About Sharon

We are San Francisco natives who love our city! Our neighborhood is beautiful, vibrant, sunny, interesting and central to the whole city, and we couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Come and enjoy this beautiful home to enhance your experience of this amazing city!

Why Sharon chose San Francisco

We chose this neighborhood as it is in the center of SF. It is close to everything, has great vitality, and is almost always sunny.The Castro has some of the best restaurants and shopping in the city, all within a few blocks of the house. We are two minute walk from a huge transportation hub, and we are two subway stops from Moscone center.

What makes this house unique

This is a great house for large families or for groups of colleagues. Our third floor recreation room is two flights up from the kitchen/ living room area, allowing adults to enjoy some private socializing while the kids have a great time upstairs playing ping-pong or video games on our 55 inch flat screen TV. The main floor is ideal for large family meals, enjoying each other while a warm fire is going in the fireplace.

Great accommodation for business group

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our business trip - we had a team of 5 visiting San Francisco to attend a conference at Moscone Convention Center. The home was perfectly appointed, clean and very spacious - everyone had a bedroom each and plenty of bathrooms. We were able to easily get to/from Moscone with taxis/uber in ~10-15 minutes.

Thank you very much for having us - it was perfect for our needs - it suited our budget, was clean and safe, in a fantastic neighbourhood for our business trip during what must be one of the busiest times in the year in the Bay Area!

This amazing home is perfect. Feels homey, comfortable, clean couldn't say enough. Franco (owner) made our experience smooth. This home is great for both a city experience and a little quiet time . The house is located on a dead end street making the traffic minimal but yet close enough to stores, is great for any family.We stayed at the condo with 5 adults and 3 kids that fit good! The location is perfect and close to everything. The condo is furniture and decorated in a lovely and cozy way, we felt like home instantly! The owner was also very helpful about all our questions. Would definitely recommend this place to a family and would love to stay there again in near future.

Fantastic Home - Fantastic Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this home and our experience with Sharon (the owner). The home was perfect for our family (7 adults - 2 children). The layout of the home is designed for large groups. The decorating and luxury touches were impeccable. This was our first experience with VRBO, and needless to say "we are fans". I would recommend this home to anyone thinking of staying in the San Francisco area.

Amazing home! Best place I've stayed in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

This amazing home that is perfect. It's decorated impeccably, feels luxurious yet homey, it's ideal. I didn't want to leave.

The beds are comfortable. The location is perfect! I have lived in San Francisco for 20+ years - this is great for both a city experience and a little quiet time at the home. The house is located on a dead end street making the traffic minimal.

The layout of the house is perfect. My family had children in the group and the kids were able to escape to the upper rooms and play in the evening while the adults visited.

Great place! I will recommend to any of my friends coming to town.

A perfect accommodation in a spectacular city

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning of my communication with the owner for a place to stay for a week in San Francisco, Sharon was exceptionally pleasant, accessible, and helpful. Our group was a large one: five grandparents, four children, and five grandchildren, and while we have vacationed together twice before, this was the first time we were all to share one home. During the contract process, she reassured me that, in the event of a catastrophe preventing our travel (from Tennessee, Georgia, and Chicago), she could probably rent the property to someone else, given that we were scheduled to be there during a busy holiday week. Fortunately, that did not happen. From the moment we walked into the roomy, immaculate, beautifully restored home, we knew that we had found the ideal space. The children we so enchanted with the third floor playroom/sleep area, with ping pong table, toys (including leggos), games, a TV, and DVDs, that we sometimes had difficulty persuading them that there was a world of fun and interest awaiting them in the city. All the adults had lovely bedrooms and bathrooms and we spent early morning and evening hours in the spacious living/dining/kitchen area looking out at the spectacular garden patio. Moreover, the kitchen was well equipped, and Sharon provided many of the necessary staples/condiments in the kitchen in addition to bathroom and laundry supplies. Evening baths were a treat for the grandchildren in the jacuzzi. We decided not to rent cars during the time we were there and made good use of the buses, subways, and occasional taxis, and we were able to walk to shops, restaurants, and a grocery store. Sharon even recommended an excellent sitter for an adults only dinner out. What did we enjoy most about our stay? Everything! We would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lovely retreat in a quiet neighborhood before and after experiencing the wonders of San Francisco, and we hope to return.

If you have always hoped to find a holiday home that blissfully mixes comfort, beauty and practicality, THIS home is the place for you! Our brood, which included nearly half a dozen children, couldn't have been more charmed. The location on a small side street just steps away from a grocery, clever shops, public transportation and a popular park just up the hill was ideal. When we weren't out on adventures, the place just nudged us to spread out over the 3 stories and find a spot to read, chat, or play games. The playroom is a gem with its space, sunlight, and inviting all of San Francisco that is what I wanted to take home as my souvenir!

The owner was so very gracious and helpful. I am afraid we have been spoiled and will be disappointed with our next holiday rental!

We are located in the geographic center of San Francisco, in a neighborhood that is almost always sunny. SF can be foggy and cold in the summer, but not at our house! We are on a quiet dead end street, but we are 3 blocks from great restaurants, cafes, gourmet grocery stores and shops. We are also 3 blocks from public transit that takes you all over the city. We are the perfect home base for a relaxing, comfortable, wonderful vacation.
