We are the owners and our family of four lives upstairs. We're here to help if you need anything. We keep this space for guests only, so there isn't much personal clutter, just a few touches.
NOISE (IMPORTANT PLEASE READ)
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 7:00am to 10:00pm and occasionally during the night (the little ones are unpredictable). 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 such a great stay here! The studio is very spacious, the kitchen was super functional, and we had all needs met. Super clean which is a must for me... I'm a super picky traveler and was really pleased here. They are very upfront about the noise situation, which is very real. One would think... Oh how bad could it really be? But. It's loud. Felt like kids and the hallway traffic were IN our apartment with us. Lol But it would last only a couple hours at most. So, yes, thin walls and it gets pretty chilly at night. Also, the bathroom fan is a bit aggressive (loud!!) and doesn't have a separate switch from the light so you're stuck with it. Lol All things that aren't deal breakers for me considering how convenient, clean, spacious and comfortable the studio is, but worth explaining in case some are sensitive to noise. Overall I would be happy to stay at this studio again. Actually, ended up with a complimentary room at the luxury Morgan Group hotel, the Clift SF, for our last night in the city... and decided to stay put at the studio instead. :)
Good quality apartment. Plenty of space. Comfy bed. Apple tv for the odd movie Nice area with local transport.
There was a lot of noise from upstairs and other people in the building using the shared corridor and garden. Most was ok but clompy shoes and ball bouncing was annoying at times. But all bearable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment . It was clean and well appointed. Very close to a street car stop that took us into the central city and within easy walking distance are two food stores with a great selection of organic produce and delicatessens. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. While we were warned about children's activity above us it was not a problem, more that it was nice to know there was a family above us.
This is the perfect base for a visit to San Francisco. The area is full of great bars and restaurants within walking distance and transport is practically at your doorstep. The apartment is roomy, comfortable and has a well kitted out kitchenette if you prefer to shop locally and stay in. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Highly recommended!
Wonderful stay at a very comfortable place. Excellent location. Would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended.
Todd greeted us when we arrived and had two IPAs waiting for us in the fridge, which was exactly what we needed after our long journey. The studio is located close to public transportation, a convenience store, a wash & fold service, and tons of good restaurants and cafes. All our expectations were matched and the place is exactly as described.
Todd and Amy were really fantastic hosts. They accommodated us for both an early check in and kept our bags safe for our last day before a late flight out - allowing us to keep exploring San Francisco.
Their local recommendations were great - we suggest you try some out. The apartment is spacious, clean and well set up for visitors. Although we were warned about the family noise upstairs we can honestlku say it was at its loudest background distraction.
We loved the location. Easy walking distance to castro and mission fun and public transport if you ewant to get somehwere else. Highly recommended. We hope to get back sometime soon. Thanks Campbells.
