Located in a Queen Anne Victorian in the heart of San Francisco, this location is a perfect setting for exploring the City. Visitors without cars will find a wide range of transportation options: all MUNI train lines are within a couple blocks, including the Historic F line which travels down Market Street to Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, farmer's markets, shopping, museums and more. For travelers wanting to visit Union Street, the Marina and Presidio MUNI bus service is available on the same block; the same bus runs through the Castro and Noe Valley in the other direction. Even traveling to and from the airport is just one train connection away. Rental cars are available from several ZipCar locations within a couple blocks. Cars are discouraged; save money and hassle but not having a car in San Francisco. The clean bedroom with private bath is located in a historic Queen Anne Victorian in the Duboce Triangle neighborhood with a wrought iron gate.

This building is located in the very heart of San Francisco, with access to great transportation all over the city and much to do within walking distance. The neighborhood is safe, pedestrian-friendly and public transportation options are abundant.
This Queen Anne Victorian is located on a street lined by old Magnolia trees. The Castro district, restaurants, shops, parks all surround this location.
If you'd like a clean, cozy, classic San Franciscio studio convenient to public transportation, near fine dining options, in walking distance to parks and interesting city neighborhoods, you'd be happy with Laurence and Nick's pretty Victorian home.
After good morning coffee, we ran the surrounding hills or practiced yoga at the nearby Yoga Tree studio. Plenty of information about the sites and sounds of the city is provided to help you plan splendid days.
Our value of a retraurant or home away from Denver is whether we would return. We will be delighted to return to this sweet studio.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in SF. Laurence and Nick were very easy to deal with. They put together a binder that gave us many great options for everying from where to eat to sights to see including maps and public transit options! The care they have taken in putting it together tells how much pride they have in the community they live in. Thank you!!
We really enjoyed our stay. The suite is lovely, spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed and pillows. We loved the neighbourhood too including the architecture and colourful residents! The "Squat and Gobble" was a perfect place for breakfast/lunch and a very easy walk. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend the suite to family and friends.
Stayed at this beautiful apartment in downtown San Francisco. Location was perfect for using public transportation and getting around the city. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Nick and Laurence were very helpful upon our arrival to make sure we were comfortable and took time to explain everything about apartment and areas of interest as well as how and where to catch the buses and trains to get around the city. Apartment was extremely clean. Would definitely recommend place to a friend. Thank you Nick and Laurence. We had a wonderful time. John and Paula. Marco Island Florida.
Really nice place in the Castro area. Laurence and Nick are so nice and helpful. Rooms are spotless clean and very thoughtfully decorated. A lot of little things that made this a very special stay for my wife and me. Highly recommended!
My husband and I stayed at this property while on vacation - my first to SF. The studio apartment was attractive, clean, and just what we needed. The owners provided one of the most complete and detailed binders I've ever seen of everything from amenities of the apartment to area restaurants and transportation. They were also great at providing answers to last minute texts asking questions while we were in the city, and looked up restaurants online for us as we wandered in Chinatown not sure where to eat. The neighborhood is quiet and tree-line, and transportation to anywhere in the city is a block away. After hours street parking is available and a parking garage is within easy walking distance, but we did not need the car due to the proximity of the apartment to public transportation that took us all over the city. As mentioned, Laurence and Nick were available and responsive upon request, but otherwise we enjoyed complete privacy during our stay. The bed was comfortable, wifi and TV were great for keeping in touch with the world and unwinding at the end of the day, and on the day we were just too tired for a restaurant, we were able to prepare a meal "at home" and relax. About a block up the hill is a small market that had beautiful fresh produce, freshly made sandwiches, cheeses, milk, and other essential (including coffee) at very reasonable prices. Not only would I stay here again, I would encourage friends to do so - our hosts help make my first trip to SF truly wonderful and hassle-free.
We loved this place! Thank you Lawrence and Nick for a great stay! We definitely loved it's location, within walking distance to everything in the Castro area and very close to the muni station. Lawrence and Nick are very accommodating and leave you/send you lots of information to help with your stay (directions, maps, recommendations, etc.). A lot of the places we ate at were within walking distance of the place. The bed was very very comfortable as well and we really appreciated the Keurig and tea as well as the bath towel warmer :) We will definitely be recommending you to all of our friends and family heading to San Francisco.
Located on a Magnolia tree lined residential street just north of San Francisco's famous Castro District. This quiet residential neighborhood is safe and walkable with nice restaurants and shops. And across Market Street is the historic Castro Street theater, restaurants, bars and shops. One block away is our weekly Farmer's Market (seasonal). Located within blocks of ALL San Francisco MUNI light rail lines and the historic F line which features historic street cars from around the world and is a fantastic way to travel to Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf and more. You won't need a car! See the map - look how many parks are located nearby. Hike? Play tennis? There are a number of tennis courts nearby - play tennis surrounded by redwoods and views of the Golden Gate and San Francisco Bay. Or walk a few blocks down 16th Street to Mission Dolores which is where San Francisco was founded. VIsit the historic wooden church which still holds services in German. Dine outside and enjoy the California sun.
