Great Family Vacation to San Francisco
Our stay was outstanding. The apartment was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 4 small children. The kids loved the bunk beds and single bed in the 2nd bedroom. The parents liked the included bottle of wine to help relax after getting them to bed. The rental also came with a bowl of fruit which was really nice as well. The neighborhood was very nice with restaurants within a short walking distance. The kids also loved just walking to go out to eat. The apartment had several touches that were greatly appreciated by our small (Years: 9, 6, 2 and 4 months)children. The apartment has coat hooks at both the normal parent height and smaller children's height, it had several kid friendly Dvds and books. My daughter read through the "What to do in San Francisco with kids" book she found in the apartment and discovered the Marine Mammal Rescue Center in Marin county as something to do, which we took in on a rainy day and she loved. In addition, the kids (and parents) liked having real cable TV so we could catch up on the shows we never have time to watch together "On Demand" after a day of sight seeing. In addition, in a pinch it was nice to be able to put Dora the explorer on for our 2 year old:)
Our family also likes to run in the morning. It was great to be able to run either through Golden Gate park if you went one way or the Presidio if you ran in the other direction. On one run we went to Baker Beach for an amazing view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Being able to park in the garage was also a bonus.
Victoria took time to show us the unit when checking in which we also appreciated. She really made us feel at home:)
We had a great time!
Couldn't Have Been Nicer
We reserved this apartment for the purpose of taking two exchange students to see the Golden Gate Park/Ocean Beach/Sea Cliff area of San Francisco and for visiting a friend undergoing treatment in Ucsf. It is an easy walk to these attractions (drive to Ucsf) with lots of great restaurants that you can walk to on Geary and Clement. Grocery Outlet and other markets also walking distance. Safeway a short drive. We love the neighborhoody feeling of the Outer Richmond district.
We were cheerfully greeted by Peter, who guided us into our own parking spot in a secure garage in the building and gave us a welcoming tour of the property and apartment. The apartment was absolutely perfect for the 4 of us - two 50-somethings and two 17-year-old exchange students. I can't say enough about how thoughtfully appointed the apartment is, with dishes, pots pans, wine glasses, appliances, tvs in each bedroom and living area - even a computer and printer available! The owners stock the kitchen with fresh coffee beans to grind, fresh fruit in a tiered arrangement on the kitchen table and a bottle of lovely California wine. The neighborhood seems super safe and quiet at night, even with the fire house across the street. There were a few fire calls the second night, but the firemen just pull the engines out quietly and don't turn on the sirens until they are a few blocks away in a more commercial zone. (We had fun watching the firemen wash the engines in the street on Saturday morning.) We will definitely recommend this unit to friends and family and hope to stay again in the future. Thank you Taya and Peter. We could feel your welcoming hospitality.
Fantastic apartment for SF vacation
One of the best vacation rentals at which we have ever stayed The apartment was tastefully decorated and immaculate. Fully stocked with items you normally need to buy-dish washing soap, paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, even shampoo! Organic coffee beans, fruit and Ghirardelli chocolates also were supplied. Victoria greeted us with maps and invaluable information on getting around which made our stay go smoothly. Completely safe neighborhood with grocery and restaurants within a block or two. We highly recommend this apartment!
college station, TX
It was 5 stars for us
This was the first time we took a vacation rental rather than staying at a hotel and we couldn't be happier. The location in outer Richmond was very convenient for us because we wanted to be near Golden Gate Park. We didn't realize when we rented the unit how great being on the Geary bus line would be. We were able to reach all parts of the city and the Bart from there, easily.
It was so nice to relax in the evenings and watch movies while eating takeout from the areas many ethnic restaurants.
There was plenty of room for four adults. We thought 3 TVs was excessive, but I'm sure others need them all.
The apartment was a top floor walk up, had a full kitchen and a parking space. If you can't do the stairs or want a super-fancy, super-modern place this is not for you. It was perfect for us.
The provided fruit and wine were nice, but the 2 bus passes were even better.
We would definitely rent this apartment again if we get to revisit SF.
A party of 3 from Taiwan planned a trip to the west coast.
We had a wonderful stay!
I been to a few places in Europe, and all over the states, this is the best place I stayed, and at a good price.
Honestly, I was a little bit scared when Taya asked us to pay the full amount up front before arriving at SF, but it was worth the risk.
The apartment was nicer than I expected, so folks, don't be scared!!
This was a great place to stay
We stayed here on a trip to SF for a family wedding. We arrived late at night and were met by Peter, who took us on a tour of the unit. It was obvious that they have put a priority on providing a comfortable environment for their tenants. We enjoyed our stay and when we are back in the area, we will definitely try to get this place again. Our only concern was we had my 93 year old Mother-in-law with us for a night but she managed the stairway fine (we were on 4th floor) and also loved the place.
Sydney, NSW, Australia
Great apartment, in a great location. Hosts met us and showed us through everything in the apartment and gave us tips on getting around in our first trip to San Francisco. Very comfortable and spacious, nice outlook and very light. Well equipped with everything a family would need. Fantastic location whether walking up to Golden Gate Park, bus downtown or by car to most parts of SF. Would stay again.
The Scudder family
Birthday family get together
We stayed 4 nights. In #4 everything . This was the most well supplied place we have ever stayed in. The quality of everything great. They have thought of everything you might need to cook with. The fruit basket, wine and great checkin by Mr. Katz was a wonderful welcome. You can't go wrong by choosing this apartment.
Great place to stay
I absolutely loved the apartment. It was comfortable in every way. The beds are comfortable. They have organic coffee beans that make one of the best San Francisco coffee I ever had. Make a long story short it feels like home.
A good experince
My experience with the owner and property is absolutely only a good experience. From booking, - to checkin, - to fruit and wine in the property.. to checkout and return of deposit.
Nice and friendly people :)
Firestation on the other site of the road, but not noise.
We will absolutely be back !!
Delightful family apartment
This apartment was just right for my family of 5, roomy and clean. Nice touch with fresh organic fruit, coffee and bottle of California Vino!!
The off street parking saved lots of time, and added security for our car.
Great apartment and location
We were as at home in this excellent apartment. We enjoyed very much our stay in San Francisco and this is because we were very comfortable in the apartment. The information available in the apartment was very helful to plan our visit, and the situation was excellent with many busses to the down town in two blocks distance. I want to thank the owner for the fruits, wine and all the thing she left for our arrival. I will recommend this apartment!!
Great apartment and location
We really enjoyed our stay in unit 4. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Our family loved how close to the bus lines it was.
The only draw backs were parking was a bit tight and the fire department next door is a bit busy.
Overall we loved it and would stay there again!

Minha casa em São Francisco
Depois de procurar e descobrir que a maioria dos hoteis estavam lotados em São Francisco uma amiga nos indicou alugar um apartamento.
Valeu a pena!!! O apartamento é lindo, bem equipado, num bairro muito bem servido e tranquilo. Podemos explorar a vizinhança sem problema, pois tudo é próximo. Fácil de chegar em qualquer outro lugar da cidade.
Quem nos recebeu foi Victoria, irmã da Taya que foi muito atenciosa e delicada. Viva a experiencia de alugar o apartamento da Taya. Você não vai se arrepender.
Obrigada Taya! Voltaremos outras vezes.
I highly recommend this apartment. It was beyond our expectations. This home was spotless, the owners are beyond hospitable and gave us the perfect location to visit a variety of areas near San Francisco. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and making our first visit to the west coast special.
Charming apartment near Golden Gate Park
This apartment was a very pleasant for us. Upon arrival everything was clean and presented as displayed in the pictures. The professionalism with which Taya and her husband are welcoming visitors is amazing, whenever we had a request they were giving us answers and they would help us out. As for the location, the place is very close to Golden Gate Park in which you can take a nice walk. Also the place is right next to Geary St where you can find all kinds of local shops and restaurants. Safeway is near the ocean when you keep going straight on Fulton. Having a free parking space in a garage is a plus in San Francisco.
The neighborhood is a very safe and quiet.
True Comfort away from home!
Our family of 5 stayed here for a week in July. It was beautifully furnished and we had everything we needed to cook full meals. We were right around the corner from a main bus line, minutes from the beach and the park. Coffee shop on corner and yummy deli/stores up and down the street. Fire station across the street gave us something to watch for...they were very polite and never turned on the sirens until they were down the street. Parking spot included inside. Washer and dryer (coin operated) in garage, too. Peter met us when I texted from the airport and showed us the ropes. It was a very relaxing time!
Great San Fran location with garage.
This condo is in a great location, close to shopping and Golden Gate Park. It is well appointed with designer touches and the family who owns and manages the building can't be beat. Victoria met us at the unit on our arrival and gave us a tour and valuable tips. A parking garage space is included and is a valuable addition!!
It's on the top floor which I love, personally, but be prepared to haul your luggage up all the steps. A good warmup for all the San Francisco hills!!
Beautiful home away from home
This is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay on your vacation. The owners hospitality was great. The rental was fully equipped with everything we needed and more than we expected. Probably the best part of our trip. Next time we're in SF we're definitely staying at one of Mrs Katz rentals again
Great place to be!
Really a good place to be. A nice location and a very nice appartement.
Unfortunately we were not abel to stay the full peridoe concnerning the 777 crash in SFO.
We would come back another time!
Well-equipped, comfortable apartment
The apartment was very spacious and had everything my family of four needed for a comfortable stay. It was clean and had an attractive, contemporary style. There were a few skylights which brought in a lot of light.
The location near Golden Gate Park and the Golden Gate Bridge was perfect for most of our plans, but the drive to downtown and the marina district took some time. We also took the bus directly to downtown from the bus stop located less than a block away, which was cheap and avoided the parking hassle.
The apartment was located in an immigrant neighborhood which was interesting and it had many ethnic restaurants nearby, plus a couple of small markets. We tried a couple of nearby restaurants and they were OK.
The apartment is located on the fourth floor which wasn't a problem for us, but could be for some. Interestingly, there is a fire station across the street and we enjoyed checking out the action over there. The only noise that bothered us was when the fire fighters tested their equipment in the morning. The street was otherwise quiet.
It was nice to have a garage to park in, but it was tricky to maneuver our car into the parking spot inside.
This place is awesome. You are close to everything. A few blocks from the beautiful Golden Gate Park. Close to the beach and the famous Cliff House. Easy access to the heart of the city.I could go on... Taya and Peter were great and easy to get a hold of prior to our arrival. The apartment is very nice and comfortable. Nicely decorated. Beds were very comfortable.Full kitchen and well stocked. Bathroom was nice and there are plenty of towels. We would stay again for sure. An added plus was the parking space in the garage below. You won't be disappointed!
Great trip with wonderful accommodations and terrific hosts!
