Love Japanese culture, as much as its Hello Kitty.

A gracious, kind host. Spare apartment, well located, across the street from a park. Recommended.
Pros: Great apartment in a pleasant neighborhood. Walking distance to a great coffee shop, a good market, and Golden Gate Park. The apartment itself was very clean and roomy, with plenty of desk space, a comfortable king size bed, fast internet and a fireplace. Definitely a great place to stay! Host was communicative and accommodating to the fullest.
Cons: not many - there is no TV, so you're on your own with that - Netflix and DVD's will do the trick, and fast internet is a major plus. There is a neighbor with noisy kids who run around in the morning, and a different neighbor - an older Russian woman who called someone in Russia at 4am one night and screamed at them for an hour. I speak Russian so it was sort of entertaining - but fair warning - the walls will not block 100% of the neighbor's noises. It was quiet 95% of the time of our week long stay. Of course, neighbor noise is no reflection on the apartment or the hosts themselves; they are 100% rockstar!
