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
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 :)
We spent a long weekend at Beyond the Palm and it was perfect. The apartment is beautifully appointed and very comfortable for three adults. There is a king size bed that is quite luxurious and comfortable. The hot tub is a special treat - very nice to soak in the warm water after exploring the city. We appreciated the easy directions for the tub - located in a very organized notebook chock full with lots of information about the house, the neighborhood and the city. The location of the home is excellent - it is an easy walk to the heart of the Castro district. We had a lively fun breakfast at Orphan Andy's, great oysters at Anchor Oyster bar, and a friendly wine tasting at Castro Village Wine Co. We also walked to the Mission one evening for dinner which is a bit farther, but a nice walk. When we had questions, we texted the owners and they replied immediately. They were always very kind and helpful. I would recommend Beyond the Palm highly and would love to stay there again soon!
We spent a week at Beyond the Palm and found it to be a great base for exploring San Francisco without a car. It was easy to get there from SFO, and Dan and Kristroffer were super friendly and kindly let us drop our luggage off before the check in time. They also had recommendations for local restaurants and grocery shopping.
The bed was super comfy, so much so that we made a note of the mattress for when it is time to replace ours. The hot tub was fantastic...lots of powerful jets. As mentioned in another review, the kitchen is small. It's great for fixing breakfast and lunch. Normally, I like to save money and make our own dinners, but with all the great restaurants in San Francisco it was a treat to eat out at night.
I would definitely stay here again. It was great to be easy distance to mass transit and still off the main tourist areas.
