  • Home away from home

    "Really appreciated the welcoming touches such as the banana bread, parking and the short walk to the beach and Trader Joe's. We were on a road trip from Vancouver and the apartment was a lovely home away from home after camping our way to Alameda. Very clean and comfortable; also, I tend to cook to avoid expensive restaurants when travelling with my kids, so I appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. I also felt the area was very safe which was important when travelling with pre-teen and teen girls. We were primarily visiting San Francisco and took the ferry each day which adds up when you are 5, if you are looking to keep down costs, take this into consideration. I felt it was worth it (places in San Fran were much more expensive) and I rather enjoyed the short ferry ride at the start and finish of our sightseeing days. Thank you so much, Betty! I would happily stay again and recommend to friends."

  • Wonderful stay in the Bay area!

    "We rented this property as a party of 12 people (two families and two couples) in July 2016. The house is very spacious and well-maintained, and fully met our expectations based upon the description. It is fully equipped to handle much larger parties than ours and is large enough to offer everyone a degree of privacy as well. It is situated in a quiet and nice neighborhood, with all necessary services nearby, and is only a few minutes’ drive from the Castro Valley BART station. We were met by Don at the beginning our stay, and he and Krista happily answered all our questions and provided lots of good advice and assistance during our stay. We really appreciated their commitment to their guests and the property! In summary, this is a very well-maintained property offered by a very friendly couple, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others!"

  • Comfortable, quiet, convenient and well equipped. Highly recommended.

    "San Francisco is quite expensive for any type of accommodation. Vivian's studio is modestly priced and it's 30-40 minutes by bus into the city. It's very conveniently located with multiple bus lines within a few minutes walk going to the city, the beach, south or north. Unless you have mobility issues, you won't need a car and you're probably better off without one. The neighborhood is great. It has a nice suburban feel without having to walk far for anything . There's a medium sized supermarket within 5 minutes walk plus plenty of smaller stores, cafes, restaurants, etc nearby. The wonderful Golden Gate park is only 10 minutes walk away. Vivian is a great host; she walked us through the studio showing us where everything was, talked us through her rules (which are very reasonable) and gave us good tips on public transport, cafes, etc. The studio was very clean and looks even nicer than the photos. The kitchen doesn't have an oven or stove. However, with the addition of some microwave safe cooking containers (I left one behind) I was able to cook pasta bolognese for dinner one night and beef tacos another. There is a small toaster oven, a toaster, coffee maker and a kettle (a necessity for making tea!). The fridge is a good size and there is a large water filtering jug which makes the water much nicer for drinking). The bathroom is clean and well appointed with various shampoos, lotions, medicines, etc available that you might need but may not be likely to carry on holidays. The Wi-Fi was reliable and fast - we had 3 phones and 2 tablets, sometimes all running at once and there were no problems. Vivian was happy to print some Alcatraz tour tickets for us that we'd bought online. The double bed is very comfortable and there are plenty of pillows, blankets, etc. We required 3 beds so Vivian provided a double air bed which I found surprisingly comfortable. The lounge folds out into a single bed however the hinge doesn't flatten out completely so there's a bit of a ridge in the middle - some may find this uncomfortable - if I had a choice, I'd use the airbed and leave the lounge upright. The neighborhood and the studio were very peaceful and quiet. There was a bit of noise from upstairs when Vivian's family were getting ready for the day or coming home but it was not intrusive in any way. The outside deck was being re-built while we were there - there was a little bit of noise at times from this but no inconvenience."

  • Beautiful home in a perfect location

    "We (2 adults, 2 kids under 10) stayed at Kathleen's place for 2 weeks in the summer and had a great time. The back garden patio is lovely and peaceful. Everything you need is in walking distance and it is very easy to get anywhere from nearby bus stops and the J train is only a few blocks further away. The local library branch is two doors down the street and out-of-towners can get a visitor's library card. Wonderful views if you walk a few blocks in any direction. Kathleen was very accommodating and welcoming and the rental is clean and well appointed."
