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.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This home was great, it was clean and had everything that we needed. Even the pullout couch was very comfortable for sleeping. Michael was very helpful with information. I would stay there again, as it was a great location.

Very nice unit; a little walking (or driving) required

  • 4 of 5

The unit is quite nice. The rooms are a decent size, especially the kitchen. There is a back patio with padded chairs and loveseat, and behind the patio is a small garden. It is somewhat unkempt, but still nice. The unit is very quiet at night.

The unit is three and a half blocks south of Golden Gate Park and two and a half blocks south of Irving Street, the "main drag" for restaurants, etc. There are also some restaurants, a bookstore, etc. on 9th Ave. (the unit is on 11th). The N Muni light rail, which goes to downtown, stops on Judah St. very near the unit and runs very frequently. The Botanical Gardens, De Young Museum and California Academy of Sciences are in the park and very close.

The walk from Irving to the unit is uphill, and the last two half-blocks are somewhat steep, so you have to have the ability to walk them, if you don't have a car. (I didn't have one and can't comment on parking.) There is an

alternative: the #44 bus, which runs up 9th Ave. It stops at Lawton, the first street past the unit, so you can take that and walk two short blocks across on level ground and then an easy half block downhill. (The unit is on the ground floor, so there are no steps to get to it.)

P.S. - The De Young has a 9th floor observation deck with great views and you can go up without having to buy a ticket to the museum. And if you REALLY want to do some walking, take the Moraga stairs up to Grand View Park - the mosaic tile stairs are beautiful and the view from the park is jaw-dropping.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Since it was our first time visiting San Fransisco we wanted a nice place to stay at that wasn't going to break our budget. This place was exactly that. It was reasonably priced and was the perfect location in the city. We could easily walk to many of the places that we wanted to see or otherwise use the public transportation. We got to see so much of San Fransisco without needing a car at all.

Great location and accomodating owner

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in San Francisco, and loved the location of the apartment. Just a short walk to the Golden Gate park which was fabulous, and to the MUNI train line which we used daily. Also lots of great restaurants nearby. Michael was accomodating when we arrived early and was available to answer all our questions. For a family of five, this apartment met all of our needs.
