What Past Guests Are Saying
Adelaide, South Australia
Location, comfort and location!
We loved every minute of staying in Taya's apartment in San Francisco. It was so incredibly well positioned, right near Golden Gate Park, the Muni to get to downtown, corner cafe's, supermarkets etc. I could go on.
The rooms are very well appointed, especially the TV in our sons room. He now wants one wherever we stay while on holiday in the us! The beds and the couch were comfortable and the kitchen is stocked with basic necessities like sugar, flour, tea, coffee etc. it made arriving there after a 23 hour journey that much more comfortable. Another huge benefit is that there is on site secure car parking. A total benefit in San Francisco!
My husband I will definitely return to SF (we fell in love with it and I'm now hinting that he should get a job there when our son grows up). Taya is always very quick in communicating with you if you have any questions prior to arrival and even during your stay there, you can call her or any of her partners to ask the silliest question like "I want to go to a really good (say) Vietnamese restaurant. Do you know of any" or "I'm lost, how do I get home". An absolute pleasure to stay there.
Negatives, there are only 2 I can think of.
1. It is on the first floor so if you are not very ambulatory, the stairs might be an issue.
2. Save your quarters as you will need them to do your clothes washing and drying (roughly $3 for a wash and dry) and the washer/dryer are in the basement car park.
Outstanding accomodations and accomodating Hosts
We arrived very late at night from the east coast, but Peter met us without complaint, helped with the luggage and gave us a detailed tour explaing how the various appliances worked and where to find things. The apartment was very well stocked with the basics and there was a welcome basket of fruit and a bottle of wine. The apartment was spacious and well furnished and the large terrace was wonderful. The neighborhood was quiet and very accessible. A major plus was the garage. Taya was very accomodating helping with the delivery of some equipment to the apartment before our arrival and arranging for an extra parking place for an overnight visitor we had. All in all a very pleasant experience over a six night stay and we will definitely stay again when we go back to San Francisco.
New Hope, Pennsylvania
Everything we needed, including parking!
We stayed in Taya's apartment for spring break with our two teenagers. The apartment was super-clean and more outfitted than any other place we have ever rented: not only pots/pans/plates, but basics like salt, pepper, sugar, tea, etc. A generous fruit basket awaited our arrival and we enjoyed it out on the beautiful and peaceful deck.
The beds were comfortable and roomy and we had 3 TVs so the few minutes of downtime didnt result in any remote-control disputes! Lots of visitor guides and information were provided and we felt right at home after a thorough and warm orientation from Victoria, who got us settled in.
This is a great place for a family with kids, even little ones. Would love to go back again soon.
We chose this apartment because it had received so many 5 star reviews on Tripadvisor and we chose wisely! The email correspondence with Taya was effortless and informative. We arrived late evening and Peter met us and settled us in. The The apartment is as beautiful as the photos indicate and the deck is a real bonus. As other reviews have said, the kitchen is well equipped and you lack nothing. Lots and lots of fluffy white towels! The large bowl of fresh fruit was very welcome. It was particularly good for us having use of the laptop and telephone as we had no mobile phone or internet with us. Getting around town on the Muni is easy. We bought a three day pass at Market Street and rode the buses, trains and cable-cars to our hearts' content! We also walked up to Golden Gate Park in 10 minutes. What a fabulous location and neighbourhood. Don't hesitate, book this apartment before someone else snaps it up.
It was a very,very good stay in this house.
This apartment is Excelent for stay with your family comfortable like our house and the barbecue was amazing,and the outside and backyard that this property has is so nice to enjoy the children and the adults.
The kitchen are whole and perfect to cook for several days and the only thing that I suggest is a blender to the kitchen.
They have in the garage a wash and a dryer machine that was so important for us.and about the instalations, TV,DVD and movies my family loved to have one of this equipament in all the rooms.
Our stay was wonderful ,awesome.
Thank you for the wine,organics fruits and the delicious coffee that you left for us.It was so kind,so cute and we felt thankful.
100%better than expected
In every single aspect a perfect stay in San Francisco,
The home perfectly equipped and lot of details, make you feel like at home.
Loved this place! Very convenient to park and stores. Check in/out was simple and convenient even with a 3 hr flight delay. We will definitely go back!
We had a great vacation!
Our family traveled after Christmas to San Francisco and had a great vacation! Choosing this apartment was definitely,a very good decision.
