An American living in London since 1969 and San Francisco since 1965. Like the theatre, art galleries and museums, and playing bridge.
Great place to stay, spacious room, beautiful newly remodeled bathroom, I was only there 1 night, but enjoyed my stay. Location is great!
Kate was a very gracious and helpful host who gave us a lot of information on how to get around on our first visit to San Francisco.
She was a very pleasant woman and you will find her home to be very peaceful.
Kate was a gracious and kind host. My husband and I had planned to stay three nights but the east coast snow storm cut our trip short so we only stayed one night with her. The room was lovely and warm on a cool SF night. The shower was delightfully invigorating. We shared breakfast and conversation with Kate in the morning. I'd love to hear more about her interesting life. We hope to stay with her again!
You are lucky if you get to book this place for your stay in SF. The pictures on the site don't lie. The place is absolutely beautiful and Kate is extremely accommodating. She provided breakfast for us in the morning, everything was clean and comfortable, and Kate was a pleasure to talk to. Will definitely try to stay here on my next stay.
My stay with Kate was absolutely perfect. The place is wonderful and allows to see many interesting parts of the city (Castro, Valencia, Haight, Golden Gate park and others). Kate is a very nice and intelligent person who makes everything for you to spend a nice time. Also, the bed and linen are very comfortable, the room is lovely and the area is quiet and beautiful. Will return as soon as possible.
Kate was incredibly accommodating, especially on short notice. She is a wonderful host and when I'm back in San Francisco, my dear Kate will be on our top list for lodging. The room was very comfortable; there was lots of room for two people and the bathroom is magnificent.
Kate was amazing! Very sweet and hospitable. Thank you so much for having me in your lovely home.
Kate was absolutely wonderful and made me feel at home with her kind generosity and warm personality. She offered me delicious tea as soon as I arrived, and she had an amazing breakfast ready for me when I woke up. The room is quiet, very big, clean, and beautifully decorated. The apt. also has an amazing view. Plenty of free parking close by. AMAZING location and very wonderful hostess.
Response from Kate:
Thank you for a wonderful reviee. You are one reason why I take one day bookings
kate is very very nice, she helped us with the parking tips, the stamp for my baby's postcard etc. Hope we'll visit again.
Kate very kindly accepted our very last minute request for a room. We arrived on a particularly rainy day and Kate made us tea on arrival which we appreciated greatly. Even though we arrived earlier than check in, Kate was more than accomodating and made us welcome. The room is large and the bathroom nicely modernised and the views of the bay are spectacular!
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.
