CLASSIC SAN FRANCISCO PIED-À-TERRE

North Beach Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This unique property, which was originally constructed in 1908, was completely rebuilt and decorated in 2009. The rebuilding kept intact the apartment's classic San Franciscan style as well as its feel. The flat is located in the heart of Telegraph Hill's North Beach area, San Francisco's most desirable location due to its uniquely good weather, sun exposure and centrality to many of the city's most attractive features. The apartment's positioning on Telegraph Hill places it steps below Coit Tower, a location that allows for breathtaking views of the San Francisco skyline.

The property has a living/dining room, kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, and a large roof terrace. The living/dining area enjoys southern light exposure year-round and has spectacular views of both Nob Hill and Russian Hill through its large windows. The kitchen itself is equipped with a new 24' Viking range, 24' high end apartment refrigerator, and a high quality Bosch dishwasher. The bedroom is above a quiet street and the bathroom has a full shower and claw foot tub. The terrace has full sun and has a peek-a-boo view of the Golden Gate bridge.

North Beach is a wonderful part of San Francisco characterized by its culture and nightlife. There is an abundance of restaurants, shopping and tourist destinations within walking distance from the flat that include City Lights Bookstore, Mama's Cafe and Mario's Bohemian Cigar Shop. From the apartment to North Beach's Washington Square is about a 3 minute walk.

Our names are Mark and Tami Becker and we are an architect and an interior designer, respectively. Our family currently resides in the East Bay but we love the feeling of being immersed in a city environment. Over the years we have been fortunate enough to travel extensively throughout the world visiting relatives in England, celebrating our marriage in Greece, living abroad in France and Tami even navigated her way through the Gobi desert. All of this traveling has led to staying in many different sleeping environments. Therefore, our extensive travel has made us truly appreciate the ability to find good local accommodations, a trait this VRBO listing definitely offers.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

San Francisco is home to a great deal of diversity and culture and North Beach is the heart of that culture. Also, because Mark is an architect, he insisted upon finding a location with good weather and proximity to the quaint, classic areas of the city. We love this location due to the ability to walk everywhere and the feeling of being in a large city, but not being overwhelmed. North Beach is the epitome of a comfortable, inviting neighborhood with all the positive features of a large city.

The outdoor patio is a beautiful respite after a day spent exploring the city. The patio is quiet and has spectacular views that can be appreciated at any time of day, whether you have just woken up or are coming home after a long night out. Another favorite feature is that the surrounding areas can easily be visited on foot, and public transportation or cab travel can get you everywhere else. We love that a car is not a necessity. On a normal day, we wake up and walk to a café and relax before heading out on our explorations. The truth is, North Beach has a feel that is very much like that of a classic European city with cafés, good restaurants and classic architecture.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
The perfect home base for a 4-day San Francisco vacation. We arrived and happened to run into the downstairs neighbors, who gave us the 411 on spots to visit in the area and the fact that we wouldn't even need to start the car. He even introduced me to Uber!

One block from Little Italy and a couple more to Chinatown. Just blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and steps from Coit Tower. The place is super clean and obviously furnished and painted by an interior designer. There us an Alice in Wonderland vibe with large keyholes and Victorian influences everywhere. AMAZING tub and also enclosed shower. VERY comfortable bed, and a view of the city to die for!

We will be back because this is now my go-to spot in San Francisco. It was also my first experience with VRBO and I couldn'd be happier. No more hotels for me!

Our magic vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved the apartment: great location, spectacular views, comfortable furniture...and did I say spectacular views? We spent many moments watching the sun coming up, lighting the city beneath the windows; the evening hours were as wonderful. Thanks for making this magical place available!

Great Location and Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I live in the bay area, and just wanted a little getaway close to home. We love the City, and found this cute place on VRBO. The house was immaculate, with beautiful decor, excellent attention to detail, and a nice patio to die for! Great location, within walking distance to so many great restaurants and nice hills to walk-off the calories the next day. Would have given this 5 stars, the only suggestion to other travelers is to bring your own soap, shampoo, conditioner, coffee etc. Would have thought that would be included in the price of the rental, so our first showers were without shampoo and we had to stop at the corner store. Not a real big deal, but just be prepared.

You won't be disappointed here! It is a little slice of SF heaven!

Owner's Response: Ashleigh,
thanks for the nice review and excellent suggestion. We have left soap etc. from time to time, and it didn't seem to be getting used. I think in the future we will keep a stash in the linen cabinet just in case. I'm glad you had a nice stay!
Best regards,
Tami

Gorgeous apartment perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this pied-a-terre for a week. It was exactly as advertised and perfect for us. The neighborhood is wonderful, and we were close to everything. But the place is on a quiet, private street, so you don't hear the noise of the neighborhood. The deck is great for sipping coffee in the morning, or wine in the evening, with stunning views of the city. The apartment is clean and comfortable, and incredibly decorated. We felt so at home. It was wonderful to explore the city by day, and come home to our cozy haven in the evenings. Perfect place for a relaxing get away!

I didn't want to leave...

I didn't want to leave...
  • 5 of 5
It was really hard to admit to myself that this wasn't my own apartment and that I actually had to leave. Every detail is perfect. It's stocked with everything you'd ever want in your home - nice linens, towels, kitchen supplies...the roof deck is a dream, the fireplaces (yes, there are two) are such a great touch in foggy San Francisco and the wood floors and high ceilings were everything I've ever dreamed of.

Whenever I'm back in SF, I will absolutely stay here. If it's already reserved, I'll consider bribing whoever has it.

Thank you to Tami and Mark for being such gracious, thoughtful hosts as well. They were so wonderful.
