The Space

Single family home within walking distance to Golden Gate Park and all that it has to offer, including the Japanese Tea Garden, the DeYoung museum, and the Academy of Sciences museum. 1 to 4 blocks away from many restaurants, markets, and coffee shops on Geary Blvd, including Peet's Coffee, Joe's Ice Cream, Gaspare's Pizza, a great wine shop, and a great food market. Also about 2 blocks away from a great park, and about 6 minutes drive to the Golden Gate Bridge. You get the idea - centrally located. Perfect for a family of 4 or 5.

The house is a beautiful, 1915 Edwardian with Craftsman elements. Great for families with kids. Backyard with barbeque and a newer trampoline. Open, gourmet kitchen (fully stocked - my wife is a trained cook). Beautiful living room with working fireplace, and formal dining room.

We also have 3 cats - so, if you are open to taking care of our indoor/outdoor cats during your stay, all the better (but not necessarily required)!

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is close to easy city transportation-walking/biking distance to Golden Gate Park and the Presidio, the neighborhood has every kind of food imaginable within a few blocks!

  • My family and I had an amazing time at the Whalen home. It was myself, my husband and my four year old son and my mother eventually joined us for a few days. The house was roomy and had a great outdoor space and trampoline for my son. It had all the necessary amenities plus being able to get in and out of the city as needed. We also really enjoyed how relaxed we felt in the house despite being just a block away from a major thoroughfare. Would definitely recommend.

  • Great place to stay, especially when you around and about the city, marin, napa, sonoma and the east bay.

    parking is great, house is lovely and big enough for 4 easily.especially the kittens are always out for some extra care and tenderness. we enjoyed it very much - and had to use the fireplace twice as of the SF summer.

    will stay there again for sure!

  • erry's house was a great place to explore San Francisco. We keep all 4 Remember the first moments after a long trip we discovered this place. We knew we had made the right choice. The house, in addition to being large, very well decorated and has all the comfort you may expect. Its location is an asset, near Golden Gate Park and its museums (we walked ..) and 5 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge by car .. it's just wonderful. To discover the rest of SF, a bus 1 minute from the house brings you in about 20 minutes in all other sights of the city with no more than a 5 minute wait. Very simple and nice
    Do not hesitate therefore a second if you want to discover this wonderful city of SF. Moreover, Terry is very communicative and we had the chance to cross at the corner coffee to talk about our stay. It makes you feel good in it and nothing is complicated with him. A beautiful memory for all of us.

  • This location is amazing. The most beautiful market is just steps away; the produce is so fresh and arranged so beautifully it looks like a food museum. The neighborhood has every kind of ethnic restaurant you can think of ( and some you can't)! Golden Gate Park is so close by and full of walking trails , gardens, museums etc. Easy access to busses and other transportation. The home is clean, comfortable, cozy and welcoming. The hosts were very accommodating to our daughter's previewing the house and very magnanimous in sharing their home.

  • A wonderful, comfortable home in a fun neighborhood. The house is beautiful, with a nice private garden/backyard with a gas grill. There's also a piano if you're musically inclined.

    There are lots of great shops, restaurants & markets within walking distance on Geary (plus a Walgreens) or within a short drive or longer walk on Clement. We loved Joe's coffee shop at the corner, the restaurants around 25th Ave. & Clement, and the Green Apple Bookstore (new & used) at Clement & 4th Ave.

    Golden Gate Park is also very close, and you can catch the 28 bus downtown on Geary & Park Presidio. Beats fighting the traffic and hunting for difficult, expensive parking.

    Terry was a very welcoming, accommodating & accessible host.

  • We booked this property for a short trip with my family - turned out to be perfect. We have 2 kids - so the size was great - the house was very comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for eating in. The neighborhood was super kid friendly with a nice park nearby, as well as being close to Golden Gate park. There were lots of coffee shops, wine shop, and restaurants nearby. Terry was great - we didn't have any problems but felt that if we did he'd be right there. In short - an super lovely house with a great host. If you're coming to SF with a family, this is the way to go.
