Michelle and Jeffrey went above and beyond my expectations as Airbnb hosts, and helped me make the most out of my 3-day stay in San Francisco. Whether it was enjoying a late night soul performance at a local bar, getting a personalized day tour of some of the more interesting spots in the city, or simply enjoying insightful discussion over a delicious homemade breakfast, Michelle and Jeffrey were constant in helping me find the best way to spend my time during my trip.
The 'tree-house' room is cozy, and you can easily step outside at a moment's notice to catch a breath of fresh air. The temperate San Francisco summertime nights along with a comfy bed provided ideal conditions for getting a good night's sleep (if that is what you are looking for :) ). The house is situated right at the center of the city, which makes it easy to get to your destination, wherever that may be.
Michelle and Jeffrey will help you experience the San Francisco you want to experience, and will do their best to make sure that you are well-equipped to accomplish whatever you set out to do during your stay. Highly recommended.
In preparation for grad school at USF the next month, I flew over early to try to lock down a place to live, and decided to use Airbnb as my home base. Staying with Michelle and Jeffrey was an excellent decision. They know this city, and are very willing to share that knowledge. They're excellent tour guides for the real SF. For me, I got the crash course in how not to be a tourist. They're also masters of hospitality, brewing coffee every morning, making breakfast and dinner, providing to the best of their ability whatever their guest needs. They also went above and beyond with guidance on finding a place to live, which is really tricky here. All in all, this was probably the best introduction to the city I could possibly have had.
Stayed in SF for 8 days for business and a weekend off. Good communication before and during my stay. Very pleased with the attention to personal wishes.
Warm welcome, pleasant neighborhood close to shops, restaurants, park etc. Small room with a great view. Nice bed and quiet street for good nights.
What else can I say ?
