NEWLY RENOVATED NORTH BEACH APARTMENT WITH SPECTACULAR ROOF DECK

North Beach Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom/1 Bath, Sleeps 6, Small Pets Ok, Breathtaking Views Roof Deck

Thank you for your interest in our apartment. Our six unit building was completely renovated down to the studs a few years ago. Everything is like new. You get the charm of an original 1908 San Francisco walk up with all the modern conveniences like an tank-less water heater and an in-unit washer/dryer. Our unit is on the top (third) floor. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a bay window with a built in bench from which there are beautiful views of Russian Hill and a quaint little alley reminiscent of the left bank of Paris. The second bedroom has a full size bunk bed and twin trundle that can sleep up to 4 adults and 1 child. All of the bedding, linens, mattresses and pillows are brand new with hypoallergenic and waterproof coverings. Everything is professionally cleaned and sanitized between guests.

The living area features a large comfortable sectional with views of Coit Tower and a full entertainment system that including a 55” flat screen TV with HBO and Showtime, CD player, DVD/Blue Ray player and auxiliary input for iPhone/iPad or other MP3 device. The large, open kitchen has a gas Bertazzoni range and a side-by-side refrigerator with an ice maker. The kitchen is stocked with basic essentials like spices, condiments and coffee so you can make meals at home without having to purchase things that won’t get used up. There is a large counter height dining table on which to enjoy family style meals.

The apartment is equipped with a portacrib, a child's convertible car seat, and stroller if you have a little one.

If you don’t feel like cooking there are literally hundreds of restaurants that will deliver right to the door.

Perhaps the best feature of the apartment is the spectacular private roof deck. With 360 degree views including Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower and the Transamerica Building, you feel like you are on top of the world. The roof deck features a high quality sound system, a dream BBQ, a commercial propane heater and a fire table so you can enjoy the deck even on chilly evenings.

North Beach is one of the best places to stay for a San Francisco vacation. It is walking distance to many of the major tourists attractions like Cable Cars, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square, Chinatown and Lombard Street. And North Beach is a foodie's dream come true with literally hundreds of restaurants and bars including Michelin star-rated Gary Danko’s and the famous 'Saloon' where Tommy Castro recorded his first album.

If you want to venture out of North Beach there are many options for public transportation. The famous Mason/Powell Cable Car and Muni stops are only 1 block away. The beautiful F-Line - impeccably restored vintage trains from around the world (I love the one from Milan) is 4 blocks away. Cabs are plentiful and easily hailed on the street or by phone.

My wife and I both grew up in the Bay Area and moved to North Beach about six years ago after the kids grew up. We own and live in the apartment adjacent to the rental unit. I'm a VP at a high tech silicon valley company and my wife is the COO of high tech consulting company. We have a beautiful King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Lily who is the rock star of North Beach. We love to travel ourselves and look forward to hosting people in our beautiful city.

North Beach is one of the best places to stay San Francisco. It is walking distance to many of the major tourists attractions and it is a foodie's dream come true! North Beach also has a wonderful local culture. Staying in our apartment instead of a tourist hotel down the street you can get the best of both worlds. Right around the corner is Sweeties Art Bar which is generally considered the 'Cheers' of North Beach. The diverse group of regulars range from sailors in their 20's to professionals in their 40's and 50's to retirees. Everyone knows everyone yet newcomers can make friends instantly. There is a list of our other favorite little neighborhood places in the apartment as well.

The best feature of this apartment is the spectacular roof deck. With 360 views including Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower and the Transamerica Building, you feel like you are on top of the world. Throw in the high quality sound system, a dream BBQ and a glowing fire table and it becomes a little slice of heaven. As you relax with a glass of wine you can hear the clang of cable cars in the distance, the faint bark of sea lions at Pier 39, the forlorn call of the fog horns and the ringing of the church bells at St. Peter and Paul's.

Perfect Spot for Visiting SF

We just returned from a 4-night stay in San Francisco. Couldn't have been better. The apartment is fantastic -- nicely outfitted and decorated, with a spectacular rooftop deck -- and it could not be in a better spot. SF is a great walking city, and this is was a perfect spot to star and finish walks. Everything is close by -- great restaurants, cafés, bars, stores, City Lights, parks, the Embarcadero. North Beach is just a great city neighborhood. Ralph and family were wonderful hosts. We look forward to coming back.

Live like a local and enjoy SF in North Beach

We were a family of three - two teenage girls.
Bethie and Ralph were great at communicating with us before and during our stay. We were met at the door by Bethie and shown the place and given the details to 'live like a local' in their place.
The beds are incredibly comfortable, the space well laid out with anything you need to stay in and cook and enjoy the roof top deck.
We highly recommend staying and choosing this vacation rental.

This place is absolutely amazing! It is by far the best vrbo I have ever stayed in. Not only were the accommodations beautiful and close to everything, Ralph and Bethie were the most helpful and responsive owners. I would recommend this vrbo to anyone who is going to SF.

We stayed here for four nights, and I already can't wait to come back. The apartment was beautifully furnished and impeccably clean. The owner was very responsive before, during, and after our stay, and he even helped us to find a (terrific) babysitter for one night while we were here. It's a great location, with grocery stores just down the street and an easy walk to the waterfront. In addition to everything that you would expect in an apartment, the owners also keep it stocked with staples like coffee, sugar, and condiments, so that we didn't have to go out immediately for groceries when we arrived late at night from the east coast. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Amazing property, view, and property owners!

We just returned from the most fabulous stay in San Francisco! Everything was superb! We contacted Ralph & Bethie about their property months prior and they were very prompt about responding which carried through even while we stayed in SF! They went WAY above and beyond what we could have ever imagined! We took our 6mo daughter (her first trip) and they provided the pack-n-play and stroller - we discussed the car seat situation - and Ralph kindly offered to buy one for us to use while visiting! It worked out SO nicely! We stayed 5 nights and 6 days - my mom stayed with us - she slept in the bunk room and had a very comfortable stay as did we with our 6mo in the master bedroom. We had guests over Friday night before a wedding (approx 16 people) and had the best time utilizing the rooftop deck! Everyone was so envious of our views! Even the San Franciscans! The entire condo was beautifully decorated and fully furnished. If you need anything I would talk to Ralph & Bethie - they were so very accommodating and if they can't help, I'm sure they'll know who can! We needed transportation into the city and Ralph was even able to help with that - since he bought the carseat, he had his cabbie friend install the carseat and pick us up from the airport and took us back when we were departing! Seriously, if you're looking for a topnotch trip…this is your place! We'll definitely be back!

Oh and there is a Trader Joe's and Safeway less than 2 blocks away! And lots of great restaurants! We walked nearly everywhere! Thank goodness for the stroller! And if we didn't walk we used the cable cars and uber was great too!

Washington Square park is very close as well and is a great place to people watch while eating a sandwich from Mario's Cigar Bohemian shop!
