I had a very enjoyable stay at Samantha's lovely home in a quiet neighborhood about a 10-minute walk from the Balboa Park BART stop. Everything was well-prepared and comfortable and Sam couldn't have been a better host -- interesting, gracious, and helpful. Two great cats are bonus for "refline-ophiles." An excellent value at a place I highly recommend.
Samantha and Daniel were very welcoming and had a few good conversation and well as got some great tips on what to see and do. Samantha kindly picked me up from the BART station on arrival and gave me a brief overview of the neighbourhood. The house and room were nice, cosy and was welcoming. I had the bathroom just down the hall to myself which was a massive plus from the other listings I was looking at in this price range. It was great having cable in the room, and I felt free to go out and talk to the hosts. The cats were also really friendly which made it felt more like home. The neighbourhood was really quite and located close to the muni rail, Balboa Park and the BART was only a 10 minute walk away. Another plus is the variety of restaurants near the neighbourhood and the delivery options were great.
After clear directions it was an easy trip from airport and we were able to let ourselves in. Sam n Daniel were out as much as we were for the 4 days, but enough time to ask questions and share experiences. It's a little way out of the centre, but made for interesting bus ride to downtown. Thanks for our 1st air b n b experience. Really loved the bath after 3 weeks RV travelling!
Our stay with Samantha and Daniel has been really great. The house is in a quiet and safe area, we drive, so it was easy to get access to everywhere. The room was clean and quite spacious, loved the cable TV, we had our own bathroom, and it was right next to the bedroom. However maybe some guests would find two doors access to the guest room would be a problem. But we were okay with it. We loved Jasper and Tooty (two adorable cats of the house), especially Tooty would sleep with us at night. If you find it a problem with cats, just leave them outside the room, they won't cause any troubles. Daniel and Samantha have been very helpful with everything. We would love to recommend them to everyone who visit SF.
We have really enjoyed our stay at Sam's- their house is a little far from the city center, but with cheap uber rates in SF that was not really a problem (BART (SF metro) station is also just a few blocks away), so getting into the city was not a problem. Sam was really helpful and friendly, communication was easy and we loved her cats! The house is even more pretty than in the photos, spotless clean, and our own bathroom was defo a plus. It can get cold during the night, but Sam has kindly given us a heater and the duvet was super warm. Also, the house is just 15 min ride from the SF airport. Would gladly stay with Sam again!
