Our inviting home has the look and feel of San Francisco. Hardwood floors and original molding are among the small touches that give it the classic feel that tells city dwellers they're home. Blocks from the Castro MUNI, you can walk most anywhere.
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.
Guests will share our kitchen, living room, and bathroom with us. Smoking is only permitted outside, either in the yard or on the landing, which provides a nice view. We are calm and easygoing people. Parking is difficult in San Francisco. If you bring a car, you might want to leave your car as you go around the city. Our block is a high traffic block and drivers drive too fast, so its better to park above us near Danvers Street. There is street cleaning from 12-2 on Fridays so you must move your car to the other side of the street on this day. Across the street, street cleaning is Wednesday from 12-2. Also, you must curb your tires as we are on a hill. This means that you must turn your wheels so that the car would roll towards the curb rather than the street were it's brakes to fail. Failure to do so is a ticketable offense. Please feel free to comment and help us improve the stay for yourself and others.
Katie and Chris were both so welcoming and made us feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door! They invited us to use whatever we needed in the kitchen including snacks, coffee, tea, etc. We didn't see them a whole lot as we were off exploring most of the time (and napping when we weren't) but we sincerely enjoyed the time we had talking to them. Great place and awesome location. We would definitely stay with them again!
Super flexible and accommodating. Great view and location, they offered up some great tips for our drive down the coast.
Chris and Katie were very helpful, beautiful place and view. The neighborhood had parking was easy to get in/out of town and within walking distance of tons (TONS!) of stuff.
10/10 would stay (website hidden) the best view in the house is in the bathroom.
Perfect place to stay in San Francisco. The location was great! Easy to get around to most places in SF either by car (we didn't have any problems finding parking close by the whole weekend) or public transit. Lots of great places to eat within walking distance. We did not see Katie and Chris much during our stay but both were super nice and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
We spent two nights at Katie & Chris's home.
The place is simply beautiful, very neat and fun to be around.
Our room was great, nice and cozy. Each window in the house is facing some amazing San Fran view or skyline.
Katie & Chris were very friendly, and Chris even made sure we park our car accoriding to the local rules. Very helpful.
The flat is very well located with walking distance to good restaurants and cool places to hang out.
We definitely recommend staying there.
Très bel appartement avec beaucoup de style. La rue est un peu bruyante mais Katie et Chris m'avaient tenu au courant, et finalement ce n'est pas si gênant. L'emplacement est très intéressant, proche de la station de métro Castro qui permet de se rendre très facilement en centre ville de San Francisco. Relativement proche, aussi, du Golden Gate Park, ce qui est très appréciable si vous aimez courir !
Katie et Chris sont très gentils et vivent une vie calme. Il est très agréable d'être dans leur appartement. Ils sont très accueillants, même si j'aurais aimé échanger davantage avec eux - l'occasion ne s'est pas présentée hélas. La cuisine, la salle de bains et le salon sont partagés, ce qui ne pose pas de soucis. Travaillant de chez lui, Chris est souvent présent et disponible en cas de problème.
Katie and Chris were perfect hosts! Their authentic SF home was a treat to stay in and was very conveniently located (less than a 5 minute walk to The Castro!) Katie and Chris are both very polite and made sure we had everything we needed. We would absolutely stay here again next time we are in town.

Katie is in the music industry, so she has an extensive knowledge of the local music scene and venues. Chris is a writer and teacher, so he has an extensive knowledge of everything else.
