vacation rental description

This charming one-bedroom couldn't be more centrally located. Golden Gate Park, Haight Street, Alamo Square's famous "painted ladies," the USF campus, and UCSF-Mt. Zion Medical Center are all within a short stroll. So are a wide variety of restaurants, bars, and cafes. Several major bus routes are literally steps away for easy access to the rest of the city's attractions such as Fishermans Wharf and Union Square.

And yet it's also a serene private retreat from the urban bustle. Set far back from the street on the ground floor of a converted Victorian carriage house, it's secure and off street with a gated driveway. The included parking space is right outside the entrance for ease and convenience. A small alcove wall garden, with a serene cascade fountain at the entrance is the the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or relax after walking your dog. A large sundeck at the front of the property offers panoramic views of the neighborhood.

The cheerfully modern interior includes all the comforts of home: a ridiculously comfortable queen-sized bed, an elegant convertible king sofa bed, free wi-fi and flat-screen TV with cable, a fully equipped kitchen, all linens and towels, and a laundromat is just a few steps around the corner. It's ideal for a solo business traveler, a couple on a romantic getaway, a small family on vacation, or a home base during treatment at the nearby medical center.

Questions? The owners live in an adjacent house and will happily offer recommendations to make your stay even more enjoyable.

traveler reviews for this san francisco townhome rental

Convenient, capacious and with a charming host

Review submitted: April 3, 2014   Date of arrival: March 27, 2014

With a daughter in San Francisco, we fly in at least a couple of times a year. We've tried hotels, B&Bs, and now VRBO. For us, this location was perfect. The 1 BR flat in which we stayed was on the first floor of a two story carriage house. The main house has a deck in front, overlooking the street, to which we had access. The flat itself, because of its off-street location is quiet. The bed is comfortable. Having access to a full kitchen meant that a quick trip to one of the many near-by convenience stores allowed us to stock up on breakfast items and snacks, saving some money and the inconvenience of eating every meal out. Public transportation options abound, but if you're driving, there's off-street parking right in front of the carriage house. Location-wise, since it's in NOPA (North of the Pan-Handle), it's convenient to several great parks...Alamo Square, Buena Vista Park, and of course, Golden Gate Park. We are walkers, so we walked to all these locations, but we could easily have taken a bus or cab. Our host, who lives in the main house was friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. While the flat itself is seeing some wear and could use a little freshening, we still give this rental five stars because of the other positive factors.

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Feeling Like Natives!

Review submitted: October 20, 2013   Date of arrival: October 3, 2013

Loved the carriage house. The only downside, .....the upstairs apartment is bigger and so there were at least 4-5 people above and they were very heavy footed. What would make the stay more perfect: ask the people upstairs to remove their shoes and leave them just inside the front door! (We have stayed in other properties that asked us to do just that!)

Owners response: Thanks so much, so glad you enjoyed your stay.

There is a posted sign in the upstairs to remove shoes in the house. Almost everyone does so but some people think signs are for other people, unfortunately. See you on your next trip to the city!

Can I think of enough superlatives?

Review submitted: October 2, 2013   Date of arrival: September 23, 2013

I've just checked all the boxes to recommend this property to everyone! The description at the site was spot-on, everything was clean and well-maintained. We were delighted from the moment we walked up to the door and saw the little patio with chairs and table, and continued smiling until we turned in the keys. We appreciated the detailed guest book with instructions on how to open the sofabed, the security gates, etc., and the additional binder with suggestions for activities and even a selection of restaurant menus. The upstairs neighbors were considerate, and we especially enjoyed the young boy who waved enthusiastically whenever we crossed paths.
A special note for older travelers or those with disabilities--if you walk up the steepish drive, you can avoid steps altogether. The bathroom isn't set up for severely mobility-impaired (no grab rails on toilet, for instance,but most people won't have difficulty).
If you have tickets for the hop-on hop-off bus, the Alamo Square stop is within walking distance. Taxi to Fisherman's Wharf is about $15-$16 before tip. There's a bus stop nearby but we didn't use it.
We did a lot of sightseeing, but the short time we spent in the neighborhood was fun, and a nice contrast to the more "touristy" areas. You can easily walk to restaurants, get your hair cut, go to the Laundromat, order a pizza, find a convenience store if you're craving fresh fruit or need a Band-Aid. We thought it would be a great location to live in!
We came via Amtrak, but there is parking available, a real plus for those driving.
In summary: We loved it, we'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't require a luxury hotel with room service and a pool, and we wish we had stayed longer. If we do return to San Francisco, we hope to come here again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
