Staying at Ashish's place provided for a wonderful stay and first-time visit to San Francisco. His home is gorgeous, clean, and comfortable. I immediately felt welcome and at home upon arrival. Making the arrangements and checking in were incredibly easy. Even though Ashish was traveling during my stay, he was still very responsive and had a friend available to answer any questions in his absence. However, his roommates were also incredibly warm and welcoming and helped me by providing many suggestions and helping me to navigate the city. Though I didn't spend too much time in the house during the day, waking up to the sunset over the San Francisco skyline every morning was an amazing way to start each day. The space was also a great area to come back to and relax for a bit whenever I needed a break and to recharge. I also appreciated being able to have full use of the kitchen and laundry during my stay. In terms of location, I don't think you can beat this. The home is centrally located to some of San Francisco's best neighborhoods, and getting downtown is super easy on the Muni just down the street. I would definitely stay here again!

Ashish's place was a welcome respite from the city. Very comfortable and clean, even though I shared some of the space with an older dog (who was very well-behaved!) I was mostly there to sleep and clean myself up in the morning, and the place worked nicely for that.

Amazing location near the metro line and at the heart of the Castro. Comfy bed, amazing view waking up to the sunrise. Breakfast was included which was a nice perk! Overall had a great stay.

Had a wonderful 5 nights stay here. Didn't meet the host, ha wasactually out of town. Like everyone said, the futon is really confortable! Clean place, even had my bed changed in the middle of my stay. Great location, every method of transportation is near, and The Queen of Castro is actually really well located! Loved my stay!

Thank you for looking at our listing. We are a household of professionals, laid back and easy going. We use the proceeds from airbnb to do volunteer work around the world primarily teaching English.

We love to travel, go to the theatre and museums and good food and company. We are both spiritual but not religious. We think of our guests as friends in our home and we try to treat them that way. We do have an active social life and you may meet some of our friends.

We are big foodies, love the theatre, and movies. We are long-term residents of san francisco and are involved with various community organizations and can direct you to restaurants or things to do.

From March 10th to May 29th Ken and Ash will be in India volunteering teaching English. Your onsite hosts will be Erin and Byron along with Paul the Dog. Our friend Michael will be handling all the electronic and phone communications.
