Week exploring San Francisco

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful apartment, well-equipped and absolutely fantastic views from the roof. The hosts were very helpful, and even arranged for a garage rental (at an extra charge) for the few days I needed a car but didn't want to battle finding street parking, which is a serious challenge in North Beach.

I was a little concerned about noise in such an bustling neighborhood, but the bedrooms on effectively the third floor were high enough up that it was never an issue. I could even leave the windows open and didn't really hear anything but normal and not objectionable city sounds.

Restaurants are plentiful and easy walking distance. Park Tavern, a few blocks away on Washington Square Park was quite good, and I found myself stopping for sorbetto at Gelateria Naia on Columbus almost every day. It was actually even an easy 20-minute walk to Coqueta on the Embarcadero. The hills in this area of North Beach are not steep (unless you want to hike up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower, only a few blocks away), which was one reason I chose this location in SF over, say, Nob Hill.

This is only my second rental through VRBO (first was in NYC), and I was just as pleased with this apartment as I was with the first one. The hosts, who own the map store below the apartment, were readily available if I had questions. There are lots of guidebooks with information about San Francisco in the bookshelves.

This was a great, convenient location. Taxis and Uber are plentiful, if expensive, for longer excursions. I was very pleased with everything, and heartily recommend it.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is located excellent in North Beach.
The apartmemt itself has all you need for a perfect stay. Without a car the city, piers, China Town and some of the greatest restaurants are in walking distance.
This was our 2nd stay in this apartment and we can't wait until we come back again.

Beautiful apartment, conveniently located a block off Columbus Ave. in North Beach

  • 5 of 5
Wow!! I was expecting nice, but nothing as fantastic as this! I loved sitting in the living room's window seat and reading or doing computer stuff and watching the world walk by (and literally right under you, as the bay window is over the sidewalk). The kitchen is nicely equipped with everything anyone would need, and corner stores for food and liquor are mere steps away.

The rooftop deck provides stunning 360 degree views of Coit Tower, a peek of the Golden Gate Bridge, Nob Hill and the Transamerica Pyramid. Great place to hang out for drinks, but hang on to your napkins as it can get a bit windy.

I was a little concerned that, being a bustling neighborhood, the street noise might interfere with sleep. Surprisingly, it quiets down, at a reasonable hour, and the sound didn't carry to the front bedroom, even with the window open.

The hosts are great. The run a fascinating antique map shop downstairs, and Jim has an encyclopedic knowledge of this. Any questions I had about his collection, the neighborhood, or the apartment was immediately addressed.

Some good neighborhood restaurants are nearby, including Gelateria Naia, a gelato place at 520 Columbus that I ended up at multiple times. Park Tavern on Washington Square a few blocks away was delicious. Bakeries for breakfast to bring back the apartment are plentiful.

Street parking is a pain. Jim and Marti arranged for me to rent an off-street space for the few days I had my rental car, which helped immensely. Otherwise, a cab, Uber or Lyft are very prevalent.

In sum: great apartment (pictures are spot-on), nice, helpful hosts, convenient location. Just was I was hoping for when "going native" for a week. Thanks, Jim and Marti!

What a place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time at this perfectly located and beautifully appointed and cared for property! We are two couples from Montana who trek to San Francisco regularly for our "Big City Fix." We love North Beach, and it was a wonderful rendezvous point to rest, relax, and revamp between daily excursions to explore the area. The weather couldn't have been better, and we were able to enjoy the incredible roof top deck and views for morning coffee, afternoon cocktails, and evening nightcaps! We could see the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Grace church, and were just blocks from Coit Tower, Transamerica Bldg., Washington Park, etc.

We enjoyed fabulous food at Gigi's Sotto Mare, Calzone's, Caffe' Sport, Tadich Grille, Alito's Restaurant, and Stella's Bakery! We took in the sights and sounds at Bimbo's 365 (Saturday night show of Tainted Love), Mr. Bing's, and, our favorite, the Saloon -- music and local flavor every day!

The apartment is a great place, and we highly recommend it to others. Clean, comfortable, well stocked, comfortable beds, luxurious linens, and, of course, our favorite, the roof top deck! We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Thanks! We'll definitely be back!

Charming Apartment, Authentic San Francisco Style

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location for exploring the best of San Francisco. Clean, spacious, and special touches everywhere you look. Amazingly comfortable sleep number bed with delicious high thread count sheets. Did I mention the espresso / coffee maker? No luxury item missed here: thick absorbent towels, heavy terry cotton robes, filtered water, crystal stemware, and every kitchen gadget you could imagine to whip up dinner.

After sightseeing, we looked forward to "happy hour" every afternoon: a soak in jacuzzi tub followed by a glass of wine and people watching from the window seat.

One block from an amazing deli and corner grocery. Head down the hill to the best resturaunts San Francisco has to offer! Apartment was just as described, with amazing rooftop views.

Never wanted to leave, can't wait to go back! A real treasure!
