Come be our temporary roommate in our lovely Edwardian flat in the Castro. Cozy room with comfortable queen-sized bed, room darkening curtains, desk workspace, full-length mirror, and closet space with hangers. 10 minute walk from downtown Castro and the MUNI Metro station (short train ride to Union Square).

The space

Your room is a guest room in a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom flat located on the second floor of a three floor Edwardian home. This house was built over a century ago and many original details remain, adding to its charm. I live here with my partner Greg, our particularly mellow 4 month old baby Kieran and our two very cuddly and friendly Siberian cats (who also happen to be hypoallergenic).

Guest access

In addition to your room, you will have access to:

- Fast wi-fi

- A clean bathroom with a clawfoot tub and rainfall shower head

- A clean, well-equipped, sunny kitchen with a view of Twin Peaks and Sutro Tower. We cook often so we have everything you need to cook a good meal. You are welcome to make yourself at home in the kitchen.

- In-unit washer/dryer

- Back deck and backyard

Interaction with guests

We love to get to know our guests and help them make the most of their time in SF. We've lived in SF for over five years (and Greg is a bay area native) so we know a few things about the ins and outs of the city, which we're happy to share with you. However, if you prefer to keep to yourself, we totally understand.

Other things to note

This room faces Market St, which can be busy during waking hours. A double-paned window helps to dampen the noise, but some noise is still audible. I provide an air filter (which makes a soothing fan noise) and ear plugs. White noise machine available upon request.

We are registered to host with the city of San Francisco - our listing number is STR-0001665.

These guys give a proper Airbnb experience. Genuine spare room in a family home. Lovely family, very helpful and welcoming. Lovely (and very fluffy) cat. (I should add the cat is banned from the airbnb room!) Big comfy bed. The place is immaculately clean, especially the bathroom. Just make sure you know how to turn the shower on before you get in - the tap had me bamboozled! Highly recommended.

This was a perfect spot for my work trip! Unfortunately did not have a lot of time outside of work to explore, but when I did this location was close enough to all of the city offerings but tucked away enough to still be quiet.

Kayla's home and room are just as advertised. The bed was extremely comfortable, communication was great, and they gave me a couple of good recommendations for places to go check out some live music on Sunday night. The scenery is awesome too! Great place, Kayla and Greg were very friendly. I would definitely recommend their home to others.

Kayla & Greg were super cool, interesting, gracious and fantastic hosts! They set me up with a place to practice yoga and helped me feel totally at home. Everything was tops: location, amenities, the MOST comfortable bed, blackout curtains etc. Ideal spot for business travel- I slept great! Highly recommend staying at this sweet place right in the Castro.

The house and the room were amazing. Kayla is the best host I ever met. The decorations are beautiful and you will enjoy your stay. The neighborhood is really nice. I like how close it's to Twin Peaks, which offer wonderful view to the city and the ocean.

Everything about this trip was great! So fun to check out the San Francisco neighborhoods outside of the tourist hot spots. I found the room and common areas perfectly suited me. Location is near the Castro, but within walking distance of the Mission and neighborhoods. Greg let me know if I'd be headed up or downhill; I would not have thought about that otherwise. Kayla is a great communicator and the instructions for arrival and the rest of the stay were well done and clear. Thanks!

Kayla's place is great. They currently have a newborn but the baby is incredibly quiet and well behaved. You wouldn't know there was a baby unless they told you!
