About the property

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

This rental property has applied for, but is not yet approved for, short-term vacation rentals by the City of San Francisco. 30-day minimum reservation is required. The first week is $1,500 and contact me for variable pricing for the remainder of your stay depending on the month. Select your dates on the calendar which has been updated to show the dates already reserved for my personal use.

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 counter top 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 sofa bed also sleeps 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 Scott Seamands

I've lived in this home since 2013.

Scott Seamands purchased this house in 2013

Why Scott Seamands 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.

wonderful and charming.

  • 5 of 5

Aunt Irenes was just as pictures show. It was clean and quiet and 1 block from the beach. It was perfect size for 4 adults and we did not feel like we were on top of each other. Area is nice and there is a good ice cream place within walking distance. We were first time visitors to SF and enjoyed it so much. It was approx 40 min Uber ride to fisherman's wharf area. There is a bus right outside but I am not familiar with SF public transportation so it was easier for us just to use Uber. I was told BART was simple to use though. Would definitely recommend.

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!

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.
