Authentic 1890's Victorian, beautifully renovated flat with 3 real bedrooms, 2 baths, large kitchen, living & dining rooms, laundry room, back patio. Quiet street in great central and fun to walk neighborhood. Free parking for one car.

The Space

What better way to experience San Francisco than staying in an authentic and renovated 1890 Victorian (one of those tourists come here to gaze at), in a central location yet on a safe, quiet and charming street, with attractions, food, shopping and public transportation within walking distance? Furthermore, the luxury of 3 bedrooms and two baths at this price point is very rare in a top rated location in town. While our street is quiet, it's one block from Haight. Lots of fun shopping, cafes and restaurants within short walking distance. The house is located between two popular city parks, Buena Vista Park and Duboce Park. High ceilings, wood floors, period moldings. Bathrooms and kitchen recently remodeled providing the best of the old and new. The real San Francisco experience!
Large main bedroom with queen-sized canopy bed, deco fireplace and views. Second bedroom has full size bed plus a twin bed. Optional packnplay bed (folded and available) and high chair for baby or toddler. Third bedroom has private bath en suite, with full sized bed and lovely vintage furniture. Pet free, smoke free household. Living and dining rooms, kitchen and laundry room. South facing garden and patio for outside retreats. WI-FI, cable TV.
One dedicated parking for one vehicle free with rental (except Tuesdays from noon-2pm). Because this spot is in the street, perpendicular to the curb in front of our garage, it can accommodate any size car or van. Home is on a gentle hill, providing elevated views in front. Tree-lined street, yet close to everything! Walk score 92. One block to muni buses, N-Judah line, short walk to Haight Ashbury, Alamo Square, the Castro, Divisadero, Duboce Triangle and Lower Haight restaurants and cafes. Short bus or easy 20min walk to Golden Gate Park, the Mission. Quick MUNI (metro train) to Downtown, Embarcadero, Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown… and the experience of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in San Francisco.
Lower unit does NOT mean street level... twenty-two steps from street to the entrance of our single level flat, allowing for great privacy, and views.
*Please note: the house is ideal for 2 couples and up to three children, or a maximum of 3 couples (6 adults and no children).

Guest Access

Nothing is off limits, guests have the whole space to use as they wish. While family gatherings are fine, no parties allowed.

Interaction with Guests

To make my whole house available to guests, I often stay with my daughter's family in the neighborhood, or leave town periodically. So unfortunately I don't always meet my guests, but I communicate extensively via text or email and am always available by phone.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is simply beautiful, with restored late 1800/early 1900's Victorians all around. Buena Vista Park is just up the hill surrounded by amazing archictectural gems and breathtaking views of the city and the bay. Duboce Park a block away is also surrounded by such quaint beautiful houses that are on the tour bus route (those buses avoid our block because of our short hill, keeping our section of our street a quiet secret!) Yet with Haight St and Divisadero just a block away, public transportation, grocery stores, cafes and restaurants abound within a short walk.

Getting around

One block to muni buses, N-Judah MUNI (metro) line, short walk to Haight Ashbury, Alamo Square, the Castro, Divisadero, Duboce Triangle and Lower Haight restaurants and cafes. Short bus or easy 20min walk to Golden Gate Park, the Mission. Quick MUNI (metro train) to Downtown, Embarcadero, Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown…

Other Things to Note

4-day minimum stay in the system, but I make exceptions when less than 4 days available between bookings, so please contact me by putting in different dates. My guests invariably have just loved staying at my house, and they have expressed it in my many reviews.

  • Beautiful Victorian home! Very clean and has everything you could possibly need. 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, full kitchen, laundry room, living room with cable tv, assigned parking, patio. Great location close to Alamo Square. Many cafes nearby for breakfast. I highly recommend!

  • The house is beautiful, and in a great location. I swear we all wanted to live there after our experience. I stayed there with three girlfriends, and we had a blast. The hosts guide for the neighborhood helped alot, and many places we wanted to go were easy to walk to.

  • My family had a terrific experience at Emilie's house! It is exactly as photographed, excellent location in a lovely neighborhood centrally located in SF, and Emilie was very easy to communicate with. Having a reserved parking spot is a huge plus. Very pleased with our stay and highly recommend.

  • We had such a wonderful time in SF, especially because of this marvellous place we've been. It's an amaizing apartment, really spacious, clean and beautiful to look at it. It's located in a lovely neighbourhood near Castro and Haight ashbury. We were 5 and were so comfortable for us. Everything was just perfect. We've never met Emilie but she always answered my questions, she was very kind with us. Thanks a lot Emilie for letting us have such a great time in San Francisco!

  • Très bonne expérience avec l'appartement d'Emilie:
    - bon contact par email, instructions claires et précises et bonnes suggestions sur la vie du quartier
    - localisation idéale dans un quartier calme et charmant, à deux pas de Haight et à 15mn de Mission. Muni à 10 minutes à pied
    - grandes chambres, salle à manger petite mais fonctionnelle et agréable avec vue sur l'extérieur
    - salon petit mais confortablement meublé
    - lits très confortables

    Je recommande cet appartement pour les familles cherchant une localisation fonctionnelle et calme à San Francisco.

  • Emilie's home perfectly accommodated our large crew. The home was clean and welcoming. Emilie was very friendly, well organized, and responsive. The location is perfect - not in the middle of downtown, but in a great part of the city and only a short walk to the Muni.

  • 2nd time we stay here and it was perfect again ! Nice and quiet location, super easy parking in front, well equipped and comfy house. Will stay here again.

  • Stop searching! Stay here! Emilie has a warm, inviting, remarkably cozy home perfectly situated to take full advantage of all that SF has to offer. Lovingly restored and updated, the home is extremely well maintained. Her home was super clean. Emilie's home provides you everything you need to stay home for a family dinner yet it's close enough to walk to some fantastic establishments if you want to go out. Great hikes to Buena Vista Park and Corona Height are easily within reach. This was the most perfect place to re-connect with my family on vacation. Easy walk to public transport. On a quiet street and we always felt safe. Great communication and easy check in. Highly recommended.
