This incredibly elegant 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment is located on the top of San Francisco's fashionable Nob Hill which is just a 10 minute walk to The Moscone Center (For Conventions) and Union Square. The location could not be better. The apartment is in an elegant 3 floor building called HARKKA which has been completely renovated.

Two of the bedrooms open onto a private courtyard garden. The kitchen is very contemporary with a fabulous stainless steel counter top, and all the appliances are stainless steel including the oven, the Bosch Dishwasher and the Sub Zero refrigerator. The kitchen opens onto a garden area with staghorn ferns and a gas BBQ.

Great location. Nice flat. Rude and Nosey Owner.

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: May 7, 2013

Friday we arrived for a weekend bachelorette party picked up the key and settled in. There were 9 of us staying in the flat (which she agreed to before we even arrived) and Friday/Friday Night we had a great time without any problems.

Saturday we woke up to get ready for our limo ride through Sonoma Wine Country for the day...as we're getting ready we hear a knock at the door...it's the owner. The Maid of Honor answered the door since she booked the flat. We were immediately scolded for "breaking the rules". What rules we all wondered..well she told us "the recycling and trash has be done like this, and no access to the rooftop garden after 9PM, if you want to smoke you have to stand across the street one the sidewalk, and no visitors, and no parties". We all apologized for going on the roof after 9PM on Friday night and said it wouldn't happen again and thought that would be the end. Instead she stood there talking for another 45 minutes when she knew we had to be out the door by 10. She warned us of the "weirdos" in SF who would try to break in and "screw" us. She also warned us that the fire department across the street was desperate for money and if we did anything remotely "crazy" they would bust in to check on us and charge us...uhm ok?

She left us to get ready but little did we know she was outside grilling our limo driver about where we were going, how many of us there were, what time we would be back...you get the point.

So Saturday while we were gone she took the opportunity to move herself into the empty flat above us to basically spy on us the whole weekend. This included lurking around the property during the day, knocking on the doors to tell us to "quiet down" and she even went so far as to say "the other tenants" were going to call the police. There were NO other tenants besides us (and her spying on us).

Total buzzkill for 9 almost-30 year olds on a bachelorette weekend vacation just having a good time. We were very respectful, didn't break or ruin anything and always responded to her requests politely but she'd always come back to complain about something else.

Bottom line it was like we stayed at our grandma's house all weekend and got watched over and scolded constantly. Not fun. If you are under 40 STAY AWAY from this property because my guess is you will be harassed your entire stay.

Rules should be posted in the flat but something tells me the rules vary depending on who your group is.

Happy at Harkka!

Our family recently spent four days at Harkka. We were a group of 7 and squeezed 2 onto a foldout futon in one of the bedrooms but it worked. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking meals at "home" as it gave us more time to enjoy our family. We were able to walk to downhill to Chinatown with a brisk walk back up to work off the dim sum! We were able to meet Patricia, the owner, who made us feel like instant friends! Check in and out was flawless and we feel we we received full value plus for our rental fee.

Great large sunny apartment in the heart of San Francisco

Great large apartment located in the heart of San Francisco. Very chicly decorated with a huge kitchen, nice garden and lovely roof deck. The owner, Patricia, is welcoming, very accommodating, and has compiled an extensive list of hot spots in town to aid your visit. Apartment is across the street from a bus stop, and taxis are also easy to flag or call, so a car isn't necessary, which is great considering the difficulty of finding parking anywhere in SF. That said, street parking on the block is easier than most streets. Highly recommended!
