Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Wonderful, private apartment in the heart of the Castro's action, yet incredible quiet and peaceful. Lot of amenities and the beds were very comfortable. Clean, and a good value for the neighborhood. Lots of public transit options. Check-in/check out was exceptionally easy and Chas was great at staying in touch and making sure that I had everything that I needed. The courtyard just outside the studio was lovely. Highly recommended.

    Warm, cosy and safe.

  • I absolutely enjoyed staying in this cozy, yet tastefully decorated studio in the heart of the Castro. The muni system which provided access to all the essential San Francisco locations was a quick 2 minute walk.The access to the apartment is situated behind another residence which was safe, secure and private. The amenities were basic (microwave, mini fridge, wifi, bath towels and a few toiletries) but added a convenient touch. The neighborhood is both charming, friendly and eccentric all rolled into one. I would definitely stay here again over a hotel. The price was right and transportation from the airport is cheap and easy if you arrange a shared van service to drop-off/pick-up from the nearby Beck's Motor Lodge on Market Street (a 5 minute walk). I did not have a car during my stay, but I can see how parking could be an issue considering the residential parking restrictions. Two thumbs up and I would definitely recommend.

  • Chas' apartment was very centrally located near all the sites in the Castro and close to public transit. The space is small, but very functional, we enjoyed our stay here.

  • The studio was great! The location is perfect, I loved the neighborhood.

  • Great location, walking distance from cafés, restaurants and nightlife. In a really cute area with lots of San Francisco charm. The studio is located in a back house on the ground floor. It's a private room with a bathroom and a private entrance. No kitchen. Although I didn't see cat hair anywhere(place is clean and well put together), I did have bad allergies while I was there, and there are cats in the apartment above, so bring your allergy meds if that's an issue for you. Parking is really bad, so plan on walking or using public transportation. Other than that, you can't beat the location, privacy and charm. Makes you want to sell everything and move to the city by the bay!

  • Chas was a great host - very quick to respond, amenable and friendly. The studio has everything you need and is brilliantly located for the bars, restaurants and cafes of The Castro and The Mission. Would definitely recommend.

    February 2014
  • Had a fantastic stay in this nice, tucked away and quiet studio. Chas is a great host, very friendly and helpful. Absolute recommendation.

    February 2014
  • The Apartment despite the size was very roomy. Checking in was a breeze as Chas had detailed instructions on how to get into the apartment and even printed off Apartment Rules. However, I did not get to see Chas at all, sadly. If you're looking for a great place to stay in the heart of San Francisco, This is the place.

We live in San Francisco and spend time in New York as well. We also have another place in Northern California in the country we spend time at. I'm a private pilot and Paul is quite an accomplished ceramicist, though he does non-profit management consulting by profession. I run a retreat center ((email hidden)) and am a computer consultant some of the time and real estate investor other times. We have two cats who stay at our house here in San Francisco. They are very affectionate and easy to care for.
