Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your wonderful apartment with us! It really made us feel like having a home in San Francisco. We appreciate all the gathered information you left here, in order to get to know the neighborhood and the rest of the city. Of course, the view in the bedroom is stunning and impressive. Our little family had a great time in San Francisco. Thanks again.

One star just to get your attention, please read carefully if you are considering staying here

  • 1 of 5
First of all this is not a "one star" review. I did that so that it would grab your attention so you would read this. This place is as advertised by the listing and the other reviews except I disagree that it truly "sleeps six." The listing is actually for two different properties if you haven't figured that out. We stayed in #3 which is the one on the top floor. The deck is off of the bedroom and the views are as amazing as you might imagine. Another review referred to the dated furniture and furnishings and that is true. This is not a newly remodeled, five star hotel resort. The furniture was comfy and the kitchen and bath were adequate. The TV in the living room is never and plenty big. We stayed here with our 12 and 7 year old and their godparents. We parked the car the first day and never moved it. We got a MUNI pass and used public transportation exclusively. It is approximately half a block to the nearest bus stop. From there you can get down to Market Street and go anywhere in the city with no problem. The neighborhood was extremely peaceful.
What I wanted to draw your attention to was the sleeping accommodations. For our stay and our kids it was great. They slept on what the owner calls a futon. It was a foldable mat that is stored in a closet and we brought it out for the kids to sleep on. For them it was fine but I was surprised not to find a futon. Before writing this review I emailed the owner to suggest that she amend her description because in my opinion the mat would be insufficient for an adult. The description says it sleeps six and if we had shown up with six adults, two of them would have been very disappointed that they had to sleep on the mat. The owner responded to me that she had "lived in Japan and that is what they call a futon in Japan, it was bought in Japantown." I replied that most of the population hasn't lived in Japan and would have a different expectation for what a futon was. She was a bit confrontational in her tone. If you read a couple of other reviews that she replied to you may see that. We also had to buy more toilet paper so plan ahead.
If you are traveling with kids or only four people then this place was great. If you have six people then beware of the sleeping mat for guests #5 and 6. I expect her to respond to this and flame me for writing what I wrote or try to explain but this review is for other travelers and not for the owner. Knowing what you are paying for ahead of time is critical when traveling.

Owner's Response: I do have two apartments at this location and when this guest called me, I explained that the other apartment was a more suitable space for six persons because it is slightly larger and has a futon couch, rather than a traditional futon, which is the additional sleeping surface in the apartment in which he resided. He was very insistent about wanting the upper apartment and said they would be fine with the slightly smaller space and the amenities as described. Therefore, I am somewhat mystified by this review.

Great apt. with wonderful views.

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this apt. We were in town for the birth of our first grandchild and wanted a space near them. This apt. is in a quiet neighborhood with well kept homes. The apt. is older but very spacious. We had a great stay here and enjoyed sitting on the deck with beautiful views of the distant ocean and city. The apt. was very clean and well maintained. Parking was fairly easy in the area. The owner responded to us very promptly if we had questions. We spent most of our time in Cole Valley where there are many good restaurants and bakeries.
I would recommend this space.

Beautiful location in quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5
Just spent 6 nights at this lovely apartment. Amazing view in a roomy, quiet space. Plenty of room in kitchen and dining area, living room and master bedroom. Only one bathroom could be a minor quibble but it was not a problem for our party of 4 adults. Great neighborhood setting with lots of interesting, affordable restaurants within walking distance in Cole Valley, Haight, and Castro areas. It is a hike back up hill but, if you're not up to that, a cab will set you back only about $6 (and there are lots of public transportation.) Having spent many nights in hotels in financial district, union square, and fishermens wharf area, this experience was a welcome change that we hope to repeat.

Relax & Soak in the View

Relax & Soak in the View

We loved watching how the "stunning view" changed throughout the day - from clouds creeping all about the city to the evening lights sparkling across to the Berkeley and Oakland hills. The spacious home has very comfortable beds. It is in a nice, friendly, and quiet neighbourhood. There are wonderful restaurants and excellent grocery stores within walking distance. We got quite a workout walking to the neighbourhood park and back from the Castro and Mission districts. It is silly to try and find parking in the Mission. It's a short drive to Golden Gate Park, the beach, and the Legion of Honor.
Although there are a few toys and room for children to play (we had a 2 year old and a crawling baby visit during our stay) you need to keep watch due to the staircase.

Charming, Great Place for a Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5
This is an incredible house to stay in during your vacation in San Francisco. The rooms are large, homey and tastefully decorated. The house is in a lovely neighborhood with many unique Victorian style homes but also some
very modern homes. There are two parks within easy walking distance and both have fantastic views after a bit of climbing but that is what San Francisco is all about.
The kitchen is fully equipped so my husband cooked several meals during our stay but we also ordered from a close by deli. We relaxed with our family for just about every meal in the dinning room.
We also spent lots of time relaxing and soaking in the view of the city and the distant Bay on the spacious porch. We could watch cargo ships coming and going.
We were celebrating a momentous family event; our first visit to see our four month old grandson. We can't wait to return.

Good location, good view, but...

  • 2 of 5
The apartment is in an area that was very convenient for us and was perfectly adequate. The apartment was certainly spacious and beds were comfortable. However, we have stayed in other apartments in the area that were quieter, had more amenities and better furniture, and were a better price. The kitchen cabinets had food from previous guests, there was only half a roll of toilet paper, tiny soaps, no shampoo or body lotion. When anyone waled upstairs, you heard it!! For the price, we expected much more.

Owner's Response: These guests arrived at the apartment four hours before check-in time. We are fine with guests dropping off luggage early, but cleaning was still taking place. In our rush to give them access to the bedrooms and the bathroom, we apparently forgot to replenish the toilet paper. However, I am puzzled that given this is a self-service apartment, not a hotel, they expected shampoo and body lotion. And the soaps that they referred to as "tiny" are the larger of the two hotel soaps available in bulk....more than adequate for the three days they stayed with us.

The staples we intentionally leave in the kitchen are appreciated by our guests, so they don't have to buy spices, sugar, coffee, tea, etc. We never leave perishables!

The furniture??? Look at the pictures and judge for yourself.....a leather couch, a custom upholstered wing chair, hardwood dining table, comfortable beds.....I wonder what they expected.

It is possible they heard a waling from upstairs......my neighbors' parents were staying there visiting their son, daughter-in-law, and their newborn. The baby did not stay in the apartment, but I am sure he came to visit, and in San Francisco apartments with hardwood floors, you sometimes will hear noise from others. I know the baby slept in his own bed next door, so any noise would have been during waking hours.

Please read all the other reviews which give us a five star rating. We work very hard to make this a wonderful "home away from home" for our guests, and the overwhelming majority love this apartment!
