Other Things to Note
Note that there are 2 long staircases - one is an open staircase (see photo). Home isn't suitable for very young children due to open staircase and hot tub safety issues.
No smoking is allowed anywhere on the premises, including on the deck. No pets allowed. Home is not suitable for very young children. You may use food in the cupboards but please replace anything you finish (or almost finish). No glass is allowed on the deck or in the hot tub - please use plastic cups for drinks.
Best house (actually better than the pictures even!!), and best neighbourhood. I will definitely ask again for availabilities for my next trip to SF. Robin and her son were extremely nice.
Public transportation is close, but didn't use it much (was with my Mom and she's older, otherwise I would have).
There are a number of good local, non-chain restaurants within short walking distance. This applies to coffee shops/bakeries too.
The condo was very clean, hot tub was nice (only used it once). The kitchen looked like it would be great to cook in, however, we did not, given the short duration of our stay.
Overall, I would look to stay here again if I was coming into SF and needed lodging.
It was a great pleasure and privilege to stay in your beautiful home. The neighborhood has some great restaurants and bars. I would recommend Robin's place to anyone traveling to San Fransisco.
Robin's place is terrific! Spacious, well appointed and comfortable. Feels much bigger than it looks in the pictures, with high ceilings and lots of light. We had a lovely stay there for 5 nights with our two children (ages 7 and 10) and they did fine on the stairs. We are definitely going to be back the next time we get to SF.
We were very fortunate as Robin was extremely hospitable & her house was everything plus more than we expected--she takes great pride in her beautiful home.
The location was tremendous around wonderful amenities including, restaurants, grocery shops, & walking distance to some great areas.
We stayed with my daughter & her boyfriend, & we all had a very enjoyable stay in Robin's house.
It was a really lovely stay, very pleasant, the Townhouse is big and comfortable, Robin is a very nice host and we enjoyed the 5 days we stayed at her place.
About the Host, Robin
I am a warm, outgoing professional who welcomes you to my home in San Francisco. I love traveling, hiking, exploring and trying new things. I appreciate my neighborhood for the great restaurants and bars so I can go out with friends and enjoy a good meal or place to relax with a drink. My guests will have a comfortable home to come back to after a long day of sightseeing to relax in the hot tub or stretch out in front of the TV.
