Why Romanus Wolter chose Castro District

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 Francisco (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

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

areas.



I think if you're tired of those plain hotel stays, like me, you have to stay

here instead!

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.

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5
From start to finish everything about this rental was perfect. The owner Romanus was very easy to deal with being quick to reply to emails and providing detailed information in a friendly and welcoming manner. The flat itself is charming. Set in a quiet and well kept small street, it looks exacly as it does in the photos. The inside is super clean, of a good size for 2 or 3 people and is decorated and furnished to a high standard with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in apart from my own! Unlike a lot of holiday rentals which can seem a tad bare and sterile, this flat has little bits of homely touches everywhere such as books, paintings, ornamenture unobtrusively placed that make it feel like you really are in your own home away from home. We looked forward to coming back there every evening after a busy day sightseeing to kick back, cook a meal and relax in the small garden or just look out at the wonderful view from the lounge window. To have laundry facilities was a huge bonus as our stay in SF was part of a 3 week tour so it was great to be able to wash and dry our clothes ready for the next leg of our trip. The internet connection is fast and reliable too. The flat is also situated within a 10min downhill walk to shops, public transport connections and the centre of Castro. Public transport via the busses and classic street cars (do take a $2 trip on the F1 line from Castro to Fishermans Wharf) is very cheap and frequent compared to horrendous overpriced city car parking. To sum up I would say that considering how expensive hotels and car parking are in SF it makes complete sense to rent a flat with free street parking instead and I really feel you could do not do any better that 57 Saturn St. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer and should we ever return to SF we would have absolutely no hesitation in renting the flat again.

Charming Property with everything you need

  • 5 of 5
The flat is neat and clean. The amenities provided are everything you may need for your stay. The bed is comfortable, and the iron and hairdryer were a nice surprise.
It is a 10-15min walk from the Castro MUNI which is convenient, but it's all downhill, so if walking back up beware. Suggestion would be to first get all food items at the markets off 18th and bring with you. We did not have a car and had to take 2 cabs back and forth before we got our bearings.
Overall the experience was a great one, and I would definately recommend it to travelers.

Great location, stay and exerience!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to stay somewhere in SF that had the best of both worlds, a view and a local feeling. We definitely accomplished our goals at this flat. It was located in an area that was close to everything to walk to (even though the area is hilly! wear comfy shoes). The flat itself was quaint and well maintained and had everything we needed. The view was absolutely amazing as it sits atop one of the hills in SF. The owner was very friendly and provided us with easy access and all sorts of information to the are and SF in general. We even left something that he gladly shipped back without charge. Very pleasant and easy stay.
