Overview

Daly City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom in a nicely remodeled 1900's Victorian Home.

Our 2-unit home is Victorian and was built in 1906 right after the earthquake. The lower unit is completely separate from the top unit. We’ve done extensive work on the home and land. It is a double sized lot so half of the land is landscaped with waterfall and pond with fish, over 15 varieties of Hawaiian and Polynesian plants and an expansive lawn and yard. It is a 2 unit home, we live above and Halekipa (the guest home) is on the first level. Our 1 bedroom unit features Bamboo wood floors, carpet in the bedroom, washer and dryer in unit, updated appliances, full size bed and pull out couch in living. It can comfortably fit 4. There are extra pillows, blankets, sheets and towels for you also. We also have a few things for children (boys and girls sleeping bags and a few games…still adding on to this. The home is equipped with High speed WIFI and Cable T.V. (Astound) as well. This property also dubs as the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center. You’ll notice a dance studio and library on the land as well. Once a week there are classes (dance) and once a month classes on cultural arts/crafts (weaving and lei making). Our home was awarded the Beautification award for South San Francisco in 2011 for the most beautiful Home in South San Francisco!

We are located in downtown South San Francisco (SSF) all restaurants are walking distance (Starbucks, Pete’s, Subway, multiple Chinese and Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese , Korean, Italian, Argentinian, American, Japanese and more). There are a few grocery, liquor and drug stores within a block. Some of our favorite restaurants: For Breakfast – Cable Car Café (nothing fancy, just quick good ole fashioned breakfast), For Lunch - La Morena (best al pastor nachos, tacos and plates), For Dinner - Izanami (great specials, brand new and nice atmosphere, some killer Ramen!). If you’ve never had See’s candy, the factory is down the street you might want to go in for samples ;-)

Everything you could possibly need is within 1 mile (drug stores, department stores, chain restaurants etc..) Most people stay at our place go site seeing. There is 1 car parking designated for our guest but if you don’t drive bus is within 1 block, Train (Cal. Train) is 4 blocks, Bart is 10 blocks away. All of these can take you somewhere interesting. Downtown San Francisco is about 10 minutes by car. Besides San Francisco you should make time to explore our coast especially downtown Pacifica and cruise along famous highway 1 to visit downtown Half Moon Bay!

About Kawika Alfiche & Kia`i Maurille

Our names are Kawika and Kia'i and we are the owners of this property and we currently live on the property. Here we also run both the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center and the Hawaiian Cultural Dance Group called Halau o Keikiali'i travelling world-wide preserving & perpetuating the rich Culture of Hawaii. Let the Spirit of Aloha welcome you to this perfect weekend getaway.

Kawika Alfiche & Kia`i Maurille purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Kawika Alfiche & Kia`i Maurille chose Daly City

We fell in love with this property when we first saw it. Because it is located on a double wide lot, we were amazed with the space and all the potential it offered. Over the years, we lovingly worked on landscaping by adding trees, plants, & foliage most of which are native to Hawaii. We continued by adding a pond & waterfall and worked on improving the dwellings including our dance studio located on back of the premises.

What makes this apartment unique

We love beautiful Victorians because they have so much character and this home was exactly what we were looking for when we made our move to the Peninsula. Our goal was to bring a piece of Hawaii to this land, to grow native plants, and have a place to continue our Cultural work. We love the fact that this area where our home is located is so convenient to shopping, restaurants, shopping malls, theaters, and all the specialty shops we could ever need....not to mention the abundance of parking which was refreshing moving here from the Big City of San Francisco.

Guestbook comments from the owner

During a recent visit to San Francisco we were fortunate to find this beautiful apartment.The property is lovely - lush with plants and trees, inside was decorated beautifully, Spacious and included everything we needed.We had easy access to our car which could be hard to find in the city. Within the walking distance surrounding the place we found a variety of restaurants and shops. The owners of were helpful and hospitable making us feel welcome. I will definitely stay here again.

