Luxurious Top Rated Home +GARAGE near GGPark UCSF
San Francisco, California
Additional Location Information
Three short blocks from the Golden Gate Park Panhandle, our home is handy to four nearby parks with playgrounds, walking and running trails, tennis courts, Museums and many other attractions. One block from bus stop for Public transportation - 20 minutes to downtown San Francisco or the Pacific Ocean. Our area is called North of Panhandle or NoPa for short. Its a great new area of the city where many new restaurants have appeared in the last few years. The Panhandle is a park in San Francisco, California that forms a panhandle with Golden Gate Park. It is long and narrow, being three-quarters of a mile long and one block wide. The Haight-Ashbury District lies to the south of it. Two paved walking paths run through it from Golden Gate Park to Baker Street, one allowing bicycles. There are basketball courts, a public restroom and a playground in the section between Stanyan Street and Masonic Avenue. The Panhandle is near the geographic center of the city, and forms the northern boundary of the Haight Ashbury. In the 2000s, real estate developers began calling the area bounded by Divisadero, Fell, Turk, and Stanyan Streets North of the Panhandle or, more colloquially, NoPa.

Best Place to Stay in San Francisco!!!
Best place to stay in San Francisco!!! We went for our Honeymoon, and could not have chosen a better place to stay. It was very clean and located in the absolute center for everything you would want to do in San Francisco. Plus, it is located in a very affluent and safe neighborhood, with a grocery store and many of the city's best restaurants within walking distance. David was so helpful the entire time (before and during our stay) and made sure that our experience was free of any worries. If (I mean when) we visit San Francisco again, we will definitely stay there again. Best vacation ever!!!
This place was truly perfect for our situation, travelling as a family with two adult daughters. Wonderful quite location and yet so close to everything by whatever means of transportation (public, taxi). The apartment has it all to be very comfortable and indeed was a home away from home for us. The Lucky supermarket next door is the best. Tv, internet, telephone everything you can wish for. As for our host David, not one question and/or request was too much. He really went out of his way to help us with every question. "We'll be back" to quote a familiar other austrian if David would have us again. Read more

We´ll be very glad to have you back, also! Thanks so much for your kind words and for your support.
Outstanding home with all amenities in San Francisco
From the beginning of the reservation process, the owner was extremely responsive to all questions and the booking process. By the time of our arrival, he seemed to be a friend. The security deposit was refunded within a few hours!
This home is perfect.
It is extremely comfortable, nicely furnished with much art work, an excellent computer, telephone service, dishes, top appliances, and new linens and towels. There were even snacks and coffee provided. The garage is a real plus in San Francisco, because street parking can be a nightmare.
The location is very convenient to a supermarket and a few very good restaurants. Public transportation is a short 1-1/2 blocks away. The neighborhood is relatively quiet yet not far from the attractions of San Francisco.
The best things about this rental are the responsiveness of the owner, the spaciousness of the flat, the complete array of appliances, the computer and telephone access, and the garage. Nothing - and I repeat - nothing was lacking. Regarding the garage, be certain that you do not have a large automobile. I truly can think of anything negative about this property! Read more

Music to our ears! We go out of our way to help our guests enjoy their visit - from the first email to the last detail after their stay. As you can imagine, there are dozens of steps in between and we are pleased you appreciated our effort and, especially, that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks! David at YourHomeInSanFrancisco
From our first enquiry we were happy with our choice, David was friendly, very polite and helpful with all aspects of the booking. The apartment itself was just as described and we felt at home very quickly. The apartment was perfectly clean and very well equipped with everything ( and more) you would need,and the information pack was excellent and we used it to make the most of our stay. The garden was lovely with seating and a barbecue area. The bed was very comfortable, and the hot water was plentiful. The apartment is in a great location, within walking distance of many of the famous sights - we didn't hire a car and either walked or used the local bus.
There is a great supermarket just two minutes away and we also enjoyed the Sunday Farmers Market nearby. There is a beauty shop next to the supermarket and I enjoyed a mani/pedi there. Lots of other shops and restaurants nearby, we especially enjoyed the Bean Bag Cafe for brunch and across the road from the cafe is a cycle shop that sells beer and food. My husband cycles so he thought that was heaven!
We wouldn't stay anywhere else in San Francisco and heartily recommend this apartment for comfort, cleanliness, and convenience.
I liked best the comfort and I liked least that the apartment was a little dark. There were plenty of lights to put on, but we think its a north/south thing. In hot countries most homes are darker than we are used to, in Scotland where we live, houses are full of natural light because having too hot a house due to excessive sunshine is not a problem. Lol. This did not affect our enjoyment of the apartment it's just a different style.
We heartily recommend this apartment if you want a very comfortable holiday home in a great location.
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 11/02/2012
Thanks for your kind words. We are gratified when guests appreciate the things we do to make our home a truly welcoming space. Your comfort and peace of mind are important to us. We also realize the process of renting a vacation home can be stressful and we try to help by anticipating your questions and answering your inquiries promptly. We are glad you were comfortable and happy we put in enough extra lights to make up for the north/south orientation of the building. It is fantastic that you explored the area. The real experience of San Francisco is more than the famous landmarks (which are everywhere), but also the wonderful things you discover in a walk around your neighborhood. A great café, a good beer in a bike shop!! We look forward to your next visit. Thanks again!
Home away from home!
This is a great place, in great condition, with all the amenities, and close to everything. We spent one night at a B & B closer to downtown because the place was available on our last night in town, and it wasn't nearly as nice, and cost more. Having an apartment where you can really relax, settle in and have the occasional meal really raised my comfort level. We were a family of four - with two teenage daughters - and having some space to move around in makes a big difference. I'd book it again in a heartbeat. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 09/16/2012
And we will welcome you back in a heartbeat! Glad you enjoyed our home. Thanks!
This by far was the best place we have ever stayed!
This place was truly a home away from home. The book with all the information about the place was very helpful, all the little details given was definately a plus. We felt like you really went out of your way to assure that our stay was pleasant! Kitchen was well stocked with the necessary appliances, etc. The house was in outstanding condition, comfortable, and made us feel at home. We would definately consider coming back again. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. Read more

