Patti was a great host. She was incredibly detailed in her instructions leading up to our stay, and was extremely responsive with any questions that came up. The place is as described in the listing, and comfortably fit four adults. The place is very close to the West Portal Muni station so you have great public transit options to downtown, but the place is also very easy for taxis/uber to pick up as well. I recommend staying here with Patti.
The host had specific directions to the apartment and that was very helpful. I think putting the address more often in the directions would help.
The apartment was welcoming and charming. Decorated beautifully! I would highly recommend this apartment and the area. Easy access to cute restaurants and public transport.
patti was a great host-- very prompt and helpful over email. she answered all of my questions and responded quickly. the apartment was lovely and as described, and all directions (especially parking) were helpful. this is a cozy place and my family and i had a great time there.
Great apartment, great neighbourhood, great location. We loved our stay at Patti's place. It is close to heaps of restaurants, close to a good transport hub, and a really nice apartment (with parking) to boot. We'd recommend it to anyone.
Patti was a great host, very easy to work with and communicated well. The apartment was beautiful, very clean and had everything my guests needed. We live in the neighborhood and were so glad to find an Airbnb close by for our out of town guests. Apartment is very convenient to West Portal Ave with fantastic shops and restaurants and quick public transportation to downtown SF.
What a fantastic little place! Clean and characterful with all the amenities you could need. A great, quiet location, within easy reach of the rest of the city. It was fantastic to be able to put on some records and listen to some childhood favourites! Patti was immensely helpful and quick to respond, the epitome of a gracious host! Thanks Patti for letting us stay over.
About the Host, Patti
I am clean, friendly, even tempered. English is my first language but I also speak Spanish. I am a professional chef and I love to cook. The apartment is private, colorful and fun and the kitchen is set up for cooking. If you like hard bop from the 1960's there are plenty of disks to choose from. You can check out some of my food at dub dub dub pattiwagon biz.
