Bedrooms 2
Space 1,425 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom With Ocean View Close To The Beach

THE 30 DAY MINIMUM STAY IS A REQUIREMENT - NO EXCEPTIONS. This rental property has applied for, but is not yet approved for, short-term vacation rentals by the City of San Francisco. Therefore renters must select at least 30 nights at $150/night. Select your dates on the calendar which has been updated to show the dates already reserved for my personal use. Feel free to email me about the 30 days you would like to stay and I'll see what I can do to accommodate your request.

Original hardwood floors and many many furnishings dating from the early 1950's when Aunt Irene first bought this house. Enjoy the corner window with breathtaking views of the ocean and sunset.

Fabulous new kitchen appliances and granite countertop in the kitchen, along with a breakfast nook set in a charming 1950's style checkerboard tile floor.

The bedroom configuration is one with California King and one with a Queen bed. The living room sofabed also accomodates two, so up to six guests can spend the night.

There is a piano, fireplace (not to be used for fire) and a dining area.

The bathroom contains all new fixtures in the style of this 1950's era-home.

The backyard includes a deck with access from the kitchen and a stairway leading to a large open landscaped area filled with sand and polished pebbles. When you don't have the energy to walk one block to the beach, you can still enjoy the sand right in your own backyard!

There is one parking space available in the garage for a small or mid-sized car. Larger cars should plan to park on the street where spaces are usually available nearby.

About Leslie W.

I've lived in this home since 2013.

Leslie W. purchased this house in 2013

Why Leslie W. chose San Francisco

The neighborhood is quiet and I like being next to the ocean. The nearby shops and restaurants give the neighborhood a lively feel, which I enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the blond wood furniture that was so popular in the 1950s and that checkerboard kitchen floor.

Great place in great location.

We are a family of five (2 of them being teenagers) and we fit fine. Location made it easy to drive to sights or hike. Uber from Fisherman's Wharf runs around $35. Hope to be back one day.

Comfy spot with great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a 5-night stay for our San Francisco vacation. The home is very nicely set up, for comfort and convenience but also well furnished. We liked being so close to the beach (a safe and easy walk) and had several neighborhood spots just up the hill we enjoyed for coffee, burgers, and pizza. Perfect for a family getaway! I had a question when we arrived, and the host responded immediately and was very welcoming and helpful.

A beautifully kept home with bags of character and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Aunt Irene's house over Christmas 2016 and into the New Year. We are from the UK and, as our son is studying in San Francisco and living in Sunset district, we wanted somewhere close to him where we could stay. Having looked through all the potential properties, Aunt Irene's house was perfect for us and it also had the added advantage of being close to the ocean.

The property is well equipped and spacious with double aspect windows which provide a view of the ocean. There is a heating/cooling system which enabled us to stay warm (we had perfect sunny weather while we were there but it did get chilly once the sun went down) and in addition my sons were very impressed that Netflix was also available! The beds are very comfortable and the shower has good pressure (better than ours at home!) It was like a home from home and I even cooked a full roast dinner on Christmas Day!

It is a very quiet and peaceful area but has shops and restaurants close by and in addition is well served for public transport into the city - we used the number 7 bus (one block away) and the N line Judah tram which is four blocks away. There are beautiful places to walk locally with wonderful scenery - we went along the beach, up to Land's End and even Golden Gate Park which are all relatively close by.

Scott was extremely helpful and answered my many questions as well as being accommodating when I requested extra towels for my son and wanted to check out a little later on the day of departure.

We had a wonderful time staying here and I would thoroughly recommend this property.

Peaceful, in a Neighborhood, with Ocean Air

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed wonderful 5 day stay at Aunt Irene's, which is one block from the Pacific Ocean in the Outer Sunset, where I spent a lot of my spare time walking on the beach. Although it's a ways into the city center, it was relatively easy to get private or public transportation and get around, and I easily found what I wanted nearby. The unit had everything I needed and was about exactly what I expected. The owner even had the piano tuned before I got there, which was a wonderful surprise. Thank you!

Perfect location. Very comfortable. Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed everything about this rental. We highly recommend it. The location: Muni system right outside your door, great restaurants and stores up the street. Quiet neighborhood. The description states the beach and stores are a block away, but we found that California blocks are half the distance of New England blocks (good to know for planning your trips into the city). The home: Beautifully appointed with warm colors. everything you need is provided. The beds are extremely comfortable! The bathroom shower pressure will make you want to stay in there forever! Tips: The City Pass is well worth the money, as we used it everyday and saved a fortune! Taking an Uber from the airport was only $48.!!! The produce store up the street, easy to walk to and carry your purchases, has everything that you could possibly need. It was a pleasure to stay in Aunt Irene's house. You can sense the owner truly cares, as he was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this home rental for your family vacation.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review! Thanks, Georgine. Good to know that our blocks are shorter than New England blocks, but ours are often rectangles so they may be shorter in one direction only. I like the nearby restaurants and shops too. Very convenient for quick purchases. The Safeway is also an option for major supermarket needs, and it is just 17 "short" blocks east of the house...which is about a five-minute drive. Hope you can come back soon! Scott

Great base for San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my wife and two teenage children, the apartment was ideal for us. The area is surprisingly quiet as there is not a great deal of through traffic, really enjoyed the peace and quiet and it was great to be able to chill out in the evening after a busy day sightseeing.

Easy to get into the city centre, we used the N line muni which is 3 or 4 blocks up, a short walk, and gets you into union square area in about 40 minutes, easier and cheaper than trying to take the car in.

A few minutes up the road by car or a 20 minute walk is a Safeway which was handy, plenty of options if like us you are doing a bit of cooking.

Where you stay can have a real affect on your holiday, this was a great choice and enhanced our stay in San Francisco, I'd not hesitate to recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review, Gregor. I am glad that you used Muni to get around town. It is a good system and since the house is close to the beginning of the route, a seat is always available. Much less stressful to let someone else drive! Hope you can come again soon.

Car: not necessary

The Sunset district is San Francisco's southwest quadrant and this house is located one block from the beach. Surfers and other beachgoers stream by the house every day in search of a glorious day at the beach. Many restaurants are within walking distance on Noriega Street, the main street in the district.

At the north side of the Sunset district lies Golden Gate Park, which contains many attractions and is larger than Central Park in NYC. At the south side of the Sunset district lies the San Francisco Zoo. The entire district spans almost 800 square blocks and features many of San Francisco's top-rated restaurants featuring cuisine from all corners of the world.

Access to downtown is readily available via Muni bus (the 71 passes by on Noriega Street) or via streetcar (the J or L cars are both within a few blocks of Noriega). All of these routes end up downtown, where you can walk to Chinatown, the Financial District, North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, etc.

The City is a walker's paradise (and it can be a drivers' nightmare) so consider walking and using public transportation. Simply Google your desired location and follow the simple directions.

The house features a parking garage for one car if you choose to bring a car.
