Great location. Simon was very helpful and met us personally even though we arrived pretty late. Gave us quite a bit of local information which was very helpful. House had everything we needed. Overall an incredible stay!
The apartment was a nice place to stay in San Francisco with a bus stop right out front. It had nice light, art, and comfortable bedding. We enjoyed our time!
Great location and very helpful local tips and recommendations.
The host canceled this reservation 63 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The Peaceful, Purple, Penthouse is everything and more! Location, location, location! The hosts were very gracious and supportive throughout our stay!
This place was a good base for exploring San Francisco. There were 4 of us, 2 couples, and lots of space for us all - the place is huge. It’s up on the top floor and so you get GREAT views but is also up a few flights of stairs and so wouldn’t be good for anyone with mobility problems. It had everything we needed, with a kitchen (oven, hob), fridge freezer, kettle, plates and utensils. They also provided tea, coffee and bread. Communication was good. There’s a launderettes on the corner about a minute walk. Several shops, restaurants, bars and supermarkets just a walk away. It’s a bit pricey but so is everywhere in San Fran.
Nice location close to parks and shops. Good space and a gorgeous view of the city!
Great location close to a variety of restaurants and all amenities. Spacious apartment which is well appointed
A homey space and great location. The view is no joke and the skylights are great. Just a couple blocks from tons of cute restaurants and shops, and the apartment has beautiful touches to remind you of San Francisco’s black history. I’m hoping the space is available next time I get to come back!
Great location a short 15 min bus ride to town, the 21 even goes by the front door! Hayes St has plenty to offer with good food options & a few nice shops for browsing or spoiling yourself. The apartment is also perfectly positioned to take a walk to Alamo Square for a pic of the Painted Ladies then 15 mins on to Haight Ashbury. Apartment is spacious with 3 separate areas, very comfortable for our family of 4 adults. Loved the view of the city from the house, bit damp to use the back balcony which would be very nice on a warm summer’s night. Simon (who represented our hosts) greeted us and gave us plenty of information about the city, nearby food and sites. He also put us on to the Muni app which was a great way to explore SF. We thought about getting on the “hop on hop off”, but Muni was just as good and a weekly ticket wasn’t expensive. A great start to our US adventure. Thanks guys, highly recommend the Peaceful Purple & hope to be back in SF some time in the future. Forbes family (Aust)
