Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • From the moment my partner and I stepped into The Spencer House, we knew it was going to be a memorable experience. The house itself is astounding and dripping with history. We caught public transport around San Fran (when we weren't basing ourselves in the Haight) which was, for the most part, at our front door and only about a 20 minute ride away. We were in The Farallon Room which faced the courtyard and it was extremely comfortable and pretty quiet.

    Camila added to our experience by being warm, accommodating and extremely helpful when it came to directions and suggestions on where to visit.

    And lastly, the cats! Adorable and friendly. Be sure to say hi to them before you leave in the morning.

  • We couldn't have had a nicer time at Spencer House. Our hosts were exceptionally lovely, hospitable and helpful and the house is lovingly refurbished and maintained. It was fun to get to know the area. We very much look forward to returning to this wonderful home.

  • San Francisco is such a great city - it would be hard to improve on it - but staying at the spencer house is the best way to make it even better!

  • What a great place! If you have the opportunity to stay here, I would not let it pass you by. The place is truly beautiful with amazing decor. The city is known for its classic Victorians. What better way to experience the city than staying in one of the most gorgeous ones? The location is very desirable being close to great coffee houses, bars, and restaurants all within a short walk. Literally right across the street from a wonderful park with picturesque views at the top of the hill.

    To top it all off, Camila is a wonderful hostess. Her knowledge of all the great local spots is invaluable to any guest. Add to that her friendly, welcoming nature and it's hard not to feel like you're with family! San Fran is a great city for food and Cami has great taste as well as a passion for good food. Lucky to have some help with so many good choices around.

    So, if you're heading to San Fran, I'm not sure you would do better than checking out what Spencer Mansion has to offer.

  • Camila is a great host. She was very accommodating with our arrival time (driving up from LA) and was very responsive with any questions and request which came up during our stay. The house is a Victorian Marvel in mint condition located on an excellent block. Parking was also easy to find. The room faced the green courtyard so there was no street noise and my wife and I slept soundly. There were fresh cut Lilly's placed everywhere and the common areas as well as Erwin's room were always very clean. Camila made sure to provide ample suggestions for our daily activities always steering us to a location she sensed we enjoined. My wife and i wold gladly stay with Camila again.

    Response from Camila:

    thank you guys! see you in NYC!!

  • Camila was extremely friendly, helpful, accessible, and really helped set the right tone for this awesome vacation. She accommodated my mom’s request to surprise my boyfriend and I with a chilled bottle of champagne, had great restaurant suggestions, and made it clear that we could contact her at any time if we had any questions about anything. The Erwin room itself had an extremely comfortable king-sized bed, lots of charm , and a huge bathroom with great water pressure in the shower. We loved the location as well; we were near a cool park, great restaurants and shopping, and the parking wasn’t as horrible as it is in many other areas in SF. The mansion, room, location, and especially Camila were all great!

    Response from Camila:

    Thanks Lesley! Come back someday!

  • Has a great location within the Haight-Ashbury area of San Francisco and just a couple of blocks from some awesome restaurants, pubs and the Golden Gate Park. My initial concern about the proximity of the house’s location to downtown was quickly proven false as it was quite easy to access transit and travel to all areas of the city. Host Camila runs a first-rate establishment and is very quick to suggest places to see and experience. The rooms, common living areas and surrounding landscape is decorated in authentic Victorian style – very lovely. The house is clearly well loved and cared for by Camila and her staff. Erwin’s Room has a queen bed and ensuite bathroom with walk in shower. At the end of a long day of sightseeing I enjoyed sinking into the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in Wireless internet access is available and use of common living areas encouraged, including the kitchen. There are lots of little surprise extras – all very well thought out. I recommend you consider staying at Camila’s house when visiting San Francisco – an awesome experience!

  • I'm now hopelessly spoiled. Absolutely the best place to stay in the city, and absolutely the best host.

  • I made this reservation for my friend Danny and he was blown away by the whole experience. Excellent well maintained room and a very comfortable bed. He immensely enjoyed the hospitality of our host Camilla. One of the best vacations he has ever had in a while! He will definitely be back!

As a model, I've been traveling around the world for the past 10 years and as of lately have been spending more time between NYC and SF. I love good food, good wine and good sake, maybe the reason I stick around these two cities. As a host I really try to make sure my guests have a memorable and fun time. And because good food and wine are my obsession, sharing is imperative!
