Living the life!

  • 5 of 5

The property was at least as spectacular as the pics. Stan and Reggie saw to everything we needed and added channels to tv when we were hoping to watch the Ryder Cup as we were there for a one week golf bucket list trip. It was absolutely spot on for three guys and would be for 3 couples as well. We parked our rental car in Stan's garage space and opened our first ever Uner acct. common area upstairs and down were excellent.

Upstairs suite included fireplace and jacuzzi tub as well as soft lighting. Downstairs bed/baths were quite comfortable. High ceilings downstairs created an expansive feeling.

The list of neighborhood restaurants helped a lot and we had an amazing dinner at Sociale?

There was no downside for us but disabled or step challenged should find a different unit.

I cannot recommend highly enough

We were totally relaxed and felt right at home as soon as we arrived.

Reggie the property manager was the best VRBO property manager that we have had the pleasure of dealing with, thank you Reggie.

Thank you Stan for providing a superlative residence for your VRBO clients.

Our stay at Shaffer's Post House in San Francisco

We enjoyed our time in SF. The home was meticulous and luxurious. There were 6 adults so convenience of 3 ensuites was a huge plus. The host and his manager were very helpful. I highly recommend this property. Thank you

More than we could have imagined

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed at this lovely home in June for 8 nights. Stan was so accommodating to make it convenient for us, Reggie is absolutely amazing. Reggie had some items I had requested there to make our arrival special for our anniversary. Reggie was full of wonderful suggestions of places to eat. We really just enjoyed chatting with Reggie. The location was perfect for us as we enjoyed walking in the neighborhood & catching the bus. This is the perfect house for anyone of any age.

Thank you for a wonderful trip Stan & Reggie. :-))

Just Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a 4 day vacation in San Fran! It was absolutely gorgeous & looked just like the photos on-line. Extremely comfortable, spacious, and superbly decorated. Great location in the city! The caretaker, Reggie, was a huge help to us! We would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a stay in this beautiful city.