We really enjoyed it, and took advantage of the great facilities and amenities provided within it. Besides that the apartment is in perfect condition and that all our needs were covered (full kitchen, 5 beds, heating system, location, safe area, etc.) we had a great New Year´s celebration having barbecue and enjoyed its large deck.
We hope to be back in the future! Thanks Taya!!
Dunedin, New Zealand
Superb San Francisco apartment
All the enthusiastic reviews of this property are correct. This is a great place to stay, has excellent facilities, and the owners bend over backwards to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. There are lots of additional touches that make this vacation rental stand out from the complimentary bottle of wine on arrival, the bowl of fruit, the herbs and spices, coffee, tea and other pantry supplies, to the provision of WiFi, computer and printer, cable TV, good coffee maker, BBQ, laundry facilities and very comfortable furnishings throughout. The apartment is close to an easy bus route to the central city and very close to Golden Gate Park. I recommend it very highly indeed.
Looking forward to my next return.
Taya and Victoria are great to deal, the house is all what is described and more. Our family enjoyed our stay. The house is in a great location to bus stop, restaurants and many attractions. Looking forward to our next stay!
Great Place to live in SF !!
The unit is located not too far from golden gate and downtown. The unit come with a private parking lot is definitely a plus and convenient for us. Me and my friends really appreciate the room. It looks exactly the same as the photos. Moreover the room has everything we need such as towel, soap, shampoo, hair dryer, extra pillow and mattress. We're very impress with the kitchenware. The owner provide everything for us even seasoning.
For the check-in, we postponed them for check-in time twice due to our delay but they were very nice and very ready for our check-in.
We really enjoyed our stay and definitely come back again for next visit. This is a great place to live in San Francisco!!
Comfortable place in a great location
Loved staying here and will do so again. Highly recommend to everyone.
Steve and Alyssa
Apartment #2 is truly wonderful. It had just about anything you could need with a fully equipped kitchen, towels, flat screen tv in every room and they also included a laptop with wifi and printer. It was impeccably clean, bright, and spacious. Apartment #2 also had a deck with a gas barbecue, 3-seater swing, and a picnic table. Also parking was provided which was a great asset as street parking was hard to find.
Location was great as just around the corner was a coffee shop and restaurants. Markets were just a few minutes away. Ocean Bean was minutes away and Golden Gate Park was a few blocks away.
Taya was a gracious and professional host and very accommodating to our needs.
We loved this apartment and would definitely come back in a heartbeat.
This apartment was the perfect base for our visit to San Francisco. The furnishings were new and clean, the beds were comfortable and the location is safe and peaceful. Taya was a gracious and professional host. We hope to come back sometime.
St. Ives, Cornwall, UK
Great apartment in a great position
Communication before the rental was excellent, including the service we received when we had to cancel our reservation and re-book for later in the year. The apartment was very clean and well stocked including great local coffee beans! All amenities worked fine, the deck area was very good and we enjoyed using the barbeque (despite the San Francisco fog we had one evening). Very convenient and easy to get the bus into town, virtually to the end of the cable car line (35 mins to Union Sq. without changing bus).
Garage was very useful, very easy north and south freeway access.
Cliff House was great for both Sunday brunch and for very good quality evening dining.
Very well-equiped apartment
The owners were great and very welcoming. The apartment was in excellent condition and had just about anything you could need. We went for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival and it was only about 15 mins walk to the Golden Gate park. There was a laptop and printer as well as travel guides to help plan out our days. The patio was very nice too, and I'm sure if we had more time we would've used the BBQ. There were firm and soft beds so everyone could have their preference. If I had any warning to share about the apartment, it would just be that if there's 6 of you staying in the apartment, there's only one bathroom.
Wonderful Condo for your "Home away from Home".
From the moment that we arrived, til the day we left - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful SF condo. We were warmly greeted by Victoria, who showed us everything that we needed to know and also answered all of our questions- even typical tourist ones. The condo was very clean, and was equipped with all the amenities that you would need to stay for an extended period. The owners have thought of everything that would be needed to feel at home in your 'home-away-from-home". We grilled out much of the time and enjoyed the deck. The beds were comfy. The Muni was a short 1 block walk, and took us to many areas of the city (some thru transfers). Having the garage parking space was awesome, as it is sometimes hard to find a spot to park on the street. There were many SF books to read and a binder with local information, such as restaurants and their menus. We would totally recommend this property for a stay in SF. The neighborhood was quiet and we always felt safe. Although this property can hold up to 7 people, that would be tough with its one bathroom. Apparently the owner has other properties that can accommodate a larger group.
