Dear Charles and Brian,

Thank you for letting us use your house. The views were outstanding and the interior was contemporary and modern. It was perfect for us. My wife's parents had no problems with the stairs. Thanks again.

A True SF Gem on top of Nob Hill!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 4th year having the privilege to stay in such a lovely, spacious and comfortable SF Victorian.

I always feel very well taken care of and the owners are always happily at your disposal should you have any queries.

It is truly part of the SF experience , including all and more of the amenities for a long stay along with a truly excellent care taker and cleaning team.

I truly feel it is a home away from home.

Magnificent experience every year...not to outdo Mother Nature and the spectacular views of the Golden Gate , the bay and Pacific Heights.

A treasure and , of course, the glorious sunsets!

This is our second stay in the beautiful Victorian on the top of Nob Hill. Once again Brian and Charles delivered!

Not only is the home in an exclusive area of SF, with the cable car line right at the footsteps of a cozy and private lane, with supermarkets and other services at a short walk's distance, it is the attention to detail and care that distinguishes this home as a unique vacation/corporate rental from any others we have visited. You live like a true San Franciscan .

Not to mention the fabulous view room with nearly 180 views from Twin Peaks to just about Alcatraz...unforgettable views of the GG bridge during sunsets and the fog rolling in....unforgettable!

Not to forget the new state of the art appliances just put in ( fantastic washer/drier....better than going to the cleaners) along with a silent was so silent, I could not tell upon using it for the first time that it was on!

This is truly a large, beautiful, comfortable and all around well maintained classic SF Victorian with modern touches to make it feel modern, but yet maintain it's original feel

We already are booking are next stay...can't wait!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazing property! The photos of the view from the Golden Gate room do not do it justice, it is incredible to sit on the balcony and enjoy the stunning views. September is a great time of year to visit this area, our weather was fabulous, and this is such a great location to have as a base. We had all the amenities we needed in this very comfortable property. We dealt with Brian and he was great, thanks for the info you sent, it was really helpful and we tried a couple of your restaurant recommendations! Oh and the steps, hard the first day, running up them by the end of the week!
