My fiancee and I stayed at Dean's apartment in October 2013 and we cannot recommend this apartment enough (or in the 500 words allowed).
The location is perfect: The apartment is practically next door to the Duboce & Church MUNI N Line or an easy (and safe) walk from either Church or Castro MUNI stations or the 22 or 24 bus routes (to Pacific Heights etc). As other reviewers have mentioned, the apartment is a short (and safe) walk from the vibrant Mission district (Valencia Street has some great bars and restaurants) and local amenities - there is a large Safeway Supermarket and Chase Bank close by.
The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortably decorated and set in a classic San Francisco Victorian property. We felt at home right away. Dean helpfully provided fresh linen, towels and there are laundry facilities in the apartment too.
Dean is a fantastic host and left us some great tips in his welcome book.
My family and I spent a great month in San Francisco with Dean's flat as our home base. It's an ideal location -- close to nearly every streetcar and subway line, walking distance from lots of interesting places, and surrounded by unique grocery stores, restaurants, and parks.
The place is very quiet, especially at night. The neighbors are friendly. The back deck has a neat view of the city's gardens. And the flat itself has an unusual, elegant layout that feels completely open, even though the sliding doors can seal off the bedrooms if needed.
Dean always replied quickly when we had questions. We'd love to stay here again sometime.
Dean is really a great host and his apartment is well located, clean and very nice.
Our flight was delayed and Dean has the kindness to wait until the middle of the night and take time to explain everything to enjoy our stay there.
The apartment are located in a lovely quiet neighborhood, allowing you to ecape the fuzz of the downtown city.
100m to the MUNIand walkingdistance to lovely restaurants.
Loved our stay.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a great stay here during our time in San Francisco.
Dean was a gracious hoast, and did everything to make us feel welcome. He responded to questions and e-mails very quickly, with helpful tips on parking and places to eat.
The appartment was spacious and beuatiful – we especially liked the sun-filled kitchen and the terrasse. We were three people, travelling but this place could sleep four people comfortably.
The location of the appartment is fantastic - central yet in a quiet, residental area. There are many good places to eat and grocery shops nearby, and it is just a few minutes walk from vibrant Castro district. Buena Vista and Duboce parks are close by. Public transportation (the muni) runs literally just around the corner, and takes you downtown in a few minutes. Walking just a couple of more blocks, you find a bus that takes you to the short trip to classic San Francisco neigbourhood Haight Ashbury.
We would definitely come back to San Francisco, and would be happy to stay in Dean’s place again.
Dean's apartment was great. The location was perfect. I was attending a conference in Union Square and only needed to walk a few doors down to catch the muni- it was very convenient. The apartment was really clean and decorated nicely. The bed was very comfy. A picturesque location as well. Dean was really easy to contact and deal with.
Dean's place is probably the best value, design and location within San Francisco. It's literally in the heart of the city next to a bunch of transportation. The Victorian is awesomely architected and design - most Victorians in SF have small weird rooms because of partitions but Dean's place is modern, spacious and all the amenities are there. He was a great host and a great communicator. If you want to see what living in a real SF neighborhood is like, look no further!
Me and my boyfriend stayed at Dean's place for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year's vacation. We chose the apartment as we wanted a place that was unique, in a good area and felt like a home away from home. Dean's place was very elegantly designed and furnished. The warm cozy bedroom with a gas fireplace was great and there was a large kitchen that receives a lot of morning sunlight. The sunny backroom was ideal for lounging/reading and the bathroom was better than in most hotels. Dean himself was a really responsive host, and got back to us on any enquiries really quickly even when he was abroad on holiday. In short, we felt at home and were very happy with our stay there and we will definitely consider returning should we have the chance again.
Everything was great and made the stay perfect.
Dean was a few days in my apartment, He is a very nice people, polite and punctual in the chek in. The comunication was very easy.
Wonderful guest :-)!

I definitely recommend him as a perfect guest.
Hosting Dean has been great,he is such a nice and interesting person.He is also very tidy and clean and treated our home like if it was his.I wouldn't hesitate on hosting him again whenever he wants to.
Dean came and stayed with me in Sep of 2013. Outstanding guest who was prompt with all communication and very easy to deal with. Would love to have again!
Dean was here very briefly - just enough time to get some rest and catch an early ferry - he seemed pleased, and we were glad to be available to host such an easy guest.
It was a pleasure to have Dean stay in our studio guest house.
The place was left very clean and intact.
