The studio is located in the heart of Filbert Steps, a wooden stairway going through an amazing tropical garden: you will be surrounded by flowers, trees and parrots. The studio is well-equipped and the view of the bay is stunning. It is very close to the italian district, with a lot of bars and restaurants. Finally Caroline and Tom were very responsive and helpful during our stay. My wife and I started our relocation here, and it was perfect to feel at home from day 1.

Response from Tom:
Host confirmed before checking calendar because guest asked for the house with two days notice and needed a quick response. There was a conflict of dates.

Tom's place is great. The location is fantastic. Perfect for exploring the city. Mid way between the city centre and Fisher Mans Wharf. It's right on the Filbert Steps which is a local landmark in itself and very beautiful. The crowning glory is the roof top patio which offers a stunning view over the Bay.

I’m very happy I chose Tom and Caroline’s studio for my trip. They were incredibly accommodating and flexible about arrival and departure times and made sure I felt at home from the beginning, leaving some nice welcome gifts for me. The studio was exactly as described on airbnb. It was clean and had everything I needed for a longer stay. I was on a business trip and was able to use it as a home office, as it was quiet and had good internet connection. The house is in a good neighborhood. There are many things to see literally a couple of blocks away – the Coit Tower with spectacular views of the Bay, Levi’s Plaza, and The Embarcadero. For the food and nightlife, it is hard to find better area than the restaurants around Washington Square Park in the North Beach, just over the hill from the house. Good value and all expectations met. Caroline and Tom, thanks again!

Wonderful cozy studio, perfect for 1 or 2 persons, small, but there's everything you need. The Filbert steps are beautiful and good exercise too. Thank you again Tom and Caroline!
