If you're going to San Francisco, you need to try and stay in this apt!!! It's perfect! located in unbelievable great location, a lot of great restaurants and bars and pubs around. The Apt was very clean with everything you can think of, better then an hotel! we had a full fridge with water beer and other goodies. Next time when I'm in SF this is where I'm staying!
The apartment is so nice and cozy, also very well situated. My partner and I had an excellent time. Vamsi had been a great host, sending us all the details we needed in advance and offering tips about how to enjoy best our stay in San Fran. Highly recommended.
We were here during Outside Lands and stayed for a couple of days. We loved our stay in TJ's studio. The place is clean, in a great neighborhood, and very accessible to public transportation. And everything that was advertised was there. Would love to stay here again sometime in the future.
I didn't get a chance to meet with TJ but he was easy to get a hold of via text.
Tj's studio is located in one of the most interesting areas in town.Castro/Mission has a lot to see and also many good restaurants and bars to hang out! The studio itself is neat and cozy, very well decorated, and Tj is always easy to access by text. Highly recommended!
First, TJ was really easy to work with and very responsive. Our plans kept changing and TH was flexible and made it easy to get into the apt. When we walked in it was immaculate. Fresh fruit, bottle of wine and tons of good stuff in the fridge. And the bathroom was stocked better than any high end hotel. If we go back to SF I'm hoping his place is available. If you're considering any other places stop thinking and rent this place!
great studio 2 steps from public transportation and Dolores park! We really enjoyed our stay, the studio is perfectly located and Vamsi really made an effort to make our stay perfect, with little touches (popcorn to watch movies, coffee in the morning, a bottle wine) that made it very special.
We recommend this place for anyone looking for the authentic sf experience in the heart of the mission/castro.
My girlfriend and I had a great stay!
We traveled from Rhode Island to SF and it was quite a long and somewhat arduous trip. It was so nice to open the key to Vamsi's condo to find the cutest, cleanest, and most comfortable accommodation probably in the Mission/Castro area. He had fruit for us on the counter and everything we could possibly need for "a home away from home experience." We would recommend this condo to anyone and would come back in a heartbeat. Vamsi was so friendly and helpful when we needed advice or guidance. He immediately responded to questions and was always available. This was our first Airbnb experience and simply the best!!! It was better than any hotel and was an awesome way to start out trip, as we eventually would be traveling the PCH to SD! Thank you Vamsi!!!
This was our first airbnb experience, and I have to say that TJ set the bar really high! The studio is stylish and well-appointed and TJ has thought of everything, from a fully stocked kitchen to workout equipment, including a yoga mat. We especially liked the wide array of toiletries available; I always end up forgetting something at home and this time was no exception. The location is perfect; great neighborhood, very close to public transit and lots of good restaurants within walking distance. It's a busy area, but the apartment is quiet.
Best of all, TJ was easy to communicate with and was prompt in responding to our questions. He was even able to accommodate an early check-in for us, which was much appreciated since our flight landed in the morning and we weren't sure where we would store our luggage. A fabulous experience!
Flat very well located, with immediate access to Dolores Park and the Castro. Nice Kitchen with all you need. Many towels in the Bathroom. Great washing machine and dryer. Great Audio/Video Equipment. The only downside is that the flat has only one window facing a wall which makes it pretty dark. No view from the window.
But overall: a very good experience and a very welcoming host!
Vamsi's place was fantastic. He obviously has created a comfortable space with his guests in mind. The apartment was very clean and easy to navigate. The only downside I had was some slow internet speeds but that's hardly a deal-breaker. There were several little touches that added to the experience such as fruit and coffee left out for the guests. Highly recommended.
Vamsi and his mom stayed our Apt. They are very nice, easy to communicate!! I recommend this guest to anyone!!
Would definitely recommend Vamsi to other hosts! It seemed like he was never even there. Welcome back anytime.
I've known TJ for almost 3 years and in that span of time, I have never seen his apartment dirty. Living with 3 other roommates in an apartment that sometimes resembles a frat house war zone, it's quite the solace to be able to spend time at TJ's apartment and watch movies and cook in his clean kitchen. The location cannot be beat (on the cusp of both the Castro and the Mission) and if I was visiting SF, I would definitely stay here over other hotels in the area; his place is much more personable than the hotels downtown. Plus the bed is extremely comfortable :)
TJ is a dear friend of mine. I have known him my entire time living in this fabulous city! In those 2 1/2 years we have had great memories in his apartment! I absolutely adore his studio for 1) prime location (Dolores Park/Philz Coffee/Castro/Mission) 2) cleanliness 3) it''s just so damn cute! The set up is perfect! TJ will be a great host to you while you stay in SF. He is so kind, considerate and respectful! =)
TJ is a great friend. Very reliable, respectful, and clean. I have been to his studio several times and it is always in great condition. I know he has put a lot of time and energy into making his home welcoming and comfortable. I would rent from him any day!
