Don't stay here! It is filthy and the area is not safe! Joseph didn't answer any of my questions!

  • 1 of 5

My husband and I were really looking forward to celebrating our 40th anniversary in San Francisco. We were so disappointed when we got to the studio apartment. First of all, the area was very unsafe! It was no place for two senior citizens! Once inside we found the place to be filthy! The furniture was so dusty you could write your name on it. The refrigerator was dirty inside and had other people's leftover food in it.The bathroom was the worst of all! There was filth and urine all around the toilet. The bathtub was scummy! There were five bars of partially used soap around it.The tub was not usable (even though it was listed as an amenity) because it would not hold water. We were also given just one washcloth. The two throw rugs in the bathroom were very dirty, and so was the floor. I had read a couple reviews where people complained that the place was dirty, but they said that Joseph took care of the problem. Joseph had not contacted us before our trip until I sent him an email about a week before.He did send an email back with just the basic needed information like the Wi-Fi password, how to get the keys, and the address of the place. He did not answer any of my questions about transportation nor did he reply to my concern about the place being dirty. I told him my husband had allergies and health problems,and I was really hoping that the place would be clean. The day we arrived and I saw how filthy it was, I contacted HomeAway. At first,on the phone they were great. They said they would contact Joseph and see if he would give us a refund and try to find another place for us to stay. That meant we would have to stay there the first night. Joseph was supposed to call us the next day and, he did not. I called HomeAway again. Again at first, they seemed sympathetic and said they would try to relocate us. This was until I had to tell the fourth person my story.That customer service person was rude and very degrading! Apparently it was his job to do and say anything to get us to shut up and drop it! He twisted my words and seemed not to care at all about the disgusting condition of this studio apartment! We were told that we would be contacted in 3 or 4 days about our complaint. We were never contacted! We have been home since September 16 and still have not been contacted! When we got home I submitted a complaint to HomeAway and they did not contact me. How horrible to treat two teachers that each taught over 40 years!

Excellent location in the Mission District

  • 4 of 5

Cute little basement apartment in the heart of the Mission. 15 minute walk to Castro area, easy walk to a lot of highlights in the area. So many fun restaurants to choose from in the area for any budget. I would suggest talking a walk down Mission or Valencia and see what is around before deciding where to eat.

We stayed in the basement apartment. Cozy and as advertised. That being said it does look like this basement was turned into apartments sometime during this buildings history. If you have ever lived in a basement apartment like we have you will be used to the highlights and faults to these kind of apartments. I would recommend this place due to the great location (assuming that is where you want to be), room has what you need for a short stay (except for a ice cube tray). Easy to find food and other attractions and easy to walk to public transportation depending on what your agenda is.

I booked this place based on the great reviews but was not impressed at all. It is a basement apt. and it smells like a basement. It was dusty, kitchen was not very clean, on a positive note, the couch was comfortable and the carpet was vacuumed. There were some good restaurants close by but be careful not to wander to far towards Mission St. (that area was a bit sketchy) If your expectations are not that high this is the place for you!

Joseph was responsive, kind, and welcoming from the moment I inquired about his place until the time I left. His place is in the perfect location. It's quite close to BART, and easy walking distance to most attractions in the metro SF area. Access to the place is simple and set up so that there's complete flexibility, something I found very helpful. His basement apartment is cozy and has all the amenities one would need....good wifi, fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances, cookware, dishes, and cutlery. A nice spacious bathroom with all one would need. HD TV with excellent cable, although with all that there is to do in the Bay Area, I doubt you would want to be stuck in front of the tv. I would highly recommend Joseph's place is you plan on visiting SF.
