This was our first experience with Airbnb so we were a little skeptical! But Bryna was super cool. She was kind enough to wait for us till late in the evening on the day of our arrival. Checking out also wasn’t an issue. She was flexible about the timing. She had kept 3/4 pages of instructions to enlighten us about the amenities in the neighborhood as she was going out of town for that week. We roamed around SF for four days in SF using a ‘MUNI passport’ and got to explore a lot of the city due to awesome central location of her place!
Though we hardly spent time inside the house it was exactly as Bryna had portrayed it on airbnb. Spacious enough for us, good amenities, great location- nothing much to complain about. There was a lot of dog hair around the house which was a unsettling in the beginning. Rest was great. The bed was very comfortable. She has a great DVD collection too which we didn’t utilize. We didn’t feel insecure at any point even though we were out till late in the night, so a safe neighborhood was an added positive.
The biggest plus for us was the location which made most areas accessible within a 30-45min so overall we had a great experience.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Bryna was out of the country when we stayed at her place, but getting in touch with her was easy and she has great communication skills. The location is excellent and it is super close to many bus lines. The washer/dryer was handy, especially with a toddler in tow.
I wish I could say there were no faults to this place, but there were a few downsides. The apartment was very dirty, and there was a lot of dog hair everywhere. We spent the first night vacuuming, mopping and cleaning the bathroom. When I contacted Bryna it seemed that the cleaning person had not shown up before our arrival, and she graciously refunded our cleaning fee immediately.
We live in New York City, so the noise level did not bother us. However, being that the apartment is located at an intersection, there is plenty of street/traffic noise, and the neighbors' footsteps and opening/closing of the garage can be quite loud. Again, if you're used to apartment/ big city living this probably won't be an issue.
Overall, staying at Bryna's was a good experience. The only people who I would not recommend this place to would be those with crawling babies and those with dog allergies. If you don't fall into that minority, then this is a spacious apartment with patio access, a garage, a washer/dryer, a great location and a responsive host.
When we arrived Bryna was really good about the check in and was there to meet us as soon as we arrived, she was also flexible about the check out which we really needed. The apartment is in a great location and the price is pretty reasonable for SF. Bryna also gave us advice on where to go in the NorCal area as we wanted to travel outside SF. She was also really responsive when someone parked in our space and had it sorted within 10 minutes. However, there are a few drawbacks. The apartment can be pretty noisy from both the neighbors walking around and from the garage shutter which almost makes the lounge shake. Then there's the dust and dog hair. Although there is a central area in all of the rooms which has been cleaned the parts that haven't are really, really dusty, and there's quite a bit of dog hair. In total it was ok, but could have been a lot better.
Bryna was very responsive and helpful! Her apartment was centrally located and the garage parking and patio equipped with a grill were great perks!!!
We stayed three nights with our family in Bryna's apartment. The beds were super comfy, bathroom was very nice, and all the rooms were very spacious. We were barely there but to sleep and get ready in the morning but there were plenty of amenities if we had wished to spend more time there. Having room to park our car safely in the garage was really a plus also. Apartment is close to several great dining places so we walked to breakfast and dinner. Thanks Bryna!
Bryna and her sister were adorable! They were so sweet and easy to work with....also, they went above and beyond in terms of being EXTREMELY helpful and agreeing to take care of some things i needed on my way out of town. perfect guests in every way!
