Telegraph Hill Bungalow Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath With Bay Views
This unique property is located on the historic Greenwich Steps, and was featured in the celebrated film and book “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill”. It is steps away from the Americas Cup viewing stand and headquarters, and features views of the start/finish line as well as Treasure Island.
The property originated as a fisherman’s cottage and is well over 100 years old. Its original features and charm have been preserved, but modern conveniences have been added. There is a wood-paneled living/dining area with a working fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, full-size oven, microwave, dishwasher, and disposal, a separate bedroom with cable TV, and a very large bathroom with a claw-foot tub. There is high-speed internet and wifi.
Whether you are looking for a quiet night in or a night on the town, this cozy apartment is an ideal base for your San Francisco trip. The view is equally spectacular both day and night. Immediately below the apartment is the famous San Francisco waterfront, including the newly constructed Americas Cup viewing stand and the adjacent amphitheater that will host famous musical acts from April through September, beginning with Sting. In the same area you will find the SF Bay Club, one of the City’s largest health clubs with indoor pool, tennis, squash, weight training and much more.
Easy walking distance from the foot of the hill on the waterfront side are Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39 (sea lions!), The Cannery, and Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Easy walking distance from the other side of the hill are North Beach and Chinatown, each home to many of the City’s best restaurants and nightclubs.
Please note that this apartment is only appropriate for people who are reasonably agile and in fairly good physical condition. You must walk up or down a significant number of steps to reach the property from the nearest streets, and climb a three-step ladder to reach the bed. It is approximately 550 square feet and can comfortably accommodate only two guests. The custom-made bed is larger than a queen-size but smaller than a king-size.
