Charming, Cute, Clean Studio Garden Place

  • 4 of 5

So, when I booked, I really thought it was a one bedroom as the listing described, but it is a studio. The futon and the bed have no wall separating them, not even a half-wall. A little awkward for us and my husband's buddy sleeping in the same room, but we managed. That being said, it's a lovely Ikea-furnished unit. Very clean! The back yard garden was lovely and well-maintained. They did a great job of using the space both in and out of the unit.

Holly is very nice. She found a great lot for us to park our car in when we asked for suggestions. She let me know immediately when she found the pillows we left behind so we could come and get them. Thanks, again!!!

The place in a in a great location. It is just a few houses away from a cute dog park. Not too far from everything we wanted to do (the DeYoung, Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf, the Giant's game, etc.)

The bed was comfortable, but very low (I'm old and have hip bursitis). She has at least one kid. The noise didn't bother me (I love kids) as we were up and on the go most of the time, but you will hear running around above you (kind of bothered my husband's buddy who doesn't like kids). The kitchen was well-appointed, we didn't cook, but it looked like she has everything you need to do so.

Maybe I'm being petty, but it bugged me that she expects you to strip the beds and towels when she charges a $100 cleaning fee. Also, there is no dishwasher in the unit, but she expects all the dishes to be done before you leave.

Wonderful location & all of the above

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I visiting from the east coast really enjoyed our stay here. The house was very clean, stocked with extra blankets and it really felt like a lucky find. The small backyard was so beautiful to look out on and we spent most afternoons hanging in the park right on the street. The location was great, we felt safe and it was close to things we wanted to do in the Mission and other neighborhoods. There was a great kitchen that we didn't use with a nice big table as well. Holly was very sweet and let is check out late as out flight wasn't until late that night. That was a life savor not to have to carry our bags around town. I would suggest staying here for a relaxing, carefree stay.

brilliant location, cute flat

  • 5 of 5

bright and airy, holly's flat was perfect for my 8 year old daughter and i. on a quiet street that dead ends onto duboce park, the location cannot get any better. the best neighbourhood in the city! farmer's market every week, and great access to so much, including muni. the flat is comfortably furnished and very clean. only complaint is the extremely low water pressure in the shower... made showering a bit challenging! but otherwise, it was a great stay! holly and family were all super friendly and professional - very easy to rent from. hope to stay with you again, holly! thank you!

Great Location and Awesome Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Booking: The host of this space was very attentive and responded quickly to the reservation request and questions we had. I booked pretty last minute and I appreciated how fast the process was which helped ease the stress I had. Everything posted and all information about the space was accurate.

Location: The house is located close to public transportation (we used Uber the entire time so I cannot comment on public transportation). There is a nice park nearby as well. The location was close to the places of interest we had on our itinerary, as well. The actual apartment in the house was easily accessible as well.

Accommodations: The space is super modern, clean and inviting! There is a nice little backyard to use, comfortable furniture and it is updated throughout the apartment. The fixtures and appliances looked brand new. You can tell attention and detail went in to the planning of remodeling the apartment. There are extras of many things: soap, shampoo, conditioner, other toiletries, condiments, blankets, pillows, etc. It really made the place feel like home. Nothing was overlooked when preparing the apartment for guests! (Tips: If the TV is a little fuzzy, move the coax cable in the back of the TV a little to clear it up. There is at least one child who lives upstairs. If you are looking for absolute silence throughout your stay, this may not be the place for you. The delightful sounds of children playing and the pattering of footsteps were fine with us and only occurred during the day. There was no issue overnight.)

Host: The host is super nice and flexible. She made sure that we had her contact information if we needed anything or had any questions throughout our stay. We ran in to her one morning on our way to breakfast and had a great conversation about the area and the neighborhood.

Overall: I can't say enough things about our stay! We had no complaints and will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips to the city! This place comes highly recommended.

Sometimes little feet can be heard upstairs in the early morning 7-8am. We find grandparents, families, business people, early risers or heavy sleepers are ideal guests since they are less likely to be disturbed by the noise. If people are particularly sensitive and let us know in advance, we will make an extra effort to be quiet in the mornings.
