I stayed for 2 months and a week. Bathroom sink was clogged for about 2 weeks. One of the bedroom beds was unusable for about 2 weeks. One of the last days, the power was out all night and I didn't wake up in time for work. Host are great people but ended up traveling a lot so it took time to fix things. Location is amazing!
I genuinely could not have asked for more! Lynn's place is really lovely, spacious and well equipped. The location is fantastic and the photos are perfectly representative of the accommodation. Lynn & Mark were so responsive to any request, helpful at all times and so easy going, it made the stay a truly wonderful experience. The area is great with lots of amenities close by - some great recommendations from Lynn & Mark were really helpful too (coffee, grocery, restaurants etc). I can't think of a single thing I'd change - I'll definitely be back! Thanks for everything Lynn & Mark! Warm regards, Geraldine
Lynn and Mark are fantastic hosts. Close to my arrival I asked if someone would be willing to help me with my luggage up the stairs and they had someone in the apartment waiting for me to help me with that, even though I got a bit delayed from the airport. Upon my departure they were again flexible and let me keep the luggage in the apartment until I was able to move to my new place. I didn't have any issues during my stay--except one time I pulled a curtain down from its rod and they sent someone immediately to help. Another time I asked if I can get help with cleaning the apartment midway through my stay and again they were very accommodating and quickly arranged for that. I was a single person staying and the apartment was plenty big for me. For more people, the second bedroom is a bit small so not sure how an extended stay would feel there but for short stays it is certainly fine. Also the living room can easily be sectioned off like a separate bedroom. Natural light is one of my most important things and the apartment gets lots of light since it is at the corner of the street and an ally so even the bedrooms get a lot of light. The only drawback to that is that there is a loud dumpster truck passing through the ally just under the bedroom windows every night around 5-6 am and light sleepers might be awoken by the noise--it bothered me for some time, then I guess somehow I got used to it and was able to sleep through. Also, the apartment has a wonderful book collection that I wish I had time to read. My work in Berkeley proved to be too far to commute by BART from the apartment location so I didn't get to enjoy the neighborhood as much, I was often tired and just looking to rest in the evenings. Also the neighborhood is full of restaurants around but I realized after two months that yelp and a random walk to a seemingly busy restaurant does not necessarily reveal the best options. So I somehow wasn't satisfied with my food experience there--I realized that only after a local friend pointed out the really good options I had never gotten to explore. Ah well, next time. All in all, a good experience.
Lynn's place is absolutely great, has everything you need for a large (and not so large) group - including a washing machine and a dryer - and is very nicely located (lots of things to do around Mission/Dolores). Lynn gave us a lot a useful advices (we had a car, and parking in SF is not an easy task), and made our arrival and leave very easy. Definitely a place of choice in San Francisco!
This was a wonderful location and a great space! The apartment can comfortably fit three people with separate sleeping areas. We loved being right in the Mission, but on a relatively quiet block. All of the interactions and communications with Lynn were great-- we couldn't have asked for better hosts.
L'appartement que nous avons loué était extrêmement bien situé, à 10 minutes à pied de plusieurs lignes de bus permettant d'arpenter la ville de long en large. Le quartier lu-même était très sympa, vivant et plein de magasins originaux. L'appartement était dans un joli immeuble typique de SF. Il était spacieux et charmant. Seul bémol: la cuisine très peu équipée en vaisselle: il aurait été difficile de servir un vrai repas. En revanche, formidable machine à laver, avec sèche-linge.
