Reviews of this property
Before we arrived Laurence and Nick were really communicative and friendly. Once we arrived they continued to send us daily emails with ideas of things to do during our stay Laurence was very kind and helpful. The situation is excellent for buses and the MUNI (underground to Brits) - just a few minutes walk away. Easy to get downtown. Castro is a friendly area, which is lively, attractive and feels safe. Lots of places to eat.
We stayed on the top floor with a great view of the City and the bay in the distance, particularly attractive at night. The accommodation had a very comfortable double bed, with high quality linen. There was a coffee machine and a generous supply of coffees, peppermint tea, toiletries and a fridge. There was a microwave with cutlery if you wanted to make something simple to eat. Plenty of hangers and space for clothes. There was a nice seating area by the bay windows with three chairs.
It is a very large attack space with the bath/toilet at one end, just curtained off. There was not a dedicated shower so you use the shower attachment in the bath under a slanting roof.
Maybe time to upgrade the carpet guys?
If you are looking for a characterful place to stay we highly recommend it
We loved to stay at Nick and Laurence place. The appertment really looks like on the pictures. We loved the view. It's a very safety district and nice to go out. We wanna come back if we visit San Francisco again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Laurence place. We loved the neighborhood, there are lots of nice restaurants and cafes and people are super nice. Laurence was very helpful - we can definitely recommend this place!
We were thrilled with our attic accommodation: spacious, cosy and with a breathtaking view on the city. From the living room we enjoyed both the sunrise and the sunset, at night we saw the twinkling lights of the city and the stars and we witnessed the "blood moon", the spectacular full moon with lunar eclipse. The place provided everything you need to feel at home. The energies of the room were light and harmonious. Laurence gave us a warm welcome, helped us carrying the luggage upstairs and helped us settling in. During the stay he was a caring host. Nick informed us about activities in the neighborhood by emails which was very helpful, too. We stayed there for 2 weeks and we are thinking about coming back next year!
Thank you, Laurence and Nick!

Thank you to Laurence and Nick for making the attic room available. The room is exactly as described, and as shown in the photos. It is located just up from the Castro subway station and has easy access to busses, the street cars, and the subway.
Laurence showed us a folder full of information about the location, and Nick sent us regular emails with suggestion of things to do. We had some rain during our stay and Nick gave us more indoor suggestions.
Castro has its own night life, but it's easy to head down to Powell for theatres and more mainstream activities. There is easy access to the zoo on the subway, the bus which stops almost outside goes down Divisidero where there are quieter bars, and also The Independent which is a live music venue. Check out it's listings.
Check out was totally flexible, we had an early flight so left without saying goodbye and thanks to our hosts.
The ideal place to enjoy peaceful days in San Francisco and if you want it not so quiet you are exactly right. The perfect place to discover the city. Really nice and helpfull hosts. We enjoyed our stay very much. Everythings what exactely as shown in the images.
Der ideale Ort um ruhige Tage in San Francisco zu geniessen und falls man es nicht so ruhig haben möchte ist man auch genau richtig. The perfekt place to discover the city. Really nice und helpfull hosts. We enjoyed our stay very much. Everythings was exactely as shown in the images.
The hotel met our expectations in full. The hosts surpassed them even. An absolutely recommendable hotel with stunning views of San Francisco.
Die Unterkunft entsprach im vollem Umfang unseren Erwartungen. Die Gastgeber übertrafen diese sogar . Eine absolut empfehlenswerte Unterkunft mit einem Traumblick auf San Francisco.
A beautiful space in a beautiful house in a nice neighborhood: the ideal place to enjoy San Francisco on foot or by public transport. The view of the city is a real gift. Discretion and efficiency of our guests participated in the pleasure of living some days in this city.
Un très bel espace dans une maison magnifique située dans un quartier agréable: l'idéal pour profiter de San Francisco à pieds ou en transports publics. La vue sur la ville est un véritable cadeau. La discrétion et l'efficacité de nos hôtes ont participé au plaisir de vivre quelques jours dans cette ville.
Everything was fine. Nick and Laurence are very kind hosts. They helped me with everything I need to know. The attic is exactly as shown in the pictures, perhaps even bigger as you would imagine. The big window provides you a great view over san francisco. The appartment is located in a very nice neighbourhood. No worries about taking a walk after dark.
I enjoyed seven beautiful pre-christmas days at their place. Don't be afraid about staying in an attic in "winter time", the heater makes it comfortable warm.
Laurence and Nick are both very nice and friendly. They have a binder with sooooo much information about the neighbourhood and the city, it's amazing. Laurence explained everything to us (transports, places to eat, things to visit, etc). Amazing hosts.
The room is huge. Wonderful view over the city. There's even good coffee and tea in the room. The bath is not very practical if you prefer showers but they told us so beforehand, we could have changed our room for another one if we wanted to.
Location is perfect too, a couple of minutes walking from the metro station. The neighbourhood is very lively.
We really enjoyed our stay! Thanks!!!
