Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • A charming apartment in a secluded and serene neighborhood only 25 minutes from downtown San Francisco, Joan's accommodations were comfortable, complete, and spotlessly clean. I didn't get a chance to properly meet Joan but we did speak on the phone and she was happy and helpful. This was my first time using airbnb and I'm glad to report that it was even better than expected. Don't hesitate to trust Joan with your stay in the Bay Area!

  • Joan was a great hostess. Everything was impeccably clean and I enjoyed the relaxing decor which invited meditation. Very quiet room, overlooking wild greenery on a nearby hillside. Never a problem to use the (sparkling clean) shared bathroom. Filtered water a plus. Joan is cheerful and lives a healthy, energetic lifestyle. She is very busy all day and into the evening so I had the whole apartment to myself whenever I was in. Guest parking available a few yards outside the door makes it a plus if you have much luggage.

  • Joan's apartment is in a wonderful, quiet neighborhood. Easy access to freeway. Lots of plants, often quiet relaxing music, no blaring tv. An extremely relaxing place to come home to. Joan is an amazingly easy person to get along with.

  • Joan is such a great host - absolute pleasure being her guest. Her place is like advertised - a sanctuary - very close to the city and convenient to places north bay but nice and quiet. I slept incredibly soundly on the bed and had to sneak a look at the manufacturer and model - it's my new object of desire.

  • Joan was super friendly, communicated well, and made us feel right at home. Also, we often had the place to ourselves, as her schedule led her to be gone most afternoons and evenings. Her place was clean, quiet, and comfortable, and in a super location.

  • Joan's room is comfortable and well located for a wide variety of activities in SF, Marin and even Sonoma. The house is a delightful, restful space. Joan provides good space in the kitchen for cooking, keeping fruit fresh etc.
    Highly recommended!

  • Joan's place is absolutely lovely!

    Clean, comfortable, inviting and serene.

    Joan herself is a delight, I recommend morning tea if your schedule permits.

    I would most definitely stay with Joan again. In fact, I hope to!
