Recent San Francisco Bay Area reviews

  • Amazing!

    "This was a great place to spend a few nights! The apartment was well equipped, cozy, and pretty easy to find. It's easy to get into the city from there, and also very close to Mt. Tam, Muir and Stinson Beaches. My only gripe is that we couldn't stay for longer. I'd recommend this place to anyone!"

  • A perfect place to unplug...

    "Waking and dreaming to the sound of the water lapping outside the Sea Mist made us feel we were farther away from home than we were. We hiked and explored Point Reyes and most of all relaxed and unplugged. The hot tub was perfect to slip into after a day’s worth of exercise. The Sea Mist 1 cottage was just the right size for our two daughters, my husband and I. As well as being clean, comfortable and well maintained. We enjoyed a meal at the Station House Cafe and bought beautiful organic ingredients at Toby's for our other meals. The water was a little too choppy for kayaking so we'll do that next time!"

  • Great Views, Great Location and Luxury - OH MY!!

    "We stayed at this beautiful home for a brief, but spectacular vacation in July. The views (night and day) are the first thing that will make this stay an instant success. The house is beautiful, comfortable and safe. The owners were to quick to respond and great to work with during our stay. The location is wonderful too! The area has great restaurants, coffee shops, and local grocery and supply stores. San Francisco sights were close and we caught the BART for the days we wanted to explore. We definitely plan to stay here again on our next visit! Thank you both for allowing us to experience our first trip to San Francisco in your home!"

  • A cozy home in Berkeley

    "My daughter and I spend 4 weeks in Berkeley and we are fortunate to have stayed in this cozy condo. The location of the condo is excellent. It is close to almost everything : Bart station, bus stop, grocery store, restaurants, boutiques and beauty salons. We felt so at home in this lovely decorated condo. The unit has ceiling to floor window with a nice view and I love to relax in the sofa to do reading in the sunlight filled hall. The kitchen is well-equipped and all bath amenities were also provided. The owner, Jim, is very helpful and hospitable. On the day that we arrived, Jim showed us the apartment and taught me the way to park my car in the interesting garage. Few days before we left Berkeley, he advised us on the Bayporter pickup so as to avoid miscommunication which might resulted in missing our flight. We really appreciated the help from Jim, as well as the friendly neighbours of the condo, in particular Gloria, to make our stay in Berkeley memorable. We would recommend this condo to anyone visiting Berkeley and if we are ever back in the bay area, we would love to stay here again."
