Great place to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 walked into the place and felt comfortable from the get go. The place is very clean and organized. Roy and Mary have accommodated this place for adults with kids. They have a few toys and coloring books that can keep kids entertained. We look forward to renting The Nest in the future.

family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for your hospitality. We had a great time and your home was located conveniently to all of the things we wanted to see. It was a relaxing and cozy place to return to after long days of walking and site seeing.

Perfect location, nice/accommodating renters

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in San Francisco was made complete by finding this beautiful home in the perfect location. My father, 2 granddaughters and I stayed at the Nest from March 12th-16th 2015. We did not arrive into SF until 11:35pm which meant we weren't able to get to the property until 12:45am, Roy was more than accommodating to allow us to arrive at that time which saved us from having to move from a hotel to the house the next day. This property is located on a nice quiet dead in with easy access to everything in the city, local transportation and free parking which is hard to find in SF. It is a small place however it was perfect for the four of us to stay and it was nice to have the deck in the back to entertain friends/family that we have in SF. I would recommend this property to anyone of any age traveling to SF.

If you like the city stay in it but if you like quiet mornings drinking some coffee and cocoa on a patio or eating bacon and eggs and seeing a beautiful view....this is the place.....words do not describe don't have a property next to you on the have a beautiful view of the trees that are unexplainable....the patio is alot more roomy then what is shown on the pictures.....the mstr bedroom is cozy...the couch is, utensils , coffee maker is a keirug, plenty of coffee a place to park a small, medium maybe a full size Kia optima or small suv...giant 4x4 trucks are just to big I think...note: you should consider your car size rental and enquire if it will fit. The owners are the nicest people ever and very helpful....everything is very close or 10 to 15 minutes's not because it's far it's because there's allot of traffic light's everywhere...
