Beautiful, clean, and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience couldn't have been better. First, this apartment was beautiful. It was spotless. Linens were all very nice. Great location. Washer and dryer were so nice to have. Best of all, the proprietor - Jack responded to all of our inquires almost instantly. You don't get that kind of service at any hotel. Thanks for making our San Fran stay so great!!!

Exactly as advertised. OK, there were more cut flowers in the photos but we weren't expecting that!

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very comfortable and exactly what we needed. In the end we didn't use the kitchen at all. Too many choices in the neighbourhood for a nice breakfast (and we weren't planning on cooking big meals). The information provided answered most questions before we could even ask them. Google provided the rest.

We LOVED the location and spent lots of time exploring but it was also a breeze to get anywhere we wanted to go.

The building was really quiet. The unit was very clean and well-stocked with various supplies.

Only quibbles? Towel hooks! Only 2 in the entire bathroom. Even 2 more would be very useful.

And a mirror. Nothing but the medicine cabinet in the bathroom. Found myself trying to improvise with the reflection off the television.

Overall? Very happy we chose to stay there.

Comfort, convenient and colorful!

  • 5 of 5

Most impressive aside from the comfort of this flat, was the consistent and rapid response to my inquiries or questions of the owner. Usually, within the hour I would hear back from Jack, which promotes a sense of security when traveling in a new city. We found everything we needed including nice neighbors (when I locked myself out at one point), close transportation to major city sites and a great market within walking distance. The only small items missing were a colander for draining the pasta and maybe a standing towel rack for use after showers, which might be placed in the small room/closet with the desk. The kitchen is very well appointed and has the latest model appliances. The beds and linens were lovely and the instructions for use of everything, very clear.

Thank you,

Clean, Comfortable, and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed staying in this place! The location is a 5-10 minute walk from the main area of Castro District, where there are plenty of restaurants and bars. Nearby that area is a MUNI underground subway station, which is also a 5-10 minute walk. The location is extremely convenient and easily accesses the rest of the city. The apartment itself is on a quiet street, not disturbed by any street noise. The photos of the apartment's interior are completely accurate, and the room is even more impressive in person. It is extremely clean and tidy, and the bed is large and comfortable. Despite the large size of the bed, there is still plenty of room to walk around in the apartment. The shower is incredibly relaxing and the bathroom is very clean. The kitchen area is stocked very well with utensils and cookware. Despite being located on the third floor, it is a very easy walk up the spacious stairs. I would happily book this place again for my family to stay at.

Beautifully decorated; Great location

  • 4 of 5

The Jewelbox is very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The pictures capture it well and the addition of a sofa in front of the windows is a great option for sitting or reading other than the bed. Location is perfect---not too hilly and close enough to walk to restaurants and shopping but far enough to be quiet. The storm windows make for great noise insulation but not so great for fresh air to cool the room off at night. It cools off very nicely by morning but pretty stuffy and warm coming in after a day of sightseeing. Jack was very responsive to questions and easy to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for that information. Since we're on the 3rd floor, I often leave the front windows slightly open for ventilation even when I'm not there.

Central Location!...Great Accomodations!!!...Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the Castro District was a wonderful experience!!....Our accommodations were perfect and Jack's place has everything you need for your stay!

We didn't have a car and used Lyft for everything which was such a convenience and ended up being a savings as Lyft offers financial incentives to get you signed up ($50 off the first 10 rides). We found Café Mystique at 464 Castro St which prepared excellent breakfast choices...so we visited them 3 times as they were just a short walk away. Mollie Stone's Grocery is also a short walk if you need to stock up on snacks, wine, cheese, etc. Communication with Jack was great and we had no problems with anything in the unit. Bathroom and kitchen facilities were practically brand new. Washer/Dryer was a great help!

When we come back to visit San Francisco again, we will make sure that this unit is of prime consideration.

Nearest Train
0.3 Miles
Castro Station

Located in the heart of San Francisco. This location is perfect for exploring the city. Visitors without cars will find a wide range of transportation options.

San Francisco Muni Lines- underground to Bart, East Bay, downtown, union square, China town, financial district, fisherman's wharf, zoo, is just a few blocks away at Castro and Market St. Bus 24 can take you from Pacific Heights to Noe Valley and beyond. Zip rental cars have several locations near by. Car owners can park on the street or reserve a spot in the building at a nominal fee.

It is located within blocks to the very commercial Castro Center at 18th and Castro, but it is far enough to avoid all the heavy noise and traffic.

Take the K,L,M lines to Union Square, Ferry Building, or Moscone Center.

Take the F train to Fisherman's Wharf.

Other Activities: Farmer's market Wednesdays 4:00-8:00PM near Market St and Noe St.