This property is very clean and is even better than advertised with great accessories and very conveniently located near Golden Gate Park. My family of 6 had a very enjoyable stay and the hosts were extremely helpful to us throughout. We would definitely stay there again and we would highly recommend it to others.
San Fran Stay
Great apartment for exploring the city...
Right in Golden Gate Park area, and a 10min bus ride from the city. Great restaurants in walking distance and all the home comforts and facilities you need from your break wether business or pleasure.
We selpt 6 comfortably and the only slight problem was having one bathroom, but that is easily worked around with a bit of communication with the girls:) Plenty of mirrors throughout!
Great service and efficiency from the owner Taya.
St Petersburg, FL
Great place to stay in a great SF neighborhood
We stayed here while in town for a mix of business and pleasure. This place was perfect. We are a family of 5 and while this place is only 2 bedrooms, it worked perfectly for the week. We were able to tour the city by day and crash comfortably by night.
Fantastic location very near to Presidio, Golden Gate Park, and the GG Bridge over to Marin Headlands. Well appointed apartment in a relatively quiet part of town - owners were excellent to work with (even met us at 10:30 pm at night when our flight arrived late to give us the keys and tour of the apartment) and every detail was thought of in the apartment to enhance our vacation experience (the free wifi, free local telephone calls, and fruit/wine on arrival were much appreciated). Top floor apartment was very bright and spacious and availability of laundry facilities and off-road parking on the ground floor made this a fantastic choice for anyone looking for a family-friendly locale to explore San Francisco and surrounding areas from. Many good restaurants, coffee shops, and fruit shops in easy walking distance from the apartment. Would not be suitable for those unable to climb 3 flights of stairs to the apartment as no elevator.
Great family rental in perfect SF location
We spent our family spring break in SF and this 2-bedroom rental unit made the trip spectacular!! It was perfect for our 6 and 4 year old boys who got their own bedroom with a bunk bed and extra twin. The master bedroom was perfect for us and the single full bath was perfect for our needs. We loved the full-sized kitchen and living room with full dining table for 6. It allowed us to peacefully wake up and do breakfast at our own pace. The location was super: golden gate park is only 3 blocks away (perfect for the kids) and we were only 1 block off Geary street, allowing us to take the bus to downtown pretty easily. Ocean beach was a five minute drive and we were able to walk to China beach. Plenty of asian restaurants, cafes, and neighborhood grocery stores within a couple of blocks. the street was quiet and it was nice to be on the top floor. We ended up renting a car, so it was perfect to have our own garage parking space since parking can be cumbersome on the street. The hosts were perfect, greeted us at the unit when we arrived and gave us a full tour. We had a delightful basket of fruits and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we entered. The apartment itself is wonderfully updated with TVs in the living room and each bedroom, a sofabed in the living room that the kids loved watching movies on, and all standard appliances in the kitchen. It was a huge plus to have a washer and dryer in the garage (coin-operated). All in all a great rental unit for our family vacation of 4. We will definitely stay here again whenever we head back to SF!
Great find for the area
Really nice size and good layout for our family of 6, especially with a room with bunk beds and a full in the same room. Everything worked well and Peter met us at the door and showed us the ropes. WiFi worked well and having a fully stocked kitchen was extremely helpful. Very few negatives, other than small issues with parking and stairs. These are small negatives, in fact, more things you should simply be prepared for. There is no elevator, and the unit is on the 4th floor, so be prepared to hike your bags up. There is a parking space in the garage, which is great since there is very little street parking. However, be ready for a parking in-and-out adventure with 4 spots in a tiny garage. I think San Franciscans are used to the arrangement, but many I'm guessing aren't. If you rent a car, rent a small one!
Taya and her husband keep this place very nice, plenty of supplies and very welcoming.
Thank you for being part of our plesent journy!
San Francisco Getaway
Excellent apartment. We felt as home.
Victoria received us, explained everything and gave us advices and great tips!
We highly recomend this apt. and would stay there again!
A perfect stay in San Francisco
We loved our time in Taya's apartment. Everything was spotlessly clean and very well managed. Taya and Victoria truly gave us a home away from home. Even for our big family of 7 (Mom, Dad, 3 kids under 5, Grandma and Grandpa from Germany) the apartment was suitable. We enjoyed the fresh fruit and wine. The owners openess, friendliness and helpfulness is priceless. We will be back!
Great location, comfortable unit, loved having dedicated parking
We were in Unit 4, I think. It was very nicely maintained and had everything we needed. It says it sleeps 7, but the pull-out sofa was not comfortable because the mattress was thin and you could feel the springs too much. Luckily, we had 6 there, so we just left the sofa as a sofa and had one of our smaller girls sleep there and she said it was super comfortable that way. Located very near GG park and the GG bridge. A little bit of a drive everytime we needed to go towards the more touristy areas of Pier 39 and Union Square, but it's a nice quiet area and I really really appreciated having dedicated parking - so worth it in SF. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely Clean One Bedroom Condo Nestled in Quiet San Francisco Ne
We enjoyed our five day stay in this lovely, clean and quiet one bedroom, one bathroom condo nestled in the Richmond neighborhood of San Francisco.
Upon our arrival, the owners met us to show us the condo. Fruit and wine awaited as we entered the unit.
The kitchen was well stocked with organic coffee, sugar, and a nice selection of tea. Also, anything you would need to make a meal was there.
Plenty of towels, wash cloths, and extra blankets were available.
Plenty of closet space in each bedroom, as well as drawers.
A garage located at ground level was available for one car parking.
A washer and dryer was also available for our use.
We will definitely stay at this location again!
Fabulous SF apartment
I and my two teenage kids stayed here for 4 nights. What a great location. Nice neighborhood cafes and restaurants nearby. Easy bus rides to downtown. Golden Gate Park just a few blocks away. The apartment was perfect for us. Master bedroom was ample size, queen bed firm, with a wifi connected laptop ready for use. The second bedroom had a single bed and a bunkbed, which were fine with the kids. Loved the details - the welcome fruits and wine, the organic coffee, and the complete kitchen. Hosts were gracious and very helpful. Exceeded expectations and highly recommended.
San Diego, CA
Great Place to Stay!!!
We were there over the New Year of 2012/2013. The owners Victoria / Taya are fantastic people. They provided us with everything we needed. The place is amazing with three TVs, beautifully decorated, garage (huge plus in the city) and walking distance from the Golden Gate Park. I really cannot rave enough about this place and I am so thankful to Taya for being so kind to me and my friends. I definitely will look them up again to stay there. Hopefully every time I go to San Fran!
Thank you Taya and Victoria!!!

Curitiba PR Brazil
Good, but with stairs.
Inside the apartment was very good, complete and clean. Some improves I suggest: Alert to large cars, the garage is small. You have to put several quarter coins for using the washin/dryer machines. It's located in the 3rd floor, no elevator. Close to a beautiful park but far from downtown. We found better prices in hotels, but sure less space.
Florence and David, from Toronto
Generally we were pleased at our choice. The property owner waited until our flight arrived to show us the unit. It was as advertised. Nice to have tea, coffee and sugar, bowl of fruit and even a bottle of wine to start. Useful to have a library of tourist books and brochures, real info rather than usual sales bumpf. Place was fine: clean, modern, in middle-class neighbourhood. No bugs or areas needing repair. Obvious pride of ownership and attention to detail. Heater kept up with a cold spell in January. Parking space a big plus. Location is fair: public transit by bus is around the corner, supermarket is about 10 min walk, restaurants within walking distance. Fire station across the street: makes the building easy to find, and although trucks usually do not use sirens during the night, they do go out at all hours. Good accessibility to property owners during stay. Would choose this place again, and recommend it.
Great stocked apartment
We really enjoyed our stay in apt #1. We found it very tastefully decorated and extremely well stocked with supplies. Actually, better stocked than most any condo we have rented; fresh ground coffee, spices, kitchen cleaning supplies, etc.---really outstanding. The place is super clean and very well organized. The beds, pillows and linens are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked with an ample supply of dishes, silverware and glasses. We enjoyed and greatly appreciated the generous supply of fresh fruit and the bottle of wine.
We really appreciated the great supply of soft bath towels that were provided. We also took advantage of the nice videos, books and maps you supplied. The LR TV/DVD worked great. We greatly appreciated the instructions that were posted. So often we are left to fend on our own, and this proves difficult.
Overall the stay was terrific and we would highly recommend this facility to others.
Brilliant family accommodation
A fabulous choice to stay in for SF. Close to all amenities and everything you could hope for is in the unit.
All the comforts of home
My wife, 2 kids & I had the pleasure of staying three nights here and had a wonderful time. We were made to feel welcome from the first day when we greeted by the owner who took the time to show us around the unit and recommend what to see & do. The unit is exceptionally well appointed & the location is great - just around the corner from a large selection of restaurants, and the bus line. Would definitely stay again.
The real San Francisco
This is a great apartment for a family of up to four people, with more than comfortable accommodation for all. Within an easy commute of the major SF attractions (car needed), but far enough away to also enjoy the suburban feel of the city, we can recommend this apartment. The owners went to great lengths to make our checkin easy at 11pm on Thanksgiving night. We really appreciated their attention and the communications beforehand.
Everything we needed and more!
My girlfriends and I needed something spacious enough to accommodate 6 people for a weekend getaway yet still affordable and within our budget. This rental unit provided just that for us and much more than we expected! The owners really put much consideration in for their guests when renting out the unit and we really appreciated that! Taya and her husband were easy to communicate with and explained everything straight to the point that we needed to know about the unit. Beds were comfortable and we loved how they provided internet and cable tv to watch along with plenty of coffee and tea in case we needed our morning caffeine fix! The location of the property was also close a lot of good restaurants that you can walk to. I will definitely rent this unit again the next time I visit San Fran! Thanks Taya!
Montreal, QC, Canada
The owner cared a lot about our staying. We had everything we needed. We felt at home. It was easy to take public transportation. WiFi was excellent. Free parking place, but we didn't have a car. Will definitely stay there again! Highly recommended!
Wonderful location and great hosts!!
We just had a trip with 3 girls for a 40th Birthday trip. We had a wonderful time. They location was great and the apartment was well set up. We felt very safe there. The owners Taya and Peter were wonderful and great to deal with. As a property owner myself it was nice to have someone available to answer any questions. The unit was well decorated and they provided a lot of extras. We loved the fruit and the organic coffee they left us. Thanks again and we will come back in we go to SFO again in the future. We made some great memories.
Très bel appartement, bien situé, à 20 minutes du centre ville, 5 minutes d'un superbe parc et 15 minutes du Pacifique.
Nous étions une famille de 4, avec 2 enfants, et c'était très bien.
Cuisine très bien équipé, tout le confort...
Gentillesse des locataires, je n'ai que du bon à dire de cette location, et encore plus de cette superbe ville de San Francisco...
