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.

Great Location and Beautiful Home!

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!

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!

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.

A perfect place to stay

This little gem of a flat was the perfect place for me and my daughter to have as a home base to explore San Francisco. The location is perfect. High on a hill overlooking the city, with a glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge. A great view in the evening as the sun was setting, and an inspiring place to have a cup of tea in the morning. If you get up early enough, you can watch the bird ballet from the lovely patio.
The flat was a welcome to come home to after walking all over the city. Very comfortable and well equipped. The host even provided us a bottle of lovely wine.
I would not only recommend this property to a friend, I would surely stay here again!!
The neighborhood is GREAt!!! Great restaurants and shops within a short walk. We loved Don Pisto's on Union St. The neighborhood is very quiet, but close to the bustle of the city.
San Francisco is a beautiful city. We had a amazing visit.

An Enchanting Place in an Atmospheric City

My husband and I stayed at this place three times so far, and that says it all! The place is lovely and the location is perfect. It is a twenty-minute leisurely walk to Downtown and Union Square, ten-minute walk to Fisherman’s Wharf and the food markets, and a few minutes hike to Coit Tower from where you can enjoy the view, catch a glimpse of the wild parrots, or take the Filbert steps down to the Embarcadero. The apartment is only few blocks away from North Beach boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife, and yet it is quiet and peaceful. It is close to bus stops for other SF neighborhoods such as the Marina and Union Street. There is also a bus stop (#39) up the hill in case one is tired of walking or carrying too many shopping bags. The apartment is as charming as the pictures show it. The kitchen is well-equipped. The fireplaces add a special charm on cool days while the patio is a prime spot for enjoying a beautiful weather and the pretty views. This place is simply lovely and we already miss it!
