I ♥ San Francisco
Overall my feelings are shared by the many people who have visited before me - ITS A GREAT PLACE! The location, the unit and the host where all perfect. If you want to explore "The Mission" this unit is safe and makes for a great home base. Its a six block walk to Bart which makes for a great way to get to know the area -- so I used both the 16 th and 24 th street stations as this unit is half way between.The washer and Dryrer get a star on there own!
Location, location! The apartment is perfectly located between the newly renovated Dolores Park and the Mission. Amazing restaurants and cafes are all outside the door. Traveling with a child and having two bedrooms worked well for us. There isn't a dining room or table, but why dine in when visiting the Mission? There were only three towels and three cups, so a few more of these would make the overall stay better. Luckily, there is an in house washer and dryer to keep the towels fresh. We had a really good experience.
The apartment is amazing! clean, specious, great location, beautiful view, great public transportation connection. The apartment is on the top floor, there is nobody above and therefore it is very quiet. The beds are supper comfortable. The communication with Steve was very good. We got the keys from Sylvia, Steve's partner. Everything worked perfectly. Sylvia was there waiting for us on time. What a wonderful stay in san Francisco. Highly recommended place.
Thanks a lot Steve and Sylvia, we had a wonderful time.
Steve's place was amazing. Being just 5 minutes away from cafes, shops and clubs it was the perfect place for us to stay. With the Muni and the Bart in walking distance, we could get downtown (and to the airport) without much trouble.
As for the house. The beds were comfortable, the amenities were great and it was spacious enough for us to be a relaxing place to come home to.
Overall a very enjoyable stay, and I'd definitely recommend anyone to stay here if they visit San Francisco.
Overall, an incredible experience! PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT location. The apartment was clean, airy, and fully functional. We spent almost all of our awake time out and about, as the weather was perfect, however had we wanted to relax in the apartment during the day it would be perfectly suited for that as well.
We even landed at SFO an hour early, which in turn putting us near the house an hour earlier than expected, and Steve's wonderful wife was able to meet us early to let us in.
If it weren't for obligations back home in New York I would have extended my stay in this incredible home.
Steve and his wife very helpful and responsive. The location of the apartment was superb for our purposes. We stayed with our young daughter and being near the revamped playground at Dolores Park is fantastic. It was also great having extra room for our daughter but steeps stairs are dangerous for young kids and we had to physically block off with chairs. The apartment is also sparsely and not very comfortably furnished. Completely fine if you're not going to spend a lot of time there, but just something to be aware of.
Great apartment in a great neighborhood! Nice 2-bedroom - very well equipped kitchen etc., so you'll have everything you need if you want to go to the amazing organic grocery store just two blocks away and stay in. There's even a washer/dryer, if you're staying longer. Steve was also great to deal with as a host, responding to emails quickly and when we got there a bit early, he even jumped in a cab and rushed across town to meet us.
I contacted Steve on behalf of my organization, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, to place one of our visiting artists in his apartment during her residency. She was thrilled to have a comfortable home to stay in for her and her husband. Steve was really quick in responding to my messages and very easy to work with. I would be happy to recommend his place to anyone staying in SF.
This apartment is perfect. It is in a really good location, in a calm street and few steps far from the lively Valencia Street. It is close to most of the interesting places in Mission (also the fanciest bars and restaurants) and the public transport to downtown is just some steps away. The apartment is big, sunny, calm, clean and new. All the amenities are in a really good condition: fast and great wifi, good heater system, all the kitchen stuff and cleaning tools you may need. Steve is a great host. We traveled with a wheel chair and Steve help us finding which public transport stations were the best ones. Moreover, we had problems with the bathtub and he fixed it really fast. We'd repeat the stay in this apartment without any doubt.
This apartment is brilliant! It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is well located for public transport and the Mission area is full of interest, conveniently located shops, lovely restaurants and coffee shops - plus a lot more. The booking/admin etc was very flexible and simple. The wifi worked immediately on both our laptops and Kindle - a great relief! It was close to a bookshop on 20th and Valencia where we bought our first map, and the nearest Zip Car hire site was only a couple of minutes away. We are not regular travellers, but we loved this apartment and had a very relaxed and comfortable two and a half weeks there. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Steve is a perfect guest, easy to deal with, friendly, clean and quiet. We would gladly welcome him back to our home anytime.
Nice people!! So clean, so quiet, and so easy!! Absolutely advisable.
Steve and his wife were the perfect couple to host. So clean, respectful, careful and generous (thank you for the wine!). They really know how to be in a place that is not theirs. Come back to Spain!
Steve was an exemplare guest and he and his girlfriend were actually the cleanest guest I ever had! It was a pleasure :)
