As California natives and long-time SF residents, we love all that the city and region has to offer. As our two daughters have gotten older, they've been bitten by the travel bug so we try to see as much as the world as possible, often using Home Away as well. While in SF, we explore alot and can offer lots of ideas for excursions in and around the area...please don't hesitate to ask.
Owner purchased this House in 2004
Why Owner chose Marina District
The Marina district has it all; close to major tourist sites, recreational activities, restaurants, and services. We had long coveted Avila street as it's one of the only blocks in the Marina that's exclusively single-family homes. Great neighbors, close to the action but quiet and peaceful. The house is taller and wider than most, creating functionality that other homes don't have.

Fabulous home and location
My husband and I could not have hoped for a more perfect setting for our family to stay before and after a wedding in San Francisco. As the groom's family, we were traveling to the city and wanted to have a comfortable place for us and a few adult aunts and uncles to stay. It was perfect. The wedding photographer even came to the home, which is where the groom and groomsmen got ready for the wedding. The space was terrific--it was made for special occasion photography! The home is elegant, beds were super comfortable, and the kitchen nicely appointed. I appreciated that there were spices that made cooking an easy option. The owner was really helpful when we had a "silly" question on the first day. If we have the chance to return, we will look into staying here again. Thank you for opening your home to us. It was a great experience!!!
Beautiful home in perfect location
What a fabulous week in this gorgeous home. Loved this location-away from the tourists, it was a true neighborhood, one of the nicest in San Francisco. A couple blocks to the marina, and Chestnut street with lots of restaurants and shops. it's a hike to the tourist sites like fishermans wharf, but a pretty walk along the water. Or super easy to Uber there too! Plus the area here is flat, which makes it easy to get around! The house was perfect. We had 8 adults (our 3 grown sons, and other family) and we had plenty of room. Bathrooms were never an issue getting ready as there are 3 full. There was plenty of gathering space at tables for breakfast or in the evening playing games. The backyard is cozy and secluded. It is beautifully appointed and plenty stocked, even having staples and spices. They have a binder with restaurant suggestions and home instructions which was very useful. When we got to the house there was a welcome bottle of wine which we were so happy to open about that time! How thoughtful! The owner was extremely responsive anytime I had questions prior to our arrival. One thing to keep in mind when planning for bedrooms is one of the rooms has the bed lofted, so need to have someone climb a ladder to use it (I only say this depending on who is in your group). It wasnt an issue for us. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone!
Great location. Beautiful luxury home. Peaceful
Rooms set up great for our 6 teenagers in tow. They had the whole game room downstairs to themselves to watch movies, play video games. Great breezes throughout the house. Dining room fit everyone. Plenty of supplies for younger kids to entertain themselves too if needed. Beautiful bay windows to sit & read & relax & listen to music. Beds very comfortable & showers beautiful. Shopping was very close, food choices, coffee shops, bike rentals all close. Thank you for sharing your home.
Beautiful Home & Perfect Location
This is a beautiful home in an ideal location. The Marina has tons of restaurants, shopping, and nightlife nearby. The proximity to the water allows for plenty of outdoor activities, as well. Kipp was super helpful and responsive throughout the process. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property to others!
Beautiful Home, Great Location, Safe Neighborhood
Kipp was very easy to communicate with leading up to our stay, so thank you again Kipp! There was a binder with clear instructions on house rules, how tos, and restaurant recommendations (which we tested a couple and they were fantastic!) The home is absolutely beautiful and had everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the area - walking distance to great restaurants and close to a running trail that will take you to the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a fantastic stay and we would definitely stay again if the situation presented itself. I would highly recommend this home.
