Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is the apartment noisy?
The apartment is at the end of the main street, Cortland Avenue, and we are in the city. City life happens. The apartment has double glazed windows and insulated walls to cut down on noise, and it does help. Noise tolerance is very personal and highly subjective to the individual’s comfort zone. Most of our guests do not have a problem with street noise, even babies and toddlers have slept soundly throughout the night! If you are a very light sleeper or highly sensitive to any noise, then this is not the right place for you.
2. Why do you charge an extra $80 cleaning fee?
The cleaning fee is a one-time charge to clean the apartment after you check out. It is a fair market rate by San Francisco standard. We take pride in delivering a clean, sanitized and comfortable apartment to every guest staying with us. We don’t scrimp on quality; you get what you pay for.
3. Why do I need to sign a rental agreement with you?
The rental agreement is a standard document that I require all my guests to acknowledge and sign, so that we have no cause for any misunderstanding. AirBnB only handles the fee transaction and is not responsible nor do they own my property. Different hosts have their own way of doing things to ensure a safe environment for themselves and their guests. I find it useful as a communication tool to make sure all is agreeable before the guests check in. This is also one way to gauge the sincerity of complete strangers coming into our home.
Please DO NOT BOOK the apartment until you have done the following:
• Read through the details of our listing description "Other Things to Note" to avoid any misunderstanding
• Fill in your profile page and tell us about yourself
• Communicate with us first to make sure the apartment is still available
Please check our calendar for available dates and correspond with us first BEFORE you use the the "Book It" feature. Our calendar is current but sometimes we might be in the midst of confirming dates with other inquiries.
We would also appreciate it if you can tell us a little more about yourself by completing your profile page.
Thanks for your cooperation!
