Guestbook comments from the owner
Having grown up in SF and going back to visit many times, I decided that I
wanted to get back to that at-home feel this last visit. I was tired of the
loud, cramped hotels, the expensive hotel parking, the lack of privacy, and
most importantly the lack of that feeling of actually being part of the city,
and more of just a tourist.
This is why I wanted to try a vacation rental, specifically this flat.
And I'm so glad I did!
If you stay, think about what you're missing out on: a private apartment
likely twice the size of many hotel rooms, a full kitchen to cook and save
money on eating out, a refrigerator for any leftovers, free street parking
(many of the hotels I stayed at are around $40 a night!), great views, and
being close to public transportation that will take you to many of the tourist
I think if you're tired of those plain hotel stays, like me, you have to stay
I'm a filmmaker, writer, director and enjoy the smile I bring to our guests. Discover more at: http://www.RomanusWolter.com
57 Saturn Street is central to everything in San Francisco - yet, far enough away from the commotion that the peaceful rest provided is magnificant. When walking my pup, I pass by Corona Heights Park (best view of the City I believe), tennis courts, flowers, Rosemary Trees, blackberry bushes, plum trees, and wonderous Views.
Yet, when I feel the urge I can quickly walk down to two different small villages (The Castro and Cole Valley) and eat or purchase whatever I feel like in that moment. And, also take the Subway to any location in San Francisco I need to go.
Romanus' favorite Guest Review:
If anything the listing understated the benefits of staying here. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION says it all. The flat (apt) is near the Castro muni stop from which you can visit virtually all of the attractions in San Franciso (SF); eg the F streetcar goes from the Castro directly to Fisherman's Wharf. You can change along the way for a ride on the cable car or take a bus (or subway/train) to any attraction SF has to offer. The muni system is very easy to navigate, with maps available showing the various routes clearly marked. Since my wife & I had rented a car for the out of SF experience as well (Muir Woods, Napa Valley, Sausalito, etc) we were interested in the parking situation which proved to be plentiful and free near the apt (for the 10 days we were there we found parking within view of the apt building daily). The apt itself was more than clean it was immaculate, as well as cheery and bright with a postcard view from the livingroom window. To the right was the Twin Peaks and in the distant left Alcatraz with plenty of picturesque SF houses on the hills in between. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance, from fast food to dining to breakfast (my favorite breakfast place was Squat & Gobble). Since virtually all of SF is but a commute away (if you're in a hurry taxis are plentiful) the list of restaurants is endless. Not only would I recommend this apt to family and friends it will be the first place I call on my next trip to SF. Frank & Melissa