True home-away-from Home
After renting homes and condos for at least the last 8 years, I can honestly say this is one of the absolute nicest, warmest, homiest places I have ever enjoyed. Most places are generic at best, garage-sale quality furnished or worse. This home is immaculate, and furnished beautifully, with personal and decorate items, as well as top of the line appliances and amenities. The owner communicated quickly and was very available and helpful.
The location is terrific-- very hard to walk most places only because of the hills, but there are nearby cafes and restaurants we enjoyed, too.
The only challenge was getting rental car in and out of the small garabe-- but it was wonderful to be able to park off-steet. Read more

Ottersheim / Germany
Great - thank you !
We spent 4 days in the amazing city San Francisco and thanks to David's apartment it was a perfect stay.
It was very convenient to be there, everything was working without any problems, very clean, the whole interior furnishing is on really high level you normally don't achieve in a holiday flat.
You don't worry about anything and you don't miss anything !
The garden we used for having breakfast, very relaxing.
It is located in a nice area, good supermarket and bus stop only some foot steps away.
You can see and feel, the owner has equipped this apartment with passion and an eye for details to offer something special.
We hope to come back soon !

Tarpon Springs, Florida
A San Francisco Jewel
From the moment you enter this gem of an apartment, you will feel you have entered a very special place. The furnishings are elegant yet homey and comfortable; much of the art work is gallery quality;the entermainment systems-both audio and video- are complete, as is the computer/printer/wifi setup;the appliances are modern and well maintained. An excellent supermarket is one block away and public transport is close at hand. Several good bistro type restaurants are within walking distance. There are two "bonus" features that enhance the rental experience: a wonderful rear garden with exceptional plantings which is perfect for morning coffee or an evening cocktail and garage parking suitable for a compact car. David, the apartment owner, is an excellent host who clearly wants his guests to have an enjoyable stay. He exhibits a "pride of ownership" which is often missing in the rental business. It is a pleasure to recommend his apartment as your San Francisco home away from home. Rent it and enjoy it! Read more

Thank you so much for your glowing review. We are pleased every time we hear that our hard work and commitment to our guests results in another satisfied visitor to our home!
We were very surprised!
When we arrived, we were very surprised to find this home exceeded our expectations! Everything was top shelf. Location was perfect. Very well decorated. The back yard is very nice. David has thought of everything from the electric blanket to the free use of his computer and internet connection. Full library of Dvds to watch. Even the shower was great. Hot and powerful. We will stay here again the next time we go to San Francisco and you should too! Aaa Read more

Comfort, style, and charm in a great neighborhood
We stayed at this home for a weekend visit to celebrate our daughter's graduation from University of San Francisco and could not have been more pleased with the experience. It's only 3 blocks from USF in a very urban, walkable neighborhood. Having secure parking in the attached garage is a luxury that's hard to find with rental properties in San Francisco. Above all, the home is comfortable and tastefully decorated throughout. Most impressive was the attention to every little detail a visitor might need to fully enjoy their stay, from the informational guides for local attractions, to the completely outfitted kitchen with all the necessary utensils, appliances, and cookware. We hosted a very nice dinner and enjoyed the evening in the comfortable dining room and living room. We look forward to a return visit, and would easily recommend this rental home to anyone considering a home to rent in San Francisco. Read more

Wonderful Home - Excellent Neighborhood - Great Owner Contact
My wife and I spent five lovely days in David's home near Golden Gate Park. Very, very clean and exceptionally well equipped. Lots of light. Very nice decor. The garden was a wonderful surprise. In this home, you can truly get a feeling of living in a San Francisco neighborhood, which is what we were looking for. We found fun local shops and evening ice cream, plus the grocery just down the street. Convenient location to the trails along the bay near Golden Gate Bridge as well as to Muir Woods and the Sonoma/Alexander Valley wine country. Excellent restaurants within walking distance. The importance of the garage cannot be overstated in San Francisco. Truly serves as an excellent home in San Francisco. We were pleased in every way. I'm recommending to friends and hope to return.

