House exceded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

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.

The Boxwood House

  • 5 of 5


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!!

Boxwood House

  • 5 of 5

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.

A perfect five days

  • 5 of 5

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.

Shangri la in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this fabulous house for 10 days. We were in San Francisco for many reasons, I was running the San Francisco half marathon, it was my husband's birthday and my daughter's sweet 16 in the same week and we just wanted some down time as a family before our oldest went off to college.

I won't get so much into the things that we did in SF. We've all been to SF before and took in a lot of the tourist sights and we did some of that this time too. I would much rather talk about the house. For us, the house was a retreat, a world away from home but right in the heart of San Francisco.

We did a lot of relaxing, reading, cooking, enjoying the view every second that we could. We left the curtains open at night to enjoy the beautiful lights from the Palace. We grilled and enjoyed dinner in the entertainment room. Location is everything. As a runner, I ran every day on the marina to Fort Point. On the weekend I had easy access to the bridge and ran over the bridge to Marin and back. It was a runner's dream location! My teenage kids discovered Chestnut and walked up and down window shopping, getting a bite and just enjoyed the neighborhood

It's the little details that make this house great; the chefs kitchen; the quality of the finishes; the sophisticated yet warm and inviting decor; Kiehls products in the master bath; Stella on tap and the small touches like the birthday cake and cupcakes hat greeted both my husband and daughter. Totally unexpected and totally on point! Joseph, the manager was lovely to work with and super professional. Our stay was everything we wanted and more. My family and I will always remember our time at the Boxwood house. Not sure when but I am fairly certain I will come back and stay at this house! We very highly recommend this home!!

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

The house is beyond the photos. Not only is every room luxurious to a fault, but the view, the amenities, the attention to detail and the thoughtfulness of what a guest would possibly want took this place over the top. We loved the location for our family - two small children able to hit the beach, the park, walk to breakfast, play in the was very family friendly. We had a fantastic week and hope to book another. We highly recommend this home.

Located in the Marina district of San Francisco, one of the most favored neighborhoods in the city and it's just ten minutes by car to Union Square but worlds away from the hustle and bustle. This makes it a perfect location that is truly second to none in San Francisco. The area boasts the finest weather, shopping, dinning, and social scene the city has to offer. We are just down the block from the local yacht harbor, beach and outdoor recreation areas, and a short distance to the famous Golden Gate Bridge. We are within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square and Presidio National Park.
