Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My friend and I stayed at Kathy’s place in late March. We really enjoyed our stay there. First, the house is in one of the best locations for those who go to San Francisco for sightseeing. We really enjoyed walking from house to the seaside which took almost 20 mins. The house even has a view of Golden Gate Bridge from the rooftop. The room gets a lot of sunshine. The bed was comfy enough to get a good sleep after a long, tiring day. The house was super-clean. Kathy is a great host and she is so kind and helpful. Since it was our first time in SF, we asked a lot of questions and she patiently answered and helped us a lot. She even contacted us for the things we forgot in the room and told that she can send them. That would never happen in a regular hotel. I would definitely stay at Kathy’s place again.

  • It was the best appartment we stayed with airbnb on our trip in California. Kathy made herself a really beautiful and comfy home. Everything was clean and organized. When we arrived, Kathy gave us a nice introduction to her little castle. We had our own room and got the privacy we needed at any time. Thanks again, for the uncomplicated time!