Thanks for your kind words and for letting others know why our home was so enjoyable. Thanks, also, for recommending us to your friends. That's high praise, indeed! We look forward to your next visit.
We had so much fun!!!
The house is centrally located so it doesn't take a lot of time to travel to the numerous destinations in the city. The house is really nice and we felt safe in the neighborhood. We had a great time, can't wait to go back.
Bob and Becky Norris
Our week at this beautiful San Francisco home was wonderful.
We had an excellent time at your lovely home in San Francisco. We felt at home as soon as we arrived. The accomodations were comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked, and all the directions for operating the tv/dvd remotes, computer, etc. were clearly explained and illustrated. We appreciated the brochures and ideas for places to visit. A bus stop and full-service grocery store are a block away. The house is centrally located which made it easy to take public transportation and or walk to Golden Gate Park or alamo Square (Painted Ladies). We appreciated being able to park our car in the garage. We'll definitely return again!
We'll Be Back!
We were absolutely thrilled from the moment we opened the front door of the apartment. Everything we needed was provided including thorough instructions for all electronic equipment. The back yard garden was beautiful and a great place to relax and drink a glass of wine. It's obvious that David put a great amount of thought into the possible needs of their residents, even going so far as to offer two heights for the shower head--a very important feature for a tall woman.
Shopping is very convenient--a large grocery store two blocks away and numerous coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance. The number 5 bus can be picked up one block away and it takes you downtown or out to the coast. It's a great location and we definitely plan to return the next time we're visiting our family in San Francisco.
Comfortable stay in SF
This apartment is spacious enough for up to four people, very tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you might possibly need. It was our second stay in this place already and we would happily return once more on a future trip to California. The owner was very friendly and helpful towards us as well.
There is a supermarket and a bus stop just around the corner. The area is quiet and safe and only a short walk away from Panhandle and Golden Gate Park. There are also a number of good Restaurants and Coffee Shops nearby. I can only recommend this place, especially for people who like to stay in a more relaxed part of town rather than the busy downtown center.
Jan and Ken
Just what we expected ... and more!
This apartment was perfect for us. We chose it partly for the location, as we love to walk everywhere, and we certainly did that! Haight ashbury and Golden Gate Park are very close, but we also walked to Japantown, Castro and Mission, and discovered lovely parks along the way, all with glorious views.For anything further we used buses, which we caught just round the corner,and which were really easy to use. Staying in the apartment helped to make us feel part of this lovely neighbourhood, and everything we needed was nearby.
The apartment itself was wonderful - just as in the pictures, but with some very personal touches. Loved the artwork everywhere, and the interesting books.The garden room felt really cosy at the end of a long day, and it was lovely to be able to have lunch in the garden a couple of times.Above all, the owner, David, had thought of everything possible to make us feel comfortable and enable us to enjoy our stay. He was on hand (via e-mail!) to answer the slightest question before and during our stay, which was so much appreciated.
We certainly hope to go back one day! Read more

Perfectly Located, Appointed, & Comfortable
5-day vacation to San Francisco, and this flat was perfect for the two of us. Impeccably clean, delightfully decorated, and welcoming. Attached garage easily suited the rented Camry (any wider a car may trigger anxiety upon entering).
Secluded garden in back was a welcomed respite after traveling each day. Kitchen had all gourmet utensils we're used to having at home -- and charcoal grill in back allowed us to enjoy the 'summer' season in SF.
Large grocery store is within one block of home -- has everything you need in terms of great food, traditional SF sourdough breads, gourmet food, vegetarian, vegan, organic, and wine/spirits.
Walking distance restaurants are numerous and superb, especially Green Chile and Nopalito. Public transportation is convenient.
Pacific Ocean is a little over 3 miles away (on the same street).
Linens are luxurious - queen bed is superbly comfortable. Appreciated the large Hdtv, and extensive stereo system with built-in 100 accessible CD storage system.
And the communications with the owner are frequent and thorough.
Have already recommended this to 5+ friends and business travelers. Will most definitely return to SF in the future, and this will be our home in San Francisco throughout our trip.
Thanks for such a terrific stay!
Perfect house in a perfect location
Great functional house with everything you need, it was spotlessly clean with everything labelled and perfectly laid out. The sofa beds came in handy and the house was quite large and comfortable for a family of four. Very thankful for the provided laptop and internet connection. The location is great, everything is a block or two away. The park is a short walk away and great for kids. We would definitely stay again. Read more

Quiet, great neighborhood amenities, easy access everywhere
Quiet (bedroom not facing street), great Victorian row home with onsite garage parking and lovely garden. Nearby access to multiple Muni lines to make getting around a breeze; neighborhood amenities (shopping, restaurants, cafes, coffee) are great; short walk to Golden Gate park, Alamo Square (painted ladies), and Filmore Street.
Computer and wifi great for "keeping up with the office" during stay. Read more

Lovely home in a great location with everything well thought out
The house has a lovely feel to it, as if you are staying in a relative's house, very warm. The location is great, close to buses, making it easy to get around. David is very responsive and communicates quickly and is keen to answer any questions you may have or provide any information you may need. Great base in San Francisco!! Read more

