The apartment is greatly located, close to many amazing restaurants and cafes. Public transport to downtown and bike rentals is only around the corner. The apartment itself was amazing. We agreed on staying in the unfurnished apartment, as Ketan and Blanche only moved out. We enjoyed the unusual experience of sleeping on a mattress in a completely empty apartment, the only downturn was that the wifi has already been transferred. We never met Ketan or Blanche, but communicating was easy and convenient with them and we felt that they were reachable if needed.
I stayed at Khetan and Blanches after they moved out, so it was quite minimal (which is exactly what they said in the property description). It's a beautiful apartment, though, in a great location and the price is amazing for SF. A good place to crash without any of the bells and whistles.
We contact Blanche from the beginning and during our stay, she was awesome helping us because we had an early check-in and flexible for our check out, our flight was at midnight so we left our luggage on the apt. after check out hours. Everything was clean and neat and we receive a nice welcome with cold water on the fridge and chocolates in the bed. This was the first time using AIRBNB and we felt completely happy! I fully recommend to book with Ketan and Blanche!
SF was one stop of our honey moon trip across US. That were awesome 2 days for me and my wife staying in K&B's apartment, clean, warm, feels like home. It was just what we want to experience a citizen life in such a international and beautiful city rather than as travelers. Thank K&B'S instant reply when we were still driving on the way to SF. It ll be part of our good memories forever.
Ketan & Blanche's apartment is in a great location -- right near some of the best food and shopping in the Mission. The apartment is clean, bright, spacious, and comfortable. We enjoyed the private back deck overlooking flowering trees while having breakfast. Such a nice treat! Everything is as you'd need it -- clean and modern kitchen and bath. The hosts' arrangements were clear and convenient. They even left us snacks and local info. There is some street noise audible in the bedroom, but we didn't find it bothersome -- just normal traffic. And the black-out curtains made it easy to sleep. We will definitely look to rent their place again when we return to San Fran!
Ketan and Blanche were fabulous hosts and their beautiful apartment is in the best possible location. We enjoyed the natural light, cute back patio, and comfortable bed. Located right in the Mission near great cafes, nightlife, and Dolores Park - we hope to stay here again soon!
Ketan and Blanche were great hosts and very easy to communicate with. Their apartment was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable, with beautiful natural light. The location was excellent - very close to fabulous eateries and bars. We also appreciated the flexible check-in and check-out. We would definitely stay in this apartment again.
Great apartment-- very large, clean, nice.
Note the space heater next to the bed (didn't notice this til I left and it would have been nice, as the main heater is down the hall from the bedroom).
Ketan and Blanche were fabulous hosts! They made us feel right at home. The apartment is very spacious and clean. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is pristine. We loved sitting on the back deck in the morning while we drank our tea and coffee.I don't think we could have found a better location in the Mission district. It is right around the corner from Valencia where the best restaurants, cafes and shops are located. It is also a few minutes walk to Bart. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful time in Ketan and Blanche's beautiful apartment. It was very spacious and clean and the kitchen was wonderful (very modern). The bed was also very comfortable with nice linens. The best part about it was the location because we had every bar and restaurant you can imagine within a few blocks of us (not to mention the best bakery in San Francisco right across the street). It helped that we were there on a beautiful sunny weekend but the apartment is very light and airy (which we loved - there is even a small deck in the back). There really was no downside to this apartment except maybe that the bedroom is on the street rather than the back but we weren't really bothered by the bit of street noise (I wore ear plugs but my husband didn't and we live in a really quiet area so we are probably overly sensitive). Thanks, Ketan and Blanche, we will be back!
Ketan, Blanche, Pierre...what a great guests! Very good communication before booking, left the house very clean when they left! It was a pleasure to host you and I hope to see you soon for the next Festival in Playa!
Ketan and Blanche were a last minute booking that I'm glad worked out after some glitches with the Airbnb site. Hosts on Airbnb, themselves, they were very thoughtful and are welcome back anytime.
Delightful people, experienced airbnb guests and hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed having Ketan and Blanche and hope they'll come again.
Ketan & Blanche were energetic & Cheefful. They communicated their travel plans & followed thru as they said. Both had smiles on their faces, showing appreciation & respect for my home as they are host's as well. They are definitely welcome to stay again in the future.
Ketan and Blanche were perfect weekend guests. They were friendly, respectful and thoughtful. I welcome them back anytime.
Ketan and Blanch were (email hidden) a matter of fact they are now friends and hooking up often. Wow.
Ketan and his wife were perfect guests - left everything very clean and tidy. Would host again :)
I rented to Ketan and Blanche from abroad, using a friend as a go-between. They come across as reasonable and considerate people. My friend enjoyed meeting them and neither of us have anything negative to report. They are easy to work with and were very flexible about a couple of issues that arose during their one month stay. I would recommend them highly for anyone looking to host.
Ketan and his wife are wonderful people! The kind of people you would like to have as guests!
I really enjoy the company of Ketan and his wife. They are perfect travellers, very friendly and respectful people.
Thanks again for coming, we hope to see you again and we wish you a splendid honeymoon.
I've known Blanche and Ketan since 2009, and they are just fantastic! I would definitely recommend staying with them. They're so kind and warm, and they really want to make sure that everyone has a great time!
Blanche and Ketan are the nicest and most hospitable people I am fortunate to have known. Their apartment in the mission is in the perfect location and feels like home. You get the city life of having everything you crave outside your door, and have comforts of good friends sharing a wonderful home. For everyone who desires living in the heart of San Francisco, with the warmth of home, this is the place for you.
Excellent hosts. The apartment is centrally located in a prime area of San Francisco with all amenities just steps away. The unit is well-appointed and features all of the comforts you could possibly need. Very clean, bright and comfortable. An excellent rental.
Ketan & Blanche are not only an amazing couple, but also wonderful hosts! Having stayed in many SF apartments, this is by far one of the most nicely decorated, most spacious apartments you can find in an unbeatable location. Ketan & Blanche will go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful stay - the listing price is extremely reasonable and I don't think you could find a better spot & better hosts for your SF stay!
