Victor's place is an architectural gem conveniently located in the Glenn Park district of San Francisco. The house itself is adorned in turn of the century period details including coffered ceilings, custom mouldings and in-laid wood floors. The kitchen has marble floors with glass doors leading to an intimate backyard. The furnishings are an eclectic mix of missionary and mid-century modern pieces reflecting the home owner's personal taste. The home is truly a time capsule and we enjoyed our stay. To top it off, the house is two blocks from the BART, and a ten minute (four stops) ride to Powell street in downtown San Fran. Would recommend this listing to anyone looking for a residential home convenient to downtown. Excellent restaurants as well.

Victor was the perfect host and helped make our stay special. The stereo system was simply amazing.

The house was nice but on the expensive side. Great kitchen, dining and living room. Only one bathroom may be a challenge for 6+ people, but with a separate toilet downstairs. Area nice with the organic Canyon Market as a highlight, and close to BART.

The success of a rental has two factors. The aesthetic of the property and the upkeep. Victors house is beautiful but the upkeep was left lacking in places. On the plus side - the house was very clean and the master bed is extremely comfortable. There were also ample towels. The hot water and heating also worked well. We also appreciated have some milk left in fridge for us to use when we arrived. The washer and drier were brilliant and dealt with all our washing without issue. Having a nespresso machine was a bonus. Victors communication with us was, on the whole very good. There were two issues which he informed us of promptly. On the down side. There were no external lights working in the back garden at all. We changed two light bulbs ourselves in the house but there were another two that we couldn't reach. The plug in the bathroom didn't work. Once the sink was filled with water there was no way to empty it. The lighting in the lounge is very dark. One lamp is on a timer so when that goes off the room is too dark to read. There are three TVs. Two in bedrooms and one in the study which has one chair. You can't sit together as a family and watch TV. The central heating/sitcom is efficient but only works downstairs. The bedrooms have seperate heaters. One is on a timer. The others you have to plug in as needed. The blinds in the main bedroom don't work. So there is no natural daylight in this room. There were two surveillance cameras - one in the kitchen and the other in the lounge. The host did not inform us of this beforehand. I unplugged them as I thought they were an invasion of our privacy. The back garden is described as "lovely garden deck for outside dining". The back garden is unkempt and scruffy and not useable as there is no lighting and insufficient and poorly maintained seating. There are no photos provided by the host of this area. The lounge accommodated the four of us but for a larger party there may be insufficient seating. The area is very nice and so convenient to get from SFO and to get downtown.

We didn't meet house owner Victor, but he was very communicative and reachable via SMS. House manager Isabel was very helpful when we arrived and left the house. The house is nicely located on a quiet street but close to a BART station. House garage is handy if renting a car like we did. No taxi needed to travel to/from the SFO airport!

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 living in both San Francisco and Chicago 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:)

I've now added my Chicago apartment which is an equally spectacular place but with a completely different vibe. A 3 bedroom apartment in a converted 100 year old Church with 35 foot ceilings, stained glass and modern appointments beautifully furnished in mid century modern decor.
