About George

I'am a 5th generation San Francisco native who has renovated and restored this classic SF Victorian Home to it's original glory. Pictures do not do justice it was built in 1875 and is one of the first homes in the Marina/Cow Hollow district. Come and enjoy it's the best!

George purchased this house in 2012

Why George chose San Francisco

I really love this home. It's just a great combination of San Francisco History,built in 1875, with the San Francisco of today. The photo is from the Marina which is a short walk from Scott Street. All that come here enjoy the location and history that this property has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Location, safety, views, great restaurants nightlife and shopping. Reviews by travelers confirm all of this.

Lovely place for a group!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed at this lovely VRBO for 3 days in March. We each had a sizeable bedroom, and there were lots of places for us to gather together. The living room was large enough for our group to sit and visit, and the dining room easily accommodated us all. Unfortunately the weather was too cool to sit outside, but the small garden looked like a great place to enjoy a drink. We had a wonderful time, and I would recommend this rental.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Place was awesome. Location was great. Restaurants and bars near there and bus lines next to it. 4 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath, had outdoor area. Only two small complaints was we had 3 couples and the shower hot water would run out quick, they need to spend 1500$ on a new larger or tankless water heater for the 3M$ rental house. And last thing parking in front of house is very small spot and we had large cargo van. But other than that pretty awesome. Not worth deducting stars. George was nice too.

Owner's Response: Thank you, for the nice review! Regarding your complaints, the hot water heater was replaced with a top quality unit only six months ago. Perhaps it need's some adjustment. Appreciate your feedback. In San Francisco, parking is a premium & fortunately, we can provide parking for our guest @ no additional charge. Occasionally, Larger Vehicles, like a 8 passenger van, can find it difficult to park in the space. However, any standard Suv or Car never have a difficult time parking parallel. Also, you do not need a car unless your planning on trips outside the city. Glad you enjoyed your stay please come again. Thank you, George Nicoud

Hidden gem in Cow Hollow

  • 5 of 5

George was very hospitable and approachable. He met us at the house to orient us and make sure we were comfortable. The space was clean, bright and beautiful. All rooms were comfortable and ensured a good night's sleep. Water was hot and towels were fresh. Wish we could have stayed longer! I will for sure try stay here again the next time im in San Fran.

Beautiful and Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days and 3 nights at George's beautiful "mansion". My family just fell in love with this lovely, spacious and extremely comfortable house. We loved the beautiful Holly tree in the backyard and all the lovely private and quiet space there. The family room was where we spent most of our time loving the comfortable couch and recliners. We had great breakfasts in the huge dining room and walked to some wonderful restaurants based on recommendations from George. We would definitely come back and recommend it to all our loved ones.