I love america. It is fun.
So reads the first line of our 6 year old's journal for school written whilst staying here in beautiful San Fransisco. We have had a lovely time in SF. We stayed 4 days and 5 nights in this apartment with our 2 young children aged 6 and 4. We found the apartment to have everything we needed and more. It was extremely clean, comfortable, child- friendly, and well located for all the things we wanted to do and see here. It was also well located to public transport ( bus and trolley bus), and easy to get into downtown. The kitchen is very well equipped, and we had everything we needed to cook big meals most nights. The owners were very welcoming and gave us very useful tips on things to do and see. We would definitely stay here if we came to SF again, and would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay, particularly for families.
Everything you need and more
We are a family of three and arrived at the apartment on the 27th of august for our 8 night holiday in San Francisco. I chose this apartment after reading the excellent reviews and was also encouraged by the excellent communication fromTaya. The apartment had everything we needed and more, the kitchen was very well equipped including cooking spices, organic sugar and coffee. As we were staying over 7 nights Taya provided two muni passes which made it easy to get around, the bus stop for downtown is a 2 minute walk away and the buses are very frequent. Taya has obviously put a lot of thought into what you need but it was the extra attention to detail that made the difference such as the laptop and printer, this was excellent for checking in online for our flight home. Our security deposit had been refunded very quickly and was in my account within a day of getting home. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to San Francisco.
Great stay in well-located apartment
Positives: This nice apartment was sufficiently roomy and well laid out for a family stay. Kitchen was fully equipped (see below for a couple of suggestions), beds were comfortable, the living area and bathroom were just fine. Wifi was good, TV channels sufficient, DVD players in good working order. We used almost all of the fruit and the wine. Not a lot of noise from neighbors above and below (you can hear them walking around, but no one stayed up late partying or anything). Tons of restaurants--good ones--nearby, coffee shop half a block away with good bagels. Peter gave us a good orientation, and our deposit was refunded very quickly after we departed. Everything was quite clean when we arrived, and we are absolutely planning on booking again for our next SF trip.
Negatives: Parking was interesting, particularly when other tenants didn't follow the clear, posted instructions about orienting their vehicles, etc. If you book here, please follow these instructions and be sure to flip in your sideview mirrors. There is a fire department across the street, and they do make a ton of noise in the fairly early morning, particularly testing their chain saws (!) every morning. We solved this issue with a fan that created sufficient white noise and left the fan in the unit for future tenants. It's a city; this is how things are, so you make accommodations. If you are disabled, you would need to book a first-floor apartment as there did not appear to be disabled access for the upper floors.
Minor things to be addressed: A new corkscrew would be good; the one in the unit was extremely difficult to use. The dispensers in the shower needed a refill. That's really all. :)
Every detail impresses.
The photos, owner's description and other reviews on this site accurately describe the clean, comfortable and excellent condition of this apartment. If the deal were just that, the place would be a great place for a family vacation. But what makes this place truly impressive is that the staples of life (plenty of toilet paper and soaps, laundry and dish detergents, coffee, flour, sugar and an extensive collection of spices) are provided. We were also treated to a nice basket of fruits, a bottle of wine, and because we were staying a week, 2 complimentary Muni passports. We felt truly welcomed and looked after.
Everything you could need to stay comfortably in San Francisco
This appartment provides everything you could possibly want for a stay in San Frncisco either as a couple or family with young or older children. High standard of cleanliness, quality fittings, parking, near to public transport and the Presidio. All kinds of restaurants around the corner. Muni tickets for 2 included. Owner very helpful. Would definitely recommend to friends and use again.
Our stay in Taya's place in San Francisco was great !!! Just as described and better. Very clean and organized. Equipped with everything we needed and more. We had a car so the location was convenient, everything we needed was close by. The parking spot is a plus in San Francisco... Although this garage for four cars was a little tight but still better than parking 5 blocks away!
A piece of advise: make sure you understand how to open the shower before Taya leaves the place!!! We had a blast laughing at each other the first night when we tried taking a shower. We read the instructions and taya explained it very well... But we still had a hard time ( but fun) trying to take a shower. That's when I understood other review's comments.
