Cami was super-friendly on our arrival and throughout the stay, giving us good local advice and ideas on places to visit, eat and drink. The area is great for visiting - close to the centre of town, without being too close, feels safe, but not boring! I don't need to add anything more about the amazing house - quite bizarre, and a fun place to call home for a week.
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!

About the Host, Cami And Carol
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 Anne Victorian houses in San Francisco and at the same time meeting the most fantastic people!
