Our stay at 626 Ashbury was a great experience. Wonderful archetecture and space. The bedrooms were large and spacious and the sitting room had a comfy couch and cozy atmosphere with the fireplace. We found the location good for getting around the city and within walking distance to Golden Gate Park. Transportation to tourist area took about 20 mins on the MUNI. Everything you need is supplied with lots of extra linens.

This was a beautiful flat. We were very comfortable. Having this homey environment took much of the strain out of the vacation. The lanlord's recommendations were very helpful.

Nos hemos alojado recientemente en este maravilloso departamento. La experiencia ha sido fantÃ¡stica, fue la primera vez que alquilamos por este sistema y no hemos sido defraudados. El departamento es lindo, cÃ³modo, de estilo, decorado con buen gusto, el equipamiento completo, la cocina impecable, las camas, las toallas, las sÃ¡banas de primerÃsima calidad. Fue como estar en casa. AdemÃ¡s David y Karen son encantadores y estuvieron dispuestos a ayudarnos en todo. El departamento tambien cuenta con mapas, guias, libros y fotografÃas de mucha utilidad para el viaje. Muchas gracias a David y Karen por hacer que nuestra visita a San francisco haya resultado maravillosa. Flia.Dal Lago (Ricardo, Franco, Marco y Liliana)

This flat is lovely. It was nice to have some room to spread out instead of being cramped in a hotel room. It was alittle distance from alot of the touristy attractions but once we got the hang of the bus system it was fine. The fruit at the local market was unbelieveable and worth the stay there in and of itself. Mr Crommie was very helpful- in fact when he felt he had given us the wrong amount of time to reach Fishermans Wharf where we had a tour planned, he personally drove us there and along the way gave us a mini tour. We had fun when he drove us down Lombard st- the crookest street in the world.

David and Karen, We want to thank you so very much for the wonderful time in San Francisco. When we found your ad online we thought we would take "a bit of a risk" not having arranged a vacation this way before. This was not a risk. The accommodations you provided were better than we could have imagined. The location, the lodging, your style as hosts, have all been perfect. We especially want to thank you for those special touches that may go unnoticed.....fresh flowers, bottle of wine, fresh fruit, thorough guest instructions, guidebooks, magazines.....they all added to the experience. We would highly recommend your flat to those looking for a great place to stay in San Francisco. Tom and Sheri

The pleasure was all ours! Such a beautiful unit and a great location. It was wonderful to be able to return to our beautiful apartment with our son and his girlfriend to discuss his sustainability event at Golden Gate Park and other "weighty" issues over wine and cheese. I can see why you are booked so consistently. It made our visit to The Haight fantastic.
I loved the apartment and have recommended it to several friends. Great location, quiet, roomy, well-appointed, and full of character. We used public transit to get all around the city, from the financial district to the Palace of the Legion of Honor. David and Karen are gracious hosts. Thank you!

We stayed here in Nov 2007 with our 8 month old and it loved it! Wonderful, warm, welcoming apartment with many nice touches. We especially loved the fireplace and the many fluffy towels provided. The owners are very hospitable and everything is as it states in the listing. We even rented the second bedroom for a few night for Grandma and she was very happy as well!

This place is a "find". We stayed for a week in great comfort...they think of everything plus lots of unexpected touches. We think you'll love it, and by the way the owners are a very pleasant couple,

We stayed 9 days at 626 Ashbury Street. We really apppreciated the nice welcoming of the owners and this comfortable, charm, very clean and quiet place; We have been pleased to find such a nice place after a long flight. We also enjoyed the Internet access which gave us the opportunity to stay in contact with our friends and family in France, to find more informations about SF and to book some activities (moreover there're some very interesting books in the living room). Thanks to David and Karen

The past month of August IÂ´ve been with my family 10 days in that wonderful city of San Francisco. Our stay has been a true delight, of a very important way has influenced to have been lodged at this beautiful house. The house is very comfortable, perfectly equipped and decorated with an exquisite taste. Only to throw the amiability demonstrated by its owners, Karen and David. Their efforts make of the stay an authentic pleasure. Their welcome and of course the help that they always give to you, are fantastic, all these details make of the stay a wonder. It would fantastic return soon and IÂ´m pretty sure we would repeat this perfect experience. Juan Albert Madrid - Spain

We traveled to San Francisco with our 20-year-old daughter and choose 626 Asbury for its prime location in the heart of Haight Asbury. While the area was alive with activity, easy access to restaurants, shopping and public transportation, the flat offered a refuge from it all. It was spacious, immaculate and surprisingly quiet, given its location. David and Karen were attentive to our needs (although given the abundance of information they shared at the beginning of our stay we had little need to bother them much), and even welcomed us with a bottle of great zinfandel and fresh fruit...a nice touch! If traveling with another couple or with children, the location of the two bedrooms offers all great privacy as they are located at opposite ends of a very long hallway. The linens and bedding were first class, contributing to a great night's sleep. We highly recommend this accommodation and thank David and Karen for sharing their beautiful property with the rest of us! Susan and Kevin Oldrid Somerset, MA
