About David

We are a retirement age couple who find ourselves away from San Francisco often these days. Although we love our home and we love San Francisco, we also like to travel. Now we rent our home to guests like you while we are away. When we are home we are usually working to upgrade and refresh our house. We know you will enjoy the results!

David purchased this condo in 1999

Why David chose San Francisco

We have lived in the San Francisco area for more than 40 years and purchased our San Francisco home in 1999. In 2001 we began to spend time away and a friend suggested we try VRBO. We soon learned that people really enjoyed our home-like atmosphere. We are thrilled with the response we have gotten and we work hard to keep our new and returning guests contented and feeling cared for. Visitors say they appreciate our knowledge of the city and our professional attitude.

What makes this condo unique

Most guests mention the feeling of a being in a real home on entering the house. We think this is because we still live there part-time and keep the house comfortable and well maintained not only for our guests but for ourselves as well. We are also proud of our garden, keeping it maintained even while we are away. We paint, scrape, clean, renew, update and replace parts of the house every time we come to visit. We think it shows. Our guests certainly enjoy our home. Read the reviews! Over 150 5 star ratings. We get these ratings not because everything is always perfect (we do try, however!) but because we go out of our way to help our guests settle in and feel at home and we respond quickly to any question. Finally, if you are bringing a car, you will absolutely love our little garage (for economy to mid-size cars). Parking rules in SF can make you dizzy. If you don't bring a car - great! - hop on the bus one block from the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. The house is exactly how it looks, and has everything from a huge TV, to a fully equipped kitchen (better than mine at home!) There are also a number of rooms (dining area, kitchen, lounge and front room); meaning even if the maximum number of people stayed it wouldn’t feel cramped. The garden was also beautiful, and much bigger than the picture suggests. I even spied a BBQ!

Lucky supermarket (a full supermarket, not just a corner shop) is a short block away. It literally had every type of food you could imagine. As the kitchen was so well stocked I did end up preparing my own breakfasts, and cooked a couple of evenings. There were many pantry items left over from previous guests, so if you wanted to cook a meal you could check before going to Lucky. I was so glad of the kitchen, as a solo traveler eating out at night seemed a bit daunting. Plus it meant I had the home comforts in a great new city.

The laptop, printer and internet were useful. Used it to order take out one night (so I could watch the first episode of Glee on the biggest TV I've ever seen in my life). Connection was great, and the laptop large enough for a couple of people to crowd round and decide what to do in San Francisco. My Mac laptop also logged on to the wifi fine.

The bus stop was literally around the corner, and using the internet I was able to print out all routes very easily. I bought a 7 day passport that gave you unlimited travel on the Muni system. However at only $2 per trip, I don't think the passport was needed. When entering the bus your ticket is valid for up to 90 minutes. The maximum time I spent traveling was 45 minutes, and that was to the zoo so travel time really wasn't long. Plus you get to feel like a native (3 times somebody asked me for directions, so I think I blended in well!!!) the closest bus was also 24 hours so no worrying about trying to get home at night.

Booking the apartment was easy, and the few questions I had were answered very quickly. Given the time difference (I am in the UK) I do wonder if David does ever actually sleep.

There was a document provided that had all info in. everything from taxi numbers, to emergency contact details and how the washing machine works.

I would definitely stay here again. Much nicer than one of the hotels around union square (and cheaper, especially if you cook some meals)

Definitely first class guest service in mind! Enjoy this gem!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t wait to return to this gem of a home. I was enjoying my week’s stay so much I actually didn’t want to leave! I think you’ll feel the same! It is a delightful mix of vintage San Francisco, wonderful artwork and modern updates in the kitchen and bath. The pictures do not exaggerate the charm and artfully appointed living spaces. You can tell the owners have put much soul and time in to truly make this a welcoming and very comfortable home for a lovely getaway or an extended stay. Definitely first class guest service in mind! What a great responsive host! Just about all the essential “little things” were there. Did I say this home is clean, comfortable, charming, clean, convenient; you can walk to Golden Gate Park and it’s a straight short-ish shot to the beach, and a close walk to a full super market (like less than 2 blocks away), coffee shops, bus stops, and some good places to eat? Or you can always relax with a book or glass of wine in the lovely outside patio/garden area. If you are a media junkie or staying for business I don’t think you’ll be disappointed either. David has prepared great operating manuals for the business station, media center, and kitchen and laundry appliances, along with great suggestions for your stay. Enjoy!!

