I have lived in the Mission for over 30 years. I enjoy referring guests to all the wonderful old and new places to eat, shop and explore the neighborhood.
My husband and I spent 6 days here for our anniversary. The location was very convenient and the studio itself was as lovely as the photos show--no odd surprises or inconveniences; very clean.
Temperature was perfect for us..the window opens to help keep it cool and the curtains block the light from making the room too warm during the day.
Anne was friendly and offered to answer any questions we had...check in/out was clear and straightforward.
Overall, It was a perfect place to retire from a long day of walking/sightseeing.
We'd go back and recommend it to other couples.
Had a great stay! The studio appartment was clean, and short way to the bart.
This is a beautiful cabin on the river, very near the main street in Guerneville! It is a lovely place to stay and Anne was very courteous and prompt with all details of the reservation. We highly recommend it and hope to be back some day!
Anne was a wonderful host, and the apartment was exactly as it appears in the photos. It's near everything, and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. There's a Roku, which was cool when we finally got too tired to drag on exploring the area. She even allowed us to store our rented bikes in the fenced alley next to the house overnight to keep the thieves at bay. The kitchenette is small, but perfect for cooking for two for breakfast. The shower stall is a bit small, and the shower head is low, but I'm a 6'6" giant, so that's no problem for regular-sized folks.
We had a really nice stay here over the holiday weekend -- it was our first time staying in San Francisco, and the Mission was the perfect neighborhood to spend it in. The apartment is on a quiet residential block just five minutes' walk from BART, Philz coffee, burritos at El Farolito, Arizmendi Bakery, and the bustle of Mission St (or Valencia St, if that's more your style). The space was cozy, but has a suite-style kitchenette, separate entrance, and gets lots of light and fresh air. House rules are clearly posted (separate your recycling -- it's the law!) and everything was as expected.
Anne's cottages were absolutely perfect. Ideal location, plenty of space to spread out and not get in each other's way, and just lovely. Anne was the perfect host, she's very well organized and has detailed instructions on every aspect of the houses, the river, and the surrounding area. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and probably will! Our whole group of friends talked about coming back.
Had a great weekend in Anne's cottages. Really cool for our teenage son to have his own space in the second cottage. Great view of the river, hot tub, canoe on the dock. Basically, everything you need out of a Russian River family getaway. And Anne is a very supportive and helpful host.
As a couple this was great little studio apartment for our 6-day stay in San Francisco. The neighbourhood is pretty and the area is quiet and close to transport options. Everything we needed was there and it was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others.
Fantastic place in a great location right by the Russian River. Anne was a very responsive host. Thanks!
On a previous visit to SF my friend and I stayed at Anne's other Mission space and had such a wonderful experience that we didn't even consider other options and stayed in Anne's Open Plan Mission Studio on our most recent visit to SF. The space is small but so thoughtfully organized and furnished and filled with fresh air and sunlight from the huge windows that the size was never an issue. Valencia Blvd and its shops and restaurants are only a few blocks away as is the Mission St. BART station and tons of people watching and fresh produce. Anne is beyond gracious and went out of her way to make our visit perfect.
