Our family of four lives upstairs. We're here to help if you need anything. We keep the studio for guests only, so there isn't much personal clutter, just a few touches.

The studio is on the bottom floor of a wood-framed building. Our family's main living space is directly above the studio, so you will hear us: footsteps, dropped objects, muffled voices, music, etc. Our family is generally active from 6:30am to 10:00pm and occasionally during the night (the little ones are unpredictable). The hallway and doors just outside the studio are also used by the building occupants. Most of our past guests have noticed the noise but have told us that it didn't bother them. If you are particularly sensitive to sound or suspect that it might keep you from enjoying your stay, this may not be the right place for you. It's important for us to know you are comfortable as we go about our business above you. A white noise machine and individually wrapped ear plugs are provided in the studio.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

We had a very good time at Todd's and Amy's place. The studio is very well provided with everything one may need throughout a stay and perfectly located in the Castro central to most of the SF daily tour destinations. The communication with Todd during our stay was excellent Thumbs up!

We had the pleasure of staying at Todd and Amy’s place for four nights. The flat is really spacious, tastefully decorated with good attention to detail and it is very well equipped (fresh high quality coffee beans and ice cold beers were a particularly nice touch on arrival!) Despite of the slight jet lag, we immediately felt at home in this wonderful gem of a flat in a safe and interesting neighbourhood. The location was perfect for exploring our favourite neighbourhoods which were in the immediate proximity of the studio. With Dolores park and a plethora of interesting food joints and haunts around, we really couldn't ask for much more. Todd and Amy had also created their own neighbourhood map with fantastic tips that we readily took advantage of! Thanks to fact that the studio is tucked away from the street, we had really good night's sleep. It was easy to adjust the heating level and the white noise machine also proved to be helpful in drifting to a peaceful sleep.Todd is a really friendly and knowledgeable guy and he keenly answered our (plentiful) questions. He even took the time to help us with printing some reservations and researching nearby hikes, reachable by public transport. Thanks again for your hospitality! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to stay here again, one day.

Todd and Amy's place was just what we're were after in San Fran. The neighbourhood is hip and friendly yet really close to travel and check out the rest of the city. The apartment was clean and comfortable and felt like a home away from home. There were noise distractions however they have made efforts to try an minimise for guests.

This studio is well maintained, clean, very comfy bed and has all that you need for a short stay and the location is fantastic. Close to the wonderful Castro neighbourhood and transport links. All of the tips, general information, check-in details etc. were spot on and sent in advance. I would stay again and would recommend to a friend!
