John was a great host and the apartment was in the perfect location! I would definitely book with John again!

The apartment is in a great central location within walking distance of many attractions and surrounded by restaurants and shops. We stayed for a month and did not miss a car. John is easy to communicate with and responded to questions extremely quickly and we had everything to be comfortable for our month long stay.

John's spot could not be better. We had a really special month+ in North Beach at this apartment, and it felt like home by the time we left. The apartment itself is very spacious, clean, and had every detail covered and then some. The in-house laundry, super cleanliness, endless towels, kitchen stocked with basics, and quick walk to everything made it beyond five star for me. And being a half block from one of the best restaurant strips in the city didn't hurt. John provides a great guide to North Beach, which is such a special neighborhood (no chains so very authentic and fun) and a quick walk to the water or into the city. Only wish we could have stayed longer! Can't wait to come back, and staying at John's place will be my #1 choice in SF going forward.

We had a wonderful experience. The apartment was clean, very well equipped, with nice beds, and everything you need to make a comfortable stay. The washer and the dryer were very useful. The location is fantastic and the neighborhood very lively (bars and restaurants). John and his wife made us feel at home, if we come back we would like to stay there again, if possible.
