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."

  • Absolute gem, highly recommended!

    "The house was even better than we expected. It was stylishly decorated, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable, and we had plenty of room for our 4 kids. Our youngest appreciated especially the toys available, which were a nice bonus. The trampoline in the backyard kept our older kids entertained for lond periods of time. The house had a parking spot on the street, which was large enough for our 8 person car (Ford Explorer I think, similar size than Yukon xl). The location of the house was great, the street is one of the nicest in the area. There is a beach nearby ( about 5-10min walk), a small grocery store with a good selection and several restaurants. I appreciated most the Land's End nearby as there was a good trail for running - with great views toward the Golden Gate. I recommend the house highly and would definitely stay there another time - unfortunately not likely as SF is far away from Finland."

  • Our new vacation home when we visit my son!

    "We just had the easiest, most pleasurable vacation week in San Fran while staying in this comfortable, huge, bright and airy front to back apartment. We were instantly comfortable in this, our very first VRBO. The owner was so easy to communicate with and work with. He went out of his way to make the timing and everything work for our comfort.each of the two bedrooms had very comfy mattresses. The kitchen was well equipped. Even the cute yard had a charcoal grille which added to the enjoyment. The location was convenient, safe, quiet and quite lovely, all adding to how easy it was to feel instantly comfortable. All of us agreed that we couldn't have found a better place for our Christmas week vacation."

  • Great views and Stay at the top of Potrero HIll.....

    "“We stayed here for 9 days October till November 5th,2016, the apartment was clean & comfortable and is in a nice neighborhood for walking around. Great Views and Very quiet area, the 19 Bus is near by to go to the city and every area you wish to see in San Fran. Also we found another great seafood restaurant "Skool" the Bottom of De Haro and Alameda try it if you have a chance., the 19 Bus takes you there , it runs every 20 mns, in the evening too. Amazing hosts, and apartment I would suggest to anyone visiting the Bay area. Place to stay at SF.... I hope to go back someday ...and Stay there...Stunning sunsets from the apartment. We enjoyed coming home here after each day after exploring the city."
