One of the Best airbnb places I have ever been. The flat is nice, clean and quiet. You will miss nothing. Everything is at its place. Kitchen and bath is fully stocked. Internet is fast an reliable. And John is a perfect host. I can more than recommend this space and will make sure that I book early enough next time to get it again. :)
Response from John:
Thanks Tobais for the great review. You and Vincent were wonderful guests and hope to see you again,
The place and location were great! We had an excellent stay with a good accommodation. John is a great host, very thoughtful. Thanks!
What a lovely apartment. Everything was as it should be. Dealing with John was very easy.
Would love to come back sometime soon.
We had a great stay in John's hide away apartment. We were very warmly greeted by John who made sure we felt at home. The bottle of prosseco was a welcome introduction to our vacation after a long flight. The apartment was all we could ask for, space as well as every thing you could want away from home. We were given our privacy and John allowed us to stay a little longer on the last day as our flight was later which was great. Would highly recommend this place and the location is perfect on the edge of north beach, china town and great public transport. Great also to try new restaurants in that area. Thanks a million to John and Kina for their great place and hospitality.
We are a family of 4with 2 girls aged 9 & 6. We loved the apartment, it had everything we needed. We walked almost everywhere. We loved Cafe Trieste and the Natural Food Store just around the corner. We would definitely stay here again . Thank you John and family x
The apartment couldn't have been more perfect! The four of us slept well, had plenty of hanging-around space and the two bathrooms were pure luxury! Nicely designed and furnished, we had everything we would have put on a wish list; and that is without stepping outside. The real magic of the place is the location; within a block were all the great North Beach places to eat, drink and visit. Across the Columbus we found the best Dim Sum in the City and we walked all the points of compass using the apartment as the hub - what a find!
John was a great host. We were provided everything we needed including maps and information about what to do and see around San Francisco. As he was unable to greet us upon our arrival he organised for his neighbour to welcome us and help us settle in. Overall we had a great experience. Location was great and all the facilities he provided made our trip easier and that much more enjoyable. Thanks!
John was a great host and was there to welcome us when we arrived. The apartment is really nicely decorated and furnished, the bedrooms are very comfortable, and there is plenty of space to relax in...what more could you ask for! The location is perfect for exploring the city, and there are lots of nice places to eat and drink just a short walk away. John even provides a handy book of tips and information to get you started! We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend the apartment to anyone visiting San Francisco
A wonderful apartment in a great location. Little Italy just a stone throws for great eating. 10 min walk to either Union Square, china town or peer 39. Apartment has a new fit out so you feel like your in a brand new apartment. Thanks John, great place. Mark and Michelle
John is a fantastic host. We stayed there with our two kids and everything worked really easy. The apartment is really spacious and comfortable and we felt instantly at home there. Moreover, the location is ideally suited to explore the city. We highly recommend a stay at Johns place.
