A bit of French countryside right in the heart of the Castro!
Come stay in a relaxing two bedroom home with a large garden in a beloved San Francisco neighborhood. The building is a great early 1900 Edwardian, excellently located on 18th street between Sanchez and Noe. You'll be 2 blocks down from Castro Street and 2 blocks up from Dolores Park. The Castro neighborhood is safe, friendly and full of restaurants, nightlife, interesting stores, and it even has it’s own 1920’s movie palace. The ultra hip Mission district is down the street and quiet Noe Valley is just over the hill. It is a short walk to Valencia street - which is packed with diverse restaurants, unique shops, specialty cafes and nightlife.
The house has vintage French flair, with lots of antique furniture and hardware - many of which were purchased from Paris's open-air markets. There are 2 bedrooms plus a sleeper sofa, thus sleeping up to 6 people. The master bedroom has an incredibly comfortable king bed and french doors that open onto a small private deck. The front bedroom has a brand new queen Keetsa mattress bed, a writing desk, and faces the street. Both bedrooms have roomy closets. The full bath has a tub and shower. The kitchen was designed and stocked with a chef in mind - you'll have all kinds of pots, pans, spices and implements at your command. The kitchen is large and open, with a gas stove, dishwasher, and custom oak cabinetry. The kitchen opens right into the sunny, garden-facing living room. The living room has a queen-sized sleeper sofa, bay window, and opens onto a large, private redwood deck overlooking the shared garden.
A beautiful new entrance way was just installed that now separates the home's doors from the street. Once inside the entry way, you may come into the home through the door to the front bedroom or the garden door in the back. (Previously, guests entered right from the street into the front bedroom.) The home owners are constantly making efforts to create an excellent experience for guests.
The entire house was completely renovated a few years ago, with new floors, bathrooms, kitchen, and appliances, and central heating. All of the cabinetry was custom built for the space by a local cabinet maker, doors and windows are salvaged antiques, and the hardware and furniture are vintage finds.
There is a 42" (107cm) flat-screen TV with cable TV, DVD player, and high speed wireless internet. There are no stairs to climb, and secure, off-street bicycle parking is available. The house has no garage, but street parking is 2 hour permitted parking in front of the house, and free week-long street parking is available a few blocks away.

We had some employees from out of state stay at the Castro Garden Home and they absolutely loved it. Sara was an amazing host and was there every step of the way to make sure everything was perfect. She was there to welcome the guests as they arrived and was extremely helpful. We will definitely stay at the Castro Garden Home again.
It was the best place I have stayed in SFO. Spacious two bedrooms, lovely kitchen and living area and charming backyard garden. No steps to drag up luggage.
Our stay was totally fantastic. The Castro Garden Home was super clean, had great amenities, and a really nice "French countryside" vibe to it. The location is amazing, close to both the Castro and the Mission for all your night-on-the-town needs. Would love to return in the future!
This was a great place to stay, beautiful home with a fantastic back yard. Excellent location. Sara was very accommodating with our last minute booking and very easy to deal with. Would definitely stay here again when I'm back in SF.
We had an absolutely incredible stay at the Castro Garden Home. Booking and checking in and out was incredibly easy and convenient. The apartment is beautiful and fit all of us perfectly and is in an extremely ideal location. I don't really know what else to say except this will be the first place I go to the next time I visit SF.
Very friendly hosts, super clean, very comfortable and well-maintained property. A great location as well. We enjoyed taking a break from hotels and staying in this property as we sojourned down to LA on the PCH. Recommended!
The location was perfect for us. 1 block to Dolores park and 2 blocks to kids' favorite ice cream place and cafes. We were 2 adults and 2 kids(3,5 years old and 8 months old baby.) both of the bedrooms have space to put baby's portable crib(we used Baby Bjorn crib). The garden was perfect for our older one to explore while the baby was having a nap. The kitchen is very well equipped. Both Sara and Jordan were so helpful. They even let us early check-in and late check out, which was really critical for us, because of our baby's napping schedule. The place was clean and the beds are comfortable. The coding entrance of the house (you are entering a code to enter the house) was a plus. You don't need to worry about where you put the keys. We would definitely recommend anyone and looking forward to stay there in our next visit.
We really enjoyed our stay at Loft and Garden house. It has a GREAT location near the Castro District and is a short walk away from the Mission District (plus close to public transit). The beds are comfortable and the central heating makes for a cozy stay. The front bedroom opens to the street, but we put the couple who got up the earliest in that room and they had no issues with street noise and they were able to get up early and grab us coffees :) Had we more time to spend, we would have definitely experienced the back garden more, but in a city like San Francisco there is just too much to see and do! The kitchen is well stocked, but we would have liked to see more board games in the house to give us something to do while we sipped our Californian Cab-Sauv. The front door keyless code entry is nice, as our group was able to split up during the days and not have to worry about keys. The hosts also have left lots of reading material on San Fran and city walking guides for guests to help determine how they will fill their days. All in all a wonderful experience in an amazing city. Thanks!
We were in town for the Nike Women's Marathon so the rates for hotel rooms skyrocketed in the city. A group of 6 stayed and all slept very comfortably. As mentioned in previous reviews, the front door opens into one of the bedrooms and that is probably the only awkward thing regarding the loft. When we entered it was clean and it was equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen and fully stocked with everything you need to make a wonderful dinner. The garden is beautiful and equipped with fresh herbs. The location is also amazing as well, al walking distances to Ike's place Bi-rite Creamery, Dolores Park, and the Muni system. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are a large group visiting San Francisco! We had a wonderful time!
It's a great apartment with an amazing backyard, beautiful kitchen/living room area, and perfect location. The keyed entry also makes arriving very easy.
The only downside is the front door opens up into the front bedroom, so there isn't perfect privacy.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
