You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, the coziness, and the privacy. Close to Noe Valley shops but feels like a sanctuary a world away.

This room was NOT cleaned prior to arrival. There was a huge cobweb in the bathroom, hairs everywhere (on the floor, on the bedsheets, in the sink, all over the bathroom), and blankets and furniture was stained. I had to sleep on top of towels to avoid the filth. Furthermore, the patio does not lock which leaves the room exposed to entry or theft— I do not recommend this place. The location is fine, and luckily I was able to get a partial refund because of the cleanliness, but I would recommend you spend your money elsewhere.

Response from Apple:
This was a bizarre Airbnb experience. Guests can run the gamut when you've hosted a lot, so I would feel bad if someone doesn't have a good experience, and try to treat people kindly and with compassion, given that they are sharing my home. Meredyth's mother stayed in my place for one night. We did not meet, but I did clean the room and also provided several sets of extra sheets for the bed. Per Robert's review below, I have several sets of sheets and towels. I've been hosting for several years and as evinced by my other reviews, guests have never had an issue with cleanliness. I felt bad that her mother was unsatisfied so I I proactively offered her a refund when she told me she was unsatisfied, which wasn't until the following day. That said, Meredyth did not let me know she had an issue with the room. If she had told me I would have gladly refunded her and called Airbnb to reaccommodate her. Secondly, the doors do lock, but Meredyth didn't know how to lock them and didn't let me know that was the case.

Quiet, private, comfortable room with a private bathroom on a quiet block in a beautiful neighborhood. Great host! Great communication and extremely hospitable. Would stay again!

Much more than a private room, this is more of a home within a home. Down the spiral staircase off the main entry and you have three levels all with the same great backyard view. The bedroom is one tier up with three more steps above to a full bathroom with more towels than ever I could use in a month, and a full size washer dryer room off the small hall. On the level below the bedroom, at the foot of the spiral stair, a second living space (and added sleeping/couch option) with French windows provide private access to the garden beyond - wonderfully calm and peaceful in the fresh quiet hillside air from open windows . Both the bedroom and lower level have working spaces - the former I used for late night the other for early morning. Overlooking the entire backyard is the shared kitchen space on the main entry level. Outside a separate wooden stair leads directly down to the garden off the entry walkway neatly hidden behind a door to the side of the main building. Safe, spacious and serene, Apple's hillside haven is somewhere I'd happily stay again, and again, and again.

Very clean and lovely looking spot with great access to the Mission as well as the rest of SF. Everything was well taken care of from check-in to check-out, no issue finding the spot, would choose to come here again next time I visit the city!

Apple's place is really special - the room is downstairs on a separate floor to Apple's living space and has direct access to a stunning, secluded garden. I didn't actually meet Apple whilst I was staying but that didn't matter a bit - Apple communicated brilliantly: efficiently and proactively via messages. I don't hesitate for a second to give this property 5* and hope to be back myself before too long. Thanks!

Great host! The house was as pictured and a very cozy spot. You get the entire downstairs area and it's a great space. Highly recommend!

Apple's home is lovely, with a hilltop view of the city and a peaceful garden to enjoy the beautiful Northern California weather. The room itself is very private - you have the whole downstairs to yourself - and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Apple was super accommodating, fun to talk to, and she made check-in a breeze - I'd happily stay here again on a future trip to SF!

Hi, I'm Apple. I've lived in the wonderful city of San Francisco for twelve years. They say that after 10 years of living in a city, you are considered a local. That said, I am always learning about the wonderful things that San Francisco has to offer!
