ROMANTIC GETAWAY ON TELEGRAPH HILL CLOSE TO FISHERMAN'S WHARF

Telegraph Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

“One day, if I go to heaven…I’ll look around and say, ‘It ain’t bad, but it ain’t San Francisco.’”

Herb Cain

In San Francisco, it is all about location and views...and we have them both.

THE DETAILS:

~ Two upscale view apartments, The Filbert Step's View and The City Light's View.

~ Both units have amazing views and high end appointments.

~ Most of the tourist destinations are within walking distance

~ Identical layout - bedroom overlooking the living room

~ Full kitchen

~ Close to public transportation - No need to rent a car!

~ The wild parrots of Telegraph Hill fly by all the time!!!

THE SIZZLE:

Some of the comments our guests have made are:

- “Amazing views!”

- “The photos don’t do it justice.”

- “The Filbert Steps are so romantic.”

- “I loved waking up to the wild parrots in the morning.”

In this well-loved city, Telegraph Hill is San Francisco’s most charming neighborhood. Offering spectacular views of the Bay and its bridges, the San Francisco skyline, and the East Bay, Telegraph Hill couples Bohemian history with walking-distance convenience to Chinatown, North Beach (the heart of the Italian community and the 1950's 'beatnik' heritage of Grant Avenue), Pier 39, the Embarcadero, and the Financial District/Union Square.

Within this special neighborhood lies the jewel: the Filbert Street Steps. Historic and much-photographed, the Steps are the soul of Telegraph Hill: quiet (there is no vehicular traffic), a favorable 'micro climate' (the City might be foggy but sunny on the Steps), with verdant flower gardens and the famous 'Parrots of Telegraph Hill'. Because of this uniqueness, houses on the Steps rarely come on the real estate market; they are passed from generation to generation or snapped up by the neighborhood residents.

Here is your chance to stay in a unique Filbert Steps property, a three-unit building with magnificent Bay and City views designed by noted architect Henry Hester. 2 units are immediately available. Both are two-story apartments, with a bedroom overlooking a living room (with wood-burning fireplace) and kitchen/dining area. These units were combined in the 1960's as the 'bachelor pad' of actor George C. Scott in the movie, 'Petulia', but are two separate units again...as the architect had intended.

These units appeal to different visitors depending on when they are going to be in the unit.

Filbert Steps View:

If you are going to spend the day hanging out on the Filbert Steps, this unit is for you. This is perfect for the visitor who wants to relax during the day and enjoy an amazing view of the Filbert Steps, Coit Tower and the San Francisco Bay.

City Lights View:

If you are going to be working all day and want a place to unwind and enjoy the views at night, this unit is the definite choice. Imagine coming “home” and relaxing in the living room looking at the lights of the Bay Bridge and then falling asleep with a view of the city lights (specifically, the Transamerica Pyramid.) These are great views during the day too, but they really sparkle at night.

Although each apartment is perfect for a couple, the living room sofa in each converts to a Queen bed. Fully-furnished with modern art from the owner’s extensive collection (including canvases from Stanford University artist-in-residence Dani Tull), bed and bath linens, TV/DVD, audio system (with CD library), a fully-equipped kitchen (except dishwasher), and other amenities.

The building has no parking, but street parking is available. San Francisco’s iconic Coit Tower is only steps away from the building’s front door and offers additional parking.

The 39 Coit bus stops a few doors away and makes a loop from Fisherman's Wharf through North Beach and up to Coit Tower all day. A laundromat is 1 block from the building. The shops and restaurants of North Beach are a 3-block walk.

“San Francisco has only one drawback – ‘tis hard to leave.”

Rudyard Kipling

Would not want to stay anywhere else

We stayed in the City Lights apartment and it was perfect. This was our first trip to San Francisco and this put us in a great location to soak up the best of the city. Everything in the apartment was lovely and it was perfectly set up with everything we could possibly need. We were able to walk to all the areas we wanted to see and take the bus home when our feet got tired. While all the information at booking was very complete, Patrick's visit added a wonderful personal touch and was very helpful. Thanks so much for making our visit to San Francisco so wonderful!

