About this listing
Stay in a classic Edwardian flat in the heart of the Castro District! We are two dads in our early 40's with 2 children, ages 11 and 13 who live in this beautiful top-floor Castro St. apartment.
The Garden Lovers Room has a Queen bed with Memory Foam Mattress that guests love. This is our 13-year-old daughter's bedroom, which we rent out when she is out of town.
We'd love to host you in our beautiful 4-bedroom, 1500 square foot, top floor Edwardian apartment.
While our address is on Castro Street and is just a few doors down from where Harvey Milk lived and worked (where the movie was filmed), it is up a small hill that allows us to be central, but quiet.
The Garden Lovers rooms is in the back of the house and faces the garden with views of downtown. The Room has a new Queen memory foam bed in it and a large closet. Next to it is a great room for kids to stay in or two friends with two twin-beds and a chalkboard wall to draw on. On the other side of the flat is the Cool Blue Master Bedroom overlooking Castro Street.
Available for shared use:
- Dining area with seating up to 10
- Well appointed kitchen for the serious (or not) cook
- Modern washer and dryer in unit
- One and a half baths
Interaction with guests
We are a family of 4, and we rent out this room when one (or more) of us is out of town. So you will be sharing the common space with others, possibly including the kids (ages 11 and 13) and a dad.

Located on Castro Street between 19th and 20th Streets. Ours is a residential block, just two blocks from the center of the famed Castro District and its stores, restaurants, nightlife, grocery and 24-hr drug store, playground, and Muni underground train station. We're 3 blocks from Dolores Park, which is the best place to enjoy a sunny day in the city.
The world-renowned Castro district is famous for Harvey Milk and Gay nightlife. But the locals know it as the heart of the city, situated at the perfect center. More than a dozen major transit lines run through in every direction, making the entire city an arms reach away. Some of the City's best restaurants, wine bars, parks, bakeries, murals and people watching are here.
