About Michael

My husband and I have lived in San Francisco since 1981, and we LOVE the ocean. In 1985 we bought this house. My husband is an artist and I am a musician.

Michael purchased this castle in 1985

Why Michael chose San Francisco

We love the area.

We love the location, location, location,

What makes this castle unique

We love how it is so close to the Golden Gate Park attractions, horse riding and more. Renting the paddle boat on the beautiful lake, bike riding, going to the breathtaking waterfall and being close to nature while being in the middle of everything San Francisco has to offer.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean and the location is great-easy to get to various places in San Francisco. Parking was also available within 1/2 block. It has a nice little private patio.

Excellent location and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly as advertised. Incredible location! The apartment was clean and had everything you'd need. Michael, the owner, was detailed during check-in and spent time helping us get aquatinted with the area. The backyard garden area was beautiful. There were plenty of fabulous places within walking distance including a local grocery store, coffee and restaurants. We took Uber or public transportation everywhere else we went.

Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Extraordinarily clean and quite comfortable for two people. We were intern for Hardly Strictly and it was a fairly easy walk to the park (about 2 miles). Convenient markets close by and nice places for breakfast. We were able to score a parking place directly in front of the door to the apartment, but considered ourselves extraordinarily lucky. Parking could be a problem, but you could easily leave the car at home as the location is two blocks from public transport that could take you everywhere in the city.

Kitchen is adequate, dishwasher, oven, microwave and big fridge. Plastic covers on seats were weird.

We didn't use it, but there is a lovely little porch you could enjoy if the weather is nice and washer and dryer are available.

Everything was clean and available, Michael was very helpful and attentive.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and quiet in a good neighborhood close to public transit and a market. We had five people, Michael was kind enough to give us an air mattress (good air mattress!) with enough bedding and towels for everyone. He was very accommodating and showed us how everything worked. Washer and dryer were also a perk! We didn't use the kitchen for cooking but everything was available to do that. We would definitely stay here again!

Nice location close to key places and a helpful host

  • 4 of 5

Michael explained everything to us, even we arrived very late evening - thank you very much! Everything as described - the kirchen is equipped with the basics you need for your stay. The condo is well located in a nice neighborhood and close to grocery store, restaurants and the Muni Line and the nice Golden Gate Park with museums.

Great location, clean, comfortable and cosy. The host was very helpful and a gentleman.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 2 teens and 1 tween) traveling from Australia around the US for a month. We stayed here for 3 nights and found it to be adequate.

The apartment is located in a nice central suburb of inner San Francisco with easy access to the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard St and Botanical Gardens.

Nice property with a courtyard - maybe a little on the cosy side for our group - particularly only having the one bathroom but we managed. It has all the facilities one needs for a short trip and a supermarket not too far away to stock up with anything you need. It was handy to be able to use the washing machine and dryer too. The bed in the main bedroom is very comfortable.... a real bonus.

All in all we had a very positive experience and Michael (the host) made us feel at home.

The only thing I would warn anyone who has a vehicle to be extra careful as there is no allocated parking. Make sure you don't park in front of a driveway....they will tow your car away. Something we learnt the hard way. A very costly lesson. Uber is cheap in SF and buses are everywhere so you could do without the headache of a car.

Excellent restaurants within walking distance and we took Michael's recommendation and dined at the local Vietnamese which was delicious.

It was really nice to spend time in this very beautiful city and this place was all we needed.
