Thanks again Shelly for staying with us through some serious downpours! Wanted to address 2 things from your review that I feel are important for others to know in regards to your experience with transport and restaurants.
Transportation - We always encourage our guests to ask us any questions especially in regards to things like transportation system. The bus is not the best way to get Downtown from our place. The J-train is less than a minute walk and then it’s a straight shot. Never more than 30mins tops. Now, if you were going to the Marina District or the Golden Gate Bridge, yes that’s a much lengthier trip and in those cases we advise guests to use Lyft, Uber or JumpBike. The car ride is 15mins to Downtown as we are right next to both the I-101 and I-280. Another option would have been to walk 2mins to the 36 bus which can take you to the the BART station in Glen Park, which is even faster to downtown, around 20-30mins door to door. When we need to head to Oakland, we get a $3 Lyft ride to the BART station and can be in Oakland 35-45mins. All in all there are 3-4 apps including (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps that display all the best routes/buses/trains/times in real time to ease up any confusion or frustration (Routsey, Transport, MTA MUNI). Our official public ratings are “Excellent for Transit, Very Walkable and Very Bikable”.
Restaurants - Our area has 2-3 of the top rated/most sought after restaurants in the entire city. There’s about 10-15 INCREDIBLE restaurants/coffee shops/ bars less than a 15min walk door to door. On our listing there is a Guidebook where we have a robust set of choices for our guests to check out for planning ahead if a food-centered trip is a primary element to experiencing the city. There’s 3-4 apps that can showcase all the best spots in our neighborhood and the surrounding neighborhoods (Yelp, OpenTable, Eater, (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps). We also have tons of the most updated SF fine dining magazines in the space. We take care in updating our listing all the time as new places continue to pop up like the great pizza place that’s a 2min walk from our front door.
We hope this will help other guests in the future and thanks again for the feedback on your experience!