Very Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I rented this place from April 15 to 24, 2015. The pictures and descriptions are very deceiving. We were very, very disappointed, it was dirty from the floors, the dishes in the cupboards, mold in the shower, dried food on the bedspread (which means the bedspread wasn't clean so does that mean the sheets weren't clean either???? ), the Bistro Set that they tell you to enjoy your morning coffee at was on the verge of collapsing, the back yard which is 11 pictures out of 23 was not inviting in any way, the list goes on. If this was a hotel we would have asked to be moved to another room. We cannot relate to any of the other renters reviews or the comments that other renters wrote in the guest book. We cannot believe they are referring to this place. The owners mention construction work in the description. We did NOT actually see any construction work/workers while we were there. Just a "Construction Site" so I guess that gives the owners an excuse to NOT maintain the yard which is a selling feature in the eyes of potential renters. We paid full price they didn't offer any discount because of the construction because they tell you it won't interfere with your stay. There was a rusty wheel barrow just outside the door that sat there in the same spot the entire time we were there. Like I said the list goes on. We rented this place because of the pictures and the reviews. We made a Formal Compliant with the VRBO.

Owner's Response: Well it's unfortunate that some people are just not happy in life, this i can tell by my initial interaction with this couple: sour faces and not even a "hello". I will say, I'm very very disappointed with the review - our very first 1 star review after usually receiving top stars and very postive comments from most all of our guests. I will respond below to their over-egzagerated criticism because I feel it is deceiving: I really wish this guest would have come to me direct or responded with anything when I initially asked if they were okay when they first arrived. Cleanliness: I would have remedied everything if they had mentioned things and was given a chance to see the areas they were addressing: "collapsing Bistro set, dried food, mold in the shower, dirty floors and dishes - sigh... they've painted such a horrific picture. We have a professional cleaner between every stay, I make it a point to check on the work before the tenants come and to leave a nice bottle of wine and candy (which they weren't even thankful for). Construction: it's obvious we are under construction, they were informed before they arrived. Unfortunately for them, they were there the during the excavation and concrete pouring, which is now finished. Yard: The land is under construction - they failed to mention that. We are improving upon the land so to enhance the stay for our guests. However, we still have professional gardening services that cuts grass/trees and keeps garden clean. We are in a drout so we do not use our sprinklers (hence the grass is not green at this time). Full Price: i would have definately considered some kind of discount if in fact there were these issues with their unit but they had nothing to say, even when i saw them face to face. I'm uploading current pictures to date, please consider when making your own decisions. To the guests that stayed in my home... consider ALWAYS staying in a hotel, i'm sure the corporation will cater to your every need.

Not too bad

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

1. Great location. Easy access to the airport and freeway; walking distance to downtown South San Francisco with tons of restaurants, shops, etc.

2. The place is just like what's shown in the picture. Clean, nice decor, and has all the essentials. Definitely better than hotel rooms.

3. Very friendly owner.

Cons:

1. My biggest issue is the noise. The construction workers started at around 7am every day. We were also waken up by the noise from upstairs in the middle of the night several times. We didn't get very good sleep during our stay.

2. Also related to sleep, the bed was a bit too soft.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the issue with the construction workers... the noisy part of the construction is finished for anyone reading the review.

Nice place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed during our trip to hawaii. we had a 2 night lay over and took time to visit with family on our way. This was a terrific find for us. it was convenient to the airport and our family. very nicely decorated. had everything we needed for our stay. The bath towels are the softest I have ever used! Was clean and comfortable. There was construction in the yard which made it a little hard to manuever in and out but we were told of this before we booked.

Great home base for exploring San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

I am preparing to relocate to the Bay Area and I used the apartment as a home base as I explored the surrounding neighborhoods. The place was clean, cozy, and convenient. Everything was well maintained and ready for me when I got there. I didn't have an opportunity to use the kitchen, but there's definitely everything you need there to prepare meals. I would definitely recommend this apartment to a friend.
