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.

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!

Spacious and beautiful home in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

The property owner provided excellent service that allowed us to drop our luggage from our early flight and while housekeeping continued we took a delightful walk down to the Marina area for some lunch. It was a record hot day in San Francisco and we were a little worried that the house would be too warm with no AC but after a relaxing gathering with family on the patio in the beautiful garden as the sun went down so did the temperature. Open windows also allowed for wonderful cross-breeze. The beds were all very comfortable and clean. Bathroom use was a little tricky as the full bathrooms are separated by a pocket door and when it is locked the master bath can only be accessed through the bedroom. But it was all clean and worked well after a long day of sight-seeing. The local Marina Market provided coffee, bagels, snacks and drinks and only a short walk around the corner. The coffee pot and toaster both worked great and got a real workout. Our owner left great directions and was accessible by email, text or phone when we needed some information about WiFi connections. It was the perfect Homeaway for our family gathering and we would recommend it for a stay in San Francisco!

  • 5 of 5

George provided a very lovely home, which was clean and spacious. Our group loved the house and the beds. Bathrooms were clean and well situated. The outdoor and indoor spaces were lovely. George was great to deal with. He communicated efficiently and was available for any questions. Oh, and did I say the location was fabulous? It was fabulous. It was close to buses, which took you anywhere in the city. Walking distance to Marina Green, Fort Mason, Presido, Union, and Chestnut. We loved our three day stay in George's house.
