Castro apartment description

Spacious and inviting this rare, large one bedroom contemporary flat is available to you for an unforgettable stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Located in a quiet, friendly and enticing neighborhood, delightful surprises abound. Everyday necessities are in close walking proximity. Clean and handsome with every amenity thought out for your satisfaction and relaxation, this gem will be the perfect base for your visit in the Bay Area whether it is an extended stay, vacation, or romantic get-a-way.

In the center of San Francisco, you are within walking distance of some of the most beautiful vistas and panoramas of the city, parks and green areas, “happening” neighborhoods, world class restaurants with their Celebrity Chefs, and an active community library and resource center. The metro (both Muni and Bart) can quickly take you in any direction you need to go, or, more leisurely on the vintage street cars rolling torward the waterfront to the landmark Ferry Building. The electric #33 bus line is steps away with connections all over the city.

The neighborhood, known as Eureka Valley or “The Castro” is the pearl in the oyster. Sunny even when the notorious fog of summer rolls off of Twin Peaks.
