Interaction with Guests
I live upstairs and will meet you upon arrival then be available as much as you need or not. I've been exploring the neighborhood and take long walks with my dog so there's not much I haven't seen!
You will hear from many that this is the best neighborhood in SF. I chose this area for the many Victorian homes, the ease of mass transit, the walkability, and the abundance of parks,restaurants, and nightlife nearby.
As a recent transplant to this area I can tell you that the stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs are great here. I forget I have a car most of the time! Street parking is easy except for Wednesday 8-10 due to street cleaning.
Everything is a walk away or jump on the many bus lines that are at the corner. In minutes you can be at the Ferry Building, Marina, Presidio, Castro, UCSF Medical building, Market Street and Union Square. The N-Judah line also stops in nearby Cole Valley. I walk most places - post office, grocery store, pharmacy, bank, hardware, and clothing stores. The Magnolia Brew Pub is a block away with all their own draft beers. The number of walking distance hang-outs is amazing - Zam Zam is a fun martini bar, Sparrow is my new favorite farm to table restaurant and Club Deluxe offers pizza and live music every night! Plus Golden Gate Park is a walk away which means you can walk to all the museums and gardens there. I have books, maps and all the info you'll need to navigate your trip here.
Other Things to Note
I live upstairs and will be available for any questions - my friendly Australian Shepherd, Boo, may come say Hi
I'm OK with pets and the unit opens up to the backyard which makes it easy but my dog is out there so your pet must get along!
Sara was very helpful both in helping me get settled and in dealing with a problem that my daughter had, in spite of it being fairly late when this arose.
To me the photos made it look bigger than it is so it was adequate but not exactly roomy. I didn't really focus on the fact that there was a toaster oven not a microwave so the ability to cook anything was more limited than I was expecting.
Sara was really helpful and the place is super nice and cozy. My parents had a great time staying there, I wish I had a chance to meet Sara!
The apartment is exceptional with easy access, wonderful linens/towels and well stocked for coffee/tea. There is a tiny fridge w/ milk, juice and even a couple beers. Very clean and quiet. The pics and description on the add were exactly like what was posted. Sara made everything easy from getting the keys to allowing us to store our luggage a few hours after check out. Excellent location.
We LOVED Sara's home. It was simply wonderful! We had a few hiccups with the coffee maker and the fireplace, (Operator error;) and Sara and her daughter Sydney were so kind and attentive. We had so much fun in the neighborhood, exploring the park, going for coffees and drinks, and just generally soaking in the good energy of SF. I slept on the pull out bed and it was SO COZY. really really comfy and 2 people who are not a couple can easily stay here. Thank you Sara!
Great accommodation in a great location. Only 2 blocks from the main street in Haight Ashbury. Easy access to the city centre.
Sara was very hospitable and teally made sure we were comfortable.
This property is very attractive and very nicely situated near Haight, as portrayed in the photos and described. Sara was very attentive in communication with me, and nicely had a bottle of wine along with chocolates as a warm welcome. There were two formidable issues that arose during the stay that ought to be noted:
1) My adult daughter stayed with me the first night (Friday), and I confirmed with Sara that the pull out would be suitable for her. That night was awful, as the insulation between ceiling and apartment is very flimsy and Sara's daughter was entertaining until after 2 am. It was impossible to sleep and I had to call Sara after that, upon which sound gradually diminished. Rugs need to separate the floors, and/or stricter rules on that kind of commotion really needs to be enforced, given the premium the apartment commands.
2) Pullout is very uncomfortable (springs and flimsy mattress), and even my daughter could not really abide by it. Her sleep was severely disrupted by both this and the commotion, and it placed a distinct damper on the visit. I had communicated prior to visiting as to whether the pullout was suitable for a person, and was reassured that it was.
I am sorry to report these circumstances, as I think Sara is a gracious host. Second night, on my own sans daughter, was fine.
I'm very sorry - I was awakened by the noise as well. The disturbance was a one time issue and not an on-going problem. As for the pullout twin, I wonder if the extra mattress pad was used - since we didn't make up the bed, I'm not sure - no one else has ever complained before. When the tempurpedic pad is used, past guests have said the pullout is very comfortable. Norman and his daughter declined to have to bed made up in advance. I think Norm's second night was more the "norm"!
Best Airbnb experience yet! Sara is such a lovely, classy lady and so accommodating and welcoming. Being a 'doggie person' I absolutely adored her gorgeous dog Boo popping in for a visit now and then. The apartment is just a perfect location to experience all San Francisco has to offer. It's located right in the middle of all the action of Haight-Ashbury and you can access transport to all of SF's iconic travel hotspots easily just down the road. The local trendy little food market was just brilliant - it has the best array of groceries together with wines, beers and fantastic deli counter which also offers pre-prepared foods if you are keen to grab something tasty without having to visit a restaurant. The apartment was so comfortable and so beautifully decorated. Cannot rate Sara and her apartment (and of course Boo) highly enough. A 'must' stay for anybody visiting San Francisco!!
I'm a recent transplant to San Francisco from nearby Tiburon. I love walking my dog in the parks nearby and cycling the Bay area. I work with a contemporary ballet company and try to take advantage of the wealth of music, art galleries, and restaurants here. My home is a classic Edwardian built in 1904 yet my taste is modern and comfortable - can't wait to share it with you.
