Katia is an incredibly responsive host who provides ample information on her apartment and ensures an easy stay. In my case, she mailed the keys to me in advance of the trip. The apartment is exactly as advertised - a comfortable studio in a safe and enjoyable part of town. (Those new to San Francisco should be sure to wander or run down to the Marina.) Do make sure to check the actual rate for your dates of travel -- despite the initial indication of $139/night, my rate was $239/night in October 2013 ($290/night with cleaning and Airbnb fees).
This was a great place to spend the weekend. Katia was out of town when we were due to arrive, but she provided excellent and detailed instructions on where to pick up keys, how to get into the apartment, and anything you would need to know about the place (how to operate wi-fi, laundry, where the trash disposal is....etc).
The apartment is comfortable, nicely furnished, in a good neighborhood, and walking distance to many restaurants and public transit locations. There is also a Trader Joe's nearby that was pretty convenient. I would definitely stay here again on future trips.
Nice host. Cosy apartment.
Katia was a great host! She was very accommodating when my arrival time changed, and her apartment was very comfortable - especially the bed! I would definitely stay here again.
Katia's place was perfect :) My boyfriend and I were visiting San Fran for the first time and decided to use airbnb. The flat was very clean, the bed was amazing, location ideal, and the tv was great to have after a long day exploring!
We just got back from a wonderful long weekend at Katia's apartment. The location was perfect for exploring all of San Francisco's sights due to its central location, and the fact that it was right on Polk Street made catching a cab a breeze. The apartment was clean and well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the apartment looked just as it does in the photos. Katia was so helpful and graciously accomodated our check in and check out times. Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment and we will be staying again on our next visit to San Francisco.
We absolutely loved Katia's place. Her flat was centrally located so that we could walk all over the city, even to the ballet! The apartment was comfortable, with big windows that let in great light. Katia was an excellent host, offering her availability for support if needed. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place to family and friends.
Katia's location was the perfect spot for us. Right off busy Polk St. (my favorite part of the city!), you're out the door in seconds and right where you want to be: in the thick of the best shops, clubs, bars, restaurants and cafes- everything you need!
Since the listing is tucked in the back of the building, overlooking a garden it is very quite as well. The apartment was clean and well appointed with everything easily accessible. Especially enjoyed: unwinding with the television hooked up with a number of viewing options, the serene artwork on the walls, and waking up to the sun brightening the room through the bay windows and the seagulls calling.
Katia was a great host- responsive and knowledgeable. We'd stay again in a heartbeat!
Katia is a nice host, arranging to meet with me during a busy time to exchange the keys, providing clear instructions for how to utilize the things in her apartment and checking-in with me during my stay. The neighborhood couldn't be more central and I'd think it'd be almost an ideal place for visitors to stay for its location alone.
Thank you Katia for renting from us with your two friends. We would welcome you back.
Katia and her group were great guests. The house looked great after they left.
Katie & Adam stayed at the cottage over the weekend, and were a complete joy. Katia was communicative and respectful of our property. I welcome her back anytime.
