Steve was a great host. We appreciate his clear and prompt response to all of our requests.

We had good time at Steve's place. The location is good, neighbourhood felt nice and safe. We've been travelling by car, it was approximately 30 min drive to San Francisco (depending on traffic of course). In San Rafael you can find good places to eat, stores and gas station. The place it self is comfortable and nice, all traveller need to have rest after hard day. Steve has 2 dogs that are super cute and friendly, we loved them. The only thing - you should consider family is living upstairs so you can hear them walking in the morning. For us that was not a problem we woke up early.

Steve and his wife were excellent hosts! They made sure that we had everythimg we needed and when they found out we were attending a Giants game, they offered helpful tips for getting there. The place itself was very clean and cozy. I would definitely stay again in the future.

Some good and some bad things. The one room stuido is as seen on the pictures. Everything was clean except some of kitchen utensils but we washed it up so there was no problem at all. Really noisy in the early morning, as you live downstairs and hear pretty much every step of the kids and the dogs running around. The are dogs on the property and some of their poop on the way to the studio, so we did not use our own outside area. It felt a bit like a youth hostel as checkout time was 10am, we had to strip the linen off the bed, take out all the rubbish and so on. In addition the communication was not good at all, except the Check in. We asked him if we could do some of our laundry(as written in his discription) and he didnt respond at all. Not even after we had left. That was somehow disappointing! Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay as the location of the stuido is really good! Quiet neighborhood and just 20 minutes from San Francisco!

Steve (the host) told us he is selling his property and so some people will take a look of the room which we were staying in. Because of this reason, he promised to refund us for flexibility. It brought so much inconveniences to us. We got to pack most of our belongings everyday. One day, we planned to stay in the room and have lunch, but the agent knocked the door and asked us to leave because people are coming to visit the house. We thought we will receive some credit back so we try to cooperate with them and leave the room earlier. In another day, we came back to the room at night and found some of our belongings were moved into the store room messily. We felt so uncomfortable about this because we did not expect our personal belongings would be touched or moved. So after we left, we text Steve couple times to discuss about the credit back issue but he never replied our text and never answered our call. I finally got his message from the Airbnb platform. In the message, he said there will be no refund because he claimed that he has hired professional cleaning company to clean up the room because we left the room messy. In fact, we did tidy up and clean up everything before we left. We feel like we are being framed. The place is cozy and clean, but I will never recommend to anyone as long as the host is irresponsible, dishonest and untrustworthy.
