About Regina

We are both passionate travelers and love visiting new places and meeting new people. Although we love traveling we also love to come back home to San Francisco. We have called San Francisco our home for over a decade and we never tire of the wonderful weather, the friendly people and the amazing culture and politics here. We have lived in our home almost two years, it was built before the earthquake of 1906 and the outside has been restored to reflect it's historic origins. Thankfully the inside has been fully modernized and our guest apartment is as modern and luxurious as most downtown hotels! We love having visitors and hope to help our guests enjoy the many sites and experiences San Francisco has to offer.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice, spacious apartment with easy access to the room without disturbing the family upstairs. Castro Street is a 2 minute walk with plenty of great restaurants and coffee shops. The noise of footsteps is loud in the morning, but if you're planning on touring the city, you'll be up anyways. The owner is very accommodating and flexible depending on your travel plans. Would definitely stay here again!

Miscommunication and missed opportunity

  • 1 of 5

I was looking forward to my stay in this great little apartment but it was canceled by the owner at the last minute. I will admit, it was partially my fault: when completing the original request on HomeAwayy, I had a typo in my email address. I immediately noticed the problem and pointed it out to Regina - I received one notification from her at the correct email address and assumed all was fine. I didn't hear from her again until I checked my voicemail after a 5 hour flight to San Francisco. She claims she had sent multiple emails and the final payment was never received. I never received the emails as they must have gone to the wrong address (even though she had the correct one at one point). I tried to do everything I could to pay the remainder of the balance - the homeaway site would not allow me to pay since it was so late in the game. Regina claims she went above and beyond to help me out by waiting until the last minute to call me to cancel my reservation. I thought it would have been nice to get a phone call more than a couple hours before the cancellation. Since she did have my correct phone number and she knew there was an initial mixup on my email address, I think it would have been obvious to her to reach out to me by telephone. Instead, I was left without a place to stay in SFO and lost my initial deposit. The apartment may be great, the hosts do not seem to be.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that this did not work out I did everything I could to facilitate the guest. I called the guest on their phone number and left voice mail messages and I sent numerous text messages and emails. In addition the guest received at least five reminders through VRBO. I allowed the guest until midnight of the night they were due to arrive to pay for their stay. The guest was not responding until five minutes before midnight of the day they were to arrive and they were not offering to pay. I am happy to be flexible for guests wherever possible but I am not sure how I could be expected to host someone who refuses to pay for their stay.

A great place to stay in the Castro

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this place. Lots of space, large sunny apartment that opens onto a nice garden. The Castro is just a few steps away and is easy to access, no hills to climb! (Which is a plus in SF). The apartment is close to public transport, restaurants and bars.

The apartment is a wonderful base for sightseeing. Located in the heart of the Castro but just a 5 minute walk from the bustling Valencia corridor in the Mission and a 10 minute train ride to all the down town museums and amenities. Coffee shops, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and shops are all just minutes from your front door. Also tennis courts, basketball and a beautiful public park with fabulous city views is located within a ten minute walk. Dolores Park is also home to a wonderful new children's playground and hosts outdoor cinema and other events throughout the Summer. This apartment is located on the ground floor of a private home. There is a young family living above so there will be noise from above at breakfast and dinner time and other than that the place will be very quiet and peaceful.
