I had a fantastic stay at Camilla's place. She was very welcoming and warm when I arrived. The room and house were beautiful. I was staying in San Francisco for business and I would definitely chose to stay here again instead of a hotel. The area is really nice with lots of great restaurants and bars. A big thumbs up for Spencer house and Camilla!
Upon arrival I was greeted warmly by Carol. She gave me a tour of the beautiful Spencer House. Her husband has some artwork up and we talked about her own illustrations. Wonderful to meet other creatives in the world so talented. The house is completely like the photos, gorgeous, elegant rooms, well lit, and super clean. I took so many photos! Lil' Queen Anne Room was perfect. Comfortable bed, really nice sheets, high ceilings, beautiful light and nice windows which provided a nice breeze of fresh air. The bathroom was perfect - so clean. I really liked the shampoo and conditioner too, did wonders to my hair. Even though it's been restored to old Victorian splendor with every detail, it felt warm, cozy and modern. I really think a huge part is because Camila and Carol were such delightful hostesses! Camila shared wine and food with me one night and we had an animated conversation of our bi-coastal living between California and NY. It was so fun to talk food and drink especially sushi!!! You also can't beat the location, the 71 is right out in front and it's walking distance to Golden Gate Park, Buena Vista and Alamo Square. Easy to get to any part of the city from this house. I will definitely be returning to this house every time I visit my friends in SF!!! Obrigado Camila and Carol for a lovely stay! I hope to keep in touch and see you around the world!
We really enjoyed our stay in this charming Lil'Queen Anne Room. The space is as shown in the photos and something even more. The moment you step in you feel you're either in a dream or in a film setting. I didn't have the time to enjoy the other lovely common used spaces of the Spencer house but the whole vibe and the hosts' hospitality and responsiveness can definitely make you fall in love with it.
Camilla was a terrific host and the mansion, which is the only way to describe the house, was absolutely fantastic! Camilla met us promptly and oriented us to the facilities. This old Victorian was beautiful. Camilla upgraded us to a larger room set further back from the street, but the original room would have been more than fine. Our room was beautifully furnished, the en-suite bath was terrific with plenty of towels and a giant mountain of comforters on the bed. We had access to the entire house which was quite comfortable and decorated with great taste and charm. There was only one other couple staying at the same time we were, so it was very quiet and peaceful. There were several buses right outside the door and restaurants and grocery stores within a couple blocks. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends...in fact we took our San Francisco friends on tours of the house when they picked us up to go out on the town. Two thumbs up!
Camila is a wonderful host and her place and this place is just awesome. I can really recommend staying here.
This was our second time staying at the Spencer House and it has become our favourite place to stay in San Francisco. Camila is a charming and attentive host and the house itself is magical. We will most certainly be back!
If you are looking for a tremendous experience and a place to call home while in San Fran, this is it! I stayed at the Spencer house for 5 nights and had a wonderful experience. The house is extremely clean and well run and it was nice to be able to retreat back to my room for peace and quiet. Camila and Carol were very hospitable with tons of recommendations that were ALL amazing. Camila really knows her stuff when it comes to travel, food and drink. I will definitely be staying there again when I go back to San Fran. Thanks again Camila and Carol!
I have traveled for most of the past 2 years, and I can honestly say this may be the best place I stayed that entire time - it would certainly be top 5. Cami is great, the house is gorgeous, and I loved my room - my home away from home. I can't wait to come back and stay the next time I'm in town!
I stayed at camilas wonderful house for a weekend and it was exactly what I have expected. I needed a place in a nice area in San Francisco with a good opportunity to get around. The bus stop in front of her house and the lines 71 and 6 are perfect. This charming house is cozy and the kitchen is very well equipped. The refrigerator is actually a cooling chamber ;-) Unfortunately I had not enough time to hang more around in this fantastic house.
The room was small, but very clean and charming. Concerning Camila: she is such a warmhearted, helpful and charming person. You will feel like visiting a friend of a close friend ;-) You can trust on her recommendations as well: Magnolia Pub for dinner or the Grint for breakfast. One of her passions is (wholesomely cooked) food and next time let us cook together camila ;-) By the way, there is a very nice supermarket in walking distance with fruits, cheese, wine and a lot more (on a high german food level).
So do not hesitate to stay in this fantastic house. Thanks Camila. See you again in San Francisco;-)
Camille was a wonderful host. Energetic, friendly and extremely welcoming. Her house is one of most fantastic places I've ever stayed. Beautiful every detail. Exactly as pictured perhaps even better. I would recommend this room to all.
