From back East, I live in San Francisco now and I like making new things.

Located in a quiet pocket of San Francisco with all the conveniences just outside the door, this apartment is perfect for sightseeing or just relaxing and soaking up the Californian lifestyle. The space is clean, spacious and tastefully decorated with loads of charm. Dave is considerate, kind and all the good things packaged up in a perfect host!
I had a great time at David's. I stayed there for seven days and enjoyed every single one of them. It's a nice and very tidy apartment located in an interesting area not far from Valencia Avenue and Mission Street. Also in walking distance to the Twin Peaks.
J Church Muni stations are just conveniently located a few steps from the apartment. However I didn't even use it since David lent me his bike for day trips through San Francisco. A great way to discover the city.
David is a very hospitable person. He invited me to breakfasts and dinners with his friends. We also went to the gym together. He was also very helpful in pointing out destinations within San Francisco.
I highly recommend staying at David's. I'd do it again anytime.
David is super cool and easy to live with. I had a blast and he was fun to talk to. The house is very clean and a perfect location. Right in front of the J train. I highly recommend this place!
Dave was a great host. An interesting person and great to talk too. The room is nice and the bed comfy. A great place to stay whilst in San Fran as its right near to good amenities and a tram stop.
This was my very first ABB stay ever -- great experience! From photos, thought I'd be staying in a living room, but actually had my own bedroom with door. Lots of art and warm, flea markety/antiquey furnishings -- great decor. Shared bath was spotlessly clean. David was a perfect host -- helpful, but not intrusive. Highly recommend.
I could not have imagined a better place to stay than Dave's in San Francisco. The second-story apartment is beautiful, clean, full of Dave's (and Dave's friends') art, and quiet. It's in a great area within walking distance of lots of excellent restaurants, a produce market, & sundry, and seconds (!) away from the J train which takes you downtown. My friend and I were there for two weeks, went camping in Yosemite and then came back for one final night, and it was a great place from which to launch our daily adventures in the city!
Dave is a supremely hospitable man--we were immensely grateful for the warm welcome and plentiful advice. He more than respected our privacy and freedom, and at the same time made us feel at home. I cannot recommend Dave and his apartment any more highly! Thanks Dave!
Had a great time, place was perfect for the stay! The room is really big, and Dave was a great host! Will definitely book there again!
Momo and I loved staying at David's place ! He trusted us with his apartment and made everything easier for us. We've also really enjoyed our discussions. We highly recommend his place !
I stayed at David's place for a week in June.
David is a great host, very welcoming, easy going, who goes the extra length to ensure that you enjoy your stay.
David's flat is a spacious, tidy and clean. I had my own room with a comfortable sofa bed. It is an old flat well look after with plenty of character, wooden floor and original sash windows (so you will hear the noise from the road) . It is situated in the Noe Valley with little shops and restaurants and even a farmers market (on the Saturday I was there), all within walking distance. The tram is just down the road with direct access to downtown.
Great place and great host. If I come back, I will ask to stay at David's again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Dave's. He is friendly and discreet. He gave us good tips for visiting the city. Good location , quiet and easy commuting to downtown with the j line just around the corner. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the chats. Sofa bed is very confortable and Baker is a great host as well :)
Dave is very nice guest. Еverything in the apartment was in place. Quiet and so simplistic person and interesting artist. The apartment was like no one was there. I hope that he will be my guest in case he travel in Bulgaria.
Thank you Dave
Fantastic,quiet,clean,courteous, you cannot ask for more from a guest, welcome anytime and. I highly recommend David!
A wonderful guest and a wonderful person.
David was a reliable and considerate guest, I am happy to recommend him highly. We also shared an interest in the field of design and had a great conversation over dinner. ★★★★★
David is a very experienced traveler and I was glad hosting him: I had been particularly impressed by his considerate and polite attitude. I hope, I can host David again or visit him in SF.
Thank you David ! Thanks for your coming. You are so nice guest, friendly, respectful of the space. I recommend you excellent guests!! Welcome to stay again! Thank you so much! Yoshi
David was a wonderful guest! He left the room spotless, he was generous enough to bring me a small gift and share his snacks with me, and he was very considerate and polite. He was also fun to talk to! I recommend him to any host.
David is an easy going and experienced traveler. He is respectful, flexible and dependable, and we were happy to have him at our place. He is definitely an interesting and entertaining individual.
I have known David for several years, and he is one of my dearest friends. We met through my husband, who shared an art studio with David. David draws an interesting and varied group around him: artists, entrepreneurs, engineers. He is committed to ideas such as resource sharing (we are currently in a car sharing arrangement with him).
As a host, he seems to strike a perfect balance between being attentive and giving his guests space. When he hosts couch surfers, he includes them in activities like his famous dinner parties, sightseeing excursions, etc.
I have never travelled with David, mainly because he is a walk across Europe kind of traveller and I could never keep up! Literally--that's what he did last summer. He came back and edited a really cool POV video from footage he took as he walked throughout Europe and into Turkey and Southeast Asia.
The apartment is good sized, clean and comfortable; it is free of the personal clutter I see in a lot of airbnb sublets, but it isn't sterile feeling. There's art on the walls and nice furniture and area rugs. The location is very convenient. It's easy to get downtown by streetcar, explore Noe Valley and Mission neighborhoods by foot, or get to the Peninsula by auto. At the same time it is a nice residential neighborhood that feels safe and peaceful.
Baker is a very good cat. I'm not much of a cat person, but I like Baker. He isn't needy or too talkative and seems to shed less than other cats.
I would highly recommend David as a host and his apartment as a pied à terre for exploring San Francisco and beyond.
Two thumbs up for Dave! I met him through a mutual friend, and stayed with him at his place in Noe Valley for two months. It was great fun. Dave is creative, easy-going, and a wonderful host. Every day he seems to be working on new and clever inventions from better shopping bags to iPhone apps. Dave makes you feel at home, and his place is plenty tidy.. Baker the cat is great too!
