Activities are varied and engaging, and the food is generally appreciated, although some suggest there could be more availability of snacks and drinks outside of meal times. Some reviewers mention the facility's effective COVID-19 protocols and the fact that it is a family-run business, which they feel adds a personal touch.

    Buena Vista Manor House has been run by David for decades. They have provided a great community service for San Franciscans for many years. Located about the Haight in Buena Vista Terrace, residents can turn back the clocks to this amazing Art Deco style community. This assisted living is a local run business.

    Stunning community! I recently toured here and was blown away by the charm and beauty of the property. The views are spectacular up on a hill, and floor-to-ceiling windows make the space feel light and happy. Residents were socializing when I visited and were happy to greet me as I walked by. The staff was energetic and friendly. Overall, Buena Vista Manor house is great!

    When visiting Buena Vista Manor House, I instantly noticed there were residents spending time with one another in the front lobby. While touring the community, there was a warm homey feeling and several of the rooms were sunny and had views of San Francisco. I was excited to walk by a group of residents and spotted the Activity Director, Susie, enjoying a game of Bingo. Susie has working at the community for 22 years and says that Bingo still is the most popular activity for the residents! Buena Vista Manor House has been around for over 30 years and attracts long time San Franciscans.

    Buena Vista Manor House is such a unique community. Nestled across the street from Buena Vista Park, the community has some of the best views of San Francisco and the Bay! But what truly makes this community special is the staff. I was welcomed warmly and noticed staff laughing and enjoying company with the residents in the living room. Every person I met was responsive and engaging with all of the residents. I just love the passion and dedication you can feel when you are at this community!
