Fantastic location, beautiful house, comfortable room! My 21 year old daughter and I stayed here for Spring Break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cami and Carol responded very quickly via text to any questions. It is a great neighborhood --we loved breakfast at Grind, did yoga at Yoga garden just 2 blocks away and my daughter took advantage of the vintage shopping on Haight. We were always able to find a parking place even late at night. We felt like we were staying in Downton Abbey--the main rooms are so elegant! It was very quiet our week so we didn't see any other guests so we had some friends come over and join us in the formal dining room for drinks. The room was very clean and comfortable. You will really get the impression that they do all they can to make it a very nice place for guests. We would stay here again and have recommended it to our friends.
Awesome stay. This is the second time I visited Cami and Carol in less than a year. Now my default choice of accommodation whenever I am in SF.
Thanks for having me and looking forward to visiting again soon :)
Great host. Great neighborhood. Great house. Hands down the best listing I have stayed at. It's one of those experiences you will never forget. Got tons of recommendations from the hosts and felt like we were at home immediately on arrival.
The Spencer House deserves each one of its 5 stars and more. It's one of San Francisco's gems and is the perfect combination of amazing hosts and unique home. There is so much warmth, generosity and hospitality in this house, you'll leave feeling like part of the family. Highly recommend staying here!
From the moment I stepped into the stunning Spencer House, I knew I had made the right choice. Cami warmly welcomed me and shared the history of her home. The Queen Anne room was lovely, with views of the park and the bay to the north. And surprisingly quiet. A kitchen stocked with fruit, gourmet coffees, teas, and cookies was an unexpected treat. But the highlight of my stay was the kindness and generosity of Cami and Carol. They are lovely hosts and helped me feel like I was a most welcome guest!
Wow we had such an amazing time time here, our hosts were above and beyond fantastic! Cami was so lovely to us, she made us feel so welcome and provided us with helpful restaurant recommendations and many tips to enjoy the city. We had a lovely evening sharing wine and stories with her and other guests, thank you Cami!
Spencer House is such a great place to hang out and be happy in comfort and style! The house has been finished in the original style and the attention to detail is amazing, we stayed in the Queen Anne room and the bed is the comfiest I have ever slept in, soft linens and fluffy pillows! This has by far been the best airbnb experience we have had and we wish Cami, Carol and their family all the best for the future.
With warm regards

Cami and Carol waren wundervolle Gastgeber und haben sich sehr nett um uns gekümmert. Wir erhielten viele Tipps über die nächsten Coffeeshops und Lokale in der Gegend und auch sonst standen die beiden stets mit Auskunft bereit. Es war immer Tee und Kaffee sowie Wasser zur freien Verfügung und auch Unternehmungen wurden uns empfohlen. Die beiden sind sehr nette Gastgeber und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden auch wieder kommen!! Sehr zu empfehlen und total nette Gegend direkt am Buena Vista Park in der Haight Street mit zahlreichen Geschäften und netten Lokalen.

Cami: 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!
Carol: Graphic designer and artist, living in SF since 2010, but still discovering things all over the city and eager to share my findings! I love showing our guests the best in our neighborhood and the city (and good surf spots for beginners!).
Ever since we started hosting at the Spencer House it has been our pleasure to share one of the most beautiful Queen Victorian houses in San Francisco and at the same time meeting the most fantastic people!
