I was great to stay in Bruce house , our family with 7 persons loved the studio with lot of space , the location was really good near to everything , Bruce was a very friendly host
Bruce was a very nice host-he greeted us on arrival and gave us an overview of the house. It was also thoughtful that he left some of the baby gear in place, knowing we would have young ones. Great location, beautiful view of the city and close to a grocery store. Loved the parking in driveway. We were comfortable with 4 adults and 2 kids. Will hopefully be back!
Bruce was friendly and tried to accommodate our needs by setting up a crib, and placing a highchair and doggy bowls for us upon arrival. Indeed he is very speedy with email/text communications.
Pros: The house is nice with plenty of sf charm, as is the yard. Most of the amenities were provided as listed. The neighborhood is convenient, and the nearby Walter Haas park is definitely a plus- we took our son every night.
Cons: (lowered star rating): This was my first time with Airbnb, but when I filter for whole home rentals and see a backyard in the pics, I expect to have the backyard. Bruce came into the yard nearly everyday to work, so we did not feel welcome there, nor could we allow our dog out. He also chose to paint the deck on our first night- claiming we would have access the next day. Unfortunately the paint did not dry that quickly. While the shower may well have been remodeled in 2013, it has a leak below the wand so it sprays everywhere, decreasing the water pressure and generally causing a slippery mess. The home appears to have 2 smoke detectors in the hallways, both of which lacked batteries; and there were no smoke detectors in the bedrooms, which I'm pretty sure is illegal, aside from the false advertising issue. Be sure to note these issues, if they continue to exist, within 24 hours to Airbnb, as I failed to do. We could fit 2 vehicles in the driveway, but we did not know that garbage night would require us moving a vehicle for a day, so the trash bins could be put out and returned. I did not respond to Bruce's text right away because I was 5 minutes away and about to move the car per his request, so he contacted my mother- whose number he had because she was there doing childcare onsite during the day..that was weird at best.
Neutral fyi (no stars deducted): Maybe a crib and highchair are enough to be designated family/kid friendly. But for my mobile entropy-loving 15-month-old the space was not suitable. There are many trinkets, books and ceramics which we had to rearrange/move to prevent damage. There are two sets of stairs which were difficult to block- we had to move some furniture, as our safety gate was not wide enough. The cabinet handles were securable with cable ties, luckily. Honestly we rented this place for our dog to have the yard otherwise we would have gotten a hotel room, which would require less baby-proofing etc., but oh well.
Other folks might not experience the intrusion we felt, as we booked quite late, out of necessity. So it seemed Bruce had planned to do maintenance work during a vacancy and despite taking our money (full rate) chose to go ahead anyway, since he had taken time off from work.
Very spacious and well appointed home in a great location! We live around the corner and needed a place to live while we had some construction completed. Bruce was very responsive and friendly. Thanks!
What a great house! I stayed here with a few friends for my birthday weekend. We had plenty of space to spread out, while still feeling comfortable. The bed in the master bedroom was EXTREMELY comfortable; I heard no complaints from the other guests. The view is also killer - on a clear day, we could see all the way to Marin. I would definitely stay here again!
We had such a lovely stay at Bruce's home. He was very accommodating to our needs no matter what the time was. The neighborhood and home was perfect for our party of 7. I couldn't have had a better stay at this location, most of the materials were provided and the supermarket was literally a short walk away. Bruce was a great host and would definitely recommend him.
Dans un écrin de verdure, maison superbe, très confortable et très bien équipée, située dans un quartier résidentiel très calme et très bien desservi par les bus pour se rendre facilement et rapidement au centre ville. Le supermarché à deux pas de la maison facilite la vie pour des vacances en famille ( de 6 adultes). Nous remercions Bruce pour son accueil, sa gentillesse et sa générosité ce qui nous a permis de passer une semaine de vacances inoubliable à San Francisco pour toute notre famille. Merci encore Bruce.
We had a great time in SF Bay Area, and Bruce's place worked great!
The only downfall is that there's only one bathroom, and with a big gang it can get a little crazy.
Dave was very helpful and the place was well supplied.
Bruce took time to decorate the house for the holidays since we were going to be there for Christmas and New Years. It made our stay more festive. The house is comfortable and spacious and in a great location, easy to get to any place in the city and freeway access. Wonderful to have a Safeway/Bank/Pharmacy all within walking distance. The city views are amazing, have missed them.
Also a bonus to have parking in the driveway to avoid finding street spaces. Would not hesitate to recommend staying here. All in all Bruce is a thoughtful host.
Exceptional stay, it was a great house in a very convenient location.
Bruce is a great guy and a pleasure to host.
I highly recommend to all future hosts.
