Sinta-se em casa em São Francisco! Ótimos lugar para vc fazer sua própria comida e descansar. Muito limpo, cama ótima, varanda com churrasqueira elétrica, cozinha especial para fazer sua comida!! Tudo muito bem cuidado e limpo!
Arthur provided quick responses to all my questions and even let us check in early. We appreciated the fresh coffee beans, beer and Proseco. The apartment was gorgeous and well situated for walking to the Haight, Castro, Noe Valley and Mission. Great restaurants and market down the street.
We had a great stay in Arthur's apartment. It was extremely comfortable and very well appointed, with a huge amount of space. The kitchen was so well stocked with appliances and utensils, that it was almost better equipped than ours at home! We slept really well in the beds, and the bathrooms had ample high quality towels and toiletries.
Arthur has gone out of his way to provide useful information for his guests with a file containing shopping and restaurant recommendations, plus an iPad loaded with comprehensive information about San Francisco. There is also a desktop computer available for those that need it.
When we arrived we were a little concerned that the apartment might be rather noisy as it is located on the corner of a busy junction. However, at night it was extremely quiet and our sleep was never disturbed.
Before we arrived in San Francisco a friend recommended that we use Lyft for getting around. We downloaded the app on our phone, and used them several times each day. We never had to wait more than 3 or 4 minutes for a car, and all the drivers were friendly and helpful. The charges seemed very reasonable compared to usual taxi fares. To be recommended over public transport.
Five stars! Incredible place! It's everything it's described as, and more. The size of the apartment is really quite amazing. Arthur is a wonderful host who responds quickly and makes you feel very welcome.
The location is perfect too - close to all other neighbourhoods, and nestled in the beautiful Haight district.
Would recommend this place to any of my friends and family. Wonderful stay.
Great apartment and great location. Really enjoyed our stay. Good access to local amenities and public transport. We had a small electrical fault and Arthur was able to fix it straight away. Really helpful and friendly. Highly recommend it.
We spent 6 nights in Arthur's fabulous penthouse in the cool Haight area right after Christmas. We arrived earlier than the official check in time and Arthur was very accommodating in allowing us access to the apartment early. We had some issues with the door code because we were early, but he was at the end of the phone to help (even though it was the morning after Christmas). The apartment itself is very spacious, really light filled and airy, and extremely comfortable- a home away from home. The kitchen is well equipped if you do want to eat in. The third bedroom/ study which has a pull out sofa bed works very well and the bed is very comfortable. The apartment was very clean, had good quality linens and towels, robes, bathroom products, laundry detergent, and also quite a few kitchen basics like oil, salt and pepper, some herbs and spices, vinegar, coffee (there is a drip filter coffee maker). Wifi worked well as did tvs etc.
The area is great. Much better than being downtown near Union square. Walking distance to the famous Bi-Rite creamery and grocery which is great for ice cream, but also meat, seafood, deli, fresh fruit and veg, groceries and all other manner of gourmet foods. There are quite a lot of great restaurants and cafes in walking distance-there is a list of them in the apartment. It is really easy to get to anywhere else in the city on Muni just a block away, but Alamo square, haight and Ashbury and Buena Vista Park are all within walking distance.
We loved this place!
The pictures don't really do this property justice it's fantastic! It's also a very large, very comfortable place to call home (albeit temporarily). I stayed here with a work colleague who had never used AirBnB and he was blown away by the level of luxury and location all for less that a hotel room would have been, he's now a convert!
We found the place spotless and as described and Arthur the host made sure we had all the relevant info to gain access as well as some local info etc. There's even a bike to use should you wish.
If it's available I'll stay here on my next trips to the city.
