Jessica was really a great host to us. She bought us chocolate, water and some flowers on our arrival. The apartment was clean, nice arranged and just perfect for us. The towels were super white and fluffy. On the table Jessica left many books, hints, etc., so that we had a good start discovering SF. Bus station is around the corner. The BEST was that we could do the Bay to the Breakers run thru the city and had so much fun! Thx so much for this hint and for your hospitality!! Hopefully we
can come back soon... :)
Had a fantastic stay here in Hayes Valley! The location was superb for access to public transit - buses/LRT/BART were all within a 10 minute walk. The area itself is fantastic with trendy restaurants, amazing coffee shops, delicious ice cream, and a multitude of excellent recipes.
Our only disappointment was that we didn't have more time to spend in San Francisco.
The apartment itself was spotless and Jessica was an outstanding host with restaurant and activity recommendations which definitely enhanced our experience.
The bathroom in the apartment is a bit cozy if you are tall but it just adds to your San Francisco experience.
We would definitely go back to Jessica's Hayes Valley Haven!
Wonderful apartment in a fantastic location. Jessica was a great host and kept in touch with me during my stay. Very accommodating and left great guides for the city out or me! Would absolutely recommend staying here.
I was very well received by Jessica. The apartment is very well located in the heart of Hayes Valley. The neighborhood is safe and all the shops are nearby. The apartment is well insulated from street noise and the bedroom is quiet. The bed is very comfortable. I also appreciated the quality of the WiFi to work effectively. I highly recommend Jessica's apartment.
Great apartment in a great neighbourhood! Jessica was a top host too, gave us lots of tips on where to eat and shop in the area, and check-in/check-out went smoothly.
After living in Hayes Valley a few years ago I was keen to spend some time there on a trip back. If you like great restaurants (Absinthe, Zuni, Sebu etc), great coffee (Blue Bottle), people watching (Patricia's Green) and shops - you will love Hayes Vally. Jessica's place could not be located any better. You are right in the middle of all the action. Jessica was a great host, very organized with guides and information/tips for the new visitor to the area, and was very accommodating with my earlier than expected arrival. I couldn't have picked a better place to get re-acquainted with Hayes Valley.
Jessica was a fantastic host! She checked-in with me throughout the stay to make sure everything was going well. The location is just perfect—as close to the park as you can get, which makes morning coffee at Ritual a fantastic routine. And we closed a couple nights with ice cream at Smitten. It was so great to be back in SF again after living there and Jessica's apartment gave us a chance to experience living in our favorite neighborhood.
Jessica is a fabulous hostess! Checking in and out was easy-breezy and Jessica was nice enough to check in with me half way through my ten-day stay to make sure I was enjoying myself. Jessica's place couldn't have been in a better location! Right in the heart of Hayes Valley - I rolled out of the pillowy bed and ten feet out the front door was a fab French coffee shop/cafe. Super convenient to 3+ Muni lines and even though the apartment is right in the thick of everything, the bedroom is in the back so it was nice and quiet to sleep. This was my first Airbnb stay and now I see why folks rave about it!!!
My teen son and I spent 3 nights at Jessica's over Christmas and could not have been more satisfied. The apartment was super-cute, exactly as pictured, as well as spotlessly clean and cheerfully decorated for the holidays. Plenty of room for two! Jessica was an awesome hostess--A welcome bag with bottled water. Pellegrino and delicious homemade holiday cookies awaited us, and she checked in via email to make sure we had what we needed. Her neighbor was also very nice and helped when us "country bumpkins" couldn't figure out the buzzer/ security outer entrance (easy once you knew how!) The flat is up 2 flights of stairs located in the middle of the block between 2 boutique shops in one of the hippest areas of SF, felt very safe, lots of great food nearby and fun little shops. I slept in the master bedroom which was quiet--my son was on the sofabed in the living room which faced the street and therefore had the usual random city noise, but it didn't bother him. (Jessica thoughtfully left earplugs for those who might want them.) I really can't think of a single downside, it was the perfect place to stay in all ways, and we hope to go back!
Jessica is a great host, I had a an awesome time in Hayes Valley. She was very polite and helpful when I arrived. Perfect location for exploring the city using public transport, but if you want to just hang in Hayes Valley relaxing with nice food/wine/beer and some shopping that's easy to do too as the apartment is right at the heart of it.
I had a great time in SF!
Jessica was a wonderful guest and is a very quiet and clean person. Jessica is a very friendly and easy to talk to individual. We would love to host Jessica anytime !
Jessica has been our neighbor for the last year or so (though we knew her before), and she is probably the best neighbor we've ever had. Not only are we super jealous of her apartment (we've already called dibs if she ever moves out), but she's also one of the sweetest (literally and figuratively-- she bakes us cookies all the time) people I know.
In terms of a host and her apartment (that I've already mentioned I'm jealous of), the place is always kept super clean, and it gets great light! We've even stayed in it a few nights when we had friends take over our apartment and it's so cozy and comfortable. Jessica is totally rad, and if you rent from her, you'll also get two cool ass neighbors (me and my bf) willing to help you out whenever! I highly recommend her place.