Thanks! We are glad to be a great home base for San Francisco visitors.
Beautiful place, convenient location, garage spot
My wife and two small children (1 and 3) stayed here on a business/pleasure trip to San Francisco. The location is very nice; close to a Lucky's grocery store, Golden Gate park, a restaurant, and a couple of bus stops. Having a garage at the house was really convenient; we didn't have to worry about parking at any point during our stay. [As the owners warn, the spot is small, so don't expect to pull a big SUV in. We had a new Camry, which I think is about the limit of what you can reasonably fit in there.]
The house is listed as a 1 bedroom, but it has two living rooms in addition, each with a rollout bed, and with some amount of privacy available (one has a door that closes it from the other two sleeping areas, and the other has curtains). So you could easily sleep 6 at the house.
Most of the house is very nicely updated and decorated. The kitchen was very well equipped: pots, pans, plates, bowls, silverware, cooking utensils, a great electric tea kettle, coffee maker, espresso machine, toaster oven, etc.
The kitchen is a little oddly laid out, with the sink being somewhat far away from the range and refrigerator, and the kitchen is not as well updated as some of the house. But it is clean and has everything you need.
One of the living areas had a very nice computer that came in handy for planning our days in San Francisco. There's also a nice, large TV with a DVD & BluRay player. There were also many books in the bookshelves around the house, with a little something for everyone.
The shared patio is very nicely kept and could be very relaxing. It does not have much in the way of grass for kids to play in, but it's a very pleasant space.
Next time I have business in San Francisco, I'll try to book here again. We had a wonderful stay. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 06/22/2011
We are glad to know you will book with us again - it is our best recommendation! Every year we do a big renovation project to keep the house up to date (new double-hung double-pane windows throughout, new crown molding and paint, etc.) Until we re-do the kitchen we make sure we provide all the major appliances and most smaller ones also to make sure you have all you need for cooking at home. Enjoy!

The stay at this flat put our SF experience over the top!
The owners of this home outdid themselves. Everything you could possibly need or want was right there. Our visit to the city was fabulous but what made it the most amazing experience was the stay at this flat. The decor was true San Fran style. The beds were comfortable, the rooms very clean. The guest manual was the best,answered every imaginable question you might have. Every immenity was at our fingertips, we only had to bring our clothes. I already recommended this flat to a few co-workers and friends that are thinking of visiting the city. We truly felt at home. Thank you! Read more

Thanks for your strong recommendation and for such kind words! We are happy to have helped make your stay in San Francisco truly memorable.
This was our first time in San Francisco, 1st family vacation with our 3 yr old son and 1st time ever not staying in a hotel. I was nervous at first but David was very helpful and answered all my questions from the beginning.
The flat is wonderful. Very clean and neat inside. You have a garage so you don't need to worry about paying for parking or finding a place on the street. The park is nearby and so is the beach. We loved being able to walk to the supermarket whenever we needed something and there are several good restaurants within walking distance as well. We also enjoyed the garden in the back yard. Our son liked staying in the front room. We closed the doors to the dining room and the curtains to the hall and he called it "The King's room" The whole experience at this location made our family vacation comfortable and very enjoyable!
Thank you!!! Read more

Thanks for your kind words. We like knowing our guests enjoy staying in a real home instead of a hotel, especially when traveling with children. We all need our own 'King's Room' at vacation time!
Gillingham, Kent, England
Home from Home in a Lovely Neighbourhood
We are seasoned visitors to SF and thoroughly recommend this clean, immaculately presented and well equipped house in a safe, friendly and accessible neighbourhood. The owner was very helpful and attentive, both beforehand and during our stay.
It was great to be able to park our car in our own garage rather than spend hours driving around looking for a space on the street. Public transport is plentiful too with several bus routes running to and from downtown, and to Golden Gate Park and the Pacific Ocean in the opposite direction. Union Square is only 20 minutes walk away, and the park and Haight ashbury are even nearer on foot.
One great service was the ability to make international telephone calls at no charge from the house. We made much use also of the "office” containing laptop computer and printer. Both internet and wireless connections worked flawlessly, as did the satellite TV system. The washing machine and drier, dishwasher, oven, toaster, coffee maker and microwave all functioned well. There was a ready supply of toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets, as well as other basics. The only thing missing was a kettle - which has since been rectified.
We were blessed with beautiful weather, but if it had been bad, there was no shortage of reading matter or music and films to while away the hours. The Lucky supermarket, just 100 yards away, was large and fully stocked. It was so convenient, especially if we decided late that we would eat at "home”, we could just "pop” there for whatever we wanted.
The largest compliment we could pay is that we really felt "at home” here. We intended to "live like locals” rather than mere tourists, and the house helped us to achieve that. The fact that, despite our love of eating out in SF, we only did so on 5 of the 14 nights we were there, says it all.

Thanks for your recommendation! We are so glad you felt 'at home', which is the state of mind in which we like to find all our guests. Brits take note: We have replaced the missing kettle with a snappy new electric model. Since we live in our home part of each year, we are always making improvements. We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to San Francisco.

