CLASSIC RUSSIAN HILL FLAT IN SF!

Russian Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Centrally Located Sf Flat, Sleeps Up To 6

This charming 2 bedroom Russian Hill flat, in an Edwardian building built in 1907, is the perfect location for your San Francisco get-away. The building is located on a quiet street in the delightful Russian Hill neighborhood that is full of old world charm, and is conveniently located near many of the wonderful sites and flavors that San Francisco has to offer:

1½ blocks to cable car (Hyde Street)

Less than 10 minute walk to historic North Beach

Less than 10 minute walk to bustling Chinatown

Less than 10 minute walk to Polk Street cafes and shops

3 minute cable car ride to Lombard St

5 minute cable car ride to Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman’s Wharf

Imagine waking up in this classic San Francisco flat deciding what to do with your day. You could go to a North Beach bakery for cappuccino and a pastry, followed by a walk to Coit Tower and Washington Square. Or you could head to Chinatown for Dim Sum, go souvenir shopping on Grant Ave followed by a traditional foot massage. Maybe you want to go to a coffee shop on Polk Street followed by an afternoon of window shopping at the many boutiques on Polk and Union streets. Or maybe you’ll take the cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf for a seafood brunch followed by a ferry boat ride to Alcatraz.

About the flat:

The master bedroom has a king size bed and bay window, decorated with art deco accents. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, original pocket doors that open to the living room, and is decorated with authentic California Plein-Air paintings.

The living room has a brand new, super comfortable pull-out sleeper sofa that sleeps two people. There are hardwood floors throughout the flat.

The newly renovated kitchen has beautiful original tile work from the 1920s as well as many contemporary conveniences, including a new dishwasher and microwave. I love to cook and I’ve stocked this kitchen with all the cookware, vintage dishware and cookbooks you need to make your own feasts if you so desire.

In classic San Francisco fashion, the bathroom and toilet room are separated. Both have original tile from the 1920s as well as vintage art deco mirrors.

Amenities include:

• Washer and Dryer in unit

• Complimentary coffee and tea

• Bedding and towels provided

• Shampoo, soap and blow dryer provided

• 50' HD Cable TV and high speed wireless internet

• Telephone with free domestic service

• Small outdoor yard with gas grill

• iPod docking station

• Parking in the garage below the flat is available for an additional $30 per day

Since this flat is located on a hill, if you don’t like the idea of walking up or down a hill you may want to consider renting a car or staying in a flatter (but not nearly as scenic or convenient!) area of town.

San Francisco is a great town for walking, but if you want to drop into a gym or attend a yoga class, there are several facilities close by.

No smoking anywhere on the property, including the outdoor backyard and the front steps.

I moved from my native country of Japan to the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco over 20 years ago and I plan to stay here forever. I truly love San Francisco and Russian Hill in particular. I manage my own art business and love collecting and restoring antiques. I also love traveling, wine tasting, hiking, visiting museums and galleries, cooking, and checking out new San Francisco restaurants and coffee shops.

I am passionate about respecting and maintaining San Francisco’s old world charm. I personally restored this property, keeping as much of the original details that I could while creating a comfortable atmosphere with modern conveniences. I want guests to have an authentic San Francisco experience, and hope the space I have created will make you feel at home.

Because I have lived here for so long, I can provide guests with tips on sites and local restaurants that are off of the beaten path. I can also recommend neighborhood walks that expose guests to the historic and cultural charm that San Francisco has to offer. Since I often go to Napa and Sonoma, I have many recommendations of wineries that you may want to visit.

I am proud of my adopted city and my home and want to share them with you. I hope that you can experience all the wonders of San Francisco that I am so lucky to enjoy everyday.

The best VRBO rental ever!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Our family of 5 loved this flat. It was adorable, comfortable and absolutely fitting with the beautiful San Francisco environs. The owner literally thought of everything. I have used VRBO to rent 8-10 vacation places, and this location and flat is hands down the best place we've ever stayed in. Every detail was perfected, and Kenji was a perfect host. The location is great, and you are in walking distance or cable car to almost everywhere you'd want to go. We're going back, for sure!

BEAUTIFUL Flat in a Great Neighbourhood!

