Jon was a fantastic host. I was greeted with a glass of wine on the balcony and made to feel entirely at home. The bedroom and ensuite bath room were spacious with a desk and a huge wardrobe and loads of storage. Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hair dryer and piles of fresh towels all provided. Jon is great company amd has lovely friends and cooks a fantastic breakfast. The location is great, it's easy to get anywhere. The view from the balcony is simply.
Jon's place is great. The view from the deck is incredible. We enjoyed our coffee out there in the morning and a cocktail in the evenings. The bed is super comfortable and the room is large. We were not there too much, but when we were, Jon was very nice. He cooked us breakfast on 2 mornings and even drove us to the airport so we could see the beach. He is a wild driver, but I think that goes along with California. :) We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay with Jon again!!
It was a great stay- the room is large and the ensuite bathroom is nice! Jon was friendly and I had a great time.
Great stay in Potrero Hill. Clean private room overlooking the street with a shared bathroom. Nice shared balcony with a gorgeous view of the bay. Jon even made us coffee and breakfast every morning.
I stayed there for a month. Jon has been a great host. Very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy, so was the bathroom. The area is a very peaceful street, and the bus stop is 2 blocks from the house. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in the city, with good views.
This was my first visit to the States, staying at Jon's made it not only a pleasant but also unique experience, I felt like I was staying with a friend.
To be more specific...
The location. Peaceful residential area yet not far from downtown. Easy access to public transportation, T-line, bus 22 and even Caltrain are all within walking distance by which you can go almost anywhere in San Francisco and other places in California. For people who don't drive like me, this makes a significant difference.
The house. In art deco. Spacious. And the highlight is of course the balcony where you can enjoy a superb bay view. Sitting on the balcony, immersing myself in sunshine, this was how I started my day each day in San Francisco. In the evening, with the city lights in distance and stars in the sky, the balcony is a perfect place to relax, to meditate…
Last but not least, the host! Jon was very helpful even before my arrival, patiently answering my questions including silly ones. As soon as I got to the house, what I received was not only Jon's warm smile but also a San Francisco walking tour guide he prepared. How considerate! Although it was well mentioned in the previous reviews, it is worth another round of applause – yes, it is Jon's cooking! I had the best ever pancake at Jon's. The burrito I had from a restaurant was not even close to Jon's. Please do not put any ketchup on Jon's French fries, it would only ruin the taste. And the yummy omelette… Good things were just happening, Jon even offered me airport sendoff and a hiking trip prior to that! There was also a small detail, I myself didn't think of it at all, but Jon brought me sneakers to better cope with the hiking. Again, how considerate! That's all? No! I went to LA after SF, and received email from Jon telling me where to eat in LA…
For those who will be in San Francisco but not able to stay at Jon's (from my days there, I know how popular it is!), you may visit Jon's food truck (website hidden), so you can at least check out Jon's cooking - "A restaurant quality street food" said the proud chef!
best place we ever rent
jon spend hours in kitchen to make every day the best breakfast we ever had in usa ....
and in addition a great few from the balkony
I was super busy the entire time I was in San Francisco, so I pretty much just slept at Jon's place and only had a few brief interactions with him. The place was clean and Jon was pleasant when I saw him.
Jon is a fantastic host, the listing is amazing with a fabulous view and Trixie the cat adorable. I would definitely stay there again in my next trip to SF.
Our stay with Jon was excellent. He was extremely helpful with our lack of knowledge of where to go and how to get around... directions etc. Breakfast on the balcony was amazing! And the view of the city lights from the rooftop well worth the climb up! We would highly recommend Jon as a host anytime. Even Trixie was accommodating... as long as we didnt block out her sunlight she loved to lay in... Over all, highly recommend... thanks Jon.
