About George

I'am a 5th generation San Francisco native who has renovated and restored this classic SF Victorian Home to it's original glory. Pictures do not do justice it was built in 1875 and is one of the first homes in the Marina/Cow Hollow district. Come and enjoy it's the best!

George purchased this house in 2012

Why George chose San Francisco

I really love this home. It's just a great combination of San Francisco History,built in 1875, with the San Francisco of today. The photo is from the Marina which is a short walk from Scott Street. All that come here enjoy the location and history that this property has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Location, safety, views, great restaurants nightlife and shopping. Reviews by travelers confirm all of this.

Perfect Choice! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for our "3 generation" girl's trip to the city and it was a fabulous choice. It is spacious and has tons character. The location is perfect! It is close to all the tourist attractions but far enough away that you aren't surrounded by tourist. We walked to the market and enjoyed a few of the restaurants in Cow Hollow, we used the get around app and drove to Muir Woods and Sausalito, we rode the trolly to Union Square and toured Alcatraz. George was very accommodating and friendly. We had a wonderful time! Thanks George!

Fabulous SF weekend wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights in this wonderful house for my daughters wedding and it was perfect! The home is very comfortable and clean with everything you need to entertain and relax. The host showed us the home at check in and was easy to checkout. The neighborhood is fantastic, walking distance to market and many restaurants, shops and bars. Beds were comfortable and the house was decorated as if we were staying with friends. This is the house the bridal party prepared for the wedding in and it made a nice background for photos, nice quiet backyard garden and close to the GG Bridge. Would stay here again!

A most wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, sister and brother-in-law, mother and father AND our 5 mo old all stayed at George's place for 4 nights when we came from NY for a family wedding. The house and location were just PERFECT for exploring the city; close to parks, the bridge, the marina, grocery, pharmacy, dining.

Lovely, sunny garden, house appropriately stocked. Parking in front.

All went smoothly and we intend to return!

Thanks a ton to George!

Great location, great backyard, great owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. The neighborhood and proximity to downtown are great. It has a wonderful backyard to sit in and enjoy. And George is as helpful and responsive as he could be. For the sake of full disclosure, and hopefully to be helpful to George, I must however add that the old bedroom drapes , dining room table and some of the other furnishings make the place feel a bit "tired". And bath soap should be provided. Overall, however, it is terrific and you'll not find a better person to work with than George.

Everything was fantastic. The cooktop needs some attention; only two burners worked properly.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family stay following our son's wedding in Big Sur. The location was best for the activities we had planned; Giants game, trip to the zoo, tour of Alcatraz, day at Muir Woods and beach and many of the local restaurants. Plenty of room and the parking space in front was a big help. Home was beautifully furnished and kitchen was well equipped. Thanks George for all your help. No question in that we would use this listing again.

Wonderful stay in SF

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in SF at this Cow Hollow home. It is very spacious with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The style of the home is classic - old world. The location is fantastic. I was there with my three kids. We all had tons of room. There are two queens, a king and double bed - I believe. Blocks from Chestnut Street and Union Street - you have shopping and restaurants. You are about a 20 minute walk from Fisherman's Warf and the Alcatrez Depot. Super easy to get around SF also. Palace of Fine Arts is a 10 minute walk. Really you have it all at this location. The home was very clean and offered lots of kitchen supplies as well. We enjoyed our stay and will return.
