My husband and I and our pup stayed in the apartment for a week over the Thanksgiving holidays. After we resolved some communication issues with the owner regarding our assigned parking space, our week was dilemma-free. On foot, the apartment is convenient to the great restaurants and shops in North Beach and to the rest of San Francisco by car. We parked our car for the week and used Uber for all of our road trips. It was safe, efficient and inexpensive and eliminated the worries about driving and parking in an unfamiliar city. The apartment
is simply but tastefully decorated and is very clean. This was the 7th VRBO of our extended road trip and was by far the cleanest. And the view is wonderful. The only downsides: It's a hilly neighborhood. If you have cardiac or respiratory issues, these may detract from your enjoyment of the area. There is no "green space" right outside your door. If your pet is with you, the walk to the nearest park is several blocks away. Finally, the alleyway leading to the apartment needs better nighttime lighting.
