Amazing Flat in Haight Ashbury
average rating of 5.0 based on 27 reviews

This flat truly is Amazing as advertised

  • 5 of 5

It's pretty rare to book a place and find that the reality is actually better than advertised pictures and description, but that's exactly the case with this flat. The pictures don't do justice to how large the space actually is - the living room is especially big, and there was more than enough space for my family of 4 adults. The flat is essentially an entire floor of a house (the owner and family live on the upper floors). Lots of extras are included in terms of kitchen essentials, spices, coffee, cereal etc, and the bathrooms included lots of toiletries as well. There are two full/queen sized beds and 1 twin day bed, all of which were very comfortable. There are so many other extras which make this flat feel like a true vacation home - a hot tub and ping-pong table, movies to watch on the large flat-screen TV, and some great books on San Francisco. Location-wise, this place was also a dream - lots of great walking nearby to interesting shops and markets, and the Golden Gate Park just across the street. The neighborhood felt very safe and was pretty quiet at night. For groceries we went to the Haight Ashbury market, just 2 blocks away - the prices are kind of ridiculously high (and I'm from DC, so I'm not immune to a high cost of living), but it was nice to have it around for emergencies. One of the best amenities of all, however, was the garage parking just below the flat - a truly wonderful thing, given that we would have been scrambling for street parking otherwise. In terms of parking in the city: we had a rental car and just drove everywhere and were able to find spots just fine in all cases. Ryan was very responsive to all communication and even allowed us to check in a few hours earlier. Instructions to access the flat and the parking were clear and easy to follow. We didn't meet the owners personally, but it was nice knowing they were just upstairs if we had any problems (we didn't). I would definitely stay here again - the owners have created a space that gives you a true San Francisco experience without gouging you on the nightly rate. Thanks, Ryan for truly amazing stay and for all the thoughtful touches that made this flat a true home away from home.

Places of interest that we visited: Muir Woods, Palace of Fine Arts, Cliff House (wonderful lunch at The Bistro), Conservatory of Flowers, Botanical Garden, Japanese Tea Garden, de Young Museum, Golden Gate Bridge

Very spacious and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Great property with plenty of room for our family of six. The apartment was very clean and well equipped with anything you could desire. Plenty of restaurants within the neighborhood and very convenient to Golden Gate Park. Next time in San Francisco we will definitely look to stay here again.

Spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in San Francisco in this apartment. It was well furnished and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook at home. We did a lot of walking around the area and public transport was also easily accessible from Haight St. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend highly recommend this apartment!

Wonderful place to stay in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I were planning our trip to San Francisco, we were deciding between staying in a hotel or renting a house. Since we had three younger adults with us, we decided to give Ryan's property a try. We can tell you that we absolutely made the right choice! This was a beautiful flat right across the street from the main Haight-Ashbury strip. It was also just a few blocks from the Golden Gate Park as well. We loved our stay and miss it already! The flat was clean and nicely decorated and the hot tub and ping pong table were a nicely added touch. Ryan was super friendly and did not intrude but he was there to answer any questions if needed. He even measured the garage for us so that we could make sure our SUV would fit with no problems. Did I mention it was right around the corner from the wonderful Haight Street Market? If we were to come back to San Francisco we would not hesitate to stay in Ryan's place again.

Feels like at home

  • 5 of 5

Amazing apartment! We really felt like at home. We never get to meet the owners but they left us all we need (and more!) .... coffee, sugar, all kind of species, etc. This is very useful for those whose stay is short like ours (just 3 nights).

Excellent location.

Thank you guys!