Merci à Taya...
Den Bosch. The Netherlands
Great place to stay!
Lovely place! Location is good, not too far from downtown and some decent restaurants in area.
"So what's the plan for tomorrow?" Great place to relax, regroup
Taya's sister was filling in for her the week we came and she did a great job! We had an early arrival so we knew we might need to drop the luggage off and explore until the cleaning was done. But Victoria had schedule the cleaning crew to take care of our unit 1st that day so everything was ready for us to move in after being shown the garage parking, coin op washer/dryer, and key orientation.
The unit was well equipped with plenty of fluffy towels, organic shampoo, soap, cooking utensils, spices, coffee, fruit basket, information booklet on the unit (including instruction to hook onto wifi & check out info--which we'd forgotten by the time we needed to know), extra blankets, etc. The only thing we ran out of were wine glasses--we were enjoying our Napa purchases. :)
Location & access to transportation are extremely important to me in choosing a vaction location. The neighborhood & building's feeling of safety were great. Fire Station across the street also created a sense of security (and a landmark to find our home for the week). Taxi from airport was ~$50. Taxi from Fisherman's Wharf was ~$25. Bus stop was around the corner and quick to get to. 2 Muni passes were included with our rental and Victoria had brought an extra one for us to purchase which was a huge perk. The $6 cable car rides are included for free w/ the Muni pass. The negative to the bus was that the main route to this location stops about every 2 blocks going into town to the attractions which seemed to take a little longer with every trip (actually ~ 30 min). If your a runner, Golden Gate park is about 3-4 blocks away which is beautiful. Mid-trip we rented a car and found getting around pretty easy. The garage was tight & we did flip the side mirrors in to negotiate the wall & someone who didn't park inside thier parking line. We were always going against traffic so driving & parking were surprisingly easy.
The owner has a great system to managing thier 8 rental units.

This was a great time at a great place!
This was a very clean and well decorated apartment. We felt like we had the true San Francisco experience! The owners made us feel right at home.
Awesome place to stay. Very clean and updated. Taya kept excellent communication thru the whole rental process and I received my rental deposit back in less that a week after checking out. Very quiet street with restaurants just around the corner. The fire station across the street was no bother at all. I would recommend this rental without any hesitation.
Santa Fe, NM
We enjoyed staying in this very clean and well organized unit. The owners are very friendly and accommodating; Taya answered my inquiries immediately and was ready to meet us with the key as soon as we arrived in San Francisco. The unit has everything you need, from olive oil to cook with, right down to a first aid kit! My family felt very comfortable here and my kids, ages 6 and 9, loved the bunk beds. It was a nice feeling to come "home" to a comfortable and convenient place after long days playing tourist.
Los Angeles, CA
A place you can call home
Definitely a great place to stay in! The apartment is in superb condition, very clean and complete of all your basic needs plus some - TV, towels, laundry and etc - you name it and it's there to make your stay comfortable.Everything you need is very accessible- restaurants, transportation and markets are just around the corner. If you want to cook, they have all the utensils and spices available for you to use. It's a great place for an almost nonstop bonding time with your friends and your family.
Shout out to Taya for being responsive; and to Victoria for very accommodating. They both make it easier for their guests to get hold of a great place to stay in. A+++ for the service and the apartment. I can't stress enough how great the accommodation was.
We rented this unit for a wedding over the weekend, and it was perfect. It easily slept seven people (one master bedroom and one bedroom with a bunk bed and a twin, plus a very comfortable pull-out couch). The apartment was beautifully decorated and even had furniture for a baby--a crib, a high chair, and plastic kitchenware and baby books. The neighborhood was safe and conveniently located near Golden Gate Park, China Beach, and a ton of great Richmond restaurants. We were greeted at the apartment by the very friendly owner, who showed us where local grocery stores were and left us complimentary wine and fruit. The best part was the garaged parking spot, though! All in all, an excellent place to stay.
San Francisco and Sonoma Wedding
We travelled from the UK to San Francisco for a family wedding so we had friends and family in rental accommodation all over the San Francisco area. Our pick was Taya's place and I have to say it was one of the best apartments. The apartment was clean, very spacious, well decorated and very comfortable with all the amenities you could require (including iPod/iPhone charger radio alarm clocks). There are flat screen TVs in both bedrooms and lounge and excellent extras such as tea and coffee to use upon arrival. The lounge and dining area was spacious and airy with a hallway to the two excellent sized bedrooms one a double and the other a tripple with bunk beds. The family bathroom was well equipped and very well decorated with plenty of fresh towels. There was a bottle of wine and fresh fruit for us upon arrival! Taya's sister Victoria showed us around and gave us excellent travel advise and tips. I have to say Taya has thought of everything including a Laptop and printer to use during your stay. With free internet access we had everything we could need.
It's a short 20 min bus ride down Geary to Union Square and into the heart of San Francisco.
One thing to note is there is a fire station right oposite the apartment but that didn't bother us during our stay.
If we're lucky enough to travel back to San Franciso we would definitely stay here again. Thanks Taya and Victoria
Victoria welcomed us to this unit with vitality and graciousness. She answered every question, showed us where everything was, and made herself available to us with the genuine desire to make our time there as enjoyable and trouble-free as possible. The flat was better supplied than any hotel or time share we've stayed in, the beds extremely comfortable, the towels thick, thirsty and numerous, the location excellent... In fact, the only thing not perfect about Taya's beautiful flat were neighbors on the floor above us that, for several nights, kept us from getting to sleep before midnight (3 a.M. our time!), but I'm sure that was a rare occurance for this nice a place. The positives, including a garage/parking space, a bottle of wine and lots of fresh fruit on our arrival, only a few steps to public transportation, and everything we might need or want in the unit including TVs in every room, Dvds, Wi-Fi, even delicious coffee beans and a grinder, and a computer, far outweighed the noise. This is a real find in San Francisco, and the hospitality of the hosts is simply the best!
What a brilliant apartment. Perfectly suited for our family. Fully kitted out - even managed a roast dinner.
A wealth of information provided by way of guide books and local restaurants etc.
Great apartment for a family of 5
My family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenage sons)stayed here in early July. It was great alternative to a hotel stay where we would have had to pay for 2 rooms. We were able to have breakfast in the apartment before heading out to explore San Francisco for the day. We took advantage of the delicious coffee and teas that were provided for our use. The fruit and wine left as gifts were a lovely touch. The free parking space allowed us to have a rental car and the freedom to explore the Bay area. The laptop computer and printer was an unexpected plus. We enjoyed our stay here very much.
Gry Sagen Erni
Ok, but not a state of the art apartement
Taya came and met us upon arrival to SF and she is super friendly, helpful and nice! She gave us a 7 days pass to the public transport which was greatly appreciated and she helped us with something we ordered in the mail, and let us stay longer in the apartment as we were leaving late in the evening.She couldn´t have been more accommodating before arrival and while we were there.
We loved the coffeemaker and the docking stations for the Ipods. Great. What we did not appreciate was to do the laundry we needed seven 25Cent pieces for one machine. We have rented several places and never needed to pay for using the washing machine and dryer. (Which costs another 6 25 Cent which we did not have) It would have been better if Taya informed about this before arrival.
The apartment was too small for a family of five! We would not recommend anyone with bigger children to stay there if you are five or more people. For Three, four people it might work. (Our children are 16, 14 and 9)We also found that it could have been more big bath towels available.The kitchen is old and not ment for cooking very much. It is not a state of the art appartement, but works OK for a stay in SF.
Well Equipped / Centrally Located
The unit is well equipped with all the amenities of home. Taya welcomed our family with a basket of organic fruit, coffee and very nice bottle of California wine. The unit is well appointed with good cookware, appliances and plenty of towels for a family of four. The family room and each bedroom have high definition flat screen Tv's with cable, which is great if you have kids. The unit is approximtely 15 minutes to Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, and Chinatown depending on traffic. We enjoyed our stay and it is nice place to relax after a long day in the city or Napa. At times the unit can be noisy from street activity, but otherwise, we had a very enjoyable stay at this unit.
Very comfortable stay with good location to amenities
Rental unit was very close to good restaurants,coffee shops and shopping.Golden Gate Park nearby was great for morning walks.Service from hosts was very good..loved the wine.
Unit was clean and comfy.
Perfect vacation rental!! comfortable, secure, great location!!
The rental was supremely comfortable, clean, secure and just perfect!!! It was a wonderful refuge for my friend, whose husband was facing a difficult health crisis. My husband and I also got to enjoy our stay with her. Your attention to detail in furnishing your rental, including beautiful and plentiful bed and bath linens, household supplies, etc. and your special welcoming gifts, really made us feel at home. Loved too that we had our own city parking(a cherished amenity in San Francisco), with a short walk to coffee shops, markets, and wonderful restaurants!!!
El paso, Texas
Taya was a great host! Everything was clean and well decorated! No question that if the opportunity comes we will stay again! The location is perfect and the Coffee shop down the street is an added plus.
Auckland, New Zealand
Great apartment - Extremely well stocked
This was a great apartment with lots of room for our family of three. We appreciated the complimentary wine and fruit. Great range of teas too. We weren't affected by street noise and all slept very well. The beds are very comfortable and the shower was pretty good too.
Taya was a real pleasure to deal with and accommodated our early and late check-in and check-out times.
Lots of good local restaurants close by and we used public transport to easily reach everywhere we wanted to go.
Family of 4
Rochester Hills, MI
Very clean, comfortable, & beautiful apartment
Great location (away from all the tourists). Very nice and comfortable furnishings. Well-equipped kitchen! The owners are very generous in supplying all paper products, coffee & tea, spices, dish soap, shampoo, etc.
Very well equipped unit, friendly owner, great local tips
The unit is very well equipped with everything you need. The apartment was very cleaned and they provided a very nice high chair for our daughter (not the cheap ones you get in restaurants). Also the grip was very good.
Wonderful home away from home!
Upon my arrival I found a wonderful assortment of fresh fruit, and a bottle of California Merlot! That was just the beginning.
Very comfortable furniture in living room that has a flat screen TV with the works. Dining area that accomodate many. Fully equipped kitchen--a pleasure to cook in! A very nice bathroom. And, two bedrooms, nicely appointed, also with flat screen TVs. The linens in bathroom and bedrooms were quite nice. Crib and high chair, for those who need them. By the way, this flat can potentially sleep seven.
I chose this flat because of its location--just around the corner from my son's apartment. Not to mention that it is a short walk to Golden Gate Park, shopping and restaurants on Geary, Clement, and California Streets, and several different bus lines.
The owners were so very accommodating and pleasant. I will definitely stay here again when visiting my son, and highly recommend it to friends and others.
