Property is a recently renovated 2 bedroom plus den flat in Telegraph Hill/North Beach area. It's located at a quiet cul-de-sac on top of the Vallejo Steps and is just 1.5 blocks away from North Beach where all the wonderful cafes and restaurants are located. It's a 15-minute walk to downtown financial district and a 10-minute walk to Coit Tower. It's a 10-minute bus ride or a 20-minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf, and the same to Union Square. Chinatown is just 3 blocks away. The location could not have been any better! Keyless entrance to the property!
Our downstairs neighbor, Dennis, is the 'Mayor' of the Vallejo Steps. He and his dog, Abby, will be able to assist you with any questions you may have. The cul-de-sac in front of our building has great view of downtown SF Financial District, water and the Bay Bridge and it always attracts tourists and locals to this special spot. There is also a wonderful and well maintained garden along the Vallejo Steps. The famous Telegraph Hill parrots visit our apartment around 3-4pm in the afternoon every day. You won't miss them because you will hear them first!
Now here is a brief description of our apartment:
The living room and the office / 2nd bedroom have great view of the downtown Financial District. The 2nd bedroom has a Full sized futon. The den has a new Full sized futon that can comfortably accommodate 2 people. It sleeps 6 but we limit to 4.
The bedroom has a California King bed. It's very quiet so it will allow you a good night sleep after a fun day exploring San Francisco!
The bathroom has a rain shower head that will provide you a great showering experience and wash your tiredness away!
The kitchen is fully equipped for you to cook gourmet meals if you are not in the mood to explore all the wonderful restaurants that North Beach has to offer. We love our brand new LG fridge and gas range. We hope you will enjoy your cooking experience in our kitchen. New TV in Kitchen so you can cook and watch FoodTV. Bonus!
The apartment has a brand new LG washer and dryer that are fantastic and easy to operate. We love these well built machines! If you don't feel like doing the laundry yourself, there are wash and fold services just 1.5 blocks away on Grant Ave.
Generally you don't need a car to get around San Francisco. If you do need a car, our Toyota Tacoma is available for rental here: http://goo.gl/Vmw6S, or here: http://www.getaround.com/tommypjr
Parking is difficult in North Beach. Parking is available for $20 a day at our parking spot that's just a block away from the apartment.
We hope you will enjoy your stay at our apartment and leave your heart in San Francisco and come back again soon!

You cannot beat the location. If you are in SF for a short or long stay, you will be perfectly positioned for most of what's great about our amazing city. While our flat is not luxurious, its very cute, bright and clean and will suit your needs from relaxing to entertaining a few guests, etc. its equipped with brand new appliances, top of the line LG fridge and washer/dryer. Since its been renovated, no one has lived there so you will not feel like you are living in someone else's personal space.
Quiet dead end street, Telegraph Hill Parrots, Dennis (the 'Mayor) our downstairs neighbor and his dog Abby are a fountain of local knowledge. He can always be found puttering around out front.
