LOL. Smart, funny, good-natured and easy going. Definitely not as stoic as the pic might indicate!
I rented this room in transition from Los Angeles to San Francisco.
This is a spacious room at a reasonable (and generous) rate for the neighborhood. Public transportation and parking are convenient. The room is clean, the bed comfortable, and the neighborhood is safe/quiet.
Gavin is one of the kindest people I've met in years - a person of integrity, intellect and heart. I couldn't be more grateful to have crossed paths with such a lovely host, now friend.
Fantastic place to stay. The room is huge and Gavin is very accommodating. It's very easily accessible by all public transportation and many great restaurants nearby.
I had a wonderful time staying with Gavin and Nate in Noe Valley. The room is spacious, and is essentially an apartment within an apartment. There is a comfy couch and large flat screen TV with full cable just for you. The bed is huge and VERY comfortable, with feather duvet and pillows. Gavin is friendly, helpful, and great to talk to, while giving you plenty of space to do your own thing. The kitchen is fully equipped and the shower has great hot water pressure. Noe Valley is fantastic; 24th Street has a Whole Foods, great book store, bakery, cheese shop, flower shops, shoes and jewelry stores. The Castro is a super quick bus ride over the hill one way on the 24 bus, the Mission and BART station is a quick jaunt the other way on the 48 bus. I highly recommend this apartment as a place to stay for a weekend or a month.
Gavin and Nate are great hosts. They have a great place in an awesome area and I really enjoyed staying with them. They are very cool and quiet, but helpful and around when you need them to be. They both were more than willing to help me get around SF and offer me advice as I has just moved here.
The room is awesome, big and quiet. There is also a huge TV in it, which was very tempting after a long day walking around SF. I would highly recommend Gavin and his apt. :D
I had a wonderful stay with Gavin the house itself is convenient to transport access , Bart , Muni and overland bus system. The accommodation is also convenient to a lovely laid back peaceful area with a local whole-food shop with healthy foods , cosy coffee shops and reasonably priced restaurants.The host is a very warm natured kind helpful person , nothing is too much to ask , he goes out of his way to be helpful and gives advise about the area of which he is very knowledgeable ,
The bed is extremely comfy you get a good nights sleep.Basically I felt very safe there coming from the other-side of the world can be daunting but Gavin makes you feel at ease all the time.
It was a pleasure staying with gavin, he was very courteous and helpful. I did not have a laptop for the first few days, so he was kind enough to let me use his spare laptop. He guided me as to how i could get around SF and was very helpful when I was selecting an apartment to lease. The room itself was in perfect condition, neat and tidy. The kitchen was well equiped and I did ocassionally cook a dish or two. This is a perfect place to stay, for someone who is here for 10-15 days, or even a couple visiting SF for a holiday, coz its just a 5 min walk from the bus station, and a 15 min walk from the BART station.
The room is big and the bed is very comfortable, I slept very well. Gavin was very welcoming and helpful with tips to get around the city. We enjoyed some fine conversation and I really appreciated the use of his wireless internet. The location is handy to city transit and I had no trouble getting about. It was a very economical way to experience San Francisco.
Had a great time staying with Gavin and his roommate. Both of them are incredibly hospitable and easy to get along with.
The room itself is large, well-furnished, and the bed is *incredibly* comfortable and large.
A word of warning: cell reception can be spotty in Noe Valley, and that was especially the case in this basement apartment.
Gavin was very accomodating and the room is very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this room to others.
Well this place is in a basement garage and the pix don't do justice at all.the apt is dark and smells quite stale.. No ventilation. If I wasnt on a ?business trip and a tight schedule i would have moved out immediately. Good for backpackers and students ...
Gavin was a great guest (conscientious, polite, interesting, respectful, quiet, recycles and left the palapa exactly as he found it). I very much appreciated him bringing a care package sent from my Mom for my son. He is welcome back anytime and we enjoyed hosting him.