Almost Heaven- West Virginia
San Francisco-great apartment
In the heart of the Richmond District you feel as you are part of the life of the neighborhood and not a tourist. With the walk up unit, the coffee bistro and m any restaurants within walking distance and public transportation around the corner it was convenient. You can even make an easy walk to China Beach, or take a long hike to the Presido or Golden Gate Bridge. The Cliff House is a nice evening walk. The owners provided spices for cooking and organic coffee and tea for the morning, as well as a welcome basket of fruit and wine. The orientation to the unit and the surrounding area was great.
Great apartment, Great Location
This is an exceptionally well appointed and well furnished apartment. Price very reasonable for a place of this quality. Great neighborhood with many, many good restaurants and easy bus access to downtown (and a bus pass was provided!). Incluced parking spot is a squeeze, but a very valuable advantage in this crowded city.
Definitely will come back again
A clean, cosy and modern apartment with all amenities avaliable you will receive from a 4-star hotel. A kitchen well-equiped for home cooking. Prompt and excellent services from Tanya and her husband Peter. They are helpful and patient with all our queries and provide prompt help whenever needed. It will be convenient if you have a car.
For those who are light sleeper may not welcome the disruption caused by the fire department nearby.
best apartment in San Francisco
Very clean,comfortable, there was fruit and wine waiting on us
Fantastic apartment, very well equipped, superb experience with the owners
Very nice apartment. Was great for 4 adults and 2 children. Everything was clean and neat. The blinds in the living area were a bit of a pain. when windo was open the slats kept falling off. Also the tv in the living room had no sound on the right side. Needs new wiring from comcast box to tv. We were able to rig with dvd wiring. Every thing else was great.
Super nice owner, very helpful and patience
First and foremost, our utmost thank you for accomdating the late night check in and I want to take this opportunity to thank Victoria for being so helpful and going extra miles to drive me around neighbourhood to find restaurant that was still open late in the night as we just landed and checked in to the apartment. We love the apartment and so as our 8 months old baby boy. He slept very well and more time than he ever did at home. The apartment location is also very conveniently located and surrounded by a lot of restaurants. We would definitely recommend to anyone who look for vacation rental in SF. Thanks again Tara and Victoria!
Great vacation getaway place
Great location, great price. Would definitely stay there again!
M S Wood
Great location and great apartment
The owner met us at the apartment at 11 o'clock at night to give us the keys to the apartment and let us know about parking in the garage, etc.! The apartment was sparkling clean and very comfortable. There was a large bowl of organic fruit and a bottle of wine on the dining room table, so thoughtful! We were in town for our daughter's graduation, and have family in town, so we were busy almost every minute, so we didn't have the chance to use the wonderful binder the owners provide of local restaurants and attractions. Apartment is within easy walking distance to two nice coffee shops, and easy access to all areas of town. We would definitely stay again.
Wellington , New Zealand
We had an absolutely wonderful stay in this perfect apartment ! The location is a winner - close to the bus route into town (approx 20min ride ) , close to Golden Gate park , beach , Golden Gate bridge etc .. The apartment itself is extremely clean , spacious & warm , good quality beds & linens & every conceivable kitchen utensil you need . Dealing with Taya (& nearly her whole family!) was a delight , they are all so helpful & accommodating , buying our Muni passes for us before we arrived , complimentary fresh fruit & wine , and Taya went out of her way in returning our security bond - which was hugely appreciated . We didn't frequent any local resturants , choosing to cook in our lovely apartment instead . I would highly recommend this apartment to any friends & family , Thanks again for all your help & a truely great stay . Team Harris , New Zealand

Reliable and help Landlord
My family and I (4 adults and 3 kids) spent 7 nights in this wonderful apartment which is well located in SF.
Taya had provided great help during our stay and had even went to great extend to ensure things I had order through the internet been delivered to me.
We greatly enjoyed our stay there and definitely love to be back again soon. Thanks Taya for your great hospitality.
home away from home
We stayed here for 6 nights and had a great time: clean, spacious, well equipped, organic bad products complimentary fruit and wine bottle, many books and maps, fantastic for families with kids (ours loved the room with bunk bed and extra bed) great location with parking, friendly/helpful owner. We will go back and definitely recommend staying here
Great apartment with modern amenities!! Great location go right at end of the street and get the 38 or 38L bus to powell straight into the city!!
There is a fire station across the road but never heard a call out during our whole stay- they let you tale pics of fire engines too
Only downfall was our apartment was on 4th floor with no lift so had to walk 4 flights with suitcases and baby in pram etc but we managed... Loved this place!!
Sparkling Clean, Fully Equipped
We rented this designer unit for ten days. We liked all the conveniences of the unit, as well as its proximity to our family. The amenities were plentiful, down to the shoehorn, thoughtfully provided. We liked all of the aspects of the unit, except for the brown decor which we found oppressive. The TVs were a little complicated to use. In sum, it was a pleasure to stay there.
Sweet Home, Oregon
Comfortable and convenient place to stay.
We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. Taya was quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our arrival and very hospitable. It is only 4 blocks to Golden Gate Park and 1 block to the nearest bus stop, making it accessible to just about any activity in San Francisco. The kids enjoyed watching the trucks and ladders at the fire station out the living room window- which produced such a minimal amount of noise that it was not even a concern. Very comfortable beds and the kitchen was easy to work in.
Every want catered for
Form the moment we were met by Peter we knew we had made the right choice.
Peter showed us through the lovely 2 bedroom unit filled with all of the modern luxuries of home and more.
He explained how everything worked then showed us his gift to us; a great fresh fruit basket and wine!
The apartment goes beyond the normal experience from kitchen spices to an abundance of towels all clean and fresh.
We have 3 small children and the set up was perfect. We are now staying in a very nice hotel but miss the ability to be able to cook for ourselves if we wish.
Overall a stress free visit to San francisco in a very nice place. Thank you.
Great location, comfortable and clean
We were pleasently surprised with the location, pretty quiet street and some good restaurants are walking distance. The unit was very clean and we for sure appreciated the fresh fruit, coffee and wine.
Everyone had a good time in San Francisco and in this apartment. We love the coffee machine and the amenities provided. Indoor parking is a plus. Definitely recommended!
Diamond Springs, CA
Fun, Fun, Fun!
Perfect accomodation in this unit. Very clean and comfortable. The parking spot was so convienient and so was the public transit. Thank you Peter and Taya for the nice stay and the goodies..We will be back!
awesome stay by the bay
beautiful home, great ammenities, nice quiet neighborhood near golden gate park. what more could you ask for? i'd definitely come back, and hope to soon!
Excellent service. Very nice apartment.
We have just spent a week in the flat. A family of 3 adults and 2 small kids.
Plenty of room for all of us. Everything as described.
Thanks Taya for your wonderful hospitality.
Wellington, New Zealand
This apartment was our haven, and so central to everything. We l
We stayed for a total of 4 days in this lovely apartment, we were met by owner on the first day early after our plans changed slightly, they were very helpful and friendly.
The apartment itself was our haven, the nice touches of the fruit, wine, and coffee were very much appreciated, the rental car we were using on tour went into the garage and stayed there as you are very central and public transport is so good. The rooms are spacious and the apartment is well appointed.
We would stay in this apartment again in a heartbeat and look forward to our next trip.
P.S. Check out the neighbourhood there are some very good restaraunts in the area.
Wonderful location and stay
I enjoyed the comfortable furnishings, the wonderfully decorated interior, the laptop computer available for internet and the handy kitchen. The location is great with close proximity to golden gate park, the city bus line, and excellent area restaurants.
Fantastic Stay at a Great Location
We spent 10 days in this 2 bedroom apartment and had a great time. It is conveniently located in the Richmond district and only a mile from China and Baker Beaches. The Muni passes would a wonderful bonus. Ninety percent of San Francisco is accessible by bus. There were three entertainment units in the apartment allowing different family members to enjoy their personal television choices. The apartment was nicely furnished and had plenty of cookware and dinnerware. It is exactly as advertised. Taya was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely stay here again. It may be helpful to know that this apartment is across the street from a fire department. The front bedroom can be a bit noisy at night, however this was not a serious drawback from the many benefits of this rental.
What a fabulous place.
This was our first time using a holiday rental, I was a little conserned at first being in a different country and someone else place, but that changed very quickly.
I had sent a number of emails before we got there and the response was very quick all my questions were answered.
My family and I were meet at the appartment and showned around.
The host spent time showing us the area on the map how to use the transport (bus, cable car and trams) and also were the closest grocery store was, all the things you need to know. It mad our stay so enjoyable.
The apparently is comfortable for a family of 4 every thing is user friendly and the beds- well sooo good luxury.
Highly recommend visiting San Fransico and staying here!
Rental on 26th ave
My family and I had a wonderful stay at this location. The apartment was clean, provided all the necessities, check-in was easy, convenient and easy access to stores, restaurants as it is right by Geary and Clement St. Only negative thing I can say about the experience is that since the unit was located on the first floor, there were a few nights I could hear stomping sounds from the unit above, especially late at night. After politely informing them that it was past 10 pm and they needed to quiet down, things got better. Still, every so often we would hear loud stomping and running sounds but it wasn't as bad as the first few nights.
Overall, a wonderful experience and would stay here again. Thank you to Taya, Victoria and alex for making this trip very memorable!
This is the perfect place to stay in San Francisco. If it is available, don't hesitate to book it!! Taya pays attention to every detail in the apartment and in her service. She quickly responded to all emails before our trip, and made easy arrangements to check in and to check out. The apartment has a great location on a quiet residential street a few blocks from Golden Gate Park. It is a huge plus to have a parking space! The apartment was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and organized. An added bouns is that Taya welcomes each guest with a bottle of wine, a huge bowl of fruit, and chocolates on the bedside tables.The kitchen was stocked with essentials such as coffee, sugar, spices, and much more than enough glassware, plates, and cooking utensils. Beds were extremely comfortable. All in all, I would easily stay here again and would recommend the apartment to anyone. Taya was exceptionally accommodating and her apartment is definitely as described - a great alternative to an upscale hotel!
Great apartment, easy access to transport
The apartment is very roomy, and very well appointed. The off street parking was great to have. Very close to the excellent Muni bus service. Good local restaurants, the Vietnamese 'La Vie' on Geary St was terrific. Very welcoming hosts, will definitely stay again.
Fabulous San Fran apartment
This apartment was very comfortable and well situated in San Fran. The owners were very obliging and were great to deal with.
JoAnn T. & Valentine Wangler
Bismarck, North Dakota
We were very satisfied with this rental unit.
It had a well equipped kitchen, with a huge fruit basket and bottle of wine, organic coffee and teas as a gift. The bed mattresses were awesome - very comfortable. The Owner even went out and purchased a brand new laptop computer when we informed them that the one in the unit did not work. It was so convenient being able to check in and print out our airlines tickets in the apartment. Garage parking was especially appreciated too, since parking in San Francisco is problematic. We will definitely consider renting this unit again!