Living like a local in San Francisco
When we made our booking we were a little apprehensive as we have always used hotels when on holidays. We researched the property, did Google Earth searches and read lots of comments about the house. When we opened the front door to the residence we were astounded and definitely not let down! It did feel like home; it was clean, tastefully decorated and ready for us to settle in and enjoy our holiday in SF. The supermarket was a 2 minute walk down the road, a choice of 2 bus routes into the downtown area - 15 to 20 minutes away. Both bus stops are located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood. It was nice to return after a long day sightseeing to a comfortable home, make a nice meal, watch some TV, read a book (the house is full of them), do some washing or crash in a comfortable bed. Our stay went all too fast, but we will definitely return to see more of SF. The "House on Fultonâ€ will be our accommodation of first choice.
There were many and varied tourist brochures available and instructions on how to use all appliances. Being able to access the internet and use the phone is an added bonus and much appreciated. As you can see by the photos on the internet, the house is very well equipped but, upon arrival, you'll see just how fabulous it really is.
Thanks to our hosts for a wonderful "home away from homeâ€ in SF.

Thanks! We try hard to make our home a comfortable, welcoming refuge for busy travelers. We look forward to your return!

As David says, "your home (in San Francisco) away from home."
We've stayed in the apartment twice a year for at least three years, and are always happy to return. It's very comfortable, very well equipped, and David regularly upgrades it. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 12/01/2010
Thanks! We are especially proud of the number of guests who return time and time again. To us, it means our attention to detail and our hard work are noticed and appreciated. We try always to think how others will see and use our home and plan each time we are there to improve it with our guests in mind.
We stayed for three nights, prior to Labor Day 2010. These folks were the best prepared, and most organized I have ever dealt with. The description was accurate, and the process was flawless. The house itself was quite well furnished. The amenities were plentiful, down to the minute details. The place was very nicely laid-out, comfortable, immaculate and decorated well.
We got into the garage sub-compact, fit snugly. Back yard patio area was awesome, upstairs neighbors were cool, and quiet.
We had a great stay, and would love to come back. We rate our experience an 11 on a scale of 1-10. Thanks very much.
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 09/08/2010
Thanks! We strive to make our guests' visits easy, carefree and thoroughly enjoyable. We are happy to hear we impressed you not only with our good organization but also with our home. We look forward to adding you to our family of repeat customers.
Home away from home
For this trip, instead of renting a hotel room, we tried a rental property in a residential neighborhood and boy are we glad we did! This house is a traditional San Francisco style home built in the 1920′s. Maintained by friendly and helpful local owners, it was clean, comfortable and oh-so-convenient. It had a full kitchen, garage and a stunning backyard space. Close to bus lines and one block from a full grocery store, it was a snap to get anywhere in the city and a cozy place to land at the end of a busy day. I highly recommend it if you are visiting SF with kids. It's good for the soul and the pocket book to have a home cooked meal at the end day and space to unwind as a family. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 08/13/2010
We are happy you discovered the convenience, comfort and economies of staying in our home. We work hard to make our home especially welcoming and comfortable and we are pleased you recognized our efforts.
We are so glad you decided to rent our home rather than sleep in a hotel room. Our many previous guests agree with you that there is no substitute for a real home to relax in after running around a busy city all day long. And having your morning coffee and breakfast in your own kitchen sure beats finding (and paying for) a cafe. We look forward to your next visit.
Rode, Somerset, England
A fantastic place to stay in a fantastic city
The owner of this apartment was helpful before we even arrived there - as first time visitors to the city, we had lots of questions which he answered most graciously. On arrival, we met Richard, our contact for the duration of the stay - he was friendly & informative & helped us orientate around the property. We really enjoyed our week here; the location is great with easy access to Haight & Golden Gate Park. The neighbourhood is peaceful with a variety of places to eat & drink within easy walking distance. It is also well served by public transport for venturing further afield. Taxis are easy to access too. There is a Lucky's supermarket only 1 block away where you can stock up on provisions for your stay. The apartment itself is clean, well maintained and well equipped. So much nicer to feel that you are in someone's home! There is a nice garden area too. The owner provides a large amount of useful information & there is a computer with wireless internet access for doing further research whilst there. We would strongly recommend this apartment for a visit to San Francisco - we plan to return for a longer visit in the future & will definitely book this apartment when we do. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 08/03/2010
Thanks for your strong recommendation! We are glad to know that we helped make your stay more enjoyable by providing prompt answers to all your questions and personal assistance when you needed it.
We look forward to your next visit to San Francisco and to our home.
Better than expected
My family (2adults and 2 older children) recently spent five nights at David’s VRBO. We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations and because of all the little extras included in this home, our vacation was effortless. I was a little apprehensive about staying so far away from downtown but it turned out to be a respite from the crowds and it was fun staying in a neighborhood and away from the other tourists. The house comes with a little packet that lists area cafes, stores and bus stops with detailed directions. It was so nice to know exactly where the coffee shop was so I could walk there, half asleep, the morning after our 2am arrival. I am not familiar with public transportation but we managed the bus system quite easily with these hints and directions from the packet. I also used the website: Transit 511. After you plug in your destination, it will give you 3 or 4 different bus options. It was nice having a computer and printer in the house so that I could access this. The neighborhood was safe and the grocery store was close enough so that I could send the kids there. The kitchen was well stocked and we ate breakfast and a few meals at the house. I especially enjoyed playing with the espresso machine. Of course, now I want one of my own. The big thing that saved us a lot of grief and money was having a garage parking space for our rental car. I spent a lot of time researching this trip and finding a parking space around San Francisco is a big coup. I mentioned to David, that my only complaint was a vacation that was much too short. San Francisco is awesome. There is so much to do and everyone was so helpful. We hope to return and when we do, I will definitely stay here again. I recommend this VRBO without hesitation. Read more

