What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Castro San Francisco

The annex has a garden, so you can play soccer outside, and in summer you can have picnics and family gatherings outside, and I love my neighborhood.

In my neighborhood everything is just a few blocks away. My favorit coffee shop is Petes and it is only a few blocks away. As a family we like to go to Lake Tahoe.

I like the nearby OnePlus grocery store best. The owner is warm and generous and the goods are very affordable. We all like to shop there.

Quietude and right next to nature preserve yet walkable to some shopping. Some unique shops and cafes nearby and easy access to downtown by subway.
