Excellent Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this apartment in May for my daughter's baby shower and again for a month this June/July for a month while helping my daughter tend to her new baby. Because I was staying for a month it was important to have a place to stay that I could feel comfortable and "at home" when I was not with my daughter. I needed a clean, spacious and comfortable apartment that was in a safe area so that I could walk the .6 miles to my daughters apartment at any hour of the day or night. This flat definitely fit all of my requirements! Although I have been to San Francisco many times and am familiar with the city and what it has to offer, I knew that Sam and Jim were always available to answer any questions that I might have. I especially appreciated that when I mentioned my late arrival and need for coffee in the morning, they made sure that there was coffee for me to make that first morning😉 I really loved the spacious closet and shelving area so that I could unpack my months wort of clothing. It was wonderful to have a full sized washer and dryer in the apartment for my lengthy stay! There are many cafés and food options nearby as well as grocery and drug stores. In the past my husband and I have slept on a blow- up bed in our daughters 850 square foot apartment, but with the addition of our grandson that will no longer be possible and this apartment is a perfect alternative as it is both comfortable and affordable. We will definitely be staying here again. The listing and pictures are very accurate and I would recommend this apartment highly. Thanks Sam and Jim.

Fidels on Castro totally hit the spot!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed for four nights and everything went well with no problems whatsoever. Jim and Sam were both very easy to talk to and full of useful information and good recommendations. They were very flexible with our requests, including both early check-in and late check-out [given our flight times] and answered our inquiries promptly. The fully self-contained apartment is HUGE and an easy 10 minute walk to the Castro Muni station, the J-Line train and the F-line streetcars [we bought a 7-day Muni passport that was simply hop on/hop off everywhere we wanted to go, so renting a car was completely unnecessary]. We hit all of the major sites and trekked through almost every neighbourhood to get a full experience of the uniqueness of each of them. The apartment is centrally located and was a welcome oasis at the end of each long and tiring tourist day to rest and recharge. We have no hesitation in giving Jim and Sam our highest praise and would not hesitate to stay there on future trips to San Francisco.

San Francisco Gem!

  • 5 of 5
This Victorian flat is truly wonderful! I stayed here for 5 weeks and loved it! The flat is a very spacious, sunny 1 bedroom apartment, nicely furnished and super clean. The flat was well equipped and the owner's were friendly and helpful. Great location (and safe)--under a 10 minute walk to the Castro underground station, plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. I have stayed in many VRBO properties, and while all have been nice, this one I found the most comfortable. I loved this property and highly recommend it!!!!

Gorgeous San Franciso flat

  • 5 of 5
The logistics... On 18th one block from the Church St. rail line. Two short blocks to 18th and Castro. There is a bus line on 18th. Also one flight of stairs to get into the flat. 18th has a fair amount of foot traffic even late at night so you are not out alone. The flat is gorgeous and you will feel at home especially if you are on an extended stay. Full kitchen, washer/dryer in the unit, living room, dining room and bedroom in the rear away from the street noise. The owners live upstairs and can assist with any tourist related concerns. I have been coming up to San Francisco a couple times a year from SoCal for the past 30 years or so. This flat will be first on the list of places to stay. Tired of the same old hotel stays??? Treat yourself to this rental unit. You will be glad that you did.

Fidels on Castro, Superb!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I can't thank Jim & Sam enough for making our 2 month stay this summer at Fidels on Castro such a positive experience on so many levels. It's one thing to do a VRBO for a week or two, but 2 months was a gamble, so we thought. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised coming from living in a private home in a gated community to how comfortable our stay was in a city. We chose the location due to close proximity to our children. It was such a joy not having to drive back and forth to a hotel after spending time with our family. We even hosted family and friends on many occassions. You guys rock and made our stay as guests feel like home and as neighbors. The apartment is reflected very accurately in the listing and exceeds expectations. Bedroom is in rear and allows sleeping late if desired. The Castro area is a very safe active area offering many good local eateries as recommended by both Jim and Sam in addition to a Safeway or Mollie Stones supermarket if you feel like eating in. I made plenty of use of the available BBQ and backyard patio which created a sense of normalcy for me as I do alot of BBQing at home. Recommend Fidels on Castro with no hesitation.

AMAZING FLAT!!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time in San Francisco, thanks largely to the amazing accommodations at Fidel's on Castro. Sam & Jim were very very accommodating and it was great knowing that they lived upstairs in case we ever needed anything. The flat was HUGE!! We were definitely not expecting it to be so spacious... it felt very warm and cozy and made it wonderful being able to come back to a place that felt like home every night. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was very well equipped, and we loved the seating area in the living room. The neighborhood was very lively and exciting and made for great walks for carry-out each night. The flat is in a great location, convenient to all public transportation and lots of stores and restaurants. We had a car with us and were able to leave it parked in the 2-hour parking on the street overnight, and use our car to travel to sightseeing during the day. Parking is a little bit of a pain during the day, so I'd recommend coming sans automobile, if possible. While in town, we were able to bike along the water across Golden Gate to Sausalito and ferry back, Ride the Ducks around the City and the Bay and check out Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street and Alamo Square. I highly recommend this flat to people of all ages interested in the great sightseeing available in San Francisco.
