Free high speed Wi-Fi is provided. The accommodations are private with en suite bathroom, but the hosts reside in the same building and are able to answer any questions on transport or tourism within the area.
Boasting hardwood floors, high ceilings and period architectural detail, the property boasts an authentic charm. The cosy room is tastefully decorated and features a comfortable queen-size bed, a spacious closet and a high definition TV with a broad array of cable channels. The room has a window for light and fresh air, but does no have a view (if a view is desired please see our other listing).

Guests can enjoy the convenience of a Keurig brand coffee/tea machine with an assortment of complimentary coffee and teas to choose from. The en suite bathroom includes a fully tiled walk-in shower with slate floors (but not a bathtub).
The surrounding area offers a variety of outdoor cafes, diverse bars and historical attractions just a short stroll from the house. The famous Castro Theatre is just a 2-minute walk away, and the Randall Museum can be reached within less than a 15-minute walk. Subways and historic street cars are a block away providing easy access to (and easy retreat from) the CIty's tourist attractions and downtown.

We are back at this Victorian Home for a second time. Our first was a month in San Francisco in September where we rented their full apartment unit on the lower level. This visit was short but we wanted the same location and stayed in the room in the Victorian Home. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and exactly what we needed for our short stay. Anything needed was readily available with a quick email request. The location is perfect for our needs and easily accessible to transportation, restaurants and beautiful walks as desired. We will return and have already recommended to our family and friends.
Clean and Nice room, great hospitallity and a good location. Nearby Metro station and restaurants. Great host, you can just ask anything and they gladly help you. / Jenny and joni
We had a wonderful time in San Francisco and our room at Laurence's lovely house did not disappoint either. It was basically what you see in the pictures, clean, comfortable, roomy, and with everything you could need. The bed is very comfy and there is a lot of storage space. The other perk of this place, aside from Laurence's fabulous hospitality, is its location. Castro is a great area that just gives you a comforting and fun feeling - it has a great atmosphere! It is also very conveniently located to public transport. Thanks to Laurence again for opening up his home to us travellers!
The property is very well located. The room is spacious and with all the needs we needed in our trip. Laurence was very helpful with all the questions about the city. We will definitively come back to San Francisco and we will definitively recommend this property.
Perfect room for a stay in San Francisco in the Castro neigborhood, where finding a place to eat or drink is never difficult . Clean and tastefully decorated room, in a beautiful house; most helpful hosts (Laurence and Nick), who are available when you need them, but don't interfere with your activities if this isn't needed. Some outside noise, but acceptable.
Nick and Laurence’s place in Castro Street is a gorgeous place to spend very comfortable and happy days in SFO. The Victorian style house is situated in a quiet street, just a 5 minute walk away from market street, SFOs main artery. You’ll find nice restaurants (never miss the Burger in Orphan Andy’s or the Superburrito in the Mexican Cantina Zappa in 18th street!), grocery stores and, proceeding further into Castro, a very vivid, exciting neighborhood. The house is simply outstandingly clean, tastefully furnished and calm. The guest room upstairs offers a very comfortable (at least) queen size bed and a private bathroom all for yourself. We found everything in perfect order and again: very clean and proper! The hosts offer you small luxuries such as free coffee and tea from a Keurig machine, ample information material and even reloadable muni passes during your stay. Wow! Unfortunately we hadn’t the chance to meet Nick. Laurence however proved to be the perfect host, very friendly and charming, respectful and always very helpful. We won’t ever forget that someone even dragged a really heavy piece of luggage upstairs that arrived one day late, while we were out. You won’t find it any better. Finally looking for the rub, you could perhaps quote the missing view on the eternally blue californian sky out of the window: The house next door is just a couple of feet across the court. That’s it and it didn’t matter at all. Thanks a lot once again guys, we will be back! Tatjana and Rudolf
Very nice accommodation in a pleasant and safe environment. Room contains everything you need to feel good. The bed is excellent, you sleep fantastically. Everything was very clean our stylish furnished house. Laurence is very helpful, even to communicate with him and Nick in advance was very pleasant and reliable. We felt very at home and enjoyed the stay in Castro 281 and the neighborhood seh. Highly recommended accommodation in SFO.
Sehr schönes Quartier in angenehmer und sicherer Umgebung. Zimmer enthält alles, was man zum Wohlfühlen braucht. Das Bett ist exzellent, man schläft traumhaft. Alles sehr sauber uns stylisch eingerichtetes Haus. Laurence ist sehr hilfsbereit, auch die Kommunikation mit ihm und Nick im Vorfeld war sehr angenehm und verlässlich. Wir fühlten uns sehr Zuhause und haben den Aufenthalt im Castro 281 und die Nachbarschaft seh genossen. Sehr empfehlenswertes Quartier in SFO.
Great room, great host! The bed is just perfect after 16h of plane travel, we slept like babies. The neighboorhood is very friendly and calm. We had a really great time in san francisco!
Highly recommended, the two are great hosts and provide a well during the stay almost daily with new tips and suggestions (discretely via email). The room is clean, nice and practically furnished and offers plenty of storage space. The location is especially great. It is a lively neighborhood with lots of small cafes / bars and restaurants. The public transport network is in 10 min (metro) or 30min (tram) in the center and the harbor.
Thanks again to Nick and Laurence, we love coming back.
Sehr zu empfehlen, die Beiden sind großartige Gastgeber und versorgen einen auch während des Aufenthalts fast täglich mit neuen Tipps und Anregungen (diskret per E-Mail). Das Zimmer ist sauber, sehr schön und praktisch eingerichtet und bietet viel Stauraum. Die Lage ist besonders toll. Es ist ein belebtes Viertel mit vielen kleinen Cafe's/Bars und Restaurants. Mit dem öffentlichen Verkehrsnetz ist man in 10 min(U-Bahn) oder 30min (Strassenbahn) im Zentrum und am Hafen.
Vielen Dank nochmal an Nick und Laurence, wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.
