Exhilarating experience

  • 5 of 5

Stay from 20 Jume to 9 July 2016 was an extraordinary experience at this lovely place. It is near to everything yet quiet and peaceful. Leslie and family, living at upper porion, showed affection and warmth and we felt comfort of our own home. It was indeed them a memorable stay. Flinch, their lovely dog, greeted us on arrival and became frequent visitor to express warmth. This studio is indeed a jewel in San Francisco, spacious, luxurious and comfortable. It has everything one needs. Bed is comfortable. Kitchen is fully equipped. Direct TV and Roku with facility of watching latest movies. Internet fast and reliable. My life partner and me enjoyed every moment of our stay and love to come back.

What a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Leslie and Todd were lovely hosts. So friendly, down-to-earth, and welcoming. The rental was perfect - very clean, modern, with a great layout. My daughter, husband, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We loved our visit to San Francisco so much, and having this great place where we could relax at the end of the day played a huge role in making our vacation extremely memorable and special. Thank you, Leslie and Todd!

Perfect apartment for a San Francisco visit.

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed a total of 5 nights at Leslie and Todd's apartment in Glen Park. Located 5 minutes walk from the local BART station - around 20 minutes from SFO and 10 minutes or so from Downtown San Francisco.

The apartment had everything you would need for a stay - the bonus being a full sized kitchen and private outdoor area to sit in. The bed was very comfortable, with a selection of pillows to choose from. And my brother said the sofa bed was firm but very comfortable as well. We loved that there were heaps of towels in the bathroom.

What made the place very homely was that the kitchen had lots of essentials to get you started and lots of lovely coffee. There were also lots of books so it felt like you were staying with friends! Two final touches, a lovely bottle of wine to welcome you and their very cute dog Finch!

We will definately be staying again.

a gem in the middle of San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, perfect place . Although it is called a studio apartment, it is so spacious it feels like a small home . It has its own sunny private garden ( in which we drank coffee and read the paper every morning or looked at one of the many books in the apt. about SF.) ,a full, well equipped kitchen, large bathroom with a good shower as well as a walk-in ,roomy closet with chests of drawers inside.

Other pluses, are the house;s location in central SF, near Bart, good restaurants and upscale as well as convenience stores, on a pretty, quiet, dead end street where parking was never a problem ( and, if you know SF like we do, such a street is kind of a miracle!) in a lovely part of town. The owners are delightful and helpful. They have also supplied the apartment with many more unexpected and useful items than any vacation place we have ever rented. We hope to return.

Perfect retreat in Glen Park

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental has everything that we needed. It was our third stay here and our favorite. Have stayed at two other locations in Glen Park before. The unit has a very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and all the other amenities that we would want. The property is very clean & well maintained. The location is 10 minute walk to Glen Park Bart station and several bus lines that we used to go throughout the city. Glen Park has an upscale grocery store, several excellent restaurants, coffee shops, bakery, banks, etc. The owners, who live on the property, are available if need be and responsive to any request. - Patty & Dave

Fantastic Den

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful apartment for our Honey Moon and had such a great time. Very confi, world class kitchen and pristine clean. The welcoming from the owners make you feel right at home. The location is just perfect, not too far, not too close to the noise. If you are looking for a cool place to stay in SFO, look no further, this one has it all...
