Fabulous Pied-a-Terre near Hayes Valley

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this studio for a few months while traveling to SF for work. The studio is perfect. Every detail has been thought through. The studio is clean and stylishly furnished. There is a dishwasher and washer/dryer, small desk and living room area. The owner, Karthik, is fantastic. Very attentive and responsive. I highly recommend this studio for a weekend in the city, or if you are a regular visitor to SF and need a pied-a-terre.

Perfect for the Solo Traveler

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for one, capable for two, this little studio has everything you need for your city vacation. Lovely design and thoughtful amenities make this property stand out. Lots of natural light in this corner unit and fresh air from screened windows give a feeling of spaciousness, and the large bathroom, with deep tub and extra storage space complete the picture. The owner was very accommodating to my changing check-in schedule and also provided wine, sparkling water and chocolates upon my arrival, making me feel most welcome. Double bed with Beautyrest mattress was very comfortable, as was all seating throughout. Always felt safe in this secure building and secure elevator, both accessible with the provided key fob. Thank you Karthik (and Theresa!) for a most enjoyable stay.

Great place and a great host

  • 5 of 5

Karthik (the host) was very resourceful and helped me with my requests. The lock for the door broke down on a weekend day and Karthik was figuring out the fix for it within no time.

Coming to the place, even though it was small it was designed very well and addressed the guest's needs in a very elegant way. Towards the end I felt like that I should live in smaller places :) I would love to come back to this place again.

Clean, cozy, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights and this home checked off all of our boxes. Clean, quiet, well equipt. Conscientious owners that called to see if everything was ok. Parking was a short walk away. We will return!

Fantastic Place and host

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the place for two months and its indeed one of my favorite stay! The interior design is very tasteful and the apartment equipped with everything you need. Its a safe building with front door control and there's a philz cafe right on the ground floor, so i feel safe most of the time. Whats even better is that Karthik and Nate are really fantastic. They are really nice and helpful and I ended up being really good friends with them. I will highly recommend the place!

Fantastic Stay in S.F.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for a long-term rental in San Francisco. My wife and I had the opportunity to stay for a short while but if we need to come back for a summer for work or something, then we will definitely consider leasing this property again.

It is a nice studio with brand new amenities, lots of light, and well-kept. The location is a little iffy being near the Tenderloin, but the building is very secure, making it tough to gain unauthorized access.
