Location Location Location!!!

Beautiful and HUGE 1 bedroom apartment. Steps from EVERYTHING. Luxurious amenities and sleeps up to 4 people.

This gorgeous and spacious 1 bedroom apartment is located in The Castro neighborhood of San Francisco. The garden apartment is part of a large Edwardian home that has been renovated with every attention to detail. Crystal doorknobs with brass accents, period glass light fixtures, Berber carpeting and crown molding are just a part of the beauty of this incredible 1908 property.

The apartment has been tastefully decorated and furnished by a professional interior designer and features a King sized bed with memory foam pillowtop, Egyptian Cotton sheets and linens and down comforters. Beautiful artwork, some original, accents the walls and brings a modern feel to the space.

A living room with Queen sized pull out memory foam sofa bed is amazingly comfortable and cozy. The entertainment center includes a DVD player, CD and Stereo System, DVD library and Cable TV with premium channels. Adjacent to the living room is a large dining room area that also can be used as a workspace for guests traveling on business. High speed wireless internet (20mbps) is provided and works throughout the apartment.

The brand new full kitchen with LG appliances, full sized washer dryer and granite counters features Calphalon cookware and Wusthöf cutlery for your culinary creations as well as beautiful china, glassware and silverware located in the gorgeous glass kitchen cabinets. Toaster, blender and Coffee Maker along with other basic essentials are all provided to make sure that you are never without.

A rain shower head is the pampered feeling you want when getting into the stunning fully tiled shower. After stepping out, surround yourself in fluffy 100% Egyptian Cotton Towels or throw on your extra plush cotton robe and make your way out of the double french doors onto the properties beautiful landscaped patio. Relax with a glass of wine or champagne in the rich chocolate colored wicker patio furniture with overstuffed cushions for your comfort. Enjoy the new glass and stone fire/table or maybe make your way over to the gazebo and submerge yourself in the Extra Large 8 person Hot Tub and let the jets and heat soothe away a full day of shopping and sightseeing.

A short walk brings you just about anywhere you want to go!!! You are half a block off Market Street and just a few short blocks from Castro Street where you can catch the famous F street car to Union Square, The Embarcadero, Ferry Building and Fisherman's Wharf or take the subway from Castro Street to anywhere you want to go. Should you decide to walk in the opposite direction....a short 10 minute walk will take you to The Haight Ashbury with it's vintage clothing shops, eclectic restaurants and nightlife, hippies and street musicians. Steps away is Golden Gate Park and The Pan Handle.

San Francisco is world renowned for it's restaurants and you will not be disappointed with the amount of options within walking distance from your door. Also, there is a pamphlet with tips and suggestions on dining, attractions, delivery food services, gyms, shopping and other services that is provided to you in your room at your time of check in.

Although you do not really need a car to enjoy San Francisco, should you decide to drive there is free street parking available. Transportation to and from Bay Area Airports is simple on the BART, however private transportation via a car service can be arranged from SFO International Airport, San Jose International Airport and Oakland International Airport for an additional fee. Simply inquire at your time of booking about these features and costs.

Experience your own private oasis in the heart of San Francisco and see how truly luxurious and relaxing life can be....Beyond The Palm.

About The Owner

Hi! Kristoffer and Dan here and we want to welcome you. Dan works in Marketing and Kristoffer is an actor on Broadway and television. Having lived in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and abroad, we have traveled to many countries and love meeting new people. We have always enjoyed the experience of staying in a home or apartment versus a hotel when we travel because of the ability to experience a city more fully. We have always stayed in beautiful apartments or homes with luxurious amenities and felt it was important to offer the same to those travelers who came to stay with us. We love to experience restaurants, bars, museums and everything a city has to offer and have many many wonderful suggestions for you when you come to stay!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011

Why The Owner chose San Francisco

We chose to buy this property because of its central location and ease of getting just about anywhere you want to go in the city in minutes. The beauty of the neighborhood and homes that surround was also a selling point to us. We love San Francisco and the fact that in 10 minutes you can be at the beach, waterfront, luxury shopping, a concert, running in Golden Gate Park or relaxing in a sidewalk cafe in any of the cities thriving and vibrant neighborhoods. Napa, Sonoma and wine country are just an hour drive away and you can be skiing the slopes near Tahoe all day long and back home in time for dinner!

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is quite special in that it is extremely private and lush in its surroundings. The garden and gazebo, private hot tub and top notch amenities keep it in a class all its own. Walking to Cafe Flore on Market Street for a morning coffee and pastry or relaxing by the fire table with a glass of wine at night before slipping into the hot tub for a soak are just a few of the amazing things at your disposal when you stay Beyond The Palm.

Impeccable apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

As a former resident of SF and frequent traveler, it's challenging to find a vacation stay that is modern, clean, private, in a great location and with great owners. Beyond the Palm is all of that and more - Kristoffer and Dan work hard to make their residence welcoming and it shows. Coupled with its great location - steps from the Castro and public transport and a great jumping point for a trip to the wine country, Beyond the Palms is hard to beat. Hope to stay again soon!

Immaculate apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in excellent condition. I was travelling with my two teenagers, it was nice to have a full size washer and dryer. Having a large garden and hot tub is a rarity in San Francisco. The hot tub is top of the line, and the gardens are a beautiful. There is also a fireplace in the center of the outdoor seating area. If you will use Zipcar, there are several locations close to the apartment. It was a 40 minute drive to Muir Woods, and 45 minutes to Palo Alto. We highly recommend this apartment.

We had a wonderful stay at Beyond the Palm! The apartment itself is very clean and comfortable and it was really handy having a washer and dryer while traveling. We also enjoyed the proximity to Castro St and it's restaurants/transportation to the rest of the city. But best of all was the beautiful outdoor space...the garden and hot tub could have been a vacation in and of itself! We enjoyed the beautiful plantings and unseasonably warm weather. Our son lives close by and we hope to enjoy future stays at Beyond the Palm...thanks for a great visit!

Very nice central location

We really enjoyed the location of the property. It was very clean and neat and well put together. The hot tub in the private front yard area was a treat.

Fantastic.

Comfortable, well located, great bed. And the hot tub is a huge, restful benefit in a beautiful private garden. All: we recommend CityPass, as well as Frances and Eiji restaurants nearby.

Perfect Christmas Present

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Beyond the Palm and it could not have been a better choice. The apartment is conveniently located and well appointed for three adults. We loved be able to escape the typical tourist areas and enjoy the peace of an established neighborhood. The apartment is so close to transit, making it easy to travel to all the hot spots we wanted to visit before coming home to relax and unwind in the hot tub before walking down to Castro for a delicious dinner. For the nights we wanted to stay in, the guys had a stack of DVDs for us to choose from and a selection of takeout recommendations. It really was just a fantastic get away. Thank you for sharing your home with us :)
