Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

*30 Night Minimum*

Built in 1885, this dazzling home shows its original San Francisco charm. Newly refurbished and remodeled, you will be able to experience how the wealthy lived after the 1849 gold rush while enjoying modern day amenities. The visual history of the home has baroque details including stained glass windows, elegant molding, and original ornate wood trim and paneling.

After going up the 10 steps to the entry way, you are greeted by the elegant parlor with decorative fireplace, a lovely room to sit by the window and unwind after a day in San Francisco. Adjacent to the parlor is the formal dining room, perfect for enjoying a home cooked meal made in the remodeled kitchen.

The bright, brand new kitchen is outfitted with new stainless steel appliances and a gas range. The kitchen island is largely spaced for additional seating. The kitchen is stocked with essential cookware and dishware, including a coffee maker and tea kettle. Off the kitchen is the upper level deck overseeing the private patio. On the deck is a bistro set perfect for enjoying your morning coffee.

Across the parlor on the main level is the first bedroom with a brand new full size bed. Next to the bedroom is a newly remodeled full bathroom with standing shower and ornate sink.

Down the stairs from the main level is the lower level family room, master bedroom and master bathroom. The family room is perfect for relaxing and gathering for a movie night. The brand new flat screen TV has basic cable and Apple TV, where you can access your Netflix and Hulu accounts. The living room love seat also has a twin pullout mattress to accommodate a fifth guest comfortably. There is also a luxury air bed to accommodate a sixth guest comfortably.

Off the family room is the master bedroom with a brand new king size bed with a decorative fireplace. Next to the master bedroom is the master bathroom. The newly remodeled master bathroom has a double sink vanity and shower tub combo.

Lower level also has a washer and dryer for guest use.

Off the family room are french doors that lead to the quiet and private patio. Enjoy the outdoor space by relaxing on the porch swing.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house which has been recently renovated. Street parking was very easy to find. Though technically located in the bustling Castro neighborhood, the house is situated on a quiet street. We liked everything about the house but the bathrooms and kitchen stand out. Keyless entry was a plus. We would stay here again in a minute.

Very comfortable - enjoyed it all!

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. We found the home to be very well appointed. We found everything we needed to accommodate our family, although we never did locate a toaster- an essential part to the great breakfasts we prepared during our week stay. We would definitely like to spend another family vacation in this beautiful home. We have passed the info about the Airbnb on to our friends that are planning vacations to SF.

Excellent, excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just wow! This home is so exquisite! Stayed here during our trip to California. When we entered, we were overwhelmed by the charming details! It was very neat to stay in such a classic San Francisco home. Everything was so clean and nicely prepared for us. They even had water bottles in the refrigerator for us. We are planning to come back in the fall and will absolutely be staying here again, thanks for the fantastic stay!
