BEST Place I've Stayed—SF or Elsewhere!
Four vases of flowers. Our names welcoming us on the whiteboard. A note by the door. A basket of insanely delicious treats—chocolate, crumpets, local jam, artichoke pesto, macaroons. And, yes, even toilet paper tied like a rose. Rachel's hospitality is incredible. That alone makes the SF Vacation Hut the BEST place I've ever stayed. From the moment we booked, Rachel became our unofficial travel planner for San Francisco. Restaurants, grocery stores, evening entertainment, local treasures, hiking spots—she sent us plenty of options, all with our schedule and interests in mind. She even created an "itinerary" for one day, complete with a Google map plotting each destination. My husband and I are both vegans, which can make meals on vacation ... challenging. Not so with Rachel: She sent detailed descriptions of the best vegan eats in town, including their proximity to the apartment. Chinatown? Breakfast diner? Donuts? Mexican? She has every craving covered. And, of course, everything in our gift basket was vegan. The apartment was gorgeous, roomy, clean, and designed very intentionally. Don't worry about luggage or kids—there's plenty of space. The bed is unbelievably comfortable. The kitchen has everything you'd need, from a coffee grinder and pots to rarer items like a juicer, garlic press, and pretty drink glasses. As another reviewer mentioned, Rachel also stocks the apartment with thoughtful touches like umbrellas, robes, a sewing kit, DVDs, tour books, and maps that have nearby restaurants and attractions marked. The laptop is wonderful too; it's already hooked up to wireless and a printer. We didn't even bring ours on the trip! Finally, if the hospitality and apartment aren't enough, the location is excellent. It's quiet, safe, and close to both public transportation and awesome shops. You definitely feel like you're staying in the *real* San Francisco there! If you're visiting the area soon, don't hesitate to book the SF Vacation Hut. Hands down, it was the best decision we made for our vacation!
