Everything about this place was so peaceful that it felt like being on vacation. Mostly because the listing itself is cozy and the backyard was so lush with vegetation. It helps that the deck and hot tub look onto this greenery in addition to partial downtown views. It was great soaking in those views from the hot tub, it felt like a retreat. It amazed me how clean the place was despite notice of having pets.
Host was very prompt with communication and flexible with the booking request. Definitely recommend this listing!
This was our second time staying at Ilana's place. Very comfy!
Had a wonderful time at Ilana's house. The house is comfortable and has all the amenities that we needed. I enjoyed staying in a house (felt like a home) as opposed to a hotel. Ilana's welcoming gifts were a nice touch too.
Illana was a charming and thoughtful host. Her home is stylish and comfortable. Her dog is adorable
Ilana went out of her way to accommodate us when another Airbnb listing had to cancel on us at short notice.
The apartment was comfortable, clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. It's in a good location, about 100m from a bus stop with frequent buses to central SF, and also easy to connect to the BART for the airport. There are some great restaurants and cafes just around the corner on Mission St; El Taqueria and Mission Pie were our favourites.
Staying here gave us the feeling that we were actually living in San Fransisco instead of just visiting as tourists. Highly recommended.
Ilana was very friendly, and has a comfortable & homely apartment, we recommend it!
Ilana's home was stupendous. If it is available, I highly suggest checking in with Ilana to determine availability of her rental. I lived in SF for 6 years and her home is in a very desirable, vibrant, exclusively SF neighborhood. My girlfriend and I were both disappointed that our stay was for one night only. Hopefully our stay will be longer, next time. Ilana in a magnificent host. She had a packet with insight that only a local could provide: shopping, dining, nightlife, etc. Very, very helpful, even for a former SF resident like myself! (Thanks Ilana!)
Very nice in every way. Great location. I would certainly recommend staying there.
Best parts: charming decor, well appointed, great location (easy walk to Precita Cafe, park for leashed dogs, produce and convenience mart), parking relatively easy, comfortable, fireplace, nice firm bed with electric foot-warmer option, wifi, flat street, welcoming treats, pretty city view from upper terrace deck, nice to have option to hot tub.
Only drawback was the noise of the neighbors using the garage door. But the only place you would hear that garage door opening is in the living room so not a big deal.
We would definitely recommend the Tree House!
Ilana's apartment is absolutely gorgeous, within a great house in Bernal Heights. The backyard is an incredible retreat, with a large sundeck and a great hot tub. I arrived to a bottle of wine, fresh fruit was dropped off during the week, and the gas fireplace really ties together the livingroom.
