A perfect place to relax with family and friends

  • 5 of 5


We stayed in the Shaffer's wonderful property on the occasion of our daughter's wedding. The house was spacious, spotlessly clean and very nicely appointed. It's central location also made it very easy to get to the Union Sq. area for the rehearsal dinner, to the Dolores Mission for the ceremony, and to the Presidio for the reception. We very comfortably entertained family and friends at the house before and after the wedding and the spacious, open layout made the perfect backdrop for pictures of the bride, bridesmaids, and family as we prepared for the ceremony. The picture of our daughter in her wedding gown, looking down from the spiral staircase with an expression of mock disdain is priceless. And in SFO, the parking spot in the private garage just around the corner was priceless, too. It made running errands and shopping for last minute items super easy. Just the perfect place for our stay.

Beautiful home and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, modern, upscale and quiet. Only negative is that the master bedroom on the second floor can get very warm as the only ventilation is through two of the six skylights that can each be cracked open 6 inches. Fortunately, the evenings for us were in the fifties and I managed to hang a fan from one of the open skylights to bring in air.

We stayed in the home with my daughter and her husband and their 2 children. The two downstairs bedrooms could also be masters as they each have their own bathroom and are very nice.

The kitchen was fully equipped and came stocked with supplies and some food items.

The owner and caretaker respond almost instantly to any request. We definitely would stay here again.

Beautiful house with parking and window covering problems.

  • 4 of 5

The house was great but the upstairs master bedroom did not have any window coverings and no one could sleep up there. Also parking is a major problem. This area only allows 2 hour parking. Ask Reggie for a parking spot. He sometimes can get one. He was great. Unfortunately I gave the garage spot to my friend and my car for towed;( otherwise it is a beautiful home.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that light through the upstairs skylights interfered with sleep. Skylights in the residence are usually appreciated for the great views afforded of the San Francisco skyline and beyond. Two other bedrooms on the main floor are available for light sleepers. Concerning parking, we provide a secure indoor garage space for our clients.

Lovely apartment, great concierge, thoughtful welcome package

  • 4 of 5

Only thing stopping this being 5 stars is there are no blinds/curtains on the top floor bedroom (or in the sitting area) and they are too light in the other bedrooms. This means it is too light in the mornings (by about 5am) and then too hot during the day/evening while the downstairs is too cool. Sort this out and you get a 5 for beds, furnishings, design, ambience and a great concierge.

Owner's Response: Great suggestion. We will find skylight shades that do not interfere with views of the sky and the city skyline.

Better than pictured!

  • 5 of 5

This home is delivered to you in pristine condition and is an architectural gem. The pictures don't capture the Wow factor that you experience when you first walk in. Reggie greeted us when we arrived with a bag of groceries to ease us into our stay and was tremendous. Can't say enough good things about him or the house. It was exceptionally comfortable for a family of four and can easily handle more people. Great location - quiet and safe neighborhood with surprisingly easy walks to the Presidio, the GG bridge, the Wharf, or Union Square. We'll stay here again next time we visit!

Great house & amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house located in a residential area of San Francisco. The house was clean and had all the amenities for our comfort such as shampoo & soap. The best thing about this rental was that the manager went above and beyond to stock the house with snacks, beer, fruit & basic breakfast foods before arrival. I would highly recommend this rental!
