Interaction with Guests
I try to greet my guest and find out why they are visiting and that they are interested in. Happy to make suggestions about the neighborhood!
EVERYTHING! restaurants! bars! stores! all within walking distance. I rarely leave my neighborhood.
ABSOLUTELY. my location is in the middle of the city. multiple trains and buses run 1/4 of a block from my front steps. I am 3 blocks form the BART station as well.
Generally, I am pretty laid back. I want my guests to feel comfortable, as if they are staying with a friend. Respectful and responsible adults only. This is a non smoking environment.
No additional guests unless this has been prearranged. This includes entertaining friends in the space.
Julie's apartment was great, just as advertised. The room was clean and fresh, and the apartment is on a quiet street a block away from easy public transport. Julie was a wonderful hostess, meeting me with the keys upon arrival and even sharing her beer, wine, and incredible record collection. I had a wonderful stay and would recommend it!
Julie is awesome! She is super welcoming and her place is in a unbeatable location. If you want to know anything about the music scene in San Fransisco, she has the (email hidden)d a killer record collection to boot.
Charming apartment in a great location. Wholefood is right NeXT door. Whats not to like. Host is friendly and informative.
It was my great pleasure to have stayed with Julie. Hands down my most enjoyable airbnb stay to date! I loved San Francisco but staying with Julie just made it that bit more memorable and special. Julie is a fantastic host - very friendly and approachable, laid back and generous in opening up her home to her guests. She also has a ton of knowledge on SF and was more than willing to offer tips and recommendations. While I was in and out of the apartment a lot it was just the "home base" I needed. The apartment was just as I expected, only a little more charming ;) Communication with Julie was clear and easy. I would definitely come back and stay with Julie in future.
Julie was an awesome host, and made me feel totally welcome in SF. She was friendly, accommodating, and gave me some awesome suggestions of what to see and explore around town. The place itself was clean and the room was very comfortable to stay in. Also, the location was fantastic with a variety of nearby restaurants to check out, Whole Foods within a block, and all of the Muni lines right nearby.
Julie was a fabulous host. She replied quickly to messages & checked in with me before I arrived. She made me feel very comfortable & welcome. She also made lots of great recommendations for food, sights & going out. My time in SF was definitely better for staying with Julie (& it was already great!). Hanging out with Coco made me miss my cats a little less :) The room is on the smaller size but is comfortable & even with 2 of us it was enough. The bathroom was clean & comes with communal supplies. There's also a nice lounge & outdoor area. The location is fabulous - in a quieter street but with all you could want a short walk; bus; train; muni or uber ride away! I stayed downtown earlier in my trip & really recommend staying in this area. I thoroughly recommend staying at Julie's - it's a great place & she's a really lovely person. Thanks for having me Julie!
Julie was the perfect host and her apartment was great. I highly recommend staying at Julie's - my time in SF was so much better for it. Please see my other review for more details (I stayed twice).
