Great location. The windows are very thin and doesent close properly. Bring earplugs! The futon (bed) was pretty worned out but when we pointed this out to kara she was really amazing and bought a matress to put on the bed. After that we could sleep fine. The apartment could use a proper clean up, but in the big whole we really enjoyed our stay. We never met kara (got the keys from the cleaner) but she responded very quickly when we texted her.
Ok, but not worth the price. The apartment is pretty dingy - even the cleaner apologized for the state of the apartment, and said that she'd tried to talk Kara into letting her do a deep cleaning. The futon mattress is completely worn out - I was bottoming out on the wood slats. There's also a street light _right_ outside the window, which, combined with some jetlag, made for some sleepless nights.
That being said, the apartment has lots of potential to be great with a tiny bit of work and investment. The location is fantastic, down to the block it's on.
While we didn't get to meet Kara directly, Sasha met and let us into the apartment, and she's fantastic. The place itself is exactly as advertised; bare-bones and smack-dab in the middle of the action on Valencia. If rest and relaxation are your primary concerns, I should warn you away. Between the loud crowds at night and the municipal services early in the morning, you won't get much sleep. But if you're visiting SF for the nightlife, you couldn't be placed any better.
The place was exactly what you would expect. Nothing fancy, but a great location if you want to be right in the heart of the city. If you are looking to relax at night, be warned that you are right on Valencia. If you are not familiar with San Fransisco, Valencia is a very bright and noisy at night regardless on the day of the week.
This place was wonderful: great location, great asthetic, exactly what we were looking for and was quite cheap.
The place is very situated in the heart of Valencia Street. I didn't mind the noise and liveliness of the neighborhood but the apartment in itself wasn't that great. It's true that in the description it says "not luxury" but it wasn't clean and the bed is the least comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. Kara didn't even bother showing up to give me the keys and had asked the cleaning lady to do it. Communication was short and not useful. I guess if you're an 18 year old student the place would be okay but not for anybody else.
The location of the apartment was phenomenal, but the space itself could certainly benefit from a bit more upkeep. We cannot speak to other people's comments about communication because in our experience we didn't get a response from Kara even once. Overall it was a pleasant stay.
This place was perfect for what I needed. It's in a great location and has everything you need for a short term stay. It's a little loud at night but it didn't really bother me. If you can sleep through some noise then I recommend staying here.
Kara always responded very quickly, the apartment was in walking distance to loads of bars, restaurants and cafes.
The apt was clean and exceeded its description. If you're looking for an ideal location this apt suits well!
Very nice guest! Thank you for choosing my cozy guesthouse!
It was great to meet Kara! She was friendly, responsive and clean. It's always nice hosting another host!
Kara made a film in my house. She and her crew went out of their way to treat the house with respect and clean up after themselves. They also stayed in the house as guests. They were very nice, clean, a pleasure to talk with and respected the rules. Any airbnb host would be lucky to have Kara stay with them!!
Kara was a great guest- clean, respectful and was absolutely no trouble to host. I would recommend her to any airbnb host!
Kara is a great guest and always welcome! Down to Earth, well traveled, polite and wide perspective on life. A treat.
Kara is a very talented woman, artist, filmmaker. She's low key, so sweet, full of wonderful energy. A pleasure to be around. She used my art gallery as a backdrop for a couple of her new film's scenes. Very on point and professional, clean and orderly. I would highly recommend her.
Kara was a great guest! Very easy to communicate with.
Kara is a nice guest.The apartment was tidy and clean when she left.The communication was perfect.I hope see you again.Thanks!
It was very nice having Kara as a guest. She was very busy during her stay so we hardly saw her but we would would be very happy to have her as a guest again in our home.
Kara was a wonderful guest. She clearly communicated her plans, and she was very neat, polite, respectful and very interesting to talk to. we would love to have her over again. I highly recommend Kara.
