This is a really lovely apartment full of sunshine. We didn't cook much (with marvellous cafes and restaurants all around, just a few minutes walk away!) but the kitchen seemed very well equipped and we enjoyed beiing able to make our own leisurely breakfasts. The place is tastefully decorated, clean and cosy, with a heater for the sometimes brisk San Franciscan nights. The bed is good (yes, against the wall as another reviewer noted but we didn't find that a problem). Wardrobe and drawer space more than adequate for our needs. There is a shared laundry down in the garage which was clean and tidy.
The owners are lovely. Nathalie is very thoughtful, the booking process with her was straightforward and easily managed and she provided loads of helpful information (such as where to pick up a MUNI pass) even before we arrived.
We had a problem with the plumbing (due to bad luck, not poor maintenance). I wouldn't even mention it, except it is a good demonstration of how responsive the owners are. Greg was around promptly to check, called in a plumber and had it fixed in no time...and they kindly offered us compensation for any inconvenience. Problem solved!
The apartment is in a lovely old house with stairs so if carrying suitcases upstairs is an issue for you, you might want to ensure you have a taxi service that includes portering (it's worth it!).
The location is unbeatable. A lovely neighbourhood with wonderful eateries, cafes (with espresso...yeah!!) interesting bars (some with live music), great shopping (check Mashka for gorgeous locally made jewelry) and close enough to allow you to walk to many of the major sights of SF if you dare (very, very hilly) - otherwise buses to everywhere are just a few steps away.
We loved everything about this rental accommodation and won't hesitate to recommend it to others. Indeed, we can't wait to get back to San Francisco again ourselves and when we do this will be top of our list of places to stay.
Thanks again Nathalie & Greg!
