Nice quiet place right in the city

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here during the Dreamforce conference and was very happy to be a 10-15 minute Uber ride from the Conference, but away from the chaos. The apartment was very spacious and bed was comfortable. Wouldn't recommend for anyone who has trouble navigating stairs due to the third floor location, but that wasn't an issue at all for me.

Great location with view of city

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults was very comfortable in the apartment. The owner was very easy to communicate with both before and during our stay. The apartment has a large living/dining room with a balcony, functional kitchen, steeply angled ceilings in the hallway, and a back room that serves as a second bedroom. We enjoyed sitting outside every morning and late afternoon. We never lacked for hot water in the shower. The kitchen is stocked with all you might need to cook in but with so many fabulous restaurants why would you. Try Sweet Maple for breakfast, Sweet Lime and Burma Superstar for dinner. In the Union Square area check out the Pagen Idol for yummy cocktails. Overall Christopher's apartment made for a nice respite after long days of walking the city. We appreciated the little extras—Hotel size toiletries in the bathroom, extra coffee pods, plenty of towels, and a nice casserole dish. Thanks to our friendly host for a memorable stay.

Peaceful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The premises are located in a peaceful neighborhood which is not far from neighborhood conveniences a short walk away. The owner clearly has a lot of experience hosting guests, as everything we needed was available and there was no need to contact him even once. The apartment is an attic that has a lot of room for our 5 people, even considering the angled walls that protrude into the space. You do have to watch your head sometimes! The small terrace in back overlooks part of the city and there are even stairs to the very small backyard which we never went to. The carpeted stairs to the attic were a little tricky since they were winding and didn't provide very much space for your feet. Older travelers may need to be careful since the carpeting can make them slippery. The neighbors on the lower floors were very quiet to the point that I wasn't even sure anyone else was ever home as I didn't hear nor see them. Each apartment has a separate doorway once you enter the house. The toilet worked ok each time and didn't get blocked up, but it had the annoying habit of hardly ever flushing any toilet paper down the first time. Sometimes the paper, even if very little, would just float at the top for a few flushes which always worried us. Parking can be a challenge, but no different than most SF streets. Weekends were much easier. Internet and TV worked well.

There was little communication with the host before and during our stay. Little was needed and he was accommodating for a later checkout . The neighborhood and location were great. But next time we stay in an attic when temperatures are over 100 degrees outside as they were when we stayed there, we will surely regret it LOL! Not the owners fault, but all the fans in the world weren't going to make us comfortable in the attic when SF breaks temperature records! Going from the attic just to the next lower floor made a huge difference! It was cooler outside than in the apartment. But again, can't expect the owner to furnish air conditioning when it never gets that hot.

We would stay here again.

Nice place in a good area

  • 4 of 5

We thought this was a very good place for the money and location. It was basic inside, but everything was clean, easy, and had all items we needed for our stay. There were also many blow up beds so everyone had there own place to sleep. We only rented a car for one of the days we were there, and I was pleased that finding parking on the street was pretty easy. There were some nice areas we could walk to and it was easy to pick up an Uber to go anywhere in the city. Christopher was easy to reach with questions, especially by text, which I really like. There are quite a few stairs to get to the top. That didn't bother us, but if you have difficulty with stairs, this might not be your type of place.

Wonderful San Fran Victorian!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in SF...Christopher's place was the perfect location and was so spacious! The apartment had everything we needed and more. It was clean and well laid out for our family of four. The views off the back deck and the private garden were an added bonus. It was also within walking distance of many neighborhoods we enjoyed visiting...about 2-2.5 miles from the popular places. We would recommend Christopher's place to anyone looking to spend time in SF with the hopes of experiencing the city like a local. We would absolutely LOVE to stay here again when we get the chance to return. Many thanks again, Christopher, for sharing your place!!