What a great place to stay!
I can't imagine a smoother process. From booking, to paying, getting the keys, getting directions, finding out about the neighbourhood: an effortless flow.
The pictures show exactly what the apartment actually looks like: quality furnishings, appliances, utensils.
It's quiet. It's within walking distance of some significant sights, and there are shops close by.
We had a VW Beetle, about the biggest car that can fit into the garage, but we were well warned.
So convenient, comfortable, tasteful, and in San Francisco: what more do you want? Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 06/04/2010
Convenient - Comfortable - Tasteful. It is what we strive for and we are so glad you agree. Thanks!
A wonderful experience
We had a wonderful stay at this San Francisco rental. The flat was located in a nice neighborhood very close to Golden Gate Park and public transportation. The garage was very convenient as well. The flat was clean and well organized. I would highly recommend this flat and look forward to staying there again.
Lelir and John
From booking to the actual stay everything was great. The pre-arrival information was good and despite a slight hitch with the delay of the keys (due to volcanic ash)which was rectified and even a plan B put in place we arrived as planned for the final part of our honeymoon and a week in San Francisco. The apartment was just what we needed after a hectic stay in New York and Las Vegas. Ideally situated betwen downtown and the ocean. The instructions on local faclities and the transport system were spot on. Lucky supermarket gave us everything we needed. Enjoyed Nopalito. Papaloto and Sunday Brunch at Bistro Central Parc. All the facilities we needed were on hand and it was definitely a home away from home. We did lots of sight seeing and walking and it was great to return to a real home rather than a faceles hotel room every night. We loved San Francisco and will definitely return and have already recommended it to some of our friends. Thanks David it was great. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 05/20/2010
Thanks! We are so glad you decided to stay in our calm and cozy home after your grand honeymoon tour of the US. We are proud of the at-home feeling our guests mention after their stays. The neighborhood is great, too, for walks, cafes, and restaurants. We are happy the volcano allowed a break in the clouds so you could come to visit. Come again anytime!
Nu‘uanu Gent & his Lady
Exceeded all expectations.
From our first enquiries through arrival, the duration of our visit, and departure, our host went out of his way to respond to every query with full details and helpful suggestions. David very evidently cares deeply about his flat and goes well beyond polite graciousness in making his guests feel completely at home. And what a splendid home it was! From the bright, colorful walls adorned with tasteful, attractive art to furniture and appointments that all were clean and comfortable, this Victorian gem gleams with an inescapable pride of ownership. Decorative details include arched ceiling corners and beautiful crown moldings, beautiful oriental rugs, and an antique Monk's Table in the dining room that brought back childhood memories. The attention to detail in all respects was comprehensive, with a fully-equipped kitchen that included a broad range of appliances right down to a set of kitchen knives that all were keen and beautifully balanced. We made full use of the fine media appliances, well described and referenced in the most complete and clearly written household guide manuals I've come across. Internet connectivity was easy, and we had no trouble interfacing our personal computers with the peripherals that were present. Best of all, it was a delight to be within walking distance of everything necessary: supermarket, coffee shop, a variety of tasty restaurants, Faletti's Deli (not to be missed!) and the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park. Add to that the convenience of a parking garage and the quiet elegance of the manicured garden (but beware the Brugmansia), and what else could one require? We fully enjoyed our visit, and kudos to our host and his equally helpful agent! Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 05/06/2010
Thanks so much! We live to hear this kind of response to our home. To know you really appreciated your stay and that all our work is recognized is a treat. We look forward to your return next year.
A wonderful place. Having the parking is huge. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 05/01/2010
Thanks! We are glad you enjoyed our complimentary garage parking. We are happy you realize the value of a guaranteed parking space in a San Francisco vacation home.
All the comforts of home, and more !!!
We really enjoyed our stay at David's home in San Francisco! As others have said, we had "all the comforts of home". The flat was bigger than I expected so there was plenty of room for the 4 of us to spread out. The teenagers could watch a movie or be on the computer while we read in the front room or out in the beautiful backyard. We wanted to spend lots of time in Golden Gate Park so the location was perfect. We felt totally comfortable in the neighborhood and it was nice having the grocery store and Starbucks right down the street, not to mention all the cafes and restaurants just a short walk away. The kitchen is Big and has so many gadgets we couldn't possibly use them all. The washer/drier was really convenient. The garage was great, too. Just tight, so believe David when he says compact or mid-size only. Sooo nice to come home at night and have off-the-street parking! All our arrangements went smoothly, David and his manager Richard were so easy to work with and really cared that we had a comfortable stay. We highly recommend this rental! We will be back for sure. Thanks so much.
Two from Flagstaff
A spacious, gracious flat near park, museums, Haight St, buses
We had what we needed at Fulton Street. It is beautifully
furnished, with intriguing art on the walls and comfortable rooms. The
kitchen especially is well-outifitted. We could have folks in for
dinner in a separate dining room.
It was quiet, surprising for the
location. The garage was handy, if narrow. Once outside, one can shop
at Lucky in the next block, and catch a bus within a block or two. The
flat was spotlessly clean as well. You'd love it! Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 03/09/2010
Thanks for your recommendation! We are so glad you loved our home. Our new energy efficient windows make the house cozy and the double pane glass helps eliminate street sounds.
wonderful home North of Panhandle
Our stay at this flat was very satisfactory in all respects. The flat is very cosy,
nicely decorated, offers plenty of space and is equipped with everything you
might possibly want during a holiday or business trip. The location is perfect
for people that are looking for a rather quiet spot not to far from the city
center. It well connected with a bus line that passes just one block away from
the flat. It is also close to the beautiful Golden Gate Park. Additionally, there is
a couple of good restaurants and a reasonably big super market one block
The services provided by the owner and management are superb. Special
requests were always answered very quickly and with an extremely helpful
attitude. The price level of the flat is more than adequate compared to the
services and amenities offered there.
All in all it is hard to decide what we liked best, as we were fully content with
everything! We are certainly going to book this place again, whenever we return
to San Francisco! Read more

