CLASSIC SAN FRANCISCO FLAT ON RUSSIAN HILL NEAR NORTH BEACH

Russian Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious flat in Russian Hill neighborhood filled with charm.

This spacious, light-filled six-room corner flat sits on a hill overlooking the San Francisco Bay with views of Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Marin, with visual proximity to Telegraph Hill’s Coit Tower on one side and legendary Macondary Lane on the other. Clean and well appointed, this apartment sleeps four, with a brand new queen bed in the main bedroom and a new, very comfortable, high quality queen sofa bed in the parlor/den. The living room has an engaging view and a working fireplace where you can enjoy restful evenings watching sailboats and fog stream in at sunset. Hardwood floors with detailed woodwork, historic redwood paneling, and original pocket doors (which open between the den and the living room) add to the authentic San Francisco living experience. A 32” flat screen television with DVD and DVR player, serving both the living room and the den, features a wide range of satellite channels, including HBO. There’s an iMac with Internet and a printer in the den to print out your boarding passes, tickets to events, or directions to your destination. Enjoy your meals in the formal dining room or in the large, sunny kitchen with all of the amenities: refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, and a 28” flat screen television. A full range of cookbooks and cooking utensils allows you to prepare your own meals from abundant farmer’s markets and specialty shops found in the surrounding neighborhoods. In classic San Francisco style, the bath is split with a tub/shower and sink in the main room and the toilet in the WC (Water Closet). A laundry room sits off of the kitchen with full size washer and dryer for your laundry needs. This is a second story flat with 34 stairs, which places you above the fray.

The location couldn’t be more ideal — nestled on the edge of Russian Hill with all of it’s small parks, hilltop views, charming stairways — only 2 blocks from Washington Square Park, the heart of literary North Beach. Our prime neighborhood has a wealth of cafes, lively bars, highly rated restaurants, boutiques, and the renowned City Lights Book Store. Iconic San Francisco sites such as bustling Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf are in close proximity. Two distinctive landmarks, the crooked street on Lombard and the depression era murals on Coit Tower, are within walking distance. Diverse neighborhoods and shopping districts surround Russian Hill on all sides and are within leisurely strolls, convenient bus and cable cars rides. There is the Embarcadero with its renovated Ferry Building, the newly-opened, interactive science and art museum the Exploratorium, and bay side promenades; vibrant downtown with its art museums, movie theaters, and mega shops surrounding Union Square; Hyde Street with its destination ice cream parlor, and Union Street with its unique shops and side walk cafes linking you to the natural landscape of the Presidio on the west and to the Bay toward the east. You’re right on public transportation—step out the door and catch the bus to anywhere you want to go, or jump on the cable car at the corner one block away. You can even catch the bus on the corner to AT&T Park, home of our World Champion San Francisco Giants! Come check out a game.

This classic San Francisco Edwardian built in 1916, has been family occupied for 30 years. We look forward to sharing one of our flats with San Francisco loving visitors and for people on business. Our visually distinctive building has been seen in many major motion pictures and advertisements, including Contagion, Bullitt with Steve McQueen, Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, and was used as a location set for Ron Howard’s Ed TV!

A gem of a place.

By far this is the nicest VRBO we have rented. The unit is extremely clean and very well equipped. The owner provided with everything in this unit. Upon arrival, there was fruits, a bottle of wine and a baguette left on the table welcoming us. The unit even have computer, printer and iPod docking station with iPod in it to give you numerous selection of music. We have stayed a lot of places using VRBO when we traveled and nothing compared to this place. We are giving this place the highest recommendation.

Best place to Stay in San Fran

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful place with great view on Alcatraz, perfectly located. just a few mns away from Fishermanwharf and from Coittower. Restaurants around.
The appartment is exactly if not better than described with everything needed. We received all the help from the the owner before arriving and after. We spent 4 days with our 2 kids (8 and 11) and they both loved it. Nice place to rest after hours of walk in Chinatown or a ride on the seafront

Real San Francisco Experience in the middle of everything

  • 5 of 5
Lovely San Francisco style apartment in a great location. Walking distance to all of the great sites and right on the cable and bus lines. Lot's of room for 4 people, comfy beds, great amenities. You will get lots of excercise walking the hills and the stairs -- but the view, location, and great apartment make it worth every step. Hosts surprised us with fresh sourdough bread, fruit and a bottle of wine on arrival -- much appreciated.

This charming and clean flat is like home away from home. The owners are very nice and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. There were many little extras you do not normally get in a vacation rental. It rained the first few days of our trip, but we had the cozy fireplace, books, games, and movies to keep us entertained until the weather cleared up. We ended up walking most places we needed to go and got great exercise. Thank you so much for the sour dough bread, chocolates and bottle of wine upon our arrival. We would definitely stay here again!
