Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement. Éric et Flora sont très accueillants, chaleureux et soucieux du confort de leurs hôtes.
L'appartement est spacieux, confortable, et très bien placé pour parcourir la ville à pied.
Nous reviendrons un jour je l'espère !!
Eric was a gracious host who made us feel welcome in his lovely apartment. We arrived to find a nice welcome note, a bottle of wine and San Francisco chocolate!! The spacious apartment was clean and very well appointed with bright bathrooms and the bed was quite comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and convenient with many shops and restaurants within walking distance that Eric had left in a list for us. The livingroom opened onto a beautiful, enclosed deck area surrounded by greenery and flowers! We found everything we needed in their well organized kitchen area. We would highly recommend this apartment for an enjoyable get-away! Thank you so much Eric!
This was our first experience with Airbnb, and we're really glad it was at such a great apartment! Exactly as advertised and super clean. The location was fantastic too; very close to the bus to downtown, and several tasty restaurants. Plus who could beat that view of the city and these iconic homes. What we really liked was that it didn't feel like we were staying in someone else's bedroom (if you know what we mean). Before we booked with Eric, we saw several properties that felt more like we'd be staying in a cousin's bedroom at the in-law's. This place is not like that at all. It's a separate dedicated apartment, that is spacious, renovated, and quite comfortable.
Maybe we got lucky, but we also didn't have any problems with parking. Over the couple of days we were there we didn't go too far in our car, but both times we did we were able to park within a block of the house. Also, thought I saw another review that mentioned hearing pets during their visit. We did hear some dogs upstairs, but nothing that bothered us. And for most of the stay I'd say it was pretty quite.
Although we didn't get to meet Eric, he was very responsive to emails, and generally available if we had needed him. Overall, great host, and fantastic apartment.
Eric is a great host, his house is perfect and very well located. He was so kind towards us, he even left a welcome wine bottle in the fridge… Thanks, Eric, from all of us !
Mi experiencia en la casa de Eric y flora fue excelente!!! Todo impecable y limpio. La casa es muy espaciosa y cómoda! Lo recomiendo 100 %! La mejor vista de San Francisco desde la casa.
This beautifully renovated Victorian was the perfect choice for us- we loved being on Alamo Square and were able to walk to great restaurants & sights! Eric & Flora are so accommodating & available whenever we needed a suggestion or had a question! Thank- you both we'll definitely stay with you again the next time we're in San Francisco!!! Michele & Dieter
Our stay was absolutely amazing! The neighborhood and accommodations were as San Francisco as you can get. We loved it and our hosts were very friendly and gracious! We would definitely stay again!
I've lived in San Francisco for 30 years and know the City and Northern California well! I am a graduate of Golden Gate University and work in the real estate industry. I like to spend time sailing and swimming in San Francisco Bay, hiking in the Redwood forests, and camping in the Sierras. My little dog (a Pomerainian Terrier) is the perfect companion! At the end of the day we both have an appetite and often enjoy the pleasure of cooking a wonderful meal with our guests!
