vacation rental description

Your home away from home! NoPa is a neighborhood where you can immerse yourself in the rich history of San Francisco. You will be surrounded by San Francisco's famous Victorian houses. So much that even San Francisco tour buses have regular stops in the area. The neighborhood features a unique balance of family life and hip dining scene.

This 3 bedroom / 2 bath unit is located in a three unit Victorian house on the 2nd floor. The first floor unit, also a 3 bedroom / 2 bath, is also available. Please check out VRBO listing #573692 to see the 1st floor unit. Both units can be rented to make a 6 bedroom, 4 bath place if you have a large party. You will be close together.

Each unit occupies an entire floor. This unit has everything you need to feel at home, including:

- 56 inch HD TV

- Expanded cable channels

- High speed Internet via Wifi

- In-unit washer and dryer

- Backyard deck and extra large garden (Note this is not private. It is shared by three units)

- High end mattresses and bedding for a comfortable sleep

- Fully equipped kitchen, including dishwasher

- Sofa pull out bed

- 2 full bathrooms

The neighborhood is highly sought after even by local San Franciscans. It is charming and has all living essential stores within walking distance, including: Bi-Rite Supermarket, Madrone Art Bar, ATM, bank, dry cleaners/laundromat, copy store, hardware store, restaurants, bars, etc.

Tourist attractions include: the Painted Ladies, Alamo Square Park, Golden Gate Park, etc. It is centrally located to San Francisco tourist attractions and one block away from 4 major bus lines and 5 blocks away from 8 bus lines. You will find Zipcar stations within 3 blocks. You do not need a car.

Parking is not available with this property. However, there is decent amount of street parking. Street parking does not have any parking meters or time limits. Car is not recommended as parking is expensive in the city and public transportation is really good. The city is small and packed and so taxi fare to most tourist attractions are within $20/ride. If you do need a car, there is a zipcar lot 2 blocks away. You can rent car by the hour or by the day.

Please email or call me if you wish to book. If this property is unavailable, I may have other similar properties available.

traveler reviews for this san francisco condo rental

Met expectations

Review submitted: July 9, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

We stayed in this home along with another family over the 4th of July holiday. It was everything we were wanting and expecting. The home was very clean. The layout is very accommodating for multiple families. The updated kitchen was stocked with cookware and utensils enough that we were able to make all the meals we wanted. We love that the bathrooms are both in the hall, and not in any of the three bedrooms. We did not have a problem finding parking across the street and around the corner. Once parked, we used public transportation for the duration of our visit. The owners were very pleasant when we spoke with them on a couple occasions. We hope to stay at this property again in the future.

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

Perfect for multiple family getaway

Review submitted: July 9, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

We selected this unit based on price and location to City Hall (We were in town for a wedding and needed to be nearby). Location: The location is great if you don't need to be right in the action. The Muni makes stops at several nearby locations. The Big Bus Tour also has a stop nearby (highly recommend if you are new to the city). There is a fantastic grocery store, coffee shop and restaurant just a block and half walk. Also, located near Safeway within 8 minute drive. Just around the corner is a smaller local shop for coffee, wine and other essentials.

Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies are just around the corner. We found the location of the unit to be perfect for us. A $2 fare on the Muni will take you anywhere you need to go. We did not explore the BART option.

We opted to drive for this trip as we needed the cars for the wedding. Parking is task but can be done. Accommodations: The unit is well equipped. The two bathrooms in the hall made it convenient for 3 families to use easily. The two bedrooms on the street side do get traffic noise so opening the window at night may not be an option. The 3rd bedroom overlooks the garden which is lovely. The pull out couch was comfortable for 2 kids but could also fit 2 adults. The kitchen is well equipped. We were able to prepare a meal for 12 with no problems. We used the grill in the garden as well which was very convenient.

The large TV was enjoyed by the men and kids. The washer and dryer are efficient. The bathrooms each offer a shower (one has a shower/tub). The beds are comfortable and rooms very spacious. Plenty of towels/wash clothes provided.

We had 5 adults and 3 kids in the unit. We had enough space to spread out and did not feel cramped at all. We did have guests over for a celebration so my only comment would be maybe adding one more chair to the living room. Other than that we were all very comfortable.

I read some comments about the condition of the unit. We have stayed in vacation rentals around the world. It is to be expected that short term rentals will not be in the condition you may keep your own home. This unit is a Victorian Flat in San Francisco, it wasn't built yesterday. The unit was clean and neat with all the uniqueness of a older Victorian home.

We had one emergency with the plumbing which was the fault of no one just normal wear/tear. Sylvia and James were taking care of the problem before we even arrived back from the day. We experience no inconvenience.

Central location but the place could use improvements

Review submitted: June 19, 2014   Date of arrival: June 6, 2014

Our two families were very excited about staying in San Francisco without having to spend a fortune. Given our budget and desire for a central location, the quality of the rental should not have been a surprise.

The place was central with bus lines only a block away which made getting around the city pretty easy. Another great feature is that it's about a block away from the stop where all the city bus tours drop off for Alamo Square.

The bathrooms were clean and kitchen was good except for the fact that the handle on the faucet was missing.

It slept 6 comfortably, but the couch not very comfortable for the other two.

Unfortunately, the cable connecting the DVD to the TV was missing as well which didn't allow us to keep the kids busy with movies.

If you're trying to stay within a budget and want to stay central to the city, this is a good place. Just make sure to manage your expectations :)

The owners were very nice to work with and allowed us to check in late on the last day.

Recommended for: families with young children, sight seeing, tourists without a car
