Country Home is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this home during our daughter's wedding weekend. The house is beautiful, as was the property. The pool was a lot of fun with a beautiful rock slide and jacuzzi. The house came fully equipped with all the necessities you can imagine and then some. It's on a street that runs through Glen Ellen, making it convenient to local shopping and area events. We would definitely stay there again!

Very nice 2BR 1BA in Nob Hill

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice apartment with plenty of space for 4. Furnishings are minimal but certainly adequate. The pull-out sofa in the living room is of excellent quality - very comfortable, especially if you like a firm mattress. The view from each bedroom is excellent. Owner was very responsive to any questions or requests.

Only issue we had was that the internet connection was slow much of the time, and for a couple of days so slow as to be unusable. I had a Sprint hotspot which we used often instead of the wifi.

No issues with the cable car noise. We did bring a couple of sound machines, but not sure we really needed them.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in San Francisco for 7 days and had a blast. The apartment was perfect for us. It was in a great location and it was nice having the cable car coming right by. The property was clean and well-maintained and was as advertised. Having a washer & dryer was so convenient. Mike was very responsive to any texts/emails we sent him. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from March 19-26, 2016. We were very pleased with the apartment and would definitely stay here again. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated. We did not do much cooking but did use the coffee pot, toaster, washer and dryer, microwave, etc. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all slept great. Street noise could be a problem for some people. The cable car runs right by the bedroom and runs from 6:00 am to midnight. Even with the windows closed, the noise filters inside. Small fans as noisemakers were provided in each bedroom. It wasn't a problem for us, as we all use white noise apps on our phones, as well as the fans. If you prefer a very quiet night's rest, you will be in trouble.

The best feature is the cable car right in front of the apartment. Both Powell Hyde and Powell Mason lines are easily accessible. These lines take you either north to Fisherman's Wharf or south to Market Street. From those endpoints, San Francisco public transit can take you anywhere you wish to go. Using the public transit was easy, convenient and stress-free.

This apartment is at the top of a 12 unit (four story) apartment building. All the other residents and neighbors were quiet and considerate. Everyone we would meet on the stairwell was friendly and kind. This is a very safe apartment as the building exterior door has a sturdy lock, as well as your individual apartment. It is in a clean and safe area of San Francisco.

great older building that has been nicely renovated for a comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very easy access to cable cars out front of building. Transportation passes included are a great added bonus!

Excellent dining of many ethnic varieties just a 1/2 mile or less away, sometimes just a few hundred feet. We walked to many delicious destinations during the week.

Beds are reasonably comfortable, appt is generally very clean. The added bonus of a dishwasher and washer/dryer was appreciated.

If you are able to use the garage, make sure your car is VERY SMALL. I am originally from coast so I know when someone says small car they mean it! But for the rest of the country don't show up with a Ford Focus size...Must be toyota Yaris or smaller. I had no issues, and was so thankful for its availability.... but I could see someone else needing to know that small means MICRO small.

My Daughter and I rented this and had no issues feeling unsafe, even walking at night around the immediate area...its in a pretty good part of town.

Had a great time and if I need to rent a place again...I would definitely rent here.
