Week in San Fran
Taya's place was perfect for our stay. The apartment is exactly how it is described and looks in the pictures. All little things were thought of, like the organic coffee beans and coffee machine with grinder. Although the cafe just walking distance down the street was hard not to go to every morning! You should definitely check out that cafe. Easy parking, quiet area, right opposite zoo and the beach. The train/tram stop is literally one block away and this will take you all the way to downtown in around 30min. I would definitely stay here again when I visit San Fran.
My family of 4 and our little dog enjoyed our stay in Tayas home in San Francisco. It's a perfect location for a family stay and has all of the amenities needed. Taya was a very gracious host! She provided a bottle of wine, coffee beans, and fresh fruit. I've stayed at a lot of Vrbo's and can tell you this property is one of the best. Thanks for the attention to detail!

Great place to stay in San Francisco
For our family of 9 this was the perfect place to stay. Away from city, but only a $2 train ride to the heart of SF. With great facilities, clean, spacious, secure and made very welcome by Taza and Peter on arrival. Cannot fault...
Ted and Melissa
The ocean at your doorstep!
I was concerned that we would not be able to easily access the ocean from the apartment. However, it was literally a five minute walk. The apartment was clean; the hosts were very responsive to the minor issues that arose with the internet connection. Because our family stayed for a week, we really appreciated having a washer and dryer on site. We would definitely consider renting here again. Thank you for making this a positive experience. If you do rent a car in the city, be aware that getting in and out of the garage can be challenging with a larger vehicle.
A comfy home base
Taya and Peter have outfitted this lovely apartment so that it is comfortable and perfectly equipped for the traveling family's needs.
We are three adults and a teenager, and the three bedrooms and two baths were just right for everyone to have their own space. We all slept comfortably in the beds-- plenty of linens and pillows. (We didn't need the crib in the master bedroom, but thought that was a nice touch-- no need to pack a porta-crib!)
The baths were sparkling clean, and included plenty of towels and t.p. We were also appreciative of the soap, shampoo & conditioner, and hair dryer provided.
We didn't do any cooking, but the efficient kitchen is well-stocked with all the necessary items and appliances, and was exceptionally clean, just like the rest of the apartment. It was a nice touch that organic coffee beans and tea were provided, as well as an abundant bowl of fruit and a bottle of wine!
It was nice to have a washer & dryer in the unit so that we could pack less. An ironing board is also available.
We loved the location just a block from the beach, which is beautiful for walking. The neighborhood is quiet and feels very safe.The Muni L train is also just a block away, and it was easy to get to other parts of the city from there. Grocery stores and pharmacies are nearby. Sloat Blvd and the Great Highway that runs along the beach were convenient routes for excursions north and south of the city. We also appreciated having garage parking at the house.
There is an extensive library of maps and city guides at the apartment, which we found very useful. When Peter first let us in and showed us around the apartment he was charming and informative, making us feel right at home from the start.
My one disclaimer is that you must be able to do stairs to stay here, so it would not be appropriate for anyone who can't.
We so enjoyed having this beautifully appointed home as our home base during our vacation-- we highly recommend it!
Comfort and Hospitality
An excellent place to stay. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Peter greeted us and gave us a brief orientation of the apartment and area.
Our family traveld to SF to support my aunt who was having open heart surgery. As stressful as the situation was we found comfort and much needed rest in this home. Thank you for your hospitality.
Very good house and host
Taya's house is very clean and comfortable! She prepare every thing in kitchen and bathroom! She even provide a computer and printer though we never use them. Taya and her sister are very patient with my poor English. Thank you very much!
Rancho Palos Verdes
Great Stayin SF
We had a great time in this Town House. It was perfect for our 2 kids and our parents. The neighborhood has everything we needed with in walking distance. Owners were great!
Christmas at the Beach
Our holiday stay at the SF Beach House was no less than perfect. The layout was great for our party of six. The rental had everything we needed. The owners welcomed us upon our arrival with a bottle of wine and fresh fruit. We loved the walks on the beach which is less than block from the rental. Markets and restaurants are close by too. The garage was a bonus since parking is hard to come by. We wish we had time to visit the SF Zoo directly across the street. However, we did have dinner at the Cliff House on our last day and saw an amazing sunset. We loved this rental and plan to visit again soon.
Comfortable and Relaxing
Clean and roomy, this property accommodated 7 adults comfortably. Beds were very comfortable, including the bunk beds. Owners are very attentive and friendly and made for a smooth rental process. Literally across the street from beach access and the zoo, would be a great place to come back in the summer. Price was just right and fair, some maintenance could be done (some loose handles, new cookie sheets) but nothing big.
Great place to stay
The stay at this place was great!! Very clean and comfortable. We ended up not getting in till late due to flight delays and lost luggage, but the owners were extremely accommodating, meeting us at 10pm. This home is located only a few doors from the beach offering a perfect opportunity to fix a cup of coffee and go straight to the beach. The surfers are out early. The place is safe and still there is a garage you can use to pull your car right in - remote door opener was provided. Thank you so much for offering your property.
Perfect spot for a girls' weekend or a family vacation. This apartment easily fits seven. The owners were very nice and accommodating. The apartment was clean and the owners provided us with fresh fruit, chocolate, and a bottle of wine. The beach and the zoo are right across the street from the apartment. Union square is only about fifteen minutes away. I would definitely stay here again!
One of the best rentals I have ever had the pleasure of staying
This rental was phenomenal in every way. It was clean, modern, classy, comfortable, and much more. The owners were extremely accommodating and welcoming and they made the experience that much better. A perfect distance to everything in the city and located right next to a number of public transportation hubs was an added benefit that saved our group no end of money in cab fees.
As I said in the title, this was one of the best rentals I have ever had the pleasure of staying at and next time I go back to San Francisco I wont be looking anywhere else for a place to stay.
Great family retreat in San Francisco
A great place for home base during a recent family escape to the city. There was more than enough room for everyone and having the parking space was nice as well. The unit had everything we needed and was warm and clean. The beach and ocean were only a hundred yards away and the entrance to the zoo was right out the front window. Great for the kids and an early morning run.
We saw dolphins playing and lots of surfers. There were sea shells and sand dollars all over the beach which was great for the kids. The quick walk to the Java cafe was easy and great for breakfast.
The only issue might be that the location is on the west side of the city. However getting down town was easy either with a cab, driving or using Uber. We love Uber.
We would and will return and this will be a great spot for the girls to take the kids for a weekend at the beach. Also a great deal when you consider the cost of multiple rooms and paying for parking down town.
Alex, one of the owners, was jovial and hospitable and got us off to a great start. Thanks alex and Taya.
Everything you could want!!
Have rented many apartments in the us and with a family this ticked all the boxes. Everything was as advertised and worked, location was great for transport, no problem with check in and out especially since we were late driving back from Oregon and the fruit and wine was a nice touch as a welcoming gift!! Highly recommended!
Sioux Falls, SD
Clean, modern and caring owners make this a great place to stay. Wish all Vrbo properties we have stayed at were this well kept. Beds, linens, showers and dishes - all were clean and as good as at home. Loved the fact that the Muni station is right there and we could go anywhere without driving.
