About the Owner

My name is Robin and I have lived in the Mission District of San Francisco for 20 years. I LOVE it here. I am a general contractor and have built many homes here in San Francisco. I love to take advantage of all the wonderful things this city has to do. I have many friends in the restaurant/entertainment business here in the City and I have my finger on the pulse of the city. I also have a 13 year old daughter. If you need advice or info on what the city has to offer, I can help you.

I left my heart at La Casa Verde

  • 5 of 5
I left my heart in San Francisco (it might be at La Casa Verde)! We had a fantastic time in San Francisco. We stayed at La Casa Verde which made our trip all the more pleasurable. We had seen the house on House Hunters on Vacation on HGTV and were delighted when we found the house on homeaway. The house was perfect for our extended family. It was large enough to all have our own rooms and privacy and also has a third story which is a huge open gathering space. We cooked some meals at the house and ate some out. The kitchen is a dream for anyone who and especially for me because I like to cook.

The house looks just like the photos and Robin who is the owner helped us with a lot of our plans. I think we did almost everything she suggested and I don’t think we could have had a better time! We were lucky to have great weather while in San Francisco so we spent time in the beautiful yard barbequing and hanging out together.

After staying at the house we spent the next 2 nights in a hotel. We had planned that since the house was already booked during our last two days. We were a party of 12 and we rented 3 rooms in a hotel. What a difference! We had an average of 4 people crammed in each room, some on cots and sharing bathrooms. We had to eat every meal out. Our luggage took over the rooms in the hotel and there was no space. It was a nice hotel, don't get me wrong. It just can't begin to compare to renting a big house.

This is the first time I have tried a vacation rental and this is the last time I will use a hotel, especially with a group of people. Yeah for vacation rentals and yeah for La Casa Verde. I have a new way to travel! I would recommend the house for any type of group whether a family or company or a group of friends. It’s simply great.

This is not a 5 bedroom, and "sleeps 16" is also misrepresented. You could sleep 10 if everyone shared a bed, and 4 people slept in the same room, otherwise people would be on couches or floors. It's a 3 bedroom, and the owner is pitching the office as a bedroom (which is separated by a flimsy plastic curtain from the adjacent bedroom #3), and a former sitting room separated by a pocket door from the master as a 5th bedroom. The light switches for the master and the master hanging closets are in this sitting room, and two double beds have been shoved in it. There is no real privacy. The shots of bedrooms #2 and #3 look nothing like this. What are shown as "bedroom with queen size bed" and "guest bedroom #3" are the same room with different furniture. The 3rd floor day time and night time shots look nothing like this today. The couch that is there now has several gashes, and the walls are beat up and poorly patched. The elevator is broken, the pool is not filled or usable, the tile behind the BBQ has all fallen off, the heating isn't operable, door handles fall off in your hands, the toilet seat in the master is broken, floors are horribly stained, the big door on the 3rd floor cannot be opened as a bottom hinge is broken, the front door is busted up on the corners, the sliding doors don't slide because the plastic sliders are busted out, a bathroom light fixture is busted and now is just an exposed tube light, and one main window upstairs was not operable as the crank was broken. Our first night there it rained hard all night, and rain water came in through the window and there was a flood of water about 10 feet around. We taped the window closed, but there remained an 8 inch gap, so every morning it was freezing upstairs. The kitchen is marginally provisioned, and the beautiful glass bubble light had dust caked on, and one of the 4 bulbs is burned out, so it’s not even worth turning on. The place is really beat up from years of being a rental, and the owner doesn’t care. We contacted her immediately about the problems, but other than suggesting that we move to her smaller 3 bedroom, she had no resolution, and did not take any responsibility or acknowledgement in the poor condition. A rental should be in good working order and reasonable cosmetic condition--this is neither. Her suggestion to me was to "try and be positive."

2nd time, as good as the first

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time my co-workers stayed at La Casa Verde, and it was a great time as before. There was a small issue with the new Internet connection that Robin quickly addressed and made sure everything was straightened out. Such a great location and a great place to stay. Could not be more pleased.

California Dreamin' on Such a Winter's Day!

California Dreamin' on Such a Winter's Day!
  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I stayed at this house during our 4th annual San Francisco Girl's Weekend. Here are the reason's we will be returning and why I have already reserved this place for next year:

The layout works for groups. The 2nd floor are all bedrooms and the 3rd floor is one big open floor plan. It was designed for people to socialize easily and hang out. There were 8 of us and each of the rooms were so cool none of us fought over the master bedroom. LOL. And the bathrooms! I got Pinterest style inspiration for remodeling my house and many got posted to Instagram! They are so cool and unique.

