Dear Charles and Brian,

Thank you for letting us use your house. The views were outstanding and the interior was contemporary and modern. It was perfect for us. My wife's parents had no problems with the stairs. Thanks again.

This is our second stay in the beautiful Victorian on the top of Nob Hill. Once again Brian and Charles delivered!

Not only is the home in an exclusive area of SF, with the cable car line right at the footsteps of a cozy and private lane, with supermarkets and other services at a short walk's distance, it is the attention to detail and care that distinguishes this home as a unique vacation/corporate rental from any others we have visited. You live like a true San Franciscan .

Not to mention the fabulous view room with nearly 180 views from Twin Peaks to just about Alcatraz...unforgettable views of the GG bridge during sunsets and the fog rolling in....unforgettable!

Not to forget the new state of the art appliances just put in ( fantastic washer/drier....better than going to the cleaners) along with a silent was so silent, I could not tell upon using it for the first time that it was on!

This is truly a large, beautiful, comfortable and all around well maintained classic SF Victorian with modern touches to make it feel modern, but yet maintain it's original feel

We already are booking are next stay...can't wait!

Family get together

Wow! What an amazing property! The photos of the view from the Golden Gate room do not do it justice, it is incredible to sit on the balcony and enjoy the stunning views. September is a great time of year to visit this area, our weather was fabulous, and this is such a great location to have as a base. We had all the amenities we needed in this very comfortable property. We dealt with Brian and he was great, thanks for the info you sent, it was really helpful and we tried a couple of your restaurant recommendations! Oh and the steps, hard the first day, running up them by the end of the week!

Best view hands down! We had a great Birthday celebration. The steps we're get exercise as well as the hills. Great food and transportation so close by. We all want to return soon. The weather was perfect. Brian and Charles were so easy to work with. Excellent experience all around!

Fabulous time in this wonderful little oasis in San Francisco. Our favourite hide out was the Golden Gate room with beautiful vistas - morning, noon and night! Beautifully appointed home, with all of the amenities! This home is a real treasure, and made our surprise birthday trip with our 65 year old Hubbies to SF, such a memorable event!

Perfect, Ideal and Just Right!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner had the most wonderful and, yes, magical time staying in this beautiful, large, clean and well appointed oasis of serenity in SF. The owners, Brian and Charles, could not have been more charming and welcoming. The home is perfect for 4 people, but very special for just two( one full bath for each!). But the most special part was the view room...from the first thing in the morning to the last thing at night it is a stunning feature not easily found elsewhere....they have made an elegant and stylish home a cozy and familiar feel welcomed and at home...

There were days we just stayed in enjoying the house, the view, the comfy bed and the very nice kitchen. And when you want to go out, you have the cable car line right in front of the steps and a couple of blocks away bus line 1 going each way , not to mention Lebeau market and , further down, a CVS and Trader Joe's.

The best compliment I am able to offer is that we are already booking our next stay there ..can't do it fast enough!

Our New Favorite Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from San Francisco and this wonderful home and can't wait to go back. A previous reviewer said they felt like King/Queen of Nob Hill and they weren't kidding. The view is AMAZING and you truly feel like you are at the top of the city. The house is tastefully decorated while still being comfortable. The bed and bedding are heavenly. The favorite room is of course the Golden Gate Room, but really all rooms in the house are nice to hang out in. The hills may seem a bit daunting at first but with all the food you are eating you will welcome the extra calories burned. By the end of our stay we were flying up the steps with ease! The location can't be beat, turn left or right and start walking to find all the best neighborhoods. The cable car is right there (get a three day pass) and we used "Uber" car service all week and they were at the bottom of the steps within minutes. The owners seem to be pros at vacation rentals because they have truly thought of everything you might need. We come to San Francisco often and now can't imagine staying anywhere else.
