About David

We are a retirement age couple who find ourselves away from San Francisco often these days. Although we love our home and we love San Francisco, we also like to travel. Now we rent our home to guests like you while we are away. When we are home we are usually working to upgrade and refresh our house. We know you will enjoy the results!

David purchased this condo in 1999

Why David chose San Francisco

We have lived in the San Francisco area for more than 40 years and purchased our San Francisco home in 1999. In 2001 we began to spend time away and a friend suggested we try VRBO. We soon learned that people really enjoyed our home-like atmosphere. We are thrilled with the response we have gotten and we work hard to keep our new and returning guests contented and feeling cared for. Visitors say they appreciate our knowledge of the city and our professional attitude.

What makes this condo unique

Most guests mention the feeling of a being in a real home on entering the house. We think this is because we still live there part-time and keep the house comfortable and well maintained not only for our guests but for ourselves as well. We are also proud of our garden, keeping it maintained even while we are away. We paint, scrape, clean, renew, update and replace parts of the house every time we come to visit. We think it shows. Our guests certainly enjoy our home. Read the reviews! Over 150 5 star ratings. We get these ratings not because everything is always perfect (we do try, however!) but because we go out of our way to help our guests settle in and feel at home and we respond quickly to any question. Finally, if you are bringing a car, you will absolutely love our little garage (for economy to mid-size cars). Parking rules in SF can make you dizzy. If you don't bring a car - great! - hop on the bus one block from the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. The house is exactly how it looks, and has everything from a huge TV, to a fully equipped kitchen (better than mine at home!) There are also a number of rooms (dining area, kitchen, lounge and front room); meaning even if the maximum number of people stayed it wouldn’t feel cramped. The garden was also beautiful, and much bigger than the picture suggests. I even spied a BBQ!

Lucky supermarket (a full supermarket, not just a corner shop) is a short block away. It literally had every type of food you could imagine. As the kitchen was so well stocked I did end up preparing my own breakfasts, and cooked a couple of evenings. There were many pantry items left over from previous guests, so if you wanted to cook a meal you could check before going to Lucky. I was so glad of the kitchen, as a solo traveler eating out at night seemed a bit daunting. Plus it meant I had the home comforts in a great new city.

The laptop, printer and internet were useful. Used it to order take out one night (so I could watch the first episode of Glee on the biggest TV I've ever seen in my life). Connection was great, and the laptop large enough for a couple of people to crowd round and decide what to do in San Francisco. My Mac laptop also logged on to the wifi fine.

The bus stop was literally around the corner, and using the internet I was able to print out all routes very easily. I bought a 7 day passport that gave you unlimited travel on the Muni system. However at only $2 per trip, I don't think the passport was needed. When entering the bus your ticket is valid for up to 90 minutes. The maximum time I spent traveling was 45 minutes, and that was to the zoo so travel time really wasn't long. Plus you get to feel like a native (3 times somebody asked me for directions, so I think I blended in well!!!) the closest bus was also 24 hours so no worrying about trying to get home at night.

Booking the apartment was easy, and the few questions I had were answered very quickly. Given the time difference (I am in the UK) I do wonder if David does ever actually sleep.

There was a document provided that had all info in. everything from taxi numbers, to emergency contact details and how the washing machine works.

I would definitely stay here again. Much nicer than one of the hotels around union square (and cheaper, especially if you cook some meals)

Even better the second time around

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment last summer, and were so impressed with its quality and spaciousness that we rented it again this summer. When we walked in this time, we just breathed a sigh of happiness, it was as good as we remembered. So much room! And such quality! Well worth the rental price. There are beautiful living and dining rooms, replete with paintings and prints that are wonderful. The bedroom is nicely removed from light and street sounds, great sleeps as a result. We cook as well as dine out when we're in the city, and the kitchen is large, and, again, beautifully appointed. There's a laundry room! How nice not be shoveling coins into pay machines down in the basement. We like to take buses and the three major routes out of the area get you quickly to all four compass points. A very modern Lucky's supermarket is literally a block away, and it's all flat walking (heavy groceries and SF hills don't agree with each other). Because of all these fine features and advantages, we enjoyed this trip to San Francisco even more than last summer. And, are we going to rent again? You bet! We've already booked next winter!

Enjoy San Fransisco as a local!

On vacation from England, this is our second stay in this great home in a fantastic neighbourhood. We are already thinking about visit number three, what more is there to say! We’re in the city to catch up on the latest “hot” restaurants, so being able to get everywhere by walking and the occasional evening bus is just what we need to keep up an appetite! Thank you David for a perfect stay. Tartine Foundary is a great addition on the food front.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your second stay as much as your first. Many of our guests are now repeat customers after enjoying their first (and yes, tenth!) stay. Its great you chose public transport and walking to get around. Many of our guests tell us it is much more convenient - and certainly cheaper! - than renting a car and trying to find parking in this congested city. We look forward to your next visit. Thanks for choosing to stay in our home again!

Truly wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but impressed with this beautiful home! I was in the process of moving to San Francisco and looking for a temporary place to stay. I was so happy with my choice. The location is outstanding! Within steps to some of the best/most popular restaurants in town, golden gate park and more. David keeps the home in pristine condition and was very helpful and responsive with any question or problem I had. Would highly recommend!

A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

David was the perfect host and his home in SF was impecible. Especially appreciated the indoor garage, furnished backyard and gourmet kitchen. David left copious information on what to see, where to eat and how get there - both on his website and at the house. Conveniently located to restaurants (our favorite being Central Park Bistro), mass transit, and most every activity SF has to offer. Can't wait to get back!
