Sunny Space!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was just great – lovely, clean, open and bright! The porch was inviting and we braved the chill to sit out there
a couple times – never made it to the downstairs deck, but it looks relaxing.

The location is fabulous, so near to food shopping, restaurants and
transportation, without being too hectic.

Many interesting neighborhoods and tourist spots are within walking distance, especially if you like to walk! Except for one day
when we rented a car to go to the vineyards, we felt no need for our own wheels.

Perfect apartment in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5
Lovely well appointed apartment. Very clean with everything you could possible want to make your stay perfect. The apartment is very easy to get to from the airport and is within 5 mins walk from transport links taking you across the city. There are 2 convenient supermarkets nearby and the area is safe. Steve was very easy to deal with, everything is clear and straightforward and he was very welcoming. A much better option in my opinion than staying in a hotel downtown. San Francisco is a great place for a holiday with cheap transport, restaurants galore and great places to visit. We were extremely sorry to leave. Thank you Steve - we had a fantastic holiday.

We stayed at Steve's apartment from 7-13th July. Firstly I would like to say the apartment is immaculate. Plenty of clean towels and fresh bedding. It was the perfect size for our party of four. All the facilities are great and we made use of the on site washer/dryer. There is on site wifi that enabled us in locating famous landmarks and general information on the San Francisco area. The apartment is in a great location and the public transport is all within walking distance. I would advise anyone visiting to purchase a go San Francisco card as this saves you money on the public transport plus you get to see some of the sites with the card for a good price.

The apartment is a 2 minute walk to a big Safeway and Whole Foods where you can pick up all you essentials.

Steve the apartment owner is absolutely brilliant it was a joy to meet such a nice guy, having never booked anything like this before he set my mind at ease from the point of booking up until we checked out. He did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable even replacing the broken fridge within 24hrs. :-)

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone it's great value for money and all you could want for a comfortable place to stay in a fabulous city. Next time we go we will definitely be staying here!!

Leave your heart in San Francisco

Beautiful Sun lit apartment in a fabulous safe area around the corner from the famous Dolores park which boasts an amazing view of the San Francisco skyline. Two very spacious bedrooms, the back bedroom has french doors that open onto a deck, perfect for a drink and watching the sun set. With an abundance of cafés in the neighborhood and a wholefoods supermarket around the corner, this apartment is a gem. Very spacious, clean and full of old San Francisco charm....A perfect vacation to remember.

The Perfect Apartment in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
We were so fortunate to find this gem in San Francisco. The four of us (two couples) travel frequently together and we have experienced the good and bad of vacation rentals but this sunny San Francisco apartment exceeded all expectations and for a great price to top it all off. The apartment is open, bright and impeccably clean. The two spacious bedrooms make it ideally suited for two couples. Public transportation is just down the street, including the subway and bus lines. The neighborhood is great as well. Whole Foods and Safeway are just around the corner and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes in the area as well. This is a wonderful central location. Steve is gracious and made sure we were very comfortable. I highly recommend this apartment.

Great spot.

  • 3 of 5
The apartment was extremely bright, clean, and comfortable, and Steve was a pleasure to deal with.
There is one aspect that renters need to understand. There is a Whole Foods supermarket just across from the front of the unit. 6 days a week, there is an incredible amount of noise from Whole Foods, starting at before 630 AM, which affects the front bedroom in a big way.
The delivery entrance is exactly opposite. They bring out huge trash bins for collection at 6-630AM, they get collected, and then the supermarket deliveries begin at around 645-7 AM. This was every day except for Sunday, when this started at 8AM.
There was no sleep to be had in the front bedroom after 6AM each weekday. There just wasn't.
We are quite early risers, so most days this wasn't a problem. But not having the option to sleep later was a problem on a few of our more 'delicate feeling' days. And trust; sleeping past 630-7 simply was not an option in the front bedroom.
The back bedroom was very quiet, and there wasn't a problem there.
I'm a very experienced VRBO'er; I've stayed in VRBO flats all over America. I don't review poorly, and I always bring any concerns of mine directly to the owner, rather than give a bad review. But as nice as Steve is, there isn't anything he can do about the situation with Whole Foods, so I feel a duty to warn here.
If you're an early riser, as we mostly are, you will not have a problem. If you want to sleep in, at least in the front bedroom, than a big problem you will have.
Sorry, Steve. I had to say this.
