I'm an interior designer and love living in such gem of a neighborhood as the Dogpatch. Unfortunately I'm gone quite a bit and would like to see the loft used.
We really enjoyed our stay at Maria's loft. Everything was as described and Maria was very easy to communicate with. We recommend her place to anyone looking for a nice home to stay in when visiting San Francisco and we would (email hidden) again. Thank you!
(email hidden) to stay while visiting San Francisco. A short train or car ride from the downtown core, but a neighborhood all unto itself. The Dogpatch was a pleasant surprise...artsy and comfortable with very little pretense, lots of great cafes, restaurants, and bars to choose from, and the loft is extremely comfortable. It's well decorated but also depersonalized enough that you don't feel as though you're imposing on someone's living space. Maria was absolutely delightful, helpful, and non-intrusive. This is my new SFO home away from home!
Had a great stay in Maria's apartment. Maria was very accommodating and great to deal with. It was a very smooth process. The apartment itself is great. It's spacious with 2 good sized bedrooms, well decorated and clean. It's in a great part of San Francisco and with a couple of great spots nearby for breakfast lunch or dinner. It's a 10 minute taxi ride to Union Square, Castro or over to the ferry building on the Embarcadero. I would highly recommend a stay here.
My colleague and I had a great stay at Maria's apartment during a 2 week work trip. It was close to some great restaurants and just blocks from our studio and transit. There is some traffic noise from the highway, but nothing we couldn't sleep through. It was the perfect home away from home. Thanks Maria!
Loved my stay in Maria's gorgeous apartment. The apartment really was beautiful.... gorgeous design, great atmosphere, super clean.. I really enjoyed everything about it.
I love the neighborhood as well. A great mix between chic accomodation, and gorgeous industrial old buildings. Loved it.
I highly recommend Maria's gorgeous apartment, and will likely be staying there again if Maria will have me :-)
This was one of the best Airbnb experiences we've ever had. Maria's designer loft looked just as beautiful in the pictures as it did in real life. It was very comfortable and even inspiring to (email hidden) with the way she had decorated it. She gave us a bunch of very helpful recommendations of local places to go eat/drink on her website as well as telling us in person when we arrived. The dogpatch neighborhood is safe and has plenty of actual parking spots in front of the building. It was conveniently located nearby the heart of the city and to the Bay Bridge that led us to Napa. Very generous price for what we got out of it. Thank you Maria! We would love to (email hidden) everytime we visit Norcal again if possible!
We drove into town and parked right in front of this very comfy place in the dog patch. With an easy metro ride downtown and good restaurants within walking distance, we never moved the car. The kitchen is fully equipped and the apartment is very tastefully decorated. Would definitely stay here again.
Well, this was my first AirBnb experience and it was so great it would be really hard to top that. I've travelled with 2 other colleagues for business in SF and felt so lucky we found this place. The overall experience was exceptional!
Maria has (email hidden); Kind, friendly, polite, helpful. When we arrived at the unit she prepared a list for us with recommendations on bars, restaurants and near by locations we should visit. And we did and indeed were great. From local bars to gourmet dining experiences, her recommendations we perfect.
The apt was amazing! A three story loft with 2.5 baths and 2 bedrooms, very nicely decorated, very comfortable and equipped with anything we could imagine. I personally love cooking and having a great kitchen fully equipped (yes even chef knives!) was perfect.
The 2 large flat TV screens, Cable, Netflix & AppleTV made our stay definitely more enjoyable.
The location of the apt was also great. Right next to the freeway, one block away from the T Muni metro line, two blocks away from Caltrain station and 20 mins walking from AT&T park. The neighborhood was very nice and safe. There were some nice places nearby for drinks and food. Also, the apt is very close to Potrero Hill to which we enjoyed a great view of the city, open sports fields (Jacksons field for Baseball, Tennis and Basketball) as well as more restaurants on Mariposa str.
Would definitely book the apt again should it be available in my next visit to SF!
Maria's apt is amazing, especially if you appreciate design and art , me and my husband stayed there for labor day weekend, it's very cozy and big with everything you might need, the location was a bit off the city center, the area itself was nice and quite with lots parking on the street. 7 minutes walk from public transportation.
All and all we really recommend staying their,
Specially if you looking for something cozy, romantic and quiet, you really get a boutique hotel experience in that apartment, one of our best airbandb booking!
Maria was a pleasure to have stay in our apartment. She left our place clean and tidy. We had great communication before and throughout her visit. We would be happy to have her stay again.
