vacation rental description

This house is an experience to behold, but only if you are looking for something extraordinary.

Imagine living directly across from the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Forum in Rome with a shimmering lake in the foreground! This beautifully restored Marina home has every bit of that and even more! Directly across from your living room window remains the last structured remnant of the 1915 Panama Pacific worlds fair: 'The Palace of Fine Arts,' or 'The Fine Arts Palace,' as it was once referred to. This fair was an epic event that commemorated the completion of the Panama canal and the rebirth of San Francisco from the disastrous 1906 earthquake and fire. The exposition consumed the entire marina district with structures, many of which were abandoned after the fair, leading it to be referred to as the 'Phantom City.'

With many of its luxurious amenities, this home offers 3000 sq ft of living space over three floors. The fully stocked large eat-in chef's kitchen has a Sub Zero refrigerator and Wolf Range. The spacious deck located off of the kitchen leads to the beautiful backyard where the entertainment room is located. Sliding doors open to the covered patio with barbeque, fireplace and dining table. The entertainment room features a 65 inch flat panel TV, beer dispenser, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher and half bath.

The master bedroom has a breathtaking view of the Palace of Fine Arts and features a California king bed, walk in closet, flat panel TV, and blackout curtains. The master en suite bath features double sinks and heated tile floors. The second bedroom offers a king size bed, couch, and large closet/lounge area. The third bedroom has a full size canopy bed. Luxury linens include Frette sheets and Turkish bath towels.

The romantic dining room/library has a crystal chandelier and shimmering silver walls. Enjoy a wonderful dinner or relax and peruse our library.

The living room is elegant, luxurious and irresistibly comfortable. Lounge by the fireplace and enjoy a glass of wine while being mesmerized by the breathtaking Palace View.

Retreat to the study to unwind and watch the latest movie or favorite show on the large flat screen TV.

This well-appointed home has all the amenities and location that one would need for an enjoyable San Francisco experience. So, if you are used to the finer things in life, Particularly when you vacation, then this house is for you.

Advance showings are acceptable upon funded commitment. In the event the house does not meet or exceed your expectations, we would gladly refund your money.

traveler reviews for this san francisco house rental

Exceeds expectations in every way

Review submitted: July 3, 2014   Date of arrival: June 12, 2014

This house exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable. It is located on an elegant street in the Marina, with beautiful homes and a magnificent view from the living room, master bedroom upstairs, and the guest bathroom downstairs of the stunning colonnade and dome of the Palace of Fine Arts. The daytime views are splendid but because the Palace is lit up at night, the sunset and evening views are truly spectacular.

The house is within easy walking distance to many terrific cafes, bistros, and restaurants, as well as a great bookstore and several bakeries and specialty grocery stores on Chestnut Street. it is also a mere three blocks to the Marina promenade, where you can jog, fly a kite, cycle and take in incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge. There is plenty of on street parking, and the garage fit our two cars very comfortably.

The house itself is exquisitely decorated, practically designed, and very well furnished. The attention to detail is extraordinary. The owner spared no luxury so the house came stocked with the finest towels, linens, bathrobes, slippers and toiletries. Everything was so thoughtful. Very kindly provided were juices, drinks, fresh fruit, croissants, a lovely fresh cake and virtually everything one would keep in a luxury home.

This is a six star home in a fantastic location. We had our best stay in San Francisco ever. If you are a family or a small group, this house far exceeds a Four Seasons or Mandarin Oriental experience. We could not have been more delighted or satisfied.

The house is cozy and comfortable, and there are special features like a gorgeous eat-in kitchen, a patio deck upstairs, and a lovely, impeccably manicured garden downstairs that connects to the den which has a huge TV, kitchenette, bathroom and fireplace.

Joseph was attentive and reliable. We arrived from overseas at midnight and he met us promptly at the home and politely explained all its features. We would recommend this fabulous house without reservation and look forward to many repeat visits. Thank you for give us our most memorable stay in San Francisco!

Kind regards,

Tony and Helena

Simply beautiful

Review submitted: June 24, 2014   Date of arrival: May 21, 2014

This beautiful home has made our time in San Francisco very special and memorable. It has been a haven to return to after sightseeing and shopping. The décor and attention to detail was beyond our expectations. in fact, we have been conflicted about wanting to spend time here and venturing out.. The house has so many fantastic areas to enjoy and of course the Palace of fine Arts has captured us. "What a view!! In particular, we loved the downstairs outside room and spent several wonderful evenings there. We really appreciated the welcoming food and wine. The sound system was fantastic. Last but not least, Joseph was extremely welcoming and a considerate host. A wonderful end to our American holiday! We would love to come back someday and will recommend to our friends. Thank you Wendy, Denise, Irene, Kia, Auckland NZ

Best of the best!

Review submitted: April 30, 2014   Date of arrival: April 17, 2014

What can I say about this palace of a home? It was impeccable. The finishes were warm and inviting and everything I would want in a home (plus much more). Everything was perfect in its place. There was so much attention to detail.

Joseph was amazing. He answered any and all questions we had, and even had a beautiful arrangement of fruit and cake (delicious nonetheless) for all of our guests.

The location was perfect. We were headed out on a dinner cruise for the evening and it was a mere block from the bay.

I could not have asked for a better place to stay. Thanks for the great memories!
