When I walked into Scotts Apt. I was surprised and delighted to find a bright, clean and very artistically decorated apt. It is much better than the pictures in Airbnb. Tons of room to relax and enjoy all the views. I found everything I needed and slept on a very confortable bed.
Thanks to Scotts instructions I was able to find a drug store and a grocery store immediately and was able to purchase my immediate necessities. The quaint and neighborhood so full of "local color" added to its charm.
Scott wasn´t able to meet us in person to deliver the keys but had his very friendly neighbor Tom help us with that.
The place was really nice and the location was perfect. We enjoyed the great view from the living room and the fact that the apartment was (at least for us who decided to walk everywhere) in the middle of everything we wanted to see and do: from experiencing the old hippe area of Height-Ashbury, to Castro, The Mission, Pier 39, Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park etc.
Overall we are happy that we decided to stay at Scotts place.
Scott's place is great overall. He was easy to communicate with and it's a nice large one bedroom apartment in a central location.
Scotts cancellation policy is strict so be sure to note this prior to booking! Even though I booked the space less than a week prior to arrival and requested an amendment to my reservation within a couple days from even making the reservation, he still charged me 50% of the days I did not stay in the space. So be sure to book carefully.
Scott was very receptive and prompt to respond to emails regarding questions about the apartment as well as meeting us to provide the key to his apartment in San Francisco. We loved the layout of the apartment and found it spacious for our needs. The location was fantastic and within a couple of miles to shopping and excellent restaurants. Parking was very easy and nightly we found parking on the street next to Scotts apartment.
All that said there were some downsides: the apartment, while overall lovely did need a good clean. As previously mentioned by another reviewer, the shower curtain was very moldy and in need of replacement. The bathroom in general needed some love.
Very nice place. It was handed over to us exactly at the time mentioned. There was no guide for wifi, but we were able to contact Scott quickly to resolve this. The place is overall clean and well maintained. The location is central of San Francisco and many buses and groceries store are available nearby.
