Great place! Wonderful neighborhood! Together make a super value!
We visited San Fran for a mix of work and leisure, from Seattle. We had a terrific time at Holly's place. The exterior is quintessential San Fran and Duboce Park is just steps away. You get the 'feel' you are living in SF for a bit, which was the goal. We had a car and found street parking on the weekend easily but we also used the MUNI (public transit) with stops 2 blocks away and an easy ride most anywhere. Holly and her family were friendly, generous and helpful. The unit is clean, updated and well laid out. We are a family of two adults and two toddlers. The unit is more a junior 1 bedroom but it worked well for us even without a door to the bedroom itself. Even with the park right outside, we managed to have take-out lunch in the courtyard which is awesome and well landscaped. The kitchen is well equipped which is helpful when you want some coffee or put together something to eat. We also checked out Bean There, Cafe du Soleil which are nearby coffee spots. We would easily recommend this to any family, couple or single person and we would gladly stay again. Although you are on the bottom floor of the home, it is completely private, including the courtyard. On another note we highly recommend: SOMA Streetfood Park for awesome truck food, Ichi Sushi in Bernal Heights, Tartine...
Holly's lovely apartment is exactly as advertised.
First, its in a great neighborhood, one of my favorites in SF, and on a very nice street ending in a lovely park. Second, public transportation is quite good and accessible, so you won't need a car. If you do bring a car be aware that the neighborhood, like many in SF, has some tight parking restrictions. Third, the apartment. Well, there are those Airbnb moments when you open the front door and wonder....OMG, what a mistake. You will have the opposite experience at Holly's place! I took one look at the furnishings, the layout and the verdant garden and went "Ahhhh". Nicely furnished, tasteful yet relaxed and thoughtfully provided with everything that you might need. Comfy bed, nice bathroom and workable kitchen. Finally, Holly is a really gracious and accessible hostess. You will be happy to meet her.
I will be trying to stay here again and again when I return to San Francisco.
Holly's garden unit is very nice. It is clean, comfortable and the garden is really lovely. The location is convenient too. Next to a great park, and walking distance to cafe's and some restaurants. We enjoyed our stay.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house is located in a quiet residential area, a few doors away from a beautiful park, and the MUNI which brings you directly to the main shopping district in about 10 minutes. Safeway, which is about 10 minutes' walk away, is a great place for groceries, and there is no lack of restaurants and cafes along the way.
Holly has thought of everything a traveller would want, from an umbrella and guidebooks for SF, to a water purifier and a coffee maker in the kitchen. She responded to our queries promptly, and left little things that made us feel welcome, like chocolates and wine on the table when we arrived, and a bottle of moisturizer on the doorstep when the weather turned really cold.
Sound travels in the house, and with Holly's two adorable young children, we could hear their footsteps through the ceiling as they went about their day. For us, it was a welcome reminder that we were living with a family, but if you are sensitive to noise, it might be something to consider when booking.
We left SF with wonderful memories of staying at Holly's place, and we hope that it will bring the same to others too.
What a gem! Holly (and her adorable son!) greeted us at the door with such warmth. She was quick to answer any questions and never made me feel that I was inconveniencing her no matter how small the request. My parents stayed at the apartment for a few nights and they reported the layout was very comfortable and the bed was cozy. The backyard is so nice to have access to with a lovely citrus tree and even a charcoal grill where we made skewers and enjoyed the San Francisco Summer. I am sure we will be renting from Holly again soon!
We had the greatest stay at Holly & David's garden unit! We couldn't have asked for a better base for our week in San Francisco. Our 3-year-old son loved playing with Holly & David's boys, and they were happy to share their scooters and balls, so appreciated!
The location is perfect, right next to Duboce Park, you are so close to the playground and the N Judah Muni which takes you to downtown. The neighbourhood is lovely, with plenty of places to eat. Our favourites were the Thai, Duboce Park Cafe and Greenburgers on Haight Street.
It's also walking distance to both CVS Pharmacy and Safeway, as well as smaller organic markets.
The unit has everything you need, and I mean literally everything. Not only does it have a comfy bed and foldout couch, with a full kitchen - there is ample linen, umbrellas, yoga mats, sellotape - all the extras that you just might need.
We found the unit to be just as represented in the pictures, with a very homely feel.
We loved it and we're sure you will too. Thank you Holly & David!
Great position for exploring San Francisco- close to the Muni. The apartment was warm and comfortable with access to a washing machine and a small garden. WiFi was patchy. There are a variety of good restaurants in the neighbourhood. We would certainly recommend this accommodation.
This was the perfect little rental suite. It was equipped with everything you need including cookware. The place was clean and very cute. A nice addition was the use of the yard, great to eat lunch in the sun. We thought the location was perfect, you felt like you were a local. Near great restaurant and shop. The only thing is expect to hear some children footsteps in the morning at around 8 am. The noise however was never present at night. I would stay there again!
We really enjoyed staying in this cute, and airy garden apartment. It was a little cramped for me and my 2 teen boys, but we had everything we needed. The kitchen was very complete and clean which was great because we cooked a lot. Parking was easy to find and free, though we had to move the car very 2 hours (which was only difficult in the evening). Great location. The neighborhood is beautiful, and we loved being right next to the little park. We'd definitely like to return!
