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 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

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.

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.

Comfortable, quiet and private!

  • 5 of 5
The owner made it easy for us to come and go from this great property located close (7-8 min walk) to Castro St. The unit was clean and private with a very comfortable bed. Even though in a big city, we slept peacefully as it was very quiet. We walked to/from Castro Street once per day. It is uphill on the way to the unit, so save some energy for the last bit. We recommend for those who are fit. Close enough to Muni underground and great parking which was perfect for us! We found everything we needed and enjoyed the amazing views. We did not get to meet the owners as we were out and about all the time, but all interactions were pleasant and helpful. We are thinking of coming back next year as it was a perfect spot for the long weekend.

A steep brisk walk up the hill to enjoy the view

  • 4 of 5
Romanus' apartment is a short if steep walk frim the Castro Muni. Internal stairs down into it are also steep. Parking if you need it can be had but be warned no parking is easy in San Francisco. One night we searched 15 minutes for a space and finally found one at the bottom of the Saturn St steps - great for your fitness! The apartment is clean and has a remarkable view. The oven and gas heating do not work. Small electric fan heaters are privided and seemed adequate. The gas stove top does work and is helpful when you want to cook for yourself. Good guest guidance notes are provided and helped us find many local eats and treats. I would recommend this apartment to all fit and able to access this lovely view.

Wonderful, quiet, and relaxing apartment.

  • 5 of 5
Stayed a week at this quiet apartment for some R&R. Enjoyed waking up to the beautiful view of San Francisco each morning. The location was convenient for seeing friends in the Castro, Mission, and Lower Haight, as well as to the MUNI. Romanus was a great host and the apartment was a great getaway.
