Our place is just a block from the bars, restaurants, and shops that make the Castro the best place to live. Also walking distance to transportation that can take you anywhere in the city.

The space

Our space is in the heart of the best gay neighborhood on the planet - The Castro! We have a cozy, private bedroom in the front of our home just waiting for guests. The room has a twin bed and a trundle, so it can accommodate two guests. There is also a small closet for storage and luggage. Right now the room is our comic book/reading room. So if you like comics and pop culture, then the room is a definite plus for you!

Other things to note

I share the home with my partner and our two chihuahuas. The dogs are well behaved and we keep them from guests, but we suggest that any guests be dog friendly.

I had a wonderful experience staying with James. The location is fantastic for visiting the Castro, the Mission, and the Haight. 16th St BART, Tartine, Delores Park, and bars are the perfect distance - close enough to be convenient, not so close that you hear them at night. James was very communicative and kind. I would not hesitate to stay again :)

I went to san francisco alone for vacation. I felt safe staying with james in a new area. I explored and toured san fran including the golden gate bridge, alcatraz, nightlife, etc. The castro is easy to navigate ( and i suck at times). James answeres all my questions i jad during my stay via the air b and b app in an attentive amd clear fashion. He helped me woth directions to his house. I recommend staying om the castro by james!

This place is in a very convenient location, the hosts were all you'd hope for. Thank you! Some reviewers have commented about the street noise, several referred to "party" neighborhood. That wasn't the issue for me. I've lived downtown and urban, but the volume of the garbage trucks, motorcycles and traffic was more than any where I've been.

James was exceptionally helpful and very nice, the accommodations were immaculate and just 2 Blocks away from the heart of Castro. What's more to ask for. I will definitely stay here again! Don't hesitate unless you don't like being in the midst of all the fun.

Great value for the price, located literally a couple blocks away from the Castro and 18th street intersection right by Castro theater. Incredible shops, bars and places to eat near by! Also very friendly and accommodating host.

Highly recommended for a stay in The Castro! James is a lovely host! Our room was in the front giving us a great view of 18th st. The apartment is seconds from bars, restaurants, coffee shops and the heart of The Castro! Since this apartment is in The Castro and in the front facing the street, there is city street noises. It's a party town! So don't expect the suburbs when you're in a city. Despite that my friend and I slept very well! Everything was very clean and tidy! James made us coffee in the morning and helped direct us to off beaten places to see. He even helped us take our baggage down! I will definitely be back when I visit town!

James' place is as nice and clean as it looks in pictures. They were ready to let me in upon my arrival, and from there everything went as smoothly as my arrival. The bed is very comfy and clean, the room is neat and tidy, and James is a great host.

I'm originally from Ohio and I've lived in San Francisco close to a decade. I live with my partner and our two dogs. While I work as an editor to make money, my real passion is in poetry. I've published my work in several journals. Love reading, love writing. Especially love comics books and horror movies. Anything pop culture will get me talking.
