This Airbnb was easily the best ever! Both Stephania and Juan were incredible... welcoming, kind, and attentive. The apartment itself is in an amazing location, right and bright as it appears in the photos and its location truly cannot be beat in SF! The train to go to the Pier(s)... Ferry building, Exploratorium is literally one minute walk from the apartment... not to mention that it overlooks Dolores Park. 3 blocks away from Valencia with all its restaurants and great little venues. Absolutely LOVED IT! I was initially concerned about the shared-bathroom situation, but it's so clean.. spacious and never became an issue. I will definitely stay there again and will highly recommend to anyone! Great stay, incredible hosts... Amazing experience!
Nothing short of perfect! Juan Carlos and Stefania went over and above. They were generous and thoughtful at every opportunity and made our stay in they're beautiful home a memory to cherish. Location, location, location! The Mission area is beautiful and Juan and Stef's place abuts a beautiful park, perfect for late morning yoga or picnic with food from any one of the amazing healthy eateries nearby. If all AirBnb goes this well I'll never hotel again!
Ste and Juan are wonderful, exceptional hosts! They were prompt and communicative from start to finish. Their home is absolutely beautiful; even better than it looks in the listing, mostly because of their lovely presence! We were greeted with lime water, fresh grapes, Ste's homemade soaps, and decadent chocolate covered almonds. We enjoyed interesting conversation and great recommendations from them. Staying in Dolores Park is a lot of fun. The roof deck attached to the guest room is so lovely and the view is phenomenal. They make sure you are equipped with everything you could possibly need and more! Ste and Juan are a beautiful, gracious couple and staying in their home was a privilege. I could not recommend it more!
Both the space and the hosts were amazing here. Ste and Juan were extremely welcoming and it really felt comfortable to be in the house spending time with them. The location and the house were better than the pictures. We were able to walk to just about any place we wanted to go in the Mission, Castro, and the Tenderloin from their place, and it was beautiful to wake up in the morning and see the city from the roof. I can't say too many good things about this location and especially the hosts. Highly recommended!
