traveler reviews for this san francisco apartment rental

Adorable place on a high hill

Review submitted: October 29, 2012   Date of arrival: October 12, 2012

This is an adorable place just outside of the Castro area. The room was well-kept and thoughtfully prepared for our arrival. Jim graciously greeted us and left a nice selection of breakfast pastries, fruits, juices, and yogurt for us.

The neighborhood was very quiet, but the house was incredibly convenient to get to the Castro Street Muni station (about a 5-10 min. walk) and other transit. There are lots of great little restaurants and coffee houses in the neighborhood as well.

The only warning I have for folks is that the place is atop a very steep hill. If you plan on walking to/from the place regularly, make sure you bring good walking shoes. If mobility (or heights) isn't an issue for you, I'd definitely recommend the place!

The Cottage - we loved it.

Review submitted: October 22, 2012   Date of arrival: September 23, 2012

We loved staying here. Jim was so kind to let us leave our luggage early on the day we moved in. We stayed for 4 nights but would have stayed longer but it was booked up. Book early! We really liked staying at the Castro, but you will need to walk to the muni to take the 5-10 min subway to downtown. Beware of the hills, you must be able to walk uphill! We got the 7 day muni pass and went everywhere by public transport. The Castro is not downtown.
The Cottage is VERY clean & tidy & Jim takes care of everything. As noted previously, the home owner is right next door, so this is NOT a "party" property.
I would HIGHLY recommend the cottage to any couple seeking out a neighborhood of SF and a great deal.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Cute Cottage Near Castro

Review submitted: May 28, 2012   Date of arrival: May 17, 2012

Jim and his son Matt were quite responsive and helpful in the coordination and booking of the cottage for our vacation. The rental is essentially a private section of a cottage house on a quiet residential street near the Castro district. Just a 5 minute walk to Castro Street with lots of restaurants, cafes, and bars. Plus, the Muni train station is very accessible!

The rental was clean, cozy, and comfortable. Inclusion of some basic bathroom amenities are a nice touch as well as breakfast food (bagels, yogurt) in the fridge were pleasant and quite helpful for busy mornings. When we were there in May, it was a bit cool in the evenings and the space heater was definitely needed for just before bedtime and occasionally in the mornings. Sometime there was a feel of slightly less privacy as it is an apartment within the house (as opposed to a completely separate property), but never to any detriment. Just worth mentioning.

Very pleasant and easy working with Jim and Matt and would recommend for anyone seeking a quiet home base from which to take public transit to the city's attractions; or even just a more relaxed getaway in the Castro area.

Recommended for: tourists without a car
