Three charming, furnished, one-bedroom flats located in picturesque 1909 Edwardian home.
First-floor walk up is French-style with a lovely remodeled kitchen and oak parquet floors throughout and artwork painted by the Philadelphia now in San Francisco artist (and good friend and swing dancer) Peggy Gyulai.
Second-floor flat is traditional, slightly larger with a work alcove, bay windows, and antique redwood floors. Featured art by Northern California artists Marilin Sommer, Peter Collins and a large print collection, vintage as well as new.
The dramatic, top-floor flat is elegant in beige and black (traditional/contemporary) with a large, private, newly rebuilt roof deck with wrought iron railing and penthouse room with superb views of the city, Coit Tower, Pyramid Building and Bay Bridge. Prints from the chalcography in Paris, oils by Marylin Sommers, and a lovely collection of vintage and new lithographs.
All flats have light and airy bedrooms with queen-size beds, living room double-size sofa beds, fireplaces, wood floors, well-equipped kitchens, and laundry access. The first and second floor flats have fold-out twin beds. Some parking is available in the building with the top and second floor flats subject to some vehicle type restrictions.
Property is in the best Nob Hill location, one-half block to Grace Cathedral, less than two blocks to the Huntington, Mark Hopkins, and Fairmont Hotels. Walk or cable car to the financial district, Union Square, China town or North Beach. Located on a quiet, one block, long street (Pleasant Street) convenient to many restaurants, neighborhood markets, dry cleaners, cable car stops, and bus lines.
Due to height of the roof deck, first and second floor flats are best for families with children. 'San Francisco with Children' books, children's books, and games are in these units. Please, no wedding receptions, corporate entertaining, or large celebrations or gatherings in the building.
Please check pricing on our rate chart before sending an inquiry.
First 9 photos of the top floor flat, roof deck and penthouse study, second 3 of the first floor French Garden Flat and the last 4 of the second floor Bay Window Flat. Thank you to Peggy Gyulai and Chase Cameron for the wonderful photos!
Please note that availability on the rental calendar may mean that only one of the flats is available. Since we are not able to set up 3 calendars we have only indicated when all 3 flats are taken. My calendar is up to date.

After spending my adult years living on a sheep farmlett in Sebastopol and raising my family got the travel bug and found an opportunity for change so change happened.
Buenos Aires is where I now spend most of my time, por razon de tango (because of tango) but also because it is a fun and random place where strange things always happen. I have met wonderful, interesting people and the cab drivers are friendly! My life here is a combination of a Danielle Steele romance novel and a Woody Allen Movie. Been voted the queen of spring at a tango Milonga in a sort of random impromptu parade, rather amusing and somewhat embarrassing but whatever, it was fun. Anyway, taking notes, look for the movie some day.
I have always loved dancing and for the last 10 years it has been a huge part of my life. Now that my children are super responsible adults, it has been possible to pursue it on a more intense level. Ever since I went to college in Spain, living in a Spanish speaking country had always been my desire. I was invited to Buenos Aires in January 2009 to help teach Lindy Hop, specifically Balboa, at an International Lindy Hop Festival. Went tango dancing one night to Club Gricel and got completely hooked during one tanda de Calo, a composer of romantic tangos. A tanda is a group of 3-4 songs with some type of commonality that you dance with one partner. Tango either speaks to you or it does not, hard to explain but what the locals dance is not the show tango that people usually think of, it is a more personal and intimate experience.
It is a pleasure to live in Buenos Aires and be able to also travel to other cities where I also dance, managing the rentals all day and tango dancing all night, literally.
In order to keep things running smoothly and also so that my San Francisco friends do not think I no longer love them, I come back several times a year. When in the city I go through each flat and make sure that all is in order and in good repair.
When looking for this property I wanted something with a view which I could use for my family when we came into the city as well as to share with others who come to visit San Francisco. When I found this building I fell in love with the location, so central but so quaint a street, the sound of the cable cars and the thoughtful design of the spaces. The property has been given historical preservation status by the city of San Francisco being a prime example of typical construction for multi-unit housing around the turn of the century. Each owner has updated it a bit, fortunately, always in keeping with the vintage feel and with an appreciation for the history of the area.
Have always loved entertaining and this is a way to share my love for San Francisco with others and make sure that they have the optimum housing experience that the city can provide those who want to feel as if they live in San Francisco.
Staying in one of my apartments is much more like living in San Francisco. There is less pressure and hassle than a standard hotel and one gets to know a neighborhood better shopping in the local mini markets and stores. The location is the very best in San Francisco for getting around with or without a car. I recommend that you skip the car and just rent for a day or two when you want to explore outside the city.
