About this listing

Airy bedroom with a double (full) bed, closet space and private bathroom in charming 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom 1890’s Victorian cottage. Located on a safe, friendly street with historic San Francisco charm.

The space

Relax after a hard day of sightseeing (or work) with kitchen, laundry, internet (the essentials!) handy and available. Cable TV and wireless internet connection are provided.

The bed has fresh linens and blankets and the private bath has white fluffy towels with an assortment of travel necessities.

While we do not smoke, smoking is OK outside (only) and dogs are considered.

Guest access

Shared space includes a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and gas stove, dining room/desk space, and an outside deck. Note: self serve or full service laundry and drycleaning are one block away.

Interaction with guests

My partner and I are long time San Francisco residents and live with a friendly 12 lb dog. We can toss you a key and wish you well or help you map an "insider" tour de force.

The accommodation is relaxed and comfortable: the house is 2 story and we reside in the lower level. Your room and bath share the upper level with our common areas.

While we're often on the move with busy lives (the dog included!) - we thoroughly enjoy hosting Airbnb guests and want you to enjoy a comfortable visit.

Note: the dog is a hypoallergenic breed. She has hair (and doesn't shed fur) so she's great for allergy-prone guests.

Other things to note

Check-in timing: We're often super flexible on timing! Please communicate clearly and coordinate closely with us though. It's necessary to provide you a pleasant welcome.

Bruce and Mo were fantastic hosts, attentive but never intrusive! I felt very welcome into their home. The bedroom and private bath are upstairs with the kitchen, which you also have access to. Everything is very clean and the bed is comfortable! I loved their miniature schnauzer, Roxy, who is delightful and super friendly. I am looking forward to my next stay.

A wonderful home away from home in San Francisco. Great hospitality, location and hosts! Will be staying here when I return to San Francisco.

Great place on the edges of Castro. Walk is less that 10 mins from major transportation. Beautiful home with clean and comfy room. I was treated like one of the family. Bruce, Mo and Roxy were all lovely to me. I would definitely stay again!

Had a great stay with Bruce and his partner. Location is fantastic and within 8mins walking distance to Castro's attractions. I definitely recommend them to other Airbnb travelers, if they are looking for a nice, clean and well-located budget stay.

Bruce and Mo were fantastic hosts. Their house is clean and beautiful and located in a quiet area in the Castro, near shops and restaurants and the metro. Their little dog, roxy, is nice

The Castro Cottage was the perfect stay. I stayed there for a week and couldn't have been happier. The location was perfect, easily accessible with the Muni bus and metro systems as well as a short walk to downtown Castro. Mo and Bruce were the perfect hosts; everyday Mo would make sure to pop up and chat or leaving me messages. It was very homely, feeling like I was staying with people I knew really well. Roxy the dog was a delight to be around, she is a very happy dog and loves interactions. Cant recommend this place enough. I have been to SF multiple times and this is by far the best stay.

Wonderful spot to stay in SF. Close to public transport and for walking around. Hosts where wonderful. Should I return to SF I hope they are still available as my accomodation.
