In one word? Disappointment!
We recommend to verify the condition of the house and the host's fairness.
We were 2 families with one teenager each traveling together. Our contact with the host began very promising: good communication,apparently the house and the host met all our expectations. The check and check out were nice and pleasant. The problems began when we discovered after a few days of journey that the washing machine, the the dryer are not functioning properly. We had a conversation with the host about that. But since the host was so nice, we decided not to make a big story and to make the laundry in the neighborhood. It was very disturbing , but after all, we came to San Francisco to make fun and not to deal with house keeping. The general condition of the house was not good, but we decided after a discursion not to place any opinion about the house and leave to following guests to judge the house condition themselves. We also assumed that it happens that a house needs some improvement, and the hosts are aware about that. But unfortunately after we left, the host decided to improve the house condition beginning with the dryer on at our expenses . We feel very sorry about the outcome and call other guests not to use the house until all the problems will be addressed..
We are proud to have excellent reviews for our house and have been doing airbnb for a long time. We respectfully disagree with the guest's assessment of our washer/dryer and of our house. Our cleaning person used the washer/dryer the day before without any problems. The first day the guests arrived they called Louise as they were having problems with the washing machine. She came to the house and said it was overloaded with clothes. When we came back to our house after the guests left, the washing machine worked; however the dryer was broken and needed repair--the belt snapped and the repairman said due to overloading. The guests did not tell us the dryer didn't work. There should have been no need to do laundry outside the house as both machines worked before they came. We don't believe anything was done on purpose, but we know both machines were overloaded. We hoped the guest would take some responsibility for that. We always keep the house clean and put a lot of effort into pleasing our guests. We immediately address concerns and needed repairs as we make sure nothing is broken before guests arrive.
Louise and Jim were very proactive and easy to deal with. They made coordinating the stay in their home simple, which was great. As other reviewers have noted, you are very much staying in their home but they do make it simple to slip in and make it your own during your stay. The neighborhood is convenient to many things. Their street is louder than we expected but the bedrooms are in the back of the house so it doesn't end up being a problem.
Jim, welcomed us when we got there and gave us a tour around the house and handed us a bottle of wine on the way out. The house was perfect for what we needed. Plenty of space for three couples and a separate bathroom for all of us. The parking was a huge plus and across the street there were some hiking trails we were able to take advantage of. Louise and Jim were very responsive whenever we had a question. We had a great time in SF. Hopefully, we can come back again soon.
Very nice apartment, we had a lot of space and there are detailed instructions for everything. Louise and Jim are always fast at responding our questions, and made us feel very welcomed. Loved the neighborhood and its views, easy to get around in SF from there too!
We had a great time at Louise and Jim's home. They are incredibly nice and overly accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful time.
A extended family from Beijing, China spent three days in Louis and Jim's house.
The location was perfect, especially with the roadside parking place. Very convenient!
Three bed rooms and individual bath rooms fit to my extended family very well.
My family enjoyed the lovely house. We like the design very much, and the beautiful poems on the wall.
Louise and Jim have a great/quaint place in the south part of San Francisco. Near shops and a BART station, it has a great location with easy access to the highway also. The off-street parking is a huge plus and the number of available bedrooms/bathrooms is great for groups. You are definitely staying IN their home and to see the amount of history and love of the family that lives here provides a good comfortable environment. I did not get to meet Louise and Jim personally but they were very easy to communicate with and the entire process was smooth/efficient. They even left us a bottle of wine and some snacks!

Jim runs three times a week, works on his art, reads, does house projects and volunteer work. He loves watching sports. Louise teaches creative writing classes and writes books--and we both love reading, visiting museums, watching movies, seeing plays, visiting with family and friends and experiencing the great outdoors. We love meeting new people from all around the world.
We also still love to camp and Jim recently climbed to the top of Telescope Peak in Death Valley. Keeping active--mind, body and spirit--is important to us--as well as learning about life through all the new people we meet. We're also both independent people and understand and respect the need for privacy!
