Recent San Francisco Bay Area reviews

  • Much better than a motel and cheaper

    "We stayed here while visiting my daughter in San Lorenzo. The location was perfect. The furnishings look different than the picture; I think even nicer. The kitchen was well furnished, the bed was comfortable and the unit was very clean. It was convenient having the washer and drier available. As mentioned in other reviews, having a designated parking space is wonderful in Alameda. We took the ferry to San Francisco one day, a great way to get to Fisherman's wharf or downtown. We will stay here again when we are in the area."

  • Great views! Great Home! Great neighborhood!

    "Our family of seven began our 10 day California vacation at this beautiful home. Since we only had one day in San Francisco this was the perfect place for our adult children to experience the flavor of the city by living in this great neighborhood, which was safe, friendly, walking distance to shops, restaurants and transportation. David was a very gracious and attentive host who met us upon our arrival. He provided a great deal of information about SF. The views from all the rooms and terraced backyard were fantastic! The rooms were spacious with lovely décor. Clean and contemporary. No worries about the front stairs as there are landings between flights if one needs to take a break! We found parking on the street immediately in front of the house. We would definitely love to stay again when we return to San Francisco."

  • Perfect Place!

    "I just rented the home for the weekend to celebrate my 40th with my friends. The location is perfect to get the beach and be close to the town. The set up in the home is great for many guests and extremely comfortable. Very comfy beds too. It is well equipped with most needed items. The property is gorgeous with lush greenery and privacy. While good, the pictures don't quite do it justice. The property manager Bill is absolutely great and the owner Charles is easy to work with and gets back to you on a timely fashion. I'd easily rent this home again and again. Thank you for such a perfect weekend. We all just loved it."
