Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Victor was a fantastic, welcoming and flexible host, offering great local restaurant recommendations, and the house was ideal for a group traveling together. The bart station nearby is great for getting around the city and the house itself is beautiful - a great experience all round, would highly recommend!

  • Absolutely loved our stay at Victor's house. First of all, Glen Park is a hidden gem of a neighborhood with one of the best natural food markets I've ever been to in my life, some great restaurants and cafes, and easy access to public transportation or to the freeways for getting around. Secondly, the house itself is a total gem that is quintessential San Francisco. From the gorgeously renovated kitchen and the antique furniture to the comfortable beds and the clawfoot tub, everything was so full of character and added so much to our experience. The sweet elderly cat was a lovebug. Victor was great to communicate with and explained everything perfectly. I can't wait to come back.

  • VIctor was a great host. We got into a bit of pickle and had our housing fall through at last minute and he was able to accommodate our slightly frantic request with ease. The house is ridiculous in the good way. Amazing architecture, yard, kitchen... it's just wonderful.

  • Victor's place was amazing! So much light, so much beauty. We enjoyed having a long brunch around the long dinner-table, cooked in the fully-equipped kitchen and followed by mimosas in the garden. Listening to the amazing sound system was an added bonus, as was the very sweet kitten.

  • Great city. We've stayed in this amazing victorian house. Victor was the best. Always available. Thanks to him we spent a week in a San Francisco typic way.

  • This is an awesome house in a great location, with a gorgeous cat and very flexible and willing host (Victor). I recommend it to anyone!

  • Victor's house is absolutely beautiful! It's a Victorian-era row house on a hill in a lovely neighborhood in SF. I stayed here with a group of five people, and it was perfect for us. There were some issues with the health of the elderly cat during our stay, which we alerted Victor to and he dealt with. We would certainly stay here again.
    Be aware there is only one full bathroom with shower in the house. It wasn't a problem for us, but it might be an issue for a large group if time is an issue. Victor wasn't there in person, but he was very responsive via text and email to all our needs. Beautiful home -- highly recommended, with above caveat about shower.

  • Great house! The kitchen is well equipped:) Victor was very helpful and replied to questions right away. Thanks Victor!

  • Victor and his team (the lovely and helpful Isabel who cleans and sorts) were incredibly helpful and responsive. Victor's house is exquisite and for those of us loving early C20th design it is a work of love and profoundly good taste. Next time we will leave the kids at home until they grow out of that exploratory 'touch everything' stage and the garden matches the interior. For cooks, you will want to pack every item of Victor's kitchen in your luggage. This man has seriously good taste!

    August 2013
  • Though we didn't get to meet Victor in person, he was very responsive and helpful. During the days we visited, SF was a bit foggy and cold, so that we spent more time in the house. I like the neighborhood. Everyone of my family was happy about the stay. Besides, Canyon market offers fresh food and fruit, and we prepared a great dinner, thanks to the well equipped kitchen.

I am a person who enjoys travel, cooking and fine food, music, architecture and design. My work is dedicated to getting big ideas (companies, programs, platforms) into the world, especially those that address global challenges (water, health, energy, waste, etc.). A transplanted New Yorker, I enjoy life in San Francisco though spend a lot of time on the road. A classically trained pianist in early life, former producer and entrepreneur and now social impact investment "change agent", I'm looking forward to meeting new people who have interesting lives, loves and travels. Favorite cities: New York and San Francisco, Barcelona, Valencia, Florence, Stockholm, Tokyo Favorite hang out places: Montauk, Big Island Hawaii, Yankee Stadium Favorite Movies: Godfather, Bladerunner, Wizard of Oz. Favorite TV shows: Mad Men, Californication, Game of Thrones, Daily Show I take pride in my house which I bought after seeing 90 houses of which NONE had any character or history. This house, the one listed here, was the exception and is truly exceptional. The house was built in 1880 and was in another section of San Francisco. At the turn of the 20th century, before the great fire in 1906, the house was moved to Glen Park area, to serve (I believe) as a model home in a new area of San Francisco being develeoped by this speculator nameed Joost (the house is on Joost Ave). Joost came to San Francisco after returning from Panama where he worked (unsuccessfully) to build a canal. While years later his vision would be realized by others, I admire his boldness. I'd like to share the house with those who will enjoy it and respect its history. It survived the earthquake and the great fire, so hoping it will survive rentals:)
