Fantastic space in a great neighborhood. Well thought out and extremely well equipped it's a comfortable and uber cool space to spend time in. Communication was smooth with Todd and he even checked in personally to make sure we had everything we needed. We hope to be able to stay there again on our next visit to SF!
We really enjoyed out stay at Todd and Amy's! It was a great location, close to public transport and many great eateries. The studio is spacious, clean, private and secure. Todd and Amy have really put in the time to make sure their guests enjoy their stay, including a personal recommendations map of the local area, directions and instructions on how to use things in the unit. This is the ideal airbnb experience and I would recommend their studio to anyone.
The place was great, very clean in a good, slightly more residential area. Nice coffee shop on the corner, laundry right around the corner. We really appreciated the Welcome Beers and ample and great reading material.
Todd & Amy's apartment is located in an amazing spot - super safe, great access to transport, heaps of cute little cafés within walking distance & an overall great neighbourhood. Everything you could need is already in the apartment which was another bonus! We had a hiccup on arrival, but Todd & Amy were quick to rectify it & we were very appreciative of how they went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable. Thanks Todd & Amy, we would definitely love to stay in your apartment when we visit San Fran again!
We loved our stay with Todd & Amy. The location is superb, an easy walk to both the BART and the MUNI. Blocks from the beautiful Dolores Park, colorful Castro street, awesome restaurants and sightseeing. The studio was very clean and tastefully furnished. My husband especially loved the local beers in the fridge and I loved the thoughtful map with their favorite places.
We also had our 7 month old daughter with us and Todd provided a pack-n-play and sound machine! We all slept great, the bed is very comfortable and soft linens. And great water pressure in the shower!
We didn't notice any noise, it was a very peaceful place to return to at the end of each day.
Todd was also extremely helpful when our travel plans changed. Very quick to respond to questions and such a nice guy. We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone visiting San Francisco!
The apartment blew me away. It was very well designed and super practical. I had such a nice stay it was hard to pack up and go. Todd and Amy are wonderful hosts. Todd even made a map of the neighborhood with all his favorite spots and descriptions. Awesome time!
We had a great stay for 8 nights - apartment is very clean and airy - it is only 5 min walk from the MUNI "Castro" stop which gets you down to the Embarcadero in 10 mins, off peak.
The F streetcar stops 5 mins away too but that take a good bit longer, though it is above ground so you can see more of how the city looks - it takes about 45 mins to get to Fisherman's Wharf at the end of the line.
The 16th and Mission BART stop is a 10-15 min walk from the house.
There is a wonderful array of food nearby - we ate mainly on Valencia St, about 10 min walk away - that had big crowds filling up the many spots - Beretta and West of Pecos were two we liked especially.
Todd and Amy were very friendly and welcoming and were available if we had any questions.
SF is a great city and is changing a lot - Market St is being overhauled big time so there are (slightly) fewer homeless crazies wandering about in its mid section.
And weather was superb - it beats the Jan snow in NYC.
Recommend it highly!
Todd and Amy were excellent hosts! They were extremely accommodating and very responsive on the airbnb website. Their place was beautiful and comfortable, exactly as advertised. It is in a great location and I would highly recommend it to others who are interested.
We had all sorts of travel delays so didn't end up making it to Todd and Amy's place (much to our disappointment!). They were hugely helpful and accommodating to our changing plans and dates. I very much appreciated it. I will definitely be staying here when we finally make it over one day!
I selected Todd and Amy's studio as I have rented other properties in the 17th & Sanchez through Airbnb in the past. I enjoy the convenience to public trans to the city as well as availability of essentials within easy walking distance in a colorful neighborhood.
The Bennet's studio was the best! Of primary importance to me, the studio was super clean and well equipped for at home cooking and dining. In addition, it is well appointed making for a friendly and comfortable environment. Although the entrance is off street, the lighting and security system is excellent.
My holiday visit to San Francisco was only enhanced by the Bennett's studio ......... thanks!
I, like Brad, have known Todd and Amy for about 9 years, and I have been on the receiving end of their hospitality on many occasions. I can't rave enough about what great hosts they are. I recommend them without hesitation. As a beta tester for this apartment, I can attest that this is a great place little space in a fantastic location in San Francisco. It's nice to spend time in such a beautiful spot that is convenient to the city center, but still far-removed enough to be a part of a real neighborhood. And what a neighborhood! There is so much to do within a short walk from this apartment. I think this is a great place, run by great hosts, and I can't recommend it enough.
If you're looking for a place to stay in the Castro/Mission area, this is it. Not only are Todd, Amy, and Clyde three of the nicest folks you'll ever meet, but this space is fantastic. I stayed here in May and have no complaints. The bed is more comfortable than my own (and that's saying a lot...my bed is pretty amazing). There is an abundance of seating, a lot of space to store your things, good water pressure in the shower, and it is incredibly (website hidden). Kitchen. Plants. Lots of windows and natural light (though you can easy close the blinds if you want a little privacy). The space is much cleaner than hotels I've stayed at--I'm looking at you Providence Hilton. It also it was safe and private, two incredibly important features to consider when traveling.
In short, you couldn't ask for a better place, just a stones throw away from the action.
I've known Amy for over 15 years and I was so eager to see the studio that she and Todd remodeled because they have incredible taste and don't let design overshadow function. This is not your average city studio. I was blown away with how spacious and light-filled the space was. I can imagine being very comfortable there. It's an added bonus that you will feel safe and secure and happy to do business with Amy and Todd. Enjoy!
I have known Todd and Amy for close to nine years and they are truly, truly wonderful people. You cannot go wrong renting their beautiful studio. It is newly renovated, well furnished, comfortable, clean, and has lots of light. It is also centrally-located, transit friendly, and in one of the most vibrant areas of SF near Dolores Park, between the Mission and the Castro neighborhoods.
