Guest Comment (More below):
Our son found us this spotless, tastefully decorated flat (just a few blocks away from his tiny apartment),with all the comforts of home. The view was amazing. We walked down to the Golden Gate Park, a neigborhood market, the Castro station and Buena Vista Park. We enjoyed the early am antics of a black and white cat visiting the rooftops and balancing on tiny rails. It's the perfect place for those want a little space in the center of San Francisco, from which to experience its treasures.

About the Flat:
Tucked into the hill between the Castro & the Haight, this private getaway is walking distance to transportion & a wide array of restaurants, cafes, gourmet food stores, & shopping. Near the center of the city, this neighborhood has the most favorable weather in San Francisco.

The flat is clean, stylish & has magnificent sweeping views from Twin Peaks to the Bay. There is easy street parking & an inviting backyard where you can relax and experience the authentic charm of the real San Francisco. A bus stop is at the top of the street or you can walk down to the Castro streetcar that goes to the financial district, Union Square, Embarcadero, and Fisherman’s Wharf. Please read our reviews to see how we pay attention to every guest detail: Free WiFi, laundry room, cableTV, coffee & more.

Close to everything in San Francisco: The flat is a short walk to grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, dance clubs, shopping and much more. You can walk to MUNI/Subway lines K, L, T and M which take you downtown, CalTrains and all the museums. The above ground F Line Cable Car goes to Fisherman's Wharf. Non-permit street parking is available in the neighborhood. And, the views are amazing - on top of the hill overlooking Eureka Vally and Twin Peaks. We love our guests and take care to ensure they have a wonderfully comfortable and non-stressful experience. Please feel free to cal us with any question you may have.

Don't look any further - rent this flat.
We have zero complaints about this property and the people who rent it to vacationers.

The location is perfect - a quick walk to Castro & Market - from there, enjoy the neighbourhood, or grab a train, cab or bus to see the rest of the city. The view - stunning. We watched the fog roll in and out over the hills and homes.

Romanus and Keith - sweet guys! Communication was great, the welcome note was great touch :)! The flat - was very clean and has everything you need and more! Would recommend to everyone!!

Guest Comment:
Perfect!! The flat is very unique, and not only is the view from the picture window spectacular, but the location can't be beat! The "F" street car is a short walk from the flat and from there the street car will take you all the way to Fisherman's Wharf or hop off at any interesting spot along the way!

Also within walking distance of the flat are an array of shops and restaurants in the Castro. Our favorite was Harvey's - American cuisine and very good. Another notable restaurant was Cafe Flore' - excellent atmosphere and food was good.

We were in San Francisco for the America's Cup races in The Bay and couldn't have found a better place to stay and come “home“ to in the evening! I highly recommend this property and hope to return on our next visit to San Francisco!

The owner of the property provided information on the closest grocery stores, buses (a car is not necessary for this area) and was only a call or text away if needed.

Our sincerest thanks for a very memorable vacation!

Guest Comment:
We arrived after an exhausting 12 hour long flight and once we entered the flat, we felt immediately at home and knew it would be a perfect holiday. We have been to SFO already many times and stayed at various places, but this place topped everything and was simply the best !!!

Everything about the listings description proved to be absolutely true and even better than one can imagine.

The place was not only very clean and well looked after, but proved to be the perfect location for our holiday. Everything is within walking distance (shops, restaurants, food stores etc.) as well as close to public transport (MUNI). We even found a parking lot for our rented car close to the flat (no fee or parking permit needed, and that is exceptionell for SFO).

The flat itself was very spacious and offers not only a spectacular and stunning view to the city, Twin Peaks and part of the bay, but has also a very nice outdoor patio. WIFI worked also very well, so it was easy to stay in touch with friends and family at home.

The owner provided extremely good service and also a nice little brochure with lot´s of useful tipps, hints and helpful informations about neighbourhood etc. Using of the on-site complimentary laundry facility was also very easy and superb.

We can only highly recommend this charming place and no doubt, if we come to SFO again some time, we would certainly stay there again.

The only thing we have to complain: there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO COMPLAIN :-)))

Thank you !!! We will come again !!!

Perfect San Francisco pied-a-terre!

Charming and super-clean. Lovely views from great central location. Great bed and linens; well-equiped kitchen. Owner couldn't be nicer. Thanks so much, we'll be back.

Guest Access

The entire flat with a bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen, dining area, living room, cable television, and fantastic VIEWS. Also a washer.dryer and yard with fantastic views - great to sip wine and have some great cheese. Private entrace makes this flat quite special.

Interaction with Guests

Guest check-in and payment procedures are automated so there's no need for interaction with guests. If you need anything, just text me and we'll get it taken care of.

The Neighborhood

This quaint neighborhood is quite and yet has easy access (a 5 to 7 minute walk) to the fabulous restaurants, bars, shops of the Castro and Cole alley. Buena Vista, one of the largest parks in San Francisco is right up the hill, Corona Heights which is an amazing view park is around the corner. The famous Vulcan Stairs and Saturn Stairs are two minutes away. For the adventurous, the hike between the fabulous neighborhoods up to Twin Peaks is magical. There are tennis courts, dog walks, and gyms close by. The views around every corner are breathtaking, You are close to everything, yet far enough to be very private. Oh, yeah, Kite and Tank Hill are truly a San Francisco experience.

Getting Around

Right down the hill are the K, L, M, S and F Lines that will take you to anywhere in the city. The 37 Bus stops 1 block away. And, if you are visiting for work, all the Tech Buses provided by the companies stop withink blocks. I prefer walking - it is amazing how many different things you see as you venture out into San Fracisco. Parking: Street parking with no 2-hour limitation and no street cleaning - very unusual for San Francisco.
