San Francisco is a walking city, and our Castro Street Courtyard is in the best location! We are next to shops, retail stores, cafes, restaurants, parks, MUNI (with easy access to BART) and much much more!
I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and 2 children. We only ate breakfast here but my husband did cook eggs and used some of the supplies to make hot chocolate. We weren't informed that it was Gay Pride weekend and that the street would be closed down for a huge block party. We were surprised when we got off the metro that was a block and a half away to find a huge party and some naked men. Even though the property is set back behind the building on the main street the music was blaring. I'm not sure when it finally got quiet but we all had a hard time falling asleep due to the music. We had to sign house rules saying we would be quiet. We did have a car since we were travelling all around CA and were able to find a parking space a couple blocks away on Noe St. We were there over the weekend so it was fine. We used public transportation to get around the city and it was a bit confusing. It would have been nice to have some brochures of some activities. It would have been especially helpful to have a MUNI, public transportation, maps. We went to the wharf, Blue and Gold boat tour called the Rock, walked on the Golden Gate Bridge and went along the coast to get to the airport from Lands End where we had great views of the GG bridge. I wish we would have had more time to go to the beach. The place was at a good location but not for the weekend we came.
Stayed here for a romantic trip with my husband. Great apartment. I found the layout a bit odd, but all in all it worked. Great access to railways to experience all that San Francisco has to offer. Rhanda and Laila were very easy to work with and very communicative on all of my crazy random questions.
I came with my family, five in all. We were very comfortable here. Very clean. The toilet is with the washing machine separate from the shower, so can be used if someone is taking a shower, very convenient for a family. One block away is light rail ( subway or metro ) which gets you down Market street very fast or the trolley which takes you to and runs past the entire water front. We only ate breakfast here, but the kitchen was well stocked if we desired to cook. There is a small natural food store half a block away and a larger market one block away. The real estate company that handled the transaction was very professional. I highly recommend this property.
My Wife and I just rented this apartment a few weeks back and had a great time in SF. The location is right in the heart of the Castro and a few blocks from the Muni so getting around was really easy. The apartment itself was really clean, bright and if you opened the windows - generally breezy. Awesome shower too. Its the top unit on a two story building so there are no upstairs neighbors which was great. The owners were quick to respond to questions and let us check out a few hours later than usual since our flight wasn't until 5pm. If we go back to SF we'll be checking on the availability of this place again.
Though my stay in San Francisco was due to my partner having open-heart surgery, my mother-in-law and I did not want to stay in a hotel while my partner was recuperating at CPMC (California Pacific Medical Center), therefore we were looking for a 2-bedroom apartment and boy, did we score!!!
After spending most of our days at the hospital, comig back to the apartment was a welcome relief and total relaxation. With Mollie Stones (local market) 2 blocks away, and a plethora of restaurants, shops, and bars, you can't go wrong in the Castro!
The apartment had Old Charm Castro. We absolutely loved it. And what's even better is that the apartment sits in the back, not right on the Castro strip, therefore you are able to get sleep and rest. Showers in the morning --- lovely! Strong jet streams to wake you right up!
As in the previous review, I may suggest upgrading the sofa bed, and perhaps a "softer" bed in the main bedroom (although I prefer a "firmer" bed - my partner preferred it be "softer...") My mother-in-law who slept in the smaller room stated it met her needs. It was also nice to just chill in the living room and watch t.v. One pleasant surprise is that if you open the kitchen window facing north, you are treated to this wonderful view of two gardens adjacent to each other. Simply beautiful...
Now for the time that we were there, I did have to use my car to get back and forth to the hospital although the Muni stopped in front of Castro/18th and would have taken us directly to CPMC. If you MUST use a car, then may I suggest getting a temporary visiting parking permit (at SFMTA on 10 South Van Ness Avenue) ) which allows you to park your car in the Castro and not have to move your car every 2 hours!! That information was given to us by a neighbor in the Castro!
All in all, this apartment was beyond our expectations. Laila was even gracious when unexpectedly, we needed an extra night and she was able to accommodate us! When we come back to SF under better circumstances, this is one apartment I will definitely come back to!!!
Thank you!!! Definitely worth coming back to!!!
We stayed at this property for 6 days. I have to say that we were amazed at how convenient this location was. We were a block from the MUNI which will take you all the important stops for all the museums, and main points of interest. We did not rent a car while there. With this location there was no need to. If you are wanting to partake in the life blood of the castro, everything is close by literally. Harvey's, The Edge, 440, QBar, Badlands, Starbucks, and tons of shopping geared to us men are all about a block in any direction. Makes for an easy trek home after an enjoyable night... LOCATION IS AWESOME. Great walks were had through the castro, close to the haight/ashbury, the mission, delores park. Great local restaurants are all around - you just have to walk around and discover them.
The apartment itself was great. Awesome split bathroom, newly updated kitchen...Everything worked well. Large washer/dryer in the unit was awesome. The shower is large enough for two, great water pressure and very relaxing! Great little courtyard...Open the windows, and you just had this awesome breeze running through the flat. Great views of Castro Valley from most of the windows...
Extremely quiet! You could not hear any of the buzz that was going on castro street. I have to say that I will stay here again! It definitely made for an enjoyable stay, relaxed and calm. Checking in was super convenient.
Kudos to the staff that arranges everything. Dealt with them via email, processed the transaction and all was good to go! The unit has everything you would need for a short to long stay in San Francisco.
