    For the family of four with a baby it was a nice and comfortable stay. Location: The cottage is in close proximity by car to everything which made traffic a breeze. If you are planning to do grocery shopping the store Luckys is the cheapest version for all your needs. The highway is situated right below the cottage which was not a bother at all. Our windows were closed at all times so the noise was never an issue. Safety: It is not a posh area however we always felt safe and secure. There is the front gate and the cottage was not seen from the street. It had parking which was even more convenient and gave a great piece of mind. Host: Although we have not met Kristine the whole stay we were there she was very responsive and provided remote assistance and suggestions to all our needs. I especially appreciated her taking care of the packages I ordered online. Cottage: A very well designed space that accommodates 4 adults and one baby comfortably. A washing and drying machine was a great bonus. Kristine also left a welcome package for us which was very thoughtful. The space was clean and very well stocked, even to my high standards, with essentials including tupperware. Improvements needed: I wished there were no ants in the place. We are an OCD family when it comes to clean environment but it seemed no matter what we did ants would keep coming back in numbers. There was also a problem with a refrigerator that would keep creating puddles on the inside. We enjoyed our trip and the cottage was a great part of it. There are improvements that needed to be done but what place doesn't? 16 December 2016 - 01:12:00

    I loved staying at this little cottage in the city. It was conveniently located near major freeways and late night restaurants but without the crazy congestion that happens in the more major parts of the city. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet. this cottage was for sure home away from home with full amenities you can't get with your typical hotel. 14 February 2017 - 01:06:00

    My daughters, teenager and 2nd grader, and I decided Spring Break was for San Francisco. Never having been we originally booked a Marriot hotel. About a week before, I decided the hotel wasn't exactly going to be the best accommodations for us this time so I started checking out houses aka cottages in SF. We ended up here and not a single disappointment to be had. Very clean, very updated, adorable place, and having a full kitchen, full bath, and a washer/dryer was superior! Way better than a hotel... for us. We used our larger SUV two times during our seven day trip and other than our venture to the grocery store and Muir Woods we really did not need a car... BIG NOTE: The rental larger SUV fit through the awesome cottage gate but not by much... so I would highly suggest a smaller/narrower car which is best for parking around San Francisco if you were to drive the streets anyway. We primarily used the Muni light rail and Muni busses. The light rail stops less than a block from cottage so this was great for us and of course so convenient. We had a wonderful time and will be back!! Thanks Kristine for having us! Awesome Memories!!! 14 March 2017 - 15:03:00

    Nice and clean cottage with modern look. Near public transport Muni and supermarket. Parking for car (but do not come with a big SUV ...). Very nice owner who always answers very quickly to mails. By arrival a little present to wish us welcome and got a lot of informations concerning the housing and SF. We felt like at home. Just be aware that the cottage is close to the highway and if sensible to noise do not forget your earplugs. Thanks Kristine for your kindness. 01 May 2017 - 11:39:00

    the location was great, could not have asked for better secure parking, privacy & overall feeling of safety at this site. accommodations were fantastic, beds very comfortable, very clean my only complaint was the TV/cable service. Roku television did not offer live local, national news. although I did not come there to watch television; I would have preferred to see nightly news, MSNBC, CBS, CNN or the like as I like to keep up with what is happening around the world on a daily basis. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone wishing to visit San Francisco. It was minutes from everywhere we wanted to see & experience, except Monterey, which was a worth while drive. 27 June 2017 - 02:29:00

    Everything was great. Great beds and very comfortable place. We had all the comforts of home. It is near the highway but frankly I don't know anywhere in the city where you wouldn't hear traffic. I did buy a box fan for white noise and left it for others to use. It does help if traffic bothers you. The family on the property were so wonderful and nice. A few things for others: you will not need coffee filters, detergent, or towels. 29 July 2017 - 19:02:00

    My wife and I visited San Francisco for the first time for a friends wedding. Not knowing the area very well, I was delighted to find this little cottage in a nice part of the city. Access to the cottage was through a gated driveway which added a little more security. The cottage was fairly close to the highway. I am an extremely light sleeper and it really didn't bother me at all. Access to public transportation was only a short walk away. It took us about 10 minutes to walk to the BART station and from there it was just a quick ride into the city. Kristine was extremely responsive to any messages I sent her. While we never got the chance to meet in person, I got the sense that Kristine is a wonderful individual. Thank you Kristine for a wonderful place to stay for the week! 27 August 2017 - 19:25:00

    Everything was there starting from the usual like dishes, pots and pans over tissues in every room(!), soap for the washing machine up to tupperware-like boxes to our some stuff in the fridge. As we had record-breaking temperatures we found an additional fan at the front door, and Kristines husband within minutes when we had issues with the TV.. The only thing which was not perfect was a bit of noise from the motorway next to the location, but it was not that bad. Overall we had a very pleasant stay. Thanks a lot Kristine! 08 September 2017 - 18:23:00

    Kristine's place is nicely updated. The place was clean and had a very nice feel to it. It has a great kitchen if you like to cook. It also has off street parking. It has very convenient walking access to Balboa Park BART. It was a great place to stay. Would definitely come back. The only downside is that the neighborhood is only ok and the place is right overlooking the highway and you can hear the constant hum of traffic. 25 September 2017 - 12:17:00

    Great location, Muni right out front that takes you everywhere. 11 October 2017 - 12:36:00

    This little cottage is just off the 280, so you can adventure into SF and the Bay Area without paying SF's ridiculous parking rates where you stay. (good luck when you actually park IN the city!) You can also walk to the Balboa Park BART station, which adds another mode of transportation. It was also close to some of the more suburb-y comforts (big stores, malls) that you can't get in the middle of SF. Our family stayed here - we have 2 boys, 5 and 2.5 years old. They had a little bicycle with training wheels that the boys enjoyed, and the parking area is behind a gate, so we had no problems with them riding around. Be advised that you probably don't want to drive a large SUV back there, but our crossover fit fine. The owner was VERY responsive, responding to emails within hours. Also, they brought another little tricycle for our 2 y/o to play with, when they found out he was too small for the bicycle with training wheels that was there. The kitchen is more than adequate - gas stove, knives, pots and pans, etc. The accommodations were fine - maybe a little spartan, but everything is clean and you're not staying at the Ritz. At 700 sq. ft., it was a cozy space just right for our family. 16 November 2016 - 07:53:03

    Kristine's garden cottage was the perfect place for my family. My husband, daughter and baby granddaughter stayed in the cottage while we visited our other daughter in the Outer Mission. It was just a 10 minute walk to her house, and a very short walk to the Balboa Park Station. The cottage is well equipped and spotless, with very good kitchen appliances. It also has a washer and dryer, which was priceless for us with a little one. The gated yard allowed us privacy, a view of the hillsides, and a very convenient place to park. Kristine's family had orchids and plants in the yard, and it is a peaceful setting. Kristine left welcome snacks, some basics like soaps, coffee, some spices, tea, etc. She was immediately responsive when I contacted her before and during the trip. I'm sure we will book this property when we visit again in a couple of months. 29 November 2017 - 01:19:00

    Kristine's Garden Cottage worked out very well for our family for our extended stay in San Francisco. Having on-site parking was very important. Since we were there for an extended stay, the washer, dryer and kitchen was very helpful. Greatly appreciated Kristine's quick responses to any of our inquiries. Thanks again! 01 January 2018 - 22:35:00

    It was great being there. We enjoyed ourselves, particularly as we had our son and his wife with us during that 6 day period. 08 January 2018 - 23:03:00
