About the property

4 bedrooms 2 full bathrooms Sleeps 7

The Egger House is featured in the current e-book edition of 'RENTING PARADISE' as one of the top five family vacation rentals in S.F.. Enjoy a unique San Francisco experience. Located on a large, pesticide free, view parcel overlooking the breathtaking San Francisco skyline, you will find a country home in the city. With room to roam, privacy, and outdoor areas to entertain and relax, you will discover a new San Francisco.

The Egger House was originally built in 1909 on North Bernal Heights by the family, immigrants from South Tyrol (Northern Italy). The historical San Francisco Farm House (location of the last cow on Bernal Hill) remains in the Egger Family Trust. The setting offers a view that spans from bridge to bridge, Golden Gate to SF Bay Bridge, with both daytime and night sights that are awe inspiring.

We invite you to experience a stay at the Egger House. It will give you a memorable San Francisco visit that few homes in the city can offer.

Equally as distinctive is the open feeling surrounding the home. Located above the neighborhood on a long, private driveway you leave the traffic and parking woes of the city behind. Your stay at the Egger House will allow you to be minutes from all of San Francisco's attractions and yet unwind in this serene and enchanting home.

The NON-SMOKING home, with views from every window, offers four bedrooms and two baths. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed and is conveniently located to the large bathroom with shower.

Upstairs you will find three bedrooms. The first bedroom has a single bed, and the second bedroom has a queen bed and offers you the sights of the city including the tops of the Golden Gate Bridge towers, the gilded dome of San Francisco City Hall and Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County. The spacious master bedroom, including California king bed, and allows you to enjoy romantic nighttime views of downtown S.F.. The upstairs bathroom has a bathtub. The 2 sundecks offer a panorama you seldom see.

SBC DSL Pro, including wireless, internet service is provided.

The kitchen is a connoisseur's delight. Outfitted with a new Viking Professional stove and oven, cooking will be a pleasure and eating your meals in the dining room with a view like no other will make the evening one you will savor. The kitchen and dining area are equipped to serve your entertaining needs. The staples for cooking are already in the kitchen, so you only need to bring the entrée.

The gardens give you a wonderful San Francisco experience. Located on the North Slope of Bernal Heights, also known as the top of the Banana Belt, the home experiences warmer than normal weather and gives you the opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of its unique surroundings. Outdoor entertaining in this house is special with all the open space around the home and plenty of room to wander. A gas barbecue is provided for your grilling needs.

Fun time!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this rental home with my 2 sisters and our cousin during our yearly "sisters vacation". It surpassed all expectations! Comfortable home in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Property borders the Bernal Heights Park for easy access to great hiking!

Owners couldn't have been nicer!

Beautifully stocked kitchen with fresh breads and fruits plus a well stocked refrigerator. Lovely!!!

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Farm House was as represented. I have to admit I was a little hesitant when we first drove up because this is an older home. However the longer we stayed, the better it got. This is a very comfortable residence with skyline views from the laundry room, both bathrooms, and the dining area. Easy parking. Great patio area with outdoor seating. The owners were nice and accommodating. They also gave us lots of local tips. The house was well-stock with goodies to get us through the first few days as advertised. If you are looking for a place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Farm House fits the bill. I would definitely stay here again, and I would recommend this property to a friend. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Even though our stay was back in October, every time I think or see pictures of this wonderful house it brings back such warm memories. We had 7 people on our visit and we never felt crowded or on top of each other. The first day Frank called to see that we arrived safely and inquire if we had any problems or questions and was always a phone call away to assist in any way. One of my cousins left his jacket after we departed and Frank promptly returned my call and made arrangements for us to pick it up before we left for the airport. The goodies left for us upon arrival were beyond exceptional and the photos do not do justice to location, which sits on top of a large hill overlooking the city. I would highly recommend this place (unless I want to rent that week :)!! for anyone looking for a wonderful warm home away from the tourist scene that provides a breathtaking view of the city by the bay! Thank you so much Frank and Ronita for a truly wonderful and unforgettable experience!

Wonderful place to stay - a true home from home!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just completed a road trip around California, and we stayed at this gorgeous house for 3 nights only, and I wish we had had the time to stay longer (the owner did warn me that 3 nights was not long enough). We not only loved San Fran, but also loved this property - it was immaculately presented, with so many added extras and personal touches from the very thoughtful owners. The house and the furnishings are beautiful, the house is clean and very quaint (my mother wanted to move in!!), and the view from the dining room was absolutely amazing - we spent all our evenings here, watching the sky line constantly change. I would recommend this lovely house, and we would definately return should we return to San Franciso!!!

Owner's Response: These are the kind of comments typically left in our Guest Book. Folks love the place. We always try not to oversell our home. Our guests are never disappointed and quite often use the word "wow" when they arrive. The views are to die for. Frank and Ronita

The North Slope of Bernal Heights neighborhood is conveniently located within walking distance from the home. Restaurants and grocery stores are nearby. The neighborhood has a distinct personality, as do all San Francisco neighborhoods, and allows you to experience San Francisco from the natives' perspective.

Various ethnic and American restaurants are close by, that give you dining experiences that many come to the city to explore. Public transportation is at the edge of the property, which will take you to any location in the city.

Other Activities: Saturday Farmers Market, Sunday Flea Market
