We had a wonderful stay in this spacious, comfortable apartment. Everything that was offered was exactly as advertised. The Host, Beth was in immediate contact when required to help with questions prior to the stay. We were met by Beth, (although this really wasn't required as the details emailed to us were excellent), it was a very nice touch. The little extras like cut towers, fresh coffee beans, fruit and chocolate didn't go un-noticed!
The loft is an easy walk from the BART on 24th and Mission, busses are easily accessible from Mission street to downtown, or even directly from 24th street once you find out how! The food in the area is excellent.
We would definitely recommend this accommodation to our friends.
This loft has been perfect for our 2 weeks stay. Very quiet, spacious and clean, we really enjoyed the private garden. Beth has been amazing and provided everything for a comfortable stay: plenty of towels and linens, soaps, and breakfast treats. She has been very responsive before and during our stay. Thanks Beth!
Fantastic loft appartment in the Mission. A great space to spend time. We had a wonderful christmas there.
We've just spent a week in this apartment. It is fantastic!! Its beauty and great layout is apparent in the pictures you can see. What you will not see in the pictures is that every little detail has been taken care of by Beth to make your stay a wonderful experience. One important thing is that its location is also very convenient. First, it is right in Balmy Alley, which is full of amazing murals. Second, it's just off 24th Street, one of the central streets in the Mission District. This means that you can come back late at night without concerns for your safety. This could be different in most other locations in the neighborhood. Third, it's a 10' walk from the BART, the most important means of transportation in the city.
Very highly recommended!!

You will not believe how you lucky you are to live on this street for your stay! It's a great area with tons of excellent food, and your hosts will ensure a comfortable stay. Beth was always available when I needed her for anything from accommodating an unexpected longer stay, to letting me know how to get around and pointing out great spas in the area! The cottage is so unique and beautiful. I can't wait until my next business trip back to CA so I can stay here again.
I had a great stay at the cottage. It is pleasant and quiet, with everything you could think of at hand. The decor is wonderful and the courtyard and living area comfortable and well appointed. Beth communicated all of the details I needed well before I arrived and was always available when I emailed, called, or texted her. I will try to stay here again when I travel to SF in the future.
Can't say enough positive words for Beth, the place and the location.
Beth is the one of the sweetest, thoughtful and enchanting persons
i've met. If she were in town, my home would be open to Beth and Geo
anytime. Time flies by when talking with Beth. My parents loved her
and so did everyone who met her.
The place is beautiful with a lovely backyard and as my parents said
(visiting from India), it was a home in foreign land. Beth
thoughtfully stocked the house with all amenities that make a short
stay feel too short. It is bang center in a wonderful part of the
mission excellently located in terms of culture, food and transport.
If you need to spend time in San Francisco, this is the place.
I can recommend this lovely modern loft. The Mission location was perfect for me and the apartment itself is tucked away on a really charming street. The hosts were great and communication was easy.
We have had a wonderfull stay at Beth and Geo's loft (which is by the way exactly as in the pictures). We didn't want to stay in the busy touristic city centre of San Francisco, but still be able to easily explore the city centre by public transport. This beautiful loft in the Mission District turned out to be perfect; no crowded streets and a BART station situated within 10 minutes walking distance.
Beth is a great host; she gave us a warm welcome and extensive information about the neighbourhood. During our stay we could easily reach her by phone.
We would certainly recommend Beth & Geo's loft as base for your citytrip to San Francisco!
This place is even more gorgeous than the pictures indicate. And Beth has thought of every last detail in making this loft a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. We were so happy here. Beth provides access to her Netflix account (there was too much to do to watch t.v. though!) and her iPod so you can throw open the back doors to the garden and dance to Hall and Oates. The garden is a wonderful place to relax with a glass of wine. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bed is super comfy. I could go on and on!!! Also important to note, the location is excellent. So many fun things to see and do right in the area. And it's close to many public transportation options. I highly recommend this space and the hosts. You won't want to leave!
