Newly renovated studio w/ full kitchen, private deck; overlooking garden & patio

Harley’s Hideaway is a gorgeous garden studio conveniently located in the heart of San Francisco’s historic and famous Castro district. We are in the center of the city, just two blocks from the Castro MUNI station and numerous bus lines. Literally surrounded by great restaurants, bars, shops, and parks, this neighborhood is a fantastic destination for anyone ready to explore San Francisco.

The newly renovated apartment faces south and gets fantastic light during the day. Situated in the back of the building overlooking the backyard garden and patio, the space is extremely quiet and private. It has a full kitchen stocked with cookware, cooking tools, and basic condiments and seasonings. There is a small dining table and chairs, as well as a sitting area with two comfortable recliners. Or, relax in the sun on the private back deck in the rocking chairs – and browse one of our books on San Francisco, the Bay Area or Northern California to plan a day trip during your

visit.

The large bathroom has a deep soaking tub and rainforest showerhead, as well as a washer and dryer for your convenience. All bathroom and cleaning products used are environmentally friendly and free of chemicals, toxins, and perfumes for your health and well-being.

About the Owner

Hello, we're Stephanie and Russell, owners and operators of Harley's Hideaway. We're college sweethearts who met in the blistering cold of a Maine winter, and happily moved to the Bay Area in 2004 after graduation. San Francisco has been our home ever since, and the Castro has been our neighborhood and community for over 5 years now. In our free time we love to get outside and ski, bike, camp, and hike with our two dogs, Harley and Jazz. We absolutely love it here!

Quiet, very private and comfortable, steps to Public Transportation. Beautifully decorated and laid out apartment. Well-appointed kitchen. Bathroom has washer and dryer and dream soaking bath. Don't overlook the folder supplied which includes great suggestions for enjoying the neighborhood. Would I stay there again? - in a heartbeat.

Just perfect !

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week at Harley's Hideaway and we could not have asked for better location, the nicest getaway in the City! Although it's only one street away from the busy streets of Castro and Market, as soon as you step in the studio you barely hear any street noises and we were there over Pride weekend so that says it all! It is close to many great attractions such as Twin Peaks, Mission District, Haight-Ashbury, Golden Gate Park and many more. And those that are a bit further away are quickly accessible through MUNI one street away. The studio is loaded with all the essentials and much more, there is even a binder filled with informations, restaurant suggestions (you HAVE to stop at Super Duper for the most AMAZING burger ever!) and more. This trip was just perfect and the little haven we were calling home for that time period was one reason. We actually can't wait to go back !

Castro Studio

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the Castro Studio at the beginning of May. It was simply wonderful. The studio is cozy but it was nicely decorated and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful. (The shower was heavenly!) The suite itself was quiet but still close to everything, including the MUNI. The owners thoughtfully left a binder full of recommendations for things to do in the area. On their recommendation, we ate at Starbelly and it was delicious! We would definitely stay again!

perfect hideaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented this little gem for a quick getaway to San Francisco. We wanted to stay in the Castro, and the location of this studio couldn't have been better. Located on a quiet street just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Castro and Market streets, the unit was very well-appointed, and delivered exactly as was promised in the VRBO ad. It was clean, and had many extras that made our stay more comfortable and its tiny footprint was both cozy and practical. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating, arranging for storage of our luggage until the studio was available to heck in as well as at the end of our visit when we had to catch a late flight home. We would not hesitate to return to the studio or recommend it to friends.