Have fun in San Francisco and be confident renting with Taya!!! Oh and you deposit is given back very soon too.
Thanks Taya from

Great apartment, great Location, wonderful owners
We stayed for 2 weeks in this Lovely apartment with our 1 year old. the apartment was clean, spacious, and had all the necessary amenities in the kitchen. the owners were also kind enough to provide a crib and a high chair for our daughter. they had a lovely fruit basket, organic coffee and Tea, numerous dvd's and books, and an amazing patio with a barbecue and all necessary amenities. it was also walking distance to GG park, and there is a lovely coffee shop right around the corner, and organic store 1 block away. we had such a wonderful stay, we would definitely stay there again when we visit SF.
Very good location. quiet clean generaly excellent
Wonderful apartment. we had the best of the lot with the deck to barbeque outside. we were met by the owner who was very friendly and helpfulk. gave us tips for our stay in SF. Highly recommend.
Family from Finland
Great location, friendly service
Our family of 5 (parents and three children) stayed at this apartment for one week. Apartment was as described in the pictures. There were organic fruits and a bottle of wine waiting for us.
Location is great and the surrounding neighborhood is peaceful. Across the apartment is a fire station, but we rarely heard noise from there (one fire station alarm during the time we were there). This apartment has windows towards the back yard so it's more quiet.
We recommend using the bus transportation if you want to see downtown San Francisco. Bus route 38 takes you to Market street priced 2€ adults and 0.75€ for children under 17.
Apartment has garage but don't rent the largest vehicle if you are afraid of parking the car in tight space. Garage has room for 4 vehicles but the last parking space requires careful maneuvering.
Apartment was clean and well taken care of. Beds were a bit hard but ok to sleep. Dish washing machine was loud so you better schedule the washing before bed time if you need absolute quietness while sleeping.
There were 2 wifi routers to choose from and the network worked well most of the time.
We also used the washing machines and dryer downstairs. They operate with quarters.
There are 3 TV sets in the apartment. Over 100 channels to choose from. Also Dvd's and VHS if you needed them. The main living room couch was very comfortable to sit.
There are two Safeway grocery stores near by. We recommend using the Safeway closest to the SF downtown. Geary street also has cafe's and other stores near by.
We were in town for a brewery tour of the SF Bay.
The apartment is very nicely maintained. Everything was in working order and clean. Everything we needed and wanted was easily available.
The parking garage is crucial, since street parking is challenging.
Being in the city is awesome, and Taya's place makes a great mellow homebase for your vacation.
Great family spot.
We used to live in San Francisco so we knew this neighborhood. If you are planning a trip to the Bay area that is beach and Golden Gate Park focused, then this is a great spot. You can easily take the bus downtown or to Japan Town, go out to Lands End or pop over to Marin headlands from here. Ocean Beach and China beach are easy to explore as well. The place is clean, the beds comfortable and having the deck makes for a great place to eat and relax on a beautiful day. One of our favorite Thai restaurants, Kahn Toke is near by as well as good dim sum at Ton Kiang. Enjoy!

Great location - very comfortable suite.
The attention to detail to ensure that guests are comfortable is second to none. We really appreciated all the extras: bus passes, paper towels, foil and plastic wrap, i-phone docks, d/w soap, laundry detergent, fresh fruit,chocolates and wine - and more. We were also grateful for early check in and for all of the information generously shared by Peter regarding the neighbourhood and surrounding area.
This unit is very comfortable and thoughtfully laid out with a lot
of small details which most other places do not offer.
The locations is great with many different restaurants in walking distance as well as Golden Gate Park and Baker Beach.
We had a great time and will be back.

Felt like home away from home
We have nothing but good things to say about this apartment. We felt right at home. All the amenities were great because we only had to buy actual food, no need for shopping for spices or coffee or salt... the beds are very comfortable and the deck is definitely a huge plus. The location is ideal also for public transportation staight to downtown, but being away from the downtown hassle. All in all a great experience and would definitely go back to this apartment and no other if we go back to SF.

