I am a born and raised San Franciscan. My family and I enjoy long walks on the beach, a backyard barbecue, and an occasional beach bonfire.

We enjoyed our stay in this beach haven within the city. The place is well-situated for easy drives north or south, but the beach and running path across the street make for great reasons to stay and enjoy the scenery at home. There is ample street parking in this eclectic and laid-back neighborhood that holds great appeal to everyone from surfers to families to sojourners. We appreciated the beautiful indoor space and the outdoor patio, grill, deck and fireplace. We recommend Ilona’s place. Thanks for a great stay.
Ilona and her husband were lovely hosts, and their home is simply incredible. We so enjoyed the fire place/pit, the gorgeous outside space in the back, and being so close to the beach. It's not incredibly close to downtown San Fran, but we found the public transportation (the L-Taraval) convenient and easy to navigate. Super comfy beds. Tons of space. All kitchen needs covered. Clean and bright bathrooms with great showers.
Would definitely recommend Ilona and her beautiful home.
Ilona has a beautiful, well appointed house. It seems very spacious and is really nice to be so close to the beach.
Ilona's home was well maintained and in a quiet part of the city. Parking was plentiful and there was a private garage, which was convenient. I appreciated the comfortable beds/bedding and the cleanliness of the home. I would definitely suggest a car as there aren't many restaurants or grocery stores in walking distance- we were there for a week and never had trouble finding parking, even in the heart of the city on a weekend. The house does get a bit chilly during the night/morning so having the heater was nice.
Be sure that you know the cancellation policy- for this home there is absolutely no refund upon cancellation, regardless of notice given. We were unable to stay for the whole month that we had originally booked.
We would recommend Ilona's home to travelers who want to enjoy SF without being caught in the bustle of the busier parts of the city. Nice, relaxing neighborhood that gives some breathing room from the tourist hubs.
My wife and I had the good fortune to enjoy the last two months in Ilona's wonderful house, extending beyond our original seven weeks. I always judge a place on how it feels to wake up there. The light in the house is spectacular, both in the morning and evening. It is superbly appointed in every way. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen is a great place to prepare meals, as is the barbecue grill in the backyard. The expanse of the sea beyond the second floor windows is as welcoming as the chance to walk it with all the surfers and neighbors. The bed in the master was Goldilocks's delight at least for us. This place is squared away. Every detail, linens, art work, all of it. We hope to return next year.
We stayed at Ilona's place with our young kids for nearly three months. The place was great, well kept and spacious for us to enjoy all shapes of weather during the fall. The appliances and furnishings of the house are excellent and we had most things we needed at hand from the very first day.
The neighbourhood is an interesting mix of a surf town and the outskirts, and the jogging trail by the ocean (or on the sand) was probably the nicest path we've ran on. Nothing like watching the waves on your jog, or from dining room table on a sunny day for that matter. Its easy to get downtown with public transport (although not necessarily quick) and by car to the south avoiding the downtown all together.
The host was helpful, but to be honest we didn’t really need much during our stay and despite one storm, we didn’t have any issues with the apartment. The backyard is really nice especially on a warm day to enjoy a meal outside and given its private, it offers a versatile space to use.
Overall, a very good apartment even for a larger group.
Ilona was very warm and accommodating. She allowed us to drop off our luggage early, which helped out a great deal. Her responses were prompt and kind. I felt like we stayed at a friend's house!
A very nice house at the SF-beach. Perfect for a family. Thanks, Ilona.
My colleagues stayed at Ilona's place for a month.
They were in San Francisco for a business trip but at her place they really felt like at home! Many thanks for the great stay!
