A base for exploring San Francisco

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is remarkably free from traffic noise, given its location on a busy road. It is part of a family home with children and a dog living upstairs so some noise is therefore to be expected and it didn't really bother us.

Convenient for visiting Golden Gate Park, Castro and Mission, in a residential neighbourhood at the top of a steep hill (not unusual) but there is a nearby bus stop (33) that we used most days for our uphill return journeys.

The bedroom is bright and cosy with a (soft) comfortable bed. Linens and towels are plentiful. The living/kitchen area is clean but is dated and looking tired. The doors to the garden still seem to be a bit 'foggy' ( a previous visitor commented on this as it tends to obscure the garden view). The garden itself is a nice feature - if a little overgrown. We would probably have used it more if it had been equipped with a small garden table and a couple of chairs.

We dined out quite a bit during our 9 day stay and discovered good Italian and a Mexican restaurants on nearby Cole Street. We managed to cook a few meals and there was sufficient equipment for our needs. The only thing missing was a kettle, which would have been really useful as we had to use a small saucepan to boil water to make tea.

The apartment would be a good base for a short stay in SF.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Bryan was an excellent host; very communicative and accommodating, and my deposit was returned within two days of departure. The location is excellent and within walking distance of several key destinations and neighborhoods (Haight-Ashbury is only a ten-minute walk!), as well as close to public transportation. The apartment itself is lovely, with a very comfortable bed and linens, as well as a patio to relax on after a day trekking up those hills! Bryan provided an air mattress for our daughter, as well as extensive information about the neighborhood. Overall we had a wonderful time and would definitely stay again on our next trip to SF. Thanks Bryan!

Consistent as advertised

  • 3 of 5

The Good: Wonderful patio, great location, parking was convenient, apartment was clean, plenty of towels

The not so good: Bed was a futon not a traditional mattress, the rug was dated, the kitchen could use some measuring utensils and baking pans, and the air mattress would not hold air.

We stayed two weeks and and made it work for us, the price was reasonable but would be more selective for extended stays.

As advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Bryan's apartment was exactly what we expected, and we were very pleased with it. We had cocktails in the lovely garden, which is quiet for San Francisco, and loved opening the bedroom curtains when we woke up to a great view of it. The bed is soft and very comfortable ( a matter of taste - my wife found it "squishy"), and the bedroom is virtually soundproof. The living area is very comfortably furnished, and a pleasant place for a little reading as a break in the San Fran tourist action. We would stay there again with enthusiasm.

Great Neighorhood - Cole Valley

  • 4 of 5

This is a quiet one bedroom. You might think that you would hear street traffic sounds, but once inside they are abated. To sit in the sunshine and view the garden in the back is so relaxing. We all know that San Francisco evenings are chilly, even in the summer, but once you slip into that comfortable bed with comforters it was warm and cozy. Down on Cole Street, yes a few blocks down hill, walk it, there are a couple of great places to eat and a patisserie. You can always Uber or Lyft up the hill.
