Great, comfortable home in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Juliette for 2.5 months in 2017/2018 and loved it. The location is incredible, especially if you have kids—it's less than a block to Golden Gate Park, a few blocks to the Presidio and an easy walk to the beach. We didn't know much about the area before we stayed there and imagine it's not on many tourists' radars, but we'd absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting SF in the future. There's great coffee within a couple of blocks and some really great food in the neighborhood, too.

The home itself it super comfortable—we found it very spacious for three adults and a newborn baby. Having 2.5 bathrooms was fab. Other highlights included the master bedroom wardrobe and bathroom, and a very large and well-equipped kitchen. Juliette is lovely and a wonderful host; on a couple of occasions our appliances stopped working and she had them fixed straight away.

One very minor nit: the entrance to the garage is very narrow, so we had some trouble driving in and out before we became used to it.

Thanks Juliette for a wonderful staycation in SF!

A wonderful spacious flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this flat for visiting family following the birth of our son. We liked it so much we ended up staying there too, even though our apartment was twelve blocks away. It felt like home, and we were sad to leave.

Wonderful, spacious, and clean apartment in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My parents stayed at Juliette's apartment for the month. They were very comfortable there. Juliette was incredibly helpful in getting them set up and was communicative throughout the month--checking in to make sure everything was okay.

The rooms were very comfortable with en suite bathrooms in each. The kitchen, dining room, and living room were very big and clean, which provided a great place for them to eat and hang out.

Juliette was a great host and we felt very welcome in the apartment. She met us there when my parents arrived and was very easy to get in touch with if we had any questions or needed anything.

I would highly recommend Juliette's apartment as a great place to stay in San Francisco. The Richmond location is perfect (steps from the park) and the apartment itself is lovely.

Beautiful house by the Park for Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovey family Thanksgiving . Our adult children and their friends all traveled for the occasion.We cooked on Thanksgiving in the professionally equipped kitchen. The home has plenty of natural light and is wonderfully cozy with heated floors. This home is so close to museums, park trails, and events. Thank you Juliette and Molly we enjoyed your hospitality.

Hope to see you again,

Ann, Harry and Peanut Butter😍򓐽𚐩

Excellent location near Golden Gate Park

  • 5 of 5

Had a meetup with the parents in San Francisco, and this apartment was a great home base. We walked to the park for the DeYoung and the Japanese Garden. Buses and Uber were convenient. If using the bus to come from SFO via BART, consider the 28 from Daly City because that is the start of the line, and you should have no problem getting a seat on the bus. Also, we used the Caviar app to have food delivered. (Delfina's Pizza was amazing!) Our trip coincided with the World Series, and we were ever so grateful for the DVR. Molly is such a great dog! The only negative is that it would have been nice to know the garbage schedule. It was frustrating to lug the trash downstairs, only to find that the garbage then had to be hauled back upstairs and outside! (Also since cleaning eggs, etc off of stainless is such a pain, I have to say that a dish brush would be a great idea for the kitchen.) Thanks again, Juliette!

A wonderful home away from home in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to host friends from England, with whom we shared a lovely week in Somerset, and were very pleased that we chose Juliette's flat in the Golden Gate Park area. It is beautiful and the furnishings are of high quality. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner (we did some of each). Both bedrooms are very comfortable with the master bedroom especially roomy (great closet space). The only problem we encountered was parking, because the spaces on 15th are usually taken and are very small due to the many driveways. We were able to park on 14th and that worked all right, except that the morning when they do street cleaning we were 8 minutes late in moving the car and received a $71 ticket. All in all we had a lovely stay, and we enjoyed many of the City's attractions despite some unexpected showers. Having Golden Gate Park so close by is a real bonus. We recommend this VRBO location highly.
