About Alan

I've lived in San Francisco over 30 years and currently work as a Realtor. I love my work as it allows me to explore the historical nature of our City and meet a diverse range of clientele. I chose to join the VRBO network as a way of sharing a piece of my home with visitors who come to San Francisco, who also want to experience one of the most beatiful cities in the world with a touch of local flair.

In addition to renting the unit, we are always available to answer any questions and share our local expertise on good eats, fun nightlife and local hot spots.



Alan purchased this condo in 1999

Why Alan chose Dolores Heights

Prior to living in Dolores Park, I lived in the Marina, Pacific Heights and South of Market. Dolores Park is by far my favorite neighborhood. Not only is it sunny and warm most of the time, there is a ton of 'local color.' There is no shortage of gourmet restuarants and markets, cafes, hip boutiques and you are only a short distance from downtown via muni. Highways 101 and 280 are also easily accessible.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is located in one of the most desirable areas of Dolores could not be in a better location! You are walking distance to Dolores Park, the Castro, Noe Valley's 24th Street and the hip Valencia Street Cooridor. The SF Muni is one block away and you will be downtown in less than 15 minutes.

Stayed here for the second time (after a terrible nearby Airbnb experience) with my three teenagers, and we will probably only stay here in the future. The apartment is in pristine condition, and the location is perfect.

This is a fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, clean, hip, and well-equipped. The location is perfect -- walking distance to tons of restaurants, cafes, and a grocery store. It's around the corner from Dolores Park, a MUNI stop, and less than 2 blocks from a Zipcar. Alan is wonderful and super-fast to respond to any questions. We stayed here for a month and have zero complaints, it really felt like home.

SF Abode

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plus our grown son stayed in SF Abode over Thanksgiving week. It is a terrific apartment and very much like the pictures. Allan was very responsive to my pre-stay emails, so everything was clean and in good order when we arrived. The view out the front window of the SF skyline is very nice. Furnishings are quite good and the beds/linens are excellent. The location is very convenient to the Mission, Noe Valley and Dolores Park. This is a hilly part of SF, so be prepared to walk uphill or downhill out of the apartment and to go up stairs to get in. If I was to give one minor criticism, the kitchen isn't really stocked for someone who plans to do a lot of cooking (e.g., no steamer or good stir fry pan), but it has all the basics. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful rental in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful Victorian in a great area between the Castro, Mission, and Noe Valley. The apartment has been completely modernized, and the furnishings are new. The apartment has everything you need for a short or extended stay. The apartment overlooks Mission Delores park, and has great views of San Francisco. It's just minutes from the best restaurants and bars in the Mission District.

Alan the owner was very accommodating. We needed another tank of gas for the outdoor grill since we were entertaining family from the area, and he provided it the next day.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Alan's flat. He was more than accommodating with restaurant recommendations and allowing us to store our luggage after check out. The layout was great for us, as it was a couple and friend staying in SF. The bedrooms were on opposite sides of the flat with a bathroom for sharing. The flat was very clean and nicely decorated. It made for a very relaxing stay. Also, the location couldn't have been better!!
