  • Perfect vacation in Guillermo house

    "We past a really good trip in San Francisco. The apartment is beautiful and the garden waouw really cute. You have public transport near, it's perfect. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans ce bel appartement très bien placé. Le jardin est vraiment sympa. Vous pouvez aussi bien manger à l'appartement grâce à la cuisine ( top) mais également dans le quartier de castro ou il y a beaucoup d'animations. Le bus ou métro est à proximité. Merci pour tout Guillermo"

  • Enjoyed our stay

    "I was re reading the previous reviews and have to shake my head at those who complained about the noise. This is a city and with a city can come every city noise imaginable from street noise to neighbor noise. If you do not want to stay in a city, then go to the Suburbs. I was so excited to be staying is such a beautiful home especially since I am currently renovating a 1930s home. I was studying all the little details about this house and hope to find some similar items for my house. This may be a little detail that others may not notice but is something that is unique - your towels and sheets are amazing! Where did you get them? I couldn't figure out the brand names. The beds were sooo comfortable. I know it sounds weird to rave about such things but I have stayed in many vacation rentals around the world and never has an owner cared about those things so I just wanted to point them out. I do have a couple of suggestions: 1. You should create a "information" binder that gives your guest information about the house. I have seen other vacation rental owners do this and it is very helpful and may help eliminate some of the complaints that people have. Such as where to find the toilet paper (I figured you would have some so I just looked in the most obvious place and easily found them) Also how to work the TV, stove, laundry, fireplace. Even though you may think these things are obvious, it doesn't hurt to provide the info. 2. You do need an internet "booster" to help get internet in the back of the house. The signal is very strong up until you get to the 2nd bedroom but then you cant get it in the kitchen or dining room. I don't know what the technical name is for them other than booster but I have them all over my house in Bermuda because our walls are made of concrete so the signal needs a boost. It is something you can easily plug into the wall in the dining room. We absolutely loved being here. The neighborhood is perfect and we will definitely be back again."

  • Perfect House

    "We were looking for a house that could accommodate 8 family members comfortably in a robust location. We found our match in the Castro district with this home. First, the house was absolutely spotless from top to bottom. Second, there was plenty of room for our entire party - each couple and both teenagers had their own rooms and access to one of the four bathrooms –there was no arguing over who was using them. The bathrooms were well appointed with plenty of clean towels, soap and shampoo, and soft robes. Third, with my brother and I being the ‘cooks’ of the family, we were more than happy to see the kitchen well stocked with basic provisions, high-end appliances and sufficient kitchen tools to meet our discerning needs. The only thing that was really missing were sharper knives! Regardless, we were able to cook problem-free five of the six nights of our stay. Finally, the garden area was also great with a BBQ where we all took turns basking in the sun and enjoying the December SF weather. The home was very well located and within walking distance to interesting areas such as Castro, the Mission District and Haight-Ashbury. It was also a surprisingly short underground ride to the Union Square shopping district, Chinatown and the Ferry Terminal. For groceries, a Safeway and Whole Foods were close by (within a 15 minute walk) as well as a couple of convenience and liquor stores within an even shorter distance. In summary the house was everything as advertised. Sharon was great from start to finish – we could not have asked for a better host. She even helped us get a parking pass for the week. We would not hesitate to rent this house again next time we are in San Francisco – perhaps even next year!"

  • Business is business

    "We arrived at 2.00pm when check in was at 4.00pm so I asked Patty if there was a possibility for us 5 (amongst us 2 ladies ages 80 and 73) just to pop in to leave or luggage and come back after 4.00 The answer was yes but the cost would be of 50$ !!!!! "it is for the inconvenience of the house keeper, since she has to work around the luggage" !!! I doubt the housekeeper got a cent from this money. Nevertheless I must say we enjoyed the house which was exaclty as we expected, with a fantastic view, charming neighbourhood, shops 10mn walking. Reaching dowtown takes a bit of time but we knew that before renting the apartment. It was not a problem for us. Bedding was very confortable. Now a few things I wouldn't have mentioned if I hadn't had pay this extra charge: we kept the toilet doorhandle in hand when closing door. We had the same problem with the tap handle, same room. The pans handles were sticky and a there were a few stains on the walls probably left by travellers luggage as well as some handprints. The facade needs to be repainted, the painting is peeling (one can consider it gives charm to the property). We have never met the person in charge of the property nor the owner."