My family and I arrived early in SF but Kenji was there to greet us with hot tea and a warm smile. He is his flat personified! He welcomed us with a tour of his lovely flat and an extensive portfolio of SF information. If that's not the way to start your vacation I don't know what is. I was travelling with my husband and two 11 year olds and a 9 year old. They enjoyed their stay at Kenji's as much as I did. One day, they even walked all the way from Fisherman's Wharf to the flat without too much whining! We liked the fact that it was close to the cable cars and there were many local restaurants nearby as we ate dinner out every night. We had a car but only used it to visit the GG Park and the Presidio. It was nice to be among the locals and not to be surrounded by tourists all the time. We had too much of that in Fisherman's Wharf. We did manage to make use of Kenji's kitchen as we had breakfast at the flat every morning. We shopped at Trader Joe's which is nearby.

Amenities were top notch such as the flat's décor(Japanese inspired), luxurious bedding (I want that duvet!), Japanese toilet (kids loved that) and the on demand hot water (husband loved that). There were little touches as well such as the full bottles of shampoo/conditioner/body wash, liquid detergent for washer, coffee, tea and lots of towels. I can't say enough good things about the property and about Kenji. He really loves SF and he can't wait to tell you all about it. We followed almost all his recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing secret spots and weren't disappointed.

Thank you so much for opening up your home and city to me and my family. Our trip to SF will hold fond memories that will include you and your beautiful flat.

Awesome Flat in Great Location!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful San Francisco flat. Kenji was an excellent host and the accommodations were superior. Kenji greeted us upon our arrival...slippers were waiting at the door and we were quickly offered green tea while he reviewed the extensive materials he has prepared to help guests plan sightseeing activities etc. The flat is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood within walking distance of many of the key sightseeing attractions. We felt very safe walking in the area and we thoroughly enjoyed the local restaurants. There are also several vantage points close to the flat that offer excellent views of the city. While we spent most of our time in San Francisco exploring the city the apartment amenities were appreciated when we finally took a break. The flat is well appointed with lovely furnishings and the sheets and towels were definitely luxurious. The teenager travelling with us tested the pull out sofa and gave it a great review. We also appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine and fine chocolates! We even found time in the evening to read some of Kenji's many books on San Francisco. Based on our outstanding experience we can highly recommend this rental!!!

AMAZING SAN FRANCISCO FLAT!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Our family had an amazing vacation in San Francisco, and our stay in Kenji's flat made a big difference. Indeed, the past reviews I read were all "on the spot"! Having a firsthand experience of Kenji's warm hospitality, (from the welcome tea, tour of his place, restaurant tips and other suggestions, handwritten note in a card, ghirardelli chocolates and a bottle of wine,)..... added to the overall positive experience of our San Francisco vacation! I would definitely recommend this flat to my friends who will visit San Francisco. The beauty and warmth of Kenji's flat surely made up for the coldness of SFO when we were there. I especially like the added extra of a washer and dryer (complete with detergents) which we made good use of. San Francisco is a walking city..... and Kenji's flat is ideal for walking to many interesting places. We walked to China town, to many nearby restaurants, to the crooked Lombard street, all the way down to Civic center. You could walk all the way down to Marina and the Fisherman's wharf. Since there were many of us, taking a taxi back to the flat was a good option. But for my other adult children, the walk back was a good exercise.

We hope to stay longer when we visit San Francisco again..... and hopefully, Kenji's flat will be available!! Thanks again Kenji! Till we meet again!!

Everything just perfect

We - a family of four stayed here for 3 nights before Christmas 2013. The flat is indeed very nice and clean - recently remodelled and the original style is well maintained with tiles and most likely ? original hard floors with a beautiful look. Great atmosphere.

The street is quiet too - just a few neighbours drove by. I enjoyed sitting by the window - with a cup of coffee watching people passing by. In the morning my daughter spent some time sitting outside at the front door with a cup of tea reading. We parked the car in the garage and walked to Union Square, Fisherman’s Warf, restaurants and shops.

We dined at a nearby Spanish tapas restaurant - excellent and inexpensive. We biked the Golden Gate. In the morning before we went to Tahoe we enjoyed jogging by the shoreline to Golden Gate. OK - the weather was perfect too, but this flat deserves all the positive reviews.
Everything just perfect - which also includes communication before booking and the information we got from Kenji at the arrival about restaurants, museums, parks, shopping etc.

I definitely recommend this flat.
