Really loved this place -- stayed with my Grandmother, brother and sister-in-law, nephew, wife and two kids and we all fit comfortably. Most of our activities were spent out and about -- easy because of the great location in the heart of the Castro neighborhood -- but when we needed to nap or have breakfast or just hang out, we were comfortable and relaxed in this well-appointed but kid friendly home. We have family nearby and plan to continue using the Castro guest house whenever we find our way out west. Thanks to Myles and co. for a great home away from home!

My friends and I spent 4 nights at the SF Castro Guest Accommodations. Myles welcoming was warmth and friendly. The house was spacious enough for our party of eight and, even if the kitchen was a tiny bit smaller than expected, it allowed us to gather at night in the nicest way possible! We really felt at home during our stay.

My husband and I spent two great days at the Summit House B and B, in the midst of a 9 day trip up down the coast to Monterey and Carmel, and up to Napa/Sonoma and the seashore. The time we spent in San Francisco was just wonderful! Matt and Myles are terrific hosts - welcoming and friendly but unobtrusive and relaxed. The room was spotless, food was excellent (all of the comments below about Myles' scones are spot on, they were fantastic!). The advice they gave us on logistics, what to see, where to eat, plus history of San Francisco and areas around were fantastic. We were there at the same time as the America's Cup races - they gave us tips on what to see and how to get there that would avoid the crowds - the kind of insider knowledge that can make or break a travel experience. And the view! You truly are on top of the city in this home. Out our bedroom window we could see the bay - out the living room window was the most stunning view of the Pacific. Incredible! This was such a different - and much better - experience than staying at some cookie cutter hotel. Wonderful place, wonderful hosts. By all means, stay here when you're in San Francisco.

My husband and myself stayed with Myles and Matt for five nights at the start of our first ever visit to California. They were wonderful hosts - so friendly and helpful. They picked us up from the station when we arrived, and made sure we had all the information we needed to really get the best out of our time in San Francisco. Our room was lovely and comfortable, and full of interesting pictures, books etc. I loved the huge Wizard of Oz wall hanging. Breakfasts offered plenty of choice, and one day Myles baked fresh scones for us, which he served with his homemade blackberry jam - the best scones I've ever tasted. Wonderful views from the house, but VERY steep climb up the hill to get those views - you do need to be reasonably fit if you're planning on walking to and from the station, but once you get to the station access downtown is quick and easy, and there are buses you can get from closer to the house without that climb. All in all, a wonderful place to stay - very comfortable with great hosts, and definitely much nicer than a bland chain hotel.

We spent one week as the only guests at Summit House. Myles and Matthew are wonderful persons. Everyday, Myles prepared a delicious surprise for us at the breakfast. Once, it was a pie of raspberries picked from the house garden. While we eat the breakfast, Matthew researched in maps, internet and in the newspapers, tips to orient us in ours tours and inform us the local news, making us to feel as local persons. It was friendly chats at the sound of very good jazz (they knew that we like this kind of music). To be a host of people that take care of you is totally different of be a hotel guest. We left San Francisco driving to LA through Hwy 1 at the cost. We did a stop at Morro Bay, a very nice town, indication of Myles and Matthew. We feel that we left friends at San Francisco.

My wife and I recently stayed for 4 days at the Summit House on our honeymoon and enjoyed our stay immensely. Matthew and Myles are very welcoming and helpful with directions to sites in the city. They have an incredible knowledge of places to go, restaurants in the city and can give history and many areas of SF. Myles is also a very proficient baker who has great scones and pastries with breakfast. Book with confidence and enjoy yourself at Summit house. I will recommend this B+B to all!!!

