About the property

Beautiful Victorian Private Home in the heart of San Francisco

Comfortably furnished restored Victorian home with 2 car garage perfect for a family or two couples. Walking distance to fine restaurants, cafes, Golden Gate Park, major bus lines and clubs. Shopping (Bi-Rite and Faletti's grocery) bakery, and farmer's markets are just two short blocks away. The house comes completely furnished with all the comforts of home. Basement (street level) contains a 2 car tandem garage (garage space for more than one car by special request)and laundry with large washer and dryer. On the first floor there is a large living room with a Steinway Piano (in tune) and compete audio video set up with high-speed wireless internet. The large formal dining room can seat from 6 to 12. The very large gourmet chef's kitchen has high ceilings with an eating area and office space. Large clerestory windows look out onto a terraced private garden. There is a half bath off the kitchen entry. On the second floor is a completely remodeled full bath with glass shower and separate tub. The master suite has a sleeping alcove with a queen size bed, walk in closet and large sitting area. The Bay window in the sitting area is a perfect place to relax, escape and read a book. The second bedroom has a double bed, small writing desk, dresser and closet. The third room is used as an office but has a day bed which can be opened to sleep two. The house is quiet with all the charm of Victorian San Francisco without being stuffy. It has great access to downtown via public transportation, cable cars, parks, museums, and an easy bike ride to the ocean. It's only a short walk to the Haight Ashbury. For baseball fans there is AT&T park on the Embarcadero with our World Champion San Francisco Giants (in years past)

Can't imagine anything better

  • 5 of 5

As we told our hosts Susan and Tom, "Wow. To say jaw-dropping is an understatement. Your home is just stunning." This turn-of-the-20th century Edwardian is perfect in every way. The modern kitchen is fabulous, and truly lives up to the often-overused "gourmet" description. The garage parking space for 2 cars is a HUGE plus! The garden sitting area is a piece of heaven in the middle of the city. And the neighborhood is loaded with fabulous restaurants, shops, grocery and more, all within a few blocks walk.

The four of us (two couples) agree that we just can't imagine how anything could be more perfect, and the warmth and hospitality of the hosts can't be topped. They actually share their whole *home* with their guests (when they are away) and it feels like you're at home in the process. Only occasionally available, this gem is one to grab if you have the chance. We feel privileged to have had that opportunity.

Thank you Tom and Susan!

Wonderful San Francisco week!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic place for a week of family fun. It is exactly as described, very nicely preserved but updated where needed (ie: kitchen & baths). The beds were comfortable and everything was extremely clean. The back garden was an oasis with flowers and humming birds and the kitchen is furnished with everything a cook could want. The location was perfect. The Muni bus ran on this street, there was a full service grocery store about 4 blocks away and there were many restaurants within walking distance. Also, it is only 5 blocks to a Big Bus HOHO stop. We had no issues whatsoever and would love to stay again.

From the moment of booking I knew I had chosen the right place. Tom and Susan were so accommodating. Their home is beautiful and very clean. I could not have been more comfortable. I would highly recommend the lovely home to anyone planning a trip to SanFrancisco.

Superb location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 3 friends in this house. The owners are more than kind and helpful. We choose the house for location, because it has 3 bedrooms, a garage and the pics. In real it is fabulous in every way!! The house is very well kept. The rooms are more than nice. The kitchen is super, it's like being in a greenhouse without the atmosphere! A great advantage is the garage if you have a (rental) car. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The neighborhood is very nice too with lots of nice shops and decent grocers. Walking distance from Market/Castro with on the way splendid view over downtown. If you rent this house with a couple of friend is it a much better 'investment' than a couple hotel rooms with loads of space. I really recommend this property. I certainly want to be back there!!

One of the highlights of our trip to SF!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 all agreed that the house was one of the highlights of our spring break in San Francisco. It is spacious, comfortable, clean, and centrally located, and it ranks as the best of the VRBO homes we have rented over the years (there have been at least 5 others, all good to excellent). The photos don't do it justice. The Steinway baby grand piano was a hit with our 2 kids who both take lessons back home. Who would have thought they would enjoy practicing so much on vacation! There is a very large doll house that our 11-year old daughter enjoyed playing with. The owners met us upon arrival and gave us a thorough explanation of everything we would need to enjoy our stay, and there is also a thoughtful notebook full of local restaurant menus, maps, etc. The full-sized washer and dryer allowed us to travel light. The neighborhood is safe, and the house is a block and a half away from a busier street with a bus stop, restaurants, and a couple of really nice small groceries. We will recommend staying here to anyone we know going to San Francisco!

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our stay! It is very spacious and has been furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen is really well equipped which enabled us to cook for ourselves; there is a store a couple of minutes walk away which sells great food! The garage was great and came in very useful for maintaining our bike! Tom and Susan Munn are extremely helpful and were a pleasure to rent off!
