Loved it!!

Cozy house in a quiet neighborhood, just a short Uber ride to local attractions. Sandi was a great host responded to our questions and concerns quickly. Hope we can visit again.

House was clean

  • 4 of 5

Overall great location and we didn’t spend much time at the house as we were out enjoying all that SD has to offer. A few downsides about the house: shared wall, no coffee maker and backyard was unusable. Street parking is all you get. Owner was super friendly and helpful - very easy to work/communicate with.

Comfortable home in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Sandi's home is quite comfortable and well-appointed. We made good use of the kitchen and enjoyed the home. The location is great, and we had no problem with parking on the street nearby the home. Highly recommended!
