  • Adorable Private Getaway!

    "My boyfriend and I came to SF for a fun run at Golden Gate Park and were lucky enough to secure this adorable studio nearby. We came late at night and checking in was a breeze - all the instructions we were given were very easy to follow. The neighborhood was lovely, we felt comfortable walking around at all times of day or night. The studio was close to several restaurants, bars, shopping. It was the perfect area, especially if you're going to GGPark (walkable!). The studio itself was well maintained and very clean. The garden was a peaceful area to relax in, drink your morning coffee. Studio was very cozy and cute, perfect for 2 people. I didn't have a chance to meet the owners but that's okay because that means there were absolutely no problems! We will definitely be back!"

  • Excellent Choice!

    "We recently returned from our trip to San Francisco and we could not have been happier with the accommodation provided by Jay the owner. The location was perfect for us, during the day we would venture into the city to see the "touristy" sites as well as some of the lesser known things to do and see. At the end of the day we would return to a nice quiet, safe location and fall asleep to barely a sound from outdoors..perhaps the odd car on the street but the hustle and bustle of downtown is just far enough away to allow you to decompress after alot of walking. The apartment is in a very hip area of SF, the Mission District is only minutes away on foot, the Castro is the same only in the opposite direction. Delores Park is just up the hill (everything in SF is up a hill, so bring good comfortable shoes like runners or proper walking shoes), Delores Park was a nice area to chill out in the evening and it seems all the young people from the area gather there to drink wine, play frisbee and see the city from one of the best vantage points in the entire city. There is a market in the same building and we were able to pick up any provisions we needed during our stay. For a big grocery order there is a Whole Foods about a 5-10 minute walk away, and a Safeway about a 20 minute walk away or easily stopped at by the transit system. The transit stops are very handy to the apartment as well, the F train (or maybe the J train) stops just at the top of the hill from the apartment (maybe 3 minutes on foot). This train will take you directly downtown where you can easily grab another part of the transit system to go virtually anywhere you need to go. There is also the BART system that is about a 15 minute walk down along the Mission District that will take you quickly either downtown or to the airport. We did use Uber a few times until we became familiar with the transit systems then we only took trains, cable cars or the BART to go anywhere. The bus system also works very well, we took the bus into Haight & Ashbury which only took about 15 minutes. Jay keeps this apartment immaculate and it is decorated in a cool hip retro kind of way, very funky and fun to come back to. I wish we had more time to enjoy his upstairs patio. This is not a party place, it is in a nice upscale area and well looked after. Jay was a wonderful host and provided plenty of tips and advice for getting around the city. We would definitely return without hesitation."

  • Lovely and comfortable!

    "The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The apartment is very well decorated, a nice place to come home to! The sofas and bed were very comfortable. It was great to have a parking space too since we rented a car. The washer and dryer came in handy as well...we didn't have to pack so many clothes! The central location and close proximity to public transportation made it easy to get around the city! Great fast hot water in the shower too! We would stay there again!"

  • 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."
