Adam and Joan were very personable and friendly. We also liked the size of the unit. Peter is sensitive / allergic to musty environments and while this IS San Francisco, we think the unit could use better management of the moisture. They are using interesting moisture capture bags which we also will be buying for our own use :) We had an interesting itinerary and Adam/Joan were VERY helpful and flexible which we appreciated tremendously!
This place is in a lovely neighborhood and offers complete privacy. Adam and Joan were very welcoming, both before we arrived and when we got there. The walk to public transportation would have been great, except that it was raining pretty heavily most of the time, making the walk seem long. It's about 6 blocks through a safe area. On the minus side,The unit could use some updating, especially the carpet and the bathroom. There is no cooktop or kitchen sink, so cooking is not really much of an option, except for microwaving. There was lots of good hot water in the bathroom.
I assisted in setting up this stay for two entrepreneurs that I am working for in Los Angeles. They came back with rave reviews! They had previously stayed in hotels while visiting and making sales calls in San Francisco, and are somewhat new to the Air B'n'B experience. I would say they are now converts due to the hospitality and comfort of this location and its hosts.
We felt the welcome very warm , despite the cold winds in San Francisco. Adam had kept a bottle of Californian wine to welcome us, and on top of that the apartment was as we had seen on the website, very comfortable, cosy and convenient.
The place was stocked with clean linen,warming quilts and clean towel. The toilet was very spotless, something that makes your stay WOW. Made for a wonderful stay for two nights. Next time we are planning a longer trip.
Absolutely lovely room. Very quiet neighborhood. It was an easy trip in to the city. Adam and Joan were very hospitable and made sure we were at ease with our amenities.
Would absolutely stay here again.
When we arrived at the apartment we were pleased to find a clean, comfortable, airy, self-contained space in a delightful area of town. Adam and Joan were great hosts - providing good breakfast foods and a lovely bottle of wine. The apartment is in a very quiet part of town, so if you are looking for a buzzing nightlife you need to look elsewhere. The nearest shops and restaurants are about ten minutes walk away, as is the Metro station. The train to town takes about ten or so minutes. The bed was the most comfortable we found on our trip - just sublime!
San Francisco Serenity was a wonderful stay! Parking was perfect, we had plenty of room and the extra bed/futon was quite comfortable. It seemed as if we were there by ourselves the entire weekend because we didn't hear any sounds around us. The neighborhood is a beautiful, peaceful and very lush green location. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the weekend. The bedroom & bathroom were very clean, neat and welcoming. - and the unexpected loaf of delicious sourdough bread was a special treat for our stay!
I run the bnb with my wife, Joan, who is a published author and teacher. I am a tech executive; I've worked in Silicon Valley and Tech for over 20 years. We love to hike, kayak, bike, walk, swim, cross country ski. ON vacation, we do all those things and also read, relax, and eat good food!
