The apartment is very well-located, right next to Golden Gate Park. That is a big plus! But nevertheless, we were absolutely disappointed when arriving at the place: is wasn't clean at all, staints over towels, cushions, furniture and floor. Lots of ants in the kitchen and bedroom! If we would have known this in advance, we had chosen a different place to stay, but simply the pictures at airbnb do not agree with reality. Sadly, even if we showed Elbert and Katie pictures of these things, they denied it, more they called us liars. Fact is: we got some money back from airbnb. Therefore, we would not recommend the apartment.
The location and apartment were great! Overlooking the Golden Gate Park and right by the bus stop. We took the bus into town a couple times. The end of the line is at union square. The garage was a plus. It was nice to make a few meals in the kitchen. Safeway is a mile down the road close to the beach.
Great apartment in a great location. We were very comfortable at this well appointed 2-bedroom apartment right across the street from Golden Gate Park, and with ample parking. Our hosts were out of town, but we communicated with them throughout the stay.
As noted by another guest, the shower is a bit tricky, but once you figure out to pull down on the water spout, all is well.
We would definitely recommend this apartment to others and would stay again.
Katie and Elbert were great hosts. Easy to find the apartment, very charming building and a comfortable place to stay. A bottle of wine to welcome us was a lovely touch. The best part is obviously the easy access to Golden Gate Park, right across the street you can walk to everything!
We very much enjoyed our stay in Elbert and Katies place. The appartment is very spacios, clean and nicely decorated and has everything one would need (including a fully equipped kitchen). For everyone not familiar with US showers: it took us some time to figure out how to get the overhead shower running - the diverter is at the end of the tub spout where the water pours out --> pull down on it ;-)
We stayed in the appartment with 4 adults (2 couples) for 3 nights. The location is good since you can have a walk in the park right over the street and can take a bus to the city center (takes about 20 minutes).
We didn't meet Katie or Elbert personally but the communication was very quick and easy.
We would definitely recommend the appartment and will come back next time we are in SF (hopefully it will be a bit warmer then...) :-)
Thanks again for hosting us!
Katie and Elbert's apartment was awesome. Just steps away to the line 5 that leaves you in downtown (around 20 minutes). The apartment was warm and clean. And had everything that we need. Katie left us a delicious bottle of wine as a welcome present to her place. Awesome hosts! I highly recommend to consider this place when you are planning your trip to San Francisco.
Elbert and Katie were great and responsive. They accommodated our needs constantly, and their place is in an awesome location. Very near the beautiful park bison... Thanks much, we'd stay again I'm the future.
We had a great time during our visit! The apartment was very spacious, comfortable. and centrally located. Parking was easy and really enjoyed the comfy beds. Golden Gate Park across the street. Muni was easy to catch on Fulton Street. Would recommend to anyone that wants to visit SF and has more than 2 people in their group.
Great location and very cute apartment. Had a blast walking through Golden Gate park (literally across the street). The hosts left towels on the bed, shower needs and even a bottle of wine which was totally unexpected. I highly recommend this spot for anyone from out of town or anyone in the bay area looking for a little weekend escape. Thanks Elbert and Katie!
What a great place-- and such good people! The room and bed were clean and comfortable- lots of space and lovely hardwood floors. And Katie and El are awesome! Very welcoming (we weren't around for breakfast, but word is that El makes awesome omelets). Great Richmond location -- right near GG park, close to public transportation (and they offer free clipper cards for your use!), and the beach. Highly recommended. Thank you for making our stay so great.
Katie and El are lovely hosts and exceptional people. They offer a comfortable, relaxed, fun place to chill out that's right across from Golden Gate Park. The apartment is in a charming Victorian style building and the room is cozy and quiet. They are accommodating, fun, respectful, and gregarious, and always willing to give great advice on how best to enjoy the city. With easy public transportation less than a block away it is easy to get in and out of the city, and Katie and El offer a great place to come home to.
