Clean & Wonderful Rental!

This is a VERY clean rental and the location is excellent. Kate, the owner, was easy to work with and we appreciated her ability to secure our short-notice reservation even though she was going to be out of town. The rental is on the small side, however, it is well-laid out and perfect for 2-3 people. It is decorated very nicely and has nice light coming through the windows where you can view birds in the trees and bushes outside. It looks down on a beautiful and private back patio (which we didn't use but it looked to be very nice). The kitchen is a good sized with a full refrigerator and stove which made it easy for cooking our meals. It does not have a coffee grinder which was difficult since we had brought coffee beans but fortunately we were able to borrow our daughters while we were there (we did, however, get a delicious cup of coffee the first morning at Blue Bottle Coffee which was not too far away). The rental does not have any spices (other than salt & pepper) so it would be a good idea to bring what you need while you are there. Also, there wasn't any bar soap or shower gel (there was liquid hand soap on the sink) so we did have to go out and buy some so we would recommend bringing your own soap for the shower. Parking was easy to find in front of the rental on the short street except for on Saturday night but we were able to park down on a different street not too far away so it really wasn't a problem (it is by far the best parking situation we have ever had when staying in San Francisco!). The rental was cold when we arrived on Friday night (which other people have commented about) but the electric fireplace works wonders and heated up the rental quite nicely. Overall, we had a wonderful time and we would definintely stay at this rental again!
Owner's Response: We allow our guests to park in our driveway, especially when we are away and yes, our neighborhood is fairly easy in terms of parking. Since the apartment is on the ground floor, it is often chilly in between guests, but as stated the electric fireplace does a nice job of heating it up quickly.
We do not supply used spices, but if a guest asks for some from us, we are happy to share. Most coffee houses will provide ground coffee, but adding a coffee grinder is a good idea. We will put one in the unit.
When we began renting out our apartment we did supply soap, but so many of guests brought their own, or liked a specific kind, we stopped supplying it and we certainly do not want to share any soap left behind by previous guests due to sanitary reasons.
