Very Good

“Perfect. Would recommend with no hesitation”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2014

This was far better than I had imagined and I have to admit I was apprehensive when we booked and I found the process to begin with rather slow in that I asked lot of questions and it took forever to get replies. But really everything on arrival was perfect after the initial booking of keys to be sent was at the last moment disrupted. We were met on the property which ticked every book for us. The view from the living room kitchen terrace was beyond fabulous. A very modern well equipped kitchen with the owners clearly being interested in food as a lot of the equipment was for the serious cook. Obviously you bring your won food but the great thing was if you did ruin out all the basics were there like salt herbs etc. The master bedroom was large rather quirky as the lift from the garage comes up there but it also had from the ensuite bathroom great views. The bathroom perhaps was the only let down as it was small and dated The sec on bedroom with a another ensuite was great small but perfectly ok. The living room was huge with a dining area and a further sitting area with a terrace. This flat had a great feel with fun stylish furniture and pieces and had for us good vibes. The location too was great. Down some steps and in a few minutes your are by the pier. We found everything we needed nearby with local Italian delectissan and a tore of organic food plus laundry. The flat has a private garage so it enabled us to park but untruth you really don't need a car . We loved it

“incredible views and beautifully decorated”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2014

my husband and i rented this place with another couple for three exceeded our expectations.......the views are incredible and the place it extremely spacious. a few minor negatives- getting the key to the unit is really inconvenient because you have to go to another area of town to pick it up and drop it off....the other minor negative is that the elevator opens directly into the master bedroom so if traveling with another couple, it can affect your privacy....however.....given how spectacular this place is, i would not let these two issues get in the way of renting does have a garage which we used......the balcony is immense and the sitting room has 180 degree view of the bay and two bridges.....really...all of us were blown away by how fantastic this place is.......we walked to lots of places nearby and loved the area as well.......

“Simply perfect”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2013

the house was an holiday in the holiday. incredible view, perfect location, fantastic terrace, perfectly furbished. we could not ask for more. the logistics (key, how to find it, etc) were perfect the house was extremely quiet I strongly recommend it for familes with very high living standards

“Lovely home with fantastic views of the bay”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

This apartment was very comfortable for our family of 4. The kids loved having their own room, with interested artifacts and books. We loved the views from the patio. We would definitely stay here again.

“An amazing view”

Reviewed 20 Jan 2011

We are a family of four and the apartment gave us the space we had been craving after travelling in the us for 3 weeks. The internet was also seamless which makes a big difference. A big supermarket and Trader Joe's are a walkable distance away - I did it twice but don't be tempted to buy too much - it's uphill a lot of the way home. It's also only a short walk down to the tram, Pier 39 etc. This is a home and feels like it. The owners are also very creative people. There are quirky things everywhere e.g. a gizmo that throws words up onto the wall above the fireplace - poetry written into the shadows cast by hats on the wall. It was a privilege to stay there. The only negative comment I would make is that the master bedroom and ensuite smelt quite musty - all othe rooms were fine. Accessing the key is a lot of work - you have to pick it up from the rental agency a significant distance away. You also then have to return it to them. Surely a coded box can be provided at the entrance of the apartment building itself as this added significant stress for us. The service provided by Casa Buena Vista agency was close to non-existent. I did not enjoy my dealings with them. The rental agency is also just a house - it is not well lit and it's not easy to find their street number at night. If I owned Ocean View Terrace, I'd look for new management.

“Great location great view”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2010

We came over from the Uk and stayed 4 nights in July. The appartment is great. Roomy and comfortable. The location is ideal being an easy 10 minute downhill walk to Fishermans Wharf. A bit longer coming back! Having a garage is very useful and the lift makes access very easy particularly with the luggage. I have read other reviews talking about the seven flights of stairs. The flat is only on the third floor so really it is 7 half flights and no issue even after the uphill walk. The views over the bay are stunning and the fact the view constantly changes makes it very interesting. The only downside for us is that the owners obviously spend a lot of time here and many of the cupboards are full of their items. In both bedrooms there was very limited storage so we lived out of our suitcase. Ok for 4 nights not so good for longer. Overal great place though and it has to be a much better option than a hotel

“Beautiful home with excellent location-issues with rental agency”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2010

The home is beautiful and is located in the trendy Telegraph Hill area. Rental agency "forgot" to give us the garage door opener when we checked in and we had to wait over an hour to park our car. Without the garage there is no Parking! Unit had many light bulbs burned out which was inconvient and made us feel like we were back at home spending time searching for and replacing light bulbs instead of enjoying every minute of our precious vacation time.

“Wow what an amazing view!”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2010

This condo is amazing. The view is intoxicating and the area can't be beat. Even my 79 year old slightly mobility impaired mother made the walk back from Fisherman's Wharf several times during our stay which says a lot about San Francisco and this unique place. Everything was provided and so beautiful and we had fun looking over it all and then looking out at it all. We felt like millionaires both due to the view and the place. We so want to return and enjoy it again. Others have mentioned the elevator was a bit inconvenient which it was not! We used it all the time and it made the difference for my mom. The only think I could see that would improve the stay would be for check in and check out to be more convenient. Especially for those of us who don't have cars and use paid transport to and from the unit. That said once at the Buena Vista location, both getting the keys and returning them were a piece of cake.

“Everything we hoped for and more”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2010

We absolutely loved Ocean View Terrace. The view was gorgeous. The apartment was very clean and equipped with everything needed. There were 4 adults in our party and we were very comfortable in this apartment. The only inconvenience was getting the key in a different area of the city and then having to return it there but this inconvenience was minor compared to the beauty of this place. We would definitely come back here.

“This condo was the best part of our trip”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2009

I read the previous rave reviews and decided to go for it. The spectacular view and terrace was more than worth it, but the comfort of the condo itself was way beyond anything we hoped for. It really felt like home away from home. I am so glad we stayed there--it really made our trip. One other side note that I didn't get from other reviews was about the location. The neighborhood itself is quiet, elegant, and filled with beautiful homes. The one and only thing I would change would be to have the key pickup/dropoff lockbox closer to the property itself, if not at the property, if possible. That was the only stressful part of the trip.
