Located in the heart of San Francisco, in a residential neighborhood of tree lined streets known as Duboce Triangle close to "the Castro", this comfortable private room is located on the second floor of a traditional San Francisco Victorian building. Free high speed Wi-Fi is available, and the hosts are able to answer any questions on transport or tourism within the area.

Boasting hardwood floors and period architectural detail, the property boasts an authentic charm. The cosy room is tastefully decorated and features a comfortable queen-size bed, a spacious closet and a high definition TV with a broad array of cable channels.

The room is also equipped with a refrigerator, hair dryer and a writing desk. Guests can enjoy the convenience of a Keurig brand coffee/tea machine with an assortment of coffee and teas to choose from. The en suite bathroom includes a fully tiled walk-in shower with slate floors (but not a bathtub).

The surrounding area offers a variety of outdoor cafes, diverse bars and historical attractions just a short stroll from the house. The famous Castro Theatre is just a 2-minute walk away, and the Randall Museum can be reached within less than a 15-minute walk. Subways and historic street cars are a block away providing easy access to (and easy retreat from) the CIty's tourist attractions and downtown. Public transportation is a key attraction of our location and a car is definitely not needed.

We had a wonderful time in San Francisco and our room at Laurence's lovely house did not disappoint either. It was basically what you see in the pictures, clean, comfortable, roomy, and with everything you could need. The bed is very comfy and there is a lot of storage space. The other perk of this place, aside from Laurence's fabulous hospitality, is its location. Castro is a great area that just gives you a comforting and fun feeling - it has a great atmosphere! It is also very conveniently located to public transport. Thanks to Laurence again for opening up his home to us travellers!

Laurence und Nick waren sehr nette und zuvorkommende Gastgeber und wir haben uns bei ihnen sehr wohlgefühlt. Die Buchung, die Kommunikation und die An und Abreise ging schnell und unkompliziert. Von Laurence haben wir auch viele tolle Tips für die Umgebung und Ausflüge bekommen. Das Zimmer bei Laurence war sehr schön und gerade richtig für unseren Aufenthalt.
Die Umgebung des Castro Viertels war sehr schön und lebendig, mit vielen Restaurants, kleinen Läden, Bars und auch abends konnte man sicher Spazieren gehen.

Laurence et Nick sont des hôtes discrets, charmants et toujours à l'écoute.
La chambre est aménagée avec charme. Tout y est conçu pour concilier l'utile à l'agréable (machine à café avec café et tisanes, sèche-cheveux...) . Je tiens à signaler tout particulièrement le confort de la literie et la douceur des draps.
La maison bleue vous acueille dans le parfum du chevrefeuille de sa courette avant de vous envelopper dans le grand calme de son intérieur.
La maison se situe à deux pas de rues animées et colorées de boutiques et multiples bars et restaurants avenants et goûteux.A deux pas aussi, vous trouvez un nombre étonnant de moyens de transport (métro, bus...) pour aller plus loin...dans la ville.
Mais vous revenez toujours avec plaisir, le soir, chez Laurence et Nick pour vous abandonner à vos rêves du jour passé et vous ressourcer pour les découvertes du lendemain.

The property is very well located. The room is spacious and with all the needs we needed in our trip. Laurence was very helpful with all the questions about the city. We will definitively come back to San Francisco and we will definitively recommend this property.

Perfect room for a stay in San Francisco in the Castro neigborhood, where finding a place to eat or drink is never difficult . Clean and tastefully decorated room, in a beautiful house; most helpful hosts (Laurence and Nick), who are available when you need them, but don't interfere with your activities if this isn't needed. Some outside noise, but acceptable.

Nick and Laurence’s place in Castro Street is a gorgeous place to spend very comfortable and happy days in SFO. The Victorian style house is situated in a quiet street, just a 5 minute walk away from market street, SFOs main artery. You’ll find nice restaurants (never miss the Burger in Orphan Andy’s or the Superburrito in the Mexican Cantina Zappa in 18th street!), grocery stores and, proceeding further into Castro, a very vivid, exciting neighborhood. The house is simply outstandingly clean, tastefully furnished and calm. The guest room upstairs offers a very comfortable (at least) queen size bed and a private bathroom all for yourself. We found everything in perfect order and again: very clean and proper! The hosts offer you small luxuries such as free coffee and tea from a Keurig machine, ample information material and even reloadable muni passes during your stay. Wow! Unfortunately we hadn’t the chance to meet Nick. Laurence however proved to be the perfect host, very friendly and charming, respectful and always very helpful. We won’t ever forget that someone even dragged a really heavy piece of luggage upstairs that arrived one day late, while we were out. You won’t find it any better. Finally looking for the rub, you could perhaps quote the missing view on the eternally blue californian sky out of the window: The house next door is just a couple of feet across the court. That’s it and it didn’t matter at all. Thanks a lot once again guys, we will be back! Tatjana and Rudolf

Very nice accommodation in a pleasant and safe environment. Room contains everything you need to feel good. The bed is excellent, you sleep fantastically. Everything was very clean our stylish furnished house. Laurence is very helpful, even to communicate with him and Nick in advance was very pleasant and reliable. We felt very at home and enjoyed the stay in Castro 281 and the neighborhood seh. Highly recommended accommodation in SFO.
