Based on description and conversations with Russ before I arrived, my expectations where very high. And not only were they met, but indeed exceeded by a near perfect stay. They are now moving from this place, but the good news for airbnb'ers is that they will be hosts again in a new place.
Everything were thoroughly explained and documented before i came and at arrival, through e-mails and notes/post-its where needed.
Russ & Will are terrific people, and I am happy to call them friends after my 4 weeks at their place. Great advice and help were always offered. The dogs Jack (the friendly boxer) and sweet Mickie (tough-to-win-over corgi) were added value for me.
Russ, Will, and their pups were wonderful hosts. The room was perfect, Russ and Will made sure that I always had anything I needed, and I was completely comfortable coming and going as I pleased. I enjoyed Russ and Will's company immensely. We had wonderful conversations over morning coffee (which Russ always made sure was ready before I even got out of bed) and a night out in the Castro. When I'm back in SF, I'll be sure to look them up again.
I recently moved to SF for a new job and stayed with Russ for 4 weeks while searching for a permament place in the city. I had a great experience overall, I'd definietely recommend them to any of my friends who are visiting SF.
The room is very convenient with an ensuite bathroom, a desk, TV and plenty of storage space. Russ keeps the place very clean overall. it was almost like staying in a five star hotel. The location is great in a nice nieghborhood right by the N muni train stop also walkig distance to Castro, Mission, lower height,...etc.
But most importantly Russ is a great host, very friendly and definitely enjoys having guests around; which made my extended period of stay very comfortable. He's very helpful with anything you might need during your stay. I don't think I could have picked any other place better. Not to mention his partner Will who is also very cool and friendly. They have two cute dogs that like running around the house. So as long as you don't have any issues with the dogs it's a great place to stay.
Lovely hosts. Very friendly.
Great room in a rare flat.
Russ was a wonderful host with a beautiful home in a fantastic area. I really enjoyed my time staying with Russ as he was so organized, clean, accommodating and courteous. The room is very well furnished with a private bathroom and great wifi.
I would strongly recommend staying with Russ and hope to stay with him when I return to San Francisco.
The house is a 1 minute walk from the MUNI and BART and is surrounded by great cafes and restaurants.
I had a lovely stay at Russ's home! The location couldn't get better and Russ and Will were wonderful hosts. Wish I could have stayed longer :)
Lovely place in a beautiful area ! The appartment is very nice and there are a lot of cafes near it. Russ was very helpful and nice. It's especially a good place for guests who love dogs.
I had an incredible 7-day stay at Russ's place the first week of October 2012. I felt completely at home, almost like I was crashing with a friend. The room is great -- it has its own en suite bath which is a big plus, and for what you pay is a good value. The space was immaculately clean and comfortable. It's also close to the top of the stairs where you actually enter Russ's place, so it's fairly private as well. Perhaps the best part is the location -- you couldn't ask for a more San Francisco experience, as it's located in lower Haight (luckily on a quieter block in the neighborhood). Folks, do yourself a favor and book this place.
Russ, thanks and see you again!
I loved staying at Russ' place.
First, it's in a fantastic location - really accessible for getting around, great cafes, lots of green spaces. The neighbourhood has masses of lovely old houses; it's got a great feeling about it.
Second, Russ is a great host - very accommodating and friendly and happy to share his space. Coffee and breakfast were always very welcome!
Third, the apartment itself is lovely, spacious, and serene. The room has everything you need, and having a private bathroom attached is a big big plus. This is something Russ should mention more prominently on his listing - but perhaps not, as I don't want to find this place booked up next time I want to visit!
Can't recommend highly enough.
I stayed at 605 Waller Street for a week in September 2012. The experience was great. The location was prime. The accommodations were spotless. The hosts were incredible. This was my first time using Airbnb and my experience could not have been more pleasant.
I was in San Francisco for a user conference and the location was perfect to jump onto public transportation to get back and forth to downtown. Don’t get me wrong, at first I did have some issues with Muni, but Russ was just a phone call away to help get me back on the right path. Russ was very helpful in many ways. He helped me with directions, helped me with recommendations for restaurants, and even had a martini glass waiting for me as requested (sad but true). After my visit he also added a TV and shelves to the suite per my suggestion. Both Russ and Will go above and beyond. It was really more like staying with friends.
They even ordered up good weather! Yes, they are that good! I recommend this place whole-heartedly.
