Everything is been OK.
The place is very nice and confortable. Margaret was very easy to contact, helpful and kind.
The neigborhood is fantastic and very well connected by muni with downtown too.
You have there everything you need.
We definitely would recomend this place!
One could not ask for a more comfortable, well-located, or beautifully appointed place to stay in San Francisco! The flat has been lovingly restored and is tastefully decorated, with plenty of living space for our family of four. Our teenage daughters stayed in the downstairs den, which left plenty of room for my husband and me to spread out in comfort upstairs.
The location in Cole Valley is super convenient, with a Muni stop just a block away. (We purchased a three-day Muni pass at Cole Hardware, just around the corner from the flat.) The neighborhood is charming, with many young families, and great restaurants and shops within a block or two. After a day of sightseeing, it was nice to come "home" to a warm, welcoming place and be able to just stay in the neighborhood for a great meal.
Margaret met us at the flat to show us around and introduce us to Cleatus. She answered all our questions, gave us restaurant and transit info, provided us with a parking pass, and even left us a bottle of wine. Her hospitality made us feel like welcome guests.
We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely stay in San Francisco!
Upon meeting Margaret to get the key and become acquainted with Cleatus (the cat), we knew we had made the right decision to rent this light-filled, spacious, yet cozy, home for our stay in SF. Once you get settled into this place, it is difficult to leave sometimes. Yet, delicious restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner are just down the street (some literally only half a block away)--I highly recommend Zazies (best french toast) and Bambinos (pizza, pasta, wine--all so tasty you may not remember eating it's gone so fast). You're also only about 3-4 blocks away from all that Haight Street has to offer--I suggest Martin Mack's spice-rimmed Bloody Mary for that perfect Sunday morning starter.
Although, I'm probably "preaching to the choir" on airbnb, I would so highly recommend this place over any hotel. The value is absolutely amazing. Margaret's hospitality made us feel like welcomed guests, rather than "just another customer."
Finally, if you are a cat "liker" or better yet, a cat lover like my wife (and me, but more secretly), Cleatus is an awesome cat: sweet, cuddly, and does his own thing. (And he loves treats.)
So, yes, I highly recommend this "Large flat in Cole Valley (w/Cat)"!
PS: There were six of us one night and we all slept comfortably. The two bedrooms and room downstairs with couch and air mattress were perfect.
Our stay in Margaret's flat was perfect. We spent a week at a conference near Union Square and the flat in Cole Valley is just what we needed to unwind and enjoy the city.
The pictures shown are true and accurate. No fancy angles were used to embellish. It really is as gorgeous as the images on the site.
Margaret left us maps, a bottle of wine and free reign to use anything in her well-appointed kitchen. The stove top is a dream! I would definitely stay her again.
Our stay in Margaret's flat was wonderful. She has a beautiful home and excellent amenities. Looks like it is straight out of Architectural Digest magazine. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to San Francisco.
Margaret is delightful person. She took a great care of the apartment where she stayed at. Recommended!
She and her friends were clean and lovely.
