A wonderful apartment (a house, really) in a great, quiet neighborhood, within walking distance of terrific shopping and restaurants. Mary was a delight to deal with. While we were there, we even had access to her garage space, a real plus in a city where it's near impossible to park. Two bedrooms, each with a private bathroom ... a cozy living room ... a dining room. Really a sweet layout. With two daughters in S.F. we like to visit when we can, we will for sure see if Mary's place is available next time we come to town. Highly recommended.
my friend paula and i stayed with mary for 4 nights. we loved our visit. the location of her home is so ideal for what we wanted. she helped us with transportation, food, laundry, and just treated us like long lost family. marys place is the best possible. i would stay with her again in a heartbeat. her home is lovely, clean nicely decorated, and has everything you need. what more can you ask for
I booked a room for my mother and a friend as a birthday getaway; I am out of town traveling and I was glad to find a good deal on Air BnB. Mary responded quickly to my request, but when it came to actually making the booking, she cancelled it twice before finally processing the booking. This was very frustrating as the multiple transactions appeared on my bank card and still haven't cleared. She didn't tell me what was going on before cancelling both times, and that's never a good feeling when you have a deadline and it appears your accommodations are at the last minute unavailable.
However, my mother and her friend seemed to enjoy their stay, saying
"Mary's place was in a nice (email hidden)rking is sucky - but that's Frisco. She was pleasant and helpful in passing on sites and such to us."
Mary came to the rescue after another AirB&B reservation fell through. Not only did she wait late for me (and took me in a the last moment), she was (is) friendly, helpful, and great company.
The unit is decorated in very well taste, clean, airy, and comfortable all around. Everything works, there is a space for everything, and everything is in its place.
Actually, my best AirB&B experience in many ways (the house is full of books, incredibly well located) Parks, restaurants, the beach, and even a small movie theater are all within waling distance (if a bit distant from the city centre).
I strongly recommend Mary's place, specially if you are coming in with a family or some friends, so you can jointly enjoy the unit, Mary's neighborhood, and the the city.
The place is great. Near everything ! The unit has everything and is very clean. There's street parking too. Highly recommended for people who wants the amenities of a home, not a hotel room. Thank you so much Mary. We had a blast in san francisco.
I highly recommend this property! Not only is It well-appointed and tastefully decorated, it is charming, clean and spacious. Mary DeVries was very accommodating which made check-in/out convenient. Due to rain it was awesome to curl up and read in a comfy living room and we appreciated that we were able to host our small family gathering one evening. We traveled with our adult children so the two bedroom option was perfect. Located in quiet Outer Richmond neighborhood with ample street parking, the home is just above prestigious Sea Cliff; a must-do walk with views of the S.F Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and beautiful estates. Mary suggested nearby Angeline’s Café for coffee, French pastry and people watching, it became our morning ritual. We will definitely plan to book this property for future stays and recommend it without hesitation!
We stayed in a very nice room in Mary's beautiful and spotless apartment. The neighbourhood is a quick walk away from a great beach and the Legion of Honor is also in walking distance. Mary was a wonderful host with a great hospitality.
Mary was a lovely host; she came through when I was looking for a place for my parents at the last minute. Her place is beautiful, clean, and in a quiet location between Inner Richmond and Seacliff and my parents were very comfortable in their room.
Mary very kindly gave my parents a private bathroom and the rest of the house to use, which was great. We would definitely stay here again. I definitely recommend Mary as a host!
I went with my daughter and friends to visit colleges in the San Francisco area. The house is really beautiful and well cared for. From the minute you walk in you feel the artistic and fine taste that makes you feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our stay at this house, and I will consider going there any time I go to San Francisco!
I have known Mary for over 20 years and stayed at her place countless times. The neighbourhood is in a great location with easy access to all parts of the city and Mary is a wonderful host. Her apartment is very comfortable and she is very easy going, making her place a great choice any time I'm travelling to SF.
It is always a treat to travel out to SF and stay with Mary in her charming inner Richmond apartment. Her apartment is clean, comfortable, and in a terrific neighborhood. Nothing beats visiting SF with my wife and young daughter and staying in this charming neighborhood that is close to the Presidio, Goden Gate park, and a ton of great restaurants. A great spot for young families who are looking to travel to this beautiful city.
Mary's apartment is very comfortable, well-maintained and immaculate. It's in an upscale and safe neighborhood - close to the Presidio, the beach and Golden Gate bridge, and there are many restaurants and shops within a couple of blocks.
Mary has lived in San Francisco a long time, is a friendly and knowledgeable host, and very willing to help with advice or recommendations. I would not hesitate to recommend it.
Wonderful apartment, wonderful host. If being in a real SF residential neighborhood, close to the beach, the parks, and great, low cost, ethic restaurants is your dream, this is the place for you.