Thankyou for our best stay while we were in the USa
Wow! What can I say this place was a home away from home. I want to thankyou both so much for the care, consideration & most of all the love that goes into this place. It truly was our best stay on our 16 night USa trip. You have everything you need in this apartment & there has been so much thought put into everything to accomodate guests & there needs. This was perfect for our family of five & the location was fantastic with restaurants, deli's & coffee shops within quick walking distance. The firestation across the road was not an issue & added to the charm of our stay. The area was upmarket & safe & I certainly was glad that we stayed there as opposed to the hustle & bustle of the wharf, which also is about a 15 minute drive. Taya & her husband were the nicest people to deal with, I could of adopted them as family that is how welcome they made us feel. I also wanted to mention a special thankyou to them. My son was extremely sick when we arrived at the apartment & both Taya & her husband showed concern & asked about his recovery during our stay even allowing us to extend our stay by one night. This was the best place for him to recover & I want to thank you for your care. We absolutely fell in love with san Francisco & Taya's apartment. I could live there I loved it sooo much. I am so glad I found this treasure & will certainly be recommending it!
Sterling Heights, Michigan
Clean, comfortable and convenient!
Great vacation in San Francisco. Stayed 1 week in this very nice apartment. The fresh fruit, wine and use of laptop computer were very appreciated. Would stay again if in San Francisco.
JJ & dre
Wonderful, Comfortable, Clean, Convenient
My husband and I have a 41/2 & 6yr old, and were in town to visit friends
and site-see in San Fran. This condo was wonderful -
great space, had modern conveniences, easy to
get to and had an indoor parking space, and there
there are several restaurants and produce markets
within walking distance. We would certainly rent here
Clean, bright, comfortable, with all of the amenities you could
The Katz's could not have been more helpful and hospitable. The apartment was impeccably cleaned, bright, spacious, and very nicely decorated. The deck space was awesome! Had a grill, a 3-seater porch swing, a picnic table, and another bistro set with room still to spare! The Katz's thought of everything you could need from the loads of clean towels and waschloths, 3 flat screen tv's, explicit directions to every tv and dvd player, to the laptop with wifi and printer provided. The beds were super comfy and we had ample sleeping space for our two teen-agers and two younger kids. Having a parking space was a huge plus as we quickly realized...it seems virtually impossible to find street parking in San Francisco! Finally, the location was ideal for us...minutes to Ocean Beach, blocks to Golden Gate Park, and about 10-15 minutes by car or 20-25 by bus to Union Square or the Wharf. Great coffee shop, restaurants, and markets right down the street. Couldn't have been more pleased with our choice!
Perfect SF apartment - relaxing and close to town - many thanks
We are a family of six - and we really had a great vacation in SF - the apartment was perfect - very clean - as advertised - with parking . Bus stop outside the door ran us straight into town - we were most welcomed and given loads of tips - many thanks for making out trip a great trip - D
Cameron park, CA
Great location and amenities with free parking.
Taya is a great hostess who provided a basket of fresh fruit upon arrival. She also accommodated a last minute change of dates. Having a garage to park your car on site is unheard of in San Francisco. This saves money and adds convenience. She goes the extra mile and even provides a laptop and printer. This was our second stay and won't be our last.
Great stay for the family
A well furnished comfortable place for the family. Quiet neighbourhood and easy access to public transportation. Easy check-in and check- out. It was very thoughtful n helpful of Victoria to drive us around the neighbourhood enabling us to get our dinner at the many nearby restaurants.
Everything was great
Everything was great. The only problem was the toilet paper holder was loose and the roll kept falling off.
Great San Franciso Rental
We rented this unit for a girls weekend in San Francisco. Check in was very easy and we were given very detailed instructions by Peter on the apartment. This apartment is exactly as it's represented. It was extremely clean and had everything we could possible need. The beds were very comfortable and there were televisions in every room. The location is convenient to Geary and public transportation. The neighborhood was very quiet and we felt completely safe. We especially liked having an indoor parking space, it was pouring rain when we arrived and it was very nice not to have to drag all of our luggage into the apartment in the rain. Check out was super simple and our deposit was refunded immediately. I will definitely rent from Taya again, this was a first rate experience.
Great place with great owners!
Our stay at Taya's and Peter's wonderful condo has raised the bar to other places we have stayed in the past!
From the initial phone conversation with Taya to the meet and greet by Peter at the condo to give us a quick tour which was a great touch.
Location was perfect.Close to a Muni stop with only a short trip to Down-town.We were with our 2 young sons and found many parks and activities to do close to the area.
We will definitely be coming back in the near future.
Many thanks again!
