    A cosy and relaxing flat. Beautifully decorated with anything you might need. Furniture lovely but not too comfortable. Bathroom not on flat but across the hallway I thought that would be a problem but it worked out fine. I would book again! 09 April 2015 - 17:06:21

    The place was perfect for me. It was located 6 blocks away from my son's place. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. I had everything I needed. The bathroom across the hall was not a problem at all. Felt very safe which was important since I was traveling alone this trip. The backyard was great also. Tina the owner is the best to work with. She answered emails, phone calls and txts right away. She could not have been more helpful!!!! Her txt to check on me when I arrived was so thoughtful. Have raved about the place to family and friends. l can't wait to stay there with my husband the next time I come to visit SF. 25 April 2015 - 14:49:21

    This apartment is exquisitely designed and furnished. The bed, unlike many beds in rentals, is extremely comfortable, and we found the other furniture quite comfortable as well--it's so nice when design is both aesthetically pleasing and practical. The location is practically in the geographic middle of the city, so anywhere you want to go, it's not too far; Cole Street, nearby, is charming, with plenty of good restaurants, and Golden Gate Park is very close, too. I have temporary mobility issues, from an Achilles tendon rupture, and was concerned about being able to walk in the neighborhood, but pick your route carefully, and flat walks are possible. The beautiful tub was a slight challenge to get in and out of, given my recent injury, but would pose no problems to most people. The owners are wonderful, easy to communicate with, quick to reply to queries, and the neighbor down the hall is very friendly and helpful as well. We would definitely stay here again. 29 April 2015 - 19:43:21

    Very good use of space and design. Great location in walking distance to Golden Gate Park and many other destinations. Quaint residential neighborhood that's close to so much! 26 May 2015 - 13:14:51

    The location of this flat is great, as Golden Gate Park is a few blocks away and if you're a runner/walker/explorer this is perfect. You can also get around the city very easily. The flat itself is a great size for one or two people, and everything was clean and easy to manage. The semi-separate private bathroom wasn't a problem at all! Tina is an absolute gem, and when I couldn't find something she was so responsive and warm! Great few days of R&R in San Francisco thanks to this place. 21 June 2015 - 19:14:47

    This apartment was great - we stayed here for 5 days and reallly enjoyed it. The location was fantastic, really close to Golden Gate Park and to MUNI for easy access to the city. Pretty much everything you need is easy walking distance from the apartment. Tina was fantastic, really responsive to questions and had everything set up for easy access and living. Would definitely stay here again! 05 July 2015 - 05:25:44

    Perfect, peaceful location in a classic SF townhouse with character and convenience. Very close to Golden Gate Park, shopping & restaurants on Haight St and several Muni bus lines. Logistics of arrival were very easy, and the apartment is equipped with everything we could think of for a great stay. 15 October 2015 - 00:34:04

    The apartment worked out great for us. It's nice, comfortable, well equipped and quiet. The location is ideal: close to the city, walking distance from the Golden Gate park, in a charming neighbourhood, easy access to transportation, nice little restaurants and a couple of grocery stores close by. Great service from our host. 26 October 2015 - 13:14:33

    The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and it had everything we needed for our stay. The location is very convenient, close to transit, Golden Gate park, shops and restaurants. Tina (the host) was very responsive to emails, and the check-in process was very easy. I would definitely stay here again. 12 March 2016 - 02:47:37

    Me and my husband drove down for a week here while on vacation for our anniversary/my b day. We felt like locals for a week! We were able to rent bikes from down the street for a nominal fee and biked over the golden gate bridge and did the lands end hike on the way back. Its a lot for one day so I highly recommend to leave early and do this your last day as you will be sore..haha. But so worth the views! I also loved that we could store the bikes in the entryway overnight and not worry about them being stolen. Some nights we ate out, and other nights we were able to buy groceries from the local market down the block and cook a lovely dinner at the flat. My favorite place we had breakfast was 1428 HAIGHT patio Cafe & crepery, and our go to for lunch was Street Taco. We were even able to park for free right on the street! Just make sure you read the signs carefully for what days you can park where! Haight street Is well known for there quirky shops which would be super fun for a girls day but I mostly window shopped since I was with my husband. Overall, this place is in a great location that has a super cute/beach feel with all the basic amenities you will ever need and even a little extra. The owner Tina was very responsive and easy to work with. We hope to be able to go back sooner then later! Mahalo! =) 19 May 2017 - 22:06:00
  11. Charming spot with great views out bay window. Perfectly located within walking distance to public transportation, great restaurants, vintage stores and shopping. Health food grocery around the corner. We loved this perfectly decorated little nest and definetly look forward to a return visit to this charming rental. Two thumbs up!!! 20 May 2017 - 20:40:00

