A Welcome Respite
"This is our review. Easy to write. It has been a wonderful stay at 87 Southampton Ave on so many levels. It provided the space we needed so my husband and I each had a professional "office" within the apartment. It had a deck with a sunset and a view of the Bay. We packed no more than our work related materials and our clothes; the Ansaris had thought of everything else.
Other reviewers have remarked about the generosity of wine and pastries in the apartment upon arrival. Also there was a beautiful platter of fresh fruit and coffee grounds (caf and decaf) ready for coffee in the morning. There was friendship with the Ansaries in a community where we didn't know anyone other than our own cherished extended family.
Oh, we should mention that the walking trails and street sidewalks are fascinating! Homes are personal and beautiful and maintained with care. You will be within walking distance of Solano Ave and also Shattuck Ave - restaurants and other destinations.
We were here for two months in the fall and look forward to returning next year."

"McGee is a beautiful apartment with a magical garden in a great residential location that is walking distance to downtown. There is great light in the apartment and it is a home away from home. We stayed there for 5 weeks and it was great!"

"We found this a great place to stay. It is at the back of a large house on a quiet street, less than two blocks from the restaurants, food stores and shops of College St and a few more walkable blocks to the BART station. We had a car, but on street parking was plentiful and the owner provided us a zone parking placard. It is secure, with a lockable gate from the street. The place is light-filled and everything in it is new, modern and luxurious. It is fully stocked with equipment and there is plentiful closet and drawer space.The outside deck with a table and chairs overlooking the quiet garden was a welcome place to sit and watch the Monarch butterflies and even entertain friends. We were there as part of a two week trip and really appreciated the washer and dryer! Murray was out of town while we were there, but Martha was a perfect host! The one suggestion we would make concerns the wi-fi service. It was occasionally hard to stay on and needs to be strengthened to better cover both rooms of the cottage. However, this was the nicest of several small places we have booked in the greater SF area and we recommend it enthusiastically!"
