The location was perfect for where I wanted to be. I enjoyed the use of the exercise room. Everything was very clean and it was a very peaceful retreat.
10/10. Chris was very hospitable and his place was super clean and well maintained. I really enjoyed the stay. Room and bathroom were private and Chris also offered me a nice breakfast in the morning. He was also very friendly, introduced me to his friends, and invited me to exercise with him at the gym. Definitely recommend this place.
The place was very clean and room is very comfortable! On street parking was easy. Christophe was very friendly and provided fruits, toast, juice and coffee/tea for breakfast. We would love to come back and stay again.
We had a great time at Christophe's! He is such a nice guy and we enjoyed his hospitality. So sweet that he prepared the breakfast table for us each morning. The place is super spotless clean and you could literally eat off the floor. Would definitely go there again!
Hi Christophe, you were a good host. You provided everything we need for a restorative stay. Spot was an impressive watch dog and made us feel safe - you said we could even leave the window open. And this was a good sign since I really wasn't sure that the Mexican neighborhood was okay.
One possible improvement would be to ask if your visitors eat white bread for breakfast - which we don't. A few more glasses might be helpful too.
Otherwise, your house is really clean and quiet. We very much enjoyed and profited from talking with you about your life and business in SV. Much continued success!
Christophe was a wonderful host. He made us feel at home while also giving us plenty of privacy and space. I can't recommend Christophe highly enough.
Christophe greeted us with glasses of fresh squeezed orange juice upon our arrival. His house was easy to find and we felt comfortable and safe in the neighborhood. Parking on the street was super easy and we were able to keep our bikes in his driveway. Each morning Christophe laid out a continental breakfast with coffee and fresh bread or croissants. We were able to buy groceries (mostly fruit and cheese) and keep them in his refrigerator. We really wanted to work out in his gym, but our time was limited and so we were unable to do so. The room was comfortable and was roomy enough for two of us, and having our own bathroom was lovely.
