LeighAnna's apartment is beautiful and immaculately clean, a zen retreat with high ceilings, large windows, and tasteful design elements. "What's the catch...?" I thought to myself when I first arrived. There isn't one, thankfully.
The neighborhood is damned near perfect. Close to everything yet quiet and lovely.
This was my second time staying here and it was just as lovely as ever. Super clean, so well put together, and LeighAnna was really helpful with a few questions I had. I would absolutely stay here again and again when visiting San Francisco!
We absolutely love this apartment. Fantastic location, beautifully decorated, easy access to the MUNI and some really amazing neighborhoods close by. It's a warm, inviting space, with a big backyard and lots of room within the apartment. LeighAnna was a great host and was really prompt and sensitive to our needs. We will definitely be back and would supply an enthusiastic recommendation to anyone thinking of staying here.
This is hands down the best AirBnB property we have stayed in. Well-located in the Castro, spotless, and very well decorated with new, modern finishes on everything and great instructions for every detail in the house. Props to the owners for great design on this place too. HIGHLY recommend.
Stayed at LeighAnna's place for a few days in early October. We had a lovely time. The place is AMAZING. Beautifully appointed. Amenities were great. Just a few blocks from the Castro, very convenient. Communication was timely. Took advantage of the yoga available only a couple of blocks away. I would definitely recommend staying with LeighAnna.
Wow. I could not have loved this place more. I rented this place for a group of girlfriends coming into town for my wedding. In the words of one of them upon arriving, "this place is the nuts." Huge and glorious and well-stocked, this place could not have been more perfect. Even though I live right around the corner I want to rent it for a mini staycation. My friends and I ate breakfast out on the sunny porch, cooked dinner in the epic kitchen and drank wine and gabbed on the comfy couch. Would rent this place again in a heartbeat.
