Quite the place. Note what everyone, including Lawrence, warns about taxidermy, but I found it charming. (Loved the wolf!) Some are taken aback, but I was more intimidated by his nuclear-powered sound system. I declined to turn it on, despite the instructions he left. Terrific collection of CDs and books. (Proust!). Becca, his second-in-command, was very responsive. Not for everyone, perhaps, but I had a great time. Recommended.

Great location and interesting flat as you might see already in the pictures. Very quiet. Also being able to watch your pictures on a 4k TV when you get back from sight seeing is fun. The bed is very comfortable. The patio and garden make your stay even more enjoyable.

Amazing location. Would not recommend for animal lovers or vegetarians, but if you're looking for a unique experience in a spacious flat - this is it!

Cons: The space: the photos of the listing are not representative of the very-unusual character of this listing--which is (to put it lightly) esoteric and (to be direct) creepy. A few examples: the focal point of the living room is a giant tank with 2 large and very-active Asian carp, whom you will be asked to feed. Also: the listing is filled with a wide array of taxidermied animals, and the walls are covered in portraits of those animals when they were hunted and killed. There is also a painting of Satan. So, basically: be aware of what this space is, and do not book this place if you are looking for a restful oasis. -Check in: Check in was botched. The host forgot to leave me keys, so I was locked out of the house when I arrived, and had to beg a neighbor to let me in. Pros: -Location: is very great, near GG Park. -Amenities: The house has a very nice kitchen and bathtub.

Response from Lawrence:
I apologize for the botched check in but I was in Brazil and the last guest forgot to place the key in the lock box. So I am leaving an extra key in the lock box. I am very pleased that you found my place creepy because I felt the same way when I met you when I returned after your check out time.

The place is as advertised - as stated, there is lots of taxidermy, including several bear skin rugs, so it's important that you know that going in. Lawrence was very easy to deal with - he communicated quickly with me and was very thorough. The location was amazing - a block away from the Golden Gate Park, a Whole Foods and even a cool pinball arcade.

The apartment is spacious and beautiful. As the post states there's a lot of taxidermy so if that sort of thing bothers you, this may not be the place for you. That said, it is a great location and I really enjoyed staying there.
