I grew up in San Francisco. Love this world class city for all it has to offer.

It is centrally located. You can walk every where, or take public transit. Our world famous cable car is just right outside of the building.

Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Financial District are all within an easy 20 minutes walk, or take the Cable Car.

SanFran gem.

  • 5 of 5
We loved this apartment. Everything was well maintained, clean and comfortable. It actually was bigger then the pictures made it looked. So close to everything. Cable car out the front door to any part of the city you want to go. Chinatown is about two blocks away with fresh produce daily, not to mention all the delicious Chinese food you could want. Everyone was so nice and helpful that was one of my favorite parts of the city. The kitchen has everything you would need to prepare a meal, except the food. The bed was comfortable, a bit hard mattress but I'm use to that kind. The sofa bed was extremely soft, our son slept on it and is not use to such a soft bed. Water pressure was good, and the tap water was tastey. Newer washer and dryer, both worked fine. The upstairs tenants was a bit loud and woke us up a couple times from the noise.we are not use to apartment living. Out the front of the apartment windows has a beautiful view of the bay bridge which faces east so you get the morning sun, so don't plan to sleep in to late because the room is filled with light as soon as the sun is up. There is just mini blinds on the windows. All in all we had a excellent vacation and would definently recommend this apartment. If and or when we return I would stay there again. One last tip-if you are not use to walking on a incline hit the stairmaster before you go!

Great property!

  • 4 of 5
First, dealing with Mike was a pure pleasure. Great communication and directions. He made sure to meet us when we arrived, and gave us great directions for around town, parking, and using the transit passes - another perk, the 2 transit passes were really helpful!

The property itself was spacious and CLEAN! It was bright and pleasant, and the view out the bedroom window of the bridge was fantastic. We had two adults and our 13 yr old daughter and it was perfect.

We've stayed at places where we spent the first day scrubbing the bathroom to feel clean - not so here. Very well looked after, and did I mention that it was clean?

Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook.

Honestly, I'd have given this a 5 star rating, but I never give anything a perfect score - but this was pretty close!

Perfect spot to holiday

  • 5 of 5
This was a great little apartment. Clean and well appointed with all of the basics, it's not luxury but has a great home feel and we loved our stay. The pantry was full of staples if you want to cook for yourself or it's just a short walk or cable car ride to China Town, Union square or the wharf to eat out.

The photo's are a good representation of the apartment except for the fact there was more room than we expected. With two energetic boys, we still found the space fine and much better than a hotel. It was great that netflix was on the TV making it easy to provide cartoons on tap for the kids or to watch a movie. The washer and dryer were also a great addition and perfect size to do a big load so you don't have to come home to a pile of dirty laundry.

The walk down to the wharf was more than fine to use up some energy and then the clipper cards supplied by the owner made it a simple trip back on the cable car if you get some groceries

We didn't really notice the noise of the cable car at all, no more than regular traffic type noise as some people have previously mentioned. The view from the bedroom was just as the photos of the apartment showed as well.

Thanks to the owner and would recommend the apartment to any travelers.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this appartment with my husband and 10 month old, we had a great time. The location is great, within walking distance to everything you need or a quick cable car ride. The appartment was well equiped and large enough for our familly. The owner was very flexible abour departure time and provided required sleeping arrangement for our baby. I would definatly recommend this apartment. Only downfall is that the walls are not soundproof.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5
Mike's place was nearly perfect - beautiful, spotless apartment, much more space than I expected, lovely view of the bay bridge, safe neighborhood. I rented it for myself, but a friend came with at the last minute, and we had more than enough room to breathe! Definitely more like a 1BR than a studio. Nob Hill is adorable, there is a gorgeous restaurant across the street and excellent coffee a block away. Corner stores, Walgreens, Trader Joe's etc. are all very close by as well. Cannot say enough about the neighborhood and the apartment!

Literally everything we mapped out in the city came up within 1/2 mile - it is smack in the middle of it all! My only warnings: 1/2 mile on the hills in SF is NOT an easy walk. Totally worth the views and the atmosphere, and I highly recommend exploring the area on foot - it's beautiful - but get to know the transit system. Your calves will thank you. Multiple buses and all the cable cars stop just at the corner, and all very easy to navigate. Cabs are cheap, clean, and friendly - and maybe because of the hills they don't seem to mind short rides. Also, this may be common sense, but as a female in a new place I didn't stray too far alone at night (and I'm a city girl, can be complacent in my sense of safety at home). Parts of Chinatown nearby can be a bit sketchy at night. Uber and Lyft were great resources - they get you door to door safely, it's worth the money if you're alone at night. Muni and parking apps help plan transit trips and find garages, etc. If you're less technologically inclined, Mike provides loads of useful tour guides, city maps, and magazines to peruse.

Mike was very prompt in communicating, but once it was all set up, everything was so well taken care of I never needed to contact him while there. I don't even think I'd bother to look for a different place next time. I absolutely recommend staying here!

This is a great unit. Great size and very clean. Close to transit, and China town - which is fun. I would definitely stay here again next time I need a place for 5 days or longer in the city.
