Private 2 bedroom section of a single family house located with sweeping views of San Francisco. Access is through a separate entrance on a private deck. Space consists of a spacious and cozy living room complete with a gas fireplace, large HD TV with satellite service and a DVR. Newly remodeled bathroom. The first bedroom consists of a queen size bed, dresser, nightstand and large closet. There is a sofa sleeper in the living room area as well. Fast WI-FI is available. The second bedroom consists of a newly installed queen size bed and a small closet. The apartment is probably best suited for 4 persons or less, but it can accommodate 6 persons with 2 persons sleeping on the sofa sleeper. There is just the one bathroom, so getting ready in the morning might be a challenge for more than 4 persons.
We are thrilled to announce that the kitchen is now fully functional as of May 6, 2013. The appliances, cabinetry, flooring and dining table which seats 4 are all brand new and ready for your enjoyment. There are a few minor cosmetic touches that need to be completed, but by no means affect the functionality.
The house is centrally located in the heart of San Francisco. There is convenient easy access to the 33 Muni Bus, which stops about a 5-minute walk from the house and allows you to connect to the subways, buses and street cars all on one fare . There also are no parking issues whatsoever as the neighborhood has a guest parking area about 30 yards from the house which can easily accommodate 6 cars. The Castro neighborhood is within sight and walking distance (uphill on the way back to the house).
As the main part of the house is above the rental space, you may infrequently hear normal household living noises during your stay. However, we are very respectful and cognizant of the fact that guests will be living below and would make every effort to keep the noise to a minimum.
Although there are no laundry facilities in the rental apartment, we are happy to let guests use our laundry facilites in the main portion of the house for stays of one week or longer.

Our stay with Bob and Gregg was everything I expected and more. Pre-stay communication was prompt and addressed all of my specific issues. We didn't get to meet Bob, but Gregg was a very pleasant and helpful host.
We originally picked this accommodation because it is located near our son's apartment. The bonus was how spacious and well-appointed the home is. Everything is clean, updated and first class. We especially loved the big TV, the gas fireplace and the large shower. And then of course the views - spectacular from every room. Also the available extra parking is a huge bonus that we didn't really appreciate until we arrived. We would definitely like to stay here again!
Bob and Greg,
We want to let you both know how much we ‘loved’ your home. We for sure have found our new ‘home away from home’. It was almost perfect, the view is outstanding, you have furnished everything with first class items, including brand name items like paper towels, toilet paper, condiments, Kleenex, hand soap, dish soap, body wash, etc. Basically nothing was actually needed. The kitchen is really nice with all the cooking equipment one could want; chef style gas range, ice maker that puts out a lot of ice, toaster oven for our morning bagels, micro-wave, and dishwasher…oh yes, the view while in the kitchen is unparalleled. Another real plus is the Dish TV and recorder; you might want to highlight that info on your website. We can’t overlook the parking; always available and only steps from the house…very important to those of us who use a car. It was a little cool to really utilize the deck but in warmer weather I can’t imagine a more serene setting than sitting outside looking over the entire bay, city, Alcatraz, and bay bridge while sipping a glass of California wine…damn, we already want to go back.
Again, thank you for sharing you beautiful home with us and we enjoyed meeting both of you. We’ll be in touch about setting up our next visit in your home.

What's to say abour our stay in Bob & Gregg's apartment?
First of course the apartment itself: a living room, a bedroom, a kitchen, a bedroom, a huge terasse - all with an absolute breath-taking view over San Francisco. We never had a view like this with a breakfast coffee in bed - absolute overwhelming. But this is not everything. The appartment is perfectly clean with all you need, perfect kitchenware, comfortable beds and bathroom.
And at the top - Gregg and Bob are perfect hosts. All queries we had in preparing our visit or during the stay were answered immediately . It was really a pleasure to stay.
All in all this appartment is highly recommended. This house is the reason, that airbnb was founded. Congrets and thanks. We spend 5 days celebrating new year 2014 in this house and will never forget.
Ohhh the view. They could pitch a tent up there to stay in and it would still be worth the price. Bob and Gregg's apartment is warm and comfortable. It is stocked well with the essentials and everything (TV, coffee maker, etc.) is user friendly. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. Designated parking was the cherry on top. Thank you gentlemen, we had a wonderful time.
We had a great time in San Francisco. Gregg & Bob were gracious, attentive and very helpful. They made sure everything is clear and to our satisfaction.
The place is impeccably clean and well equipped - great beds, nice kitchen and lots of space. The view is breathtaking (the photos don't do it justice!) and sitting outside in the air is awesome, even if it gets a little chilly.
