                                                              Our Home in San Francisco

                                                              Helen Castro L.Makati, Philippines

                                                              Our family's latest stay at The Boxwood House was our fifth, and our longest one so far. We lived in this beautiful home for a month. Our young adult children stayed with us on weekends. We've celebrated three of the last four Thanksgiving holidays here, and have built the most endearing memories in this home by the Palace of Fine Arts. The house is big enough so that five or six people would find their own little corners, while cozy enough to ensure that we had many opportunities to catch up on each other's lives. Whether it was watching a basketball or football game together in the entertainment room at the basement level, or grilling steaks at the outdoor patio where there is a live fireplace, or baking bread pudding in the main kitchen, our family has loved just being together here, which our children have nicknamed "the palace" - this place that has become what we've now considered home for us in San Francisco.

                                                              Thank you for taking the time to highlight your experience during your fifth stay. It is our goal to make sure everyone in your family feels welcome and at home. We feel so fortunate to have that view of the Palace of Fine Arts from so many places in the house, it is our favorite despite all the wonderful views around the world we've experienced. So glad your family shares that with us. We look forward to your stay again next Thanksgiving!

                                                              ONCE AGAIN!!!!!

                                                              You will never want to leave...and that's why we didn't!!!

                                                              We stayed for 10 months last year and came back for another year...and would stay another year!!! The beautiful decor (inside and out!) and all the comforts of home, along with the VIEW, the fabulous location, the lovely owners and Lorri (who will take care of everything for you - is so gracious and kind).

                                                              You are checked in feeling special and leave feeling grateful.

                                                              The kitchen (and the 2nd kitchen on the garden level!!) is stocked with all you could need. The beds are amazing with crisp freshly pressed sheets. It really feels like home. You will watch the Palace of Fine Arts come to life in the morning and glow beautifully in the evening when the sun sets.

                                                              If you can stay... stay!

                                                              Like I said...You will not want to leave!

                                                              Thank you so much for the kind words. We were so happy to have your lovely family stay at the house, can't believe it was almost two years! We are blessed with a fabulous location and are still taken back by that view of the Palace of Fine Arts each time we look out the window. Now that San Francisco is your home and you live nearby we hope to see you in the neighborhood!

                                                              House exceded our expectations!

                                                              We travel extensively and we've stayed in some of the finest hotels and resorts the world over. Now that we have a young child, we decided to do something different. So we rented this house in San Francisco for a month with the intent to become "temporary locals." What a wonderful experience it was!

                                                              The house itself is perfectly sized, clean and well-appointed which made us feel immediately at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything one could possibly need. We cooked daily and even made cupcakes. The location of the house was key for us. It is well-located within the Marina District allowing for easy walks to a gym, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores and many other services. An unexpected surprise -- one that we enjoyed very much -- was the people watching we did from our living room. The house has spectacular views of the Palace of Fine Arts and with those views came people from all walks of life. We lost count of how many brides in their wedding gowns chose the Palace of Fine Arts for their wedding photos!

                                                              All in all, it was a fabulous experience for our family. One we hope to relive in 2017.

                                                              We had an amazing 10 month stay in the dreamy Boxwood House! The location could not be better! The Palace of Fine Arts is literally in your front yard (and quietly, gorgeously glows each evening), the Marina is steps away and fun Chestnut Street (full of cute shops, cafes, movie theaters and great restaurants) is just a short walk. The home is beautifullly decorated inside and out. BOTH kitchens are complete with all the supplies and appliances one would need, the dining room with gorgeous china, the office with computer and printer, the bars are stocked, fabulous sonos sound system, gorgeous outdoor spaces…of course filled with beautiful boxwoods, laundry room with all you would need, fluffy towels and amazingly ironed Frette sheets on the cozy, comfortable beds. The owners and staff are very kind and responsive to any needs yet also greatly respect your privacy. It's fun to walk up the steps and open the gate to The Boxwood House…an "pretend" you live there!! We will be back!!

                                                              Fantastic property with all the right touches. The location of the house is close to the Marina and right across the street from the Palace of Fine Arts. This in addition to the interior and exterior design of the house makes this a must stay vacation home. That is not even the best part of the experience. The owners are kind and considerate and really care about making this a wonderful experience. So many personal touches.

                                                              Thanks

                                                              This house is exactly as advertised. Perfect. Quiet at night, Palace of Fine Arts is beautiful day and night. We hated to pack up and leave.
