Great area, the apartment is exactly like its description. I stayed for a month and it was perfect. Dave make sure that I had everything I needed and his friend even helped when I locked myself out. Highly recommended.
Super convenient, comfortable, well appointed, hide-away. Amazing book collection, entertainment center and shower! The neighbors can be noisy on the weekends but that's all a part of the San Fran experience! STAY HERE!! It's a GEM!
Dave is the best host: he made us feel really comfortable, we were able to easily reach him any time we had a question and he was eager to help in every aspect during our stay at San Francisco. The neighbourhood was quiet and really close to the center even on foot. The place was amazing, had all the amenities we needed and more!
This is a lovely space and we were very happy with it. It's huge for the area, very attractive and well maintained. There were tons of great extras. Wonderful entertainment system, very comfortable bed. All in all it was an awesome space, far better than any hotel at a remotely comparable price. The host was friendly and efficient and helped out when we got in early and needed to extend for a day!
Dave was easy to communicate with throughout our trip. Checking in was as easy as opening a small code lock-box to get the keys to the building and loft, and check out was as easy and leaving that all behind. I honestly don't think you could ask for a better location if you're looking to explore SF for the first time - it truly is central. Heck, when we explored the Mission district we took a car to the bottom and just walked our way back to the loft - we could have done the same for pretty much every major area we wanted to see. The first night we arrived we decided that since we'd be there a full week we would want some of our usual creature comforts, a full grocery store is an easy walk away (~1 mile). The rest of the time we just pop'ed into the small corner store Nik's which was essentially across the street (it's wrong on google maps though, it's on the big main road south of the loft). The building was nice and quiet and the room was clean, comfortable, and plenty roomy for our uses. There's a decent diner right across the main road as well, but if you're looking for something a little nicer without being super pricey Cafe du Soleil is an easy walk and has great food to get your day started.
Anyhow, 10/10 - we'll definitely be staying with Dave again if the place is available next time we visit. Cheaper than a lot of the other listings in worse neighborhoods (this neighborhood felt nice and safe the whole time, as opposed to the tenderloin where most of the price-competitive listings are).
The place was perfect for our stay. Right in the heart of San Francisco, it makes seeing the city easy and convenient. Lots of local shops to keep busy and a great grocery store just down the street. Dave is a pleasure to deal with and is very reliable with communication. It was definitely a good base camp to explore from. Overall a great place
Dave was very quickly into responding to our solicitations, the place is very well located near to metro station, Market Street, Best Buy, pharmacies and just a few blocks far from downtown. Also the flat had everything to make our stay comfortable.
