Welcome to living like a real San Franciscan! We’ve put a lot of love and care into creating a wonderful home away from home for our guests. Our historic 1894 Victorian is right in the center of the City, close to the hustle and bustle of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods yet quiet, private and extremely comfortable. The flat is located just blocks away from the world-famous Castro district, but feels as though you're living in a small village. Quiet and tranquility abound both inside the flat and in the backyard, featuring views of Twin Peaks.
The 1,100 square foot (102 square meters) flat combines original period details with modern amenities and comfort. Featuring two spacious bedrooms, one with a king bed and one with two queen beds, this fabulous apartment easily accommodates the single traveler, a couple, or up to five friends or family.
Our place is unique in San Francisco because of its large and amazingly lush backyard, professionally designed to maximize outdoor living. You can sun tan on the large wooden deck, meditate by the fountain, or have an al fresco lunch at the eight-seat table. After a long day of sightseeing or shopping, have a cocktail in the yard or indulge in the chemical-free eco friendly hot tub and watch the stars above Sutro Tower.
Maximum occupancy of 4 adults or families up to 5 (two adults and up to three children)

We're David and Tudor, and we'd be happy to welcome you to our flat! We live in the flat upstairs, which unfortunately isn't as fab as the one our guests get to enjoy! We will do as much as possible to make sure you plan and enjoy your San Francisco vacation in the most efficient way (starting with offering the prime place to stay!).
One of us is a San Francisco native (a rare species indeed!), giving you an insiders take on the places to go and get the most out of your trip. The other one of us was born in Eastern Europe but moved to California for an opportunity to study here. You can guess which is which when you arrive...
We love to travel the world. When we go someplace new, we like to enjoy great food, discover neighborhoods and shops, and search out the cultural happenings of our vacation destinations. We're happy to pass along our knowledge of San Francisco in these areas (and more) and give you a local's view of the city.
We have rented homes through VRBO for nearly 10 years and always have a great time at the properties we visit. We look forward to welcoming you to San Francisco and the Castro to repay the hospitality we have received over the years!
The Owner purchased this condo in 2004
We have lovingly restored our 1894-built Victorian home over the years. We have worked hard to create an urban sanctuary of quiet and ideal outdoor living. You will be hard pressed to find another home in San Francisco, or any other global city, where you feel at peace while being only 5 minutes away from one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the world. The most common remark from our guests? How much they all loved 'coming home' to the flat after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. Come discover for yourself! You won't be disappointed.
You have been gracious hosts, so welcoming and warm, and the flat is most comfortable and tastefully decorated. The time, thought and work in the zenful garden really is apparent. We look forward to returning one day and will always speak of your place in a positive light. Much love and joy. Thank you!
We stayed here for 8 nights and had a very comfortable stay. The location in the Castro was great as it was close to the Muni station, very close to the #33 bus, yet a few blocks away from the busy section in the Castro so the area was very quiet.
We were a family of four and it was nice for our children to each have their own bed in the 2nd bedroom. The beds were VERY comfortable. Yes, the house is an older house, but it is clean and everything worked. About the only thing I could recommend is to move the microwave a bit lower down to one of the counters. Having it on top of the fridge was a bit inconvenient.
Great place and can definitely recommend.
Stayed with a fellow traveler for a week right there in/right next to the Castro.
-Hot tub yeah!!
Victorian, beautiful, sooo very charming. Definitely will book again when I m next in this great city
We were SO pleased with our stay at the Fab Flat; it was above and beyond our expectations!! Our hosts were cordial and accommodating and, although they lived upstairs, we never heard a peep! They were at the ready the few times we needed them, but otherwise, we never knew they were there. The flat is immensely charming and cheerful and had every amenity. It was a pleasure to return at the end of the day of sightseeing to have such a wonderful place to unwind. The gardens and hot tub out back were an absolute oasis. I loved the quiet peacefulness of the neighborhood and it's location just a few blocks away from the restaurants and stores. LOVED it!!
This gorgeous flat is the entire bottom floor of a renovated house in the colourful Castro district, complete with a private back yard with a soothing water feature and hot tub. The owner is amazing - very friendly and helpful, and the house has everything you need. A short walk from Castro, Noe Valley and the very efficient trams and buses that take you straight down Market St into the centre of SF I couldn't recommend this VRBO property higher.
This apartment was a total joy to stay in, from the friendly greeting by David, the no-fuss easy organising, and the absolutely impeccable apartment with hot tub as promised! My only wish is that I could live here forever….book it today, you will not be sorry. I will certainly be hoping to stay here every time I'm in SF. Thanks David! :)
Everything was absolutely perfect! The house felt like home the moment we walked in. Very clean and comfortable and spacious. The garden is a beautiful oasis.Quiet neighborhood, but quick walking distance to Muni/ Subway and to restaurants/shops in the Castro. Always found parking. David and Tudor were quick to respond if we had any questions. Lovely hosts.
