The Space

Classic San Francisco top floor flat with stunning views of the city, San Francisco Bay, and the Berkeley Hills. 5 rooms include a living room, office, eat-in kitchen, and two bedrooms. A small back landing with great views and a shared yard are great when the weather's fine. Four blocks from Castro and Market, which boasts the historic Castro theater, numerous great restaurants and bars, and multiple MUNI lines making all of the city very accessible. Or stay in the Castro!
Dolores Park and the Mission are both walking distance from the apartment as are Hayes Valley and the Lower Haight.
We often walk to Kite Hill or Corona Heights, both within 10 minutes, for jaw-dropping views of the city and the bay.
We offer free wi-fi, cable tv with all of the movie channels, and a washer/ dryer. Parking is plentiful within a block (Please see house rules for parking advice. Don't get a ticket!). There is one bathroom to share with us.

  • I had an absolutely lovely stay with Katie and Chris! Their home is beautiful and they are some of the nicest hosts you will come across. Lots of charm to the Victorian and it's very clean, the kitchen is great, bed is comfortable, and it's not too long of a walk down to the heart of the Castro (and lots of public transportation from there). I would happily stay here again

  • This is a great apartment, just as described. I was only in town for a few nights, and it was just what I needed. It was comfortable, clean, with interesting books, photographs, and art work. I wish I'd been able to talk with Chris and Katie more--they seem like such interesting people. They were there to meet me and communication was easy. They made me some nice strong coffee in the morning, which I really appreciated since I need a cup of coffee to make coffee. There's a bit of street noise outside the room, but the bed was super comfy so I slept very well. Nice views from the hill. Recommended.

  • My two friends and I had a wonderful time at Katie & Chris' beautiful Victorian home above the castro/mission district. Their house is exactly as it appears in the photos - spacious, light and homely. From the moment Chris welcomed us at their door and helped up with our bags, to Katie giving us tips about eating and adventuring locally, they were professional and hospitable.

    Katie & Chris are the cream of the Air Bnb crop. They consistently went out of their way to accommodate us and make us feel at home and I can't recommend them as hosts more. The location was fantastic for us, very close to the bus line and a quick walk to adventure, eat and drink around the castro and mission districts I hope our path cross again in the future!

  • Katie and Chris are very kind hosts. I had no trouble finding parking and the location is very convenient. They were very thoughtful in the way the set up the room. Plenty of space to hang my clothes on a rack with shelves so it didn't feel like I was living out of a suitcase. There were plenty of towels at my disposal even though I only used one it's nice to know they are handy. They shared their kitchen and fridge space and helped me find a market nearby. Every interaction with them was very nice. Overall, the room is a great value for anyone looking to stay in the Castro.

  • Katie and Chris are so nice and easy going! Always try to help and very respectful to your privacy! Their house are super clean and very beautiful, with an AWSOME view of the city! The most important is the F line is just 5 minuts walk! Me and my wife really enjoyed our stay in their place! I would highly recommend Katie and Chris's place for your trip to S.F.!

  • Excellent communication and Katie and Chris are very interesting, kind people - thoughtfully offered me coffee in the morning. Their apartment is in a terrific location and despite being above a key street, I found no issues with street noise at all. The walk up from the MUNI station on Castro is actually not a big deal at all.

  • Katie and Chris were friendly, accommodating and easy-going. My friend and I enjoyed staying at their charming Victorian-style place, which had a great view from their balcony. Our room had yellow walls and great natural lighting that brightened our stay. The house is central located and we found everything easily accessible by public transit and walking. We had a late afternoon flight and Katie and Chris let us leave our luggage at their place for a few hours, which was much appreciated!

  • This is a a long overdue review! Me and my friend were staying at Katie and Chris' place - our first bnb experience - and it was awesome! Chris was there for our check in and was very kind to offer help to to carry our overweight luggage. Katie was nice to provide us with some local tips :) We love the location, quiet and very peaceful neighbourhood with nice view and public transportation is accessible within 6-10 mins walk. In addition, there are some nice eateries within the neighbourhood. They have quite a stunning view from their kitchen. Wished we could spend a few more days in San Francisco! We will recommend Katie and Chris to be your hosts!
