I am an elementary school teacher living in San Francisco.
This is a very bright, comfortable, and spacious apartment in the Inner Richmond district. Served as the perfect location to get to all parts of the city that I needed to go on public transportation with ease. Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance and, as an added bonus, there was a farmers market right outside the front door on Sunday morning.
Great stay - highly recommended. One of the best locations to enjoy Inner Richmond dining and shopping. Whitney is a great host.
The setup: Wasn't able to meet up for the handoff, but Whitney mailed me my keys the week before which was great. She answered a few questions I had beforehand too, and the ones I didn't she addressed in a note with contact and internet info as well. Got in kind of late, but the place is easy to find, and the surrounding area is adequate for parking.
The digs: Really enjoyed the clean, yet lived in atmosphere. I always like piecing together the picture of your host's life from the pictures and posters they leave out, and it was cool seeing all the places these two folks have been. The couch was quite comfy, and watching the sunset from their little window sill area with some wine and hors d'oeuvres was a amazing! The bed... well, it's a bed. I'm used to a sleep number, so I always look forward to coming home to sleep after trips. The kitchen came in handy and was clean and organized too.
Location: Whitney's place is perfect for an individual or couple who want to explore everything within the park. The de Young was a quick walk away and every corner in the area was filled with excellent food. Bella Trattoria was hands down the best Italian food I've ever had, and the Sushi Bistro was pretty good as well. They even let you keep the cool little Aladdin sake bottle, which I also happened to see on Whitney's dresser! Also essential was visiting the farmers market right outside the front door on Sunday morning... persimmons and homemade apple cider? Yessums.
Overall a great place at a good price for what my ladyfriend and I were looking for. I'll definitely be back at some point!
Absolutely recommend this place and would stay again. Perfect location, great transit and walking. Lovely place with perfect sunset views of the De Young tower. Comfortable, clean, filled with character. Farmer's market outside on Sunday morning. Outstanding hosts, Whitney went out of her way to make the experience easy for us. These are the types of hosts and the type of apartment that make Airbnb so wonderful!
This was a great place for me! The apartment is terrific, and the neighborhood provides great food and hanging-out options. I awoke on Sunday to a farmers' market right outside - an extra treat. Whitney and Philip were easy to work with and most helpful. All great!
Whitney is a very nice and friendly host. The apartment is very comfy, and it is located in a very clean and safe area. I highly recommend it.
Great apartment in the inner richmond area. Easy walks to Presidio and Golden Gate park. Fantastic restaurants just steps away.
Whitney was a great communicator and an awesome host, i would definitely stay here again.
Whitney was a great host. The place was perfect and the location was great, walking distance to Golden Gate Park!
The apt is on such a cute street in a great location. Can't beat the price for a fully stocked apt in a wonderful area. Whitney was perfect to deal with. Always answering my questions and very helpful.
The apartment was great, and Whitney went out of her way to make sure we received the keys and that everything was sorted out for us! This would be a fantastic place for anyone to stay. The neighborhood is great, with tons of delicious restaurants, nice bars, and cute shops. It's not so far from downtown and there are plenty of options for public transportation. It's also close enough to the ocean that a trip out to the beach is well worth it!
