Really had a wonderful time staying here with my 2 friends! Check-in couldn't have been simpler and as the weekend progressed, the owners were always available just a text away! Highly recommend and by far the nicest Air bnb we have stayed in yet!!!

We had a perfect stay. The house was very clean and cozy. It had everything we needed. The host even provided plenty of choices for quick breakfast or a snack. We would definitely stay again.

Great place and good value for the San Francisco area. Enjoyed the Wii U and Netflix available for entertainment.

Chen User Profile

Great location. Close to SF downtown and SFO airport. Pretty clean and cozy. Although the WiFi is very weak inside the room. The communication is very good by the host and we don't need to contact them for further clarification. Overall we had a good time and if you would like to live close to the SF downtown area, this would be a decent choice.

Thank you for staying with us, Chen! We're working on boosting our wifi signal and will definitely resolve this issue.
