The place was so clean! Chloe was the friendliest little greeter!! We loved the bed and the little amenities that showed great thought in the preparation. It was a great escape from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco.

This is a nice studio that's been converted from a garage (but you wouldn't know it was a garage from the inside). It's in what I would call a 'working class' neighborhood. I didn't do much exploring of the neighborhood though. It's close to transit and a freeway which was its main attraction.

This is a cozy place. You can find everything in this small house. There is a Chinese market for 10 minutes by car. We can always fix problems through the communications with Rebecca. The little puppy is lovely. It spend a wonderful time here with my girlfriend.
