Five room, beautifully furnished, very comfortable and exceptionally well appointed 1200 square foot flat in a two unit condominium with large shared garden. We are looking for conscientious, considerate non-smokers who care about, and for, their vacation homes. In addition to staying in a home many people have reviewed as simply the best, you will be in a vibrant, safe neighborhood with a wonderful variety of cafes and restaurants within a ten-minute walk (yes, even Starbucks). For a GREAT San Francisco experience, stay in our home!

Curl up in the sofa and read your book or one of hundreds of ours. Listen to our music library of 100 CDs on the High End Component Stereo System. Watch Blu-Ray DVDs or HD TV with HD Digital Cable on the 42' Plasma TV. Check your email or search online on our 18' Laptop computer, or connect your own laptops and smartphones via our secure in-house high speed WiFi network. Serve gourmet meals on the solid wood dining room table with hand carved French chairs. Relax in the garden at our table for four with wrought iron chairs or lounge on the teak deck chairs.

Relax, cook and share the excitement of your San Francisco vacation in the big Kitchen open to the large, cozy Family Room facing the rear garden. Wall-to-wall carpets in living room, dining room, hall and bedroom add an extra soft touch.

Rest peacefully in your quiet bedroom on a queen size bed with quality linens and down comforter. Euro and standard pillows with bedside lamps for relaxing/reading in bed. Bedroom closet with chest of drawers with a second closet in the dining room.

Super Comfortable Room&Board Queen+ sleeper-sofa in the living room. Made by American Leather, this new generation of sofa-sleepers looks elegant as a sofa and opens to a fully flat, fully supported, bed with 4 inch memory foam mattress. Larger than Queen size (66x80 inches) it has more than enough room to sleep two adults comfortably. Curtains, drapes and pocket doors add privacy. Sleeper-sofa also comes with Down Comforter, quality linens and pillows.

The well maintained shared garden in back of this two unit condominium features trees, ferns, jasmine, and many other beautiful seasonal flowers. Weber barbecue on the Brick Patio.

It is easy for you to enjoy your visit to exciting San Francisco: Walk one block to a full supermarket, five minutes to Golden Gate Park Panhandle, ten to Alamo Square Park with its famous Painted Lady Victorians. Just a fifteen-minute walk to exciting Haight-Ashbury or to Buena Vista Park with its trails, tennis courts and panoramas of the bay, or thirty to the Castro or the Conservatory in Golden Gate Park.

Minutes by car from your own secure garage to Downtown shopping, Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach, the Haight, Upper Fillmore and the Castro. Easy access to freeways leading to the Golden Gate and Oakland Bay Bridges. A garage in San Francisco is a Must! Imagine not having to move your car every two hours to avoid tickets!

But why hassle with traffic and parking when public transport to everything is only a block away?

This is a vibrant, safe neighborhood with a great variety of cafes and restaurants within a ten-minute walk.

For a unique San Francisco experience, stay at our place and discover the pulse of the city or just relax in a real home.

See you soon!

About the Owner

We are a retirement age couple who find ourselves away from San Francisco more often these days. Although we love our home and we love San Francisco, we also like to travel. Now we rent our home to guests like you while we are away. When we are home we are usually working to upgrade and refresh our house. We know you will enjoy the results!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. The house is exactly how it looks, and has everything from a huge TV, to a fully equipped kitchen (better than mine at home!) There are also a number of rooms (dining area, kitchen, lounge and front room); meaning even if the maximum number of people stayed it wouldn’t feel cramped. The garden was also beautiful, and much bigger than the picture suggests. I even spied a BBQ!



Lucky supermarket (a full supermarket, not just a corner shop) is a short block away. It literally had every type of food you could imagine. As the kitchen was so well stocked I did end up preparing my own breakfasts, and cooked a couple of evenings. There were many pantry items left over from previous guests, so if you wanted to cook a meal you could check before going to Lucky. I was so glad of the kitchen, as a solo traveler eating out at night seemed a bit daunting. Plus it meant I had the home comforts in a great new city.



The laptop, printer and internet were useful. Used it to order take out one night (so I could watch the first episode of Glee on the biggest TV I've ever seen in my life). Connection was great, and the laptop large enough for a couple of people to crowd round and decide what to do in San Francisco. My Mac laptop also logged on to the wifi fine.



The bus stop was literally around the corner, and using the internet I was able to print out all routes very easily. I bought a 7 day passport that gave you unlimited travel on the Muni system. However at only $2 per trip, I don't think the passport was needed. When entering the bus your ticket is valid for up to 90 minutes. The maximum time I spent traveling was 45 minutes, and that was to the zoo so travel time really wasn't long. Plus you get to feel like a native (3 times somebody asked me for directions, so I think I blended in well!!!) the closest bus was also 24 hours so no worrying about trying to get home at night.



Booking the apartment was easy, and the few questions I had were answered very quickly. Given the time difference (I am in the UK) I do wonder if David does ever actually sleep.

There was a document provided that had all info in. everything from taxi numbers, to emergency contact details and how the washing machine works.



