Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and now San Francisco are the places I've lived. I work in wine sales and love to be active.

When looking for a place to spend three nights in SF, I was immediately drawn to the photos of Joanie's beautifully furnished apartment and its great location. We were not disappointed! As someone who spends quite a bit of time staying at hotels for work, Joanie's apartment was key to reminding us that we were on vacation and that we could fully relax.
Joanie met us at her apartment at check-in time to turn over the keys and welcome us with a bottle of wine and pumpkin ale. She was very quick to respond to text messages throughout our entire stay. We enjoyed ourselves so much that I thought we were checking-out on Wednesday instead of Tuesday (blaming pregnancy brain). Joanie was very understanding and let us have a late check out since we were on our way to Alcatraz when I realized my mistake.
The apartment is bright, airy, and clean. Building is quiet (we did not run into anyone during the four days we were there). A block away from multiple Muni stops. Walking distance to lots of great restaurants. Only tricky note worth mentioning although this is not the norm-- we arrived on Saturday morning during Fleet Week and parking in the area was a hard find. Once we found one, we didn't have to move our car until Monday morning when the neighborhood streets become permit parking and Joanie was able to help us out with that.
I would definitely recommend Joanie's apartment. Thanks Joanie for everything!
Joanie's apartment was like a dream! Half of the fun of the first afternoon was just looking around at the artfully designed decor and enjoying the space! As other reviews have noted, the apartment is more spacious than the pictures suggest, and it looks like it comes from an Apartment Therapy feature. She even had most of my favorite books arranged around the place!
Joanie was out of town, but left me clear instructions for getting the key and getting inside. I had a weekend off during work travel, and staying here was the perfect place to relax and regroup. The building was secluded and peaceful, the apartment sunny and quiet, and the bed was amazing. So comfortable!
The apartment is within walking distance to a number of great restaurants and stores, a number of which Joanie left suggestions for. I enjoyed Thai food, a salad from Blue Barn Gourmet, and even had a great manicure at the cutest nail salon. A TV with Netflix was a plus, as was the bottle of wine.
Overall, I can't wait until my job sends me back to San Francisco, so I can hopefully stay here again!
Thanks Lisa! Very sweet review :) I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Come back anytime.
Joanie was super nice and very responsive. When we asked for an extra set of keys, she went out of her way to meet our request. That alone was enough to make me want to stay there again. The bottle of wine was a very welcoming touch. And it is oh-so-close to one of the city's great restaurants, La Ciccia, and a great place for breakfast, Toast.
Great apartment, well kitted out and the free wine was delicious. Joanie was very easy to deal with. Muni trams and buses to the main SF sights and areas were easy to get.
The reservation was canceled 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Joanie's place is incredibly meticulous, very nicely furnished, sunny, quiet, safe, everything you can wish for. The location is perfect, equal distance to Union Square and Polk Street, so you have tons of options for shopping and dining. The Marina is just a short walk away. 5 stars!
Big place, at A nice area. Thankyou for letting us stay at your place :)
We had a fabulous stay with Joanie, her apartment is beautiful, and very homely with great decor. The location is great very close to great bars and cafés on Polk. Can highly recommend
I had the most AMAZING time at Joanie's apartment this past weekend!!! She was super easy to get in touch with for arrangements, questions, anything leading up to the trip and while I was there as well. I can't say enough about her gorgeous apartment, it was so sweet and beautifully decorated. I was traveling alone and it was my first airbnb experience so I was a little nervous but I always felt safe in the area/apartment - and I really grew to love the neighborhood and all the little spots nearby for coffee, lunch, etc. Its only about a mile up to the water which has gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge (being from the East Coast the time change had me up early so walking to the beach and Fort Mason with my coffee for the sunrise became somewhat of a ritual!) Really good location in general for visiting SF - I could walk to a lot of sights from the apartment and anywhere else I needed to go was only about a $10 cab/Uber ride usually. Everything was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and convenient. I have only good things to say about my experience!!! I can't wait to stay at Joanie's the next time I'm in San Francisco!
We loved staying at Joanie's. Great apartment and amazing location. Certainly didnt want to leave. In a perfect location, walking distance to some great bars and cafes. Highly recommend staying here
Joanie book for only one night but was very picky and expect a five star services, she was complaining because yes she find a towel wet in the bathroom, i apology for this missing. she see many bad point but never say the positive. i did a lot for to get inside more early then any check in and also flexible with check out. i am sorry was some work in the building but this is not my fault, it is occasional work that i can t control. i am not sure that i can recommend her, she is not easy going and expect a lot.
Joanie is a lovely host! Not only is her apartment adorable but its very clean and organized. I couldn't give her a higher recommendation!
Joanie is a pleasure to be around. She is efficient, organized and a delight to work with.
I know that renting from Joanie will guarantee you an easy, reliable, clean and comfortable stay!
Joanie is a warm, kind-hearted, neat and clean person - I should know because I lived with her for three years! Her apartment is beautifully decorated, cozy and comfortable, and in one of the nicest areas of San Francisco. I highly recommend both her and her place!
Joanie is absolutely lovely! She's clean, responsible, accommodating and one of the sweetest people I know. I have NO doubts that renting from Joanie would be a positive experience and one of the wiser choices a person could make when visiting SF.
