Had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Great little place, nicely located. Being from the midwest, where July means sweltering heat, I was concerned about not having A/C, but turns out the appt was nice an cool the entire time. The bedroom had a fan which I used to help drown out any street noise, since I'm not used to having any.

When we go there we walked around the area and hit up the nice local grocery store (nicely pointed out in the info book in the appt) and stocked up on some drinks and breakfast supplies. There are some nice restaurants in the area including Harvey's where we had a wonderful waiter.

To get around, we just hiked down the hill to the subway station and grabbed a Muni Passport which let us get around to just about everything we wanted to do.

Very cozy and great location

  • 4 of 5

My family's first visit to San Francisco and this condo was well priced among those comparable that I looked at. We spent a week. The location is great, just a very short walk down to the Muni, which is just a great light rail system. Several restaurants and shopping close by, too. Great little market/liquor store just a block away, good for light groceries, etc. As for the condo itself, it was about as big as we expected. The bedroom and bathroom are good size. The living room is a little small, so I think it would be a little cramped for 4 adults, but it was perfect size for my two kids and I. The kitchen is very small and no dishwasher or oven. Mini fridge. There is a micro and stove. My only suggestions for improvement would be, for one, add more dishes. We ran out of dishes (plates, bowls, glasses) rather quickly, so more dishes would have been nice. Also, the fold out bed (sofa sleeper) is not comfortable at all (they never are) so it would have been nice to find the inflatable mattress without a hole in it. Just needs a patch, most likely. Otherwise, everything else worked. The shower is awesome. Bed is very comfy. Overall, I would recommend, especially for a couple.

Great Location and Well Maintained Apartment

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed for 5 days in March 2016. We needed a place on short notice and because of a convention in town, most vacation rentals were taken. This unit was booked for weeks except for the 5 nights we needed. It was very well kept and had a nice large bathroom with plenty of towels, bath mats etc. The kitchen was also well equipped although the stove and refrigerator were very small. We didn't cook so it didn't matter to us. The bed was comfortable too. The unit is great for two people. It was also in a great location, walking distance to restaurants, stores etc. in the Castro district as well as the surrounding neighborhoods. We would stay there again.

Great place in Castro!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome, very cute little apartment with no fuss in access or check in. The keyless entry is a great feature. As other reviews say, that last hill is...quite a hill... But the place is otherwise stunning.

Very nice apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this "Awesome Castro Gem" for 2 weeks and would definitely stay there during future trips based on location, accommodations and price. Please see below for additional information that may be of interest.

* Location: The location is awesome if you are interested in staying near the Castro district. Apartment is a 5 - 10 minute walk from the muni station which makes everything in the area easily accessible.

* Apartment accommodations: The apartment accommodations were very comfortable and consistent, from a size perspective, with what one would probably expect for San Francisco. Additional specifics include" bed is comfortable with ample shelves for laying out your clothes, living room is good for having a few people over, bathroom is actually larger than expected, etc.

* Cooking facilities: I cooked a good portion of my meals and found the associated facilities certainly adequate - 2 burner electronic stove, small refrigerator, microwave, cooking utensils, etc. Probably not suited for gourmet cooking, but this isn't what was expected.

* Street noise: I am a light sleeper so did notice street noise - wasn't an issue, but something for people to consider if this is an issue for you.

* Hills: San Francisco is hilly and the last couple of blocks from the muni station to the apartment are no exception! Great way to help one get in shape.

* Pictures: The pictures in VBRO are accurate and were helpful when selecting this location.

* Owner: The owner was very helpful with everything and a nice person. Certainly enjoyed our interactions.

* Internet connectivity: High speed internet is available and was used during the week for work -- cut out a couple of times, but certainly allowed me to work remote which was great.

Bottom line: A great location for your consideration and one much enjoyed during my recent stay!
