Busy Wonderful Trip Visiting San Francisco Area

  • 5 of 5

We had an eventful family trip and the flat was in a great location for visiting SF. Upon checking in, the owner left us coffee, tea, wine, sodas, and snacks - which was greatly appreciated after spending time on the plane. We had tickets to the SF Symphony and also went to a couple of Sonoma wineries. Overall, the flat was perfect for us - roomy, quiet, nice beds, and TV's in each bedroom. We were out and about most of our time in SF. We also spent time in Yosemite and came back to the house to regroup before heading home. We were very fortunate - the weather was perfect - sunny days! Our daughters enjoyed taking the ferry, China Town, and the happy yellow lab next door. Bonus: There are three bedrooms so our girls were happy to each have her own room!

exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This house made our christmas vacation so easy and enjoyable. The house was extremely clean, including the kitchen and bathrooms--plenty of clean towels and fresh bedding. The beds were very comfortable and TVs in each room! The kitchen is well organized, and the owners even left local snacks and treats for us. The decor of the home is sophisticated and welcoming, and the yard is absolutely stunning with a rose garden and beautiful landscaping. The hot tub was an added bonus. The house is within walking distance to amazing hiking trails, and we were able to walk from the house to the trails. My husband brought his mountain bike and was able to leave the house on his mountain bike and get to even more trails. Plus, the house is close to San Francisco, so it was easy getting to and from the city. And, there is a very cute yellow lab who lives nearby and welcomes you each time you come home. Overall, clean and beautiful home. Highly recommend.

NOT like the photos and a very bad smell!

  • 1 of 5

NOT like the photos, which look like they were taken a very long time ago! It was clean, but the reality was run down furniture and home. There was also a VERY bad smell throughout the home that we feel is likely mold as there is no working air system (only 2 manual fans). This caused us a lung reaction that made it hard to breathe. We experienced brown water out of the bath pipes and paint was peeling in many areas. This home was built in 1940. The owner agreed to refund 4 nights and has not followed through. She kept re-billing us even after we had paid. She did not disclose her last name. She never sent us a contract to sign, but keeps referring to it. At first she said she was "so sorry it didn't work out” and was “trying to navigate the refund”. Now she says, “We are abiding by the contract you signed” and "No reviews are necessary since we are slowly ending our VRBO/HOMEAWAY contract and will soon no longer be letting the place out!"

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for our wants and needs. We were supplied goodies from the owners that hit the spot when we arrived. The view was beautiful and the location was ideal. Beds were very comfortable and the whole house was clean. Shopping and restaurants were close by. We had a wonderful week because of our surroundings.

In so many ways, this rental property far exceeded our expectations. Not only were all the amenities "top notch" but also by staying at this location we were able to revisit the site of many happy memories from long ago. Thank you again.

Perfect Choice!

  • 5 of 5

We were thoroughly pleased with our stay in this lovely home, which actually has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and sleeps 6. There were fresh cut flowers, along with delicious snacks and beverages awaiting us when we arrived. The beds were super comfy, and we greatly enjoyed the view from the private patio. We were also grateful that Sally helped us with information regarding the fires in Yosemite and Tahoe before our trip even began. All in all, it was a wonderful week in Northern California, and we would definitely stay here again!