Comfortable and Cleant
We recently booked a weeks stay at the Designer Unit for an event in Ocean Beach. Peter and Taya were a pleasure to work with: always available to answer questions before and during our stay. The flat was immaculate, cleaner than most 4-star hotels I have booked. In addition, everything was well stocked and the usual hotel amenities, such as an iron, ironing board, and hair dryer, are also provided. Restaurants and stores are also within walking distance and there is a cute coffee shop on the corner. The location was quiet and seemingly safe so we had restful nights. I hope we have another opportunity to go to San Francisco, I would definitely stay there again!
Like in my own home
The place, in our opinion, is perfect. location, cleanliness, furniture, details of the owner, who represents the kindness of the people of san francisco.
the price - comfort was perfect.
100% recommend it, our next vacation in San Francisco we will stay in this place
R and M
Comfortable well equipped apartment
We stayed in this apartment for eight nights and it was a very comfortable home away from home. Everything was as advertised, and while we didn't make use of the cooking facilities during our stay, the kitchen, like the rest of the flat, was well equipped. Previously when I've stayed in holiday rentals we've usually had to buy some essentials over the stay - but we didn't need to go near a supermarket. The big container of coffee was a massive plus too!
We'd researched the area so we were happy to be within about a 30 minute walk of the ocean, which suited us perfectly. So yes, it is a good distance away from downtown, but we were very happy to choose this location away from it all. We just bought bus passes for the duration, so the number 38 which runs from almost right outside the flat was our ticket downtown, which suited us fine. I don't think we were waiting any longer than five minutes for a bus at any stage.
The fire station across the street did create some noise in the early hours, but this might not be a problem for most people. We were all a bit off with our sleeping patterns as it was, so I think it probably bothered us a bit more than most.
The contact with the owners was efficient, and the deposit on the apartment had been refunded to my credit card before we even got home.
All in all, it was exactly as advertised, which really is what you're always hoping for! We had a very enjoyable stay.
Great unit and parking, really good transport nearby
We stayed in the apartment three nights in Oct 2011. When initially reserving, the contacting was easy and all emails replied to quickly. Upon reservation, I hadf to leave a 300$ deposit, but it was refunded to me right after the key was returned, so very prompt service.
The apartment was well furnished with two big tv's and even some dry foods, spices etc. in the kitchen. The owners had made a massive information packet about the city and there were guides, restaurant menus, info on shops nearby, maps and everything you could ask for! We also received a complimentary bottle of wine and some fruit, which was a nice touch. There was one room with a bunkbed and a single bed, another with a king bed and in the livingroom there was a sofabed so it does sleep 7, although I wouldn't recommend it as there's only one small bathroom.
The unit is about 20 minutes on the bus to the centre, but there's a really big street 50 yards away and buses go all the time, so shouldn't be a problem with transportation.
There isn't a balcony in thew unit and the one we stayed in was 4th floor without an elevator. As smoking isn't allowed, you have to walk 4 flights of steps to have a cigarette.
I was a bit unsure if there was air conditioning, if there was we couldn't get it to work. Luckily it was October so not that hot!
Thanks to the owners, we had a very nice time!

Lovely apartment with friendly hosts
We had a lovely stay in San Francisco in this beautiful apartment. We were met by the owner on the day of our arrival and showed around the apartment. It has absolutely everything you need, from guides on San Francisco to lovely organic, tea, coffee fruit and a complimentary bottle of California red wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the kids loved their bedroom.
Thank you Taya for allowing us to stay at your place. Everything was great and better than what we expected. Definitely will recommend you to our friends. Warmest regards.
Boulder Creek, CA
Weekend near GG park
Fantastic place to rent! It's just a short walk from Golden Gate Park and very close to many restaurants and shops on Geary Blvd.
The owners have paid attention to details! The decor and cleanliness are perfect!
They welcomed us with organic goodies, wine, and the apartment is supplied with virtually anything you'll need for your stay (from kitchen utensils to organic bathroom soap).
I highly recommend this rental!
Santa Rosa, CA
Wonderful apartment! Very spacious and clean. Hosts were amazing... even stocked the place with fresh fruit and wine!!! Only negative is that it is across the street from a fire station--- we heard sirens twice on our first night which woke up our kids. The next day, however, I took my kids to the fire department for a tour--- my kids loved it!!! So it all worked out! It is a great rental!!!
Weekend in the city
We spent a weekend here with our two teenage daughters and had a wonderful time. Hiked Land's End and explored Haight ashbury on the bus. The apartment was well equipped with all necessities.
Lovely Stay, Great Host
This Richmond District property was as advertised and more. Taya (owner) was professional and hospitable. The spaces were ideal for my business colleagues and the added touches (bottle of wine, organic fruit, SF coffee) made the space most pleasant. Unit is around the corner from great Thai (Khan Toke) and the best Tequila/Mex place in town (Tommy's). It's also a block from the Geary bus and pretty easy to get around.
I'd recommend for families traveling to SF (there is also 1 car parking) and businesses looking to save on hotels and who are comfortable sharing spaces.
Han and Candace
Taya was out of town when I origionally requeste the dates that I wanted. She quickly replied that they were available and kept the dates available for us even though she was unable to get me the paperwork right away.
When she returned she promplty sent me the forms and communcated with me during the whole process.
She even took the time to meet us personally at the apartment to show us where everything was located and to make sure everything was to our satifaction.
Everything in the apartment is exactly as described in the pictures and description. We could not have asked for anything more. The appliances are all new and the place is immaculate and well kept.
Thanks again, Han and Candace.
We really appreciate our stay. The condo is near a lot of activities and the public transportation is really convinience.
Fantastic Getaway with the Girls!
I met my two girlfriends in SF to celebrate one of the girls' 50th Birthdays. The place was lovely, with every amenity imaginable! We had so much fun in the city! The place is fairly close to Union Square, where we spent most of our time (about a $15 cab ride). We are looking forward to making this a yearly event! It was pleasurable dealing with the owner, also. Thank You Victoria & Taya!
girls get-a-way weekend
A perfect get-a-way weekend!
I planned a 4 night/5day stay for a group of 6 nurses. The designer unit was perfect for our stay. It is clean, comfortable and in a nice location. We spent time on the warf, in Muir Woods and Nappa. We all slept well after our busy days of sightseeing!
Taya was on her own vacation during our stay. She let us know in advance. Her brother-in-law met us in her place. What gracious hosts! We were not able to get to the apartment until 10 pm and alex was so nice. He checked us in and made certain we knew everything about the apartment and had several phone numbers before he left. The apartment was clean, the beds comfortable. It was one of our best renting experiences. The location was great, public transportation was around the corner as was a great coffee shop we frequented. Highly recommend renting this apartment.
Great family time!
We came into SF for an extended family event and we chose to stay at this condo because of the location and parking. We were 7 people with 4 cars and the place worked out great! It was clean and comfortable and quiet. It was great to be able to have breakfasts and late night wine and conversations at the flat without having to go out. I will definitely stay here again when I come to SF!
Fantastic - the way a private rental should be.
Loved this apartment, great location, clean and stylishly appointed and decorated. The owners make an effort to welcome guests and provide for every need, and the little touches such as fruit and wine on arrival, were the icing on the cake. There is a fire station across the road but we had no noise at all (they don't seem to turn sirens on until well away) and the training drills entertained the kids.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Convenient Place to Stay in San Francisco
Thank you Taya and Peter for excellent apartment stay in San Francisco. Your house is wonderful, easy transportation also groceries. Will stay at your place again when we visit our son next year.
Excellent base in SF
We had an excellent week in San Francisco - made all the better by having a very good apartment as our base. It's in a good location - to the west of downtown - about 30 mins away by a pretty frequent bus (38L for instance). Also - being out of the centre - it was well located for out of town trips (the garage space was handy) - as quick to get out over the Golden Gate going North or the 1 going south. Located across the road from a fire station on 26th (don't worry - no noise!) - so exciting to check out the fire engines for our younger son. The flat itself had everything that you'd need for a stay. Local shops good too. Taya and Peter excellent hosts. We arrived late at SFO, but no problem for Peter who met us at the flat to let us in. Anyway, definitely a great place to stay - and hope to be back someday.
Could not have been more perfect!
Peter was so warm and hospitable, welcoming us with simple, thorough instructions and a lovely bottle of wine and some fruit.The flat was exactly as represented and was ideal for us. We were traveling with our son and his girlfriend so we needed two bedrooms. Then because of some snoring issues, we also needed a third area. Thank God, the Katzes have a comfy pull-out couch complete with mattress topper and high quality linens so the pull-out sleeper had as nice a bed as anyone else. I loved the location. Loved being able to walk to the park and to the ocean. The days we went downtown, we located parking in advance, went straight to it, dropped off the car and walked around that area. It was fantastic that a rare parking spot came with the apartment and we thank Peter for some information he gave us the first day that led us to conclude that we should keep the rental car that we had planned on turning in. It turned out to be a great decision. I fell in love with the immediate neighborhood and consider getting to know Little Russia a highlight of the trip. After reading all I could in advance on-line about the cathedral on the corner, I paid a very respectful visit and went to services one morning. It was fascinating. Truly a glimpse into another world. Once hooked on Mother Russia, I became a regular at Tbilisi Bakery and brought home blintzes and poppyseed cake which were a hit for breakfast. Our son reported that Kitaro sushi on around the corner on Geary was the best he'd ever had. all in all, we can't wait to return and extend hearty thanks to Peter and Taya for being such a large part of a perfect vacation.
Great, affordable place to stay.
We were 3 adults and 4 children for the stay and the place was very cozy (2 kids slept on the sofa-bed in the living room). Peter & Taya are very friendly and helpful. There`s a parking spot, which is great but you can also easily go around by buses and Muni to where ever you want. Close to Golden Gate Bridge and Park. We had a great time.
great trip to California
Beautiful apartment, clean, homey, provided many amenities. Close to shopping. Friendly owners.
Carey De Tota
A Great Base for Our Stay
Not knowing San Francisco (it was our 1st visit) we weren't sure where to stay. This condo was a great 'home base'! Imacculate and well laid out and having off streat parking-fantastic! There a grocery store & drug store up on 32nd street (6 blocks away) that was great for food so we didn't have to eat every meal out. Coffee shop on the corner was very inviting too. The fire station across the street adds a nice bonus level of security. Taya and her associates were very helpful and avaiable for any questions we had. Great place to stay!
