"My boyfriend and I stayed at this property for four nights during the month of September while on vacation. To start, booking the property was extremely organized and efficient with Rhonda responding immediately and supplying a multitude of useful information regarding her property. This included door codes, wifi, location, and other information regarding the surrounding area. Upon arriving, Rhonda was more than accomodating to our early arrival as she allowed us to store our bags and checkin a couple hours before the designated time. Her and her partner were extremely welcoming, friendly, and left us with a fantastic bottle of wine. We were initially skeptical in booking a property where the owners were close in proximity but Rhonda and her partner were extremely friendly and not overbearing in any capacity. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with and even gave us great suggestions/directions. The ground floor unit you will be staying in opens to a beautiful backyard and garden with your own separate entrance. On a sunny day the backyard is gorgeous - the pictures are a great representation of the property. Upon arrival, our initial impression was that the property was extremely clean and was surprisingly very comfortable despite the temperature being above 25 degrees Celsius and no AC. The appliances are new, the kitchen is stocked with anything you would need to prepare a meal, and the bed is extremely comfortable. There is a good amount of square-footage in the unit and does not feel cramped. The condo is located one block away from Market Street within the Castro area. This area is a safe and fun district for a young couple to enjoy nightlife and has extremely good access to the rest of the bay area through Transit. We encourage anyone staying at this property to simply hop on a tram or bus system to take you anywhere you need to go - there is direct routes to the Wharf, Chinatown, and other popular attractions. Despite the above positives there are a few small issues that any renter should be aware of. The decor is mildly out date so if you're sensitive to these things then maybe you would rethink. Despite this, it was never an issue for us. At times you can hear the individual on the second floor, but once again it was not too intrusive. Overall, we would highly recommend staying at this property for its absolutely amazing location, stocked kitchen, peaceful ambiance, and great owners. We will stay here again if we make it back!"
