Amrita and her housemate Bruna made a real effort to make us feel welcome in this fantastic apartment. We recieved some great local tips. I can not speak more highly of the location and how easy it is to walk to several great shopping and eating areas (Hayes Valley, Divisdero and Fillmore were our favourites). The room and entire place has great character. Would certainly recommend.
Second time staying here, and enjoyed my stay both times very much. Nice room in beautiful apartment in Edwardian house in interesting neighborhood - many good food options locally, and not too far to walk to town / the Mission / many areas. Amrita is a charming and helpful hostess, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Had a great stay at Amritas home. We didn't get to meet Amrita, but she was happy to answer our text/calls if need be. The apartment is in such a good location; lots of restaurants and bars near. The bed was super comfy and the room cosy. Loved your home! Thanks for having us!
Stayed one night at Amrita's place. The room was spacious and bed was comfortable. Short walking distance to the painted ladies and about a 30 minute walk to Mission District. While we did not get to meet Amrita personally, her friend Matthew checked in to make sure everything was ok. Amrita was responsive and sent all check in information prior to arrival. Neighborhood was safe and lovely. Thank you, Amrita!
I've experienced some great stays with Airbnb but this was the undisputed best! Amrita is a wonderful host, thoughtful and friendly - I felt like I was staying with family. I've traveled to San Francisco perhaps 100 times in my life and before yesterday I had always seen the city from a hotel in the tourist areas - the Hayes Valley area, where one will find Alamo Square and the famed "Painted Ladies" Victorian homes, is a look at the "real" San Francisco.
I like to use Airbnb because I get the chance to interact with people, see neighborhoods, and experience a city - Amrita delivered all that and more. Thanks!
Amrita was a gracious, hospitable and thoughtful host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amriat's home. My wife and I stayed at Amrita's "Wonderful Edwardian Flat" from August (phone number hidden) and August (phone number hidden). During our initial stay, we arrived at the San Jose airport later than scheduled at night and encountered difficulty in arranging tranportation to San Francisco. Being thoughtful and considerate, Amrita called to ensure that we arrived safely and prepared something for us to eat, due to our late arrival. She warmly welcomed us when we arrived, relieving our stressful journey. We were made to feel at home immediately!
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Smith,
On this gloomy San Francisco morning your words brought sunshine to my day. It was my joy to host you and get to meet your wonderful son Omar. My friends from Santa Curz were so impressed with him that they wanted to drive to SF to meet the two of you. This home is always open to you. Much love, Amrita
