We had a great time here, it was a wonderful place to stay for almost two weeks. Great location (safe and beautiful neighborhood, close to the shops, easy street parking), very homie, and a lovely back yard with outdoor furniture. The space was ideal for two couples, and even fitted an extra couple on an air mattress provided by the host. Having the extra half bath was great, and the kitchen was fully equipped to prepare our family dinners. The host is very friendly, responsive, and accommodating. We truly had a blast and would certainly come again if available!
It's a very beautiful home! My friends and I planned a vacation to San Francisco, but didn't want to stay in the city. This place is perfect because it is away from the city, but not too far. I think it was a 15 minute drive or so.
As mentioned in the description, the owners daughter does live in the basement. So, I was surprised that someone had brought it up as a concern in a previous review. Billy had made it clear that his daughter and a dog is residing at the house. But although Lillie, the daughter, did live in the house we barely saw her because she stayed in her room downstairs. However, one of the bathroom and the kitchen is shared. But again, we didn't have any conflicts due to work the sharing situation.
It was also mentioned that there was no air conditioning at this home. I didn't think that it would be a problem since we were going in the beginning of summer. However, it did become uncomfortably warm in the house. Opening the doors and windows helped a lot! Unfortunately the doors and windows did not have screens, so moths and mosquitoes did come in. Hence, we could not leave it open at night. It was a bit warm at night. I think that would be my only "conplaint" I had during the stay. Although I mentioned it in this review, it was not that big of a deal.
The back garden was beautiful as well, so it's a shame that we weren't able to spend more time there as a result of our busy schedule.
My whole experience here was great! Lillie was a fantastic host, the dog was VERY friendly (I'm so afraid of dogs), location was great (lots of stores nearby), etc.
