An Absolute Treasure of an Apartment!!!......None of Us Wanted to Leave!!!

From the time we stepped through the door until the time we left, we were amazed at how much we felt at home in this beautiful, quaint, extremely well-cared for and well-equipped apartment!!! To say that it's an apartment is not really doing it justice, however, since it's more like a huge home....so huge that at times, we had to search to round up one person or another in our family group of seven. There are actually two levels to this place, and that top level is huge and light-filled, beautifully decorated and furnished, and even has a round bed in the turret section of the building. The main area has a living area off the main bedroom, two additional bedrooms, an office area with computer, a large wonderful kitchen for cooking amazing meals, and a very elegant dining room which offered great ambiance for our stay-at-home meals. Everything you need is in the apartment, from iron and ironing board to washer and dryer. There is a long flight of stairs from the entrance up to the apartment, but we greatly appreciated that little stair-climbing workout after far too many sinful meals and treats as we roamed the city. However, I must say that my mother, who is 85, managed those stairs without any problem whatsoever, and we all felt that the separation from entryway to living area added far more privacy to the apartment......which we loved. It was like our glorious, gorgeous little sanctuary up there! Linens were extremely well-stocked as well. Additionally, just outside our door we could catch the MUNI #5 to anywhere and everywhere in the city. What a wonderful bonus that was! Very quiet area, short walk to Alamo Square Park, "painted lady" homes, and some great little "colorful" eateries on Divisadero, including a great little cafe called the Oasis, Mojo's Cafe down a few blocks, and our favorite, Little Star Pizza. With the great location of this apartment and the MUNI #5 bus stop just outside, this is where you want to be! I might mention as well that the owner is quick to respond to any questions you may have, and soon after my arrival home, my deposit had already been credited back to my account. Great place, great location, great owner! My family cannot stop raving about our "home away from home" in San Fran! We will certainly rent this apartment again on our next visit, and I can honestly say that if you want a great San Fran experience, this is absolutely the apartment you want to rent! We left our hearts there!!!
