We are an easy taxi ride to Union Square and world class shopping, the Ferry Building and the Slanted Door, and the new de Young Museum; or you can venture out indeed all over San Francisco to experience the hottest new spots in SOMA, Cow Hollow, or the mission district.

traveler reviews for this san francisco house rental

Delightful. Delicious. De-Lovely.

Review submitted: June 4, 2014   Date of arrival: May 25, 2014

My husband and I traveled with another couple to SF and loved this property in pictures -- and moreover -- in person. It was perfect for us; it was located in a neighborhood that provided wonderful local flavor (and grocery shopping!!), and I skipped my daily run for all the walking (with hills). The beds were comfortable, the views were grand, and the kitchen was spacious and well-equipped. The only notation I would make is to ensure your realize the laundry is coin-operated (we came home with dirty clothes). Otherwise, this was a simply beautiful VRBO space with impressive views (so much so, a "local" friend was envious) and near great coffee shops (The Beacon), bars (La Trappe, Vesuvio, Tosaca), and restaurants (Fiore d'Italia, Tacolicious, Cafe Zoetrope, Cae DeLucchi).

Not As Expected!

Review submitted: September 27, 2013   Date of arrival: September 15, 2013

This property is on a dead-end street at the top of Vallejo and Mason...there is no parking available to unload baggage and 56 steps to climb. Very dangerous stairway with only one handle. Property only has one smoke alarm and not positive it is in working order. We assumed that the 1/2 bath would be larger and have a shower or tub. It is really a 1/4 bath remodeled from a very small closet. Three towels were left for an entire week for 4 adults. Very dusty and dirty...bedding has not been aired out for some time. This apartment needs a thorough cleaning and mopping. Kitchen floors had old food and dirt underneath the cabinets. Deck is a shared easement with several others properties...people are going up and down at all times of the day and night. Dangerous steps down to the garbage cans and laundry room. The only redeeming quality is the view of Coit Tower and the Bay Bridge. Park below the front window is very disgusting with trash, dog feces, plastic bottles, and someone's nasty surgical gloves! Very overpriced even though the America's Cup venue was in full swing. Any extra sheets or towels are available for an additional $150.00. We did enjoy some of the ethnic food in the area; however, I would stay in a hotel at any cost after this experience with room service, daily change of towels, sheets, and a concierge.

Owners response: Response to Review for Vallejo

I’m so sorry our guests didn’t have a good experience. It sounds from the summary line of his review, that hotels and on site service are more his cup of tea than a Vacation Rental by Owner, but let me address a couple of specific concerns.

The property is located at the dead end of Vallejo, right next to the Ina Coolbirth Park, (named after California’s first poet laureate), which provides an incredibly quiet location right in the heart of Russian Hill and San Francisco. It is a public park, and there are times between city cleaning that a bit of trash collects at the bottom of the park steps, in the parking places at the top of Vallejo. Both our neighbor and our maintenance person pick up that trash, but it can collect. There are steps to climb, (as shown in the photo of the exterior of the home on the Vacation Rental by Owner website and our personal website, 948vallejo, and the position of the property on the hill creates the incredible views from every single window. But the property is a Vacation Rental by Owner and not a hotel: no concierge or service person is there to help with the bags. The stairway along side the steps and the park is a city stairway, not part of our property. The ½ bath is a ½ bath with a sink and toilet: a bath with a shower or tub would be a full bath. The deck outside the unit is private to the unit.

My concern with the review is that during their full week stay in our home, we never heard from the guests. Our daughter, (a young architect in San Francisco), lives in a cottage adjoining the property, and if there were a problem with the cleaning crew or not enough towels, we could easily have remedied the problem: guests just need to ask. While we don’t have a concierge on the property as hotels do, we have a family member just a phone call or an email away.

Our guest chose what we all thought was the final week for the America’s Cup tournament, which had been going on in preliminary stages beginning in July. Who knew that the America’s Cup would not end the end of last week, but go on to a 19th race, until Team Oracle finally won 9 – 8! I’m afraid that the guests had not scheduled to stay in our property before the America’s Cup had been won.

What a superb experience!
This property is perfectly located, with a terrific ambience , beautiful views and is a great place to stay.
Russian hill, Chinatown, little Italy are all just a short walk away.
We felt really at home here.
The apartment is very well presented with high quality furniture ,everything is absolutely spotless and this was by far the best apartment we stayed in during our trip to California.
Ps the owner was totally professional and amazingly helpful.
I Recommend this lovely home to you.
