  • Simply perfect!

    "I stayed here for approximately three months and could not have asked for a better experience! The location is amazing and the apartment had everything I could have possibly needed to make it feel like home! Cannot recommend enough."

  • Charming home in a great Lower Haight location!

    "This was perfect for us! We stayed 4 nights, with two teenage boys, no rental car. We took the BART and then an Uber from the airport, arriving late afternoon. The house was easy to find and the access directions that I received via email were good (tip: use the main entrance and not the stairs in the garden, especially if you have luggage :) Having separate rooms for the kids sure is better than them sharing a bed in a hotel- especially after a long day of "togetherness" on vacation. Super comfy beds. We were able to easily order food in when we wanted, and there were lots of cute breakfast stops within walking distance. Painted ladies are nearby, although Alamo Square park is under construction. We walked pretty much everywhere each morning (one day to Chinatown, one day to Castro/Golden Gate park, etc. and then uber'd home when we got tired. There is definitely traffic noise, but not so much that we couldn't sleep."

  • 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."

  • Home Away From Home

    "What can I say...all of the previous reviews are spot on. We went to San Fransisco for our son's 30th birthday. We were seven adults. BJ and Larry, our most gracious hosts, have set a high standard for all other VRBO hosts. This is our first experience with VRBO so we were unsure what to expect. Any concerns were immediately put to rest with the first emails. BJ was quite helpful and knowledgeable prior to our arrival answering all questions, even recommending a bakery for a birthday cake. Upon arrival we were greated with warmth and felt we were staying at a friends home. As mentioned previously they prepared a spread of snacks and presented a notebook of how to operate everything in the home, trolley routes and restaraunt recommendations which proved to be a great help. I am a bit of a germaphobe and this place is SPOTLESS. Location - Perfect...easy to get to most places you want to visit. The pictures of the place do not do it justice...and YES, the Golden Gate Bridge is really right there, even better than the photo shows. Thank you for a wonderful experience BJ and Larry"
