Notes:
I know places like Nob Hill Spa, for instance, where for an extra $35.00 Monday thru Thursday you can get a day pass to enjoy the indoor pool and if you reserve a 50 minute treatment with them they will waive the $35.00 fee. They have a great sundeck with a fantastic view as well. Or I know a brand new public indoor pool recently torn down and rebuilt brand new That costs $4.00 admission. As I mentioned earlier I have a list of street walking tours ranging from the macab to historic to stopping at every restaurant to sample their food. I'll take you to twin peaks, the highest place in San Francisco, for a birds eye view. We have over 100 restaurants in our neighborhood or I can arrange for a chef cook meals for you and leave them in the frig for you. We have two brand new museums in town one with a state of the art planetarium and one with tweeked, warped (you'll have to see it) skyscraper attached. Any way, we'll keep you busy.

Very cozy and a great basecamp for seeing the city!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great way to get a taste of what it's like to live in san francisco and it was a perfect little getaway spot. Tall people beware, the ceilings are hobbit house low but the beds are comfy, the bathtub is bomb, and Andy (the owner) is a gem.

Small, quirky place on top of a hill with great location and transport links

  • 5 of 5

3 of us stayed for 4 nights in October. We had driven in from Yosemite that morning and Andy, our host, kindly picked us up from the hire car return place. The place is small and somewhat quirky; but had everything we needed for our stay. The only water source is in the bathroom; so some co-ordination is required around showers, tea making, toilet requirements and washing up. Andy is a great host, personally ensuring we settled in well and had everything we needed. The house is on the top of a hill; but only 10 mins walk to Castro, 15 mins to Noe Valley and 25-30mins to Mission. Hence it is in a great position for all the bars and restaurants of these areas. There is a bus that runs outside the house and the Underground light rail at Castro is only 10 mins walk away. From there it takes only 15 mins to get downtown, so the place has great transport links. We took advantage of Andy’s offer to us a ride to the Airport on our departure to round off a great few days in San Francisco. Thoroughly recommended.

Had a great time in SF

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in San Francisco and it was fun to stay in one of the city's older homes. Andy was a gracious host. Everybody enjoyed his tour of the neighborhood. We took his advice and had a tasty breakfast at Eat Toast. We enjoyed the central location of the apartment as it allowed us to see a lot of the city getting to and from our various destinations. We used the power of positive thinking and found parking on the street every evening when we returned to the apartment. We all got a thrill driving our car down 22nd St and marveled that anyone would park there. My only caution to anyone thinking about renting Andy's place is that it is small. The description does mention its size and we were prepared for the small floor plan but we were not prepared for the low ceilings. If you are more than 6'6" tall, be prepared to duck a little inside of this place. Thanks Andy for sharing your wonderful home--it made for some great memories.

The apartment is very comfortable, convenient and there is a great view of the city from the balcony. Andy is a charming and very hospitable host. He has thought of everything! The tub was fabulous after a long day of walking. We loved out stay.

Excellent location and host

  • 4 of 5

Great location for Castro street- be aware there is a small hill to get to the property. Host is super friendly and accommodating. Be aware that there is no kitchen sink and the place is a little on the small side, but this did not have a major impact on our stay. Close to some excellent restaurants and bars. A very lively, liberal and accepting place.

San Francisco has both bay and ocean exposure. It's a city of hills and of course views. It also has fog; layering clothing is advised. We have a great public transit system with cable cars acquired from around the world and beautifully restored. We have many incredible National Parks less than one hour away and we have street fairs where artists sell their work all summer long. And with 24/7 concierge service if it can done in or around San Francisco, I can make it happen.

Other Activities: Street Tours including EatingTour, Vampire Tour, and a Castro Street Tour
