Some disappointments, some positives

  • 3 of 5

I was really looking forward to staying here and enjoying our "home away from home". There were some frustrations right from the start. The confirmation email that I received indicated that we would receive the door code closer to our arrival and also included owner's phone number. I called the number the day before and also the morning of our arrival, expecting to be given the code (at least by check-in time). We got to the condo and still no response, so I had to send another message. Also, contacted HomeAway. During that call the owner called me, finally giving up the code. Here are the things in the condo that were disappointing: sofa was stained in several places, throw pillows on the sofa were falling apart and also dirty, lots of dust bunnies by the nightstand (had to plug in the lamp and the dust was incredible), coffeemaker was a Keurig and required coffee pods (would have been nice to know since we brought regular filters and ground coffee), there is no oven (though listing includes oven), there is a huge cart in the closet area that takes up too much room and is not of any use to renters, also old CRT on table in living room that just takes up space (it's not plugged in to anything, so we didn't know what it was intended for), musty smell in bedroom. Most of these things could be easily fixed, and really should be!

Here are the things we liked: decent size unit for SF, parking up the street with no time limits, large shower with good water pressure, some condiments in kitchen made food prep easier, good location near public transportation.

So, close to everything!

Thanks for allowing me to use your apartment. The apartment did look just like the pictures. The bathroom was great and the bed was comfy. The only areas I saw for improvement were the fact that the second refrigerator was not working and taped closed, I would have preferred more bathroom cleaning supplies to keep it tidy during the visit, and the two throw pillows on the couch have definitely surpassed their useful life. They are soiled and tattered.

I would definitely stay here again.

Loved the area, although the steps were a bit steeper than expected.

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice. The people above very noisy. The apt for the most part clean, but was full of cob webs. The apt was full of dust and dirt bunnies. I stripped the bed and pillow for washing, the pillows either need to be washed or replaced. Over all was very nice otherwise. Maybe some cleaning products to do cleaning while people are using unit. The pinesol was crystalized. Sorry used a bit of the Dawn cleaning up. I left towels and sheets on floor next to toilet.

Once again, thank you allowing us to stay.

Really enjoyed my stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. Stewart is a perfect host. If you prefer to eat in, the kitchen has everything you need. The apartment is close to the castro station muni system. You will enjoy very much the Castro district. All services close by. The people are friendly. Nice atmosphere. Close to downtown. Quiet at night. If you are planning a longer stay, the bedroom bed is super comfy, the sofa bed so-so. Thank you so much Stewart for your availability and our wonderful stay. Helene

it is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is complete with anything you may need. The location works if you use pubic transportation or your own. The owner was helpful in locating restaurants the locals use! Bedding was comfortable and we had plenty of room for the two of us.

The perfect place for our 5 day stay in SF

  • 4 of 5

We had an active trip visiting with friends, catching a Giants game, going to museums and other joys of the city and location was just right.

It is just as advertised and very comfortable.
