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!

Move-In Condition

  • 5 of 5

It doesn't get much nicer than this place. The property is 100% exactly as pictured. The only things the pictures can't capture about this place is the extraordinary city view from the upstairs skylights and just how quiet the neighborhood is. I don't think we heard a single sound from outside in the four nights we were there. If you have been to this city before you know how unusual that is.

The owners left the fridge stocked with the essentials, which we really appreciated as we arrived late at night and thus didn't have to go out first thing in the AM for coffee or juice or anything.

As a prior reviewer stated the only possible drawback is the amount of stairs from the street to the living quarters, but that is the case everywhere we have stayed in SF and this place had a lot fewer stairs than many of the other properties we have visited.

Book this place with total confidence, you won't want to leave.

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
