Good location, Eco friendly apartment.
Very clean, it is a eco friendly apartment. This is a 3 storey house and the apartment has been created at the rear of the internal garage. It is a good conversion and spacious. There is a double bed and a sofa bed in the lounge. A large Patio shared with owner to the rear of property. There is no parking space provided therefore you have to try and park on the streets near to the property which wasn't too much of a problem. It is about 20 mins away via car from Alcatraz etc. If no car there are bus stops nearby. There are lots of Chinese/Thai takeaways nearby and the beach is also only a ten min drive. Upon arriving at the property we met Len who lives above the apartment, he advised us that he had provided slippers for us to wear as no shoe policy in the property which was fine, however the slippers were used slippers so ended up not wearing them. The lounge area could do with a proper settee in as the only place to relax and watch TV after a hard days walking around San Francisco was on our daughters sofa bed but we couldn't do that for long as she wanted to go to sleep so we would then have nowhere to sit and relax. The room is big enough to accommodate another sofa or at least some bean bags on the floor would be handy. Due to it being eco friendly the lights are all on timers and unfortunately when u shower u end up showering in the dark if you stay in the bathroom too long. The only real downside about our stay was some months before I booked this rental for 4 nights and had paid in full I wanted to reduced it to 3 nights, I contacted Len via email months in advance and did not hear anything. I then contacted him a few weeks before departure and asked if he had received my emails which he had I advised again we only wanted 3 nights and would want the 4th night refunded. Len advised I needed to contact home away to do this which I did, they advised me it was Len that needed to sort it out. Due to it by this time being 7 days before our arrival that it was changed to 3 nights Len decided to only pay us less than half what we had paid stating we had changed the dates within the last 7 days!! Despite me having emails proving otherwise. We didn't want to say anything to Len before our arrival in case we were left stranded with no accommodation as we were already in l.a.. So unfortunately it has to be mentioned now. Plenty of notice was given to Len that we only now required 3 nights and it should of been a 100% refund not less than 50%!
