Gorgeous Victorian Cole Valley Home

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Stanyan Street, San Francisco, CA 94117, United States

The Space

This gorgeous 2-bedroom apartment within a Victorian house in Cole Valley has its own entrance, kitchen decorated with handmade Moroccan tiles, staggeringly luxurious and huge marble bathroom with jacuzzi and steam showers, and master bedroom suite with electric fireplace and its own separate sitting room. It takes up two floors of a recently renovated, classic 1887 San Francisco Victorian house. It is decorated with beautiful textiles and artwork, and would be a relaxing retreat whether you're in town for work or vacation.

It has one extremely luxurious queen-sized canopy bed in its own master suite with private sitting room and huge walk-in closet with new laundry facilities. The second bedroom is perfect for kids, with a bunk bed for two, and colorful furnishings. The master suite and kids room share an incredible, enormous bathroom clad in marble, and has all the amenities you could want.

The main living area of the house has an open floor plan, with colorful Moroccan tiled kitchen perfect for the serious chef, and a living room with cable TV with HBO and other networks, as well as very fast, free wifi. The living room boasts terrific views of the city and rolling hills of Cole Valley, and with a comfortable queen sized air mattress can sleep two more.

It is situated in lovely Cole Valley, in walking distance of UCSF and its shuttles to Mission Bay and elsewhere. It is a short walk to Golden Gate Park (great for running, walking, or just exploring beautiful gardens and nature), the Haight-Ashbury, and steps from public transportation (1 block to the bus stop, 2 blocks to the N-Judah train stop; we do not have a garage, however we can provide a parking permit so that you can park quite easily on the street).

It is very close to the charming restaurants, shops and services of Cole Valley and the Haight (including a short jaunt to Whole Foods and other natural food stores).

This gorgeous, luxurious home is perfect if you're in town for work (especially at UCSF), or just in town to relax and visit!

I will mention that to get to this lovely apartment does involve stairs to climb, since the property is set above the street. But the quiet, view and light are well worth the climb.

  • It was such a nice stay at Stacey's apartment, only to be recommended!
    Everything was as described and Stacey was very helpful and absolutely
    easy to communicate with. Beautiful neighborhood also,
    family friendly and relaxed with lots of cafes and nice things
    to discover. Perfect first Airbnb experience!

  • Stacey's place is truly a perfect AirBnB stay. The apartment is exactly what you see in the pictures, super clean & very adorable. Stacey's communication is amazing, always a quick response when you need anything. Located in a beautiful, quiet and rather central neighborhood - it was easy to get everywhere we needed to go. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat! :)

  • Four of us stayed here for a couple of nights recently, and had a great time! The apartment itself is lovely, and within extremely close walking distance of many of San Francisco's attractions. We tried to make the most of our short stay in the city, so spent minimal time in the apartment, but the time that we did spend was great.

    It was wonderfully clean and tidy, the beds are extremely comfortable and the bathroom is lovely and had plenty of hot water for four of us. The shower really helped wake me up!

    If you're staying for longer, the kitchen is fully kitted-out and you'd have no problem making yourself at home.

    In the interests of balance, there are only two downsides, neither of which are a big deal at all. There's no TV, but you're in San Francisco - why would you want one? And parking for us was a little tricky at times, but again, it's San Francisco. Parking everywhere is tricky.

    Overall, a wonderful stay in a wonderful apartment.

  • My aunt & I stayed At Stacey's place for five days & we couldn't have wished for a better place. The flat is in a lovely San Francisco Victorian & the local neighbourhood has a pleasant vibe plus has all the shops & restaurants you could need. There are good public transport links with downtown & the rest of San Francisco & Stacey was always on hand to answer any questions we had. Loved staying here, I highly recommend.

  • This apartment is everything described and more. It's spacious, clean, funky and well equipped. The locations is ideal for relaxing in lovely Cole Valley and accessing the cities most interesting neighbourhoods; a particular highlight from our trip was walking up the very nearby Sutro Tower, one of the highest points in the city. Stacey was really friendly and accommodated all our needs. Highly recommended.

  • Everything about the apartment was exactly as described. Cole Valley is the perfect base for being able to experience everything that San Francisco has to offer. The apartment is not ideal for people who wish to spend a lot of time indoors as there is, apart from the bar stools, only a chair for lounging that is large enough for two people. But that was okay with us since we spent every possible minute exploring the beautiful city. Stacey was very easy to communicate with and was quick to respond to messages. Her recommendation for nearby Padrecito for Mexican food and cocktails was perfect after our long flight to the city. She also provided a place for us to store our luggage after we checked out so that we could continue exploring the city before our flight departed later in the day. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a very clean place in a perfect, central location. Thanks, Stacey.

  • What a lovely apartment! We loved our stay and Stacey was wonderful and accommodating to our weird arrival and departure times. The apartment was clean, with AMAZING views of San Francisco. Stacey was incredibly responsive and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement tout à fait charmant,et bénéficiant d'une magnifique vue dominante; dans un quartier calme et (website hidden) situation idéale permettait de nous rendre rapidement en métro dans le centre.

  • I have the rare pleasure of being able to say I have stayed in both apartments offered by the host in her lovely house in San Francisco. The first time we stayed in the lower floor (see separate review) and the second time my group stayed in the upstairs apartment. The upstairs apartment was a nice treat with their amazing view which we noticed immediately. The furnishings were very comfortable (we were in need of a good night's sleep after our travels) and we loved the cozy atmosphere. It was clean and welcoming. We had five people, and we all slept comfortably in the upstairs apartment. Only wish we had longer to stay because we loved the city! Location of the house is amazing. Just a short walk from some amazing areas in San Francisco. This is definitely an amazing host with lots to offer!

Hello! I'm a friendly, open, intellectually curious and creative artist / mother / wife, world traveler and explorer. I love: a comfy couch + a new book, preferably with a hot cup of tea; a clean kitchen + bathroom; honest, friendly, like-minded people; and cooking + eating delicious food. I love Paris, Istanbul, London, NYC + LA and just about anywhere in Italy. As Airbnb hosts, we are here if you need us, invisible if you don't; we certainly won't disturb you if you prefer privacy. The apartment has its own entrance, so unless you'd like recommendations for restaurants or help with anything else, you will feel like you're in your home-away-from-home, free of intrusion. We take our Airbnb hosting responsibilities seriously, and aim to make your visit to San Francisco as lovely, comfortable, and enjoyable as possible! :-)
