About This Listing
Luxurious and modern hotel-style room in the heart of the Castro! Just steps from all the bars, restaurants, cafes and Castro Street itself. Easy access to public transit, just minutes from downtown. Located between Dolores and Duboce parks, the perfect San Francisco vacation getaway!
Beautiful and fully furnished, it is on the second floor of a small modern building. The approximately 300 square foot space is totally private, including its own huge en suite bathroom. It is large, peaceful, and quietly situated in the back of the building.
The room is clean and contemporary with many modern amenities including a mini refrigerator and microwave oven. There is a 40" flat screen television for watching Netflix and high speed WiFi internet access.
The oversized private bathroom features a deep luxurious Jacuzzi tub and a separate walk in shower. Perfect for unwinding after a day of shopping and sight seeing.
The space can easily accommodate up to two people with an extra thick, incredibly comfortable queen size real bed. A huge walk in closet makes it easy to store suit cases and hang clothes.
Nearby, secure, GARAGE PARKING is available upon request for an additional fee. No late check ins after 10pm.
Guests will have access to their own private rooms. There is no kitchen, just a microwave and mini refrigerator in each room.
Interaction with Guests
I always try to greet the guests upon their arrival. I am always accessible via phone or text during their stay. Otherwise they have privacy and independence.
Located in the heart of the Castro, one of San Francisco's most popular neighborhoods!
Public transportation is very accessible with popular bus lines right outside the door, and the Castro Muni station just one block away.
I am looking for non smokers. There is absolutely no smoking or burning candles allowed in the building. No entertaining in the room, only approved, registered guests are allowed on the premises. No pets or animals of any kind. No late check ins after 10pm.
Beautiful apartment in a very convenient location. Definitely recommend staying at John's place.
John made our first Airbnb experience so easy. The apartment is in the heart of Casto. Location can't get any better. The weekend we stayed San Francisco was having a bit of a heat wave and thankfully John had a window AC unit to keep the room cool. The baskets of snacks and mini fridge with water, soda, and beer is a nice touch! The private bathroom is very large and John has it stocked with body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. Our friends stayed in the other room that is available at Johns so that made the trip even more convenient for planning and getting ready to go sight see San Francisco. Overall a great experience!
Loved the room and the neighbourhood. It is a couple short blocks from the Castro MUNI station, so getting around San Fran was a breeze. The room is very spacious and the bathroom is huge! John was very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in San Francisco.
THE PLACE AND THE HOST - this was my first air bnb experience and although I was confident because of all the rave reviews John had received I was still a bit anxious. Well, I'm about to become one of those people who leave another great review. I hope he hasn't set the bar too high for the other air bnb hosts I meet and places I stay. He is genuine, friendly and puts you right at ease. He is quick to respond (for example, he was giving me live commentary about how to get to his place from the airport on public transport through texts, while I was on public transport). He has great recommendations for food and places to see (he has put together a great folder and collection of brochures which is so helpful for a tourist - rather than wasting time at visitors centers and wondering), he made us a very welcoming snack basket and fridge full of cold drinks which came in handy because we were able to start exploring straight away with plenty of energy to keep us going! All these things help. Above all, he was a consummate professional. The place was clean, huge and having your own bathroom is such a nice treat, and I always felt safe and secure.
THE LOCATION - John's place in the Castro area is a great base to explore San Francisco. I didn't realise how large San Francisco was before visiting and I think this place is perfectly located to see all the major sites and is hugely accessible by public transport. The other great thing is that there are lots of cafes around it (including good coffee which I know will be important to a lot of Australians), so you can start and end your day close to home if you wish. There are lots of bars in the area if you want to go out, but it is still quiet enough to get a good night's rest (in comparison to some of the really touristy areas).
The real test is whether I'd stay there again and that would be a BIG YES! Thanks John.
Wonderful experience. The room was everything it was shown to be. John was a great host. He had information readily available and little snacks and drinks to get you started. The private room and bath was just perfect for the getaway trip. This being our first experience has made it well worth the while and trip. We would definitely stay again.
We had a perfect stay at John's place. John is a great host, the room is beautiful and we loved the location. We would always return.
Nice place to stay in a very convenient location, around lots of bars and places to eat. The appartement is situated in Castro District and is really close to public transportation. The room is spacious, clean and as described. Even though we did not really get to meet John, he was easy to make arrangements with by phone for check in/check out. John added some cute touches as well, leaving us snacks and beverages in the room.