Comfortable and well-appointed home in the heart of San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

This year was the first time I rented a whole flat for six weeks and I couldn't be more pleased about the experience. The home has a full complement of conveniences such as a fully equipped kitchen, washer dryer, computer, cable television and even garage parking. It is very attractive, clean and comfortable and can accommodate quite a few people although there were just two of us. The owner is extremely conscientious and responsive so, even though there is no face-to-face contact, any questions and concerns are promptly and efficiently addressed. My kids and grandkids did come over a bit and it was so fun to have such a nice place in which to gather. The location is ideal for touring San Francisco--we bought clipper cards for transit use and bussed and walked most of the peninsula. Bus use is so convenient from this location and leads to downtown, Japantown and Chinatown, east to the beaches, north to Fort Mason--virtually every direction. We also borrowed my daughter's car a few times for trips to East Bay and parked in the garage (although even the small Honda Fit must be maneuvered with great care to save the mirrors--but it's totally doable). This home is just blocks from Golden Gate Park and from east to west in the park, there is so much to appreciate. From interesting people in all manner of costume, to science and art museums, to the gorgeous botanical garden and AIDS Memorial to the many varieties of wildlife and water foul and the stunning cliffs and beaches--Golden Gate Park is an amazing resource. We so enjoyed it. From this home one can also access the Haight, Twin Peaks, the Castro, the Mission and points south.

There is a grocery store one block away and many smaller specialty stores as well. There are coffee shops, restaurants of all kinds and many other resources within easy walking distance.

If you're looking for an authentic and very comfortable San Francisco experience, this is your place. You will not be disappointed.

Spacious and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a month in David's home in San Francisco and had a great time. As previous reviews have mentioned, the house is conveniently located in NoPa, nicely furnished, well-equipped, and very comfortable. David has done an excellent job of providing instructions for the appliances, TV, DVD player, etc. We also really appreciated having a full sized washer and dryer in a separate room which was so convenient. There is also a nice collection of books and DVDs, along with a laptop, printer and fax. David has thought of just about everything one would need. The home is within a couple minutes walk to a few muni bus lines (#43 Masonic, #5 Fulton, #21 Hayes) which will take you all over the city. The nearby Fulton Market is just a block and a half away, and Target and a Trader Joes's are only a 12 to 15 minute walk or a short bus ride away. We will definitely seek a return visit to this home in the future.

Absolutely wonderful home-away-from-home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 5-month stay in David's beautifully appointed San Francisco home! It is beautifully decorated, filled with every amenity we could think of, and truly felt like we were living in our own home. The backyard is an oasis of calm with lush landscaping, comfortable seating and hummingbirds. The kitchen is modern with great appliances and kitchenware. The bedroom is cozy, ultra comfortable and importantly, very quiet. There are 3 perfect places to eat: the large dining room, the kitchen table and the counter. With a family room AND a living room, there are so many places to relax and enjoy. The bonus: a laundry room AND a garage! David is an impeccable host...he is super responsive and just a pleasure to deal with, and always helpful with suggestions. Staying here was an overall perfect experience for us as we transitioned to relocating permanently to San Francisco!!! We couldn't recommend it more highly!

Your home in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week renting this well appointed apartment in NoPa. The place was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The location convenient walking distance to restaurants and shops, yet one or two blocks into quiet residential territory. I was just remembering our visit from last year and saying to my spouse "We have to go back"! David is an extraordinary host. Professional and attentive, yet very respectful of privacy. We had a great ten days and will be back.

Fantastic home for our family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 stayed in this wonderful home for 4 nights in a wonderful part of San Francisco. Plenty of room and privacy for couple and teenage son. Everything you could possibly need for your stay was provided in the home including use of all electronic equipment such as internet, laptop, tv, dvd player, etc. Wonderful, large kitchen, facilities like washer/dryer which were invaluable, beautiful garden out back where you could sit quietly with a cuppa; local supermarket was 2 mins away and bus stops to take you downtown or to see Golden Gate Bridge all within easy walking distance. The home has a fabulous manual for FAQ. Booked trip to Alcatraz and again no problem getting to the pier from the home via public transport. 30 min taxi ride to the airport. Communciation with David the homeowner was easy and straightforward with excellent instructions and tips for our arrival. Would recommend this place in a hearbeat! You won't find better!
