  • Gorgeous HomeAway from Home!

    "This home is exceptionally gorgeous. So much so that I didn't want to leave. The interior is furnished with exquisite taste. You just feel happy being there. One night before going out to dinner we decided to relaxed on the charming patio with a glass of wine and enjoyed some nice cheese as well. Afterwards, we took a short walk to Chestnut Street and had dinner at Izza's!! A delicious steak House restaurant! I also recommend; Mama Mexican Restaurant, Lucca Italian Deli, and Over the Moon for the best ice cream in SF. There are so many more great restaurants on Chestnut and Steiner. All within walking distance. And the Marina is definitely within walking distance. You can even walk to the Golden Gate Bridge which is a little farther. I would say a lot of people young and old prefer to walk everywhere in the Marina District, especially when the weather is great, just like on Sunday, July 10th. Our last day in SF. But since our flight was at 10:00pm, we had plenty of time to walk on the GGB, 1.7 miles and we also, had time to visit the museum Legion of Honor! All before returning home to Los Angeles. We look forward to our next HomeAway and stay at this incredible home!!! I can't wait!!"

  • Comfortable, quiet, convenient and well equipped. Highly recommended.

    "San Francisco is quite expensive for any type of accommodation. Vivian's studio is modestly priced and it's 30-40 minutes by bus into the city. It's very conveniently located with multiple bus lines within a few minutes walk going to the city, the beach, south or north. Unless you have mobility issues, you won't need a car and you're probably better off without one. The neighborhood is great. It has a nice suburban feel without having to walk far for anything . There's a medium sized supermarket within 5 minutes walk plus plenty of smaller stores, cafes, restaurants, etc nearby. The wonderful Golden Gate park is only 10 minutes walk away. Vivian is a great host; she walked us through the studio showing us where everything was, talked us through her rules (which are very reasonable) and gave us good tips on public transport, cafes, etc. The studio was very clean and looks even nicer than the photos. The kitchen doesn't have an oven or stove. However, with the addition of some microwave safe cooking containers (I left one behind) I was able to cook pasta bolognese for dinner one night and beef tacos another. There is a small toaster oven, a toaster, coffee maker and a kettle (a necessity for making tea!). The fridge is a good size and there is a large water filtering jug which makes the water much nicer for drinking). The bathroom is clean and well appointed with various shampoos, lotions, medicines, etc available that you might need but may not be likely to carry on holidays. The Wi-Fi was reliable and fast - we had 3 phones and 2 tablets, sometimes all running at once and there were no problems. Vivian was happy to print some Alcatraz tour tickets for us that we'd bought online. The double bed is very comfortable and there are plenty of pillows, blankets, etc. We required 3 beds so Vivian provided a double air bed which I found surprisingly comfortable. The lounge folds out into a single bed however the hinge doesn't flatten out completely so there's a bit of a ridge in the middle - some may find this uncomfortable - if I had a choice, I'd use the airbed and leave the lounge upright. The neighborhood and the studio were very peaceful and quiet. There was a bit of noise from upstairs when Vivian's family were getting ready for the day or coming home but it was not intrusive in any way. The outside deck was being re-built while we were there - there was a little bit of noise at times from this but no inconvenience."

  • Lovely hosts. Beautiful home with exquisite garden area. Wonderful neighborhood. Easy parking.

    "This flat is located in a wonderful neighborhood, walking distance to great local restaurants, cafes, ice cream shop, etc. It is also just a short drive to the Embarcadero, Mission District, downtown SF and only ten minutes from SFO. There is a beautiful quiet garden out back, perfect for reading or enjoying a glass of wine. We had an absolutely wonderful weekend here."

  • Perfect place to stay

    "We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed this home so much. The location is perfect, you step out the front door and just down half a block you have Fort Mason with a great walking/running paths and beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge. You are a close walk to many attractions that you will want to visit. Great restaurants and shops on Chestnut Street. The Safeway grocery store is just a block away. Very quiet street and enjoyed all the house had to offer. We had plenty of space and appreciated having a full kitchen, dining room and living room space. The Master bedroom is huge and the bathroom is very nice. We enjoyed the balcony off of the Master bedroom. We took an Uber a few times and was a very efficient way to get around the city. Laura was wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions before our stay and had great suggestions on what to do while on vacation. We would love to stay here again."
