Delighful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience. Although the apartment was called a studio, it was very spacious, with a charming garden. It was clean, well-decorated, well-maintained, with lots of closet and storage space. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked, and the shower worked well. There were lots of towels, and the deep tub was a bonus. The charming neighborhood of Glen Park, with several good restaurants (Le Petite Laurant was excellent, as were several of the breakfast places) is a short walk away. We also enjoyed a walk to scenic Glen Canyon Park. The only concern, if you have a car, is that parking is always a challenge in San Francisco, and this street, a dead-end, was difficult to navigate. However, there was parking on adjacent streets, even when we returned late in the evening. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We enthusiastically recommend this property, and would stay there again.

Excellent small apt. for a San Fransisco stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay in the Glen Park neighborhood of SF. It was an easy ride by bus into downtown and made exploring the inner city quite easy. The apt. is charming and comfortable and our hosts could not have been more helpful. We loved it and will definitely try and stay here again on any subsequent visits to the area

Lovely base for our stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean modern apartment with great facilities. Leslie was a great host and was available throughout our stay should we need her. Although not in the centre of the city, it was easy to get to all attractions using the local Bart/Muni and we chose this rather than staying in the city as we felt it was more home from home for our extended stay of 5 nights. Free on street parking too which is ideal although you don't need a car here as public transport is good. We bought San Francisco city passes which were great for seeing all the attractions and inc muni tickets for the duration of our stay. Thanks again Leslie.

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!
