Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had an amazing stay in Rosy's victorian house. The interior design features unique contemporary classical fusion and made our living experience an esthetic enjoyment. The location is also great, walking distance to Alamo square, the painted ladies and a great deli. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and anybody who wants an artist and relaxing stay in SF.

  • The place is great and you can't beat the location. Rosy provided a great list of things to do and restaurants to check out that made our experience that much better. I'd recommend this place anytime.

  • Just got back from a big trip to the States, Rosy's place was the first we stayed in and OMG it is awesome!

    Amazing location, the place is simply incredible and we always felt looked after by Rosy. Damn, i miss that place already!

    Just stay here, your holiday will be made all the better for it. Thanks Rosy!! x

  • We usually stay at the Hotel Huntington when we go to SF, but a hotel seemed like a bad idea for a week in the city with our two teenage sons. Rosy's place was the perfect solution. She and her husband were very helpful -- not just in things like recommending restaurants but right down to very important things like telling us how to get around on the Muni. The apartment itself was a wonderful mix of old and new, and, once we understood the Muni, we realized that the neighborhood was fantastically located -- close to things but still quiet and comfortable. I'd highly recommend Rosy's place. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • Well, what can I say? I had an incredible stay at Rosy's place. It combines the charm of a San Franciscan Victorian with a clean and eclectic decorative aesthetic. Getting in was easy. Rosy and her husband made what can often be awkward and transactional process a true pleasure. Before long we we're talking like old friends. When it comes down to it, I'd recommend her space without reservation. And as long as they'll have me I'll never stay anywhere else in San Fran.

  • My best friend Amy and I stayed at Rosy’s for four glorious nights in late September/early October. It was our first Air bnb experience as well as our first time in San Fransisco, and we most certainly hit the jack pot with Rosy’s stunning home. If I could rate our experience in San Fransisco out of 10 I would give it an 11.

    Not only was the apartment breathtakingly gorgeous, it was also spotlessly clean, extremely spacious and in a fabulous location; walking distance to some seriously amazing restaurants, café’s and shops. Amy and I are a little interior design obsessed, and we thought that Rosy’s place looked so lovely in the photos we had seen prior to our arrival. The photos do not do Rosy’s justice by any means. In the flesh, it is even more beautiful and the attention to detail is unbelievable.

    Rosy is an absolute genius, and super cool to boot. She gave us a list of all her favourite local places to get coffee and food and every single place we tried was completely delicious. Amy and I both agreed that the French bakery ‘Tartine’, in the Mission district, is hands down the best food experience of our lives, and a must for everyone visiting San Fran.

    I wish that we had been able to stay longer in San Francisco, so that we could spend more time hanging out with Rosy and exploring the City. We will just have to go back again!

    Rosy, our sincere thanks for making our time at your home so memorable. We had the trip of a lifetime. You are our Sibella Court =)

  • Rosy and her husband were gracious and lovely hosts. The apartment was perfect in its location (great neighborhood), comfort, beauty and convenience. Rosy's style is amazing but there is much more to their home than just the beautiful decor and amenities.

    Our family arrived late at night after a long day of travel and they took the time to give us a home tour, show us a stocked refrigerator with staples, including much needed coffee, and they happily answered countless questions about their home, the neighborhood and everything a visitor would want to know about the city.

    The beds were comfortable with plenty of blankets and the dining room was a favorite for the four of us to congregate, read, and share meals.

    Rosy even contacted me halfway through our visit to make sure all was going well.

    I would highly recommend staying here to anyone going to San Francisco and hope to return some day!

  • A wonderful place and a great host! The apartment was beautiful - a great experience to stay in such a beautifully renovated and decorated Victorian house in a nice and very convenient area in San Francisco. Walking distance to many areas such as Hayes, Mission, Castro and Haight. And going downtown was also easy.

    Rosy was a great host! Very welcoming and offering many good suggestions for restaurants, fun neighbourhoods to visit etc.

    The four of us that stayed at Rosy´s were really happy with our four day stay!

  • Wow. What an amazing house. San Fran is cool, but this house is cooler thanks to Rosy's amazing taste and sense of style.

    It's in a brilliant spot, centrally located so it's walking distance from almost everything worth seeing and doing.

    This entire floor apartment is everything you see in the photos and more. The stunning marble kitchen and huge dining area are meticulously furnished with items form the Victorian era. But only if they're white of course.

    The front bedroom is enormous, complete with an incredible bay window, comfortable bed with crisp, clean linen and a whole lounge area furnished with a relaxing designer sofa and occasional chairs.

    And let's not forget Rosy. Make sure she's there to check you in because what she doesn't know about the restaurants, bars, clothing stores and markets in San Fran isn't with knowing. Plus she's just an awesome chick to meet and get to know and she makes a great espresso if you ask nicely ;-)

    It's more than a place to stay while you experience San Fran, it's one of the highlights of your trip.
