NO SMOKING AND NO PETS PLEASE!
We live upstairs with our 2 children -- please no drugs, alcohol or inappropriate behavior. Please don't smoke pot. This is smoking, and we have a no smoking home. Our bedroom and the bedroom of our children is directly above the in-law, so the smoke will travel through the heat vents up to our space. If you plan to smoke, please do not rent our unit!
Quiet hours: 11 PM to 7 AM
Please respect quiet hours. We are a busy family -- 2 daughters in elementary school and 2 parents who work full time. We value our sleep and we will come and knock on the door if you're loud past 11 PM.
Please use good common sense when it comes to safety. Keep the front gate completely closed and all doors locked at all times. If we need to leave the keys in a lockbox for you, we'll ask you ahead of time to provide us with a code.
Do not block our driveway or the sidewalk in front of the house. SF Dept. of Parking and Traffic may ticket or tow your car.
Ron and Cherie were gracious, expert hosts. The suite was as advertised, wonderfully located, clean, quiet, and comfortable. We would gladly return, and would recommend it to others.
Beautiful inlaw apartment, good and safe location, accommodating hosts. It was nice to wake up to such a lovely backyard, eat our breakfast, and be on our way to explore this city that we love! Ron and Cherie sent us video instructions on how to access the apartment, very helpful, and it helped ease any potential anxieties. The apt was very comfortable, the bed was comfy with clean sheets, we were able to use their room heater, and they even offered their pack and play for our 10mth old. We also were able to use their pass to the Academy of Sciences museum, which is a great activity to do and is seriously just blocks away! Their home is right next to the beautiful golden gate park; absolutely amazing! And Burma super star, one of my favorite restaurants, is literally a 5 min walk from here!!! Trader Joe's, a favorite amongst people from hawaii (esp since we do not have one there) is relatively close, so one afternoon we took a stroll and came back with way too many items! This was the first time we traveled with our baby and it was a very new experience, but Ron and Cherie made our visit to SF even more wonderful then what we could have expected. Hope to come back and stay here again.
I had a marvelous stay at Ron and Cherie's apartment. Thank you for making this great space available to out-of-town visitors. Everything was great from the initial contacts and instructional video through the end of my stay. The apartment is very comfortable, clean, in a safe location, and quiet. The backyard plantings are an extra treat. The location is terrific. The apartment is a short walk through a residential neighborhood to Golden Gate Park or Presidio Park and all they have to offer, to coffee shops, farmers markets and and grocery stores, to Green Apple Books, to the rich variety of restaurants and shops on Geary and Clement, and to the bus stops to get anywhere else easily. San Francisco is such a walkable city, that if you like walking a little further, it is easy to get to the Pacific, Ocean Beach, Lands End, the Coastal Trail, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Palace of Arts, the Marina, Buena Vista Park, Haight area, and more right from the apartment door. This lovely place is the epitome of why airbnb is such a perfect way to visit other places. Thank you, Ron and Cherie.
Ron and Cherie are the perfect hosts! The apartment is clean, spacious and very private. The 38 Geary bus stop is located a few blocks away and the bus goes straight downtown. It was very convenient for my meetings during the day and quiet at night to unwind from the busy day. I had a great time, and am thankful to Ron and Cherie!
We enjoyed our stay in Ron & Cherie's apartment very much. The apartment fit the description well. It was clean, quiet, in a great location, and the hosts are super responsive. It felt private and we could easily come and go with no problems.
Side note for new SF travellers: It can be a challenge to find parking in the city, but we usually found something near the apt.
Thanks Ron & Cherie! We'd definitely stay again!
Ron and Cheri were great hosts! Super quiet, gave us specific directions to their home and even let us have a later check out (as we had a 4 hour window between stays).
The accomodations were cozy and clean. We were within two major streets for the bus and restaurants. I recommend going to the Cinderella Cafe, Velo Rouge Cafe and Uncle Boys Burgers.
I would not hesitate to recommend them!
Ron and Cherie's place is nice and clean and very efficient. The location is ideal because it's in a quiet neighborhood but the public transportation is not far away and restaurants and markets are nearby. We strongly recommended it to any visitor to SF.
In the 18 years we have lived in San Francisco, we have never fallen out of love with the diversity and access to the great outdoors our neighborhood provides. We are avid hikers, cyclists, and runners and our 2 children also have a love of outdoor activities and a thirst to discover the cultural institutions in our back yard. We are food enthusiasts and love the fresh, local options and can help you scope out one of the many local farmer's markets to stock our apartment's full kitchen. We can guide you in "off the beaten path" experiences or getting into all the tourist attractions as well. We love to travel and have made many National Parks our vacation destination, as well as adventures in South America and Europe.
We live upstairs from this apartment and you will likely hear the pitter patter of little feet from time to time.
