This was a great experience. Joakim was very gracious and helpful. The apartment was perfect for us, and the Hayes Valley area has a fantastic hip vibe. We'll definitely be back.
Joakim was a very gracious host. The place is beautiful.
We found this to be a dream rental (as did many other reviewers), a place which we very, very much hope to have the opportunity to rent again. As others mention, it's gorgeous, exquisitely decorated (but decorated in such a way that the flat is functional, not a museum). Moreover, the place is surprisingly large (indeed, each room is larger than it appears in the photos, substantially larger, so much so that we were very much startled upon first arriving). Yes, the flat is on the ground floor, but the bedrooms are set waaaaay back, so even in the foremost bedroom, no traffic sounds are noticed. (And at the back of the flat, where lies the main living area (kitchen + dining area + sunroom), well, you'd never think this place was in a city.)
We were there as a generational family, with me and my wife (both approximately 60 years old), my son (about 30), and my mother (almost 90!). Frankly, if cramped into two hotel rooms for the week we were in SF to attend the wedding festivities of my niece, I doubt we'd be on speaking terms even now, two weeks later. But when the need to escape from one another became critical, the size of the place (and the serenity provided by each individual room) were lifesaving (or perhaps I should say, family-saving).
What would we change? Well, the bath towels are much too large (too heavy), and the mattress in the bedroom closest to the kitchen certainly could be firmer. But, hey, these are trivial gripes compared to the overall well-being we experienced in being there.
Each of us agrees this place deserves 5 stars in every category. I must confess, however, we are slightly reluctant to reveal these feelings, simply because too many stellar reviews will price the flat beyond our means. (Joakim: Please do keep us in mind! ;-) )
So, in short: Fantastic rental! We envy you being there.
Joakim was a wonderful host--responsive, attentive, and hospitable. The loft was comfortable, classy, and quaint. The neighborhood was great as well. Highly recommended.
Very welcoming hosts. Lovely apartment with plenty of space for 3 chaps travelling on work - we never felt that we were living on top of one another. Very convenient location.
Joakim and Jamie were wonderful. The house was more than described. We were invited to participate in their home in every way, including sitting with them in the beautiful garden, having wine (with a bottle eft for us by Joakim!), and playing with their wonderful pets. The neighborhood is great: many restaurants and shops, lovely homes, safe, and interesting.
We had a perfect vacation at this beautiful, comfortable apartment! Joakim was an excellent, helpful host. We all especially enjoyed the lovely sunroom which opened onto the delightful garden. We already plan to return next summer!
Joakim's house in Hayes was perfect for our group. Great people - warm, friendly, and very laid back. The house itself was beautiful, with a very fun design style, awesome backyard, and a perfect location for checking out the city - it's hard to beat two blocks from the Painted Ladies. Surprisingly quiet despite being on the ground floor, with the bedrooms all tastefully appointed. Super cool cat as well!
From the time I initially reached out to Joakim about the listing, he was incredibly responsive. He was flexible with his time, so was able to meet with us for check in when it was convenient for us, and to our surprise, had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us in the kitchen with a card, welcoming us to the city and wishing us a pleasant stay.
His hospitality combined with the beautiful house made for a wonderful family trip.
Absolute wonderful stay! Gorgeous apartment and it was so big. Beautifully furnished and such a great location. Joakim was such a lovely host so helpful and quick to respond with anything we needed. I'm so glad I stayed here, great part of San Francisco to stay and not surrounded by tourists :)
Jamie was a very pleasant guest I really enjoyed talking to him about all the things he has going on. Excellent guest Best of luck in all your endeavors
It was an absolute pleasure hosting Joakim. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet him but he was very easy to communicate, was respectful of the apartment and building rules and provided great feedback regarding the apartment. I would happily welcome him back!
Jamie was a perfect guest! Good communications, polite, conscientious, clean, supremely personable. I'm really quite disappointed I did not have the pleasure of meeting him in person. I would welcome him anytime and hopefully next time I would be able to share a glass of wine or a stroll around Town Lake!
