About Van and Jeri

We are an empty nester couple who have lived in Cole Valley for 25+ years. Currently, Zeke( the Orange Dog) resides with us and is a friend to all. The building is a 4 unit building though only Orange Dog Manor is a short term rental.

We have entertained and befriended my people from around the world in 14 years of using the studio as a vacation location.

A wonderful space

  • 5 of 5

When driving up, my friend looked at me and said "It's the most gorgeous street in San Francisco". The hosts were marvelous. They couldn't have been any nicer, and the dog - oh the dog. :) It was so sweet to have her push open the door with her nose in the mornings and come exploring in. The view off the back porch is gorgeous, and the house is convenient to several mass transit lines.

In short, a perfect place for a brief stay.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Van and Jeri's Orange Dog Manor for 4 months. It was a lovely experience! Van and Jeri were very friendly and helpful during my entire stay. The studio is small (probably a bit too cozy for two for several months, but great for a couple during a shorter stay than I had or for a single person for a longer stay) but lovely. I appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and cooked several nights a week. The bed was comfortable and stocked with brand new pillows and plenty of fresh bedding. The location is perfect- a beautiful, quiet street right near Golden Gate park, UCSF, Inner Sunset farmer's market on Sundays, Upper Haight, and all sorts of public transit access around the city. All in all I would definitely recommend ODM for a stay.

A Small Gem!

  • 3 of 5

Van & Jeri were charming and very helpful! Maggie( the dog) was shared with us and fun! Comfortable bed and lovely linens. Good location with great public transportation, which is a must since City parking is difficult. A couple of wall hanging bedside tables might be helpful. Tried most of the Cole Valley restaurants and all were good.

Quiet and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

The air mattress was very comfy and it was always fun to lay in the bed and watch tv. We really had fun cooking in the kitchen every morning. Lovely neighborhood. Need new pillows. Thanks for everything!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

All of us loved staying in your studio apartment. The location was so easy to travel from on Muni. We loved walking around the neighborhood and looking at the elaborate Victorian houses. It was so nice to have a small kitchen to prepare meals if we didn't want to eat out. We would love to come back sometime.

great room and great location

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my visit and look forward to visiting again in the future. It's a great neighborhood, with good public transportation and many restaurants to have a good meal within walking distance. The room was very comfortable and I especially enjoyed being able to cook and enjoy a meal in my room if I chose to. You will find the neighborhood is very quiet and lovely to walk around in and the Harts were the best of hosts while leaving you to your own devices.
