vacation rental description

View the iconic Golden Gate Bridge from your penthouse room and decks. Walk to the Saint Francis Yacht Club or hundreds of restaurants. Jog throught the Predidio. Or enjoy a quiet night at home just blocks from the bustle.

It looks like a traditional San Francisco home on the outside but inside it's a contemporary architectural work of art with Golden Gate Bridge Views. Warm walnut floors and thresholds and soft furnishings make this contemporary home very warm and comfortable. The architecture is so striking that the home has been featured in magazines, on French TV and on the American Institute of Architects home tour.

The ground floor has a separate living room with antiqued mirrors and a gas fireplace. The dining room has a beautiful custom table that expands to seat 12 comfortably surrounded by soft, padded walls. Next to the dining room is the sleek kitchen, a mix of wood, Carrera marble and glass. The appliances are state-of-the-art. Dinner wear, glass wear and serving wear is ample for any occasion. The kitchen and dining rooms open to the family room. It has a large wood-burning fireplace, large lounge area and huge sliding doors that open onto the deck and the beautiful, level back yard. The powder room finishes off this floor.

The back yard has a deck with chairs and sofas covered by a glass deck above. The water wall pours down the side before pouring over the steps into a long pond. At the end is the fire pit, rising out of the water. It's surrounded by seating and a large picnic table. The built-in gas BBQ and outdoor range are great for outdoor entertaining or just cooking a great meal.

An open, metal staircase with glass rails leads up 2 floors and is capped by a huge skylight letting in lots of natural light. The second floor holds 3 bedrooms and two of the bathrooms. The two front bedrooms have perfect views of the Golden Gate Bridge. One has a queen bed and the other has bunk beds and is decorated in a safari theme for kids. The guest bathroom on this floor has a tub/shower with a large and very unique skylight over it. A laundry room has Miele front-loading washer and dryer.

The master bedroom is large with a queen bed, sofa, ottomans and plasma TV. Large sliding doors open onto a glass deck with views of the Bay and Alcatraz and overlooks the back yard. The master bathroom feels like the most luxurious spa you've ever been in. It's sleek and modern with stone of two tones punctuated by a stainless steel tub and double sinks. In the center, a 12 foot tall cube of frosted glass glows from the skylight above-- this is the master shower. Wash your hair watching the clouds drift overhead.

Taking the staircase up another level brings you to the penthouse level with its unique roofline and walls of windows. The front doors slide to open the room completely onto a deck overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge and the Presidio National Park, The Palace of Fine Arts, the mansions of Pacific Heights and the Bay. The back windows look out at Alcatraz, the Bay and the buildings of Russian Hill. This room has a very contemporary full bathroom with a glass ceiling. The room has a day-bed that's a full bed that sleeps 2 people. It's open to the stair hall but the penthouse makes a fairly private suite with a view. The wet bar with fridge makes this penthouse playroom a playroom for all ages!

The garage fits two cars tandem. It has a well-equipped work-out room with a weight machine, a Bowflex machine, a stationary bike, Step Mill, free weights, Ballet bar, and a plasma TV for using your favorite workout DVD's.

The home is located in the best part of Pacific Heights/Cow Hollow. The streets here dead-end into the Presidio National Park or Pacific Heights so there's little traffic and noise, but it's walking distance to the Union Street, Chestnut Street and Fillmore Street shopping districts. Jog to the Golden Gate Bridge (about 2.5 miles away along the waterfront promenade), enjoy hiking trails in the Presidio (3 blocks away), visit the Palace of Fine Arts and the Exploratorium (6 blocks away). Dozens of great restaurants, bars and wine bars are within walking distance. The best of San Francisco is right outside your door!

Bus service to downtown and Union Square is a block away. Other buses connect you car-free to the rest of San Francisco, including the museums, Fisherman's Wharf and Golden Gate Park. It's an easy drive over the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods, Pt. Reyes and Golden Gate National Parks, and the Sonoma and Napa wine country. It's the perfect location for exploring San Francisco and the rest of Northern California!

And, the house is powered by solar panels and contains the most energy-efficient appliances if you're concerned about being green.

traveler reviews for this san francisco house rental

Cannot say enough good things about this house and our stay

Review submitted: August 16, 2014   Date of arrival: July 18, 2014

We cannot say enough good things about our stay. The home is both stunning and wonderfully comfortable. The photos are great, but they do not do justice to the design and craftsmanship of the home. Our whole family (three kids eight and under) loved the home. Our kids would say they wanted to go back "home" while going to many of the sites around the city, and we could not blame them. The neighborhood is quaint and only a few blocks from terrific shopping and restaurants, and the views are amazing. Especially from the third floor.

The home exceeded our expectations, but what really made our time so nice were the owners. They could not have been more organized, helpful, welcoming and warm.

My only hesitation in writing this review is that I am concerned that the word will get out and we certainly plan on coming back.

A highly recommend home and experience!

Perfection in every way

Review submitted: April 16, 2013   Date of arrival: March 2, 2013

Our family always wanted to visit San Francisco. Not only did we find the perfect city for a family vacation, but even more, we could not have found a more perfect home for our stay and more pleasant and graceful homeowners. The house is perfectly renovated, with state of the art amenities. The photos even don't do justice to how beautiful and well thought out you will find the house. Everything is as new. And what a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz you will find in the upper level great room! Ideally located in the best area of Pacific Heights. No need for a car, everything is within easy access by cable bus (just around the corner), cable cars, or simply a very nice walk through the city.
We visited all SF during our stay, a square area that we can roughly identify as delimited between the Presidio and Market Street, and Fulton St. and the piers area almost all the way between Bay bridge and Golden Gate bridge. We loved everything, and again, the warm welcome of the homeowners and beautiful, ideally located house added very much to our stay. Walked a lot throughout the city and in the neighbourhood of Pacific Heights, including Lyon Street stairways, beautiful neighbourghood, visited all the must sees : the crowdy Market on our first Sunday, the piers, Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman’s Wharf (great lobster roll sandwich on the go…), the historic and war boats, shopping around Union Square, Pier 39 (don't miss the sea lions), the City Hall, Alamo square and the painted ladies, Haas-Lilienthall house, Lombard St., Chinatown, Science museum at Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz, Fort Mason Park, to name but a few. And many excellent restaurants nearby to suit every taste! What else to say: Perfection! Thank you so much!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Pacific Heights Perfection!

Review submitted: November 25, 2012   Date of arrival: November 19, 2012

We spent Thanksgiving week here and could not have been happier! Amanda and Vince are wonderful hosts - making sure we had everything we needed to entertain our 16 dinner guests. The house location is fabulous and it is beautifully decorated and spotless.
