About this listing
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. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed while the other has an eastern king tempurpedic. 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 washing machine. Parking is plentiful within a block. There is one bathroom.
My colleagues and I really enjoyed staying at Katie and Chris's. The apartment is in a great part of town, close to a lot of good restaurants and public transit, but quiet too. The view out the back windows are beautiful, and the home up Twin Peaks is not nearly as difficult as it looks from below. Communication was always prompt, check in and out were painless, and the house was in good order. I would recommend the place.
Katie and Chris's place was just as shown. It was a fantastic location for SF Pride. They were lovely and attentive. There was enough room to fit the three of us comfortably. We would stay here again!
Great apartment full of character and charm. stunning views. great neighbourhood. spacious enough for six. very comfortable beds. eclectic vinyl collection. BUT NO HOT WATER. FOR 4 DAYS. definitely not worth the price given this major flaw. as such, none of us would consider staying here again.
Chris made our stay easy and care free, answered questions and allowed us to check in and out on our unpredictable schedule. We never met in person but all we needed was easy to find. The beds were comfortable, even the mattress he set up in the office for the third bed, and the bedding was plush and clean. Loved the comforter!
I would gladly rent this place again, though I would refrain from bringing a German quality control engineer with me. He immediately noticed some open wiring in the bathroom and moldy wood paneling around the tub as well as the questionable construction of the wooden deck. I still sat out there to enjoy the fabulous view of the city! Overall the place is over 100 years old, so it's got historic charm and with it some dings that are part of the bargain I think.
The neighborhood is colorful as one would expect and groceries and restaurants are easy to get to on foot. The main bedroom out back is quiet, the smaller one faces Market and has some traffic noise, easily countered with earplugs or beer.
Chris and Kate made my friends and I feel entirely welcomed! They accommodated our late/early check in/out times, which relieved lots of stress for us. Their apartment looks exactly like the photos on the profile. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are spacious, and the views are breathtaking. The neighborhood is located a few walking blocks from the Castro. I recommend this place!
Katie and Chris's appartment was delightful. And bigger than we had imagined. It really felt like a home away from home. Great neighborhood, awesome view and a special vibe. Thank you!
Another amazing stay. Katie and Chirs are great hosts, and the apartment was fantastic. Great communication and perfect for a weekend stay. I look forward to staying at their place again.
