We enjoyed our stay at the art-filled apartment. The neighborhood was quiet and close to grocery stores and a gym. The apartment was beautiful. I loved all the art. If you enjoy unique surroundings, this is the perfect place.
“Amazing apartment and great hosts”
we did not expect that it is possible to stay in such interesting place. it is like a museum of modern art and you live in the middle of it! thank you very much for hosts!
“Amazing neighborhood in SF”
Our accommodations exceeded our expectations! We arrived to find the typical "SF residence on a hill'. Parking was easy, and the comfortable light (and art) filled home with the neighborhood atmosphere was perfect. We really enjoyed the very private outdoor patio with it's plants, trees and views of the city. There are so many wonderful dining places just walking distance from the home. When you visit one don't be surprised to find that many of customers are regulars and know one another. The neighborhood is beautiful, the residents friendly, and Gae was very easy to work with. We definitely want to come back again!
“Gallery-like art collection”
Amazing art collection. Good location. Really nice couple - very willing to make suggestions for restaurants, etc. Gae & Mel were helpful in so many respects. We felt like we were visiting friends.
“Quirky art Filled Space in Portrero Hill”
My boyfriend and I stayed in Gae's guest room for two nights. She is a gracious hostess and was the perfect combination of being forthcoming and inviting, while granting us our space. The area you rent is the bottom level of her town home, which she shares with her husband and dog, Puzzle, who is well-behaved and stays upstairs. The entrance is shared, but we never ran into them. There is an office area, which doubles as a kitchenette with a mini fridge and hot plate, but I only made tea once. There is a private bathroom with a shower that has good water pressure. The pros: You awake in an art filled room. Gae is the kooky jewish auntie you never had. Easy parking. The price is right, especially for S.F. I liked Portrero Hill, but we did have a car. Whole Foods is right there, convenient for wine/water/snack runs. Wifi. access to a lovely patio with view. The cons: You feel like you're staying with relatives- not a true sense of privacy. The bed is a pull out couch, not a real bed. We never cooked because it really is not comfortable for that. We did not spend much time in Portrero Hill- more interested in the restaurants and street life of Hayes Valley, Lower Haight, Panhandle, the Mission etc.. I gave it 4 stars because I am an art lover and I prefer an interesting space over a generic one that might be more comfortable. Gae is a very dynamic and an all around interesting character- worth meeting. She invited us upstairs to view her other art and sip a glass of white wine from Mendoza, Argentina. She has a lot of life stories and is a social gazelle. I would recommend her place if you are staying a couple of nights in S.F ( that is her minimum) and will be out most of the time and don't mind a pull out couch sleeping situation.
Response from the owner This is the only review that mentions an uncomfortable bed, and it was never mentioned by the guest.We have had people stay for over three months and they have been able to use the kitchen facilities and eat quite well We also extend our larger kitchen and laundry facilities to guests. Please read the other comments for a truer picture of what you can expect. We can also put you in touch with guests if any questions exist. Gae and Mel Shulman. This is the comment sent to us directly in an email by this guest, which includes a request to stay in our Sonoma home which maybe of interest to potential guests. ." Sean slept alright, but I am more sensitive (hence my question: is it comfortable?) and I had trouble. We loved the place in every respect otherwise. Sean & I would be delighted to visit Sonoma and stay at another Shulman home. "
“Amazing stay, no complaints”
We arrived with minimal fuss to check in - great. We were shown around the fabulously quirky art filled apartment and our eyes were out on stocks. The apartment is situated in the Potrero Hill district which may not necessarily be on the tourist trail but that suited us fine. It is only a short walk (30 minutes) to the centre of town. The area has several restaurants, a great local bar called Blooms, coffee shop, book shop and curiosity shop of sorts. There's a supermarket nearby and a culinary school which you can dine at. Gae can tell you about this as she offered to call the chef for us to book us in. It's also near the Mission district which has plenty of bars and restaurants. Gae and Melvin were very friendly and helpful. They asked if we'd like to spend a night in their wine country home and let us have the run of their living/cooking areas when they were in the country, not that our room and food area weren't sufficient as we were mostly padding the streets of SF. We also had direct access to their garden from our living area where there is a view of the Bay Bridge. All in we had no complaints and would gladly go back and recommend to our friends. Much better than staying in a hotel!
“Art lovers delight!”
This was a great find in SF... not only more affordable than a hotel, but with way more charisma and comfort, too! If you like modern art, you'll love looking through the house's collection - you even get a set of amazing prints to glance through right in the bedroom you stay in! Gae and Mel are gracious hosts - available for answering questions and an occasional glass of wine or coffee, but never intruding on your space and privacy. I totally recommend staying here if you are in San Francisco for more than a day or two.
“Unique Surrounding; Terrific Location”
Gae and Mel are charming and gracious hosts, whose knowledge of both SF proper and the surrounding environs is truly impressive. They provided great culinary, cultural and practical suggestions and recommendations. The studio boasts unique furnishings in a funky and excellently-situated neighborhood!
We enjoyed our stay at Gae's house. For the art lover it is unforgettable experience. Gae was very welcoming and helpful. The kitchen was basic but manageable. My only worry was getting out of bed during the night not to get entangle in a net installation hanging next to my side of bed. The location is very good, quiet, a good Whole Food store nearby with a cafe. Bus stops and easy parking.
“Why Stay At A Hotel When You Can Stay In Places Like This”
found this apartment via Flipkey. Just liked the eclectic arty look. And that is exactly what the Shulman's apartment turned out to be-and more. If you are wanting a room with a view, 5 star accomodation,porters,a restuarant and CBD then this is NOT the place for you. If on the other hand you are wanting a wonderful ecletic artfilled apartment, big bedroom, study area, access to garden,in a home atmosphere with in (long ) walking distance of CBD,great value, with amazingly worldly and firendly hosts then this is the place for you. I cannot speak highly enough of this apartment and the Shulmans. I would not stay anywhere else in San Francisco if I am on my own.