Excellent stay in San Francisco
Everything was really good at this rental - the place was immaculate and well furnished with more than enough room for the five of us travelling. Anything you could need was at this rental - they already had washing powder, toilet paper etc in the home which saved us having to go out and buy the essentials like we did in other rentals.
There was a tv in every room, two bathroom and lots of closet space. The property is located right around the corner from the tram and is also on the bus route. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and would stay here again should I return to San Francisco.
We had a wonderful time in San Francisco and renting this house was the way to go. The home was right across from the ocean which was great. It was right next to public transportation into downtown Frisco which made it very convenient. We didn't use our car except to go to dinner one night. The home is clean and our hosts were very gracious. I would highly recommend this for a family or two or three couples.
This is a nice clean apartment right across SF Zoo & the beach. Our family enjoyed a lot.
Handy to most things SFO has to offer
Clean and as described. Lots of beds (although blinds struggle to keep out street lighting) and well-equipped kitchen. Good wi-fi and cable TV in all bedrooms an added bonus. Car essential but Parking is tight and shared with upstairs flat. Overall a pleasant stay.
Perfect For Our Needs
We (six adults) stayed in this apartment while attending the Outside Lands Music Festival in Golden Gate Park. It was a great location and we had a lovely time. The apartment is well appointed; plenty of dishes, paper products, etc. And, the owners have considered all the details and left nothing out. We especially were happy with the parking situation. It's rare to find a spot in the city where street parking is free and you also have a garage space. Wonderful!!
San Jose, CA
An Excellent Experience
The location is very good. While a long ways from downtown SF, it's proximity to the Zoo, the beach and the L trolley line to downtown is excellent. The house was well appointed with all the requirements we needed and more! We found ample parking within a block of the house.
The only slight drawback is the rather heavy traffic on Sloat Blvd, especially on the weekends.
this unit was outstanding
This unit was exactly how it was described. The owners were easily accessible and answered all of our questions. I would definitly stay here again and would highly recommend it.
at the beach and zoo
The Katz rental was perfect for our family needs during this particular trip to The City. We felt they went out of their way to make their place welcoming and comfortable for guests. Should our needs be the same in the future, we certainly would stay there again.
Great home base for a San Francisco vacation
We stayed at Taya's and Peter's home from June 21-25/13. Our unit was on the second floor and there was plenty of room for my husband, myself and our three adult children. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen very well-equipped, laundry facilities were in unit and allowed us to pack lighter because we could put a load of laundry on when necessary. The location was literally steps from the ocean and the San Francisco zoo was right across the street. The location allowed us to easily explore the city and return back to our unit to relax at the end of the day. Parking was secure in the first floor garage.
Peter and Taya were very welcoming and provided us with a basket of fruit and a nice bottle of wine. They made themselves available via phone or email or text so it was nice to know they were there if we needed anything at all. Laundry soap, coffee, tea, olive oil and many other staples were stocked for our use as well.
One last thing, our security deposit was returned within a day of our leaving the unit and was processed as a credit to our visa card. We would highly recommend this unit for travellers on vacation and also for anyone needing a great place to stay while in the San Francisco area.
Great Location, Hospitality and Comfort at Ocean Lovers Paradise
We spent five nights in this very generously stocked condo. Victoria, Taya's sister, met us when we arrived for a detailed but brief orientation which we greatly appreciated. The fresh fruit and wine provided upon our arrival was a very nice touch. There is nicely supplied kitchen, with fridge, dishwasher, food disposal, and an awesome combo coffee grinder/brewer, with good coffee beans provided. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. There are nice strong showers. We appreciated having a garage to park one of our cars in and we had no problem finding street parking for the second car.
We could walk to the beach, which was less than a block away, and the San Francisco Zoo was literally right across the street. The Java Beach Cafe is about two blocks away and serves great food and coffee. We were very impressed that our deposit was returned immediately after we left. Overall, our family had a great time while staying in San Francisco and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Lovers Paradise.
Eivor and Kurt
Yuba City, Ca.,
A great location by the sea, the beach, the zoo and, of course,
Our daughters were visiting from Sweden and Texas with families and we wanted a place to stay other than a hotel while we went sightseeing in the city. We found this rental after looking on the Internet and reading lots of reviews and we were very happy with our choice.
Taya's husband Peter greeted us as we arrived to the condo and he was great at explaining everything and making us feel welcome. The apartment was nicely furnished and had all possible amenities. It was nice to be greeted with a beautiful fruit basket and a bottle of wine also. The beds were great and all eight of us slept comfortably.
We appreciated having a garage to park one of our cars in and we had no problem finding street parking for the second car. The train station was right there as well as buses if you wanted to take the muni transportation.
We could walk to the beach, which was less than a block away along The Great Highway and the San Francisco Zoo was literally right across the street. Our grandchildren from Sweden wanted to go to the Zoo and they did and loved it.
The Cliff House is located 5-10 minutes by car north of the condo and we went to the Sutro Restaurant there one evening and had an excellent dinner.
There was a nice shopping center close by the apartment with a good grocery store.
With not much traffic, it took us about 20 minutes to drive to Fisherman's Wharf. We parked at Cost Plus where you have two hours free validated parking and after that, the hourly fee was reasonable.
We were very impressed that our deposit was returned immediately after we left. Also, we left an item behind that we forgot to pack and Taya was kind enough to mail it to us.
Overall, our family had a great time while staying in San Francisco and the Ocean Lovers Paradise.
We were met on arrival within 5 minutes of phoning and given a very thorough tour of the house. The house was perfectly positioned; just around the corner from the tram stop, across the road from the beach and 50 yards from the zoo. We were close to local diners and shops and cannot recommend enough the coffee and breakfast sandwiches from Georges Zoo, a shop a few hundred yards up the road. The house easily coped with 8 people and was comfortable with all modern conveniences and a large garage. It was a great place to unwind in after a day touring the city.
Los Angeles, CA
Clean, Quite and Best Location in SF
When I first plan our family trip to SF, I was not sure how I could make reservation to stay since we had 7 people and needed 3 rooms to stay. I tried to book a hotel with the location but it cost me more than $500 per night. When I searched the web and found this property, it was just perfect fit for us. We also enjoyed staying and love to come to stay with the property again. Thanks Taya for your help and everything.
Marilyn and Family
A wonderful stay
There was 9 of us coming and going at times we all had a wonderful time. Plenty of towels and hot water, and everything we needed to cook with, wine was excellent.The home was even bigger than we expected and the ocean was just a few steps away, I don't think there was any complaints about anything, thanks go to Taya and her husband both for the wonderful home and time they shared with us.Thank you so much Marilyn and Family
Best Place We Have Stayed
Thank you Taya for a lovely stay. Communication was easy and fast, amenities were excellent and there was such special attention to small details. We felt as comfortable there was we did in our own home. The location is fantastic and it is the perfect place for a family. Highly recommended!! It was clean, well appointed and quiet. We will return again.
Everything we needed!
