This space was every bit as advertised and more. The grounds were immaculate as was the apartment. Very convenient location as the undergrad 'MUNI' was just a block from the house. Plenty of restaurants and coffee shops to walk to as well.
Ron was there to meet us and made sure we had everything we needed. The drinks in the fridge was a nice touch and there were plenty of toiletries available as well. The espresso machine was also treat!
We enjoyed chatting with Ron and Dennis in the tea house. They made us feel at home here during our anniversary weekend. And being dog lovers, Lisa and I loved the greetings we would get from Mana!
Thanks for a wonderful stay in such a peaceful oasis. We had a very relaxing stay and are looking forward to a return visit.
This apartment is fantastic - the wonderful photos do not do it justice! A perfectly designed space of your own, in an idyllic zen-like paradise of a garden. You wouldn't know you were just steps from the bustle of the Castro. Ron and Dennis are the perfect hosts, going out of their way to make me feel at home, and offering useful tips and advice for my visit. Mana, their dog, is also a good host, welcoming you home in the friendliest way. The added extras, like the complimentary drinks in the fridge, and the coffee for the machine, really made me feel welcome.
Definitely worth staying, especially if you like good design! The Eames chair is especially comfortable after a day in the city, as it the elegant chaise-longue at the end of the bed. The apartment is also within a few minutes walk of the Muni station, and of the Castro & Market terminus of my now beloved F-Line historic streetcar line, that will take you down Market Street towards all the city has to offer.
Ron also very kindly allowed my friend to get changed in the apartment prior to his wedding - his bride-to-be wasn't joking when she said she wanted him out of the way as she got ready for their big day!
I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in San Francisco, and I look forward to staying here again if I return to the city.
Thank you Ron!
I can confidently say that I will never stay anywhere else in SF. What an amazing home that is impeccably decorated. The pictures on the site actually don't do it justice. It is like a little paradise in the heart of the Castro.
Ron was absolutely wonderful! So welcoming and pleasant. Truly a great host. The apartment is stunning and stocked with anything and everything you might need. Location is incredible. Would absolutely stay again and would highly recommend this oasis in the city to anyone. Thank you for everything, Ron!
Amazing apartment in a beautiful garden. Very comfortable, with all the amenities, and Ron made me feel very welcome. Highly recommended.
Ron was great! Responsive, easy to work with and provided my coworker with an awesome experience! She felt like a queen in his home and the location was perfect. Will definitely book again!
Ron and Dennis's apartment was beautifully decorated and just as portrayed in the photos, and they were the perfect hosts by being very welcoming and graciously accommodating. We arrived on Valentine's Day and Ron was quick to make sure we had dinner reservations. It was a pleasure to spend time in their lovely garden, which was a tropical oasis in the heart of the city. The Castro has a fun vibe and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the neighborhood. The apartment is conveniently located for public transportation and it is around the corner from the F Streetcar line. We'd love to stay there again and we will definitely recommend their home to others!
An excellent get-away.
Yes, you should stay here. All the reviews and positive comments about his place are totally deserved! If you think the pictures are beautiful, just know it is even more stunning in person. It is a welcoming, beautiful, and comfortable respite after a day of exploring the city. We highly recommend!
If airbnb were trying to choose the perfect host who offered impeccable accommodations that truly set the industry standard, Ron Newman would be their man. Such a wonderful and surprisingly private apartment combined with a courtyard that no photograph could even compare to actually being there to experience it. The “secret garden,” (a tropical oasis), could be admired from what was our favorite space during the stay. An entire wall of glass was the highlight of this unique room that seemed to float in the garden as we enjoyed some peaceful time and rest. Ron and Dennis possess a keen sense of timing with their interaction as host to their guests. They saw to our every need before we could even ask. Oh yes, their Mana was such a special treat. She was wonderful and actually made us miss our little ones back home a bit less. There was however, one regret… we were not there long enough to spend more time with Ron and Dennis. They truly are the perfect hosts. Well done…
All the best,
Danny and Vernon
