This is one of the most beautiful and charming neighborhoods of San Francisco called Duboce Triangle and it is next to Castro/Haight valley. You will be sharing the apt with me.

I will NOT accept reservations from your siblings, family or friends on your behalf. Like guests who clean up and fold sheets after themselves before leaving.

The bathroom is shared for the apt by guests and me. Also many cafes next door for bkfst. There is a bakery close by and you can get some bkst food if you wish.
Public Transportation Friendly-
The apt is accessible from the SFO and OAK airports by train. You take the BART train at SFO Intl terminal or OAK to Civic center station in the San Francisco city and switch to Muni subway lines for 3 stations hop to Castro Muni and walk up to my place. There is public transportation to all major locations in the city from my place. Two bus lines and 6 other muni subway lines near the house. I will send you a pdf document with directions once you book the place. Parking is available and free on the street between 7pm to 10am on weekdays and on weekends from 7pm on friday through 10am on Monday. There are always few spots available on the street.
The apt is on the quieter side of castro st but I do recommend that you bring ear plugs if you are super noise sensitive just in case. Apartment is on Castro street where it can be busy in the morning. Not too loud but could be sensitive for some.
I will NOT accept your request if you dont have your picture in the profile. I want to know who I am inviting home. Also, please respond with when you plan to arrive and when you plan to leave timewise on the date of request to ensure that I can work with you on the keys.
I will provide extra keys once you check in..
A great little space in a stellar area. Ajay was a wonderful host — welcoming, considerate, sophisticated, knowledgable, passionate. I hope to be back!
Great Host-- Ajay was very helpful with directions and parking options for me. His place was very comfortable for my night's stay and super close to where I needed to be the next day. Ajay is a warm and lovely host and I enjoyed meeting him and sharing breakfast in the morning. I loved the shower too!
Staying at Ajay's was amazing. I definitely feel as though my trip to San Francisco was enhanced by staying at Ajay's accommodations. His apartment is in a great location with tons of things to do within walking distance or through public transportation. When I return to San Francisco I will definitely book again!
Ajay was a wonderful host, and took care of me as a guest very well. He sent directions how to get to his house from the airport which were easy to follow, and he took the time to show his apt and interesting collection, and to chat. He was also helpful suggesting a nice route for running, and I gladly accepted his advice to visit the Jewish Museum. The apt. had everything I needed, including for example wifi. And there's of course the excellent location! The Castro is a vibrant area, and convenient if you go by public transportation. I would certainly recommend staying at Ajay's apartment.
Staying at Ajays place was perfect for me. He is a splendid host and takes amazingly good care. Also he has plenty of insights in the local culture - particularly food, art, design and business. Very recommended.
I had a great time in SF! Ajay is really cool dude and gives you really good advises how to spend your time traveling in SF. His apartment is nice decorated and i felt really comfortable when i spent my time there. Ajay will make sure that you will miss nothing and feel really comfortable. His apartment is also in a nice and safe area and good connected to the bus and the metro station.
Ajay is a very kind and friendly host. He helped me with my many questions about San Francisco and its transport, and also helped me locate shops , museums, bike rental places etc. When I'd left my phone in his apartment he was very kind and helpful and made an arrangement to meet me and return it to me. His flat is colorful and friendly and in a beautiful part of town, well connected with bus, Muni train, and near the Castro stop of the F-line which brings you to downtown and the piers.
Ajay was the consummate host! He is very knowledgeable about the local area and gave me some great tips.
I would certainly stay with Ajay again, he is a true gentleman.
Really Nice apartment!
I stayed there one night with my boyfriend and it was perfect. Great location too. Close to touristic areas of Sf
I had a very comfortable stay at Ajay's. His place is clean and the location is perfect. Ajay is friendly, generous and knows the area really well. Make sure to ask him for suggestions on places to eat or where to go shopping. Definitely recommend him
