Wow is basically all there is to say. We spent 10 days there. It's a wonderful place, homey, really nice for my family. Some places claim they have a "cook's kitchen" but then you show up and the place has only a few plates and pots etc., but that wasn't the case here. It's basically as advertised on the site, the only surprise was that it was nicer than we expected from the pictures. I felt a real connection with the owners (perhaps the overlapping book collections we have or shared professions) which was especially nice.
Hi, Emily, we had a perfect time here. We've been to the Dolores park every day with the kids, eating mostly from the Lucca Ravioli store that you recommended. We wanted to tell you that you're very gifted having this beautiful house here in this wonderful neighborhood. So very nice that you share it when you're out of town. Much better than staying in hotels, no matter how many stars they have. Wish you plenty of success and happiness for you and your family.. Harri+Angelica+Alexander+Veronica
We absolutely loved our stay at Emily's gorgeous house. She is a fantastic host - super helpful, provided lots of info on the house, places to see, etc. - and made our experience (my first with airbnb) a perfect one. Her house is very comfortable and has all the amenities we needed and in a fantastic neighborhood. We had a party of 7 (husband, our two daughters, my parents and my brother) and it was perfect for us. Thank you Emily!
Staying in Emily's house was a real pleasure! The house is beautiful, large, with all the furniture you might need (incredible kitchen!), and the area of Noe Valley is absolutely fantastic. We had a great time in San Francisco, and for sure, when we'll go back there, we will immediately call Emily. Unfortunately we didn't meet her but we talked a while on (website hidden), she's really a nice person and made everything for us to make our stay easy. Emily, if you read these words thank you again!
