A PLACE FOR LIVING, not just sleeping! RELAX, You're Home! Great Monthly Rate!
- english, spanish
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 Lone Mountain
We have lived in the San Francisco area for almost 50 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 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 as soon as they enter. We think this is because we still live there part of each year 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! 170 Five 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 and head downtown or to the beach.

Great vacation rental
My wife and I were there February 2019. I exchanged an email with David the day before we departed telling him how much we enjoyed his house and my wife comment regarding my email was I didn't rave enough. We read the reviews before we rented and we felt they were too good to be true. They weren't, they were true. The pictures of the house reflect the actual house, very attractive and very comfortable. Also it is very well located in terms of close to the town center and availability of public transportation. We walked to the town center or back from the town center a number of times. We were advised to purchase a "Clipper Card" which allows you to use the bus, train, cable car and trolley on a monthly single payment ($39.00 for seniors) basis. A telephone map app is very useful for figuring out how to get places using the transit systems. The comfort and location of the house, the convenience of the transit system the garage to leave your car and San Francisco combined t make our stay one of our best travel experiences.
Thank you so much for your kind words! We work hard to make our place a real home, a well appointed and comfortable refuge for our guests. We are always glad to know our guests enjoy their stay and really appreciate you taking the extra time to share your experiences.
As private homeowners we depend on our guests to tell others about us. Thanks for letting others know our home is exactly as advertised - Attractive, Comfortable and Well Located in San Francisco!
It was great! It felt very homey and had everything we needed. The location was great, we enjoyed walking to different restaurants each day. We were very close to the Golden Gate park and often walked or rode bike there. The bus line was only a block away. We did bring a car and it was a tight fit in the garage but we were glad to have a place to park (finding parking in San Francisco is tough). I loved our stay
Thanks! We are so glad you loved your stay. We work hard to help our guests feel at home from the moment they arrive and we are happy you found comfort and convenience in our home and the surrounding area.
We had a great stay and would definitely return.
Comfortable and well-equipped accommodation in a very convenient location, close to many restaurants, a beautiful park, and a supermarket. Having the garage was an extra plus.
We are so glad you enjoyed our home and what we have done to make it comfortable and well equipped. You're right - the location is wonderful and the garage is a huge plus in San Francisco!! Thanks for choosing our home for your stay in San Francisco! We will look forward to your next visit.
Enjoy San Fransisco as a local!
On vacation from England, this is our second stay in this great home in a fantastic neighbourhood. We are already thinking about visit number three, what more is there to say! We’re in the city to catch up on the latest “hot” restaurants, so being able to get everywhere by walking and the occasional evening bus is just what we need to keep up an appetite! Thank you David for a perfect stay. Tartine Foundary is a great addition on the food front.
We are so glad you enjoyed your second stay as much as your first. Many of our guests are now repeat customers after enjoying their first (and yes, tenth!) stay. Its great you chose public transport and walking to get around. Many of our guests tell us it is much more convenient - and certainly cheaper! - than renting a car and trying to find parking in this congested city. We look forward to your next visit. Thanks for choosing to stay in our home again!
Nothing but impressed with this beautiful home! I was in the process of moving to San Francisco and looking for a temporary place to stay. I was so happy with my choice. The location is outstanding! Within steps to some of the best/most popular restaurants in town, golden gate park and more. David keeps the home in pristine condition and was very helpful and responsive with any question or problem I had. Would highly recommend!
Thanks so much for your kind words and for your recommendation! We always try to provide a real home for our guests and we are glad you found our place just what you needed to begin your new job and life in San Francisco.
Even better the second time around
We rented this apartment last summer, and were so impressed with its quality and spaciousness that we rented it again this summer. When we walked in this time, we just breathed a sigh of happiness, it was as good as we remembered. So much room! And such quality! Well worth the rental price. There are beautiful living and dining rooms, replete with paintings and prints that are wonderful. The bedroom is nicely removed from light and street sounds, great sleeps as a result. We cook as well as dine out when we're in the city, and the kitchen is large, and, again, beautifully appointed. There's a laundry room! How nice not be shoveling coins into pay machines down in the basement. We like to take buses and the three major routes out of the area get you quickly to all four compass points. A very modern Lucky's supermarket is literally a block away, and it's all flat walking (heavy groceries and SF hills don't agree with each other). Because of all these fine features and advantages, we enjoyed this trip to San Francisco even more than last summer. And, are we going to rent again? You bet! We've already booked next winter!
Wow! Thanks for your kind words! Our goal is to always provide our guests with a care free stay in a comfortable, beautifully appointed and well maintained home away from home. We are so happy we have once again fulfilled your expectations during your month-long visit to San Francisco! We are looking forward to your stay next year.
