Our apartment has been professionally designed and furnished. Attention to every detail is what separates us from other vacation rentals: luxurious Egyptian cotton linens, goose-down comforters, premium firm mattresses, tasteful artwork, hand-blown Italian glass lighting fixtures, bathrooms with floor-to-ceiling marble tile, full soaking tubs with jacuzzi jets, separate walk-in showers and European faucets and fixtures.

The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops, modern stainless steel energy-star appliances and include touches like a super-quiet dishwasher and a pro-series 5-burner gas range. The kitchen is fully stocked for the professional chef with matching full service for eight, Henkle knives, professional series cookware and every gadget and gizmo you'll need. We even include basics like an array of organic spices, a pepper grinder, sea salt, organic olive oil, balsamic vinegar and basic condiments.

A washer/dryer are free to use and we even supply eco-friendly detergent.

Even though you will be staying on one of the most serene residential streets in San Francisco, you'll be just a half a block from Market Street, the palm-tree lined main artery of San Francisco. Historic street cars run above ground and efficient subway lines run below. You will be one block away from the F line, a street car that takes you directly to Fisherman's Wharf. Also one block away is a high-speed subway that will get your anywhere in the city within minutes.
With over 300 restaurants within one mile of the flat you can be assured of a feast for all the senses with unique boutique shops, theaters and nightclubs as well as the everyday services you use at home; like world class yoga and fitness centers, independent book stores, big city parks, tennis courts and gourmet grocery stores. For solitude just retreat to the gorgeous landscaped garden in the rear with water features and a slate patio and deck. it's the perfect place to have a glass of wine after a long day of sight-seeing.

This home is a green property. We never use any harsh chemicals or sprays and our service cleans immaculately with all-natural products. We encourage and make it easy to recycle if you wish and our electricity comes from renewable suppliers. We feature energy-efficient appliances and all-natural fabrics in all our linens; like our Organic Egyptian Cotton 600 thread count sheets! Our gardens are drip-irrigated for low water usage and we use no pesticides or herbicides. We offer organic teas and gourmet fair trade coffee, natural soaps and toiletries are stocked from EO Organics, even the carpeting is from an environmentally conscious company.

Once you're checked in you'll have complete privacy, but we will give you a special phone number to call that will always reach one of us if you have any questions or concerns.
The owner and the manager together have traveled to over 60 countries and speak French and Spanish. International travelers are always welcome.

The Castro subway station is one block away; linking you to the entire City, and BART for east bay and airport connections.

We offer airport pickup via town car (3-4 persons) or 6 passenger SUV limousine. ($85/$150).

If you want to be car free, it's very easy to do at this location. If you want a car, we have garage parking available.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: I've traveled to more than 40 countries and I think San Francisco is one of the best cities on earth and the Castro neighborhood is THE BEST of San Francisco, It's a hip, super clean and safe, vibrant and diverse neighborhod - really the quintessential San Francisco spot. The weather is great; nice and sunny even when most the City is fogged in and cold. The only thing better than living here, is getting to share it with others. I love making sure my guests have an amazing stay and have total privacy as well. I worked at the Ritz Carlton for years and the experience stuck with me. I've made the flats a luxury home away from home, with everything as perfect as possible. I'm sure you'll love it here at Casa Luna SF. Cheers, Wyatt

                  Why the Owner Chose Castro:
                  It's the best neighborhood in the City. Great weather, central location, quintessential San Francisco experience. Super safe, hip and fun.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  We're just up the block from a major subway stop and the center of the City. You can stay here and have total quiet, but then just walk out the door and you're in a thriving neighborhood! tons of interesting folks, great restaurants and pubs, awesome shopping at one of a kind stores, fun bars and clubs, the best coffee shop in SF (Peet's) and so much more. Oh yea, you can get anywhere in the city with one $2 subway ride.
