About George

I'am a 5th generation San Francisco native who has renovated and restored this classic SF Victorian Home to it's original glory. Pictures do not do justice it was built in 1875 and is one of the first homes in the Marina/Cow Hollow district. Come and enjoy it's the best!

George purchased this house in 2012

Why George chose San Francisco

I really love this home. It's just a great combination of San Francisco History,built in 1875, with the San Francisco of today. The photo is from the Marina which is a short walk from Scott Street. All that come here enjoy the location and history that this property has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Location, safety, views, great restaurants nightlife and shopping. Reviews by travelers confirm all of this.

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to San Francisco, and we loved it. The house is gorgeous and well maintained. We love the look and feel of the home. The backyard is small but private and a great place to socialize. All of the beds are very comfortable. There is a small shopping area only two blocks away, and we were able to find everything that we needed.

Very charming and lovely

  • 4 of 5

I loved that the home was older and had lots of character. It was big enough so we never felt crowded or the feeling you are on top of each other. Lots of good food and coffee shops within walking distance and in a beautiful area. You could take an uber or public transportation pretty much anywhere. The reason I gave it a 4 star was the communication before the trip with George. I would send a message and he would respond days later or not at all. The day before we arrived it did get better. I was communicating through the vrbo app not directly so not sure if that was the issue. Also one of the mattresses I would recommend replacing. It was not very comfortable and you could feel the springs through the mattress. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay and thank you George for sharing your home!! I would rent again!

Great stay in Cow Hollow

  • 5 of 5

We had a fine time in S.F. House is large, well-situated for many activities in town, clean, and well-appointed. Kitchen is completely stocked with cooking gear, spices, and condiments. Blooming garden provides a sweet floral aroma. George communicated promptly and well. Everything was excellent!
