Castro house description

Beautiful, spacious, 3200 sqare foot, 3 level home in San Francisco’s best neighborhood on a quiet tree lined street. The Castro is hip, vibrant, and almost always sunny. Public transportation, great restaurants and shopping are just steps away. This home has WiFi throughout and is a 5 BR/4 bath house that sleeps up to 14 with three Queen beds, two full beds, and 7 twins. The main level has high ceilings, crown moldings and hardwood floors, with an open concept living/dining and kitchen. Kitchen has heated floors and is fully equipped with cookware, beautiful dishes, spices, etc. Sliding doors open out to a slate patio with trees and flowers and outdoor seating. There is also a new Weber gas grill BBQ. Wood burning fireplace in living room, a 55 ' flat screen TV and DVD player. There are two bedrooms on this floor, one with a double bed and one with a queen bed and an en suite bath with walk-in shower. There is also a full bath on this level, as well as a washer/dryer.
Upstairs on the second floor there is a master suite with gas fireplace and seating area, huge bathroom with large soaking tub and huge shower with a rainforest shower head and additional wall jets. The bath has top of the line finishings, custom tile, double sinks, heated floors, and granite countertop. The queen bed is made with luxury linens and there is a 42” Flat screen TV with blue ray player.
There are two additional bedrooms on this level, one with a full bed and a twin trundle that pulls out, and the other has bunk beds and ensuite bath. and the third bedroom on this floor has access to this same bath through the hallway. The bath has a large jacuzzi tub, shower above that, glass shower screen and custom tile.
On the third floor there is a family room with skylights, gas fireplace, Wii and many games, ping-pong table, and day bed (twin), with an extremely comfortable double sofa sleeper (no bars, it's like a real bed), and three twin platform beds. Since it is a private space (this room takes up the whole floor) we use it as a 6th bedroom as well.
We try to combine the best of being in a hotel with the warmth and comfort of a home, and to that end we have spa robes in the bathrooms, chocolates by each bed and a chilled bottle of excellent California wine waiting for you upon your arrival.
This is a great house for families as the kids can be in the third floor rec room entertaining themselves and the adults can socialize two floors down in the main living room area.
There is Wifi throughout the entire house.

From our location, sightseeing in San Francisco starts when you leave the house. We are located in an historic neighborhood three blocks away from the Antique Trolley Line and the MUNI metro. We offer easy access to San Francisco's most popular sightseeing destinations. We are located two short blocks away from supermarkets, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, spas, shopping and most anything else you may want. Come enjoy the best SF has to offer!

                  Location

                  We are located in the geographic center of San Francisco, in a neighborhood that is almost always sunny. SF can be foggy and cold in the summer, but not at our house! We are on a quiet dead end street, but we are 3 blocks from great restaurants, cafes, gourmet grocery stores and shops. We are also 3 blocks from public transit that takes you all over the city. We are the perfect home base for a relaxing, comfortable, wonderful vacation.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We are San Francisco natives who love our city! This neighborhood is so vibrant, sunny, interesting and central to the whole city, we couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Come and enjoy this beautiful home to enhance your experience of this amazing city!

                  Why the Owner Chose Castro:
                  We chose this neighborhood as it is in the geographic center of SF. It is close to everything, has great vitality, and is almost always sunny.The Castro has some of the best restaurants and shopping in the city, all within a few blocks of the house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is a great house for large families. Our third floor recreation room is two flights up from the kitchen/ living room area, allowing adults to enjoy some private socializing while the kids have a great time upstairs playing ping-pong or video games on our 55 inch flat screen TV. The main floor is ideal for large family meals, enjoying each other while a warm fire is going in the fireplace.
