Beautiful apartment and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a lovely extended stay at Steve's apartment! The apartment is beautiful, spotless, and well appointed. We felt at home for our 6 week stay. It is a 2 minute walk to a muni station, bus stops, the F-line, Whole Foods, and Safeway. We were able to get from the door to our work in the Civic Center area in <15 minutes. You can get pretty much anywhere in the city easily from the apartment.

Steve lives in the apartment above and was great to work with. Booking was quick and easy, communication was fluid and prompt, he quickly addressed any issues, and he was willing to meet with us early when our leaving plans changed. He is by far one of the best landlords I have worked with!

I had many friends in the city at the same time that told me horror stories of other apartments they were renting, which made us even more grateful to find such a wonderful home and renter! I highly recommend Steve's place and would book with him again!

Excelente... Estado, ubicación y amabilidad de su dueño

  • 5 of 5

Viajamos en diciembre, desde Argentina, para estar 5 días en San Francisco. Alquilamos el dpto de acuerdo a las fotos que publicaron y a los precios sugeridos. No, nos equivocamos. Tuvimos una experiencia fantástica. El departamento está en estado excelente, todo funciona muy bien. Fuimos cuatro personas y realmente es muy cómodo.

También debo destacar que su dueño es muy amable y aunque no sabía nuestro idioma se esmeraba por entendernos. Hice varias consultas por mail acerca del lugar y me respondía en forma inmediata. Recomiendo el lugar por todos los aspectos antes mencionados. Excelente persona Steve!!!

Fantastic apt in great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is great and fully equipped with everything that you will need for your stay and the host Steve is lovely. Only 2 of us stayed in it but there was lots of space for 4. The weather in sf was hotter than usual so the deck came in very handy. Location is also fantastic very near both the mission and castro. We had a great time in san francisco and the apt played its part in that, wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Wonderful apartment and a wonderful landlord

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment - great location - short distance to public transport. Central to SF, yet located in a quiet location. Steve is a wonderful landlord who is willing to give advice and guidance - we were 2 couples who lived in the apartment - it worked fine in every way. Very short distance to Supermarket "Whole Foods" where you can buy everything I need. Could have wish that there had been garden furniture in the small garden belonging to the apartments.

Will definitely stay there again when we come to SF next time

Beautiful apartment and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a fantastic place to stay when visiting San Fran, we consisted of two couple's in our 20's and this place was perfect. The flat was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and had all the amenities we could wish for (and more).

The location is perfect, close to the MUNI and on the F-line which takes you pretty much anywhere in SF. It is also just round the corner from two decent supermarkets, and all the bars/restaurants in Castro. Just a short walk to Mission Dolores Park which is a great place to enjoy the sun and catch some great views of the downtown skyline.

Steve, the landlord, was extremely helpful from the start with booking the apartment, to helping with public transport directions from the airport, and even allowing us some space to store our bags for our evening flight so we could make the most of our final day in the city.

I would stay here again and recommend this place to friends or family who were planning on visiting the city.