Location is great too - 5 minutes drive from Haight street or Castro.
Can not go wrong with this place - will definitely try to book again next time we're in town.
We have had two lovely stay with a weekend in between in the most beautiful place - with the most amazing views in SF.
The apartment worked perfectly. The beds were soft and wonderful to sleep in. We could wake up to the coolest view of SF from the bed. Our daughter greatly on ice machines and the fireplace was lit every evening and we appreciated that everything worked.
We had some wonderful and helping hosts both before and during our stay were easy and flexible to communicate with. We were so happy to be able to borrow washing facilities in the last week - as our hosts in great trust made available, though they themselves were not home.
Location is super - we could walk or take the bus down to the beautiful Castro. From Castro were muni, and f-street car toward downtown square. And there was a parking space close to the house.
We'd love to rent the apartment again and would recommend it to anyone to rent it.
Bob and Gregg are by far one of the best hosts I have ever had. Their warmth, generosity, and kindness is overwhelming, and I can't thank them enough for their help and flexibility.
I had initially requested for a late check-out, as my sister and her friend had a midnight flight to catch back home. Gregg, whom I corresponded with via AirBnB, was generous enough to allow the extension and block out the day, without any extra cost. Unfortunately, a new guest had booked on the day that was meant to be blocked out, but Gregg immediately reached out to me to try to remedy the situation. He kindly offered to sign my sister and her friend in to the United Airways lounge, or allow us to rescind our booking at no extra charge. Bob was there to receive us and he made sure all our needs and necessities were met. The house was beautifully furnished, and had a view that was truly mesmerizing.
From our experience with Bob and Gregg, they are truly special hosts, as their warm and friendly demeanour, coupled with their unwavering kindness, made us feel right at home and grateful to have a chance to experience their accommodation. They ensured that we were well taken care of and comfortable, as they made sure everything was settled and up to their high standards for their guests to enjoy.
I must say, it was a total privilege for me to have stayed in their beautiful home. Guests that wish to experience not only the sights of San Francisco, but San Franciscan hospitality, need only to find Gregg and Bob, to have a peaceful, beautiful, picture-perfect, and spectacular time they could ever have. I send my heartfelt gratitude, and wish them nothing but the best, and will always be deeply thankful for all their help and impeccable hospitality for our stay.
Shun, thanks for the kind words. I frankly blushed a bit with the overly kind things you said in your review. I'm just glad that we could make your trip enjoyable and facilitate the stay at the United Club for your sister and friend. Please let us know when you can return; of course we would love to have you stay in our home again.
My husband and I just returned from a weekend at Bob and Greg's. It is, hands down, the best place to stay in San Francisco! The bus to the city is at the bottom of the hill (with city views to die for!), so you kind of forget that you're walking uphill :)
We went for a jog one morning around the neighborhood (and I hate jogging) and before I even realized it, we'd done 2.5 miles! It's just that beautiful in the Twin Peaks neighborhood.
The apartment is immaculately clean, very private, and so very comfortable. I was really sad to leave, and I can't wait for our next visit back. We know exactly where we'll be staying!
Thank you so much, Bob and Greg for hosting us!
Oliver & Minhee.
Minhee & Oliver, so very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our home. That is all we need to hear from our guests to make us feel that we are doing the best thing by sharing our home with others. Please let us know when you are able to return to San Francisco; you know you have a place to welcome you back.
This place was fantastic. The view from every room was overlooking the city and the bay. The unit was clean, well maintained and very nicely stocked (they even bought us a wide variety of breakfast foods. One particularly nice feature is that the bedrooms were at opposite ends of the house.
Parking our rental car was easy--the space was reserved for guests. Bob and Gregg were great hosts. They are available when needed, but gave us our privacy as well. We would highly recommend this rental!!!
Thanks Bob & Gregg for a wonderful experience in SFO
Thanks Jan for the nice review. Our only hope is that our guests feel at home in our home and are able to take advantage of the sights in our great city. We enjoyed meeting you, your sons and your friend. And thank you for leaving the apartment in such great shape upon your departure. Please consider us for a future visit.
Bob & Gregg were wonderful hosts. The apartment worked out wonderful. The view is to good for words, we just loved looking out over the city at night with all the twinkling lights. Both beds were comfortable and the bedrooms are far apart so they are very private Fully equipped kitchen with coffee/tea available for your use. We mastered the transit system and used it every day with no challenges to get downtown. Stop is just a few blocks from the apartment. GREAT PLACE TO STAY. Will use them again next time we are in town.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
