Helpful San Francisco Airbnb host.
I was headed up to San Francisco for a week event for two weeks and Mark's place seemed perfect. Upon arrival, my assumptions were validated. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning as I got ready for work. Watching the sky go from black to shades of red, pink, and purple, as the sun crept up over the bay was breathtakingly beautiful! The apartment itself is equipped with space heaters, towels, and a spacious kitchen. Mark welcomed us with a bottle of wine and was more than accommodating. I will definitely be staying here again in the future!
Thank you Mark for our great stay in your appartment. The place is clean and confortable and for us it is a good location to stay near our sun.this was our second visit in SF an if we come another time sure I will first look if the appartment is available.
Good experience. We spent 23 days in Marks apartement and felt really at home. Nice view, enough space, good location. Easy communication with Mark Dobrow. When we come back to SFO, we will look first, if the apartement is available...
Mark, thank you very much for our great stay at your place! The apartment was very nice, comfortable and clean. The view from the balcony was really beautiful! Looking forward to coming back.
Mark's place is clean and comfortable, with a great view of the bay. Terrific location and plenty of space heaters to keep it toasty when it got chilly at night. Lots of great cafés, shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.
This apartment was in a great location for visiting SF: nice and quiet with good services (cafes, restaurants, grocery shops) and lots of buses to various interesting areas (Mission, CBD, etc). A not-too-hard walk from the caltrain station makes it very airport-accessible (just be prepared for the hills).
The apartment itself is great: two good bedrooms, one with a HUGE bed, both beds very comfortable with good, clean blankets, pillows and linen. Two nice bathrooms with good towels felt quite luxurious. The kitchen is very nice, with a proper stove and huge fridge. The sitting room is nice (great views, comfy couches), and the stereo/tv set up is neat (not that you'll need it with that view!).
One issue was that there's a bit of noise from the apartment above: you can hear people walking about, using the shower upstairs. Nothing disruptive, just normal, quiet household noises. We just used the downstairs bedroom, but super light sleepers may have trouble.
Mark was a great host, answering queries quickly, dropping off extra blankets unasked when the weather turned chilly, but not at all intrusive.
A great stay, and I'd definitely use it again!
My mom and sister stayed in Mark's apartment for a week. They really enjoyed it, and my mom is pretty particular. It was clean, roomy and quiet. They both commented on the comfort of the beds. They appreciated having a kitchen, and my mom liked that the apartment is on a level street with no hills! I was surprised that there was a great view of the bay from the apartment.
We loved this sweet apartment. Our stay there, while attending an international conference, gave us time to enjoy beautiful views & a quiet atmosphere. Thanks, Mark, for opening your space to us.

We had a great five-day tour of San Francisco with Mark's apartment as a base. The location was excellent for everything we wanted to do. The neighborhood is served by three bus routes and we used them all, connecting from them to BART, the cable cars, and the street cars. We shopped at one of three groceries half a block away and ate at two restaurants within three blocks. Chez Papa's was outstanding.
The apartment was very comfortable for the three of us. And the view of the bay from the living room could not be matched by most hotels in the city. This was our first AirBnB experience and we are very happy we tried it.
Mark was a good host and his place was very comfortable and clean with a wonderful view of the bay from every window. We enjoyed his paintings which decorate the apt - especially love the one of the guy listening to the radio. The living room furniture is very comfortable for reading or watching TV or just gazing out the window at the bay. The bed was spacious and comfy and the shower always nice and hot. We always found parking right in front of the flat and enjoyed having morning coffee and reading the paper at the Thinker's Café just around the corner. Wonderful location. Very safe and quiet. Would stay again.
