Recent San Francisco reviews

  • 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."

  • Lovely apartment in quiet neighbourhood near beach and park

    "We loved staying in this apartment. The actual accommodation was very comfortable with everything we needed. The garden was beautiful, although we didn't spent much time in it. The neighbourhood was quiet, but was only a short walk to local shops and restaurants. Charmaine and Robert were the perfect hosts - helpful without getting in our way. A few tips: read the visitors book as there is lots of info in it (we only looked at it just before we left); get a MUNI pass on your phone if you are planning to use the bus a lot - it takes a while to get into the centre but there are a few good routes."

  • Better than the Photos

    "If possible, Shaun and Jan's condo is better in person than shown in the photos. My wife and I spent the entire month of July 2016 in this great place and we couldn't have been happier with our accommodations and the helpful information provided by the owners. The apartment is beautiful and comfortable. Unlike many places in which we have stayed, the kitchen is very well appointed with everything you'll need to cook at home (assuming you're not inclined to sample all the conveniently located restaurants) . We spent many afternoons and evenings on one of the two large decks watching all of the action on the bay. The location is great. We walked most places we wanted to go. We loved the quiet neighborhood. There is even a concierge on duty 24/7, who received our weekly mail forwarding package and called us upon receipt. We look forward to our next extended San Francisco stay in this special place."
