The garden apartment is part of a large Edwardian home that has been renovated with every attention to detail. Crystal doorknobs with brass accents, period glass light fixtures, Berber carpeting and crown molding are just a part of the beauty of this incredible 1908 property.

The apartment has been tastefully decorated and furnished by a professional interior designer and features a King sized bed with memory foam pillowtop, Egyptian Cotton sheets and linens and down comforters. Beautiful artwork, some original, accents the walls and brings a modern feel to the space.

A living room with Queen sized pull out memory foam sofa bed is amazingly comfortable and cozy.

About Kristoffer Cusick and Dan Hickle

Hi! Kristoffer and Dan here and we want to welcome you. Dan works in Marketing and Kristoffer is an actor on Broadway and television. Having lived in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and abroad, we have traveled to many countries and love meeting new people. We have always enjoyed the experience of staying in a home or apartment versus a hotel when we travel because of the ability to experience a city more fully. We have always stayed in beautiful apartments or homes with luxurious amenities and felt it was important to offer the same to those travelers who came to stay with us. We love to experience restaurants, bars, museums and everything a city has to offer and have many many wonderful suggestions for you when you come to stay!

Kristoffer Cusick and Dan Hickle purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Kristoffer Cusick and Dan Hickle chose San Francisco

We chose to buy this property because of its central location and ease of getting just about anywhere you want to go in the city in minutes. The beauty of the neighborhood and homes that surround was also a selling point to us. We love San Francisco and the fact that in 10 minutes you can be at the beach, waterfront, luxury shopping, a concert, running in Golden Gate Park or relaxing in a sidewalk cafe in any of the cities thriving and vibrant neighborhoods. Napa, Sonoma and wine country are just an hour drive away and you can be skiing the slopes near Tahoe all day long and back home in time for dinner!

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is quite special in that it is extremely private and lush in its surroundings. The garden and gazebo, private hot tub and top notch amenities keep it in a class all its own. Walking to Cafe Flore on Market Street for a morning coffee and pastry or relaxing by the fire table with a glass of wine at night before slipping into the hot tub for a soak are just a few of the amazing things at your disposal when you stay Beyond The Palm.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“The accommodation was just perfect, it is in an ideal location within the city which allows you to feel part of the city but be able to escape at the same time. The accommodation is spacious and very clean, there was two of us but even if four people shared the space it would be more than big enough. We chatted to Dan on our arrival who kindly showed us around and showed us how everything worked. Everything was perfect and you can tell the the hosts see this as an extension of there own home. The outdoor space is a massive bonus and the perfect place after a day of site-seeing, the outdoor tub is brilliant and the fire pit is the perfect place to drink a few glasses of wine. The home is located in a great area with some amazing restaurants and bars, the welcome manual is full of information. The home is only a five minute walk from the tram line which only costs $2.25 to get all the way into the city. If you are looking for a spacious, clean, immaculate property with the bonus of the outside space then look no further than this property. when we return to the city we will not stay anywhere else. Dont look elsewhere this is the place to stay in San Fran. ”

Better than pictures. It was like our own resort.

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect. Walk to morning coffee, dinner or for an evening sweet. Close parking was always easy to find.

The gardens are more beautiful than can be described. You enjoy them every time you come, go, or just want to sit and relax.

The unit has everything you need - and more. If you are considering this property - just book it ! You will be happy you did.

Kristoffer & Dan, thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of San Francisco with us.

Beautiful... highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Kristoffer was so friendly and welcoming... he made us feel right at home. We loved the hot tub in the beautiful garden. It really was an oasis, right in the middle of the city.

The apartment was a nice, private change of pace from the cramped hotel rooms we'd been staying in on the first leg of our trip. Our family of four enjoyed being able to spread out a bit. Nice having the laundry and kitchen option too. We also liked that it was just a stroll away from a market and several eating options. The neighborhood felt safe, we had no trouble finding parking there, and it wasn't too far to drive to other areas of interest (I won't say driving around SF was easy for us small-towners, but that would probably be true no matter where you stayed).

Unlike many other places we've stayed in the past with misleading photos, this one was even nicer in person. It felt bright and cheerful, the garden smelled lovely, and the entire place was clean, obviously loved, and well cared for. The towels and robes were plush; the bed was firm, with plenty of fluffy pillows. My husband would have liked a little more water pressure from the gentle rain showerhead, but that's a personal preference. Overall, the bathroom was nicely done.

All-in-all, I would definitely recommend... it was quiet and peaceful and felt like coming home, which was much appreciated after a long day of sight-seeing. Our host was so, so nice and sweet to my kids, which made the stay fun and memorable for them too.

Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Great place for your SF visit

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfortable apartment, also for a family of 4 with 2 young children. The hot-tub is fantastic to relax in after a day cruising the city. The kitchen is ok, even though it seems that the guests are more likely to dine in a Castro-restaurant than to prepare the meals in the apartment. Which is easy to understand. The hosts are very friendly, uncomplicated and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much and would choose the location again.

Hidden gem

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a week stay in San Francisco and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Beyond the Palm is like a hidden gem set back from the street with an inviting little entrance. Place tastefully decorated and fit our needs. Loved that it had a washer/dryer and a king size bed, not easy to find in a rental property. Even though we did not utilize public transportation it was very close to it, some Uber drivers had a difficult time finding the address to drop us off but it was easy to show them the way. We were in the hot tub every night. Only complaint was that you could here Dan, Kristoff, and guests walking above and at times it was very loud and also could use a few more ice trays in the mini fridge freezer. We did utilize grocery delivery and it was nice to have drinks and snacks delivered as we unpacked. Great place and location for San Francisco.
