  • 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!"

  • Very Nice Stay at Fab Flat

    "We stayed here for 8 nights and had a very comfortable stay. The location in the Castro was great as it was close to the Muni station, very close to the #33 bus, yet a few blocks away from the busy section in the Castro so the area was very quiet. We were a family of four and it was nice for our children to each have their own bed in the 2nd bedroom. The beds were VERY comfortable. Yes, the house is an older house, but it is clean and everything worked. About the only thing I could recommend is to move the microwave a bit lower down to one of the counters. Having it on top of the fridge was a bit inconvenient. Great place and can definitely recommend."

  • This apartment was so comfortable and beautiful.

    "I had a lovely stay in this apartment. I was working and visiting family for 9 days and just found this a lovely retreat. Beautiful sun in the morning in the kitchen, lovely windows in the living room area, comfortable bed, with extra special sheets. So close to the action on Castro but so quiet in the evening. Barbara is a wonderful host and this apartment had all of the touches that make a place feel homey, including lovely posters on the wall, different options for making coffee, and plenty of outlets for charging all of your electrical devices. I will definitely stay here again when I visit San Francisco. Highly recommended!"

  • Great house for a group

    "This is a great house that made us feel like we were visiting the real San Francisco. Four business associates stayed while in town for a show at Moscone Center. The location is convenient to transportation and walking for eating. I wish we had another week in town to explore the area. I must also say that literally the first person we saw walking down the street when we pulled up was naked. So be prepared for a real SF experience and just go with the flow. The house was large and well appointed. Everything we needed was there and Elizabeth & Anthony made us feel very welcome to stay and care for it as if we were at home. There is much evidence of family & family activities around the house and a lot of the kids artwork on the walls. If you expect sterile and clean with no evidence of anyone else having been there then this place is not ideal for you, but if warm and homey are good with you, then settle on in. The fact that it has a garage made renting a car easy. The garage is a bit difficult to get in and out of and will probably take the effort of two people (a guide) until you are used to it, but it is a plus. I see someone else commented also, the issue is the incline makes visibility difficult and the pedestrians, traffic, parked cars and a nice tree in a bad place make it hard to manage without experience. Bottom line is I would go stay again without hesitation and I think that is the best recommendation I could give."
