Welcome to living like a real San Franciscan! We’ve put a lot of love and care into creating a wonderful home away from home for our guests. Our historic 1894 Victorian is right in the center of the City, close to the hustle and bustle of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods yet quiet, private and extremely comfortable. The flat is located just blocks away from the world-famous Castro district, but feels as though you're living in a small village. Quiet and tranquility abound both inside the flat and in the backyard, featuring views of Twin Peaks.

The 1,100 square foot (102 square meters) flat combines original period details with modern amenities and comfort. Featuring two spacious bedrooms, one with a king bed and one with two queen beds, this fabulous apartment easily accommodates the single traveler, a couple, or up to five friends or family.

Our place is unique in San Francisco because of its large and amazingly lush backyard, professionally designed to maximize outdoor living. You can sun tan on the large wooden deck, meditate by the fountain, or have an al fresco lunch at the eight-seat table right under the Angel Trumpet tree. After a long day of sightseeing or shopping, have a cocktail by the fire pit or indulge in the chemical-free eco friendly hot tub and watch the stars above Sutro Tower.

Maximum occupancy of 4 adults or families up to 5 (two adults and up to three children)

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: We're David and Tudor, and we'd be happy to welcome you to our flat! We live in the flat upstairs, which unfortunately isn't as fab as the one our guests get to enjoy! We will do as much as possible to make sure you plan and enjoy your San Francisco vacation in the most efficient way (starting with offering the prime place to stay!). One of us is a San Francisco native (a rare species indeed!), giving you an insiders take on the places to go and get the most out of your trip. The other one of us was born in Eastern Europe but moved to California for an opportunity to study here. You can guess which is which when you arrive... We love to travel the world. When we go someplace new, we like to enjoy great food, discover neighborhoods and shops, and search out the cultural happenings of our vacation destinations. We're happy to pass along our knowledge of San Francisco in these areas (and more) and give you a local's view of the city. We have rented homes through VRBO for nearly 10 years and always have a great time at the properties we visit. We look forward to welcoming you to San Francisco and the Castro to repay the hospitality we have received over the years!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We have lovingly restored our 1894-built Victorian home over the years. We have worked hard to create an urban sanctuary of quiet and ideal outdoor living. You will be hard pressed to find another home in San Francisco, or any other global city, where you feel at peace while being only 5 minutes away from one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the world. The most common remark from our guests? How much they all loved 'coming home' to the flat after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. Come discover for yourself! You won't be disappointed.