    Hello all! I am a travel nurse that has been staying in Tina's place for the last few months. WOW! I can't say enough good things about my experience here. To start- communicating with Tina has been a breeze! She is the best land lady and I am so thankful for her. She went out of her way to help with getting me a temporary residential parking permit, even before I moved to SF. She also worked with me in many another ways to make the transition of moving out to SF for work a piece of cake! Thank you Tina!!! Secondly- the flat! It sits in a great location in the middle of SF between Haight Street (which has tons of cute boutiques, yummy places to eat and grab drinks) and Cole Valley (adorable little area with local markets, great restaurants, MUNI stop). Golden Gate park is only about 0.3mi away. Whole Foods 0.2mi away. I honestly have only driven like an hour a week, everywhere I need to run errands is basically in walking distance! The furnishings in the flat are up to date, comfortable and welcoming. The natural sunlight just gives a nice light and happy feeling when I am spending time at home during the day. The bed is a murphy bed, which worried me at first! But it's SO comfortable! It seems to be a tempurpedic or similar. And a major plus to be able to lift the bed up (I use the open space with the bed up to work out). I also appreciate the pocket doors in between the bedroom and living room for privacy. I was able to have my brother/SIL stay on the bed while I slept on the sofa and we each had our own space. The kitchen has all up to date appliances (gas stove/stovetop is a MAJOR plus!). Also, Tina has the kitchen fully stocked with cookware, dishwater, tupperware, anything you could want and more! She also just installed a microwave over the stove right before I moved in, which has been great to have available. Lastly- the bathroom. The clawfoot tub is beautiful and great to soak in, water is hot, plenty of space to set your essentials out. Yet another space that is bright, welcoming, and refreshing. And very much so a nicely sized bathroom! Also- Washer and dryer! It is shared with the other tenants but I found that it is infrequently used. There have only been a couple times in the last couple months I had wanted to use it and it was already in use. Major plus!! Tina's place has been everything I could want and more. Truly a great find and reasonable price for the SF area. I'm so thankful to have stumbled upon this place! 25 May 2017 - 07:08:00

    This is a delightful flat in a lovely neighborhood. It's perfect for two people who will be seeing all the city has to offer. It is very well equipped in the kitchen and bathroom and it is very quite at all times. We will definitely be back! 10 November 2017 - 22:07:00

    This lovely little apartment was exactly what we needed for our trip to SF. It was within walking distance to a Whole Foods, Golden Gate Park and some really unique local restaurants. We recommend Padrecito - the Mexican restaurant on the corner of Cole & Carl. 18 November 2017 - 11:59:00

    Spacious and comfortable! Pictures are spot on, beautifully appointed .... convenient and so wonderful!! Area was fun, near great shops and restaurants, quiet street! We enjoyed our stay! Thank you! 31 December 2017 - 04:56:00

    The host was extraordinarily well prepared and gave thorough instructions on everything from door codes and Wi-Fi to laundry facilities. I arrived to a clean, well-stocked unit. I did laundry in the building and made food for my dog without too much trouble. The building the unit is in is an older building, but has a lot of interior upgrades and has been well-maintained. The Cole Valley/Haight neighborhood has some bustle but the property is on a side street with minimal through traffic. I found the access to transit and parks to be fantastic, as was the access to shops and restaurants along or near Haight Street. The only oversight I would mention is that the unit has no microwave, despite having a full kitchen otherwise. 11 July 2016 - 22:38:00

    We had a great stay. The apartment is sunny and nicely furnished, with an incredibly comfortable Murphy bed. The pocket doors between living and sleeping areas are a nice feature as you can close them for complete quiet overnight. The kitchen is small but well appointed and the bathroom across hall is just for this apartment. We weren't bothered at all by this as the only other person who has access to this floor of building is a very nice woman who lives in flat at end of all. And you simply cannot beat the location--having lived in Cole Valley many years ago, I can say it remains my favorite spot of SF...close to the Park, great public transit to Hayes Valley and downtown, and itself a quaint village with a few tasty eateries and markets. We would definitely stay again! 24 July 2017 - 21:42:00

    Tina's apartment was lovely and impeccably clean. The location just off the Haight and so close to Golden Gate Park was a lot of fun - we lucked out and got a parking spot right out front the first night when we needed to unload our stuff, then just used the carpark nearby which worked out great. The apartment is also only a couple blocks from a great little grocery market as well as a Whole Foods (though we never made it there as the market had a great selection). The water pressure in her shower was to die for! I'd go back for that alone :). The bathroom being across the hall was no problem. We loved having a morning coffee and planning our day at the sunny table in the large front window. Kitchen is cute and well appointed, if you have the time to use it! Thanks again, Tina! 18 May 2016 - 21:06:00

    Tina's flat is great for two people. The kitchen and bathroom are well stocked with upscale amenities. The towels and bath products are better than one finds in most hotels. If you are tall, you will really appreciate the shower. My husband usually complains about the shower heads being too low - but not here. I'm short, so the shelf with shampoo, etc. was a reach for me, but reachable. We were there for a week, so having access to the washer and dryer was appreciated. We were disappointed that the TV had so few stations available as my husband was unable to watch the NBA playoff games there. The living room furniture is functional, but not terribly comfortable for lounging. My husband had to pull out the couch a bit so his head didn't hit the painting behind it. Otherwise, all was good. I love the Cole Valley neighborhood and met so many nice community members. While this property is in the Cole Valley, it is also very close to Haight/Ashbury which is a world away in atmosphere. Laid back community for Cole Valley, touristy and busy Haight. We experienced both. Preferred the grocery on Haight and the ambience on Cole. We also walked through there to Golden Gate Park, which we love and wanted a place close to it. However, it is unfortunate that San Francisco has such a horrible homeless problem and much of it is concentrated on Haight Street and in the Panhandle and eastern edge of the Park. They congregate in groups and I wouldn't go through the area at night. They are not by this property, however. I would stick with enjoying the ambience of Cole Valley's many shops and restaurants. There is even a small dog park in the neighborhood - about three blocks away - which is a hidden gem and used responsibly. Walking to Golden Gate Park, you can bypass the groups of pretty rough looking people by walking west on an alternate street. We actually went to the panhandle on a daily basis with our dogs during the day and never felt threatened and the dogs loved it. We also met some nice people walking their dogs. I love all the green space. There are other parks that are walking distance for hiking or relaxing, also. 10 June 2016 - 16:35:00
