  • Elegant home

    "What a treat to stay in this elegant home for a few days. We were a group of five having a holiday reunion and we originally chose this house because it had 3 bedrooms, a reserved parking place (if you need it and request the permit), a convenient location, and it looked good in the pictures. We were delighted when it went beyond all our expectations. It is elegantly and comfortably furnished, and the views are incredible. it will be one of the great memories of our time in San Francisco."

  • Home away from home

    "My wife and I stayed here and loved it! The location makes it very easy to get almost anywhere. Castro street is just down the road and it made getting to places so easy. We stayed in Portrero Hill two years ago and while nice, preferred this location. The flat is nice and comfortable. At times we would spend the entire day with windows open just reading and relaxing. It really was wonderful. I'm an avid runner and found this location to be a great central hub to go on runs and explore a bit given how close we were to many landmarks. One side note, some may complain about parking, but really it was not a challenge at all. If you are okay with walking just a bit you'll have no trouble. Just mind the street signs and parking will be a distant memory. We stayed for 7 days and never had a problem with parking. This includes during the pride parade that was taking place upon our arrival. You really can't miss with this spot as the hosts are very prompt and gracious. We would most definitely consider staying here again."

  • Perfect Location

    "Did not touch the car for three days - public transport right on the doorstep. The apartment was just as described, with everything you could need for a very comfortable stay. Felt so at home. Loved the little touch of fresh fruit and cheese as a welcome. We were concerned on arrival about the renovations taking place next door, but the builders were considerate of guests, so not a problem. Local information from the owners was extremely useful. Great communication, and very easy to book. One request would be for some storage/drawers in second bedroom. Would highly recommend, and can't wait to come back!"

  • Perfect getaway apartment, location, and owner.

    "We can't say enough about our stay at the Charming Castro Garden Apartment - but must include that we wish we could have stayed longer. Guillermo met us at the apartment upon arrival and answered a handful of questions. Then he was available by text throughout - a very accommodating host. As for the Apartment - surprisingly homey and very well Appointed! We each have rentals in Colorado and learned from his comfortable yet uncluttered enhancements. The neighborhood and neighbors were quiet and the location was perfect - nestled in between two parks - and excellent for walking to the Castro, market street, and NoPa where we have relatives - many restaurants, stores, gyms, and coffee shops within a mile of the apartment. Since we're walkers and staying a little higher than the city, we didn't need a car and enjoyed the views as we ventured out. As an Architect, I enjoyed walking different routes back to the apartment and seeing the variety of old and new homes. More specifics? The bed is VERY comfortable - haven't slept this well on a vacation in years - and the bathroom is easily shareable for two with ample shelves, storage and elbow room. The Garden is a treat for viewing and sitting though we didn't spend enough time outside there. AND we enjoyed the counter height table and are now considering one for our home. Also: the 1 Bedroom Apt felt large for 2 and would have been comfortable for more, though we didn't want to share with Family. I would highly recommend this apartment and Guillermo as an owner and host - thank you for having us. We would definitely return and hope to on our next visit with family. Best wishes & safe travels to you."
