We loved our stay in San Francisco.
The room was very spacy.
We had a gorgeous view over the city.
Due to our jetlag we saw every sunrise;)
Laurence and Nick were very nice and gave us much privacy.
If we ever come back we would definitely like to stay there again!
The appartment which is located in the attic of their house is fantastic - great view, good bed, clean & tidy and nice bath.
The host Laurence is great - amongst others, he gave good advice on what´s good in SF and the area.
Nick sent daily mails with tips and insights.
Will return to Nick and Laurence next time I´m in SF.
Great place, fantastic unique view over the San Francisco bay, extremely friendly and helpful host! Short, it will lack nothing!

I'd better book fast if I were you!
We will be back!

La experiencia ha sido fantastica.
Thanks Nick and Laurence for your gorgeous advices and your hospitality.
Nice nice to meet you.
Loved our stay in this cool SF artist's garret cum penthouse. It's much bigger than it looks on the photos; it actually takes quite a while to walk from one end of the apartment to the other! The bed is huge and comfy. The jacuzzi splendidly decadent and the view simply stunning.
The open bathroom arrangement is a bit strange, but as the place is so big, it really didn't cause us any problems. There is a shower attachment but as the roof slopes you can't stand up under it.
Our hosts, Nick and Laurence, were welcoming and helpful, and they seem to have thought of pretty much everything. It's a really comfortable place to stay and you feel pretty cool there too, as you lounge around drinking in the view of this fabulous city or sunbathing in front of the open window.
Not sure this place would be great for party animals. There is an expectation that you'll be quiet (being on the top floor and above everyone else). This was fine for us and meant that the whole building was v peaceful and quiet.
We thought the location of this apartment was great. Two mins walk to the Muni (10 mins to downtown from your front door) and historic F line streetcar and, on lots of other transport routes. If you walk a few hundred yards up the hill from the apartment you can get fabulous views from Corona Heights and Buena Vista parks. The Castro is also handy for the Mission, the Haight, painted ladies, Golden Gate Park, Twin Peaks and loads of other things you'll probably want to see.
The Castro was splendidly bonkers, and good fun, and welcoming for straight couples too. It's a far cry from Fisherman's Wharf, but you may just think that that's a good thing.
As already written by our predecessor both hosts couldn´t have been more kind and helpful. They provide as much information as possible in preparation of your trip and also during your stay, though we always had our privacy.
The location is perfect, convenient and calm neighbourhood, however in the middle of Castro with a good transport connection and many restaurants, bars and shops within splitting distance.
The appartment is clean and comfy, and, again, with a breathtaking view.
This room has the most amazing view of SF. The bed was so comfy we were sad to leave
The Castro is a great place to stay for transport links and is much better than downtown if you want to be close to Golden Gate Park and really feel SF.
Nick and Laurence are great hosts and are most helpful and welcoming.
The house is so Charming, five stars plus

Very unique and romantic place with magical view of the city!!! Everything is very special about it: Beautiful interior design where you find Marilyn Monroe smiling at you , comfortable and spacious bed, that will help you to recharge for up coming adventures, big bath tab, where you can warm up after foggy walks on Buena Vista, and of corse breath taking view will be there rather you having a cup of coffee in a morning or enjoying a bottle of wine at night. We fell in love with Attic as much as with neighborhood, full of restaurants, lil shops and famous Castro theater. Laurence is a wonderful host, hospitable and very thoughtful . I would definitely recommend this place for people who are looking for romance and a little bit of magic. Perfect for couples:)
Absolutely fantastic location, room, and host. Couldn't have been more kind or helpful. Heartily recommended.
Also we felt on the whole, with Nick and Laurence well. Going through the narrow spiral staircase up once you have a fantastic view over San Francisco. However, I can the words of a previous Bwertung then that the uninsulated roof represents some impairment. Especially in the morning when trying to shower (it has only the big tub in the attic, not so easy) one notices the lack of heating and it is quite fresh so wet in the tub. Wi-Fi is available and functioning more or less well. The road to Castro Station is very short and the connection to Downtown SF great, either by F-Streetcat-line or by underground Muni are great. We had no car but have bought us this Muni Passports, doing great. Best buy immediately upon arrival at the airport. And from the airport, we let go of a public van from the company "Go Lorries". Is stress free and goes from door to door. All in all a great time. Thanks to Nick and Laurence
Auch wir haben uns im Grossen und Ganzen bei Nick & Laurence wohl gefühlt. Wenn man mal durch die enge Wendeltreppe oben ist hat man einen fantastischen Blick über San Francisco. Allerdings kann ich mich den Worten einer vorherigen Bwertung anschliessend, dass das nicht isolierte Dach eine gewisse Beeinträchtigung darstellt. Vor allem morgens beim Versuch zu duschen (es hat ja nur die grosse Badewanne unter der Dachschräge,gar nicht so einfach) merkt man die fehlende Heizung und es ist doch recht frisch so nass in der Wanne.
Das WLAN ist vorhanden und funktioniert mehr oder weniger gut .
Der Weg zur Castro Station ist sehr kurz und die Anbindung an Downtown SF super, entweder per F-Streetcat-Linie oder per Underground-Muni sind super. Wir hatten kein Auto sondern haben uns dieses Muni-Passports gekauft, geht prima. Am besten gleich bei der Ankunft am Flughafen kaufen. Vom und zum Flughafen haben wir uns von einem Public Van von der Firma "Go Lorries" fahren lassen. Ist stressfrei und geht von Tür zu Tür.
Alles in allem eine tolle Zeit. Danke an Nick & Laurence
