The detailed instructions and restaurant tips were terrific. This cute studio had everything I needed - and is in one of my favorite parts of the city. Thanks, John!
I stayed 2 nights at John's apartment. Check in was easy and John was a great/fast communicator. Great location in the interesting mission district and only a block a from the BART station, giving easy access to the rest of the city.
John was very helpful with advising us where to eat and what to see, not only in the Mission District, but in San Francisco. The studio was no frills, just clean, comfortable accommodations which is all we require. The building was quiet, which was a plus for us, as we are fairly early to bed. A coffee maker, clean towels and sheets, soap and shampoo were provided. San Francisco was cold, but the gas heat kept us toasty warm in the apartment. I was a little apprehensive, to tell you the truth, about having to find the key in a real estate lock box in an alley. Fortunately, we had no trouble getting the lock box open when we arrived. But on the morning we left, we couldn't get it open and left the keys in the apartment instead. John said that was okay, however. We were close to BART and a good bakery and I felt safe in the neighborhood and the building. Overall, I'd give John and his studio apartment an A.
Thanks for being such a great guest Martha! I just replaced the real estate lock - thanks for letting me know about the issue on departure.
The place is fantastic for a short stay! We stayed for 3 nights at John's place. It's easy to get to the Bart, and comes with a well equipped kitchen
John had very good instructions on getting in — made it super easy. He was very nice and gracious, even though we just communicated through text.
Absolutely phenomenal apartment if you are looking for a place to stay on a solo trip. The apartment is cozy and conveniently located in a fantastic location. John was accessible and the booking was super easy. I'd definitely stay here again.
John's place was as described. Clean, basic, convenient place to stay in the mission. Quiet street, very close to BART. Recommended!
We spent a few days in SF, the place is very convenient as it's a 2 mn walk from the BART. The accomodation is small but practical and cosy, and it's quiet even if acoustic isolation tend to be weak.
Instructions to get keys are very clear, we couldn't go wrong. John replied quickly everytime I sent message. Maybe there's a lack of view outside, but it doesn't matter so much.
Nice space RIGHT next to 24th st Bart station. Adjacent to best burritos in California AND Mission Pie. Very close to great dining, either fancy or low key. Also easy access to streetcar and buses. A great place to stay if you want to hang in the Mission, or explore.
John provides a perfect oasis in SF. His communication was excellent and the level of detail in his initial emails was fantastic. Access to the apartment was good & the apartment was as described. It was cosy, comfortable, clean & perfect for my needs while in SF. A huge bonus was it's proximity to the BART. He was available if needed & responded quickly. I would definitely recommend John & his apartment to others.
John was here from San Francisco on bussiness. He was very clean and quiet. We will stay at John's as airbnb guests when we are in his town. We also look forward to having John stay with us any time in the future.
Great guest, smart and engaging.
John stayed with us mid-week for 6 or so different visits. As mentioned before, he works hard. He would arrive at 10-11pm and be up and out the door at around 7am. So we NEVER saw him. He is very self reliant and needed no assistance. He left our guesthouse neat. He was a very 'easy' guest. He is welcome back.
John has stayed with us multiple times - please see prior review.
During the brief amount of time that John was around we found him to be friendly and respectful. He was here on business and largely came by to sleep.
John was a very easy, very simple, very low maintenance guest. Because of his work he left early and returned late - so except for his check in, we never even saw him! He left our guesthouse neat and I am pleased to have him stay with us in the future!
John was a great guest. I'm sorry I hardly saw him as he was very busy working and only here a few days. When I did see him he was very warm and friendly. He was also neat and considerate. Thank you John. You are welcome anytime.
John is an amazing guest! He's quiet, considerate, keeps in contact with any needs, and EXTREMELY clean, which is always appreciated! Thank you John, looking forward to seeing you again! Highly recommended!!!
John and I work at the same company, he in SF and I in DC. Earlier this year, I had to come out to our San Francisco office for work, and since John was out of town at the time, I booked his apartment on AirBNB. It was the perfect setup. John was attentive and helpful in the booking the apartment, helping me find my way to his place from SFO, and reliable in responding to the questions I had over my stay. I was glad to see that the area around his apartment was very safe too, because I had to make the return trip from the office late a couple of nights that week. Lastly, the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood have a really positive feel to them! The apartment's comfortably furnished and its windows let in a lot of light. The neighborhood has both groceries if you want to cook for yourself and restaurants ranging from casual to more upscale. There were lots of folks walking around enjoying themselves that weekend, and I enjoyed exploring. Since that first visit, I've been back several times, and had a low-stress, positive experience every time. Glad to have found this gem. Hope others get to enjoy it to! -Pat
I've stayed at John's place a number of times over the past year. Not only is the place excellently located in the heart of the Mission and 200 feet from a BART stop, but John goes way out of his way to make me feel comfortable every time I stay. The attention John puts into making sure everything is in order for me at his place before my arrival makes it obvious that he truly cares about clean, stylish, comfortable and hassle-free living, both for himself and his guests. He's extremely warm and and attentive, but in no way overbearing or bothersome. When it comes to renters John is the best mix of reliable and trusting, which has been a problem for me with other Airbnb renters who didn't trust me in their house or refused to communicate with me about problems I was encountering during my stay. I would recommend staying at John's place to anyone who wanted an authentic SF experience, to anyone looking for an effortless rental from a reliable renter, and especially to anyone who valued cleanliness and comfort.
I have known John for many years, and there aren't enough positive words to describe him. I stayed in his studio with some of our friends while visiting Yosemite and the San Fran area. His apartment was in a very secure building and a quaint little studio that would be great for anyone ranging from a traveling businessman to a family on vacation. It reminds you very much of a room you might see in a European BandB in that since that it provides you with what you need for night time accommodations. His place is literally a two minute walk to the BART and very close to both MUNI stops and a Zipcar parking lot(if you are member of the website). Just down the street from his place too are several very tasty Mexican pastry shops, a delicious breakfast place and an awesome coffee shop where I had the best cup of coffee I've had in several years. The fruit stands in the area are also very cheep and over rip fruit that is great for breakfast or as a snack while you are exploring the city. I would highly recommend John's studio to anyone who is looking for a great, yet relatively inexpensive, place to stay in San Francisco!
