Chantal (email hidden)e provided all the information we could ever need before we (email hidden)e apartment itself was very welcoming, sun filled and tastefully decorated. We loved having cocktails on the large balcony and enjoying a few home cooked meals in the spacious kitchen. The apartment is perfectly located - close to all the action of Castro/Mission, but tucked away enough that you can enjoy peace and quiet after a busy day on the town. And did I mention, that the views were amazing?! Definitely the highlight of staying here.
The parking is definitely something to consider if you're getting a rental car - we had a bit on an issue with street parking, but I'm not sure much of that was related to this particular neighborhood or San Francisco, in general. Chantal (email hidden) when available - but we weren't able to use it this time.
The room layout as well as some furniture have changed since Chantal took photos of the apartment - so I would recommend a photo update to keep things current.
(email hidden), perfect location (email hidden)!
Beautiful apartment, stunning views and perfect quiet location close to Castro and Mission. I did not want to leave! I did not meet Chantal during our stay since she was on vacation herself, but all communication went smoothly and the house was prepared for us when we arrived. I was impressed by the instructions/pictures on where to find stuff in the house and we also went to several of the places recommended by Chantal in the neighborhood. The ice cream place was really fab fab.
Will definitely try to stay in Chantal’s house next time in San Fransisco.
Only really nice things to say about this apartment. Family friendly, quiet neighbourhood/street, clean and the best view ever. Thumbs up from a danish family/Copenhagen!
Staying at Chantal's place in San Francisco was the highlight of our three week trip down the west coast. Her place is wonderful, beautifully maintained with amazing views. She was great to deal with and very accommodating.
The natural light in the house was awesome (perhaps not at 7am after a big night out!) but it gets you out of bed and ready for the day.
It was great to have heating as well because there were a couple of chilly nights towards the end of our stay.
All in all, a wonderful experience and an amazingly beautiful home to stay in ... we were very fortunate.
Thanks again Chantal for everything ... hope you enjoyed the wine and gin!

Lovely apartment with great access to the muni transport system. Would definitely stay again.
We had a fantastic time staying at Chantal's place. It was perfect for our vacation and had everything that we needed. The communication beforehand to arrange all the details was excellent, and I loved that we got to prepare our own meals and breakfasts rather than going out for every single meal...it gets tiring eating at a restaurant three times a day for days on end, so this was perfect. You have to deal with hills, but there aren't many places in San Francisco that you could stay where you wouldn't encouter a hill, so that seems moot. It's a short walk to lots of different city transportation methods, and there (email hidden) - what more could ask for?
The apartment is even more beautiful than you can see in pictures. Full of sunlight, tastefully decorated and perfectly located off Castro Street. When in San Francisco we'll try to come back at Chantal's place ;)
The home was wonderfully airy with gorgeous views of the San Francisco landscape. The deck is an especially lovely spot to either start your day or to close it out with some nice cocoa.
Chantal did a good job communicating what to expect and her packet of local suggestions is especially helpful for newcomers. In our instance, she even arranged for us to have use of the parking spot, which was just incredibly generous.
I highly recommend renting out this lovely home if you ever find yourself in the Bay Area. All the amenities of home (and then some), while retaining the feel of living in a homey B&B environment.
The entire experience was lovely and as a first-time airbnb user, this has sold me completely on the merits of it. I will never consider another holiday without checking out the options on airbnb first.
This is a WOW apartment. Astounding and Kingly views of the city and bay from every room. For a non-native, I felt like I was soaking in San Francisco without even leaving the apartment. I couldn't recommend this place more!
Wonderful place, perfectly located, cosy and excellent amenities.
easy guest for sure!
Chantal and partner/colleague were fabulous guests! Highly recommend to anyone looking for savvy, sophisticated travelers. Would welcome them back anytime.
Thank you for staying. You were a great guest!
You can let her your place without any worry ! Very nice and reliable guest.
We had a wonderful time in Naomi's appartment. It's a large, clean, comfortable and decorated with great taste and style. The view over the bay is just amazing, and having breakfast on the deck was an unique experience. The neighborhood is fantastic and lively, offering many trendy restaurants, bars and shops. And Naomi is (email hidden), providing you with many advice and help if needed. Exactly the kind of place I'd like to have if I were living in SF.
