Advertising executive with lots of travelling. I have two boys who spend time at my property.
Saq and I only had a brief interaction. Let me start by saying he was more than accommodating! He went above and beyond for me! I was supposed to get in to SF around 4pm so there wasn't an issue. Unfortunately I didn't get in until 11:45pm. Saq and I were in communication the whole time. I told him to just hide the keys somewhere that I could find them. He insisted on being there when I arrived. Which I thought was great. So finally around 12:30 I arrived at Saq's place. I apologized up and down for keeping him up so late. He told me he travels all the time so he understands. Saq gave me a tour and got me settled in. I felt bad because during our conversation he mentioned he was flying out at 6am for work. I apologized again for being late! Once more Saq said don't worry about it and left. You can tell a lot about someone that is willing to show you around, 5 hours before there own flight! Thanks Saq!
Now for his place. It was nice and relaxing to be there. Once the trolley goes by a few times you get used to it. It was very clean and convenient. One of the cool things about it was he had some movie posters in his apartment. If you read them, they were all short films (i think) that he directed. I though that was pretty cool.
It's about a 25 min trolley ride into the city and it cost $2. There's plenty of nice places within a few blocks to eat. The beach was easy to get to. I would recommend Saq's place to anyone!
Loved staying here. Saq is a great host. Perfect location. Walk to beach. Train steps away!! FYI and this is NOT a criticism. There is no wifi. Not a problem for me but it was an assumption I made that there would be.
I will be back!! Thanks, Saq!
Saq was very responsive and accommodating. Lovely and comfortable spot at a great value.
Nice place! Thanks!
We stayed for 1 week at this flat and had an amazing time. Saq is an awesome guy who is dependable and knows how to keep in contact. The flat is about a 5 minute walk to the beach and also surrounded by plenty of cafes and restaurants (if you're working you'll go here for wifi). To get into the city you have the N and it takes about 25 minutes and is a pleasant ride. Bottom line - if you're looking for a flat close to the ocean, on a transport line, with a great host - this is your place. :)
Mr. Saq was very easy to talk to and accommodating to our schedule from the day one. The location of the apartment is very convenient with bus stop across from the apartment and very close to great restaurants, Golden Gate Park and beach. The apartment was very clean and cozy. Will try staying there everytime I visit San Francisco.
This apartment is great. In front of the N line. Near the beach, a some cafes and a organic supermaket.
It´s clean and confortable.
Saq and his wife Saadia were really nice. Saadia also gave me some good tips about the neighborhood and the city. Thank you!
We had a great stay at Saq's place. The location can't be better if you want a relaxing San Francisco experience.
A very spacious apartment on the ground floor only a few blocks away from the beach and the Golden Gate Park. It has all the necessities you need when you're after for some basic, affordable accommodation. In the area there is a big 7-Eleven, but also some funky coffee shops, dinners for breakfasts and lunches, restaurants (American, Chinese, Thai (the fried catfish from Thai Cottage is my favourite), Indian, all offering take away too). The N line (train) runs every 5-10 minutes and brings you to downtown SF in 40-45 minutes. If you don't bother to stay in downtown SF and prefer staying in a residential area very near the beach, don't look any further then!
Saq's place was spacious, clean, and convenient to the Muni. He was very accommodating to all our needs and very helpful with recommendations. We enjoyed talking to him and felt at home in the apartment.
It was a great pleasure hosting Saq and his wonderful family. I´d love to always have guests like them. Communication was great and once here they were very appreciative with the house and they left it in perfect shape. I´d love to have them back. 100 % recommended
Saq is a perfect guest. The house was clean and tidy, and is a very friendly perdón. I recommended sure!
Saq Ma and his wife and 2 boys were perfect guests. They were respectful and left the studio exceptionally clean. I would love to have them back. Thank you for choosing Cabin on the Ridge.
I enjoyed meeting Saq and his very nice young family. It was a pleasure to have such social friendly guests at the house. The house was left very clean and I would certainly recommend Saq as a guest.
Saqib is a lovely host and a wonderful friend! I have known Saqib for three years since arriving in California and now I consider him part of my family. Having enjoyed spending time at his apartment I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who was looking for a comfortable stay in a great location. I walked to the beach and to some fun coffee shops within 10 minutes. Saqib has great local knowledge of San Francisco and will be happy to share it with you. The Bart is within easy access so are lots of places to explore within a short distance. Enjoy!
