The house was immaculate and beautiful! Eric and Mark were so easy to speak with and their concierge, Rob, was most helpful and kind. The neighborhood was vibrant, with several restaurants where we enjoyed delectable meals. There were a number of shops to explore up and down Castro St. as well and the MUNI station wasn't far at all. In all, a most delightful and serendipitous find for two retired nurses and their husbands!

Owner's Response: Loyalty and her group treated our home with great respect and care. She was easy to communicate with, and they left our house in perfect condition. We would welcome them back anytime! Glad that the location worked out well for all your local travel.

Beautiful, quiet, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a true gem. Every detail special and personal. We used the kitchen a lot, overlooking the terraced garden. Comfortable master bedroom facing garden. SF city views from the other rooms.

Due to the hills of SF houses sit on slopes - which leaves free space and no peeking in between neighbours. The whole house is clean and pretty. Area is quiet, no disturbances, i e good sleep. 2 blocks to basic shops and restaurants plus trolley.

A one of a kind retreat where you can feel at home.
