From San Francisco, California. An active Airbnb Host.
Kate's house is such a lovely place to call home in San Francisco! My parents were in town for a week, and it was wonderful for them to be able to settle in to Kate's house. She left us detailed information to easily navigate the city and her home. Kate was responsive to our e-mails and answered all of our questions. We hope that the next time my parents are in town that her place will be available again!
The house was great and the location was perfect for our family vacation to San Fran. There was great communication with Kate leading up to our visit.
We had a fabulous time staying in Kate's lovely home, and the whole family really enjoyed exploring the neighbourhood. We had a great meal at Burma Superstar (get there early and try the tea-leaf salad) and loved browsing in Green Apple books and the Goodwill thrift shop, as well as the local grocery stores (we also liked Trader Joe's). We didn't need a car for our stay, and walked to Golden Gate park (for a great double bill of the De Young museum and the Academy of Sciences) and the Presidio (although we got lost thanks thanks to cryptic signage!). Easy also to get the bus downtown but we really enjoyed staying in the delightful house, which was comfortable and stylish (with a great shower). Much better, in our view, than a tourist hotel downtown. Thank Kate for making us so welcome.
We enjoyed our stay. The house is absolutely lovely. Het is fully equipped and we felt very welcome.Highly recommended. Kate responds quickly.
I almost don't want to leave this review because we want to come back here again and again! The house is immaculately clean and bright...a modern, uncluttered look. Very relaxing with an open concept downstairs. The shower upstairs is awesome!!!! (Kate and John I don't think that shower meets SF "low flow" guidelines! ha ha) and I did manage to partake in the jacuzzi downstairs...ahhhh. It's very quiet but just a couple of blocks from Clement Street, where you can get coffee in the morning and choose from dozens of restaurants for dinner. One block away is the VERY frequent California Street bus line that will whisk you downtown to all your tourist destinations. We got the teenagers bus passes and they spent hours exploring.
We used to live in San Francisco and come back frequently. Normally we stay with friends but having this house was so relaxing, and we didn't rent a car this time, relying on the Muni. Wonderful vacation. Thanks, Kate and John. Please give US priority for the next rental ok? :-)
Kate's Lake Street 3 bedroom home was very nicely decorated, comfortable and clean. She left us maps and info about the neighborhood, plus provided milk and space in the fridge for our use. The upstairs bathroom had a big shower stall with a choice of shower heads (rain or spray); the downstairs bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, but unfortunately, no shower.
We had a wondeful stay at Kates home. The house is prefectly decorated and offers everything you need for a stay ... and more. Parking place at the driveway and nice neighbours too.
Location is great, between Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge (walking distance). Clement Street is two blocks away and offers a range of nice coffee shops, restaurants and shops to buy your groceries. We went biking in the area and the Muni takes you to al the other corners of San Francisco.
Kate also provides a list with nice places to go and responds promptly to questions by mail.
I rented this house for my parents over Christmas week and they were happy and comfortable -- the amenities are fantastic and Kate is a delight. I love this neighborhood -- so close to the Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge and you're just a few blocks away from fantastic public transit. Definitely recommend!
This was a perfect house in a perfect location. Felt like we were staying in a high end resort! Such a value. The communication was top notch too! Every necessary detail was covered. I have already recommended Kate's place to every traveler I know. Kate made a restaurant recommendation within a few blocks of the house that served one of the best meals that any of us had ever eaten! Very pleased.
We had a wonderful stay. Great position with access to local MUNI. Close to parks. Lovely home, probably sleeps 5 as to sleep 6, one needs to use a blow up mattress. Would recommend this lovely home to anyone wanting to visit San Francisco.
It was an absolute delight to host Kate in London recently - a great communicator, and really helpful with her feedback. The apartment was left clean and tidy and I'd love to have her back anytime - and I look forward to hosting her on any future trips to London.
