A Queen Anne cottage built in 1890, it looks small from our quiet, tree-lined street, but it has 3 stories and plenty of room. Each room is cozy and stylish, including a room designed for children. Has all amenities and all you need is close by.

The space

Our lovely Queen Anne home dates from 1890, though its grown in size and sophistication over the years, as has the neighborhood. It's located on a quiet, treelined little street, one-way and only one block long, but within steps of everything one could want: many different bus and metro lines, "The Wiggle" bike route, bars, cafes, stores, and Duboce Park, one of San Francisco's best. On Walk Score it rates 100 as both a "Walker's Paradise" and a "Rider's Paradise"; it's also rated 89 for cycling as "Very Bikeable (some hills, excellent lanes)".

It looks tiny from the street -- it used to be called the "Doll House" by our close-knit group of neighbors -- but opens up to three floors. The ground floor is the "public" space with an open, sunny kitchen with modern, high quality conveniences, an open dining room that runs into a little sitting area next to the sliding glass doors that open onto a sunny little balcony. There's a gas BBQ on the balcony and a spiral staircase to the back patio (where there's a traditional egg BBQ). There's also a family room with a gas fireplace and large flatscreen TV, a library & office, and a full bath. The lower floor has the master bedroom, with its own master bath, and opens onto the backyard with a hot tub. Also downstairs is a nice little room with a built-in desk, a toddler's bed and its own full bath; there's also storage room a-plenty. The attic room is large with a Queen bed and a single, a built-in desk, and a sitting area with a TV & gaming console. The entire home is decorated with unique artwork gathered from around the world.

Nico's place is truly a gem. It has the most perfect location if you are visiting SF for the first time and want to be close to everything. The place is way better than the pictures and that we expected; you can see the love and effort that has been put to decorate the house which make you feel like at your own home. Clear and simple rules, great host.

Nico's house was the perfect spot for a girls weekend. Communication was great, the space was eclectic and convenient. Would highly recommend this place for future travelers and would most definitely stay again.

We enjoyed a lovely stay in Nico's unique and well-appointed home for a birthday celebration. My brother was happy with the attic room, and the sofa bed was a comfortable for my sister. My mom loved the luxurious master, and I was cozy in the toddler room! Nico is very responsive and a gracious host. His restaurant tips were much appreciated, as the food at each establishment was excellent. It should probably be noted that the spiral staircase upstairs is steep, and there is no bathroom in the attic, so anyone who stays up there should be comfortable descending steep stairs at night! That being said, it is a fun little adventure to go up and down them! Thanks for sharing this quiet, cozy spot in lower Haight! Brigid Newton

We certainly have found a gem with Nico's place, it was above & beyond our expectations, the pictures do not do it justice! The house is immaculately furnished with great tastes, down to the smallest detail. It's a dream for people who value design and architecture. Nico was the best host, detailed with his notes and recommendations. We were there with 3 children, the house had everything we needed. It is conveniently located, easy access to many delicious restaurants and great parks! Our stay in San Francisco was made perfect by this wonderful home, thank you Nico & family!!! Cheers, Neeza

There is nothing not to like about Nico's place. Stylish decorated with all the mods. Was easy to reach and neighborhood felt really genuine. Super spots within minutes (breakfast at Kate's was unforgettable). And Nico was a great host.

Our group of 7 adults enjoyed a 4 night stay at this beautiful home. The house is clean, spacious and centrally located, with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Public transportation is only steps away. The house offered everything we needed. Thanks Nico for trusting us with your home.
