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.
Only confirmed guests allowed on premises. No parties please.

We stayed here for one week and it was great! The apartment is located on a quiet, safe and well-lit street, close to both a BART station and several Muni stops. It's a perfect size for a party of two - it was clean, well-maintained, comfortable, and felt like home. There is ample closet space, the kitchen is well-equipped and, as others mentioned, the hosts included a convenient map of the neighborhood that showed where to get groceries and cheap/great eats. Todd and Amy were responsive and helpful and the noise from the family was minimal. We will definitely stay again when we return to SF.
Lägenheten ligger perfekt i lugnt område. Mycket nära till spårvagn och bussar. Ligger i gaydistriktet Castro med många restauranger och barer, ändå lugnt. Rummet hade allt man kan begära. Vi åt frukost på rummet för att spara några dollar. Värdarna hade gett oss utmärkta instruktioner så vi klarade oss själva. Vi tyckte detta var ytterst prisvärt boende i en stad som är dyr. Var beredd på att värdfamiljen vaknar senast 8 på morgonen och att barnen hörs. Det störde oss inte. Betyg 9 av 10!
This was a fantastic place to stay. A safe and quiet street, lots of space, very clean inside with lots of things to make the trip easier/more convenient (umbrella, ironing board, towels, shampoo/conditioner/soap etc, ear plugs if needed, tv, kitchen with all things needed). Todd was also incredibly helpful. My first night there, I couldn't figure out the window latch and he was responsive (immediately offered to drop in to take a look) and quickly able to fix it! Definitely recommended.
We stayed for two weeks and had a nice visit here. The location is very good and Todd was very helpful if we needed anything. We had lunch/dinner in the apt and it is a bit dark. There is a garden but we are not permitted to used. There is no window facing the street. But if you don't use the kitchen it is a very nice place. It is clean and wellplanned for two people.
The studio is well located - very close to bart and other public transportation options - and super clean. The hosts are very friendly and communicative. They live upstairs wuth small children but the noise was far less than I expected. Highly recommended!
Great location and comfortable place. As indicated on the listing page, there's occasionally some noise from upstairs, but it wasn't as noticeable as I expected. Hosts were helpful about late check-in, etc.
My girflfriend and I loved staying in Todd & Amy's apartment! After our stay we honestly couldn't see that we would have wanted to stay anywhere else in San Francisco.
Having stayed in several airbnb apartments earlier we could tell that we weren't their first guests as they really had planned for everything. Furthermore they answered any questions immediately and helped us out with any particular requests that we had.
We biked around everywhere in SF so the possibility of storing our bikes in the hallway leading to the apartment really helped us out.
Can't wait until we come back to SF so that we can stay with Tood and Amy again!