The place was immaculate and well stocked even providing a great gratis fruit selection. It provided easy internet connection for our ipad and the bathroom and bedrooms were immaculate and in all the place was well decorated. Taya is a gracious host and was very responsive via email and on the phone as well as in person. We really enjoyed the close proximity to Golden Gate Park and the De Young Museum as we walked there and back. Lots of restaurants a block up on Geary and not far from Cliff House. All in all we highly recommend this vacation rental.
Great location and clean safe environment
My wife and three teenagers attended the Outside Lands music festival this year and the location of the apartment was perfect. It was very nice to have a garage to park in and such a clean well appointed apartment to stay in. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in San Francisco.
Lads on Tour
4 nights in San Francisco!
We had a brilliant experience renting this apartment. It had everything inside that we needed and was perfectly clean. It was really good value between the 5 of us.
Comfy, friendly, place to call home
The apartment was wonderful with a parking spot as well. So clean, lots of dishes, towels and extras there was everything you need for a great vacation.
Absolutly the best!
We arrived Sat afternoon and Peter was there to greet us and explain everything. The condo is super clean! Comfortable beds! We had the condo with the balcony and that was beautiful. Would definetly recommend it. Taya and Peter were always helpful, and easy to reach. I loved those little special touches: organic hand wash and lotion, organic coffee, a huge fruit basket (of course organic!) and a nice bottle of wine. They make you feel right at home. We had a car and were thankful that we had the garage. We took the bus once, the stop is right around the corner. And it takes about 30 min. to get downtown. And the coffee shop right at the corner is better than any big name coffee shops!
The apartment is nice and suited for a family with three adolecents. The area is nice, good places to run and walk. We did not have a car and it took about 30 minutes to ride the bus to downtown. Taya and her sister were very nice to work with.

Safety Harbor, FL
Great value in a good location
We were traveling with both our teenage sons and my parents. The flat accommodated the entire group well-though one bathroom was a little challenging for the six of us to navigate. Taya was a good communicator and welcomed our family the day we arrived. We were very happy with how clean the apartment was and the amenities were nicely selected. Though it would have been nice to be a little closer to downtown, the Richmond area was easy to get around by foot and central to many of the areas we explored. I would recommend Taya's team for rentals if you're heading to San Fran to explore.
San José, Costa Rica
Next time in San Francisco I'm definitely staying here again!
A rental with all the comforts and conveniences of home
My family (husband and 2 small children) stayed in this apartment for three nights while visiting my sister who lives around the corner. It is in a fantastic neighborhood in San Francisco if you have small children, walking distance to Lands End, beaches, several playgrounds and Golden Gate Park. Small coffee shops and restaurants everywhere too. We were so impressed with the accomodations - fully stocked bathroom eith tons of clean towels, well-stocked and roomy kitchen with all the essentials, including a wide selection of spices. The complimentary wine and fruit basket were much appreciated and thoughtful touches, especially after a journey with children. And the parking spot...pure gold in San Francisco! What a wonderful place to stay. I recommend it 100%
shmulik and noa
ordering via the internet and paying for something you never actually saw is not easy, but in this case, we couldn't expect more. Traveling from far, with a baby, a child and 4 adults for a whole week we met Peter in the exact time for checking in. he was very nice and welcoming, explainig and answering all our questions. The appartment was completly clean. in a perfect condition- everything works, everythong is as convenient as can be. It is big enough for 6 people and designed beautifully.It is not located in the city center,but its a nice quiet neighborhood, close to the park, to the ocean and to many stores and resaurants and if you have a car, as we did, its ok. It is next to a fire department station - which could be noisy, but during the whole week only few times they went out and used the sirens, so for us it wasnt disturbing. They are very generous in every detail - many towels, fruit, wine, free phone calls and more. they thought of every detail- written explanation for all the facilities in the appartment, dvds, laptpop, books about the area, cook books, organic sugar, wide variety of spices and everything you need for the kitchen. Also Taya and Peter are available all day long for any question and request. Taya was very easy to reach during the whole process, she is fair, reliable and the service is excellent. We rent an appartment in mannhattan for the week before- it was ok, but the experience in san Francisco was far more than that. you see the effort they put in making your stay as convemient as possible. This was a great experience we will surely recommend.
Best Vacation Rental We've Ever Had
We were initially interested in another property but it was unavailable. This one was offered instead. What a great find? The property was very roomy for five people. Everything seemed brand new and of good quality. There were a lot of little features that made this a great place...the iPhone chargers in each room, TVs in the bedrooms and living room (for all our different TV watching tastes), computer with printer (for printing our boarding passes and researching restaurants), the welcoming bottle of wine and fruits, the comfy beds (better than a hotel), the thorough instructions on getting in, out and around the place, adequate seating for five at the dining room table, all the "right" amenities for cooking breakfast each morning, the coffee shop on the corner, the brand new grocery store just six blocks away, and very easy access to all the public transportation. Our first day we realized how far we'd be from all the sights and the cost of taking taxis. We ended up purchasing a City Pass that gave us unlimited access to all the different forms of transportation to get to and from our destinations. I would say this was the only downside of this apartment - that it was not closer to the city center. However, it was quiet and probably a better value than anything we could have found closer. The public transportation ended up being a nice respite for our tired feet after a long day. It's safe and everyone uses it. We'd recommend this apartment without any reservations.
Our first trip to San Francisco!
My wife and I had a fantastic time in San Francisco and were very pleased with our stay here. Victoria and her husband were extremely cordial upon our arrival, and a big help in answering questions about navigating the city. Our accommodations were spacious, comfortable, and quiet. Excellent amenities (laundry room and no extra fees for parking)!
The apartment was far more spacious than the pictures. The beds were comfy, and the area quiet and safe. The only negitive was the four flights of stairs.
Dan & Family
Cherry Hill, NJ
Great place, quality accommodations
We had a great time here. We especially appreciated: off-street parking, full efficient kitchen, quality bedding and furniture, computer, printer and wi-fi, 3 HD TVs, and washer/dryer. Owners are most hospitable and friendly, and took the time to show us all of the features of the place. This is the way to go, especially for a family of 4-6 who would otherwise be getting 2-3 hotel/motel rooms. Great kithen with all the equipment to make full meals, plus incredible variety of restaurants in walking distance. Interesting, safe neighborhood.
Fantastic apartment for our Girl's trip!
This place was awesome! Very clean and comfortable! There were 6 of us and we were very comfortable and did not feel crowded. The queen bed was so comfy that I wanted to bring it home :-) Taya and Peter are very sweet and helpful. We will go back!
We were a little hesitant to rent the apartment not knowing what we would find, but since the moment we walked in the apartment everything look very clean and comfortable. The owners are very welcoming and we will definitely stay there on our next visit to San Francisco.
Adelaide, South Australia
San Francisco home away from home
Welcomed by owner with basket of organic fruit and bottle of wine, shown through apartment and maps left to help us navigate our way around the city. Travelled from australia and with no car the apartment was close to public transport but a 30 minute trip to Union Square took the fun out of shopping.
Apartment was clean and tidy and amentities were great. Access to Wifi, computer and printer.
Huizen The Netherlands
Perfect appartment in a nice neighbourhood
We had a prefect holiday in May 2011 in this appartment. The neighbourhood is quiet and nice. Close to the Golden Gate Park and the beach. I did a lot of running just minutes away from the the house.The appartment is in very good condition. The WiFi is free and fast.
Parking your car in a garage on the ground floor of your appartment is luxury in SF.
Silver Spring, MD traveler
Washington DC metro area
San Fransisco long week-end!
This rental was one of the top I have experienced. Taya has done a remarkable job in having such a well stocked, comfortable place to use as a base for visiting San Francisco. It was a great place for two friends to enjoy--and spread out much more than you could in a hotel room! A plethora of soft towels, fresh organic fruit, a bottle of wine and a parking space, plus walking distance to public transportation, Golden Gate Park and tons of restaurants. And Taya had lots of books on San Francisco to help you plan your days. I would definitely come back again!
Wonderful apartment, very clean, great location. Great hospitality from Taya and her sister--the fresh fruit and wine was appreciated after a long drive. I would definitely return here.
Everything about this apartment was as descibed and Taya and her husband were lovely. The garage parking space was accesible at all times. The apartment was well appointed with and excellent coffee maker and ample supply of beans. The bathroom had more towels than we could've used in two weeks. I would definetly recommend this reasonably priced apartment to anyone visiting San Francisco.
A very pleasant experience
Very clean, very comfortable and well located - we were able to walk over to attractions in Golden Gate Park and had easy access to the GG Bridge for a day trip north and to the Pacific Coast Highway for a day trip south. Being able to use the computer was great and our daughters liked the selection of Dvds to watch. We had everything we needed and loved being in this apartment rather than a hotel.
I would love to stay here again!
Communication was very easy and service was just perfect. Loction was great for us - easy access to the city and also to Napa area. I would love to stay here again when Ivisit SFC next time!
Home away from home
Within 2 hours of emailing the owner Taya, she called me and confirmed availability for our stay. It was a last minute request for my brother's treatments at Ucsf, so her promptness was very much appreciated! She is a beautiful person who made our stay in SF so much easier than it would've have been staying in a hotel. The apartment was ideal for our family. We were welcomed with fresh organic fruits and a lovely bottle of Cabernet. This place was clean, comfortable, conveniently located, quiet, and filled with organic products (which we do at home), so it was a perfect match. There is also a nice patio filled with furniture and a BBQ. My family and myself highly recommend booking your stay with Taya!
Lovely high-spec apartment, all mod-cons you would need. The laptop computer and printer were a great extra, good for printing out tickets to attractions or planning your routes/excursions. Very easy to get about on the public transport (Muni 38 bus takes you downtown in 35 mins from Geary).
We were in the first floor apartment which was slightly noisy with the lower security gate banging shut when people left the building, children running up and down in the apartment above and also slight noise from the electric garage door below opening and closing. I would advise earplugs if you want undisturbed sleep due to the potential firetrucks leaving the station in the early hours across the road.
Apart from that we thoroughy enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment to friends.
We really enjoyed staying in this apartment!
We had a great 3 days staying in this apartment, it was very clean, had everything that we needed and was in a very handy location for looking around the city. The owner met us there and helped us to find everything, and the kids had their own room with bunk beds that they loved! We had fresh fruit provided for us and wine when we arrived and they had lots of information about the city accessible in the apartment which was really handy.
Amazing home away from home...
We cannot say enough about this destination. Lovely vacation rental. Centrally located. Wonderful owners. We had an amazing stay. Thank you for the very appreciated hospitality and warmth. We will be back again one day soon.
Great flat with everything you need
Stayed for four nights in March with baby and toddler. First time in San Francisco. Fantastic check-in service with everything explained in full by Peter. Complimentary organic fruit and wine were nice touch. Flat very comfortable, clean and modern. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only slight downside to note (that the landlords of course can not dictate) is that it is directly across from a Fire Station and we struck a busy period of call-outs.
