We stayed at Zhaos apartment for 5 days and truly enjoyed the stay. The room and the apartment are very nice, clean and comfortable. The apartment is located in a quiet, safe and central location and thus ideal to discover the city. We did not meet Zhao in person, but he was very caring and responsive. We would love to stay at his place again and recommend it to 100%.
Our host made it very easy to access his listing although he was out of town. Everything was very clean and in great order. The neighborhood was great with a bus stop, 24hr diner, and Target all very close by. My only complaint was that the bed we slept in had no top sheet. Other than that, it was a great place to stay in and I'd highly recommend it.
Zhao was an incredible, accommodating host. We arrived late Friday and left early on Monday, and had the place to ourselves. His home was beautiful, exactly as described and very conveniently located in San Francisco. I can't say enough good things about the property, and would absolutely stay again if I am ever in town. Thank you Zhao for making our stay so clean, comfortable, and convenient!
Unfortunately I never met Zhao (he's brilliant btw) but the apartment has all the trimmings a traveler could wish for... high speed wifi, quality washer & dryer, fully equipped kitchen, Netflix and more... Superb location (at the top of a hill) with public transport just around the corner. You can grab a bus to most areas of San Fran from Zhao's place. It's very safe. The only negative (sorry Zhao but i have to say this) is the large bus depot/service station situated next door - it's very noisy from about 3.30am onwards. If you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs. Other than that, i recommend Zhao's place 100%!
Zhao and Jennifer were amazing hosts and made me feel at home. I had some really delicious home made cookies there. Zhao was really accomodating about the checkin/checkout times, that really helped as I was shifting to another place on a working day. Everything was as described. I would definitely recommend the place
Zhao was very welcoming and made sure that I had a great stay. Everything was as described and I would definitely recommend staying here!
Zhao has a nice apartment and an even nicer personality. He allowed me to come and go with no problems.
