But its worth it,

Muni Bus system: If you intend to ride the cable cars, then it is cheaper to buy a bus pass, the bus fares are $2 and the cable cars are $6 so it’s better value to get a bus pass. The passes are for consecutive days.

  • Staying in Pauls Twin Peaks appartment was a Great experience. Everything was very pleasant and easy, starting with the friendly e-mail from Paul confirming our booking, and giving directions for Check-in. The comprehensive suggestions for dining, shopping, sight-seeing were very helpfull. We saved more than 30$ on our shopping at Safeway, using Pauls rebate Club Card!
    I can confirm everything stated in the description for this Great Location.

  • I stayed here at Paul's listing in Twin Peaks with 4 other adult friends, and it was much more than enough. Only a short drive down the hill to the Castro district (Ike's Sandwiches are the best!) and an even shorter drive up the hill to the top of Twin Peaks. Paul was very accommodating and an extremely nice guy. His place is very clean and spacious, and it had everything we needed and more. Thanks, Paul!

  • Access was clearly communicated and easily followed and carred out. The apartment was clean and well presented and in a great location. Details of suggested activities were clearly laid out and communication with Paul was good.We had a most enjoyable stay.

    April 2013
  • Pauls place was absolutley perfect! the location was great, the view was incredible and the value was excellent! Prior to my trip the follow up information from Paul (not excpecting Paul to meet me) was impressive as it was very detailed making my arrival very much stress free. I was pleased to find further detailed instructions and recomendations in the apartment as well as WIFI and a full size laptop on site. I would certainaly recommend anyone consider this stay for its great location, great veiws and professional host.

  • What a wonderful place. Minutes away from Noe Valley and much of the best of San Franciso. Paul's apartment has everything you need plus a breathtaking view.

    March 2013
  • Our travel group included our 2 small kids and their grandma, so Paul's rental was the perfect place to give everyone their own space. Perfect location, easy parking, and a great overall experience.

    Wake up to a beautiful view, take a shower in a clean and comfortable bathroom, make your own breakfast/coffee, then go see everything that San Francisco has to offer.

    The rental was so great that we never actually had to bother Paul during our stay. Getting into the rental, setting up the beds, using the tv and internet, and checking out were all perfectly documented.

    I really hope that Paul's rental will be available again the next time we come to San Francisco!

  • Our stay at Paul's place at Twin Peaks was wonderful. I personally did not meet Paul as my husband and I arrived late but the other couple we were traveling with checked in and said he was very helpful and made them feel welcome. If we had not stayed there, we may have missed several interesting and fun places in San Francisco recommended by Paul. And the view from the apt was beautiful. We felt right at home. I highly recommend Paul as a host.
