Sandor and his lovely wife, Giuliana, were the perfect hosts for our recent weekend stay at their home in the Marina district. It was our first airbnb experience, and they helped make our stay extra-enjoyable. Their house was cozy and inviting, our bed super-comfy, and there was plenty to do and see just a short walk away. Another great feature: free parking on the street! (You can see the Golden Gate Bridge at the end of the block.)
After a seven-hour drive, Sandor greeted us with wine, cheese and crackers. Throughout our two-night stay, Sandor and Guiliana went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. They were delightful conversationalists, and provided us with a tasty breakfast. Oh, and they have the two most adorable dogs. Highly recommended!
We have 2 nights at Sandor and Giuliana slept and that is very good.
We are spoiled with the delicious breakfast [nice warm croissants] and the hostess were very friendly.
And everything was within walking distance.
What a fantastic stay! Sandor and Giuliana were phenomenal hosts, very warm and welcoming, and full of great conversation. We stayed with them for two nights on our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for better hosts. Their home is lovely and you could tell they really love meeting their guests. They also gave us great insight on things to do in the area. The location is great, right near the Golden Gate Bridge. We are avid walkers so it was really enjoyable to walk over the bridge, walk to Golden Gate Park and the Japanese Tea Garden, and we weren't far from good nightlife and bars either.
A great experience altogether.
they are extremely nice people! Sandor pick me up at airport and, on the way back, he gave us a lot of comments about where to visit on San Francisco. In the morning, they would bring the breakfast on the table and had a nice conversation to start one day.
Estuvimos como en casa.los anfitriones son de edad similar a la nuestra y con gustos parecidos.ademas de ello tienen una gran amabikidad
Giuliana and Sandor were wonderful hosts. They both have warm personalities and gave me great advice while I stayed there. The location cannot be beat in the Marina, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge down the street and the Palace of Fine Arts is just a short walk away. I highly recommend :)
Had a great trip! Beautiful house in an amazing are of the city. Hosts are kind and generous, would love to stay again.
My wife and I have lived in San Francisco for 40 years; prior to this, we lived in the Los Angeles area for nearly 10 years. I am originally from Hungary. I left when I was 16 in 1956. My wife, Giuliana, was born in Italy and grew up in Venezuela. For four decades, I managed our family’s pasta factory, Eduardo’s Pasta, in San Francisco. Giuliana, meanwhile was the CEO of a management company that specialized in non-profit organizations . Between the two us we speak four languages: Magyar, English, Italian and Spanish. We have traveled extensively in Europe and South America and welcome international and national guests. We love living in San Francisco and taking full advantage of the geographic, social and cultural activities it has to offer. Our home is I a perfect location to easily explore the city and its intriguing, diverse neighborhoods. As the long-time columnist in the San Francisco Chronicle, Herb Caen, once said, “One day, if I do go to heaven, I will look around and say, ‘It ain’t bad, but it ain’t San Francisco.’”
