Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Welcome to my childhood hometown of San Francisco! This fully furnished corporate apartment will charm your visit with true 'San Francisco style' and fine world class flavors that can only be experienced through a true San Francisco residence. The Buena Vista/Corona Heights district offers original Circa 1870s Victorian architecture, lovely and easy back park hikes, quaint hidden staircase walks, panoramic park * city views, international cuisine and friendly Northern California hospitality. It gives me great pleasure to share such an enchanting neighborhood and city. Come see why so many of my prior tenants choose to return for a second and even third stay at this lovely, cozy, homey accommodation.

Why the Owner Chose Castro:
Because this property backs up to what is actually a small mountain park, the apartment enjoys constant peace and quiet while still remaining centrally located to the city's bussle. Many of San Francisco's most famous neighborhoods and world-wide attractions like Haight/Ashbury, The Castro District, Twin Peaks and Golden Gate Park are walking distance. This up-scale neighborhood will grant your stay local charm, nearby spectacular views and the feeling of living like a San Francisco local!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The geographical position of the this apartment is located on the perimeter of the Castro and Haight/Ashbury districts which is truly central to everywhere else in the city. Other close by districts are the Civic Center, Golden Gate Park, The Panhandle, Twin Peaks Upper Market, Japan Town and UCSF. In these districts you will find some of the most colorful original Circa 1880s Victorian architecture, world-wide cuisine, Napa Valley wine stores, farmers markets, various retail establishments, museums, shopping, movie theaters, libraries and cutting edge hospitals. Staying central to all of these locations is key to a successful sty in San Francisco. Why wouldn't you want to be a part of that?
