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.
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.
We had an amazing time while staying with Katie & Chris!!! They are some of the most sweet, welcoming, fun and interesting people we've met in our travels!
They gave us great recommendations on places to see and things to do in the area. The apartment is spacious and clean, beautifully decorated and had amazing view. Our room was really nice too and the bed was exceptionally comfortable!
Would love to stay here again!
Chris and Katie made me feel very welcome. They made it clear that I could use the living room (in the picture) and the kitchen whenever I wanted. They were quick to help when I had any questions or requests about the room, or getting around SF. The room was clean, comfortable, and felt private. The location was an easy 10-minute walk to nearby public transportation (Castro Muni station).
Such a great experience. Beautiful home, great location...w even better hosts! Would absolutely recommend staying with Katie & Chris. You will not be disappointed. We felt right at home. Best SF experience by far.
Katie and Chris were warm and friendly hosts. They made sure our access to the house was easy even though they were away themselves upon our arrival and offered advice about San Francisco during our stay. The house is clean, charming and feels like you are living the San Francisco life while staying there. It is centrally located in the vibrant Castro district (to note it is on a main street but this was not a problem for us). A great welcoming stay!

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.
