About Navin Agrawal

I'm a San Francisco resident since 1999 and appreciate the beauty and character of the historical homes of San Francisco.

Navin Agrawal purchased this house in 2006

Why Navin Agrawal chose Castro District

Live like a true San Franciscan in an 1899 Victorian which is located in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods of San Francisco where you get the local feel, from the creative arts to the array of savory foods from the diverse ethnic restaurants.

What makes this house unique

I love the local feel of the neighborhood. Dolores Park, which is around the corner is a great place to soak in the sun and people watch. A short walk to the Valencia Street corridor and I can find almost any ethnic cuisine to fulfill my palate.

Stunning Home!

  • 5 of 5
I am totally depressed this morning as I am writing this review from my cubicle in crisp East Coast weather wishing I was still there! We stayed there for a family vacation/marriage celebration and it was perfect! Especially with a toddler. The backyard was the perfect place for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning and star gazing at night! We felt perfectly at home and enjoyed every minute. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Any questions or concerns we had were answered in an instant during our stay. Navin was excellent! We can't wait to come back. Go Giants!

Not exactly as it seems...

  • 2 of 5
I'll be brief, but honest. My husband, infant daughter and I stayed here for just under a week in August. We were quite excited to stay at this property as photos look so enticing. From the moment of arrival we were off to a bad start. We arrived approx 2 hours AFTER check in and the place was a disaster. The cleaner was there scrambling to get started. She vaccumed around us and did a quick job. Bottom line is THIS PLACE LOOKS TIRED. It has beautiful decor that once was looking fresh I am certain but you can tell this place is a revolving door. Not to mention the continuous barking dog next door and the fact that the back porch area is so unkept (fireplace does not work). The toilet seat was broken, the knob on the bathtub fell off when I tried to bathe my daughter. You can hear the downstairs apt people etc. List goes on. The neighbourhood is touch and go to. Just be wary when renting this place. It needs some TLC and an honest review so such changes are made.

Owner's Response: Dear Megan,

The cleaning lady had a late start that day due to her baby being sick. Cleaners spend at least 3-4 hours to make the home immaculate for all guests arrival. All the furniture, including the mattresses are of high quality which were purchased less than 3 years ago.

The interior of the home was professionally designed and is maintained with fresh new paint every year so I’m not sure how you perceived this multi-million dollar home as “looking tired” and a “revolving door”

All guests who have stayed at this property have given 5 star reviews, including other websites such as Airbnb.

The outdoor patio is also maintained by a gardner as well as cleaned on every new guests arrival. The fireplace in the back patio DOES work and was working during your stay. The toilet seat has been replaced as the hinge was wearing off. The handle in the tub only had a loose screw which was easily screwed back on tightly.

There are dogs in the neighborhood which bark occasionally which is beyond my control. San Francisco is a city with lots of dogs and dog lovers.

The neighborhood where the home is located is Dolores Park and is one of the San Francisco’s best neighborhoods. Please ask any San Franciscan or anyone who KNOWS San Francisco how wonderful this neighborhood is, especially being next to Dolores Park and the Valencia St. corridor where all the locals favorite restaurants are located.

Sorry if you had a bad experience with the house not being ready upon your arrival and it will be addressed as all your other feedback will be taken into consideration.

Sincerely,
Navin

We stayed here for my Mom's 70th birthday recently and it was just fantastic. Navin is such a kind person and was very accomodating in answering our questions and providing suggestions about where to eat, etc. in the city. He has amazing taste and has renovated his home to a very high standard. The pictures look good on vrbo but the real thing is even better in person! Lots of room, high ceilings, lovely ornate details in keeping with the Victorian era and decorated to combine modern touches with period pieces. I am a design afficiando and was totally impressed. This is an amazing "home away from home" and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The home was ideally located for taking public transit, so you don't need a car. Just a short walk to the nearest Muni train/cable car station. The Castro area is really funky- very like the West End in Vancouver/B.C. where I live. We really enjoyed walking the streets and felt very safe there. Next time we come for a visit to San Fran we will be sure to stay here again. Thanks for everything Navin!
