I am a writer and videographer living in the best neighborhood on earth: the Mission SF!
I've known Brett for over 15 years. He is obsessive compulsively clean and neat, has an incredible aesthetic from years living in Rome as a musician and filmmaker, and is a great cook. Whenever I go to SF I stay with him - not only for the great meals and conversation, but also because his guest bedroom offers a better experience than I get even in my own place in Boston. Mission also is a neighborhood that can't be beat.
I'd just say this - if you're looking to rent from someone who is responsive, clean, reliable, funny, and a great resource for fun stuff to do in the city - you have found your guy. And if you're worried that he'll be creepy -- don't be. He has a long term girlfriend who lives a block or two away -- and he's crazy about her.
