Response from Brian:
Dear Daniel, Thank you very much for your lovely, informative and helpful Airbnb review. This was probably the best review we have received to date and we are hoping it will help us find more people like you to come and stay with us as artists are scholars in residence. Please do let us know if you are ever coming back to San Francisco whether or not you stay with us we would enjoy the chance to spend some more time together. Kindly, Brian and Florencia