My wife and I, our son (23), and my mother stayed at Taya & Peter's place for 5 nights, and we found it to be everything that we expected. A nicely supplied kitchen, with fridge, dishwasher, food disposal, and an awesome combo coffee grinder/brewer (good beans provided!). The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and is next to a very nice zoo, a block from public transportation, and only a short stroll to the Pacific Ocean. And it had a garage! We very much appreciated the convenience of having free Wi-Fi, as well as the fresh fruit and local wine left for us. And if you like a nice strong shower, you'll like the ones in this place. We also found some good places to eat nearby (John's Ocean Beach Cafe - smells funny but the food was good, and The Pizza Place on Noriega), and a very interesting grocery store with stunning array of fresh and live seafood (Sunset Supermarket). More conventional grocery (Safeway) also nearby. Just so I don't sound like a yes-man, I had just a few detractions - I wouldn't call the building's exterior or nearby neighborhood cozy, but that's probably due to the proximity to the ocean (punishing to exteriors), and although we found it more than accommodating, the picture of the combo living/dining room might make it look bigger than it is. So that's basically it. Again, we really enjoyed staying here, and hope to do so again in the future. Oh, and if you go to the famous Cliff House restaurant, just a couple miles up the Great Highway, don't forget to get a Ramos Gin Fizz!
Port Hueneme, CA
Hospitality and Generosity abounds in Ocean Lovers Paradise
We spent five nights in this very generously stocked condo in the southwestern section of San Francisco located directly across from the entrance to the San Franciso Zoo and one block from the ocean. Public transportation was also just a block away and the best way to travel into the city. The Java Hut just up the street serves a great capacino and our 4 year old granddaughter loved their fresh croissants. Victoria, Taya's sister, met us when we arrived for a detailed but brief orientation which we greatly appreciated. The fresh fruit provided upon our arrival was a very nice touch and immediately served to the children who were getting hungry after their flight from Seattle. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Close to Beautiful Beach
While the Zoo across the street was tempting, it was the Pacific Ocean and miles of beach just one block away that captured our attention and time. House easily absorbed our two families with the kitchen being very serviceable. Wifi, clean soft linens, spotless bathrooms and off the street parking made our visit easy and enjoyable.
We stayed in this rental with another family and it was great! The location is wonderful, right across the street from the zoo and like 100 feet from Ocean Beach. The owners were very helpful. They met us to let us into the unit and showed us around and how to use everything. Very helpful! The rental is has three little restaurants you can get food etc within walking distance and there is also a plaze with a grocery store, frozen yogurt and lots of other things right up the street. We would definitely rent this unit again!
Best compromise on access and convenience
The apartment could not be at a better location for people driving to SF. It has its own garage space and is near enough to downtown plus just steps from the beach. Taya and Peter and extremely professional people to deal with.
The apartment itself was in excellent condition and clean. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were spotless, and kitchen came complete with all the implements one could possibly need to prepare dinner for 8.
If I were to nitpick though, the dryer seems to not work very well and adjusting the aC thermostat to cool the place was a mystery. We ended up opening windows to regulate the temperature. But those are minor issues that didn't detract from the location and quality of the place.
Ewa Beach, HI
Our stay at this rental was great. It was easy to find and had plenty of space for our group of 8. Peter checked us in & explained everything. There's not a lot of rentals with this price that have 2 bathrooms & a parking stall. It's not close to downtown but if you have a car it's no problem getting there. It felt like home for 3 days :).
The Bennett Family
Las Vegas, NV
What a blast
We had a wonderful time and it was so nice to be so close to the beach. What I loved most was all the little things. Organic tea, fruit and wonderful shampoo.
Thank you for a wonderful place to stay.
Dirk from Danmark
Roskilde , Danmark
New Year in San Francisco
we were very strained , especially my wife ,how the apartment is - sometime the pictures are better then the reality - but here it was fully sufficient ! Very clean , fully equipped ( especially the kitchen) , the furnishing was perfect - a good bed to sleep , and Wifi which was functioning without any problems.
And not to forget the residential area : great ! - near by the sea for a morning walk , a bus and tram stop near by the house ,and in 40 Min. you stay in the center of SF. We can only recommend this apartment - we enjoyed the stay and we would come back at any time
Orange County, CA
Close, yet not too close
We had a wonderful stay here. We had plenty of room for all 7 of us. We took walks along the beach every day. We took the Bart into the city one day and drove to the wharf the next. We would definitely stay there again.
Since we made the reservation Taya was kind and very helpful, we were greated kindly, with fruit and wine, they were very eager to help us in all our stay. All pictures of rooms, and all areas are true to what you see once you are there. Wonderful family vacation in San Fransisco, excellent choice in rental, close to supermarket, beautiful area, incredible access into downtown San Fransisco.
I have recomended this rental to all my family and friends, will come back again no question about it.
A lovely apartment with all you need
We recently stayed here for ten nights (a family of five adults) and found the apartment to have be extremely comfortable with everything we needed. After an initial problem on arrival - wuickly resolved - Taya was wonderful, very friendly and willing to go the extra bit to ensure we had everything we needed. As a group of five we found the apartment had plenty of space for us all but I think for a group of adults with the maximum for the apartment (I believe 8) it may have felt a little crowded. We had a dodge grand caravan and had no problems getting it in and out of the garage except when the people upstairs had parked badly coming over the line into our side of the garage. It is opposite the zoo and minutes from the beach but it is about 20 - 30 mins drive from the Golden Gate Bridge and 45 - 60 mins from Fisherman's Wharf, this wasn't a problem for us but is something you should bear in mind if driving and need to be somewhere for a specific time. The only downside is the noise, ignoring the fact that the guests upstairs were very noisy for a couple of days, there is a lot of outside noise especially in the mornings. Neighbours going out, passing traffic and the public transport nearby all mean that it is anything but quiet in the mornings. If you are used to this sort of noise it won't be a problem but if you live somewhere very peaceful you will notice it. Overall we were very happy with our stay here and would not hesitate to stay again if we were in San Francisco or to recommend it to friends and family.
Excellent location, great rental
We feel as though the rental came exactly as advertised. Some of the organic fruit was moldy and the hall bathroom blow dryer shorted out with flames, but these are relatively small issues and we otherwise found it to be a great place for 5 people putting on a wedding.
New Orleans, La
This was a great base for our very enjoyable visit to San Franci
Olp is a beautiful apartment in a convenient location for visiting San Francisco. We were able to use public transportation instead of the hassle of driving and parking. The apartment had eveytthing we needed to feel at home.
Wondeful week-end away...
My girlfriend and I spent the weekend here and had a lovely time. Taya was very cordial and pleasure to work with. The place was clean and the amenities were thoughtfully laid out, right down to the Ghiradelli chocolate on the night stands. Really nice knife set in the kitchen too. The neighborhood definitely has a lazy beach feel to it. The place is across from the zoo and about a 3 min walk to the beach. There is also a quaint, but very tasty little cafe right across the street. Be sure the try the apple pecan pancakes... might go back just for those. :-)
Ed and LaVerne
50th Wedding anniversary spent in SF
We wanted a place where we could have our grown children with us for our
anniversary celebration. We found it in this place. We had plenty of room for everyone, everything we needed was there and Taya was great to us.
We would recommend it to anyone visiting SF. It was easy to get to, and it was a good area to walk; close to the beach, the zoo and Muni.
We would do it again.
