This 100 year old brick "carriage house" was recently completely and meticulously restored to its original Victorian charm and beauty, while incorporating a wealth of modern amenities.

  • Agnes is possible the best Airbnb host I have ever experienced. She was on top of all of my questions and requests. The house is comfortable and very clean. Having two patios made taking advantage of the beautiful sunny days we got during our visit. We grilled, cooked up a storm in the kitchen, had some family over for dinner around the large dining room table, and enjoyed a bubble bath in the HUGE master bathroom.
    The house is CENTRAL! We went to different amazing restaurants and cafes every single day. Seriously, it was AWESOME!

  • We plan to return. We loved it! The location was perfect for us to easily get downtown, the house was amazing, and our host absolutely delightful.

    We had business downtown and made the commute across an entire work week using Uber. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants were within walking distance while we were at home.

    I think what we enjoyed most was how comfortable and stylish the entire house was. It also had an incredible mix of old and new, with cutting edge technology that was tastefully hidden yet easily discoverable.

    Agnes was such a thoughtful host. We enjoyed our bottle of wine that was waiting for us when we arrived. She was always responsive to questions (texting was great!) and concerned about ensuring our needs were meet.

    This was also a perfect place for a corporate team (we were). We intend to make this our base of operations on our other visits.

    Thank you, Agnes!

  • We had a great time at Agnes apartment. The location is fabulous with the Bart stop two blocks away. She also provided us with lots of useful information about what to see and do. Her sound and video systems are fantastic. We especially enjoyed being walking distance to Tartine for breakfast. Everyone wants to stay there again on our next visit to the city by the bay.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Agne's property at the beginning of August. She is communicative and extremely thoughtful, the best host one can hope for.

    Property: what you see in the pictures is what you get. The home is very clean and organized. As other guests had commented, Agnes left thoughtful notes throughout the house to explain how things work. I emailed a question about the sound system, Agnes provided very detailed instructions back promptly.

    I'd like to add that the house has a very charming inner garden with lemon trees and banana tree as well as a courtyard garden in the front. Another huge bonus is the kitchen, which is well stocked with everything. Even though we didn't do any major cooking during our stay, it was very pleasant to have breakfast, coffee or tea in the morning while looking out the french doors into the garden.

    Finally, as I was traveling with 2 kids, it was also super convenient that the house's washer and dryer were just next to the master bedroom! I wish I had that setup in my own house!

    Agnes: I really appreciate her thoughtfulness! Upon hearing that I have a 3-year old, she voluntarily provided a pack n' play without me asking. She also provided a foldout mattress without me asking which proved useful for my 9-year old to sleep on. From these gestures, I could feel she is a very kind and warm individual. Thumbs up!

  • Agnes place is really awesome. We stayed there with colleagues and we really enjoyed it. This is the perfect place to stay with friends and family and to discover and enjoy San Francisco. Agnes is a host that takes care of her guests and the house offers everything you need. We will definitely stay there again!

  • The house is simply amazing. Not only is it huge but also has a great location. The porch and the hot tub just add to this great stay. Agnes was also most helpful and easy to reach with questions. Great house, great location, great host. Couldn´t ask for more while staying with friends and family for a week in SF.

  • Agnes was a fantastic host. I recently had my family visiting me for about 10 days. Had them stay at her gorgeous and charming home in the Mission. Can't say enough good things about the home itself. But I will say that I lost track of the number of times my family changed their plans around and I had to email Agnes to see if it was OK. And every time she was very fast with her response, and very accommodating. Things couldn't have gone more smoothly. Big thanks to her.

  • The house is amazing, the pictures don't do it justice. It is huge and everything you would ever need/want is waiting for you. From a list of restaurants walking distance from the house, to a bottle of wine.

    The location is great for all ages, walking distance to many amazing restaurants, shops and bars. - We wish we had stayed longer to try them all.

    The communication from Agnes throughout the whole stay was perfect, from getting into the house at the start of our stay to any questions we had throughout.

    We couldn't have been happier and will only be staying in San Francisco again if this house is available, thanks Agnes!

  • We stayed her for five nights and could not have imagined it going better.

    First, the house is fantastic. We had 6 people (two couples and two singles) and there was plenty of room to spare. The pictures do not do it justice. Three things we loved most were the Tempurpedic bed in the master bedroom, the enormous master bath with a great jacuzzi tub, and the private backyard complete with hot tub.

    Also, if you are a music junkie (like we are) you'll dig the fantastic Definitive speakers (one pair in the living room and one pair in the office next to the kitchen) as well as a full-house sound system connected to a massive music library fed via a central server. There's also a couple of projection screens if you're into movies, but we didn't try them.

    Second, the neighborhood was awesome. We were so much better off staying in a residential neighborhood compared to where most hotels are in downtown, Nob Hill, near Fisherman's Wharf, etc.

    Finally, there were so many special little touches. For example, Agnes left chocolates on everyone's pillows. She left out bottles of wine for us. Bed linens and towels were all great quality. The house had little notes everywhere to take out the guesswork of figuring out how to operate things. Soap, toothpaste, shampoo -- all there. I had forgotten my toothbrush and after six hours of meetings and seven hours of travel I was bumming thinking I'd have to go back out and buy one right after arriving. Turned out there was a new toothbrush left out in the bathroom in case anyone forgot theirs.

    This will be the first place I check on all future trips to San Francisco.
