Recent Castro reviews

  • Perfect House

    "We were looking for a house that could accommodate 8 family members comfortably in a robust location. We found our match in the Castro district with this home. First, the house was absolutely spotless from top to bottom. Second, there was plenty of room for our entire party - each couple and both teenagers had their own rooms and access to one of the four bathrooms –there was no arguing over who was using them. The bathrooms were well appointed with plenty of clean towels, soap and shampoo, and soft robes. Third, with my brother and I being the ‘cooks’ of the family, we were more than happy to see the kitchen well stocked with basic provisions, high-end appliances and sufficient kitchen tools to meet our discerning needs. The only thing that was really missing were sharper knives! Regardless, we were able to cook problem-free five of the six nights of our stay. Finally, the garden area was also great with a BBQ where we all took turns basking in the sun and enjoying the December SF weather. The home was very well located and within walking distance to interesting areas such as Castro, the Mission District and Haight-Ashbury. It was also a surprisingly short underground ride to the Union Square shopping district, Chinatown and the Ferry Terminal. For groceries, a Safeway and Whole Foods were close by (within a 15 minute walk) as well as a couple of convenience and liquor stores within an even shorter distance. In summary the house was everything as advertised. Sharon was great from start to finish – we could not have asked for a better host. She even helped us get a parking pass for the week. We would not hesitate to rent this house again next time we are in San Francisco – perhaps even next year!"

  • Wonderful Location in a Beautiful and Private Ground Floor Apartment with Hot Tub

    "Our family of four stayed four nights at this lovely apartment located in the Corona Heights/ Castro neighborhood. Access to the subway, streetcars and the restaurants on Market/Castro streets was less than a ten minute walk away, and a well stocked corner convenience store was less than a three minute walk away. Our two teen aged daughters enjoyed taking walks through the neighborhood and soaking in the hot tub after a full day of touring San Francisco. For what we would have spent for a stay in a hotel room we were able to enjoy the experience of urbane apartment living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world."

  • Great Find in SF

    "We love SF. After 10+ visits and staying all over (Marina, Embarcadero, Nob Hill, Financial District, Telegraph Hill, Union Square, Tenderloin ...even Haight Ashbury) we decided to try the Castro District. It was FABULOUS... no regrets! The apartment is unbelievably large for a SF rental. It's clean, comfy, great shower, nice bed, plush towels and has a well-stocked kitchen. The neighborhood feels safe and has various transportation options (bus, subway, electric trolley) that are all within a leisurely 1-10 minute walk from your door. Lots of options for food are within 5-10 minute walk of your door too...including a grocery store if you decide to cook at “home”. I searched numerous places (both VRBOs and hotels) and after showing him all the options, he picked this place. He absolutely loved it and I did too. It’s a great find…. try it… you’ll be happy that you did. Hints: Try Mama Ji's for lunch - best Dim Sum around …especially the shrimp cilantro dumplings....yum. Take in a baseball game if you can (dress in layers) …go Giants! Go for Golden Gate Park Segway tour … we’re both 60 years young and had no problem. For breath-taking views, bike across the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito (Note: you WILL be sore afterwards; they don't call it "Blazing Saddles" for nothing!). There's great museums, endless restaurants, bars and live music, there's Muir Woods, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, cable car rides, etc, etc. etc. The list just goes on. You will run out of time far before you run out of things to do and explore. And best of all…. this apartment is a great jumping off point for doing as much or as little as you choose!!!"