The Power Family
June 2012 stay
We were a party of four adults and the living/kitchen space is somewhat 'compact'. That said, the facilities are great and as described. The tv was great, with all you could ask for; all premium channels and 'recordable tv' for the soccer, to watch at one's leisure;a laptop for internet junkies and tvs in every bedroom allowing everyone some
'me time' where required. The house is near but not on the beach and is a Muni/streetcar' ride from downtown.(25mins approx.) Ocean beach is great for walking, you can hear but not see the sea! We knew the area, so we chose to stay here and were reasonably satisfied.
San Francisco Vacation
We absolutely loved our stay in this rental. The pictures don't do it justice as it is much roomier than it appears. Everything was nicely furnished, with lots of great little touches everywhere. Fresh fruit, a bottle of wine, tons of new towels,paper products and a fully stocked kitchen including coffee beans for the coffee maker! There is a beautiful flat screen TV in every room with digital cable and free WiFi and a laptop and printer! The location is fantastic, right across from the zoo and ocean and the great garage is an absolute essential in SF. We couldn't have been happier and Taya and her sister were the best to deal with. Super communication and very friendly and helpful. We will be renting from them again.
Chuck and Lisa
The perfect location.
The home was very comfortable and clean. Well equiped with all necessities and with 4 flat screen Tv's you would never have a problem watching what you wanted. In San Francisco using your vehicle can be a pain.The Muni public transportation system was extremely convenient. We parked our car in the garage and never used it the whole 8 days we were there. I have stayed at other rental properties in the past. Overall this was the best.
Sharifah and Azha
Everything was provided for!
We arrived late afternoon after a long drive from la but Peter and Taya were very accomodating to provide us the key to the apartment regardless the time. Peter took the time to show us around and how to use the gadgets in the apartment.
My children enjoyed ataying there. The size of the place was just nice for 7 of us and we didn't have to fight for TV remote since every room had TV. Every equipment was working well (except for the squeking dryer) and most importantly the free Wifi was working great.It made our stay much easier and stress free.
The apartment was located very near to the Muni station which was convenient for those who wish to use public transport. We chose to travel by car, so the garage parking was a great bonus. We could come and go without worrying about parking space which might be a concern in some parts of San Francisco.
Overall, we loved our stay in Taya's place. Thank you Taya for your hospitality and the thoughtful basket of fruits.
A truly memorable and wonderful stay!
We arrived very late in the evening yet Taya graciously and warmly welcomed us. She took the time to show us the rental's many amenities and how to contact her if we had any questions or concerns. Her wine and fruit basket gift only enhanced the welcome she gave us.
We found the unit to be very comfortable, clean, well appointed and furnished. It was like our own home because there was nothing that the unit lacked. All we had to do was buy groceries for our stay.
The rental's proximity to a shopping center ( 3 minutes away), public transportation (just outside the apartment), Ocean Beach and hiking paths were a plus. We also appreciated the enclosed garage that came with the rental. It made getting in and out of the apartment great as it minimizes exposure to the elements and we did not have to look for parking which in San Francisco is hard to find. This was specially important as we were traveling with an elderly parent who easily catches colds.
The units Wifi connectivity and having a tv in each room is great as not everyone wants to watch the same show. Having Wifi also made it easier for us to check email and print our boarding passes without looking for an internet cafe to do this.
The beds are so comfortable that all of us had great nights sleep. One of our family members who usually has a hard time sleeping slept 'like a baby'. She actually enjoyed the luxury of sleeping in during our stay.
Our vacation and stay in this unit was truly wonderful. It was easy to come and go as major roads and highways are just minutes away. The least thing we did not like is having our vacation come to an end.
We highly recommend this place to anyone. In fact, we are already talking about coming back and staying here again.
To Taya--a big heartfelt Mahalo Nui Loa (Thank You Very Much)for your warm hospitality and for allowing us to stay in your rental.

Clean and Comfortable Place
We enjoyed our stay, Taya was a great host. We visit SF often and traditionally stay in the city. We decided to try something a little different and this worked well. The Muni L line is literally one block from your door step and a straight shot into the city, very convenient. The only slight dissatisfaction I can mention is the noisy neighbor upstairs. I thought he had lead feet by the way he stomped around in his unit. Aside from that, great place, very clean, and again, Taya was awesome!
A great place to stay with kids
Great place to stay especially with kids. The bunk beds were a plus and even better was a parking space for our rental car! The fresh fruit, wine, spices and coffee were a wonderful bonus for us. The house was clean and the owners friendly. We made use of the washer and dryer as well; so much better than a time share or hotel stay. Thank you!
Location was near the ocean and the zoo. A bit of a drive to downtown, but easy to do.
I recently stayed at this condo with some girlfriends. The location was amazing! It is right across the street from Ocean beach so in the mornings we took long walks and there is a good breakfast spot on the next block over. All in all a great time and Taya was wonderful to deal with.
I would highly recommend this place for your next San Francisco stay!
One Big Happy Family
Great Location and amenities!
This was perfect for our family! We had plenty of room, there were stairs as it was 2nd level. We especially loved all that was provided with the full kitchen (the fruit/wine were great extras) laundry (dryer did squeak) and garage fit our SUV great. Everything was so convenient and just as described! Our children loved being able to walk to the beach everyday and the zoo was fun too. Beds were comfy, but rooms were light at night so next time I will bring a eye mask. We have a large family of 7 so we drove our car around the city and didn't mind that drive at all, but the muni was right out front as well. Thank you Taya we would love to stay again sometime it was great!
Value for money
Modern apartment, a block from ocean and right across from SF zoo.
Near Muni lines and near highway.
Cons - Far from Bart, doesn't quite have an SF feel.
Great family vacation - right next to the zoo!
Our stay was great - we were promptly checked in and given all the information we needed about the property and the area. The off-street garage parking was secure and great for loading and unloading kids. We walked to the zoo - wish we could have made time to get to the beaches! Thank you for the great stay and wonderful hospitality! We will stay again if we return to San Francisco!
West Linn, Oregon
Spring break vacation
The house is very clean and has all the emenities of home. The beds are very comfortable and the kids loved having access to a computer and flat screen tv's in their own room. One block from the ocean is not bad, but would have preferred an ocean view. We loved the location and the close proximity of sites. Lands End is beautiful and a must see. Great breakfast restaurant next door with great service. Beautiful ocean despite the fog and rain :)
The home was very relaxing and comfortable.
Peter Katz was very welcoming when we arrived and we found the home to be very well equipped and comfortable. We had a total of seven people in the home and we never felt crowded. We liked that the home was right across the street from the zoo and just a short walk from the beach. It was also very easy to drive from the home to downtown San Francisco. Peter and Taya were very easy to work with and very helpful during our stay. We liked the private garage and the pizza place that is just down the street. We highly recommend it for dinner in one evening. We would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Fantastic in Frisco
I can't begin to describe the comfort of your vacation rental. The place was beautiful. All the comforts of being in my own home. Directly across from both the beach and the zoo gave the folks who didn't tire easily something to do while the others rested. The L metro was only steps away and Victoria's tip on the $21.00/3 day bus pass made the city access so easy and only 30-45 mins away. Victoria was an absolute godsend, with her wisdom of the city, the city maps and great advise on all the must-sees of the San Francisco area. You guys made our stay in Frisco a delight from the advise, fresh fruit right down to the bottle of wine ya'll furnished. Thanks a bunch and if ever in the San Fran area again the Bucket List Group will definely stay with ya'll. Travel agent for Kings Compass, ken
Comfortable place for families
We stayed at Petr and Taya's place for three days in March. We are a family of 5, and having a separate bed for everyone was wonderful. The location was directly across from the zoo, and the ocean is right down the street. Having a garage for our rental car was nice in San Fran. We had a small issue in the bathroom, but Petr came over immediately and resolved the issue. Unfortunately, it rained for the three days we were here, but it made it more enjoyable having a nice home to stay at. I would recommend this place to any family wanting to enjoy San Fran.
