The kitchen and balcony get a lot of sun, especially in the morning. Feel free to eat on the balcony. Cushions are on the washing machine. If possible, could you water the plants on the balcony if you have time?

Before running the dish washer, please turn on the garbage disposal with running water from sink for 10 seconds. This well help to keep the water flow going. Otherwise the dish washer may flood. Also: our dishwasher works best on "China/Crystal" setting, NOT "Normal". Not sure why.

My family and I (husband and two teenagers) had a great experience at Alex's place. We felt immediately at home and Alex made us feel so welcome. We enjoyed cooking in a well-equipped kitchen. Great bakery and coffee just around the corner. Lovely quiet neighbourhood.

My family and I had a great time in this spacious and comfortable flat which is located in a neighbourhood full of restaurants of all sorts. Busses to downtown SF are easy to figure out and close by. Alex left us a whole bunch of books and brochures on the area so we were well informed of what to see and how to get there. Can only recommend a stay in Alex and co.'s place.

We loved Alex's appartment. Three beds (in three different rooms) was perfect for us and our teenage kids. Everything as advertised, clean and comfortable. Nice neighbourhood, public transport (various buses) around the corner. Alex was a very attentive host. I recommend his place warmly.

Myself, my wife and 19 year old son stayed in Alex's apartment for 2 weeks 15th to 25th July 2016. The apartment was everything we wanted, it is spacious and comfortable and we felt at home immediately we arrived. The location is perfect with restaurants and shops of every kind within a few minutes walk. We found this location particularly good for transport and central to all the tourist stops eg Twin Peaks, The Haight, Golden Gate Bridge etc. If we were in the city late having dinner at Chinatown, Columbus St or Fishermans Wharf we would just catch an Uber back which costs around $12-15. Alex is a great host and prepared instructions which covered every aspect of the home and gave as plenty of great suggestions on where to eat, shop and visit. We had a fantastic two weeks in San Francisco and we could not have found a better place to stay or a more perfect host. Thank you Alex.

Alex did a great job in helping make our first trip to SF a success! Prior to arriving, Alex answered a lot of questions I had and made some helpful suggestions on restaurants and transportation around the city. Finding the flat and accessing keys was easy and there were clear labels and instructions in each room so you knew exactly where everything was and what you were free to use during you stay. Alex wasn't in town while we were there, but we didn't have any issues and he checked in once to make sure everything was fine. I would definitely recommend his flat to anyone looking for a quite, comfortable flat near golden gate park.

Alex and his family have a very charming flat located near the Presidio. It's well maintained and comfortable, with nice restaurants nearby. There's a great bookstore close by as well. Alex was exemplary host and provided lots of good tips in advance of our arrival. The most useful was to not rent a car for anything other than day trips. Parking in San Francisco is simply too tight. I highly recommend Alex's flat and would happily stay there again.

Alex was very accommodating and friendly, showed me around the flat and made me feel right at home. I will definitely try to stay there when I visit again. It is in a very nice location with lots of stuff nearby!
