Great location, very clean and spacious
This apartment was exactly as described. The location was great. You are right in the heart of things; in close proximity to restaurants, markets and shops. The kitchen, although we didn't really use it, was sparkling and the appliances were new and of quality. The ice dispenser was great and came in handy. Everything was clean and modern. The use of combo codes for the doors was easy and allowed us to be key free. The apartment is located on a hill, on the second floor, so make sure that you can walk up stairs.
Yau was a great host. I contacted him when we landed and he gave us directions to get there and get in. Then I called when we got in. He gave us recommendations and referred us to his guest book, which was full of good information.
It was hot in San Francisco when we got there and we were worried about the lack of AC in the apartment. Yau kind of joked that you don't need AC in SF, and we quickly found out why once we opened the windows. There is a nice cool breeze. The temperature was perfect.
We were 2 couples in the apartment. We took the double bed, while our friends took the queen. Both beds were very comfortable, although I did have to get use to sleeping against a wall. The living room is away from the bedrooms, which allowed the early risers to watch TV and putter without waking up the sleepers.
The apartment is very quiet. I only heard neighbours in the morning, while in the bathroom, with our window opened, and even then, it was only coughing.
The area is very safe and quite friendly. It is close to a lot. You can go to Washington Square in the morning to do tai chi. We always said we would, but just walked by them every morning on the way to someplace else. Maybe next time...
North Beach Pizza was OK. Pretty regular pizza. Mama's was good, although I don't think I would go alot because of the wait. We went to R&G Lounge, but didn't find it spicy enough for our taste. We took the Electric Bike Tour over the bridge. I recommend that to anyone.
Overall, our trip to SF was great and the apartment definitely contributed to that.
Payment was easy and our deposit was refunded the day after we got back home.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
