About Regina

We are both passionate travelers and love visiting new places and meeting new people. Although we love traveling we also love to come back home to San Francisco. We have called San Francisco our home for over a decade and we never tire of the wonderful weather, the friendly people and the amazing culture and politics here. We have lived in our home almost two years, it was built before the earthquake of 1906 and the outside has been restored to reflect it's historic origins. Thankfully the inside has been fully modernized and our guest apartment is as modern and luxurious as most downtown hotels! We love having visitors and hope to help our guests enjoy the many sites and experiences San Francisco has to offer.

Regina purchased this apartment in 2010

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice, spacious apartment with easy access to the room without disturbing the family upstairs. Castro Street is a 2 minute walk with plenty of great restaurants and coffee shops. The noise of footsteps is loud in the morning, but if you're planning on touring the city, you'll be up anyways. The owner is very accommodating and flexible depending on your travel plans. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful home, great neighborhood and people with access to everything.

  • 5 of 5

I’ve never written a review for any place I’ve been to and I just had to review this place. Regina treated us to a very nice and comfortable stay with everything you could possibly need. The neighborhood was amazing and filled with people that say hi when walking by. Just a few short blocks away you have access to all public transportation, plenty of amazing food and coffee shops. This was our first experience in SF and we will definitely be returning for another stay here.

Close to the Castro, Church and Market Streets, this ground floor accommodation was comfortable and convenient. The owner Regina was responsive and friendly. Wish there were a a little kitchenette and table area so we could prepare and eat our breakfasts and make some drip coffee but this was easily surmounted as there are lots of cafes nearby.

Quiet, beautiful, central location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to be! I was in town for a conference held downtown, and this was the perfect place to come home to after a busy day. It's super close to public transportation, and the location is beautiful and packed with great restaurants and shops. Regina was a fantastic host and very easy to work with. The apartment is much larger than I expected, and the garden just off the bedroom is a beautiful place to sit with your coffee in the morning to start the day. I had nothing but wonderful experiences, and it was in many ways the best thing about my trip.

The apartment is a wonderful base for sightseeing. Located in the heart of the Castro but just a 5 minute walk from the bustling Valencia corridor in the Mission and a 10 minute train ride to all the down town museums and amenities. Coffee shops, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and shops are all just minutes from your front door. Also tennis courts, basketball and a beautiful public park with fabulous city views is located within a ten minute walk. Dolores Park is also home to a wonderful new children's playground and hosts outdoor cinema and other events throughout the Summer. This apartment is located on the ground floor of a private home. There is a young family living above so there will be noise from above at breakfast and dinner time and other than that the place will be very quiet and peaceful.