We look forward to being your hosts during your next visit to San Francisco.

Good Place In San Francisco
This is a roomy well done flat with a well maintained garden and a garage.
Very well equipped and an easy place to stay for an extended period.
Good location with a large supermarket a block away and a gourmet market
four blocks walk. A few restaurants nearby.
Responsive management and fresh flowers upon arrival. Nice touch.
Nicely appointed/Well stocked
From initial contact with owner, David, to prompt return of our security deposit, this rental experience was very positive. This is a large, nicely appointed home in a great location. It was clean, comfy and well stocked. We've already recommended it to friends. (Also recommend "Nopa"
restaurant located within walking distance). Read more

We are happy you had a great experience renting our home and that you are already recommending it to your friends. We can think of no higher compliment. Thanks!
a perfect stay
We're dreaming, when we first stepped into the apartment to set everything up for the arrival of my parents the follwing day, we couldn't believe it. We were dancing and screaming.
It wasn't a dream, or should I say it was a lived dream for two weeks.
I'm an au pair, I work here for one year and my parents visited me and stayed in this real gem. Located in a "San Francisco-house" and you feel like you live there since ever. It is quiet, but central, there's a shop (Lucky's) where you get everything nearby, the bus station is also just around the corner and the bus-line brings you downtown without changing.
We liked the best, that there's everything you need or more, you open a drawer because you look for scissors, and they lay there. You can use the computer and the phone for free, the contact to the manager and the landlord is so easy and you feel so comfortable just to write emails with them. The garage's perfect for a little car, you don't need more in SF anyway. My dad loved the garden, we enjoyed the last warm days in November.
Sometimes it was hard to get out of the apartment because we slept long, laid around and most of the evenings we cooked at home or my Mom cooked for me my favourite meals, there's not only a microwave, like my dad suspected, there's everything you need a stove, aoven, a huge fridge, a coffemaker and a microwave. :)
The only bad thing was to say goodbye, to the apartment and to my parents.
We felt at home, thank you so much. Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 01/12/2010
Thanks! We are thrilled to know how much you enjoyed our home. We know that people put a lot trust in us when they travel so far, not knowing exactly what they will find when they arrive. Your letter lets us know how important that trust is. We try very hard to make every guest feel they have a real home in San Francisco from the minute they walk in the door. We are glad you felt the same.
the perfect house
The house we rented in SF had everything we hoped for: clean, comfortable, nice furniture, kitchen appliances excellent, towels and linens of the finest quality, all necessities and extra nicety provided. We enjoyed the beautiful art work throughout the house and the garden a place to relax. Good location to catch local transportation
and access to the garage an added bonus. We recommend to rent this house and are passing the word around to our friends.

Perfectionist World Traveler
Boston and Paris
On a scale of 1 to 10, this place is 1,000!!!
Whether first-time or veteran renters, this gorgeous, quiet home in San Francisco will exceed all of your expectations. I'm heading back for my 4th (or is it 5th?) stay! The location is central and superb; it's quick and easy to get to Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, Pacific Heights and other tony neighborhoods, the downtown and financial district, Market Street, the Castro, and many of SF's most visited sites and museums. The apartment is impeccably clean. Well-maintained. Full of art, books and CD's. Every detail has been thought out for guests' comfort. The kitchen is a dream with more small applicances than you'll ever use. No need to spend half your vacation running around for detergent, salt, plastic wrap or coffee filters; it's all there for your use and convenience. The electronics are superb: large TV, CD and DVD players, computer and printer. David, the owner, and Richard, his local associate, are delights to deal with: friendly, responsive, and respectful of privacy. On top of all this, you get a beautiful, deep garden in back and -- worth its weight in gold -- a GARAGE underneath the house. Elsewhere in SF, you'll either pay $40/night for parking, or have to circle for two hours to find a spot. I have stayed in many VRBO rentals, and have my own listings, and I can say without a doubt that this home is a good as it gets! Just don't stay there when I want to go! Read more

