Not bad, but kind of false advertisement.

  • 3 of 5

(Really quick, before I explain the important stuff - Like other reviews, the instructions for check-in are not correct. There is no lockbox with a passcode - the owners leave the keys on the counter inside with the door unlocked for you. Not a big deal, but a little confusing at first.)

Moving on - This was a nice stay, but there are a couple of cons that are worth preparing for.

1) Their neighbors have a rooster. It crows every morning for a few hours. The first night, it was difficult to sleep through as we weren't expecting it. Every night after that, we wore earplugs and were fine. Bottom line: Bring earplugs!

2) The apartment has a bit of a musty smell. It's not terrible, but it was extremely noticeable when we walked in. I believe it may be coming from the bathroom (possibly the drain). We lit candles the entire time, and we also kept all of the windows open. This seemed to help a bit, but the smell was still there when we left.

3) The couch also needs a good cleaning. We noticed a kind of body odor smell when watching TV - upon further inspection, it was coming from the cushions and arm rests (this was the first day we arrived).

4) The view in the picture is accurate, but is at the end of a narrow path that is not very well kept. It looks like no one has used the patio furniture in quite some time. The apartment itself is a basement apartment, so there is no view from the unit itself.

5) This property is advertised as being "within 20 minutes" of San Francisco - but at best, you're looking at 30 to 40 on a good day. On average it took us around 45 minutes to get downtown. Not a major issue, but definitely an inaccurate description.

6) The owners should put some pictures in their frames! It was just a little strange seeing a bunch of picture frames with the stock photos in them around the apartment (the photos that simply showed "8.5 x 11 Photo Here", etc, no actual photo - haha!)

7) No dresser - just a closet full of a ton of towels/blankets.

The positives!

1) The bed is VERY comfortable. Best nights of sleep I've had in a while!

2) The price is great.

3) Millbrae doesn't have too much going on, but there are a few nice restaurants and "Cafe Roma" which I definitely recommend for a good cup 'o joe. Also, "Fiddler's Green" was an authentic Irish Pub with a great BBQ chicken!

4) Tons of toiletries! More than I could hope for. This was helpful!

So, not too bad, but honestly disappointing overall.

Directions and information about unit were not correct

  • 3 of 5

The directions for finding the apartment at the home were incorrect. The front door had the letter A, which was in the directions, but there was no lock box where we were instructed to retrieve the key. After wandering around the home's property , which felt very uncomfortable, and going through 2 gates, we noticed an open door down a set of stairs. We thought someone must be in there so we did not continue. No letter or lock box on the door. After calling the manager we were given the correct information, which turned out to be the basement apt with the door ajar. We were told the door would be open and the key on the plate on the counter, which it was. The Apt is a basement unit all windows facing the sidewalk and fence above the windows and the cement wall for stairs. The view is at the end of a narrow pathway and although nice there was not a view from inside the apartment.

The unit appeared to be newly finished and had everything we needed. It was very clean.

Wonderful Surprise Getaway Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment turned out to be exactly as advertised! Cozy, well furnished, with fun little touches that set it apart from any hotel stay I could have come up with. The perfect place for a surprise trip for my wife and I. The location turned out better than I had hoped, close to everything we came to see as well as San Francisco. We enjoyed breakfast outside on the patio with wonderful views of the bay and surrounding sights. The private entrance was very nice and secure. We enjoyed walking through their beautiful landscaping, and I even resisted my urge to pick some of the lovely fruit. I highly recommend this getaway apartment.
