About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Office, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to SF Vacation Abode! Located one block up the hill from Dolores Park in the Dolores Heights/Liberty Hill District, this beautiful flat was built in 1915 and has been meticulously renovated in a modern and contemporary fashion. It is centrally located, a stone’s throw from Noe Valley’s 24th Street, the Castro, and the hip Valencia/Guerrero/Mission Street corridor.

The flat is conveniently located close to all modes of transportation, including the J Church Muni line 1-block away and freeways 101 and 280 (including 3 “zip car locations”). It is a short distance to hip gourmet restaurants, shopping and Whole Foods, Bi-Rite Grocery and Mollie Stone’s gourmet food markets. The flat is fantastic for families and couples because of the layout; bedrooms are on opposite ends of the condo and there is an incredible amount of space.


* 1600 square feet (149 square meters), Newly renovated
* 2 Bedrooms (1 King and 1 Queen), 1 Bathroom

Behind the updated Edwardian façade, you’ll find a spacious, 1600 square foot (149 square meters) flat filled with natural light. There is beautiful period detail, combined with refinished hardwood floors and designer lighting throughout. There are two spacious bedrooms, located at opposite ends of the flat for ultimate privacy!

The front bedroom boasts a queen-size bed and the rear master-suite has a king-size bed. There is a sitting/dressing room off of the master-suite for additional comfort. The layout of the unit is perfect for couples and families because the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the flat. Adjacent to the living room, separated by sliding pocket doors, you’ll find a large sitting room, complete with a desk and twin-size daybed. The bathroom is remodeled with a bright orange, restored 6 foot Victorian iron claw tub! There is a full shower over the tub and a custom vanity.

Hanging out in this beautiul and conveniently located flat 10/31/2013

VRBO Bear stayed here:

This SF flat could not have been more perfect! Alan was a fantastic host – He greeted us upon our arrival, showed us everything we needed to know around the flat and provided recommendations for our time in the city. The check out process was just as easy and overall, the entire experience was seamless.

Not only is the interior in superb condition, the modern décor made it even more enjoyable. The abundance of natural light combined with the gorgeous views of the city made it difficult to leave the flat each day! Between Dolores Park across the street, a quick walk to Valencia, the Mission, the Castro or a 15 min train ride to Downtown, you can easily access everything SF has to offer from this perfect location. Some of our favorites that were in walking distance include Bi-Rite Creamery, Pizzeria Delfina, Tartine Bakery and afternoons in Dolores Park.

Can't wait to plan my next trip so I can book another stay at the SF Vacation Abode!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I've lived in San Francisco over 25 years and currently work as a Realtor. I love my work as it allows me to explore the historical nature of our City and meet a diverse range of clientele. I chose to join the VRBO network as a way of sharing a piece of my home with visitors who come to San Francisco, who also want to experience one of the most beatiful cities in the world with a touch of local flair. In addition to renting the unit, we are always available to answer any questions and share our local expertise on good eats, fun nightlife and local hot spots. Cheers, Alan

Why the Owner Chose Dolores Heights, San Francisco, CA, USA:
Prior to living in Dolores Park, I lived in the Marina, Pacific Heights and South of Market. Dolores Park is by far my favorite neighborhood. Not only is it sunny and warm most of the time, there is a ton of 'local color.' There is no shortage of gourmet restuarants and markets, cafes, hip boutiques and you are only a short distance from downtown via muni. Highways 101 and 280 are also easily accessible.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The condo is located in one of the most desirable areas of Dolores could not be in a better location! You are walking distance to Dolores Park, the Castro, Noe Valley's 24th Street and the hip Valencia Street Cooridor. The SF Muni is one block away and you will be downtown in less than 15 minutes.
