About the property

4 bedrooms

This gracious family home in San Francisco’s Laurel Heights neighborhood features 4 full bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and sleeps 7. The two story house is thoroughly modern, yet comfortable. The house is quiet, and boasts a sunny yard and deck and two car parking. All bedrooms feature new Sealy Posturepedic mattresses and blackout shades so you’ll be sure to get plenty of rest. We are open to longer term rentals; please inquire.

All four bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor. The Master Suite features a large walk-in closet, queen-size bed and full bath with soaking tub and shower. The remaining 3 bedrooms share a lovely recently remodeled full bath. One has a queen-size bed, the 2nd has two twin beds and a third has a single twin bed. Packnplay available upon request. We can also provide some toys and games for little ones; just ask in advance and we can deliver them to the house before your arrival.

The light-filled kitchen features a Viking range. The small family room is connected to the kitchen and features french doors that open onto a deck with stairs to the sunny, flat yard below. A large dining room with hand-painted ceilings and seating for 10 will make every dinner feel like an event. A living room with gas fireplace

The house is located in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood, with easy access to the Presidio, Golden Gate Park, design and clothing shops on Sacramento Street, the bustle of Clement Street. Two (flat!) blocks away from Laurel Village Shopping, featuring 2 wonderful grocery stores, Starbucks, Peet’s, restaurants. 3 wonderful parks within easy walking distance - Presidio Heights, Laurel Hill Playground and Rossi Playground - offer lots of places to take the kids and meet other families in the neighborhood. Easy access to downtown via two different bus routes, with stops located 2 blocks from the home. Also easy to drive downtown, to the beach, north across the Golden Gate bridge (Mill Valley is only 15 minutes away!).

High-speed Wifi, Netflix and Hulu+ (via AppleTV) and basic cable television are included in the rental; there is one television located in the family room off the kitchen with seating for 5 adults (or more if kids). All linens and towels are provided. The kitchen comes fully equipped with silverware, plates, pots, pans, cooking utensils and electric appliances – but those who don’t want to cook or use the kitchen have ready access to a variety of restaurants in Presidio Heights, Laurel Village, Clement Street, and Geary Boulevard ranging from Japanese, Italian, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Pizza, Mexican, American diner and French cuisine - all within a few blocks of the home.

The home also includes:

Washer/Dryer conveniently located on the same floor as all 4 bedrooms

4-bedrooms - sleeps 7

Two and one half bathrooms

2 car parking (for security reasons, no garage door openers are provided with the rental unless you have a long term rental, but you can easily open the side door and press the opener button in the garage).

Interaction with Guests

We usually interact with guests only by email or phone. We are happy to help with preparing for your trip, but we respect your privacy. We live nearby, and in an emergency, we can typically be at the property within 30-60 minutes.


The home is available for long term or short term rentals; please inquire about multi-month or annual leases.

House Rules:

The House Rules incorporate a Liability Waiver (please see below) - acceptance of the House Rules, and the Liability Waiver incorporated therein, is a condition for booking a stay at our property. We will be happy to email you a copy of the Liability Waiver on request.

Guests have access to all parts of the house, except for the cellar located below the garage.

The house lends itself to entertaining but is NOT a party house - like most other places in the City, the neighbors live within close proximity. There's fast internet access throughout the house, and there are plenty of entertainment options, including Netflix. However, there is only one television in the family room off the kitchen and only basic cable. If you are a sports fan and can't live without watching your team, there are several sports bars just a few minutes away on Geary Blvd and Divisidero Street.

Please limit eating and drinking to the kitchen and dining room (and of course outside!); no eating or drinking in family room, living room, or upstairs. Please treat the furniture as you would in your own home! There is absolutely no smoking in the house, backyard or on the deck.

This house is ideal if you want a quiet retreat, conveniently located after a day of hustle and bustle in the city - we hope to welcome you!

Unless otherwise agreed upon, check out is at noon and check in at 4PM. We’ll try to be flexible - please check in with me and we'll see what we can do.

7 overnight guest maximum - no events with more than 10 guests without prior permission - no parties please, but hosting a dinner is absolutely fine - please check in with me in advance and we can discuss.

We marked the house as kid friendly, which means we allow kids - it does not mean that the house is child-proof. Please be careful, and ensure that your children are safe. In particular: children are not allowed in the garage, backyard or on the deck without close supervision by a responsible adult. Please be careful and NEVER let your children into the backyard without close supervision by an adult.

No pets please.

No outdoor entertaining after 9PM - again, please be reasonable and keep the noise down - we get along with our neighbors and we'd like to keep it that way.

There's absolutely no smoking allowed in or around the house.

Why abbey doolittle chose San Francisco

We love the neighborhood and still live nearby. This is a wonderful home and presents a great opportunity for families traveling to San Francisco, or those already living here who are undergoing a remodel and need a place close to home.

What makes this house unique

Our house is sunny, quiet, and despite being located in the midst of all the city has to offer, has views of trees and greenery from all windows. It feels like a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
