This bedroom is well maintained in a wonderful old building, Cami and Carol were super accommodating, and the two cats that spend most of their time asleep are adorable. I'm happy to highly recommend this place; it's easy to get to/from downtown from the muni stop right outside, and it's basically adjacent to two excellent parks. Great spot.
Spencer House remains our all-time best Airbnb experience; we've now stayed with Cami three times and each time it has far surpassed our expectations. The rooms are beautiful, characterful and very clean and the location is perfect, just a few blocks from some of the best restaurants in the city and with great transport links as well. Cami is always so gracious and friendly, and perfectly organised, and she really makes her guests feel at home. We are already looking forward to our next visit!
Cami is a great host, I felt like at my home. And the whole house looks like a museum/gallery in a very positive sense :) And there are rainbows in the house from stained glass :)
What can I say that hasn't already been said. The Spencer House is one of San Francisco's gems. It's the perfect combination of amazing hosts and unique home. There is so much warmth and hospitality in this house, you'll leave feeling like part of the family. Highly recommend staying here!
Great house! We were welcomed heartily despite a late arrival. Cami let us know all the ins and outs and left us to enjoy our long weekend. Perfect! Very convenient to Haight-Ashbury, Golden Gate and easy transit to downtown.
Staying at the Spencer House was one of the most memorable traveling experiences I've ever had. From the minute they answered our reservation request to the moment we left the house, they gave us so much attention and made us feel very very welcome. Once we got in the place, we wore received with a house tour, completed by the place history and a couple of tips about the neighborhood. Our room was just amazing (like the entire house): the place looks like a fairy-tale home, a 18th century house amazingly preserved. You'll get the feeling of staying in a historical place with the comfort of our days. Cami, Carol and their brother make everything with so much love and attention that it's impossible to don't have a perfect time. They made their best to make us feel home - and we did so. Staying with them is not like staying anywhere else; it's like staying at a friends place. Wonderful place, wonderful hosts, wonderful experience. Can't wait for the next time! Thank you again for receiving us!
What kind of hosts, what kind of a house! - It is even more than amazing staying at Spencer House. This gorgeous Viktorian House is breathtaking. And when you add the people that you are able to meet, this place is definitely priceless. Be it Cami & Carol and their team that made my stay easy, unforgettable and perfect from the very beginning or be it one of the various guests that I was able to speak with. This is definitely a place that you don’t want to leave!
From the very first minute, you feel like at home, because of the amazing hospitality of your hosts who put their hearts and souls in running this house. I really enjoyed my stay and I am definitely coming back, because I made some great new friends! In a nutshell: The place - wonderful! The people themselves - wonderful! Try to book it, it is awesome!

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!
