My husband and I stayed for a week. The room was comfortable and the other guests in the house were courteous. We rented a car, but with a little planning we could have used only public transportation for all our San Fran touring, since there are several close bus stops and one metro/train stop. The bus ride to downtown is a bit long, but it is worth not having to find and pay for parking.
Our room next to the kitchen was quite nice and Victor, our host at the time, extremely friendly. The BART and bus-stations are in short walking-distance (5-10min). Really enjoyable stay overall!
Our 29 days at Maria's place were comfortable. The house was clean and convenient for our needs with buses and the BART very near by. And the price was right.
What you see is what you get.
Although what you don't see is all the flaws that this room has! The window that does not open easily, the dirt that's everywhere and not to mention the backyard! ( but don't worry, the neighbors backyard is MUCH worse, you do have a view over it all every morning you wake up). There is also a raccoon.... When the light went down the owner (MARIA) told us it was our fault! :o ... than it took her 3 hours to get it back on because the switch is in another room! everything Naomi said about this house is true, nobody had any problems with her and still Maria says she was a pain in the ass... We couldn't be in the kitchen after 9.30 because Maria's boyfriend wanted to eat his spaghetti there (every day).
If you want a house that's even worse please do check out the other house up the street from this house..
I will never stay at one of Maria's houses ever again. We left San Francisco 11 days earlier than planned. Airbnb helped us alot and got us our money back for the rest of the stay, thank you for that!
Just as a guest wants positive travel experience, a host wants to have positive hosting experience. My experience hosting Audrey and Bob was abysmal. Their third companion Miriam seemed alright. Audrey made the reservation several months in advanced which blocked the room calendar and disallowed others to make reservation. I honored her reservation despite the number of interns who wanted the room for 4 consecutive months. I was very tempted to cancel Audrey’s reservation, but I prevailed. Upon their arrival there was already an issue regarding excessive kitchen use and noise in the house. Instead of helping me resolve the problem,she and Rob exacerbated it. She wanted to socialize beyond the curfew hours and I told them that their behavior was disturbing the other Airbnb guests.
Unbeknownst to me, Audrey’s informal SF internship fell through, and she wanted to cancel her reservation a few days after arrival. Due to my strict cancellation policy, I did not agree to a refund. However, I tried to help them land an internship through friends and colleagues in the art field. She was not really interested in pursuing an internship. She wanted to return to Las Vegas to party land thereafter, she found problem after problem about the room and the house. For example, she caused the blackout in the room due to an appliance that she plugged into the charger. I noted to her that improper disposal of garbage will attract animal critters yet she inappropriately discarded her waste. Audrey claimed that Airbnb refunded her. That may be the case, but Airbnb did not refund her from my payout. In retrospect, if she wanted a hotel experience, she should have stayed in a hotel.
I have had over 200 hundred guests who have given me positive reviews. Audrey’s review and a few other negative ones are aberrations. With this summer’s experience, I realize now that it is necessary to gain more knowledge about potential guests, in order to avoid a personality clash, and to know that a guest truly understands the house rules and is sincere in adhering to them. I also realize that companions of primary guest must be held accountable,otherwise their behavior remains unchecked, and they become unruly. I am sometimes an absentee host, and I rely that my guest has the maturity and is a good person that I can entrust her/him to stay at my house. Unfortunately,Audrey and Rob were not those types of guests.
The is a good vibe at Maria's house. There were young students staying there during their internships in San Francisco. We had a great time talking to them.
The room was very spacious, very clean and very comfortable, Maria is also a great host.
The house is close to the metro and buses, and the city center only 10 minutes away on the metro.
On the first day we walked all the way to the Embarcadero through mission st. It took us few hours but it was great.
I'll definitely stay there again.
The room was very confortable.
Maria always take care of us. Whatever we need she was always there.
The house was clean and very interesting as I could meet people from everywhere.
The location was good, close to Glenpark BART. I would recommend it to anybody.
Excellent host, very accommodating and friendly.
