The perfect place for our 5 day stay in SF

  • 4 of 5

We had an active trip visiting with friends, catching a Giants game, going to museums and other joys of the city and location was just right.

It is just as advertised and very comfortable.

Couldn't have been easier!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our dog) needed to find an apartment quickly during some construction work at our usual SF home. Stewart was very responsive to our initial request on VRBO, and once we moved in, he was quick to address any questions we had during our stay. The apartment is conveniently located near public transit and the Castro neighborhood (just be prepared to hike - the hill to the apartment is steep, and you take a flight of stairs to reach the front door). The apartment isn't that large and doesn't have a full kitchen (two burners, no oven, small fridge/freezer though larger than a hotel mini-fridge), but it's perfect for a quick stay and is a great jumping off point to explore SF. Thanks Stewart!

Great Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

Stewart is a great host. He provided us with useful information in advance of our visit and checked in with us once we were there to make sure all was okay. The apartment is definitely as advertised, very clean and comfortable. The apartment is convenient to the Castro Muni Station so it was very easy to take BART from the airport, transfer to MUNI and walk the five blocks, but one does need to be prepared for the steepness of the hill on the last two blocks; this is San Francisco after all! We would definitely stay here again as we really enjoyed our week staying here and the ease of getting to public transportation was a bug plus! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone contemplating a visit to San Francisco! Thanks, Stewart, for helping to make our stay most pleasant.

Kihei, HI

great place in a fun neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in Stewart's apartment for five nights as a home base for visiting college campuses in the area. We enjoyed short walks through the neighborhood to find delicious restaurants and coffee shops (we highly recommend Five Star Truffles!!). We had rented a car and had no trouble finding street parking very close to--sometimes directly in front of--the apartment on evenings and the weekend. The apartment itself is small, but there was plenty of room for the two of us and all of our belongings for a week-long trip. The bathroom is very spacious with plenty of room for two women to get ready simultaneously. The kitchen was fine for our purposes--we used it only to prepare coffee and reheat leftovers from the nearby restaurants. The bed was very comfy and we both slept wonderfully. Although the bedroom window looks out onto the street, it was not noisy. (I had brought ear plugs just in case, but there was absolutely no need to use them.) All in all, it was a very positive experience, and we would definitely consider staying in this cute little apartment again!

Great Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in this great Castro apartment and was very pleased. The apartment was large, clean, and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom quiet. I slept very well. Only a short walk from all the restaurants, clubs, and coffee shops on Castro Street and the Castro Muni station. Very convenient location. Good TV and Wifi. I didn't cook but the kitchen had everything I needed. I would definitely stay here again and do recommend it to other travelers.