Great rental in great location
I would like to recommend this place to stay if ever in San Fransisco.
You can walk across the street to the zoo or the ocean. The condo was perfect to try to find your way around,whether you have a van to put in the garage or take the muni.It is a very safe place for walking or running on the trails right there by the ocean. We had all we needed in the kitchen.Close enough to places to eat or shop. I loved to be able to wash and dry clothes right there, so we did not have to take many along. The beds were very comfortable and the shower had more pressure than ours at home. There was plenty of space with Tv's in every room. We worked with Taya and her husband, who were right there to answer any questions we had. Have a fun time and rent this place, we were there 11 days and it was very clean comfortable, like you were at home
Great place, great hosts!
There were 5 adults in my party and we all loved the place. Peter was there to greet us upon our arrival, and even went so far as to drive one of us to the store (nights are cold by the ocean) since we didn't secure transportation until the following day. Everything was as described in the ad and then some. And as further evidence of the wonderful people they are; after departing we realized we had inadvertently left our train tickets at the apartment. We didn't have time to return to get them, but I contacted Taya and even though the cleaning service had already been there she had them go back and actually retrieve the tickets and mailed them to me so that we could get reimbursed. Now that's hosptitality! I would definitely stay again.
Feel like staying at home
Look exactly as what the picture show, very comfortable and feel like staying at home. Taya is very friendly, helpful and thoughtful,provide us with a compliment fruit basket and wine.
Better than advertised. We had a great stay. Great Location. Clean and roomy. Unbelievable amenities.
Salt Lake City
Perfect Place to Stay in San Francisco
This is the perfect place to stay in San Francisco. The apartment is cute and stylish. There were nine of us and we all slept comfortably. Taya let us check in early. We had so much fun, would stay here again! Close to downtown, grocery stores and cute little cafes. The perfect place.
Adelaide, South Australia
Aussies loving San Francisco
We were hesitant to book something from the other side of the world, but Taya did nothing but give us confidence in the process. Everything ran smoothly, even with delayed flights etc. The place was spotless and welcoming when we arrived, and the location very much suited our need for space and a little down time. Having said that, we found San Francisco really easy to navigate, and this a great location to start from. On the whole, couldn't recommend it highly enough. The coffee machine, wine and fruit are an indicator of the 'extra mile' Taya is prepared to go - very aussie.

Salt Lake City
Close to the beach. Great stay. A bit of trouble getting the keys but everything worked out and we loved the stay!
Great stay during Thanksgiving Week!
We had a family group ranging from 6 to 10 through the week. It was a great stay. When we were a big group of 10 for 3 nights, there was plenty of linens for the sofa sleeper. The vacation rental was well appointed, super comfortable. We went to the zoo with the kids and grandparents, right across the street! We hiked around the beautiful Landsend trails, ran every morning on Ocean Beach and took Muni into the city leaving our cars behind. This Sunset neighborhood area is just really a sweet spot to stay in the city. Thanks Taya and Peter for a wonderful stay. We'll be back!
The condominium was a very nice place for the price. I had only a few concerns about the condominium.
• The entrance door had ductap around the doorknob on the inside of the door.
• Some of the face plats to the outlets were not secured to the wall.
Other than the two items stated above the location was great.
When pricing out two or three hotel rooms for our group, this place was less expensive, and really nice. The full kitchen, two bathrooms, and nice living/dining area are just great. Throw in the one garage spot, with another parking spot by the garage door, and it was very close to being perfect!! (No chef on duty!) So, I recommend this place 100%
Great home base while in SF!
Although not in downtown SF, it was a simple drive and also close to other great attractions like Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, ocean and coastline drives. Very comfortable sleeping arrangements for our family of 4. The owners were great to deal with.
Vacation for 5
Comfort and style
Beautiful home! Very comfortable, has all the amenities of home plus a welcome basket of fruit and wine! Beds were comfortable, everything in the kitchen worked, 2 baths, plenty of towels, washer/dryer, couldn't have asked for more. Just a short walk to Ocean Beach and San Francisco Zoo, short drive to Golden Gate Park. S.F. Muni stops just steps from the garage, but if you have a car I would recommend taking it into the city as the Muni takes about 45 min and gets crowded. This is really a wonderful place to stay.
Brigham City, Utah
Very nice, lots of room, huge garage!
We are so glad that we stayed at this condo for our vacation. It was so much nicer than staying at a hotel. It was very clean with lots of room. It was nice to have a kitchen and laundry. It saved us a lot of money to be able to get groceries and eat in the condo. We ate our breakfasts in every day. The location was great for going to the zoo and the beach. We were also very pleased with the large garage. We brought an extra large suv and it still fit. That was great! Taya met us at the condo when we arrived. She was very nice and showed us around. We were very impressed with the condo and would most definitely stay there again.
Convenient, comfortable and friendly place to stay.
Owners were very accomodating and responsive to questions and needs. No hasstle check in, simple agreement and straightforward to work with. Complimentary wine and fruit was enjoyable. Would definitely use this location for future trips.
The place was comfortable, clean and cosy. They even had a crib and a high chair which was very handy as we were travelling with a baby. the service was professional.
Rothesay, New Brunswick, Canada
This was a perfect place for anyone to stay. A home away from home. Our granddaughter , who is 17 months loved the animal picture book and it was so safe allowing her the run of the place.
The complimentary wine, chocolates and fruit were an added bonus. I must say the place was impeccable- clean with all the amentities one could wish for and I think my husband just might buy a coffee maker like the one you provided- fresh beans ground every morning.
Thank you for allowing us to stay. The close proximity to the beach and water was great as well.
Hear the Wild animals
Great condo. Clean and spacious. Easy to check in and out. Every basic that we might have needed was provided, including some yummy organic fruit. The owners thought of everything. The location is amazing for those of us that choose to be close to the beach, zoo, L street car line direct to downtown and Java Beach which serves up some pretty amazing food. Laptop, printer with paper and wifi were provided. My daughter got to use an electric tea kettle for the first time. And best of all, off street parking for two cars. You have to live in the city to appreciate that one. I would absolutely stay there again. The kindness and caring that was shown to us was so nice. Thank you for making it possible to retreive my daughter's cell charger before we left town.
Come to the city, stay at the beach, walk to Java in the evening when the people leave the zoo and the animals come out and chat. You will love it.
Los Alamitos, CA
Convenient location to Ocean Beach and Zoo. No worry parking with garage access. Quiter neighborhood. Nice amenities. Easy drive to other San Francisco highlights. Public transportation available.
Wow! is all I can say.