Louise & Peter
Salt Lake City, UT
Welcoming "Home away From Home" apartment in Sf's Richmond Dist.
We needed a place to stay in San Francisco that was doggy friendly with enclosed parking & this apartment was ideal. It was clean, organized & very well appointed with all the amenities we could have wanted during our 3 day stay. There was a flat-screen TV in each bedroom as well as the living room, along with iPod docks, WiFi, laptop & printer, house phone with us long-distance included & welcoming bottle of wine & fruit bowl! The single bathroom while small, was very nice with an abundance of fluffy white towels on hand & it was wonderful to have a fully equipped kitchen & dining area to be able to invite a couple of old friends over for dinner. We were driving a rented Dodge Grand Caravan minivan & we were able to fit it into the enclosed secure garage parking spot which is a huge bonus in San Francisco! The location was great for restaurants & an array of different ethnic grocery stores, all within easy walking distance & our dog loved his morning walks down to Baker Beach where one can get a great view of Golden Gate Bridge. I would definitely stay here again!
The apartment was nicely furnished and exactly as described. Much better deal than most hotel rooms. Landlords were very helpful and accessible. I would definitely stay there again.
Better than I thought possible
We very much enjoyed staying in this flat. We visited San Francisco for a week during Spring Break. The location was very convenient (via bus) to everywhere we wanted to go -- much easier than using our car. We left our car parked in the garage and used the muni system to go everywhere.
The flat was very well equipped -- all the cooking equipment (including sharp knives) that we could wish, not to mention an complimentary large basket of excellent fruit and bottle of wine. We were a block or two away from many excellent restaurants. The furniture was comfortable, the beds were heavenly, and the neighborhood relatively quiet. We very much enjoyed having a separation of space not possible in a hotel, at close to 1/2 the cost. There were even interesting books and movies to use, and tvs with DVD players in both bedrooms plus the living room. Both bedrooms have an iPod station/alarm clock.
For families with young children, the flat includes a crib, high chair, and children's dishes.
Taya and her husband were extremely helpful, checking in several times during our stay to make sure we weren't having any problems.
Nice Apartment near Golden Gate Park with Parking and Laundry
Great location within walking distance to restaurants and parks
We came to SF to see the city and experience an area near USF. The location near affordable restaurants and walking distance to Golden Gate Park and the ocean as well as a short drive to USF, Haight ashbury..not lack of things to do. The parking and laundry were a huge plus for us. The unit is across from a firestation so the activity was pretty consistent but if you are used to some city noise it was just fine. We had our 15 and 18 year old stay in the unit with us and they were content with their wifi connnection and cable in their room for down time. We will be back.
Outstanding San Francisco Condo
Outstanding place to stay in SF
The condo was more than we could have expected. Everything clean, new, up to date. 3 tvs, fully furnished kitchen, internet, printer, perfect location. I just can't tell you enough how we all enjoyed the condo. One of the great things was a secure garage. No street parking problems. Taya and Peter are the best people and made quite a concession for us. This was absolutely the best place we stayed in all of our California tours. I can't say enough. Rent it, you will be very happy.
Great for larger families
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in San Francisco with our 3 kids and babysitter. The condo was very nice furnished and equipped - we didn't need anything for our stay. The owners were very nice and accomodating, and they even met us there after midnight to make sure we had what we needed. When my 4 year old got sick, the owner called me to help me find her medical care. She responded very quickly to all my questions before and during our stay.
St. Louis, MO
A really nice place to stay in SF...
This apartment has it all! A lovely/relaxing living room, comfortable bedrooms, parking, laundry, a quiet location for San Francisco, etc. The apartment is well cared for and very clean. I was so grateful that I could stay in a safe place that felt like home and was so close to my son and his wife. The owner responded to my inquiries promptly, and was exceptionally considerate and kind. I am hopeful that we will rent this place again in the near future. Thank you!!!
Hyères - FRANCE
Very nice vacation rental
Near bus, in the quite district, all is very nice in this appartment. All is ready for live like our own appartment.
Just one thing,for the 4 stars to "Location", is the soundproofing with the street. The Firemen's trucks have a heavy motor ^^. But it's not a problem with a wonderful appartment like this one.
I will not hesitate to go back here if I come back to san francisco.
Brian and Susan N.
A wonderful place to stay!
A wonderful and inviting unit in a great location. The unit was comfortable, the fireplace was great, and the fruit and wine was a lovely treat. The unit was stocked for us with gourmet coffee beans and tea. This unit is in a great location and very secure. Lots of great restaurants and markets in the area, easy access to public transportation and the availability of parking in a secure garage.The batroom is beautiful and having organic soaps, lotion and shampoo availabe was a bonus. The unit is up to date with lots of electronics - HD Tv's, Ipod docking station and computer/printer and more. This is a great unit and we will definately return. The hosts/property managers do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Every rental unit experience should be like this!
The house is very nice and clean. Our family like it a lot
My families and I took two weeks vacation in Ca and spend three nights at San Francisco. Overall we liked the house a lot. The houses is "Very" clear and nice and havs all of thinges you need even with complimentary fruits and wine. If really want to say anthing which I didnt like. I would say it has no elevator, so you have to carry your luggages up to 4th floor. Even with this, I would say this was best house I ever stayed. If next trip to SF, I would like to stay over there again.
Monica & Jose
The apartment is fully equipped; you can found all that you could need and more.
Taya and Victoria are very nice and kindly persons, definitely we recommend to go there. If we would return to San Francisco, we don't hesitate where to go.
Very comfortable, well appointed, modern & organised apartment
Would definitely stay here again. Close to the main bus line and all attractions
Very, very comfortable!!
When we checked-in, the apartment was in perfect conditions, better than showed by the pictures. Reception by one of the owners was very professional and friendly (including a bottle of good wine and a complimentary touristic guide of San Francisco). All the elements in teh apartment were very new and clean. Parking available in same building is great for a city like San Francisco. Thank you to Taya and Peter.
wonderful unit . everything you need away from home
we truly enjoyed our stay . it was the best place to stay . the owners are very generous and well equipped . the house is warm and cozy . we will recommend it and we will come again .

Family holiday away from home
The apartment was clean and comfortably furnished, and the kitchen was amply and well equipped, including a courteous and generous supply of staples-oils and vinegars, spices, cleaning supplies. (The lack of baking pans was an exception, and the stove was a weak point). The location is good-a nice residential area just a few blocks from Golden Gate Park and around the corner from Geary Blvd, with a wide array of shops and restaurants, and a bus that goes to the heart of downtown. The garage parking space that comes with the apartment is a real plus, since street parking is nearly impossible, and the apartment is conveniently located for driving out of the city both to the south and over the Golden Gate to the north. Bus connections are so good, however, that you might choose to leave the care where it is for outings in the city. The Fire Station across the street from the apartment offers some entertainment value through the day. In all it met a variety of needs and made for a wonderful Christmas celebration.
Don & Dil
Excellent comfort - A Home away from Home indeed!
The apartment was in an awesome condition. It was clean and tastefully furnished. We enjoyed the comfortable beds and the fully equipped kitchen. Everything about the apartment was perfect except for the four flight of stairs up, which was kinda stifling for us and our very heavy luggages. Check in and check out was easy and convenient. Thank you Victoria for waiting for us patiently... Really, really really enjoyed our stay in Taya's apartment. We wish they have a similar apartment nearer to Union Sq... Nevertheless, we had a great time!
Excellent Experience in real city.
This apartment is across the secluded street from the fire station. No problem, they never turned the siren on until a block a way. Over the weekend they never woke us. You are two to four blocks from small grocery stores with fresh fruit. The area has a wide variety of ethnic restaurants. Three block walk from great views of Golden Gate Bridge. However, you are a bit far from Cable Cars and Union Square. We found a good way around this though. Take a car to Fishermans Wharf and park. Then ride the cable cars from there to downtown. You avoid the obvious downtown traffic issue. The museums in western San Francisco are minutes away. We would stay there again.
The apartment was beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and well supplied. We truly felt at home! The fruit basket was a treat, the gourmet coffee was appreciated and the wine was a nice surprise. Thank you for your attention to detail.
Enjoyed our stay at this cute unit!
We just loved this cute unit with 2 bedrooms, it was clean, had ammenities like coffee, tea, towels, soap, etc. Full kitchen available for cooking (if you wish). Our host was very gracious and attentive, no issues getting in contact or asking questions about the place, area, etc. The only downside is that there are stairs to get to the top floor unit, but at the same time, we were happy to be up there too. Location is very handy and close to coffee shops, restaurants and groceries, as well as to transit. We also parked our full size jeep in the garage with no issues.
This was my first time not staying in a hotel. Taya made my experience very comfortable. The unit was very nice. My family had a great stay.
Definitely will stay again next trip.
Wonderful week in San Francisco
This is a beautifully appointed apt. with all the amenities you could ever need and then some. Taya provides organic coffee, fresh fruit and a bottle of wine - very classy touches. The apt. is located in a comfortable multi-cultural neighborhood with a staggering variety of restaurant choices. The Muni passes made it very easy to come and go around the city. The only 'ding' in an otherwise excellent review is that there is a fire station across the street. There were no sirens in the middle of the night however don't expect to sleep past 7am. I think children would find the location fascinating. Communication with Taya was excellent and I thank her for a very positive vacation rental experience.
Comfort away from Home
The unit is furnished with every amenity; even those you don't even think you'll need while on vacation! Taya and Peter have taken the time to ensure every detail is tended to and you feel as if you are at home. The location is great for moving around the city. If you rent a car the parking garage is definitely a big plus while the 2 Muni passes ensure you have no parking problems when visiting heavily visited areas. I strongly recommend this rental to anyone visiting the San Francisco area. Thank you Taya and Peter.
New York City
I have friends (5 people )come to visit for 4 days. im looking for a place that full furnished ,have enough space for us.
when I saw the picture I really like it, location is the most important for me. I need to stay away from downtown that might noisy at night. this apartment has many restaurants nereby and 24 grocery in walking distance. nice bedrooms big screen tv ,fast speed Internet .
they also have printer laptop and photo paper provided.
this is my first time with vacation rental,I admit that was very concern about payment . I have called Taya she's understand me and answered all questions. I've got a refund only a few days after that.
all of my friends love the place and had a great time
staying here. you'll feel like you are at home . complimentary wine and fruits and a bunch of stuffs you need^^. thank you so much Taya and Peter
This is a great apartment for a San Francisco stay!