Myles and Matthew are the quintessential great hosts of the B&B world: from arrival to departure, I was made to feel that I was more of a personal guest at their home of SF Summit House! My room was very clean and orderly and the bathroom, complement the latter. It was nice to be able to leave my toiletries on the vanity for easy access later that evening or next day. I always felt that my privacy was never compromised and also felt that I could go into the living room area and strike up conversation with the hosts. I was given great directions (and provided with a map) to get to the Bart station at Balboa in order to get into downtown SF! If you can request it of Myles (which I'm sure you could), you must ask him to make his breakfast scones...OUT OF THIS WORLD!! The only word of advise that I have as far as finding SF Summit House is that you need to keep hugging right on Summit Ave in order to find 310 on the right hand side. It's fantastically situated, though. You have a pretty impressive view of the city below! Well done, Myles and Matt!! Keep it up! You guys are awesome!

We had a very pleasant stay in a very comfortable location. We left our hosts feeling we had stayed with friends rather than in a B&B. Every thing was excellent. The hosts went out of our way to make us comfortable. I have to say the location is a bit of a walk to the BARt system. The walk back up the hill is not recommended. Our hosts were generous with rides to compensate and there is a frequent bus from BART terminal to one block from their house. We have one suggestion. Bring a compass and warm cloths. You will be staying truly on a summit. That means constant wind but with beautiful views. The minute you step out the door you lose track of direction with all roads leading away from the summit. You will enjoy this visit..

stayed in August 2012. When the fog subsides the views from house are hard to beat. The hosts are ever so attentive and breakfast absolutely lovely. if I come back to San Francisco this is where I will want to stay.

This place was a real find, and Myles and Matthew are the best hosts I experienced on my recent trip to the USA. I felt really welcome and cared for; travelling as a woman on her own. They sent me detailed instructions on how to get to their B&B and helped me plan my sightseeing and dining - even printing out maps, etc. The location is "high on a hill" so very peaceful, with a short commute via BART to the city centre. Thanks guys!

We had a great time at Summit House in SF, thank you for your hospitality! I appreciated a pool table, although I haven't managed to play during our stay.

We found this online and thought we would give it a go. Of course we had a car and so the location was fine and there was loads of free street parking. The view in all directions is awesome. It's like staying in a SF eclectic museum, but that everything there is designed to add to the guests SF experience. After weeks of traveling it was the first place where we felt we could really relax, made easy by the friendly hospitality of Matthew and Myles. They went the extra mile by making great suggestions on eating spots, things to see and transport options. There we so many things that we would not have discovered if it wasn't for them sitting with us at the breakfast table going over the map. Strongly recommended. We'll be back!

My persistence paid off as I diligently searched for overnight accommodations in San Francisco that would be comfortable, provide easy access from the freeway, be in a lovely location, and offer exceptional amenities without taxing our budget. I located the SF Summit House displaying one exquisitely decorated room on the web site. Immediately I called and spoke to Myles hoping that my husband and I would strike it lucky and the evening we required, May 7th 2012, would be available. It was and all arrangements and directions were promptly confirmed. On arrival, we were awed by the beauty of the location atop Merced Heights. Off in the distance we could see the Pacific Ocean, Mount Tamalpais, and San Francisco Bay. Our hosts, Matthew and Myles, greeted us warmly on our late evening arrival. They helped us with our luggage and offered us beverages and snacks while we settled into our lovely room. The Summit House is tastefully and exquisitely furnished with eclectic and fascinating art objects, furnishings, books, memorabilia, and collector items. We relaxed in the large front room on comfy couches watching through the bay window the fog roll in eclipsing the last of the sunlight. It was both relaxing and romantic, a gorgeous setting. We elected to eat out at a nearby Italian restaurant and on our return we talked for ages with our hosts who are an assiduous source of information and fascinating, intelligent conversation. Our queen bed with the lovely soft pillows beckoned and we drifted off to sleep with a cool breeze coming in the through the open window. In the morning we enjoyed our continental breakfast in the charming breakfast room and were overwhelmed by the choices provided: hot and cold cereals, fruit, yogurt, bagels, cream cheese, jellies, orange and apple juice, coffee and tea. What a wonderful stay and ideal hosts! Arona and Jim Henderson- Blaine, WA 98230
