The hosts' experience and sophistication and welcoming openness make this location memorable for a San Francisco visit -- we know the town, the people, the culture, the special little restaurants, the parks, the walks...and we are eager to share the highlights of this place we love.

Had a great trip! Beautiful house in an amazing are of the city. Hosts are kind and generous, would love to stay again.
I had a fantastic time! I never met the host, but the caretaker was a joy and had great advice on where to go out and other fun things to do in the city. The place was clean and I felt safe. I parked in the driveway off the street but didn't pull up far enough ($110 parking ticket for blocking part of the sidewalk). It was completely my fault but I recommend you pull up as far as possible!
All around it was a great place to stay. Fantastic coffee maker and the eastern windows are bright in the morning!
The caretaker of the house is nice and helpful. It is a great location, very close to the golden gate bridge and restaurants. Parking is easy and free. It is a nice place to stay in San Francisco.
Lovely people, lovely place to stay. It was clean, bright, had free parking and is located in a great neighborhood (the Marina). Highly recommended.
This was a great experience. The location is perfect, and there is free parking on the street right in front of the house. The bed was comfortable, and the house is warm and cozy. Heather met me, and was very friendly and welcoming. There are many restaurants and bars within about a half mile of the house, on Chestnut street. It's also quite close to the Presidio, but I didn't head that direction on this trip. I would stay again. One tip is to bring slippers if you can, as its a house rule to take your shoes off at the door.
Host made us feel very welcome, and the accommodations were very comfortable. Both Sandor and Giuliana were knowledgeable hosts whom helped make our trip a success. They have great history in the city, as well as a love for their city that made our stay a delight.
I stayed with Sandor and Giuliana for 2 weeks. I had the pleasure of arriving on Giuliana's birthday and they treated me like any of their friends and family. The location is only blocks away from the presidio, Lyons Steps, Palace of Fine Arts, the Marina Green, and the many restaurants and bars on Chestnut. I had a car and parking was not an issue. They let me use their driveway. The place is as advertised.
My wife and I have lived in San Francisco for 40 years; prior to this, we lived in the Los Angeles area for nearly 10 years. I am originally from Hungary. I left when I was 16 in 1956. My wife, Giuliana, was born in Italy and grew up in Venezuela. For four decades, I managed our family’s pasta factory, Eduardo’s Pasta, in San Francisco. Giuliana, meanwhile was the CEO of a management company that specialized in non-profit organizations . Between the two us we speak four languages: Magyar, English, Italian and Spanish. We have traveled extensively in Europe and South America and welcome international and national guests. We love living in San Francisco and taking full advantage of the geographic, social and cultural activities it has to offer. Our home is I a perfect location to easily explore the city and its intriguing, diverse neighborhoods. As the long-time columnist in the San Francisco Chronicle, Herb Caen, once said, “One day, if I do go to heaven, I will look around and say, ‘It ain’t bad, but it ain’t San Francisco.’”
