Both of the bedrooms have en-suite marble bathrooms, new queen-sized beds, generous closets and lots of storage space. One of the bedrooms has French doors with a balcony over-looking a lovely garden.

This is an ideal choice for families. There are two twin sized aero-beds and a porta-crib [with washable cover] for the little ones, as well as a queen-sized sofa bed in the living room. It is also perfect for two couples - no need to share a bathroom.

The flat is great for corporate short-stays and executive relocation, as well. It is also great for visiting scholars going to UCSF or USF, with easy public transportation access.

Why Juliette Kruse chose San Francisco

This flat was renovated to reflect our taste and attention to detail; a fun, but exhausting labor of love.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is close to all of the best of San Francisco -- parks, museums, beach, golf courses, fabulous views.

Visit the California Academy of Sciences and the de Young Museum and use them as a launching point for a walk through Golden Gate Park -- this is all within walking distance from the flat.

While at the west end of Golden Gate Park, stop in at the Beach Chalet for a beer, the view at sunset is incomparable. Check out the WPA murals covering the walls of the entryway.

Beautifully Appointed

  • 4 of 5

This property is absolutely beautiful. It is decorated very nice. Clean and spacious; well appointed.

The owner is easy to get ahold of and is available on site (upstairs).

I took away one star because there is not a lot of restaurants within close waking distance, otherwise, it would be 5 star. It is in a lovely neighborhood, however, close to the park and easy to get an Uber/Lyft. I would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding Visit

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom apartment was absolutely perfect for the 6 of us. Great location and easy to get to. We were only 20 min by Uber to Pier 39 which we spent most of our time. The apartment was as described, spotless and the kind of place you hope you get when you book your stay. The biggest asset is the owner Juliette. She was very quick in all her responses to questions and she is also very flexible. She allowed us to drop our bags at the house early because our flights came in early and she allowed us to stay late after checkout time because we had a 1030pm flight. It was so great to be able to relax in her apartment instead of having to stay at the airport for 10 hours waiting for our flight. I would give her 10 stars if I could. We had such an enjoyable stay in SF. Thank you Juliette for your personal touch that made a huge difference in our stay!!

Clean well appointed flat.

  • 3 of 5

We arrived on the Saturday evening for our five day stay. We were very excited to stay at the apartment seeing as we had been travelling through California coming up from L.A having stayed in five hotels along the way, this was our last stop. It is our first experience renting a property on VRBO. The property is very spacious .It has been recently renovated the bathrooms are stocked with everything that you need, hairdryer, shampoo, clean towels. The beds are very comfortable with fresh linens and soft pillows. There is a sofa bed in the living room which is quite comfortable for a child to sleep on, however the noise from the street is quiet loud. The kitchen is stocked with an abundance of dishes , pot and pans and there is even some basic necessities such as coffee, sugar , dry goods. I would give the overall cleanliness a Five on Five. Location wise it is close to Golden Gate Bridge Park, and a fifteen minute drive to most areas of San Francisco.

Parking is not easy to find on the street , but a block or two away so that was not an issue. After reading this review you maybe wondering why I only gave this flat a three star rating ? Well, after settling in on the Saturday night and finally enjoying the space of a flat and not a hotel we were woken up at 6.30 a.m with the sound of footsteps overhead of the owner and her dog, this went on for at least two hours, constant back and forth walking in the bedroom above us, the dog scraping the floor either to find a spot to sit down or running up and down the hallway, he is a large dog and therefore makes quite a bit of noise. The next day I met the owner Juliette , a very nice woman who asked us how everything was and I told her that everything is wonderful except that we were all woken up with the constant footsteps of her and the dog and would she be able to walk more quietly and perhaps not make the dog walk around the bedroom early in the morning.

She informed me that she had to remove the rugs because of her cat and therefore she cannot help the noise. I hoped however that she could be a bit quieter the next morning. The next morning we woken up again at 6:30 with constant walking for two hours and this continued everyday. Even if you are a heavy sleeper you would be woken up by the noise , after sightseeing everyday we were tired! It was very unfortunate, it ruined our experience. Note to the owner- please make an effort to keep the noise level down as guests are on vacation !

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My family could not be more impressed with our gracious host and her home. The residence was pristine and well appointed. Just one block north of Golden Gate Park, the residence provides easy walking access to all that the parks has to offer. Having access to a computer with internet access made planning trips and daily activities simple and convenient. And just as a testament to the host's generosity and attention to her guest needs, our host mailed a pair of gym shoes that we left behind to our residence. The shoes arrived at our house before we did. Thanks again Juliette.
