This is a very sweet little, and I do mean small, apartment nestled in a garden in a great neighborhood here in San Francisco. We have great cafes and restaurants in short walking distance along with excellent public transportation but we also have a parking place if you have a car and that is worth it's weight in gold around here.
The reservation was canceled 31 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights, and overall had a great experience. The apartment is centrally located, close to bus lines, and is located a little off the street so our stay was very quiet and private. The parking space was fantastic! We didn't use the kitchen much but it has everything you would need. The bed was very comfortable. As other guests have noted, the Wifi worked great - no TV, but we hardly noticed that because we were too busy out exploring. Within walking distance of so many great cafes and shops, and 30 minutes of walking will get you to the Mission or Golden Gate Park (and lots of other places, but those were two of our walking destinations).
One note for future guests: the door to the bathroom is basically a pocket door like you would see on a closet, with slats (right by the bed)...so if you're a stickler for bathroom privacy, that might be a little odd? The water pressure in the bathroom was fine. No full-length mirror.
If you're driving to SF (solo or with a partner), this is a great bet.
My husband stayed in the small garden apartment while in San Francisco for business. He said the apartment was small, but clean and tidy. Check in and out were made very easy by Flecher. The WiFi worked well, and the parking spot was ideal and a very helpful component to have. The location was nice and close to Golden Gate park, as well as several restaurants within walking distance.
The only thing he wished the apartment had was a hook in the bathroom to hang his towel. Other than that, he had no complaints and would definitely stay there again.
Very cute (Small) 1 bedroom apartment in a great location in San Francisco. The room is basically 1 bed... A very comfortable bed.
Large bathroom and big enough kitchen for a few days stay.
Marie is a very lovely lady, very helpful. She let us check in a little earlier since my plane arrived earlier.
Price was great... I didn't get to use to parking spot much but if you have a car this would be amazing.
There is wireless internet but no TV. Close to everything. 15min bus ride from Downtown.
Overall I was very pleased with this place and will recommend it to anyone who is look for a cost efficient place to sleep while staying in San Fran.
Charming studio in a great location - close to many good restaurants and Golden Gate Park. The off-street parking is an exceptional bonus as that is usually our biggest headache when we visit SF. Communication was smooth and hassle-free.
The one room apartment is a part of a house of wonderful people. Situated on the edge of some very different and very appealing neighborhoods with close bus connections. Walkable to Panhandle, Haight Street, Alamo Square Park, sunday farmers market, Trader Joe's, and around 10 cafe's and restaurants around Divisadero Street.
Flecher and his mother Mary were nice hosts. The studio was newly furnished and looked recently remodeled. The studio was clean, pretty and welcoming. The kitchen was particularly pretty and the bath was a nice, roomy tub.
There has been some hiccups over damage done to the place. My friend I was staying with there brought her small service dog who ended up damaging three slats on the blinds covering the front door. Mary was upset because apparently dogs were not welcome there, although there was no mention of that on their airbnb page. When we found out about that my friend went home a day early so as not to upset them any more. We offered to pay for the damage and Mary asked us for $200 upfront. We asked for an estimate from the company. She called this week and told us it was only $6 for the actually slats but that she didn't want to slid them on the blinds herself so that it would cost $70 more for installation. I was surprised at the cost but my friend is still willing to pay for it all. What was most surprising is that Mary asked for an unspecified amount of money simply for the "hassle" of it all.
Just a note- there was no TV or entertainment system if that is something you want. This was their first time hosting so I think the few issues that came up will probably have been figured out by the time they host again.
