vacation rental description

Try to imagine living directly across from the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Forum in Rome with a shimering lake thrown in to boot! 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. 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 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 read one of the many interesting books.

The living room is elegant, luxurious and irresistibly

comfortable. Sit 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 everything one would need for an enjoyable San Francisco experience, all you need is your suitcase!

traveler reviews for this san francisco house rental

Gorgeous Home & Excellent Manager

Review submitted: April 2, 2014   Date of arrival: February 26, 2014

We used this home for a company offsite meeting but I wish I was vacationing over night instead! The home is exactly as pictured and absolutely phenomenal. It was clear that no penny was spared in restoring this historical home in the way you dream of remodeling a home and updating it to modern luxury. Designer finishes throughout made for the exquisite home.

Additionally, the manager was delightful to work with. He was organized, flexible, professional, and sincerely wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay there. Honestly, these are the type of VRBO experiences you always hope for! Definitely looking forward to using this rental again when the need arises.

Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed!!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Amazing San Francisco Home!

Review submitted: March 10, 2014   Date of arrival: February 4, 2014

My husband and I stayed here the night of my 60th birthday. I love this home with its view of the Palace of Fine Arts and luxurious furnishings. I could seriously just move in here! I told my husband, I don't know which is better: going to sleep or waking up at this home.
There is so much attention to detail and everything is provided for a comfortable stay. It's not often that you have such beautiful bed linens, towels and even robes!
All told, the property was amazing and even better than described. I would highly recommend this property!

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, romantic getaway

a really amazing place in a more amazing location

Review submitted: March 5, 2014   Date of arrival: February 28, 2014

This place is a newly renovated home that was simply amazing. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, plates and everything you need for a dinner party. The rooms are spacious and the beds are super comfy. The entertainment system in the house is top notch - a sound system that is controlled using an ipad, a giant LCD TV in the entertainment downstairs that has netflix, apple tv, dish network that is surround sound. An outdoor grill and outdoor fireplace that is easy to use. Every room in the house was well thought out when this place was renovated. definitely a place to stay if you're visiting SF!
