About the Owner

Hi! Kristoffer and Dan here and we want to welcome you. Dan works in Marketing and Kristoffer is an actor on Broadway and television. Having lived in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and abroad, we have traveled to many countries and love meeting new people. We have always enjoyed the experience of staying in a home or apartment versus a hotel when we travel because of the ability to experience a city more fully. We have always stayed in beautiful apartments or homes with luxurious amenities and felt it was important to offer the same to those travelers who came to stay with us. We love to experience restaurants, bars, museums and everything a city has to offer and have many many wonderful suggestions for you when you come to stay!

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5
We can only recommend staying here if you visit San Francisco. The accommodation is very comfortable and the Castro an interesting, safe area to stay. The kitchen is small but has everything you need. The hot tub is fab! Dan kindly arranged an early morning taxi for the airport. thanks!

High quality accommodation

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic accommodation, high quality decor and a very comfy huge queen size bed. Also lots of outdoor space and amazing top of the range jacuzzi, if only we had more time to make the most of it!

The owners live above the property, but leave you to your own devices. When we did bump into Dan he was very friendly and helpful recommending local bars and restaurants. All of which we're top notch and my friends and I returned to a few times.

Can't wait to return. :)

Wonderful appartment

Kristoffer and Dan were very kind and helpful hosts. We enjoyed every minute at their property, in the premises as well as in the lovely sitting area in the garden. If we hopefully come again to SF, "beyond the palm" will be our first address.

A fab stay in San Fran!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at Kristoffer and Dan's charming apartment in the Castro area of San Franscisco. Set well back from the road in a dreamy garden setting, the apartment is spacious (with a ballroom sized living room), well appointed with everything you could possibly need for your stay and perfectly located to explore the surrounding neighbourhood or head off further afield (public transport options are close by). Kriistoffer and Dan are perfect hosts - friendly, helpful and always happy to offer assistance and advice in any way they can.

The Castro itself is San Francisco's famed historic gay neighbourhood and it's bustling with cafes and bars. Within an easy walk from the apartment are some great eating options - our favourite was Pizzeria Delfina in 18th Street (the best pizza we've had outside Rome). If you're a coffee head, I'd highly recommend fourbarrel Coffee in Valencia St which is in the Mission District. You'll also find plenty of eating options in the Mission. Kristoffer and Dan can offer you a seriously good list of dinning options, and they're very in the know about what's hot on the cafe/dining scene, so pick their brains if you want to eat like a local.

Overall, our stay at Beyond The Palm was terrific. Great hosts, great neighbourhood and one of the truly great cities to visit.

Fabulous San Francisco Holiday

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I enjoyed 5 days at this wonderful property. The pictures do not do it justice- the apartment and garden are superb. Kristoffer answered all our questions promptly, returning calls as well as responding by email. Dan gave us great dinner and lunch recommendations and also suggested activities we would enjoy. The Castro district is vibrant and energetic- we spent quite a bit of time there, as well as the nearby Mission district, before venturing farther afield. The apartment is spotlessly clean, the linens and towels of a very high quality. Though the kitchen is small, it was perfect for our needs- breakfast and snacks. There are just so many incredible restaurants in San Francisco at every price point, we felt ne desire to eat in but it would have been very easy to do so- the apartment is well kitted out. We did not use the hot tub but thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful garden and exterior seating area." Beyond the Palm" added immeasurably to a wonderful family holiday.

Blissful sanctuary

  • 5 of 5
Our visit to Beyond the Palm was way beyond our expectations.

The apartment was immaculate and had everything that we needed.

The space was amazing and the facilities all of excellent quality.

The garden left you feeing you were miles from the city. We only used the hot tub once - a welcome treat at the end of a very long day. Nice just to sit in the sun and enjoy the tranquillity.

The apartment is only a few minutes walk from the F streetcar stop and these run until very late at night. We had hired a car and after guidance from the owners found plentiful free parking nearby.

The apartment itself is beautiful inside - well decorated and very clean. The bed was huge and sooo comfy, sheets of an excellent quality - all made for a perfect nights sleep.

The washer and dryer were handy too.

Shower fabby....

Dan and Kristoffer were exceptionally helpful and answered all queries promptly.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone and hope to visit again soon.

Loads of great restaurants nearby - we visited a great french bistro just down from the tram stop - can't remember is name. Late night supper is a must at Orphan Andy's or a nice breakfast - open 24 hours.

Castro is a great district, friendly and welcoming.

Must see - drive / walk up to the top of Twin Peaks - view will blow your mind away.

From the Owner

We chose to buy this property because of its central location and ease of getting just about anywhere you want to go in the city in minutes. The beauty of the neighborhood and homes that surround was also a selling point to us. We love San Francisco and the fact that in 10 minutes you can be at the beach, waterfront, luxury shopping, a concert, running in Golden Gate Park or relaxing in a sidewalk cafe in any of the cities thriving and vibrant neighborhoods. Napa, Sonoma and wine country are just an hour drive away and you can be skiing the slopes near Tahoe all day long and back home in time for dinner!

From the Owner

This apartment is quite special in that it is extremely private and lush in its surroundings. The garden and gazebo, private hot tub and top notch amenities keep it in a class all its own. Walking to Cafe Flore on Market Street for a morning coffee and pastry or relaxing by the fire table with a glass of wine at night before slipping into the hot tub for a soak are just a few of the amazing things at your disposal when you stay Beyond The Palm.
