Staying at Matthews house was THE perfect AirBnB experience: great room with stunning view over SF (Twin Peaks), nice neighbourhood and a lovely host! Matthew had all the good information of what to do in SF and he even gave us hints in advance, for example to book an Alcatraz tour ahead. If we visited the city again, Matthew's house would be our first choice.
Wow, Matthew was an amazing host. I have never felt truly comfortable in someone else's home yet somehow Matthew made it happen. The location is excellent with BART subway close by and many many buses which stop right at the bottom of the street. The house is located on a quiet street and has an AMAZING view. The room was really comfortable with lovely fresh linens for us and a pitcher of water and glasses waiting for us after our flight. The house was so clean and comfortable. I could not recommend staying with Matthew highly enough!
My sister and I stayed with Matthew, and his hospitality meant we had the best holiday ever! It was nothing short of perfect. We couldn't recommend this place more. The location is great, we were within walking distance to The Mission, as well as Valencia street (a place we frequented often, with great bars and coffee shops). It was easy to jump on the BART downtown too. Matthew was so kind and picked us up from the station, he showed us all we needed to know on the maps. The house is just so lovely, so bright, so homely and the upstairs suite is gorgeous! The beds were super comfy. We loved drinking coffee, and wine, and eating our breakfasts and dinners on the porch, over looking the stunning views. We loved chatting with Matthew, and hanging out watching Sherlock. Matthew was so helpful in answering any of our questions, and helped us with the whole planning of our Yosemite trip- thank you so much!
We had the experience of a life time with Matthew in San Francisco! We miss you and hope to be back sometime!

Matthew welcomed me graciously into his lovely home. Matthew was wonderful in giving me ideas of places to see and visit being a weathered resident of this wonderful city for a long time. He made me feel completely at home and he was so willing to help me with whatever I needed.
Matthew was a great host. He took very good care of us. He took us on a walk and showed us some sights on the map and gave us very good advice on SF. It was very nice hanging out with him and watching a movie. The rooms were clean and tidy. On top of that the public transportation was very good and you are in downtown really fast. Excellent, always again!
Matthew is really a great host! He welcomed me in person and showed me the house - which is a great space, very clean and well-cared for - and made me feel at home. Though I really spent very little time in the house because I was in SF to attend a conference, I always felt like I could make myself at home and use the whole shared space. The bathroom and kitchen were spotless and well-appointed. The living spaces I rented were also more than enough space for me and I could easily see myself returning with a guest.
A friend and I came into the area both having never been to California, and we made the great decision to stay with Matthew! Matthew is an incredible host and did everything possible to make us feel at home from the time he picked us up from the train station! Upon sitting down for a cup of coffee after getting situated, Matthew gave us a great overview of the city and all the ways to get around! Matthew also gave us some great suggestions on things to do, as well as helping us go about things we had planned to do. Matthew was also nice enough to let us have a couple of glasses of wine with him, which made us feel even more like we were staying with an friend!
Matthew's house is great and offers great amenities as well as spectacular views! The beds were comfortable, and the bedrooms also offered enough space. There was always some fruit laying around to munch on, as well as snacks, and great coffee. Also, you've got to be sure to take some time to have some coffee or beer/wine in Matthew's garden. It was so peaceful! The house is also situated just minutes from great food, lively bars, and access to all public transportation. We had no safety or security issues walking all around at any hour. I will definitely not hesitate to return here any time I am back in the city!
Matthew ist ein unglaublicher Gastgeber. Weil unser Flug so spät war, hat er uns sogar vom Flughafen abgeholt. Wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an wie zu Hause gefühlt. Er hat uns tolle Tipps für die Stadt gegeben, bei der Airline angerufen, ein Taxi bestellt. Keine Frage war ihm zuviel. Wir würden immer wieder kommen. Danke Matthew!
Being at the edge of Bernal Heights ended up being a fantastic location that’s super close to The Mission, which is a really cool neighborhood with a lot to do and see. Despite being in the same home as the host, the 2-room suite is definitely very private, occupying a full floor that you get all to yourself. One of the rooms is a really nice sitting room if you want to do some morning or nighttime reading.
Matthew was also a really great host. He was extremely kind and generous to let us into his home, and is talkative and respectfully conversational. He also gave us some good suggestions for places to go while we waited to be shown around town by my brother. Thank you again for letting us stay with you, Matthew!
Matthew war sehr hilfsbereit. Er hat mich beim Civic Center abgeholt, weil die BART eine Störung hatte. Sein Haus ist wunderschön und öerfekt gelegen. Meine Freundin und ich konnten und keinen besseren Platz wünschen. Der Supermarkt, BART und Bars sind zu Fuss in kurzer Zeit erreichbar.
I recommend Matthew’s bed, and breakfast, He is a very nice and friendly person, I enjoyed every moment in his house, he always enjoyed me to view movies, and I learn a lot with he.
His home is very close to a bart station, it’s very easy to go to downtown, or other famous places in San Francisco, you need about 5 or 10 minutes.
The neighborhood is very safe and interesting, and it’s very quiet.
Matthew is a very welcome host, he helps me a lot, and teach me good things and places to go in San Francisco, I felt very comfortable in his house, I could cook and watched TV, I really make myself at home. About my rooms in his house, it’s very good, two rooms upstairs, they are big, and I had a lot of privacy in my rooms. The bed is a big couple bed and it’s very good, very comfortable and with good pillows, of course a had a beautiful view of San Francisco, the windows of my rooms had a really beautiful view.
I’m very grateful with Matthew, thank you for all.
When was the last time, that you had a personalized napkin ring waiting for you with your breakfast? For me it was a few weeks ago when I stayed at Matthews beautiful apartment. Matthew is an amazing host and the places is beautiful. I didn't want to leave and this is the place that I will want to come back to anytime Im in SF. Great location, inspiring view, very pleasant host.
Matthew is the best host I've ever known. He is very friendly, nice and interested in help the guests with all the doubts we can have. Thanks for everything my friend!!
Matthew and I have been close friends for more than 20 years—since one year after I came to the United States from France. I can tell you he is always a warm and generous host to his friends and I know he is the same for his out-of-town guests. His house is charming. It has a layout that gives guests a lot of privacy and a lot of very nice space.
Everything is comfortable and the views are just great. I am an interior designer and I have helped Matthew over the years to make improvements that enhance the beauty of his house. And we always keep the many original features intact. You will be very well received there.
I had a great time at Matthew’s house for three weeks (June 3 - June 24 2012). Matthew is a great person and lovely host who is always ready to make your stay more comfortable. Also his house was nice and beautiful. I really enjoyed how Matthew took care about of details in the room and the garden. Moreover his house is located in a convenient location, Bernal Heights, that is only 10-minute walk from the 24th Street BART station, and the neighborhood is very safe and quiet.
Overall I highly recommend his house as the perfect place if you are looking for a room where you want to enjoy San Francisco.
If I get another chance to visit SF, I will definitely stay at his house again.
