vacation rental description

This is an AMAZING renovated seven-room, three-bedroom, 1.5 bath single family home in the Castro District in San Francisco! It is filled with original antiques and furnishings which were chosen to provide an authentic Victorian experience for our guests.

The property includes a private driveway with an automatic gate leading to a parking area that will accommodate up to 3 cars! Be aware that off-street parking is really essential if you’re traveling with a car in San Francisco – even if there is street-parking available, most residential neighborhoods limit non-resident parking to 2-hours.

The 4,000 square ft. garden with a detached garage, and potting shed is virtually unheard of in the City. The yard has a brick BBQ grill, and is filled with mature trees of all sorts including figs, avocados, and plums. The home was moved to its current location after the 1906 earthquake on a sled pulled by horses! The tool shed on the lower-level was originally the house’s horse stable, and was in use until the early 20’s. We purchased the home from the family that moved it to the property over a hundred years ago!

You enter the house on the main-level through the beautiful living room with walls lined with photos of the original owners. You then enter a hallway with the staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms. Each room has a queen-size bed and is furnished with additional antique pieces. Heading down the stairs, you enter the dining room with a lovely round oak table that can be extended to seat six. Off the dining room is the third bedroom / office / media room with a queen-size sofa-bed, a 55” LED flat-screen television, HD cable, a Blu-Ray player, and a comfortable desk with an all-in-one printer for your use. Note: Although this is a 100 year old home, it is equipped with all the electronic bells and whistles including a full home-automation / security system, and very high speed (50Mbs) WiFi internet access.

At the rear of the house off the dining room is a large “Julia Child” vintage kitchen which is fully stocked for cooking and entertaining. Just off the kitchen is a small foyer leading to a full bath and the staircase to the lower-level. On the lower-level there is a separate toilet, wash sink, and full laundry facilities. The laundry room leads to the former stable with access to the garden.

The garden is truly one of the best features of the property. It is literally a million-dollar lot that was never developed, and maintained as open space. This provides a unique tree-filled tranquil area that will make you forget you are in the middle of a bustling city!

The home is on a tree-lined street in the heart of the San Francisco where you will find amazing shops, bars and restaurants. It is a wonderful area to explore on foot, and there is ready access to public transportation: Walk Score: 95, Transit Score: 98! The MUNI Metro Stop is 1 block away next to a terrific park with a great children’s playground. The Metro will have you downtown in 15 minutes, and the house is 5 minutes by car away from Highway 101. We have lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and we LOVE the area, and you will too!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

traveler reviews for this san francisco house rental

Lovely place in SF!

Review submitted: November 15, 2013   Date of arrival: November 8, 2013

We had a fabulous weekend in this apt in the Castro! We loved having a full kitchen (made a lamb roast the first night) and there was plenty of room to entertain our friends when they stopped by. The beds were very comfortable. We also loved the wine basket (thanks!). There's a corner store right up the hill with delicious sandwiches! We walked to the Mission district for dinner and dancing and to the Haight and Hayes Valley areas for shopping- great location!! Huge yard too- might have to come back this summer and fire up that BBQ.

Great choice for a convenient stay in San Francisco

Review submitted: October 25, 2013   Date of arrival: October 11, 2013

First, Mary and Ken are great hosts. From the first first interaction, they were proactive, warm and conscientious. The home almost has a cottage feel to it, very quaint. I stayed there with one guestl, but it could comfortably handle four I imagine (two couples). The parking and location are both very convenient, only a few minutes to walk to good restaurants, entertainment, etc. All In all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here. Very comfortable beds by the way!
