Why The Owner chose Richmond District

We purchased this home because of of the lovely neighborhood feel it has within the bustling city. Its close proximity to the Presidio National Park and quick access to Golden Gate Bridge and all that is beyond was also a factor for selecting this centrally located home.

Luxury, Culture, and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This Pied-de-Terre has everything you could want and more! Mimi is an excellent and thoughtful hostess who has paid attention to the smallest details. Everything in the rooms has been cleaned to perfection, even inside the drawers! As you enter the kitchen you are welcomed with fresh fruit, delicious baked goods, gourmet coffe and teas! The kitchen is well stocked with a variety of kitchen wares, utensils, and supplies.. There is a spacious and comfortable sitting room with eye catching artwork, magazines/maps, Netflix, should you choose to stay in and enjoy a movie, and WiFi availability. In the inviting bedroom area there are two dressers with an abundant amount of storage, bookshelves with an assortment of books in several languages, and beds with high quality linens that are ever so comfortable. There are extra linens, towels, and blankets in the closet along with beach towels and umbrellas! However, the piece de resistance has to be the spa! After a full day of adventures you can come back and choose either a luxury soak in the gorgeous freestanding soaking tub or an invigorating shower. You will also find various sundries, a blow dryer, and soft, fluffy white towels to wrap up in afterwards. Mimi has truly thought of everything, is easily contacted should you need anything, and responds promptly. . We will absolutely, without a doubt, stay here again!

The Pied-a-Terre was the perfect place to call home during our stay in San Francisco.

  • 5 of 5

Mimi’s rental is the perfect combination of comfortable and modern chic. The space is clean and well suited for longer stays. The living area is big enough to stretch out and easily feel at home. The owner adds personal touches that make you feel so welcome. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted the best place to create mementoes and the Pied-a-Terre achecked all the boxes. The best part is the quaint back yard where you can view her beautiful gardens and escape from a big day of sight seeing. Quiet neighborhood location. We will definitely be going back.

Our family of four enjoyed a week in SF. Mimi and Mark were great. We had a nicely stocked fridge with soda and cool drinks. Mimi left some gluten free cookies and bread from a local bakery that were wonderful. The neighborhood is so quiet and safe. We walked to get coffee each morning and everyone around us so polite and friendly. We had a clogged toilet and Mimi took care of it in the late night adventure (thanks again Mark!). It was so quiet we wondered if anyone else was even around. I highly recommend staying here. Right near everything and no noise or crowds. Thanks again to Mimi for renting us her place.

Awesome property!!! 5 Star +++

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to settle into for the week. Impeccably decorated, outfitted and spotless. Mimi is extremely responsive and I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to spend a night or a week in SF. Better than staying in a hotel but with the amenities of a hotel...bath products, crisp linens and nice touches (high-end coffee, stocked beverages and a couple cookies/slices of cake to welcome you!). Only drawback is street parking can be tough but there's a parking garage a couple blocks away. Thanks Mimi!

Terrific girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a spectacular stay in Mimi’s home. She provided little touches that made us feel right at home. We even enjoyed sitting in her garden admiring her green thumb while enjoying the rare San Francisco sunshine. The property is conveniently located 1/2 block from Muni so it was very easy to get around.