I must tell you that when I booked the condo I was not sure what expect but I was more than I expected. I didn't call prior to my arrival but you took care of that on a last min. Alex was great on telling us about not only the condo but also how to get around. We used the Metro system for transporation. I didn't use one three day pass that can be found in the condo book. The dates are not marked so I hope the next guest can use it. Again Thanks for a nice home and we will be back!
A Home away From Home
Taya and Peter were great hosts and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and that the condo was well equiped for our stay. My entire party enjoyed themselves and would definitely stay here again on our return trip to San Francisco.
We had a great time in your home. The location was perfect. We would definitely come back.
We had six adults, three couples and the place worked out wonderfully. Taya Katz was a joy to work with and very prompt on communication. We had a wonderful time and will certianly consider another stay here. Thank you!
Perfect accommodations for a family
We were visiting SF for a week, and traveling with our kids, ages 5 and 3, and our 80 year old father. The kids loved the room with the bunk beds, and grandpa loved having the master suite with his own bathroom, and ample space to place his walker, computer, medications, etc. There were 4 TVs in the condo, so everyone was happy to be able to watch their own programs at any time. Well stocked kitchen, large washer/dryer, WiFi, and an enclosed garage space for the car sealed the deal! We enjoyed rolling out of bed to visit the windy beach every morning before returning to the condo for a hot breakfast. Although there was easy access to buses and the Muni tram, we did not get a chance to use it during our stay...but we would highly recommend this rental, and are likely to stay there again in the future.
We have been to SF so many times and always stay with family or in hotels in the Cow Hollow neighborhood. Because we were taking my son's girlfriend we wanted to have more than a hotel room. This place was really well appointed and easy to stay in. Not super close to the action, but a really cool part of SF. They have gone out of there way to make it comfortable--tv's, fruit, towel racks, garage door opener, wine, clean and comfortable.
Peterborough, Ontario, Canada
A great place for a family vacation
My family and I just returned from San Francisco where we stayed in Taya's vacation rental apartment. It was nice to be so close to the Ocean for walks and the path was great for running. We appreciated being able to park our rental vehicle in the garage. We enjoyed all the amenities of home and it was nice to have the kitchen stocked with tea and coffee as well as lovely fresh fruit. A grocery store just down the street and easy access to the Muni were important.
Everyone in our group commented on how comfortable the beds were and because we had busy days we needed a good nights sleep.
The only issue we encountered was the noise from the apartment above, especially late in the evening.
Taya was quick to respond to any questions prior to our arrival and was helpful once we arrived.
We all enjoyed our visit and it was nice for our family to be able to stay together.
we spent a wonderful time during our stay in SFO,we were a party of 7 (2 couples and 3 teenagers)we were very confortable,the house was clean, and exelent equiped
Taya ,was kind and helpful with us
all you need is a car, although the Muni stop is very close downtown is a bit far
I strongly recomend this house,it was perfect for us
Our Home away From Home
There was a group of 9 of us, all graduate students from the la area, on a weeklong field trip, from Tahoe to Oroville and ending in San Francisco. We would typically rent hotel rooms but this time, we thought we'd try something different...
Taya's condo was great for us and provided us with a home to call our own for 4 days. We were welcomed with fresh fruit, chocolates, coffee, tea, clean bedding, extra towels, dvds... the list goes on!
We all very much enjoyed the condo in our own ways, whether it was a walk to the beach, watching a DVD or lounging, we all took advantage of the condo's great location & amenities.
p.s. A+ for location, we were close to everything, the beach, the parks, the S.F. zoo, restaurants, public transportation
Comfort & Elegance
We recently stayed in this lovely apartment while attending a fundraiser for San Francisco State University's Baseball & Softball program. The location of the apartment was ideal and the fantastic weather added to the wonderful experience. The apartment was filled with special and elegant touches for us to enjoy. We all loved the beautiful San Francisco pictures! This apartment is ideal for a long term vacation in the Bay area and we will surely be back!
Prague, Czech Republic
Amazing and very comfortable place in San Francisco
If you want to feel like home while traveling to San Francisco this is the best place to get. No hotel gives you such great and comfortable (like home) feeling as this flat does. Everything was perfectly clean and very very nicely furnished.
We were enjoying our late home arrivals after trips "home" to enjoy even further late stay up.
Location is very great - beach is not even 1 minute walking and you can long path along the beach for running. San Francisco park with zoo is right across the street.
Unlike other places - this flat offers garage place and if you would like to enjoy SF on your feet - tram stop behind the corner takes you directly to the center of San Francisco.
I have to thank again for a amazing place and home like feeling in San Francisco in it.
Five Star Stay all around
I've stayed in vacation rentals in Hawaii, the Oregon Coast and in Washington state. Our stay in San Francisco was one of the best rentals we've been in. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the unit, everything was pristine. It was very nicely done. It was kid friendly, there were complimentary Dvd's for the adults and children, kids books, a high chair and crib for the baby to use as well. We were right across the street from the SF Zoo (which by the way costs $8 for parking) walking distance to the beach, and in close proximity to grocery/convenience stores at Westlake Center.
Definitely would stay here again the next time we visit SF.
Great Value and Easy access to all parts of the Bay area.
The condo was so comfortable that we felt at home right away. It was furnished with just about everything you could need, the beds and living room furniture were all very comfortable and like new. The kitchen was lovely and was stocked with coffee, tea, spices, garbage bags, napkins and paper towels.
The condo was perfectly clean when we got there. The location is great, being only a block away from a main streetcar line and several buses. The zoo and the beach are just across the street. What was very convenient was that the condo came with a garage, so we didn't have to worry about finding parking on the street.
The Stonestown Galleria is only a short bus ride away, and Lakeshore Shopping Center is within walking distance, as well as some small restaurants, a pizzeria, and a great little grocery-deli that turns out to be rated #2 in San Francisco for making deli sandwiches.
The owners of the condo were super friendly, great at keeping in touch with us, and made sure we had everything we needed.
We had my wife and our four children 25, 24, 14 and 12 yrs old in the condo and never felt crowded. We were in a hurry after a couple of weeks staying there to catch our plane back home and realized after getting back home that we had left some items there. The owners were kind enough to ship the clothes and eyeglasses to us. We loved staying here and would do so again!
Home away from Home
Our 2 familes with 3 kids age 3 to 10 stayed in this property for 1 week. We totally enjoyed our stay there. Taya has thought of eveything to make a comfortable stay, its a home away from home.
We arrived in San Francisco from Orlando on 7 December and had planned to drive up to Napa Valley to stay for 2 nights before coming back to San Francisco. However, we could not accomodate all our bags into the rental car to go to Napa Valley. I asked Taya and she kindly allowed us to store our bags in the porperty prior to check in. We even got recommendations on wineries and restautants in Napa Valley.
We were greeted by Taya's husband, Peter, upon check in. He showed us around the property and gave us information on good food around the property. There's also a file complied by Taya with helpful informations on food and getting around. There was a big basket of organic fruits, a bottle of wine and even chocolates courtesy from the owners. We parked our car in the garage. Grocery is conveniently down the road. The neighbourhood is quiet and we never had any problems with the neighbours at all. The beach is just steps away, fantastic views.
The kitchen is well equipped for making breakfast and we even did some simple cooking on some days. The organic coffee is great, I still miss it!
Taya even made sure that we will be taken care of by her sister when she was away travelling. Thank you Taya, Peter & Victoria for extending great hospitality to us! I highly recommend this property and will definitely come back again.
