Urban Planner and Los Angeles native, who is now living in San Francisco after a 2 year stint in New York City. Love cities, food, traveling, dogs, and bikes.
This is my second stay at Kris's loft, I absolutely love it here, its walking distance to Union Square and ATT Park and the loft is extremely spacious. Kris is so nice and helpful my flight was delayed 5 hours and she dropped off the loft key at the hotel lobby the night before. I Would continue to rent from her =)
I was extremely happy with kris and this beautiful place. This is a very special comment I'm leaving because it is my first experience through air bnb and would definitely use it again, when in San Fran this is where I will stay. The pictures of the place are true to life, kris was extremely accommodating and so easy to talk to. It was thanksgiving weekend when I was staying here and kris and manny were going to be out of town but she was so considerate and wanted to make sure the keys were going to get to me no matter what. I live in southern Cali she was heading down here for the holidays so she offered to drive them too me! So sweet, I told her it was not necessary and she could mail them. I definetly recommend this place!
The loft was fantastic and spacious. Kris and Manny were awesome hosts! They provided us with some snacks and beers in the fridge and lots of very great ideas of which places to go to nearby. Also checked in with us the next day to make sure we had everything. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and would love to stay here again!!
The loft was lovely. Spacious,stylish, and all the facilities you would need. We really relaxed here, the place had a really nice atmosphere.
Manny met us at the loft and gave us lots of good information about the area. information about local taxi services was useful as we did use taxis to get to the city centre (roughly $10). Hand over was easy. They were also kind enough to leave fresh milk,cold beers and some basics,which was very helpful and helped us to settle in quickly.
Food market just a short walk away, which made it easy to carry bags back to the loft.
We loved the loft and we loved SF...so much to do and so nice to have such a comfortable base to return to. Would not hesitate to recommend the loft. Lizzie
The apartment was beautiful. There was plenty of room for our group, and Kris had thought through everything we might need or want to know. The bars and restaurants within walking distance are fantastic, and the neighbors were very friendly. This was a great deal for us.
We stayed at the loft for the Outside Lands Music Festival, and could not be more pleased. The design is beautiful. Kris was a great host and got back to me right away if I had any questions. She provided the four of us a very comfortable stay. We found parking right outside of the building and it was very easy to catch a cab for us to go to Golden Gate Park. Also just a 15 minute walk from Civic Center Bart. There was more than enough room, and a great kitchen! We will definitely be come back.
Kris let us rent her whole loft in SOMA for our wedding week and it was a great choice since it offered us a nice space to host some guests, provided a parking spot, and featured a nice kitchen. SOMA receives a lot of sunlight as well and this location was close to Trader Joe's so convenient.
She was responsive to our questions, accommodating to our situation, and understanding with our request to host a few friends and family over one day for brunch.
The only two issues to highlight clearer to guests staying would be that there is no air conditioning in this unit at all and there is no elevator, so people with heavy luggage should beware.
Lastly, a random but fun fact is that my fiancee really enjoyed Kris' awesome plush dolphins (2 in total) - they were awesome companions.
We'd recommend the place for sure to others.
Kris and Manny were exceptional hosts and their loft was spacious, tasteful, full of pleasant touches and appeared exactly (even better than?) described on the web. They were gracious in accepting our very late arrival, provided many excellent tips about visiting the Bay Area, were thoughtful about sharing their loft (including allowing us to use their WiFi and bikes!). One couldn't have asked for more. The only drawback was the distance from many transportation options (although there are two bus routes nearby, both the MUNI and BART were a hike), but that allowed for great walking. A true gem!
Had a Great stay!!!! very friendly and a great location for a very reasonable price. The loft was extremely spacious, there was more than enough room for 4 of us. Their loft truly made this a successful trip. I was able to walk to Att park and bar hop during the game and still walk home. I would refer this place to anyone!!!
My husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend in San Francisco at Kris and Manny's luxurious loft! This tops staying at any 4 star hotel. We felt like we were in an episode of HGTV. Their place is so nicely decorated. Kris was a great host. Although we weren't able to meet in person, she arranged for us to pick up the keys and left us with directions and maps to locations we were planning to go to. Communicating with them was also very easy and they quickly responded to all of our questions.
Unfortunately the stove/ oven was not working when we got there, which limited our cooking. Other than that, we had a wonderful stay.
Kris, Manny, Jen and Daniel are awesome people. We really enjoyed them as our guests. We hope they will return soon.
great couple. Hardly saw them as that took advantage of all to see and do in Savannah. Would welcome them again, anytime.
Kris and her boyfriend were great to have at my place! Easy to communicate with, they were a pleasure to host. So clean I could hardly tell anyone had stayed here! =)
I'd welcome them back anytime!
Kris and Manny are a fun loving couple who enjoy experiencing new and interesting things. They have traveled around the world and are proud to call San Francisco home. They also make friends easily, are down to earth, and treat everyone they encounter as unique individuals they can learn and grow from.
