We stayed at Joshua and Jennifers apartment in January 2014.
They were very prompt with all communication and the apartment was very realistically presented on the profile. There is nothing outstanding that disappointed us.
Josh and Jen accommodated our request for early access and were easy going at all times.
Jennifer is like a Concierge ++ as she really genuinely cares about helping to make your visit enjoyable/special.
While they live in the apartment upstairs they are totally respectful of your privacy.
We really enjoyed the neighbourhood also. Cow Hollow is a really great district in San Fran. Walking distance to many many great shops, bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed brunch at the Baker Street Bistro. For people who like good coffee and think it is difficult to find in the USA - go directly to Peets on Chestnut. Nothing better. (they are also in other suburbs including Pier 39 and Westfield SF). Our favourite meal within a walk was at AIX BISTRO on Steiner Street between Chestnut and Lombard.
If you are looking for a great area, comfortable apartment and easy going hosts you wont be disappointed.
If you want to 'live like a local' in Cow Hollow then Joshua's apartment is your place. Close to the Union St and Chestnut St cafes and restaurants, and the Presidio, Palace of Fine Arts and Marina. Plenty of space in the apartment for a family of four, we had a wonderful stay and will look Joshua up next time we are in town.
Josh was a great host, very responsive and available. The flat was great, everything as advertised, very spacious and clean. We had 2 little ones and felt very safe in the building and in the neighborhood, with a first rate playground on the same block. Great visit!
We LOVED Joshua's apartment! It was so pleasant, bright and sunny. It was very clean and well apppointed with comfortable beds. The location was great with plenty of restaurant options, especially on Chestnut Street. Public transportation was handy as well. We didn't want to leave the apartment or SF. I will definitely be reaching out to Joshua again when we return to SF to visit our son. Can't wait!
We had a very good time in Josh's flat. The location in SF is perfect : very nice area, beautiful houses, close to everything, very close to the bus.... The flat is vast and very comfortable... the roof view from the deck is amazing. Good beds and full equipped kitchen helps feeling home. On top of this, Josh and Jennifer (who live upstairs) were very friendly (had a bike workout together) and non intrusive. We would definitely rent again if we come back....
ps : Europeans have to remember that like most US houses, it's mostly wood made and therefore has little acoustic insulation between flats and with outside. Not a pb for us but might be if you intend to party !
The Flat was perfect! The space worked out beautifully for us! Though we were out and about most of our time in SF, the Flat was a great home base! And the location was perfect, as well!
This is a spacious and well appointed flat in a beautiful neighborhood. The Baker St Bistro is just around the corner and the restaurant rows of Chestnut and Union streets are within walking distance. There is a convenience style grocery store nearby and more extensive shopping within a half mile.
Comfortable furniture and beds, plenty of towels, laundry access and a well equipped kitchen.
Great Marina and Presidio walks for the adventurous, or, join the hardy who hike the nearby stairs to Billionaire's Row alongside the Presidio.
Josh was welcoming and accessible, a terrific host.
Fabulous apartment, fabulous location. Just outside the grassy and green Presidio (great for woodsy walks and jogs, views of the Golden Gate Bridge). Short walk to the bustle of Chestnut Street in the Marina and Union Street shopping. Good access to downtown, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown and Fillmore Street shopping via bus routes in the neighborhood.
We were two adults and a three year old, and we were very comfortable here. Checkin and checkout were very easy and hassle-free with a lockbox system. Joshua lives upstairs and is available if there are any problems.
Don't miss the roof deck ! And laundry in the garage was a welcome surprise.
Joshua was a great host - very accommodating and promptly answered all our inquiries. The place was in a really nice quiet neighborhood, but close to many restaurants and bars. Would definitely stay there again!
Well appointed, comfotable flat in nice quiet neighborhood. Landlord on sight counld not be more friendly and helpful. Rooftop sitting area has great view of the Bay. On street parking on weekdays is bit of a challenge due to 3 hour max without local permitt. Great walking throught the Presidio, less than two blocks away.
