Inner Sunset house description

Enjoy a spacious home with comfortable queen-size beds, ocean views from both bedrooms, and many amenities. Easy on-street parking within 1 block!

Our two-bedroom home was built in 1936, and has hardwood floors, crown molding, formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen (with everything you need to prepare full meals), and romantic wood burning fireplace. In the center of the house there is a glass-ceiling atrium, filled with palms, anthuriums, and other tropical plants. There are spacious views of the Pacific Ocean and Marin Headlands from each bedroom, with gorgeous sunset views (when it isn't foggy, of course!).

We love bed and breakfasts, and have included many of their amenities, including thick fluffy towels, high quality soaps and shampoo, a 52-inch plasma TV (for Netflix, HuluPlus and DVDs only--no regular television), and free coffee and teas. In the event you arrive late and can't shop, we provide milk and cereal to get you going in the morning. Our comfy queen-size beds have thick mattress pads and comforters, and 500-count cotton sheets.

Although ours is officially the safest neighborhood in San Francisco, we provide a small safe which you may use to store your (small) computer and other valuables. And there is an inflatable bed in case you wish to stash a child or two on the living room floor to sleep.

Our home is furnished in a comfortable, eclectic style, with items collected over the years from travel, auctions, and gifts from friends and families. If you happen to be a PG Wodehouse fan, you are in luck; we have a great collection of his books, as well as many other authors you may enjoy.

Every neighborhood in San Francisco has something to recommend it. We love our neighborhood, the Inner Sunset, for its great shops and restaurants, quiet wide streets, and lovely parks. Garrison Keillor, host of 'A Prairie Home Companion' on NPR, recently listed the Inner Sunset as one of the four top places to visit in San Francisco, along with Golden Gate Park (4 1/2 blocks from our home), Muir Woods and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Our area is safe and quiet, with low housing density and good on-street parking. In the 18 years we have lived here, we never parked more than one block from the house. There is good access to downtown and other neighborhoods via the N Judah trolley line, 2½ blocks from our house. We are about 12 blocks from the renowned UCSF Medical Center, for those who will be visiting family there.

This part of the City has many large parks nearby, which offer beautiful, secluded walks, large trees, many great music events, museums, and much more.

After a long day of work--or sightseeing-- it's great to walk on the beach (ten minute drive from house), then go to one of the numerous inexpensive restaurants within a short walk or drive of our home. On one of those cold, foggy nights, just hunker down at home, light the fireplace or watch a movie and order takeout.

We want you to have a great stay in the city we are proud to call home. We live in a separate downstairs unit, and are always willing to help with maps, suggestions on places to eat, and things to do.

                  Wonderful stay in San Francisco! 07/26/2012

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:


                  My stay in San Francisco was enjoyable, largely due to the fact that I stayed in this lovely 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home in the Inner Sunset neighborhood. The owner of the home personally left a handwritten note to welcome my housemates and me, and he even came to visit to ensure we had everything we needed! He was very responsive to text messages and phone calls, which made preparations for (and our actual stay) very pleasant.

                  The home was well equipped with supplies. There were snacks available to munch on, cooking utensils, extra blankets/pillows, toiletries, a safe, internet access, maps, movies, books, and all I would need to wash my clothes and dishes.
                  We were located very close to wonderful restaurants, which were within a short 3-5 minute drive. We could hop on public transportation within a couple blocks of the house to get downtown and to other parts of the city, which were very convenient. My housemates rented a car, and it was so easy for them to find free street parking within a block of the home.

                  Overall, this was a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the San Francisco area.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: We are long-time San Francisco residents. We live in a separate unit downstairs (don't worry; lots of soundproofing between us) and are available for assistance. We enjoy hosting friends and family, and showing them our adoptive city. Our beloved dalmatian, Penny, lives with us, along with her little mutt sidekick, Bella.

                  Why the Owner Chose Inner Sunset:
                  We love the Inner Sunset neighborhood as it offers lots of parks, and easy access to the ocean and downtown, as well as to the wine country. It is a safer, quieter and less-congested neighborhood than much of San Francisco, yet offers many excellent shops and restaurants. Major public transportation 3 blocks away. On street parking always available within one block.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is a charming house, offering privacy and great views, lots of architectural details, and about 1500 square feet of space. The atrium, where we grow our tropical plants, adds a lush, colorful space in the center of the home.
