We are the owners and we live upstairs. We're here to help if you need anything. We keep this unit for guests only, so there isn't much personal clutter, just a few touches. Note that this unit is on the bottom floor of the building, so you will hear footsteps and the occasional dropped object above you. There are also small children living in the building, so you may hear those sorts of noises as well. We try to be respectful of your peace as much as possible, but if you are particularly sensitive to sound, this may not be the right place for you.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfect place to stay in a wonderful city. Studio is located between the Castro and Mission districts, really close to Tartine, Frances and Delores park (all of which are must-dos) and near bus and cable car stops that can get you pretty much anywhere really quickly. Todd and Amy are lovely people, and the studio has everything you could possibly want, including a comfy bed and even Netflix! Cannot recommend this place highly enough to anyone visiting SF.

  • Great studio apartment in what we now think is the best neighbourhood in San Fran. Fabulous restaurants and coffee shops, and super central. Amy and Todd were perfect hosts.

  • Thank you Todd and Amy for a delightful stay in your apartment. The apartment was spacious and well equipped, and we appreciated its central location for our first visit to San Francisco. Todd and Amy were the perfect hosts - attentive but never intrusive. The apartment comes with our warm recommendation!

  • LOVED this gorgeous apartment in the Castro/Mission. Me and my boyfriend wanted to spend most of our time in the Mission so this worked out much better for us location wise than getting a hotel in downtown. The apartment had everything we needed and Todd and Amy even made us a map of their favorite spots in the area! (check out Tartine, so yummy). If you need anything they are super easy to reach by text or phone, great hosts. Would definitely recommend their place to make your San Francisco stay a special one!

  • Todd & Amy's studio was wonderful, charming and immaculate.

    The studio is exactly as pictured, Todd was extremely friendly and helpful, allowing us to drop our bags off early! The location is really hard to beat, we fell in love with Dolores Park and it is literally a 3 minute walk away.

    We couldn't have been happier with our first AirBNB stay, and when we make it back to San Francisco this would be our first stop!

    Thank you for the amazing accommodations!

  • Todd and Amy's apartment was fantastic! It's in a great location in the Castro district, there is a tram car minutes walk away that can take you into the CBD and wharf. Todd was extremely helpful with a map of their favorite places to go and eat. The apartment itself had everything we needed. It was the largest AirBnB we have stayed in. If I ever come back to SF this will be my place of choice to stay.

  • Fantastic space in a great neighborhood. Well thought out and extremely well equipped it's a comfortable and uber cool space to spend time in. Communication was smooth with Todd and he even checked in personally to make sure we had everything we needed. We hope to be able to stay there again on our next visit to SF!

  • We really enjoyed out stay at Todd and Amy's! It was a great location, close to public transport and many great eateries. The studio is spacious, clean, private and secure. Todd and Amy have really put in the time to make sure their guests enjoy their stay, including a personal recommendations map of the local area, directions and instructions on how to use things in the unit. This is the ideal airbnb experience and I would recommend their studio to anyone.

  • The place was great, very clean in a good, slightly more residential area. Nice coffee shop on the corner, laundry right around the corner. We really appreciated the Welcome Beers and ample and great reading material.

  • Todd & Amy's apartment is located in an amazing spot - super safe, great access to transport, heaps of cute little cafés within walking distance & an overall great neighbourhood. Everything you could need is already in the apartment which was another bonus! We had a hiccup on arrival, but Todd & Amy were quick to rectify it & we were very appreciative of how they went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable. Thanks Todd & Amy, we would definitely love to stay in your apartment when we visit San Fran again!
