The home was immaculate and in a great location, walking distance from shops and restaurants in a beautiful neighborhood. Lydia was attentive to our needs and had someone on call when she wasn't available. The garden out back gets a nice breeze.
Lydia's home is very quiet and beautiful. The flat was clean and cozy. We love this place, especially the lovely garden! The location is close to everywhere, like Golden Gate Park, within 15 minutes drive. And I think the Golden Gate Park is one of the most beautiful places in San Francisco. Everything goes smoothly and we have a wonderful time there. Absolutely, highly recommend!
I would love to stay here again. The location couldn't be better. We stayed here for almost 3 months with our 2 year old. The library is just next door, there are two playgrounds close by and lots of shops and restaurants a couple of minutes away. The apartment has a dishwasher, a washing machine and a dryer which were essential for us.
Finding a parking was quite easy, always a slot on the street. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. I can't recommend this place enough.
My mother, aunt, and cousin came from England and stayed in Lydia's beautiful flat. The place was very pretty with a lovely garden/patio. In addition, the neighborhood is wonderful. You are walking distance to everything you might need and close to public transportation. The best thing about the place though is Lydia! She was so warm and helpful. My mother is easily confused and we needed to call on Lydia several times with questions or issues and she was always there to help and so warm and nice about everything. I would highly recommend a stay at this lovely home!
This was a perfect place for us. It met our expectations in every way. It was clean and comfortable and very nice to each have our own room. Just half a block from Castro St. and yet very quiet at night. The free street parking was a plus, especially since my friend and I were coming from different directions and we had 2 cars. Neither of us like driving in the city - and it was easy to take public transportation or catch a cab when we weren't walking. We were especially delighted with the quality and proximity of restaurants. We hope to stay again next year.
Lydia and her daughter were great! They were very responsive and helpful. We absolutely loved this place! It was very clean and well furnished. The pictures are very accurate description of the place. They also have a great outdoor patio and super cute garden to hang out. The location was also great. Walking distance to cute boutiques, restaurants, and a convenient Walgreens that was across the street. Lydia was also very accommodating to schedule. Also, they have Netflix you can use! I would highly recommend this place!!
I enjoyed my stay in Lydia's flat. It was clean, quiet and comfy. I really felt at home, especially with the wifi and the Netflix. I always found parking within two blocks of the flat. The neighborhood itself was nice as well. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby.