This newly renovated 2nd floor flat in the Geary neighborhood is very comfortable and well-equipped. Even my husband and son who are picky cooks were happy with the kitchen and equipment - they whipped up a great meal from provisions obtained at the nearby grocer, meat market, and produce vendor. Nice new bathroom and comfortable beds. The apartment is within walking distance of Golden Gate park and the many interesting shops and restaurants in this quirky San Fran neighborhood. Taya and her husband were helpful and friendly. There is even a parking place, a real premium in this location!
Perfect stay in SF Richmond District
My friends and I were attending the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in Golden Gate Park and were grateful to have found this amazing apartment. The place was spotless, comfortable and full of amenities: The complementary bottle of wine, organic coffee, and fresh organic fruit were wonderful touches. The kitchen is fully equipped if you want to eat in or there are numerous restaurants right down the street on Geary if you prefer to dine out. The parking space in the garage is an added plus, as parking in the neighborhood can be pretty tough to find when it's busy like that weekend. Moreover, the apt manager was extremely helpful and responsive. I've already booked the place for next year!
A lovely apartment - a home away from home. Very welcoming hosts - fruit and wine are a lovely touch and there are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores close by. It's conveniently located to public transport and it's about 30 mins to the city centre by bus. The apartment is on the third floor so be prepared for stairs, and it's opposite a fire station, so there's some occasional street noise, but we had a very comfortable and pleasant stay.
Garden Grove, CA
Enjoyable and comfortable stay
We enjoyed the stay and the beds are very comfortable and the place is very clean... we really felt at home and wish we could have stay longer. Taya is very accommodating and we really had an awesome stay! We will definitely come back!
Home from luxuious home
We stayed in apartment 3 and 4 for the long labour day weekend and wish we stayed longer . It was excellent from being met at the apartment and being shown around the high spec apartments. The manual was really high standard with plenty of information. The whole booking process was really professional and as someone with slight OCD about cleanliness I really appreciated the freshness of the towels and linen and the condition and cleanliness of the apartment. The apartment comes stocked with plenty of needed bits and pieces. It really felt like home from home. Also Taxis were easy to pick up from this location and didnt cost too much. Golden Gate park and the beach were walkable too! We cant wait to come back.
Pleasant and Comfortable
We had a great experience at this vacation rental. The apartment was beautiful and most important clean. This apartment is equipped with everything one would need when away from home. I had friends over for dinner and everyone was comfortable and relaxed.
The apartment was spotless, comfortable, very well outfitted. The location was excellent for our needs on this trip.
Although it was not a serious problem for us, this street is very noisy.
The owners were exremely hospitable and very caring upon our arrival.
4 tired tourists
Better than a hotel
Excellent apartment with all mod cons. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were made very welcome and enjoyed the complimentary fruit and bottle of wine. However this apartment is on the third floor so be prepared for lots of stairs.
Charles & Karen Lewis
Clean, Comfortable with Excellent Service
Taya and her husband are very attentive owners and very welcoming to their guests. The condo's are clean, nicely furnished with everything that is needed to have a comfortable stay. The garage parking is a wonderful bonus. The condo is located close to Golden Gate Park and less than a two-minute walk to the Geary Street Bus Line that can whisk you to downtown in under 15 minutes. You will enjoy the condo and the treatment you receive as a guest.
Staten Island, New York
Excellent two bedroom.
Loved the place, great welcome gift of wine and fruit. Very clean and well maintained. Hostess was very congenial. It is three flights of stairs so some elderly or disabled people may find it difficult. I and my family loved the place.
Great place to stay in San Francisco
We had 2 nights in this lovely apartment. It really is as lovely as the photos suggest! Everything is there, even games, books and a computer for you to use. The location was great, an easy 20 minute drive to downtown. Peter welcomed us to the apartment and showed us everything very thoroughly. We loved the gifts of fruit and wine for our arrival. All in all a fantastic place to stay.
Very comfortable and well-equipped apartment
We and our 3 adult children and all loved the apartment, and would have been happy to stay longer. Very comfortable and elegant furnishings, very generous supply of fruit and wine and essentials in kitchen, including excellent coffee. Easy to drive to from coast road on arrival and frequent buses to downtown along Geary if you want to avoid the traffic mayhem and parking there. Local groceries, coffee shops, banks and restaurants all walkable. Can't blame the owners for the weather (where did the sun go). The mist rolling in one night made for an interesting atmosphere when we walked up to Pacific Cafe where they were very welcoming and the fish was good.
Great vacation condo for family
we are a family of 5, with young kids. we stayed at the condo for a week, at the end of July 2010. the apartment is clean, extremely well equipped, and very spacious. We enjoyed cooking and eating at the apartment. the location is great - walking distance to great restaurants, grocery, coffee shops and what not. 10-15 min drive to down town and around the corner from Golden Gate Park and Presidio. Taya and Peter katz were very pleasant and responsive to any request we had. it was pleasure staying at this apartment and we highly recommend it for anyone who wishes to visit SF. great value and much better than hotel room that would have cost the same !,
All the comforts of home!
We loved this apartment and hope to return someday. In fact, we didn't even want to leave! The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. The apartment was nicely decorated and had 3 hi-def tvs. The kitchen had all you would need to cook and serve meals for 6 to 8 people. The bathroom was very nice and towels were plentiful. We washed them once during the week we were there in the coin op washer and dryer in the garage. It was so nice to have free parking in San Francisco - a rareity. There were all sorts of little amenities that made our stay more pleasant, such as tea, coffee, soap, shampoo, iron, laptop computer, books, dvds, travel brochures, etc. We had a wonderful stay!
Good Value Rental in Quiet Neighborhood
Nicely appointed rental in one of San Francisco's quiet, quaint neighborhoods. Having your own parking spot at no extra cost is a wonderful perk!
Dodge City, Kansas
Privacy with comfort
Like everyone else has said, Taya & Peter were very easy to work with, the apartment is very nice and the wine & fruit were great. I really liked the ease of the public transportation and how close it is to the apartment. Several good restaurants within 2 or 3 blocks (Belly Burgers is a really good burger joint). Hopefully I can return and stay here again.
A great find!
We stayed here for two nights with our young daughters (ages 6 & 9). The apartment was clean and comfortable! Loved the wine and fresh fruit provided by the owners. Plenty of soft towels in the bathroom, and comfortable bedding in the bedrooms. We've stayed at a lot of rentals and this was one of our favorites--so many amenities.
This apartment is on the fourth floor, so prepare to walk up the stairs. Not a big deal (our girls loved it!) and Taya's husband was so nice to help carry our stuff upstairs, too! Being able to park in the garage was a huge plus for us, since many of the hotels in SF charge $40-60 per night. We had SF City Passes and used the bus, cable cars, and F train to get around. There is a fire station across the street, but it was not an issue. They had a few calls while we were there, but it was not distracting/loud. There's a cafe down at the street corner which was really nice.
Thanks Taya! We had such a great time here and appreciate such a positive experience!
Great time in San Francisco
We - party of 5 - really liked the place. It has everything one could ask for (speaking kitchen ware, entertainment, space and so on). It's conveniently located in a rather quiet area with bus stops taking you downtown in a reasonable time.
The owner, Taya, is great to deal with. She showed up as agreed and gave as a good tour around the place. In the living room we found a bottle of wine and a filled fruit basked with complements from the owner.
If i'll be back to Frisco any time soon, i'll definetely try to stay in one of Tayas places again.
Such a great location- Taya good not have been a better host.
The house was clean,bright with everything extra to make our 9 day stay wonderful. I can honestly say I left my heart in San Francisco!
Modern, Clean and Comfortable
It is with great pleasure for me to recommend Peter & Taya's vacation rental in San Francisco. This is the second time that my family and I have rented a home through Vrbo and I have to say that we are loving traveling even more; the vacation homes really do "add" to our travel experiences.
As soon as I chose this vacation home, Taya made herself readily available to answer any questions and to assure me. Upon our arrival, Peter was at the house to give us a tour. And yes, there was indeed a basket of organic fruits, a bottle of wine, a nice selection of teas and fresh coffee beans waiting for us.
The location was very convenient and having the garage was appreciated. The rental is directly across the street from the fire station and fortunately, we never heard the fire trucks.
The rental is very clean, modern (with flat screen tv's in each room), and comfortable.
I plan to return again and would strongly recommend the home to family & friends.
A lovely apartment in the Richmond. Not only did we like the apartment decor and all the extras ie,. bottle of wine, teas, coffee, fresh fruit, staples like olive oil, balsamic vinegar, we loved being right around the corner from some of the best restaurants in San Francisco. Taya and her family were always helpful and friendly.

A perfect stay
My family recently traveled to San Francisco for a wedding. Initially, I struggled to find the right accommodations for our family of 5. Choosing to stay in an rental unit was absolutely the best decision. The designer unit managed by Taya Katz was fantastic, beautifully maintained, immaculate, quiet and comfortable. The apartment provides quick and easy access to just about any destination in the city without the congestion of downtown. I would certainly recommend this unit to friends and family and use it again myself on future visits.
Comforts of Home!!
This place had all we needed for a wonderful stay, VERY comfortable beds,fully
equipped kitchen, laundry, parking, & convient location. Taya & Alex welcomed
us like family, right down to the complementary fresh fruit and bottle of wine!!
The owners are customer service personified. The apartment had everything we needed, and, if it didn't the owners made it clear they would provide anything we needed within reason.
The apartment is well situated for grocery, restaurants and public transportation.
I least liked climbing stairs. I most liked the attitude of the owners.
Great location, great stay
We will definitely consider staying here again and highly recommend. Flat was clean,
spacious, well appointed, and desirably located. Taya was great to deal with and we
all (young kids included) had a blast!
Home away from home, but better
We visit San Francisco frequently to see our
children, and we have never had better
accommodations than this beautiful apartment. We
found attractive and comfortable furnishings, a
large and well supplied kitchen, a well designed
bathroom with loads of towels, plenty of lighting.
We were astounded at the attention to detail. We
found a complete set of dishes, flatware, cooking
supplies, paper products, coffee maker, coffee,
tea, herbs...I could go on and on. I was able to
use the wifi to keep in touch with my e-mail, and
the apartment is supplied with its own laptop
connected to a printer. I had a fall and needed
something to clean up a scrape. There was a first
aid kit stowed in the bathroom vanity. Best of all
is the parking. I can't tell you how many hours
we've spent in the past searching for a place to
park our car late at night, only to have to hike
blocks. The apartment comes with garage parking.
Come home late at night, pull into the garage, and
you are at home!
This truly felt like home. We were delighted to be
able to invite our children for a real family meal.
We live on the east coast, so these occasions have
Taya and her husband Peter were wonderful hosts.
We were delighted to find a large assortment of
fresh organic fruit and a bottle of wine waiting
for us. We managed to use it all during the week
we were there. They were also available whenever we
needed them, and responded promptly to our
requests. We felt that we were leaving new friends
when we left for home. We can't wait to return.
