"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."

"My three kids, wife, and I had a wonderful time in San Francisco staying at this property. We enjoyed sitting out on the little patio after a long day at the Exploratorium or Alcatraz. The property is well kept, clean, and has everything you might need for a relaxing stay. We would definitely book again here!"

"We had the best stay at Ellen and John's Ashbury Garden Studio! We were so pleased to arrive and have the apartment be evening larger than the photos and oh so charming. Everything worked perfectly and it was immaculately cleaned, cozy and felt just like home. The neighborhood was perfect for us, you can walk everywhere, but super quiet in the apartment, nice neighbors and really well located. The hosts Ellen and John could not have been more accommodating, we wished we could have stayed longer! Anyone looking for a safe, clean and personal experience in the City, this place is for you. We will be back!!"

"We had a superb stay at this cottage. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming, full of local knowledge and everything was provided to make our stay great. The hot tub was a great bonus after a day walking the SF hills. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and will certainly be recommending this to all of our friends. The area is very close to a main MUNI line and it is easy to get about. There are shops and cafes within very close proximity and yet the area feels quiet and a welcome refuge from the hustle of the city."
