The Castro Private Apartment was a terrific choice for my recent stay in San Francisco. The location is perfect, close to the action, but just far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. Ron is a superb host. He's taken care of all the details: Immaculately clean, a little fridge with water and juice, snacks, tea, coffee, plenty of towels, and beautiful, comfortable furnishings.
I want to especially point out the relaxing indoor - outdoor garden: Perfectly Zen, a calming oasis, a hundred little surprising details to catch and delight the senses.
Ron quickly addressed an issue I had with the room, even though it took a weekend service call.
I've already recommended the Apartment to several friends.
The apartment was great and our host charming and accommodating. The suite was exactly as presented and made all the better by the little extra touches that were added (drinks in frdge; nespresso coffee, etc.).
Highly recommended - superb apartment at superb location and very welcoming and easy host
This was a truly wonderful (email hidden)om the moment you walk through the garden gate, you know you are in a special place. Aside from how lovely everything was, the attention to detail made it really welcoming! Ron was so helpful with directions and suggestions & Mana is just a sweetie.....Highly recommended all around
Ron’s place was stunning! The private garden is absolutely beautiful. The apartment was perfect for relaxing after long days in the city. The room had all the amenities, loved the attention to every detail. Location was perfect. Highly recommend!
Great experience in the heart of the Castro. Fantastic location within walking distance of great bars and restaurants and convenient public transport to other parts of the city. The garden is a tranquil haven, hidden behind closed doors and it was a privilege to stay here. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating and it was especially lovely to be welcomed home by gorgeous Mana the dog!
Ron is a great host. In addition to having a beautiful home and with a gorgeous garden, all of the small amenities of the house were also taken care of. The Advil and water came in handy after an amazing pride weekend just around the corner of Gay, USA.
The spot is a private converted basement that reaches about 6'1 which is my height, so it worked perfectly. Any taller and you might not make it. But even I fit comfortably in the spa bathtub which was a delightful treat after walking miles up and down SF.
The space is decorated in a beautiful Polynesian theme, but not the cheesy kind -- beautifully authentic with attention to detail. Every place we looked throughout the yard had been well thought out and welcomed you. It was a wonderful place to retire to after a hectic day in the City.
Ron has considered everything and we were never for want. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this place is because I don't want everyone to know about the secret garden Castro oasis that we found.
My husband and I had a great stay here. Ron was a wonderful host. He greeted us upon our (late) arrival and walked us through the living space. The space was exactly as pictured on airbnb. The fridge was stocked with beer, juice and water. Ron also brought us cream for our coffee and provided coffee and tea which we were able to brew in our space. Ron gave us plenty of privacy during our 4 night stay while also making himself readily available to answer questions by text. He was able to help with directions and restaurant recommendations. Mana was an easy going dog who gave us a warm welcome and respected our privacy as well. The location of the house was extremely convenient to public transportation and very central to other parts of the city. We enjoyed calling this our home while we visited San Francisco.
Had a very welcoming arrival and the room was exactly as the description and pictures showed. Absolutely every detail was thought of, it was like staying in a 5 star hotel. The best location for anyone wanting to use the handy Castro as a hub and only a 2 minute walk to the metro and trolley bus down to the CBD and water front. Best Airbnb we have stayed at. A+++
Ron was most welcoming explaining how everything works and the leaving us to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this most wonderful space. Words are not enough to convey the warmth and opulence of Ron's place. Everything was catered for, plush towels in abundance, tea, nespresso machine, very comfy bed, excellent pillows, large bath and hot shower all within walking distance to tram, train to downtown SFO. Don't look anywhere else.
