Guestbook comments from the owner

LeighAnna's place is wonderful, and she is more than accommodating. Communication was super easy leading upto the stay and during, and she shared great recommendations not only for SF but our trip up from Santa Barbara as well.

The apartment is conveniently located uphill from Castro, and you can take either the bus from around the corner, or the streetcar from a few blocks down to go most places in the city.

The kitchen was well appointed and we never felt it lacking for anything ( kudos for the double teapot :) ). The bedroom was comfortable and the house had plenty of space to sit/work if your party wakes up at different hours.

Will definitely recommend to friends, and hope to stay again when I come back to San Francisco.

What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
It was the first time that we booked a flat for our vacations.

We (group of 4) went for one week to SF.
The flat is very well-equipped and huge with 3 bedrooms.
It was great to have this amazing kitchen to cook for us as well as the washing machine and dryer.

The location of the flat is perfect to ascertain the city and every you need is near by.
It took us 10 min to the muni and also bars and restaurants.
Also the communication was very easy and LeighAnna replied always immediately.

Hopefully we can come back very soon and can recommend this flat!

Beautiful and comforable flat

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 5 and loved this apartment! It is located in the Castro district and we found it very easy to get around SF. We especially loved being able to explore the nearby Mission and Haight-Ashbury Districts. The apartment really is quite luxurious with a beautiful kitchen and the most amazing bathroom! I loved being able to sit at the kitchen table and look out onto the lovely backyard and the houses on the hills after a long day of exploring SF. We really felt so lucky! Also, LeighAnna and Brett have really great recommendations for food, walks, parks, etc.. almost anything you would need in their house guide.

A+++++

10/10 in all categories. Beautiful apartment, charming decor. Comfy bed. Perfectly clean, yet very welcoming and homey at the same time. Great location, near the metro. The owners were friendly and helpful, and reachable at all times. Good natural light. Nice (and quiet) neighbors. There was nothing about our experience that did not delight us. Even the pantry was stocked with lovely stuff. I wanted to live here and never leave. Next time I'm in the Bay Area, this is where I'll stay.

Location

We wanted a place of our own that allowed us to truly enjoy and explore the city, and also felt like part of a vibrant, friendly, cozy neighborhood. The simple Eduardian design gave it charm and fit well with our vintage modern design aesthetic.

The house is filled with our favorites things--a beautiful library table that my mom refinished, kitchen cabinets custom built by our design-build friends in LA, art that Brett has collected from friends and various personal and work projects over the years, and a lot of our own elbow grease.
