Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My family stayed at Robert's apartment for two nights and our experience exceeded all of our expectations. The apartment was spotlessly clean. I am very picky about cleanliness when staying in hotels/rentals and I am happy to say that I had no complaints at all. Exactly like the pictures in the listing. The apartment is very comfortable and homey. I really appreciated all the attention to detail with the items that were stocked in the apartment. It seemed like anything that we might need was provided. Unfortunately we didn't get to use the hot tub as we arrived too late each night after exploring the city to use it. Parking was easy to find, just pay attention to street cleaning signs. The farthest we had to park was about a block away. We would highly recommend booking with Robert. When we come back to San Francisco we will definitely rent from him again. Thank you for a great stress free stay! Definitely a home away from home!

  • We loved our stay here. Rob was a fantastic host, flexible in meeting us for check in. The apartment was as pictured and super comfortable for our needs. Very roomy and well stocked with towels, etc. We really appreciated the hot tub and the large kitchen. You can hear the hosts in their home above the apartment from time to time, but overall you get a very secure, homey feel from the space. Very much enjoyed our stay!

  • Awesome experience! The apartment was very clean and spacious. The backyard was delightful and very private. Definitely want to stay here again. A great way to experience San Francisco.

  • Very satisfied with our stay at Rob's apartment. The place is very spacious and clean. Perfect for our family (mom, dad and a 2 year old).
    The hot tub was perfect in the afternoon after a long walking day carrying a 2 year old haha... My toddler also enjoyed as it was a small "swimming pool"

    It is best that you rent a car from SFO then park in the area (finding parking spot is very easy). Getting a taxi from SFO and going back there will probably cost as much as renting a car for a week.
    Finding a parking spot in SF is general is relatively easy (especially compared to NYC).
    I was able to find cheap parking easily in downtown (park in city garage), in Fisherman's wharf (street parking), near Golden Gate Park (Science Museum), Presidio (Crissy Field), etc.

    Very close to the beach (about 10 blocks), very close to Golden Gate Park (2 blocks away, but GGPark is huge!!).

    Very close to public transportation (muni bus).

    Close to Safeway grocery store(about 10 blocks), which is handy for getting cereals etc.

    (and there is a really good Chinese food restaurant called Hakka about 5 blocks away so you don't need to go to Chinatown...)

    Host is very friendly and accommodating. Rob lent me his printer and answered many questions.

  • Justo lo que necesitábamos después de 3 semanas de viaje por Estados Unidos!!! Éramos dos parejas, y la casa ha resultado ser perfecta, bonita, funcional y sobre todo muy limpia y perfectamente equipada!!! No le falta detalle!!
    Su anfitrión además super dispuesto a ayudarnos en todo, y nos dio toda clase de facilidades y demostró ser un gran tipo. El barrio no es céntrico, pero es muy bonito y esta bien comunicado, con buenas vistas y parque.
    En resumen, un 10 sobre 10. Si volvemos a San Francisco, repetimos seguro. Gracias, Robert!!

  • Lovely basement apartment close to Golden Gate Park and within 1/2 mile of the Ocean and Coast Trail. The backyard is also a great amenity - especially if you catch a warm sunny San Francisco afternoon. Had a great time!

  • Robert's apt. in GGP was great. In addition to what is listed, a Jacuzzi was waiting already hot! (Note* Curfew for use is 10:30pm) Robert is a great host too, the kitchen had coffee and all the basic necessities available. Glasses, (email hidden)c. Walking distance to the park, plenty of cafes, some bars, Safeway grocery store and the beach. A bonus for us was there were plenty of places nearby that had Gluten-Free options. Although there are buses and trams, a car would be of great benefit. Robert was a gracious host, even accommodating a late check-in (10pm.) Host lives above the apartment, and as with all/most apartments expect to hear footsteps - some early in the morning. This wasn't much of an issue for us since we wanted to make the most of our time in SF. Would definitely stay here again!

  • On our next trip to San Francisco, we are definitely returning to this apartment! Great location, very kid-friendly set up, fully stocked kitchen, and tons of living space (great for entertaining a few friends). The hot tub and grill were wonderful perks. Very quiet neighborhood and the unit (and neighborhood) are spotless. The pack and play that we borrowed for my 9-month old was absolutely perfect. Having access to a washer and dryer was key, too. Oh, and street parking was ample. Thank you, Rob!

  • Very nice location, and a spacious and clean apartment. Four people can stay very comfortably. It's also very close to public transport.

  • We had a great stay at Robert's apartment. It was very clean and roomy. I felt very safe in the neighborhood as well. The parking was free on the residential streets. You just have to check the signs for street cleaning etc.. We had no problem finding spots within a block of the house. It was the perfect retreat from our adventures in the city. Robert has a drawer of maps and travel books to help decide what activities we wanted to do and how to gt to where we needed to go. I had never stayed in that area before and found it to be very convenient. We enjoyed a drive though Golden Gate Park and found fun places to stop and do some exploring. It was an easy drive to Fisherman's wharf as well. There is a great hot tub out the back door to relax after a day of exploring. There is a Safeway 8 blocks away and other local markets in walking distance as well. The house was comfy and there were extra pillows and blankets if needed.
