Beautiful and HUGE 1 bedroom apartment. Steps from EVERYTHING. Luxurious amenities and sleeps up to 4 people.

This gorgeous and spacious 1 bedroom apartment is located in The Castro neighborhood of San Francisco. The garden apartment is part of a large Edwardian home that has been renovated with every attention to detail. Crystal doorknobs with brass accents, period glass light fixtures, Berber carpeting and crown molding are just a part of the beauty of this incredible 1908 property.

The apartment has been tastefully decorated and furnished by a professional interior designer and features a King sized bed with memory foam pillowtop, Egyptian Cotton sheets and linens and down comforters. Beautiful artwork, some original, accents the walls and brings a modern feel to the space.

A living room with Queen sized pull out memory foam sofa bed is amazingly comfortable and cozy. The entertainment center includes a DVD player, CD and Stereo System, DVD library and Cable TV with premium channels. Adjacent to the living room is a large dining room area that also can be used as a workspace for guests traveling on business.

Toaster, blender and Coffee Maker along with other basic essentials are all provided to make sure that you are never without.

A rain shower head is the pampered feeling you want when getting into the stunning fully tiled shower. After stepping out, surround yourself in fluffy 100% Egyptian Cotton Towels or throw on your extra plush cotton robe and make your way out of the double french doors onto the properties beautiful landscaped patio. Relax with a glass of wine or champagne in the rich chocolate colored wicker patio furniture with overstuffed cushions for your comfort. Enjoy the new glass and stone fire/table or maybe make your way over to the gazebo and submerge yourself in the Extra Large 8 person Hot Tub and let the jets and heat soothe away a full day of shopping and sightseeing.

A short walk brings you just about anywhere you want to go!!! You are half a block off Market Street and just a few short blocks from Castro Street where you can catch the famous F street car to Union Square, The Embarcadero, Ferry Building and Fisherman's Wharf or take the subway from Castro Street to anywhere you want to go.

About Kristoffer Cusick and Dan Hickle

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!

Kristoffer Cusick and Dan Hickle purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Kristoffer Cusick and Dan Hickle chose San Francisco

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“The accommodation was just perfect, it is in an ideal location within the city which allows you to feel part of the city but be able to escape at the same time. The accommodation is spacious and very clean, there was two of us but even if four people shared the space it would be more than big enough. We chatted to Dan on our arrival who kindly showed us around and showed us how everything worked. Everything was perfect and you can tell the the hosts see this as an extension of there own home. The outdoor space is a massive bonus and the perfect place after a day of site-seeing, the outdoor tub is brilliant and the fire pit is the perfect place to drink a few glasses of wine. The home is located in a great area with some amazing restaurants and bars, the welcome manual is full of information. The home is only a five minute walk from the tram line which only costs $2.25 to get all the way into the city. If you are looking for a spacious, clean, immaculate property with the bonus of the outside space then look no further than this property. when we return to the city we will not stay anywhere else. Dont look elsewhere this is the place to stay in San Fran. ”

Secluded getaway in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a super stay in this beautiful apartment. It was a short walk to public transport options and although the street outside had a two hour limit on parking, we were able to park (for free) on Market Street very easily and only had to move the car once for street cleaning. Dan and Kristoffer were very responsive and helped us out with advice on parking which was great!

The apartment was spotless, and really quiet - you'd never know you were in the middle of the city. The living area was spacious and although the kitchen was small, we were out and about so much that we didn't really use it. Ask Dan and Kristoffer for advice on the nearest shops - we walked much further to a grocery store than we needed to!

The garden was lovely, and we all enjoyed the hot tub at the end of a long day pounding the pavements. We also had two great dinners - one at Kitchen Story and the other at Chow - we'd recommend both.

Absolutely fabulous: great accommodation, thoughtful hosts, hot tub a plus...

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, ideally situated in The Castro and 5 minutes from bars, restaurants, the grocery store and great coffee. There is also great walking nearby including to Twin Peaks and other local parks. The suite was just what we were looking for, well furnished inside and out and access to the hot tub was a nice plus. Dan & Kristoffer were great hosts and communication before, during and after our stay was exemplary. We'll certainly be back, thanks again guys. Steve & Paul

Wunderbarer Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt unter der Wohnung der Eigentümer. Sie ist schön möbliert, sauber, grosszügig geschnitten und sehr gut unterhalten. Die Küche reicht für das Zubereiten eines Frühstücks. Der Garten ist traumhaft und der Whirlpool ein besonderes Highlight. Die Wohnung ist für Ausflüge nach San Francisco gut gelegen. Zu Fuss erreicht man bestens das Tram. Einziger kleiner Nachteil: die Wohnung verfügt über keinen Parkplatz. Der Kontakt zu Kristoffer und Dan war immer prompt und zuverlässig. Wir würden die Wohnung wieder buchen und unseren Freunden empfehlen. Vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt!

Great location for urban hiking

  • 5 of 5

This location is ideal as it is a short walk to Castro with all of its restaurants and liveliness or a slightly longer walk to Haight-Ashbury or Mission district. All kinds of wonderful restaurants and friendly people. The accommodations are wonderful and have a spa like vibe and is better than the pictures. It's a nice quiet area away from the touristic North beach crowd. Easy in and easy out. Highly recommended!
