2 bedroom not 3

  • 2 of 5

Toula has a beautiful home that has fantastic views of the SF bay area. Her home is listed as a 3 bedroom, but it is not. Upon arrival, we found that one of the "bedrooms" is an office with a sofa bed and a blow-up mattress. the air mattress was on the floor. This was disappointing for our guest and for us as we felt misled. It appeared that the owner lived there and had quickly done a surface cleaning of the house. In fact, in the master bathroom, there was a tissue with shavings from her eyeliner pencil sitting on the bathroom counter. When we rented the home, Toula required me to purchase an additional insurance policy as well as giving her a security deposit and a cleaning fee. The night before we left, I called Toula, left a message, emailed and texted her for any special instructions on how she would like us to leave her house. NO response. We stripped the sheets and put them in the laundry room, started the dishwasher and wiped down counters and straightened things up. After 7 days of no response, as to when we would receive our deposit back, we finally heard from the insurance company. Toula had filed a claim regarding the sofa bed. Apparently, our guest had put the bed back in wrong? I still don't understand this, but Toula said she had to call someone to help her get it out. She filed a $75 claim and later that week we received our full deposit. The insurance paid the claim. She was difficult and not willing to speak with us. Stay at your own risk.

Owner's Response: Mark's review isn't based on fact: The house is my personal residence and is a 3/brm 2 1/2 bath as listed. The house is thoroughly cleaned. The 2nd guest bedroom has a full size sofa bed. The sofa bed has a mattress & on top of the mattress I use an air mattress for extra comfort for guests. The air mattress is on top of the mattress & not on the floor as Mark has indicated. However, Mark or his guest took it upon themselves to place the air mattress on the floor & folded the bed incorrectly back into the sofa causing it to jam. I tried to unjam the bed for sometime, however, unsuccessfully, where I needed to call someone to help me. Mark never called or emailed or text me before he left, if he had, I certainly would have responded. On the contrary, I have to disagree with Mark, I'm very easy to deal with & highly responsive. I find these statements a little unusual. The only contact we had to my recollection was his email to me re. the $75 insurance claim re. the jammed bed, which I responded w/ a full explanation. Mark wasn't treated any differently than other guests. As the listing indicates, I charge a cleaning deposit, security deposit & Insurance. Guests usually get their full deposit returned, as Mark did. Mark's questionable review is highly disingenuous.

Great location and wonderful views!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on our vacation and staying in this lovely home was a bonus! The home has a great set up and is very comfortable. The views from the deck were spectacular and we couldn't have been more pleased with the location. The property is close to BART & the Larkspur ferry to get into the city. The drive to the Golden Gate was only about 30 minutes and getting to the wine country was very easy. The little downtown area had great places to eat and do a little shopping. We would definitely rent this property again.

This getaway was perfect for our needs for a group to attend my granddaughter's graduation from Berkeley. The views were wonderful and the house beautiful. I would hesitate having toddlers and any children under 7 or 8 - only because the house has many beautiful things that I would not want destroyed if I were either the owner or the renter. I would certainly return in the future. The town and restaurants are great. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home!