Family of Five
great stay, no fuss, no issues
We stayed here for 2 days in November and found the place exactly as advertised.
Clean and comfortable and close to many restaurants.
Check in and out was easy.
Parking could be tight, but manageable.
Would be happy to stay here again.
Thanks Taya and family.
What a fabulous apartment
My husband 2 kids and my mom traveled to San Francisco for an extended family event in the neightborhood. This apartment was fantastic. It was beautiful, very clean and well stocked and extremely convenient. Most of the other family members who came from out of twon stayed in a hotel in the financial district which was inconvenient and was expensive to travel around. Taya's apartment turned into the place where the whole family came to relax and be together, it was really comfortable. Not to mention the free parking and the laundry facilities. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend to everyone I know. Thanks Katz family!!!
A very comfortable and clean place to return to, parking a plus!
This was my wife's and mine first trip to San Francisco as well as our first vacation rental. After doing some researching online as well as talking with a good friend of ours who has lived in San Francisco we decided on Taya's vacation rental. We were not disappointed. We were delayed by the traffic on our way from Monterey, but Taya was very kind and along with Peter waited for our evening arrival and if we had any questions we were more than welcome to call her or her sister. Peter was kind enough to help me park in the garage ( If you rent a vehicle if possible get a compact--something I learned years ago) and I as found out parking is at a premium in San Francisco. As other reviewers have said the apartment is very comfortable with many nice organic teas available as well as fresh fruit and a bottle of wine. The kitchen as everything you need if like to cook as well as a gas grill on the great patio. The laptop and printer are a big plus as well. There are plenty of restaurants and stores close by (We enjoy Trader Joes a little over two miles away) Although we spent most of the daytime out and about it was nice to return to this most relaxing and comfortable apartment with many amenities.
Everything We Expected
The apartment was as attractive as the photos and exceptionally clean. The kitchen was well stocked and we were pleased by the fresh fruit and bottle of wine. We appreciated the coffee and sugars provided and a good assortment of spices. The place was quiet and we felt very safe there. Our only suggestion was that it would be great to have a recycle can available in the kitchen. Enjoyed our stay, thanks very much.
Exceptionally well presented apartment with everything
The apartment had everything you could possibly need to keep everyone in the family happy. Everything was in great condition, very clean with plenty of storage space and a quiet location. Deli and bus are very close. Peter gave us a great welcome and tour. We have stayed in many apartments and this is the best presented apartment we have been in.
relaxing, well equipped, very clean, and quiet.
We traveled with our two adult children and found this apartment comfortable for all of us. The deck space is warm and sunny in the morning, good for an afternoon siesta and a great BBQ space in the evening. The set up and presentation of the apartment made it very easy to walk in and immediately feel at home. We could have our own space in the evening or relax together. There was plenty of info on the area, maps, menus and then the computer/printer and wi fi access made planning our days easy. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, good cookware, appliances and a supply of the basics. We've stayed in vacation rentals in the past and this one is by far the best in many ways. We didn't have children with us but this apartment was well equipped to accommodate a family.
convenient and most pleasent
It seemed as though you and your sister did everything possible to make this a pleasant stay.
Comfy condo, parking place
Husband, dad and I shared this little two-bedroom place over a weekend. Loved the quiet neighborhood, though a bit removed from our business on nob hill. The kitchen was very well furnished, important to us, and coffee taya provided was excellent. Sounds of gentle foghorns in the night! A word of caution, unless you have luxe down pillows at home and love them, bring your own pillow for a good nights sleep. Also important to check the electronics, including your ability to get Internet, while Taya is there... You might find you can't operate tv or laptop. Altogether a sweet little place.
Wonderful place to stay
Great place with friendly and helpful owners. Immaculate, wonderful amenities.
Nice location - close enough to everything with San Francisco's easy to use public transportation. ad a parking spot which was nice as parking can be difficult.
Relaxing spot to end the day of sightseeing.
We had a great time in San Francisco. It was our second visit with the kids. Last time we stayed in a hotel in the Union Square area. This time it was so nice to be able to come back to a condo with two bedrooms and a fantastic Weber grill on the deck to make dinner! The organic coffee and fruit etc was a nice personal touch by Taya. Location is great if you plan on going to Golden Gate park, zoo, downtown etc...we headed to Half Moon Bay to get our favorite Lobster Roll at Sam's Chowderhouse on July 4th..location made it a shorter journey! I would recommend this condo as a great location away from the noise at thr end of the day..but also easy access to bus routes and park.
