great location

  • 5 of 5

This property has a great location- only 2-3 blocks from the Golden Gate Park... plus only 2 blocks from all the public transit you need for your stay. Has a full kitchen which is great since we were traveling with our 6 month old baby. Everything is updated and modern- even has an office with internet! Besides the modern updates though it also has charm with the beautiful antique wood and furnishings. I would definately recommend- you just can not beat the price and the owner is very nice and helpful. Why pay more? This is not one of those properties where you get what you pay for- I think they should charge more really....... don't waste money on a high priced hotel room- stay with Micheal!

Very nice and unique property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Michael was very informative when he checked us in. He provided us with some really helpful parking tips and a map. The place was very unique and intimate. Very nice backyard patio. I would book again!

I was uncomfortable most of the time

  • 2 of 5

Where to begin?

We arrived and there was no one there to greet us. That's fine. But, I had never been to San Francisco before. And, I didn't know the rules of parking. If it had not been for a neighbor across the street, I would've been towed or given several tickets.

Next, be aware that you are not renting a home but the middle floor on a home. There is a family living underneath and the owners live above on the top floor. You will share an entrance with the owners with the only thing to separate you is a rice paper makeshift door. Now, you'll have your own kitchen and bathroom. But, I still had an eerie feeling. You will not be able to control the temperature. If you are hot natured as I am, you will have to open the windows. But, be aware. The owners are nocturnal. If you open the windows to allow cooler air to enter, you will smell their cooking as if they were cooking right outside their window. I've spent allot of time in the eastern block where the owners are from. So, I'm used to the smell of that food. But, it nauseated my wife. You will hear them banging and loud noises all through the night. Sometimes you would think that they are moving heavy furniture and dropped it. This happened every night we were there. I mean every night.

We have a toddler. This place is not kid friendly. I wouldn't recommend. Is place for families with small kids. In fact, unless you're a deep sleeper who isn't bothered by smells, or a supposed 70 degree controlled climate is ok for you, then you might like this. Just know that the owner of the home has the parking in front of the house. You have to find your own parking somewhere on the street. Just be aware.

That being said, the owner will also penalize you for using your credit card to pay according to VRBO standards for safe transactions. You will be charged an extra $45 upon your arrival. This breaks Home Away's policies. But, you'll either pay it or lose the money you've spent already to stay in this place.

Owner's Response: Hi There, you wore uncomfortable, because You should know the DMV parking rules not only for San Francisco, but for whole USA the same. You should reed very careful, the description, and be aware that you are renting whole middle floor, with common entree, not all the building with the garage. Otherwise you will pay, not $125 per night. You will pay $300 more per night. Thank you, Michael

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here and it worked out great for us. Micheal was a wonderful host. He had some great ideas for places to go and things to do. He was available if needed but not intrusive in any way. The area was very clean and had everything that you could need for your stay. We didn't use anything in the Kitchen or back yard but both were very nice. I would recommend this as a great place to stay.

Clean, neat, nice location, excellent kitchen, comfortable bed, walk to Golden Gate Park.

  • 5 of 5

It takes a while to get used to a shared entry, so in that way it's more like part of a house rather than a self-contained apartment. But it was a good value and close to our niece's house. The kitchen was great, and the vintage architectural details were charming. A lot of breakables made it a challenge for our small grandchildren; our hosts were kind to trust us!! A nice private exterior deck with cushioned seating was a nice feature. Parking is a little dicey, but no worse than elsewhere in SFO; we were usually able to park within a block. It's probably best for one couple than two because there is no door between the two main rooms. If it were just a couple you could sleep in one room (fabulous big bed) and have a nice big living area for relaxing and watching TV, etc. Mr. Mayakovsky was lovely and very very helpful.

Bottom line: you can't beat the location and the price

  • 4 of 5

I would give this place 4.5 stars if I had the option. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. We were three adults and a child and found the space to be adequate, could do four adults without a problem if you don't mind sharing the beds. The bed is super comfortable, but the pullout has a thin mattress, but serves as a couch during the day so I realize the options are limited.

Michael responded quickly to emails and his wife was kind and informative when we did the tour of the house. There is some noise from above but if you are used to apartment life then it is nothing out of the ordinary and you can't avoid it unless you want to fork out at least double to stay in such a prime location.

This was a good find and I am glad I was able to book it.
