Great private room with private bathroom in a nice part of San Francisco at the far end of the Haight towards Market street. The property is on a hill and has amazing views. Kate was very pleasant, welcoming and accommodating.
Kate and her beautiful house beat our expectations in our first airBB experience. We chose to explore the area by foot and visited Haight Ashbury, San Francisco state university, and Japan town. Her house if centrally located and in a very nice neighborhood. The view from our kitchen table was incredible adding the perfect ambiance for our take out dinner and breakfast. Kate was a fantastic host and a wonderful spirit. I wish we would have stayed longer and we will defiantly return for another stay.
Kate's home is charming. It is situated near a park and among old Victorians. The bedroom is huge and tastefully appointed. Kate leaves multiple brochures about the city and is full of great suggestions for sites or simply the best way to get around town. Overall, a fantastic experience!
I stay a week at Kate's house, and I loved everything! House is clean and has beautiful view to see the downtown. Kate is so accommodating and nice and she showed me everything in San Francisco. This is my first experience using airbnb and it's great! I would definitely choose Kate's house again next time.
Fabulous neighborhood! Great views, convenient location to public transportation. You can get downtown fast. I found Kate very welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was really nice. I highly recommend it.
This was my first time using Airbnb. So I wasn't sure about the expectations of the guest and the host. I stayed there for only one night. Kate was very accommodating and friendly. She let me drop off my luggage earlier than the check-in time since no one else was staying the previous day. She also showed me where I could use her coffee, bagels, orange juice and milk.
Everything about the listing is accurate. It was very private. The room is listed as heated and it is during the day. But the heat is turned off at night (she mentioned it before I booked it). But since I liked a warm place to sleep, she gave me a heated blanket. However, in a hurry to go to sleep, I was stupid and slept over the heated blanket instead of underneath it. No wonder I was cold at night. So, nothing really wrong with the listing, but if you like a warm bed, make sure you request a heated blanket and sleep UNDER it. The room and everything else was clean. All the paintings, book, etc gave it character and it felt like a home.
The neighborhood is very quiet. I've never lived in a Victorian house. So it was a new experience.
Really enjoyed my 2 week stay at Buena Vista. Kate was very informative and helpful and is a mine of information on the area and San Francisco in general. The room is exactly as shown in the photos. Best thing about the apartment were the amazing sunrise views from the kitchen of the city and bay area. Definitely worth getting up early for! Easy transport links via the muni-metro system and a selection of great restaurants just a few blocks away on Church made this a fantastic place to stay in San Francisco.
Kate was very welcoming and gave us all the information we needed to be comfortable in her home. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed her beautiful house and eclectic art and furnishings. The location was ideal and very quiet. Even on New Year's Eve we got a great night's sleep.
I enjoyed my 3-day stay at this charming Victorian house located near Buena Vista. Kate was accommodating and very helpful in identifying local eateries. She also provided coffee and a light breakfast in the morning.
Kate patiently waited for me even I was delayed and showed me her beautiful house in the quiet, residential area. The room is as described, very cosy. The view from living room and kitchen is gorgeous, and even better from Buena Vista and Corona Heights Parks that are only minutes (by foot) away.
Only people depending on public transport with lots of luggage or with problems walking may find it inconvenient to reach the house because of the steep hills, but for everybody else the location is more than rewarding. And so is the "Feel at home" atmosphere Kate creates. Thank you!
Kate is a perfect guest. She is very friendly and she left the apartment perfectly clean. You can receive her without problem !
A wonderful guest, a lovely person. Her presence in our home will be missed. A delight.
Kate is the kind of guest every host dreams of. She is quiet, thoughtful/considerate, clean, and personable. Kate is not only welcome back, but I intend to stay with her in London! A model guest, a pleasure to host.
I have stayed at both of Kate's places in London and San Francisco many times, and have thoroughly loved both places. Her accommodations are clean, comfortable, stylish, and exceptionally well located in safe and beautiful neighborhoods. As a long-time resident, Kate is knowledgeable about both cities, and very willing to share her favorites with guests. She is, in short, a fabulous host who has my highest recommendation.
I have rented Kate's London flat on several occasions. I travel to London frequently and it is always my first choice. I can wholeheartedly recommend the flat for its bright, spacious rooms, welcoming views, and premier location. Kate is always very professional and respectful and quite simply a joy to rent from.
Access to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports is about as easy as it gets in London. Buses are easily accessible just outside the door. The neighborhood is one of the most envied in the entire city.
My wife and I just completed a two-week stay and and every detail was perfect. I will rent the flat again whenever I am in London. I honestly believe this is the best deal for accommodations in the city.
Kate is one of my oldest friends. Walking into her apartment is always a joy. The spacious volumes of this traditional, quietly elegant Chelsea home are infused with Kate's original and eye-pleasing style. It's unique - like Kate, in fact! She is a well-seasoned traveller, art lover and theatre buff, who loves to suss out the most interesting and unique events in town. She's also an ideal host in her London home, with plenty of suggestions for a great stay in the capital.
Kate's Chelsea flat is fabulous! It is in a great central location, close to shopping, wonderful parks and the Thames river. The flat is beautifully decorated and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Kate is a considerate, kind and helpful host. I would highly recommend Kate's place to anyone traveling to London. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
