Great, sleek, modern rental. Location is convenient to many places in San Francisco and was a good base for a trip to Napa. Backyard patio and backyard is very nice, but shared with owner, so realize courtesy is required. Owner and we were both pretty laid back and easy to work out. House is meticulously updated and will impress.

This property was completely updated and so clean and in a great part of town. Close to the BART and buses. Lots of shops within walking distance even a Whole Foods! Owner was so nice and accommodating. The kitchen could be better equipped for those who like to cook. Nice thing is that the owner lent us his skillet when we asked.

I have stayed in many vacation rentals over time (it's my favourite way to travel) and this one is a cut above the rest. The beautiful landmark mansion is gorgeous from the curb and gets even better as you enter the home. Everything is newly renovated and the owner spared no expense in creating a beautiful, fully appointed and modern convenience. When travelling with a group, 3.5 bathrooms is definitely appreciated and we never ran out of hot water. The bedrooms are spacious and very well decorated and the living room, kitchen, dining room and backyard are straight out of a magazine.
BUT DESPITE ALL OF THAT, the true beauty of this home, and what makes me want to rent it again, is the amazing hospitality of the couple who own it and live upstairs. Sean and Carol are extremely thoughtful and friendly and they go to great lengths to make sure their guests are enjoying their stay. We had more restaurant recommendations then we could possibly check out and a personalized welcome letter with a welcome gift awaited our arrival. Sean took the time to tour each of us through the home (even though we arrived in 3 separate groupings) and got to know each of us by name. I recommend this home to anyone and everyone looking for a great place to stay and a great experience of being welcome.

From the Owner

We both fell in love with this property from the start. This building has a very long and interesting history. It was constructed in 1899 and first owned by an Irish man. As I'm also Irish this made me feel right at home from the start. We purchased the building in Dec 2012 and have spent the last 18 months renovating the building. Now we have restored this beautiful building to it's former glory. When you arrive at the front gate and look up, you will fall in love with it as well.

From the Owner

It's a French renaissance mansion in the Mission, so that in itself makes it a very special building. The views from the back deck are breathtaking, and the weather in the Mission is by far the best in the entire city. It's located on the beautiful tree-lined Folsom Street and has the advantage of being nestled into the residential area. So at night it is nice and quiet but walking distance to the vibrant Mission nightlife. The Mission also has a unique cafe culture with the original Phil'z location just down the street. You'll often find Phil himself enjoying a cup of handmade coffee in the mornings so sit down and have a chat with him. Public transport via BART is minutes away so all of the city is at your disposal. It is a true gem in an amazing part of San Francisco. We dare you not to fall in love with this house, the neighborhood and the people!
