Keven met me at the apartment on time and helped me with my bags. He was very friendly and chatty and had a great sense of humour.
The house is pink, and adorable and has a breathtaking view of the city. I mean breathtaking. The only thing that comes close to the breathtaking view is the size of the bathtub. Amazing...
The kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything you could need, and Kevin went above and beyond with the food items to get me started. I was shocked at the quantity and quality of the stuff. Really sweet.
The house was quiet as it standalone and doesn't share walls with neighbours.
I would highly recommend staying here. The location is perfect for the castro/mission area and the bus connections are fantastic. 10 minute walk to the castro. Outstanding.
Kevin was super helpful when I had a little flood due to a torrential downpour and also upgraded the modem to make sure I got the fastest internet speeds possible in the house. He was extremely attentive and very fast to respond.
I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in San Francisco. I mean definitely.
Kevin was an exceptional host. He provided us with a lot of great information on the area and made sure the house was warm and inviting before we arrived. We stayed at the cottage for two months and really enjoyed our stay. The small backyard area was very convenient for our dog. And you can't beat the incredible views. Thanks, Kevin, for making our stay so great.
This is our second time around in this place. We just love it, the location, the view is great and getting up and down those steps is an added bonus gets us some exercise and makes for very quiet nights. Parking in the area is very easy and free.
Kevin is the most gracious of host, always ready to help and solves all problems you might have in style.
The little pink house turned out to be a really beautiful and comfortable place to stay for a couple of days in SF. We found there every thing one needs to have an unforgettable experience: a breathtaking view on Castro and downtown, a fully equipped home and a welcoming host. There was no difficulty to park a car on Corbett Ave.
We will be definitely back. Thank you Kevin!
This space was a wonderful place to land. My fiancé and I had to find a place for 2 months between houses and this was the perfect spot. Really comfortable sleeping, a gorgeous view from the living room over all of SF and an easy 10 min bus ride to the Mission. Kevin was super responsive as a host and we had an overall pleasurable stay in the Treehouse!
We stayed there for a month and it was just right, good location, nice house, great host, easy parking and walking distance to entertainment and shopping.
We will be back.
We had a fantastic time at the cottage. Everything about it is great. Special mention goes to the beautiful views, the convenient location, the superb bathroom, the fast internet and the unmatched welcome and care offered by the host Kevin, who was a legend. Yes the stairs were a bit strenuous but if I could do it so can anyone. I'm far from the fittest person around! As to get to Castro or further afield, the buses 33 and 37 are very regular and easy. We absolutely recomend this place for either short or long term stays.
Thank you Kevin for all the recommendations and the great welcome and friendly service you gave us.
Kevin was a welcoming, friendly face when we arrived at the cottage to start our new lives in SF. My husband (and cats) and I eventually ended up staying for 3 months, extending once as our apartment hunting saga dragged on for a time. We would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone!
Kevin was super accommodating--a wonderful host who seems to genuinely love the cottage and wants to provide a great experience to the people who stay there. For example when we first arrived, there was an initial plumbing problem. We let Kevin know, who resolved it swiftly and effectively, even getting hands-on to fix it as needed. He then gave us a discount on our last month as an apology for the trouble--which was very sweet and a most appreciated gesture. .
All in all we found the cottage peaceful, comfortable, charming, and in a gorgeous spot with amazing views. Yes, to get those views, you have to hike up a big hill; however, you can always wait for the 33 or 37 to get back home if you find you don't have the stamina. And seriously, those views are spectacular!
In practical matters: the cottage is fairly close to a good grocery store (Mollie Stone's), but grocery deliveries are also a great option for the area too. For dinner in the neighborhood, we ate regularly at Mama Ji's (great Chinese!), and also liked Anchor Oyster Bar, Sushi Time and Zapata for burritos.
Now that we have moved on to the gritter SoMa, we are already missing the quiet charm and beauty of the old neighborhood (the stunning urban hikes, The Castro just below, and a little bit of the "old SF" feeling in the air)...we miss the cottage already!
We were lucky enough to stay at the cottage for 4 weeks. It was a nice place with a great view. Kevin was super attentive and fast when it come to resolving any issues. The place was as advertised and definitely plenty of room for the two of us, plus our small dogs. It could have been cozier for an extended stay but I know it's a new listing and they're working to make it more suitable to longer visits. For a weekend or a day or two though a perfect place!
Oh and the stairs are a workout but the bus really is right at the top of them and I commuted to downtown daily without a problem.
this cottage at 501 Corbett was all I could have asked for. Kevin, who manages it, was so helpful and friendly. The views from this place are astonishing. One has to be fit to walk up into Twin Peaks from the Castro MUNI station, so if you do not drive or don't want to spend lots of money on cabs, don't rent this place. Other than that it is the perfect perch from which to experience San Francisco. I spent two months in this place when I first arrived and was waiting for my apt. to open up on Telegraph Hill. I could not have asked for a better experience living in San Francisco for my first two months. This place deserves its five stars.
