Bedrooms 2
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 3 - 30 nights


About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Imagine sipping your morning cup of coffee while enjoying the beautiful views from our custom designed San Francisco home. Located in Diamond Heights, the property sits high on a hill above Noe Valley and Glen Park and is the PERFECT place for a peaceful getaway for professionals, corporate executives, or vacationers.

Every room is BRIGHT and AIRY with sweeping views of the SF Skyline & Bay or the Sunset District out to the Pacific Ocean. The Living Room, with fireplace and balcony, has spectacular views of downtown and the Bay Bridge, as does the second bedroom upstairs. Offering all the comforts of home, amenities include a guest computer with broadband wireless internet access, a full entertainment center with a flat panel LCD television, cable and unlimited complimentary Netflix Instant Download Movies, a baby grand piano and a small library of contemporary and classic books.

The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, industrial gas range with indoor grill, super-quiet dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee and espresso maker, electric kettle, rice cooker, food processor, water filter, spices and more. The expandable dining room table seats up to 10 people.

The master bedroom is located upstairs and has a king sized bed, television with DVD/VHS and balcony with views of western San Francisco out to the Pacific Ocean. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, a futon, TV with VHS and a full view of the SF skyline and Bay. All beds are super comfortable.

The upstairs bathroom has a skylight, a jacuzzi-style bath tub and the downstairs bathroom has a shower.

You will also have free unlimited long distance phone calls across the US and Canada and free calls to anyone worldwide with a Skype account.

Located just 10 - 15 minutes by car from downtown, you can quickly get to popular destinations such as Union Square, the Moscone Center, and the SF Giants' ballpark. Any part of the City is accessible within 20 minutes or less, including Golden Gate Park, Golden Gate Bridge, The Presidio, Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf.

Just three minutes from the freeway (280), the house offers easy access to San Francisco Airport (15 mins), Oakland/Berkeley (30 mins), Stanford University and Silicon Valley (30-45 mins), Sausalito, Tiburon, and Mill Valley (30 mins); other popular destinations are also within driving distance, including wine country (Napa/Sonoma 1 hour), Carmel/Monterey (2 hours), Lake Tahoe (3 hours) and Yosemite National Park (4 hours).

A car is useful, but public transportation is available two blocks away. Local amenities such as 24-hour Safeway, restaurants, bank, post office, coffee shop and parks with playgrounds, hiking trails and tennis courts are all available within walking distance.

Unlike most of San Francisco, there is a driveway to park your car, as well as ample street parking!

This is the best accommodation value in San Francisco. If you compare our rates with a hotel, remember they charge on average $30 for parking per night, plus the San Francisco hotel tax and the sales tax to the rate quoted by the hotel (14% plus 8.5%!!). Our rates include all taxes. So why stay in a pricey San Francisco hotel or sterile corporate apartment when our home offers twice as much for half the price? Deal directly with the owner, not an agent or property manager and enjoy your home away from home.

If you are interested in staying in our beautiful home, please send us a little information about you and your party, as we like to get to know a bit about our guests. Thank you!

About Ria

We love to travel and find that staying in homes is a much better way to experience a city than in an impersonal hotel. We love this house very much and so want to share it with others. It's a beautiful place to take a break and yet feel like you are on top of the world!

Ria purchased this townhome in 1997

Why Ria chose Glen Park

We bought our home here because of the amazing views and easy access to all parts of the city, as well as the north, south and east bay.

What makes this townhome unique

Diamond Heights is a well-kept secret in that it is close to everything, but you are on top of the world. It is quiet and peaceful and a great place to relax and unwind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the condo. The location is GREAT, so easy to get to the BART. The condo had everything we needed for our get-away. Beautiful furnishings and very comfortable.

We will be back. Thank you !!!!!

overall pretty nice . . . but needs some love

  • 4 of 5

Pro's: spacious; easy parking; comfy beds; fab views, very clean; Safeway in walking distance; village of Glen Park is charming (about a 15 minute walk) with good restaurants and BART

Con's: Needs some love & updating to be considered luxury: white carpet on stairs and upper floor is pretty gray where trafficked; ready for new paint on walls; utensils and glassware kind of mismatched leftovers; TV & audio dated. One of the two bedrooms has a couple of folding doors that don't provide optimum privacy.

Owner's Response: Hello Jake, Glad you were comfortable at our place. Yes, you are quite right. We have been planning to do some renovations including new TVs etc. Just been so busy getting our daughter off to college, but hope to do so soon. Thanks. Rié

Well-furnished apartments with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for 6 days during our visit to San Francisco. The views of this apartment are amazing and we could stare at it all day. Ria is really thoughtful and had prepared a welcome gift. The apartment is well-stocked and beds were very comfortable. We had a lovely stay.

Wonderful home - great location and views. Everything a holiday home could need.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in San Francisco and enjoyed staying at the Glen Park property. Area was vibrant and property had great views. House finished to a high standard with lovely, comfortable beds and a kitchen with everything we needed. Rie was helpful and responsive to all queries and had thought of nice welcoming touches such as chocolate and wine. Neighbours very friendly and area felt safe. Thoroughly recommend this home to friends and family and would come back again.

Great accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed two nights while seeing San Francisco and the location and accommodations fit our needs quite well. So much nicer than a hotel. Beds were great. Very clean, neat and convenient. Only giving it 4 stars only because living room seating wasn't very comfortable.

Lovely home and great location

  • 5 of 5

Very positive experience. The home was well appointed, clean, great location with wonderful views of the city. The owner provided detailed and very helpful information regarding the facilities and the surrounding area (markets, restaurants...). We would definitely stay there again when we return to SF.
