A Thoughtful and Restful Space
Perfectly located for a San Francisco experience. Two short blocks to the Castro Muni line and Castro hub - with many different options for eating from the friendly diner to upscale offerings. The apartment is thoughtful equipped, charming in decor and sparkling in cleanliness. Highly recommend!!
A great choice!
Clean, inviting, comfortable and charming. On a personal note, Laurence and Nick were helpful finding some local artisan sales so we could find authentic souvenirs instead of the typical tchotchkes from the tourist traps. Would gladly return and enjoy their hospitality and lovely accommodations any time. Thank you for being the perfect choice in lodging and as hosts for our first trip to San Francisco.
Great Castro Neighborhood Apartment
My wife and I stayed in Laurence and Nick's studio for six nights. As others have said, it is located in a great neighborhood and it is so very convenient to public transportation. Taking the Bart and Muni from the airport was very easy and we took the subway and buses to every corner of the city. I had been to Alcatraz 40 years ago and when we went this trip, we were both impressed with what the National Park Service had done. We also really enjoyed the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. There is some street noise as expected in the city, but we have a travel sound machine and we had no trouble sleeping. The apartment was a great place to return to each night and the bed is very comfortable. Thanks Laurence and Nick!
Location, location, location
This cozy studio apartment is in a super convenient location close to the excitement of the City, yet offers a private retreat for relaxing at the end of the day. Laurence greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a quick tour of the apartment, which is well appointed with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Just one block from Market Street/Castro Sreet where public transportation makes for easy access to anywhere in the City. Restaurants, bars, markets and shops are all located within a few blocks. We visit San Francisco at least twice per year and will definitely
stay here again.
Awesome location and neighborhood!
The apartment was very comfortable and well kept. It had nice amenities, including the gas fireplace which helped to take the evening chill off.
Good landing pad for exploring San Francisco
This studio apartment was nicely appointed, clean and had most everything we needed as a landing pad after each exciting day exploring San Francisco. Our hosts were welcoming and provided an entire book of information about the area including restaurants, stores, transportation, etc. Laurence kindly allowed us to store our luggage the last day so we could stay in SF as long as possible prior to heading to the airport. There are many restaurants, bars and stores a quick walk away. We enjoyed breakfast at Raggedy Andy's and Squat and Gobble, dinner at Catch and L'Ardoise. We took BART in from the airport which worked well, choosing to walk a lot once we dropped our bags and use Lyft when we got tired. We visited Golden Gate Park, GG Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, de Young Fine Arts Museum, Nob Hill, Height Ashbury and many other neighborhoods. When in San Francisco next, we will certainly check to see if this space is available.
Located on a Magnolia tree lined residential street just north of San Francisco's famous Castro District. This quiet residential neighborhood is safe and walkable with nice restaurants and shops. And across Market Street is the historic Castro Street theater, restaurants, bars and shops. One block away is our weekly Farmer's Market (seasonal). Located within blocks of ALL San Francisco MUNI light rail lines and the historic F line which features historic street cars from around the world and is a fantastic way to travel to Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf and more. You won't need a car! See the map - look how many parks are located nearby. Hike? Play tennis? There are a number of tennis courts nearby - play tennis surrounded by redwoods and views of the Golden Gate and San Francisco Bay. Or walk a few blocks down 16th Street to Mission Dolores which is where San Francisco was founded. VIsit the historic wooden church which still holds services in German. Dine outside and enjoy the California sun.
