This is a no smoking property which means anywhere on the property there is no smoking. Other than that the rules are ones of respecting the apartment and the other tenants and guests that at the building.
Appreciate if you remove your shoes in the apartment.
We are sensitive to our impact on the environment so appreciate lights being turned off when not in use, recycling and shutting off the water when not in use. California is having a drought. We provide organic biodegradable soaps for our guests use.
There are tenants that live below so please be mindful as we love to have bamboo floors at the expense that sound does carry more.
For check out, please have your dishes cleaned, garbage/recycling out, wet towels hung up and the apartment left in a good condition.
Carol was very welcoming and her flat was very clean, spacious, very well decorated and the area is very quiet at night.
Carol was quick to reply to my original inquiry and very communicative leading up to, during and after our stay. Her apartment is exactly as described, and the location is amazing! Such a pretty neighborhood and so close to all the happening spots on Castro Street. Carol is a welcoming host with excellent taste. I would love to be her guest again.
Nice cozy place, very convenient to business around the valley. I travelled last minute and Carol was very accommodating, even came by and tidied the place up and made after the first night!
We enjoyed staying at Carole's apartment. It was very clean and neat...just like the pictures. The location was perfect. We could easily walk downtown. Carole was very communicative and helpful and responded quickly to my emails. I would not hesitate staying here again.
Carol's apartment is as pictured and described. It has a clean retro look that's more welcoming than a hotel. It was perfect for my last minute business trip. It's also a ten minute walk through a quiet residential area to restaurants. And while I did not meet Carol, she was very responsive and attentive. Definitely recommend her place if you're looking to stay in the area.
it's my first time to use airbnb and carol just leave us a wonderful experience. It is a lovely house with everything your need. just make sure to be quiet after 10pm.
