass and family
PS Shalimar on Polk St is outstanding!! Best curry I have had, including Pakistan and Glasgow!
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!
The house is roomy and kid friendly, which I really enjoyed because I had grandkids with me. The location is great. Right by Golden Gate Park and in a quiet neighborhood versus staying by Fisherman's Wharf. Would rent this house again in a heartbeat!
Our family visited San Francisco for the Labor Day Holiday and to travel to Palo Alto for the Stanford vs Kansas State football game. There were five adults and a 9-month old. Lan and Dave's house was perfect for our large group. Lan provided all the baby essentials including stroller, high chair and pack-n-play. We used Uber to get around, including to and from Palo Alto and it was very reasonable and we never had to wait long for a pickup. Lan and Dave are wonderful hosts and I would highly recommend their property to others and would rent again. Also, Lan was very helpful to answer questions ahead of our visit.
With all promised amenities working well, plenty of local information provided, an eclectic book collection to sample and plenty of room provided this was exactly what we hoped for after reading the presentation and booking it. Truly a home away from home!
Very spacious property, nice location, and Lan was absolutely wonderful before and during the trip, offering suggestions or answering questions -- even though there was very little need for clarifications. Highly recommend.
Great place to stay with kids and explore the Golden Gate Park just a short walk and in summer the weather was good. After 6 weeks of travelling around USA we stayed here for our last four nights. We enjoyed being able to catch up on washing, cooking breakfast and relaxing in the evenings with all 5 of us in the main bedroom watching old movies on the big entertainment screen.
The owners were very accommodating and let us have a late check out for our midnight flight for a small fee.
