Other Things to Note
Due to the fact that we have children, we are up early 7-8am and their footsteps can be heard from the apartment. Our place is ideal for early risers or hard sleepers who appreciate quiet evenings more than late mornings.
* No Pets - even visiting guests for a short time period.
* No Smokers allowed - even if smoking off premises.
The apartment is in a great location, walking distance to funky neighbourhoods - Haight, Castro, Hayes Valley and Mission - and public transport. The park and playground at the end of the street (meters from the apartment) is the best we found in the whole city. Brilliant for active kids. The apartment is spacious, stylish and packed with amenities. And Holly went over and above to ensure our toddler had plenty of toys and books on rainy days.
If you want to experience San Fran like a local, in a lovely apartment and great neighbourhood, then look no further.
Vi bodde väldigt bra hos Holly! Vi blev väl mottagna och det var väldigt lätt att kontakta henne. Holly hjälpte oss att ordna taxi till vår avfärd, något som vi verkligen uppskattade! Det var mysigt att sitta ute i den lilla trädgården. I området fanns många trevliga restauranger. Gatan var lugn och fin.
This was my first experience with Airbnb and it was completely positive. The apartment is spacious, spotless, full of light, tastefully decorated and thoughtfully equipped with pretty much everything you might need (including little touches like SF guides, Woolite for washing, a big tote for shopping, etc.). The bed was exceptionally comfortable. I found Holly’s notebook with tips on local restaurants and stores very helpful, along with a decorative wall hanging with a graphic of the neighborhood pinpointing all the Muni lines. The garden with a grapefruit tree and flowers, which I had all to myself, was a treat. A big asset for me was the landline phone with unlimited domestic calling, since I didn’t bring a cell — very few Airbnb’s in SF have this feature. Really, Holly seems to have thought of everything!
The location is perfect — at the end of Pierce Street by beautiful Duboce Park, thus, little traffic and totally quiet at night. There was the pattering of little feet in the mornings along with occasional squeals, but I thought that was fun, a nice homey touch and I was up anyway. The neighborhood is classic S.F., easy walking distance to all points, convenient to trams and trains. As a health nut, I was glad to have several healthfood stores, including a huge new Whole Foods, just a few blocks away. All in all, I really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it!
Holly was great and always accessible. The garden unit was just awesome and in the perfect neighbourhood, access to groceries, bars and shops all within walking distance. We couldn't have been happier with our accommodation and amenities included. It was right nextdoor to a dogpark and the tram to downtown and wharf. We would happily stay here again and would highly recommend anyone else to stay here.
Holly's garden apartment was fantastic, there's no other way to describe it!
The bed was extremely comfortable, the entire place was spotless and we felt relaxed as soon as we walked in.
The neighbourhood was great; there are super bars and restaurants only a few blocks away and the public transport links were also really handy.
We would definitely stay at Holly's again and would absolutely recommend it to anyone else looking to stay in Lower Haight!
Note: My mother, father, and younger brother stayed at Holly's house during a recent trip to SF. Their review is below:
Holly's apartment is the perfect place to stay during a visit to San Francisco! It comfortably accommodates up to 3 people - we stayed there with our teenage son and always felt like we had plenty of room. The apartment is exactly as described, perhaps even roomier than it sounds in the description. The furnishings are modern and comfortable, and the apartment is clean and well-stocked. The backyard is a lovely, quiet retreat. The neighborhood is very attractive and very family-friendly. It's accessible by public transportation to just about anywhere a visitor would like to go. The Muni Metro N-line stops one block away and can take you to downtown, Golden Gate Park, AT&T Park, and many other places. Several bus lines are also within easy walking distance as are many stores and restaurants.
Holly and her husband, David, are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed talking with them on several occasions, and we didn't mind at all the sounds of their young children at play. If you enjoy Thai cuisine, please take their recommendation and eat at Thep Phanom just a few blocks from their house.
