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.

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

Sehr schönes Quartier in angenehmer und sicherer Umgebung. Zimmer enthält alles, was man zum Wohlfühlen braucht. Das Bett ist exzellent, man schläft traumhaft. Alles sehr sauber uns stylisch eingerichtetes Haus. Laurence ist sehr hilfsbereit, auch die Kommunikation mit ihm und Nick im Vorfeld war sehr angenehm und verlässlich. Wir fühlten uns sehr Zuhause und haben den Aufenthalt im Castro 281 und die Nachbarschaft seh genossen. Sehr empfehlenswertes Quartier in SFO.

Sehr zu empfehlen, die Beiden sind großartige Gastgeber und versorgen einen auch während des Aufenthalts fast täglich mit neuen Tipps und Anregungen (diskret per E-Mail). Das Zimmer ist sauber, sehr schön und praktisch eingerichtet und bietet viel Stauraum. Die Lage ist besonders toll. Es ist ein belebtes Viertel mit vielen kleinen Cafe's/Bars und Restaurants. Mit dem öffentlichen Verkehrsnetz ist man in 10 min(U-Bahn) oder 30min (Strassenbahn) im Zentrum und am Hafen.

Vielen Dank nochmal an Nick und Laurence, wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.

Ottima sistemazione: Pulita, tranquilla e confortevole. Laurence e Nick sono due ospiti fantastici, discreti e in grado di fornire informazioni utili sugli eventi e sulla città, meglio di una guida! La posizione é buona e i trasporti per downtown sono vicini (metro, bus e tram). Grazie Laurence e Nick!

Estupendo, se porto como un grán anfitrión.
Habitación grande y baño correcto.
muy limpia la casa y la habitación en particular.
Barrio "ambientado" y en el mismo centro de Castro, a escasos metros de una entrada al metro.
Volvería a ir una vez más.

Great place to stay. Close to subway and historic F train stops.

Nice and comfortable room. We also got lots of tips on things to do and see around SF.

If you are travelling by car and stay multiple nights the owner support you in getting a visitor parking permit. With this you can park your car just in front of the house. We stayed for 4 nights and this parking permit was much cheaper than parking in a garage