We go to San Francisco every year around Christmas to see the Nutcracker and shop.This property was perfect for our Family, Three nicely furnished bedrooms, and literally across the street from the Pacific Ocean and the Zoo. Even though there is plenty of parking on the street having a garage with an opener was very nice. We were pleasantly surprised with fresh fruit, Wine and Swiss chocolate. I highly reccomend this property. Thanks again Taya and Victoria
Very close to the Zoo, nice place to stay
Stayed for 3 nights - lots of room, and a garage to park in. Coffee shop and pizza place a short walk away. Beach is very close. Found checkin/out process very easy. Had a good time - can't beat the location. Modern decor, very nice TV/DVD/DVR system in all rooms.
Location is on the 2nd story of a 3 story building, giving you neighbors both above and below. Didn't know this prior. Late one night one of the neighbors played loud music, which was annoying, since we had a baby asleep. Neighbors weren't shy about running up the stairs and slamming their doors frequently.
Had to clean the highchair before using. I would recommend replacing the high chair, as it has an awkward stance, straps weren't adjustable, and the tray's clamp was broken. (Taya, I forgot to tell you this when we left).
Both soap dispensers in the bathrooms were broken, and the master bathroom toilet started to constantly run the last night. Reported these issues upon leaving, and she apologized, and said they'd be fixed later that day.
It was right after Thanksgiving, and all garbage bins were full, giving off an odor. Since we arrived on Saturday, and collection wasn't until Monday, I pulled out all bins from the garage to avoid the odor.
Other residents in the building had access to the garage. We were wary of leaving anything in the car, so we took everything out and alarmed it each night in the garage.
Plenty of space to cook and eat, and a grocery store is a short drive away. Excellent Thai food place up the road.
Taya was easy to work with, very understanding, and said she'd talk with the neighbors.
Overall, it was a positive experience. Taya was very helpful and eager to make our stay a good one. If you are thinking of this place and have a small child (less than 2 years), give Taya a call to discuss accommodations. I'm sure she'll do everything possible to make the experience a good one! If you don't have small kids, you should go for it without hesitation.
Response from Taya Katz - 12/11/2010
Wanted to thank you again for your stay with us. I appreciate the detailed review of the property. The unit is not advertised as a single family house so of course there are neighbors both above and below you. I do have to say that we have never had any problems our tenants who have been living there for over 2 years. Perhaps the holiday season led to more traffic then normal for them. I did speak to them and they greatly apologized for any inconvenience. In regards to the garbage again the holiday (Thanksgiving) led to more then usual and it so happened that your 3 day stay was in the middle of the once a week pick up. Although other tenants do have access to the garage as it is shared, it is fully secure in an enclosed building and we have never had a problem in the past. The problems with the toilet and hand soap dispensers were addressed the same day you left and both are working great. After considering your input we have replaced the high chair with a brand new one.
Our goal is to provide as comfortable a stay as possible and to address any/all concerns right away.
Looking forward to your next stay with us.
Thanksgiving in San Francisco
"I did a lot of research for a place to stay in San Francisco for a memorable Thanksgiving vacation for my family of five. I found this three bedroom apartment and immediately fell in love with it. We arrived to chocolate on every pillow, bottle of wine and fresh, organic fruit and coffee that were a great touch and a warm welcome to our much anticipated vacation. I loved the location, right across the street from the ocean and very close to all the stores one would need. It was great only having to walk across the street to the Muni as we used it almost everyday. The apartment was very clean and came equipped with all the items we needed for our Thanksgiving meal. The owner was very thoughtful and even made sure there were enough serving bowls and a mixer there for us to use so we wouldn't have to transport it with us. The garage was a nice treat not having to worry about parking once we got there. All in all, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my family and friends. It's a great place to stay!"
grass valley, ca
great location, great place to stay!
When we arrived, it was a bit late in the evening. Taya had her sister and he husband meet us. What a wonderful couple! We were only sorry to have not met Taya, but next time we will!
The house was above the street and a large garage held one of our cars and we were able to park the other one right behind the garage. We could see the SF Zoo right across the street. The ocean was just through the signal at the top of the hill, easy walk!
We enjoyed staying at this house and we have it on our favorites list for next time we go to the SF area!
Taya was so kind and so hospitable. Not all places make families welcome but she went out of the way to stock childrens books and family movies in addition to the wine and fruit she set out for us. The location was perfect. Near the zoo, Goldon Gate park and the beach. The place was spotless and I really appreciated how well stocked it was.
Definitely a place to recommend and to return to.
Perfect for us!
This is a beautiful, comfortable, clean apartment steps from the ocean and the zoo. It is even nicer than it appears in the photographs. There are too many thoughtful touches to mention. We stayed there with my mother and mother-in-law for our son's wedding at the zoo, and it was absolutely perfect for that. We were happy to be able to entertain friends and releatives in the living/dining room. The price is reasonable compared to an equivalent number of motel/hotel rooms. An outstanding option for the Sunset area.
Mother from Vancouver
Home away from home!
Taya was great to work with from beginning to end. She was very accommodating. My family and I (8 adults,1 toddler and 1 newborn) traveled to San Francisco for my son's wedding. This home gave us just what we needed. The accommodations were perfect and having the train right around the corner was a perfect way to commute into downtown SF. 2$ per person beats driving into town and paying for parking plus it was just fun! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Having a washer and dryer came in very handy. Each couple enjoyed having their own space furnished with a flat screen TV. Thank you Taya for sharing your lovely home. We will definitely be back.
Mammoth Lakes, CA
Great place, great location, great hosts!
This is a beautiful apartment with all the amenities of home. Well taken care of, thoughtfully furnished, and right across from the beach! Our family had a great time in the City, visiting the Bluegrass festival, and walking on the beach. The zoo is right there too, but we did not have time to take advantage. Muni stop right out the back door and a bus line up Sloat take you anywhere you need to go. Our hosts were very nice and extremely helpful. I highly recommend staying with the Katz's! Thank you for a very memorable vactation!
A home from home in our favorite city
Convenient location, lovely and clean and friendly service
The six people of our group all loved the design and the interior of the flat. It was very clean, everything worked as it was intended to and it was the best appartment we had in the whole month of our stay in the USa.
We arrived two hours early but we received the key to the appartment only 10 min after we called the owner.
I loved our stay in this condo. Accomodations met and exceeded our expectations. Taya was extremely helpful with any requests or information we needed. I will definately reserve this unit again next time we visit the city.
This Place Has It all!
The condo was fantastic and played a big part in the wonderful experience our family enjoyed in San Francisco recently. It was sparkling clean and well equipped with every convenience, including washer/dryer and computer/printer. The location was perfect...only a block from the beach and we had fun walking along the shore and splashing in the waves. It was also only a block from the Muni connection so we were able to get an easy start on navigating our way around the city. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were super comfortable with plenty of extra bedding and towels. We give this place the highest recommendation in every way!
Bribie Island , Queensland, Australia
The Condo at Sunset Beach is well located and handy to public tr
This is a great place to stay if you want to get away from the busy city centre. A 50 metre walk to the Muni provides easy access to all of San Francisco's attractions. We had a car as well so were able to shop for groceries about 2 km up the road and there is a nice little cafe over the road for a morning coffee or breakfast. The Condo itself is great with plenty of amenities and Taya and Peter were able to resolve any queries or problems immediately as they live close by. A fantastic accommodation option in SF and well priced.
