Wonderful place and the owners were so wonderfully accommodating!

  • 4 of 5

Such a quiet, wonderful place to stay with plenty of space. Renters should be aware that it's a bit of a commute to get to the center of the city at times, but the quiet location near the ocean was wonderful. Got to watch a beautiful sunset. Would definitely rent again.

Charming and Comfortable Place Near the Beach and Owner Was Good to Work With.

  • 5 of 5

My granddaughter and I stayed here four days and it was perfect for us. I wake up earlier than her so I was able to use the bathroom and then let her get ready while I took a walk on the beach. It was basic but clean and everything was in working order. Owner was there to help as needed but nonintrusive. Location close to public transportation and Golden Gate Park. I would recommend it to anyone not needing a large facility.

QUIET, comfortable, convenient. Perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect. We stayed for 2 weeks and loved every minute. The number one quality is that it is incredibly quiet. Absolutely, not a sound at night. Our son lives down the street, so it was very convenient. We didn't rent a car - took the 7 Bus (2 blocks away) right into Market St. The unit has everything you would need to feel like you are at home.

Owner good to work with until they got their money

  • 2 of 5

Upon arriving, we noticed the outside was bit dirty but when we went inside our first thought was it was cute and cozy, which it was.

The good: Cozy and fits two adults and 2 kids ok and is a complete one bedroom apartment.

The Bad: The owner was very friendly and helpful until they got their money. I called late at night that their ceiling was leaking in two different places, one place was right above our head dripping on the bed. They never did respond and never even offered an apology. I didn't want money back, just an apology or some recognition that they were aware and would be fixed. There is a distinct smell of pet urine when sitting on the couch and the carpet in the bedroom is stained terribly. The bathroom has a very musty smell and we found it was because the toilet is leaking and has been for some time, the baseboard is moldy and rotten. With a few bucks and a couple hours elbow grease, this would be a much different place. Bed in bedroom squeaks horrible and wakes you up every time you move, mattress is sitting on the floor which is awkward when reaching for something on the night stand. The garden patio mentioned on the ad is filthy and unusable grass for kids to play in, its very un kept.

They require you to pay by check instead of paying though VRBO which is against VRBO policy.

Advice: Do your Due Diligence and scope out other VRBO's before renting, we will not be staying here again.

Owner's Response: We apologize for this negative experience. we were out of town but had our cell phones and never got your call, until we got back and found out about leaking from the unusual rain. we have had the carpets cleaned and the toilet and floorboard repaired. the grass has been cut and the patio cleaned. Again, our apologies.
