I had a really nice stay here. It felt like home.
There was a slight miscommunication on my arrival and the door code had not been changed. Other than that, I had a pretty seamless experience. The apartment is really cute, awesome patio, good hot water in the shower. Kitchen had all the basic cooking utensils though I considered buying a paring knife since they were all pretty dull. Great TV, with connectivity to Netflix etc.
The apartment is halfway between a really nice street and a pretty sketchy one. Once I figured out which routes to take at what hours, I felt completely safe. There is a bus to the mission which very conveniently stops half a block away.
Communication was very good even though I didn't meet David in person. The apartment is charming and quiet and a cleaning service comes once a week. To reach it, you need to take small stairs passing a little garden, smelling a good smell of nature and hearing birds. The neighborhood is charming too with all the big hills (but the apartment is not on one of them, so it's less painful for our legs :)). There was no washing machine, but I went to a laundry 10mn walk from the apartment. The balcony was nice too, even though the sun reaches only a small part of it. My boyfriend and I had a great time there, thanks !
Great location: Close to Embacadero, Little Italy; Chinatown, a little further (20 min on foot) to Union Square; nice neighboorhood; a great variety of restaurants nearby; nicely decorated studio with all amenities (dishwasher; microwave) even with a private deck.
Very hospitable hosts. Booking with AirBnB for the first time I was pleasently surprised how much more that offered than staying in a hotel, especially when you are in town for more than two weeks.
I spent two weeks David's place which was beautiful, modern, and impeccably clean. The kitchen had everything you could need in it, including a coffee machine. The outside deck is just lovely to relax after a busy day in town. Within walking distance from the offices and with a BART station very close, this flat is in an incredibly convenient location.
I did not meet with David but he was easily reachable by e-mail.
We spent 17 nights at David's place which was exactly as described, modern and very comfortable. Lots of space for 2, the kitchen is very useful, and the private deck, although we did not use it a lot, is clearly a good point!
It is easy to get to the apartment, even after a 14-hours flight, we did not have any trouble in the neighbourhood. We walked a lot while in SF and David's place is pretty central.
Finally, we did not meet with David but he was easily reachable by e-mail.
To put it in a nutshell, a good place to rent! Thanks again David!
David and Jason were fantastic hosts, from helping me with my (heavy) suitcase to keeping great communication during the stay, they couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment is exactly as listed. The location is also great, really convenient. The ideal size for 1-2, spacious kitchen and bedroom and an awesome private deck for dining/entertaining.
Roisin was an awesome guest, we hope she comes back to SF soon.
My sister and I spent 10 days in David's apartment and enjoyed it a lot. The flat is as described very spacious and modern -so no carpets in the bathroom or the UK-tipical separate hot and cold water taps in the sink!
David was there when we arrived. He was super friendly and quickly explained us the most important things, but also left us a note with the internet pass word etc. A nice feature not mentioned in the description is that you can directly play your i tunes music on David's Hi-Fi system over the wireless connection.
We liked the Farringdon area a lot. It is a great mix of very central (we walked to many places fromn there) but also very livable (a quiet road with food shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance). I would immediately recommend David's place to my friends. The only reason to hesitate is really if you are a bit fussy about cleanliness. The flat could definitely have done with a bit of cleaning or hovering.
When we had a sniff at the sheats we realised they hadn't been changed. Luckily we arrived in the morning and just popped everything in to the washing machine (which is a tumbler at the same time -how practical is that!), so the problem was solved by the time we needed the beds.
Everything was super unfussy and natural (like we'd just use up his milk/tea and leave the rest of ours when we left). We had a great time in David's flat and felt totally at home.
They were polite, friendly, and respectful.
I would definitely recommend them to other hosts and welcome them back to our house
thank you for staying our house
hope to see you next time
Great guest. They communicated well and were a pleasure to host. They took care of the apartment like it was their own and we would welcome them back anytime!
It was a pleasure to have David as our guest, I hope he can come back and stay at our place.
Great guest. would love to have them back anytime.
David was a fantastic guest! He was great with communication before his arrival, and he left the flat in perfect condition on our return. He was a pleasure to meet with and super friendly. I'd highly recommend him to any guest!
