LOVELY GARDEN STUDIO WITH EASY ACCESS TO ALL SF ATTRACTIONS

Lone Mountain Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

We are so centrally located that you can literally be anywhere in San Francisco in less than 10 minutes. Catch a bus or taxi, drive a car, or better yet just walk. After a long day sightseeing come home to your cozy home-away-from home and have a great glass of California wine in the garden. Make dinner in your full kitchen, or go out to one of the countless wonderful restaurants in our beautiful city. Have breakfast in your kitchen, or in the main room watching the news, or better yet in the lovely morning sun in the garden. When it is time to sleep sink into your queen sized bed. Enjoy the free WiFI to keep connected while away and go home with all clean clothes after using the free washer and drier! Most of all, just enjoy being in the most beautiful city in America!!

We are world travelers who settled in San Francisco because it is where we always wanted to be. We love that we can be in the ocean one day and on the slopes the next. Living in a thriving city, but only minutes away from wilderness is a dream come true for us and we want to share it with you!

Kate Kern purchased this apartment in 2005

We chose this location because we are centrally located and can walk to work!!

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
This trip was very special for us, well planned and much looked forward to.

Although the flat is in a good location and provides everything needed for two people, I think four people would find it cramped.
The Wi-Fi signal was poor and only really worked if you sat in the kitchen.
The bed was very comfortable but we were not offered a change of towels or bed linen for our two week stay. Although the property is listed as having a washing machine and clothes drier, they are in fact in the passageway outside the studio and not solely for visitors use.

The biggest problem we had is when we turned up with a hire car, expecting ‘off street parking’ as listed, the 1st morning we went out to find two parking tickets for £70. Kate kept insisting that we park at the bottom of the hill but we tried and was never able to find a space. We compromised by parking in front of the garage because Kate’s daughter “would be very angry” if we took her space! The deal was that we would leave our car keys to allow Kate to access her garage. The night before we left a very curt text was sent saying “you have left your car without keys, this is not acceptable. We need to park when we get home from work. Please come home and move your car”
We were in the studio at the time, having arrived a few minutes earlier!

Departure time is 11am but we were sent a text which actually awakened us at 7.11am telling us to follow instructions in folder which were to strip the bed and place all the linens in the laundry basket (although tenants are charged for cleaning)

There are signs around the studio reminding customers what they should and should not do and Kate asked our permission to let her go in to get things out of our fridge stored for her grandson’s party.

There were 33 positive reviews on this property but we were disappointed, we did not feel like we had our own space. It did not live up to our expectations.
Owner's Response: I am extremely sorry that Joanne was disappointed with her stay. My aim is always to exceed the expectations of all of my guests here in our lovely city of San Francisco. I hope that all of the positive reviews of our guest apartment support that ongoing effort. Had a change in linen or towels been requested (regardless of length of stay), I would have gladly provided those. I personally explain the various city parking restrictions and provide a range of options in our neighborhood so that my guests can successfully navigate San Francisco’s beautiful (but dense) urban environment. Again, I greatly regret that Joanne did not fully enjoy her stay.

A wonderful place to experience San Francisco

Thanks once again to Kate and Denny for a great San Francisco experience. The studio apt. was great--comfy and spacious. After having been on the road for awhile, it was nice to walk to very good and convenient stores and cook some meals. The kitchen worked well for that. Parking was free and easy just down the street and we left our car there for three days. We could easily get everywhere by bus or by walking and Kate was very helpful in orienting us to the neighborhood. The neighborhood restaurants were also great and we started to feel like it was our neighborhood too. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay there again sometime!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It was very clean, had everything you would need, and was in a very nice location within the City. There is a City guide in the apartment, prepared by the Owner which had some great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. We would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Stay

We just returned from a fantastic 5 night stay here. Kate made our stay perfect. She is an absolute gem and it felt like we were staying with family. The condo was excellent--great location, well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer for your convenience, and an incredible price for a San Francisco vacation. We loved sitting in the garden with a glass of wine after a long day of sight seeing. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I'm ever in the area. I will also be telling all of our friends and family to stay here when they visit. You will not regret staying here on your San Francisco vacation. Thank you Kate for making our trip so wonderful!
Owner's Response: Thank you, Jessica! It was a pleasure having you stay with us!
