1906 film camera mounted on the front of a cable c: An astonishing blend of horses, wagons and cars - no street lights but plenty of jay walkers. Amazing how dressed up most of the pedestrians are. This is fascinating.

This film was 'lost' for many years. It was the first 35mm film ever. It was taken by camera mounted on the front of a cable car. The amount of automobiles is staggering for 1906. Absolutely amazing! The clock tower at the end of Market Street at the Embarcadero wharf is still there. (I'm also wondering ... how many 'street cleaning' people were employed to pick up after the horses? Talk about going green!)

Great historical film worth watching.

Great Location, Value and Hospitality!!!!

Our group, 2 couples in town for the 49ers-Seahawks game, had a GREAT time at Andy's vacation rental. To start, Andy picked us up from the airport at 1am (flight was delayed and he monitored and was ready for us). The day after we arrived Andy took us on an excellent tour of the nearby neighborhoods and "twin peaks". The location was ideal for us, the bus stop is literally out the front door and other public transportation (subway and trolleys) are just a few blocks away. The neighborhood restaurants fantastic, try the Jambalaya at Fork Café or anything at Anchor Oyster Bar! The apartment suited our needs perfectly: no kitchen as we didn't intend on cooking but had fridge, microwave and coffee pot for snacks and drinks, it was comfortable, quiet and had loads of character. We had a great trip and would recommend this rental in a heartbeat if you want a place with great hospitality, plan to get out and enjoy the best of what SF has to offer and have a party that needs 2 queen beds.

EXCELLENT STAY, BEST DEAL IN TOWN!

First of all the place was great, basic but very clean and comfortable. We didn't need the Ritz Carlton, just a place to lay our head after running around the city all day. If your staying inside in San Fran your doing it all wrong anyways. Andy is what brings everything together. For a small additional fee he picked us up from the airport, gave us an AWESOME tour of the city and brought us back to the airport. This was for a small fraction of what an angry cab driver would have charged. He was in the apartment upstairs if you needed him, but never popped in unexpected or anything like that. Bonus, he owns a shampoo and soap business so the bathroom is stocked with all sorts of good stuff. Its in the Castro which is their gay district and very happening with shops. Walking distance to a bunch of restaurants and bars and close to the mission district which is a really happening area as well. This part of the city is what san fran is truly about, not the chain stores in union square or the waterfront. Overall, best deal in San Fran, hope to return.

The apartament was exactly as it was described. It was clean and well equiped. Andy was very helpful, he has picked us from airport and drive back on departure. Communication with him during booking process, arrival and all stay was no problem. He provide us with all necessary information on arrival + extra trip. The house is lokated in district with pure SF spirit. There is many restaurants, bars, shops in walking distance. MUNI is in 5 min walk and bus stop is just outside the door. Andy's apartament was the best choice for us for few days trip to SF.

Andy's place - a gem on top of a hill

From the moment that Andy picked us up at SFO after a sixteen hour long trip and greeted all of our group with hugs we knew that we had chosen the right place to stay. This friendly host took us on a tour of his neighborhood before driving us to our holiday address, showing us a selection of The Castro's best restaurants, stops, etc. The tour included a visit to Twin Peaks with the breathtaking view of all of San Francisco - what a way to start a vacation.

The apartment itself is smaller than we expected (we were a group of four), but we have absolutely nothing to complain about. The beds were excellent, the bathroom with all of Andy's soaps and scents was amazing, and the location unparallelled: away from the tourist areas, but in a safe and beautiful neighborhood. Climbing Castro Street several times a day is good exercise, but difficult if you are elderly or frail, but don't let that discourage you. There is a bus to the door several timer per hour.

We highly recommend this place and will not hesitate to book it again when we come back to San Francisco.

The place is very nice and clean. Andy is the most wonderful host i can imagine. He picked us up at the airport and his ride through the neighborhood was great. He's helpful in every way, e.g. drove us to the pier for our trip to Alcatraz. Can absolutely confirm the former reviews. There's only one place to stay in SF, at Andy's.

San Francisco has both bay and ocean exposure. It's a city of hills and of course views. It also has fog; layering clothing is advised. We have a great public transit system with cable cars acquired from around the world and beautifully restored. We have many incredible National Parks less than one hour away and we have street fairs where artists sell their work all summer long. And with 24/7 concierge service if it can done in or around San Francisco, I can make it happen.

Other Activities: Street Tours including EatingTour, Vampire Tour, and a Castro Street Tour

Notes:
I know places like Nob Hill Spa, for instance, where for an extra $35.00 Monday thru Thursday you can get a day pass to enjoy the indoor pool and if you reserve a 50 minute treatment with them they will waive the $35.00 fee. They have a great sundeck with a fantastic view as well. Or I know a brand new public indoor pool recently torn down and rebuilt brand new That costs $4.00 admission. As I mentioned earlier I have a list of street walking tours ranging from the macab to historic to stopping at every restaurant to sample their food. I'll take you to twin peaks, the highest place in San Francisco, for a birds eye view. We have over 100 restaurants in our neighborhood or I can arrange for a chef cook meals for you and leave them in the frig for you. We have two brand new museums in town one with a state of the art planetarium and one with tweeked, warped (you'll have to see it) skyscraper attached. Any way, we'll keep you busy.