I would definitely stay here again. Much nicer than one of the hotels around union square (and cheaper, especially if you cook some meals)

I can't imagine anywhere better for a great San Francisco experience

I can't imagine anywhere better for a great San Francisco experience

David has first class guest service at the top of his agenda. Lots of little things really helped. My favourites: use of installed laptop and printer, and useful local information easily signposted; being able to make local calls from the home phone (really good when our mobile routes via uk); well equipped kitchen but the little things really helped for a week's stay, food wrap, salt & pepper, laundry soap, to name but a few. We wanted to blend into the local area for our short stay, but this actually needed somewhere we felt safe, good shops with fresh foods, easy access to public transport. All these local amenities were covered in the information provided and it was a truly great area. The local family run coffee shop had our names and favourite coffees by day 2! Everyday (after coffee!) we swam in the pool at nearby San Francisco University. A great resource a few blocks away. And we really loved San Francisco. I can't think of any other big city where we have received so much help and warm welcomes whatever we were doing. Don't hesitate, book this apartment. Thank you David, we hope to come back.

Owner's Response: We are glad you appreciated what we do to help our guests enjoy their time in our home. We, too, stay in VRBO rentals when travelling and we value the many little things others have done for us to make life easier when we are on the road (and we admit we have stolen ideas from each place we stayed!) We do hope you will return. Thanks again!

Lovely retreat in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5
Just finished a weeks vacation in San Francisco and I am so glad I decided to go with a vacation rental this time around. And doubly feeling blessed that I found this lovely jewel, right in the heart of the city!!
The apartment is spacious, beautiful, and perfectly appointed with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. It is tucked away on a quiet street, so the traffic noise was never bothersome. David, the owner, has obviously taken great care to assure that guests have a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully stocked, the bedroom is cozy, the bed super comfortable. My daughters stayed with me and both pull-out beds were actually quite comfortable. Even the one deemed "only for children".
It was especially nice to have access to a computer during our stay. We were able to use it to research sites to visit, and also print out boarding passes...
Thank you, David, for sharing your absolutely lovely home!! I can't wait to return!!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in our house. We love to hear words like 'lovely jewel, perfectly appointed and super comfortable'. This is the atmosphere we always try provide for our guests and are glad we succeeded. We had just finished installing new kitchen cabinets, stone counter-tops and stainless steel appliances and we are glad we had more storage for all the kitchen things we think our guests deserve to make their stay more comfortable (and so much nicer than a hotel room). We look forward to your next visit and send best wishes for the holidays to come!

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5
We just had a great 1 week stay here. The offstreet parking is a real asset even though the space is tight. The apartment is spacious and very clean. It offers many nice amenities that are not always available in other vacation rentals.

Owner's Response: Spacious and Clean... So much better than a cramped hotel room and Clean because we have a great crew who make our home shine! We go out of our way to offer so many amenities because we also live there part of the year. This way we all benefit! We know street parking is difficult so we are glad to share our garage under the house. Yes, space is tight so its best to rent an economy or compact size! (Its also easier to get around San Francisco in a smaller car.) Thanks!

Fantastic

We were a family of 4 (incl 2 boys 8 & 3). This is a very well equipped place which makes it a very comfortable stay and well worth the money spent. Good location. Deposit was returned very promptly. We would definitely stay there when in SF next.

A most welcoming place to come home!

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with your beautiful home! On entering we knew we would be extremely comfortable and we had loads to look at with all the lovely artworks.
It turns out we arrived with the biggest storm of the year! It was great to have such a lovely place to come back to after big soakings!!! We walked miles and miles. One day we did your recommended walk via Land’s End from the walk book on the computer. It was very wet and windy but we survived.
We were very, very comfortable in your home and hope to return one day. We took a supply of your refrigerator magnets and have already recommended your lovely home to friends and family! Thank you for all your kindness.

Location

From the Owner

We have lived in the San Francisco area for more than 40 years and purchased our San Francisco home in 1997. In 2001 we began to spend time away and a friend suggested we try VRBO. We soon learned that people really enjoyed our home-like atmosphere. We are thrilled with the response we have gotten and work hard to keep our new and returning guests contented and feeling cared for. Visitors say they appreciate our knowledge of the city and our professional attitude.

Amenities

From the Owner

Most guests mention the feeling of a being in a real home on entering the house. We think this is because we still live there part-time and keep the house comfortable and well maintained not only for our guests but for ourselves as well. We are also proud of our garden, keeping it maintained even while we are away. We paint, scrape, clean, renew, update and replace parts of the house every time we come to visit. We think it shows. Our guests certainly enjoy our home. Read the reviews! Over 150 with 4 and 5 star ratings. We get these ratings not because everything is always perfect (we do try, however!) but because we go out of our way to help our guests settle in and feel at home and we respond quickly to any question. Finally, if you are bringing a car, you will absolutely love our little garage (for economy to mid-size cars). Parking rules in SF can make you dizzy. If you don't bring a car - great! - hop on the bus one block from the front door.
