    My family of 6, including 4 adult children, stayed at Mission Manor over Christmas. I wish I could say we had a good experience, but unfortunately, the owner and her assistant made things quite difficult for us, despite the fact that we paid their highest price for a 5-night holiday minimum. A month later, we still have not been refunded our deposit of $750. First, this is a typical old SF flat, meaning there's a very long hallway with bedrooms on either end and a kitchen in the middle. I was surprised about people saying that 11 fit comfortably. I think 6 is a stretch: we couldn't all sit in the living room unless a chair was brought over from another room, it was that small. The pictures make it look better than in real life. Furniture was mostly IKEA. The fireplaces are for show only; none actually function as fireplaces. There were missing knobs and hooks, and a light in the kitchen was not functioning, making it dim all the time. We were tired upon arrival and the manager, who seemed to be high or something, took a long time issuing tedious instructions on ordinary things like the thermostat (push the up-button to turn up the heat. Really?) Then she returned later to admonish us against wearing shoes in the house! We asked if the downstairs renters had complained, but no, she just didn't want us walking in our shoes, presumably to lessen wear on the wood floor. A hallway rug would have solved that problem, but you'll have to wear these awful hospital-issue socks the entire time you're in the house. Check-out time is 11:00am, but the day we were leaving, the cleaners came half hour early with a small child who was left unsupervised to roam the rooms. The cleaners shooed us out of the bedroom so she could vacuum! Sorry, but if you need to be in such a rush to get the flat ready for the next renters, then adjust your checkin/checkout times accordingly. It was unprofessional. The kicker to the story is, a week later the owner accused us of breaking a ceramic elephant, which we had not. We had moved the elephant off the fake fireplace mantel so that we wouldn't bump it! Whether the cleaners broke the tail off the elephant in their haste , or their unsupervised child did, I can't say for sure. But the owner charged us $110 for a made-in-China elephant that I could buy at TJ Maxx for $14.99. She refused to believe us, and then refused to respond to emails. My husband thinks this may actually her little scam to extract more $ from renters. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.