Good service. We had asked the property manager if they could stock the kitchen before we arrived so we wouldn't have to spend half a day taking a cab to the grocery store. Who wants to do that on a short trip?! We sent her a list of everything we wanted to make for dinner and when we arrived it was all put away in the fridge and pantry! Such a nice touch. We really enjoyed cooking in this house!

The location. We learned the hard way over the years about the drastic weather changes from one SF neighborhood to the next. This particular location is called the Mission and we learned and experienced that it was one of the more sunnier places in San Francisco. It made the wrap around decks off the kitchen highly utilized for morning coffee and evening cocktails! Also the neighborhood is very charming and there are many local spots to eat and drink within walking distance.

The house's condition. It is clean!!! Which is sometimes one of the greatest fears I have when renting someone else's house. Since the girls and I wanted to cook the entire weekend, we decided to have the house keepers come daily. We ended up paying $120 total for the house keepers to do the dishes, clean the kitchen, etc. It was worth it!

This place is so cool!

All style, very little substance or comfort.

  • 2 of 5
Nutshell: If you’re not from California, avoid this house. It’s uncomfortable, interior is poorly designed, far from tourist attractions, sits amidst a couple of sketchy blocks, and the host isn't easy to deal with. With so many other options and for this money, stay elsewhere.

Long of it: The house looks amazing on the website. It even looks great as you approach it for the first time. Most people - ourselves included - have never stayed in such a large, modern home. The wow factor quickly fades, though - after you start to settle in, you notice a few little things, then more... and then bigger things, all of which prevent you from enjoying your stay.

- The whole place needs a refresh – walls, doors, furniture, stairs. Don't rely on the website photos.
- No A/C, no fans - anywhere. When it's warm, the bedroom air gets still and stale.
- Most of the beds are in need of replacement.
- The window shades do little to block the sun. You'll be up very early.
- Seriously lacking in privacy. No locks, on any internal doors. Most of the doors don't even close all the way. Want to cuddle with your honey, or something more intimate? Yeah, that won't be happening.
- Speaking of doors - all interior doors are pocket doors, with no latch to help you pull the door out of the wall. When we arrived, the doors were pushed all the way into the wall. These are very large, very heavy doors. It took two people on each door several minutes to shimmy each one out of the wall.
- There are probably 30 light switches in the house – half of which do nothing. Good luck figuring out which switches turn on what lights and which do nothing.
- Shower knobs literally fall off. In one of the bathrooms, you have to warm up the shower water by turning on the hot water in the bathtub next to the shower. Figured this out after waiting 10 minutes for hot water the 1st morning.
- The windmill that generates power for the house has a high-pitched whine that can be heard in the master bedroom making it difficult to sleep.
- The 5th bedroom isn't a bedroom - it's an office with two futons. With a huge corner window and no shades on it.

Icing on the cake: Someone came into the house while we were out one day, dropping a key on the floor. Realizing that someone had been there, we texted the owner to ask if someone had been and let her know they had left a key. Her response? 'That's ridiculous. No one was there'. Doesn't exactly help you sleep at night.

Perfect place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5
I rented both of the houses at La Casa Verde for the weekend of my wedding. I live in San Francisco but had family coming in from all over the country. I had driven by the house many times and noticed it because it has quite a presence so I was really excited when I saw it listed on homeaway. It turned out to be the perfect decision and place to host my family. Many of my family members had not seen each other in years so to have them all together was a treat for everyone. We had 19 people total and between the two houses there was plenty of room for everyone. The houses were modern, clean and had good flow. They also had good common space for cooking and eating and visiting which was important to us. I live in the neighborhood so I am familiar with it and think it is the best place in San Francisco to live and visit. The Mission has everything you could possibly want and if you can't find it there is easy transportation to get anywhere else in the city. Renting both houses at La Casa Verde was a great decision for our family. I would definitely do it again.

  • We can arrange the following for you if you would like: Car service, limo service, daily maid service, tours, chef service and more. The pool has an additional daily charge. Since we do not usually have pool weather in San Francisco it is recommended that you bypass this additional charge. Our experience is that most guests who order the pool do not usually end up using it because San Francisco is fairly cold or cool most of the time. We can heat the pool but it is a pool and not a hot tub so while it gets warm it does not get to hot tub temp
