We had a great stay here. The mission is a grammar area to stay for a real SF experience beyond the usual sights...its full of great cafes / bars / shops and amazing street art & murals. It is edgy in pets but stick to on and around Valencia and you can't go wrong. This flat is perfectly located. Near loads of buses and the BART metro, it's kitted out nicely and the garden is a bonus too and really good little touches from your host like a detailed guide and welcome basket. CANNOT RECOMMEND MIRE HIGHLY!!

Stephanie was such a super host, welcoming and friendly!.. Even sending info before we arrived and helping us with any quiries we had throughout the trip! The apartment was just superb, light, clean and in THE best location, with all the main breakfast and eating places just a walk away! If we ever come back to SF - we'd be sure to stay here again!

We had a great time at Stephanie's place. It was really easy to get to, well located and Stephanie was an extremely responsive host. The apartment has a very high-quality finish to it, including comfortable bed-sheets, blankets and welcome snacks (even freshly ground coffee!). We will definitely be back if circumstances allow. Thank you Stephanie!

This was my second stay at Stephanie's place. It really suits my needs and is always immaculate, private and quiet. Stephanie is an ideal host - timely communication and available if you need her.

We had a great stay at Stephanie's apartment. First off, it is so well placed with adventures around every corner. Then to find the comfort, quality, and attention to detail, made my day! It's a really modern place. All of the furnishings and fixtures have been carefully chosen (modern recliners, couches, rugs, flooring, appliances, window covering, stonework, woodwork) to give that put together feeling. The decor is bright, cheerful, and welcoming, including fresh flowers. We enjoyed the state of the art shower and kitchen! Stephanie has thought of everything to make the accommodation pleasant. Also, It was a relief that the kitchen and bath were stocked with those necessities that you forget in packing. The beds, linens and towels (really everything) are the best quality, with extra pillows and blankets right at hand. I came home thinking, I want my house to be like this apartment. The windows let in a lot of light and you look out to the garden bursting with tropical plants. Out the sliding doors, is a nice space for eating or relaxing. When we ventured out to the streets we felt like a locals in the best of SF- great walkable streets, Dolores Park, Valencia Street's amazing food and shops, the Mission, the Castro. All in all, the apartment has such attention to detail. Hats off to Stephanie for her thoughtfulness to making our stay so enjoyable.

This is a great location and a very quiet private getaway (except for Stephanie and Keith coming into the backyard outside our windows). We had repeated wifi connection problems but Keith was very responsive and tried to help (not always possible). We missed a stove (although we knew we wouldn't have one). If you don't need to cook and don't care much about wifi (we did because we were also working) then it is terrific.