One great place!
Ok, at first glance, driving up the street, I was not that impressed, especially when I saw the fire Station right across the street. It reminded me of my college days years ago (I lived on anza and 25th, about a block away). But, walking up the stairs, into the flat, I was immediately impressed! Everything is renovated, and decorated to perfection! And the BBQ on the patio was fantastic! We cooked steaks one night for the 6 of us, and everything was done to perfection! Also, Taya surprised us with a full bowl of organic fruit, and a great bottle of Merlot.
Well done Taya! Will definitely return.
Excellent facility at a convenient location
We spent a week in san Francisco with a friend and her children, and the apartment is well equiped with everything new, very clean. The neighboorhood is far from downtown, but there are buses that easily take you there. The apartment is close to Golden Gate which is also a main attraction and a must. Taya and her family were very kind and provided with all we needed for a nice stay in San francisco!!!
Excellent vacation rental
This is our third stay in one of Taya's apartments. Every one of them was wonderful. This one is particularly special because it has a huge deck with a barbecue, table and benches, comfortable wicker chairs, and, best of all, an old fashioned upholstered porch swing. The deck gets full sun in the morning (good for my husband), and shade in the afternoon (good for me).
The living room/dining area is comfortable and attractive. The bedrooms have great mattresses. There are large screen TVs in each room with cable and DVD players. Taya also provides a crib and highchair for little ones. There is Wifi, a laptop computer, and a printer. I was able to keep up with e-mail, facebook, and my favorite blogs. Best of all, I was able to print my boarding passes before leaving for home.
The kitchen is fully equipped. Besides the usual appliances, there is a coffee maker with built-in grinder, a microwave oven, and a toaster. There is a supply of organic coffee beans, olive oil, herbs and spices, tea, and sugar.
When we arrived in the apartment we found a huge basket of organic fruit and a complimentary bottle of wine. Besides this, there are books for children of all ages, guide books, and a binder with instructions for using everything in the apartment. The bathroom has loads of towels, body wash, and shampoo. We found a first aid kit in the bathroom vanity, packets with toothbrushes and toothpaste, packets of slippers. Taya misses nothing.
Now for the best thing of all. Before we found Taya we stayed in an apartment without parking. We literally rode around for hours at night looking for parking only to have to get up early in the morning to move our car. This apartment has a garage parking space.
Taya is a pleasure to work with. She has always responded promptly to my calls. We're coming back again this summer to what we have come to feel is our home away from home.
We truly enjoyed the property, the owners thought of everything, we didn't miss home...very pleasant staying...thank you very much...
Wonderful Place to Stay in San Francisco
Our family had a wonderful stay in the condo last weekend. The kitchen had what we needed and more. The linens we plentiful and spotless. The furniture was comfortable (even the sofa sleeper.) It was luxurious to have 3 flat screen t.v.s! The location was good as the neighborhood was quiet, clean, and had easy access to main streets. Lots of restaurants nearby. Owner was very accommodating and helpful. Onsite parking is a bonus but I would not recommend large vehicles as parking is super tight in garage.

The Perfect Home away
We have family that lives in the Richmond District, so when we stumbled across this property, we were intrigued.
Taya and her husband were very accommodating with our short notice booking and didn't skimp on hospitality. We had welcome gifts including a large assortment of organic fruits and a nice bottle of wine. It was great to have wine to unwind the evening of our arrival and also nice to have a morning snack on our short walk to the coffee house up the street - all without going shopping!
We stayed in Unit #2 which was newly renovated. The deck with a picnic area and a BBQ grill was a very nice touch. The bedrooms are very spacious and the second bedroom had one twin bed and two adorable bunk beds. The unit had everything you needed for cooking and they even supplied us with coffee, sugar and spices.
The location is great! Right off 26th & Geary. Geary is a major throughway, so there are always buses and taxis ready to take you where you want to go. It's across the street from a fire station, but we never heard them the whole time we stayed there. It seems to be a fairly quiet area.
There are lots of nice restaurants within walking distance and the infamous Trad'r Sam's is right down the street which is a great place to grab a drink with friends.
I would rent again without hesitation! In fact, I am! I'll be returning next month for another stay. Thanks again!