Great place to stay when visiting S.F.
One of the nicest places we've stayed. Rented the property for one week while on vacation with our teenage grandsons. Everything was perfect.
The flat is very nice and roomy and well equipped with everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The rental agent, Taya was very helpful and professional.
A+ Rental, Creature comforts+, Location+, Amenities+
We stayed here with 8 extended adult family members. Taya met us at the door, gave a briefing on the house and environs and left a lovely assortment of organic fruit and bottle of wine for us to enjoy. You know location, location, location: this place has it -- across the street from the beach where we walked and took family photos with the beach and waves as the back drop. The zoo is in front of the house and within walking distance to the Java Beach Cafe, quick market and muni "L" stop to many points in the city. We went easily to Union Square and Chinatown for 2 dollars. There is garage parking for one car and plenty of street parking for other vehicles. It is also only about a 20 minute drive to the SFO airport for pick up and drop offs and 1/2 hour from Sausalito. The kitchen is ready to go, to make a snack or a meal. My chef nephew whipped up a great evening meal, with blended drinks and breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen. The coffee maker with organic coffee beans was nice to wake-up to as well as the assortment of tea. The grocery is nearby. The home has comfortable bedding in 3 bedrooms, just like pictured and 2 pull out couches that work best w/one left as is and the other pulled out and slept 8 adults very comfortably but could fit 10 if need be. There was plenty of hot water for showers and to get ready in the 2 full bathrooms (sort of unheard of in SF). Such a nice comfy atmosphere all contemporary colors, designer bedding, flat screen Tv's in all rooms. Great living room to hang out and play games. We only used the living room TV but the use of a laptop connected to a printer was a nice addition. We were able to hook our laptop up to the printer as well to the USB cable provided. So, If we return to SF our Home away from Home will be the Ocean Lover's Paradise. Yes, 5-stars plus from this family. Taya - A hearty Thank you!!!
A perfect for our extended family to celebrate.
Your home was perfect for us! We felt so comfortable and it was convenient to everything we wanted to do.
What a great weekend honoring our family and our son's graduation. Thank you for creating such a warm home for us to celebrate and relax.
It is a wonderful place to stay in San Francisco. It has everyth
It is located in a quiet neiborhood so you can rest perfectly. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms has everything you need.
The bathrooms are excellent. Everything is new and very clean.
It is very close to the beach and just in front of the zoo. So it is very easy to get there.
Taya is a wonderful host and she gave us organic fruit and a bottle of wine, it was a very nice compliment.
We stayed at the condo for 5 days and four nights. We had two couples and one single ranging in age from 25-30. We loved our stay in the Bay area.
The rental was really clean and set up perfect for our arrival. Beds were very comfortable. We had wine, fruit basket, and chocolates by our beds. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own breakfast every morning. There was even ice in the freezer, which was perfect for our evening cocktails we made by using the bender.We had everything we needed in the condo.It would have been nice to have been closer to down town just so we could have seen more of the night life of San Fran.
Location is a 1/2hr drive from the wharf but is the perfect place to take in the ocean which is very close. Over all it was a great stay and would tell anyone to rent from Taya.
A wonderful experience
I cannot imagine being more pleased with this vacation rental. There is not one thing we would have changed about our experience. Beautifully decorated with every amenity-VERY comfortable beds and bedding, luxurious towels, TV in every room, laptop computer with internet. Taya even included a bottle of wine and a LARGE basket of fresh fruit which we ate all week! We arrived almost three hours after our scheduled time, but one call to Taya and she was there when we got there. She even called the next day to make sure everything was alright with us. We would never consider staying anywhere else when we visit San Francisco again!
Oh my God
We loved this place.The kitchen was fully loaded w/ appliances.You name it was there.Cleanness was unbeatable.Location was the best, 1 minute walk to public transportaion, right across the SF zoo.Less than a minute driving to grocery store and shopping center.5 min driving to mall.I would highly recommend this place for your vacation.I can't name of anything that was not in this house.
We difinitly will come back for our next visit.
I give this place a big A+++++++++++++++++++++++++.
Incredible place by the Zoo and Beach, super nice and fun
In April we stayed at Taya's place in San Francisco and had the greatest time. Her husband gave us a tour of the place when we arrived and it was perfect. Complimentary wine and fruit. The location is amazing, literally across the street from the Zoo and the beach. We'll be coming back!
Perfect house for a family !!!
This was the first vacation rental we have stayed at. The experience was
The house is AMAZING, perfect location for a family.

We have a family of 6, 4 of which are children(ages 14-9) and
there was plenty for room for everyone.
We will DEFINATELY be
staying here again !!!
Great place to stay!!!
We stayed here for six nights with 2 adults and 4 children. We all had plenty of room. The condo is very clean and well kept. There were plenty of pillows, sheets and towels. Every room had a flat screen TV with cable so there was no fighting over what to watch. This condo is literally across the street from the Zoo and the beach. The owners were wonderful. The coffee maker wouldn't work and they brought over a brand new one almost immediately. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could ever need to prepare a meal. There is a grocery store nearby. There was also a very good, reasonably priced cafe and pizza place within walking distance. The condo has a garage for secure parking. You can get on public transportation (MUNI)to go into the city right behind the condo building and the MUNI operators were very helpful with giving directions to help us get to where we wanted to go. This was our first time using a Vacation Rental by Owner and I have to say these owners set the bar high! We would definitely stay here again!
We have stayed at many vacational rentals and I can honestly say that this was one of the best. The owner Taya was very helpful. The place had great attention to detail, everything was new,clean,and comfortable.We enjoyed the beach being so close. The location was perfect. We hope to stay there again in the future.
San Jose, CA
We Enjoyed the whole weekend together!!
My parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and they wanted to have the family together for a weekend in San Francisco. We were so lucky to get this place. The owner was an absolute pleasure to work with. She definitely went the extra mile to ensure that my family's needs would be met. My Uncle had some physical limitations and stairs can be issue for him so the owner went over & counted the number of stairs for me to assure that he felt he could manage them! The home was so clean!! The furniture was all new, very comfortable beds, even the couch pull out, which my husband I slept on, was very comfortable. We especially appreciated the high quality linens and towels and as an added bonus the owner had selected an absolutely gorgeous selection of organic fruit and a bottle of wine for us to enjoy (both complimentary) . The decor was warm and inviting and the location was perfect too. We enjoyed being right across the street from the zoo and beach. We cooked in and went to local restaraunts. We enjoyed an entire day at the Golden Gate Park and went to the Academy of Science bldg. The only thing that wasn't perfect .... was that the kitchen was small.... but my kitchen is small... so that's it! I would still give it a 10!
GREAT PLACE TO STAY WITH WONDERFUL OWNER
We Loved staying here...Everything brand new and the owner has thought of every comfort and convienience...We had a wonderful time and the location is GREAT...close to the beach and Zoo...but also easy to get to anywhere in the "city" from there...really nice to have Lucky Store only a few blocks away...but also lots of resturants nearby too.