Perfect location - wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited San Francisco to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The stay at Telegraph Hill was perfect. Patrick was a wonderful host. The location has marvelous views of the area - especially the Bay Bridge and the light installation. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Patrick accompanied us on Saturday to the farmer's market and gave us a local's perspective and history of the area - stuff you won't hear on the other commercial tours.

We highly recommend the location and can't wait to visit again.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I traveled from MA to San Francisco for a week-long vacation. When choosing where to stay, we wanted to be situated in a place where we could walk to most of the things we wanted to see. This apartment couldn't have been more perfect. Right on top of Telegraph Hill, we were able to walk around most of the city and easily get back, although there is a bus that runs right up to Coit Tower if you are tired. We were in the City Lights View unit and being able to see the Bay Bridge at night from our window was awesome. Everything in the unit was clean and we felt much more comfortable than we would have in a hotel. The kitchen allowed me to make breakfast before heading out every morning. Patrick helped us a great deal with recommending where to go for dinner or sightseeing. We had an amazing time visiting the city and I would definitely recommend staying in this beautiful apartment.

Awesome views, comfortable, cozy, romantic, quiet, wonderful getaway!!!

First time in San Francisco. Picked the perfect place. Patrick was helpful and friendly. If we needed anything he was available would stay there again for sure. Beautiful views of bay and coit tower. We would definitely recommend this unit and have already to some friends from Sacramento. The Fog Hill market around the corner was cute and had everything we needed for our stay, including Duraflame logs for the fireplace. Caffe Greco on Columbus was excellent for Breakfast and relaxing. And no trip to SF is complete without walking the Golden Gate Bridge. Thanks again Patrick for your hospitality and we look forward to coming again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My wife an I enjoyed our four nights in the City Lights View apartment. The views are great and it's in a great location. The apartment is very tasteful and it was a plus to have the Zagat Guide available for restaurant reviews. Two restaurants which I would highly recommend are Isa in the Marina District on Steiner and North Beach's Ideale on Grant. It is a real Italian restaurant - it seemed that all of the staff spoke Italiano and the food was molto bueno. We discussed limoncello recipes with our waiter and he brought us a little taste of his homemade limoncello. It was just as good or better than my home made limoncello. We walk most places but on occasion use MUNI. The #39 bus takes you very close to the apartment but it runs very sporadically. We did finally get to use it on our last evening. I guess we are too impatient to wait for more than 30 minutes when we could just walk up the hill. The DeYoung Museum is well worth a visit especially since the "Girl With a Pearl Exhibit" is there. We spent almost six hours there and still did not see everything. My only disappointment was not seeing any parrots - next time

Location AND View!

  • 5 of 5
My sister-in-law and I just came back from a *wonderful* stay in the Filbert Steps unit. This was my second stay there -- my husband and I had a marvelous time at the place two years ago, and I loved the place so much that I suggested that she and I go there for our "girls' getaway." We both want to come back -- that says it all.
The pictures are very accurate -- the views are, indeed, that good! (The view of the Bay Bridge from the big window over the toilet was terrific....) I lived in the Bay Area many years ago and Telegraph Hill -- the Filbert Steps and the Greenwich Steps in particular -- were perhaps my favorite spot in the City. I was so surprised when I was looking for a place two years ago and actually found this one on the steps! And the place is spectacular!! Patrick was very helpful with arrival instructions and many suggestions for restaurants, transportation, etc. Do buy a transit pass. We paid $28 for 7 days and, with cable cars up to $6 per ride, the pass was a great bargain. We could go anywhere -- so easy!
My only caution would be about the steps. My husband, my sister-in-law and I are all in our 60s and had no trouble, but if you can't do stairs then look elsewhere. If you can do steps and want the best location and view in the city, then reserve this place!
