The home was built in 1940 and has only had one owner. Oxford Manor has been brought back to its' original charm. University Mound area is San Francisco's best kept secret. Two blocks to McLaren Park. A good weather area. The master bedroom is called, 'The Hall of Flowers', and has a queen size bed with view of the backyard. The 'Sausalito Room', also has a queen size bed with a an electric fireplace hearth. The private 'Rosewood Suite', downstairs is another bedroom with a double bed for two.

    Property as described with more than enough space for the 7 of us. 16 August 2017 - 19:24:00

    We spent 4 nights at Holly and Eric's property and loved every minute of our stay. We had 7 adults and 2 children and all slept comfortably. Every need was cared for from coffee and tea to shampoo and conditioner. The house was immaculate, cozy and inviting. I would advise that you have a car for best access to downtown San Francisco and all its sights. Our entire party commented on what a nice home this was. It was perfect for our mini family get together and I would definitely stay again when in San Francisco. 11 September 2017 - 18:18:00

    We were a large group and we were all comfortable. The downstairs bedrooms are separate living spaces which my adult children appreciated. Loved the small and private backyard garden. Holly provided detailed information and instructions about the home. Thank you for sharing your home. 21 July 2017 - 00:39:00

    We were in San Francisco for a cousins reunion. Staying in a hotel was not an option with 2 five-year-old grandsons. This home did comfortably sleep 9 people. It was well furnished and had all the household items anyone would need. We enjoyed the architecture from the 1940's. 24 September 2017 - 21:59:00

    There was nine of us stayed there for a week and found it very cozy. It is near the bus stops which will bring you right into the city so I would recommend it to anyone thinking of renting in San Francisco.G Maher 06 October 2017 - 21:07:00

    My family of six had a wonderful stay in this property. It is well-maintained and beautifully decorated. We had all the amenities we desired. The location in University Mound was convenient for driving to other parts of San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area. We enjoyed having McLaren Park nearby--there is a great view of the city. The owner was accessible and helpful throughout our stay. 16 August 2013 - 01:32:30

    My girlfriend and I stayed here and the location was perfect for what we wanted to see. Close to Mission Street, the Painted Ladies, and Fisherman's Wharf. The house was clean and neat when we arrived. It was very well taken care of. The natural lighting opens up the whole house, especially the kitchen. The back patio was my favorite part. It was peaceful and pretty and has a geranium garden. There are vines and plants surrounding it that give you privacy, too. It's a great place for tea in the morning. The owner was kind and sincerely wanted us to feel at home. She made us feel welcome and answered all of our questions. I recommend going to nearby Mission Street for some great thrift shopping. 07 November 2013 - 03:42:12

    My boyfriend and our two friends were so pleased with our stay here at the Oxford house. What an amazing location! It is in the heart of the city and so close to Mission Street as well as a short drive to China town and all of the sight seeing the city has to offer. The house was emaculately clean when we arrived. The layout of the house is great. It has a wonderful open kitchen lots of space to cook. The themed rooms were so great the Sausalito room was my favorite! We would start our mornings by enjoying our breakfast on the peaceful and private back yard patio. I would absoultely reccomend this place to friends and family. The owner of the house was very attentive and kind and aswered all of our questions. We can't wait for our next visit! 24 January 2014 - 22:46:41

    The layout of the main floor and its two bedrooms (and their beds) were great. The large kitchen and adjacent dining/breakfast area were great for family gathering and a sit-down meal for six adults traveling together. The rear sun porch was a nice quiet area to retreat to. One of our party spent the first night in the lower floor bedroom, but felt too claustrophobic. She slept the last two nights of our stay on the sun porch on sleeper sofa with some windows open and loved it. We were driving a Dodge van (carrying six adults) and the parking in the garage was tightbut we fit. Parking on the street would have been hard to find. Once we figured out the highways in San Francisco, the location on University Hill was accessible (by car) to everything we wanted to see. 09 August 2014 - 12:09:42

    We had a lovely time staying the weekend at Oxford Manor to celebrate a family birthday. The sun room with the sleeper-sofa was actually a favorite for us, it led directly out to a little garden where the kids loved to hangout and relax! The kitchen and dining area were smaller but very homey; we made breakfast and lunch there and would venture into the City for dinner. Most things we wished to visit were driving distance, but there was a nice park a short walk away which was fun. Im sure there are other places close by to visit if you are interested in walking in the area. It was very hard to find a rental to accommodate more than four people in SF, and this certainly fit the bill. The neighborhood was cute, and we were quite surprised at how quiet it was in the evening; very relaxing! We traveled with 3 cars and had no trouble finding parking more than a block from the house, very convenient. One small thing to note is that the windows did not have screens. We just made sure the little one wasnt crawling around when we had the windows open. If you are traveling with kids, a pack-and-play would be helpful. Plenty of comfortable seating and sleeping, all in all a great stay in a beautiful city! 22 September 2014 - 17:07:39

    Very convenient and cozy. The garage is bad. And parking space is not available on the street sometimes. But even with parking issue everything was great and lovely. 06 January 2015 - 22:34:22

    I just returned home from a great vacation where I stayed in this home. Even with 6 people, it felt very spacious. We were able to pull right into a garage and had plenty of room to get our luggage out. The beds were super comfortable, the skylights gave the place sunlight all day, and the rooms are large. There were two bathrooms for our convenience and the outdoor area is charming and private. I love the way it is decorated with San Francisco artifacts and artwork. I will definitely go back. 25 February 2015 - 19:41:56

    Holly was great to work with from start to finish. House was only a couple blocks from a great park with running trails. Only downside was the creaky beds like others had mentioned. 09 November 2017 - 00:19:00

    The house was spacious. It had all the amenities. It was close to Union Square and Pier 39. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of room. Owner was very accessible. We loved it. 18 December 2017 - 20:47:00

    The owners were very informative and accommodating. All aspects of our stay were memorable and we look forward to making another trip in the future where we can visit and see more of the city while staying in this beautiful home. 02 January 2018 - 14:50:00

    it was quiet and relaxing to stay there. Close to everything but in a neighborhood setting. We appreciate all that the hosts have thought of to make this place as comfortable as possible. We had plenty of room for our family. It worked out really well and we all loved this home. 07 January 2018 - 18:25:00

    The house is nice and has character. It is not what we were expecting from the description. It was a 20 to 30 minute drive to San Francisco's main tourist area. So that meant $30 taxi fare each way. There is a bus but that takes an hour. The main problem was it says it sleeps 9 and has 4 bedrooms. Well one of the bedrooms was accessible through another bedroom so no privacy and the other bedroom was in the basement with no windows. The 4 th bedroom was only a single pull out bed and the other bedding which was supposed to be a double was a pull out bed in the lounge room that was so uncomfortable it wasn't funny. 11 January 2017 - 11:47:00

    The home was nice and very suitable for our business trip. The house was older and what you see in the photos is exactly what you get. There were two bedrooms upstairs and the a sunroom which has a pull out couch. You have to walk through one of the bedrooms to get to the sunroom, meaning one guy had to walk through another person bedroom in the morning or to use the bathroom. There are two bedrooms downstairs which is hard to tell from the photos. All beds and rooms were clean and comfortable, no complaints there. The only pain point we really had was the WiFi was almost unusable. This house would be a better rental for a romantic get away rather than for a business trip. 16 November 2017 - 00:55:00
