Property description

Both the first and second floor flats of this 3 unit building are available for rent. The second and third floor units share an entrance into the house (the property manager lives on the third floor). Once inside, there is an additional locking door that enters the second floor flat. Each flat is a 1600 sq ft independent vacation home with 2 bedrooms, 1 Japanese tatami mat which serves as an extra single bed and 1 bathroom each.

Both first-floor and second floor are two bedroom flats in an original 1911 Edwardian house located in the center of San Francisco. Restored by the owner, the house has all the details of a classic turn-of-the-century San Francisco home, with all modern amenities.

The house is located between Duboce Park and the famous Alamo Square. Within walking distance are some of the city's greatest neighborhoods for exploring: the Castro, the Mission, Hayes Valley, the Fillmore and the Haight-Ashbury. Half a block away is lower Haight Street, filled with one of the city's most eclectic concentrations of unique cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops.

Public transportation is right outside the door to connect you to the entire city, and the MUNI is accessible in a two-block walk, from which you can easily access the Financial District, Union Square, the Embarcadero and North Beach.

These unique flats have original hardwood floors and parquet throughout, accented by brass fixtures. Towards the front of the house are the foyer, living room and dining room, which feature 12-foot ceilings and stained glass windows. Period details such as original molding, stained glass windows, and 25 pivoting windows throughout make this house a special find.

The black-tiled bathrooms feature both a claw foot tub and a marble shower, with a separate WC across the hall. The two comfortably appointed double bedrooms in each flat have bay windows, which get full sunlight from morning to midday. The linen closet is stocked with plenty of linens and towels.

The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, dishwasher, full-sized fridge with water filter, coffee maker, blender, cooking supplies, and cabinets stocked with necessities for cooking. There is a separate utilitarian prep kitchen with second sink and butcher block, by which you access the back stairs down to the backyard.

PRIVATE GARAGE INCLUDED: enclosed single-car garages adjacent to house are included with the rental at no additional charge. Take advantage of the safety and convenience of having your own garage, whether you are driving or renting a car during your stay. Be sure to specify if you will need the garage when you inquire.

Comments sent in from previous guests:

'We spent Thanksgiving week at the flat on Steiner this year with our family and had a great time. It's in a great location and convenient to lots of things. The parking spot in the garage is also nice, as parking is challenging in SF! We loved the flat itself - it's old and wonderful - comfortable beds and a good kitchen and dining room for a family to gather for meals. It served as a great home base from which to explore San Francisco. I'm glad we came here rather than spending a week in a small hotel room. We would love to be able to return in the future!'

-- The Grays from Texas

'This trip we wanted to avoid SF tourist areas and instead desired a neighborhood for our family vacation. The apartment is old and charming, with beautiful wood moldings, antiques, and large rooms. The kids found the space of a home and we loved the location. Parking on site was so helpful, but we often took the bus and trains and walked.'

-- Margaret Chapello, Hinsdale, IL

'We had a fantastic week in San Francisco! Our stay in your place was great - worked out perfect for us as a home away from home and a base for our stay.'

-- Vic Redding, Kailua, Hawaii

'Two friends and I just spent a week at the flat on Steiner Street. The location was perfect - convenient to bus lines, stores and restaurants. The apartment was roomy and comfortable. We would certainly return and recommend the accommodation to friends.'

-- Maryellen Cronin, Boxford, Massachusetts

'Just wanted to let you know how perfect our stay at the flat was! It was nice to be able to spread out into a big space instead of being cooped up in a hotel room. And the area was cool! There were a ton of great places to eat and it was so convenient to the MUNI. Thanks again for letting us stay. It could not have been better.'

-- Christina P., Largo, Florida

'This isn’t a bed and a room, it’s a home from home and an experience. Breakfast in the sun sitting at the kitchen bar or in the dining room - this is a cook’s kitchen and the supermarket is just down the road. You can plug in your laptop and stay ahead of your e-mail or run your business. At the end of the day, lie on the sofa listening to music or watching TV before turning in to sleep in peace and comfort. I’ll be back.'

-- Lesley Harwood, Wellington, New Zealand

'We loved every minute that we stayed in your wonderful home. It came with everything any family could want and more. Thank you for having it there for families to find, stay and enjoy San Francisco from, it was a great home base.'

-- The Stewart Family, Texas

'Our family has recently spent 5 nights at Steiner Street and the description given by its owner and the comments made by previous guests are an understatement. The apartment has everything one could think of to make a stay comfortable, not to mention the space. To be able to sit in the back yard on balmy evenings enjoying a glass or two of Californian red wine before walking less than 5 minutes to any one of a half a dozen reasonably priced restaurants was better than home. That is unless you decide to stay in and prepare a meal in the wonderfully appointed kitchen. There are even sharp cooking knives! Should we ever have the chance to return to San Francisco, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.'

-- Thracy Vinga and Family, Melbourne, Australia