Katie from Scotland
Very Enjoyable Flat and Location
My daughter (16) and i travelled from Scotland and stayed at this flat for 1 week in April 2009. We found the flat in a very safe, and handy location. The bus leaves from around the corner every 10 mins and took about 15-20 mins to get to the center of San Francisco and the shops!! Very Handy. We felt very safe in the neighbourhood and on several occassions either took the bus or walked to the large park. Supermarket was 2 mins walk and some restaurants - although we tended to stay in the flat for dinner.
The flat was lovely, had everything we needed - was quiet and probably too big for us as we tended to live in the kitchen/lounge.
David was very pleasant and helpful too. Would definitely recommend it.
The perfect place for a native San Franciscan, now expatriated,
This is an attractive welcoming elegant property. Quality fittings are
everywhere, as is the owner's care for the visitor. The owner's agent is a
friendly, amenable available person. In addition, fresh flowers and a
welcoming phone call went a long way to make my first days less of a trial,
after my trip from Australia.
As I am a native, I did not need the many tourism brochures that were left
for the visitor, but did notice they were up-to-date, and included
recommendations for restaurants in the neighbourhood. Would like to add
mine for Nopalito. Public transport is around the corner. Easily accessed
garage under the flat. A great walking neighbourhood. Large supermarket
one block away.
I was a lone traveller, but had many of my relatives and old friends to stay
for a night or three. The pull out couch in the front room is very
comfortable for two. The bedroom is dark and quiet and the bed extremely
All linens are high quality (100% cotton sheets, excellent quality towels,
numerous dishtowels) and easy to find. Glassware, crockery, cutlery
excellent quality as well. Any kitchen item you could want, including very
good knives, pots and pans. I was able to cook several multicourse meals
with no problem.
Used the garden several times, for meals, and just for reading the paper.
Lovely, comfortable, pretty, and looked after every other week.
Appreciated the use of the computer as well, and the well equipped desk
This flat is a home, and since I was there for such a very long time (most of
September and October) it was an important for me to feel this as part of
my successful San Francisco visit.
My friends were amazed at the quality, and commented on the fine art on
the walls, the many books on the shelves, and the interesting
neighbourhood, most unlike the one I grew up in, just a few blocks away.
My thanks to David for letting me have time in his San Francisco home, and
to Richard for looking after me.
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 11/16/2009
Thank you so much. As a guest for nearly two months, your impressions are particularly important to us. And since you had time to see every aspect of our home, your praise is especially rewarding. You give us confidence that our constant efforts to improve our home are worthwhile. Thanks!
Excellent place as a base home for your sight seeing trips in SF
As a family of 4 with 2 kids we stayed in this house for 4 days. The service we received before visiting the place and during our stay was very friendly and client oriented. Each question we asked was answered and in such a way that we were well informed before entering the house. House is well equiped. Bathroom could use an extra square meter but has everything you need. Only item that could be improved is the sofa in the livingroom were out 2 kids slept. Quality of the matress is not what we expected given the outstanding equipment and ammenities of the other furniture in the house. Loved the area and shops within walking distance of the house. Lovely garden! Read more
Response from YourHomeInSanFrancisco - 12/10/2009
Thanks to your welcome comment about one of our mattresses, we have already purchased a new one of better quality. We constantly buy new furniture, appliances and linen to keep the house up to our high standard and are grateful to guests who suggest ways to improve our home. We are glad that you found our home well equipped and the garden lovely and appreciated our thorough customer service. We are especially glad you let us know one of the sofa bed mattresses was not up to the standards of the rest of the house. We assumed, since it was only one year old, that it was fine. Thanks for letting us know!
Warm and Cozy
The house was just as described, centrally located, access to public transportation,large grocery store within walking distance and a very quiet suroundings. The garage is a big plus, we had a Ford Escape which was perfect for getting around in ecpecially with the hills and fit quite well in the garage. The kitchen was well equipted as well as all the reading material you could hope for, I wish we had more time to spend, thanks David for opening up your home to us.
Our New Home in San Francisco!
We were really pleased to find this flat just as
advertised (and better than the pictures). Clean
throughout, with more than enough space for the two
of us. Good quality linens and towels and a super
comfortable bed in a quiet bedroom. Lots of hot
water. The big kitchen had more gadgets, small
appliances and coffee makers than we could ever
use! It was handy to have a supermarket a block
from the house so we could have breakfast at home
before heading out then cook or order deliveries to eat in during the evening after returning. Very
nice garden! Really peaceful. We also liked the
walk to the Castro area over the nearby hills with
great views. Other parks nearby made for a relaxing
time as we are not into shopping. Public
transportation is only a block from the house and
we could get downtown in about 20 minutes by bus.
(We bought the one week bus pass which also works
on the cable cars.) Altogether a very pleasant stay
in this home. We considered it our home immediately
on entering and have recommended it to our friends!
