  • Really great experience in Brian and Leah's Mission apartment. Very well-located, on a quiet street right between Mission and Valencia Streets, it has everything around: transportation, grocery stores, excellent restaurants, and lots of other shops. The apartment also has everything you'd need for a one-week stay for 4 people, and a very nice backyard. Will definitely recommend their apartment for staying in San Francisco!

  • Brian and Leah's property is absolutely fantastic!
    I travelled with 2 other people and this property fitted us more than comfortably. It's in the heart of absolutely everything you want in the Mission district. If you want to head out further, the train station is 2 blocks away.
    The place was clean and accommodated all the household needs. Sick of dining out? It caters everything one would need to cook at home. Want to dine out? There's a taqueria literally around the corner, Thai a block away, Serrano's pizza 2 blocks down and Vietnamese less than a block away.
    Brian & Leah have also stocked up everything you need for a night in for those hungover days. Large flat screen TV with a Roku box where Brian and Leah have supplied access to their own Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Crackle accounts.
    High speed internet included.
    Brian and Leah have also included an amazing information folder upon arrival with some lovely accommodating chocolates!
    Beds were comfortable and bedrooms were a really great size.
    The courtyard is shared. We never got to meet the neighbours or ever really saw them out in the yard.
    Bathroom facilities are very clean.

    Next time I travel to San Francisco, I will definitely be booking this place again.

    Location is on a quiet street with little traffic, wedged between two main strips. Numerous grocery outlets close by and Dolores Park is a 5 - 10 minute walk away.

    I can't stress enough how amazing this place is.

    Thanks for making our stay in San Francisco so enjoyable! I feel as though a large reason why my stay was so enjoyable was due to this place and the convenience.

  • Brian and Leah's place was fantastic. The location is great and totally walkable to the BART and many bars/restaurants in the Mission. The place was super clean, comfortable, and fun to hang in, especially the great back yard patio. Would definitely stay again!

  • Brian and Leah were so accommodating to us and helped us in every way possible. They recommended several places in the area that we did check out and were amazing. This bnb was perfect for us girls. It had a very large living area and a nice patio that we used everyday. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Brian and Leah's place in the Mission was perfect for our group. It was spacious and comfortable and the back patio was so nice for relaxing in the sun. The beds were comfortable, the shower was hot, and there were lots of clean towels and extra bedding. The location was amazing and we were able to walk everywhere and the Bart stop was a 5 min walk away. Brian was responsive and helpful when we had questions. I would definitely stay here again!

  • The door code didn't work
    They didn't answer the phone
    I was left stranded and find somewhere else to stay on my own with no help from this host and no help from airbnb

    Response from Brian & Leah:

    We take great pride in being very responsive hosts and strive to make our guest's stays as comfortable as possible. As a result, we felt compelled to respond to the incident and explain why this unfortunate situation happened. We have also since apologized to Doug and have refunded his money.

    By way of explanation, we were on vacation in a remote part of Argentina (Iguazu Falls) when Doug attempted to reach us by phone. Although our phones were working during our vacation, we had spotty reception at certain points. In short, we did not receive Doug's message until we returned to Buenos Aires several days later.

    Since we were traveling, we asked our friend to monitor emails in the event a guest had an issue that required immediate attention. In this case, we weren't alerted by airbnb or Doug about the issue via email. If we had received an email, we would have made arrangements for our cleaner to immediately meet the guest at the apartment.

    With respect to the door locks and access codes-our apartments are controlled by e-locks. We issue a code and the guest can simply check in. Our guests appreciate the ease and convenience of not having to carry keys or meet up in advance to pick them up. Upon hearing Doug had an issue with the e-lock we asked our cleaner to check the lock and it was working perfectly. We've also had several subsequent guests check in using the same e-lock without incident. My best guest is that Doug attempted to check in early and was not able to enter the apartment since the locks are pre-programed and will not work prior to the designated check in time.

    Again, we feel terrible about this incident but wanted to provide the airbnb community with a response and an explanation as to why this happened. Our ultimate goal is to make our guest comfortable at all times during their stay with us.

  • The place was not only perfectly located (two blocks from BART), but it was also a wonderful space in which to stay. My colleagues and I we extremely comfortable in the apartment, from the cleanliness of the rooms to the comfort of the back patio. There were some great amenities: a coffee/waffle shop at the end of the block and a whole slew of restaurants on nearby Valencia St. The apartment had an excellent selection of books (as if you would have spare time in a place like San Francisco), and we also enjoyed the bluetooth Jambox for playing music in the apartment. I look forward to returning to this apartment in the future!

  • We had a great time in SF. The apartment is very cute, clean and confortable for a family with 2 children. It is well located in Mission, with 49 (to downtown, Marketing street and Powell station) and 33 (to Golden Gate Park) bus stops just around the corner and everything you may need (groceries, restaurants etc...) quite near. Brian and Leah are very reactve in case you have any question (which was our case with the e-lock...). I would definitely recommend it.

  • It was a great apartament. The kitchen was very complete. Misión st isnt very nice, but Valencia is awesome and there are buses and subways near by. It has a big patio and we made a bbq. We recommend this place!

  • We can strongly recommend the 2 bed room apartment on San Carlos Street!
    1) GREAT location! Valencia Street - with all its restaurants and bars - is just around the corner. Further, the Bart station (to get to the city) is just a 5 min walk away. If you want to stay in the Mission you can't get a better location.
    2) Perfect condition. Nice kitchen, bedrooms and bath room. And the apartment feels much bigger than the picture shows. We also appreciated the backyard a lot during sunny days!
    3) Reliable hosts: Brian and Leah answered all our questions immediately. We definitely felt we were in safe hands!

    If/when we come back to SF this apartment will be our no 1 choice.
