  • I cannot recommend this location enough. Beautiful home with great views. Everything you need is a short walk away; including Alamo Square park. Daily walks to this park provided gorgeous views and time to wind down watching the many strolling dogs and their owners. The penthouse was the perfect home away from home. We were often surprised with treats that Glenn would leave. The treats from the Russian Bakery were especially delicious.
    Glenn is a gracious host who is extremely knowledgeable about the city. He has suggestions for many walks that give a better feel of the City than you would get if you were to stay at a touristy hotel. You feel that the house is yours, yet Glenn is just a text away for anything that you need. When we visit San Francisco again, we will adjust our travel schedule to match availability at this wonderful house. Glenn truly cares about his guests. Thank you Glenn for letting us feel as if we were San Franciscans ourselves.

  • Glenn was a wonderful host, the apartment was very comfortable, and pretty much self sufficient. Glenn was available whenever we had a question, had lots of tips and suggestions and even have us some amazing bread and goats cheese. Just because he is a lovely host and wanted us to enjoy some local cranberry and walnut loaf amazingness
    The wifi was great which is important as much of our work is online.
    Great apartment and would recommend

  • Glenn is a wonderful host,very thoughtful. We decided to travel in San Francisco for business with very tight time.glenn answered very quickly and gave me many good suggestions. The studio is not far from downtown.take bus 5 can reach all the spots in market street. Only walking distance you can have cinema/jazz place/ super market/ grocery store around.
    The sun light is quite strong during the day,if you are not very easy to sleep with much lights,you can prepare a eyeshade. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a good meal.
    A separate bathroom and closet are very comfortable.
    We had really a great experience staying in this apartment. Next time in San Francisco will come back to Glenn for sure!

  • Glenn has a fantastic space and would be accommodating for a person (or couple) who is new to the city as well as a guest who knows the city well. We so enjoyed our time at this beautiful studio and Glenn made our stay all the more enjoyable! He was a gracious host who often went above and beyond our expectations! We couldn't have been happier and highly recommend Glenn as a host. Not to mention, the house is situated in a fantastic location. Thanks again Glenn!

  • Another fantastic Air BnB host. Glenn could not have been more helpful and considerate. He has thought of all possible needs for his guests and was extremely quick in responding to any communication. He went out of his way to provide information and books when he discovered my interest in architecture and made some absolutely great suggestions in places to see. I can't wait to return. I would not hesitate to book any accommodation Glenn hosted.
