Donna was wonderful and her apartment was adorable. I wish I could have spent more time there other than to sleep! Apartment was clean and quaint.
A very nice and helpful host. A very central and convenient place to stay in SF - Kimberly Safford
Donna's apartment is spacious and comfortable, and has paintings and other nice decorative touches. It's in a great little neighbourhood and close to a BART station, but on a dead quiet road. Donna was also accommodating of our late arrival and was quick to respond to our questions. We were only there a couple of nights but this would be a perfect base for a longer stay as well. Highly recommended.
Donna (email hidden)e flat was incredibly clean....exactly like the photographs. Plus, the location couldn't be better. Hayes Valley really is in the middle of everything. Donna even checked in with us to make sure we were having a good stay, and was so kind and accommodating. I'll definitely stay there again when I return to California!
donna (email hidden), available, informative, helpful but not remotely intrusive. on the last day when our taxi failed to show, donna was effortlessly very kind and leant us her phone as well as storing our bags. she really is a big hearted humane woman! the apartment was perfect, airy and light, peaceful and more spacious than appears in the photos, and has everything you could need. i slept on the v comfy sofa with dark blinds for a great slumber. a quiet, central, fun district a short walk to wholefoods market, public transport and the fun of the castro. wifi. a perfect stay at a great price. look forward to coming back! thank you donna.
The flat is beautiful, a lot larger than it seems on the pictures.
It's on a really quiet street, on the ground floor but has a lot of light, and the back porch is really nice to have breakfast on if the weather is warm.
Donna was very easy to communicate with and flexible on arrival and departure time.
Overall a perfect experience, and I would definitely come back again!
Donna (email hidden)--the breakfast treats were especially appreciated. The flat was roomy and charming. The location in Hayes Valley was great. I will stay here again on future trips to San Francisco.
We really enjoyed staying in Donna's apartment. It's light and spacious with a well equipped kitchen and large relaxing lounge.
The location is great - especially for first- time visitors to SF. It's easy to walk to Hayes Valley, Japantown, Haight Ashbury, Mission and SoMa. And for going further afield there are plenty of buses, streetcars & trains a few minutes walk away.
Donna (email hidden) - she met us on arrival and showed us round the apartment. She had left food for breakfast on our first morning & chocolate in the lounge. We didn't see her again (but that's because we didn't need to) she sent a message checking everything was OK and we always felt we could contact her for advice or if there was a problem about anything.
All in all a fantastic choice for a stay in San Francisco.
Donna is a gracious, considerate host and her flat is outstanding: bright, clean, and comfortable. The location was perfect for my visit and I hope to stay again!
Donna (email hidden)! She was accommodating and super friendly & helpful! Great location, central to downtown and the Castro Trolly. The house was well equipped, with everything you could need and super clean! Donna even prepared a welcome breakfast basket for us. Parking is a bit of a hassle, but we managed to find space just a block or two away, and there is so much to do in walking / trolly distance that we barely used the car. Will definitely try to stay again next time I'm in SF.
Donna was a very nice gal although she wasn't feeling well when she arrived, it was Thanksgiving, and the weather was poor. This combination can make anyone feel a bit out of sorts. I think she's also new to airbnb and is probably more accustomed to a hotel or bed and breakfast situation and, as such, may have had expectations beyond what many hosts have to provide. I would recommend her with the caveat that she will likely expect your place to be in the 4 or 5 star range and may be disappointed with less.
I rented an apartment from Donna for 6 years, and couldn't have asked for a better landlord. She kept the place in great condition, responded promptly to any requests, and was always available. She also became a good friend over the years through many a long sidewalk conversation. My wife and I were sorry to say goodbye to her!
