About the owner: Oxford Manor has been in Eric's family since he was a child and so he takes special pride in it's upkeep. Holly and Eric both grew up in the Bay Area and first met at a picnic when the were young children. Now married and in business together, they decided to make their newly renovated home into a vacation rental upstairs and renovating the apartment downstairs as well.
Why the Owner Chose Excelsior, San Francisco, CA, USA:
It has a very homey feeling about it. It's pretty close to all different locations of the city and bay area, so once you get a feel for your way around, you can get to lots of locations in no time. This is located in the sunny weather area and it is a nice place to just relax, as it is in the city, but in a quiet neighborhood with lots of parking, near a big park. An area yet to be discovered with views of Mt. Diablo and the SF Bay in the distance. A great place for families and friends on vacation or business associates in for trade shows.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have taken the time to restore the home ourselves. Each room has a theme. The living room is the San Francisco Room. One of the bedrooms is the Sausalito Room and the other bedroom is the Hall of Flowers. The Sun Room leads out to the backyard garden and is right off the Sausalito Room. Downstairs if the private Rosewood Suite. It's just a fun place to come home to and relax watch TV and or enjoy the peace and quiet the neighborhood provides. There are redwood forests two blocks away in the second largest park in San Francisco. Get out, breathe the fresh air, see views across the bay from McClaren Park. Walk around the lake, it is beautiful! Please not late Parties....
