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.

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!
We loved our stay with Todd & Amy. The location is superb, an easy walk to both the BART and the MUNI. Blocks from the beautiful Dolores Park, colorful Castro street, awesome restaurants and sightseeing. The studio was very clean and tastefully furnished. My husband especially loved the local beers in the fridge and I loved the thoughtful map with their favorite places.
We also had our 7 month old daughter with us and Todd provided a pack-n-play and sound machine! We all slept great, the bed is very comfortable and soft linens. And great water pressure in the shower!
We didn't notice any noise, it was a very peaceful place to return to at the end of each day.
Todd was also extremely helpful when our travel plans changed. Very quick to respond to questions and such a nice guy. We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone visiting San Francisco!
The apartment blew me away. It was very well designed and super practical. I had such a nice stay it was hard to pack up and go. Todd and Amy are wonderful hosts. Todd even made a map of the neighborhood with all his favorite spots and descriptions. Awesome time!
We had a great stay for 8 nights - apartment is very clean and airy - it is only 5 min walk from the MUNI "Castro" stop which gets you down to the Embarcadero in 10 mins, off peak.
The F streetcar stops 5 mins away too but that take a good bit longer, though it is above ground so you can see more of how the city looks - it takes about 45 mins to get to Fisherman's Wharf at the end of the line.
The 16th and Mission BART stop is a 10-15 min walk from the house.
There is a wonderful array of food nearby - we ate mainly on Valencia St, about 10 min walk away - that had big crowds filling up the many spots - Beretta and West of Pecos were two we liked especially.
Todd and Amy were very friendly and welcoming and were available if we had any questions.
SF is a great city and is changing a lot - Market St is being overhauled big time so there are (slightly) fewer homeless crazies wandering about in its mid section.
And weather was superb - it beats the Jan snow in NYC.
Recommend it highly!
Todd and Amy were excellent hosts! They were extremely accommodating and very responsive on the airbnb website. Their place was beautiful and comfortable, exactly as advertised. It is in a great location and I would highly recommend it to others who are interested.
