I live in San Francisco. I love the city and the people in it (most of them anyways...)
We could not have been more pleased with our experience - our first time using Airbnb. Jeff and Pavla were wonderful hosts, the apartment was beautiful, clean and spacious, and the location was fantastic. What a great way to get a chance to "live" in San Francisco like a local - away from all the hotels and touristy spots. An oasis to return to at the end of each day. We would definitely come back!
Reading other reviews, we expected good things from the apartment & the host - we were not disappointed! The apartment is beautiful, even better & larger than the photos show. Beyond that, it has everything you could ever need for a good stay - fully equipped kitchen, laundry room & bathrooms.
We also enjoyed the location, Chestnut Street with it's shops, bars & restaurants is less than 10 minutes walk away & down to the water (at Marina) is the same distance. We walked into Fisherman's Wharf a few times too, a nice walk - takes less than 30 minutes at a moderate pace.
We met Jeff on the second night, his family live right above & he offered us any advice/help we needed. Other than that, he was there if we needed but left us to enjoy the holiday without interference.
We'd love to return at some point in the future - a true home away from home in the city.
Jeff was a great host. Highly recommended. It was an excellent addition to our trip to San Francisco.
Jeff and Pavla were professional, helpful and attentive at all times. The place was very conveniently located, spacious, well equiped and clean. A great stay overall. We would definitely come back.
Thank you Jeff and Pavla!
My mom, brother, and I spent about a week at Jeff's gorgeous Marina flat. We are all originally from the Bay Area and cannot imagine a better home base. It is a great location for exploring San Francisco, eating/shopping/running (the best possible location for running) and if you have a car it is also a good location from which to explore the greater Bay Area.
The apartment itself is just like the pictures, spacious, well-kept, and really tastefully furnished. We only cooked one night (why cook when there are so many good restaurants steps away!) and were able to find everything we needed pots/pans/dishes wise to cook. The location and flat itself feel very safe, and it is nice having Jeff right upstairs if we were to need anything (we didn't). Having a washer/dryer and parking (we paid extra for it) are an added bonus.
One of my favorite parts of traveling is getting to know a neighborhood and feel a little like a local. As a former SF local -- I can tell you there is no better place to do this than in the Marina (and from Jeff's amazing apartment). We are hoping to come back and stay again!
We had a great stay at Jeff's place! Very clean, spacious and nicely furnished place. Perfect for family. Wonderful neighborhood.
Then, Jeff and his family are the most amazing hosts. Communication fast. Jeff helped us with parking and everything else we could need.
We'll come back.
Gorgeous 1 Bedroom Apartment. It is on the bottom and in the back of a larger unit, but the back patio is adorable. Kitchen and living room are pretty spacious, and everything is clean and new. Would definitely recommend this!
We had an amazing time here! The apartment itself was exactly as advertised: clean, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable and spacious. Great place to hang out on a lazy afternoon, or cook dinner at home. Pavla was responsive and helpful, and Jeff and his wife stopped by one afternoon just to make sure we were comfortable and had everything. We were in need of an ice tray and they immediately brought one to us, filled with ice! They could not have been more welcoming. The neighborhood is great--the block itself is very quiet, but it is a quick walk to lots of shops, cafes, restaurants, the water, etc. We parked our car on the street and had a bit of trouble finding a spot when we came back in the evenings, but always found something within a few blocks. We'll be back to SF and we hope to stay here again. Thanks for a great visit!
This apartment is absolutely gorgeous and was an ideal way to visit a city that I used to call home. Jeff and his property manager were a pleasure to work with, extremely amenable and provided great recommendations of restaurants, and bars to visit. I would 100% rent from them again - the apartment really made for a great visit.
Jeff's place is darling! It is a beautifully decorated apartment with a great patio out back for outdoor dining, sunbathing or just getting some fresh air.
It is not huge but great for two people or a couple with one small child on the pull out.
I was pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen equipt with all of the basics you will need to cook. There is a Safeway a few blocks away so we were able to have big breakfasts at home and save our money to spend on dinners.
It is walking distance to the wharf and Crissy Field so on a nice day you can play at the beach. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby.
